Hi everyone; I'm Kim. It'll come as no surprise that I'm a huge fan of all things Disney. I'm also a crazy cat lady (currently without cats), spastic crafter, and amateur Disneybounder. Living up in New England, I don't get to the parks as often as I'd like, so I try to bring Disney into my life at home, and hope to show you how to do the same!

    Kim’s Top 5 WDW Attraction Queues

    I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to wait in lines at Disney. Planning and strategic use of FastPasses can sometimes minimize those waits, but they’ll still exist. Disney knows its guests don’t want to wait, so it does its best to make the attraction queues as entertaining as possible; they become part of the attraction experience.

    Kim’s Top 5 – Hollywood Studios Edition

    I was hesitant to do this post without having visited Galaxy’s Edge (and without both attractions at Galaxy’s Edge being open), but I’ve got almost 6 months until my next trip to WDW, and I’m simply not that patient. I’ll revisit this list after I head over to Batuu (and maybe again after checking out Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!), but for now, here are my top 5 favorite attractions at Hollywood Studios!! You can also check out my Top 5 Attractions for Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom!

    A Disney Wedding

    After careful consideration, Ben and I decided that a wedding in Disney World wasn’t the right choice for us. The proposal in the Wilderness Lodge was perfect (read about that here), and we love Disney and know they’d orchestrate a gorgeous wedding, but it just wasn’t quite the right fit. Since Disney is something we both love, and something we love to enjoy together, we decided the day wouldn’t feel right if it was completely without Disney. Here’s how we worked with the Mouse to bring Disney to our Rhode Island wedding.

    Disney Skip List: Muppet Vision 3D

    I love Disney six ways to Sunday, but sometimes I think my beloved conglomerate really misses the mark. In the parks, I put those attractions that don’t really tickle my fancy onto a very (especially relative to what the parks offer) short “Disney Skip List.” You can read about what landed It’s Tough to be a Bug on this list here, but in this post, we venture over to Hollywood Studios to discuss the “bizarre in a not-so-charming way” Muppet Vision 3D.

    Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

    Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is one of 3 deluxe resorts (the other 2 are Yacht Club and Beach Club) nestled around Crescent Lake between Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot. During each of the past 3 Augusts, Ben and I have stayed at one of these 3 gorgeous resorts, finishing our trio just a couple of weeks ago at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. This time, though, we were treated to something truly magical – a room upgrade to a 2-story loft cottage with Club Level access.

    A Disney Proposal – A Most Magical Christmas

    By the time this post goes live, Ben and I will be enjoying part 2 of our honeymoon, down in Walt Disney World, so it seemed as good a time as any to share the story of our Disney proposal. On December 26, 2017, Ben kicked off our Disney vacation by proposing to me. Hopefully by now this isn’t a spoiler — I said yes! For months, and I mean months, before the trip, I knew it was coming, so here’s a little peek into the most impatient 8 months of my life. Seriously. I knew for 8 months. Before the Trip I feel like I know Ben really, really…

    Kim’s Top 5 Attractions – Animal Kingdom

    The “Top 5 Attractions” series really is one of the hardest to write - partly because picking favorites is always a little painful, but also because the parks are constantly changing! With my next Disney trip right around the corner (less than a week!), I’m hopping in with both feet, though, to list off my Top 5 Attractions at Animal Kingdom.

    Planning for Disney World – Basics

    Sitting down to start planning your Disney vacation can feel so overwhelming. Since fully embracing my Disney obsession, I feel like I’ve tailored my planning process to give me a vacation I can look forward to for months and that I can remember fondly for years. While my strategy may not be right for everybody (disclaimer: I don’t have children, and I’ve been told they change a thing or two when it comes to…oh, everything in life), hopefully I can share a tip or two that help you out!
