Disney is commencing with demolition of the viking ship at the Norway pavilion in Epcot. It was once a play area for children and then became a piece of scenery as the wood began to rot and now is going to become a memory.

Disney’s Online Check-In service enables Guests to simplify their arrival by allowing them to go online and provide information related to their upcoming stay. On a Guest’s scheduled arrival date, since check-in information will have been provided previously online by the Guest, they may experience a streamlined check-in at select Walt Disney World® Resort hotels or Disney Vacation Club resorts. A welcome folder with their Key to the World Card will be waiting at a designated Disney’s Online Check-In area in the resort hotel lobby. Guests will need to present valid photo ID to pick up the folder and complete check-in. Guests may check-in online beginning 10 days prior to their arrival date. Web site addresses for Disney’s Online Check-In service will vary based on the original method of booking. As Guests are completing Disney’s Online Check-In service, select Guests will have an opportunity to apply for the Disney Rewards® Visa Card® that could be used during their stay. This service launches in January, 2009.
An interesting twist on the recession – the travel insurance that Disney sells with vacation packages now includes coverage for losing your job, as well as deployment. As always, be sure to read and comprehend the full policy before agreeing to purchase it.
