Holiday snacks are everywhere (and no, we’re not complaining). Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Jollywood Nights have both kicked off. The EPCOT Festival of the Holidays has started. We also just learned about some more holiday fun at Disney World — the kind of fun that does NOT require a park ticket.
Although Disney World’s historic closure and reopening was over three years ago, there are still some things that haven’t yet returned.
Now, don’t get us wrong — we were VERY happy to hear about the return of the Disney Dining Plan, as well as the end of park hopping restrictions in 2024. But we’ve been disappointed that some restaurants remain closed, including one we just found reopened today — well, sort of.
There are a lot of things you can do in Disney World outside the parks…and we mean a LOT.
Outside of the four main parks there are dozens of hotels, two water parks, Disney Springs, golf courses, mini golf courses, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and much more. It would take you weeks, possibly months, to do everything. But the good news is — you don’t have to be staying on property to knock most of those activities off your to-do list!
Sure, it’s still summer, but we can’t help but look forward to Halloween.
First, we are SO ready for all those amazing Halloween treats we’ll get to eat at Disneyland. We’re also excited about the Halloween decorations and the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay. Mostly, though, we are READY for Oogie Boogie Bash, Disney’s Halloween party at Disney California Adventure. Now, we know everything that’s been confirmed for the party so far.
If you’re heading to Disney World, there are plenty of activities you can check out OUTSIDE of the parks.
There’s golf, mini golf, resort hopping, boat rentals, horseback riding, and so much more that you can explore! But one of the most popular spots that visitors check out is Disney Springs. And if you’re looking for prime entertainment in Disney Springs…there’s one spot that stands above the rest!
Have you ever been to a Disneyland After Dark event?
It’s a separately ticketed event that takes place in Disneyland after park hours. Each event has its own theme and includes special activities, meet and greets, snacks, and more. Well, a brand NEW After Dark event is coming to Disneyland soon: Princess Nite. And we’ve got a full list of everything coming to the event!
It’s almost here! We’re talking about the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival!
We’ve already seen a list of some of the food booths set up for the festival, and we just got the full menus for all the booths, as well as learned about everything returning for this year’s event. One of those returning activities is the Garden Graze scavenger hunt, and now we know what foods will be part of it!
Can you believe we’re only a short time away from the start of the 2023 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival?!
It all kicks off on March 1st, and we’ve already had a sneak peek at everything returning for this year’s fest so far. But now, we know the FULL lineup of artists coming to the Garden Rocks Concert Series at the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival this year!
There is almost always some kind of festival going on in EPCOT, and here’s the thing – WE ARE HERE FOR IT.
Festivals bring all kinds of NEW food to try, as well as fun entertainment and activities. The next festival this year is the 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival. Now that we know the dates for the festival, let’s look at everything confirmed for it!
We’re not going to lie to you — a Disney World or Disneyland Resort vacation can be PRICEY.
We’re talking hotel rooms (at least deluxe ones) that can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars a night, tickets that cost more than $100 per day, and meals that are generally a bit more expensive than the ones you find in the outside world. Unfortunately, that typically means that we have to save up to go on a Disney trip…but what about those with unlimited budgets? Well, today we’re talking about how the RICH do Disney!
