If you wind up going to Walt Disney World and you are on the Disney Dining Plan, try using your snack credits for breakfast.  We used ours for fruit and yogurt parfaits, danishes, and fruit.  It’s a great way to get the most bang for your buck! (Submitted by Kristina V.)

Q. Staying at BoardWalk this weekend. Are there fun things to do at BoardWalk? (Submitted by Jolyn L.)

A. Hi Jolyn!

Yay for having a great trip scheduled at the BoardWalk! There’s a lot of great things for you to do at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn!

One of my suggestions is to enjoy the Community Hall area over by the quiet pool. They often have movies playing in there and there is often a great crafting project. You can also play cornhole and compete against each other.

There’s also a lot of great restaurants along the BoardWalk, including Tratoria al Forno, Big River Grille, and ESPN Club. You’ll also want to catch some of the acts that take place along the BoardWalk, including the illusionists.

There’s really a ton to do on the BoardWalk that you won’t be bored!

Q. I recently returned from an awesome trip to Walt Disney World. While there, I tried out Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, but didn’t have time to complete it while I was there. I won’t be going back until 2017. Will my progress be saved by then? I love your show and hope to hear from you soon. (Submitted by Theo H.)

A. Hi Theo!

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a lot of fun and I’m so glad to hear that you enjoy the interactive game that takes place in the different lands of the Magic Kingdom.

So, theoretically, your progress should be rolled over, which is great news for you! However, I have heard that about a year or so ago, there was a glitch that occurred that set people back to the beginning. Of course that’s rare and has only happened the one time, but it is something that could potentially happen.

I hope you have fun on your next trip playing Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom!

Q.  Do you know if I am going out to dinner with friends and one wants to pay the bill with her credit card, would we be able to have the benefit of my tables in Wonderland Card, even if I’m not paying? (Submitted by Kathleen P.)

A. Hi Kathleen!

How nice that your friend wants to pay for dinner! I need friends like that!

Tables in Wonderland is a wonderful discount card that guests who are Florida Residents, Annual Passholders, or Disney Vacation Club Members can purchase to help save on dining!

Unfortunately though, the person who’s name is on the Tables in Wonderland card is the one who has to pay for the meal because the name on the credit card must match the name on the Tables in Wonderland card.

As much of a pain as it may be, you could always put the meal on your credit card and have her pay you back, or paying with cash is always an option, since there’s no way to know who that money came from.

I hope you have a magical vacation!

Q. I’d like to think we’re Disney nuts from the UK but we’ve only had the good fortune to visit the World four times to date! We’ve always visited in September / October. In 2016 we land on US soil on 1st October. During our stay we will be on property during Columbus weekend. I can’t recall it ever been an issue on past visits but various planning sites suggest its going to be busy – Whats your take on this guys – how busy is busy and how are the parks effected?

Q. Hello. We are hoping to book a Keys to the Kingdom tour this week (we hit our 180 day mark on Thursday) and are wondering what you would recommend as the best way to get to the Magic Kingdom with plenty of time for the tour. We will be staying at Caribbean Beach and anticipate booking the 9 am tour on a normal morning opening at the Magic Kingdom. We have been told the buses start running an hour before park opening but we want plenty of time for getting there and through security to the special tour entrance. Any information/advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help. (Submitted by Kelli R.)
