Over the course of our trips, I manage to see a lot of the shops, even if I don't get the … [Read more...]

Disney Quick Tips – Arrive for Rope Drop

The first tip I give anyone looking for advice on their Disney vacation is to arrive at the parks before rope drop.

Cast members and characters arrive by train to sing and dance and get everyone excited for their day. (Not the everyone wasn't already excited!) It's a great show! Other parks have more of a soft opening and … [Read more...]
