Universal Orlando Resort offers a large number of thrill rides and attractions for older children, teens, and adults, but what if you’re traveling with younger children? Most major attractions have height requirements ranging from 34” to 54”, and a few attractions even with lower height requirements may be too frightening for most children, such as Skull Island: Reign of Kong. There are, however, some attractions and areas made specifically for younger children to enjoy. Continue reading
When going on a Disney vacation, most people think about what park they’re going to and what rides they’ll be going on.

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!

When you board your train car, they tell you to hold tight for the “Wildest Ride in the Wilderness”, and a wild ride is definitely what you get. Continue reading
