Is Your Child Ready for Disney?

Because I am a huge Disney geek, I participate in tons of Disney groups on social media. Often people will ask, "what is the right age to take my child to Disney?" Many people are expecting the "perfect Disney age" as an answer, but, guess what? There is no perfect age! And to be very clear, the decision is less about the kid's age and more about the parent's expectations. We took our daughter to Disneyland when she was 3 1/2. Your child's perfect age may be younger or older. Below are some questions to ask yourself when trying to determine

Yellowstone Lodging

Yellowstone National Park is the oldest and, in my opinion, the best national park within the continental United States. The stunning scenery is breathtaking, the wildlife are massive and abundant, and the geological history is simply fascinating. The best way to maximize your time is to book a room within Yellowstone National Park. Keep in mind, in park lodging options are highly desirable during the summer months. In fact, these lodgings are so popular that if you would like to stay next summer, I recommend you make reservations NOW as they are already booking for 2018 and even 2019. Here

Uncorked Kitchen Review

We are always looking for new and unique experiences to do as a family and recently, we discovered Uncorked Kitchen. Uncorked Kitchen is located in Centennial, Colorado, near the Park Meadows mall area. The   atmosphere,  food, cooking classes and wine experiences makes this venue  a memorable experience without the long drive to downtown Denver. They have something for everyone and their calendar is filled with fantastic events! Thank You Uncorked KitchenFor starters, I’d like to thank Uncorked Kitchen for hosting me at this cooking class. They have a variety of classes available; I selected the “A Taste of Uncorked –

Westin Denver International Airport

The new Westin Denver International Airport is a beautiful hotel, conveniently attached to the airport. The hotel's location makes it ideal for travelers stranded at the airport, or those with a very early morning flight, like us! For our trip to Cabo, Mexico, we had an early morning flight. Meaning we all had to be up and ready to go before 4:00 AM. Which is UGH early, in my opinion!! Since we had heard really great things about the Westin at Denver International Airport, we decided to check into a pre-night stay. The rates were high, but we combined our

Fairy Tale Tea Party

On this cold and snowy Colorado Sunday, we hosted a family Fairy Tale Tea Party and it couldn't have been cuter {or more fun}!  As everyone knows, the Travel + Family crew are huge Disney fans, so when the good people at Adagio Teas sent us the Fairy Tale tea collection to test out, we just knew we had to use these teas for a fun a tea party! Fairy Tale Tea Collection First of all, let's talk about these adorably themed fairy tale teas. I am a sucker for themes. I especially love cleverly themed items and I think

Dining at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom

Dining reservations for the parks at Walt Disney World open 180 days in advance of your visit. If you miss this window, you will be limited on options during the timeslots you want. To give you a point of reference, we made reservations for the Liberty Tree Tavern approximately 170 days in advance. This venue was the only restaurant available between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. The Liberty Tree Tavern is in the heart of Liberty Square within Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. It boasts 18th century décor and fashion; and of course, it has amazingly friendly hosts and wait-staff. The

Castlewood Canyon State Park

Castlewood Canyon State Park is our favorite place to hike. This Colorado State Park is located approximately 35 miles South of Denver. My husband and I fell in love with this state park nearly 15 years ago and have hiked it over a dozen times. There are 15 different trails to explore at the canyon – most are very short, with the longest being just over 2 miles. We love the beautiful terrain of the canyon, hiking next to Cherry Creek, and the easy, well-marked trails that loop around. My inner-geek goddess also loves the geological and historic aspects of

Why I LOVE Google Photos

Not many apps are true life-changers for me, but Google Photos has been the exception. It's given me peace of mind, enhanced photos, and easy sharing capabilities. Let me dive into all the reasons why this tool is a must for families who love their photos! Photo Storage & Organization I'm a freak about backing up my pictures! A freak. I typically keep them in three different locations - my phone, my computer, and an external hard drive. But, I still would wake up in a cold sweat if I didn't perform my normal routine back-up.

On the Disney Dream, you can book adult-only food experiences at Palo and/or Remy. Both of these dining venues come at an extra cost, but are fantastic escapes from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship and will please all taste buds. If you are a true foodie or enjoy trying new plates, then this is the place for you! Below is our experience having brunch at Palo while on the Disney Cruise Line's Disney Dream. Booking the Palo Brunch I would recommend booking a brunch at Palo for a sea day. This Champagne brunch was an additional $30.00
