Adjusting Our Travel Goal

Adjusting Our Travel Goal

Disney
113/365 Over the past two weeks, I've been mulling over the efficacy of our goal of getting Disney Premier Passports starting in September. When Disneyland surreptitiously raised ticket prices overnight almost two weeks ago, I had to take a step back and reevaluate. Here are my top three reasons to adjust my goal, and if you click on the heading,…

Disney Quick Tip: Ask for the Back!

Disney
110/365 I know a lot of people are inclined to want to sit up front on rides if they have a choice, but I'm here to tell you that the back is the best! We first learned this little secret from a Cast Member on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train when we visited the Magic Kingdom in 2016. While the front…

2018 Top Nine

Disney, Travel
96/365 Over on Instagram, everyone (and their dog) is posting their Top Nine. I went to the app associated with the concept and generated mine, too. It was very boring, with some of my Swagbucks and deals posts showing up as the most popular in my feed this year. So I decided that I would make my own Top Nine.…

Disney Quick Tip: Sit up Front on the Monorail

Disney
84/365 The Disneyland Monorail takes a quick trip between Tomorrowland and Downtown Disney and back. You can get on at either station, and you'll need a park ticket since you're either going into the park or already there. Ride in Style If you want to sit up front with the driver, you need to board at the Tomorrowland Station. Just…
