3 things I’m really into right now – PREP148

Today I have a list of three trip add-ons I'm really into right now because they are a good bang for the buck.

I also have a quick tip to help find dining reservations at the times you want.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

3 things I'm into right now

1.) Dessert parties
Disney has made changes to the parties and/or the nighttime shows that make these much more worth it than they used to be. Use this graphic to help you compare.

2.) Dining packages for people on the Disney Dining Plan

  • Available at Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and seasonally at Epcot
  • Same number of credits as non-dining package reservations
  • Dining at non-buffets gives you an appetizer in addition to the entree and dessert

3.) Express transportation for people with Park Hopper tickets
At $19/day or $29/week, it's an inexpensive way to feel like a VIP. Read an overview of how it works.

Quick tip of the day

Lori from Wisconsin emailed in this quick tip:

"I was trying to book an early morning reservation for three at Garden Grill, and wasn't happy with the times available. I increased the number of guests from three to five and did the search again and found that more times opened up. I booked the breakfast for five, then went back in the reservation later and edited back to three guests. So my tip is, if you aren't finding the restaurant availability you want, try increasing the number of guests and more reservations may appear."
