Disney Freebies | FREE Custom Maps For Your Trip

  

free disney maps

Did you know that you can order FREE Customized Walt Disney World Maps before (and even after) your vacation? Create up to four (one for each park), and customize them to your family’s itinerary and favorite rides, shows, characters, etc…

Choose from a vintage looking “Classic” style or bright colored “Characters” style, and then follow the easy steps to personalize them. Once you create a set you’re happy with, they’ll be shipped to your door totally free!

They make an awesome souvenir to frame or use in a vacation scrapbook! You can order a set of these every six months, so you can also get a set after your trip highlighting what your favorites were.

It’s so much fun for the kids and they make perfect keepsakes!

Also, you don’t have to order these for a vacation. If you have any fond Disney memories, create a set as way to celebrate them. I’ve seen these framed, and they are beautiful (especially the vintage looking style).

One of my favorite ways to use them is as a treasure hunt game for the kids. They come with stickers, so you can let the kids place the stickers as they find characters, landmarks, and attractions throughout the parks! Actually, they are printed on heavy duty paper and sort of look like a treasure map!

How To Have A Custom Cake Made At Disney World

A few years ago it worked out that we would be at Disney during my daughter’s birthday. I had heard about having a custom cake made but had no idea where to start. After hours online, I finally found the The Cake Thread on DisBoards, which turned out to be a wealth of information! I could spend hours looking at all the pictures of cakes and reading everyone’s tips. In the end, I decided to go through the Grand Floridian’s bakery and dealt directly with the pastry chef Pat, who was amazing! She actually called me at home to go over all the details…sooo nice!!

DisBoard’s Official Cake Chatter Thread – All you’ll need to know!

I wanted an Alice In Wonderland cake for her (of course), and Pat went out of her way to create a cake that was PERFECT. To have the cake delivered to your table, you do have to dine at Grand Floridian Cafe, which can be as simple as ordering an appetizer and coffee. As far as I know, you can also pick it up from the bakery. That may have changed, so be sure to check the DisBoards forum. It’s the most up-to-date- resource I know of.

Our cake ending up costing just $78…shockingly affordable for what she created and the beautiful way they set it up at our table! My daughter is like me and very hard to surprise, so I had to enlist the help of my sister to pull it off. We told her that “Aunt Lisa” wanted to have tea at Grand Floridian, and we were going to meet her before having dinner. The bakery team went overboard and had set the table up with balloons, flowers, and the cake – it was beautiful! She actually loved the cake so much she didn’t want to eat it haha!

Disney loves to help you celebrate special occasions, so be sure to get a birthday or celebration pin from the front desk of your resort or the main gate of the park. And don’t be shy about reminding them either. I think everyone in the park knew it was my daughter’s “birthday WEEK” :-) We’ve received free desserts, cards, buttons and more.

Disney Food Review | Dole Whip & Rum (It’s True)

Calling all you Dole Whip lovers!! The next time you’re an Animal Kingdom, do yourself a favor and try the new spiked versions! You read that right. Dole Whips + rum…what’s not to love?! You can choose from Myers Dark Rum or Coconut rum, which is poured into a cup and topped with our favorite frozen Disney treat! This deliciousness can be found at Tamu-Tamu Refreshments, which also happens to be home to one of my favorite sandwiches and salads at Walt Disney World!

Dole Whip With Myers Dark or Coconut Rum

  • Where: Animal Kingdom Park (in Africa)
  • How much: $6.09
  • Dining Plan: NO (I wish)
  • Quick review: We chose the dark rum, which perfectly complimented the sweetness of the Dole Whip. If you get a swallow of the rum, it can be quite strong, so you might want to mix it up if you’re not into that. I plan on trying it with the coconut rum next time, which I think would taste very tropical! Overall, this was delicious and refreshing. At $6.09 a pop, I don’t how often I’ll get them, but it’s a nice treat :)

I’m a foodie, so food is one of the most important factors when planning a vacation. It wasn’t until the Disney dining plan was introduced that we realized what delicious food Disney World has to offer. Be sure to check the Disney Food category for lots of yummy food photos, and send me your favorites too! You can also sign up for my daily email to stay up to date on all Disney posts.
