Thinking About Disney Cruise Line for First Time Cruisers

This week is Spring Break – and that’s the view from my back door. Yeah…it snowed again. No, they aren’t going to plow. Maybe it will melt? On this cold Spring morning, Disney Cruise Line released a new video detailing their destinations for Summer 2015. It looks like they’re branching out into Northern Europe – Norway, Finland, Iceland, Russia, and England. They also highlighted their destinations in the Mediterranean, Alaska, and of course, the Bahamas and Caribbean.

Disney-Inspired St. Patrick’s Day Dinner

Welcome to those of you joining me from My Dreams of Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail. And thank you to Magical Blogorail Red for letting me join you this month to celebrate one of my favorite holidays – St. Patrick’s Day! Since everyone is a little bit Irish this time of year, I thought I’d share what I’ll be serving my own family: a Disney-inspired St. Patrick’s day dinner. Corned Beef & Cabbage If you happen to be in Epcot, you can sample this classic Irish dish at the Rose & Crown Pub in the UK Pavilion in Epcot. If you’re at home, it couldn’t be easier to prepare! Go to your local grocery store and buy a corned beef brisket. It will come with a spice packet. (Normally, I’d turn up my nose at such a thing,...
