Happy Villaintine’s Day!

Today, Feb. 13, is Villaintine’s Day!  I thought I would post a few fun photos from when the Magical Vacations team went to Disney World this past November and went to Club Villain at Hollywood Studios.  So Much Fun!! And a few selfies with the Queen of Hearts…I think I ended up with at least 12-16 selfies with her.  Again…so much fun!  After this night, she became my absolute favorite villain.

Disney World and Older Kids

We started going to Disney World when my kids were 3 years old.  They are now almost 13 and the way we travel around Disney World has definitely changed.  Some people think that Disney World is only for families with young kids and once their kids are older, that they need to start looking for new vacation destinations…that there isn’t enough to keep a tween or teen occupied.  But, there is so much tweens and […]
