Disney: Revisiting Liberty Tree Tavern


My son is a HUGE history buff. He especially loves American history and I knew he would love the theming of this restaurant. He hopes one day to be a Constitutional Lawyer.  He hadn’t been to Liberty Tree Tavern since he was three years-old. My daughter and I had been in 2015 and knew he…

Via Napoli


Hope you enjoy this post about Disney World while we are at the State Science Olympiad Competition this weekend. My son is competing in Fast Facts, Crime Busters, and Rocks and Minerals. GO SCIENCE! For some reason this is the first time we have really explored the Italy area in Walt Disney World. I don’t…

Raglan Road


This is one of our favorite stops. We try to make it here at least once every trip because my family loves it so much. The Irish dancers, the music, beer, and food are all perfect for this restaurant. We checked in a bit early and asked to be seated in the main dining room….

Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner – 1900 Park Fare


Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian offers a chance to meet with some of the characters from Cinderella that are harder to find in the parks. Cinderella and Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine (Cinderella’s step-mother), Anastasia and Drizella (Cinderella’s step-sisters) are normally in attendance.  On this night Drizella was…

Tomorrowland Terrace


My daughter wearing one of the 12 pair of Mickey ears she made for our trip. Even on vacation I tell our story through food. Each day we had at least one “special” meal. Whether it was something simple in a counter service restaurant like Tomorrowland Terrace, which is generally not open during the time…

Teppan Edo


    Teppan Edo is the Japanese Hibachi restaurant in the World Showcase in Epcot. My daughter and I had dinner at this restaurant two years ago on our mother/daughter trip to Walt Disney World. We loved it so much and thought the rest of the family would love it too. One thing that is great…

Garden Grill (Breakfast)


If you are planning a meal while visiting Disney World and looking for great character interaction this was one of our favorites on this trip. Though we are NOT breakfast eaters and generally do not enjoy breakfast foods I decided to book us a breakfast at the Garden Grill to get us up and moving…

ABC Commissary


We recently returned from our Walt Disney World vacation. We add the regular dining plan to our trip. This gives us 1 counter service meal, 1 table service meal, and 2 snacks each day per person. It also gives us a refillable mug to use at the resort. Disney is continually tweaking their meal plans….

Man Plans, God Laughs


I had every intention of posting each and every day while on vacation. Obviously, that did not happen. It was a wonderful vacation with lots of fun things and a few low points (everyone else got sick at some point and had to sit out a day or two of the parks). It was all…

Photopass at Walt Disney World


For years I resisted the Photopass add-on option for our Disney trips. When we would get home from vacation I would have 100s well, maybe 1000s of pictures and only 5-10 pictures with me in them. I don’t like getting my picture taken and I am the picture taker. I was always looking for the…

Disney’s All Star Music


We love Disney World and have stayed at every level of hotels from value resorts to deluxe. We like all the levels for different reasons. After wrestling with which hotel to book for our current trip either the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort or a family suite at All-Star Music Resort.  In the end…

Spring Break 2017


I have been missing the past few days as we were traveling for Spring Break. This is the first time we have ever gone away for Spring Break. We always travel off-season or off-peak. I don’t like crowds or people but for many reasons this was the only time that we could make this trip…
