The Holidays Are Here…Don’t You Wish You Were Too?

Can you feel it? There’s a chill in the air. Can you hear it? There’s a sound of carols everywhere. Can you smell it? The smell of cinnamon and sugar flies without a care. Yes, my friends, holiday time has arrived at the Walt Disney World Resort. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be outlining some of our favorite things to do all around the resort during holiday time, from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park to romantic sleigh rides at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, and so much…

January Streaming Schedule

I want to start by thanking everyone for such an amazing and successful December, both for me, and for Streaming Disney!

We were running full speed into the end of the year, then between illness, car trouble, and some personal issues of my own, it was a perfect storm of events that caused a speed bump in the streaming. I am, however, happy to say everything is all worked out, I am still partnered with Streaming Disney and I have January’s schedule together!

With the holidays over, there are less hours at Streaming Disney, but I am still going to be…

PizzeRizzo Now Serving Up Tons Of Charm at Hollywood Studios

This month we saw the much-anticipated debut of PizzeRizzo. I was there on opening day and enjoyed a leisurely lunch with a dear friend.
If you were familiar with the location this restaurant took over, Pizza Planet, the menu remains mostly unchanged, but the interior of the location is entirely different and benefits from being roomier, quieter, and from all those unique details Disney is so wonderful with.

Let’s get the negative out of the way first, the food… it’s forgettable.

The veggie pizza has so few veggies on it and they are diced so small it may as well have been…

Day 38 – Food and Wine!

Day 38 took me to Epcot to enjoy a brief food and wine visit where I tasted three items, all of which I will tell you all about in a minute. First, the day was gorgeous. We are seriously having a streak of good weather and I am incredibly grateful. Florida weather and I have a tenuous relationship, but I’m enjoying this. The parks weren’t overly crowded either. All in all, it was a beautiful day to be in Epcot.

I did record something I’m hoping to turn into Sunday @ Epcot so keep an eye on the site,…

Firework Fest Night One!

Tonight was truly remarkable. People asked me a lot when I was first starting this quest, “Won’t you get bored?” Well. I realize I still have a LONG way to go before I complete this year, and there are days that I’m only out there for the briefest of time and it seems rather rote, but nights like this are so much fun that it reminds me again how fortunate and blessed I feel to be able to do this at all.

One of the wonderful new friends I’ve met through Disney messaged me the day we found out Celebrate…

Character Palooza Hollywood Studios

Of course, I had heard of Character Palooza before yesterday. I even thought it sounded pretty cool… for people who liked that sort of thing, it just wasn’t on ANY of my lists of things to do and see.

What I found out yesterday, however, is that I may be one of those people who likes that sort of thing!

Who Knew!?!?!

Character Palooza, for those of you who don’t know, is a random, and I do mean random,  occurrence at Hollywood Studios. It has a tie-in with Fantasmic, so there have to be performances…

My Disney Today (1 of 365) The Start of a Dream

The most important thing I will ever say in my life, and I say it repeatedly, is FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS.

They lead you to the most magical, amazing places and people. Each day of my life, since I discovered this truth for myself, only gets better. Yes, there are low spots, of course, but the trajectory of my life is on a consistent upswing and I could never have said that before. The whole rest of my life I was sad, even when I was happy. I was worried, lost, frustrated, not able to really build anything. Life was like…

Bullet Journaling The Adventure

I have clearly been living under a rock because I was just introduced to bullet journaling… and I’m beyond obsessed!

And… I haven’t spent my rent money yet on colored pens, stickers, and washi tape, so far so good. 😉

If you don’t know what bullet journaling is, put the term in a youtube search and prepare to be amazed! The summary is that it’s a planner and journal in one that’s entirely customized for each person, and you don’t need anything special to create one… don’t need, doesn’t mean you won’t want! 😉

What I have done is set up my very…

Preparing For Friday

In five days now, I start the adventure of my lifetime, a full year at Disney World!

When I first started considering this idea, it was just one of those crazy things I come up with that would be super cool… IF you could actually do it. I wasn’t convinced I could do three hundred and sixty-five days at Disney. In fact, I was pretty sure I couldn’t.

I mean, that’s really crazy… Even for me!

It’s a HUGE commitment, time and energy wise, but with money as well, and you all know that’s been such a huge issue for me…

The New Adventure – Disney Lovin 365

September has already been a month to remember. Some of you may know that my birthday is coming up in about a week and this is a big one, I turn 50. Wow that’s so crazy. I keep thinking back to being a kid and how old that seemed, and now, here I am and it doesn’t seem old at all. However, that being said, there are definite changes to my body and as I contemplate aging, I realize I’m going to have to make some changes if I want to stay vibrant and healthy well into my… say…
