Discovery Island

Discovery Island

Walt Disney World has always had a global reputation for impeccable attention to detail and maintenance of the magic throughout their parks. But, there may be a darker side to the “Most Magical Place on Earth.” Only 300 feet away from the city’s shore, abandoned park Discovery Island lays untouched and overgrown in Bay Lake, chock full of tropical vegetation and wildlife that has been left to its own devices for years.

H20+ Skincare

H20+ Skincare

The Disney Company usually brings their A-game to everything they do, from their movies to their merchandise. The idea is that people will pay money for plenty of items, but even more people will pay even more money if those items are noticeably high-quality. This simple philosophy guided the company’s earliest artistic achievements, and the corporate behemoth of today still follows it.

When we say they do this for just about everything, we mean just about everything. If you’ve ever showered at a Disney hotel, you already know what we’re talking about. Here is some information on the bath amenities by a long-time Disney partner, H20+.

Swiss Family Robinson

Swiss Family Robinson

Adventureland, one of the classic themed areas of the Disneyland-style parks, is filled with memorable rides and shows. However, there is more to this land than the swashbuckling mayhem of Pirates of the Caribbean and the pun-riddled escapades of the Jungle Cruise.

Located on a massive artificial tree is an elaborate and beautiful home. There you’ll find strange contraptions constructed from bamboo, fancy furniture surrounded by wilderness, and circular steps towards rooms with an enviable view of the park. This walk-through attraction is the most enduring legacy of Disney’s 1960 live-action adventure film, Swiss Family Robinson.

Harry Potter

Harry Potter

Here at Your WDW Store, we understand that, as improbable as it may sound, there is more to the world and its popular stories than the many wonderful movies of Walt Disney Productions. One relatively recent story in particular, whose first book was first released in 1997, has taken the world by storm. One book series, above all others in the two decades since has entrenched itself as an enduring work of literature. You have probably already guessed what it is: JK Rowling’s seven-book series about the Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter.

New MagicBand 2 Bracelets 2018

New MagicBand 2 Bracelets 2018

MagicBands, Bandits, and Accessories

Everybody is talking about the new Walt Disney World MagicBands. What makes them so great and why are they better than the old ones? Actually, if you've never heard of MagicBands, an introduction is in order. (Don't worry, we were all Disney newbies once!)

A MagicBand is a special bracelet that Disney includes as part of its resort reservations and vacation packages. Depending on how early you make your reservation, and what country you're coming from, you'll either pick up your MagicBand upon arrival or have it mailed to you. Your MagicBand contains an RFID chip with multiple purposes. It can be used to check in, to enter your hotel room, and to access other areas in your resort. If you connect your admission tickets to your account, you can also use your MagicBand to enter Disney theme parks. If you connect your credit card and create a PIN, you can use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your hotel room. Basically, a MagicBand is an all-purpose Disney access and payment accessory.
