Happy Christmas in July everyone! Even though it is the middle of summer we can't help but think about planning an upcoming Walt Disney World trip this November.

As part of our 10 year Anniversary Celebration we wanted to capture some special photographs together. We decided to do an in-park shoot as well as capture family portraits and candids on the night of our celebration dinner.
We brought along our friend Ryan Hartford from Ecliptic Media Photo to capture some magical shots in the park. He is super talented and we can't wait to share the amazing moments he captured! We got up bright and early on a Tuesday morning rocking our Disney themed formal wear and got started at some of the resort areas before the park opened...Read More
Being Disney nerds, we are always interested in special events and behind the scenes offerings at Disney Parks. We really enjoyed the "Keys to the Kingdom" tour at Walt Disney World and decided that for our latest visit to Disneyland we should take advantage of being in such a historic place. “Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps” is roughly a three hour tour that takes guests through the history of Disneyland and Walt Disney himself. Along with the history of the park, guests experience three attractions without waiting and will also enjoy lunch served at the tour gardens just inside the park near the Main street USA train station. We were lucky enough to book an entire tour time (max of 15 people) for our whole large group. It ended up feeling like a private tour and we were even able to use our Disney Vacation Club discount of 15% off for everyone!Read More

Soaring' at EPCOT has always been in my top five attractions on Walt Disney World property. It is always the first ride I prioritize a fast pass and I will wait in line if needed. I've experienced it many times and I still felt the thrill and emotion. When I heard that they were reimagining the the ride to go from being California scenes to incorporate locations from around the world I was pretty excited. I will admit I set the bar pretty high and was stoked to check it out.Read More
Earlier this week I read a Washington Post article that stated theme parks, mainly Walt Disney World, have left the middle class behind to cater to more elite vacationers. I found the author's statements very skewed with many facts omitted to perhaps prove a preconceived agenda, or shows poor research at best. Seeing this glaring misinformation I couldn't help but write a response. I have been on various trips over the years that have warranted different budget styles and can provide examples of how a Disney trip can be affordable and how the original author didn't tell the whole story.Read More
