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. Shows such as “Festival of the Lion King” and “Monsters Inc Laugh Floor” were given their official layoff notice. These … Continue reading Ear For Each Other
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). Usually around now I’m excitedly printing out those back to school supply lists but this year is a whole different type of prep. I’ve debated … Continue reading Back to School Pandemic Prep
Yesterday was the first step in the re-opening of Walt Disney World – the opening of Disney Springs. I wanted to get a first hand experience of the ups and downs of navigating Disney masked with my kiddos. For my boys, it was the first time they had done more than a car parade since mid-March and it was great to get out of the … Continue reading Your Guide to Disney with Face Masks!

This summer I’ve had a chance to catch up with wonderful friends and family across the country. Everywhere I went I had folks asking about “Disney stuff” or “Magic Bound stuff” and I realized that I never did a formal intro into this wonderful part of my life. As the first question always goes….I found out about this job just like any other – saw … Continue reading So tell me about your job….
One of the most unexpected positives of moving to Orlando has been the abundance of diverse backgrounds that people come from. In our town in Ohio, the minority percentage of the population was less than 1% so we are now on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. This past week, my two youngest sons and I were on a boat ride at Epcot when … Continue reading “I’ll have a taco and a burrito!!”…Lessons in Diversity
Prior to moving to Orlando, I had no idea what a food destination it was. Whenever you visit, do not head to a chain restaurant as you will be missing out on the tons of amazing specialty restaurants! One of my true foodie guilty pleasures are French cafes and this week I’ll talk about a few of them. If you are on vacation you cannot go … Continue reading My French Cafe

You can see a full list of participating restaurants … Continue reading Magical Dining Month
Today my four sons had their first ever romp through Orlando’s newest kid attraction, the Crayola Experience. Part hands on, part high tech, the Crayola Experience has something for everyone. There are 26 attractions but I think it’s helpful to break these down into groups so you can see if this is something you’d like to check out! Admission is $23 but there are multiple … Continue reading What is the Crayola Experience?
