Disney During COVID: Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of our favorite places to visit. It has a wonderful atmosphere and an entire savannah full of animals. It is a hotel built around a zoo. I’m going to give you my thoughts after our one night stay in June 2020.
Disney World Reopening Plan: What we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! The Walt Disney Company has presented a reopening plan for Walt Disney World to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force. Jim MacPhee, Senior Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer at the Walt Disney Company, presented the plan at today’s meeting (May 27, 2020). While the plan still needs to go through additional approval processes, we currently have some key details related to the proposed reopening.
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. I personally believe that it is hands down one of the best buffets on Walt Disney World property. From the food, to the atmosphere, to…
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. Not all lobbies are created equal, though, so check out my top 5 WDW lobbies here.
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.
I am recently back from the most magical place on earth and battling the Disney blues by reliving some fantastic new memories. During our last visit, Ben and I were able to enjoy a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) perk called Moonlight Magic at Animal Kingdom — and it sure was magical!
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!
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.
