Returning to the Land Walt Built

2021-05-07T22:19:28+00:00May 7, 2021|Disney Travel, Disneyland|0 Comments

While I love Walt Disney World, there is something special about Disneyland. Being able to walk the same pathways as Walt himself is a remarkable feeling. I visited Disneyland for the first time in 2015 for the 60th anniversary and immediately fell in love. Last December, my family moved to Monterey, California. We frequently move for my husband’s job and have had the opportunity to live in some beautiful places over the years. In July 2020, we found out California would be our next destination, and to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. We had been in Florida for [...]

It was exciting to plan our January 2021 vacation because this trip, for the first time, included family members from ages 9 to 84!  We needed just the right resort to fit everyone’s needs, and we found the right fit at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.  Not only does it have easy access to the Skyliner so that we could easily get to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but the rooms were spacious, and the activities were fun! We had 4 adults and 2 children traveling. Due to the size of our group, we were split into 2 separate rooms. When [...]

              Travel of any sort with kids in the mix has its challenges, but for many people, the thought of the whole family being trapped in the car for a day or more together sounds horrifying. I’m happy to fly with my kids, but there are times when it’s not the best option. I’ve made several 12+ hour road trips with my kids, one of whom is a toddler, in the past year. It might seem a little overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! One of the first things you can do [...]
