Landry’s Select Club for Walt Disney World Park Guests

There is one little membership card that could benefit you big time for your next visit to Walt Disney World. The Landry’s Select Club is a restaurant loyalty program that is good for several restaurants at Walt Disney World. If you are not interested in dining at any of their locations, than no need to read on.

There are currently four Landry’s Restaurants on Walt Disney World Property

  • Rainforest Café – Animal Kingdom Park
  • Yak & Yeti – Animal Kingdom Park
  • Rainforest Café – Disney Springs
  • T-Rex – Disney Springs

Dining at Rainforest Café & T-Rex Café is a wild experience indeed while Yak & Yeti takes a more sophisticated approach with their dining experience.

This animated Alligator greets guests outside of the Rainforest Café in Disney Springs

Being a Landry’ Club Member you will get extra special treatment when you dine at any of their restaurants. That includes more than 600 participating locations; however, for the purposes of this article I will focus on the locations within Walt Disney World. There are several more restaurants in the Orlando area including Bubba Gump Shrimp at Universal’s City Walk and multiple Salt Grass Steakhouses throughout Orlando and many others.

The advantages of being a member:

  • Earn 1 point for every dollar you spend, when you get to 250 points, you get a $25 reward to use in their restaurants
  • Get a $25 reward for your birthday that is good for your birth month & combinable with your membership reward.
  • Priority seating when you arrive at one of their restaurants

What is costs to join: The cost to join is $25 and the membership lasts a lifetime. When you first sign up, you will get a $25 reward that will cover the cost of your membership. So essentially you are getting your money back as long as you plan to dine at a Landry’s restaurant in the near future.

When you register you will get an account number that you can link in the Landry’s app. I have found the app to be the easiest way to keep track of points & rewards, but they will also issue a physical card to you can also give them the phone number you used when you signed up.

Points do expire 12 months from the date they are issued. So if you only visit a Landry’s restaurant once a year, your points may not be valid.

The best value: I have found that the best value in the Landry’s card is when you are celebrating your birthday the same month that you plan to dine in one of the restaurants. This gives you a $25 birthday reward to apply to your check.

Priority Seating is a major benefit. During our recent visit to Rainforest Café they were not taking walk-ins, but we were able to be seated right away because we are Landry’s Members.

If you like to dine at the Landry’s Restaurants, I encourage you to visit their club webpage here & consider joining this beneficial program. Visit this link to join today: https://www.landrysselect.com/club-features/

Halloween After Hours Event Announced for Walt Disney World

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. Bright decorations enter the scene as well as rich seasonal treats & I am all about the food when I travel. For those familiar with visiting Walt Disney World in the fall, you know about Disney’s popular party hosted by none other than Mickey himself. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will not be returning to the Magic Kingdom this year, but I am inspired by the possibilities offered at “Boo Bash”.

Boo Bash will be an after hours event in Magic Kingdom Park. If you aren’t familiar with Disney after hours events, they take place during the 3 hour time span after the park closes and are only open to a limited number of guests who have purchased tickets to attend. These events have fewer people which equals lower wait times at more than 20 attractions.

Boo Bash will include a Halloween twist and guests young & old can dress up for the event. There are specific costume guidelines that you should review before going & only guests younger than 14 can wear costume masks. At this time Disney is saying that the standard face coverings will still be required.

When: Boo Bash will be held from August 10th – October 31st
Where: Magic Kingdom theme Park
Hours: 9pm – 12am; some night in August & September will be from 9:30pm – 12:30am
Tickets: will go on sale in June

For those with a sweet tooth for Halloween candy don’t worry, there will be plenty of deliciousness included.

Some of the activities & entertainment included at the event are:

  • Special décor, lighting, music and more!
  • Attractions, including favorites like Haunted Mansion & Space Mountain
  • Themed food and beverages available for purchase
  • Special performances by the Cadaver Dans
  • Character sightings throughout the park
  • Candy stops
  • Halloween-themed cavalcades

Boo Bash may be the icing on the cake to an already exciting 50th anniversary event at Walt Disney World beginning on October 1st and continuing for an entire year. Will you attend Boo Bash this year?

If you are dreaming of a fall vacation to Walt Disney World, NOW is the time to make your reservations. With the 50th anniversary celebration taking place in early October and limited resorts being open, reservations are filing up fast!

Disney Wish – What we know about the Staterooms & Deck Plans, so far

The grand reveal of the Disney Wish is barely a few days old, but the flurry over choosing the right stateroom on the newest ship in the fleet, is already at an apex. Everyone wants to know more about the rooms and the deck plans so that they can have that perfect room in mind when reservations start to open on May 17th. I understand that need to plan and I am going to share with you what I know so far about the staterooms and deck plans on the Disney Wish.

Disney Wish One of the two story Royal Suites (above) ©DISNEY

Enchantment is the theme of this grand new ship & the story will carry throughout all of the staterooms with beautiful artwork above the main bed & enhanced storage space, something that every family needs. The pull down bed will remain in staterooms that sleep more than three & the murphy bed will be in staterooms that sleep 5. The Disney signature split bath design has carried over to this ship in most of the staterooms. Most staterooms will have queen beds with storage space underneath.

The Disney Wish will be slightly larger in size than the Disney Fantasy & the Disney Dream, but at 6 fewer staterooms it will offer more space dedicated for family fun. There are 1244 total staterooms on the Disney Wish. 902 of the staterooms will be connecting staterooms for larger families and 946 of the staterooms will have verandahs for that perfect view of the ocean. There will be 36 full accessible staterooms onboard and 56 accessible staterooms with communication features.

There are four main types of staterooms onboard.
-Inside staterooms
-Oceanview staterooms
-Verandah staterooms
-Concierge/Suite staterooms.

Inside Staterooms

Being the smallest category of staterooms on the Disney Wish, there are only 121 inside staterooms onboard. Each stateroom will have a queen bed with a convertible sofa and in select staterooms that sleep 4 there will be a pull down upper berth.

Oceanview Staterooms

The Oceanview staterooms will have a portal window that offers lovely views of the ocean. These rooms will sleep up to 5 guests. Rooms that sleep 4 will have an upper pull down berth and rooms that sleep 5 will also include a pull down murphy bed. There are 177 Oceanview staterooms on the Disney Wish.

Verandah Staterooms

Verandah staterooms account of the majority of the staterooms onboard the Wish. At 946 rooms, this is the largest category of staterooms. These rooms also sleep up to 5 guests with an optional pull down upper berth and murphy bed, but they have the added advantage of a private verandah where you can soak up the sun & enjoy room service with your own ocean view.

Disney Wish Verandah Staterooms (above) ©DISNEY

Royal Suites

This brand new class of rooms on the Disney Wish only has 4 total rooms. Two of the Royal Suites will even be 2-story suites with a grand spiral staircase and amazing views of the ocean through floor to ceiling windows. The Royal Suites feature an elegant design and are inspired by the life of Sleeping Beauty. All of the Royal Suites will sleep up to 6 guests and will have 3 full baths.

Disney Wish Two Story Royal Suite (above) ©DISNEY

Concierge Staterooms

There are almost twice as many concierge staterooms on the Disney Wish than the other Disney ships and as a concierge guest you are in for a real treat. You will have access to the private concierge lounge with food & snacks throughout the day, a full bar, private kid’s club and a sundeck with whirlpools, a wading pool with great views on a forward facing deck.

Disney Wish Concierge Stateroom with Verandah (above) ©DISNEY

There are 3 main types of Concierge staterooms on the Disney Wish.
– Concierge family Oceanview stateroom with Verandah – These rooms feature a design inspired by the animated film Tangled.
– Concierge 1-bedroom Suites with Verandah – The artful accommodations in these fabulous suites will also be touched by designs from Tangled.
– Concierge Family Oceanview Staterooms – These staterooms will have amazing forward facing views through floor to ceiling windows. The artful accommodations in these rooms will be focused around none other than The Little Mermaid.

Disney Wish Concierge Oceanview Stateroom (above) ©DISNEY

The Disney Wish has also added suites in a brand new location. They boast of 7 amazing suites located right above the bridge on the forward part of the ship for fantastic views of the ocean. Can you imagine sailing right above the captain & crew of the ship?

Isn’t it gorgeous? With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, including a spacious upper-level loft, the Wish Tower Suite will sleep up to eight guests with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, a library that converts to a bedroom and four-and-a-half bathrooms. The magnificent living room will be flanked by an open dining area and a bar, all offering extraordinary views across the upper decks to the horizon through an expansive two-story window wall.

First Ever Funnel Suite

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It’s calling Guests home to the Wish Tower Suite, a first-of-its-kind accommodation set high in the forward funnel of the Disney Wish.

Deck Plans

I know everybody wants to have an idea of where their room will be on the Wish. Right now there is not a full set of deck plans available, but I have put together deck plans for decks 6 – 13 which is where the staterooms will be located on the Disney Wish. Keep Scrolling ALL the WAY to the bottom to SEE DECK PLANS. Just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling, scrolling, scrolling….

What’s in Store for the Disney Wish when she joins the Disney Cruise Line Fleet in 2022

I’m over the moon excited for all of the amazing new things coming to the Disney Wish and as soon as I watched the the ship reveal I had to create a blog post right away to share with all of you!

Captain Minnie will adorn the helm of the ship & a beautiful Cinderella statue will welcome visitors into the Grand Hall when they board the ship. The Grand Hall will become much more than a simple Atrium, read on for more.

What you see below is not the Aqua Duck found on other Disney Ships, rather it is the first-ever Disney attraction at sea!

This amazing attraction is called the AquaMouse and will take sliders through Port Misadventure into a digital world while winding 760 feet around and above the upper deck. This cinematic adventure will be double the slide time of the AquaDuck at over 2 minutes in length. Who’s going with me???

The spacious upper decks will space for fun in the sun for everyone. There will be 6 pools spaciously staggered among tiered decks. Don’t worry, the soft serve ice cream and quick service bites will remain a part of the deck experience.

The zone in the forward part of the upper decks is a brand new Toy Story themed zone. There will be a Splash Zone with a Toy Story theme, perfect for those little ones who want to splash away with their favorite characters from the big screen. Rex will have his very own slide themed after him & aptly names Slideasaurusrex. If all the play makes you thirsty, there will be a smoothie bar called Wheezies Freezes.

BRAND NEW to the Oceaneer Club (for children ages 3 – 12) there is a ‘secret entrance’ from the Grand Hall. Kids will be able to slide in to all the fun through a special slide just for them.

Inside the Oceaneer Club young recruits will train in the Avengers Academy. There will be special appearances from characters which include Spiderman in the lead. Kids can even choose their own hero suit & put it to the test.

Don’t worry there is something for the princesses & princes onboard too. 😉 At Princess Fairytale Hall there will be art activities with Rupunzel in her art studio & enjoy a good story in Bell’s Library.
Kids can also learn about the secrets behind the magic in the Walt Disney Imagineering Lab. Learn what it takes to create & design all of the Disney Magic in a first of it’s kind interactive lab where designing their own roller coaster & even riding it is only part of the fun.
Broadway style shows are always a hit on Disney Cruise Line and the Walt Disney Theater returns with a new design, new touches and even two new shows that are top secret for now. 😉

For older teens The Edge will be for ages 11 – 14 and Vibe will be fore ages 14-17.

One of the family friendly shows that will take place on this fabulous stage will be Aladdin. Reimagined the Genie will hit the stage once again as a Disney Cruise Line favorite.
Another FIRST for Disney Cruise Line…. Located in the heart of the ship is a stage inside the Grand Hall. Surprise shows will take place in this area throughout the day.
Don’t worry if you are not the right age for the kid’s club. Disney has something very special in store for adults and I am outwardly ecstatic to see these areas!!!!

Wedding Venue in the Grand Hall

Inspired by fairy tales, like Cinderella, the Grand Hall features a magnificent staircase that serves as a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony or vow renewal.

Star Wars fans, get ready…. Hyperspace Lounge will be a dream come true for you. Enjoy drinks while visiting the various planets from the Star Wars films.

Hyperspace Lounge

There will be a brand new adult dining space centered around the Beauty & the Beast theme where three restaurants will show off touches from the popular film & Broadway production. The Rose, Palo and Enchante hosted by none other than Lumiere himself.

Quiet Cove and Senses Spa will continue their presence on the Disney Wish.

Also joining the entertainment line up…
Luna a new entertainment hub that will transform from family fun during the day to elegant entertainment in the evening
Hero Zone will be a futuristic sports arena that will include plenty of competitions & imaginative challenges.
Wonderland and Never Land Cinemas are smaller screening experiences that will offer guests options to watch classic & first run films.

The Disney wish has redesigned their staterooms with beautiful artwork & most rooms will have a view of the ocean. 70% of the 1254 staterooms that will have a spacious verandah.

Updated décor will adorn the Concierge rooms and double the number of concierge staterooms and suites. This includes Disney’s first staterooms located above the bridge with floor to ceiling windows. These rooms will include a private sundeck & lounge.

Four Royal Suites will join the list of accommodations. These suites will sleep up to 6 guests with first-class amenities.

The Disney Wish will feature their first-ever two-story Royal Suites. These rooms will have everything from a spiral staircase to stunning views of the ocean. There are only two of these Royal Suites.

Dining is always an event on every Disney Cruise we have taken; it doesn’t surprise me that the first-ever cruise line built by an entertainment company has some special activities in store for dinner time.

The first of three restaurants includes a show space inside the dining room based on the film Frozen. In Arendelle restaurant you will be entertained by the character from frozen while you eat!

The second of three restaurants is called “1923” All Disney super fans know that this is the year Walt Disney started his studio. The décor & food will be classic California.
Don’t worry Super Hero Fans, Disney has something for you. The third restaurant will be based on Marvel experiences & entertainment. The details are still locked away, but we will be keeping an eye out & sharing more soon.
I know what you are all thinking…

Park Hopper Returns to Walt Disney World Jan 1st 2021

Many of us like having the ability to visit more than one of Disney’s four parks in a single days. With capacity control that has been impossible to do since the parks have reopened. Well… if you have been crossing your fingers & wishing on stars for the return of the Park Hopper option, you’re in luck! Disney will be bringing back the popular option in the New Year!

If you are wondering what Park Hopper is, it is an option hat you can add to your Walt Disney World tickets that allows you to visit more than one of their four theme parks in a single day. With regular/base tickets, you can only visit one park per day.

Want more details? Read on for Disney’s official announcement…

As the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort continues, we are nearing another exciting milestone we know many guests have been looking forward to: the return of the Park Hopper® option! Starting Jan. 1, 2021, guests who purchased a ticket, package or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will be able to visit more than one park per day, with some new modifications as part of our ongoing focus on health and safety.

With the updated Park Hopper® experience, Guests must make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit (reservation requirements are subject to change) AND enter that first park prior to visiting another. Additionally, we will set specific Park Hopper® hours during which this option will be available. Park Hopper® hours will start at 2 p.m. each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. Guests will soon be able to check DisneyWorld.com/ParkHours and the My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date Park Hopper® hours, as they could start earlier at a later date, depending on the day and park.

These modifications are designed to help us manage attendance responsibly to continue to foster physical distancing. Additionally, other enhanced health and safety measures remain in effect, including face coverings required for all guests ages two and up.

As a reminder, guests with a ticket, package or pass that includes Park Hopper® benefits get the chance to see and do more during their visit, which could mean a morning on the savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and an evening stroll by Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park or starting the day living your Star Wars adventure at Disney’s Hollywood Studios before an afternoon traveling around the world at EPCOT. Please note that the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations. And, to help us manage attendance, upon the return of the Park Hopper option in January, only guests with a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – Guests visiting from another theme park will not be able to request to join the virtual queue.

Park-to-park transportation is also planned to resume in 2021, with operations beginning each day shortly prior to the start of Park Hopper® hours.

We look forward to starting the new year with the return of this guest favorite option!

Changes Coming to Disney Gift Card Website

If like me you enjoy collecting Disney gift cards to help pay for magical moments, you will want to take a look at this information that will bring changes to the Disney Gift Card website. (DisneyGiftCard.com)

Disney gift cards are great to add to your gift lists when you are planning a Disney vacation. Many times you can get them at a discounted rate at your local retailers. Right now Target offers 5% off all gift cards when you buy them using your Target Red Card.

We all know that we can accumulate a number of Disney gift cards for a single trip. Combining many cards onto one card is a handy thing that the Disney Gift Card website offers. However, the website is not intended to store your gift cards; you should make sure you always save the originals & a copy of the 16 digit codes & security codes.

Yesterday the website announced that they will be implementing some enhancements on 1/19/2021 that will be available on 1/20/2021. Starting 1/19/2021 you will not be able to login to the website while they are working on it. When the website is available again you will have to create a new login & none of your gift cards that are currently on there will be available. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A RECORD OF YOUR CURRENT GIFT CARDS ON THE WEBSITE.


BELOW are the details from Disney:

DisneyGiftCard.com will be upgraded on January 20, 2021. All existing DisneyGiftCard.com account details (logins and gift cards added) will no longer be available after January 19, 2021. As a reminder, your account is not a mobile wallet and should not be considered as such. Always be sure to keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Card(s) with you as it will be required to make any purchases.

Once live on January 20, 2021, the enhanced site will allow visitors to utilize their existing ‘Disney account’ to login; using the same login credentials across multiple Disney sites and apps including: shopDisney, My Disney Experience, WaltDisneyWorld.com and Disneyland.com.

Prior to the website enhancement on January 20, 2021, please be sure that you take the following steps:

  • Have access to your Disney Gift Card(s), including your full 16-digit account number and EAN to add your card(s) onto the updated website.
  • Starting January 20, 2021, please visit DisneyGiftCard.com to create a new account, or use your existing Disney account login, and enter your gift card(s) information into the My Cards section.

DGC.com Website FAQs

Will my saved cards transfer over to the new site?

No, all existing DisneyGiftCard.com account details (logins and gift cards added) will no longer be available as of January 20, 2021. As a reminder, your account on DisneyGiftCard.com is not a mobile wallet and should not be considered as such. Always be sure to keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Card(s) with you as it will be required to make any purchases.

Where did my saved cards information go?

With the update to the DisneyGiftCard.com website, all current account information will be deleted and no longer be available as of January 20, 2021.

What do I do if I don’t have the card that I have saved on the website?

If you are no longer in possession of your physical or digital Disney Gift Card(s) that are currently on your account, you will need to transfer the balance(s) to a Disney Gift Card that you do have available. Please keep in mind that the total balance allowed on a single card is $1,000. If you don’t have another card to transfer to, please Contact Us and provide the original gift card(s) proof of purchase.

Can I use the updated website to access my cards to use as payment?

DisneyGiftCard.com does not serve as a mobile wallet and should not be considered as such. As a reminder, be sure to keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Card(s) with you as it will be required to make any purchases.

Will this migration affect my card balances?

No, your card balances will remain the same as they are currently. Please note that once the migration to the updated site is completed on January 20, 2021, all information currently stored will be deleted. Disney Gift Card holders will be required to create a new account, or use their existing Disney account login, and enter their gift card information.

Will the card image on the website match the original card?

No, this functionality will not be available.

How do I add cards to the updated website? How do I combine cards on the updated website?

Once the updated site launches, please visit My Cards and follow the on-screen steps to create a new account, or use an existing Disney account login, to add or combine cards in your account.

Will the maximum value per card be increased with this migration?

No, the current total maximum value per card will remain at $1,000.

Will I be able to reload my card on the new website using my debit or credit card?

No, this functionality will not be available.


Disney Gift Cards are currently accepted at:

  • Walt Disney World
  • Disneyland
  • Disney Cruise Line
  • Adventures by Disney
  • Shop Disney
  • Disney Store

Although I’m slightly disappointed that it looks like Disney will not offer any type of mobile wallet with this new enhancement, I’m still excited to see what they will bring to the new website. I think that their overall goal is to get everyone under one Disney login.

Tip: If you are using Disney gift cards to pay for a vacation, always remember to save those gift cards until you return. Any refunds will be processed back onto those gift cards that were used to pay with.
