Our Top 7 Tips for Your Dream Disney Holiday
1. Build Excitement Before You Go
For your kids, arrange a magical call from Mickey Mouse. Simply log into www.wdwmickeycall.co.uk and enter your phone number, select a date and time you want to receive the call. Best of all, it’s completely free!
2. Any Lego Fans?
You won’t need to fork out yet more money for a ticket to Legoland, you can get your Lego fix in Downtown Disney at the giant Lego Store. Not only can you play with the Lego placed outside the entrance to the store (and race your newly built cars against others on the slope provided), but the huge characters made completely out of Lego in and around the store are not only impressive, but also great for a family photo!
3. Fancy Free Soda?
If you head to Epcot you’ll find an exhibit called ‘Club Cool’ situated near Innoventions West. Sponsored by Coca-Cola, they offer free samples of soft drinks from around the world, as well as other Coca-Cola goodies.
4. Celebrating at Disney
Take a visit to Guest Services, located just inside each park and let them know what you’re celebrating. Not only will you be given an “I’m celebrating…” button to wear, but you may just find that Cast Members who notice will add a little magic of their own!
5. Meeting Mickey
If you want a more meaningful interaction with the main mouse then head to Town Square Theatre in Magic Kingdom! Not only do you get to meet Mickey Mouse, you can have a conversation with him. If you’re lucky, he may even display a card trick or make you laugh with his jokes. tripsologists think this is well worth a visit.
6. Need a haircut?
The Harmony Barbour Shop on Main Street within Magic Kingdom is actually a real working barber shop! Why not arrange a quick snip round the ears for someone by calling (407) 939-7529. Being a Disney barbers, this is sure to be a cut-above-the-rest with a few surprises thrown in for good measure!
7. Get Post from your Favourite Disney Character
