National Polka Dot Day!!!

Did you know that today, January 22, is National Polka Dot day!?!  I am sure Minnie Mouse is a huge fan of this day! It makes me think back to one of our trips where my daughter had a sundress made with the same type of red and white Polka Dots that Minnie wears on her dress.  We met Minnie at Hollywood Studios and when she saw my daughter dressed like her, she made such […]

Disney World and Older Kids

We started going to Disney World when my kids were 3 years old.  They are now almost 13 and the way we travel around Disney World has definitely changed.  Some people think that Disney World is only for families with young kids and once their kids are older, that they need to start looking for new vacation destinations…that there isn’t enough to keep a tween or teen occupied.  But, there is so much tweens and […]

Polynesian Village Villas & Bungalows

On a recent trip, I was able to tour through the Polynesian Village Villas and Bungalows.  This included seeing a Studio and one of the Bungalows!  Anyone who has ever been to the Polynesian Village, either to stay as a guest or just visiting for a dining reservation, knows how beautiful this resort is.  Great pools, great views and a laid back island-y feel. To see more on the Polynesian Village, check out this link: http://wp.me/p5eeOm-1Qh […]

Polynesian Village Resort

The Polynesian Village Resort allows guests to feel like they have been transported to the Pacific Islands.  It is a remarkable resort with a nice laid-back feel, just like island life.  Once you step onto the resort grounds, you kind of forget you are in the middle of Disney World.   The Polynesian Village Resort is a Magic Kingdom Deluxe Resort on the Monorail.  It sits on the Seven Seas Lagoon and is across the […]

Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

I recently had the privilege of staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. During my stay, I was able to experience staying in a regular guest room building as well as a Club Level building.  This resort definitely gives its guests a front-row seat to the Magic Kingdom!  It is a Magic Kingdom Deluxe Resort that is on the Monorail and only one stop from the Magic Kingdom!  The Grand Floridian is a Victorian-inspired […]

Disney announced this week that all of the celebrity narrators have been scheduled for the 2016 Candlelight Processional.

It takes place in the America Gardens Theater in Epcot’s World Showcase.  Dining packages can be reserved at many restaurants to guarantee seating. Admission to Epcot is required. Below is the list of celebrity narrators […]

Day 7 on Disney Fantasy – June 17, 2016

Our final day on the Disney Fantasy was a Castaway Cay day!!!!  Castaway is amazing! Disney really outdid themselves when they created Castaway Cay (which is pronounced “key”…so if you ever book a Disney Cruise through me, you will know the correct way to pronounce it). It’s always exciting watching the ship come into the port. We have been so lucky to have gone on several Disney Cruises before this one, so this was not […]

Day 6 on Disney Fantasy – June 16, 2016

Our sixth day on the Disney Fantasy was a full day at sea.  I always like have a few sea days mixed in with an itinerary because it gives you time to rest and relax and just enjoy the ship.  There aren’t any excursions to get to, so if you want to sleep in a little and have a late breakfast, it’s no big deal! Taylor spent a lot of her day at Edge with […]

Day 5 on Disney Fantasy – June 15, 2016

On our fifth day, the Disney Fantasy took us to Jamaica!  When we woke up that morning, the ship was almost to Jamaica.  At first, the island did not look anything like I had pictured it.  There were a lot of trees. But, then the ship turned around and we were facing the port in Falmouth and it looked more like what I had pictured in my head. After breakfast at Cabana’s, it was time […]
