Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Friday, August 28th, 2009

With Universal Studios and Busch Gardens capturing the teen market for Halloween, Disney has opted for a far less frightening experience geared towards much younger park attendees. The event is called Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and is sure to scare no one. But then again, that’s the point. This year the event lasts 24 days and as always it is filled with lots of not so scary fun.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party allows children to dress up in costumes, collect candy, ride all the Disney rides and even meet Disney characters who are dressed for the occasion throughout the park. Fireworks occur at the end of every evening of the event and there is a specially themed parade called the Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade.

If children are planning to wear a costume, Disney requests that the costume not impair the child’s visibility or movement to help prevent any accidents and so the child can better take in the event. You must admit that it would not be fun for anyone if a costume prohibited the child from riding their favorite ride because the safety harness would not fit around your little Sponge Bob or perhaps they missed the whole parade because they were dressed as a venus fly trap. Because this event is catered to younger children, costumes should not scary.

This year’s Halloween Party occurs on the following dates:

• September 4, 11, 15, 18, 22, 25, 29
• October 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31
• November 1

Cheap Tickets to the Disney World Theme Parks

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Cheap Tickets to the Disney World Theme Parks are not easy to find. Why? Because Disney wants you to buy your theme park tickets from them and not other ticket vendors. Disney simply refuses to be undersold for their own product. Think about it. Disney would be foolish for trying to sell their tickets for $80 while the local competition only charges $60. If that were the case, then Disney would not sell any tickets at their parks. With theme parks attendance on the decline due to the economy, you can bet that Disney wants every dollar that they can get without losing it to local competition. Having said all of that, you can still save money on your Disney Tickets and get them on the cheap. Here’s how.

At DW VACATION HOMES, we sell our Disney Tickets cheap by including them in a vacation package. In our Disney vacation packages, you get your tickets and lodging together. Our lodging options include condos, villas, town homes and single family homes. We can accommodate families and groups of all sizes. By selling you a vacation package, we are able to mark down our ticket prices and pass the savings on to you. Most companies either sell tickets or lodging, and that is why they are limited in the money that they can save your family.

We are confident that you will not be able to save any more money on your Disney Vacation from another company on any property that we represent. Take a look at our current pricing and compare shop. You can book your package online or you can give us a call at 1-888-269-0276 to talk to one of our reservation specialists who can answer any questions that you may have.


Purchase Cheap Disney Vacations with Your Own Disney Vacation Home

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Cheap Disney Vacations are still available even though Disney just increased their ticket prices across the board. For the forth straight year, Disney has increased their theme park ticket prices on the first Sunday in August. Many wondered if Disney would increase their prices this year because of an economic recession. Disney ticket prices are now higher than ever. Adult one day tickets went up four dollars and children tickets increased by five dollars per ticket. Ticket prices also went up two dollars on the Park Hopper Option.

An announcement that has flown under the radar is that Disney has extended their annual pass from 12 months to 15 months. Now, you can get 3 more months of Disney Them Park Magic for the price of just 12. No one is certain as to why Disney is not marketing this ticket option more. It is all very interesting because Disney wants you to stay longer at their theme parks and that’s why they push the multiday passes so much. They don’t want you spending on of your vacation money at Universal Studios or Seaworld nor at the other 50 attractions in the Orlando area. The multiday passes are specifically set up so that you visit Disney more on your vacation. That is why single day ticket prices are so high. They want you to visit their parks multiple days. That is why I would recommend the annual pass. You get to go to all the Major Disney Parks for the cheapest price and now that you get 3 more months, the deal just got better.

Another great way to get cheap Disney Vacations and have a whole lot more fun is to book a Disney Vacation Home close to the Disney Parks. You can book a beautiful vacation home at the Emerald Island Resort for just $83 per night. That’s cheaper than many hotels. The Emerald Island Resort is located just 2 miles away from Disney and is available as a 3 bedroom unit all the way up to 7 bedroom units. They also offer shuttle services to the Disney Resort so you don’t have to drive to Disney, so, you can avoid paying for parking at Disney. The vacation homes come with a fully equipped kitchen. If you make just a few small meals in the kitchen, while on vacation, you will save yourself a good bit of money.

As you can see, if you want a cheap Disney vacation, all it takes is a little planning and research and you can save your family a lot of money. If you like the best deal on a Disney Vacation, call one of our Disney Reservationists at 1-888-269-0276.
