Picture Perfect Lights to Brighten Your Nights

. WOW! This picture says it all. I am truly at a loss for words right now. I would love to tell you how wonderfully the Imagineers decorated the parks at Walt Disney World this year, but that wouldn’t give them the accolades they deserve. Perhaps I should continue with a few more pictures to...

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Some Walt Disney World fans are starting to question this when it comes to the resort’s numerous hard ticket events. The tipping point seemed to be Disney’s announcement of its newest dessert party: the Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle....
