Mouse Chat Disney Radio – Polynesian DVC, FastPass+ for offsite Guests and other Disney News
Disney World News and Reviews
Disney’s Polynesian Resort is being updated with a exciting make over. The rooms are done and now the pool area is under rehab. The main lobby is on it’s way and the beach now has Bungalows under construction. You can see two bedroom units being built over the water. How cool would it be to stay in a bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Resort? Way cool! We have the details about the Polnesian DVC on this weeks show.
Ok Disney’s Boardwalk restaurant – Kouzzina by Cat Cora will be closing. So get over to the Disney Boardwalk if you want to eat hear one last time. Most of us have never eaten there due to the poor reviews. Chris did eat breakfast there before and gave it a very poor review. So this could be a nice opportunity for something new. Closes September 30, 2015
Disney Cruise Line 2015 Itineraries have been released – You can book Norway on Disney Cruise Line and many other European destinations now. The prices for these Disney Cruises are actually very reasonable at these early booking prices. About $1500 per person for Norway on a 7 night cruise on the Disney Magic. That’s amazing for a Disney Cruise Line inside stateroom traveling to Norway.
Off property guests Can not book FastPass+ – FastPass+ My Magic Plus and MagicBands will be available to off site guest starting March 31, 2014. Off property guests can book their rides and attractions online at 30 days before they travel. We can see a good and bad side to this. If you are staying on Disney World Property at a deluxe or other resort you can book your rides and attractions 60 days out. But if you want to change something it will be very difficult with everyone in the world now booking their rides before they arrive at Walt Disney World. If you don’t book your rides in advance you can still get on rides BUT the lines, which are now called “Standby lines” have reported wait times of several hours for popular rides. Also Annual Pass Holder can now book their rides and attractions (FastPass+) at 30 days out. That does not seem like a real perk for someone paying $700 a year for a ticket. AP holders get the same booking window as someone showing up as a day guest for one day at the park. For more information on FastPass+ please listen to this weeks Mouse Chat.
Walt Disney World Summer Discounts – Walt Disney World has released discounts for stays this summer. Save up to 35% on your Walt Disney World Resort with these new offers.
May 1st The Magic Kingdom officially dedicates the New Fantasyland Mine Train Coaster. Seeing that the dedication for the press event is May 1, 2014 we would think it would soft open to the public sometime in April.
