Secrets of Epcot

2014-01-28T16:41:03-04:00

Now that we’ve taken a look at some of the Imagineering secrets and little known facts of the Magic Kingdom lands let’s hop on a monorail over and explore Epcot. Fun facts abound here as well! The sidewalks twinkle at night. Take the path to the right after the Spaceship Earth and you’ll see them. The gardens throughout Epcot are the most extensive in all of Walt Disney World and are cared for by a team of 700 horticulturists. Spaceship [...]

The Benefits of Being Florida Resident Passholder at Disney World

2014-01-08T20:41:23-04:00

My family has been Florida seasonal passholders since 2002. We live two hours south from Disney World and try to go as often as we can. There are different options on the type of passes you can purchase as a Florida resident. We choose The Seasonal Pass, which is blocked out during the busiest times of the year. As a family we prefer to go during the off season. The different types of Florida Annual Passes are: Premium Annual Pass, [...]

Tokyo Dining

2014-01-08T20:33:57-04:00

It's no secret my favorite park to visit is Epcot and one of my favorite things to do at Epcot is... eat! Where else can you go from country to country sampling cuisine from around the World? You pretty much can't go wrong with any of the restaurants at Epcot and it's nice to have so many to choose from which makes it easier to land a reservation. My family had dined at Teppan Edo several times and we really [...]

My Family’s take on Transformers the Ride – Universal Studios

2014-01-08T20:30:19-04:00

We headed to Universal Studios eager to start our day off saving the world as we rode one of Universal Studios newest attractions, Transformers the Ride 3D. As we approached the ride, my kids were excited when we encountered a large figure of Optimus Prime towering over the ride entrance. We grabbed our 3D glasses and jumped into our Autobot vehicle ready to help our transformer friends make the world a safer place. Let me start by saying Universal Studios [...]

Diaper bag tips for your next Disney trip

2014-01-08T20:14:40-04:00

Wondering what to pack in your diaper bag for an awesome day at Disney? Check out my top ten tips for packing your diaper bag! 1. Use a back pack instead of a typical diaper bag. Disney buses do NOT allow you to push your strollers directly onto the bus. You must fold it and hold your children on the seat next to you or on your lap. A back pack will help facilitate a smooth transportation transition. You can [...]

The Writer’s Stop

2014-01-08T20:06:16-04:00

Disney has a secret in Hollywood Studios, and it’s called the Writer’s Stop! The Writer’s Stop is the perfect replica of a little neighborhood coffee shop. It’s disguised to blend right in: you might even mistake it for just like another studio storefront! Don’t bother to stop and check the map, because you won’t find it listed! Circle Marks the Spot, for the Writer’s Stop! It is nestled right behind the Tatooine Traders and right next door to the Sci-Fi [...]

Preserving Memories with Disney’s Memory Maker

Memory Maker includes unlimited digital downloads of all pictures taken by Disney’s PhotoPass photographers during you trip.

Beyond the Autograph Book

2013-11-26T13:16:43-04:00

Whether it’s your first trip Disney or your tenth you know your kids need something for the characters to autograph. While Disney has a wide variety of autograph books ranging from the Fab Five to Princesses, I found myself trying to think of something different so we didn’t have a shelf devoted to them. So like most Moms I went to my two favorite sites: Etsy and Pinterest and here are few ideas we’ve personally tried! First, is a picture [...]
