Shop Til You Drop at the D23 Expo 2017

Shop ‘Til You Drop at the D23 Expo 2017

I learned very quickly at the D23 Expo 2015 that one truly can “shop ‘til you drop!” First, the official Disney stores have so much cool stuff. Many of the items are D23 Expo exclusives. They are not available anywhere else. Because of this, I seriously overspent. Add in the shopping opportunities from all the vendors and you truly have a Disney shopper’s nirvana (or worst nightmare since they will have to choose between so many cool things).

The Disney Store – The first time I went to the D23 Expo, I did not understand the importance of going to The Disney Store early. The lines were super long and I figured I Continue reading

Where to Book Early When Making Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World Resort

Not All Dining Reservations Are Created Equal – Where to Book Early When Making Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World Resort

Looking for tips for your first Disney vacation? Look no further. This month’s Blogorail Blue Loop is sharing tips for your first Disney vacation.


A few weeks ago, I covered when and how to make dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort, but in reality, that’s kind of the easy part. With so many choices, how does one decide where to make dining reservations? It really comes down to personal preference, the food is great at all of the table service restaurants, but there are a few tips that everyone should know.

Not All Dining Reservations Are Created Equal - Where to Book Early When Making Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World ResortFirst, there are a few restaurants where very early reservations are an absolute must. It is even possible that these restaurants won’t have any availability as soon as the reservations open up. This is because many visitors make sure to be on the Walt Disney World website or on the phone with dining reservations as soon as the 180 day mark hits.  In addition, those staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can book dining reservations once it is 180 days from their check in date, even for days later in their stay (up to 10 days), so reservations 181 days or even 190 days out could be taken by those guests. Even though reservations officially open at 7am Eastern each day, many advise getting on the computer earlier and trying prior to that if you’re looking for one of these extremely popular dining locations that include: Continue reading
