Five Non-Character Dining Options in Disney World That Will Still Entertain Your Kids!


Character Dining in Disney World is amazing and an absolute must-do dining experience in my opinion, especially if you have kids. However, character dining is often expensive and it also isn’t usually the most relaxed meal you are ever going to enjoy with your family. The rush to the buffet station and back to your table […]


Getting the Minnie Ride Around at Walt Disney World


One of the more annoying things in Disney World is when you want to travel from one resort to another resort. Disney transportation just doesn’t allow for easy travel between resorts. Thanks to a new service, and for a little fee, you can take a Minnie Van, those cute little white polka dotted red vans […]


How to Go to Tokyo Disneyland for Less Than the Price of Walt Disney World


Disney fans often think that going to the Disney Parks overseas is an unobtainable goal. At the top of those unobtainable places for me was Tokyo Disney Resort. It is common to hear over and over again that Tokyo is insanely expensive. That is false. With a bit of planning and budgeting, you can go to Tokyo Disney for the […]


Conquering the Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream


Do you feel the need to eat your body weight in ice cream? Have you ever wanted to eat years worth of calories at one time? Well, you are in luck because Walt Disney World has a snack for you. The word snack is probably the understatement of the century. It’s more like a sugar adventure […]


6 Reasons to Utilize Walt Disney World’s Minnie Van Service


We’ve all seen the pictures of the new stylish Chevy Traverses that have been wrapped in a custom design to look like Minnie Mouse’s dress. Some of us have even had the opportunity to ride in one of them since they’ve started their testing in July. But why would you want to use a flat […]


A Tale of The Daily Poutine and a Canadian


This born and raised Canadian was lucky enough to spend some time living in Orlando Florida.  Like anyone who moves to a different country, there are certain things I missed from home. The Canadian Pavilion could provide some relief but it was always nice to have more. You can imagine how excited I was when I […]


Disney Stores Around the World: Dublin


For those of us who really need a Disney Parks fix, the Disney Store can deliver a dose of much-needed magic when traveling to the parks just isn’t feasible. While I’d argue that all Disney Stores have something interesting to offer, stores located in domestic and international city hubs can be especially exciting. These locations […]


When it Rains on Your Parade


The poncho: a standard piece of Disney park bag equipment found on every single “what to pack” list there is. Anyone familiar with Florida weather will immediately understand why, but let’s explore your options for traveling amidst torrential downpours and storms while in Disney. While a flimsy yet fashionable sheet of plastic will keep you […]


Planning the Perfect Disney Vacation – from Abroad!


So, you got to the time of the year when you have to decide your next vacation. Deep inside you know what your destination could be, but somehow you struggle and try to deny the only thing that comes to your mind: another visit to a Disney Park. OK, no big news, we are all […]


When You Wish Upon a Star, and It Lands on Your Head


The best advice I can share with fellow Disney vacationers is to understand that expectations are high (as they should be for such an investment), but even Disney can disappoint. Outside factors (those beyond Imagineer, cast member and even Mickey himself’s control) will interfere with your memory-making. I have grouped these interruptions into three categories: […]
