Free Dining Disney World 2013 Predictions

Eat.Breathe.Sleep.Magic.

Free-Dining-1

***Update:  New rumor here.***

Everyone wants to know:  When, oh when, will Disney release their ever popular Free Dining discount for 2013??

The quick answer:  No one knows for sure.

The long answer:  The good news is I am very hopeful to see fall free dining for 2013.  In the past, Disney has split up the fall months into 2 time frames:  September and October-December.

For the month of September free dining promotion:  Last year Disney released that free dining discount right around March 5, 2012, so we are already a little late for this promotion in 2013.  It had to be booked by May 18th for the travel dates August 25 – September 29, 2012.

For the the October – December free dining promotion:  Last year, Disney released the free dining discount right around July 12, 2012 and it had to be booked by Sept 29, 2012. The…

Disneyways

Our latest edition to our World Secrets Series is taking us to Jellyrolls! This adult-oriented facility provides a noisy – yet very FUN retreat for the 21 and up crowd.   Jellyrolls  is named after Jelly Roll Morton, a legendary jazz pianist, not a desssert.

Depending on where you start out on Disney property,  you can get to Jellyrolls Piano Bar by boat, a bus, or even on foot. More on that later.

So what’s Jellyrolls like?  Well, it reminded me of Howl at the Moon, which is a similar piano bar located here in Orlando, and in 15 other locations across the country. What makes this different is it is at Disney, perhaps the only place in the world where you will hear a gritty-voiced piano man sing a song…

For the past several months, The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Simi Valley has been hosting Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, presented by D23. This exhibition is truly a must-visit for any Disney geek and it runs through April 30, 2013.

For me, one of the most exciting displays was the three prop storybooks that open at the beginning of “Sleeping Beauty,” “Snow White” and “Cinderella” to introduce each of the films. They’re so iconic, it was a thrill to see them in person.

Also impressive was the re-creation of Walt’s formal office at the Burbank studios, including his actual desk and personal items like Norman Rockwell sketches of his daughters.

According to the information card, songwriter Richard Sherman — co-composer of “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room” with his brother Robert B. Sherman — would often play “Feed the Birds” (Walt’s favorite song from…
