Greetings from the West Coast, DFBers!
We’ve been hanging around Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney, checking out all the new food, merchandise, and more. And we’re here with ALL the updates!
It’s no secret that the Disney parks are constantly changing.
From new lands like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland and Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure to new treats at your favorite snack spot, there’s a near-constant stream of new things happening! Today, we’ve got news of another change at Disneyland!
If you haven’t been to Disney World in a while or even if you’re a seasoned pro, there have been some big changes over the past year that you miiiight not have noticed!
There are five key mistakes you probably weren’t even worried about making last time you visited the parks, but you sure need to note them now!
Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another DFB Video, and today we’re talking about the mishaps you can encounter in Disney World!
While there are so many wonderful things to see, do, and eat in the parks, problems just tend to happen on vacations (we’ve all been there and done that). But, sometimes, there are a few difficulties that we don’t expect to happen while we’re staying at Disney World. Don’t worry — the DFB team has got you covered!
In late March, Disney announced several new policies for guests visiting parks in Walt Disney World and Disneyland. And most of those new policies go into effect today, May 1, 2019.
Included in the new policies is a ban on smoking inside the parks. Park maps have been updated designating the new outside-of-entrance smoking locations accordingly.
In Animal Kingdom, the only smoking location is outside the gates near the security stands.
Disney has announced several new policies that you will want to know for your next trip to a Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort park.
While we’ve already discussed the new Smoking Policy, we’ll take another quick look at it here. But we’ll begin by discussing new limitations on Strollers (including a new Policy banning Stroller Wagons). We’ll also look at new rules surrounding the bringing of loose and dry ice in the parks, as well as when each policy goes into effect. [Read more…]
If you’re planning a visit to Disney World with little kids, you might find yourself overwhelmed by all the choices when it comes to planning. And, you might be getting a lot of advice from well-intentioned friends and family — but you’re still confused.
Have no fear! Our good friends (and recommended travel agents!) at Small World Vacations have been planning Disney World trips for families for YEARS and they have the answers you’re looking for when it comes to Disney World planning with young kids!
Thankfully, Walt Disney World makes it pretty darn easy to dine with little kids. Meals for children under age three are free in many circumstances, high chairs are available everywhere, and healthier side dishes are now de rigueur in kids’ meals.
And of course you should know that with the one teeny exception of Victoria & Albert’s, even the smallest children are welcome at any Disney restaurant. Don’t even spend a moment worrying about whether it’s OK to bring your baby with you to dinner. It’s absolutely, 100%, fine. No kidding.
But while the restaurants are happy to have your baby on board, from a logistical standpoint, dining with a smaller baby can pose a bit of challenge at Walt Disney World, or anywhere else for that matter.
Restaurant meals can be particularly arduous if you have a new baby that’s too small to sit at a high chair. What do you do with the baby while you’re eating? How to do you balance feeding the infant and feeding yourself? [Read more…]
