    Kim Tries: Tonga Toast

    Tonga Toast is my new love. Being married has been great, sure, but Tonga Toast is heaven on a plate, and I bet what Disney serves is even better than what I managed to make at home. You guessed it! (Or maybe you didn’t, but I’m going to pretend you did.) I tried the recipe from Disney Parks Blog to make my own at-home Tonga Toast. It went marvelously.

    Christmas at Ft. Wilderness Campground

    Christmas at Ft Wilderness Resort and Campground– Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is a destination within a destination. I have previously posted about how you should really put this resort on your radar.  Christmas at Ft. Wilderness Resort and Campground is extra, to say the least.

    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’s BoardWalk Inn

    Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is one of 3 deluxe resorts (the other 2 are Yacht Club and Beach Club) nestled around Crescent Lake between Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot. During each of the past 3 Augusts, Ben and I have stayed at one of these 3 gorgeous resorts, finishing our trio just a couple of weeks ago at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
