Free Dining 2018 and Room Only Discounts

Who wants free dining? Or maybe you prefer a discount on your room? Either way today is the day because both offers were released early this morning and as usual I was up bright and early working to get those discounts for my valued clients.

Before we get into the details of the free dining offer you need to understand a few things. The dates are limited and so are the rooms. Just because Disney has a room does not mean it qualifies for the free dining (or the room only discount for that matter.) The Disney website is getting crushed today and is experiencing technical difficulties (expect to see Stitch a lot.) The phone lines are also being hammered so expect long wait times if you try to call in. Continue reading Free Dining 2018 and Room Only Discounts

Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing?

Is Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing?

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.

Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing
As you can see Pizza Planet suffers from being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

So maybe Pizza Planet is not closing for good. Maybe it is just moving to a new home. We can hope!

 

Change Coming To Disney Quick Service Seating?

Change Coming To Disney Quick Service Seating

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?
