Essential Disney Gear: The Yeti Rambler
I love talking about Gadgets, gear, and items that make Disney more enjoyable. I honestly didn’t believe I could find anything new that I hadn’t already loved. Well, I did. I was introduced to the Yeti tumblers/ramblers by a few people I know and the salesperson at the Academy Sports Store.
Since the moment I bought these beauties, I have been IN LOVE. Seriously. I haven’t loved a drink apparatus this much, ever. Let me tell you why they are perfect for Disney…..Read on.
I’m starting another series for you guys. This one is about attractions that you MUST visit while at Disney World. This series will only include attractions which can be booked in advance, or ‘Fastpassed.’ Why is this important? It gives you an advantage in planning your vacation to include the best attractions possible. It also makes great use of your precious vacation time. Let me whet your tastebuds with a little FIRE! Now, read on for more!

Disney special events………oh how many there are! Many of these revolve around food and a special experience for just a few people. They cost money……extra money. Are they worth it? I hope to answer that question for you here regarding this particular experience. Read on!
There are several attractions at Disney World which garner little attention but are pure gold. The Pangani forest trail is one of those attractions. You won’t find any fastpass lines here, nobody breaking in line for the attraction, and you may not even hear much about it. I will tell you that this type of attraction is the heart of what Animal Kingdom is – Animals. The walking trails are a wonderful way to see animals you would most likely never see otherwise. So, let’s dive into what you’ll find on the trail!
Disney Vacation Club – Is it Worth It?
Should I Join Disney Vacation Club? Is It Worth It?Your Guide to Making the Decision to Join DVC
If you’ve spent any time around they Disney resorts, you’ve probably heard of Disney Vacation Club – also known as DVC. You may have seen the booths around the parks, the advertisements on the resort television, the plug on Disney’s magical express, or the resorts themselves popping up around the property. Let’s face it, DVC is growing and it’s getting bigger every day. The question I’m asking is – Do you really know DVC? Even if you’ve considered joining, do you really understand the benefits and just how much it could benefit you to join? It is a big decision to make, but it could be one that you never regret. The intention of this post is to un-cloud some of the mystery around DVC, help you understand what it is, tell you some of the facts, and help you decide if it’s right for you! I will say I’m a bit biased because I am a member and I think it’s one of the best decisions we ever made; however, I didn’t buy in immediately. We waited until the right time and now we are so happy we did. Read on for more if you’re curious or curiouser…….

If you’re like me, you have two modes:
- On a Disney Trip

Therefore, planning is part of the fun!

Of course, I also love planning our days. I love all this so much, I formed my own Etsy site around all this! Today I want to focus on one particular piece of this – the playlist. I love my Disney playlist and listen to it when I’m planning away for inspiration. Keep reading for the Playlist!
Price comparison for Universal Dining Plan
Universal Dining Plan: A Review
I recently went to Universal Studios using my annual pass and decided to try out their dining plan. This is relatively new and new to me. I had a very positive experience with it and wanted to talk a little about it and compare/contrast it to Disney’s dining plan. Being a Disney veteran, it’s the dining plan I’m much more familiar with, so I didn’t have high expectations for universal but I must say it highly exceeded those! Read on for more!
