It’s been a long time since I’ve written on the blog. But I hope to change that starting today. Last night, some big news was announced. Illuminations will be ending its run as EPCOT’s night-time fireworks show on September 30, 2019. EPCOT Forever will debut the very next night on October 1, 2019. Illuminations had a long 20-year run as the night-time show in EPCOT. Illuminations made it’s debut on October 1, 1999 as part of EPCOT’s Millennium Celebration.
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.
I’m about to go on my first Disney Cruise EVER. I’m going on the Disney Dream Cruise Ship. We are headed to the airport to fly all the way to Florida. The ship docks at Port Canaveral in Florida. I’m super excited to go on the Cruise. My family and I just made it to the airport to fly to Florida. My family and I are flying through JetBlue Airlines.
