Fall Discounts and Free Dining at Walt Disney World

Editor’s Note:  Today’s blog is from our agent Deb Feaster.  Thanks Deb!

Today Disney World has released two new promotions for those of you traveling between mid-August and the end of September, 2013.

The first offer is for travel dates from August 15 to September 28 and is a room discount.  Rooms booked under this promotion can be upgraded with tickets and the dining plan for a package (they cannot receive free dining though).  Discounts range from 5% to 30% off the room rate and must be booked by July 31, 2013.

The second offer is for free dining!  For arrivals between September 2 and September 25, 2013, you can qualify for a free dining plan with your non-discounted package of at least three nights with at least a two day ticket.  For packages at a value resort, the quick service dining plan would be included at no extra cost.  For packages at moderate, deluxe and deluxe villa resorts, the plus dining plan is included at no extra cost.  You must book this offer by July 31, 2013 as well.

With the free dining offer, you can upgrade your dining plan for the difference in the normal price of the dining plan you are getting for free and the dining plan you would like instead.

Some restrictions do apply and availability is very limited.  Campsites, 3 bedroom villas and Little Mermaid standard rooms at the Art of Animation are excluded from this offer.

Updates to the Disney Magic Announced

This information is preliminary from the press conference today but wanted to share it with you all right away.  We are following Inside the Magic with their posts.

The Disney Magic will be undergoing a major dry dock this fall.  First we will see a water slide called the Aqua Dunk.  The atrium will get a magical makeover as well.

As previously reported, Parrot Cay will become Carioca’s which will be Brazillian inspired and more upscale at night.  Animation Magic as seen on the Disney Fantasy will also be brought to Animator’s Palate on the Magic.

Oceaneer’s Club will get the Marvel Avengers Academy.

We will bring you more information as it comes available.  Who wants to cruise with us October 20, 2013 on the new Disney Magic?

PHOTO TOUR: Fantasy Faire Debuts at Disneyland

Disneyland’s Fantasy Faire is a charming new village located just off the Hub, giving the Disney princesses a much needed permanent residence inside the park.  Small in space, but rich in detail, there’s much more to this area than just your standard character meet & greet, ensuring that Fantasy Faire will be a hit with the whole family.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of our friends, clients and fans (many of you fall into multiple categories)!  We have enjoyed helping you plan your vacations in 2012 and look forward to planning many more trips with you in 2013 and beyond.  We wish you and yours a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2013.

We have a lot to look forward to in 2013.  We will have a couple group sailings – on Oasis of the Seas in April and the Disney Magic in October.  There is still room for you to join us!  We also are looking to begin offering more to you in 2013.  From new promotions to new travel vendors, we plan to be able to offer an even more complete package for your travel needs.

We always encourage travel insurance, especially when traveling out of the country.  In the past we have offered insurance through the travel vendor or recommended checking online for alternative options, but in 2013 Travel On A Dream will start offering independent travel insurance for you as well.  We are excited to be able to offer this to you.

Happy New Year!

Juneau, Alaska
