We have visited Disneyworld 3 times, and twice we have taken advantage of the Disney dining plan. Both times we have benefitted from the ‘FREE Disney dining’ that is offered at certain times of the year, and for us the dining plan has always worked out really well.

The key to a successful dining plan is being prepared. If you are staying at a property in Disneyworld, your reservations can be made 180 days before. Start by booking the most popular restaurants first, such as Be Our Guest located at the Magic Kingdom. On our last visit Be Our Guest had just opened, and we were extremely lucky to have got a reservation.… Continue reading

5 years ago on the 1st April 2011, we took our ‘once in a lifetime’ trip to Florida to visit Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. This trip seems to be at the forefront of my mind as I keep thinking ‘this time 5 years ago’ thanks to my timehop app. Plus I know  3 people who are currently in Florida at the moment. I have talked here about our past trips, yes I did say TRIPS. After our ‘once in a lifetime’ holiday we went back the following year, and then again the year after.  Our first trip gave us so many amazing memories, and I wanted to share with you 10 pictures that make me smile.… Continue reading

This photo is from our last trip to Disneyworld back in 2013.

I love it as you get a glimpse of the famous castle in the background.

There is also a lack of people in the picture.

A small tip, if you want to get those elusive pictures infront of the castle, with nobody else in them, book a breakfast reservation at The Magic Kingdom before the park opens to the public.

4 years ago today we went on our ‘once in a lifetime’ trip to Disneyworld in Florida. I still remember the excitement of that day. Our first trip to the magic had been years in the planning. 2011 had been chosen as we had been married for 10 years, and also hubby turned 40. The kids would be 5 and 8 which we thought would be a good age to visit Disney (though I do think ANY age is great to go there). We were going with my mum and step dad, my step sister, her husband and their son.… Continue reading

I LOVE holidays to the point where I think I am bordering on becoming a holiday addict. I suppose there are worse things to be addicted to… though I am sure the credit card would not agree.

Its funny as when I met my husband we only went on 2 holidays before we had the children. One of them was to Benidorm for a week (I dont actually remember much about this holiday… All inclusive… lots of vodka… say no more) and the other was to Mexico for our Honeymoon.

We went on our first holiday when our first born was 9 months old.… Continue reading
