Dumbo and Timothy Mouse

"The characters Dumbo and Timothy Mouse on the Disney Fantasy’s stern weigh in at more than 2,300 pounds. Dumbo is a little over eight feet long from head to tail with an “ear span” of seven feet. Timothy Mouse sits 2’6″ tall on Dumbo’s hat and is holding a paint brush that’s about 3’10″ long. Dumbo was sculpted from large foam blocks by Walt Disney Imagineering artists in Glendale, California. The sculpted pieces were then shipped to Florida where Disney craftsmen and artists created him in fiberglass and paint over a frame of marine-grade stainless steel. The duo was installed in Papenburg, Germany." (Source: DCLNews.com)

MagicBands

MagicBands are amazing little devices and my son has a difficult time putting his away when back home.

MagicBands make our visits convenient because we travel lighter during our Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park touring. They are waterproof wristbands that store your Disney Resort hotel reservations - including your Theme and Water Park Admission, Special Event Admission, Disney Dining Plan Meal Entitlements, Disney PhotoPassServiceimages and they enable charging privileges to your Disney Resort hotel Guest Room account. Not to mention all those little magical surprises!

The vacation was nice and long and the days alternated between a Disney Theme Park and relaxing by the pool and enjoying the Savanna...and of course frolicking at Disney Springs, what could be better!? Wait, there's more, as Disney Resort hotel Guests, we enjoyed benefits like no other and Pixie-Dusted experiences throughout our stay.

We were able to modify our existing reservation to include a Disney Dining Plan package, creating an inclusive, pre-paid vacation. All I concerned myself with was souvenirs, touring Theme Parks, eating and being a kid again. You too, can also build an inclusive, pre-paid Magic…
