We're Going Live!

In 2020, I am going to be doing monthly updates via Facebook Live. I am aiming for the second Sunday of every month but that may change in the case of a holiday (or a research-based Disney Trip). I would love for you to join me.

I will gather the information I learn directly from Disney each month and then hop on Facebook Live to share it all, answer questions, and explain anything that may need an explanation. It is a great way for you to keep up on updates, closures, refurbishments, discounts, and more.

October Giveaway!!

Happy Fall, Y’all!!

Gone are the days of swimming pools & BBQ’s.  Bring on all the pumpkin, trick or treating, crisp air & bonfires.  As 2019 winds down, I have set a business challenge for myself for October and I need your help! My goal is 13 new reservations in October (spooky month, spooky number!). 

This is where you come in!  Any Disney or Universal package booked in the Month of October will receive an entry into a drawing for a $50 gift card for Disney or Universal! Travel can be anytime between now and the end of 2020.   Disney Packages require 3 night stay and 3 day park tickets.  Universal Packages require 2 night stay and 2 day park-to-park tickets.  Any Disney Cruise, Adventure by Disney, and Aulani: A Disney Resort & Spa Package count.  If this package is booked for a check in date in 2019, you will receive 2 entries! Perfect time to book a holiday reservation and see Disney decorated for Christmas or book a Very Merrytime Cruise!

Each day I will post on Facebook a countdown of my favorite hints and tips for Walt Disney World and Universal Studios so be sure to follow me at https://www.facebook.com/wdwdreamsintomemories/. These hints and tips will give you a great idea of all the knowledge I share with my guests when I am assisting with their vacation planning.

Already reserved or not planning on traveling in the contest time frame? You can still help me AND win a contest of your own! If you have traveled with me before you know that I get all my clients through referrals from satisfied guests.  You know that I put everything I have into each guest’s reservation and that my level of service is unprecedented.  These referrals are how I can continue to help more families and do what I absolutely love to do.  Anyone who refers a guest during the month of October will receive an entry into a drawing for a Starbucks Gift Card (or Amazon for those of you who don’t need coffee to survive). There is NO limit to how many entries you can get – if you refer 3 guests, you will receive 3 entries. 

BONUS: If I reach my goal of 13 reservations in October, I will do an additional swag giveaway.  Both the referrers and the travelers will receive one entry and the winner will get the choice of a Disney or Universal gift.  Gift Cards will go out after final payment is made for guest’s trip.  If bonus is met, swag giveaway will go out as soon as drawing is completed.

(Previous Reservations do not qualify. I’m sorry, I appreciate you, but this is about 13 in October)

Don’t forget about our Minnie Box! Qualifying reservations will receive this gift from the “Disney Earmarked Agency” I work for! It is full of magic & surprises. It arrives just prior to your departure and will get your family even more excited about their trip!

THANK YOU for all your support.  I look forward to helping turn more dreams into memories in October and for years to come!

HUGE Universal News!

Epic Universe

Like, “New Park” Huge News! Universal Orlando is adding a 4th theme park. So far, we have been told that it will offer completely epic experiences and be completely immersive (think The Wizarding World). Each part of the land will be dedicated to a different story. Guests will travel through these stories and go on amazing adventures. I cannot wait for them to confirm what these lands will be comprised of.

This new Epic Universe will be located on the other side of Kirkman Road. It will not be directly attached to the other parks. Epic Universe will have its own hotels, shopping, entertainment area, restaurants, and more.

Check back later as the details unfold!

Update: Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

© 2019 Universal Studios

We have the first photos and some video of this ride and it…is….awesome! I am giddy over how immersive and detailed it is! Still scheduled to open June 13th, this ride is blowing away records left and right. Here are some facts direct from Universal themselves:

  • This will take us beyond Hogwarts – Mostly taking place in the Forbidden Forest, this attraction will take us to a whole new part of the Wizarding World
  • New Environments & Sets – Inside never before seen ruins, you will be able to see habitats where Hagrid Kept his Blast-Ended Skrewts, dragon eggs that he is currently nursing that are just about to hatch, and many more materials used during his Care of Magical Creatures Class. Let’s not forget some familiar faces that we will see as well – Arthur Weasley, Hagrid, and even Fang
  • Most Launches – This coaster will have 7 launches, the most of any coaster in the world
  • Vertical Drop! – You will be dropped, vertically, 17 feet
  • Longest Roller Coaster in Florida – Nearly a mile
  • Two Different “Rides” – Your riding in Hagrid’s Motorbike, choose from riding the bike or riding in the sidecar
  • Will launch you 65 ft into the air at a 70 Degree angle, then drop you straight backward in one smooth motion

The unpredictability of this ride is going to be crazy and so exciting! I cannot wait! Tip: Riding this at night will feel even more authentic! Check out a sneak peek video below:
