News and Views

Magical Express baggage delivery unavailable during off hours

If you plan to land at Orlando International Airport between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., you should go ahead and pick up your own luggage at baggage claim and bring it with you to the DME bus. In addition, baggage delivery to guest rooms at the Disney resorts now stops at 2:00 a.m., since delivering after 2 a.m. is considered a disservice to guests. You can, however, have your bags delivered from 2:00 to 3:00 if you request.

Note that Magical Express service shuts down completely at 3 a.m., so if your bag does not arrive at the resort by 3 a.m., you will have to wait for your luggage to arrive the next morning after 7:00 a.m. when the service reopens.

Disney's Express not so Magical for cabbies, limo drivers

The free Disney's Magical Express service has proven to be a win-win proposition for both Walt Disney World and guests who plan to stay on property and not leave during their trip. Guests get free transportation to and from the resort, and Disney gets a near-guarantee that the guests (and their money) will not leave the resort. However, this is not a winning proposition for one group: Taxi cab and limo drivers.

Not only has the new service cut far more business from the drivers than the previous pay-for-ride Mears bus service, but the drivers feel that the airport is treating them less than fairly in its rush to accommodate Disney. In a closed-door meeting with airport officials last week, the drivers stated their grievances and asked for fair treatment.

The new service is also apparently cutting into car rentals. Based on an informal survey of the number of available parking slots at this peak season, there are substantially fewer people renting cars to get to Walt Disney Word. Even the Pop Century Resort, noted for its overflowing parking lots, has many open spots.

Alamo introduces online check-in

For those choosing to rent a car from the official car rental company of Walt Disney World instead of using the Disney's Magical Express service, Alamo has introduced a new feature called “Online Check-In.” Regardless of whether the rental reservation was made online, by phone or through a travel agent, customers can now check in for their reservation online and go straight to their car when they arrive at the rental lot.

To use the new online check-in feature, customers provide driver's license information, verify options and provide payment information. Once complete, they print the rental agreement to bring with them. Upon arriving at the rental lot, customers bypass the rental counter and go straight to the row where their vehicle type is parked. Vehicle keys are in the ignition. After choosing a vehicle, customers would just load in their party and their things, and drive to the exit booth.

With the lengthy wait at the rental desk at peak times, the ability to bypass that line looks like it will be a big help to those with impatient children (and impatient adults).

Disney testing new preschool guide at Magic Kingdom

Disney's research team is testing out a new way to help the parents of preschoolers navigate the wilds of the Magic Kingdom this summer. Now in the second month of a summer-long trial, the guide lists preschooler-friendly attractions and gives tips about the Fastpass system, how rider swap works, when to eat, and even theme park etiquette.

Maps are being distributed at City Hall, the Tip Board, the guest relations window, the stroller rental area, the baby care center, and the vacation-planning office. Disney is recommending that parents use the guide in conjunction with the standard park map and the times guide, which are both still available in booklet holders in the tunnels under Main Street Station when entering to the park.

While the criteria used to identify preschooler-friendly attraction is uncertain (The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wise Acre Farm is recommended, while the Enchanted Tiki Room - Under New Management is not), the guides look like they would be a great help to parents of preschoolers that have little or no experience at Walt Disney World.

Two new theme park CDs to debut tomorrow

Tomorrow, Walt Disney Records releases two theme park-focused CDs, new and old. For those who have purchased the six-disc 50th anniversary A Musical History of Disneyland set but do not have the equipment to play the bonus vinyl record included in the set, fear not; tomorrow, you can buy Walt Disney Takes You to Disneyland on CD (buy). In 1956, the album was the first record released by Disneyland Records, which later became Walt Disney Records. Walt Disney narrates a tour through Disneyland, which features music from all lands of the park.

If you'd rather sing along to theme park tunes without having to compete with the original voices, Disney's Carafe Series: Theme Park Favorites (buy) is being released the same day. Featuring songs such as “: Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me),” “There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow,” “it's a small world” and the new Happiest Celebration anthem “Remember When,” the CD also is coded in CD+G format so that it will display lyrics on a screen when using a karaoke machine while still being able to play in a standard CD player, and includes both instrumental and vocal versions of eight songs.

New benefits announced for Disney Visa card holders

A new benefit was introduced last Friday for Disney Visa card holders An exclusive character meet-and-greet with a free 5x7 photo is currently taking place from 1:30-4:30 p.m. at Epcot's Innoventions West. The offer is good for up to six people per card, with one free photo per card holder account. Another new benefit for card holders is a 10 percent discount on purchases of $25 or more at World of Disney at the Downtown Disney Marketplace. Certain merchandise is excluded from this offer.

In addition, card holders can get 20 percent off the price of most theme park tours, and a $50 onboard credit on Disney Cruise Line cruises. All of the offers are valid from last Friday through September 30, 2006. You must ask for these discounts. They will not be applied automatically.

Disney gift cards to become available in August

Next month marks the debut of Disney gift cards at Walt Disney World. Similar to a program already in place at the Disneyland Resort in California, guests can purchase stored-value gift cards valid at select merchandise and food-and-beverage locations throughout Walt Disney World. The cards can be purchased with values from $5 up to $1,500, and can be reloaded with additional value at any time.

Members of our MousePad discussion boards have found the cards very useful at Disneyland for letting their children be in charge of their own souvenir money. However, note that these cards should be treated the same as cash. If lost, the cards cannot be replaced.

Kennedy Space Center to get $160 million upgrade to Visitor Complex

Facing increased competition for tourists, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has announced a $160 million investment in new exhibits, and signage and entranceway improvements. The nine new exhibits include a $60 million thrill attraction simulating a space shuttle launch. The attraction, to open in 2007, will not use the same centrifuge system used in Walt Disney World's Mission: Space attraction in Epcot, but rather will use a more industry-standard motion platform system.

ECV, wheelchair, stroller rental prices go up

Effective yesterday, rental costs have gone up for electric convenience vehicles (ECVs), wheelchairs and strollers. ECV rentals have risen from $30 per day (with $10 key deposit) to $35 per day (with $5 deposit), while wheelchair rentals have risen from $7 per day (with $1 deposit) to $10 per day (with no deposit).

Stroller rentals are also up, though length-of-stay rentals are now available for multiple-day rentals. One-day single stroller rentals are up from $8 to $10 and double stroller rentals have risen from $15 to $18. The new length-of-stay rentals are available at rates of $8 per day for singles and $16 per day for doubles. There are no deposits on stroller rentals.

Ears to the ground

…Walt Disney World Executive Vice President of Operations Lee Cockerell has been named as Orange County's representative on the Volunteer Florida commission on volunteerism. Cockerell already serves as campaign chair for the Heart of Florida United Way.

…Walt Disney World has come out on top of a reader survey by Meeting News, a leading convention industry trade publication as the best upscale property for meetings and conventions.

…It is rumored that a new window on Main Street, U.S.A. will be dedicated on July 18. No word yet on who it will be for.

…Ticket vending machines will be tested at the Contemporary and Pop Century Resorts.

…If you were watching the July 4 fireworks from Boston on CBS last week, you were not hallucinating. The music for the finale was indeed “We Go On” from the finale of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot. And yes, they did slightly edit the last few seconds of the song to reach the crescendo more quickly.

…The special edition of the fireworks for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is now apparently called Happy HalloWishes: Grim Grinning Ghosts Come Out To Socialize.
