You’re Staying on Property?! Why? You’re a local? -M. Perkins

You’re Staying on Property?! Why? You’re a local? -M. Perkins 1 By Guest Contributor Michelle Perkins When I was in high school, I took my first trip to Walt Disney World with my grandparents.  I remember we stayed at a resort, it wasn’t on Disney Property, but at the time I didn’t realize that there was a property to stay on. I was not as well versed in Disney as I am now.  Years later when my parents took me to Disney to celebrate my college graduation, they arranged fo Continue Reading

Vegan at Disney? YES!

Vegan at Disney? YES! 14 An important part of any visit to Walt Disney World, at least for me and my family, is FOOD! We love to try new things and places, but this can be a challenge for someone with a restricted diet, such as vegans. Never fear! Disney heard and now has options to accommodate. Just this week, Walt Disney World added a vegan, plant-based skillet to the dinner menu at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge Resort.  As Continue Reading

Taking Your Dog Camping at Walt Disney World 17 So many of us have a furry friend in the house who we treat like family. Someone that we hate to leave behind while heading to our favorite vacation destination, Walt Disney World. Our dog. For me, my little French/English bulldog mix, Captain Jack Sparrow, or just Jack is fine. We live so close to the Parks, but hardly ever do “stay-cations” because we have Jack to worry about. There is Best Friends Pe Continue Reading

I will preface this by saying, I am not a camper.  This is the Continue Reading

Holiday Monorail Crawl 34 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 39 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

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.
