Yesterday we got a *TON* of amazing announcements during the Parks & Resort Session at D23. What I want to talk about in this blog, though, are the things they didn’t announce! Some of these things are rumors we’ve heard elsewhere, and other things are just general things that I think is in need of some attention. I’ll use the same list-like format I did yesterday.
Today from 3-4.30 PM PDT was the Disney Parks and Resorts session at D23. Needless to say, they announced A LOT of amazing things. Here is a list of everything that got announced (and perhaps with some minor commentary in parenthesis, too).
As many are speculating based on permits just filed by Disney, the France pavilion in EPCOT could be getting a big new (well, clone-new) addition soon! The talk in the town is that we might see a trackless Ratatouille ride – just like what they have in Disneyland Paris – making its way in Orlando.
You’re all ready to book your trip, but wait- what about discounts? It’s a question I get all the time, and there are some ways to get discounts on Walt Disney World trips. Most of them are directly through Disney, but there are some other ways, too.
I know, I know: total blasphemy for a Disney blogger, right? I don’t know, maybe. But, I found myself down near Universal Studios Hollywood for Thanksgiving this year– too far to easily sneak in a trip to Disneyland (which, of course, would have been my first choice) and to be honest I’ve been curious for a while to check out Universal down there. So, my wife and I seized the day and decided to check it out. Now it’s time for me to tell you all about it (or, skip to the end for the TL;DR summary).
I recently had the pleasure of crossing something exciting off my bucket list: a visit to my first overseas Disney park, Tokyo Disneyland! Needless to say, I had an absolute blast and enjoyed every minute of it, and there are some clear similarities and differences to the parks here in the United States. I’ve written up this blog to be part recap, part review, part tips & tricks (as best I can figure, given my one visit).
This is a long, detailed post, but this is because before my trip I struggled to find blogs and articles with those kinds of insight into Tokyo Disney. I hope this blog will be helpful for future US travelers to Tokyo Disney. For anyone who doesn’t want to read the entire thing, skip to the end for a quick recap. Without further ado, let’s take a trip down memory lane to Tokyo Disney!
You’ve figured out what you want to do and You may be thinking this is an obvious question, but there are a few nuances that first-timers may not know about that I want to shed some light on.
One of the biggest dilemmas of any Walt Disney World trip is figuring out what you want to do. There are so many options to consider for your trip, including 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, Disney Springs, hundreds of restaurants and attractions, shows, tours, and more. With all of these options, and the understanding that you can’t possibly see and do everything in one trip (even a 7-day trip) here are some tips to figure out what to include in your itinerary.
