May 2, 2014
Naps are great in carriers!  Too bad she missed the chance to meet Cinderella.

Recharge, Relax & runDisney

In February 2013, I packed up my daughters and flew solo to Walt Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  The decision was very last minute; we were already planning to be there for the weekend and my daughter saw pictures online and asked if we would be doing that on our next...

Tinkerbell pants, yes...my own mouse ears...not yet.

On WDW FanZone Blogcast of Midnight Magic a couple weeks ago, we discussed our Disney Bucket Lists.  As a frequent Disney guest, there are several things on my list, which I did not have time to mention on the show, that I am truly ashamed to say I have not experienced. For whatever reason...

Frugal Fare

Charred-glazed Filet of Beef at Hollywood Brown Derby, $43.00

“Cheap food isn’t good, and good food isn’t cheap,” is one of the phrases my family lives by, but we are also realists.  Dining plan or not, we have no plans to eat at Signature Dining restaurants like Narcoossee’s and Flying Fish Café every night.  While the meal may be covered, gratuities are not...
