Earlier this month, the lucky winners of Disney Destinations, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Australia’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Mega Fam jet-setted from Australia and New Zealand to Florida for six magical nights at the phenomenal Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
Here the agents spent 6 unforgettable days exploring the 40-square miles of Walt Disney World Resort including visits to all four world-class Theme Parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Some also cooled down at the Resorts Two Water Parks: Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach. And all thirteen enjoyed savouring delicious food, and shopping at exciting new retailers such as Zara and Sephora now open at the on-site shopping and entertainment precinct, Disney Springs.
Highlights of the Famil experience included the multiple night-time entertainment offerings such as Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and the ALL-NEW Star Wars: A Galactic Fireworks Spectacular. Agents also took off on a wild ride through the African Savannah on the new Sunset Kilimanjaro Safari Expedition, floated off to Elsa’s Ice Palace in the new ride experience Frozen Ever After and relished in trying some delicious food at the annual Epcot Food and Wine Festival.
But the real ‘treat’ of the itinerary was the opportunity to hang out with Mickey, Minnie and the whole Disney gang at the one and only Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Here agents dressed in costumes and trick or treated through over 20 chocolate and candy distribution locations across the Magic Kingdom while enjoying exclusive Halloween themed entertainment including theHocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular, and the amazing Happy HalloWishes Fireworks event.
