A Mom’s Virtual Vacation at Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re celebrating Mother’s Day with our favorite Mom-approved Disney experiences.  When I think of celebrating Mother’s Day, what really comes to mind is a day where somebody else takes over all the responsibilities of being Mom while I get to sit back and just play and enjoy my family. And who is better at that than Disney? For my Mother’s Day virtual vacation at Walt Disney World, I have two requirements: I get to choose the restaurants, and nobody is allowed to complain – about anything!   This virtual vacation is all about taking it easy – not something I get to do very often! To make that happen, we’ll stay at Disney’s Polynesian resort. Every time I walk into the lobby...

Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann: the Perfect Disney Couple

    Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re discussing the ideal Disney couples. To me, that means a couple that can go beyond the first blush, and can keep sweeping each other off their feet for years to come. I’ve gone to Port Royal to bring you Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann: the perfect Disney couple. Captain Jack Sparrow is the over the top star of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll see that the story is really all about Elizabeth Swann and her true love, Will Turner. Elizabeth Swann behaves like a proper English lady, but she’s not afraid to stand up to a crew full of undead pirates and bully her way through just about anyone to rescue...

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,...

Romantic Disney Dining: Be Our Guest

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. To celebrate Valentine’s day, we’re sharing our picks for romantic Disney dining. Disneyland was originally designed with families in mind – to be a place where parents and children could have fun together. When Epcot was added to the Walt Disney World Resort in 1982, it added a new grown-up layer to the family-oriented Disney experience. The  Fantasyland expansion in 2013 carried on this multi-layered approach to guest experiences, and with it came my pick for romantic Disney dining: Be Our Guest. Atmosphere Almost every restaurant at the Walt Disney World resort is designed to immerse you in a specific place, time, and circumstance. Be Our Guest is no exception. The atmosphere makes Be Our Guest ideal for a romantic evening – the main...
