T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My Top Fastpass+ Picks – Hollywood Studios

Last week I talked about how my Disney vacation is coming soon (under 100 days now!) and that I was working on my top Fastpass+ picks for the Magic Kingdom. Since then, I have been doing even more planning – and have finalized our top Hollywood Studios Fastpass+ Picks:

FP HS1

Slinky Dog Dash has been under construction since last fall, and will finally be opening to the masses at the end of this month along with the rest of Toy Story Land. I am REALLY REALLY hoping to snag fastpasses for this – as my son loves Toy Story, and he especially loves Slinky Dog – so fingers crossed we can get this one!

FP HS2

Star Tours – This is one that everyone in my family will love – my husband love Star Wars (and the ride), and my son is a big fan of it too – he hasn’t ridden it yet since this will be his first Disney World trip – but I have a feeling he will love the experience – the 3-D glasses, boarding the “vehicle”, the droids, etc

FP HS3

The Tower of Terror is one of my personal favorites – I remember waiting in line for over 2 hours when it first opened – and then boarding that creepy “Service Elevator” for the journey into the Twilight Zone…I love all thinks horror so this is right up my alley. My son also enjoys creepy/spooky stuff, so I am hoping he likes this – it might end up being a bit scary for him as he is only 3 – but I am hoping he is at least willing to try it!

Stay tuned next week for more of my Fastpass+ picks!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Adding Some Extra “Magic” To Your Magic Bands

Have you been to Disney World recently? If so, you probably have had a chance to try out their new Magic Band system – and if not, let me give you a quick rundown on what you’re missing out on: the Magic Band is essentially a bracelet that contains and electronic chip, which acts as your park ticket, your method of payment at the Parks for souvenirs/food etc, your WDW Resort room key, and it even stores your Fastpass/Dining Reservation information too. Pretty cool for a little bracelet, right? The design of the band itself is pretty basic – so of course people have come up with plenty of ways to personalize their Magic Bands:

There are plenty of accessories available for sale at the Disney Parks

MB 2

….And then there’s the “after-market” Magic Band Accessories – many of which are available through sites like Etsy

MB 7

MB 5

Or if you’re the crafty type, you can always decorate it yourself

Personally I like to keep it simple – a little Muppet charm and I’m good to go!

“My Disney Experience” Makes WDW Planning Easy And Fun!

I am a planner. It’s in my blood. I can’t help it. I like to be organized, and to have itineraries and lists and all that jazz – especially when it comes to vacations. And now – thanks to the “My Disney Experience” app and website – planning for Walt Disney World trips has gotten much easier – and more fun!

The website allows you to create a profile (complete with a Disney Character pic to complement your personality!) and once you are setup, you can link your Resort reservations, as well as Dining ADR’s, and you can even add which fireworks shows and parades you want to see, as well as fastpass+ reservations

I have been playing around with it for about a week now, and It’s pretty cool – It pulls up a calendar style list of your daily dining/faspasses/shows, and you can add other people to it or share plans with other Disney fans

I also have the app on my iphone – and it is also easy to use, and the information I save on the online website easily transfers to the app and is immediately available for viewing

I suggest you check it out – it can help you organize your trip, plus it is something you can do to get excited about the fact that you’re DISNEY BOUND!
