Disney sure hit everyone with a LOT of new, immediate fees, and increases on things like the annual pass, the reusable shopping bags (just about doubled!) parking and more.
The new parking fees are as follows:
Value Resorts are now $15 a night to park
Moderate Resorts $20 a night to park
Deluxe Resorts $25 a night to park
At this time, you will still get complimentary parking at theme parks, if you choose to take your own vehicle.
We like to tip on vacation to Mousekeeping, and this is the fun way that we do it! That way there is no mistaking "our" money for "Mousekeeping" money.
I've got a FREE printable for you, so you can print these off too (I like to use colored cardstock but any paper works!)
Print, cut and wrap around your tipping money, close with a smidge of tape, and you'll be spreading the magic too!
Just click below on the picture to go that printable, and our others, or the file name to print!
Without a doubt, Hollywood Studios has changed the most park wise over the last few years. From the Sorcerer's Hat being removed, and the loss of some beloved attractions like One Man's Dream, and the Animation Courtyard changes, the Streets of America farewell, no section has been able to avoid the changes, for better or worse.
One thing was definitely improved though, back in 2016, when Toy Story Mania opened a new third track! It improved the lines, increasing ride capacity by 50%.
In 2018, Toy Story Mania added a new facade. Which do you like better? The original, or the new? Whether you want to relive this ride, or explore it for the first time, you can with this great video from Undercover Tourist!
If you liked the original Rivers of Light show, you might enjoy the new one even more! If you didn't care for the original, give the new one a chance, it sounds much better! After 2 years, Disney has updated it (much needed, many think) and classic Disney songs and moments will be blended with Disney Nature scenes to remind us how similar we are, and to help us experience the Circle of Life. I am hoping for a live stream, often they will do that on a new show, a sort try, before you buy!
It's no secret that Disney's stopping the plastic straws is a trending conversation, one that leads to some heated points of view, but no matter which way you are thinking, there is somthing to be aware of in the new paper straws department.
Several Disney allergy groups, have comments saying in Disney LAND their servers told them the paper straws are corn based. In Walt Disney WORLD there are reports of soy being used in the ink, one person even saying that some of the straws had gluten.
If you, or someone you know has any of these allergies, stop and check on the straws, before you use them. Disney changes suppliers often, so what they have today, might be totally different next week. I can't confirm this myself just yet, but on our upcoming trip I plan to see for myself. (With yes, my plastic straws in my backpack.) I don't feel confident in vacation sterilizing my allergy kiddo's straws, so we are planning to bring a few plastic, until we can confirm that the paper are safe, for our allergies.
