Morning Commute

How is your morning commute each day? I am fortunate enough to work from home, so my morning commute is down the hall to my office. My wife only has a short 8 or so mile commute each day, so again not too bad (grant it there have been days that the 8 miles takes over 90 minutes). I think we all could agree no matter how short or long our morning commute is, we would trade it in for this commute any day of the week. This photo was taken…

Downtown Disney/Disney Springs Parking

The makeover of Downtown Disney to Disney Springs is well underway. We have mostly avoided that area over the past few visits as much as possible, because parking has been a problem during the construction. Since the first parking garage is partially open we thought that we would venture over to T-Rex for dinner back in November. Parking was a mess, and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon.  We have friends that are currently there now and they said it is still a mess. My…

Disney Tip: Skip Spaceship Earth at EPCOT in the morning

One thing we have noticed time and time again is a 20-45+ minute line to get on Spaceship Earth (that’s the big golf ball) ride at EPCOT before noon.  A lot of people will walk right to it, and before going deeper in the park, try and ride it.  The best thing to do is, as you walk by, check the line, if its less than 10 minutes, go ahead and ride, but if its more, there is a very good chance that later in the day, there will be…

Disney Cruise Tip: Choose Second Seating

If you have never been on a cruise before, or at least a Disney Cruise, there are two dinner times. The first seating, or Main Seating, is between 5:30pm – 6pm while the Second Seating is between 7:30-8pm. Your initial gut feeling may be to go with the first seating, especially with children since that is probably closer to your normal dining time at home.  One thing to think about is what time you will need to start preparing for dinner. If you have dinner at 5:30, and you and…
