Disney World and the holidays just got a little bit cheerier, especially for young families looking for a way to light up the winter season with a little Disney Magic. A “Families with Little Ones” vacation package may be just what Santa ordered.
The package runs $999 for a family of three (two adults, one child ages 3 to 9) for a three-night, two-day package that includes two-day theme park tickets, Disney’s Quick-Service Dining Plan and three nights in a standard room at a Disney Value Resort hotel (excluding Disney’s Art of Animation Resort). And it is valid for stays most nights Jan. 5 through Feb. 12, 2014. Children under 3 years old are admitted free to Disney parks every day.
A visit for the cooler months may be a preferred way for parents or grandparents to kick off the year, and enjoy the magic through the eyes of a young-park goer taking in all the action, possibly for the first time.
Some of the highlights perfect for guests traveling to Walt Disney World Resort with little ones include:
In the theme parks: Magic Kingdom New Fantasyland—Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, Princess Fairytale Hall and Enchanted Tales with Belle are some of the new must-do’s for little ones; also Jungle Cruise, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, The Barnstormer. Epcot—The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Turtle Talk with Crush inspire learning and fun. Disney’s Animal Kingdom—Explore Kilimanjaro Safaris, DinoLand U.S.A. and Mickey’s Jammin Jungle Parade; also close encounters with fascinating wildlife at every turn. Disney’s Hollywood Studios—Disney Junior-Live on Stage! and Toy Story Midway Mania! are the perfect fit for younger children.
At the resort hotels: there are themed pools, walking paths and complimentary activities such as Movies Under the Stars. Resort hotels provide a retreat and convenient place near the parks for afternoon naps during a day. And when parents need a night out, Children’s Activity Centers provide supervised childcare for children ages 3-12 years at five convenient Walt Disney World Resort hotel locations. Centers include arts & crafts, video and board games, Disney movies, dinner and activities.
Disney restaurants offer children’s menus, plus crayons and coloring books to keep kids entertained. Character dining—where a cast of characters visits guests’ tables while they eat—is a great way to introduce little ones to Disney characters.
