Christmas at Fort Wilderness

Christmas at Fort Wilderness 2 I’ve been sharing with you all season some of my favorite places to visit to check out the holiday decor.  Well, this next one is a hidden gem that not many people know about.  It’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

Extending Kindness this Holiday Season (Disney style)

Extending Kindness this Holiday Season (Disney style) 12 Tis the Season! It’s less than one week till Christmas Day and a lot of us are busy doing last minute preparations. The hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season is crazy for so many people, and we get preoccupied with all the things we have to do. Disney is crazy busy this time of year as well! The lines are longer, the crowds are heavy, and guests tend to lose their patience at times because of how hectic Continue Reading

TMSM’s Adventures in Florida Living ~ Merry Christmas!

TMSM's Adventures in Florida Living ~ Merry Christmas! 14 Happy Wednesday Everyone!  Can you believe that Christmas is next week already? For some reason, the Christmas season went by so much faster than Halloween did at Disney. Well, I suppose it’s because they do Halloween for a longer span of time, but regardless, it’s all been a blur. I love Christmas time, I’ve had my tree up since the first week of November… and now it’s almost here. C Continue Reading

Epcot International Festival of the Holidays Food Tasting 19 Our annual TMSM Meetup was held at Epcot during the Festival of the Holidays and was the perfect opportunity to taste some of the great holiday offerings from around the world.  So myself and fellow staffer Corey Tucker, and our families, set out to sample as much as we could while everyone in the meetup was doing the big scavenger hunt. First up was Canada and the Yukon Holiday Kitchen.  We all got the Seared S Continue Reading

Holiday Monorail Crawl

Holiday Monorail Crawl 30 Who doesn’t love Walt Disney World during the holidays?  Disney always does an amazing job of decorating for the holidays. Each resort and park has their own theme and it’s so fun to see what they come up with for the holidays. Earlier in the season I wrote a blog about practicing patience in the parks this holiday season. Sometimes we need to take a break from the parks and do something different to get away Continue Reading

Holiday Decor at Wilderness Lodge

Holiday Decor at Wilderness Lodge 35 One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to head over to the different resorts and check out the holiday decor.  Wilderness Lodge has one of the most beautiful Christmas trees.  It is just so grand and the atmosphere of the resort just makes you feel like you are somewhere up North. Sometimes you can park at the resort and let them know that you are just coming to look at the holiday decor, but when Continue Reading

Flashback Friday! Backstreet Bears, MVMCP! (fun video!)

Flashback Friday! Backstreet Bears, MVMCP! (fun video!) 42 It’s Friday and I thought it would be fun to do a TMSM Flashback post with one of my favorite moments we got on video since moving down here to Florida. In December of 2014 at the Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom, we went to the dance party at the Golden Horseshoe and caught this moment from the Country Bears. If you’re a fan of Disney AND Boy Bands, it’s a must see! Enjoy!   Continue Reading

Holiday Decor at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa

Holiday Decor at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa 46 As I’ve said before, one of my favorite things to do during the holidays at Walt Disney World is to resort hop to see all the beautiful holiday decorations.  Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is one of my favorites. Stepping into the resort, it’s absolutely stunning. So elegant.  When you walk in you see the grand Christmas tree front and center in the main lobby. The Victorian style tre Continue Reading

Holiday Decor at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Holiday Decor at Disney's Contemporary Resort 59 This past weekend we hopped on the monorail to visit some of the resorts and check out the holiday decor.  Sometimes people are looking for something cheap and fun to do while visiting Walt Disney World.  Visiting the resorts to see the holiday decor is a top on my family’s list.  Yes we are local, but when family comes to visit and they aren’t quite into the parks as much as we are, visiting the res Continue Reading
