The Magic Kingdom is the heart and soul of Walt Disney World. This is where you can rocket through space, hop on the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness and splash 13 stories down into a Briar Patch. You can spin on tea cups, ride a mine train to see the Seven Dwarfs and fire laser guns to defeat the evil Emperor Zurg. As fun as all of that is, there are a few quieter attractions here that you’ll want to be sure not to miss. These may not spin you around, make you lose your stomach or get you wet [...]

Little Details at the Disneyland Resort

2015-12-28T06:00:00-05:00December 28, 2015|Disneyland|0 Comments

One major difference between Disneyland and other amusement parks is the huge amount of detail put into the smallest of details. When creating Disneyland, Walt wanted a place that took you out of your everyday world and made everything you saw take you back to a specific place and time, and with his team’s help, he ensured that he got every magical detail right. And the most amazing part of all of these efforts is that, unless you’re looking closely, you will miss most of them. Upon entering the park, you can’t miss the giant Mickey face in the flower [...]

The Details of Disney

Maybe that’s why the Disney experience is so wonderful, because it’s so immersive. When you’re in line for a ride, you can look around and notice all the details of the décor. If you’re in the [...]

Cafe Orleans at Disneyland Park

2014-12-03T06:00:00-05:00December 3, 2014|Dining, Disneyland, Disneyland|0 Comments

Located in the heart of New Orleans Square, Cafe Orleans serves up delicious creole-cajun cuisine with a charming atmosphere. Home to the famous Monte Cristo sandwich, this picturesque restaurant offers scrumptious entrees and beautiful vistas. Cafe Orleans is a great alternative to the Blue Bayou. It is easier to get a reservation and comes at a cheaper price. While Cafe Orleans doesn’t offer views of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, guests can view a much larger ship – the Sailing Ship Colombia! Princess Tiana also makes appearances in New Orleans, so you may catch a glimpse of her walking by [...]

Top Rides for Teens

2014-07-14T07:00:00-04:00July 14, 2014|Disney World|0 Comments

Considering a trip to Disney World, but think your kids are too old? Well think again, Disney offers a lot more than princesses and parades that will make those hard to please teens actually smile. Not all of the rides on my list are “thrill rides” in fact a couple of them don’t have a height requirement at all, however having traveled with both tweens and teens these rides are always on their “must-do” list each time we visit. So without further ado and in no particular order I hope you enjoy my “Top Rides for Teens.” Big Thunder Mountain-Magic [...]
