I never thought I would be doing this, but I love Disney so much so the thought of writing about my experiences in Disney just makes my heart happy!
I have lived in New England for 32 years and have enjoyed Disney World 14 times! My husband and I began our first week as Husband and wife in Disney in 1999. As all of you know, it is such a magical place. We can’t deny them that one!
I would like to talk a little bit about the extras that they have in Disney. When we went this past August, it was my 3 year olds first time in Disney. Of course he watches Handy Manny and the rest of the Playhouse Disney gang, but this was totally different! He was going to be there! How exciting!!
We decided that this trip was going to be the trip that we stayed in the park. The Pop Century Resort was the winner. We went the last week in August so we were able to get the dining plan for free! (Well, we upgraded so it was a little bit more expensive but completely worth it)
I wanted this trip to be perfect for him. My 10 year old (who has been 4 times himself) and I started having Disney Mondays (while Daddy was at Fire Training) On Disney Mondays, we would make something that we love for supper and we would watch a Disney movie. The kids loved it so much. After the movie was over, we would go online and see all the fun stuff they had at the parks. While we were doing our “research” as he called it, we stumbled across so many really neat things!
The first thing that we came across was the Customized Disney maps. Disney will create a map specifically for your family. We picked all of the attractions that we would be interested in and in another 2 weeks, we got the maps and they were so nice! There were additional suggestions on the map as well as stickers to mark the map up with. We used them the whole trip!
The other thing I did was order my 10 year old some pins for Pin Trading. He read up on the rules it really was a lot of fun!! My little one had no interest what so ever in it, he was way too young to understand it. It was just such a great thing to come up with though. Imagine being a kid in Disney and wanting to trade something and you are never told “no” by the employees. That’s just another great Disney addition!
I called Disney and asked them what I could do to make my trip even more Magical. I knew the dining plan was going to be fantastic, as we were able to go to a table service meal every day and see the characters, but I wanted to do more. I was able to book the boys for the Pirates League which was a huge hit! What an amazing face painting job! You really get a lot for $29.95 (which is the base package) and the experience of it all was amazing for the whole family.
Our trip was amazing. From Space Mountain to Playhouse Disney Live, Disney is a one of a kind family vacation!
