img_1422-1.jpg

Disney World is expensive, so saving money on Disney World simply makes it less expensive, not inexpensive. That said, right now you can stack two deals to drop the price of adult Disney World tickets to about $74 per day on a four day ticket, which is probably as low as you can realistically hope for on a per day basis unless you are buying a really long ticket or hold an annual pass and are going into the parks…

Disney World is special pretty much 365 days a year, but on a few nights per year the special quotient is upped even higher via some themed holiday events that take place at The Magic Kingdom. Two of these annual special events are Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Not surprisingly, these are pretty popular events so planning ahead is even more crucial than normal. We enjoyed the heck out of Mickey’s Not So…

2017 Disney Ticket Price Increases Announced

Halloween and Disney World together is like the best of the best.

I posted a couple days ago that on the heels of many fun Disney announcements about new lands opening and new shows starting that we were also probably on the verge of hearing about the annual Disney ticket price increases. Turns out, that price hike day looks like it will be today, February 12th. Not only is Disney increasing ticket prices as anticipated, but most unfortunately it seems they will be adding expiration dates to all Disney World tickets and passes,…

Beat Expected Disney Price Increase and Four Big Disney Updates!

Happily Ever After

In my tenure as a parent there are lots of things that change constantly, but there are two things I can count on to become more expensive every single year. Those two things are the cost of pre-school tuition and the cost of Walt Disney World tickets. This time of year, it is practically a certainty that we will get notice that the cost of both of those things is going up. The only question is how big is in…

Using the Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit to Purchase Tickets to Disney

Halloween and Disney World together is like the best of the best.

These days lots of premium rewards credit cards come with an annual travel credit of some sort that you either lose or use each year. Some of these credits such as the Amex Platinum $200 airline incidental fee credit run on a calendar year schedule, and others like the Sapphire Reserve $300 travel credit run on a different schedule based on your December statement date. Since we are now into mid-November, it really is time to act on all of…

New Way to Book Discounted Disney World Hotel Rooms!

One discount travel website that I have been a huge, huge fan of for years now is Undercover Tourist. They not only have legitimate discounted Disney World and other theme park tickets available, but now they also have discounted official Disney Hotel rooms, too! For many of our Disney trips I enjoy spending Starwood points to stay at the Swan (a Westin) on Disney property to keep money in my pocket, but sometimes that isn’t possible, or you just want the full…

Inside the Walt Disney Baby Care Centers

Disney Baby Care Center

Traveling with a baby can be rewarding, but it comes with its own set of challenges. From feeding, to changing, to even yes, dealing with blowouts, there are some expected challenges that can be planned for to some degree. Walt Disney World is sort of the master of making family travel as easy and enjoyable as possible, in part by anticipating needs, and so it should be no surprise that each of the four major Walt Disney World theme parks…

Both the Walt Disney World Swan and the Walt Disney World Dolphin resort hotels are Starwood Preferred Guest properties within Walt Disney World in Orlando. The Swan is technically a Westin and the Dolphin is technically a Sheraton, but you wouldn’t really know that if you weren’t told it specifically.  The two properties are connected by a covered walkway and share amenities like a pool complex, beach, etc. These are very large properties with a combined total of over 2,200…
