Well, it’s time to start thinking about those advance dining reservations, obviously, but you also need to start thinking about what to pack. If you’re someone who also loves to make a hotel stay as convenient as possible, though, you’ll want a few extra items — so we’ve found the most useful things you can bring along to your room for your trip!
But there are also some mistakes you don’t want to make — and they can happen at that crucial check-in and checkout time! You don’t want to miss out on perks and you also don’t want to miss out on other things — so find out everything you need to know here.
Whether you like to order groceries or you realize you forgot something important, there are ways to get deliveries straight to your Disney World hotel.
There are lots of convenient delivery options now, such as through Uber Ears, GrubHub, DoorDash, Amazon Fresh, Walmart, and lots more, and we’re here to talk about one of the most popular ways to get grocery deliveries — Instacart!
How do you beat the heat in Disney World?
Everyone has their own go-to method to escape the weather. You can fast-walk to the closest Dole Whip, seek shelter by shopping (my personal fave), watch a show inside an air-conditioned building, or take a ride on Splash Mountain! Of course, there’s always the option to take a dip in the hotel pool. And if that’s your favorite way to beat the heat, you’ll want to plan your 2024 Disney trip carefully, as 3 Disney World Resort hotels will be shutting down pools for several months.
The launch of MagicBand+ in Disney World has finally begun!
After accidentally releasing some MagicBand+ bands earlier this year, MagicBand+ officially launches in Disney World on July 27th. We’ve already shared details about how this new device will turn you into a Bounty Hunter, how it’ll feel DIFFERENT than the classic MagicBand, and more, but now we’ve got even more to share!
There are so many hotels to choose from when taking a trip to Disney World. But, if you stay on property, you may get exclusive perks like extra time in the parks, early access to Individual Attraction Selections, and more!
And surprisingly, you don’t actually have to stay at a Disney World Resort hotel to receive many of those perks. There are other on-property hotels that aren’t owned by Disney, like the Marriot’s Swan Reserve, that also offer some of these perks. The Swan Reserve, in particular, is classified as a Deluxe Resort hotel by Disney, meaning guests have access to all of the perks other Deluxe Resort guests receive. So, to see how the Swan Reserve matches up against other Deluxe Resort hotels, we toured a room!
We LOVE celebrating the holidays in the Disney Parks!
We already know about some festivities for Halloween, and we’re about to celebrate Halfway to the Holidays, too. But, while we are very excited about the holidays that come later this year, we can’t forget about one of the most essential summer holidays — 4th of July! Disney is celebrating (of course) and now, we have a FULL LOOK at ALL of the food coming to Disney World and Disneyland for the 4th of July!
Some Disney World guests actually choose to check out of their hotel well before their vacation is over!
A Disney World vacation can take a LOT of planning. From snagging Advance Dining Reservations to making Disney Park Pass reservations, there are tons of details to consider. So, with all those moving parts, why would some guests choose to check out of their hotel with days — or weeks — still left of their trip??
MagicBands may not be required to navigate around Disney World anymore, but we’ve noticed that a lot of people still choose to wear them! It can be convenient to have everything you need to get into the parks or your room right there on your wrist, instead of having to pull out your phone or physical ticket.
If you’re someone who still doesn’t want to let go of that MagicBand lifestyle, then you’ll want to see these new MagicBands available to resort guests and annual passholders!
After a several months-long closure, All-Star Sports Resort has finally reopened in Disney World!
All-Star Sports is one of three All-Star Resorts, along with All-Star Music and All-Star Movies. These resorts are Value hotels and are some of the cheapest Disney hotel rooms you can get. Of course, the price fluctuates throughout the year, but these rooms are often available for around $200 per night.
