The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort reopened to members on July 11, 2022. There was some confusion as we weren't able to go when we originally planned at 6pm. Currently, they are running a paid reservation package until August 11, 2022 (it may be extended). The “Wicked Wind Down” package is priced at $55 per person and includes a cocktail, an appetizer, and a special “sinfully sweet treat
We headed out to Magic Kingdom the evening of Friday, July 15th. Our plan was to go to the Top of the World Lounge before Magic Kingdom but that did not happen, so we put our names on the waitlist and hoped to be called. However, we had an amazing time at Magic Kingdom even catching the fireworks while on Big Thunder Mountain AND Splash Mountain.
On July 14th, we attended the Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This was our first Moonlight Magic event since before the shutdown. #dvcmember #moonlightmagic #disneyvacationclub
Today, we disembark the Disney Wish and I got to meet Jodi Benson (voice of Ariel in "The Little Mermaid") in the Grand Hall. All in all, it took about 20 minutes, a little longer than what we have experience perviously, but not bad at all. We got to Disney's Pop Century Resort at 11am. Our room was not ready (check-in is at 3pm), but I swung by the front desk and they said they could get me in a room right away, but it would not be our requested area. That was fine by me, be
So everything must come to an end, and this includes our 3-night cruise on the new Disney Wish. We conclude our last night with a Captain Mickey Makeover (https://youtu.be/GGCPhLRt1Rw) and dinner at 1923. We then visited Hyperspace Lounge, The Rose & Nightingale's and were treated to a surprise dress rehearsal of "The Little Mermaid". And then we had the most magical, perfect ending to this trip. We picked up Rider at the Oceaneer Club just before midnight. As we walked int
Do you think the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is just for princesses? Well think again! Not only do they makeover knights and pirates in addition to princesses, but starting with the Disney Wish, children can now be transformed into Captain Mickey or Captain Minnie. As soon as I saw this as an offering, I knew I wanted to have Rider do this (whether he liked it or not). In fact, he really wasn't interested in doing it at all, but I pulled the "it's mommy's birthday" card and sig
Our last day, our port was Castaway Cay and it also happened to be my 46th birthday. We didn't plan to spend much time on the island because we really wanted to enjoy the new ship. We also hoped to ride the AquaMouse a few times without much of a wait. That plan backfired on us a bit (I will explain in more detail in my recap. The weather at Castaway Cay was absolute perfection. It stormed during both of our prior visits, so this was wonderful. Rider loved the slide in the w
Night 2 was also Pirate Night on the Disney Wish. This was so much fun. The new Pirate Parlay Party was amazing and so were the fireworks. We also did a little shopping. Unfortunately, much of the Disney Wish merchandise sold out the first night, but I was able to purchase a few things for an upcoming giveaway.
