Disney Tuesday

Disney News updates: I knew they would change this back as soon as the online dining reservation system was in place and working well. Disney announced that effective October 27, 2009, you will again be able to make Disney dining reservations 180 days (6 months) in advance. Thanks Mickey. I am not really shocked that Disney went ahead with this price increase even though the economy is down. They historically have had price increases in January and August each year. They skipped last August so they had to do it this time. They extended the free dining thru the end of the year to make up for the ticket price increase. Now a one-day, one-park base ticket now costs $79 for adults, $68 for children 3-9, an increase of $4 adult/$5 child. Adult Annual Passes went up $10 to $479; Renewal Adult AP went up $20 to $449. The Park Hopper option and Water Park Fun & More option both went up $2 to $52. Today's tip: “When visiting the Magic Kingdom right when it opens, hop on the train and take it to first stop. You will get off in the back of the park right by Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. You can usually ride these two "sought-after" rides while everyone else is hanging out on Main Street meeting characters, renting strollers, or walking to the front sections of the park.” Have a magical day! Cindy
