I was reminded during our recent visit to Walt Disney World how much my kids – and most kids! – adore Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  We had a chance to meet Jake and his crew last spring and have enjoyed watching Jake on Disney Junior ever since. Jake and the Neverland Pirates costumes will…

As I began to write this post I started by counting how many times I have been to Walt Disney World.  When I realized that I couldn’t keep count, I stopped trying, honestly feeling a little embarrassed.  Some people enjoy take-out a couple of times a week, some go to Starbucks every morning on their…

A Magical Anniversary

Last week my husband and I did something that we very rarely do – we took vacation at the same time. When he travels for work, I hold down the fort at home and likewise, when I travel for work, he telecommutes, taking over my daily tasks of getting the kids ready for school and…

Mamavation Monday: Blogger vs. Bambi

It’s official.  Last week I registered for Disney’s Halloween 5K October 1st at Animal Kingdom.  I’ve been considering visiting Walt Disney World that weekend for a long time because October 1st is the 40th Anniversary of the day Walt Disney World first opened.  To make it more alluring, my children have a day and a…

Disney Fairies at the Magic Kingdom

When I first heard about the Fantasyland expansion at the Magic Kingdom, the plan included an entire section for Disney Fairies.  During the revision process, the section of the Pixie Hollow area of the new Fantasyland didn’t make the cut.   The removal of Mickey’s Toontown Fair displaced both the Mickey and Friends meet and…

FREE Dining at Walt Disney World

One of the questions I am asked most often about planning a trip to the World is, “How can I save money on a Walt  Disney World vacation?”  While there are many tricks to saving money both before and during your Walt Disney World vacation, one of the main ways to save is to book…

Three weeks ago I wrote about the sneaky pictures of the Fantasyland Expansion as seen from the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride.  I suggested that the metal framework in the picture may in fact be the beginnings of what would become Belle’s village.  Last week the Disney Parks Blog took us behind the scenes and…

Disney Updates and Sneak Peeks

How do you know that your husband loves you?  When you’re in a conference all day, he is riding Dumbo with the kids, and he thinks to pull out the camera to snap this behind the scenes photo of the Fantasyland Expansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. It’s so exciting to see the progress…
