Disney World July 2013 Day 4!!!

Disney World Day 4!!! Tuesday, July 16, 2013 Animal Kingdom…here we come!!! We arrived at Animal Kingdom a little after it opened…not what we usually do.  We are normally always at the parks long before they open so we can be first inside, but we had a late night the night before and took our time getting around the next morning. Normally, we get inside the park and bypass all of the animals in the […]

Disney World July 2013 Day 3!!

Disney World Day 3!! Monday, July 15, 2013 We started our day off at Epcot.  One of the great things about staying at an Epcot resort (like The Boardwalk or Beach or Yacht Club) is that you can enter Epcot through the World Showcase entrance.  The other benefit is that they usually let you into the park a little bit earlier than the people at the front, main entrance of the park.  The reason is […]

Disney World July 2013 Day 2!!

Disney World Day 2!! Sunday, July 14, 2013 Hollywood Studios here we come!!! We ended up waking up earlier than we thought we would.  Since we had plenty of time and the boats were not running yet from The Boardwalk to Hollywood Studios, we decided to walk to Hollywood Studios.  It’s not a bad walk…maybe 15 minutes. When we got there, we were one of the first families in line.  One of the cast members, […]

Disney World July 2013 Day 1!!!

Disney World Day 1!!! Saturday, July 13, 2013 Everyone asks why we always do Disney Vacations…simple answer…they are FUN!!!  We always come away with different experiences, magical moments and lots of family memories. Our July 2013 Disney vacation fulfilled all of these moments and memories for our family. We flew out of Branson, MO on Southwest Airlines…I’m really disappointed that Southwest is going to stop flying the non-stop route to Orlando from Branson.  I think […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 4!

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 4! March 17, 2013 We only had a little bit of time before we had to leave Disney World and go to the airport.  We made the most of the time we had by going to the one park we hadn’t been to yet…Animal Kingdom! Once the park opened, we headed straight for Expedition Everest!!  Taylor had even agreed to ride…what a little thrill rider she was being!!!  […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 3!!

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 3!! March 16, 2013 Saturday was our last full day at Disney World.  We knew we would go to Hollywood Studios to start the day.  We took the boat over from the Beach Club. As soon as we got inside, Michael moved his way up through the crowd as far as he could.  This is always our plan at Hollywood.  Then, when they open the park, he gets […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 2!!

Spring Break 2013 – Disney World Day 2!! March 15, 2013 What a magical day!! I love going to the Magic Kingdom!  There is something about this park that is…well, MAGICAL!!!  I love going into the entrance of the park and rounding the corner to see the castle.  I would love to be able to casually stroll down Main Street and see everything slowly…without a crowd of people running to get to whichever attraction.  Of […]

Spring Break 2013 Disney World day 1

Spring Break 2013 Disney World day 1 March 14, 2013 We got up early and got off the ship pretty much as soon as the doors were open.  It was really nice…the lines were really short, we didn’t have to wait anytime at all to go through customs and because we had done the express check-out service, we had all of our luggage with us, so we didn’t have to go find it.  Usually, you […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 4

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 4 March 13, 2013 This was our one and only day to be completely at sea.  We got up and started our day by having breakfast at Cabana’s.  Always good.  After breakfast, the kids wanted to go to the Oceaneer’s Club for a little bit.  Michael and I decided to walk around the ship.  We took a stroll along Deck 4.  We could see a lot of other […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 3

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 3 Tuesday, March 12, 2013 This is one of my favorite days on a Disney cruise!  Going to Disney’s private island…Castaway Cay (looks like “Kay”, but pronounced “Key”).  It is beautiful.  Quick fact…Castaway Cay is the same island that the beach scenes in the movie Splash were filmed at.  Cool, huh? We woke up early and looked out our window to  see the barrier reef area out our […]
