The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2016 Book Review

The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2016 Book Review

by Fairy Diva Whether you are a first-time visitor or a seasoned traveler to Walt Disney World, planning is a necessity. Trips can be made or ruined by proper planning, or lack thereof. One of the greatest sources of information to use on your next trip is The Unofficial Guide books. As the owner of several versions of these books from throughout the past few years, I can vouch for their wealth of information. When given the opportunity to review The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2016, I was so excited! I can never get enough information about Walt Disney World and the surrounding areas! And since each edition is updated as the parks and areas change, I knew there would be lots for me to learn and plan around. To begin with, this book is big. Really big. In fact, this very comprehensive version, at nearly 850 pages, is referred to as the “Big Book.” It contains detailed information that will aid in creating a super vacation...

runDisney Kids’ Races Tips and Rundown

runDisney Kids’ Races Tips and Rundown

By Character Diva Like most parents, I love my kids and want them to experience life to the fullest. In fact, I’d much rather my children have experiences instead of presents. So when I began debating whether or not I should participate in the runDisney Disneyland 10K, I knew more than anything that I wanted my children to participate. Disney Diva Tip: runDisney events sell out ridiculously fast. All of the kids’ races (and several of the adult ones) were gone within the first hour. So make sure you sign up for the reminder emails, and then come registration day, make sure you (and possibly even multiple people) are trying to sign up your party as soon as registration opens. And in case you have multiple children and want to know how to prioritize your registration, for the kids’ races, the Diaper Dash sold out first, followed by the 100m (1-3 year olds), then the 200m (4-6 year olds), and lastly the 400m (for the 7-9 year olds). If...

5 Things to Pack When Dining With a Toddler at Disney

5 Things to Pack When Dining With a Toddler at Disney

by Fancy Free Diva When you’re traveling to Walt Disney World or Disneyland with a toddler, especially one who has graduated from pureed baby food to finger foods, but maybe not one who’s ready to order off the full-fledged kids menu at restaurants, there are some things you might not think about packing that will make your trip so much easier! Fancy Free Son will be 14-months-old on our next trip to Walt Disney World, and these are things we’ll definitely be bringing with us. Traveling to WDW with toddlers on our previous trips was a learning experience for me. The first time we went, when Fancy Free Daughter was 15-months-old, I over-packed. On our next two trips, when she was 2 and 3, I had learned what was necessary and what wasn’t. Now that Fancy Free Son has graduated to finger foods (he was exclusively nursing on our last trip), I’m revisiting my list of what worked and what didn’t. Here are 5 things you should make sure...

Budgeting for Meals at Disney World

Budgeting for Meals at Disney World

by Daisy Diva I love the Disney Dining Plan.  I love that all my meals and snacks are already paid for with a quick scan of a Magic Band.  But sometimes the Dining Plan isn’t your best option—and if you are staying off-property, it’s not an option at all.  So how should you plan for your meals? How much money should you bring?  And how can you make sure you don’t spend all your meal money on souvenirs?  Here are some tips that have helped me and my family handle meals when we are not on the Dining Plan. Obviously, the first step in the process is deciding where you will be eating.  This means evaluating your plans for the trip and making choices about table services vs. counter service restaurants.  If you are travelling with a group where getting on as many rides as possible is a priority, then you may be doing most of your meals on the fly at a counter service spot.  Or you may...
