    With all the exciting changes coming to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort , I thought it would be fun to look at a guest room through the years. (No signage changed yet! This picture below is from 1989.) Inside the photo gallery you can take a look at guest rooms from 1972 until 2013. (Please note this is not a comprehensive look – just select photos from our archives.)

    You might have noticed a mini theme here on Chip & Co. on the subject of manners .  Taking time to remember that you aren’t the only guest really does make for the most magical of vacations!  Manners, etiquette , courtesy…whatever you call it…it all matters!  Toady we are taking a lighthearted look at what you need to know in order to dine with characters (that is with manners)!   Hopefully you have never had to sit through character dining  with ill-mannered park guests!I love character dining!  There is nothing more magical than eating and hanging out with your favorite characters at Disney!  It is the ultimate way to create  a magic moment of memories while at the parks!  That is unless you have the misfortune of  eating alongside characters like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee! Park guests with good manners… Wait their turn… If you have never  experienced character dining at Disney, it works like this: guests are seated to eat and enjoy (buffet meals are you serve yourself where menu meals let you sit back and let your waiter to take care of serving you) as characters make their rounds.  Each character will stop and chat, take photos, and sign autographs.

    Everyone knows that Magic Kingdom  is the place to be during the holidays.  At least everyone that read my article Disney World Quick Tips- Christmas in the Magic Kingdom .  Now I’m going to continue my Christmas in July series and discuss what happens during the holiday season at Epcot , Animal Kingdom , Hollywood Studios and Downtown Disney .  Click on each heading to be directed to some great photos taken by one of our writers.  Be sure to click on the photo gallery at the bottom for my vacation pictures of the Disney in its holiday finery. Downtown Disney Downtown Disney is like Santa’s Workshop.  Everything you need to fill your stockings surrounds you at every turn.   If I had an unlimited shopping experience at Downtown Disney  my first stop would be the LEGO Imagination Center .  Actually it’s where my husband and older son would blow the most money.  They would stock up on unique LEGO pieces and then get a set to put together when they got home.  Me, well I would take my half and spend it at Once Upon a Toy and Disney’s Days of Christmas .  Once Upon a Toy is where I would splurge on some Mr. Potato Head pieces (for my sons of course) and get a few board games for the upcoming winter months.  Disney’s Days of Christmas store not only has ornaments, but holiday  goodies such as cocoa, chocolate and cookies.  Great gifts to bring home for those unlucky enough to be at Disney with you.  Everywhere you turn there is variety of  one of a kind shops to make everyone’s holiday merrier. After you’ve completed your holiday shopping, Downtown Disney boasts some holiday  events.  Here is where you will find the big man himself, Santa Claus.  Starting mid-November through New Years Day (times vary) you can meet Santa and  give him your wish list in his chalet.  Note: Starting December 25th through January 1st Santa will be replaced by Santa Goofy.  My guess is Santa has a few things to do

    Disneyland: Sunrise to Sunrise is the first TouringPlans eBook, which is a collection of over 200 photos from one single operational day in Disneyland, specifically “One More Disney Day.” Touring Plans author Tom Bricker captured all of the photos in the eBook as he ran around Disneyland during the course of that morning, day, night, and morning (again). He was one of the crazy Disneyland guests in the park on “One More Disney Day” from start to the very finish, and he snapped hundreds of photos along the way to document the day. If you’re not a regular reader of the TouringPlans Blog , you may recognize his photography from the Unofficial Guide: Color Companion to Walt Disney World , Popular Photography Magazine , or his daily Disney photos . As Chief Photographer for TouringPlans , he is also responsible for the photos at the top of each page of the Touring Plans website and the attraction photo galleries, among other things
