This week, we looked ahead to the holidays and shared some great news! Due to overwhelming popularity, we’ve increased the number of 2019 Ultimate Disney Christmas Packages available at the Walt Disney World Resort and extended the booking window for this special offer.
Visit Jeremy’s original “Ultimate Disney Christmas” story for more details on the Yuletide offerings.
Also, along with our other Halloween stories, we shared an update that guests visiting DisneyStyle at Disney Springs on Thursday, Oct. 24. From 1-9 p.m. can enjoy a complimentary new look from special guest, Character Couture!
Character Couture is a team of professional stylists from our Walt Disney World Salons who can transform you into our classic characters (including hair, makeup, and nails). Visit Kelsey’s original “Spooky Shopping and Glam Looks at DisneyStyle” story for more images and details.
