Celebrating 30 WDW Favorites

Well, we all have to turn thirty sometimes. Right? RIGHT? Ahem. I’m well-rested from an extended trip to Orlando (thanks to “blizzard” Juno)… even a week later.

At Disney Again: A Visit to Princess Fairytale Hall

I visited the Magic Kingdom last Saturday to try two new things: test out FastPass+ with my new MagicBand and explore the new Princess Fairytale Hall.

August 2007: No Grim Grinning Ghosts

I don’t remember too many life-altering closures when we used to visit Walt Disney World every August back in the day.

A Peek at the Parade

My husband isn’t much of a parade person, and since our trips are normally short and we like to keep moving, we rarely stop and wait for one to begin. (I guess this doesn’t make me a huge parade person either. I never make a fuss about not seeing them. But if I had my […]

Would You Look at That: Sights at Walt Disney World

(Hey the characters aren’t the only characters, if you know what I mean.) Honestly, there are no limits to what you might see… whether it’s a guest or a part of the theme […]

We’re traveling back to 1998 today with a glimpse at my one and only ride on Magic Kingdom’s Skyway. An opening day attraction, the Skyway, which transported guests from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland, closed in 1999. During summer trips to the Jersey Shore, my dad and I would always take a ride on the skyride in […]
