    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…

    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 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…

    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 Caribbean Beach Resort

    So I just recently graduated from my master’s program and where did I choose to go and celebrate?  Disney World!  No surprise there! Jesse and I spent a week and a half in Disney at the end of April/ beginning of May.  We spent a couple nights at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (our absolute favorite.. you can read about that here), but wanted to try something new and spent the majority of our vacation at Caribbean Beach Resort. This was our first time staying at Caribbean Beach Resort and we were a little concerned that we wouldn’t get the full Disney experience due to the construction going on at this…

    Honeymoon at Disney World – The Perfect Place for Happily Ever After

    I had always dreamed of a big princess wedding, with a big ball gown, my prince, and the happiest place on earth!  And in August 2016, I got that!  I was so excited after Jesse asked me to be his princess and I instantly began to plan all the Disney details to make our wedding and honeymoon at Disney World magical! We are from Ohio so a wedding ceremony and reception at Disney World were out of the question if I wanted all of my family and friends to attend.  We were married in a gorgeous Catholic church ceremony and had a fantastic Disney themed reception! It was certainly my…

    Mixing Disney with Universal!

    So Disney World is my favorite place to be and I have also corrupted my husband who now just wants to live in the Disney parks as much as I do! I have visited the parks many times with my family and then also a couple times with just my husband. Jesse and I had always talked about visiting Universal Studios in Orlando; however, I have always had a set schedule for Disney and was never able to fit in Universal to the vacation. So this past April Jesse and I went on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas and decided to add a few extra days in the parks…
