Epic Epcot and Beyond!!

Whether it was Epcot by day or night each were delightful. We leisurely strolled through the different countries, listening to the music, sampling the food and beverages. A trip to Epcot is is never complete for me until I have ridden the Test Track. This was Barry’s first time for Test Track. He loved it! Thank goodness for the Fastpass+ option or we probably would have passed it up as wait time was up to 140 minutes. Crowds at...

Magic Kingdom A SPLASH!

I remember as a child loyally watching “The Wonderful World of Disney.” I can still hear the distinctive voice of Mr. Disney as he described a fantasy world called Disneyland.  At that time, I could only dream.

As an adult, looking back over the many trips that I  took; I marvel...

Lessons from Life: Silent Night

It began as a warm, bright, starry night. But clouds were forming over the mountains and the smell of rain was present in the wind that was bullying the treetops. Soon a quiet drizzle began tip-tapping on the roof, and pit-patting on the lake. Within an hour, the rain began drumming down with force, gurgling noisily down the gutters, slapping against the windows, and hammering the lake. Lightning lit up the night sky making it...
