Disney’s Magical Express Updates Video to DME TV

| December 30, 2013 | 17 Replies

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 [...]

Can you really visit the UK in the baking sunshine [...]

Epcot’s Behind the Seeds Tour in Fall and Spring

| November 3, 2013 | 5 Replies

For reasons that just flatly escape me, my “must do” attraction at Epcot is the Living with the Land boat ride.
