Top 3 Tips for Nursing Moms at Disney

Posted by on Feb 13, 2016

by Fancy Free Diva Disney is a place for families, and many families dream of bringing their children to that magical place, watching those little faces light up with joy, reveling in the wonder and magic of it all. A lot of Disney planning sites will tell you, though, that in order to get the best experience, you should wait until your child (or children) are X years old. I am not one of those people. Life is short and unpredictable, and it is my firm belief that people should travel to Disney whenever they can, regardless of how old (or young) they or their children might be. It...

Rules for the Bus at Disney World

Posted by on Feb 12, 2016

By Dopey Diva Disney World is great when it comes to not needing a car on property. They provide different methods of transportation to get you to and from the parks, water parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. You can ride the bus or the monorail or even boats depending on where you  are going. Of course there are rules for all of these means of transportation and I just want to fill you in on a few rules of the bus, since it is the most used transportation and since not everyone may know ahead of time what to expect when riding the buses. First and foremost….ALWAYS allow sufficient...

Disney Cruise Line – Day at Sea

Posted by on Feb 11, 2016

– By Darlin’ Diva Many of Disney Cruise Line’s itineraries include an “at sea day”.  This may seem a bit intimidating for some people contemplating their first cruise experience.  What the heck’s an “at sea day” and what do you do with it?  Sure, it sounds like there are a lot of things to enjoy on a cruise – especially a Disney cruise – but won’t an entire day adrift without a port of call to explore be boring?  What if some people don’t want to spend all day in a pool or basking in the sun on deck?  What if the cruise is in a colder climate and swimming will...

Disney on Ice Frozen presented by Stonyfield YoKids Review

Posted by on Feb 11, 2016

by Wishing on a Star Diva When Tips from the Disney Divas & Devos were first contacted by Feld Entertainment about doing a review on Disney’s on Ice Frozen presented by Stonyfield YoKids, we were all elated. I attended my first Disney on Ice show (Beauty and the Beast) when I was in the third grade and had been smitten ever since! Now that I have young children of my own, I was eager to pass that experience and tradition onto them. From the first time I heard the song, “Let It Go”, I thought, wow, this would be a fun song to do an ice skate routine too....

The Wonderful World of Hidden Mickey’s: Where to Look and How to Find Them!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2016

by Wishes Diva Have you ever heard a fellow Disney fan discussing their recent trip to the parks, and they mention finding a Hidden Mickey? Have you ever wondered what a Hidden Mickey is or where to look for them? Then this article is for you! What is a Hidden Mickey? Hidden Mickeys are a partial or complete image of Mickey Mouse that has been purposefully hidden by Disney’s Imagineers or artists in a Disney attraction, hotel, restaurant or other area. The Mickey images are meant to blend in to their surroundings and be hunted by sharp-eyed visitors. Hidden Mickeys can come in all shapes and sizes. Most often...

Disney Vacation Planning Tips: 25 Years of Disney Vacations

Posted by on Feb 9, 2016

-By Darlin’ Diva I didn’t visit a Disney park for the first time until I was 25.  I was a newlywed, married to a Walt Disney World fan, and I found the experience magical – transformative, if you will.  While I’d been a Disney fan from my earliest memories, this new-to-me vacation destination solidified my love for all things Disney.  I’m now 50.  My husband and I have been to Disney World many times (with our two children and without) and have many more Disney vacations planned in the future.  Mistakes were made along the way and we learned a lot about how our family likes to vacation Disney-style.  I’ve put together a short list of tips...

runDisney Over 50

Posted by on Feb 8, 2016

-By Darlin’ Diva I’m not very sensitive about my age.  I’m 50 and, except for the somewhat unfortunate effects of time and gravity, I’m feeling great and consider myself wise(er) these days.  Being the Disney fan that I am, I can’t really explain why it took me so long to participate in my first runDisney events (2015 Frozen 5k and Princess Half Marathon Weekend’s Glass Slipper Challenge).  Yes…if you put that together, it means I waited until I was 50 to participate in my first Disney races!  If I can do it, you can too!  Here are my best tips for your very first race: runDisney Over 50  Check with...

So You Want To Be a Mermaid? Mermaid Makeovers at Pirate’s League

Posted by on Feb 6, 2016

by Fancy Free Diva I know it’s horrifying for some of you to hear, but it’s true: not every little girl wants to be a Disney princess. Gasp! Fortunately, even Disney acknowledges this not-so-universal truth by offering an alternative to its powder-pink Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: The Pirate’s League. While some of you may be thinking that the Pirate’s League is only for boys who want to play pirate or for those savvy grown-ups who are trying oh-so-desperately to emulate Captain Jack, the Pirate’s League offers more than just the pirate makeover. At the Pirate’s League, located adjacent to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the Plaza del Sol...

Walt Disney World With Teens

Posted by on Feb 5, 2016

-by Darlin’ Diva When our children were little and we vacationed at Walt Disney World, I worried that we wouldn’t have as much fun when they got older.  Would they still like the shows, rides and attrations the same way?  Would they be bored or feel like we were forcing childish things on them?  Would dealing with teens on a Disney vacation be as challenging as dealing with them at home was sure to be?  Let’s face it, teens, in all their eye-rolling glory, can be both the joy and bane of every parent’s existance.  Having survived (and enjoyed) many a Walt Disney World vacation with this ever-so-special type...

Can I Really Do All 4 Parks in One Day? Tips for the Ultimate Park Hopping Day at WDW.

Posted by on Feb 4, 2016

by Wishes Diva All four parks in one day? You must be crazy to tackle that! In actual reality, it is not very hard to do, if you know how to plan it! Below is my fool-proof plan for visiting all four parks in one day, plus highlights for each park! First tip for the day: Be a morning person, even for just this one day. Most vacation goers enjoy the leisure time that vacation brings. However, if you are planning on achieving all four parks in one day, you better be an early riser that day!

Beauty or the Beast? Breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table vs. Breakfast at Be Our Guest

Posted by on Feb 3, 2016

by Fancy Free Diva On our most recent trip to Walt Disney World, we managed to score two of the most coveted advance dining reservations: the 8am slot at Cinderella’s Royal Table, and an 8:05am at Be Our Guest. Diva Tip: The earlier you can make your in-park dining reservations, the better, especially on mornings when the parks open at 9am and do not have Extra Magic Hours. If you have a reservation at 8am, you can get into the park early and take some fantastic photographs with few other people in your shot! Be Our Guest had just recently opened for breakfast, and while we had eaten dinner...

A Perfect Half Day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Posted by on Feb 2, 2016

By Minnie Diva We’ve already talked a ton about the D23 Expo. And if you haven’t heard, Disney is bringing some major changes to Hollywood Studios–including a new Star Wars themed land! Until then, let’s face it: there’s not a ton to do in Hollywood Studios. There’s a lot of construction going on, and a lot of things closing. I dare say it would be a waste of time to spend a full day there. So why bother when you can hit everything and have an awesome half day? (Before we continue, I would personally argue that an action packed half day at Hollywood Studios is probably not for...
