Packing Light and Efficient for Your Disney Day

One thing that many park goers (especially rookie park goers) overlook is how to park light and efficient for their time in the parks.  This topic is mainly going to focus on how to pack if you do not have infants or toddlers in your groups.  I started to go to Disney once my daughter started school so that area is not my area expertise other than to say that packing with an infant or toddler requires a lot more stuff.

A May of Firsts

My next Disney trip is coming up in a few weeks (mid-May) thanks to a random day off in my child’s school calendar.  It’s going to be a trip of many firsts for our family.  A lot of the firsts are because we, typically, travel in the fall and not the spring.  It will give me a chance to experience some new things and give me a chance to blog about some new things at Disney as well.

MSHPP #8

I am someone who does not like Halloween.  I don’t like dressing up.  I don’t like buying candy and giving it out to the neighborhood kids.  I use just put it in a bowl and leave it on my front step.  However, at Disney, that all changes.  I’ve been to two Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties.  I dressed up for one.  I didn’t for other because it was too hot to be in costume.  Disney, in my opinion, does a great job with the Halloween party.  They turn Halloween into a fun event compared to all the work I have to put in at home to make Halloween enjoyable.
