Christmas in July! – Giveaway Alert**

Green & Red ice Cream! Santa in Board Shorts! Caroling by the Pool! It must be Christmas in July.  It is that time of year where I like to share Holiday Tips, Recipes, Did You Know?’s, and more – all centered around Disney Destinations.  Follow along through the month of July for my daily posts.

July is a great time to start looking into your holiday travel plans as well.  I can never decide which is my favorite kind of trip to help plan – One where the family is at a Disney Destination for the holidays and we plan all through the fall or when I help a guest plan a trip to gift to their loved ones on Christmas morning.   Both are exciting and so much fun. 

Last Christmas in July, I did the 12 days of Christmas with several different tips on how to “wrap” a trip to a Disney Destination and gift it on Christmas morning. I had a lot of fun with these with some of our guests and would love to assist you if it is something you would be interested in.

Along with my daily post, I will be doing a giveaway at the end of the month.  If you book a qualifying trip** between 7/1/21 & 7/31/21 with me to any Disney Destination*, you will be entered to win a $50 Disney Gift Card!

Not planning on traveling any time soon? I will also be doing a referral gift card!  If you refer a guest who books a qualifying reservation, you will be entered into a drawing for an amazon gift card.

My planning services are always free of charge and will save you time, stress, and even money! Not familiar with Disney – I can assist you with it all from start to finish, dining, itineraries, and everything in between.  You’re a Disney pro who could plan and navigate in their sleep?  Reserve through me and plan the whole thing on your own.  Just have me here to wait on long phone holds, apply discounts when they become available, have my knowledge & passion at your disposal, and get you accurate ever-changing information & updates often before they hit the public.

Contact me today!

*Qualifying destinations are not just limited to Disney Destinations.  Universal vacation packages, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Virgin Cruise Lines, & Sandals also qualify and gift card will be for destination reserved.

**All Disney Cruise Line, Aulani – A Disney Resort & Spa, Adventures by Disney, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Virgin Cruise Lines & Sandals packages qualify for entry in drawing.  Disneyland, Walt Disney World, & Universal packages must be 3 night resort stay/3 days of tickets to qualify.

Disney Cruise Line Presents:

The Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship is going to be its most Magical and Majestic yet. I am hoping I am fortunate to sail her with my family in early 2023. She is currently being built in the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. She will set sail for the first time Summer of 2022.

The Wish will be Disney’s 5th ship in its fleet and the first ship to have an actual attraction at sea! The AquaMouse will take the water-coaster to a new level!

In addition to many other innovations, this ship will have The Star Wars:Hyper Space Lounge. A perfectly themed lounge that will be open to families during the day but strictly adults in the evenings.

The Oceaneer Lab will be home to the Marvel Super Hero Academy. It will also have Rapunzel’s Art Studio and an Imagineering Lab! I have always wanted to know what it was like to be an imagineer and it is awesome that kids today will get a chance to find out.

Want to get “Out There” and see this amazing ship and its destinations? Know that “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” and I would love to help you reserve and plan this amazing dream vacation. There are several dates to keep track of for payments, reservations, possible price drops, excursions…etc and often, many calls to make. Let me handle all the stress for you while you and your family get excited for your trip! You receive all my knowledge & complimentary planning services when you reserve your cruise through me – the same price as booking through Disney but with the added value!

Here is when you will be able to reserve:

  • May 17 – Platinum Castaway Club Members
  • May 24 – Gold Castaway Club Members
  • May 25 – DVC Members & Adventures by Disney Insiders
  • May 26 – Silver Castaway Club Members

If you are interested in learning more about the ship & its destinations or would like to discuss pricing and reservations, contact me today! The sooner we get started, the better prepared we will be when these reservations open up!

See Ya Real Soon!

Disneyland Today

To start, Disneyland reservations and park access will look different than it ever has. Here is what you can expect when they first reopen:

Park Tickets

Tickets that were purchased prior to the closure have been adjusted. Guests should review the Know Before You Go listed on the Disneyland website prior to visiting. If you hold a 1-day ticket, you can check HERE to see when they are valid for.

You will need a Park Reservation and a ticket for that park on that day to enter. You can check the park availability calendar HERE. Reservations can be made on a rolling basis 60 days in advance of the day you want to attend.

Park Hopper Tickets

Park Hopping will be available! During your park reservation process, you will select which park you want to attend first during that specific day. At 1pm on that day, you can then utilize your park hopping ticket and hop to the next park. Guests will not be able to join the Rise Against the Resistance queue unless they are in Disneyland to start the day. Hopping from California Adventure to Disneyland will not permit you to join the Queue.

Disney Fastpass

Disney Fastpass service will not be operational when the park initially opens. Disney will use the additional queue space to allow for proper social distancing. Disney Maxpass will also be unavailable to start.

Park Feature Availability

Upon reopening, guests may visit all of their favorite attractions however character interactions will be different and limited and nighttime shows & parades will not be operational. Instead of one-on-one character greetings, guests can enjoy seeing their Disney Favorites from a distance as they cruise by in Character Cavalcades!

Guests must have a Disney Account in order to make park reservations.

The Disneyland App will be invaluable to use for mobile ordering, maps & GPS, theme park hours & other important times, Dining Reservations, Mobile Check-in for reservations, joining wait times for restaurants, and more!
