Another week as come and come on the Dad For Disney blog so that must mean it’s time for another weekly update. This update will include last week’s articles as well since there was no update last week.
There have been reports, from guests staying at select Walt Disney World properties, that there have been changes to pricing structure to the refillable mugs. The single day, two-day, and three-day pricing has been eliminated. However, the total price has dropped from $17.99 to $16.49. The mug is still included when a guest purchases the Disney Dining Plan as part of their vacation package.
There is no word on whether this is a permanent change or one of Disney’s test balloons to see if a potential new policy is well-received by the visiting public. More to come as news becomes available.
In the past couple days, there are have been a number of people who have received surveys asking about “dynamic pricing” and Walt Disney World. This is not dynamic pricing in the truest sense of the word. Dynamic pricing is when the market, to a point, dictates what the price of a ticket for an event is going to be. Disney is investigating if it wants to maintain its current model of pricing or move to a more dynamic model of pricing where certain, more popular, dates will cost more than less popular dates.
Let me say that some business, mainly baseball teams, have been doing this for years. It’s done in an attempt to get more people to come to the “less popular” games while making more of a profit of the games that people are coming anyway. Usually, there is a price floor which the tickets if bought from the team do not fall below. People can still get tickets, below market value, if they purchase (at their own risk) from a third-party vendor.
Welcome to this month’s Magical Blogorail Orange loop. Today we are discussing the best Disney resorts for couples.
Most people think of Walt Disney World as a place for a family vacation. Walt Disney World can be a place for a couple to get away for a weekend as well. There are many great resorts at Walt Disney World to choose from and at a variety of price points depending on the budget. This article is going to focus on the Yacht Club resort. My wife and I, in August 2014, stayed at Yacht Club while our child was visiting her grandparents. It was a fun and relaxing weekend. What can a couple expect out of the Yacht Club resort?
This week’s Wordless Wednesday theme is music and memories. Just picture can spring forth a song from a person’s memory and there’s a good chance that song could be stuck in their head for the rest of the day. What song do these pictures remind you off?
