Vegan & Gluten-free at Captain’s Grille – Disney’s Yacht Club

One of the lesser known restaurants in Walt Disney World is Captain’s Grille, located at Disney’s Yacht Club. This is a great restaurant that is often overlooked. It is modeled on an old-fashioned yacht club, featuring breakfast buffet, seafood & steaks. But, it also has great vegan & gluten-free potential! After a day at Epcot, Nathan and I were hungry for a dinner.,but didn’t have a reservation anywhere. And, unfortunately, Tutto Italia (where we originally wanted to eat) didn’t have any availability. We went on the…

Dopey Challenge 2014

Dopey Challenge 2014 Well, Disney World’s Marathon Weekend is coming up this  week, so I thought I would do a look back at my experience from 2014 from running the Dopey Challenge. Four days of running a total of 48.6 miles totally kicked my butt, but I had an awesome experience and am a little sad not to be participating this year. I love seeing everyone’s costume choices and really hope everyone has a great time!! I plan on registering for 2017…need to save my pennies! The Expo…

Bringing the Magic of Disney Christmas to Your Home

I did not have a chance to visit Disney World this holiday season, but that doesn’t mean I can’t decorate Disney-style for the holiday season! I have had a Disney-themed Christmas tree since I was a child, and I still love it! I get a new ornament (or more) each year when I am at the parks and it helps with my Disney withdrawal. I also have some other “extras” to help make my home more magical! Here is how I decorated my home Disney-style…

A Look Back at the Hollywood Studios Animation Station

One of my favorite non-ride attractions at Hollywood Studios was the Magic of Disney Animation. In here, you could  participate in exhibits and experience what it’s like to be a Disney animator. They always had sketches up of all the upcoming animated movies, and it was a great place to wander around and get out of the heat! Animation Station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios There is also an Animation Station, where you had a unique hands-on opportunity to draw your very own Disney character sketch,…

A New Way to Play With Your Favorite Disney Characters is Hatch’n!

It is finally the holiday season! I make myself wait until after Halloween to think about that, and of course, I don’t start putting up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving, but it is NEVER to early to start thinking about gift-giving ideas. I got a lot of cute Disney-themed toy ideas at the New York Toy Fair back in February, and I am lucky to have found some more. I LOVE Disney-themed everything (of course!), so I excited to bring you this surprising, unique way to…

A look back at the 2014 Jingle Jungle 5k / Wine & Dine Half Marathon

This weekend is the next runDisney race weekend, bringing the Jingle Jungle 5k on Saturday morning and the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Saturday evening.

Here are some highlights to get you excited: Jingle Jungle 5k…
