    Hi Andree!

    I'm so excited to help you get ready for your vacation where you will enjoy the holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort! The theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs are always magical, but they get a little bit of extra magic every year when they are so beautifully decorated for the holidays. Be sure to consider purchasing Memory Maker so you can capture all of the amazing memories you make together as a family during your trip!

    One of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the incredible food, snacks and treats that we will enjoy during our trip. Whether you are interested in visiting some of the amazing table service restaurants throughout the resort, selecting some more casual options at quick service restaurants or enjoying a mix of both, you will have some tasty culinary adventures during your vacation. Plus, who can resist Dole Whips, popcorn and Mickey pretzels?

    The Disney dining plans are a great way to pay for the majority of your dining expenses in advance. Unfortunately, only Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel are able to purchase a dining plan as part of a vacation package. However, if you would like to minimize the amount of cash you bring with you, you can always use Disney Gift Cards for your vacation purchases, including dining. You can purchase Disney Gift Cards online, at your local Disney Store or even at your local grocery store. Be sure to register your gift cards before your vacation so you can manage your balance and even reload your gift cards during your trip!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
