Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village

On our last family trip to Walt Disney World, we stayed in a 1-bedroom villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village.  It was amazing! We had a savannah view room and could go out on our balcony at anytime and see animals.  So fun! Definitely a fun and unique experience right at the resort.   Staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge is almost like being on your own African Safari!  Animal Kingdom Lodge is […]

It’s Raining, Now What?

No one ever wants to look at the weather forecast and see rainy days while they are on vacation at Disney World. However, when this happens, know that your day is not ruined. First, if you see rain in the forecast, the chance of it being an all-day rain is slim. In the summer, it isn’t a typical day unless it rains in the afternoon. The typical summer storm usually lasts for a short period […]

Caribbean Beach Resort

I recently had the opportunity to stay a few nights at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.  It had been many, many years since I had last stayed at this resort, so a lot had changed.  The resort recently underwent a huge refurbishment and soon will be one of the new stops on the Disney Skyliner, an aerial gondola system.  This will make it a lot easier to get to Hollywood Studios and Epcot from this resort!
