Let’s be honest – it’s been a tough year and then some. As we feel safe traveling again, I think we deserve to give ourselves a little more. While you’re sure to make Walt Disney World on a tight budget, there are also plenty of opportunities to enjoy it, if you so desire.
Here are 7 ways to add extra pixie powder to your visit that may be worth the extra cost.
- Go Deluxe
Each category of Disney resort has its advantages, but if you are looking for your amenities, exclusive resort activities, location and / or views, it may be worth enjoying a luxury resort. Prices vary greatly depending on the resort and the season, but these resorts are the best of the best in terms of theme, catering and services. If you have one on your deposit list for a while now that you want to try it (for me it’s Grand Floridian), maybe now is the perfect time to take the plunge.
- Royal Cinderella Table
There are plenty of dining options worthy of waking up all over Disney. But this is the only one that takes you to the iconic Cinderella Castle. While the food may be better at some of these other restaurants, here you really pay for the experience. And it’s an experience that all big Disney fans should have once in a lifetime. Advanced dining reservations are required, character food doesn’t currently work (although Cinderella may look socially distanced) and the price is $ 62 per adult and $ 37 per child. The first time I went to Disney when I was 10, my family ate at the Cinderella royal table and I just remember being scared the whole time. The themed decor and attention to detail are amazing – you really feel like royalty!
- Sage workshop
Join the Force with this awesome combination of experiences and memories. All Star Wars fans have dreamed of what kind of lightsaber they would have: now you can make that dream come true. The price is high, starting at $ 219 plus taxes, but it really is a unique experience in life. In this secret and hidden workshop, you will be able to choose the theme of your spike of light and the color of kyber crystal, learn how to assemble it and give life to an impressive ceremony that causes chills. And then you take it home! It is recommended to make advanced reservations for this popular activity that brings you one step closer to becoming a Jedi knight.
- Spa Day
After last year’s stress, we probably all need a relaxing spa day. Although both Senses locations are closed, the Dolphin Hotel’s Mandara Spa is open. Be sure and enjoy a massage, a facial or body wrap. Look and feel your best with a manicure, pedicure, hairstyle or makeover. Or really enjoy the mix and combination of treatments for a full day spa. Do you deserve a little pampering and, after all, can you really put a price on relaxation? Advance reservations can be made here. Think of all the joy you will find when you leave the world behind and say goodbye to your worries!
