August 27, 2012

fun place to stay at DisneyDisney toysLooking for somewhere fun to stay? How about Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World. The resort is unlike any other hotel you have ever stayed, it’s more like a celebration of 20th century pop culture! Disney’s Pop Century Resort opened December 13th 2013 as a Disney Value Resort. Since then families have been in awe of its bright colors and amazing detail to everything you loved as a child and adult from the 1950’s thru the 1990’s.

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Activities

August 7, 2012

Our trip to Disney’s Hilton Head Island in South Carolina was billed as a low key vacation. We thought we’d have lots of time to sit by the pool and walk on the beach. What we didn’t realize is how much the recreation staff at the resort had planned for every day. Just like any other Disney vacation, there was always lots going on and we could pick and choose the things that appealed to us. In the middle of the week, during an incredible pirate pool party, my husband turned to me and said “this place is like summer camp on steroids.” I find that an apt description.

When you first check-in, you will receive an activities calendar for your stay. Each day, there are different activities that appeal to a variety of ages. My mother and mother-in-law spent hours attending events with the resort’s naturalist. They were able to learn about the loggerhead sea turtle, go on a bird watching tour and take a 3-hour hike around a nearby island. As a family, we also took a walking tour of the marsh (a must-do just for the fun boots everyone gets to wear) and made a shark tooth necklace with the naturalist.

There are tons of crafts that happen throughout the week. Both of my boys decided to make a Mickey tie-dye t-shirt and my oldest son made a lanyard and button, but otherwise, they couldn’t be pulled out of the pool for other craft options. I wanted to make a vacation pillow, but ran out of time.

Disney World Character Dining

March 2, 2012

One of the most exciting aspects of a Disney World vacation—especially for little ones — is meeting the Disney characters in person!  There is just something about giving Mickey a high five or getting a hug from Cinderella to make kids of all ages smile from ear to ear!  There’s not much better than Disney World Character Dining!

You can find characters throughout the parks and in the parades, but if you want up close personal time without waiting in the many individual lines, Disney World character dining a great way to meet some of the beloved friends!

Character meals occur at several restaurants in all four theme parks and in some of the hotels.  Generally, you are seated at your table and you eat at your own pace.  During the course of the meal, the characters featured at that particular meal will rotate around the tables, greeting each table and posing for pictures, signing autographs and interacting with guests.  Be sure to bring along a camera and an autograph book.
