Best Disney Rooms For Families of 5 or More

We have been a family of five, traveling to various vacation destinations, for nearly 20 years. It has always frustrated me that so few hotels can accommodate five people. Well, at least it used to! Over the years, MANY family vacation destinations, including the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, have worked hard to help [...]

Gap Year Tuesday

So, if you missed last Tuesday's update, please go here and get caught up! But in case you're busy, here's the bottom line: I am going to spend one year (starting in June of 2018) traveling, writing, meeting people and experiencing new things. The purpose of this time is for me to decide what I [...]

Friday Disney Day!

I've decided on Fridays we're going to write about Disney. By we, of course, I mean me. So we are just about 60 days away from our next trip and we are SO EXCITED! We can make our FP reservations on Sunday and I have everything all lined up because of course I do. So [...]

The Next Chapter

I am 47 years old. I feel it's important that we start there because it is, in many ways, the perfect age. Scratch that. Not in many ways. It IS the perfect age. At least it is for me. I'm getting ready to enter a new chapter. Already I can hear the orchestra warming up [...]

My Biggest Organization Challenges

But then again, pretty much everything I tried to write about felt stupid, so we'll just go with this. If you haven't already, please consider donating MONEY (not stuff) to a cause you love. The Red [...]

Why We DON’T Do The Disney Dining Plan

You've pre-paid for your meals ahead of time (no un-magically big credit card bill to come home to), you don't have to worry about how much anything costs (it's "included"), and you can really [...]

Walt Disney World Reviews Part 2: THE FOOD!

Let me start by saying, I am NOT a food blogger. I don't even take pictures of what I eat. So this will not be on caliber with real food bloggers, many of whom I love and admire! But, as most humans do, I enjoy a good meal, especially at Disney!  And we had a [...]

Disney World Trip Report and Reviews! Part One: Contemporary Resort

I wasn't going to do an actual trip report, and this really won't be in the traditional sense. Honestly, the trip happened so last minute and I didn't take many pictures because I was too busy having fun! But I would like to review a few of the things we did, a few of them [...]
