How We Traveled for Free this Fall
This article is going to give you the quick and dirty of how my family of four took a five-day vacation to Mexico this fall for free.

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.

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.

Crash Course on Surviving Disney World With a Toddler or Baby
Disney World 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.
