Disney’s Night of Joy and More Fall Events

Disney’s Night of Joy concerts will be held on September 9 and 10 this year! This fantastic contemporary music festival features performances by Christian superstars in rock, pop, and gospel music.

In the years past it’s been held at the Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. For the second year in a row, it’s being held at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World® Resort. I attended this concert last year and loved it!!! With ample
seating at both indoor and outdoor venues,  you can sit back and enjoy the music or “get up and dance” to the artists.  This year’s line up includes:

  • Sept. 8 – MercyMe, TobyMac, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Matt Maher, Colton Dixon, Rend Collective, Zach Williams
  • Sept. 9 – Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Kirk Franklin, Jordan Feliz, Crowder, Jeremy Camp, Tye Tribbett

Disney Pin Code ~ Deleted by Mistake?

Disney Pin Code - GoofyIf 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 pin 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 Disney Pin Code ~ Deleted by Mistake?
