    The Maps of Disney

    Maps of Disney: Whether you have been to Disney World or Disneyland 100 times, or you have never been before- looking over a map of the parks is very important! The Disney parks are an ever-changing landscape. Something seems to be different every time you visit. If you have never been to the parks before, it is especially important that you try to get the lay of the land. Well, do I have good news for you! Here at Disney Dream Co., it is one of our goals to be a place of reference when looking for park info. I have compiled a list of Disney World maps for you…

    Courtesy of the Imagineers, Walt Disney World features some of the most magnificently themed resort hotels on the continent. Each is carefully curated to transport its guests to whatever destination the Imagineers transplanted into central Florida.

    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.

    Top Magic Kingdom Rides and Attractions for Toddlers and Babies

    Magic Kingdom for Toddlers and Babies: Disney World is a place for everyone. Young, old, and young at heart. In my humble opinion, there is no ‘right’ age to take your kid to Disney World. There are benefits to take them when they are babies (they are FREE), and there are benefits to taking them when they are older. But Disney World makes sure that there is something for everyone at every age. Lots of times, when you go to an amusement park, there might not be that much for the younger kiddos. But not at Disney! Here is a list of things that those young kids (and everyone in…

    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!

    Top 10 Rides That You Won’t Mind Waiting in the Queue

    Disney World Queues: At Disney World, lines tend to be LONG. So long, that when you see a 60-minute wait time for Flight of Passage, you automatically think that that’s a short amount of time. Disney World also has implemented a system called FastPass +. But sometimes, there aren’t any Fastpassaes available for that ride. Never fear! Disney has made (for many of their rides) standing in line just as fun as riding the attraction! Okay, maybe not as fun, but you get the point. Here is the list of the top 7 best ones in no particular order. Dumbo– Magic Kingdom Okay, I am starting with one that might…

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies: For kids with food allergies, Halloween can be a scary time (and I don’t mean the decorations). You never know where your allergen can be lurking. But, trick-or-treating at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is, as it says in its name, really not so scary! Disney World participates in something called the Teal Pumpkin Project. If you are unfamiliar with that, it’s when families put a Teal Pumpkin (teal is the color of allergy awareness) out on their porch to let other families know that they either have allergy-friendly candy/snacks or nonfood treats such as stickers. Disney implements this so well that kids (or kids…

    Tips for Going to Disney World on a Budget

    Disney World on a Budget: Disney World is expensive! (I feel like I have started off a few of my blog post like this before- because it’s true!). And for those that know me, know that I am a cheapo. I like to cut corners and save money wherever I can. Even when it comes to Disney. My husband and I are also really big on budgeting (more so my husband, but that’s a different story), and we live in a one-income household in one of the most expensive places to live in the country. (looking at you CT). So if we want to go to Disney World or Disneyland,…
