Hi friends! You’ll want to share this one to all your fellow food lovers!!! It’s time for one of my favorite annual events, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!! Once fall rolls around, or as I like to call it “Ohio Summer,” the temperatures return to breathable and I finally am brave enough to venture outside. The festival runs from late August until early November. … Continue reading Get There: Epcot Food and Wine Festival
Today is the day! The official opening dedication ceremony for Pandora, Disney’s long awaited new world within Animal Kingdom. This past week we had a chance to get an early preview of the land. I will be extremely open in saying that my expectations were low. Clearly Disney has the capabilities to produce great products, but in term’s of how much I cared for the movie … Continue reading REVIEW: Pandora at Animal Kingdom
Yeah! Summer vacation season is knocking on our door! Several years ago I made such a trip to Orlando and we got to a point where we said that we needed to take a day off and hit the beach. Orlando has tons to explore but we know families (and have been that family) where repeated days of itineraries can put everyone at their breaking point. So if you … Continue reading Just Do It – Best Beach Day Trips from Orlando
It seems every week I’m hearing of a new family or friends heading to Disney as summer break approaches so I’m going to be passing on some tips for you all over the next few posts! Let’s make it a Funday Monday and check out this AMAZING new shop at Disney Springs. It opened two weeks ago and I put this on my list of … Continue reading Disney’s Grown Up Dress Shop
If HappyGoSunny and frankly, motherhood, had a heroine, it most certainly would be Moana. Mulan was always my go to Disney princess. Strong willed and ready to fight for her family, she was always tearing it up bringing honor to us all. Yet Moana speaks to me so much more. I love her so much that I’ve openly said I’d be willing to play a … Continue reading Why Moana Is Perfection
Hi everyone! I’ve been fielding a lot of calls and messages from wonderful friends who are heading down to Florida for spring break and summer asking what they should check out. Disney is such a fantastic place but as anyone who has been there can tell you, while the parks are absolutely amazing they can also be exhausting!!! I’m a firm believer that if … Continue reading Is it summer yet? Checking out Disney’s Blizzard Beach!
Holy smokes I can’t believe I made it! This past weekend wrapped up my first ever Disney Half Marathon and I was so glad I took a chance to do it. If you’re ever considering a Disney race, read on to see what you’re in store for. The signups for this race are fierce as it’s got the one-two punch of taking place during Epcot’s Food … Continue reading Disney Wine&Dine Half Marathon Review!
I wasn’t going to do another post this week but I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that has happened in Orlando. It’s very surreal reading about both the nightclub tragedy and the drowning at Disney knowing that both took place right down the road. I’ll touch a little on both…but first I have one request. For all of my prayer warriors out … Continue reading Reflections from Orlando
As a Disney annual pass holder, I’ve realized there are basically three ways in which people plan their visit. I find that moms tend to be in the first category, grandparents in the second, and men in the third. Which means an awesome trip to one of these people does not equate to an awesome trip to a different person in their group. Let’s explore…. The planner. … Continue reading How to Approach Disney World
This past weekend we had a chance to explore the campgrounds at Walt Disney World. You may not have known that only a ferry ride from Magic Kingdom is a 750 acre campground that has cabins, tent campers, and RVs. Our days were filled with swimming, fishing, and Mickey ice cream. I find their website is vague on many things, so let’s break it down! Check … Continue reading Camping at Disney World
