Let the Memories Begin…

“Let the Memories Begin” is Disney’s theme for 2011.  As part of this promotion, Disney is going to use photos/videos of ACTUAL PARK GUESTS. (Insert yawn.)

Starting in January 2011, Disney PhotoPass photographers will take pix of the guests throughout the day. In the evening, up to 500 images will be projected with accompanying music on the “it’s a small world”  facade at Disneyland and on “Cinderella’s Castle” in Disney World.  I don’t know about you, but I foresee even more people cramming themselves into an already tight space trying to get a glimpse of themselves.

Another aspect of this promotion is using  guest photos/videos/stories in Disney’s advertising. You can submit your’s on this site:

The “Let the Memories Begin” theme is pretty short on details. As a result, the initial response has been underwhelming. Let’s hope that there’s more to it than this.

We’ve saved some big bucks in Vegas, New York City and Annapolis, MD.  Traveling to Disney? House of Blues in Downtown Disney is one of the participating restaurants as well as every restaurant at the Swan/Dolphin resorts. (I’m going to have to get one for Bluezoo.)

Each restaurant has its own restrictions so be sure to read the “fine print”.  Most all of them tack on an 18% gratuity. Even if the tip comes to $25, you only paid anywhere from $10 to $2 for it.
