WHY pay full price?

So many who make the trek to Walt Disney World in Florida get caught up in package deals. The Disney Company makes it very easy to book your vacation on their site and the My Disney Experience can be magical. Yet many do not realize that they are spending too much for things they may not need in order for the convenience, when there are ways to save on room and tickets and not over pay. Let’s face it, a Disney Vacation is going to be expensive because of all the Disney Magic and where else are you going to go to receive such an experience. No where else in the World (not even Disneyland).

There is a place you can go to save and then use that money for other things. It is an often overlooked or discredited because it is unknown but it is one of the main sites recommended by our friends at touringplans.com and by the unofficial guide. You need to check out this link to Undercover Tourist http://buildyoursuccesswithdoug.com/undercoversavings

Explore the site and see the savings that can be had. Especially right now during their special “Back to Savings” event which ends August 27th. The next two days is the time to check out Undercover Tourist.

How to actual save on Disney World Tickets?

There are ways to save but it is not always easy unless you know the right source. Travel Agents can save you a little on tickets but Disney company has limited most travel agents except the few. Below is a link to one of the best discounters that is an actual authorized ticket seller. You can save big especially if you are staying off property and need ticket discounts. You can save that money for other souvenirs, food, special tours, etc. They come highly recommended by Touring Plans, Unofficial Guide and myself.

Special “Not always Seen” Character Meet and Greets

I borrowed this from my friends at Chip & Co. I believe this starting this week. Even if the schedule below changes on a particular day, note that there will be characters that are not always seen out in town square, so be watching for this during your visits to Most Magical place on Earth.

Doctor Disney is reporting a character meet and greet schedule for the duos to meet with guests: “The duos will be out daily from 11:30 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. in Town Square during Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration. It is set to run through September 30, 2019, which gives you plenty of time to visit these surprise guests.”

Take a look at the schedule for these surprise friends!
Sunday – Chicken Little & Abby Mallard
Monday – Robin Hood & Little John
Tuesday – Gideon & Honest John (Pinocchio)
Wednesday – Remy & Emile (Ratatouille)
Thursday – Prince John & Friar Tuck
Friday – Judy Hopps & Nick Wilde
Saturday – Phineas & Ferb
*Characters are subject to change. At this time, this will be the weekly schedule and it isn’t known if different characters will change out at any point this year.
