This hotel stay report covers our recent experience at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where we check out the new health safety protocol, enhanced cleaning, dining, pools, and sunset views of Magic Kingdom as Walt Disney World continues its phased reopening. Additionally, we’ll either flip-flop on the Contemporary, or “expose” its two-faced nature, depending upon your perspective.

After a few months away, we return to Walt Disney World for the reopening of the Deluxe Villa Resorts, using our DVC points for a stay at the BoardWalk Villas plus meals at Topolino’s Terrace. In this quasi-trip report, we’ll share photos, what it was like to be back, and why we would not recommend planning a
This rainy day report offers a recap of our experience at the first 2019 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. In it, we share commentary and dozens of new photos from this year’s holiday party at Walt Disney World. Before we even get started, we’ll preface this by saying it was an incredibly wet night–a downright
After years of waiting, today is the day that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens to the general public.

We pick up from Part 1 of our Disneyland Christmas 2018 Trip Report across the Esplanade in Disney California Adventure. Due to the crowds, we spent a good deal of time in DCA, and would’ve spent even more time here if World of Color – Season of Light were being shown. Not to be a
In Part 1 of our Walt Disney World Fall Trip Recap, I left off with an anecdote about arriving to Magic Kingdom at night via water taxi, and how it was like an oddly utopian scene. In this installment, we pick up once inside the park, riding another quasi-utopian form of transportation: the TTA Peoplemover.
We’ll continue sharing experiences from our recent Walt Disney World trip with something we haven’t done in a while: a trip report. While our construction updates and our crowd post tell some of the story, it’s been a while since I sat down and posted stray thoughts and photos from Walt Disney World in trip
We just returned from a fall trip to France, during which we spent some time at Disneyland Paris. It had been a year since our last visit and major update, so thought we’d share some thoughts on the park post-25th Anniversary, a Phantom Manor refurbishment update, food, etc., along with 30 photos. Our trip began
We recently returned from our summer trip to Japan, as you’ve probably noticed by the uptick in other updates from Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea. It’s been a while since we provided a broad update from these parks, so thought we’d do that here with some quick hits about various changes, food, etc., along with 40+
If you followed our updates on social media, you might know that we were stuck at Walt Disney World during Hurricane Irma. Many readers asked for us to share the experience, so I thought I’d recount the story of how we get stuck, Walt Disney World’s handling of the situation, and other details. Being at
After an excellent port day in Bergen for Day 6 of the our Norwegian Fjords cruise aboard the Disney Magic, Day 7 was our final day at sea. I’ll wrap up the cruise report with this installment, covering both this day and the following spent in Copenhagen. Since it was our day at sea, the
