Making in-room dining magic

White Chocolate Mickey 

Time again for another Tip Tuesday!

This week, I wanted to share a tip about making magic for others, whether you're at Walt Disney World or not.  First, I want to thank my very good friend Beci Mahnken at MouseFanTravel for helping me with this tip because I used this tip myself just last week.

Many guests know about in-room dining (also known as room service), of course.  But what guests don't know is that in-room dining goes beyond breakfast, lunch and dinner options.  Disney in-room dining also can create and deliver amazing celebration plates that can be delivered to a room, even if you're not there in person to order it.  This also can be a great way to leave a little surprise for your friends or family during your visit.

Here's how it works.  First, you need to think ahead.  Most of these options require at least 24 hours advance notice so you need to make sure you give yourself enough lead time to make this happen.

If you're not at WDW, call the resort where the guest is staying and ask for in-room dining.  If you are, just call in-room dining from your in-room phone.  Depending on where your guest is staying, you have a number of options to choose from such as chocolate characters (shown above) to chocolate covered strawberries to fruit and cheese baskets.

Prices range anywhere from about $20-$30 for a chocolate character to around $35 for chocolate covered strawberries to about $50 for a wine and cheese basket.  These prices do not include tax or delivery charge, so be sure to factor those costs in when deciding to do an in-room dining surprise.

Now in-room dining isn't the only way to make a little in-room magic.  Be sure to see a post from this time last year about the Disney Florist.

I'd also like to take this moment to say a heartfelt congratulations to all those who ran in the Family Fun Run 5K, the half and full marathon and those amazing Goofy runners!  I especially want to send along my congrats to my fellow WDW Running Team members!  Way to go!!!
