Published

on

Is there anything more exciting than planning a trip to Disney World? How exciting is it to begin choosing the different parks you want to visit and deciding on where you want to stay while on your vacation? With so many different factors to consider, don’t forget to plan your trip during the best time to visit Disney World.

The best Disney vacation is one that’s relaxing, enjoyable, and fun for the entire family! How will you know when to visit Disney World? 

There are a few different factors to consider before selecting your dates. The best time to visit will depend on multiple things, such as your own personal preferences and so much more. 

In the guide below, you’ll discover several things to keep in mind when choosing the right time to visit. Continue reading to get started!

Consider What You Want to Do

The best time to visit Disney might not depend on the weather or crowds. It might depend on what you want to do and see. For example, there are many different parks and events offered by Disney. 

If you want to add the water parks to your ticket option, then you’ll need to visit Disney during the warmer months when the water parks are open. Is there a specific event you want to attend? Disney hosts Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival, Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Mery Christmas Party, and much more.

Be sure to know what all the different events are and when they’re happening if there’s something specific you want to do while there. 

Special Tip: Purchasing tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in late September gives you access to the park later in the day, but you still have enough time to see and do most of the daily activities. These tickets are also cheaper than a regular day ticket, you get to stay later, and the park is usually not as crowded. Another bonus is all the yummy candy you’ll receive while trick-or-treating around the park!

Look for Discounts and Ticket Offers

If you’re a Florida resident, then you’re in luck! Disney World often gives out some amazing deals to Florida residents, which include vacation packages. You may be able to score a great price on tickets and hotel accommodations depending on the offer. 

The cost of DVC (Disney Vacation Club) might also be something worth looking into if you visit Disney on a more frequent basis. You could even end up saving money by buying into DVC. 

Something else to consider is the discount associated with military personnel and AAA members. Be sure to ask Disney what all discounts they offer to see if you qualify for any of them. 

If you find a good ticket offer for a certain event or time of the year, then this might be the perfect time to plan a Disney vacation.

Research the Weather 

When planning your visit, don’t forget to research the weather as well. In Florida, you’ll want to plan around a time when there won’t be too much rain or thunderstorms, but you also want to take the heat into consideration as well. Disney World theme parks can get extremely hot when visiting in the summer. 

The summer will also be more crowded due to children being out of school. Always check the weather before deciding when to plan your trip and factor in what parks you’ll be visiting. If visiting water parks is on your list, then the heat might not play as big of a role in your decision. 

Try to Avoid the Busiest Times

If you can avoid the busiest times of the year, then it’s best to do so. However, this sometimes can’t be avoided if there’s an event you want to attend. For example, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a lovely event that brings holiday cheer into everyone’s heart.

Many visitors love attending this event and seeing all the beautiful decorations. Unfortunately, Christmas time is one of the busiest times of the year for Disney. This must be taken into consideration when planning your visit. 

If you want to visit only to see the decorations, watch the parade, and take part in only the holiday activities, then it might not be too stressful. If you want to go and see the entire park, then you must keep in mind wait times will be higher than normal. 

Summers are also busy times for Disney. The slowest time of the year is in September after Labor Day. All the children are back in school and the parks are not as crowded.

Plan Your Visit by Month

There are a few months throughout the year that offer a wonderful time to go to Disney. Here are some months to consider.

January: By the time January rolls around, most of the Christmas crowds have cleared out. The weather’s nice and the parks are less crowded. 

March: Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival takes place in March. The weather is still nice, but be sure to visit earlier in the month before spring break hits.

May: Moderate crowds when avoiding Memorial Day weekend. May also offers the annual 24-hour party that takes place in Magic Kingdom.

These are a few months to consider when planning your trip to Disney if you want to avoid hot weather and crowded parks.

The Best Time to Visit Disney World Depends on Your Specific Needs

When’s the best time to visit Disney World? This answer will depend on your own specific desires. Is there a certain event you want to attend, a park you want to visit, or a discount you’re waiting for? 

Use all of these factors to then decide on the best time to plan a Disney vacation for your family. For more topics on travel, destinations, guides, and more, be sure to check back here on a frequent basis.

A UK Bar Pretends To Be A Church To Get Around Pandemic Rules

Published

on

The pandemic has made it difficult for some businesses to run, which is why this bar is getting creative by registering as a church to their customers

With everyone being in lockdown and not being able to go out, not a lot people have been able to offer up prayers to the 400 rabbit gods, and with 2020 being the hot mess that it is, a tequila joint in Nottingham, England is planning to change that and keep their business afloat, as well. 

England just got out of its second nation-wide lockdown as of December 2, and now implements a system where they have tiered restrictions. Nottingham currently sits on the highest risk, the tier 3 category, which states that businesses targeted towards hospitality will stay closed with the exception of delivery or takeout.

Church of 400 Rabbits is an Aztec-themed bar that has an extensive choice of tequila and an application to become a worship center that is currently waiting for approval from Nottingham’s registrar general.

This bar decided to mix spirits with spirituality in hopes that it can implement a loophole in the COVID-19 rules of England, which says that if you’re a church or a place of worship, groups from the same bubble or household can enter your business. 

After posting their application that will certify their bar to operate as a place of worship, Church of 400 Rabbits is now looking for devotees through their website.

People who are interested in becoming a Bunny Believer can do this for free, and with a small fee of $13, (£10), you can be ordained as a Reverend, with a t-shirt that you use as your official robes. 

James Aspell, owner of Church of 400 Rabbits isn’t too hopeful that Nottingham will consider the application, but says that it’s an attempt to show how ridiculous the tier system is and how some of the rules are contradictory.

He says that it’s difficult because the government insists on these strict rules but that there is little to no financial support. Aspell believes that even if they moved down to a tier 2, they wouldn’t be able to open without dishing out substantial meals, and adding that it’s another Scotch Egg debacle. 

For those of you that don’t know what a Scotch egg is, it’s a hard-boiled egg that is wrapped with sausage meat and breadcrumbs. After a lot of debate, it has been considered a substantial meal by Michael Gove, who came under fire when he described it as an appetizer. 

Church of 400 Rabbits isn’t the first business that tried to apply as a place of worship, as Atlantic Squash and Fitness Club also rebranded to Church of the Healthy Body to keep their gym open.

Aspell notes that the number of devotees for 400 Rabbits is multiplying rapidly, as rabbits would and has decided to donate all proceeds to a Nottingham homeless charity group.

Why You Might Want To Reconsider That Upcoming Trip To Jamaica

If you were planning to go to Jamaica for your next family vacation, you might want to reconsider. 

Published

If you were planning to go to Jamaica for your next family vacation, you might want to reconsider. The U.S., along with several other countries, have issued travel warnings for the famously easygoing country. This was due in large part to a recent spike in violent crimes. Most recently, and Canadian couple was murdered while vacationing in St. Thomas.

Much of the recent crime has been tied to drug trafficking and various gangs. The numbers are staggering. In 2016 alone, there were 448 aggravated assaults, 481 rapes, 1,215 shootings, and 1,350 murders. This according to the stats reported by The U.S. State Department. These frightening numbers have led local authorities to issue a state of emergency. They have also implemented a temporary curfew and increase the military presence in the more dangerous areas. The travel advisory issued by the State Department on January 10 also applies to the areas of Montego Bay, Spanish Town, and Kingston.

Other countries that have issued similar travel warnings include Canada and The U.K. They also warned their travelers to avoid similar areas with higher crime rates, and to especially be extra careful when walking around at night. The U.K. warning also included instructions to stay within their resort as much as possible, and to only use the transportation provided by their resort or by the airport.

Naturally, Jamaica is worried about the economic effect these travel warnings have, as tourism brings in a great deal of money for them. They have assured travelers that it is still a safe vacation destination, thanks to the measures they have taken to combat the spike in crime.

In an interview with The Independent, Jamaica’s minister of tourism, Edmund Bartlett said, “All members of the tourism fraternity have given their full support to the [increased security] measures and are feeling that these actions are welcome to ensure the safety of Jamaica’s guests and citizens.”

It sounds like they’re doing their best to keep everyone safe, but I’d be lying if I said I’d be nervous to visit the country right now. But I will definitely be keeping an eye on Jamaica and how they handle the crime rate moving forward. Hopefully, they’re able to bring it down in the very near future.

Disneyland Attractions That Have Been Lost In Time

Many Disneyland attractions have survived since it first opened in 1955, but others have come and gone. 

Published

Disneyland has brought joy to children and adults alike since it first opened in 1955. Many attractions have survived since the beginning, but others have come and gone. Here are some of the most memorable Disneyland attractions that have been lost but not forgotten. 

MIDGET AUTOPIA

This attraction only existed in Disneyland from 1957-1966. It featured miniature cars that traveled along a permanent path. The driver could control the speed using gas and brake pedals, but the steering wheel was not functional. It eventually was removed to make room for “It’s A Small World,” but it lived on for another ten years in Marceline, Missouri, the birthplace of Walt Disney himself.

 

COUNTRY BEAR JAMBOREE

One of the more classic attractions on this list, The Country Bear Jamboree survived from 1972-2001. It featured animatronic bears (and a few other forest creatures) that would perform pre-recorded songs. It was eventually removed and was replaced by “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.” 

ADVENTURES THRU INNER SPACE

An attraction ahead of its time, Adventures Thru Inner Space was a part of “Tomorrowland” and took guests on a magical tour through the atoms of a snowflake. It used an “omnimover” system that is still used in many rides to this day. It was eventually replaced by “Star Tours” in 1985.

FLYING SAUCERS

The Flying Saucers were a popular attraction within “Tomorrowland,” although they only existed from 1961-1966. Guests would sit on single-rider “saucers” that would move around in a fashion similar to how an air hockey puck moves. It also had a very exciting bumper cars element as riders could slam into each other. 

 

MONSANTO HOUSE OF THE FUTURE

Another attraction involved in the early days of “Tomorrowland,” The Monsanto House of the Future served as a glimpse into what a future house might look like. Complete with futuristic appliances. It lasted in the park from 1957-1967 and was the joint brainchild of Monsanto, M.I.T., and Walt Disney Imagineering. 

 

MINE TRAIN THROUGH NATURE’S WONDERLAND

The Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland was a ride enjoyed by Disneyland guests from 1960-1977. It served as a tour of the fictional town of Rainbow Ridge and featured multiple waterfalls over a thousand animatronic elements. It was eventually replaced by “Big Thunder Mountain.” 

 

THE PEOPLE MOVER

The aptly named “People Mover” did just that – it moved people! Another element of “Tomorrowland,” it ran from 1967-1995. It was a roughly 16-minute ride and provided riders with a scenic tour of Tomorrowland as a whole. It later served as a tour of the “World of Tron,” an attraction built in partnership with the release of the hit movie. 

 

CHICKEN OF THE SEA PIRATE SHIP AND RESTAURANT

This incredible attraction was a staple of Disneyland from 1955-1982. It featured an extensive, tuna-specific menu and was a joint venture with the tuna company, Chicken of the Sea. The company eventually removed their sponsorship and the beautiful pirate ship was turned into “Captain Hook’s Gallery” in 1969.
