Walt Disney World is targeting families with toddlers and preschool children to fill up hotels in August and September, when folks with older kids head home to start getting ready for school.
The new “Magical Beginnings” program, from Aug. 13 through Sept. 30, will have hotel and meal packages, along with more entertainment and activities, for families with small children, Disney said Tuesday.
Much of Magical Beginnings will be exclusively for visitors who book Disney World hotels. For example, such families will be able to get into the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland an hour earlier than the park’s usual opening time on a few select days. And they’ll have more exclusive meet-and-greet opportunities with costumed characters.
