My Disneyland Birthday Extravaganza: The Party Continues

Posted on
All alone in my one bedroom suite at Paradise Pier Hotel, I contemplated having breakfast delivered by room service. Then I looked at the prices and that was the end of that thought. Once I had everything packed up, I got ready for the day and exchanged phone calls and text messages with Yoli, Jen, … Continue reading "My Disneyland Birthday Extravaganza: The Party Continues"

In this blog, I’ll be discussing the overall resort and describe this new experience in Disney accommodations. When Michael Eisner was hired by shareholders Sid Bass and Roy E.

Disney Cruisin’ – Conclusions

Posted on
In no particular order, some of my thoughts and impressions about things we experienced on our Disney cruise. The Ship The Disney Magic is gorgeous. Just what you’d expect a classic ocean liner to be. Beautifully decorated and themed and appointed. And a lot of the Disney theming isn’t “in-your-face” theming – it’s more subtle … Continue reading "Disney Cruisin’ – Conclusions"

Beauty and the Beast

They loved the dancing, the singing, and of course the music. We sat in the very back of the theater … Continue reading "Beauty and the Beast"

Left the room about 9:30 and waited less than 5 minutes for the bus to the Magic Kingdom. It went straight to the MK without stopping at the Swan and Dolphin, which … Continue reading "Holidaze at WDW – Day 4"
