Shadow Silhouettes

2019-08-19T19:08:59-04:00

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 [...]

Why, now more than ever, you should take your preschooler to Disney! Often times, I am told “I would love to go to Disney, it would just be too hard with our 2-year-old.”  Or “we want to go when they will remember it.”  I get it – I do.  When our oldest, Elizabeth, was 2, we thought about Disney but decided on a Disney Cruise instead.  There were of plethora of reasons why we chose a cruise over the most [...]

Disney’s All Star Music is a value resort at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

  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 [...]

Last month I participated in my very first runDisney event, the Enchanted 10k during Princess Half Marathon Weekend! Now, let me preface this by saying I am NOT an athletic person!

Disney Dream Portraits …. The Haunted Mansion

2012-08-03T11:47:46-04:00

Disney has released the latest Disney Dream portraits from famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.  I love these photos and one of the newest stars Jack Black, Will Ferrell, and Jason Segel as the Hitchhiking Ghosts.  Disney has released a video of the photo shoot: http://youtu.be/pOlkd-clBw8 And here is the photo!  I love it! “Where you can go on the ride of your afterlife.”

Art of Animation will take you to the movies – Part 2

Animation Hall When you enter Animation Hall you immediately feel a difference from other resorts on Disney Property. It's colorful and feels airy and large. The Hall consists of the Registration area as well as the "ink and paint shop" which carries all of the Disney merchandise and collectibles you could imagine. The arcade which is standard in every Disney resort, they never miss a beat to draw kids in! There is also a business center and currency exchange, airport check in and of course an ATM. However what I really want to focus on is the incredible "Landscape of Flavors" [...]
