We LOVE the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Walt Disney World. The upbeat song, dancing in the streets, and jubilant atmosphere really make this one of our favorite parade experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort. Plus- what’s not to love about the enormous fire breathing Maleficent dragon!?

One thing we book early (even for ourselves) every year is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort. This private, after hours event is such fun. It is among our family favorites to do annually.  Seeing the Headless Horseman gallop down Main Street USA just launches our Halloween season perfectly!

I have written about MNSSHP many times, but I would love to share some of the highlights with you that we have collected. You are in luck this year if you want to attend the party- Disney has added many more dates!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place on the following dates:

  • August 25 and 29, 2017.
  • September 1, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26 and 29, 2017.
  • October 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 29 and 31, 2017.
  • November 1, 2017.

Who doesn’t love the “Boo to You” Halloween Parade?! There are so many fun things to see within this crowd favorite.

Oh Noes! Don’t Let This Happen to You! Support Small Businesses!

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  June 28, 2017

I’m gonna be blunt for just a minute.

When you book your travel with Moffits: Mad Hatter Adventures, you are helping us personally. It helps us to support our four children. It helps us to pay for housing, insurance, healthcare, food, and everyday necessities. It helps us do fun things like Disney and travel. Without your help we would be in big trouble. We VALUE our Mad Hatter client family!

We would MUCH rather you ask us for several quotes and change things a million times than to worry about “bothering” us. And we beg of you……if something is cheaper than our quotes, let us attempt to price match. MANY of our booking engines do price matches!

Don’t let this be you! Book with us- anywhere you can travel, we can book! Cruises, beaches, desert or lake. We will work hard for you, whenever you need us! Don’t wind up at a resort you overpay for, or at a tourist trap that you could avoid and spend time elsewhere that is highly rated. We know the best places to travel and the best deals for any budget. We do ALL Disney, Universal, Sandals, Beaches, and so much more!

The worst thing for us is to look at our social media feeds and see people we know on the road, doing things we know to avoid – and paying too much for them. It honestly bothers us because these are friends and acquaintances! We care about these folks. We want them to have nothing but the best experiences when traveling with their families just the same as we want it for our own family. Yes, anyone can open an app and find a resort or hotel to stay at these days- but they won’t have the exact rating information that we are privy to.  There is a reason these apps make money off of the bookings. Let us guide you and keep you from falling into a pitfall during travel.

Why not book through our agency and support our local economy?!

Just being honest, folks, and if you ask me the world needs more of that these days. Let’s support one another- and while we are at it please let us know if you sell a small business product (we are seeking a LuLaRoe Disney individual to work with right now!). Support is everything!

Much love! Thank you to all who have booked with us, and we look forward to booking many more of you in the coming days!

Thank you to all of our family and friends who supported us when we announced that we were going to focus on travel and adventure in our lives. Your support helps US support our family, and we appreciate those of you who have booked a trip or vacation through us immensely.

We do not take that lightly. We care about each one of our clients and their families, truly. We are not a huge corporation, although we do book vacations for many. It IS different. You allow us to share our love for adventure with you on a personal note. Don’t book directly- go through us and become a member of our valued Mad Hatter Family.

Vacation Spotlight: Making a Disney Trip Affordable

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  June 23, 2017

wdw2017129725510886_8029484920_dsnyRes-base_dsnyLoc-reg

One of the most common things my husband and I hear from people when discussing Disney:

We’ve always wanted to go to Disney, but it’s just too expensive for us. Can you help us?”

My answer is a resounding YES! We sure can. It is sad to me when I hear from a family that laments that they have not spent time at Walt Disney World or Disneyland because they feel that they simply can not afford it. There are so many ways to make your dream vacation a reality, including some ways that won’t hit you all at once in the pocketbook.

IMG_1961

We can help most anyone book Disney for the most memorable vacation of their lives. Seriously. We do it every single day. The most important thing I ask is about a budget, and that is the first thing you need to establish before we book you for anything.

It is easy to go over budget with Disney- very easy. It is no different than anything else in life. You set a budget, and you have to stick to it. When I book you, you can tell me your budget and then we can tailor a package that fits. Planning ahead is a MUST DO for a Disney vacation. Booking in advance allows you to save your package (usually for only $200!) and then you can make smaller payments as you go, even using Disney gift cards should you want to. Start early- the sooner the better! You can book up to 499 days in the future.

Another thing that you must keep in mind is to be realistic. Disney has many different seasons and these times of year cost differently than others. Consulting with us, we can advise you to which times of year are less expensive than others and provide you with knowledge and insight to choose some excellent travel dates. Once you know your travel dates AND your budget, the planning can begin.

There are SO many ways to save money (and time) when planning a Disney vacation. All of these things are taken into account when you consult with a trained professional travel agency (such as Mad Hatter Adventures). Disney also offers a myriad of discounts throughout the year, so when you book with us we will automatically check to see if any discounts announced are applicable to your reservation. We have saved our Mad Hatter family thousands!

It is important that you keep in mind that the best discounts such as free dining, room only specials, etc, do run out within a matter of hours- having an authorized Disney vacation planning agency on your side to apply these special deals is a common sense kind of thing.

Planning for Disney can be done for any budget- it just takes some foresight and consulting.

Talking Skull Returns to Pirate’s of the Caribbean After 11 Years….

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures    June 22, 2017

mqdefault

An old, familiar….er….face has returned to Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort. It’s new purpose? To mask the brand new on-ride photo that has recently been installed. And they say dead men tell no tales!

The skull was removed during the refurbishment in 2006 (the one in which Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa were added to the attraction, among other things). The skull speaks for a moment and a flash occurs from his eyes timed to the sound of thunder. It is not the original dialogue, but it is interesting to see his return nonetheless.
