It has been reported (and not officially) that WDW will close the standby line for the Meet and Greet for Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairy Tale Hall in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom starting today July 23rd 2014. Standby waits have exceed over 300 minutes and FastPass+ reservations getting scooped up in minutes with the recent overwhelming popularity of Disneys hit animated movie Frozen.
From the source Temporary Tourist, they are stating that starting at the park opening at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, July 23rd, Cast Members will allow guests to fill the standby line to its capacity, which is the shield just on the outside of the Hall. Once full, the line to Anna and Elsa will be considered closed. Guests who arrive after the line has been filled will be directed to Magic Kingdom Park Support, who will be located on the other side of the Courtyard Carrousel. Each guest will receive a pass with a comeback time on a “first come first serve” basis. The comeback time printed on each ticket will have a 30 minute window in which to return and enter the standby line to see Anna and Elsa. Once a guest has come back to Princess Fairy Tall Hall and enters the line, Disney expects the maximum wait to approximately 30 minutes.
We will fill you in with more information at days end to see if this did happen and if so what future plans are. Stay Tuned!

What better way to spend a night with other Disney obsessed fans than to host a Disney Vacation Planning Party! Not only was the party fun, but preparing for it was a blast! Jenny, a Swept Away Travel Planner and my sister, worked feverishly on building an amazingly huge and beautiful Mickey Mouse head which was made by three hola hoops and plastic table cloth strips. For food, we had Frozen and Minnie Mouse themed cupcakes, Mickey Ears taco dip, and Frozen white chocolate dipped marshmallows dipped in blue sparkle sprinkles! Let's not forget, our beverage was melted snow!
As our guests arrived we placed a sticker on their back (without them seeing it) and it had the name of a Disney themed character written on it. Our guests then had to mingle and ask other guests questions about the character on their back in order to figure out the answer and the first person to figure it out won a $25.00 Disney gift card.
Through the night we had several other raffles for additional gift cards and two amazingly packed baskets with Disney vacation must have items (such as Mickey ears, autograph book and pen, suntan lotion, Passporter's Walt Disney World 2014 book, Disney towels, Mickey Mouse water containers, bandaids and more!) We played a fun Disney trivia game and chatted about out of the box ways to save money while you plan your vacation.
We were also lucky enough to have a very knowledgable representative from Thirty-One on hand to go over her awesome line of bags and some handy packing tips, packing for a flight with children, and creative ideas for carting around your packed bag in the parks with stroller attachments and such.
The night was a success and everyone who came out had something to offer as far as fantastic advice to share with each other which was great! Planning a party like this would be beneficial to families traveling within the next year or so. Please reach out to a Swept Away Travel Planner for more information on a Vacation Planning Party for any type of vacation you are looking to plan.
In preparation for Disneyland's 60th anniversary next year, they have announced Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration which will begin spring of 2015 where they will honor Disney history and celebrate the magical experiences with today's guests for years to come! Stay tuned for more information!

Dreaming of laying on a beautiful beach hearing the waves crash against the sand somewhere far away with a drink in your hand, but have a little one or a "Bunch" of little ones to travel with? There is still hope for you yet! Beaches All-inclusive Turks and Caicos offers something not just for you and hubby but for everyone in your ever growing family.
The resort boasts four beautiful villages re-creating the feel and ambience of Italy, France, The Caribbean, and Key West with a 12 mile beach that offers endless fun for everyone! Beaches offers infant care, toddlers program including the ever famous Sesame Street characters, pre-teen programs, even teen programs with a teen disco! They also host a 45,000 square foot water park, yes I said 45,000 square feet! Your kids will love the time on their own and you will love the time off.
Nothing is easier when traveling with family than booking an all-inclusive vacation. I can not even remember how many times my little guy ran up ordering his virgin Pina Colada's and I never had to worry about pulling out my wallet. Kids are hungry all of the time, want to eat a few times before dinner, no big deal, it is already taken care of. Beaches offers more quality inclusions than any other resort including airport transfers which for a family can be extremely stressful worrying about getting everyone to and from the airport on vacation but Beaches makes it all so simple.

There is so much to take advantage of while staying on property during a Universal Orlando Resort vacation. There are a total of four resorts, three deluxe and one value resort.The three deluxe resorts are Loews Royal Pacific, The Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Portofino Bay (all listed in order of pricing least expensive and up). The new Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which just recently opened, is Universal's first ever value resort offering new and exciting family suites. All four of these resorts on Universal property have either walking trails, water taxi's and bus transportation to both parks and CityWalk. You can walk to CityWalk and both of the parks right from any of the resorts which is a fun, great way for saving time and just making the vacation that much more convenient!
Walking to CityWalk from your resort makes for an additional exciting day of shopping, dining, and entertainment to add on top of visiting the parks and there is never an admission fee. CityWalk is known as a 30-acre entertainment complex that is great fun for a family, a night out with friends, or a romantic dinner with a loved one. They host concerts and events all through out the year, as well as offering many nightclubs, restaurants, shops, and cinemas.
One of my favorite perks for staying on property is the Unlimited Express Pass you will receive if you stay in one of the three deluxe resorts (Cabana Bay does not offer this presently ). The Express Pass will maximize your vacation time and get you through the lines straight to the front and you will never wait longer than ten minutes for your favorite participating rides or attractions at both of the parks!
For all of our Harry Potter fans, this is a MUST! For guests staying on property they will receive Early Park Admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter which is an essential factor to making your vacation a success. Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the hottest thing that has happened to Orlando in a long time therefore they are going to be packed for quite some time! Booking one of the new exclusive Harry Potter Vacation Packages will also get you one breakfast per person at the Leaky Caldron in Universal Studios Florida as well as the Three Broomsticks in Universal's Islands of Adventure. Deluxe resort guests will receive priority restaurant seating at participating restaurants at both theme parks as well as first available seating at Universal Orlando and CityWalk restaurants .
There is even more benefits of booking your vacation stay at Universal Orlando Resorts. Ask your Swept Away Travel Planner today for more information and how you can qualify for a Harry Potter gift card to use on your next vacation!
