Who Are The Singing Busts?

In case you missed it! It’s no secret, for Michele and I, our favorite ride at Walt Disney World is the Haunted Mansion.  It’s the ride that each and every time we go to the Magic Kingdom, we make time for it.  It’s one of those attractions where we are always looking to see if we spot anything new and try to get pictures of some of the scenes. My favorite scene, and one I never run out of thing Continue Reading

Hidden Jack Skellington?

Welcome Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion! We all know and love those famous words and can probably recite the transcript for the entire ride. I know my family can! In my deepest ‘spooky voice’ I attempt to do my best Paul Frees impression, not as successfully as I would like but that’s beside the point. While on a visit to Magic Kingdom a few summers ago, we got caught in a pretty lengthy rain storm. Continue Reading

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! The Mayor of Main Street, USA would come out and welcome everyone, the dancers/singers would perform, the train would roll in with the characters, and that one family would walk out to join in the countdown. How lucky were those people that got picked? Speaking from experience, super lucky! I had Continue Reading

Tackling the Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream

If you are a true Disney fan and a Disney Foodie, then you have certainly heard of the Kitchen Sink.  Now I’m not talking about the little one at Magic Kingdom in the cute little Mickey pants bowl, I’m talking about the original Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop.  This has been on our families bucket list for a long time, but we never ordered it.  We’ve always stuck with our individua Continue Reading

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! I can have all of the burgers, dole whips, churros, and Mickey bars I want without consequence, right? Wrong. As much as I wish that wer Continue Reading

The Festival of the Lion King

“IT IS TIME!!!!!”  These words give me chills every time I hear them at the beginning of my favorite show, The Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.   The power and energy of this show brings out every emotion in me and my whole family. The show is located in the Harambe Theatre in Africa at Animal Kingdom.  The theater is a good size and there’s not a bad seat in the house.  Everything happens on Continue Reading
