    Disney World Value Resorts: My family and I have stayed at every level of Disney resort: Deluxe, Moderate, and Value. Although each level is great, we keep going back to the Values.

But before we dive on into those reasons, below I will list the review articles that I have (so far) written about the Value Resort- All-Star Movies All-Star Music All-Star Sports Okay, let’s dive into this post and see what makes these resorts so great! 1. The Disney Feel Out of every resort we have stayed at, the Value Resorts stand out with that Disney feel. Don’t get me wrong,…

    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…

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom: A Beginners Guide

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is something that my family has only just recently started to get into. I have heard about it before, but never really looked into it. I honestly thought it was just another thing that Disney wanted us to fork money over to, because a Disney vacation isn’t expensive enough, right? Well, I was very wrong! Turns out, this is a FREE activity. Not only is it free, but it’s actually a lot of fun! My 4-year-old son (and 27-year-old husband) had a blast running around Magic Kingdom on our last trip playing this game. In this article, I will explain what it is, how it works,…

    A Complete Guide to MagicBands

    To me, MagicBands are basically magic. I mean, it says it all in the name! You technically don’t need MagicBands while visiting Walt Disney World. but it does make your life a whole lot easier. And I am 100% for making life easier. Here is a complete Guide to MagicBands! 1. What are MagicBands? I am so glad you asked! (I am just going to assume that you asked). Anyway, MagicBands are the most magic-filled jewelry that you will ever own. They are bracelets that use RF technology to store your specific information. You match them up (“Mickey to Mickey” as you will hear Castmembers say) to various touch points…

    Getting a Letter from Mickey and Friends!

    Letter from Mickey Mouse: Do you have a child that is just as obsessed with Mickey Mouse as my son is? My son, who is 4 years old, is constantly talking about how Mickey is his friend. He thinks that they are best pals and misses him so much when we aren’t in Disney World. And since we live in Connecticut, we don’t make it to Disney nearly as often as we would both like. He truly gets very sad because he misses his ‘best friend’ so much! I went on a hunt. I was determined to figure out a way to help my son feel better in between Disney…

    Crash Course on Surviving Disney With a Toddler or Baby

    Disney 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 this…

    How to Keep You and Your Family Cool in Disney

    Keep Cool in Disney: I often hear people ask, “If I go to Disney World this month or that month, how will the temperature be?”  And I have the answer for you! It will be HOT. No matter what, you will experience hot portions in the day. Especially if you are from a northern state like me. Anything above 70 seems to be hot. And then there is my son. He is a sweaty mess if the temperature gets above 50. Actually, he sweats no matter what the temperature is.  So here I have compiled a list of things that will help you keep you and your children as cool…
