Overcoming the Drop
November 10, 2013
As an avid teenage Disney fanatic, I found myself aggravated at the one ride out of all four Walt Disney World theme parks that I simply could not ride: the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. The Tower is a truly spectacular ride -- it incorporates intricate theming and an incredible storyline, based on the hit series, The Twilight Zone, with narrations by a very believable "Rod Serling." It is definitely an Imagineering feat, and an unforgettable experience. I wanted to appreciate the ride in all of its glory, but first I had to overcome a little fear of mine.

Kermit the Frog will find it IS easy being green when his artfully crafted character topiary debuts during the 21st Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival presented by HGTV March 5 to May 18, 2014, at Walt Disney World Resort. With flamboyance to spare, a floral Miss Piggy will join Kermit and his blooming banjo in the World Showcase topiary display.
Nearly 100 topiaries will animate the landscape during the 75 days when Epcot transforms to a rainbow-hued wonderland of sweeping gardens and exhibits. Back for a second year: outdoor food-and-beverage marketplaces exclusive to this festival that feature sweet and savory bites worthy of indulgence. After debuting at the 2013 festival, the marketplaces will return with new menu items such as Piggylicious Bacon Cupcakes.

Taking a Trip with Grade School Aged Children
October 28, 2013
No more diaper bags. No more strollers. Hooray! Your kids are in grade school and are itching for a trip to Walt Disney World. This may just be the absolute best age to take kids for that Disney vacation. Grade-schoolers are on their way to becoming more independent, can get around on their own two feet, and are starting to develop their own ideas, interests and opinions. They are still young enough to delight in the magic, the characters and the new experiences, but are old enough to really start to help with the planning. Many families feel that the best time to take the kids is when they are this age. Here are a few things that will help with planning and make your visits fun and as low-stress as possible.
