Who else can't leave the parks without spending a small fortune on merchandise?!  Guilty as charged right here!!  The Emporium is like Santa's Workshop filled with my favorite things! Self-control isn't my middle name when it comes to Disney merchandise.  The absolute worst is when you find that perfect shirt and they don't have your size. Most would say, it's just not meant to be. But! Disney fixed that problem with the Shop Parks app! Just scan the price tag, enter your desired size and Disney MAPS out where you can find it on Disney property. Yep, I said maps it out, on a map! They make it way too easy!! To add to this magic, did you know you can shop the parks from your own couch with the Shop Parks app? I know, it's not quite the same as strolling through the shops of Main Street USA, but why not bring a little magic to your day sitting on your own sofa!  So before you embark on your adventure to the Happiest Place on Earth download the Shop
Top Insider Tips From Volcano Bay Water Park Ø   Wear water shoes! Despite how inviting the sandy white beaches at Waturi Beach look, the sand is harsh! The sand is more on the gritty side, which was greatly uncomfortable. Ø   If you are looking to stay on the dry side while floating on Kopiko Wai Winding River …   THINK AGAIN! This “lazy river” is anything but! It moves swiftly and has waterfalls that you can NOT dodge. You WILL get soaked! Be prepared!! Ø   If you have our luck, rain/thunder/lighting showers will follow you to the park. Of course it’s a waterpark and a little rain doesn’t hurt, but lighting strikes will shut everything down. They must have a space of thirty minutes without strikes to re-open. If another strike occurs, the thirty minutes will start over. No one is allowed in the water or on any rides during this time. There is plenty of covered seating near the enterace/exit, along with dining! Ø   If you take advantage of early admission to the park (if
There is something about the popcorn at Disney! It is a family favorite for us. Pop Secret is the popcorn brand of Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts. This refillable popcorn bucket is also one of my favorite values at Walt Disney World! $10 for a bucket and then $1.50 refills! Buckets are available at 4 of the major parks! There are also collectable popcorn buckets available. These collectable buckets vary from park to park, but make a great souvenir!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter The Harry Potter books are loved by so many people!  From the first book to the seventh, they take you into a world of witches and wizards, dragons, Butterbeer, spells and adventures.  A visit to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure makes you feel as if you’re literally walking in the books.  When this Memory Maker first stepped into Diagon Alley, I teared up - the world created by JK Rowling had come to life.  And it’s even better than I imagined.  There are so many little touches in Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade that you could spend days there checking it all out.  Be sure not to miss Knockturn Alley and Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes!   Bonus, if you’re visiting at Christmas time, Universal is celebrating as only those is wizard world can with special snacks and decorations fitting of Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley!
2017 Race-cation #2 I had the privilege to run the Smoky Mountain Half Marathon recently. If you enjoy running, I highly recommend that you run this race. The morning of the race the weather was perfect for running. A slight chill was in the air, and the fog was hanging just a bit. As the gun sounded time to run, the views began. Running along the river and through the mountains were more than I could have imagined. It wasn’t an easy course for me, but I did enjoy the challenge. Visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a trip I always look forward to. I enjoyed the opportunity to run there. Here are just a few of the pictures I snapped along the way.
Mobile Ordering at Walt Disney World Mobile Order is a new option to order and pay for meals on-the-go with the My Disney Experience app. Rather than standing in line at a counter service restaurant, you’re able to place your order on the go from your phone, bypassing the ordering line and picking up your food directly at the counter when you arrive at the restaurant! It works similar to how real-world locations like Starbucks and Chick-Fil-A currently utilize the service. Mobile ordering debuted at Satu’li Canteen in Pandora – World of Avatar, and has since been expanded to include other restaurants across the Walt Disney World Property.   It could potentially save you anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, and also eliminate the stress of having to deal with potentially crowded ordering windows! The mobile ordering service is incorporated into the My Disney Experience app on your smart phone. This is the place to go to access all of your reservations ass
