Something that so many guests have been waiting for is very close to returning to normal. Disney just announced that traditional character greetings are set to return to Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, and Aulani Resort this spring!
Details for Disney’s newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, were released recently and the ship is beautiful! Disney shared quite a bit about their newest addition to the fleet and while guests will find some of the same things on this ship as are on Disney’s other ships, there are also some new experiences for guests to enjoy.
This week’s ears in the spotlight definitely give off that beachy vibe.
Recently I had the opportunity to explore one of the Disney Cruise Line ships. Disney’s cruise ships are beautiful, so needless to say I was pretty excited.
Dream Makers Travel Agency is the agency that I work with to create magical Disney vacations. Recently Dream Makers Travel Agency received some big news.
Let’s be honest, Disney trips are not inexpensive. Most people have to save for a while to be able to take a trip to a Disney location. So it’s always nice when Disney releases promotions to help guests save some money.
Disney cookbooks are great to have in the home, because they give you the ability to recreate favorite dishes you had during your vacation. The cookbooks have recipes from all different Disney destinations, so there are a wide variety of recipes to choose from.
A lot of people will do “land and sea” vacations, where they book a Disney Cruise and some time in Disney World. So it helps to stay updated with the different itineraries that Disney has available and Disney has just released some new itineraries for summer 2017.
It’s no surprise that Star Wars Day at Sea was an extremely popular option for guests looking to cruise with Disney. Not only do you get the fun of a Disney cruise, but you get to meet some of your favorite Star Wars characters. Well, it was so popular that Disney has now decided to bring it back for early in 2017!
It’s unfortunate, but it happens a lot on Facebook. People create these fake accounts and get people’s hopes up that they could win a trip to Disney World.
Seriously, these people who create the fake accounts are pathetic. They find joy in giving those, who may never be able to afford a Disney trip, the hope that they could win a trip from them. It’s sad when you read the comments. People thank them over and over and say they would never be able to go and that they are so grateful to be able to enter this contest. Others actually put more personal details in their comments, probably thinking that will help their chances of winning the “contest.” It really is very mean and I feel so bad for all the people they dupe.
It’s easy to be tricked by them. They use a picture that looks like it is an official Disney picture and the title of the page, at first glance, looks official too. It’s easy to miss the period at the end.
How do you tell a scammer account? First and foremost the pictures that go along with the “contest” usually look like a table full of handmade goodie bags you would see at a child’s birthday party.
Second, the name on the account will have a dash or a period in it; Disney’s Facebook Accounts have no dashes or periods. The names on the accounts are the full name of the destination: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, etc.
Lastly, the fake accounts are not verified accounts. When you do a search for Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, or any of Disney’s official pages, you will see a white checkmark in a blue circle. Hover over the checkmark and it will say “Verified Page,” so you know it’s a legitimate Disney page.
I’m not sure what these people gain from having people comment and share the pictures, but I would imagine they do something with the names they collect. Also, if there is a link in the post, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK. Clicking on the link is probably how they collect information.
So, if you a contest seems suspect to you, I would play it safe and not comment, share, or click on any links. The best thing to do would be to report the page to Facebook and hopefully they will take it down quickly.
Thanks for reading!
