Returning to the Land Walt Built

2024-01-03T14:34:16-05:00May 7, 2021|Disney Travel, Disneyland|0 Comments

While I love Walt Disney World, there is something special about Disneyland. Being able to walk the same pathways as Walt himself is a remarkable feeling. I visited Disneyland for the first time in 2015 for the 60th anniversary and immediately fell in love. Last December, my family moved to Monterey, California. We frequently move for my husband’s job and have had the opportunity to live in some beautiful places over the years. In July 2020, we found out California would be our next destination, and to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. We had been in Florida for [...]

“There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day.” These words of hope and optimism open the longest running stage show in the history of American theater – Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress.

In 1975 the show was moved to Walt Disney World where it remains [...]

A Disney Version of the 1950’s: 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Hollywood Studios

2014-07-16T07:00:00-04:00July 16, 2014|Hollywood Studios|0 Comments

Many consider the 1950’s to be the good old days. Dinner featured home cooking served on Formica table tops in kitchens with black and white checkerboard floors and some very interesting wallpaper. Disney brings meal time during the 1950’s back to life at 50’s Prime Time Café located at Hollywood Studios. The lobby area screams 1950’s decor – from dark wood paneling to vinyl chairs to kitschy knick knacks and figurines. Like most of Hollywood Studios this is an idealistic representation of a bygone era. Once seated you will find the décor spills over into the table areas. Seating is [...]

Family Cruising on Disney Cruise Line

2014-06-19T07:00:00-04:00June 19, 2014|Disney Cruise Line|0 Comments

From the moment you arrive at the port, you’ll notice something about Disney Cruise Lines – it’s all about family. With the creation of Disney Cruise Lines, the company wanted to keep true to Walt Disney’s original vision for the parks. They wanted to create a place where families could come together to play, but also have wonderful options for adults to relax and enjoy some alone time. One thing that Disney does differently from other cruise lines is the staggered port arrival times. When you complete your online check-in, you will select your port arrival time window. This will [...]

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It: Why You Need a Vacation

2014-03-28T07:00:00-04:00March 28, 2014|Disney Travel|0 Comments

More and more people are not going on family vacations. It’s easy to assume this has to do with dispensable income and the growing income gap in our country or some other perfectly legitimate economic explanation but the plain hard truth is we just aren’t getting around to it. Financially, we aren’t saving for quality vacation time as a family, time-wise we aren’t prioritizing the experiences we can share only in a vacation setting and most importantly we feel we don’t have the skills, time or money to choose, plan and execute a valuable vacation--we aren’t seeing “vacation” as a [...]
