I'm a lover of all things Disney! I have an adorable son named Andy (after Toy Story), and an amazing hubby named Aaron. For my family and I, Disney isn’t just a hobby or someplace we casually go when on vacation, it's a way of life. We try to go back 'Home' twice a year. My hope for this blog is to help families navigate their crazy, magical times through Disney and reach their Disney Dream!

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom: A Beginners Guide

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is something that my family has only just recently started to get into. I have heard about it before, but never really looked into it. I honestly thought it was just another thing that Disney wanted us to fork money over to, because a Disney vacation isn’t expensive enough, right? Well, I was very wrong! Turns out, this is a FREE activity. Not only is it free, but it’s actually a lot of fun! My 4-year-old son (and 27-year-old husband) had a blast running around Magic Kingdom on our last trip playing this game. In this article, I will explain what it is, how it works,…

It is one of my favorite perks while staying at a Walt Disney World Resort! But not all resorts do this awesome perk (which is called “Service Your Way”). Read on for more info on how to get…

    Movies You Should See Before Heading to WDW and Character Reference List

    About a year ago, the song “Be Our Guest” came on my Disney Pandora Station. My then three-year-old son says, “Mama, what movie is this song from?” You should have seen the look of pure horror on my face. It was at that moment that I realized I have failed as a parent. My son, who has been to Disney several times now, and even ate at the Beast’s castle (the restaurant is called Be Our Guest for crying out loud AND it’s his favorite restaurant), did NOT know that that song was from Beauty and the Beast. So, I figured I needed to correct this and make him watch…

    The Magic Behind PhotoPass and Memory Maker

    They say a photo speaks a thousand words. If that’s true, then photos from a Disney Photopass Photographer must speak at least two thousand words! I don’t know how they do it, but they always seem to capture my most favorite photos of my family. My son, who I happen to think is the cutest kid in the world, just doesn’t take photos well. He’s not very photogenic. But somehow, they always capture him looking cute! In this article, I will explain what the difference is between Photopass and Memory Maker, if it’s worth you getting it for your vacation, and other need to know information.
