Top 10 Must Do's at Disneyland

Disneyland, known as the “Happiest Place on Earth” is the original park which Walt Disney opened for both children and adults. Originally, Walt Disney wanted to call the park “Mickey Mouse Park” or “Disneylandia” and later settled on Disneyland. Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955 with 18 rides and attractions including Autopia, Disneyland Railroad, Jungle Cruise, King Arthur Carrousel, Peter Pan and the Mad Tea Party. The five original lands that opened were Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and of course, Main Street USA.  Presently, Disneyland Park consists of nine themed “lands” and 52 attractions (including 49 rides). The nine themed lands are Main Street, USA, Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Critter Country, New Orleans Square, Mickey’s Toontown and Galaxy’s Edge. Here are the top 10 things I love to do while visiting Disneyland. 10. Meet Characters Characters are roaming around the park, unlike Disney World. You can find them walkin

SUPER NINTENDO WORLD at Universal Studios Hollywood

SUPER NINTENDO WORLD Entrance SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ at Universal Studios Hollywood is one of the most immersive, interactive and amazing lands that I've ever seen at a theme park. The land opened in February 2023 inviting guests to discover the world of Super Mario™ and step into familiar locations from the Mushroom Kingdom. SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ includes the attraction Mario Kart™: Bowser’s Challenge, Toadstool Cafe restaurant, and the 1-UP Factory™ store.  Upon first entering the land, I was experiencing sensory overload but in the absolute best way possible. I didn't know where to look first! The land is full of interactive elements, with so much movement, color and a ton of great photo opportunities. SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ is best experienced with an interactive Power-Up Band that you can use to collect digital coins and keys located through the land. Although you can still enjoy the area without a Power-Up Band, I highly recommend purchasing one to get the full experience.

Can a Disney Vacation Be Educational?

Travel is one of the most educational life experiences to give a child. A trip to Walt Disney World is no different. Disney Parks attractions are interesting, educational, and fun at the same time! There are valuable learning opportunities for your children in every subject area. For geography buffs, there are entire countries to explore. Get hands-on, in depth experience from around the world in Epcot’s World Showcase. Epcot offers cool "Kidcot" stops for extra learning fun! Children can try food and drinks from other countries, and even meet Cast Members from those actual countries who come to work at Disney. Your child will also see the different architecture and dress, hear languages and music, and taste foods of many different cultures.  For those who love history, especially American history, there is plenty to see! Walking through Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom is like going back to Colonial America. Take a ride on the Liberty Square Riverboat or enter the Hall

Victor Bodden Tours: Zip & Dip

While cruises to new destinations are wonderful and exciting, ports of call and shore excursions can be a bit overwhelming with so many options to choose from! There are many highlights to see and do in Roatan, Honduras.  After reviewing the choices we found this excursion option through Victor Bodden Tours, Zip & Dip that would let us experience three activities in one!   When doing research on the location, zip lining through the jungles and animal sanctuaries on the island where you can cuddle up with a sloth seemed to be the highest recommendations.  This excursion started at a location that combined both of these amazing experiences, plus a stop at a beautiful beach to enjoy the crystal clear blue waters of the island!  We were picked up with our group outside the port area.  The meeting location was easy to find and we only waited a few minutes before we boarded our small van and headed off.   When we arrived, our group was checked in and everyone was given wristbands of the
