    Disney’s Blizzard Beach: Melt-Away Bay

    I don’t know about you, but the first thing that springs to mind when I think of snowy, icy mountaintops is not a day at the beach! But if that wintry paradise is located in warm, sunny Florida, Blizzard Beach’s Melt-Away Bay is where I’m headed. Melt-Away Bay is the result of a frosty freeze […]

    Disneyland Resort Paris: Peter Pan’s Flight

    Another timeless, classic attraction at Disneyland Resort Paris, is Peter Pan’s Flight. As with its American counterparts, there are often long lines and lengthy FastPass waits for this Fantasyland ride, because it appeals to absolutely everyone.

    Disneyland Resort Paris: Toy Story Playland

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Toy Story movies are some of my favorite Disney productions of all time! The first one released when my oldest child was an infant. He later wore out the VHS version, watching it over and over and over without tiring of its storyline. I never […]

    Tokyo Disneyland Park: Toontown

    Tokyo Disneyland Park contains seven main “lands,” or separate themed areas. One of them is Toontown. It saddens me a little that Walt Disney World’s Toontown is closed for good, because as you can see with Tokyo’s version, it’s a great place for younger Guests to get a first experience with roller coasters. Lots of […]

    Studio Backlot Tour at DisneyÕs Hollywood Studios

    Studio Backlot Tour

    One of my favorite places to take a break at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is on the Studio Backlot Tour. While the show is far from calm, it progresses at a leisurely pace and is a sit-down attraction—something my feet really appreciate during those long Disney days! The Tour begins at a special effects water tank […]

    Space Mountain

    “Oh we went to the moon in 1969; not 1970 but a year before, uh-huh!” I still get stuck on the song from an old Disney Channel episode of “Even Stevens.” You may remember the episode. It featured book-smart Ren (Christy Carlson Romano of “Kim Possible”) in a musical dream sequence about her space travel […]

    Space Mountain

    Space Mountain photos via Disney’s PhotoPass Space Mountain was one of the first major attractions to debut at Walt Disney World Resort rather than at Disneyland. When it opened in December of 1974, it captured the spirit of the international space race that was occurring at the time, and it was a perfect fit for […]
