Disney World May 2015 – Day 3!

Our third day at Disney World was Zachary and Taylor’s actual birthday! For the whole trip, they picked which restaurants we would get reservations for and specifically said on this day they wanted to have their birthday dinner at Be Our Guest!  So, we spent most of our day at Magic Kingdom. Because of our Fast Pass+ Reservations, we were able to sleep in a little before we went to the park.  The kids also […]

Disney World May 2015 – Day 2!

This year, our annual passes included the water parks and more feature.  When I had planned out our trip, I made sure to leave some days where we could check out the water parks.  In all of our trips to Disney World, we had never been to either of the water parks.  So, visiting them was something that the kids wanted to do on their birthday trip.  Before we had left home, I made the […]

Wilderness Lodge Resort

During our last trip to Disney World, my family stayed at The Wilderness Lodge in a 1-bedroom Villa.  The Wilderness Lodge is a wonderful Magic Kingdom area resort!  It is not on the monorail like the other Deluxe resorts in the Magic Kingdom area, but it does have boat access to the Magic Kingdom park and bus transportation to the other parks. When you arrive at the Wilderness Lodge, you feel like you have just […]

Disney Member Cruise – Day 4!!

August 27, 2014 It was a beautiful morning to wake up at Castaway Cay.  The weather the whole trip was amazing..especially since Christoball (the storm) was out in the Atlantic.  Disney magic and pixie dust must have kept the storm away since at first, it looked like the Bahamas were going to take a direct hit. After we got up an around, we headed to Cabana’s for our last breakfast on the Disney Dream. After breakfast, […]

Disney Member Cruise – Day 3!!

August 26, 2014   This was our big day at sea!  After we woke up, we headed to Cabana’s for breakfast.  Always yummy! After breakfast, the kids wanted to go to the Oceaneer’s Club and Michael and I went to a presentation on “Walt Disney and the 64 The World’s Fair” which featured Disney legends, Marty Sklar and Alice Davis along with Disney Character Artist, Stacia Martin. On our way, we saw a sleepwalking Goofy […]

Aulani!!! – May 27, 2014!

The day had finally arrived!!  We were heading to Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa!!!  We checked out of our hotel in Waikiki and decided to drive to Aulani…even though it was early and we were certain that our rooms would not be ready when we arrived. The drive from the Honolulu area to the Ko’Olina Resort area (where Aulani is located) was not a difficult drive (there are not many highways in Oahu).  However, the […]

LA!! Day 4

We got up early on Friday morning. After we finished packing, we left The Grand Californian and headed back to LA.  Our hotel was in El Segundo…which is really close to LAX.  We had a few hours before our LA tour would start, so we decided to explore a little.  We quickly made our way to the El Segundo beach.  There were a lot of surfers out that morning.  The kids played in the sand […]

Disneyland – Day 3!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! This was our last day at Disneyland 🙁  For resort guests, it was Extra Magic Hour morning at Disneyland. The park opened at 7 a.m. So, we got up and made our way to the entrance of the park a little after 6 a.m.  It really didn’t seem that early to us.  The whole time we were in California, we could not get our bodies to adjust to the 2-hour time difference.  So, […]

Disneyland – Day 2!!

Our second day at Disneyland, we got up early and went to Disneyland Park!! Main Street looked very pretty with all the Christmas decorations. Sleeping Beauty’s castle was covered in snow.  It is much smaller than Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom. So, I have always wanted to ride The Matterhorn.  We convinced Taylor to ride it so that we could all ride it together.  It didn’t take very long until we were in our […]

Disneyland and California!!!! Day 1

This year for Thanksgiving, we decided to take a trip and get away.  Surprise!! We switched it up a bit and instead of going to Disney World, we decided to check out the original Disney park and went to Disneyland!!!  We had such a good time.  I definitely have my favorites about both Disney World and Disneyland.  Disney World still has a very special place in my heart and I love going there, but Disneyland […]
