Disney Planning, Again!


For many reasons we have decided to move our January trip to Walt Disney World to March. We swore we would never be those people who planned their trips around school breaks but now that both kids are in high school it is a bit tougher. Christmas break was later this year lasting until January…

Changes at Walt Disney World


Sunday is my fun day! I write about my family or something that is going on in our world. Lots of changes to the Walt Disney World theme parks were announced at the D23 Expo, a conference for those who love all things Disney, in California last week. I LOVE Disney. Let’s start with that….

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…

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…

“Wishes” to End and “Happily Ever After” to Begin


Disney World means a lot to our family. It is our “home” away from home. My children grew up watching the “Wishes” fireworks show in Magic Kingdom. I remember holding each one of them on our shoulders to see the fireworks and the castle.  Now they are as tall as I am (or taller!) and…

Making Our Fastpass Picks During Peak Season


Fastpasses (FP) are Disney’s version of front of the line passes. When you buy your tickets you get the ability to make 3 FP choices. If you buy a vacation package from Disney you can make your FP choices 60 days in advance. That sounds crazy doesn’t it? I have to predict in 60 days…

Pooh Sized Traveling – Part I Magic Kingdom


Updated – October 8, 2016 This is part of a series I did a couple years ago. This is the last Disney post for a week or so. We are not a tiny family.  I am 5’8″ tall and a 30-32W.  My partner is short 5’1″ and 26-28W.  Even our children are fairly tall for…

You are Going to Disney World Again? My Response


As I am getting ready to book our next trip to Disney World in February already I can hear in my head all the people who ask where we are going on vacation this year say, “Didn’t you just go there?”  or my favorite, “You know there are other places to visit other than Disney…

What Is There do do for the Youngest Visitors at Walt Disney World?


This past weekend I was talking to someone about Walt Disney World and what is the “right” age to take children.  My kids both started going to Disney World when they were 18 months.  Do they remember those trips?  No.  But, we sure do. They developed great memories for their aunts, uncles and grandparents who…
