For Your Haunted Mansion Fangirl (or Boy)

Who doesn’t love the spooky, morbid, tongue-in-cheek ghoulishness of the Haunted Mansion? If you have an HM fan to buy for, check out these fun finds.

She will be the belle of the cocktail party dressed up in the Haunted Mansion Hostess Apron. Extra points if she manages to scowl in sinister fashion throughout the gathering!

New Year’s Eve Celebration at Yacht & Beach Club Resort to Feature Adventurers Club Entertainment

New Year’s Eve celebrations aren’t hard to come by when you’re ringing in the New Year in Disney World!

New Year's Eve Toast

New Year’s Eve Toast

Maybe you’ll be welcoming 2016 with a special showing of Wishes at the Magic Kingdom or Illuminations at Epcot. And, of course, every year there are extra admission-required events also available for guests to choose from.

We shared some of the special holiday happenings taking place on December 31st at locations like Monsieur Paul, Le Cellier, and California Grill in a previous post. But for those looking for an extra-big splurge… the Countdown to Midnight might be just the thing to add to your celebration.

The Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center will be the setting for this special event, which Disney is billing as a Progressive “3-in-1” Party featuring food and cocktails, as well as live entertainment and music.

The celebration begins at 8:00 PM (with check-in starting at 7:30 PM). First, take a walk down nostalgia lane while enjoying an “interactive comedy reunion at the Adventurer’s Club(after stopping for a cocktail, beer, or wine at an open bar). Second, Club Live will set the stage for dancing to a live 9-piece band. Third, Club Vinyl will feature a 7-piece band playing jazzed-up versions of music from today in a “Preservation Hall” setting.

Additionally, special guest star Vanessa Williams has joined the lineup as the event’s headliner. 

Sunrise at Disney World!

Buffet and dessert stations and drinks are included with admission. And just before midnight, it will be time to put on a New Year’s Eve hat or tiara for the big countdown into 2016. Once the clock strikes twelve, a balloon drop and confetti blast will welcome the New Year, along with a champagne toast using your keepsake glass. [Read more…]

We are back with episode 26 of the DFB Podcast! dining with kids at Disney World and Disneyland!

What’s It About?
Last minute trip? Change in plans? Need to get a Disney trip on the books FAST? I’m all for it, but you may run into a little problem when it comes to booking beloved and popular Disney restaurants at the last minute.

We have a solution!

In this episode we discuss what options you have when you can’t get a reservation at the most popular Disney dining locations. Nothing available at Cinderella’s Royal Table? No reservations to be had at California Grill? Chef Mickey’s all booked up? No worries! We’ve got some awesome “second choice” restaurants (some of which are better than the “first choice” restaurants in our opinion!) that will be much easier to book for a last minute trip.
