    Seeking additional budget 'hacks' that you may use

    Hello all. I wanted to see if anyone had any additional budget 'hacks' they use to pay off their Disney vacation. The main reason is my wife, while she has had a great time both our trips, doesn't want to spend the money to go back and would like to experience other things. I, however, want to...

    Question around Star Wars Day at Sea

    Hello All. First, I have never looked at Disney cruises in much detail. Always thought they were overpriced compared to RC/Carnival and I could get equal amounts of 'adult' fun. However, someone let me know there is such thing as Star Wars cruises and I immediately became interested. Has anyone...

    General DVC questions

    Hey all! So with our recent honeymoon we are sort of teasing getting a DVC - mainly because my parents are wanting to move to FL. While we are waiting for them to make that decision: We are from Nebraska - we don't get to FL often. We would most likely make a yearly trip down there, maybe twice...

    Disney expanded 60 day rule??

    I was prepared to wake up at 4:40 am every day for the next 8 days to take advantage of booking our top choices on the first day available. Soon as 5 am Central hit, Disney allowed me to book up until 12-4? Didn't want to make the screenshot super small but on 12-4 we got Royal Table.

    Hey family! So I know you can book dining 60 days out now, but what's the soonest time you can book? Is it Midnight eastern on the 60th day or?

    Honeymoon ideas - Covid Edition

    So when we were planning our initial Honeymoon we saw a lot of additional activities we wanted to do instead of just parks, dining and relaxing. Covid of course cancelled that trip and knocked out the ideas (lost the darn list when we moved into our home). We arrive 11/27 and wanted to gauge if...

    Disney Premier Card Question w/ Magic Bands

    Hello family! We are new owners of the Disney Premier Rewards card (the Millennium Falcon card is awesome, but the card number is hard to read on the back :( ). I understand that card holders can get shopping and dining discounts at Disney at select locations. Does this automatically apply if I...

    Is there something going on 12/3-12/5?

    I've been trying to navigate into a preferred room at Pop for our trip (11/27-12/5) and I can only get until 12/3. After that, it appears its booked and even AoA didn't have any regular rooms during those dates. I tried calling Disney and they pretty much told me there's nothing that can be done...

    Need shoes for Disney - Nike preferred

    So I wasn't sure where to post this, but trip planning felt appropriate. I have a gift card for Nike and definitely need to get me a new pair of walking shoes for Disney. I wore a pair of Jordans (6 rings) for three days last time and that was the worst mistake ever. I literally filled our tub...

    POP prices in March - whew!

    It looks like Pop per night in March is ranging from 232-265 a night on average. Is that normal for that time of the year? I was looking at surprising my wife with the Flower festival they are doing but at those prices theres no way in heck. I am wondering if All Stars being closed and people...

    Current bounce back offers?

    Last question of the night while I am waiting 78 days for our trip :) Anyone have any idea if Disney is doing bounce back offers right now and if so, what are those offers like? I know in the past they have tried to throw on free dining with a bounce back, but with that not being offered, was...

    Are they still taking luggage from the airport for you?

    Silly question but figure I would ask - I know ME is running, but are they taking your luggage to your room for you like before? Wasn't sure if that changed with Covid. TIA!

    Wife and I have never been to Disney during the holidays (heck, this is her second trip ever and my fourth). With the recent holiday updates - do you have any thoughts on what to expect? I definitely figured the party at MK was going to be cancelled, but not going to lie, we were excited about...

    Coronado Springs or Pop?

    Hello all! I am trying to decide if I want to go with CS or Pop. CS looks to be about $400 overall more than Pop and we are going 11/27-12/5. What is most important to me: 1. Decorative - between the two I am not sure which one is more decorated for the Holidays. It would be awesome to be...
