    Travel Back in Time to Williamsburg

    Williamsburg is a town rich with history and colonial culture but did you know that it also provides some really fun family entertainment options as well? I know because I used to live there. I think most people associate the area with Colonial Williamsburg and while that is the main attraction, it is not the only one. The New York Times rated Williamsburg as a Top 2019 Travel Destination and in this post, I’ll be highlighting several points of interest and don’t-miss-attractions in this area that both you and your kids will love. Colonial Williamsburg: This what most people think of when they think of Williamsburg and it does offer an amazing and…

    Disney Movie Lineup for 2019

    I’m super excited for the new lineup of Disney movies coming out this year! After a stellar 2018, especially with Mary Poppins Return (my fav), it seems hard to top, doesn’t it. I can tell you this, my kids are really waiting for two movies in particular and those are The Lion King and Star Wars.  I am looking forward to those too in addition to Alladin, Dumbo, and Frozen 2. But the bottom line is, 2019 has a great lineup of Disney movies and we can’t wait to see them all. First up is the new Captain Marvel movie hitting theaters March 8th, 2019. The story follows Carol Danvers…

    Howl-O-Ween at The Great Wolf Lodge

      We recently took a trip to The Great Wolf Lodge and we had a blast!! This was our first time visiting the Great Wolf Lodge-Williamsburg and let me say, it did not disappoint. The boys, now a little older, were super excited to go back especially for the Howl-O-Ween activities this month.   The Water Park: We arrived early with our swimsuits packed in a separate bag, but to our surprise and pleasure, the room was ready so we checked in and got settled. I think it took the boys a whopping 3 seconds to get into their swimsuits and down to the water park. I’m not sure what they loved…

    First Disney Cruise + TIPS

    This year, my son and I decided to take a 3 night Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. I had never been on one before so I honestly did not know what to expect. Our cruise ship was the Disney Dream and it included 2 stops at Nassau, Bahamas and Castaway Cay (Disney’s private island). Arrival: Once on board the ship, I was amazed not only by how beautiful the ship was but also at the never ending list of things to do. From swimming pools with big screens (showing constant Disney movies), to live shows and fireworks, it’s nonstop entertainment. There’s so much to do that it’s hard to know where to start. For example, there are a variety of pool areas for…

    LEGOLAND Florida Resort

    Our trip to LEGOLAND Florida was like finding a diamond in the rough. I love this place and my son does too. Growing up, trips to Orlando meant Disney and Universal because we never ventured farther down 1-4 than WDW. But I highly suggest that you do and you will discover this gem of a park located about 30 min outside of Orlando in Winter Haven, FL. The park is reasonably priced, very clean, and colorful, embodying those Scandinavian qualities that I happen to love. You’ll be happy to know that you won’t be standing in line for hours for  rides or for food.  This park caters to families with small children ages 2-12. I…

    Mary Poppins Returns- Trailer

    “Winds in the east, there’s a mist coming in, like something is brewing, about to begin” ~ Bert (Mary Poppins). I just cannot wait for this movie!  Mary Poppins IS my favorite Disney movie and has been since I  was a child.  The orginal masterpiece, which earned 13 Academy Award nominations, will be hard to top but I’m sure Disney will add their bit of magic to this version and it will sparkle just like the original.  Mary Poppins Returns is set in Depression-era London where a now grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with his three children, have endured a personal loss. The always mysterious, yet charming Mary Poppins returns to help…
