Stuck On Frozen

2014-04-27T16:46:50-04:00

With the DVD release of Frozen, it has made me realize just how incredibly popular this movie is!

The appeal of Elsa and her sister, Anna is a little mind-boggling to me. I cannot remember a princess (or in this case, a [...]

Showing My #DisneySide

2014-04-27T16:50:28-04:00

I knew exactly what kind of party I wanted to throw too – a Disney themed Bunco party! Bunco is a fun dice game and rules can vary depending on where you live or the makeup of your group (Google to find rules that appeal most to you). My [...]

2019-06-03T14:10:18-04:00

On my last trip to Walt Disney World, I discovered a hidden gem of a restaurant that I want to share with you. But, please don’t tell TOO many people….this is like one of those local places you love that you want to keep small and not too crowded! A few months ago we drove down to Walt Disney World for a quick trip and stayed at Old Key West, which is Disney’s first Vacation Club resort. Anyone can stay [...]

Chefs de France Restaurant at Epcot’s France Pavilion

2014-03-25T19:53:48-04:00

The France pavilion in Epcot is one of my favorite places in all of Walt Disney World. I love walking along the sidewalks and back into the gardens and buildings (especially at night) and taking in the French music, architecture and atmosphere. Another reason I love this pavilion is Chefs de France. This has become a must dining experience for our family over the years. Chefs de France is located right at the front of the pavilion and serves both [...]

The Animation Academy is located in the Animation Courtyard. Just head down Hollywood Boulevard and take a right at The Hat! As you enter the studio, each guest is seated at a Mickey lighted drawing table, with a piece of paper and pencil. [...]
