News from Disney Regarding Guest Assi...

As you may have noticed from my frequent trips to Walt Disney World, the “Resourceful Disney” category on this blog, or my incessant Disney-related tweets, I kind of like Disney.  I like Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, I fell in love with Disneyland Park in California last summer, I believe that the Disney Cruise Line…

This Week In Disney

While Disney vacations ideally mean disconnecting from work calls and email, for most people, they don’t mean disconnecting completely.  In fact, many of us enjoy including connectivity in our time in the parks from Foursquare check-ins… …to Instagram pics… …to periodic (or frequent) tweets. So for everyone who’s ever stood in line at Buzz Lightyear…

10 New Disney Experiences

When people ask me how often I’ve been to Walt Disney World, I nervously chuckle and say that I’m not sure.  The truth is – I’m really not sure.  Disney Parks and Resorts remain my family’s favorite places to escape from it all and unplug, surrounded by the magic of Disney and time with each…
