Planning a Trip with Older TeensPlanning a Trip with Older Teens
March 11, 2015
Our trips have changed immensely since our first trip to the World, years ago when the girls were toddlers. Daughter #1 has just turned 20 (!) and at 17, Daughter #2 only has a few more months of being the "Child" on our Disney reservations. One of the things that I have realized is that it was during our trips in the tween and teen years when the girls really cemented their love of Disney. If you reach that point and your kids are still willing to drag themselves out of bed for park openings, you have done your job correctly. If not, no worries, a few adjustments, and you can maintain family harmony during your Disney vacations. Here are a few observations and tips, which might be helpful as you plan a trip with your not-so-little ones:

Florida might be a subtropical paradise, but it does get cold here at times, as this week's front proves.

Be Our Guest Hidden MickeysBe Our Guest Hidden Mickeys
January 27, 2015
I stood in line for lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. You guessed it: I waited quite a while in that line, but I did enjoy studying the impressive details around the Beast's Castle. What do you think about this image in the rock wall? It's on the back of the partial wall behind the check-in station, on the left side just as you walk onto the entrance bridge toward the restaurant. Do the three circles make a Hidden Mickey?

 

Seniors View of Walt Disney WorldSeniors View of Walt Disney World
January 27, 2015
I've been reading touring plans, guide books and online reports, and found a lack of reports from seniors. I know that there are a lot of "us" out there who love going to Disney no matter what our age! We love the magic of it all and that we can be "10-year-olds" again the minute we step into Walt Disney World.

It is different for us, though. We are not able to walk as fast or do as much all at once as we once were -- but in no way does that stop us from enjoying Walt Disney World! In fact, now we try to go to WDW every year, and we will be going again in less than two weeks.
