Disneyland vs. Disney World: an Overview

Disney World for Adults

I remember the first time Hubby and I were considering going to Disney World we had one major concern – is it weird to go without kids? For all intents and purposes we have the maturity level of a 7 year old, but would we have fun?  Are there things to do there for just…

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Must Do List

  So I was logging onto youtube the other day to bring up a video for a friend, when it was lovingly pointed out to me that my most recently (and frequently) viewed video was 10 hours worth of Hedwig’s Theme on repeat. My not-so-secret secret is that I am obsessed with Harry Potter.  Seriously,…

Disney Packing Tips

We recently went to Disney and kept having moments of regret when we realized we totally undervalued the importance of smart packing. Behold, the face of bad packers!   So don’t be like us.  Be better.  Much better.  Consider these tips: Leave Space In Your Luggage: Whether it’s a pair of sequined mouse ears or…

Best Ways to Save Money at Disney

  Guys.  We just got back from Disney and I legit think I am going through some Disney withdrawal.  There is something so enchanting about walking into the parks and hearing the music and laughter everywhere.  And witnessing the tantrums.   Lots of tantrums.   Which led us to ask the question, after seeing a little girl…
