Disney Planning: Extras

I’m writing this a little later than I would have liked to, but being home with family and friends always means running around to see everyone! I do enjoy seeing all of my loved ones, but it’s nice to sit down and relax after a busy day! So today I thought we could discuss Disney extra’s!  Just those things that can make your tip that much more magical!

I did want to start off by stating (because I forgot to in my last post) that most table service restaurants take reservations 180 days in advance, and is HIGHLY suggested for places like Cinderella’s Castle.  My advice is if you’d rather not wait in line forever, and if you really have your heart set on certain restaurants that you make a reservation in advance.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk magical moments! We will be discussing the following ideas:

  1. In-room celebrations
  2. Dining extras
  3. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
  4. Tinkerbell gifts

 

In-Room Celebrations

In-room celebrations are offered to any party staying in a Disney Resort through Disney Floral and Gifts.  These celebrations vary in theme and include welcome, birthday, Christmas, Halloween, Princess, Pirate, and Frozen celebrations.  Basically what happens is you can pick an in-room celebration on their website (or by calling them directly) and a staff member will deliver your celebration to your resort and DECORATE YOUR ROOM for when you return.  This really adds that special touch of magic for little ones.  Prices vary and range from reasonable to extravagant!  Check out the site for yourself, they have some pretty cool things. You can even design your own celebration package!

Dining Extras

Want to spice things up at dinner for a loved ones birthday or anniversary?  Don’t fret, Disney has thought of that, too.  You can go back to Disney Floral and Gifts and order celebrations to your restaurant ! For example, since we plan on having Hailey’s birthday dinner at Cinderella’s Table we were looking into their princess packages that can be delivered.

They offer My Disney Fairy Tale Proclamation for $285.95

My Storybook Moment for $143.95

and Her Royal Highness Package for $110

I emailed them concerning these packages, and I feel it is also good to know you can also order things separately.  I was told you can just have balloons, or a Tiara waiting for them if you wish!  I think this is awesome because it allows you to add extra magic without breaking the bank.  In order to do something outside the packages shown on the Disney Floral and Gifts sight, you would need to call them!

** It is important to note that these prices do not include taxes or gratuity**

You can find more information on these packages here.

Certain restaurants and resorts also allow you to order cakes that can be delivered to the location you desire.  For the list of all cakes available and at which locations you can find more information here.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

One of the coolest things I found was this princess dress up boutique!  It has two locations in Disney World : One in Magic Kingdom inside Cinderella’s Castle, and one in Disney Springs (formerly downtown Disney).   This boutique allows your child (ages 3-12) have a complete princess makeover.  There are various package options that steadily increase in price.  Planning for a little man? No worries! You can do Knight and Pirate makeovers, too! Learn more about what’s included in each package by visiting the boutique’s website here.

 

Tinker Bell Gifts

Tinker Bell gifts are a parent made creation! I can’t seem to find where the idea originated from, but the idea is pretty simple: Stock up on Disney memorabilia before arriving in order to save money, and make the trip extra special!  Why are they called Tinkerbell gifts?  Because the fairy leaves them, of course! From what I could find, you are to leave a gift containing those things you’ll need for the days adventures for the kids to find in the morning! I love this idea!

Ideas for  things to include in Tinkerbell gifts include:

  • Poncho/raincoat
  • Mouse ears
  • Glowsticks/light up wand
  • sunglasses
  • bathing suit
  • autograph book
  • hat
  • P.J.’s
  • Disney Clothing
  • Pins
  • Lanyard
  • Snacks
  • Toys

And that’s about all I have for tonight! Stay tuned for tomorrow when we discuss fastpass+ and magicbands!
