Disney Trip Report: Oct 2013 (Day 2)

Day 2: October 11, 2013 We unloaded the van and headed to our home for the next week. I was fortunate enough to get us a Finding Nemo Family Suite.

Disney Trip Report: Oct 2013 (Day 1)

Day 1: October 10, 2013 We decided to drive down for our visit to see Mickey Mouse.

Why I Chose to Take My Toddler to Disney

In the Fall of 2013, I was planning a big vacation to Walt Disney Resort. This trip was to include my husband, both of our moms and my daughter. She was getting ready to turn two years old a few weeks before we were leaving for our trip. It seemed like everyone I spoke to, about our exciting journey ahead of us, looked at me with a confused looked followed.. Read More
