These are just a few unique stories that I think are definitely worth your time and money.   Cake Decorating Experience...

Amazing Activities for Tweens on Disney Cruise Lines

While often viewed as the premiere ships for parents of young children, Disney Cruise Lines also caters to the desires of older kids. Tweens, in particular, benefit from the diverse array of areas and activities on the ship designed just for them. Being a transitional age group (10-12), the Disney ships offer the security of supervised areas alongside adult-free zones where kids can test their budding social skills. As my daughter enters the tween years, her recent experience on the Disney Dream was exciting and let her choose which activities had appeal.   A Note on Tweens and Social...

Disneyland Paris Day Trip

Before moving to South Florida we lived in Paris, France for 2.5 years and made sure we fit in a Disneyland Paris day trip. It’s easy enough to get to Disneyland from Paris for a day trip as long as you plan ahead. Because we had a car, we drove, but another (and possibly better) option is to go by train. There are plenty of regular services from Paris to Disneyland, which are likely to be more reliable than traffic in & around Paris.
