Last week while pumping gas at our local Quik Trip, I had a moment. The pavement was damp from an early morning shower, the sun was rising and casting long shadows between the gas pumps, and the audio speakers were playing a catchy toe-tapping tune. Customers were moving about in preparation of the full day […]
Walt Disney World is so much fun! There is so much to see and so much to do. So much that, at times, it can become too much for any member of the family. And then it might rain, or it might be hot, or your youngest might not be tall enough to ride an […]

Part 1 / Part 2 Disney’s California Adventure Park has undergone a lot of exciting changes lately–with more to come in the near future. The largest addition was Cars Land in 2012, but many other changes have been made since then. This new area of the park has a variety of attractions and eateries as well as […]
Walt Disney World is truly magical. It’s a beautiful place where you can wish upon a star and your dreams really can come true.

Happy birthday! Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida recently turned 30 years old. In celebration I thought we’d share a walk around World Showcase together. We won’t tarry long, we have a whole world to cover. Look for more in depth reviews in future posts.
Let’s start our journey in the United Kingdom. Epcot’s UK pavilion combines aspects of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. Stroll down cobble-stone streets among old-world British architecture and gardens. Venture into a short hedge maze that kids will love. There’s a wide selection of shops, bountiful entertainment and a street-performing comedy improv troupe, and many picturesque settings to relax and enjoy.
