Disney Updates

Thanks to a very busy October with the gift card giveaway I ran, I have been crazy busy dedicating my time to new and current guests and unable to update my blog as much as I like. I wanted to do a little recap of all the things I would have posted about.

Disney Villain After Hours

The Disney Villains are returning to the Magic Kingdom in 2020 for more Evil Evenings at After Hours. This Extra-Ticket event is a fantastic time in Magic Kingdom. Lines are short, entertainment is fabulous, merchandise & food is themed after your favorite villains and you never know who you may run into! Treats such as popcorn & soda are all-you-care-to-eat at this event as well so you will not go hungry!

Hades & Meg will be leading a stage show that will showcase some other Disney greats. Hades & Meg! Where else do you get to see these guys?!? So exciting. With this After Hours ticket, you can enter the park as early as 7 pm – this means you can catch the fireworks before heading off to enjoy attractions and Villainous fun! The events will take place select evenings from February 7th – July 10. This is a great add-on to any vacation package. You can get SO much done in the time you have because of the lower crowds.

If you are traveling during this time and would like to discuss adding it to your vacation package, contact me today!

Disney Wonder Update

The Disney Wonder has added new spaces for guests to enjoy and they look fantastic. The French Quarter Lounge is a new space for families to enjoy. This lounge brings your favorite Bayou Princess to life and has several nods to “The Princess and The Frog”. If you are looking for an “adult only” area, cafe cove is the newest spot added to the ship. In addition, Disney’s Teen guests will enjoy a club exclusively to them at Vibe. Here is a short video that discusses these wonderful new enhancements:

In Holiday New, Disney World & Disneyland both came out with some great announcements:

Castaway Cay 5K

If you’re going to run, why not do it in Paradise?!

January 15th, 2020, the Disney Dream will set sail from Port Canaveral on a 4-night sailing headed to Castaway Cay. There, guests who ran in at least one race the weekend prior in Walt Disney World will be able to partake in the Castaway Cay Challenge.

Runners will run a 5K through Disney’s beautiful private island before being able to kick back and relax with family and friends. Each runner will receive a special medal that has not yet been revealed, all before the delicious buffet lunch served on the island.

The race is the cherry on top of an amazing Cruise and time in Disney’s Castaway Cay. What an awesome opportunity!!

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!
