    Our Magic Kingdom Schedule – See it All Without Waking up Early!

    So currently, my most popular post on Pinterest is “How to do Disney when you are not a morning person/why you do not have to be a Disney rope drop person”. I wasn’t expecting it to be a popular opinion because so many people push for rope drop as a way to ride popular rides with short wait times. But because it seems to have interested some on how they can still have a great time in Disney without rising before the sun (who can blame them/you?)…I have decided to share what our daily schedules look like for each park. So here you have it! Our Magic Kingdom schedule! If…

    We Loved Our Disney Cruise – 6 Reasons Why

    We took a Disney cruise a few years ago, when it was just Jesse and I. We were both eager to get to the beach but still wanted to keep that Disney magic alive. We were not disappointed, we loved our Disney Cruise! I was nervous about a cruise because I am a spaz! I’ve never been sea sick in my life but I was so scared to be stuck on a ship for multiple days and have the possibility of nausea or even worse…puke! 🤢 We decided to take a short 3 night cruise to the Bahamas so that if either of us got sick it wasn’t for an…

    Wild Africa Trek Tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

    Jesse promised me that when I graduated with my master’s degree and got hired somewhere we would celebrate by taking the Wild Africa Trek tour at Animal Kingdom! Well he kept that promise and after I began my teaching career, we took the tour and it was AWESOME!! We actuality weren’t planning on taking the tour just yet. But when we decided to leave a day early for vacation, we had some spare time! We called to see if there was any availability for the next morning and we were in luck! Arrival and check-in Make sure you give yourself enough time to arrive because this tour is all the…

    Disney World Resort Quiz! Which Resort is the Best for YOU?

    I am at the point in my Disney traveling career (does it count as a career? I think so) that I have a goal to stay at each resort on property! Not only is it for me, but it is also for YOU! Each new resort comes with a new post about that resort and our experiences on that trip (Or even a Disney World resort quiz!)! You’re welcome 😜 But maybe your new to this whole Disney thing, or maybe you just need a break down of what each resort offers to fit your needs! Instead of reading article after article and looking at pictures until you forget what…

    Disney Itinerary for a Week Long Vacation

    Over all of the years of visiting Disney World, I have pretty much followed the same weekly Disney itinerary for them all! Aside from our split Disney/Universal/Cruise trip, all of our Disney trips have followed a pretty structured week. When we book a Disney vacation, we always check in on a Saturday and check out the following Saturday. This works with Jesse’s vacation time off from work. Since we live about 16 hours away and drive, we leave for our trip on Friday. Sometimes we drive straight through, other times we book a hotel and sometimes we will just stop for a nap at a rest area Check-In Once we…

    Our Daily Disney Schedule

    Everyone has a different daily Disney schedule that works for them. Sometimes that means waking up at the crack of dawn, sometimes it means magic hours until 1 in the morning, and sometimes it means a mid afternoon break back at your resort. But no matter the schedule, there is no right or wrong, just a RIGHT for your family! As frequent Disney travelers, our schedule may be a little more “go with the flow” than others, but it works with our sleep/eat/play schedule and provides us the opportunity to do everything important on our list! So here it is, my family’s daily Disney schedule! We are not morning people…

    Is Disney Safe? When to Return (COVID-19)

    With the news of Disney World planning to start a phased reopening on July 11th, everyone is scrambling to figure out their summer vacation plans. But one question is super important to consider before packing your bags…is Disney safe to return to? If you follow my posts, you know that my family had a big Disney World trip scheduled back in March that was canceled less than 2 weeks before our trip. That trip was going to be my sons first trip to Disney and we couldn’t have been more excited! But things have changed now and due to Covid-19, Jesse and I are not ready to take that trip…

    Starbucks at Disney World – Where to Find ALL 6 Locations

    Who doesn’t love Starbucks? I’m not even a coffee drinker per say but I love me some good iced Starbucks drinks! Fortunately, Disney has our Starbucks addictions handled because you can find one at all 4 theme parks and 2 at Disney Springs! However, they may not be easy to find for a newbie because they are disguised into the themes of the parks. How sad would it be to be walking down Main Street with your sight set on the castle, only to be interrupted by a huge Starbucks sign sticking out from the shops lining the most magical street in all of Florida? Doesn’t sound magical does it!?!…

    Why You DO NOT Have to be a Disney Rope Drop Person

    Are you feeling the pressure to be a Disney rope drop person? We all see the pins and read the blogs about how to ride X amount of rides before lunch and it alwayssss starts with arriving to Disney for rope drop. Meaning you are at the park and through bag check, waiting to enter before the park opens! For some people this is great advice! For others…I can’t imagine being up that early unless I’m being forced to be, anyone else? Everyone has a different method of enjoying a Disney Vacation, but sometimes I run into those people that took bad advice that didn’t work for them and they…

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

    It is hard to argue that the value resorts have some of the best Disney theming on property to make you feel like you are in the middle of the Disney Magic. The value resorts are where you are going to find the larger than life themes straight out of your favorite Disney movies, and Disney’s Art of Animation resort is (in my opinion) the best themed value resort on property. Art of Animation is, on average, the most expensive of the value resorts since 3/4 of the rooms are suites that accommodate 6 guests verses the 1/4 that are standard 4 guest rooms. When we stayed at Art of…
