Disney Coloring Books

When we’re not at a Disney Park, we are always looking for ways to bring a little Disney into our lives. Whether it be a Mickey Mouse tissue box, nail polish, shirt, tablecloth, or movie, every bit makes the pain of missing home a little less. On a recent search, I found a great way to be creative and relax all while enjoying something Disney related. Coloring! Yes, I said coloring! It’s not just for kids a

Disney Shaming, Can You Relate? #DisneyLife

They lurk in the shadows of their news feed. Hiding… afraid to like, comment, or share. Why do they hide? Out of fear of what others will think. Afraid to be themselves and share what they truly love. Who are these people you ask? They are Disney fans just like you and me. For some unknown reason, there is a stigma associated with being an adult and being a Disney fan. I call it Disney Shaming. Because of this, w

Calories DO Count At Disney

Re-post! A few weeks before a Disney trip, I find myself on a path of healthy eating and exercising. There’s always that ‘few pounds’ I HAVE to lose before we arrive. When we get there, healthy eating gets thrown out the window. Why? Because calories don’t count at Disney!

Recap~ River Country Resort On the Horizon

If you ever ride the boats across Bay lake from Fort Wilderness Campground and Resort or Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, you can’t miss the eyesore that once was the popular water park, River Country. Since it’s close in 2001, Disney has let the property deteriorate, not even draining the pool until 2016. According to the Orlando Sentinel, that’s all about to change!  With construction set to begin in 2019, the

Pirates and Pals Fireworks

There are few better things to do at Disney than watch the fireworks shows. I can remember times that we scoped out a spot for Wishes hours in advance to make sure we had the best view. Now Disney is offering a different view for the fireworks at Magic Kingdom;  pirate’s eye view. Located at the Contemporary Resort, the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Dessert Voyage is a family-friendly adventure that starts out wi

Another Island In The Works

One of the many advantages to going on a Disney Cruise is the stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. With the fleet going from four ships to seven, they may soon need more space.  According to a report out of the Bahamas, Kim Prunty, VP of Communications for Disney Signature Experiences, confirmed yesterday that the cruise line does have interest in adding another signature private destina

Grand Floridian Greeter Richard

With the passing of this beloved man, I thought I’d share an article that Susanne did on him awhile back, in his honor.  God bless you Richard! ~M   We often talk about the special touches that keep us coming back to Disney year after year, and the Cast Members often play a big part in that experience. If you’ve ever been to the Grand Floridian Resort, you may have walked right by a Disney legend and
