Inspiration, or Why Am I Here?

It’s Thursday, and that means of course that it’s Blog Hop Day! Thanks, as always, to Lisa at Babes in Disneyland for hosting our weekly get-together. This week’s theme is Inspiration. What gets me up at 5am five or six days a week to write this blog? I’d love to tell you I do it for some wonderfully altruistic reason – to share my knowledge, perhaps. Ok, there’s some of that.

But really, if we’re going to be totally honest here, I do it because I have to. When I don’t write about Disney, I get Grumpy! Writing is one way I can immerse in Disney magic every day.

Day 1: Their first stop is Kona Cafe at the Polynesian Resort for breakfast, then it’s a short Monorail ride to the  Magic Kingdom. The rides might not be...

Virtual Vacation: Going to Paris!

It’s Virtual Vacation Wednesday! These posts are all fantasy, a little fun and relaxation in the middle of the week. Most of the time, planning is half the fun but this week what I really needed from my virtual vacation was to just go and let somebody else do the thinking. So I showed up on one of my favorite blogger’s virtual doorstep and said “It’s been a long week….we’re going to Disneyland!” Manda lives in Scotland and writes about Disneyland Paris Manda’s Disney Blog. ************* Here’s our girls’ weekend in Disneyland Paris ************* So Tricia turns up on my doorstep with 2 day 2 Park Disneyland Paris tickets! (I would always go for longer, but to keep this virtual vacation from turning into a book … I’m sticking with a 2 day trip! 😛 ) Let the virtual vacation begin! I’ve been instructed that money is no object with my...
