Disney Villas for 5 or more people

Previously, I showed Disney Resort rooms that sleep 5 or more people.  If you are looking for a space that sleeps 5 or more people, but want more of the conveniences of home, a Disney World Resort Villa, might be what you are looking for.  The resorts that also feature Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Villas are also available for non-DVC members to book, depending on availability.  These resorts provide a few amenities that make vacationing […]

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 […]

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 1!

I know it has been way too long since I have updated this blog, but sometimes life gets busy and then I just got out of the habit.  Hopefully, I will start to do better 🙂 This past May 2015, we took the kids to Disney World to celebrate their birthday.  This was a first for us.  We had never been there for a birthday celebration, so it was a lot of fun to see […]

Walt Disney World March 2014 – Day 4!!

This was a fun day at Animal Kingdom!  We had looked at the park opening hours before we had left for our trip, but somewhere during leaving and this day, the opening time was changed and Animal Kingdom opened an hour earlier than what had been posted.  So, we ended up getting to the park after it opened, but as it turned out, a lot of people also must have thought the park opened at […]

Walt Disney World March 2014-Day 2!!

Magic Kingdom Morning!! It was a beautiful morning.  We got up early to go to the Magic Kingdom for breakfast at The Crystal Palace.  As we left Bay Lake Tower and took the walkway over to The Contemporary Resort to catch the monorail, we saw how pretty the sunrise was. After taking the resort monorail around to the Magic Kingdom, we got in line to get in early to the park for our 8:00 a.m. […]

Walt Disney World March 2014 – Day 1!!

We had such a great time at Disney World for our 2014 Spring Break!  I already miss it and am already trying to plan our next trip back!!! We arrived on Saturday, March 8, 2014.  After arriving at Orlando International Airport, we hopped on board Disney’s Magical Express (the complimentary round-trip motor coach ground transfers that Disney provides from MCO).  We made our way to Disney Contemporary Resort…we were staying at Bay Lake Tower at […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 6 – Hollywood, Epcot and a storm!

WDW 2012 – Day 6 – Hollywood, Epcot and a storm! This day was a really exciting day for us!  We got up and headed for Hollywood Studios.  It was the last day of Star Wars Weekends…and that was something we had never been to.  Of course, it did make the park a little more crowded and we didn’t hang out there very long, but it was fun and what made it exciting was we […]

Disney World – Day 5 – Epcot and Mickey’s BBQ!

WDW 2012 – Day 5 – Epcot and Mickey’s BBQ! Our 5th day at Disney World was a busy day!  We had lunch reservations at Le Cellier Steakhouse at Epcot.  This is one of our favorite non-character meals! We hopped on the Monorail and made our way to Epcot!  We had a few hours before our yummy lunch.  Epcot typically opens at 9 a.m., but the World Showcase area doesn’t open until 11 a.m. After […]

Disney World – Day 4 – Animal Kingdom

WDW – Day 4 – Animal Kingdom/Epcot! So we started our 4th day at Disney World by getting up and making it to the Animal Kingdom for breakfast at Donald’s Safari Breakfast at Tusker House!  This is one of our favorite breakfasts at Disney World.  I love getting reservations for it before the park opens so we can get family photos in front of the Tree of Life! Breakfast at Tusker House is served as […]
