The Disney Dining Plan at the Walt Disney World®Resort

 

I just love character meals with the Disney Dining Plan at The Walt Disney World Resort. These are some of the reasons why I love Walt Disney World® Dining Plan which will help you when you are planning your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation!

  1. I love having my food paid for before I go on vacation! It is great for your budget.
  2. Children under 3 are FREE!
  3. I love having the refillable mug! It is also a great souvenir!
  4. I have to admit I love all of the wonderful deserts included! It is such a treat. If I do not eat them at the meal I take the deserts to the room for a snack later.
  5. I love to eat at the Character Meals, which is a great deal on the Disney Dining Plan. Also, it is so fun and exciting when the Characters come to your table for photos and Autographs! When my son broke his arm the Characters signed his cast!
  6. Food is a very important part of our Walt Disney World® Resort vacation!
  7. You can enjoy the different restaurants and experiences which come with the meals and not have to worry about the bill!
  8. It makes unforgettable memories!

These are just a few of the reasons I love the dining plan. Do not forget there are many different plans and prices to choose from. Buy the plan and pay for it in advance then eat what and where you like! I really enjoy it and you will too! The memories will last forever!

The pictures above are when my son was almost two. He grew up with Character meals and me as a mother have all of the magical memories to share. I wanted you to see the memories as children grow up going to, The Walt Disney World® Resort. It makes me want to cry time goes so fast! Enjoy your special moments.

Disney Parks Moms Panel Exciting Application Time!

It is that time of year again after the warmth of the summer and before the crisp air of the fall to apply for the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What is the Disney Parks Moms Panel? It is a group of passionate Disney lovers who answer questions to help people plan extra magic, fun, and memories into their vacations on the Disney site. There are only a few chosen for the many whom apply. To be on the Disney Parks Moms Panel is very fun for the Disney Lovers who love to plan Disney vacations like me! I will never give up trying.

The adventure begins again this year on September 6th, 2016. I have applied every year since the panel started. I have not made the panel yet but have “won” in so many more ways. I have had fun on every adventurous application and met friends from all over the world.  These particular friends chEAR for each other and cry for disappointments along the way.

 

Of course, the application process is not easy for that “Princess” role on the panel. It is a “tale as old as time” ten yEARs of applications, and a roller coaster ride with ups and downs along the way. I would not have it any other way! Let the Mickey Park games begin~~Pixie Dust and Good Luck to all!

~~~~It all started with a mouse!!

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa

Our family loves to stay at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. I have stayed there several times before, but now being adjacent from the new Disney Springs is awesome! I also loved the bridge and waterways to Disney Springs on Village Lake. There is so much to do at Disney Springs! New shops and new restaurants it is spectacular.

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is themed after a late 1800’s New York Saratoga Springs retreat famous for its spas and horse racing. There are horses on the decor in the villas. It makes me reminisce about the good old days when Grandma took my cousin and me to the horse races in Colorado. Oh, how I loved to watch the horse races and to ride the horses when I was young.

There is so much to do at this resort:

  1. Two fabulous feature pools with water slides, aqua, play areas and much more!
  2. Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course
  3. Senses–the spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa
  4. Playgrounds
  5. Tennis
  6. Fishing
  7. Jogging trails

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is an enormous resort with many bus stops within the resort. So remember to add a little bit of time when traveling by bus. There is also a boat which goes to Disney Springs at the main building of the resort. The main building and large pool are located in the “Springs” area of the resort. The launch from Disney Springs to the main building of the resort is located at the new bridge area. I find it the most convenient to stay in the “Congress Park” area of the resort which is very close to the bridge and a short walk to Disney Springs. When you get off the bridge, you are close to the “Rainforest Cafe” area of Disney Springs. I love to eat at Earl of a Sandwich it is one of my favorites.

For quick service meals and snacks on site visit the Artist’s Palate. There you can find flat bread, tasty sandwiches, and entrees. The Turf Club Bar and Grill is the resort’s sit down meal restaurant that serves American fare and is very delightful.

The next time you cannot decide where to stay Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is a deluxe and beautiful resort to stay in. There are also Tree House Villas within the resort that have 3 Bedrooms! Last, of all give it a try I think you will be impressed!
