New: Highway in the Sky Dine Around Begins Dec. 2. Here’s Why I Think It’s Worth It!

Have you ever resort hopped around the Seven Seas Lagoon using the WDW monorail as your transportation?  Perhaps to enjoy some bar hopping and maybe sample a few bites to eat at different locations?   Did you ever want to have someone take care of all of the details for you?  Well, now you can with the Highway in the Sky Dine Around!

Just in case you thought Disney wasn’t offering enough up-charge  or gimmicky food offerings, or doing everything they can to squeeze every penny from its Guests, now you can pay $150 for a five course meal (including alcohol) around all three Seven Seas Lagoon resorts and then finish the night off with Wishes fireworks.  Check out the official description below!

Starbright Holidays – Full Show, Photos, and Review!

img_6874Disney is trying really hard to turn Disney Springs into a full out destination for Guests and I have to admit, they’re doing a pretty good job. Filled with shops and restaurants of all kinds, live entertainment, and two brand new addition for this Christmas season – The Christmas Tree Trail and now this amazing drone show called Starbright Holidays.

The show features 300 flying drones displaying LED lights as they soar over the lake next to Disney Springs.  Throughout the show, the drones form different shapes in the sky, such as a Christmas tree and an angel, all while flying to an original Disney arrangement of classic holiday songs, which were recorded by a full orchestra.  It should be noted this is the first time a drone show of this caliber has ever been performed in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry

The Christmas Tree Trail is a Perfect Christmas Addition to Disney Springs

This year, Disney Springs added a brand new attraction to its area for this holiday season.  Located at the very east end of the Marketplace where the bus stops used to be is the Christmas Tree Trail.  This is a simple walk through attraction featuring multiple Christmas trees each decorated to represent a specific Disney character or film.  It is completely free and a perfect attraction for the entire family.  When you walk through, they play a wide variety of Christmas songs and even make it snow from above!

Last night, we got to experience this great Christmas attraction and take photos of everything. While I’m not sure how popular this will prove to be as I haven’t seen it heavily advertised and it wasn’t very crowded when we walked through, I’m hoping all of that changes and this attraction returns for next year!

Photo Report: Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2016

I love the end of the year because it holds my three favorite holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (in no particular order).  We already celebrated Halloween and even had the chance to go to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last month.  Now normally, people celebrate harvest, keep those brown/yellow/orange colors around a bit longer, and celebrate Thanksgiving, but here in Orlando, Christmas starts November 1 when the Magic Kingdom is flipped overnight from Halloween to Christmas!  And Mickey’s Very Christmas Party started on November 7th.

Normally, I prefer the Halloween party over the Christmas party for a number of reason, mostly being I’ve never really had an overly memorable experience at the Christmas party. It just never seemed to wow me like Halloween’s did.  But this year, all of that changed. Read the rest of this entry
