This week I want to share some pointers on making the most of your Disney vacation! It is super easy to burn yourself out after a couple of days of running around trying to get every ride in. So here are my quick tips on how to avoid that crazy Disney Park exhaustion!!

1 - Don't Land Hop!!!
The easiest way to get exhausted in Disneyland (or Disney World) is to run back and forth across the park from ride to ride. Your prioritized list of things to ride may look something like: "it's a small world", Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Roger Rabbit's Toon Spin. Ho…

Disney on a Rainy Day

Good Evening!


This week in honor of the rain we are getting in Utah - the Pros and Cons of going to Disney on a Rainy Day! (Which, funny enough, is my favorite Disneyland weather!) If you ever find yourself waking up in your hotel room to gloomy rain-clouds, do not despair! While there can be downsides to an outdoor theme park in wet weather, there are definitely ways to make the most of any rainy day.

To ensure that you are properly warned (and in the spirit of ending on a good note) we'll start with this short list of "cons"!
It can get chilly! While California is usually filled with warm coastal air, it doesn't mean it never gets cold! Several rainstorms I've been caught in have been in the summer and stay around 70 degrees, which isn't too bad, but when you are wet it can feel a lot colder - especially in the early morning or later in the evening. When it rains hard enough, you potentially walk around the park wet, which isn't always the most fun feeling…

Happy Monday & Happy Mothers' Day! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend & spending time with your families. This week's post is about something I learned from my mom as she scheduled our Disney Dining growing up!

That's right, it's all about food!


This week I want to share our family's tips and tricks for "beginners" on strategically scheduling our Disney Dining! (And hopefully you "pros" will find something helpful here too!)

First things first: plan your meals around your days, not your days around your meals! If you plan to eat breakfast in California Adventure, a restaurant in Downtown Disney for lunch, and dinner in Disneyland, you are going to be extremely exhausted by the end of the day - and you won't have much time for rides in between! Follow these four simple steps below to get the most out of your Disney Dining.
Write down all of the restaurants you want to eat at, and what meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) you want there. Some…

Traveling with Young Children? No Problem!

Happy Monday Afternoon!

As you may know, my specialty is helping plan family vacations for people of all ages! My brother and I were 2 & 5 on our first trip to Disneyland, and our youngest brother was only 4 months old on his first trip, so we know first hand that traveling with little ones is totally do-able, especially at Disney! So, without further ado, here are some helpful tips for Disney with little kids!

The first thing you will want to pin down if you are traveling with toddlers and babies is the location of the Baby Care Centers! There is one in each park. Disneyland's is at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. on the east side next to the Photo center. California Adventure's is in the Pacific Wharf area next to the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. The Baby Care Center offers a variety of amenities such as feeding rooms, high chairs, a sitting area with a little TV, changing tables, and a little store for needed items such as diapers, wipes, sunscreen, baby f…
