Rumored Deal for 2013

Hi there Disney friends!

So like I said I am planning to be a better blogger, so here I am!

Ok so there is a spectacular deal being rumored to be available starting January 3rd!  It is rumored to be up to 30% off rooms and discounts on park tickets if you add them to your room package!  Discounted tickets is unheard of usually, so this really is a great deal.  Usually you get a discounted room OR some other sort of discount, so to have them combined is truly awesome!  The deal runs from February 18th to June 14th and is available at most resorts, the one we know for sure that will be most likely blocked is the Art of Animation Little Mermaid Rooms.  You can book this deal between the dates of January 3rd and May 31st.

Please contact me to inquire more.  The phone lines will be crazy when this deal is offered, so be sure to let me know what you want ahead of time so I can have a booking already in place when I call and I can simply make the change!  All you need to do is put down a $200 deposit, although if you are looking at a last minute February trip, your final payment will be due almost imediately!

Keep in mind that the dates for this deal include Spring Break, as well as Star Wars Weekends.  We attended Star Wars Weekends last year and LOVED it!  Look for a review on that in an upcoming post!!

Please keep in mind that this is all speculation right now!  Nothing will be for sure until the deal is officially released, but the source this came from is pretty reliable!

2013 Resolution - Keep Up With My Blog!!'s been a LONG time!!!  My life has been very busy, but that doesn't mean I am not still busy booking Disney trips.  In fact, I think I have more booked for 2013 than I have in any other year.  To say business is going well and I am growing is an understatement!  I couldn't be happier.  I am still doing my part time job at the hospital as well, so that makes for a busy life and doesn't leave me much time to get on here, but for my 2013 resolution I am going to make an effort, to do better with keeping up with this page and my facebook page.  I really want to grow my business, so if you are still reading here or get auto messages of new posts, pass it on to friends!

For now I am going to try and get back into regular postings, so keep a look out!  I'm hoping to double my bookings that I already have for 2013...maybe even have a few giveaways and some fun!!  Bring on the Disney Magic and let's ring in the new year!!

I'll be back with more fun in the upcoming weeks and in the new year! 

Have a Magical Day!!

Tuesday Tip

Hey friends!!!

So my tip for today - off site stroller rental!! We rented a stroller on our September 2011 trip for the first time ever. I am the mommy of a 6 and 4 year old. In the past we have always brought our own stroller(s). My son would be in the big travel system and my daughter in the MacLaren. Well our last trip I wanted a double since my son is tall he was too big for our travel system Graco and I knew my daughter would get tired.

I looked at Disney pricing but come one.... $31/day for a hard plastic stroller that the kids couldn't be comfortable in and we would have to leave it in the park for the walk to the buses or our car. S I started researching off site stroller rental companie. There are ALOT out there! For us we LOVE Kingdom Strollers! The pricing and free options are fantastic and the customer service cannot be beat! Most places require the stroller be returned the morning of your last day. Kingdom Strollers let's you have it until 5pm or later (we texted them and they let us have it til 8pm for NO charge!) and they drop it off either super early the day of your rental or the night before. It's waiting at bell services!

They have a wide array of choices in singles and doubles. For our last trip we rented a Bob Duallie. Pushing around nearly 100 lbs of kids should be hard, but nope it glided with ease! Our next trip we are planning to try the City Elite Double. It fits taller kids a bit better. My daughter will be 6 almost 7 when we go and will probably rarely sit in it but it's only a $10 difference to get a double instead of a single and to be able to offer her a seat in the shade in June is worth it to me! And a safe place to put her in a crowded park!

We go full on at the parks. Usually rope drop to closing with maybe a VERY short break so our kids are tired at the end. Our September trip they fell asleep in the stroller on our way out almost every night. We used it to get to our car in the parking lot then transferred them to the car and then back to the stroller to walk to our room.

Here's a shot of the stroller being used well!!

Where Have I Been.....

Hello all from the worst Disney blogger ever!!!

Where have I been you ask????!!!!  Well that's semisimple...busy!  Last June I started working outside the home and outside of my Disney fix - this blog and travel planning.  I had gone to school 6 months before that and trained to become a phlebotomist - you know the people that take blood from you!  :-)  Well in June I finally landed a job doing it.  It's only part time, but I get to pick up as many hours as I want and usually I pick up at least a couple shifts a week, the rest of the time is spent transporting kids here there and everywhere!!  Life was so calm a year ago....but the money is good and it helps pay for my Disney trips!!

That said I'm going to try and devote some more time here!  That's my goal and my plan anyway.  I have to look back and see what I've already wrote about and try to pick up where I left off.  My plan is to try and get a bunch of posts scheduled once a week and then that way it's an active blog again.

I'm also going to head over to my business page and give it some tweeking!!  I really love Disney planning and want to get back into it!!

If you are anyone you know is thinking about a trip, please let me know!  I'd be happy to help!!!  Also if you have a trip booked with Disney, not another agent - we don't steal from each other, professional courtesy - and you would like to transfer it over to me, it really is a simple process!!  I'll do most of the heavy lifting for the transfer and all of the heavy lifting with your trip planning, or as much as you want me to do!  For your trouble you get a $25 Disney Gift Card!!! 

Thanks for all that have stuck with me while I make these transitions and adjustments!! 

Have a Disney Day!  :-)
