Get ready for more exciting Star Wars releases on Disney Plus this month! From the new Mandalorian docuseries, to the Skywalker Saga, episodes of the final season of Clone Wars and already streaming favorites like the Original Trilogy, documentaries, behind the scenes with the Imagineering Story and so many Clone Wars and other great episodes, this May, you'll be able to get your total fix of everything Star Wars!
While it would appear that the closures throughout Disney properties don't have a firm reopening date, hopefully they reopen the fist part of April. Our hearts go out to those who have had their plans interrupted, and those whose families have been effected by the Cronovirus. Speedy wishes that everyone recovers, and it stops spreading. Even in our small town, there have been those who have tested positive.
There's a new Disney Dining Plan option, and it might be a good fit for some families.
This new plan is a happy medium between the Standard Disney Dining Plan and the Deluxe. If you'd like a little more flexibility in your dining options, and a little less food, this might be for you!
Whereas the Deluxe plan is three meals a day, and the Standard one table service and one quick service meal a day, the new Disney Dining Plan Plus, is two meals a day, your choice of quick service or table service.
Like the other plans, two snacks a day and your refillable resort mug are included. Priced in the middle, this new plan is $94.61 for ages 10 and up per night, and $35.01 for ages 3-9.
With several new quick services opening with an above average menu, like the Regal Eagle in Epcot, you might might this a good fit for your family. With two meals a day it's easier to space out so you don't feel so full and sluggish, but you can still enjoy two table service meals a day if you like, including the perks that some may have, like meeting characters or special show seating.
What do you think? Is this a plan you might try?
I went to buy a few Disney gift cards for our upcoming trip. We enjoy having a few different cards, the kids each have a different design, then we have a different design for food, then one for souvenirs, etc. Well, those days might be gone.
Disney no longer offers the huge collection of gift card designs. They have two to pick from now. Two. Standard Mickey, and Frozen 2.
Disappointed, I wrote, asking what happened and "To improve efficiency and an overall better experience, we recently updated our gift card vendor, which did result in the decline in available designs. "
I'm not sure how it improves anyone's experience to no longer have dozens of card designs to pick from, but I suppose it does improve the efficiency, on their end.
RIP Gift card designs! And if you are lucky enough to still have some of your old cards, might want to save them!
It was family movie/preview night in our house this last weekend, and we watched the best thing ever. A preview of ALL of the shows that are dropping on Disney+ in about 3 weeks. Want to see them? I promise, this won't be a quiet video. Everyone in the room is going to be full of "Wow!" or "I loved that one!" or "I remember that!". It's awesome. You won't regret a second of this.
