It pays to be Canadian

Canadian travellers have played a large part in the success of the tourism industry in Florida, and the folks at Walt Disney are recognizing our contribution. It may have something to do with the fact that Disney holds the marketing rights to the RCMP, but nevertheless, Canadians can now receive an exclusive “millennium ticket offer” at the Walt Disney World Resort.

From now until February, 2000, Canadians can pre-purchase a 7-Day Park Hopper Plus Pass and buy a second pass for half price. The pass offers seven days of admission to Disney’s four theme parks including Epcot, the focal point of their millennium celebration, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney-MGM Studios. It also includes four additional visits to Disney’s water parks, Downtown Disney Pleasure Island or Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex.

Disney’s World Millennium Celebration runs from October 1, 1999 until January 1, 2001 and the focal point is naturally Epcot. Highlights include:

  • Tapestry of Nations – An opening ceremony for the new millennium filled with 120 larger-than-life figures.
  • Millennium Village – Dozensf nations and international presenters will take part in the multicultural festivities at an all-new Epcot World Showcase pavilion.
  • Leave a Legacy – Guests also can literally leave their mark as a lasting memory of their millennium visit for an additional cost. Etched on a limited edition commemorative metallic tile, their photo is then mounted on one of 35 sculptured granite monoliths near Spaceship Earth.
  • Canada’s own Cirque du Soleil with its newest critically acclaimed production La Nouba performs in the heart of Downtown Disney West Side.

^The 7 Day Park Hopper Plus Pass ($289.00 US/adult $231.00 US/child plus Florida sales tax) and its 50% off companion pass must be purchased from and mailed to an address in Canada.
