DVC announces Disneyland perks

The Disney Vacation Club has announced a list of perks for DVC members visiting Disneyland. The perks cover various admission, dining and shopping purchases. It also does not appear that you must be staying at a Disney resort on DVC points in order to reap the benefits.

The park admission benefits give DVC members and members of their immediate family residing in the same household a $20 discount on Deluxe or Premium Annual Passports. This basically allows members to get a new Annual Pass for the cost of an AP renewal. There is no discount on AP renewals. (The family eligibility requirements parallel those for discounts on Walt Disney World APs.)

Benefits also include discounts on food at two locations inside Disneyland Park, four locations in Disney's California Adventure and 11 locations in Downtown Disney. Shopping discounts are available at 14 locations in Downtown Disney, and admissions discounts are available for adults at the AMC Theatres complex in Downtown Disney.

In addition, those who take advantage of the Annual Passport discounts can also reap the benefits of Passholder discounts. Please note that all adults must show valid driver's license or government ID to prove same-household status for the Annual Passport discount.

These perks are available now, and no end date has been announced. Members must show their membership card to take advantage of any of these discounts. See the Disney Vacation Club members-only site (link) for details.

New Goodings opens on 192

Those that purchase groceries during their Walt Disney World vacations might be interested to find that Goodings has opened a new store at Water Tower Place in Celebration. The shopping center is at the corner of Celebration Avenue and Irlo Bronson Hwy (SR-192). Reportedly, they are planning to match Publix prices. The new store is open 24 hours a day and has a food court. The liquor department closes at 2 a.m.

Disney announces Podcasts

Disney has added a number of podcasts to their Web site for those interested in audio file content from Disney, ABC News and ESPN that are downloadable to portable MP3 players, such as the Apple iPod. There are many programs that allow you to subscribe to these podcasts, which will download new shows automatically as they are posted to the Internet.

The Disney-branded podcasts (link) currently include “Disney Insider” (similar to the current Disney Insider e-mail newsletter), “Gears Behind the Ears” (an audio version of shows available through Disney Motion) and “Last Minute Book Reports” (a “witty and fun narration of classic novels for kids”). Future Disney-branded content will include “Radio Disney Music News” and “Walt Disney Parks and Resorts,” which will reportedly include “Insider information on Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, including behind-the-scenes information and news regarding special events.” The podcasts are also available through the iTunes Podcast Directory.

Disneyland's 50th brings special commemorative T-shirts to WDW

As with many special events in the past, guests at Walt Disney World can purchase a special limited-edition T-shirt on July 17, 2005. With a logo featuring Mickey Mouse and the castles of Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the shirt says “Celebrating 50 Years of Disney Theme Park Magic” at the top and “Walt Disney World Resort salutes Disneyland Resort, July 17, 1955–July 17, 2005” at the bottom.

The shirt are available while supplies last, beginning July 16 at the primary gift store at all four theme parks and at several (but not all) resorts, as well as the Disney merchandise locations at the Orlando International Airport. The shirt costs $19 for adult sizes (S/M, L/XL, and 2XL) and $17 for youth sizes (S/M, L/XL).

For the first time, the shirts are also available through the Disney Gallery web site (link), through July 18. Supplies are limited and will be available on a first come, first-served basis.

Disney has also re-themed the annual Disney's 10K Classic race, scheduled for October 9, as “Disney's Race for the Taste 10K” to match the Food & Wine Festival. The name also echoes the name of the previous day's race, the Susan G. Komen Central Florida Race for the Cure 5K.

Mike Scopa's tips

Mike is currently at Walt Disney World, and passes along these tidbits:

On annual passholder discounted room rates – When checking in for a stay using the Annual Passholder discount rate, front desk staff are not only checking for valid Annual Passes, but are actually writing down pass numbers.

On dining – Despite the sizable crowds at the parks, there are apparently no difficulties with walk-ins lately at table service restaurants. Everybody must be too busy standing in line for attractions.

The Disney Dining Experience discount can apparently be used at food courts and counter service locations when table-service is not nearby.

On transportation – They've been pushing people to use the park-to-park bus routes, rather than having them return to their resorts.

Disney's Magical Express appears to have eased the parking situation at Pop Century, as there are a number of available spots despite the resort being at 100 percent capacity.

On Extra Magic Hours – When visiting evening Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom, the first half of the event has been packed, while the second half is much better.

Visit the park with evening EMH the next morning. Everyone who visited for Extra Magic Hours will likely not be returning, and the mornings are light to begin with.

Evening Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom are pretty cool. The place looks nice lit up at night.

World Showcase is completely closed during Epcot Extra Magic Hours. (Note: We have heard from another source, however, that for this week only, many restaurants around the World Showcase will remain open later to allow guests more dining choices during the Extra Magic Hours.)

Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show – Fastpass tickets are independent from the rest of the Fastpass system. You can grab a stunt show Fastpass and then immediately get another Fastpass for a different attraction. The best time to see Lights, Motors, Action is the first show of the day (1:00). The 3:00 and 5:00 shows are more likely to be delayed or cancelled by inclement weather.

On Expedition: Everest – Mike has heard a rumor from The Unofficial Guide's Bob Sehlinger that there may be a delay in getting Expedition: Everest open due to possible theme park safety legislation.

Soarin' goes to 55-minute waits almost immediately upon park opening. By mid-afternoon, Fastpasses on Soarin' are running 7 hours away, with return times around 8:00 p.m. for Fastpasses received at 1:00 p.m. The line is running to almost an hour even right before park closing.

Illuminations has added a few lighting effects.

WDW again top RV-friendly attraction in U.S.

Walt Disney World Resort recently received the Welcome Mat Award as the No. 1 “RV Friendly” tourist attraction for 2005 from the Good Sam Club, the world's largest membership organization of RV owners. Good Sam introduced the Welcome Mat Award four years ago to recognize businesses that offer top service to RV enthusiasts. This is the fourth year Walt Disney World Resort has received the Welcome Mat Award. This year, Walt Disney World also tied for best golf course with Pinehurst in North Carolina.

Lilliput Lane Cinderella Castle signing event to feature Ray Day

For three days later this month, Lilliput Lane artist Ray Day will be at Walt Disney World to sign the new Cinderella Castle sculpture, featuring its Happiest Celebration on Earth decor. The 9-inch-tall sculptures are a limited edition of 500, and will cost $235. Day will be at Downtown Disney Marketplace on Friday, July 22, at Epcot on Saturday, July 23, and Magic Kingdom on Sunday, July 24. For more information, check out the Disney Gallery web site (link).

Ears to the ground

…A small fire on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad last Tuesday reportedly caused a moment of excitement for some riders. The fire apparently was located at a block zone stop point. When the fire caused an emergency stop, one train was stopped right at the fire. There were no reported injuries, all were evacuated safely, the fire was quickly extinguished and the ride resumed operating later that day.

…The “Guide to Magic” handouts distributed at Disney resorts are now containing monthly information, rather than weekly. The flyers list Extra Magic Hours, but no longer include park hours. Resort staff now hand out a separate flyer with park hours.

…The added attractions for Evening Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom that we reported last week continue to be part of the EMH for a few more weeks. In addition, for this week only, Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress, Liberty Square Riverboat, Hall of Presidents and Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management have been added for the peak crowds.

…NASA has now officially set a launch date of July 13 for the return to space with space shuttle Discovery. For those who wish to include the launch in their vacation plans, remember that everything is subject to weather and technical delays and the launch may or may not happen on that date. The launch window runs through the end of July.

…The ESPN Great Outdoor Games takes place this Thursday through Sunday at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex for broadcast July 13-17 on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC Sports.
