American Tourister Colora Luggage Review

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review the new American Tourister Colora luggage line. I’ll admit – I was skeptical! A suitcase is a suitcase, right? But Disney has just declared American Tourister the Official Luggage of the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. That tells me there’s something special going on here, and I needed to check it out. One of the things Disney does better than anybody is get the tiny details just right. I saw the same qualities in the American Tourister Colora bag – they anticipated my needs as a traveler and met them before I even had a chance to worry about it. Anybody who can do that is welcome to travel with me any time! Convenience Traveling isn’t always easy, so when the tools of travel make it a little easier, that’s a huge win. The Colora line has convenience built into...

Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow. Enjoy the ride as we share how to have a Disney Thanksgiving at home. Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu For some of us, the magic of Disney begins with the food. I love that aspect of the parks, because it’s something I can re-create at home. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It’s an autoimmune disorder that treats gluten – the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley – as dangerous and attacks. Unfortunately, my overactive immune system goes a little overboard and I end up as collateral damage. Even the smallest amount of gluten can make me sick for days. No fun. I’m not worried about traveling to Disney. Actually, it’s one of the few places I don’t worry about whether or not I’ll be able to eat safely. They’ve got this under control, but...

Riding the Rails: Trains at Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Can Do It Mom aka Mouse Fan Diane and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 8th stop on our Magical Blogorail. Riding the Rails: Trains at Walt Disney World For this special edition Magical Blogorail loop, we’re talking about all the ways you can get around the 47 square miles that comprise the Walt Disney World Resort. I jumped at that chance to share my favorite way to get around the Magic Kingdom: The Walt Disney World Railroad! Trains are kind of a big deal in our family. Not that every child on the autism spectrum is a train fanatic, but a lot of them are, including my two boys. If Walt Disney were still alive, he and my kids would get along quite well, I think! I love the Walt Disney World Railroad for two big reasons:...

Gingerbread Houses Around Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail. I am so excited to rejoin the Magical Blogorail this month, after taking several months off. This time our theme is Christmas Must-Dos at Walt Disney World. Sure, it might be October and right now the Disney parks are full of pumpkins and not-so-scary scarecrows, but if you have a holiday trip coming up (or just wish you did!) this is the time to start planning your activities. My Christmas must-do at Walt Disney World are the gingerbread houses. I’ve never actually made a gingerbread house. But I want to! Every year, I see these amazing works of architectural artwork and think, “I could do that…” (Maybe. If I had a lot more time.) And of course Disney goes completely over the top...

Magical Blogorail Coast to Coast Giveaway

I took a break from the Magical Blogorail for several months to focus on writing Daughter of Oreveille, but now that the book is done, I finally have time to come back and blog about Disney! I’m so excited to re-join the Magical Blogorail for this event because it really mirrors my Disney experience. I grew up in California and went to Disneyland as a kid, then moved to Illinois and have taken my own kids to Walt Disney World. Plus, I’ll be rejoining the Magical Blogorail Yellow Line in October, so there’s even more reason to celebrate! I know a lot of Disney fans have a “Home Park” but I’ll claim both as my favorite place on earth! So I was thrilled when my friends in the Blogorail decided to do a Coast to Coast giveaway. There will be two randomly drawn and verified winners of this giveaway....
