It is holiday season and O’hana Means Family…

My family loves Walt Disney World. Many of them were at the opening in 1971 and today many are owners in the Disney Vacation Club (DVC). So with many trips over the years with their own families, it was time for a trip with all of us together.  During Christmas day one year we decided to all go together that June. My Mom, being a cast member and a big fan planned the trip for all of us. Disney is a great place for a family reunion. Fun for all ages and there is something for everyone. There are so many different resorts so that everyone can choose one...

Disney Imagineer Bruce Gordon

On Thanksgiving we give thanks to those we love and care about. We give thanks for all we have and the food we eat.

I am Thankful for Walt Disney World

I am Thankful for Walt Disney World

Given the season, I’ve given a lot of thought to what I am thankful for. After the truly important things in my life, I am grateful for the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World and all it offers to its guests. Vision. I’m thankful Walt Disney saw what could be and grew the idea of a theme park parents and children could enjoy together into a reality. The Disney Bubble. I’m thankful for how immersive the Walt Disney World experience is. When I step on Disney property, I feel insulated from the real world. Worries fade into the background and stress evaporates. Music. There is music playing in practically...

The Magic’s in the Music – Favorite Park Music, Part 1

The Magic’s in the Music – Favorite Park Music, Part 1

Any time I visit Walt Disney World, I feel like the parks set out a special, sensory welcome mat to make me feel like I’m really home. Of course, there are the delicious smells from the food and snacks and the stunning visuals of their icons: Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth, the Tree of Life and Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat (to which I bid a fond farewell, but admittedly look forward to looking down and seeing the theater in all its glory once again). For me, though, the true magic of Walt Disney World is in the music. Music is a necessity in my life and can instantly transport me back...

London Disney Store Get’s Frozen!

Entrance to the Trading Post

                Last month, I wrote about how I kept Disney close to me in between my trips… well the trip counter is still turning and I’m around 35 days away from my next trip. So this past weekend, I decided to visit the Disney Store but not any old Disney Store, I went to the largest store in Europe in London to have a wander round and thought I would share some pictures with you. The store is on Oxford Street and isn’t too far from Bond Street underground station. It covers two floors but it still isn’t enough it gets incredibly...

To Honey I Shrunk the Audience/Captain EO or not..that is the question.

To Honey I Shrunk the Audience/Captain EO or not..that is the question.

Hello there! When we last spoke, you had taken my advice and went through Journey into the Imagination with Figment.  As you disembark, you will notice that there are people coming from the attraction next door.  I have a small confession to make.  When it comes to this attraction I just knew you would not be interested as most people are not.  Yet, I did you a disservice because who am I to say if you are the greatest Michael Jackson fan on the planet or have always wondered what it would be like to be shrunk . So, I am going to back this train (Walt Disney loved...

November 2014 Chocolate Cream Cheese Buckle

Hello everyone!  Here is a very delicious brunch addition or dessert from Cinderella’s Royal Table!  The Chocolate Cream Cheese Buckle is not difficult to make, it is rather easy.  I had all the ingredients on hand, which made it even more simple no running to the store.  I made these for a dinner at my daughter’s boyfriend Mom’s house.  They were all very impressed with the taste.  I took some to work too, they told me the combination of the cream cheese and chocolate was perfect.  I hope you all enjoy this dessert as much as we did.  Please leave your comments below.
