  • Aug 15-Oct 2
  • Oct 25-31

8 reasons why your first Disney Vacation won’t be your last

CinderellasCastle

Once you’ve been bitten by the Disney bug, there’s no going back.  I am here to tell you – I would spend every one of my spare weekends at Disney World, on a Disney cruise, or trekking to Disneyland.

Why?  Let me tell you!

1.  One of a kind resort stays.

2.  Memorable & endearing character interactions.

3.  Amazing, addicting, dream-about-while-away food options (pictured: Disneyland’s famous corn dogs)

4.  “Diamond in the Rough” attractions that capture the magic of Disney (pictured: the Peoplemover in Magic Kingdom)

5.  You feel at home.  Like you were meant to spend the happiest days of your life there.

6.  The customer service is amazing.  Seriously.  You won’t find happier people at work anywhere else, and it’s infectious.

Free Dining 2015???

DisneyWorldFreeDining

Welcome to the new year, to 2015!!  I don’t know about you – but for me, a new year means a new set of vacations to plan!!  And, given my line of work, you probably can guess where I’m dreaming of going this year.  If you are dreaming of a Disney World vacation, too, then you have come to the right place.  I can help you plan not only a magical trip, but an affordable trip.

Many people ask me when/if Disney will release a free dining discount for Disney in 2015.

The answer?  I don’t know anything for sure.

But my best guess is this:  We are going to see a Fall 2015 discount released in the first few days of May 2015.  If free dining is released for 2015, it will be in May (again, this is my best, educated guess).

What am I basing this on?  A couple things…in my years of being a Disney travel specialist I have seen free dining dates released in the month of May.  Last year, the 2014 free dining discount was released on May 2, 2014 for Disney VISA cardholders, and May 7, 2014 for the general public.  I expect to see something similar.

How is the best way to get the free dining discount for 2015, if it is released?  There is one huge way to increase YOUR chances of a wonderful Disney vacation with a FREE dining plan!

Email me:  sarad@fairytalejourneys.com or go here.  I can put you on my VIP list and email you as soon as I get word on the free dining discount.  I can book your trip now and apply the discount automatically if it releases in May 2015, or I can book your trip for you as soon as the discount is announced.  My services are always, always FREE and I just love to help plan & book Disney memories!

I’ll keep posting more details as they come.  We should see a Summer 2015 discount released late March 2015 first, so if you are interested in that one, let me know, too!
