I am from Melbourne Australia, and despite only being to DL twice, I am a HUGE fan! And my passion is slowly rubbing off on my 5 year old son :)

Hi all! Has anyone used My Mickey Vacation to help plan a Disney trip? Coming from Australia so love the idea but want to make sure it's legitimate!!! Cheers :)
I have not used it. Are you wanting to stay on Disney property? If you are, I bet the concierge could help you with most of that.  - JenGwen323   2314.6 #85 4-5-15 10:02AM Like  Reply

Hi all!!! I've been lucky enough to make the trip to DL from Australia with my son 3 times but am trying to decide if next year we should try WDW! What are your thoughts on DL vs WDW?
The Harry Potter lands at Universal (not Disney but only like 20min away) are also super awesome to experience at least once and the frozen butterbeer is soooo good!  We love DL and WDW but if you've never been to WDW you should DEfINitely go! EPCOT is great!  - spicy   828.5 #273 1-7-15 1:05PM Like(1)  Reply
We've done the trip to disneyland 3 times as well from oz and we are going to Disneyworld in October  with 5 nights in the animal kingdom and 8 nights in the boardwalk - Kurt76   128.5 #3260 1-4-15 3:58AM Like  Reply
Good choices, I have stayed in both. Animal Kingdom is gorgeous. Boardwalk is walking distance to two parks so less busses. - ShariRenee  15099.3 #7 1-10-15 1:51PM
There's different things about each park. WDW is larger and bigger and has different stories and attractions that aren't in CA. Also, it has a lot more variety of food and experiences. I like to go there to recharge and enjoy the parks for a week, but overall, I'm still biased to DL because its the original. But Epcot is definitely my favorite park among the 4 there.   - BaseballMickey   9258.0 #14 1-10-15 2:39PM Like  Reply
If you've never been I would definitely say WDW!  You will love it so much.  It's different in many ways, but still magical. 😊 - MinnieMousewife   928.2 #245 1-10-15 2:51PM Like  Reply

I don't believe so but they do charge if you want to withdraw money at an ATM - missmimi90  2086.8 #96 10-31-13 8:27PM
Make sure they know you are traveling to the US. Otherwise they might think it was stolen. Everywhere I can think of in DL takes Amex. Most places outside take it. If you have Visa as backup for emergency, you should be fine. Some of the food carts, etc take cash only though. - DLKenCA   3769.6 #50 10-31-13 11:22PM Like  Reply

The premium discount is currently 20% on merchandise and 15% on food. If you will have a car, the parking is included, which saves $15/day. If you know how much you spent on your last trip, perhaps you can see if that will be worth the difference. Premium passes are US$649 right now, so if you decide to do it, just one of you needs to get the AP. - bluefairy  643.8 #372 2-9-13 2:22AM

I think if you buy the character dining tickets beforehand the tax and gratuity was included. At least, that's how it used to be a couple years ago. Things change. Especially prices. 😩💸 - luv2laffhahahaha   111.0 #3614 10-19-12 8:02AM Like  Reply

Hi everyone!!!! 3 weeks and we will be there :) I wondered what the best viewing for WOC is? We were looking at doing the picnic but weren't sure if that's the best way to go. I knew you guys would have suggestions!!!!! Thank you and ca  More...
I personally haven't done the picnics but I've heard mixed reviews. Depending on what your budget is, you can consider one of the dinner packages from Ariel's grotto or Wine Country Trattoria. I've seen WoC from the bridge and it was amazing just because you have a good view without obstructions in front of you and no fast passes needed just make sure you get there early enough to sve seats. But really any place you watch it you'll enjoy it. - TikiJOSEsWingman   332.4 #856 10-18-12 6:07PM Like  Reply
