    As Disney Vacation Club celebrated “25 years and BEYOND” in 2016, you could say 2017 is the year “BEYOND” begins. Fueled by that forward-looking spirit, Disney Vacation Club recently unveiled “ Membership Magic Ever After ,” a colorful collection of extended Membership Extras from 2016, additional offers and opportunities for 2017 and new Disney developments that together will help pen the next great chapter in our community’s collective story. Among the instantly popular 2016 offerings continuing in 2017 are the Member Lounge for Members visiting Epcot (a lofty space on the second floor of the park’s iconic Imagination! Pavilion), complimentary events after hours in Disney Parks (events to be known this year as “Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic”), doubled Walt Disney World Resort  merchandise discounts (the new 20 percent discount, up from the previous 10 percent discount, is valid at select Disney-owned-and-operated shops at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort ), expanded Walt Disney World dining discounts ( Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is now the only Walt Disney World-owned-and-operated table-service restaurant excluded from the 10 percent discount offer) and the waiving of the customary $95 RCI transaction fee (for new RCI reservations made in 2017). New offerings for 2017, meanwhile, include the addition of a proposed 14th resort to the neighborhood ( Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge , scheduled to open in 2017 and not yet fully registered or available for sale), the first Eastern Caribbean Member Cruise (an already-sold-out Aug

    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
