The Crystal Palace is one of three Magic Kingdom character dining options and definitely the cutest! This is where you'll find the cuddly and adorable characters from Winnie-the-Pooh. We are big fans of Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Winnie-the-Pooh, especially after seeing the wonderful Christopher Robin movie, and were keen to revisit this fun character meal on our most recent … [Read more...]

We are a little bit addicted to these decadent family-focussed cruises -
Cinderella's Royal Table is a Disney World must do, because it allows you to do the impossible - to go inside Cinderella's Castle. Anyone can walk through the arches at ground level, past some beautiful mosaics and come out on the other side. Other Disney parks have paths to follow deeper into their castles, displaying dioramas telling Sleeping Beauty's story. At Disneyland … [Read more...]
Epcot is a brilliant theme park and unlike any other around the world, with its mixture of epic rides in Future World and culture-packed World Showcase. The best Epcot attractions like Soarin', Test Track and Frozen Ever After meant that we spent a day and half here this trip and left wanting more. Epcot is also huge (more than twice the size of Magic Kingdom!), so you … [Read more...]
The kids adored meeting Chip 'n' Dale at an Epcot meet and greet last time we visited, so a Garden Grill Epcot character meal with these cheerful chipmunks was high on their wish list this time around. This is one of the few places you can meet Chip 'n' Dale in the whole of Disney World and they’re always a lot of fun. Cheeky and full of cuddles. Walt … [Read more...]
With only about 18 attractions versus the 33 at Magic Kingdom and 26 at Epcot, it's not actually super hard to do Animal Kingdom in one day. You may in fact only be able to fit half a day into your Disney World schedule like our last visit. But if you want to see and do everything in one day (and you definitely can!), then you need a plan. 8am Quiet walk through Asia … [Read more...]
The African-themed Tusker House is where you can meet many of the most popular Disney characters while enjoying excellent food in a relaxed setting. This character meal is a Disney World must do for us. We love that the Tusker House characters don't seem rushed. There is a laid back vibe for both the characters and the diners. The characters will stay at your table for … [Read more...]
When it is a 16 hour flight from Sydney to Dallas, plus another couple of hours from Dallas to Orlando, you need to spend a reasonable amount of time on the ground to make those killer flights worthwhile. For us that meant this 10 days in Orlando itinerary, followed by an amazing 7 night Disney cruise. We had an absolute ball in the theme park capital of the world, hitting … [Read more...]
Visiting Paris is wonderful, but in amongst all that French art, culture, food and language, make time for some rainbow-coloured, Disney-flavoured escapism. A Disneyland Paris day trip is the perfect way to let loose. Our day trip to Disneyland Paris (DLP) was a last minute decision. We hadn't planned on going, but there was a super cheap deal (GBP 32 or about AUD 55 pp) … [Read more...]
Is "Let It Go" on perpetual loop at your house? Or perhaps you have a little Lightning McQueen fan? Recent movies like Aladdin, Toy Story and Finding Nemo have ensured that the popularity of Disney is even greater than when we were kids. But what is the best age to bring those movies to life? What is the best age for Disneyland? Well the easy answer is ANY age is best. … [Read more...]
"Would you come back to the castle with me to look after my flower garden?" Alannah, aged 8, was starry-eyed after this conversation with Belle on our Eastern Caribbean Disney cruise. "What sort of flowers should we plant? We must have roses of course, but what else?" The meet and greets with Disney Cruise characters are not the quick photo opportunities that you have in the … [Read more...]
