A Look Back at Our 2014 Disney Side for the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop

Focused on the Magic
Today I am joining the fun of the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Focused on the Magic.  As we look back over 2014 and all the ways we showed our Disney Side, there is one photo that comes to mind.  It was my "little" Emily's seventh birthday, which of course, was an all out Frozen affair.  We built a fireplace out of boxes, red vinyl tableclothes and white electrical tape.  Add in a Princess Elsa/Emily and Olaf, and it made for a great way to celebrate my youngest's birthday!




From our family to yours, we hope your 2015 is filled lots of Disney magic and family fun!

To see what everyone else had to share as they looked back over 2014, head over to

Join in with your own photo or take a virtual "stroll" through this online photo album!
Happy New Year!

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Rooms Now Accommodate Five!

Disney has just started allowing families of five to book rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  The only other moderate that accommodates families of five is Disney's Port Orleans Riverside.  I am quite excited about this news.  As a family of five who cannot afford the cost of the deluxe resorts, this gives us more options to book a room we can fit in.  Even better, our 2015 vacation was actually booked at Port Orleans, but since we moved to the Caribbean, we were able to save money since we could get a standard room instead of a pool view room.

Of course, we love both of these resorts, so as long as we are at Disney, we are happy, but when we can save money and use it for something else, such as souvenirs or character meals, it makes for an even better vacation!  To see my reviews of both these moderate resorts that now accommodate families of five, use the links below:
