Tomorrowland: The Tale of Two Wolves

One of our favorite quotes from the new Disney movie Tomorrowland,great movie with an inspiring message. When daughter, Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) reminds her father Eddie Newton (Tim McGraw) about this old Indian Legend.

There are two wolves who are always fighting.
One is darkness and despair.
The other is light and hope.
The question is: which wolf wins?

The one you feed.




Happy Walt Wednesday.

Happy Wordless Wednesday.

Amphicar at Walt Disney World: A Closer Look

It's a car. It's a boat. It's an amphibious automobile.
They call it an Amphicar!

Ahoy there! Did you know there are currently nine of these part land, part sea beauties operating right outside The Boathouse in Walt Disney World Resort? They are all a part of the newly re-imagined Downtown Disney Area which is getting a magical makeover into what eventually will be called 'Disney Springs.' (To be complete in 2016.) Walt Disney World guests can now experience these Captain-guided Amphicar tours in vintage vehicles, which are open and ready for cruisers! You and 2 of your closest friends can hop aboard on the Amphicar launch, as your car drives right into the water. Make a splash in Orlando & embark on this 20-minute tour of the landmarks of Downtown Disney! Included in your journey is a little whimsical history lesson about the Amphicar from your Captain and how they came to be. (We hear they may have a joke or two up their sleeve.) It's the perfect thing to include in your #CoolestSummer Bucket List at Walt Disney World!


About the Vintage Amphicar Tour:
The cost is $125 per car.
Vintage Amphicar Tour is a 20 minute trip.
Tours are offered hourly (weather permitting) each day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Every Amphicar trip includes a skipper who is the perfect informative tour guide.
Each vehicle seats up to three guests (three adults or two adults and two small children).
You don't have to be dining at The Boathouse in order to take a tour.
They currently accept walk up reservations.


About the Amphicars:
Amphicars are rare vehicles that drive on land and float in the water!
There are currently nine of these restored Amphicars at Walt Disney World Resort.

Only 3,878 of these unique vehicles were produced during the 1960’s (1961 to 1968). 
The Boathouse is the only place in the world where you get the opportunity to ride in these vintage vehicles.

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival in Full Bloom

The time is almost up for this year's Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival, as the Walt Disney World Resort bids farewell to Spring and welcomes in the Coolest Summer Ever! Before it goes, we wanted to share some of our sightings at this year's International Festival! Epcot is by far one of our favorite Disney Parks. The gorgeous sights, delightful sounds, and fresh flavors, this event is a great way to experience Disney Magic in a unique way. Of course we are always sad to see the Flower and Garden Festival go, but like all of our other favorite special events at Disney Parks, it will be back next year! And while we are waiting for it to come back we can enjoy other amazing happenings like Star Wars Weekends, Frozen Summer Fun, during the Coolest Summer Ever at the Walt Disney World Resort!


Here are some highlights not to be missed around Epcot's World Showcase:
Outdoor Kitchens with seasonal springtime treats like Pineapple Dole Whip, Frushi, and Sangria. 
Educational opportunities that teach how to bring spring at Epcot to your own garden
Magical topiaries (grown locally) featuring your favorite Disney Characters 
*Anna and Elsa Topiaries new this year!*
Entertaining Music at the Garden Rocks Concert Series
Butterflies on the Go presented by Go Go SqueeZ
English Tea Garden by Twinings of London
and so much more!


Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival is the perfect blend of family fun for all ages.
With only a few days left, make sure you visit soon before it fades away. 
Special Event dates March 4 - May 17, 2015

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows: WIN! WIN!

Want to figure out an easy and fun way to see if booking your next Walt Disney World vacation stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows is right for you? We have created a little quiz that may help you to see if this is the right Walt Disney World Resort for you and your family!


Do you like to feel a tropical breeze blowing in your hair?
Do you like sipping fruity drinks with a tiny umbrella at the top?
Do you think a flower lei is the perfect way to accessorize an ensemble?
Are you a fan of Tiki culture?
Is your favorite dance The Hula?
Are you a Dole Whip afficiando?
Is Lilo and Stitch your favorite Disney movie?
Do you wish you lived on an island?
Are pineapples your favorite fruit?
Do you know who Trader Sam is?

If you answered yes to most or all of these questions, then we think Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows or Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are probably the perfect fit for you!


Opening in 1971, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort was one of the original Walt Disney World resorts. Once you've visited this tropical paradise, you'll see why it remains one of Disney's most popular resorts. One look around and it's not hard to see why. We got to visit the Resort on a recent Press Trip and fell in love with the beautiful tropical scenery. The Polynesian has recently been re-imagined with special touches like Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, redesigned Lava Pool with Kiki Tiki Splash Play area, Pineapple Lanai serving Dole-Whips, Lilo's Playhouse for the kiddies, and more! Can you say PAR-A-DISE?












Maybe even more exciting is a transformation that has been taking place just steps away.

Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bungalows have just opened up, (their first phase) sending Disney Vacationers (totally just made that up) in a frenzy to book a stay at one of these unique accommodations. Most stunning, in our opinion are the Bora Bora Bungalows. Each of these 20 over-the-water are two bedroom, two bathroom that sleeps eight. They include amenities a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and a private plunge pool on the back deck with views of Magic Kingdom Resort area. In other words you definitely want to check them out!






If you are ready to start planning (and saving) for your next Disney Vacation, why not try creating your own Disney Vacation Account. It's Disney's way of helping you create a budget, make a plan, track your progress, and finally book your trip! (Maybe even to Disney's Polynesian, hmmm???)
