2018 DVC Exclusive Moonlight Magic Event at Magic Kingdom (Compared to 2017)

After attending several Moonlight Madness events in 2017 (Magic Kingdom in February, Typhoon Lagoon in July and Epcot in December), we were happy to hear they were going to continue the events into 2018.

Briefly, the Moonlight Madness events are special, after-hours events at Disney parks (they do them at Disneyland, too!) specifically for select members of Disney Vacation Club (DVC) and their guests. DVC, as Disney’s version of a timeshare, can cost significantly less when you purchase points on the secondary market (as opposed to buying them directly from Disney). To make buying DVC points from Disney more valuable, these Moonlight Madness events have been running since 2016 as a perk that’s reserved for those who’ve purchased points directly from them and not from the secondary market.

We were especially looking forward to this event at the Magic Kingdom (MK), since we had been to the 2017 Moonlight Madness event at that park and wanted to see how they had changed from one year to the next. I’m happy to report that Disney did not disappoint!

The Amusement Park In China That’s A Total Disney Ripoff

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But when a theme park in China has obvious copies of a WHOLE LOT of Disney parks, I’d say it goes way beyond flattery and more into copyright infringement.

How To Get Discounted Disney Tickets From Your Employer

Getting discounted tickets to Disney theme parks is pretty hard to do. We’ve written about some of the ways you can get legitimate reduced price tickets as well as listed the things you shouldn’t do. Imagine how surprised I was that one perfectly legal and ethical way to get cheaper theme park tickets was right under my nose; I could get them from my employer.

Now I’m not talking about the golden days of the long-gone Magic Kingdom Club program, where you could get discounted Disney World hotel packages with park tickets, dining tickets and entertainment vouchers for huge discounts. It’s been over fifteen years since that program was eliminated and I missed it so much when it went away.
