5 Most Over Rated Items at Walt Disney World

These are all my opinion. Just like you I have the things I love and the things that I wish would just go away now. This is my list of things that are tops on some lists but I wish would just silently slink off into the Disney night air. 5.  Star Wars – OM…

We’re Back!

It has been awhile but we are back! After a long break and moving this blog to my newer blog I realized I needed to move it back to write about Disney and Disney World as much as I want to. My love for Disney was getting lost on my What’s for Dinner Moms? blog…

You are Going to Disney World Again? My Response

As I am getting ready to book our next trip to Disney World in February already I can hear in my head all the people who ask where we are going on vacation this year say, “Didn’t you just go there?”  or my favorite, “You know there are other places to visit other than Disney…

Training for Walt Disney World

When my children were younger about 2 months before we would head out on our trip to Walt Disney World we would start a walking routine.  Knowing that we would be walking up to 5 miles a day we wanted them to be prepared for the trip.  This meant no whining about being tired or…

Finally, Returning Home

After what will be almost 2 years we are planning a trip back to Walt Disney World.  For so long, it was our home.  But, as our lives changed and we moved twice over the last two years our trips were put on hold. I cannot even begin to say how excited I am.  My…

Thoughtful Thursday – Independence Day

I thought this was appropriate with Independence Day right around the corner. Will you be hanging your flag out and telling your children about Independence Day? The Declaration of Independence begins:  “When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,…

Mommy-School Begins

On vacations and during summer vacation my children attend Mommy-School.  We have been doing this since they were very little.  Learning does not stop the moment you leave the school room.   We believe that is actually when it truly begins. So, for today they are making their wish list of summer activities.  My son’s…

On the Next to Last Day of School

On our penultimate day of school, as my son would say, I thought this quote that I photographed at the American Adventure was very appropriate. My children are looking forward to Mommy School, what I call my homeschooling during the summer and vacation breaks.  They are planning on attending a Civil War re-enactment, visiting museums…
