One of my FAVORITE things about Disney World and planning Disney World trips is that there are so many ways to get creative! Do you guys know what the Epcot passports are? WELL - all the countries in Epcot have these handy little stations called Kidcot Fun Stops. They are generally just a table with some art supplies tucked into a corner of each pavilion but don't let their unassuming nature confuse you because they are a VERY cool idea!
One of the best parts about visiting Walt Disney World is all of the great dining options available! Where else but Disney World can you dine in the West Wing of the Beast’s castle or sit in the back of a car shaped booth while watching retro movie clips? One of the most popular destinations for unique dining is Epcot where Disney makes it possible to "dine around the world" in a single day. But, do you need a park ticket to dine in one of the Epcot restaurants? Yes, you do. But don’t let that get you down. If you're looking for someplace amazing to dine at Disney World there are plenty of other great options to choose from outside of the parks!
One of the nice things about staying in an Epcot-area resort is the ability to walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Boat transportation is available, but can be slower, require long waits for the next boat, and sometimes they fill up during busy times. The trek between the parks is a brisk 15-minute walk. At Epcot, this path can be found by exiting the International Gateway (located near the UK pavilion), heading toward the Beach Club, then continuing toward the Swan/Dolphin, and then on to Hollywood Studios. If you're at Hollywood Studios, you can take the path along the water which will lead you toward Epcot. Not sure where to go or uncertain you're headed the right way? Just ask a Cast Member who will be able to point you in the right direction. Learn about more paths you can take while at Disney World to save yourself some time.
The holiday season is a very exciting time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! In addition to all of the decorations at both the parks and resorts, there are also several special events occurring at Disney World during this time of the year. One of the most popular of these events is the Candlelight Processional. So what exactly is the Candlelight Processional and do you need to book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package to see it? The answer to the dining package question is no, you don’t NEED to book it to see it. However, having a dining package definitely helps!
Travelling with infants or small children isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish. Luckily, the folks at Walt Disney World help to make it a little less challenging by providing guests vacationing with little ones access to handy Baby Care Centers. These centers are convenient, well-stocked, and best of all - free! Think your family might want to use a Baby Care Center on your next trip? Keep reading to find out why we think you should...
One of the best parts about visiting Walt Disney World is having the opportunity to meet all of your favorite characters. Luckily, Disney World provides plenty of opportunities to do just that. There are character dining experiences both within the parks and at the resorts and, if dining with the characters isn't your thing, you'll find dedicated meet and greet locations within the parks - including some that even have the opportunity to book Fastpasses for them! But, did you know there are also exclusive meet and greet opportunities for guests? Yep. And if you have a Disney Visa credit or debit card you'll want to keep reading to find out more about these free experiences!
