Disney is testing out a new dining plan at the Magic Kingdom. Disney is testing out a deal, which may not really be a deal. They are offering a new quick-service type dining option at the Magic Kingdom from January 12th through February 22nd. Called “Disney Dine-On-The-Go”, guests can purchase a one-day certificate from the Magic Kingdom Vacation Planning booth that includes one quick-service lunch entrée and non-alcoholic drink and one quick-service dinner entrée and non-alcoholic drink. When you look at the menus for the locations being offered, the savings are really slim. Although it might be a nice way to let your teens roam the park alone and still make sure they eat. Lunch must be ordered before 4 p.m. and dinner must be ordered after 4 p.m. Dessert is not included in either meal. The price is $29 for adults and $12 for ages 3-9. You can use the certificate at Casey’s Corner, Columbia Harbour House, Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café, and Pinocchio Village Haus. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY


Did Disney unofficially announce the opening of Pandora: World of AVATAR?
Walt Disney World recently released their Florida Resident 3& 4- Day Discover Disney tickets. They are a great deal at $139, even though they have a limited amount of usage time. But this current offer might have a hidden message. There is a blackout date of May 27th to June 9th for these tickets. Yup, this is Memorial Day weekend. And the blackout is exclusive to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There is only one thing that this can indicate, and Dad is really hoping his pixie-sense is correct, this might just indicate the opening of AVATAR!CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY
