Disney with Special Needs: Road Trip Edition Part 3

You have your road trip all mapped out, you’re excited about hitting all those milestones, and your suitcases are full and ready to go. So what’s next? If you’re me, you start preparing your in-car luggage. Just because I don’t fly doesn’t mean that I don’t do checked and carry-on luggage. I pack my suitcase, add a luggage tag (the day we get our new ones with our MagicBands is always a celebration), and hand it up to Mr. Hubs to put in our car backpack. I know I’m not going to see my “checked” luggage until we bring it into the resort…and that’s why I bring some carry-on as well. Continue reading

As I’ve said many times, I am all about saving money on my Disney vacation, but I also like to know that I am getting the most value out of my trip.

Find out how the FREE services of a Disney World travel agent can make planning your Disney vacation simple and stress free!

Karen grew up in the Boston area and traveled to Disney World many times with her parents and sister. Always staying at the Fort Wilderness Cabins gave the trips a feeling of a home away from home. It also started the tradition of attending the Hoop Dee Doo Review on each trip! Somehow that show sparked her interest in the Disney College Program. Which she did in the fall of 2002, working as a hostess @ Captain Jacks in Downtown Disney. Now as an adult, Karen finds herself traveling to the parks on a yearly basis! Photography has always been a hobby of Karen’s, but over the past few years it has become her passion. It’s even taken her to her favorite place! The Make a Wish Foundation sent a family to Disney for a week and Karen was lucky enough to be their photographer of choice! She got to tag along and photograph their memories being made. She hopes to get that experience again someday!
