We had the privilege of enjoying one of the IllumiNations fireworks cruises you can book at Walt Disney World as a way to enjoy watching IllumiNations without waiting a long time for a good spot. The view we had was amazing, and the views we got to see before the fireworks were gorgeous. We had a perfect night as far as weather goes, and we loved making new friends during this time.
At Walt Disney World, there are club level lounges at many of the Disney resorts for guests who book these specific room types. Club Level gets you quite a few perks as well as unlimited food and snacks in the lounge during your stay. We’ve had a lot of questions about our club level stays, so we wanted to help answer as many questions as we can in this blog post.
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.
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.
At Walt Disney World, there are so many fun activities and things to do that don’t cost you extra money at the resorts. Of course there are always the fun paid activities too (make your own Mickey ears, paint your own ceramics, fun runs, arcades, boat rentals, and more), but for this blog post, we’re going to focus on the free things you can do and see at the Disney Resorts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
