By young children, I am referring to ages 2, 3, 4 and some 5. This is a big audience for Disney, but I have seen parents who simply want to do it all. It is understandable, as the Disney vacation is an expensive one. You will want to do as much as possible to feel a value for your vacation dollar. I am not immune! I often rush from site to site, push the family to get ready and get going! To some extent, this is an important quality for someone in each family, otherwise most of your trip may be spent sleeping, lollygagging around, and waiting in lots of lines, getting frustrated.

With the newly redesigned Test Track a much improved version (see my video), crowds for this ride now rival and could surpass that of Soarin’, in terms of wait times. With that said: Is it possible for a normal family to ride both Test Track and Soarin’ attractions in one day at the Epcot theme park in Walt Disney World? It can be done! But, it is not easy, nor always totally enjoyable. Let me give you some tips based on my experience there in June 2013 to get the best possible Test Track/Soarin’/Epcot experience! Continue reading

I’d like to take a moment to share our sorrow at the horrible day experienced in Newtown, CT. I can only imagine the pain and sorrow the entire community is experiencing. I can think of those families whose children were never old enough to go to Disney World or Disneyland and will now never have that chance.

Interesting photo tour and commentary of construction going on at WDW including the Grand Floridian Expansion (Disney Vacation Club) as well as shots of Big Thunder Mountain, Fantasyland, and some other going-ons around the Magic Kingdom.
I commented “Boo, bring back the skyway”. You see, I think this is an awful upgrade, to prepare for an interactive queue for Peter Pan!?! OK, I don’t mind interactive queues, the wait for Peter Pan can be quite extensive, but really, is this the best we can hope for? I would rather the skyway return! And how does this make way for an interactive queue for Peter Pan, its on the opposite side of the path!
