My Favorite Disney Memory – What is yours?

Who remembers the morning show that used to take place every morning to open Magic Kingdom? It was my absolute favorite!

How lucky were those people that got picked? Speaking from experience, super lucky! I had

What’s the Disney Secret?

Truth time; haven’t you always been curious, why do we keep coming back to Disney?

Wilderness to the Contemporary (with a stop Wilderness Lodge depending on the direction of the boat). As we were nearing River Country, I noticed a tree in the water that had shoes hanging all over it. All of the shoes were paired, tied, and white. Curious about the reasoning behind it,

Disney Magic By Guest Blogger and former Marine, Cliff!

Disney magic is real, and it can come in many shapes and sizes! On a recent trip to Walt Disney World, a former Marine shared a very touching story about an encounter he had with a Cast Member. While boarding a bus, the guest noticed how the bus driver was standing. These are his words from the encounter, “This bus driver stands at parade rest while folks load onto his bus. He said he does this because his father
