Tuesdays With Corey ~ Traveling Without Kids To WDW

Time and time again I’ve heard the same thing, “But Disney World and Disneyland are for kids.” I’ve heard it from friends, co-workers and people who have actually been there, but didn’t know that there’s a whole other side of Disney for us adults.

The Tree of Life Story ~ Tuesdays With Corey

It’s time for Tuesdays With Corey! At one time no vegetation would grow on Discovery Island at the Animal Kingdom. No tree, shrubs, flowers or plants. It was completely barren.

The ants’ wish came true and a tree began to grow. It contin Continue Reading

  When you are leaving Future World and heading into World Showcase you know that you have to go either left or right. To the left are our friends to the south of us, Mexico and to the right is Canada. I for one prefer to go right and make my way counter-clockwise, so this article is going to be about Canada.

Tuesdays With Corey ~ Filming in Disney/MGM

When Disney was planning for a new pavilion in EPCOT Future World they were brainstorming ideas of one being based around a movie theme. The ride that was going to be included was The Great Movie Ride. But newly appointed CEO Michael Eisner came up with another idea. Instead of just placing the ride in a park, why not base a park around the ride. So in 1989 we got a third park in Walt Disney World, Disney MGM Studi Continue Reading

Many of the people who visit the Disney parks know that there is something special about each and every one. There’s “magic” at the parks.
