In recognition of Halloween, we thought you might like to know that the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom of Disney World started 14 years ago today on October 31, 1995.
While the party of that year we are sure was special, Disney has since taken it to a whole new level. The special event now requires a separate ticket purchase of $64 for adults. This ticket entitles entrance to the Magic Kingdom during party hours. The park is closed to anyone not having a Not So Scary ticket.

The Disney Cruise Line has released some details for its new cruise ship called the Disney Dream due to set sail in January of 2011. Many features are slated to be integrated into this new ship, with several of them new to the industry in general.

One of the great things about a Disney vacation are some of the special activities you can do while you are there. A favorite with little girls (but also enjoyed by “princesses” of all ages) is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. In Disney World, there are two locations of this special beauty salon, one in the World of Disney at Downtown Disney and one right inside Cinderella Castle. Disneyland’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is found in Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Aspiring princesses who are three years old or older may choose from a variety of packages offered, ranging from the Coach Package to the Castle Package. The Coach package runs $45 (Disneyland) to $50 (Disney World) and is basically a special hair and makeup package. This is a great way to have the experience without spending a great deal of money and also works out great if you have a princess style dress your little one can wear already. (It’s no problem to bring your own from home!) Add another $5 to upgrade to the Crown Package if you want to include having their nails done.

Great news for Walt Disney World Annual Pass holders. Disney has officially extended its annual pass promotion which allows pass holders to renew for 15 months for the price of 12.
The special originally was offered in early August and was supposed to run through December 31, 2009. This was a great deal for individuals whose passes were going to expire in those five months, but seemed a bit unfair to those who had a pass expiring in the other seven.

While not officially available yet, Disney has announced that a new application from Verizon will allow park guests at Disney World and Disneyland to find out some very timely information.

Once launched, the service will be available for download on select Verizon phones, with a cost yet to be determined. Subscribers will then have access to specific features available only to them. Continue reading “Mobile Magic Coming Soon To A Verizon Phone Near You” »

In a unique entrance, Tiana and her party appear from beside the Diamond Horseshoe and dance and sing their way to the Liberty Belle.
