REVIEW: Pandora at Animal Kingdom

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

Planning the BEST DAY EVER at Magic Kingdom. For serious planners only!

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.

Just Do It – Best Beach Day Trips from Orlando

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

New at Disney: Animal Kingdom Open at Night!

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!

Who gets their hair cut at Disney?

Tons of people apparently!  This past week my little son, babe son, and I had a free day and took a short trip to Magic Kingdom.  I’ve always known about the opportunity for girls to go to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and be transformed into a princess, but I wanted to check out what a regular haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop was all about….and … Continue reading Who gets their hair cut at Disney?
