Disney Travel Tip: Save On Drinks

Travel Series Logo

With a family of 5, we tend to drink a lot! Especially when we are not at home, our girls think that they need to have something to drink every 5 minutes! So there are a few things we do to keep the cost of drinks to a minimal while vacationing in Disney.

  • Bring A Cooler- Disney allows you to bring a soft sided cooler. This is great to keep it full of bottles of water, bottled drinks, juice boxes, etc. Keep an ice pack in the bottom and you know have drinks that you were able to pick up at the Dollar Store, Target or your local grocery store at a better price than at the park! Just keep this in mind, Disney does not allow glass containers at any of the parks and no straws at Animal Kingdom due to safety of the animals.
  • Ask For A Cup Of Ice Water- This is probably my favorite part! Stop by any counter service restaurant and ask for a FREE cup of ice water (it is tap water). This is a great way to keep your family hydrated without the cost. Disney’s tap water does have a little bit of a funny taste and since my family is very picky when it comes to their water taste buds, I have another trick. Before you head to the park, fill your bag with drink mix packets (Kool Aid, Lemonade, Tea, etc) to add to the FREE cup of ice water! This will help satisfy their taste buds, keep them hydrated and keep money in your pocket! (EXTRA TIP: Buy a couple Filtered Water Bottles to make the tap water from Disney taste better!)
  • FREE Samples from Epcot Club Cool- There is a this great shop in Epcot that sells Coke Merchandise and gives you FREE Samples of Coke products from around the world! This is a great way to not only try out some great drinks from other countries but can quench your thirst with some sweet drinks!
  • Refillable Cups- Not all the parks offer this but both water parks at Disney offers a refillable cup for around $10 for unlimited drinks all day! This can be a great way to help spend less if you plan on getting several drinks throughout the day! Hot days at the park would make this deal worth every penny!

Check out other ways our family plans to save while on vacation in Disney!

Oz The Great & Powerful Hits Theaters March 8- Mariah Carey Records “Almost Home”

GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MARIAH CAREY RECORDS “ALMOST HOME”

FOR DISNEY’S “OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL”

 

BURBANK, CALIF. (February 6, 2013)–Disney announced today that multiple GRAMMY® Award–winning superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song, “Almost Home,” for “Oz The Great and Powerful,” the studio’s highly anticipated fantastical adventure, directed by Sam Raimi, releasing in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013.

“Almost Home” will be released as a single by Carey’s label, Island Def Jam, on February 19, 2013.  Award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for “Almost Home.”  The two long-time collaborators are reuniting in what LaChapelle describes as “a duet between Mariah and the movie.”  LaChapelle photographed Carey previously for album covers, and directed her in the music video “Loverboy.” Disney, Carey and Island Def Jam plan to launch a promotional campaign to support the single, the video and the film.

“‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced  for “Oz The Great and Powerful.” “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and eighteen Billboard #1 singles (seventeen self-penned). With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five GRAMMY® Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard’s Artist of the Decade Award,  the World Music Award for World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium and BMI’s Icon Award for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few. Carey is currently working on her new studio album to be released this spring.

“Almost Home” is performed by Mariah Carey, produced by Mariah Carey and Stargate for 45th & 3rd Music LLC, written by Simone Porter, Justin Gray, Lindsey Ray, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Mariah Carey. Courtesy of Island Def Jam Music Group/Universal Music Group.

 

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.

“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.

Screenplay by:                          Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee

From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

NOTES:

OFFICIAL BOILERPLATE:

From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? Rated PG by the MPAA, “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
