Last night, Disney released its latest round of layoffs. If ending the Disney College Program early and saying goodbye to some beloved smaller acts when the pandemic began felt like a slap in the face, last night’s layoffs felt like a punch in the stomach.

I am fairly certain that “raising your child in a pandemic” was not in any baby book I read when I was getting ready to have kids. With school approaching, I’ve found myself in a mental quandary (like everyone else).

This is our third year in Florida and Irma was definitely the most fierce hurricane we’ve been in to date. … Continue reading Riding Out the Storm: Hurricane Irma
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.
