Hola folks, my first full day at Disney World, and we tackled Magic Kingdom. Going into the vacation, I did not know what to expect; it is my first time EVER at Disney and I thought that the magic would be lost on a 24 year old kid. But little did I know that Disney is even more magical when you are older. I am still not over losing about half of my footage from Epcot, but live and learn. Here is the Magic of Magic Kingdom. Enjoy!
On this episode of HOW TO: Hilton we will learn how to plan the when, where, and how for the perfect Disney World vacation! In four easy steps we will cover anything you need to know to confidently book your WDW vacation. I will be sharing the itinerary to our latest 5 day vacation at Disney as a guide, and in the next two episodes, explaining how to master the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studio’s, and Animal Kingdom. I’ll go into detail about what attractions are must-see for each age range, how to best utilize Fastpasses, and the best places to eat, drink, and shop at each park.
Comment below to let me know how your Walt Disney World vacation planning is going and let me know if there are any questions I can help you with!
Disney World is making major changes to the way they price their theme park tickets. Beginning October 16, customers booking theme park tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will see prices based on the dates they’re looking to visit rather than prices that vary by park, as has been the case in the past, the company announced via an official blog post and video. Whether this practice makes tickets generally more or less expensive for buyers remains to be seen. For the first time ever, Disney is also offering seasonal pricing for multi-day tickets, and the tickets will be priced differently based on the exact date visitors want to use them. If they want to book with flexible dates, they’ll pay more.

Currently, customers who purchase multi-day tickets aren’t stuck with exact dates on which they need to be used, but customers must use them on consecutive days within an agreed upon 14-day period. Under the new system, visitors who purchase a three-day pass will have a five-day window within which to use it, for a four-day ticket, they have six days, and so on. If it all sounds a little confusing, the Disney Parks Mom’s Panel is there to help. Tips from the elite group of layperson Disney pros are sprinkled throughout the booking process. The blog post also announces that Disney will offer customers the use of an interactive online calendar that shows them which dates each month are priced the lowest, and tips will pop up at the bottom of the screen to show guests which months and dates have the cheapest pricing options.

Instead, it’s meant to be an extension of their current seasonal pricing strategy, as the ticket prices will be preset based on park demand and will not fluctuate based on how many people book tickets for a period of time. Exact ticket prices won’t be released until October 16, but the Disney rep tells PEOPLE that one-day park tickets will range from $109-$129 pre-tax. They are currently $102-$129 per day.
