NEW! Photo Safari Of The 2018 Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs!


Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Disney Guys and Gals!

     Everyone getting in the holiday spirit yet? I know Disney sure is! Pretty much all of Disney property is decorated and ready to be festive. This weekend we took the Littles to see this year's Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs, and it's even cooler than last year's display!

     For those of you who are not familiar, this holiday display features Christmas trees, each uniquely decorated in the theme of a different Disney movie or franchise. You can enter from either behind the Christmas store, or from between Once Upon a Toy and Earl of Sandwich, though I think it's more set up to be started in the latter of the two locations. The Trail is lit up at night and features intermittent "snow" showers. There are Photopass photographers at some of the more popular trees, to snap pictures that actually have ALL of your family members in them. There's a snack and merchandise stand in the middle, (of course), and it's also where you'll be able to meet the big man himself. Santa's Chalet is a meet and greet area where you DON'T have to wait in line, (well, you only have to wait a minimal amount of time)! They use a system much like FastPass, so that you can enjoy the Trail and other offerings at Disney Springs, and return to the Chalet when it is your turn, and have a minimal wait time. Pretty sweet way to do it! Overall, the Christmas Tree Trail is a really fun and festive, (not to mention FREE), holiday activity that you can enjoy, and this year's display tops previous years. Not only are there some new trees on the Trail, but the snack stand has also added some new holiday treats too, so let's check it all out!

And the snack stand...


Not only does the snack stand have fun holiday cookies, crispy rice treats, refillable popcorn and drink containers and pretzels, this also have a cool new addition this year: 




Our kids can't have any red dyes, and we were psyched to find out that not only does this freshly spun cotton candy come in awesome holiday flavors like Gingerbread, Candy Cane and Egg Nog, but it's also made with natural flavorings and natural coloring. No dye! My little dude was quick to order the Candy Cane flavor, which he and I both really liked. At the end of the Trail, we also stopped in Goofy's Candy Company to check out the rest of the holiday sweets and treats, and we were happy to find that they now have the same dye-free cotton candy available there too! (Along with a few other treats!)


On the way out, we stopped into the newly designed World of Disney and saw a few new holiday merchandise items too. I love the Mickey lederhosen sweater! Too cute!

Cute new Goofy hat

Aw, attraction patterned holiday PJs!

     The Springs just kept getting busier and busier as the day wore on, so we hit the road... but you know I'll be back again soon with even more fun holiday pictures and reviews. In the meantime, why don't you start planning your holiday visit with the agents at Kingdom Konsultant Travel. They're the best! 

     Until next time, have a magical week!!!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend. Charcuterie: Ordering a charcuterie board for your family or party is a great way to enhance an arrival day when you might be a bit snacky or maybe for a pool day at the resort.  It's the perfect snack to munch on throughout the day and makes you feel just a little bit fancy.   Journey Across the Board This is the charcuterie you order to feel bougie and pampered and really elevate your trip.  Their boards are premium and they can be designed and personalized in so many ways. You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
