Disney World is well known for their amazing holiday celebrations throughout the year. Though some holidays are celebrated more than others, most have some sort of celebration for guests to enjoy the special day they’re spending at Disney. Mardi Gras is no different except that this celebration we’re going to talk about is not in the parks but at a resort.
As we all know, Disney puts a premium price on everything they offer and sell: resorts, food, merchandise, tickets, and even spa services. This is part of their premium service and value they provide to their guests, and one of the many reasons we love visiting so often. But is there ever a time when pricing at Walt Disney World isn’t more expensive than an average price somewhere else? As a matter of fact, there is, and it’s at their Senses spa.
Starting February 10, Disney PhotoPass now offers guests a way to take home some magical memories that are unique to you and your family. You can pay to have a Disney PhotoPass Photographer spend 20-40 minutes with you and your family and take pictures, capturing your special memories. We went and reviewed this new service for ourselves opening day, and here is all of the information and what we thought of the experience.
Changes are constantly happening at the Walt Disney World resorts with new dining options, updates to the rooms, activities, and more. One of the recent changes to the wording and booking options on Disney’s website involved two of Disney’s moderate resorts. This booking change effects how many adults can now book a 5th sleeper room. This policy change could effect a lot of families in the near future, so let’s go over what the website bookings now allow and have changed.
Everyone loves the idea of the holidays at The Most Magical Place on Earth, but many never get to enjoy the holidays here or have to choose which one to celebrate at Disney World. As we’ve spent our year living here in the Walt Disney World Resorts, we of course have been able to celebrate each holiday here. Some we’ve enjoyed more than others, but the most recent one we celebrated was Thanksgiving. We enjoyed the day and went to Magic Kingdom to see the crowd levels and find out if there were any special things going on for the holiday.
Disney is always working to improve and better the parks, the food, and the resorts as well. With the huge 50th celebration coming quickly in 2021, Disney is making sure many of their resorts get a nice update before the grand celebration.
Every major holiday is celebrated in some way by each of the Walt Disney World resorts. Some have activities as simple as having holiday-themed games while others go all out with decorations, costume contests, and free candy and prizes. Halloween is no exception to this tradition, and we went to every Disney resort to find out what they were doing to celebrate this fun, candy-filled day. We’ll start with the Value Resorts and go up from there, ending with the villas.
Many of you know that we have gone to every Mickey’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party this year thanks to the new MNSSHP Season Pass Disney offered for guests. This pass was $300 and allowed access to every MNSSHP except Halloween night. We have just a few left before this year’s Halloween party season is over, but we wanted to talk a little about why we’ve enjoyed having this as an option and hope Disney offers this again in future years.
At Animal Kingdom Lodge: Jambo House and Animal Kingdom Lodge: Kidani Village, there are a series of activities where guests can earn “beads” to have a special keepsake to take home at the end of your trip. There are many free activities at the Walt Disney World Resorts, but none are as educational as the ones that correspond with the bead activity at Animal Kingdom Lodge. This fun and educational series of games and learning are done at both Jambo House and Kidani Village. When you check in to either, you can ask for the activity guide showing the times of each or ask any recreations cast member for one during one of the activities.
While there are many amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World, often families want to just have a home-cooked meal while at Disney or are trying to save money. One way to do so is by having groceries delivered to your resort. This saves you from having to pack everything ahead of time and risk something spilling or getting squished and ensures you can take your time ordering so you don’t miss anything and have things delivered when you need them.
