My Five Dream Disney Vacations

Dream vacations, eh?  I could probably come up with quite a list of places that I’d love to visit. Probably. But as you know I’m a bit of a Disney fan, and there are a couple of Disney locations I haven’t visited, so this list is going to be about those. Assume of course we’d […]

First Look: Doctor Strange Meet and Greet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

It was quietly released earlier this week that a Doctor Strange Meet and Greet would happen at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Due to the agreement with Marvel and Universal Studios (or at least that’s the line that’s always given), Marvel characters have not been allowed at Walt Disney World. Until now. The Doctor is IN.   […]

Drinking Around The World At Epcot

Drinking around the world is a time-honored tradition at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park. The idea is simple: stop in each country and drink one beverage at each location. With 11 permanent countries represented, I salute (or salut!) those that can complete this challenge. And it’s not just for the alcoholic drinkers; non-alcoholic options count too! […]

Bursting the runDisney Balloon Lady Bubble

This was first published in August of 2013. As we are circling into another runDisney race season, it’s a good time to share a little light on the mystery of the runDisney Balloon Lady. Bottom line, runners, don’t panic if you see them: they are friends and not to be feared!    Bursting the runDisney […]

How to Christmas at Disney

I’ll be the first to admit it: I’m scared to full on Christmas at Disney. We’ve done a few days around the holiday, but haven’t made the plunge to spend Christmas week at the parks. But I’ll also confess that it’s a dream of mine to pull off and one that someday soon is going […]

Celebrate! It’s Walt Disney World’s Birthday

Today is the 45th anniversary of the Magic Kingdom in Orlando. Celebrate the Magical Kingdom at Walt Disney World birthday! I think Walt would be proud of what his brother created for him. Walt Disney World is tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney … and to the talents, the dedication, and […]

Your Guide to Halloween Time At The Disney Parks

Halloween time at the Disney parks is coming along real soon! BOO to YOU! I’ve been Disney dreaming today as I get ready for the Disneyland Half marathon weekend in a few days. I love this weekend because it’s the last time before the holidays take over. I’m also working on a post about a […]

2016 Star Wars Dark Side 10K Race Recap

Well, my whole premise on this one is going to be different than I thought. That’s a good thing, I think. Let me explain. I was planning on this race and the half to have some, oh, shall we say, suggestions for improvement? But apparently, runDisney has already received that memo and has started tweaking […]

Not to freak you out, but that’s the easy part. Yes, I’m serious! There are a lot of decisions to be made at this point and […]
