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 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 […]

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream Day 1

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 1 Sunday, March 10, 2013 After we left the Universal Studios area, we drove to Cape Canaveral to stay the night at a Country Inn and Suites.  It was a decent hotel.  What was really nice is that they offer a park and cruise for $40.  We didn’t know this until we checked in.  We had planned on leaving our rental car at the cruise terminal garage and […]

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 […]
