One of my favorite Walt Disney World memories is when Kristin became a princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  I have been asked about this experience, so I thought I would share this memory with you.  Kristin was four years old at the time, and she was a huge Frozen fan.  I asked her if she would like to look like Elsa at Disney World, and she was so excited.  For us, four years old was the perfect age to try out Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.   We like to plan a trip for every other year, and as she’s gotten older, she has been just a little less into looking like the princesses.  She was at the height of her love of Disney princesses for this trip. Planning Our Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Experience I admit that I am a planner when it comes to trips–especially Disney trips.  I don’t want to miss anything simply…

If you are looking for a great way to meet Disney princesses without waiting in long lines or using your FastPasses, then you should consider booking a character meal like the one at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavillion at Epcot.  This is also a cheaper option if you don’t want to spend the extra money or use two dining credits at Cinderella’s Royal Table in the castle at the Magic Kingdom.  Cinderella’s Royal Table is an amazing experience that I think everyone should try once, though.

Getting to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall We decided to do breakfast for our meal at Akershus, and we opted to go at opening so that the…

Recently, I was talking to a friend about my recent road trip to the East Coast.  As I was telling her some of the details, including the two times we saw a bear in the Smoky Mountains, the conversation turned to her asking about some general recommendations about where to stay and what to do.  She then asked me what I would consider essential for our travels.  I hadn’t really given it much thought before.  Our needs have certainly changed since we began traveling as a family.  We are out of the baby stage since our youngest is now seven.  With my last trip in mind, I decided to select five things that I am always glad I have wherever we go, whether it’s a short day excursion or a multi-week trip.  Here is my list of must-haves!

I originally wrote this trip review on the 1branson.com boards. Day 1 I hope no one minds, but I thought I would do a trip report of our recent vacation. I could do it on a Disney board, but I like to share here. My travel party included my husband, my six-year-old daughter, and me. We have an 18-year-old, but she has been to Disney twice and doesn’t enjoy traveling as much as we do. In fact, she was quite happy to watch our home this time and have the house to herself. She recently graduated from high school, so she was looking for some time to relax on her own before her life changes in many ways this fall. We left Joplin at 4:00 am on Saturday, July 9, and began our drive. We packed sandwiches and snacks, so we only stopped for a short time for breaks and…

Since this year we were at the World for my birthday, there was only one place I wanted to have my birthday dinner–Cinderella’s Royal Table.  I have been dreaming about it for awhile, and when it was time to make my ADRs, I was ready. The only problem was when I logged into my account on my day, there wasn’t any availability.  I knew that in the past this place was hard to get, but in recent years this seemed easier to get.  I was bummed until I read on the DISBoards that they were not opening up reservations yet for some reason.  So when they did open up, I got a reservation at a great time–6:30 p.m. Kristin decided to wear her Elsa dress, so we got her ready in the room and then headed over.  I wanted to leave in plenty of time, and we did.  We…
