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…
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.
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!
A dining review of the Makahiki Character Breakfast at Disney's Aulani resort in Hawaii!
Take a tour of the Deluxe Studio at Aulani!
Though not flanked by a Haunted Mansion, Aulani is still unmistakably “Disney.” Among other things, that means the Imagineers who worked on the resort put care into every design choice made. It also means guests can take tours to learn more about those decisions!
I told you I’d be coming at you with all the Aulani articles, so I hope you’re ready! We’re starting a Laniwai, where Ben and I splurged for our honeymoon and booked massages! There was so much more to the spa than just the services we paid for and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Last Monday, I had the bittersweet pleasure of coming home from a magical honeymoon at Aulani, Disney’s resort in Ko Olina on Oahu, Hawaii. There’s so much I can’t wait to share with you about our amazing trip and the Disney touches at our wedding, but first, I want to give a quick overview of Aulani.
Just because I love Disney, it doesn’t mean I love every attraction, show, or treat Disney has to offer. My skip list is about those park attractions I’d pass up. It’s not all negativity here, though — I offer up an alternative I’d much rather do instead! When it comes to It’s Tough to be a Bug, I’d rather do anything else. Anything. Including sitting and counting back from 7000 by 14s.
Epcot’s Top Attractions: Picking favorite attractions always feels a little bit blasphemous — shouldn’t we love them equally, like children? The cold, hard truth is that we don’t. There are some that have a hold tight on us and make us feel like spending hours of our lives standing in line is a brilliant idea. Here, I’m going to take on Epcot and pick my Top 5 attractions. When I first thought of this task with Epcot, I figured it’d be easy — there aren’t that many “attractions” in Epcot, so how hard could this be? A MASSIVE portion of the park is the World Showcase, and it felt like…
