2021-09-24T08:18:07-04:00September 23, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

50 Years of Walt Disney World ~ Pure Disney Magic I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how I would try and explain to you what Walt Disney World celebrating her 50th anniversary means to me.  A lot of time.  It’s taken me a while because, honestly, I don’t know that I can put my true feelings about it into words.  Walt Disney World isn’t just a place to me; it’s an experience.  It’s the Disney version of magic – fantasy becomes a reality.  And that Disney Magic has touched my life during many different seasons.  Some of those [...]

You have officially booked your Walt Disney World vacation; you may be wondering, “what’s next?” With the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, the planning timeline looks completely different from previous years.  While the timeline looks different, all of the planning pieces are still there.  Early booking is still best: Better resort and room availability Park reservations are required through 2023 I am monitoring for discounts to get you the best price possible. Planning a WDW vacation is exciting, but you may find yourself twiddling your thumbs, waiting for the next planning puzzle piece to reveal itself.  One way you [...]

2021-03-17T19:36:17-04:00March 5, 2021|Disney Travel, Disney World, Resorts|0 Comments

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 [...]

Returning to the Magic – A Review of Walt Disney World September 2020

Since reopening in July, many guests have made their way back to Walt Disney World to a new kind of magic. I had a trip planned for April 2020, which was canceled due to the closure, so I was very excited to get back to the action myself! Since I’m a Florida resident (for the next few months anyway), it was easy to plan a quick 3-night trip back down to Orlando at the end of September. I wanted to share my review of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, new safety policies and procedures at the parks and resorts, dining procedures, and [...]
