Terrific Tuesdays: Nighttime Epcot

Thrifty Thursday: Should you get the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package?

For many, a visit to Walt Disney World during the Holiday Season would not be complete without seeing the Candlelight Processional.

This is the favorite time of year for many, but all that Holiday magic can get a bit dimmed when combined with concerns about keeping costs under control.
