Documenting Life Through Disney ~ Cheers to 50 Years! 

2021-10-15T10:00:26-04:00October 1, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

Today, Walt Disney World turns FIFTY. Could there be a better day to reflect on my very own Disney journey? Unfortunately, I can hardly take the conjured magical nostalgia. Sigh… Walt Disney World has helped me document some of the most important transitions of my life. Unlike many of my Disney cohorts, my journey started 12 years ago. I didn’t visit as a child or even as a teenager. My first trip was planned to celebrate an extraordinary birthday, the 10th birthday of THE girl who was my first taste of motherhood. Needless to say, we had a BLAST! When [...]

Why do I love Walt Disney World?

2021-10-15T10:02:35-04:00September 28, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

                    Why do I love Walt Disney World? As I began to reflect on the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World, I started asking myself why I love this magical place so much.  I came up with a list of reasons, and I feel like they’re universally true.  I love Walt Disney World and keep returning there for the following five reasons: every trip is different, making memories, laughter, free to be like a child and, they provide an excellent product and service.  See if these same reasons don’t ring true in your Disney [...]

Sharing the Magic of Walt Disney World

2021-10-15T10:03:51-04:00September 26, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|1 Comment

Some of my earliest memories are from Walt Disney World (although not all of them are super magical, like when I got my head stuck in the balcony railing at the Polynesian Village Resort). My family visited for the first time in the mid-80s (there’s an ongoing debate between 1986 and 1987). I loved staying at the Poly with my grandparents, ordering room service, and dining with the characters.                   Even as a little kid, I knew there was magic just in helping others to believe in the wonders of the parks. [...]

Magic Moments at Disney World

2021-10-15T10:05:04-04:00September 25, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

I grew up watching Disney films; Pocahontas and Snow White were my favorites. When I was 10 years old, my family and I made our first trip to Walt Disney World to celebrate 2000! I fell in love with the magic and the characters. Disney became my favorite vacation spot at that point. It was a part of me. In 2013, my now husband and I traveled to Walt Disney World on what would be his first trip. He proposed on that trip, right in front of Cinderella's Castle just before the fireworks. It was the most magical moment - [...]

The Magic of Disney

2021-10-15T10:06:16-04:00September 24, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

For as long as I can remember, Disney has always been a part of my life. I remember going to the movies with my Grandma Jo in Denver and seeing the newest Disney movie, all while Grandma snored next to me. Or chasing my other grandparents’ dog around the yard with my new Roger Rabbit stuffed animal and Benny the Cab box. Or the Beauty and the Beast sweater that had the printed rose leggings that I refused to get rid of, even though I never wore it because it was so itchy. But I didn’t get to experience the [...]

50 Years of Walt Disney World ~ Pure Disney Magic

2021-09-26T08:02:57-04:00September 23, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|2 Comments

50 Years of Walt Disney World ~ Pure Disney Magic I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how I would try and explain to you what Walt Disney World celebrating her 50th anniversary means to me.  A lot of time.  It’s taken me a while because, honestly, I don’t know that I can put my true feelings about it into words.  Walt Disney World isn’t just a place to me; it’s an experience.  It’s the Disney version of magic – fantasy becomes a reality.  And that Disney Magic has touched my life during many different seasons.  Some of those [...]

Returning to the Magic – A Review of Walt Disney World September 2020

2020-10-06T18:47:13-04:00October 6, 2020|Animal Kingdom, Disney Travel, Disney World, Galaxy Edge, Hollywood Studios, Resorts|0 Comments

Since reopening in July, many guests have made their way back to Walt Disney World to a new kind of magic. I had a trip planned for April 2020, which was canceled due to the closure, so I was very excited to get back to the action myself! Since I’m a Florida resident (for the next few months anyway), it was easy to plan a quick 3-night trip back down to Orlando at the end of September. I wanted to share my review of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, new safety policies and procedures at the parks and resorts, dining procedures, and [...]
