The Mexico Pavilion in World Showcase welcomes you in from the hot Florida sun. This pavilion provides a cool place to relax and a constant twilight sky to shop or dine under. The Mexican marketplace offers many souvenirs to choose from. If you love Mexican food, you will enjoy the chips and salsa, tacos, nachos, and carnitas. (more…)
You can spend all day looking through Disney souvenir shops. With just about every ride exiting into a gift shop, Disney has provided more than enough merchandise for it’s guests to choose from. From t-shirts, to glow sticks, to purses and puzzles, Disney has thought of it all! In this post, I would like to let you know about some of the best personalized souvenirs at Walt Disney World. Many of these are not your usual walk up to the counter, hand over your money, and walk away with your treasure type of souvenirs. Some require a little work on your part and others are just plain fun! (more…)
Traditions….it’s amazing how many things at Walt Disney World can become a tradition. Dining at the same ‘first’ restaurant on your first day in the parks might be one tradition. Taking a family picture in the same location every trip might be another. Our family considers both of these to be a tradition, and we have started many more through the years. There are even desserts we have to eat while in the parks. There are so many delicious desserts at Walt Disney World that it is hard to choose sometimes. Since we visit Disney World every few years, we are for sure not going to let the trip pass without partaking in our favorite treats!

Your family will participate in Walt Disney World experiences that will stick and, sometimes, for no reason at all. It’s funny how that happens. Don’t be surprised if the first restaurant you eat at while on your first day in the parks ends up becoming the place your family HAS to go to for your first meal on every subsequent trip.
For us, that place is Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom because we ate there on our first trip to Disney World as a family. Then there may be a Walt Disney World experience that you do one time and you may never do it again, but you will be glad you at least tried it once.

Have you ever wanted to take a family picture in an empty park at Walt Disney World? I will tell you my tips for accomplishing this very thing!
Imagine walking down Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World and being the only person or family there. The turn of the century buildings are all lit up with white lights, Cinderella Castle is lit up and maybe even changing colors just for you! You are standing in the middle of one of the most popular vacation destinations and in front of one of the most photographed locations in the world, the castle. Tens of millions of people flow in and out of Magic Kingdom every year, and here you are, by yourselves in the middle of it all! (more…)
For our family, one of the most enjoyable things about Walt Disney World is sitting down for a meal at one of the table service
restaurants. There are plenty of Walt Disney World restaurants to choose from, but only a few will actually transport you to a different place and, sometimes, even a different time. The amount of detail in these restaurants is mind boggling! It really doesn’t matter if the food is delicious, the ambiance of the restaurant is enough to make it worth your while. Speaking of a different time…. (more…)
