Port Orleans Riverside Review – Walt Disney World Resorts

Port Orleans Riverside is a moderate resort at Walt Disney World. We stayed there for a few nights back in March of 2017. Coronado Springs has always been our favorite moderate resort, but we figured since we tried out Port Orleans French Quarter and had stayed at Coronado a few times we should try out another moderate resort to give good feedback to those who were contemplating staying at Disney.  It wasn’t our favorite moderate, but check out why I think it’s still a great option for families!

Disney VS Universal – How I Cheated on Disney with Universal

We went to Disney World for the first time in May 2012 and I instantly fell in love.  Everything about Disney was SO magical and I compared EVERY OTHER theme park to it.  I didn’t WANT to ever go to Universal.  There’s no way it could compare to my love for Disney.  I was wrong.  This post is about how I cheated on Disney with Universal…  Disney VS Universal!

Disney Dream Cruise to the Bahamas

This past October we made a split decision to go on our first Disney Dream Cruise to the Bahamas!  We booked the 4-night Bahamian cruise on the Disney Dream on a whim and then rushed to get everything in order before we left. There were a lot of scares with hurricane warnings and a forecast full of rain, but it was too late… we had no choice but to take the risk and make the most of it!
