Special Needs at Disney.

Many guests with a special needs family member often ask us if they can have a “magical” experience at the Disney parks.

Episode 10 – Closed Attractions at Walt Disney World We Miss the Most

Walt Disney once said, “Progress is impossible without change”.

Walt had a gift of vision, and that vision often involved change.  Over the years, we’ve seen many changes at the Walt Disney World® Resort.

In this episode, we talk about many of the attractions that were once beloved by guests that no longer exist.

Some attractions had to make way for new “lands”.  Some just wore out their welcome.  Others…..well…..we just don’t understand why they’re gone.

But one thing is for sure, these retired attractions have left great memories for all of us.

Join us as we share our favorite memories, and be sure to add yours to the comment section below

Episode 4 – Adults Only at Walt Disney World

Adults Only at Walt Disney World.  Is this really a thing?  We say YES !!!

We are often asked the question “Are there things to do at Walt Disney World just for adults?”  The answer is an astounding Yes.  In fact, we visit the parks regularly without our kiddos.  Don’t get me wrong….I love our kiddo adventures.  But sometimes, it’s great to get away with just a spouse, or even with some adult friends.  In this episode, we explore a few fun things to day for the 18+ (and in some cases, 21+)  crowd.

We explore several of our favorite “date night” restaurants and night club destinations.  

Park events such as the Epcot festivals and evening Magic Kingdom events are high on our list for adult-only adventures.

And don’t forget recreation and pampering in the spas or on the golf course.

Danny and Stacey are out of town this week, so Jeff and I explore some options, and share our favorite experiences as a couple at the parks and resorts.
