5 Tips to Help Get You Out Your Disney Resort Door AND to Rope Drop

2018-02-13T06:00:04-05:00February 13, 2018|Disney News|0 Comments

    First and foremost, what the heck is rope drop and why, oh why do I want to get up early on my Disney vacation to get there? Rope drop is Disney lingo for park opening. The reason why you want and should get up early (sigh... I know, I know!) to get to rope drop is because you will experience lighter crowds the first few hours of park opening. This means your family will be able to experience more attractions/rides with lesser wait times! Score! I myself am cursed blessed with early-rising kids. We have no problems getting [...]

The Best Attraction in Harambe Part 1: The History of Kilimanjaro Safaris

2023-10-06T22:22:11-04:00February 6, 2018|Animal Kingdom|0 Comments

Walt Disney was an animal lover and it was always his dream to have live animals in the parks. In fact, the original concepts of the Jungle Cruise and the Enchanted Tiki Room had live animals instead of the audio-animatronics that you see today. Unfortunately, Imagineers at that time couldn’t find a safe way to use live animals in an attraction. In April 1998, Walt’s dream was finally brought to life when Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida opened its gates. Animals from all over the world were brought to the park to showcase their beauty and educate guests of the [...]

The Best Restaurants You Don’t Need a Reservation For

2023-10-30T16:49:08-04:00May 2, 2016|Dining, Disney Travel, Disney World|0 Comments

  It’s a known fact that to get the first pick of reservation times at Disney restaurants, you have to book them six months in advance. But sometimes, we don’t always have the luxury of knowing when we are going to be on vacation, which often leads to a lack of availability at table service restaurants the closer it gets to your vacation dates! Quick service restaurants to the rescue! Not all theme park food consists of boring burgers, hot dogs, and French fries. Disney dining can be fun and adventurous – you just have to know where to go!

2023-09-29T18:30:39-04:00March 18, 2016|Disney Travel, Disney World|0 Comments

One of the many benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel is complimentary transportation between your resort and Disney theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs and other Disney resort hotels. Disney moves millions of guests each year using a very well run transportation system which includes buses, boats and monorails. While it may sound intimidating, navigating the different transportation options is actually quite simple (and fun)! Boats (also referred to as Water Launches or Water Taxis) Disney’s fleet of boats ranges from smaller water taxies to large ferries and everything in between. Simply look for the signs [...]
