Beyond the Autograph Book

2016-01-28T17:55:42-04:00

No matter where the destination, one essential tool for each Disney vacation is something for your favorite characters to sign. While the gift stores offer many standard autograph books, I found myself trying to think of something different so we didn’t have a shelf devoted to them. So like many Moms I went to my two favorite sites: Etsy and Pinterest and here are few ideas we’ve personally tried! Picture frame mat I purchased at our local Hobby Lobby.   Because [...]

    Disneyland versus Disney World, some may think the two are one in the same, but they couldn’t be more wrong. While these two share many characteristics, in other ways they couldn’t be more opposite, starting with their location. Disney World is located in Orlando, Florida but you’ll have to travel 2,496 miles West to arrive in Anaheim, California home of Disneyland.

Saying Goodbye To The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

2015-12-16T19:42:08-04:00

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is saying farewell to the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. This magnificent event has been a holiday tradition at Hollywood Studios for the past 20 years. It all started when the Osborne family from Arkansas offered Disney their light display. Each year the family’s light display grew bigger and more elaborate until it grew too big for their home. So in 1995 they handed over their display to Disney which became a permanent holiday exhibition for [...]

Why Park Hopper Tickets are worth it (and when they aren’t)

2019-06-03T14:10:37-04:00

When planning your Disney vacation, one of the first decisions to make is whether or not to add the Park Hopper option to your park tickets. There are pretty much two types of people, those who park hop and those who don’t (and maybe a third group who doesn’t know the difference; if that’s you then keep reading!) Lately, it seems, I have worked with numerous families who said they NEVER get the Park Hopper because they ”don’t need it” [...]

The Barnstormer for first time coaster riders

2015-12-04T09:20:09-04:00

  Going to Disney World for the first time brining little ones is an amazing experience.   Just because you love Space Mountain or Splash Mountain doesn’t mean that should be the first ride you take your little ones on. We all crawl before we walk and I think you should do that same with rides. The last thing you want to happen on a 6 day trip to Disney World is your child is too scared to go on any [...]

Disney’s Crystal Palace Restaurant in Magic Kingdom

2015-12-03T13:14:50-04:00

Dining experiences are a big part of any vacation to Walt Disney World. There are so many restaurants with different types of cuisine, and lots of different character meals as well. One of my favorite restaurant experiences is The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. This is a Table Service buffet, and offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It features the characters from Winnie the Pooh: Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet.   During your meal, each character will stop at your table [...]

FerryTale Wishes Fireworks Dessert Cruise

In October, I surprised my mom with a fireworks cruise for her 60th birthday. I had been looking for a great idea of something special we could do while in Walt Disney World when I heard about the new cruise offering, and I immediately booked us a spot. Since these cruises are new, I had no idea what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised.   I was told we could board the boat an hour prior to Wishes, [...]

During my last trip to Disney World, I got to try the new D-Tech On Demand store in Magic Kingdom. The store, located next to the Space Mountain entrance in Tomorrowland, gives fans the opportunity to create really cool, personalized cell phones cases and/or MagicBands. There are lots of fun designs to choose from and the process is pretty simple. Disney offers the personalized cell phone cases for most iPhones (including the new iPhone 6s plus) and Samsung Galaxy S3/S4. [...]

My Favorite Time of Year at Walt Disney World

How to make a Disney Trip COLORING Countdown

2015-12-03T10:10:00-04:00

  A month before our Disney trip, my husband and I made the most grievous mistake. We almost paid for this mistake with our sanity. What did we do? We talked about our up and coming Disney trip in front of our three year old. (Cue collective gasp…) As soon as the first, “Are we going to Disney today?” came out of his mouth I knew we were in for it. It was going to be a LONG 32 days! [...]

With over twenty Disney resort hotels the choice of where to stay at Walt Disney World can be overwhelming.

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 [...]

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.

I know that some people can only go at certain times of the year and don’t have much choice, but if you can swing it, try to go in one of the value seasons (Parts of January and February, parts of September, etc.) Also, week nights are cheaper than weekends, so keep this in mind if you are only [...]
