    Kim’s Top 5 – Hollywood Studios Edition

    I was hesitant to do this post without having visited Galaxy’s Edge (and without both attractions at Galaxy’s Edge being open), but I’ve got almost 6 months until my next trip to WDW, and I’m simply not that patient. I’ll revisit this list after I head over to Batuu (and maybe again after checking out Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!), but for now, here are my top 5 favorite attractions at Hollywood Studios!! You can also check out my Top 5 Attractions for Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom!

    Top 10 Rides That You Won’t Mind Waiting in the Queue

    Disney World Queues: At Disney World, lines tend to be LONG. So long, that when you see a 60-minute wait time for Flight of Passage, you automatically think that that’s a short amount of time. Disney World also has implemented a system called FastPass +. But sometimes, there aren’t any Fastpassaes available for that ride. Never fear! Disney has made (for many of their rides) standing in line just as fun as riding the attraction! Okay, maybe not as fun, but you get the point. Here is the list of the top 7 best ones in no particular order. Dumbo– Magic Kingdom Okay, I am starting with one that might…

    A Disney Wedding

    After careful consideration, Ben and I decided that a wedding in Disney World wasn’t the right choice for us. The proposal in the Wilderness Lodge was perfect (read about that here), and we love Disney and know they’d orchestrate a gorgeous wedding, but it just wasn’t quite the right fit. Since Disney is something we both love, and something we love to enjoy together, we decided the day wouldn’t feel right if it was completely without Disney. Here’s how we worked with the Mouse to bring Disney to our Rhode Island wedding.

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies: For kids with food allergies, Halloween can be a scary time (and I don’t mean the decorations). You never know where your allergen can be lurking. But, trick-or-treating at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is, as it says in its name, really not so scary! Disney World participates in something called the Teal Pumpkin Project. If you are unfamiliar with that, it’s when families put a Teal Pumpkin (teal is the color of allergy awareness) out on their porch to let other families know that they either have allergy-friendly candy/snacks or nonfood treats such as stickers. Disney implements this so well that kids (or kids…

    Tips for Going to Disney World on a Budget

    Disney World on a Budget: Disney World is expensive! (I feel like I have started off a few of my blog post like this before- because it’s true!). And for those that know me, know that I am a cheapo. I like to cut corners and save money wherever I can. Even when it comes to Disney. My husband and I are also really big on budgeting (more so my husband, but that’s a different story), and we live in a one-income household in one of the most expensive places to live in the country. (looking at you CT). So if we want to go to Disney World or Disneyland,…

    Top 7 Ways to Spend a Rest Day at Disney World!

    Rest Day Disney World: Disney World is magical, exciting, happy, fun, wonderful, and so many other positive feelings rolled into one. For many, it’s what people call “Home.” But, Disney World can also be overwhelming, hectic, and a little crazy — especially when you have kids. Taking a break is always something I advise people to do when they are on their Disney vacation. Sometimes that is very hard to do. We might be thinking, “I spend all of my hard-earned money on this vacation. I am not going to spend it doing nothing.” And believe me, I get it! But I feel that if you don’t take a break in the…
