It’s not too late! There are still rooms available during the Christmas Holiday Season (early November – first week of January) at Walt Disney World. Should you go? Yes! Abso-Mickey-lutely! Without a doubt, the holiday season is my favorite time at the World. The Christmas decorations are up. The weather is dryer. And the crowds can be at a minimum.

Staying Healthy During Your Walt Disney World Vacation

Tips for Staying Healthy on your Disney Vacation

First, I am not a doctor. I just play one when my kids are sick. (And not very well, according to them – but that’s for another post.) So, take any of this advice with a grain of salt. Okay. With a few grains of salt, because my husband and close family members are in the health care industry and I’ve been to Disney World in and under all kinds of weather.

Best Tips For The Best Character Interactions At Walt Disney World

Okay. Funny story. My kids and I were recently enjoying an evening at Walt Disney World. One of our favorite tricks is to enjoy the rides while everyone else is enjoying the evening parade or fireworks display. Racing from ride to ride in Fantasyland we see “Ariel’s Grotto.” “Ooooo!” my 21-year old daughter squealed, “Let’s ride! There’s no line.” Her 10 and 11-year-old brothers groaned. Me?
