Yummy...Yummy Disney Food

So we finally arrived at Animal Kingdom - Kidani Village and we are all starving. Kidani village does not have a quick service there but it is a short ride over the Animal Kingdom Lodge where they have Mara.

There are all kinds of food options at the quick service location. I think we all tried something different. I will say that this location got very crowded at times during our trip.

Next we are off to Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends. My family and I have attended this special event twice before so we knew the girls would love it. It is a special even that is only on select weekends in May and June.

One of the first rides we did is one that recently closed for good so I am so happy that the girls got to experience it. It was the Backlot Tour and our daughter got to participate in the movie making.

One of the great things about Star Wars Weekends is that there are lots of characters walking around that will interact with you.

We ride some more and at some point we are on Toy Story Mania because we actually got stuck and they had to manually come let us out.

The girls have a snack and we eventually call it a day.

When end our night by eating at Mara again and relaxing in the room.

Up next is Epcot.....

Thanks for stopping by!!

Disney/Universal Senior Trip

We started planning this Senior trip to Disney World years ago with two of my daughter's friends. It evolved into a longer trip to include Universal in order to see the Harry Potter world. We left the Saturday after their graduation for the long drive to Disney.

Finally we see the wonderful sign!!!

We planned to stay at Animal Kingdom's Kidani Village in a one bedroom so we have plenty of space and 2 bathrooms. It was a wonderful room.

Up next first Disney meal.......

Ran Away....Forgotten....Where have I been??

WOW!! I can't believe that it has been over a year since I have updated my blog. If I have anyone even checking in anymore, I am so sorry. I don't even have an excuse except life just got in the way. 
Well, 2014 has brought in some changes in our life. Our daughter completed her senior year in high school. We took her and two of her friends to Disney to celebrate. Here are some pictures to show some of the highlights of that senior year.

We had a lot senior year and I can't believe it is over. We have moved her on to college this fall and she is doing great. I am still working on my weight loss and I struggled for months. I am now following a lower carb diet to control my diabetes (type 2). I have recently restarted on this back at the beginning of September. My numbers were out of control. More on that to follow but first let's take a look at our May 2014 trip to Disney and Universal.
Stay tuned....and thanks for dropping by.
