Summer visits to Disney are a different animal. Why? Mostly because it’s HOT! That being said, keep in mind the following components to the perfect SUMMER vacation to a Disney theme park… Resort. You are going to want to pick a resort with a great pool, preferably one with a slide. My kids love a good slide, which means while they are climbing the stairs, I’m lounging in the shade! Tickets. If you are going to Disney during the summer, consider adding the water park option to your park tickets! Do consider it. Don’t think about it, just take the plunge. See [...]

5 Tips for Arrival Day at Walt Disney World

2016-09-13T06:00:34-04:00September 13, 2016|Disney World|0 Comments

For most travelers, your arrival time to Walt Disney World will not be first thing in the morning. Depending on where you are traveling from, you may arrive around lunch, or sometimes in the afternoon. I know you may be ready to start your vacation and ride some rides, but hang tight! If you are traveling with kids who have had to sit still for hours, the last thing they will want to do is stand in long afternoon lines for rides. Plus, it’s a shame to waste a whole day of park tickets for just a few hours, so [...]

My Disney Dining Bucket List

2016-03-11T06:00:32-05:00March 11, 2016|Disney World|0 Comments

  You know how sometimes you form habits and you do the same things over and over again? This happens to me with my Disney trips, every time without fail! I get stuck in my ways and eat at the same restaurants because I know they are good and that I like the menu offerings! So to break that habit (or at least try!), I created my Disney Dining Bucket List! Some I’ve been able to check off and some I’m still working on! Maybe you’ll find a new must-do for your next trip, too! Cinderella’s Royal Table – Magic [...]

The One Tip To Help Avoid Rookie Mistakes on Disney Trips

2016-02-29T06:00:52-05:00February 29, 2016|Disney World|0 Comments

A few short years ago, I was in the midst of one of the happiest – and most stressful - times of my life! I was planning a wedding AND a Disney vacation at the same time! Looking back, I think I spent more time worrying about the honeymoon at Disney World than I worried about the actual wedding! We had booked our vacation with a local travel agent – her services began and ended with making sure our resort and flights were taken care of, so I was left to plan all the details myself. Now, full disclosure – [...]

Savannah view room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort

2013-09-27T07:00:44-04:00September 27, 2013|Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort, Disney World, Resorts|0 Comments

Heather and I recently spent two nights at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort.  Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort has 1293 guest rooms, all rooms are non-smoking, and there are disabled accessible rooms available. We were in room 4315 which was located on the 4th floor and we had a Savannah View.  The rooms are darker than I would have liked but I loved the theming and the wallpaper around the sinks was adorable.  The bed was comfortable, the wifi worked, and the room was very clean. Heather and I were testing the new MagicBands and had them all set up and ready [...]

Coronado Springs Resort March 2012

2012-04-07T17:29:25-04:00April 7, 2012|Disney World|0 Comments

I stayed at Coronado Springs Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort in March 2012 before sailing on the Disney Fantasy. The rooms were nice and I liked the color story over the older look they used to have but the rooms did feel small to me. (but I am used to staying at the Grand Floridian Resort) This resort was spread out and they have a large convention center. I had lunch at the food court one day and the food and service was very good. My biggest issues were the WIFI which was very spotty and the cell [...]

Disney resorts finally getting better TV line up

2012-03-10T18:46:47-05:00March 10, 2012|Disney News, Disney World|1 Comment

All I can say is FINALLY!! I love going to Disney and we don't spend alot of time in the room watching TV but when we do there lack of channel options is pretty bad. When I was at the Grand Floridian Resort in January the RPC CM's were telling us this was coming. As I was surfing the web today I was this posted in a thread on the DIS. Here is a list of some of the new channels: AMC, Bravo, Discovery, Fox News, HGTV, History Channel, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel, TLC, Food Network, TV Land, and SyFy. [...]
