A Photo Tour of the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs | #DisneyHolidays #DisneySprings

My family and I recently took a trip to Disney World – and of course no visit to Disney is complete without strolling and shopping down at Disney Springs. I love Christmas – and what I love most about it is the trees. I enjoy decorating my tree every year and so I was really excited to check out the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs! This trail had 15 trees decorated like all my favorite Disney movies (complete with a Villain tree!).

5 Tips for Attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Disney World | #DisneyHolidays #Disney

We are a Disney family. There is no denying that. My husband and I honeymooned at Disney World, and we have been back almost every year since. Our daughters are 3 and 5 and have been to Disney World 3 times (plus on a Disney Cruise). Just this year, we were finally able to experience Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (thanks to a little pixie dust from Disney Parks!) and WOW! It was a blast! We cannot wait to do it again some time. Here are 5 tips that will help you plan your MVMCP experience to the fullest!

Tips for Planning Your Walt Disney World Vacation | #DisneyPlanning #DisneyTips

As most of you know, I am somewhat of a Disney Fanatic. I love Disney World! I have personally been there over 20 times since I was a little girl. My husband and I honeymooned there (and may or may not have planned our wedding around Star Wars Weekend). Our daughters, who and 3 and 5 years old, are coming up on their third trip. We are a Disney family through and through. We bleed Disney. My husband and I both agree that if we are going to pay and plan for a vacation that is longer than a weekend, we are going to Disney. We used to live in Florida, about 2 hours from Walt Disney World, and if we still were there, we would be going every single weekend. In the past couple of months, I have had at least 10 friends contact me to help them plan their Walt Disney World vacation. Since I felt like I ended up writing the same thing over and over again, I figured I would put together this article so that many can benefit from my tips!

All That Castaway Cay (Disney’s Private Island) Has to Offer! | #DisneyCruise Series Part 6 | #CastawayCay

One of my most favorite parts about our Disney Cruise was our day at Castaway Cay. Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island – and it is beautiful! I have been to islands in the Caribbean before, but nothing like this. Not only is it gorgeous and relaxing – it is decked out Disney! If you are a Disney fanatic like me, Castaway Cay should be one of the top reasons you need to book your Disney Cruise now. And there are so many reasons to get off the boat when you pull into Castaway Cay.

3 Don’t Miss Activities for Adults Aboard the #DisneyDream | #DisneyCruise Series Part 5

I recently went on a Disney Cruise and had the time of my life! It was just a three day cruise but it was a blast. My family and I have since planned a second one for this coming February and I cannot wait to experience it with my husband. He has been in class for work and was unable to attend the last one, so I took my mom. I was sure to take lots of mental notes on what adult activities there were that my husband and I could enjoy while our daughters are at the Oceaneers Club and Lab. There were actually lots of things – but my top three MUST DO activities that I recommend for adults on a Disney cruise are hitting the spa, eating at Palo (or Remy), and lounging in the 18+ deck area.

We are a Disney family. There is no denying that. My husband and I honeymooned at Disney World, and we have been back almost every year since.

Choosing Your Stateroom + Your Disney Cruise Packing List | #DisneyCruise Series Part 3

Planning a Disney Cruise can feel overwhelming at first – I get that. My husband and I had been researching for a few months when I was given the opportunity to take my daughters on a 3 day cruise thanks to Disney Cruise Lines. This was a total blessing – and I used it to help decide what exactly we wanted out of our 7 day cruise (we ended up booking a trip on the Disney Fantasy which includes the Star Wars Day at Sea – score!). I have put together some tips that will hopefully help make your Disney Cruise planning go quickly- and even included a packing list.

Why Your Kids (and You!) Will Love the Oceaneer Club & Lab | #DisneyCruise Series Part 2 | #DisneyDream

The Oceaneer Club and Lab are the “kids only” parts of the boat on the Disney Cruise Line ships. They are for ages 3 to 12 (must be fully toilet trained) and are full of excitement! Parents can sign their kids in and out as they please so that they can enjoy some adult time on the cruise. My girls loved these areas and were quite upset when I would go and pick them up. I had to practically beg them to come to dinner with me the first night. Our next cruise will be a 7 day, and I wouldn’t be surprised if my husband and I end up going to dinner once or twice without them.
