Top Attractions

Millenium Falcon Smugglers run (38″ tall to ride) – A motion simulator attraction in Galaxy’s Edge. Guests enter the iconic Millennium Falcon starship for a secret interactive smuggling mission, with each passenger playing a role in the completion of the mission. (Be careful how you fly because your flight team’s collective success or failure will be remembered by characters you encounter later around the land!)

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railroad (all ages) – The first Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through attraction at a Disney theme park, this trackless “dark ride” is based on the stylized world from the television series. *May cause motion-sickness*

Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage (all ages) – This Live musical, featuring Disney characters is performed in an open-air theater. The show is popular so be sure to show up 30 minutes early to get a seat if you don’t use Lightning Lane.

Muppet-Vision 3D (all ages)3D movie starring The Muppets. This show is a great attraction for all ages! The presentation can be intense and a little loud, so if you have a small child who is a little scared, encourage them to view it without the 3D glasses.

Toy Story Mania (all ages) 3D ride through an indoor shooting gallery. The pull string cannon on your ride vehicle takes advantage of computer- generated imagery to toss rings, shoot balls, and even throw pies.

Alien Swirling Saucers (32″ tall to ride) – Spinning car ride. Think the scrambler ride from the county fair but with trackless technology and a lot less neck breaking. Fun ride for kiddos!

Slinky Dog Dash (38″ tall to ride)Outdoor roller coaster. Themed to Toy Story’s Slinky Dog. The ride is more intense than the Magic Kingdom’s Barnstormer and Seven Dwarf Mine Train. Lots of hills but no loops or high speed curves. Long lines early!

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (40″ tall to ride)Sci-fi themed indoor thrill ride. Visually intimidating to young children; contains intense, realistic special effects. The plummeting elevator at the end of the ride frightens many adults. Many children don’t like the feeling of being pulled out of their seats. A big hit with teens!

Rise of the Resistance (40″ tall to ride)A combined trackless dark ride, walk-through, motion simulator, and drop ride system. Riders are in the middle of an altercation between the Resistance and the First Order. Intense ride that may frighten children under 8.

Top Attractions

The Barnstormer (35″ tall) Small roller coaster for kids new to coasters. If you want to see how your child handles riding coasters, this is the perfect testing ground.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (40″ tall to ride) -Western mining-themed coaster. A fun and entertaining queue but a rough ride

.

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger (all ages)Combination space travel-themed indoor ride and shooting gallery. A real winner – not to be missed!

Dumbo the Flying Elephant (all ages)Disney’s signature ride for children. Has a play area with interactive elements.

The Hall of Presidents – Behold all 44 Presidents of the United States in a stirring show tracing the nation’s history.

It’s a Small World – Indoor boat ride. Small boats carry visitors on a tour around the world, with singing and dancing dolls showcasing the dress and culture of each nation

Jungle Cruise Outdoor boat ride, fun and relaxing, and full of “Dad Jokes”. Some macabre sights might frighten young children.

Mad Tea Party (all ages) – Midway-type spinning ride. You can make the teacups spin faster by turning the wheel in the center. Not for those prone to motion sickness!

Magic Carpets of Aladdin (all ages) – Much like Dumbo but a Magic Carpet, watch out for the spitting camel positioned to spray jets of water on riders! Meet Jasmine & Aladdin nearby at Agrabah Bazaar.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (all ages) – Ride in a “Hunny Pot” through the pages of a huge picture book into the Hundred Acre Wood. Meet Pooh and Tigger nearby throughout the day.

Mickey’s Philharmagic (all ages*) – A 3D movie featuring Mickey and Donald along with other favorites!

Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor (all ages) – Interactive animated comedy routines. Behind the scenes Disney employees voice the characters and often interact with audience members.

Peter Pan’s Flight (all ages) – This dark ride (indoor) takes you on a relaxing trip in a “flying pirate ship” over old London and to Never Land.

Pirates of the Caribbean (all ages) – Indoor pirate-themed adventure boat ride. Intense boat ride with somewhat gruesome sights and a short, unexpected slide down a flume.

Princess Fairytale Hall (all ages) – Four royals meeting & greeting at any time & you can see two of them at once. Signs outside the entrance tell you which line leads to whom and how long the wait will be

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (38″ tall to ride) – Another great roller coaster for first time kiddos! While a popular ride, some believe that older grade school children who enjoy coasters are better off to save their Lightning Lane for Space Mountain or Big Thunder Railroad.

Space Mountain (44″ tall to ride) – Roller coaster in the dark! Involves sudden blackouts, abrupt turns & plummets. Many love this attraction, but if you’re not a thrill-seeker this ride is not for you.

Splash Mountain (40″ tall to ride) – Indoor/outdoor water-flume adventure ride. Most of the ride is slow, but the 52ft plunge down a steep chute at the end is a thrill. You WILL get wet on this ride!

Tomorrowland Speedway (32″ tall to ride w/adult – 54″ to drive unassisted) – Drive-em’ yourself mini-cars. Your child controls the steering wheel while you control the foot pedals. Children will feel like they’re really driving, even though they are on a self-guiding track.

Your Guide to Disney Dining

Your Guide to Disney Dining

Your Guide to Disney Dining

There are so many restaurants on Disney property, yet getting the reservation of your dreams can be tricky! Read on for a step-by-step guide to booking dining reservations before your upcoming vacation! 

 

Here Are Some Things to Know Before Booking Your Reservations

 There are three ways to  book a Disney dining reservation:  

  •  Online at 6:00 AM EST
  • By phone: (407) 939-752 or (407) WDW-DINE at 7:00 AM
  • Disney Vacation Club Members: (800) 800-9800 

Disney hold times can be outrageously long, so we suggest giving the online route a try first. Another great option is to book non-Disney-owned restaurants that are within Disney World Property via OpenTable.  

In-Park Dining

For all table-service restaurants located within Disney’s theme parks, Guests will need valid park admission and a reservation for park entry through the Disney Park Pass system—as well as a dining reservation. Dining reservations do not guarantee admission to the park. If you plan on park hopping to a second park for the evening, you will not need a park reservation at the second park. 

Quick Note: Many character meals and dinner shows are still on pause or modified, but hopefully, they’ll be returning very soon! To stay updated, keep an eye out on Disney’s official website. 

Disney Resort guests can make reservations for their stay up to 60 days in advance of their check-in date. That window is expanded by the length of your stay.  What does this mean? Well,  if you’re staying on-property, you’ll be able to make all of your dining reservations in one session, and improve your chances of securing some of the more popular reservations. 

On-Property Example:  A Guest checking into a Disney report on January 1st and checking out on January 8th, can make all of their dining reservations for their entire stay at 6:00 AM on November 2nd. 

Off-Property Example: A Guest staying at a resort that is not affiliated with Disney (off-property), checking in on January 1st, cannot make reservations until 6:00 AM 60 days before they are visiting the theme park, and will have to book dining reservations on a day by day basis. If they were planning on visiting Magic Kingdom on January 4th, they would not be able to make reservations until November 5th.

ProTip: Use this calculator to confirm your dining date(s) Dining Date Calculator.

Also, play around in the app and make and cancel dining reservations, so that you are already experienced prior to your dining date. There is no cancellation fee for dining that is canceled more than 24hours before a reservation.

 

Go to Disney’s Website: www.disneyworld.disney.go.com

Once you’re on Disney’s main homepage, go to the top of the page to log in with your Disney account.

If you haven’t made one yet, you’ll be required to make one before making any dining plans.  

Hover over “Things To Do” on Disney’s Homepage

Once you’re logged in, you’ll be directed back to the homepage. 

Hover over “Things To Do” on Disney’s Homepage.

Scroll to the Dining section and click “Make Reservations” 

Choose Your Requested Date, Time and Party Size

 

Now it’s time to choose your requested date, time slot, and the size of your party. 

For party size, you should include everyone including infants. 

 

 

 

 

Set Your Filters

Set Your Filters to refine your search to Disney parks, on-property resorts, and/or Disney Springs. 

Also, you can choose specific dining experiences from “Quick Service”, “Buffet”, “Casual Dining”, “Character Dining”, “Fine/Signature Dining”. 

Another filter that is super helpful to choose is the Cuisine. 

 If you want to choose multiple choices, you will have more options to choose from. 

For example, let’s say you are looking for a restaurant at Disney Springs on May 4th at dinner for a party of four, you are able to click all of your favorite cuisine options to see what they offer at your specific location and date.

Choose Your Reservation Time 

Once all your filters are set, you’ll see a list of restaurants that are set to your preferences.

Now it’s time to choose a restaurant and click on the available reservation times.

Select Your Dining Party

On this screen, you’ll need to select the members of your dining party. This would be yourself and others that are joining you for dinner.

Click “Next” on the lower right when you’re done.

 

Enter Your Payment Method

 

 Booking a table service meal reservation through Disney requires the use of a credit or debit card to hold the reservation. Your card on file will be charged a $10 per person cancellation fee if you do not show up for the reservation. 

Find more information on Disney Reservations on  Disney’s Website.

If you need to cancel, you are able to do so online 24 hours+ before your reservation.  If you choose to cancel within 24 hours of your reservation, you may have to call Disney directly. Just note, it is common for hold times to exceed 90 minutes.

When you’re at the restaurant you can choose a different method of payment to pay your bill. 

Add Your Food Allergies & Other Special Request Information

If you or anyone in your party has any food allergies or other special requests, click the “Add” button.


You’ll be brought to a page where you can select common allergens to avoid or request wheelchair-accessible seating. 

 

 

 

Reserve Your Meal

You’re finally on the last steps to booking your Disney World dining reservations! 

 You’ll need to add your email and phone number, read and agree to the Guest Policies and then click on the “Reserve button. 

Now you have your dining reservation!

 You will receive a confirmation screen and an email with all your confirmation information.

The reservation will automatically be added to your My Disney Experience account!

Happy Dining!

What's Happening Now at Walt Disney World

There have been lots of NEW updates and changes on Walt Disney World property over the past few weeks. From colorful, character filled parades, to fun Disney merchandise drops, meet and greet updates, and more, our Dream Team at My VIP Tour always has (our Minnie) ears on the latest Disney news.

Here are some exciting changes happening to keep you up to date for your next vacation.

March 18, 2022

Festival of Fantasy

Disney

Parades are finally back at Magic Kingdom! Prepared to be dazzled by all of the staple Disney characters as they celebrate the spirit and tales of FantasyLand.  Plus you’ll get to see the main characters of TangledPeter Pan and The Little Mermaid as they wind through the park on colorful and vibrant state-of-the-art floats. 

The show is 12 minutes of music, dancing and enchantment. 

 

NEW ‘Princess & the Frog’ Minnie Ears 

 

 It seems as if Disney is releasing new Minnie ears every week, but we are gushing over the latest drop, that are fit for royalty. 

 The Disney x Bauble Bar’s latest collaboration released a brand new pair of ears inspired by Princess and the Frog! These glamorous ears are wrapped in a beautiful green velour with a bejeweled gold tiara inspired by Princess Tiana’s signature outfit. The gold beading along the outer perimeter gives the ears an extra touch of elegance. 

The Princess and the Frog ears can be found online at Shop Disney for $49.99. 

Live in Full Bloom at Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival

The 2022 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival is happening now! From March 2 to July 4 there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the fresh flavors that Disney has cooked up! Although, there’s more than just food and drinks during this festival. Come marvel at nearly 100 topiaries of Disney characters, interactive gardens, and live music entertainment. 

If you haven’t attended an Epcot festival before, get ready to have a deliciously good time!

Cinderella’s Royal Table Character Meet-and-Greet Update

Cinderella has made her way to the lobby of Cinderella’s Royal Table, and will now be available to meet and take photos with guests after check in. If you’ve been excited for a family picture with a true princess, make sure to book your reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table for your next vacation! 

MVT Pro Tip: Staying on Disney property, and booking your dining 60 days before your arrival will increase your chance of finding a reservation. We suggest booking it at the end of your trip, when you should find more availability.  Cancelations tend to occur in the days leading up to your arrival, so keep checking your My Disney Experience app, and make sure you have a credit card saved as this is a prepaid experience. Cinderella’s Royal Table is $60+ for adults and $37+ for children.

More Character Meet & Greet Updates

There are many new and exciting changes happening with character meet and greets! 

Recently, Disney is bringing more and more characters back into the parks to greet guests. Currently, you may see the following characters at these parks:

Magic Kingdom: Mickey Mouse, Cinderella & Elena, Rapunzel & Tiana
Epcot: Mickey Mouse, Elsa & Anna, Snow White, Belle, Sleeping Beauty
Hollywood Studios: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Olaf      Animal KingdomMickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald are back at Tusker House (dining reservations needed)

Keep checking back here for updates on more traditional Meet and Greets, our fingers and toes are crossed that hugs and autographs will be back soon!

2021 Walt Disney World Resort Reservations Now Available

2021 Walt Disney World Resort Reservations Now Available

Walt Disney World Resort Reservations are now available through December 31st, 2021! We know so many families have been waiting for this moment since canceling or rescheduling their 2020 trips due to Covid-19. If you are not traveling to the parks this year, but would like to next year, now is the time to get started! 

Resort Packages vs. Room Only Reservations

All resort reservation packages are now available through the end of 2021, with or without the purchase of theme park tickets. You can book your accommodation in two ways:

Resort Packages: When booking a resort package, you are able to reserve your accommodation as well as your theme park tickets for your stay. This pricing comes together in a package and can be modified if needed before your arrival.

Room-Only: A room-only reservation does not include your theme park tickets. Theme park tickets can be purchased separately at a later date.

 

Park Ticket Details 

Walt Disney World is currently offering guests to purchase park tickets along with their accommodations or separately for all dates in 2021. Park Hopper tickets are also currently available, however as the parks are still running as a one-park-per-day limit, Park Hopper tickets are not guaranteed at time of travel.

Please note: If you have purchased your park tickets, entrance into the parks is not guaranteed until you have made park reservations for your specific dates. We highly recommend making your park reservations as soon as your accommodation is booked and tickets are purchased.

There are lots of accommodation options to choose from on Walt Disney World property and where you decide to stay all depends on your schedule, your resort preferences, and resort availability.
