    My husbands company is having their banquet at the Grand Floridian this Thur-Sun (3/18-3/21). It’s just us 2 and we have $1250 in gift cards but I can’t seem to get us into any parks. Are there any options or help to get us in for 1 day?

    You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney, Dottie!

    I’m delighted you stopped by with your question for us today. 

    Dottie, I love that you and your prince are enjoying an enchanting banquet at Walt Disney World Resort. There’s no mistaking the white Victorian building with its red spires piercing the Florida sky. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa provides luxurious accommodations while evoking a sense of genuine cheer and playfulness; after all, it is a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! You will find pure joy in every single detail from the heavenly scent of the lobby to the hidden Disney characters in its stunning decor; it’s no wonder Walt Disney World’s flagship resort is as magical as can be. 

    Although normally you can purchase Theme Park tickets using a Disney Gift Card, your particular days show there is no Theme Park availability in the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. You can always ask a Cast Member at the front desk if there are any last-minute cancellations; however, I don’t want you to worry as there is still plenty to do around Walt Disney World Resort without stepping foot inside the Theme Parks.

    If you’re not already staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I encourage you to do so. Your banquet is at my very favorite place in the world and a Disney Resort hotel’s amenities are some of the best! For instance, you can enjoy the themed pools, Movies Under the Stars, and all the dining options. You can also visit Disney Springs. It has live entertainment, unique shops, and delectable dining options. A really great experience is taking a cruise on a Vintage Amphicar

    Dining at Walt Disney World Resort is out of this world! If you’d like to take some socially distanced selfies with Mickey and his pals, breakfast at Toppling’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney’s Riviera Resort is magical! I would encourage making Advanced Dining Reservations to this one as it’s popular! Afterward, hop on the Disney Skyliner for a fun ride and breathtaking views.

    A spot that I adore especially during the evenings is Disney’s Boardwalk. As you’re taking a stroll, stop in for some conjuring cocktails at AbracadaBar

    Dottie, although you might not visit a Theme Park this time around, I want you to know it’s never a goodbye when leaving Walt Disney World Resort; but rather, it’s a “See ya real soon, pal.” Have an enchanting time!
