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 [...]

Reach out and find your Happily Ever After

2021-10-15T10:07:47-04:00September 27, 2021|50th Anniversary, Disney World|0 Comments

Disney World has always been a special place to me - it was where I honeymooned, spent wedding anniversaries, celebrated milestones. When that marriage ended, the idea of never being able to visit Disney World again - a place that meant so much in that marriage - loomed over me like a dark cloud. Would I ever get my Disney certified happily ever after? But I did go back - and each time it got easier and more fun. In July 2017, I decided to go by myself on a spur of the moment trip. I booked my trip three [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

A Review of the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

2019-08-06T14:44:22-04:00August 6, 2019|Disney Travel, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Villains After Hours event at Magic Kingdom (so much fun!). While planning for the last minute trip, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to stay at the newly opened Gran Destino Tower located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. For those not familiar, Coronado Springs falls into the moderate resort category and is located in the Animal Kingdom resort area. It was originally opened in August 1997, boasting a blend of Spanish, Mexican, and American Southwest cultures. After living in New Mexico for six years, I can say the theming of the main [...]

9 Reasons Why You Will Love Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter

2019-07-15T18:45:52-04:00July 15, 2019|Disney Travel|0 Comments

Resort Size. Port Orleans French Quarter is the smallest moderate resort at Walt Disney World. The food court, arcade, pool, and bus stop are all a quick hop, skip, and a jump away from your resort room.  Boat transportation to Disney Springs. Sit back and relax as the Sassagoula Steamboat haulage company transports you and yours on a quick ride to Disney Springs along the picturesque, tree-lined banks of the Sassagoula River.  Sister Property. Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter are sister resorts, meaning you can use the amenities at each as you please! Better yet, they are a quick [...]

Savi’s Workshop

2019-06-13T09:36:11-04:00June 13, 2019|Hollywood Studios|0 Comments

Savi’s Workshop is a little bit hard to find.  Since the Black Spire Outpost is under the protection of the First Order, the Resistance and Force sensitive beings have to remain hidden and out of sight.  The only way to find the shop is by looking for the Blue Lightsaber Banner outside the store.                                 Savi is very important to the Force, and was one of the original Gatherers.  The Gatherers are a group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in [...]
