    Katman1356...Jason got a reaction from mmfancipher in Fort reservations   
    Oh and even if you use a travel agent such as myself you still have control, we just do the tedious work of sitting on the phone with Disney for you. Yes any changes or payments have to go through us after we book for you but we work for you. At least I do. I try to respond to all of my clients in as quick of a timeframe as possible.

    I think some of the TAs have a large amount of staff members that all start booking sites as soon as they open.
     
    So they do scoop up a bunch of reservations as soon as they can.
     
    I'm sure if Jason can get that lazy cat of his trained to use a PC, he could book more sites...

    I do object to the wording of giving all the sites to travel agents. Speaking on a personal level I work friggin hard to get my clients the sites they ask for on the first day of availability and throughout the year. Not a single thing has been "given" to me. 

    The problem is the popularity of the Fort combined with, in some cases, the min/max booking system.

    I am actually hoping to take advantage of the sell off that will inevitably happen when people get to go back to their normal vacations.

    When IOS updates it sometimes requires that Supergeek update the app to be compatibility and until he does and it is verified it is removed from the store.

    2021 Walt Disney World tickets are now on sale for use dates out to Sept 26, 2021. 

    If you need tickets for a trip already booked for 2021 please consider purchasing through me. It does not cost you and more than buying them directly but I do get to make a little money off of them. 

    Thanks

    Katman1356...Jason got a reaction from BradyBzLyn...Mo in Additional info 7/8...Information and dates for new park entry and 2021 bookings released by Walt Disney World   
    2020 tickets and reservations back on sale tomorrow. 

     
    Direct from Walt Disney World. 2020 tickets and reservations back on sale. If you have something you are looking for for tickets or reservations at the select hotels that have reopened for 2020 dates let me know. I am happy to help!
    [email protected]
    Magic is here! In just a few more days, we’ll begin welcoming the first guests back to the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort, starting July 11 with Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and followed July 15 by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’re continuing to prepare for these openings in a measured and deliberate way, implementing health and safety measures with cast members and guests in mind.
    As you may recall, earlier we had temporarily paused 2020 ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings so we could focus on helping existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders plan their visits with the new Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system. We are glad to share that tomorrow, July 9, we are resuming Disney Resort hotel bookings, packages and ticket sales for 2020. In preparation, our booking systems will be unavailable overnight, beginning at approximately midnight Eastern this evening. When systems come back online in the morning, you’ll be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system, which we are using to help manage attendance.
    All guests with valid admission are required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry, so be sure to have your guests check the park reservation availability calendar before purchasing any new tickets. Guests should then go to www.StartYourDisneyExperience.com (www.CommencezVotreExperienceDisney.com in Quebec) after purchase to link their tickets and make park reservations. Reservations are limited and subject to availability.
    When adding theme park tickets to a new 2020 package, your clients will now have the option of choosing tickets for 2 to 7 days in length. Certain ticket and package options, such as the Park Hopper option, Minnie Van Airport Service and Disney Dining Plan packages, are currently unavailable.
    A new digital flyer and Facebook graphic will be available tomorrow in DisneyCopyright.com.
    Please note that, during this phased reopening, some tickets, ticket options and Disney Resort hotels are unavailable, but there are still a variety of options to choose from.
    Though the experience may be different than the last time your clients visited, there is so much to look forward to, with many favorite attractions and dozens of entertainment offerings available across all four theme parks, including special new character cavalcades and the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.
    When planning a visit for this year, we recommend checking out our “Know Before You Go” page on the Walt Disney World microsite, which features tips and information, including how to make park reservations after purchasing tickets.
    We realize that everyone’s situation is unique, so if you have specific questions about upcoming plans, please call the Disney Reservation Center.

    Katman1356...Jason got a reaction from BradyBzLyn...Mo in Has anybody booked Fall 2021 yet?   
    Currently they have only reopened booking up to a check out of Sept 27, 2021. No word on when the rest will be released. As of when things went down we could only get to Mid-November under the new rules that went into place last year. Instead of 499 days to when you check out, it is now 500 days to when you check in plus 30 additional days. I am closely watching for when things come back so I can get clients booked as soon as it opens.

    Katman1356...Jason reacted to ThemeParkCommando in Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Getting rethemed to Princess and the Frog   
    While I love the current Splash Mountain theming, I am ok with this change.  Most kids today have never seen or heard of Uncle Remus and the Brer Rabbit stories, and cannot connect.   Like Mr. Toad,  Uncle Remus' time has passed.  The Princess and the Frog also has great songs, and I'm hoping to be able hear 'Gonna to take you there" with Raymond.  I got so attached to that bug.

    Katman1356...Jason got a reaction from fladogfan aka Gretchen in Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Getting rethemed to Princess and the Frog   
    From an email to travel agents but I believe it is circulating elsewhere as well.   I don't mind this idea. Princess and the Frog are a favorite movie and I think Splash Mountain lends itself to retheming to this. 

    Today we are thrilled to share a first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.

    Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new “land” added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of “The Princess and the Frog” to our parks.

    The voice of Princess Tiana and Tony Award-winning actress, Anika Noni Rose, shared, “It is really exciting to know that Princess Tiana’s presence in both Disneyland and Magic Kingdom will finally be fully realized! As passionate as I am about what we created, I know the fans are going to be over the moon. The Imagineers are giving us ‘The Princess and the Frog’ Mardi Gras celebration we’ve been waiting for, and I’m here for it!”

    The approach to retheming or “plussing” attractions (as Walt Disney referred to it) begins with Imagineers asking the question, how can we build upon or elevate the experience and tell a fresh, relevant story? It’s a continuous process that Imagineers are deeply passionate about. And with this longstanding history of updating attractions and adding new magic, the retheming of Splash Mountain is of particular importance today. The new concept is inclusive – one that all of our guests can connect with and be inspired by, and it speaks to the diversity of the millions of people who visit our parks each year.

    Charita Carter, the senior creative producer leading the project at Walt Disney Imagineering shared, “Like Princess Tiana, I believe that courage and love are the key ingredients for wonderful adventures. I am delighted to be a part of bringing this fun-filled experience to our guests.”

    For Imagineers, change is rooted in a tradition set by Walt Disney who encouraged new innovations, new ideas, new scenes and current storytelling. And the experiences they create can be enjoyed by guests who visit our parks from all over the world.

    As part of the creative development process, conceptual design work is well underway and Imagineers will soon be able to conduct preliminary reviews and develop a timeline for when the transformation can start to take shape.

    Stay tuned for more!

    Just wanted to remind everyone Disney has opened booking out to 9/26/2021. They have no opened further than that for room only bookings like in the past. If you are thinking about a trip in 2021 let me help you get it locked down.

    Katman1356...Jason got a reaction from caveat lector in Additional info 7/8...Information and dates for new park entry and 2021 bookings released by Walt Disney World   
    The three day limit is for those with out onsite or good neighbor hotels (havent seen a specific list of those, Four Seasons, Swan and Dolphin, Disney Springs are all ones I do know) 

    Some AP holders with onsite reservations were having issues with only allowing 3 days but that seems to have been corrected to allow for length of stay up to 14 days to now be booked. 

    As far as I know that 3 days limit is until you use a day then you can make another. I could be wrong on that but I do not know. Word is though for AP with out a resort they are going to be releasing additional Park Pass availability. Havent seen that direct from Disney though so don't hold me to it. 

    And in case anyone hasnt seen this yet here is the Park Pass availability calendar you can check out before booking things. To see availability right now be sure to click on Disney Resort Guests until the other options open up.

    As of now no change in the prices and I have not heard anything so far about them being reduced.
    however it is important to note also tickets and new reservations do not have a date for resuming sales as of now. It will depend on availability and may happen later this summer.
