Are there lockers available to rent at Disney World?

Can I see both the Halloween Party (MNSSHP) and the Christmas Party (MVMCP) on the same trip?

The Halloween and Christmas parties at Magic Kingdom are extremely popular but you may be having a tough time trying to decide just which one you're going to pick to attend. But, what if you didn't have to choose? What if you could see both Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) AND Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) plus the Food & Wine festival over at Epcot all on the same trip? You can! The key is to be there for the very last Halloween party and the very first Christmas party. Amazingly, there is generally only about a weeks turnaround for the Cast Members to switch out all indications of fall with Magic Kingdom's iconic Christmas decorations. So - if you have a trip that is lasting a week, you'll be able to hit up both parties! The rest of the parks (and resorts) will start their transformations to Christmas around this time, too, however, Magic Kingdom is generally done first.

If you are new to Disney World or if you haven't ever paid much attention to Disney's PhotoPass service you may be thinking that a "Magic Shot" is when somebody at Epcot (over the age of 21, of course) consumes a bit of alcohol out of one of those containers they market as "toothpick holders". That my friends is just a plain ol' "shot". Yes, you may be drinking it at Disney World but it's still just called a "shot".

When do the dessert parties at Disney World open up for booking?

I wish I could tell you how many times a week we get asked this question. And that makes total sense because the process for booking dessert parties has gotten pretty confusing in recent years.   Disney publicizes that the dessert parties open up for booking at 180 days (like dining reservations) and while that may be true sometimes, it definitely isn't true ALL of the time.   In fact, more often than not you'll find that those pesky dessert parties don't open up at 180 days. Or even at 90 days. Sometimes they don't even open up at 60 days.   And, there really isn't any rhyme or reason to it. Well, at least not to "us" non-Disney employed folks there isn't.
