Celebrating Easter at Walt Disney World

I rarely mention Disneyland news on WDWIG, but there was a major policy change regarding admissions and I felt it was important enough to mention here.

Disneyland Decides 10-Year-Olds Must Pay Adult Price! After years of allowing children age 11 and under to enter the park with a children's ticket, there has been a major change in policy!

Ages 3 - 9 now get into the park at a child's rate, those 10 and over must now pay adult pricing.

Makes one wonder if WDW is next!


Easter is one of the peak times to visit Walt Disney World. I receive lots of email from folks asking about special Easter celebrations in terms of both religious services and restaurants. Someone was kind enough to forward the information to me and so I can now share it with you.

Mickey’s Main Street Easter Parade -Daily at 3 p.m. from April 15 – 23. Festive floats carrying Mickey, Minnie and many other favorite Disney characters all dressed up in their Sunday best are a colorful delight that puts onlookers in the holiday spirit.

Deb is looking for photos of the Easter Parade. If you have any, please email me (do NOT send the photos, just email me first, thanks!)
