Step up to Disney’s Premium Plan for a much more inclusive alternative to the standard Magic Your Way package. It consists of all the components of the Magic Your Way with Deluxe Dining package, plus a number of additional features. It’s a great choice for travelers who plan to take advantage of the many recreational activities around Walt Disney World and like the ease of prepayment and knowing the full cost of their vacation up front.
Unlike the Deluxe Dining which assesses two dining credits for certain types of meals, on the Platinum Plan, Signature restaurants, character meals, even the dinner shows and in-room dining are included in the cost and represent only one meal. There are also many recreational opportunities: water sports and boating, horseback, pony, and carriage rides, miniature golf, fishing excursions and cane-pole fishing, parasailing, and biking. As a Premium Plan guest, you enjoy unlimited golf with green fees, golf carts, rental clubs and shoes, even private golf lessons. You can experience many of the behind-the-scenes tours and take advantage of a professional portrait session with print package.
If your party consists of eight or more, you can participate in the Grand Gathering experiences as part of your package. Tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba and unlimited use of the Children’s Activity Centers are also included. Disney’s Premium Plan is a spectacular way to sample some of the many activities and unique experiences that Walt Disney World has to offer.
Sometimes, planning a vacation to Walt Disney World can be a bit overwhelming. There are a seemingly infinite number of things to see and do and so many decisions to be made. At Whimsical World Travel, we like to break this down into manageable pieces by concentrating first on the major components of the trip.
There are generally five key areas that need to be addressed: transportation, accommodations, park admission, dining, and recreation. Years ago, the convenience of bundling these together came at a premium. Disney packages were more expensive than the same options purchased separately. For some time now, however, packages have provided equal or better value. Currently, Disney offers three distinct choices: the basic “Magic Your Way” package, the “Magic Your Way Premium Package” also called the “Premium Plan,” and the “Magic Your Way Platinum Package” also referred to as the “Platinum Plan.”
While the names have sometimes changed and there have been minor modifications to the inclusions and benefits, all three offer the following:
- Accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel
- Customizable Disney Theme Park tickets
- Complimentary Disney’s Magical Express airport transfers
- Commemorative luggage tags
- Voucher packet of dining and recreation discounts
It’s the differences amongst the three that usually cause the most confusion. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be reviewing each package and examining the elements that are included as well as the available additions. Being knowledgeable about your options will help you make the best choices for your next Walt Disney World vacation!
