Romance at Walt Disney World? Look No Further than an Illuminations Cruise

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Red Loop. Today we are sharing where you can have a date night and find romance at Disney.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, my thoughts have turned to romance. One may think of Walt Disney World as a place for kids, but there are so many places adults can turn for a date night. With lots of options for babysitting as well, it’s the perfect place for some romance.

On our last trip to Walt Disney World, my husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary so, of course, we were looking for a romantic date night.

When walking through it the first day, my son remarked, “Mom, I think we’ve found someone who loves Disney more than you.” Continue reading

No, Disney Did Not Get Rid of Disability Access or Accommodations…

…although they did make changes to it and continue to do so. Yet twice in recent weeks, I’ve had people tell me that they had. One even told me she wouldn’t visit again until they had one. I let her know that she could visit today then as it still exists and we have continued to use the Disability Access Service on recent visits.

It is quite different than how it was a couple of years ago when one could simply get a pass and walk up to any attraction and virtually get on with no wait. That system is definitely gone. There is a new system in place at both Disneyland Resort® and Walt Disney World Resort®, although just like many other systems at the resorts, there are even differences between the two.
