The Atlantis-Paradise Island, Bahamas

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Paradise. Well, Paradise Island in the Bahamas, but it’s pretty close to Paradise! You’ve seen this hotel in movies and on commercials. It’s made to look like as though it rose from the ocean. It’s a very large resort with beautiful architecture. There is some of the bluest water in the world in the Bahamas. One of my friends even called it “Aqua Marine” and I believe she is right! There are also [...]

2015-03-03T14:35:24-04:00

Being a Non-Runner at a runDisney Race

2015-03-03T14:32:34-04:00

Last month I participated in my very first runDisney event, the Enchanted 10k during Princess Half Marathon Weekend! Now, let me preface this by saying I am NOT an athletic person! As much as I’d like to be, I’ve just never had it in me! So when I signed up for the Enchanted 10k, I was super excited, but as the trip neared, I started to freak out a little. I’d never done more than an untimed 5k in my [...]

2015-03-04T11:49:43-04:00

An Autograph-ed Book At every street cart, ride exit, and shop at any Disney Park, you will find the exclusive and official Autograph book, complete with matching pen.  The first time my daughter was old enough to appreciate getting the characters’ signatures, that’s exactly what we bought.  I even bought the one that had slots for 4x6 pictures so I could put her pictures with the characters in the book right next to their autographs (like I ever have pictures actually [...]

The Most Important Ride at Animal Kingdom

2015-03-01T16:50:27-04:00

  If you only have time to visit one attraction at Animal Kingdom, it should be…. Kilimanjaro Safaris! This ride has something for everyone. It is tame enough for small children to ride, yet thrilling enough to be enjoyed by teens and adults.  In addition to being fun, Kilimanjaro Safaris is also informative. I learned (and remembered!) the difference between a reticulated and a Masai giraffe, what a Greater Kudu looks like, and so much more.  The underlying message of [...]
