Where to Stay Off Property at WDW

We consider ourselves Walt Disney World experts around here - after all, our love affair with the Mouse and his theme parks has been a long-running theme of our lives. One of the questions we get asked most often is where to stay at Disney World, if...

Thanksgiving in Paris

There's nowhere in the world like Paris. The city is beautiful, and in my opinion, the most romantic place on earth. David and I love it more than almost anywhere, and when we had the opportunity to spend a couple of days there over Thanksgiving, we...

Disney’s Riviera Resort

We recently got to tour Disney's newest DVC property, the Riviera Resort, and holy-moly, someone hit this place with the pretty stick. This resort is themed after one of our favorite places in the world, the European Riviera, and while the resort do...

48 Hours in Maine

This past month, we got to spend two perfect days in Maine. To be totally honest, I had no idea what to expect from Maine. It wasn't somewhere that's ever been super high on my travel bucket list, but when we were going to New England, we decided to...

Our Guide to Christmas at Disneyland

Christmas is our favorite time of year. We love it more than any other holiday combined, and start decorating on Halloween (no exaggeration – we’re those crazy people). We used to make yearly trips to Disney World every Christmas, but for the past f...
