Dining With A Princess

Ever wanted to have dinner with a princess?  How about dining in her castle, with all its royal, opulent décor and really good food?  We found out that it’s entirely possible at Walt Disney World.  You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in Cinderella’s Castle. Upon entering the castle, Cinderella will greet you and you can have a picture taken with her in the foyer.  Then, while your meal is being served, other Disney princesses will make a royal entrance to visit each table for a meet-and-greet, complete with a photo, if you like.

Zootopia Review

We took the opportunity to take our three year old grandson to see Disney’s newest PIXAR animated movie, Zootopia, on opening weekend.  Our first choice for theaters was sold out for at least two showings; so we then purchased advance tickets online to make sure we could see the movie at our convenience.

Beginning this spring, Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia” will be visiting Disneyland Resort, where guests can find them on Hollywood Boulevard at Disney California Adventure park and at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort during the “Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It!” Street Party at Magic Kingdom Park. “Zootopia” opens in theaters in 3D on March 4. (©Disney)

Run Disney – Walt Disney World Version

On Saturday, February 20, we ran our first race at Walt Disney World, the Enchanted 10K during the Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  In a previous post, we described our runs at Disneyland.  Running is running, so this will be a comparison of running at the two parks.

Just like the parks themselves, the location dictates the size.  The runs in Florida are nearly twice the size of the ones in California.  The simple comparisons of the first 2016 races show:

Disneyland – Star Wars 10K – 8994 finishers vs WDW Enchanted 10K – 11,341 finishers.  Disneyland Star Wars Half Marathon – 11,316 finishers vs WDW Princess Half Marathon – 20,126 finishers.

While we mentioned that Disney makes running fun, Continue Reading →
