5 Ways to Have Holiday Fun OUTSIDE of the Parks!

Happy December, Disney Fans!!!      Has everyone recovered from your turkey coma? I hope so! No disrespect to Thanksgiving, but my favorite part about the day is that, in our household, it officially marks the beginning of the holiday season! (The Hubs insists on no Christmas movies or music until Thanksgiving night. Bah-humbug!)      What's not to adore about the smell of baking cookies and a fresh cut balsam fir?

The Happiest Campground on Earth: Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort!

I recently had the opportunity to spend a week at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort   This is a resort that I love.  I have stayed many times in the past, although it had been 6 years since my last visit.  Seeing The Fort through fresh eyes made me remember and appreciate just how beautiful and peaceful it is, and I can guarantee I will not let another 6 years pass before staying here again!  Here you can feel like you are away from it all, but still hear the faint whistle of the train at the Magic Kingdom in the distance.  Fort Wilderness is located in the Magic Kingdom area, along Bay Lake. There is an efficient internal bus service that will transport you between the Settlement Depot, near the Marina, and the Outpost Depot, near the entrance.  From these depots you can catch transportation to your desired destination.  Transportation to the Magic Kingdom is by boat, while all other parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney are by bus (from the Outpost Depot).  A second boat loop
