If you are a seasoned Walt Disney World traveler, you know how great it is to get an email with a Disney pin code attached to it. Disney pin code offers are known to be the deepest discounts most of the time. I have gotten my fair share. My daughter gets them all the time. This type of discount is not for public use. A Disney pin code is a discount sent to specific people. You can’t transfer the discount to anyone. Disney verifies specific information to make sure the discount is in your name. Your Disney specialized travel agent can use your pin code to find you the deal. So, you get a great discount and can still use the services of a Disney experienced travel agent. It is a win/win deal, right?
The picture on the left was featured in the recent round of emails that went out. That in code offer is for free Disney dining into December 2013. Do you remember seeing that in an email you got? I wonder how many people are looking at this picture and realizing they got that email and deleted it by mistake. Is your heart sinking because you know the email is long gone? You might be able to find that pin code. Continue reading

Everyone wants the best deal when they travel to Walt Disney World. An experienced Disney travel professional is accustomed to chasing discounts. We try to keep up with the psychology of Disney deals. It is always a good idea to book outside of 180 days of your travel dates. This allows you to arrange the dining you want at 180 days out. Disney very rarely releases discounts for dates before it is time to book dining. This can be a problem if you really want to dine at popular dining locations. Most Disney travel agents will actively search for discounts for already booked reservations. Take advantage of that awesome perk, save money in the long run, and dine at the more popular restaurants. Your best planning psychology is to let the Disney professional do their job.

I bet this question has been asked a lot over the years and the answer is: It depends…
If you are staying at one of the Walt Disney Resorts then Disney has transportation pretty much covered from the time you arrive at the Orlando International Airport until you return back to the airport, and guess what? It’s all FREE of charge! So, if you are planning on staying on Disney property using their transportation system, then the answer is no, you do not need a car.
If you are staying at a hotel off Disney property you still may not need a car if you arrange for transportation such as a private car service or a shuttle to pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel for a fee. Most hotels offer free transportation to/from the parks, but check first with the hotel to make sure their bus schedules fit your needs. Continue reading

Like most over the top Disney fans, one of my goals is to stay at as many Disney resorts as possible. This past week I was able to enjoy Disney’s Beach Club Resort. And I’m excited to share my experiences with you! So let’s get started.
Upon arrival, we were charmed by the lovely exterior of the resort as well as all the surrounding foliage. We were met by a friendly cast member who gave us a warm welcome and walked with us to the check in counter. After receiving our keys to the world, we immediately went to check out our rooms which were ready and waiting for us. Continue reading

Don’t you love to ride the Disney monorails when you are on vacation? It is one of the first things I like to do in Walt Disney World. I love photographing the Disney monorails. There are several spots that you can take some great Disney monorail pictures. You might even find a themed monorail. The current monorail wrap is Monsters University. Disney loves to be creative with the monorail cars they wrap. The Avengers theme was in Walt Disney World last December when I visited. I walked up as it was pulling out at Epcot and caught this picture. I didn’t think it came out great until I pulled it up on my computer. Sometimes the shots you grab really quick are the truest.
