Walt Disney World’s Night Time Magic

Walt Disney World’s Night Time Magic

 

 Whether it’s your first time at Walt Disney World, or you have visited more times than you can remember, there is always something new and exciting to see and do. Getting to the parks early is a great way to see everything before the crowds come in; however, some of the most magical Disney experiences happen at night, and you sure don’t want to miss them!

Here is our list of “Late Night Must Do’s” while on your next WDW vacation:

1. Celebrate the Magic- Cinderella’s Castle, Magic Kingdom

Watch Cinderella’s Castle light up with story-telling imagery of Disney classics, such as: Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, The Lion King, Aladdin, and more! Your favorite Disney characters will take you on an exciting and breathtaking journey with movie clips, graphics, and pictures all displayed on the Castle walls.

 2. Wishes Nighttime Spectacular- Magic Kingdom

An absolute must for your whole family! This 12 minute firework show is every little piece of magic you are looking for on your Disney vacation. Tinker Bell makes a special appearance as she flies from the top of Cinderella’s Castle and starts the Wishes celebration. Make sure you take your cameras out for the finale, it’s truly breathtaking! 🙂

 3. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth- Epcot

Aim to visit Epcot in the afternoon, so you can walk through the World Showcase, with enough time to see the night time show, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. IllumiNations is a 3 part show which tells the story of our planet from birth, to the hope of the future. A glowing globe travels across the Lagoon showing history and achievements of our time, and ends with flames, music, and fireworks. IllumiNations can be viewed from almost anywhere around World Showcase and from select restaurants.

4. Fantasmic- Hollywood Studios

Watch all your favorite Disney Princesses, Characters and Villians perform in this beautiful 30-minute water and firework show! From Disney songs, to animation, to one million gallons of dancing water, this is definitely a must for the whole family!

5. Main Street Electrical Parade- Magic Kingdom

This amazing 20 minute music parade spectacular takes place at Magic Kingdom usually twice per day. The parade includes numerous decorated floats that adorn half a million lights and your favorite Disney characters. Tip: Find a place to stand (or sit) on Main Street about 20 minutes prior to show time for the best view!

Take advantage of our services for your evening park adventures, too! Let us take care of parade or show seating for your entire party, while you enjoy the rest of the park! Call us to book your dream vacation today: (407-913-8375).

The Walt Disney World parks are so busy around the holidays, that they often max out their occupancy around mid-day and refuse guests entry. If you aren’t able to spend the entire day from morning until midnight at the parks, you might come across this problem. Below is a couple of options for a New Year’s Celebration outside of the park chaos, while still being able to see a spectacular show.

New Year’s Eve Outside of the Parks: 

California Grill, Contemporary Resort: Enjoy a delicious dinner created by the top chefs at Walt Disney World while watching the New Years Eve Fireworks over the Seven Seas Lagoon. Mickey, Minnie, and Donald join in on the fun of ringing in the New Year. Seating is at 8pm, and tickets must be purchased in advance. Price: $625

Narcoossee’s, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa: Local and global seafood selections, mouth-watering steaks, and incredible views of Cinderella’s Castle for the New Year’s Eve celebration!

Early Dinner (seating between 5:00pm-5:45pm): $159.75 Adult, $74.55 Children.

Late Dinner Price (seating between 8:30pm-9:30pm): $317.48 Adult, $118.28 Children.

The Holidays are such a special time of year, “Build Better Memories” with your family and friends by having a Disney VIP Tour Guide by your side. Skip the long wait times for rides and characters, and have the best seat for every show! Call us for more information today: (407) 913 8375.

Want to Sit Back, Relax, and Actually Have Fun at Disney World?

Want to Sit Back, Relax, and Actually Have Fun at Disney World?

My VIP Tour Disney

My VIP Tour makes your time at Disney stress free and fun.

Planning any trip to Disney World has become more difficult, especially during peak times like Thanksgiving, Christmas, summer, and springtime school breaks. Because no matter how much time and effort you put into planning a trip for your family—every other family is doing the same thing—especially, since the introduction of Disney’s Fast Pass. This is why it makes sense to turn your trip over to a Disney World “My VIP Tour” guide.

Four Ways Your Disney World VIP Tour Guide Makes Your Trip More Fun and Relaxing.

My VIP Tour Disney 2

Kids having fun at Disney in Orlando with Anna from Frozen

1. A Disney World VIP Tour Guide gets you onto all of the attractions with minimal wait times. While most families can only select three fast pass attractions your Disney Tour Guide will get you onto all of the rides with 5-10 minute waits. Want to meet your children’s favorite characters without the long lines? Your Disney VIP Guide will set up meet and greets throughout the day.

Visiting Cinderella at Disney Orlando

Cinderella visit at Disney

As a bonus, our guides will tell your family where the camera is located on of all of the rides, so everyone can smile a great big smile at exactly the right time. Smiling at the right time gives your family great photographic memories to take home.

2. Our Private Disney VIP Tour Guides will help you get the best seats for some of the biggest shows. Why is this important? Because sitting in the right place increases the chances of being pulled up on stage during the show.  Getting on stage is a wonderful memory that you can all smile and laugh about for years to come.

Elsa from Frozen

3. Your Private Disney VIP Tour Guide will set up private transportation so you don’t have to worry about parking and finding your car at the end of the day. Your VIP Guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel each morning and your Private VIP Driver will be waiting outside. Your VIP experience starts the minute you set foot outside your resort, not just at the park. Upon request your Disney Tour Guide will even set up private transportation to pick you up from the airport. Just ask and they will deliver.

4. The final benefit of hiring a Disney World VIP Tour Guide is that every one of our “My VIP Tour” Guides knows special tricks that maximize every Disney World ride, show, dinner, and fireworks display experience—and so much more.

Our VIP Tour Guides reduce your stress—-so all your family has to do is to sit back, relax and have fun!
