Radio Disney (AM 1290 in Richmond), the #1 radio network for kids, tweens and families, is coming to town to celebrate its 15th anniversary. From November 18-20, 2011, Lansdowne Resort will host a fun-filled weekend of non-stop partying with music, games and prizes for the entire family. But, you have to take advantage of this special overnight package in order to participate in the events that are scheduled.
We've been on-the-go since the beginning of the school year. The family has hardly had a chance to relax, have fun, and enjoy each other. So, we're heading to Lansdowne Resort this weekend to take a quick, but much need break. It's a little over an hour's drive, located 30 minutes from Washington, DC and seven miles from Dulles International Airport. At least we won't have to sit in the car for a long period of time. Kaden is bringing his cousin along for the ride and I know they are going to have a ball.
Kaden works hard and is constantly busy–– plays sports, plays an instrument, sings in the chorus, attends an after-school math club, reads a lot, and is an honor roll student. As parents, we figured the least we could do was give him a break and allow him to be a kid. Work hard. Play harder!
We are huge Disney and music fans, so having Radio Disney host a party brings the best of both worlds together. Not to mention, a world of fun.
The November 19th Radio Disney Family Fun package includes (family of 4):
•Deluxe accommodations with two double beds for November 19 (additional nights can be added for $99/night)
•Radio Disney Family Fun Gift bag at check-in
•Milk and Cookies amenity
•Meet Sharkie, Lansdowne Resort’s mascot at check-in

There's more! Parents, you do not have to feel like the weekend is all about the children. Lansdowne Resort is graciously offering a discount of $25 off any spa service or treatment. If golf is your thing, enjoy a wonderful discount of $50/round/person, with complimentary use of driving range and putting green.
If you want to make this a mini-vacation, add an extra night to the package, and check-in on Friday, November 18 for an additional $99 (plus $20 resort fee). The family can enjoy a free children’s movie with snacks in the Amphitheatre, and the resort’s indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center, 45-holes of championship golf designed by Greg Norman and Robert Trent Jones, a world-class, full service Spa Minerale, and Kid Friendly dining (children under 6 eat free) in any of our five restaurants. The $99/night (plus resort fee) is also available on Sunday, November 20.
Considering the resort’s rack rate is usually $250, without all the Disney fun, I'd say this package and its discounts is a real steal!
If your family has any free time and can pry the children from the fun at the resort, there are other local attractions that may catch your attention. Lansdowne Resort is located in Loudoun County, a short drive from Washington, DC, just minutes from Interstate 495 and Route 66 and 267. Other nearby attractions include Civil War battlefields, plantation homes and gardens, shopping, Smithsonian Air & Space Annex and 30 award-winning wineries.

*Must purchase package to attend Disney events. Not open to the public. Note to Parents: No actual MUPPETS or characters will attend the party. The PJ Party is a celebration of “The Muppets”, releasing into theaters this Thanksgiving.

My family and I received complimentary accommodations for the Radio Disney Family Fun package event at Lansdowne Resort. Some additional activities will be paid out-of-pocket. There was no monetary compensation for writing this post. The opinions and views are my own.
