Starting at just $899, a family of three (two adults, one child age 3 to 9) can get a 3-night, 2-day package that includes 2-day theme park tickets and 3 nights in a standard room at a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

For many families, traveling is about more than just seeing different destinations. It’s a way to learn about other cultures and bring history life in a unique way. Disney shares this viewpoint, which is why we provide so many culturally rich opportunities on our cruises in Europe.
If you want to know more about how you can immerse your family in the culture of Europe when sailing the Mediterranean with us this summer, take a look at our next “Mom’s Take” video with Marcy from the Disney Parks Moms Panel. She points out different teaching tools you can use while traveling with your kids and even highlights a few of the specific Port Adventures that incorporate learning in a fun way.

This is a story of determination, inspiration and the celebration of life.
Two years ago Dominic Alexander from Washington State began his day getting ready for a barbeque with family and friends, but in a split second his life changed forever. Climbing a ladder in his shop to get pillows for patio furniture, he lost his balance and fell 14 feet, smashing his head onto the concrete floor and suffering a traumatic brain injury. Dominic’s wife Teresa remembers, “If you listened to the medics, if you talked to the doctors, he basically wasn’t alive. It was grim and they couldn’t help but grab my arm and make sure I knew how serious it was.”
With faith, love, and a determination to live, Dominic beat the odds and started on the road to recovery. One of his first goals was to return to running. Dominic says it was important because “it was the one thing that could make me feel normal.” Once cleared by doctors he started putting one foot in front of the other, kept moving forward, and today continues to race to the the finish line of recovery. Doctors credit his positive attitude and being in great shape from running as keys to helping him get where he is today.
With the goal of running side-by-side with his twin brother in the half marathon, Dominic and family traveled to Florida to participate in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna. When asked what he would be celebrating, Dominic said, “being alive.” I invite you to take a couple moments and share Dominic’s journey to the finish line.

This week, we shared a tweet that truly featured 140 characters to officially announce our bicoastal, All-Night Disney Side Party to kick off summer.
