"Wherever you go, go with all your heart." - Confucious
Hello, my name is Tyler. I travel, write, eat, cook, take photos and drink! (Not necessarily in that order). Join me as I make my way around the world!
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.
If anyone ever tells you that Walt Disney World is just for kids, first try and hide your shock and disbelief. (I know, I can’t believe those people exist either). Then please direct them to The World Showcase in Epcot.
My husband and I recently returned from a week of amazing Disney World magic. For our fourth Disney trip as a couple, we decided to try new things outside the normal realm of a typical visit to “The Mouse”.
If you are a parent, you know that traveling anywhere with a child is a process. Babies, in particular, seem to require a disproportionately large amount of stuff to go anywhere.
As the confetti settles from one of the biggest birthday celebrations to ever rock the Disney Parks, many fans are left wondering what the future holds for Walt Disney World. At a recent press event following Mickey Mouse’s birthday, tons of news was announced concerning everything from new shows, resorts and attractions, to expansions of entire lands in the parks, and even new transportation options between the parks and resorts.
If pre-planning where you are going to eat is not a priority when it comes to mapping out your Disney vacation, you are missing out on a huge, and delicious, side of Disney! You will never be hungry or in search of food when at Disney, that’s for sure. Just follow the smells!
If you’re a Disney lover without little ones, you’ve probably had someone ask you why you choose to go to Walt Disney World as an adult, and why you don’t go elsewhere.
Have you ever pondered the best way to commemorate a trip? I’ve often wondered if that [key chain/shot glass/pack of cards, insert random impractical item here] is really the best souvenir for my life.

I keep a list of all the things I can’t do. For instance, I can’t win at video games. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to master the art pressing of the all minuscule buttons in a specific order with split second accuracy while simultaneously telling my opponent that he plays like a little girl. I’ve tried, I’ve failed, I’ve accepted it...
While we’re far from packing our suitcases and begging someone to give us a ride to the airport, Jessica and I have made a few preliminary decisions regarding our travel plans for this year. 2015 going to be a fantastic year for the two of us, both in terms of travel and our day-to-day lives. For those who don’t yet know...
