Animal Kingdom

This was our final day at the parks before our frantic return home to tend to mom. For those of you that haven’t gotten an update, she’s doing so much better these days. She’s finally back at home. Although I’ve asked her not to drive, at least for a while, she’s had wonderful friends that […]

Hollywood Studios and Epcot

Well, it’s been several months since we last set foot in the parks, but because I promised my family and friends (Hi mom!) that I would post our vacation pictures, I’m slowly posting them. So apologies for the delay in doing this, but better late than never, right?

Magic Kingdom

As many of you know, our Disney vacation was cut short when we had to rush home and be with my mom. She was at death’s door by the time we found out what had happened and were finally able to see her at the hospital. She has since made a miraculous recovery and keeps […]

Travel Day

Well we finally arrived! Using the Magic Bands was pretty neat and fast. We used them to pick up our Magic Express shuttle from the airport straight to Wilderness Lodge. But then, when we checked in, they kept telling me that I had no credit card on file and their system was down for the […]

Today is the Day!

Like the counter to the right says: “Mickey Mouse is waiting!” We cannot wait for our vacation to begin! Check back here often as I will try to upload photos every night. That’s if I’m awake enough by the time we get back to our hotel room. Gotta run, it’s almost 7 am and I […]

MagicBands at DisneyWorld

I logged into our Disney account this morning and the message I’ve been waiting for appeared: Please customize your MagicBands. For those of you that haven’t been to Disney in ages, or haven’t heard me chat endlessly about it, Disney is heading into the next technological age. By using the MagicBands along with a special […]

Goodbye Virginia Beach!

D’s flight is on time and he’ll be home soon! He sent me one last picture of the beach before his flight departed so that I can share it with you. We can’t wait to have him back home! 1:20 pm update – D texted me. There’s a power outage in Baltimore. He’s still on […]

Virginia Beach, Day Two

Spoke to my hubby this afternoon. His presentation went well today. He said they had a group dinner on the deck overlooking the ocean so he was able to chill out and walk out on the beach. He even waded into the water! We can’t wait to pick him up from the airport tomorrow and […]
