My Goal in 2020 is to run a race at Disney. I have been to Disney during races, and I have supported other racers but never raced myself. I am hoping to change that next year. I enjoy running and what could be better than doing it at Walt Disney World.

Disney just made it easier to book your race weekend trips. Now, we can reserve your room, tickets, AND your race registration. All at once! Done! It makes things more seamless for guests and it helps me offer you even more great customer service options.

We are now able to book for the January Marathon, Princess Marathon, and the Star Wars Marathon for 2020 pending availability. Let’s get it going!

New Fireworks Spectacular for Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party

Hallowishes was a fantastic Fireworks display and was one of my favorite parts about the Disney World Halloween party. Disney has decided to replace it this year with an all new Spectacular and I think it is going to be amazing.

For those of you who have had the opportunity to see “Happily Ever After”; the Magic Kingdom night time show that leaves guests with goosebumps and the happiest kind of tears, this will be modeled after that. It will add projections on the castle as well as the lasers, special effects and of course, a beautiful fireworks display. The story will be about Mickey and his friends as they go on a Trick-or-Treating adventure and some of the not-so-scary things they can encounter. We are attending in early September so I will report back about the new show!

In addition to the new show, your favorites will return including the famous “Boo to You” parade, character dance parties, meet & greets with rare characters and of course, trick-or-treating!

Here is more information on the party: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
