So the worst blogger in the world is back!! I hope that my readers are still around and will still enjoy what I have to say. :-) I am sorry I went MIA, but as you will see in this post below, life has been crazy!! So here it is the return of Magical Mondays!! Yay!!
Disney has two promos out currently for Walt Disney World Resort!
First - Play, Stay and Dine! This is a great promotion! Basically it works out to be that adults are paying child pricing for the park tickets and better yet, the dining plan! It works a bit like free dining - value resorts have the quick service plan (you can upgrade to plus dining) and moderates and deluxe resorts have the plus dining plan. Play, Stay and Dine is available for a week in December - for those last minute getaways! - and for dates from January 5 - March 7. (NOTE: The webpage Disney gave us to use says March 28 - but that must be a mistake because it is not bookable that far out. March 7 is the correct end date. You do have the ability to book on the 7th and have it carry into mid March!)
Second - there is a late winter room discount that can have package elements added on! This is January 5 - March 28! (see how the maybe made a mistake here...lol) It is for up to 30% off your room rate. This can be a great savings! Important to note that room discounts cannot be extended the way a package deal can be. March 28 will end the promotional rate.
Both discounts are available to be booked through December 29. Expect to see a spring promotion for April, May and June sometime in early January if they continue the same pattern as years past!! If you already have booked your trip - no worries, I am watching out for you and will get your reservation transferred to the promo the day it is released!!
Around the World News:
Disney quickly closed up fall and welcomed winter over the last two weeks! Magic Kingdom is the first park to hit full swing with the holidays! Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party was whisked out on October 31 and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party began on November 7! Holiday fun is popping up slowly all over the place over the month of November. Trees being set, decorations going up in the resorts, it truly is a magical time to visit Walt Disney World! Osbourne Lights are also in full swing at Hollywood Studios! This is not to be missed!! One of my favorite holiday traditions in WDW!
There are some traditions that have been changed to push the new Frozen craze that is running through WDW. The Castle Lighting Ceremony at Magic Kingdom is now called a Frozen Holiday Wish. Elsa, Anna, Kristof and Olaf (making is grand debut) welcome guests and Elsa freezes the castle. It is sad to not see Mickey and Minnie and Cinderella not be a part of this any longer. I thought that Anna and Elsa were a welcome addition and made sense - I mean come on Elsa freezes things, who better to freeze the castle? - but Cinderella needs to be part of her castle lighting ceremony!
Holidays around the World will begin in Epcot on November 28!
Santa has arrived to Downtown Disney! Go catch him out front of World of Disney! You can take your own photos or there is a photopass photographer there taking pictures too - did you get the memory maker?! :-)
What's New With Me?
Well there has been a lot going on! That is why you haven't seen posts from me. I have to get better at time management! :-) I am trying to do that. I am planning to have some of you and my Facebook friends maybe write some guest blogs about experiences they have. I have done A LOT in WDW, but not everything, so if you have experienced I would love to hear about it and have you share your experience with my readers. Contact me and we can get the ball rolling on that.
I brought another agent on last spring - Erin. She has been doing great. I have brought on another agent - Jessica. We are still getting her all set up, but I am anxious to introduce you all to her! She is a former client, with a love of all things Disney! Welcome Jessica!!
My kids are in a million and one activities and growing up way to fast! We are nonstop moving and when I am not being a mom to them I am busy booking and planning trips! As I have said before, I truly love my job. There is nothing better! Especially when a magical moment happens and I am able to secure something a guest has been wishing for. I work on your trip up until you get home and I am here for you if you had any issues while there. I will get you the proper contact information to let Disney know what happened.
Ok well that is all for now!! Let me know if you are ready to book your Disney trip today!! :-)
