Grandma, Grandpa, Minnie & Mickey

We’re on the count down to our first Disney vacation. Our last two vacations have included my parents (granny & grandpa to my children). It has been really great travelling with them, but for this trip we are flying solo.

My parents are in their 50’s, pretty active, I never really worry about them being able to ‘keep up with us’ on vacation. I came across an interesting article though, about the perks of taking the grandparents with you to Disney World:

“Looking back on the five days in central Florida, we realized that a three-generation visit to Walt Disney World is an ideal plan. Not only do grandparents get to spend quality time with their children and grandchildren, but there’s usually someone to watch over little ones while parents and older kids enjoy the more challenging rides.” http://www.canada.com/travel/activities/survive+Walt+Disney+World+with+grandparents+kids/803163/story.html

It might be something to consider…next time!

Disney’s Birthday Bash

Free admission to Disney? Nothing comes for free at Disney’s theme parks, until now.

For 2009 Disney Parks are offering free admission to anyone (over the age of 3)on their birthday. You can pre-order your free ticket or show up on the day of your birthday (with proof of birth date) and receive free admission.

Now that would be a birthday party! Rides, candy, characters…very hard to top that for next year’s party. With some theme park tickets starting at $59 for a 3 year old, you might want to schedule your visit around a birthday.
