Planning a Disney vacation is half the fun of a Disney vacation, right? For some of us, the sooner we can begin planning the better. There are so many things to consider: When to go? How to travel?

With My Disney Experience taking over the phones of guests at the Walt Disney World resort, it’s obvious that there just aren’t enough electrical outlets for all the charging that needs to be done. To say nothing of people using their phones for photos, texting and Facebook posting! Well, Disney is working on some changes for that with complimentary phone charging lockers that began testing in the Magic Kingdom today, April 25, 2014. Continue reading Magic Kingdom Tests Free Cell Charging Lockers

Looking for a different way to scare up some Disney fun this Halloween? Look no further than a Disney Cruise this year! The Halloween celebrations are going to be as spook-tacular as they are at the theme parks. From Disney characters in costume and frightfully fun Disney movies to haunted parties on deck and themed menu items like Witches Brew, Disney Cruise ships will be bewitched for Halloween. It’s time to eat, drink and be scary!
During late October, all Disney cruise ships transform into a ghoulish wonderland filled with hair-raising activities. There are special decorations, unique menu items in the restaurants, and themed dance parties on deck. The Halloween fun happens on a special day during every voyage setting sail in October.
As the saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas!” If that’s true, I can’t wait to see the excitement of the Lone Star State when the Disney Magic arrives in Galveston in September.

Captain Mickey already received a Texas-sized welcome when he visited to get ready for the ship’s arrival. Remember all the excitement when the Disney Magic sailed into New York earlier this year? I’m expecting an even bigger greeting from Texans in September! And, can you imagine how the Disney Magic will show it’s love for Texas?! Continue reading Texas Sized Disney Magic On Galveston Island
Back in March, while waiting in line for an attraction at the Magic Kingdom, I overheard some young men excitedly discussing a new Disney adventure game that they were involved in. Given the length of our wait, and their excitement, I simply had to
be nosy inquire as to what they were talking about. It was the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game. Apparently, the social media networks were all a twitter about this interactive adventure card game. In February 2012, it was released in the beta testing stages. The fellow I talked to said he never expected to be sucked in by a Disney game when he began, but, by the time I talked to him, he was totally sucked in and having a blast. (Those may not have been his exact words, I am somewhat older than him and my memory is waning.)
So, just what is this game all about? I am intrigued! Continue reading Walt Disney World Resort ~ Sorcerers Of The Magic Kingdom
Having spent this past weekend celebrating my youngest daughter’s 19th birthday, (I know right? I don’t look THAT old! Ha!) I was feeling nostalgic and began thinking of birthday’s past for all my daughters. Most of them had a Disney theme…and MANY of them were actually celebrated at Walt Disney World. The only thing better than celebrating a birthday is celebrating a birthday at Walt Disney World! You can count on having a day full of surprises, fun and that Disney magic that we have all come to know and love. Continue reading Adding Disney Magic To Birthday Celebrations!
