Spring Break 2020 Planning: Part 2

If you follow my blog, then you know I posted earlier about March Spring Break and some great options.  A very popular time is April, so as promised — here is Spring Break planning: Part 2! The goal is simple: give you some great options and go ahead and get Spring Break planned and checked off your list.  You have more options and better pricing, when you plan it early and while it may seem far away right now, once the holidays get closer time begins to fly.

Spring Break 2020 Planning

I know school just started for some and Spring Break seems very far away, but it will be here before you know it.  I know planning Spring Break can seem overwhelming at times and just trying to think of ideas is difficult too.  If you feel this way, then this post is for you. I find September and October are the best months to start planning Spring Break.  You will have more availability for your options, better pricing and also the satisfaction of checking that off your daunting to do list before the holidays are upon us.  The best part is I can help you with all of it and it will cost you the exact same if you did all the hard work yourself.

Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt

My husband and I were able to explore Disney Springs on Monday and check out a lot of the Christmas decor and the Christmas Tree Trail, which I loved.  We even partook in Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt.  Yes… We are kids at heart and even adults can hunt (without kids).  I recommend doing this while you are in Disney Springs.  First and foremost, it is FREE.  Whether you are doing it for yourself or with a child, you can not beat free.  I do wish some of the hiding spots would have been a little more of a challenge, but overall no complaints.  If it was a crowded night, it would have been much more challenging.  We were there on a Monday morning, so there were not too many other people.

Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs

I LOVE Christmas!  It is my favorite time of the year…I know how cliché I sound, but it is true.  I love the decorations and all the creativity going in to decorating.  The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs did not disappoint.  The trees are all themed for different movies or characters and the details are worth the visit.  The pictures do not do justice to some of these trees.  It felt like a mini-scavenger hunt finding all the little details within each tree.  Admittedly, there are definitely some trees that are WAY better than other trees.  As much of a Star Wars fan as my family has become, I felt the Star Wars tree was lacking in creativity compared to many of the other trees.

What age should I take my child to Disney?

Two is better than one.

This is one of the top questions I get and also one of the top debates people have over Disney.  At some point, everyone asks “What age should I take my child to Disney“.  I’m sure if you have talked about Disney at all, you have asked it too.  Some answers I have heard: “Don’t take them until after 5…You want them to remember it” , “Wait until first grade, so they understand it” or “Take them before they are 3, while they are free“.   I am a firm believer Continue reading “What age should I take my child to Disney?”

Dos and Don’ts of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) has surprisingly been around since 1983.  Party dates begin in early November and continue until right before Christmas.  There is nothing to get you more in the Christmas spirit, than Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  It truly brings my heart (and stomach) joy.  Over the years, we have come up with a great list of Dos and Don’ts.  Continue reading “Dos and Don’ts of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party”

Toy Story Land Weekend

The anticipation for the opening of Toy Story Land was incredibly high.  As many of you read in the post leading up to my last trip, I was beyond excited.  It was definitely one of my most memorable times in Disney World.  There was so much energy and so much excitement in the air.  It was hard to help getting wrapped up in all of it.  We arrived on Thursday late afternoon at Disney’s All-Star Music.  There was a small snafu with our room (yes, even travel agents have snafus).  Disney was Continue reading “Toy Story Land Weekend”
