Some DVC discounts are well known, like the 10-20% off that members get on shopping and dining around Disney World, but did you know there are three lesser-known discounts that you could be really missing out on?
There’s a BIG event coming soon to Walt Disney World!
If you’re familiar with the runDisney races, then you probably know all about the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend coming up the first weekend of November. This event typically draws quite a few guests to the parks as they compete in a series of races early each morning. And if you’re heading to Disney World for Wine & Dine weekend, then we’ve got some fun news!
When you go to Disney World, do you JUST go to the theme parks, or do you check out other parts of the resort?
That’s right, there’s WAY more to do in Disney World than the parks. You can play miniature golf, go shopping and eating at Disney Springs, and visit Disney World’s water parks. Now, one of those water parks, Blizzard Beach, has been closed for refurbishment since earlier this year, but it’s reopening soon — with new food!
Summers in Florida can be hot and humid, which means if you’re visiting Disney World during that time, you may want to schedule a day to visit the resort’s water parks.
However, one of those water parks, Blizzard Beach, has been closed since March 2023 for refurbishment. This comes after a lengthy closure right before it reopened in 2022 with some new Frozen-inspired elements. However, Disney has finally told us when Blizzard Beach will reopen AGAIN and we’ve got all the deets!
Disney World is home to more than just its four prominent theme parks.
Sure, meeting Mickey in Magic Kingdom is an iconic part of a trip to Disney World, but did you know you could also meet Santa in a ski resort in the middle of Florida? Disney World has two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Currently, you can visit the latter — where you can lounge in a lazy river, Castaway Creek, or catch some serious waves in the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool. However, Blizzard Beach has been closed for a seasonal refurbishment since March 19th, 2023. Disney hasn’t shared an opening timeline for the park yet, but they may have just dropped a clue about when it might be returning.

We know that you have more questions than answers right now. You’re probably asking yourself all of these questions: Should I fly or drive to Orlando? Which Disney resort fits my touring plans? How does Disney transportation work? Where should we have a character meal? Which admission tickets do we need?
