2020 Adventures by Disney Itineraries released

If you have read my blog on Viva Italia, then you know how excited I am about the new itineraries being released.  Adventures by Disney is a guided tour to some of the most beautiful places in the world with the service and magic only Disney can bring.  I can not speak highly enough of these tours because they really are life changing.  I met some amazing friends, had some unbelievable experiences and can not wait to go on my next adventure.

Disney Cruise Line

Castaway Cay Cabanas

IMG_6966If you have been to Castaway Cay, you’ve likely noticed the ever coveted cabanas.  These are one of the hottest items of any Disney Cruise Line stop at their private island in The Bahamas.

What makes them so popular?  Mainly the luxury of having an amazing “home base”, but also for larger families, this is a great price for what all is included.

So what do you get with a cabana rental?  Currently you will get Continue reading “Castaway Cay Cabanas”

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”
