The question of “should I rent a car?” is a big one when it comes to planning out your Walt Disney World vacation, and before you can answer it, you might want to ask yourself these questions:
Will You Visit The World Outside of WDW? There is PLENTY to do at Walt Disney World, but if you decide you want to venture off property, then you will be rewarded with many many more entertainment and dining options, many people choose to travel to beaches, Universal Studios, the Kennedy Space Center, or Downtown Orlando while visiting WDW, and the easiest way to get to these places is by car, so I highly recommend you rent a car if you decide to experience the world outside of Disney.
Just as a refresher, what is Dapper Day at Disney and where did it all begin? Organizer Justin Jorgensen is said to have been inspired by the original Imagineer Illustrations of Disney Park designs. These images often portray guests dressed as though they are going out for a very upscale event such as an opera or a maybe a high-end restaurant. Why shouldn’t going to Disney still be on par with such grand affairs? Well, that is what Dapper Day is all about. It is a chance to realize those designer’s dreams. On Dapper Day, you bring those illustrations to life when you become those well dressed guests the designers imagined (or hoped) would be filling the park.
The coming celebration is expected to be an “evening affair.”
Are you familiar with Disney’s PhotoPass+? On our last Walt Disney World trip my family stepped it up and tried out the new PhotoPass+ option. What did we think? PhotoPass+ is a great addition to our Disney trips and worth every penny! There are a ton of benefits of adding PhotoPass+ to your upcoming Disney vacation. Some of the benefits included in Disney’s PhotoPass+ are:
- Preorder the PhotoPass+ package 14 days prior to your trip for $149 versus the $199.95 price tag in the parks! (Plus tax where applicable.)
- Disney PhotoPass+ card and lanyard
Most people who have been to the Walt Disney World Resort have heard of the Hidden Mickeys you can find throughout the resort. However, do you know exactly how many Hidden Mickeys there really are? Steven M. Barrett has just published the sixth edition of his Hidden Mickeys books, “Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney’s World Best Kept Secrets.”
Barrett defines Hidden Mickeys as “partial or complete images of Mickey Mouse that Disney “Imagineers” have designed to blend into their surroundings in such a way that their presence is not immediately obvious.” He has documented more than 1,200 Hidden Mickeys at the Walt Disney World Resort. This latest edition also includes twenty-seven new Hidden Mickeys found in New Fantasyland, the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history.
