Disney // Cruising on the Disney Magic

Our first cruise experience was many (many) years ago on Carnival. I really didn't fall in love with the experience and was sort of thinking this cruise might be the same. I was sooooo wrong. As this was our first Disney cruise and we weren't 100% sure where to start with the booking process I decided to use an authorized Disney travel agent. I had already chatted with Haley in the past via IG over our love for Disney so decided to ask for her help for the process. It was a good move. ...

Disney // Favorite Bars & Lounges

The best thing about being a "Disney Lifestyler" (term for someone who is always at Disney) is that you learn about the best unknown spots that most tourists miss out of. One thing that I didn't know before moving here was the amount of lounges that Disney resorts (and parks!) has to offer.

Plus, its a great place to chat with cast members and make ...

Disney // Going to Disneyland (Part 2)

After spending our first day visiting Disneyland and I cried all the tears I could possibly have -- I thought that Disney's California Adventure (DCA) wouldn't be that emotional for me.

The entrance of DCA has this old-timey Hollywood feel. There is a lovely red trolley going down the street (which you can ride!) ...

Disney // Going to Disneyland (Part 1)

After almost 5 years without a real vacation we decided it was time to change that. So for our 6 year wedding anniversary we decided that it was time to visit Disneyland. Nick and I both love Disney and never been out to the parks in Cali so we were psyched that it was going to finally happened. Of course I wasn't thrilled about the 5 hour flying part -- but I am soooo glad that I did it. We decided to stay on property as our main goal was to just spend every second possible in Disneyland. ...

Disney // The Garden View Lounge

As you all know -- I am a huge fan of hanging at Disney resorts (even though I've never stayed at a resort!) and discovering what fun restaurants and entertainment they offer. A while back I discovered The Garden View Lounge while walking around The Grand Floridian. Its a small little room that offers a daily afternoon tea service with a beautiful view of the landscaping that this resort has to offer. So I let the bestie know about this an we immediately made reservations for a fun girly ...
