With the runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon coming up this weekend, I was reflecting on how far I’ve come as a runner. I remember when I first started – it came to me clear as day. It was early January after college graduation and I was sitting at my apartment desk wondering what I was going to fill my time other than the two jobs … Continue reading 10 Years of Running Has Taught Me…
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!!

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
I’ve got to preface this with a note that my next update will be about the new Pandora land at Animal Kingdom and I’m super geeked about how the previews went. But more about that next time. Cause it’s about to get real. GET REAL. I think it’s fair to say that most people spend an above average amount of time planning their Disney trip. … Continue reading Planning the BEST DAY EVER at Magic Kingdom. For serious planners only!
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

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!

I’ll be the first to admit that before moving to Florida, my expectations of Animal Kingdom were similar to many folks….it’s a glorified zoo. Hop on a few fast rides, hitch a ride on the safari and call it a day by late afternoon. I’ve now come to fully appreciate the park SOOOO much more but it’s all in the approach. And even better….the park … Continue reading New at Disney: Animal Kingdom Open at Night!
