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

2024-01-03T15:26:57-05:00October 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 [...]

Love Your Wait Time for Peter Pan’s Flight

2015-11-02T06:00:00-05:00November 2, 2015|Disney World, Magic Kingdom|0 Comments

I have a five-year-old son, so the first ride we run to when rope drops at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is Peter Pan’s Flight. If you’ve never been, this ride is located in Fantasyland across from It’s A Small World, and it is very different from traditional rides at Disney World. The ride track is above your head and you fly in a pirate ship looking down at all the popular scenes from the Peter Pan movie. Everyone loves this ride, especially the thousands of guests with you at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. On busy days, wait times for Peter [...]

Walt Disney World – Not Just Any Theme Park

2015-05-22T06:00:00-04:00May 22, 2015|Disney World|0 Comments

We all love theme parks – the rides and food and time spent with friends and family. But Walt Disney World is special. It’s so much more than just roller coasters and funnel cakes. While you can find both in its 40 square miles there are a few things you may not know about this magical place…. Magic Kingdom: You won’t find anyone walking around taking out the trash. Pipes shoot the trash through the utilidors under the Magic Kingdom at 60 mph. Speaking of trash check out the trash cans. They are themed to the different areas of each [...]

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort – more than just a place to sleep!

2023-10-23T16:32:14-04:00March 5, 2014|Disney World, Resorts|0 Comments

When you visit Walt Disney World in Florida, it’s tempting to fill every day with the great theme parks and water parks. But it’s a great idea to slow down and experience a day just exploring your resort hotel, too. I did this recently at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and found that they have a lot to offer for a peaceful day off! We started with a walk around the lobby. We enjoyed the great fireplace with its interesting decorative touches (the hinges on the screen look like quivers of arrows!), the fountain and bridge, and the sets of dominoes that [...]
