While Disney is always upgrading and improving, there are a few things, in my opinion, missing from the mobile app and the service.  Here...

CJ meeting a fellow blogger's daughter.  Instant friends!

I’d like to interrupt your regularly scheduled happy time with the following public service announcement.  On your next Disney vacation, take advantage of the cultural melting pot that is created in Central Florida by the thousands of people who visit the parks every day.  America’s future depends on it. Let’s face it.  Tomorrow, you will...

Wish Fulfillment

September 4, 2015

Disney Parks are often imitated, but never duplicated!  I love Disney. It is certainly a “give and take” relationship. I give my money, and Mickey willingly takes it. While I do not mind our current arrangement, and I was very pleased with the news coming out of this year’s D23 Expo, there are a...

Fanciful Food Truck Fare

August 21, 2015

With the popularity of food trucks, it was inevitable that they would appear on Disney property, and I was thrilled to hear the news. Around just about a year now, they are typically located in Downtown Disney on the West Side. There are four different trucks that vary in food type from Disneyland’s famous...

Mouse Ears.  Over the years they have become available in a large range of colors, shapes and sizes, but the thing that remains certain is the undeniable silhouette that one gets after putting on a pair.  As one of the more recognizable souvenirs one would purchase on a Disney vacation, the Mouse Ear Hats first...

$25 a Day at Disney World

July 10, 2015

There are a few things I’m known for, one of which is being cheap.  I prefer to call it, “Frugal Fun.”  Since I’ll be at the parks an extended time period this summer (three weeks, woo hoo!) I figured I’d better spend the trip wearing two hats, the “foodie” hat and the “frugal” one. ...

Hmmm…Where to Stay?

June 12, 2015

There are thirty four resorts and hotels on Walt Disney World property, twenty eight of these are owned by Disney.  Even more numerous are the off-property hotels and vacation homes available.  Truth is, not everyone stays on-property.  How do you choose where to stay and why?  There are benefits to every option.  What must be...

The Queue Question

May 29, 2015
Haunted Mansion Queue

In a few weeks, I’ll be headed to the parks with fourteen other people.  In our group, there are eight children anywhere from age one to fifteen.  There are six children under age six.  (Have we lost our minds? Yep!) Our vacation will happen during one of the busiest times of year, so our expectation...

Avengers Assemble…Almost

May 15, 2015

I cannot believe the Avengers Half Marathon has yet to sell out.  There it sits, at 72% capacity a month after registration opened, while the Wine and Dine Half Marathon sold out in under an hour.  While the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge, 5K & 10K races have sold out, this is still MUCH slower than...
