    Garden Rocks Concert Series

    Hi April/May Disney'ers. The Concert Series line up has been released. April 27, 28, 29 and 30: The Orchestra starring former members of ELO May 1, 2, 3 and 4: Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone For those new to Disney: During the Flower and Garden Festival in Epcot a music concert takes place everyday at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM, 8 PM. It is free with park admission. There is also a dining package available which guarantees you seat at the concert. But, I do believe that if you line up early enough, you will get a seat. We may do a breakfast package since that would be the cheapest option. My hubby and I are so excited to see ELO and Herman's Hermits!!!

    Required educational program and FP's

    Hi Jana, You'll be placed in a mixed-aged family group - thanks for reminding me that I needed to set that up! It will be at 3:15 pm. I'll add that to my website. Warmly, Dianna

    Required educational program and FP's

    Hi Dianna, I have four children - grades 7, 6, 4 and 1. May we can be grouped together for the educational program on April 30? Or is it necessary to split up and come for the 9:30 Elementary program as well as the 11:15 Middle School?

  7. Officially, no, but one family told me they were able to do it, so I think it depends on the cast member you talk to. No guarantee, though. Warmly, Dianna
  8. Hello - I see that one can't use an annual pass or add extra days to the event tickets but do you know if they'll allow the tickets to be upgraded to an annual pass at the end of the visit? We're buying the Premiere Passes next year for the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and just looking at options.

    Universal Spring 2019 - FAQs

    Jessica, I found out that Early Admission is tied to your resort stay, so you'll get Early Admission through your hotel room key, even with our tickets. Enjoy! Warmly, Dianna

    Universal Spring 2019 - FAQs

    Hi Jessica, I think the early admission perks are tied to staying on site, not the tickets, but I'll double-check to make sure and post here. Warmly, Dianna

    If we book a resort and use these tickets, will we still get the early admission perks of staying on site?

    Disney Parks - Parking fee increase - $25

    Kristy, Disney transportation probably won't be running that early. After you check in, go to guest services and see what they suggest. Sometimes there will be an early bus for people who make early breakfast reservations in the parks. Otherwise, you'll probably have to drive or get an Uber or Lyft. Warmly, Dianna

    Disney Parks - Parking fee increase - $25

    Could give me some advice on how much time I should need for arriving on time to the Sci-Fi Dine-In & Toy Story Mania breakfast? I plan to drive to the park from our resort. I see that means we will need to use the ferry or monorail. Thanks!

    Disney 2019 - April/May or November?

    What a wonderful gift! I'll probably open registrations for my November trip in March or April, or I may wait until I get back from my spring Disney trip (depends on how hectic things are). Payment is due within 7 days of my confirmation of your registration, so just wait to register until you have your payment ready. Warmly, Dianna

  23. Our Hoop Dee Doo spots have been confirmed for Sunday, April 28, at 6:15 pm. I've added it to the registration form, but email me if you want to add it to an existing registration. Warmly, Dianna
  24. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/philadelphia/ Is the price per family, or per person? The prices are per family, not per person. Is this trip full? How do I get on the waiting list? We're at our max for this trip, but may have cancellations. To get on the waiting list, please submit a registration form as you normally would. You'll have to pay a $250 per-person non-refundable deposit to confirm your spots on the waiting list. (I'll send you an email with payment information after I receive your registration.) If spots come available, your deposit will be applied to your total. If spots don't come available by May 31, 2019, your deposit will be refunded in full. If you decide not to go after being offered spots, your deposit will not be refunded. So, in other words, make sure you really do want to go before registering. I live in the area - can I join your group for the day? We have a limited number of tour spots, so they're reserved for my group. Can we opt out of the hotel, specific tours, etc.? We need to maintain minimums to qualify for group discounts. Since I'm contracted to pay for a minimum number of hotel rooms to get the cheaper rates, you can't opt out of the hotel. You can opt out of any tour on the itinerary, but you won't receive a refund for any missed tours/events. What hotel will we be using? What type of hotel is it? I'll share hotel information, itinerary, etc., closer to our travel dates in case there are unexpected changes. All of the hotels I partner with are mid-range (for price and value), highly rated, family-friendly, in good areas of town, and near restaurants. I have a family of 7, 8, 9, etc., and have very young children. Can we all share one room? The hotel I use allows up to 6 per room (with smaller children using the sofabed). If you have more than that, you'll have to get another room. This trip is limited to ages 8 and up due to the history focus and heavy walking. I have a family of 7 or 8 or more. What's the price? If you have a larger family, combine the price for a party of 3 and a party of 4 if you have 7, or double the price for a party of 4 if you have 8, etc. I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? This trip is limited to ages 8 and up, and everyone counts in the price. Should people with mobility issues go on this trip. Due to the heavy walking associated with this trip and logistical issues with using the subway and buses, I don't recommend this trip for anyone with mobility problems. Have any other questions? Please reply in this thread and I'll answer and add it to the list!

    Boston 2019 - FAQs

    Disney Parks - Parking fee increase - $25

    Hi Tracy - they'll scan your magic bands as you enter the parks and you won't have to pay the parking fee. We like to drive to the parks to cut down on waiting for the bus (to go and come back). It's just a more efficient use of our time. But the buses aren't bad - the bus to Magic Kingdom will drop you off near the entry to the park. But if you drive, you have to park at the Ticket & Transportation Center and take the ferry or monorail in. So that might be a time you want to use Disney Transportation. Warmly, Dianna

    Disney Parks - Parking fee increase - $25

    Hi, Dianna! It's almost time We will have our vehicle & will drive to most parks. Do we use our magic bands as proof that we're staying on-site? Also, from your experience, is it better to ride the bus to any of the parks? I've seen different opinions, but since you've had a lot of experience with Disney, I'd like to hear your advice. Thanks!
