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

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.

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

Sea of Strollers

With the ever increasing crowds at the parks as of late, the amount of strollers has also skyrocketed. This leaves stroller parking areas highly congested, leaving Cast Members to move and arrange strollers, with guests more often than not having issues even locating their stroller after exiting an attraction. Disney finally realized what a problem this actually is and has put a pilot program in place to alleviate
