Disney’s EPCOT January 20, 2018

Our biggest draw at EPCOT is the Norway Pavillion and the Frozen ride. Our five year old daughter is a huge fan of Elsa and Anna, so getting a FastPass to the Frozen ride was a big deal! I wasn’t able to get a FastPass before we left, but I’ve been checking every day since … Continue reading »

Valletta, Malta November 6, 2018

This morning we took a walking tour of Valletta, Malta’s capital. Malta’s architecture spans centuries, influences, and styles. The island nation has been occupied by the Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans, Normans, French, and British. They each brought their own religion, food, language, and government. This rich history was one of the things that attracted me to … Continue reading »

After stopping in Detroit and Paris, we arrived in Malta this afternoon. I chose our hotel Palazzo Consiglia based on their beautiful rooms and great location in the heart of Valletta.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom January 19, 2019

This is the first time I’ve visited Animal Kingdom, and I was really excited to see the new Pandora – The World of Avatar. I was really impressed by the Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey rides. The lines for both rides looked really long, but passed fairly quickly. We saw several animals on … Continue reading »

Disney’s Magic Kingdom January 18, 2018

We were sad to say goodbye to the Disney Cruise this morning, especially since our daughter woke up with a nasty cough and runny nose. We drove from Port Canaveral to our hotel Disney’s All-Star Music Resort. I called the front desk who recommended an Urgent Care clinic that was five minutes away. They even picked … Continue reading »

Disney Dream January 17, 2018

We spent the day on Disney’s private island Castaway Cay. I absolutely love this island! There are planned activities for children, teens, and adults, or you can just lay on the beach in hammocks or loungers. Scuttle’s Cove has supervised children’s programs for kids 3-12, Serenity Bay is a private beach for those 18 and … Continue reading »

Disney Dream January 16, 2018

The ship docked in Nassau today. This is our 13th cruise and we’ve been to Nassau several times, so we spent the day on the ship. It was nice to have the ship to ourselves while most people were on the island. We spent a lot of time around Mickey and Donald’s pools, swimming and … Continue reading »

Disney Dream January 15, 2018

We flew into Orlando last night and stayed at the Days Inn Cocoa Beach near Port Canaveral. I always like to arrive at the pier the day prior to a cruise to make sure we arrive in time to board the ship. We dropped our rental car off at the port and were on board … Continue reading »
