Epcot Green
Over my 26 years of loving Disney, I have been exposed to a wide variety of people who think and insist that Disney World is just for kids. Or for families with kids. As someone who was a Disney kid myself and is now a fully grown person who has…
Animal Kingdom Lodge Review
Read on for my Animal Kingdom Lodge Review. “Oh my god,” I said, sliding the glass door open to yell to my husband. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window!” He raced to the balcony and into the winter Florida sun. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window,”…
