Even though Disney upped the price to park at their parks back in February, they did it again in October, along with a slew of other increases. If you didn't know already, it's going to cost a little more to park on your next visit to Magic Kingdom, or any of the other House of Mouse residences.
While the nightly parking fee if you stay on property still covers the parking fee if you visit a theme park, anyone staying off property, will pay a little more.
Standard automobile $25 (Up from $22)
Oversized parking $30 (Up from $27)
Preferred parking $50 (Up from $45)
Keep in mind, that you only have to pay once per DAY to park. If you leave and come back, as long as you have your receipt from earlier, you won't have to pay again.
Does the increase in parking mean that there's going to be a higher resort parking fee? Will this make you more likely to stay on property? Or off?
I'm sure you know that Walt had many other creations, before Mickey Mouse but without a doubt, his short film series the Alice Comedies were groundbreaking in the 1920s, and were able to help him build up his studio after a previous bankruptcy. Using a live girl, and animation, Walt made 56 of these short films. Over the course of the series, Alice was played by four different little girls.
If you look hard enough, you'll find them on VHS, and DVD, but also, since the videos are now public domain, you will run across them on Youtube! I've included one below from Youtube for you to get a taste of.
Remember... these older cartoons sometimes portrayed things that today's cartoons might not, and could be considered not politically correct, or even violent. Please use your best judgment before watching, or allowing your children to watch.

Disney has always made sure that ALL of their guests, no matter what challange faces them, can still have a mgaical experience. A holiday at a Disney Park is no different. Once again, Disney is offering guests with food allergies a chance to enjoy trick or treating at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, a chance to enjoy treats, with no tricks.
If you are attending this event, you can ask for a treat bag that's for allergy treats. You'll get a special bag, with a teal pumpkin, and as you go from stop to stop, you'll be able to collect a token to be redeemed for different allergy free treats! There's all kinds of great stuff to pick from, AND you can read the label information on the food products to make sure that the treat is safe for you, or your child.

Our house has always had treats and trinkets that any child of any age or any allergy can enjoy, but this year, the Teal Pumpkin Project has taken on new meaning for us, since our youngest now has a severe nut allergy. It makes me so happy that Disney is so inclusive of all guests, and we are proud to be connected even in a small way, by proudly displaying our own teal pumpkins this year!
Even without a teal pumpkin, it's easy to be part of this. Just have some treats that are safe for anyone, in addition to your usual treats you love to pass out. Dum dums, Smarties, and Tootsie Rolls are just a few that don't contain any of the top 8 allergens. You can also hit the dollar store for stickers, slinkies, mini notepads and other fun things! You might be the reason that a child who has had to say "No, thank you, I can't" all night long, or collected candy, knowing it will be given to a sibling because it's not safe for them, will get to have a few treats for themselves that are safe, and they can enjoy!
