The Details of Disney

2019-05-29T14:02:17-05:00

  I’m a detail-oriented person. I like to read all the instructions before beginning a task. I usually remember numbers easily and notice little things that maybe my family doesn’t pick up on. Maybe you’re that way, too. I know the Imagineers at Disney are! As I’ve walked through the parks, I’ve noticed the attention to details like no other place I’ve ever been. Maybe that’s why the Disney experience is so wonderful, because it’s so immersive. When you’re in [...]

What’s in a View?

2015-12-03T10:56:45-05:00

With over twenty Disney resort hotels the choice of where to stay at Walt Disney World can be overwhelming. Add to that the different view categories offered at each resort and it gets even more mind-boggling! In most cases rooms at a specific resort are exactly the same – the price difference comes with your view. A few exceptions to this are club level rooms at the deluxe resorts and the business class rooms at Coronado Springs resort which offer [...]

However, if that is not possible, here are some things that might help you decide which [...]

What Happens If It Rains During The Sailing Away Party?

2015-12-03T11:39:31-05:00

One of the most exciting things on the first day of a Disney cruise is the Sailing Away Deck party. We recently sailed on the Disney Dream and we were exited to attend the party on deck. The Sailing Away party is held after the mandatory life boat drill. After the drill we started to make our way to deck 11 for the party when it started to rain. We were so disappointed until the crew members told us not [...]

So, you have to find a way to turn reading, or the Reading Fair, into a challenge with an award for completing the book.  This move will create enthusiasm and engage your family in planning a vacation together!

Love Your Wait Time for Peter Pan’s Flight

2015-12-03T11:44:27-05:00

I have a five-year-old son, so the first ride we run to when rope drops at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is Peter Pan’s Flight. If you’ve never been, this ride is located in Fantasyland across from It’s A Small World, and it is very different from traditional rides at Disney World. The ride track is above your head and you fly in a pirate ship looking down at all the popular scenes from the Peter Pan movie. Everyone loves [...]
