“A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.” - Goethe
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge officially opens at the Walt Disney World Resort inside Disney's Hollywood Studios on August 29th, 2019. We were allowed into "Star Wars Land" for a 4 hour preview this past weekend!
Everyone loves getting pastries at Les Halles Boulangerie et Patisserie in France, margaritas at La Cava del Tequila in Mexico, or enjoying the exhibitions in the American Heritage Gallery. (Okay, maybe it’s just museum geeks like me, but you can at least enjoy the Voices of Liberty!) But as I’m sure many who cherish EPCOT as their favorite park at Walt Disney World have done, I have spent a possibly unreasonable amount of time thinking up new pavilions for the World Showcase.
I’m not sure there could be any argument that there is any prettier time of year at EPCOT than the International Flower and Garden Festival. The park is filled with flowers, topiaries of beloved characters, and kiosks filled with beautiful and delicious snacks from around the world.
Have you ever felt like you’re traveling through time when you’re at Walt Disney World? WDW abounds with representations of both the past and future, from subtle allusions to elaborate depictions.

One of the most exciting moments in life is planning your first trip to Disney World! However, with over 25 on-site resort hotels, 4 parks, a downtown entertainment district and countless restaurants, planning can be stressful and confusing. Here are some of my tips and tricks for your first trip to Disney World!
I’m sure most anyone who has experienced Disney World knows that it’s basically a world in itself. If you’re staying on property, you can have most of your needs taken care of without ever leaving the Disney bubble. On a trip with my mother this spring, I learned how true that really is!
Ever since I started poking around on Wikipedia looking at different pages for the Disney parks when I was 11 (I know, I was a SUPER cool kid), one place within Walt Disney World’s property has always had a certain allure to me: River Country. The idea that Disney built an entire water park only to close it with no real explanation after years of success always stood out to me as fascinating, especially since to this day the joint still stands abandoned.
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains in the tourist town of Branson lies quite possibly the most immersive theme park I’ve been to outside of the Disney Parks: Silver Dollar City.
Doolin Cave is an undiscovered gem of sorts, and truly a sight to behold. While the Cliffs of Moher, just south of Doolin, receive over 11 million visitors per year, only a minuscule fraction of those guests, (around 23,000), make it to Doolin Cave.
