Venice’s lagoon, with its charming waterways and maze of narrow passages, is the favorite destination of millions of tourists from all over the world. From this year, it might cost a little more to visit the Italian city which, fearing to look and be perceived more and more as a theme park, decided to put an entry ticket. Every year Venice gets overrun by tourists, around 30 million people invading the ancient city built on numerous little islands in the Venetian lagoon. Last year, du...

The biggest news at Disney World for 2019 – really, the biggest theme park news in years – will be the debut of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

But there are many other cool things on the way to Mickey’s Florida mega-resort in the coming year.
The Mouse has been doling out details about the Star Wa...

Holiday crowds typically jam the Magic Kingdom to the point that The Mouse often lifts its drawbridge (metaphorically) and closes its gates (literally) to all but those staying at its hotels when it reaches capacity on one or two days during that week. The Florida theme park resort i...

Anyone who visits Disneyland during the holidays knows that the theme park didn’t invent Christmas cheer. It perfected it. From a towering holiday tree to the wreaths and lights that drip from any real estate capable of supporting decorations, Disneyland is the center of the yule-universe. It wasn’t always this way. In December 1955, workers put up a modest tree and a few wreaths for the park’s first Christmas, acknowledging the holiday rather than celebrating it. It would be a...

You’ve done the research, combined it with common sense and picked the perfect time to visit Disneyland in order to beat the crowds: midweek in the dead of winter. Yet you’re at the end of a 90-minute line for Space Mountain, wondering what the heck happened.

Its seasonal decorations and special events boost attendance, and its secret weapon is its frequently visiting ...

Ticket prices at Walt Disney World will vary based on the date picked with a new online planning tool debuting next month. Disney World officials said Monday that prices at the resort’s four themes parks-Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot-will be tweaked next month so they’re the same instead of the Magic Kingdom having a higher price. Disney introduced flexible pricing at U.S. parks three years ago as an incentive for guests to visit during less busy times. E...
