I have wanted to stay at a bed & breakfast for quite a few years now, but we’ve never really had a chance. (I did research practically every B & B in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area for a trip we took years ago, but we ended up staying at the Fulton Steamboat Inn instead, which luckily for us, turned out to be one of my favorite hotel stays ever.) When Gary got us tickets to a hockey game in Columbus, Ohio I found a B & B located relatively close to the arena in the trendy area called Short North. Here is a photo tour of our first ever stay at a bed & breakfast at 50 Lincoln Short North.
Food is a huge deal to Walt Disney World fans. It’s the only vacation spot, really, where you get up at the crack of dawn 6 months before your trip to book your dining reservations. Food choices range from pretzel carts to burgers and fries to buffets where Winnie the Pooh visits your table to $50 steak dinners. Or if you want to get super fancy, head to Victoria and Albert’s inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for an 8-course meal (with optional wine pairings) that could set you back a few hundred per person.
We haven’t eaten at Victoria and Albert’s yet – we did try to get a chef’s table reservation for our anniversary about 5 years ago to no avail – but we have eaten at some pretty awesome restaurants over the years. Some have become our favorites, some we haven’t gone back to, and some we still want to try.
A year ago this week we were vacationing in Disney World. Easter was on April Fool’s Day, and we arrived a few days later. On that trip we stopped by Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club resorts and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to check out the Easter egg displays. So while all the other Disney blogs can show you this year’s Easter egg display, I’m going in the way back machine to last year’s. 😀
In October we went on a 5-night sailing aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas from Tampa, Florida. You know you want to watch us wander around the ship!
Welcome 2019! It’s a good year to head to Walt Disney World, especially if you want to take advantage of offers Disney has released for the beginning of the year. This is to encourage people to plan their vacations before the late fall opening of Star War’s Galaxy’s Edge – which is going to break records for attendance and you may not want to be in the middle of the madness.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to spend Christmas at Walt Disney World this year, but luckily Disney is in the Christmas spirit all year round. You can buy Christmas ornaments pretty much anywhere on property. Our favorite is the Days of Christmas store in Disney Springs. Let’s take a tour of some of the ornaments you can bring home with you from your next Walt Disney World vacation!
