Theme Park Hack: No Plate? No Problem!

I am always on the look out for Theme Park Hacks that can help make our day in the Park more enjoyable!

You may ask what is a Theme Park Hack?

 

 

A Theme Park Hack is when you take ordinary thing and use it at it is not intended for an extraordinary outcome. This is not about breaking rules or cheating the system, just little quirky things that I like to do.

Theme Park Hack: No Plate? No Problem!

Zoe is really particular about how she eats her food, and her main issue happens when we are grabbing a quick bite to eat in the parks.

Typically food is served in paper baskets, and since she is not the neatest of eaters she usually knocks over the basket a few times spilling stuff everywhere.

So instead of taking the food out and placing it on the tray or on napkins, here is how I like to make a plate out of a paper basket at Quick Service Restaurants!

If you look at the corners of the basket, you will notice that they’re just glued together.

Gently (and carefully depending on how full of food your basket is), separate the corners.

Smooth them out, and BAM! you’ve got yourself a plate!

Theme Park Hack

Pretty simple, but it has been a great trick for our family that has made meals on the go easier!

Do you have any Theme Park Hack that you or your family uses? We would love to hear about them!!!

In the small entrance many perks are featured such as  your discounts on Sammy Duval’s Water Centre and Disney Florist and Owners locker.  After you enter the snacks and lemonade are over at the corner bar for you to get.

Welcome Home Wednesday

The event started with a slinky game, one of the contestants was named Walt so there were many disney jokes. Everyone who played received a pin,  Then after there was a feature on membership perks. One of the audience was sad that most of the perks information has gone online*, but we were reminded that DVC members can get restaurant savings when they join Tables In Wonderland.

Welcome Home Wednesday

The next game was that you had to guess the answer that your partner would guess.  Kelly and Shelley volunteered to play, unfortunately they didn’t win but everyone got a pin.

The next game was building a snowman with golf balls, one contestant got very close, again both people won a pin.

The final game is that you had to try and get a cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands, one person won, again both contestants  got a pin.

The last giveaways they used a basket to pick winners of prizes, the prizes were:

  • A mug with flowers from the Disney Florist
  • A gift certificate to Sammy Duval’s for parasailing
  • A gift certificate to Senses Spa
  • A year membership Owner’s Locker
  • A ride along at the Richard Petty Speedway

Welcome Home Wednesday

After that the event was over, you were given an Animal Kingdom Lodge Hat.

We had a lot of fun playing games and laughing! Welcome Home Wednesday is a great way to spend some time outside of the park with fellow Disney Vacation Club Members.
