There is so much more to experience at Disney World this summer.  What are you waiting for?

New Disney Visa Offer for Walt Disney World?

This morning we read on DisneyDining.com that there is a new Disney Visa Card Holder offer for summer room discounts.  What surprised me about this was it said that it started today and Disney Visa offers typically have started on Thursdays or Mondays with the opposite day opening to the public.  Here’s what we found out.

There is no Disney Visa offer today.  The offer will start tomorrow with this opening to the public on Monday, March 17.  It looks like it will be a summer discount.

As usual, we will be on with Disney tomorrow to work on new reservations for our Disney Visa Cardholder clients and the public on Monday.

Put your request in today for your quote here!  If you are a Disney Visa Cardholder, note that on your request so we know to work on that quote tomorrow morning.

Let’s Adventure Together!

“I’ve always wanted to see ____________________”.  Fill in the blank.  For me, of the places I haven’t been yet I would probably have to add England, Germany, the Baltics among others.  Sure, you can plan a trip to those locations, put together all the hotels, tours, plans, meals.  Or you can do it with little effort on your part with a company known for its hospitality, service excellence and storytelling.

Disney World Ticket Pricing Increase

We heard of ticket pricing increases coming for Disney World last night and sure enough, they did. Ticket prices for one day at Magic Kingdom has gone up to $99 plus tax.  Ticket prices across the board increased with one exception (though it remains to be seen if this is an error or intentional).

According to ticket pricing on Disney Travel Agents site, pricing for Magic Your Way base tickets, including taxes are (10+/3-9):

  • 2 day – $200.22/$186.38
  • 3 day – $291.81/$271.58
  • 4 day – $313.11/$291.81
  • 5 day – $323.76/$302.46
  • 6 day – $334.41/$313.11
  • 7 day – $345.06/$323.76
  • 8 day – $355.71/$334.41
  • 9 day  – $366.36/$345.06
  • 10 day – $377.01/$355.71

Park hopper and Water Park Fun and More options increased to $63.90 each or $91.59 for both options.  The only exception to this is for 2 and 3 day tickets which are pricing at $52.19 for the park hopper option only.  If you add both options, it is still pricing at $91.59.  This very well could be an error on the site.

No expiration options are still available as well, but have gone up too.  Pricing includes taxes:

  • 2 day – $42.60
  • 3 day – $53.25
  • 4 day  – $106.50
  • 5 day – $170.40
  • 6 day – $223.65
  • 7 day – $266.25
  • 8 day – $287.55
  • 9 day – $314.18
  • 10 day – $362.10

The silver lining in this however, is that package pricing did not seem to increase, just separately purchased tickets.

Every year we see an increase in the ticket pricing at all the major theme parks.  When is it too much?

It’s Time To Plan A Vacation!

For the last week, many of us have been dealing with weather issues – bitter cold and incredible amounts of snow or rain.  Our temperature this morning was 42 degrees warmer than yesterday morning!  And it’s still cold!  Everyone is talking about it on Facebook, in the stores, on the news.  But what can you do?

It’s Time To Plan A Vacation!

Now is the perfect time to plan your next vacation.  Where do you want to go?  Disney World, a cruise, an all-inclusive, or how about a group tour like Adventures by Disney?  Right about now, sitting on my balcony, watching the ocean go by with a tropical drink in my hand sounds amazing!  My toes just smiled thinking about digging in a white sandy beach in the tropics.  Even my Alaska cruise for this summer sounds fantastic because it can’t be anywhere near the temperatures we have seen!

Ok, so I’ve convinced you it’s time to look at planning another vacation.  What’s next?  Contact your Travel On A Dream agent or just visit our website and put in a request for a quote.  You can also call us at 888-681-1240 and select option 1.  We will put you in touch with any of our agents qualified to help you plan your perfect escape.  Whether it is now or in the next couple of years, it will give you something to look forward to.

How About An Incentive?

We have three for you!  For each reservation you book totaling $2,000 or more (a reservation is one confirmation number), you will receive a bonus $25 onboard credit (for cruises) or a $25 gift card, given at the time of travel.  Airfare is excluded in the total cost of the reservation.  The onboard credit is in addition to our Loyalty Program!

If you refer others to us, we always offer a referral bonus.  For all referrals with deposits applied between January 10 –  January 31, 2014, the referral bonus will be double!  See our website for details on the referral program.

Finally, if you are referring or are referred through sharing on social media, you will be entered to win a $50 gift card!  We will have two to give out — one for a referrer and one for a new client.  Here’s how you enter — share our Facebook page, Twitter user @TravelOnADream, or this blog with all your friends and tell them to tell us you sent them.  All your friends need to do is contact us to help plan their next vacation.  Once they have paid their deposit, they will be entered and so will you!

All three of these incentives are available for new bookings between January 10 and January 31, 2014.  We will draw for the winners on February 1, 2014.

What Do Your Services Cost Me?

In most cases, NOTHING!  For Disney Destinations and all cruises, we do not charge a service fee.  We are paid by the travel supplier after you complete your travel.  And they won’t charge you more to work with us.  It’s the best of both worlds!  We do charge a small service fee for airline, car rentals, other hotels and itinerary planning when booked separately, but not as a part of a package.  If you have booked a cruise or a Disney Destination with us, we will not charge you for the extras you need to make your vacation complete.  Our agents will take care of all of your itinerary planning, including dining arrangements and touring recommendations.

So What Are You Waiting For?
