Disney World May 2015 – Day 7!

This was our last day for this trip to Disney World.  We spent the morning at Epcot and the evening at Hollywood Studios.

Plus, we had […]

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 […]

Walt Disney World March 2014 – Day 5!!

Epcot Day! We started off our day a little slow.  After getting up and getting a little laundry done (so fun to do on vacation, but it is so nice staying in a Vacation Club Villa with a washer and dryer…love going home with mostly clean clothes!), we headed to Epcot. This was the only day that rain was in the forecast.  So, I made sure we all had ponchos.  When we arrived, both of […]
