It's never too early to start planning, right? Since it is now August 2018, I know lots of us Disney addicts will be booking bouncebacks, or planning to take full advantage of our AP's, and so the August 2019 trips will be entering the planning stages shortly, so come on in, and have some fun planning for next summer!

As a companion to this August 2019 thread, we also have a facebook group HERE.

News and announcements
Illuminations to end: If it's been a while since you have seen Illuminations, or you've never seen it, you might want to make the time to see it this August. Illuminations will be replaced by a new show sometime late in 2019, so this August will be the last opportunity to see the old show for many of us.

Changes to EMM in Fantasyland: Early Morning Magic in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is getting a bit of a makeover. Four new attractions are being added to the lineup: It's a Small World, Princess Fairytale Hall, Mad Tea Party, and Under the Sea: Journed of the Little Mermaid. In addition, the included breakfast is being moved from Pinocchio Village Haus to Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe'.

20 Years of Dreams Event 2019: In 2019 Dreams Unlimited Travel will be celebrating our 20th year of providing Dream Vacations for our clients. To commemorate this event we are throwing a celebration and you are invited!! There will be opportunities to meet members of the DIS Unplugged Podcast as well as various events hosted by DIS Unplugged members (TBA) and a party like no other - we will be renting out all of Pandora for an exclusive event with unlimited rides, food, entertainment and more.
Event Dates: 08/07/2019 - 08/11/2019 - Disney's Contemporary Resort
Pandora Party: 08/10/2019 11PM - 1AM - Animal Kingdom Theme Park - Pandora - The World of Avatar (No Theme Park Admission required to attend the party).
Event and party details are still be finalized and we will post them here as soon as they become available. There will be a cost to attend both the event itself and the party. As soon as we know the final price from Disney we will post that here. Advance reservations for both the event and the party will be required and at the appropriate time links to the sign-up forms will be posted.

See Full details HERE

Free Dining for the summer: Free dining is now available for dates starting July 5th 2019, and continuing through September 30th 2019. See full details HERE

Illuminations Dining Package: Imagine this: You’re dining on fine cuisine, seated at a lagoon-side patio, and enjoying specially-reserved viewing for the farewell season of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.” Beginning Jan. 18, 2019, you can turn this dream into a reality – delight your taste buds and dazzle your eyes with the “IllumiNations” Dining Package!

With the “IllumiNations” Dining Package, you can sit back and relax on the patio of the Rose & Crown Dining Room, located in the United Kingdom Pavilion, while dining on classic British fare and enjoying sweeping views of World Showcase Lagoon. The Rose & Crown patio offers a unique view of the nighttime spectacular – while it’s true that there are fantastic views of “IllumiNations” from all around World Showcase Lagoon, this location offers a unique perspective that is perfect for a romantic night out or a delicious end-of-the-day finale with family and friends. The package includes a prix fixe menu that features a selection of Rose & Crown favorites, as well as unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Start your meal off with a Scotch Egg or the United Kingdom Cheese Platter, and follow up with popular entrées such as Rose & Crown’s signature Fish and Chips, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Pan-roasted Scottish Salmon, or Bangers and Mash. And for dessert, you’ll love this Pudding Platter Trio featuring Sticky Toffee Pudding, English Trifle, and Chocolate Nougat Bar. Kids can enjoy a soup or salad with their choice of Cheese and Turkey Flatbread, Turkey Meatball Pasta, Cheesy Pasta, or Fish and Chips as well as either Fruit Salad or Trifle for dessert.

The “IllumiNations” Dining Package is a great new way to experience “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” before the show takes its final bow at the end of summer 2019. Reservations are available starting January 17 for reservations starting on January 18. Pricing is $85 per adult (ages 10 and up) and $35 per child (ages 3 to 9), with tax and gratuity included. The experience, showtimes, and menu items are all subject to change without notice, and alcoholic beverages will only be served to guests 21 and up with valid ID. For more info or to make a reservation, call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) or visit the Walt Disney World Website.

Maleficent returns to the Festival of Fantasy Parade! January 25th the Maleficent Dragon made her return to the Festival of Fantasy parade. You can see video of the January 25th parade HERE Looks like we all get to see her for our August trips!

Beaches and Cream to close for refurb in August. See details HERE

Disney offering direct bus transportation from resorts to water parks.
Starting March 17th, Disney will have direct bus routes from their resort hotels to their two water parks, making a visit to one of the water parks much less complicated. Details HERE

Gay Days moving to August. Gay Days in Orlando will be held in August this year. The event will be held August 13th to August 19th, and typically draws crowds of around 150,000. About 50,000 from the group visit the Disney parks together on selected dates, which could lead to busier parks those days. This years dates are:

Thursday, August 15th Animal Kingdom
Friday, August 16th Disney's Hollywood Studios
Saturday, August 17th Magic Kingdom
Sunday, August 18th Epcot

Thanks @DISNEY1975 for sharing it with us

Galaxy's Edge to open August 29th. Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios is set to open on August 29th. When the land opens, it will have "galactic" food and beverages available, as well as an "intriguing collection of merchant shops." The highlight of course, will be the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction, where you will have the opportunity to take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy.


Harmony Barber Shop now accepting reservations online. Visit their web page HERE and click on "Check Availability" to make your appointment. A credit card guarantee is required. Also, note that the online system will allow you to select any number of guests, however, if you pick any number above 2, it will show you no availability for any day, any time. If you have a group larger than 2 which you wish to make reservations for, you will have to make individual reservations for 2 guests at a time, or call them to make the reservations.

    Bounceback booked for PORS! August 9-16 at PORS (free dining), August 16-17 at Contemporary (room only), August 17 -19 Beach Club (room only - may book club level again, not sure yet). I'm hoping for a halloween party on August 16- I know it's early, but this year the first party was Friday August 17th, so I'm hoping next year will be Friday August 16th. If not, I will likely extend PORS or add a night on early at Beach Club. We were there for the first halloween party this year but already had other plans, so didn't book the party.

    Hey Guys!!! Just back today from our stay at the Grand Floridian. We had a wonderful trip! We fully enjoyed Toy Story Land and our 3 year old got to add Mine Train and Slinky Dog dash to his repertoire!

    We booked a BB offer for next year. We will be there from 8/17/19 - 8/24/19 at Art of Animation (Cars Suite). Next year will be amazing because our son (currently 3) will definitely be tall enough for the 40” rides. He was just shy of the bar this time around!

    We're going 8/12-8/22 for now to celebrate DD's 10th birthday. Dates may change slightly, once we can book airfare. Staying at POFQ for now, our favorite non-deluxe hotel. If a good discount comes out, we might upgrade to a MK or Epcot resort. Our first time going in August and I hope I don't melt. LOL! ;)

    Ohh . . . a Birthday celebration, now that sounds like fun! I suspect you will survive the heat just fine! I've managed to live through 10 August trips, and one July trip.
