How To (Mostly) Stay on the Keto Diet at Walt Disney World | #Keto #Disney

As you likely know by now, I have changed my way of eating to a Keto lifestyle. It has been about two months know and I feel better than ever. I knew going in to this that I would be spending nearly two weeks (12 days) at the most magical place on Earth, Walt Disney World. Being Disney Vacation Club members allowed us to be able to escape this snowy, frigid, and downright depressing winter, and enjoy some fun in the sun. It is no secret that Disney is our favorite vacation spot – I mean, it is why we joined the DVC. But there are temptations everywhere for someone trying to cut out carbs – here is how I survived my extended Disney vacation on Keto!

If You Love Good Food & Winnie The Pooh – The Crystal Palace Breakfast at Walt Disney World is A Must! | #Disney

If you haven’t figured out that we are a Disney family by now, there is probably no hope for you. Ha, just kidding. But honestly, we are Disney Vacation Club members and love going “home” two or three times a year. We have several must dos when we go, which includes rides, character meet and greets, and of course, restaurants. One that the entire family looks forward to every visit is breakfast at The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom.

How to Enjoy Your Disney Cruise as a Couple (While Your Kids are with You!) | #DisneyCruise

If you are a Disney family, I highly recommend taking a Disney Cruise at some point. My family has been on two, so far, and are dying to go on another! Thanks to the Oceaneer Club and Lab, this can feel like a couples getaway as well as a family vacation. There is plenty for Disney fans of all ages to do on board and in port, including things for parents to do while the kids play at the Club. My girls barely wanted to leave – in fact, they fought with us a couple times when we said it was time for dinner.

17 Can’t Miss Meet And Greets at All 4 Parks in Walt Disney World | #DisneyPlanning #Disney

As I am sure you know, my family and I are Disney Vacation Club Members. We went so often that we decided it would make financial sense to join. Our only regret? That we didn’t join sooner. Because of this we tend to slow down a bit at the parks (however I honestly think we still move faster than the average Disney World goer). Some trips we tend to focus on the rides and the shows, and not as much on the meet and greets. That being said, there are a handful at each park that we try our hardest to make it to, no matter what our plans are.

Inside The Disney Vacation Club Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village with Video! | #AnimalKingdomLodge #DVCMember

My family goes to Walt Disney World quite often. In fact, we are Disney Vacation Club members so we are there at least twice a year, if not more. One of our favorite places to stay is the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Yes, it is a bit far away from most of the parks (not Animal Kingdom of course), but it is still a great place to stay. I totally adore the lobby and all of it’s decor. Plus, Boma is one of the best places to eat in all of Disney!

The 5 Best Quick Service & Sit Down Service Restaurants at Walt Disney World | #DisneyDining #Disney

My family and I spend quite a bit of time at The Most Magical Place on Earth – Walt Disney World. Our friends and family know this, and I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked for tips and tricks when visiting. I have written about a lot of this on my site, so be sure to browse my Disney Planning section – but something I have been asked about a lot recently is Disney Dining. I decided to finally sit down and write about my favorite 10 restaurants – 5 quick service and 5 sit down service.

Haul-o-Ween at Disney California Adventure PLUS Throw A Cars 3 Viewing Party | #Cars3Bluray #ThorRagnarokEvent

A couple of nights before I was heading off to LA for the Thor: Ragnarok press event, I was told some super exciting news! We would be going to Disney’s California Adventure & Disneyland – to have dinner at Cars Land and celebrate the fact that Cars 3 was coming out on digital and blu-ray. I had only been there once before, so I was really excited. We would only have a few short hours to explore, and there was so much I wanted to see. Especially since for the first time ever, Cars Land was all decorated for Haul-o-Ween. The decorations were incredible – and inspiring. They got me thinking about how I could throw a Haul-o-Ween themed viewing party for Cars 3 at home.

Inside The Disney Vacation Club Copper Creek Resort 1 BR Villa with Video Tour! | #CopperCreek #DVCMember

Not too long ago Disney Vacation Club invited us to come check out their latest resort – Copper Creek. It is located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – where the DVC also has Boulder Ridge Villas.  Of course, we jumped at the chance. We just purchased DVC at the Polynesian this past February and have been talking about adding on points at Copper Creek. Well, I can stay after our visit here, we will likely be doing so in the next couple of years. The sooner the better I say – I cannot wait to go back!

3 Reasons We Always Book A Dinner At Be Our Guest During Our Disney Trips | #BeOurGuest

You may already know that we are Disney Vacation Club members. We joined on our Disney Cruise in February 2017 – and I have no idea why we didn’t do it sooner. We vacation at Disney World at least twice a year, if not more. When you are 180 days out from your trip, you can make your dining reservations. There are several that we strive to get – and one of those is dinner at Be Our Guest. This is arguably one of the hardest reservations to make, and should always be this first one you shoot for. TIP: Try to book it for one of your last days vs. one of your first days for a better shot at it.

Create Memories That Will Last A Lifetime At The Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party | #Disney #DisneyWorld

Something that I have always wanted to do while visiting Walt Disney World is attend a fireworks dessert party. In fact, we almost bought tickets to one during the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year. So imagine how excited we were to see a dessert party on our itinerary for our Copper Creek press event! I told my daughters right away and they started jumping up and down talking about all of the desserts they were going to eat. Honestly, I was more excited for the prime viewing spot for the Happily Ever After fireworks – but of course, the desserts were a great perk!
