What’s the Deal with D23?

Have a Very Happy Thursday everyone! Thursdays are always happy around here, because Thursday is Blog Hop day! Welcome to everyone stopping by from the Babes in Disneyland Blog Hop. It’s always great to see old friends, and to meet new ones. Our theme today is the D23 expo, happening this weekend in Anaheim, California. D23 is the official Disney fan club, encompassing everything Disney from TV and movies, theme parks, merchandise and more. [box type=”info”] Ever wonder what “D23” stands for? “D” stands for Disney, of course. 23 is short for 1923, the year Walt Disney arrived in California and founded what would later become the Walt Disney Company. D23 Silver Membership costs $ per year. D23 Gold Membership costs $ per year. The D23 expo is a yearly gathering of Disney fans – both D23 members and non-members – from all over the world.

Beyond the Disney Parks – Adventures by Disney

It’s no secret that Disney does fairy tales. Their parks and resorts offer guests a great vacation option. But what to do when you’ve been to Walt Disney World and Disneyland? You go back of course! But eventually even the most die-hard Disney travel fan is going to want to do something new, something different. That’s a problem. Disney has a habit of spoiling its guests. Having experienced how magical a Disney parks vacation can be, I’m not rushing out to book a random flight to Europe. I imagine arriving in a crowded airport with no clue where to go or what to do….or worse, committing some horrible social faux pas before we even get to the hotel. I would love to take our family to Ireland someday, to explore our history and immerse in the culture that is still a part of who we are all these generations since my...

Special Experiences at Disney – Worth the Cost?

Yesterday, I wrote about the Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour, available both at Disneyland in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida. It sounds like an amazing experience, and one that my family of train buffs would love but there’s a catch: the cost. This tour, like many other Special Experiences at Disney parts, costs $49 per person, above and beyond theme park admission. I understand the additional charge, the tour guides have to be trained, and their time is worth something – and of course for Disney to remain in business and continue to innovate, they have to make a profit! But for a large family like ours, $50 per person adds up fast! What does your family do – take full advantage of tours and special experiences, or skip them in favor of the many magical experiences included in your park admission? Pin It

Disney and Autism – Guest Appearance on The Best Magic

I recently spoke with Sal Tracanna from The Best Magic as part of his Disney and Autism – A Match Made in Heaven series. Come join us as we discuss the challenges and the magic of bringing kids with autism to Disney World. We talked about everything from the rides to the food and how your resort choice can make a huge difference in the success of your vacation. This interview is part 2 in the series. In Part 1, Sal sat down with one of my favorite Disney bloggers, Kathy Kelly from The Many Adventures of a Disney Lovin’ Spectrum Mom. In Part 3, Kathy and I will both participate in a round table discussion. What would you like to know about visiting Disney parks with children affected by autism spectrum disorders?
