Two Seattleites addicted to The Mouse: Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Vacation Club (Aulani)
Episode 40 - The Fantastic Fantasy
It had been 6 long years since we'd been on the Disney Fantasy, and it was SO good to be back. This time we were joined by our great friends and enjoyed a 1 bedroom concierge suite with a bump-out veranda. Talk about spoiled! This episode we talk about our port arrival experience, the concierge spaces, the kids club spaces, and our overall impression of the food onboard.
Episode 39 - Three for DW
How we fit so much into just 3 days in Disney World we haven't a clue. Join us for a recap of the first part of our Big Summer Blowout as we hit the parks for few days with our son Sterling before Kaitlyn arrived for the rest of our vacation. It was hot, but we had a plan to cope with that, miss the afternoon storms, and have a ton of fun. Listen to hear how it all went down!
Episode 38 - Steakhouse 71
OMG - our lunch at the new Steakhouse 71 during our recent trip to see the Mouse in Florida was INCREDIBLE! This week's episode is our review of the reimagined Waves Restaurant, now going as Steakhouse 71. It's incredible food at moderate prices (at least for by Disney standards), and the 15 layer chocolate cake is to die for. Just make sure you eat before you listen!
Episode 37 - Disney Packing Tips
Let's face it - we're all busy and when it comes to getting ready to go on vacation you are either the kind of person who starts packing a month in advance, or you're up until the middle of the night right before you leave hoping you don't forget anything. Frankly, we're a little more in the latter camp, but we do start getting prepared long before that sleepless night. This week we share some essentials to bring with you on your Disney trip, whether that's to the parks or on a cruise, and of course the flights to and from. Our hope is these suggestions can help you be prepared for an amazing Disney vacation!
Episode 36 - Our Caribbean Christmas
This week we offer our trip report for our Merrytime Cruise back in 2016 on the Disney Fantasy to the Easter Caribbean, with stops at Tortola, St. Thomas, and Castaway Cay. We got spoiled in concierge this cruise, had an incredible dinner at Remy onboard, sailed for the first time with Aristocat Charters, and enjoyed a cabana on Castaway. And of course there was plenty of Disney magic to go around.
Funnily enough, this episode comes out a week after we just sailed the exact same itinerary on the Fantasy - but during August instead of December and with our best friends. We'll be covering that cruise here soon!
Episode 35 - 2016 WDW Very Merry
We're back to Disney World on this week's episode as we remember our time in the parks before our Christmas Cruise. We stayed in a 3 bedroom grand villa at Bay Lake Tower with a beautiful view of Magic Kingdom and the fireworks - what a treat that was! Give a listen to find out one of our favorite places to view the fireworks from in the Magic Kingdom - and it's not where you think it might be. ;-)
