Resorts at Disney World for 5 or more people

When planning a trip to Disney World, choosing the right resort is so important.  Like most hotel rooms around the globe, it is easy to find a room if you are looking for a family of 4 or less. But, when the family size is 5 or more people, it is good to know what your options are.  Not all resorts at Disney will sleep 5 or more people, but it is good to know […]

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 […]

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. […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 7 – Magic Kingdom and Epcot!

WDW 2012 – Day 7 – Magic Kingdom and Epcot! This was our last full day at Disney World. That morning, after getting up and going to the Contempo Cafe for breakfast… Who can resist a Mickey waffle?! After breakfast, we headed over to the Magic Kingdom.  It was a Monday, so I knew it would be crowded.  I had been told years ago by a cast member that the Magic Kingdom is always very […]

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 […]
