We visited Walt Disney World (4/2016) with our son & family.   Chloe is 2 1/2 yrs old and Addison is 4 months. One of our first character visits was with Tinkerbell at Magic Kingdom meet and greet.  As we walked thru, we told Chloe that we were all shrinking to the size of the fairies and she totally bought into it!  We could hardly keep her contained while waiting for the family in front of us to finish meeting with Tink!

When not using the Disney Dining Plan, eating can be expensive.  We always pack a small hard exterior carry on luggage with snacks and non-perishable breakfast items.  This way, you save money on food and have extra room to bring back special purchases!! (Submitted by Nathalie J.)

Last week, Ms. Lost was grabbing an ice cream at the Ananadpur Ice Cream Truck in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Congratulations to Adrian B.!

This week, Ms. Lost was found looking at the ceiling, but where?

If you think that you can help, please email your answer to:

Send in your guess by September 3. Please be as specific as possible, noting not only the park but the specific ride, attraction, or section where the picture was taken. For instance, instead of saying, “Magic Kingdom,” say, “At Magic Kingdom at Jungle Cruise” (which isn’t this week’s answer). One random entry from all correct entries will receive a Disney trading pin.

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!
