Have you ever visited Walt Disney World during the holiday season? It’s the “Most Magical Time of the Year” to visit!

My family just returned from spending a week at Walt Disney World and had an amazing time! Let me share some of our favorite holiday experiences from our 2020 trip. We stayed at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and it was beautifully decorated with a themed tree and holiday touches around the resort. The Poly is currently undergoing [...]

The holidays are just around the corner and I love visiting Walt Disney World when it’s all decked out for the season. The parks have added holiday touches like Christmas-themed character cavalcades, special treats, and beautiful decorations to capture the magic of the season. It’s the most magical time of the year to visit! During your vacation, it’s always a good idea to plan a day for a little downtime, so you can relax by the pool, do a little shopping and take a break to refresh a bit. During our day off from the parks, my family likes to [...]

Shadow Silhouettes

When someone mentions “Disneyland” or “Walt Disney World,” what’s the first thing that pops into your head? The price? Mickey Mouse? The castle? For me, it’s 2 things... churros and Mickey Mouse ears. Random, I know, but is there anything cuter than a little kid eating a churro while wearing their Mickey Mouse ears? The first time I went to Disney was as an adult, and let me tell you, my head is too big for their cute ear headbands and Mickey ears. This was devastating as I had always wanted them. Seeing that I was Queen of Hearts head [...]

Saratoga Springs with Kids

2023-10-04T17:48:26-04:00December 9, 2016|Disney Travel|0 Comments

Saratoga Springs often gets overlooked as a great resort to stay in because it is a couple minutes farther from the parks. In my opinion, there are more pros than cons and what is five more minutes of a drive or bus ride? Here are some reasons why Saratoga Springs is a great place to stay with kids   1.) Pools: There are several pools at Saratoga Springs, but our favorite was the pool in the Paddock section. There is a zero entry pool with a great big waterslide, and our favorite, a separate toddler play area that was totally [...]

2016-09-15T06:00:14-04:00September 15, 2016|Disney Travel|0 Comments

Disney’s Old Key West and Saratoga Springs Resorts There are 2 Resorts at Walt Disney World that often have last minute availability AND are cheaper per night than most other Deluxe Resorts. I get a lot of questions about these properties so here are some basic pros and cons about each. The bottom line: These are great options for large families, last minute travelers, and/or those wishing for a slower, relaxing Disney Vacation. Old Key West is the very first Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Resort. In fact, it used to be called THE Disney Vacation Club resort. Old Key West [...]

5 Tips for Arrival Day at Walt Disney World

2023-09-29T18:36:54-04:00September 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 [...]

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!
