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….

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…

Another Disney Trip??!!


So, I have been planning another Walt Disney World trip in secret. We wanted to surprise the kids on Christmas Day with a trip for this year. They didn’t get to go last year and we had them convinced that we were going to wait until 2018 to go again. We actually booked the trip…

Pooh Sized Traveling – Part II Epcot Future World


*Updated from the original post on October 15, 2016. We are a family of what is commonly referred to, in Disney Speak, as Pooh Sized people.  I think of myself more Ursula sized but that is for another day. We love vacationing in Walt Disney World because they try to accommodate everyone when building their…

Our Family: My Crafty Daughter


When we lived in New York my daughter was homeschooled. After the first day of 6th grade she looked at me and said, “These kids are annoying and they are wasting my time. Can I please be homeschooled?” She knew herself well enough to know it wasn’t going to work out for her in a…

Disney Advanced Dining Reservations and Fastpasses


We love Disney! It is a passion of ours for the past 20 years. This is our first trip in 16 years without children or anyone else accompanying us. We love going to Disney with other family and our children as we can show them all the things we love about Disney. My favorite compliment…

Finding Nemo – The Musical


In Animal Kingdom you can cross into Dinoland USA and find The Theater in the Wild. This theater currently houses “Finding Nemo – The Musical.” When we were there the show was playing five times during the day. Hours of showing and number of shows vary by crowd levels and seasons. Check the Time Guides…

1900 Park Fare – Breakfast Buffet


This is a picture of three generations – my father, my brother and my son. All have the same name. So this was a really special picture for us. We love Walt Disney World dining because we can always find someplace where we are all happy to eat. All three families were traveling together and…

Cosmic Ray’s – A Cool Place to Stop for a Bite to Eat


We love Cosmic Ray’s for a bit of respite be it from the heat or rain. Situated on the edge of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland in Walt Disney World it always seems we are right in that area when hunger starts to gnaw at us. With 3 “Bays” for ordering lines are usually not too long,…

Teppan Edo – Japanese Habachi Grill


We have never eaten in Japan other than at the counter service restaurant, Katsura Grill, which we try to stop during every trip for a combination platter. We have made reservations in the past at Teppan Edo and ended up canceling because they never fit into our plans. I thought my children would love it…

Columbia Harbour House


Whenever we are in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World we plan to eat at Columbia Harbour House. During the off hours it generally is not as crowded as some other restaurant and if you are lucky you can get a table upstairs overlooking Liberty Square. The day we were here it was a…

Raglan Road – Disney Springs


We arrived two nights prior to the start of the Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2015 and wanted to spend a few days getting to different places that we might not otherwise get a chance to go to. The one place my daughter really wanted to go to was Raglan Road. She wanted to see…
