Walt Disney Travel Company introduces 2007 Dream Vacation Packages during the Year of a Million Dreams
Dreams big and small come true during first-of-its kind celebration
ANAHEIM, Calif. (September 25, 2006) – During the Year of a Million Dreams at the Disneyland Resort, the Walt Disney Travel Company offers complete vacation packages to fulfill the dreams of guests of all ages.
The Year of a Million Dreams is a 15-month celebration centered on Disney’s heritage of making guests’ dreams come true. Throughout the Year of a Million Dreams, Disney Cast Members will grant more than one million dreams - both large and small, and including some "money-can't-buy" experiences - to guests selected at random through a unique "Disney Dreams Giveaway" promotion. Two extraordinary features of the Year of a Million Dreams will be special entertainment and programs to customize vacation experiences. Also, the celebration will feature the debut of the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, inspired by Disney Pixar's "Finding Nemo." This all-new "E-Ticket" adventure will take guests on a real (and unbelievable) underwater excursion.
Beginning January 3, 2007, a Disneyland Resort dream vacation booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company offers a variety of special benefits including the opportunity to join the Disney Characters in Mickey's Toontown Morning Madness. This interactive experience allows guests to spend time with their favorite Disney characters one hour before Mickey's Toontown opens to the general public, and also provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy rides and attractions. Early entry is also available for Fantasyland, where guests can enjoy such favorites as Peter Pan’s Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, King Arthur Carrousel and “it’s a small world.”
Each Walt Disney Travel Company package includes an exclusive Dream Coin, a keepsake sprinkled with pixie dust. Guests also receive a collectible pin and lanyard and a Downtown Disney District Fun Card that provides discounts to favorite Downtown Disney stores including House of Blues, Build-a-Bear Workshop, Club Libby Lu and more. All three-day/two-night Walt Disney Travel Company vacation packages include a Disneyland Resort Park Hopper souvenir ticket which is for admission to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure theme parks and preferred seating at four entertainment attractions in Disney’s California Adventure.
