Beat the Heat with the Water Parks at Walt Disney World

We all know that Florida can get HOT in the summer months, and there’s no better way to cool off than at one of Disney’s water parks.  Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are water parks that are not to be missed!  There is so much to see and do at these water parks that I recommend planning a free day to visit (or two to visit each one!). At Blizzard Beach there are three main areas with attractions to enjoy.  They have the green, purple and red slopes.  Each area has their own unique attractions for the family.  I love [...]

It's usually a quick shower, so it's not enough to ruin your day. But there are two ways to handle a rainy day in Disney.  You can either head back to your resort, or brave the raindrops and still have fun!

Family Vacations-Why Disney?

I’ve always felt that family vacations are a very important part of raising a family.  Taking a family vacation allows everyone, parents and children, to relax and forget about the stresses and distractions of normal life.  Our favorite family vacation is a Disney vacation.  Whether we go to Disney World, Disneyland or on a Disney cruise, the magic really allows us to connect as a family like no other place. When our family travels to Disney World, the magic takes over the instant we begin to walk down Main Street.  There’s just something about seeing that castle that takes us [...]

What makes the Disney Cruise Line the Best for Families?

If you're thinking of a family cruise, there's nothing better than a Disney cruise! There are a few things that set the Disney Cruise Line above the other cruise lines. For most itineraries, the Disney Cruise Line is more expensive than other cruise lines, but the extra cost is well worth it. These are the main reasons that I love the Disney Cruise Line: The staterooms. The staterooms on a Disney cruise ship are larger than on most other cruise lines. That help when you've got your children with you and lots of luggage to store. But the main thing [...]
