Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party


I love fireworks! Who doesn’t? The fireworks displays at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom are legendary. They just keep getting better and better as technology improves.

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress


“There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day.” These words of hope and optimism open the longest running stage show in the history of American theater – Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. Located in Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom this show is said to be Mr. Disney’s personal favorite imagineering project. Carousel of Progress was originally featured at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. It was so popular that it was moved to Disneyland [...]

Liberty Tree Tavern Lunch


Tucked away in beautiful Liberty Square is a quaint little restaurant called Liberty Tree Tavern. Open for lunch and dinner in the Magic Kingdom, it’s a great spot to cool off, rest your feet, and fill your belly. The décor is very historical and has a colonial vibe, and the cast members wear adorable costumes. Each “room” has a name, and on this trip we were seated in the Ben Franklin room at my favorite table in the restaurant, a [...]

Disney After Hours


  Returning for select nights in early 2018 is the Disney After Hours event! I had the opportunity to attend this event earlier this year and I loved every minute! Disney After Hours is by far my favorite “extra” I’ve added on to my vacations in the last couple of years – I think you’ll love it, too! Disney After Hours is a hard-ticketed event, meaning it costs extra to attend, however a regular park ticket is not necessary – [...]

Top 10 Reasons to Camp at Fort Wilderness


Maybe you love the great outdoors, or maybe “glamping” is more your style. Either way, experience a different side of Disney – by camping at Fort Wilderness! I have a secret: my husband used to hate Disney. I dragged him on his first trip a few years ago, right after he came home from a military deployment. We stayed at one of the most crowded resorts and I made him stay in the parks from rope drop to park closing. [...]
