Bonus Disney Day: Hollywood Studios

The day after our Magic Kingdom and Chef Mickey’s adventure, most of our family started their journey home, but we were very lucky to have a few more Disney hours ahead. A good friend (the friend who introduced my husband and me, actually!) and his wife both work at Disney World, and they offered to…

Magic and Meals with Mickey & Friends

There are lots of magical places in Disney World, but I firmly believe most of the magic is in Magic Kingdom! I couldn’t wait to watch my nieces experience this place for the first time. We arrived nice and early, and after some quick photos in front of the castle my husband and I brought…

An Awesome Animal Kingdom Adventure

¡Bienvenido a Miami!

Miami in wintertime is a beautiful thing- especially when your family, friends, and coworkers back in the Northeast are shoveling out from a snowstorm. My husband and I were invited to a wedding in Miami, and we decided to arrive a day early for a little R & R. We spent our time eating great…

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

With the holiday season behind us but lots of winter still ahead, it seems only fitting that I’m using magical Disney memories to keep my heart warm. This past November I was lucky enough to join my sister, mother, and grandmother (affectionately known as Grandy) for a long weekend at the Walt Disney World resort.…
