The Dream of Retiring to Central Florida

The Dream of Retiring to Central Florida

I absolutely love Disney’s Magical Express (DME). The service is complimentary to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and provides transportation from Orlando International Airport to your resort. Guests also have the option of tagging their luggage before leaving home and “magically” finding it in their rooms once in Florida. This saves [...]

I am thinking about canceling my trip to Walt Disney World because I am so worried that FastPass+ and MagicBands will ruin it. I don’t even like wearing something on my wrist! Disney MagicBands are too confusing. They make a vacation hard. They are rationing out how many rides you can go on now in [...]
