To China via Norway and Mexico at Epcot

A ride on the monorail from Magic Kingdom to Epcot was a new experience for us and we loved the aerial views of the park. We made our way to World Showcase again starting today with the first in the line-up of countries around the lagoon – Mexico. The pavilion here is a huge pyramid, dim…

Another Day At World Showcase

Another day at Epcot World Showcase and another selection of countries to visit – we decided to opt for France first of all. Strolling across the Pont des Arts footbridge with the Eiffel Tower in the background, it did feel a little like the waterfront of the Seine with flower carts and artists around. The…

Innoventions and Dinosaurs at EPCOT

Watery Fun At Blizzard Beach

Another trip away from the theme park madness, we decided to spend a chilled out day at Blizzard Beach, one of the two Disney water parks in Orlando. This is a 66 acre attraction, inspired by a ski resort with skis and snow references just about everywhere you look. Son loves nothing more than a day…

Magic Kingdom Parades

A big part of the Disney and Magic Kingdom experience is the parades. We loved all of them from the trolley dancers to the first parade we happened upon – the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It Street Party. We were just ambling around Main Street one morning when the music started to blast out,…
