Five Inexpensive and Easy Disney World Souvenirs

When you travel to Walt Disney World, you’ll want to commemorate your family’s vacation by taking home a little piece of the magic. By planning ahead and thinking outside the stuffed-animal-and-a-t-shirt box, you can come away with practical, unique souvenirs that remind you of your magical trip for years to come.

Here are five ideas for your next trip:

1. Autographed Pillowcase

Instead of buying an autograph book at the parks, plan ahead by bringing a white cotton pillowcase and Sharpie “Stained” fabric marker for characters to sign during your trip. When you return home, you can frame the pillowcase or actually use it on your pillow! This souvenir will cost about $5 depending on the type of pillowcase you purchase. (Tip: Wash, dry and iron the pillowcase before you travel, and bring a small piece of cardboard or hard-back book to place under the pillowcase when characters are signing.)  You can also do something similar with a photo mat and then frame with a photo of your favo…

Top 10 Must Do's at the Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom was the first park to open at Walt Disney World on October 1, 1971.  Known as "the Most Magical Place on Earth," the Magic Kingdom has consistently had the most visitors annually than any other theme park worldwide.  The park consists of 6 wonderfully themed lands; Advenureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A.  Standing at 189 feet tall is the park's icon, Cinderella Castle, which provides a spectacular backdrop for the nighttime fireworks show.

The Magic Kingdom has the most attractions of any of the four parks and perhaps that is why I had such a hard time narrowing down the Must Do's to only 10!  Since it was just too difficult to pick only 10 Must Do’s, there are a couple of honorable mentions that are worth noting.

10. Meet Characters
You can't go to the Magic Kingdom without meeting at least one character!  From Princesses to Mickey and pals, there is no shortage of characters throughout the…

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? I wanted to work on a movie set

Why did you become a travel agent? I loved advising my friends on their Disney vacations and my sister suggested I look into doing it as a profession.  It seemed like a great idea so I looked in it and met Pam on a message board – it was one of the best decisions I have made joining Kingdom Konsultant Travel!

Favorite vacation destination? Disney World with Hawaii a close second

Star Wars Day at Sea on Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line offers a truly out-of-this-galaxy themed cruise that's a must do for Star Wars fans! Star Wars Day at Sea is available on select 7-Night Caribbean cruises sailing from Port Canaveral and combines the power of the Force with a little Disney magic.

I recently sailed on the Disney Fantasy and we were lucky enough to experience our first Star Wars Day at Sea sailing. We are pretty big Star Wars fans so we were very excited for everything Disney Cruise Line had in store for us on this specially themed cruise. In preparation for this cruise, we had our 3-year old son start watching the Star Wars movies and I'm happy to report that he's also a big fan now!

When we first boarded the ship, I immediately noticed the additional Star Wars Day at Sea themed photo opportunities in the atrium. There was a large Star Wars Day at Sea backdrop and there was also Han Solo frozen in carbonite a la The Empire Strikes Back. It was nice that these were up all week so you had…

With the convenient carry out window you can take your pizza to go or you can choose to eat in the outside dining area. You can sit anywhere and they will bring out your fresh made pizza or salad. While the seating is outside, there is a covered roof with ceiling fans to provide shade and a small breeze. Perfect for those sunny summer days.  A variety ofRed and White pizzas are offered.  (For those who don't know, Red pizza has marinara sauce and White pizza has no sauce but may have a layer of olive oil and seasonings.) There are 3 different salads available including a Classic Caesar, Arugula, and Caprese salad. The salads are large; approximately a 12-inch plate covered 4 or 5 inches high. We did not actually order a salad but the table next to us did a…
