Disney World Vacation Vlog – Day 6: Part 2 – Rainy day at Epcot – January 2016

Well the sky rained on as we park hopped over to Epcot for the afternoon.  The low crowds were very nice and we were able to catch several attractions we had missed on our earlier day: Journey Into Imagination with Figment, Pixar Short Films Show in 3D, The Seas with Nemo and Friends – and we were able to catch some amazing footage of the fish in the tanks that were very active because there were scuba divers in there…

Growing Up With Disney – Our Family Trip 2015 – Part One

Some things in life are out of your hands… We had thought that after our family trips in 2008 and 2010, that they would become a bi-annual tradition.  Well, then life happens and you have to put off those trips.  So it was five long years before we made it back to our second home at Walt Disney World.  We were so excited to return! We decided to try something new on this trip… flying!  We had always driven the…

Disney World Vacation Vlog Day 6: Part 1 – Rainy Morning at Magic Kingdom & Be Our Guest for lunch

What do you do when it rains while you are at Disney World?  Well, you put on a poncho and keep on going!  We had a nice rainy morning at Magic Kingdom.  The good part of the rain is the really low crowds!  That alone is worth the soggy shoes!  The bad part is, well the soggy shoes, plus not being able to record very much…  We were able to get in three rides on Space Mountain, a ride around…

Disney World Vacation Vlog Day 5: Part 3 – Disney Springs Exploring & Bar Crawl

We end our rainy fifth day in Walt Disney World with a trip over to Disney Springs.  Since it was raining most of the evening, there is not a lot of footage…  We ate a fabulous quick dinner at Wolfgang Puck Express and then started walking and exploring the shops, usually running from one to the other under a poncho.  Once we made it to the far end of Disney Springs, we turned around and began a mini bar crawl….

Growing Up With Disney – Our Family Trip 2010

I have posted on my first trip in 1990 and my kids first trip in 2008…  But we have continued our visits to Walt Disney World as we were able to since.  Our next family adventure was in 2010.  The kids had grown a bit, but were still small…  Ethan was 10 and Cameron & Colby were just weeks away from their 7th birthday.  These were great ages, because they were all big enough to ride the roller coasters!!! YAY for us…
