On my family’s most recent trip to Walt Disney World, my wife, her sister and niece dined at The Bon Voyage Breakfast hosted by Trattoria al Forno on Disney’s Boardwalk. I was off with my daughter climbing the four mountains of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (that’s another blog post for another day). My wife knew this was a new and unique experience for our family and took great pictures of her experience for use on the blog.
During my family’s trip to Disney last December, we headed over to Hollywood and Vine for Minnie’s Holiday Dine. This event was added in 2015 for what was just the holiday season but rapidly expanded to a year-round event and made a return for the 2016 holiday season. This made it an easy addition to our dining lineup for this trip.
This is my first attempt at a video post. I tried to keep it simple and went with a top five list of Boat Ride Attractions at Walt Disney World. I hope to release more of these videos going forward enhancing the content on the blog.
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.
Walt Disney World is open every day of the year (barring weather emergencies). School is open, in the US, for most of the year. Odds are, if you plan a Walt Disney World vacation, there is a good chance that you need to pull your children out of school to attend. Disney kind of ensures this by making major vacation times (summer, Christmas, Spring Break, President’s Day Weekend) more expensive than other times of the year. Airlines are to blame as well by charging higher fares around these breaks. Just from an affordability standpoint, it is easier to pull your children out of school and take them to Disney while school is in session. Some schools and administrations take a dim view to this. So here are some strategies to “help your case” if confronted.
