I just returned from a long weekend trip down to Disney World for the Marathon weekend to spectate, not run thankfully. While I was down there I split my stay between the Hilton Bonnet Creek and Walt Disney World Dolphin so I could experience both resorts and review them for you. I also like to stay at different resorts during trips because I find it fun to experience new hotels, locations and amenities.
The Swan and Dolphin are interesting resorts – you use the official Disney transportation, get access to Extra Magic Hours but don’t get access to Magical Express and you can’t use Magic Bands at the resort. It’s an odd in-between of an offsite resort and an official resort where you get all of the perks. [click to continue…]
One of the better dining (and slightly cheaper) options at Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney) is the Earl of Sandwich. Earl of Sandwich recently rolled out their new loyalty program, Club Sandwich which is giving out one free sandwich after registering. In addition to the free sandwich when you sign up you also get a freebie on your birthday plus other “exclusive offers” when joining the club.
Sign Up Here <–
If you have a family you could register everyone for the club and get a free lunch or dinner for everyone at Downtown Disney. It’ll save you about $10 or so a person so a decent savings if you register everyone in your family to get a free sandwich.
It’s not too often that you get anything for free at Disney World so I would definitely take advantage of this offer!
As I’m writing up this post it’s a beautiful 20 degrees outside (although sunny). Having come from warm and beatufiful central Florida it’s quite a shock to the system going back to weather 50 degrees colder. I just returned from a great trip down to the ‘World to watch my brother run the Disney 10k as part of the Marathon Weekend.
I wanted to share some thoughts, notes and observations from my trip along with some of the pictures I took while there. Overall it was an amazing trip as always, all of the parks are looking good as usual but a lot of construction which I like to see. That means we’ll be seeing some new things coming soon which I’m very excited about. [click to continue…]
Disney has released an extension to an interesting discount offer for 2015 specifically for families of three. With this offer they are targeting new families with their first child to encourage them to take a trip with their first born to Disney World. Interesting angle they’re taking with this discount, wonder if it will have much of an impact on families of three taking trips.
Let’s take a look into this discount’s details! [click to continue…]
I’m currently in the process of booking my trip for early January 2015 for a quick weekend trip with my family to watch my brother run in the 10k race as part of the marathon weekend. I normally would have booked this trip much earlier but things have been busy (and a little procrastination) so just getting around to getting everything finalized now. With christmas coming up I was looking to make this trip as frugal as possible which meant minimizing as many costs as I can.
