Ready….Set…..BOOK! Your 2019 Walt Disney World trip, that is!

If you go to Disney every year like we do, you must be getting excited that the 2019 Walt Disney  Travel Company Package Rates will be released on Tuesday, June 19th!~!~!~!

More than any year that I can even remember,  2019 is going to be the year to go to Walt Disney World!  Toy Story Land is opening in two weeks and it will still be wildly popular well in to the new year! Of course, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and we can’t forget Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway….all brand new lands and attractions you will want to be sure to experience!

My advice for 2019 is BOOK EARLY because that will give you the best choice of your resort and availability.   Of course, we always recommend having a travel agent handle those busy details for you!  Whether you book your vacation yourself or have our official travel agency, Dreams by Design Travel, book it for you, you are paying the same price! In fact, by booking online with Disney or over the phone, a commission is built in to the price so you are paying for a service you don’t receive!  Dreams by Design charges NO FEES for their CONCIERGE SERVICE! Always Book your Disney vacation with a Disney Earmarked Agency!

Dreams by Design Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner!  We have been given this special designation by The Walt Disney Travel Company because we have demonstrated a high level of service and expertise that our clients know and have come to expect! Let us SHOW YOU!                        ~DONNA~

Lost Something While at Disney? Now it’s Easier than EVER to get it back!

Disney now has a new way to report your lost items while visiting their parks!

Via Disney Parks Blog

A day at Walt Disney World Resort is sure to be adventurous and filled with fun, but sometimes in all that excitement it can be easy to lose track of your personal belongings. That’s why Disney is introducing an online tool to make it even easier and more convenient for you to report lost items.

Did you know if you lose something in one of the parks, water parks, Disney Springs, ESPN Wide World of Sports or on Disney transportation, you can now visit DisneyWorld.com/lostandfound, input information about your lost item, and then Disney will  do the searching for you? They can even send you periodic updates on the search right to your email address, whether you’re still visiting Walt Disney World Resort or have already returned home.  If you lose something at your resort, you are asked to contact your resort directly so they can check there for you.

All it takes is a few simple clicks on any smart device, to get the search started. It’s so easy, it’s like magic!

  • Step 1: Visit DisneyWorld.com/lostandfound to get started.
  • Step 2: Enter information about your lost item.
  • Step 3: Fill in your contact information and click submit!

Have additional questions? Disney cast members are always happy to help and more information is available at DisneyWorld.com/lostandfound.

I think this is a great enhancement to the Lost and Found process!     ~Donna~

Nowhere is this more evident than at the resort hotels on Disney property. While all the Disney hotels decorate to some degree, there are certain ones that stand out as especially beautiful and festive! They give a whole new meaning to “Haul out the Holly!”

Three years ago, my husband and I were fortunate enough to take our children to Europe for a last big family vacation before our eldest headed off to college. The highlight of our trip was the few days we spent in Rome, Italy. Seeing the Colosseum and touring the Museums of The Vatican was absolutely amazing, truly a dream fulfilled. That said, in hindsight, I would have done things differently. The biggest change I would have made to our trip would have been taking an Adventures By Disney vacation! Having someone there that could have guided us along, answered questions, made recommendations, and secured the best experiences would have turned our good family vacation into a great family vacation.
