    Crash Course on Surviving Disney World With a Toddler or Baby

    Disney World with a Toddler: I’m going to be honest here… Toddlers are hard! They aren’t babies anymore, but there are not big kids yet. They are kind of in the weird in-between stage where you can’t wait for them to grow up, but, at the same time, you keep asking yourself where the time has gone. It’s an emotional rollercoaster all around! So, taking toddlers to the happiest place on earth is no small task. I am past the toddler stage (thank goodness), so I feel like someone might be able to learn from my trials and errors. In this article, I hope to show you how worth it…

    Great Activities To Do at WDW that Also Make Awesome (and FREE) Souvenirs

    FREE. Who doesn’t love something that is free? I am a self-proclaimed cheap-o and LOVE when I see that I can get something for free.

I hope you enjoy this list! 1. Collecting Stickers Around the Parks Who doesn’t love stickers?

    Polynesian Resort: Deluxe Studio Review- Disney World

    Polynesian Resort- Deluxe Studio Review- A few weeks ago, I ran through a 3-part series about DVC basics. (Click Here for part 1!) I absolutely love being a DVC member! I aim to someday stay at each of the DVC resorts, and was so happy to check off the Polynesian when I last visited Disney in November! Let me tell you all about it. Spoiler alert: it was fantastic. Here we go into the Polynesian Resort Deluxe Studio Review. Convenience There’s something especially magical about staying at a resort on the monorail loop. Even though the monorail could use a good sprucing, it’s inherently “Disney,” and the easy access it…

    10 Disney World Must-Dos

    Disney World Must Dos: We all know it’s physically impossible to do everything on any WDW trip, unless you were to stay for a whole month, and maybe not even then. There are certain things, though, that you just know you’ve got to try your darnest to do each time. It’s been far too long since my last trip, so I’m just going to reminisce for a bit… 10. Eat a Mickey Pretzel – We all know calories don’t count in WDW (shhhh. Let me live this lie in peace), so you know my trips are full of treats. I know it’s probably just like a ton of other soft…

    Your Kid’s First Haircut at WDW

    Their first words. Their first steps. The first time they slept through the night (my son was 13 months when he finally slept through the night…and yes, I’m just a little bitter about that…). As a parent, there are a lot of “firsts” that we remember. One of the memorable firsts is their first haircut. And what can make it more magical than having your kid’s first haircut at Disney! I find that a lot of people don’t realize this… but did you know that there is a barber shop right on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom? It’s called the Harmony Barber Shop and it’s the cutest little place! The Harmony Barber is located near the very…

    Dining Review: Citricos

    Citricos at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa: On our last visit down to Disney, Ben and I enjoyed our first dinner at Citricos at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, and it was magnificent! Since we visited the last week of November, everything was decked out for the holidays, so a trip these days would be a bit different, but I’ve got a feeling the quality would be just as exemplary…
