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.

For those who don’t know, a split stay is when you have two different rooms or resorts you’re staying in during one vacation.

Galaxy’s Edge will be opening on August 29, 2019, and Star Wars fans everywhere are counting down the days to this iconic moment! We had the privilege of visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge twice before the opening this week which was absolutely incredible! We were able to do and see everything and ask tons of questions to find out as much as we could about this new land opening up as part of Hollywood Studios. We are so grateful we were able to enjoy it before the crowds arrive next week; however, we also know we’ll be there many times after it opens because Robert is such a big Star Wars fan.
With the Grand Opening of Galaxy’s Edge just around the corner, many people are working to prepare for that day and visiting in the coming weeks afterwards. We were able to visit Galaxy’s Edge twice before the Grand Opening, and we’ll be among the insane crowd that will be there on opening day, so we wanted to put together a post of what you might need and how to prepare for your visit when you go to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the coming weeks.
If you are an annual Passholder, DVC Member or local resident at Walt Disney World, there is a discount card you are eligible for that can help save you money at Disney restaurants during each of your many trips to Disney World throughout the year. This discount card is called Tables in Wonderland and is offered by Disney through a third-party company. We have used this card as much as possible while living in the Walt Disney World Resorts and had a lot of questions come in about it, so we’re here to answer them.
The Animation Experience opened this past July in Rafiki’s Planet Watch in Animal Kingdom. This new experience is a place for guests to learn how to draw Disney characters from a cast member. This is a fun new experience to bring guests to Animal Kingdom and have another indoor activity for those rainy days.
Toledo Restaurant is located on the 16th floor of the new Gran Destino Tower at Coronado Springs Resort. It’s open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. every night, and we were able to go for dinner on opening night and try some of the food options from their new menu, and we were very impressed with almost everything we ordered. The restaurant is beautiful, and we recommend checking it out if you’re staying at Coronado Springs any time soon.
Three Bridges restaurant at Coronado Springs Resort is literally a restaurant in the middle of the lake at the resort that has three bridges leading to it. It has opened up pathways for resort guests to easily get from one side to the other while also adding a unique dining experience for dinner. Being able to look over and see the water while you’re eating was really neat, and definitely a different feel from all the other Disney restaurants we’ve been to.
