Using The Disney Vacation Account (Updated September 24, 2016)
Have you ever heard of the Disney Vacation Account? If you have not you are not alone. I know Disney travel agents who do not even know it exists. Or maybe you have heard of it but have no idea how it works or if it is right for your family.
Either way you have come to the right place today. I am going to do my best to explain what it is and how it works. Whether it is right for you or not is up to you but I hope you will have enough information to make the right decision for your family.
Are you a fan of the Kermit, Mrs Piggie, and all their muppet friends? Well these is good news for you! Starting October 2nd Disney will debut a new Muppets show at the Magic Kingdom.
There are not many details on the new show yet but we do know a few things. The new Muppets show is called, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.” The show will take place in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom. Continue reading New Muppets Show Invades Magic Kingdom→
The Disney Dining Plan can be a controversial subject. Some call it a great value but others call it a rip off. Many people dream of free dining when Disney offers it free as an incentive to book rooms. Whatever you may think of the Disney Dining Plan it is changing in 2017.

Disney World height requirements are something that parents live in fear of. They hate the idea that their little pirate or princess just cannot do everything at Disney World. Unfortunately there are certain attractions that little ones might have to wait a few more years to experience. Continue reading Disney World Height Requirements→
Lights Motors Action Closing will be closing on April 2, 2016. This announcement follows a long list of closures at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in preparation for the Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land expansions. Continue reading Lights Motors Action Closing→
Disney at Christmas sounds like a great idea. And it can be. Walt Disney World goes all out to transform the theme parks and the resorts into a celebration of Christmas. There are Christmas trees, special shows and even a Christmas party. It might even snow on Main Street USA.
The fact that Disney has announced a nearly year long refurbishment has many people asking, ” Is Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing?” While at first the idea seems crazy (Pizza Planet is very popular!) there are some very good reasons to consider it.
First is the fact that it will be closed from January to November. That suggests more than just updating and giving everything a fresh coat of paint. It suggests a complete overhaul. It suggests that the building that houses Pizza Planet today is going to house something totally different come November.
Second is location. Like the real estate agents tell you it is all about location. Pizza Planet is located right next to the Star Tours -The Adventure Continues. That location seems prime to be the center point of the new Star Wars Land and a Toy Story themed Pizza Planet would create a disturbance in the Force.
Speaking of locations Star Wars is not the only new land coming to Hollywood Studios. Toy Story is getting its own land. But where will it go? Disney is in the process of adding a third track to Toy Story Midway Mania which is probably the most popular ride at Hollywood Studios. So the logical place to place Toy Story Land is near the already existing attraction. That attraction, as you can see from the map below, is half-way across the park.
So maybe Pizza Planet is not closing for good. Maybe it is just moving to a new home. We can hope!
Disney Quick Service Seating has always been first come first served (with Be Our Guest being the only exception.) Recent tests conducted at some Quick Service locations could indicate that is about to change.
Walt Disney World is the most popular theme park in the world. It should come as no surprise that there are often long lines for the rides. If you try to eat at the normal meal times you will probably find out there are long lines at the quick service restaurants too. After all everyone has to eat right?
