Will we be safe? Everywhere I go people have the same question about travel this spring and summer. So what’s a travel-loving family to do this summer?
Congratulations! You’re taking your first trip to Walt Disney World. Now comes the hard part— the planning! Everyone has advice—different advice, of course. There’s so much research out there you feel overwhelmed and maybe intimidated.
Who knew that Walt Disney World had so many attractions for the littlest park goers not yet in kindergarten — 80, with more coming this summer when the much-anticipated “Frozen Ever After” family adventure opens in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion.
on vacation, free is great — a lot better than paying for meals the kids don’t eat, theme park tickets when they’d rather play in the hotel pool or museum entry fees when they are ready to leave in less than an hour.
What was once called Downtown Disney has just been renamed Disney Springs with new restaurants like the Boathouse, new shopping outlets (ready for some custom painted Tom’s sandals?) and new acts at Cirque du Soleil.
One in five grandparent surveyed by Disney reported they’d taken a Disney vacation with their children and grandchildren and that certainly seemed evident here in Orlando.
I’m speechless. You would be too with a menacing Darth Vader haranguing you behind his black helmet and costume. But then I laugh and we pose for a picture. This is Disneyland, after all, at its immersive best.
What was a room I have only seen on television was a standard NBA Press Conference room. It was open seating, so I sat in a comfortable second row to await for LA Clippers Head Coach Doc Rivers. Journalists were not shy asking about the tough questions.
I walked into the entrance of Star Tours--The Adventures Continue. That was the first ride of the day, yet I wondered, “What galactic troubles can I get into next...?”
At a time when hotels catered to businessmen, not families, Walt Disney thought there should be a place where families could continue the fun they had in Disneyland. On the same day.
