Walt Disney World Fun New Things
There are several new experiences at Walt Disney World
Rent a cabana for $700 at the Magic Kingdom. These are in Tomorrow land and look like small catering tents. The insides look nice and modern. For $700 you can relax, charge your cellphone, and have a Mickey bar. But for less than $700 you could book a room at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The Contemporary is just minutes away by the monorail or walking. I can see how these spaces work well at water parks, but we will have to wait and see if they work in the Disney Parks.
Disney World Express Bus Service
There is a new bus service (express) for $15 per person. You get picked up behind the park, and the buses run every 30 minutes. Multi-day service is also available for less money ($24 for a 7 day pass). These buses run park to park, so this could be good for park hopping guests.
Monorail Highway in the sky dine around
You can do a progressive dinner on the monorail at Walt Disney World. This experience starts at The Wave at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and ends at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. You also stop at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for drinks before your dinner at the Grand Floridian. $150 per person. Booking now – March 2017. Most dates are already sold out, but keep trying or as a Mouse Chatter / Pixie at Pixie Vacations to look into booking this for you as part of your Disney vacation package.

Hi to the good folks at Mouse Chat. My wife and I participated in the highway in the sky dine around at about the time this podcast came out (yes I finally getting caught up with all the podcasts). I reserved/purchased this when this first became available in November (?). You start at the Wave and have a Baylake Sunset drink with a small cup of butternut squash bisque…the chef came out to describe what was being served. This was followed by a monorail (two cars reserved) to the Poly. We made our way to Trader Sam’s (outside) where a manager and a chef described what was to come. The drink was the HippopotoMai-Tai with three apps: ahi tuna, radish salad, and pork belly. The portions were bite size (and I mean one bite), but they were flavorful. Next, we went off to the Grand Flo for the main entree at Citricos. You have a choice of red or white wine with the meal which was scallops and short rib. Upon leaving Citricos you are handed a flute of sparkling wine (no refills that I know of – I mention that because another reviewer indicated there were refills). We were allowed about 20 min to sit or walk around the area opposite of Citricos (next to Mizner’s Lounge) where there are tables or you could go outside. Our final stop was back at the Contemporary on the 4th-floor patio. Desserts and cordials were available along with coffee (and Baileys & Kahlua!). We had about 20 people in the group, but there was no lack of space. Also, you spend about 20-30 min at each venue. This is about the experience and not so much about the meal although it was very good the portions were small. If you like to socialize I would highly recommend this add-on. We had a blast meeting people from around the country…united by the common thread for a love of Disney. If you tend to keep to yourself, then you are better off going to V&A’s as stated on the podcast. Given the expense, it’s not something I would do on a regular basis, but for a special occasion I would do this again in a heartbeat. The CMs will take pictures with your camera or phone which was wonderful. If you prefer just a wine tasting I suggest Jiko’s wine tasting. You get three glasses of wine and a narrative of each wine. There was around eight people in our group. Again, it helps to be social, but unlike highway in the sky if you are introvert you would be okay in this setting. This wine tasting is something we will do again – great wine and it was fun.
