Seven Things I Have To Do On Every Disney Trip

I've written previously about how I like to try at least 5 new things each time I go to Walt Disney World, but I also do a lot of things that have become so ingrained to my Disney trips that if I don't get to do them, it just doesn't feel like vacation. These personal Disney traditions are just part of what makes it all magic for me. So check out seven things I have to do on every Disney trip.

A Quick Stop At The BoardWalk Bakery

We all know that dining at the Walt Disney World Resorts can be an extraordinary experience. That especially holds true at the variety of venues on Disney's BoardWalk. As much as I love to dine at the wonderful table service venues, sometimes I just want to pick up a quick bite on the go, and that's when I turn to the BoardWalk Bakery.

A Few Drinks At Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar

My 22 year old son and I have a running "argument" over which one of us drank more on our last Disney trip. He's sure it was him, but I think he just didn't want to have to tell his friends that is was totally his Mom. Regardless of who downed more delicious Disney cocktails on the trip - we started it all off with rounds at the fantastically fun Indiana Jones themed location at Disney Springs - Jock Lindey's Hangar Bar.

My Five Favorite Things About The Disney Cruise Line

I've been dreaming of going back to sea, as tends to happen this time of year. If like me you yearn to slow down and relax while soaking up some serious tropical sun, maybe it's time you take a Disney Cruise. Leaving from Port Canaveral (and other Ports around the world) the Disney Cruise Line offers an escape beyond compare, and I thought I would let you in on the five things that I love most.

The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge

If you're looking for a lovely place to lose a couple of hours at Disney's Hollywood Studio, the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge may be just the place for you. Located on a shady patio in front of the signature Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant, this shady nook offers cocktails and tapas with a prime view for people watching.

Florida Sunshine In A Cup At Dockside Margaritas

Welcome back for more Friday cocktails! Man - we sure need it this week don't we? How many of you spent time this week wishing you could just run away to live in Walt Disney World? I know I did, and if I lived in Walt Disney World I know I'd spend a fair amount of time sipping cocktails in the sun. This week we're checking out some liquid Florida sunshine from Dockside Margaritas in the Marketplace at Disney Springs.

Two Snack Credit Breakfast on the Go at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Breakfast options at Disney Hollywood Studios are what I call, limited. While there is a Character Breakfast it's focused on the Disney Junior set which can make it less than desirable for some older Disney travelers. I wasn't sure where I would end up eating the morning we went to that Park, but I ended up with one of the most delicious treats of my day.

Wonderful Watermelon Cocktails on the Nomad Lounge Deck

It's Friday - so say good-bye to the workweek and join me for a look at another fantastic Disney cocktail. 2016 saw increased growth at Disney's Animal Kingdom, including a new lounge where weary travelers can choose to take a rest. The Nomad Lounge is tucked back next to the river on Discovery Island, just behind Tiffins Signature Restaurant.

Guest Review of Epcot's Coral Reef Restaurant

Ambiance is the heart and soul of the experience at Coral Reef Restaurant at the Seas pavilion in Epcot. Picture this. You've just spent some time riding the EAC with Nemo and friends before meeting some real life aquatic creatures in the world's second largest salt water aquarium. You wind your way around the back of the building to find a little restaurant tucked away in the corner. Is it odd to look at fish while you're eating fish? Not really.
