A Teen and His Mom: My Top Four Memories of our Walt Disney World Trip

For those of you who have been following along, you are well aware that my mom and I just took a trip to Walt Disney World this past May and we had the greatest time together.   I know that seems hard to believe considering that came from a teenager and what teenager enjoys spending time alone with his / her parents, right?  Well, I am one of the few that may be willing to admit that I actually enjoy the time I get to spend with my mom (and dad, but he didn’t come this trip).     Continue reading A Teen and His Mom: My Top Four Memories of our Walt Disney World Trip

Let’s Dine Back in Time: A Review of Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ 50’s Prime Time Café

For dinner tonight, let’s time warp back to the 1950’s, where black & white televisions were one of the hottest commodities, milkshakes were the best drink every made and mom’s home cooking was what every diner in town was trying to replicate.  If the idea of talking sock hops, watching I Love Lucy re-runs, and hearing Mom telling you to keep your elbows off the table peaks your interest, then 50’s Prime Time Café is one restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios you do NOT want to miss experiencing!

An Early Morning Royal Feast: Breakfast in Cinderella Castle

During a recent mother / middle son trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, my son wanted to make one of my Disney wishes comes true.   He wanted to help me cross something off my bucket list that has just never been an acceptable option when we go as a family (four guys and little ol’ me~ that’s a little too much testosterone for this meal!).   Since it was just the two of us this time around, my son wanted to give me my royal breakfast, an opportunity to eat in Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom.   This trip was our birthday trip and he was going to be eating at his favorite restaurant one day during our adventure, so he wanted to make sure that I had something that was my own, as well, so I was granted the wish of making reservations for the Fairytale breakfast at  Cinderella’s Royal Table!

Date with Broadway: A Review of Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical

Fasten your seat-belts!  We are about to take a Magic Carpet ride to Agrabah – I mean, Broadway!  

One of my favorite types of dates with my husband is one that involves a trip into New York City to see a spectacular show.   There are so many on my proverbial bucket list to see, but Disney’s Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical has been at the top of the list for what seems like forever.  So, imagine the surprise when I opened my last gift at Christmas to find an ornament of the world-renowned Genie.  This was my husband’s creative way of saying, “You’re going to see Aladdin!!” Continue reading Date with Broadway: A Review of Aladdin: The Hit Broadway Musical

Hoop-Dee-Doo: A Pre-Teen’s Review

Of the many dining experiences available at the Walt Disney World Resort, one of my all-time favorites is the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue , located in the Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.  Combining hilarious jokes with singing and “a finger-lickin’ countrified feast,” the Revue is an amazing experience that anyone who calls him or herself a Disney fanatic absolutely must do at least once.
