When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong
Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! – Jiminy Cricket

Q. My family and I are headed to WDW this October. We are arriving on Saturday Oct. 29th and staying for 8 nights with a split stay at the Beach Club and the Boardwalk. Our group includes me, my husband, my mom, and our two year old daughter.

We’ve decided not to do Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year because of the extra cost, my daughter’s age, and the crowd levels on Halloween weekend.

Since we will be there on Halloween night itself, do you have any suggestions other than the party? Are there any other parks. attractions, or hotels that might fit the Halloween theme? I know nothing will compare to the party at MK, but any ideas would help! (Submitted by Alyssa G.)

Our family loves Christmas ornaments which can be expensive. We have found that key chains and bookmarks can be a less costly alternative. If you don’t want to hang them on the tree with the key ring you can always remove it with needle nose wire pliers and hang with ribbon. (Submitted by Rhonda)

Q. I have a trip planned for the week after Thanksgiving this year.  I’ve noticed that Hollywood Studios is listed to close at 7pm most nights and doesn’t have any Star Wars fireworks scheduled.  This is high on our priority list for my 7 year old son.  Will they be showing them and will they be at 7pm (park closing)?

To help catch drips from popsicles, Mickey Bars, etc… use a drink lid (like you would get at the soda fountain or quick service location)… simply invert and put the stick through the “X” and voila… drip catcher! (Submitted by Laura C.)

Episode 1059 – WDW Nostalgia Vs. Universal Hipness

We are very excited to have Listener John from Wisconsin joining us today to lead a fun discussion about the nostalgia of Walt Disney World Vs. the cutting-edge experiences at Universal parks.  Is one better than the other?  Does one experience preclude the enjoyment of the other?

Q. My granddaughters are coming to Walt Disney World for their first time in January.  Does Disney do anything to celebrate first time visitors?  They are 11 and 9. (Submitted by lwalker)

 

A. Hello!

How much fun that your granddaughters are about to experience their first trip to Walt Disney World! What a magical time that will be!

While the resort doesn’t specifically have things that it will for sure do for first time guests, my big suggestion is to make sure to stop at Guest Relations at either the theme park or at your Walt Disney World Resort and ask for a First Visit button! These great buttons signify to Cast Members and Guests that this is their first time visiting the parks. Again, while Disney doesn’t guarantee that they will do anything special for first timers, often Cast Members will dote on those Guests, giving them a bit more attention, for example talking to them and asking them, giving them trinkets like stickers, and more.

There really is something special about wearing a first time button.

I hope you have a magical vacation!
