Walt Disney World Came to Get Away Today

By Christa Lindley 01/10/2014

Although it’s the dead of winter outside of the Get Away Today office, our agents got to warm up with thoughts of sunny Florida as our contact from Walt Disney World came to share some exciting news and specials. Now, we are passing on our insider information on the new MyMagic+ and special offers to you!

First, let me tell you how awesome of an experience you will have the next time you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Each guest staying at a Disney Resort Hotel will get his or her very own customizable wristband that holds ALL of his or her vacation information. Similar to the Key to the World system, MyMagic+ will have your hotel key, your park tickets and your extra magic hour PLUS be your magical gateway to planning out the perfect vacation before you go!

Once you make your reservation with a Get Away Today travel expert, you will receive a MyMagic+ reservation number that you can use at startyourdisneyexperiance.com or by downloading the Smartphone application My Disney Experience. Once you have logged on, you can plan your vacation itinerary – make dinner reservations, plan shuttles from the airport to hotel and hotel to the park, and reserve up to 3 FASTPASS tickets per day!

Here is also where you will also make your band uniquely yours. You and your family can choose your wristband colors from seven different colors and register each individual wristband with each family member's name. Your band will come to you in the color of your choice and your name printed inside.

While you are on vacation, you can use the My Disney Experience app on your phone to check line wait times, read about different attractions, make dinner reservations, and find your favorite characters!

At the resort, your wristband will become your best friend. You will be able to “Tap and Go” to get onto shuttles, get into parks, use your FASTPASSES, and even purchase merchandise.

These are just some of the reasons the MyMagic+ bands will make your Walt Disney World vacation even more magical!

Right now, you can experience the magic for yourself and save up to 30% on rooms at select Walt Disney Resort Hotels. This offer is available most nights from March 14th – April 12th and April 20th – June 15th, 2014. Plus, when you choose a room and ticket package of 4 days or more you get one more ticket day FREE!!
