Disney Discounts ~ Current Pin Offers

Disney Discounts MailboxThere are good Walt Disney World discounts available right now for general public use.  They go right into June 2014.  The Disney discounts for pinned offers go all the way into early Fall 2014.  What is a pinned Disney discount?  The pinned offers are sent directly to targeted guests. They are not transferable.  Disney sends them to email addresses. These valuable Disney discounts can also be sent through the US Post Office.  The offer I got is pictured here.  Do you think you got an offer and can’t find the email or postcard?  You can call Disney at (407) 939-5277 and ask them about it. They can retrieve the pin number in their system for you if one is available.  The pin code offers for Walt Disney World travel are usually the best discounts available.  In fact, there is a free dining offer that is available for travel in January and February 2014.  These are dates that no longer have offers available for general public use.  It may be worth making that phone call if you are traveling soon.

Disney Vacation Early Booking Savings?

Disney Vacation Disney Family Bonding OLP TravelAre you planning a Disney vacation in 2014?  I know I am.  If you are planning to travel to Walt Disney World after May of 2014 booking early could get you your best deal.  Disney has been smoothing out the system in place for introducing new rates. Every year the cost of tickets goes up. Every year the cost of dining goes up.  We also expect an increase in the resort room cost for our Disney vacation.  Disney found a way to introduce all annual increases and only have to change the package rates in the system once.  They release the increases one at a time. Once all the increases  are released the packages for the following year will come out.  Those packages will have the next year’s new resort, ticket and dining rates.  Once the packages for the next year come out the packages for the current year will show the increased ticket and dining costs.

Disney Souvenirs ~ Disney World Favs!

Disney Souvenirs - Travel MugI just returned from a Disney vacation.  My husband and I traveled in September 2013.  As with every other Disney vacation we made sure to save room in our suitcases for the Disney souvenirs we would be getting.  I did not have any particular Disney souvneirs in mind.  Tim knew he wanted a travel mug.  He was on a mission from the moment we knew we were heading to Walt Disney World.  He was looking for a travel mug that had a lid that would not catch his mustache hairs in it.  This is apparently a problem with some travel mugs.  He was successful with the mug pictured here.  The lid screws on and is very secure.  For those of you with mustaches, it is the perfect travel mug.  Your mustache will not get caught in the lid.  It is not too big around.  This means it will fit nicely in most any spot in your car that is made to hold a cup.  He found it at the store at the Polynesian.  They are available at World of Disney in Downtown Disney, too.  I liked it so much that I bought a similar one with a different design.  It keeps my coffee nice and hot and I use it every day.  I also really like the feel of the handle.  It is sturdy and offers a nice grip.
