    Top 7 Ways to Stay Healthy and Not Get Sick for Your Disney Vacation

    Stay Healthy at Disney: We all know the drill- you have a vacation coming up, and then all of a sudden, there seems to be a stomach bug outbreak at your kid’s school. It seems to NEVER FAIL. Or maybe that’s just me and my luck. It always seems like the weeks leading up to our Disney vacation some sort of sickness is going around; whether it’s the flu, stomach bug, or one of a million other things. Also, Disney World is basically a petri dish of germs, let’s be honest. It’s hard to stay healthy at Disney. Anywhere that has an abundance of kids is bound to be like…

    Kim Tries: Disney Cupcakes

    I spend far too much of my time down the rabbit hole of DIY (do it yourself) on Pinterest and Instagram. I’m constantly seeing adorable projects or perfect desserts and thinking “I can totally do that!” only to later discover, “Oh, oh no I cannot.” This crushing defeat doesn’t keep me down for long. It’s a good thing, too, because every once in a while, I find a project that is actually doable and its successful completion is so satisfying. A couple of years ago, I found some entirely doable Disney cupcakes that I want to share with you!

    Tusker House: Top 5 Reasons You Need to Eat Here

    Disney World Tusker House: What do you do when one person in your party will eat anything and everything (spoiler – that’s me), and someone else in your party only eats maybe a handful of foods and refuses everything else (another spoiler –  that’s my five-year-old son)?  Going out to eat must be hard, right?  Wrong!  Not at Disney World, anyway.  So many restaurants there cater to adventurous eaters and picky eaters alike.  This blog post will be all about Tusker House over in the Animal Kingdom.

    Disney’s Riviera Resort: Top 4 Reasons to Visit

    You don’t have to stay at Disney’s Riviera Resort to enjoy it. There are plenty of reasons to visit the resort after it opens December 16. Here are my top four. Topolino’s Terrace BreakfastCharacter dining is a great way to have one-on-one quality interactions with your favorites. Topolino’s features Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy – a real powerhouse combo of characters. All four represent different arts. Mickey is a painter, Minnie is a writer, Donald is a sculptor and Daisy is a dancer. And they all ham it up, playing their parts so well. Much like Tusker House at Animal Kingdom and Chef Mickey at the Contemporary Resort, this breakfast…

    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.
