Our Winter Snow Trip Was (Barely) Successful

We were so ready for our winter snow trip. We’d bought and borrowed as many winter outfits as we could, secured a capable and comfortable 4WD vehicle (a 2017 Pathfinder, courtesy of Nissan – look for a review soon!), and quickly pounced on four affordable plane tickets during one late-night search. My wife and I had promised our two Florida-born-and-bred sons they’d see snow this winter, and we were going to deliver. Our plan was to stay with friends on top of a white-capped mountain in western Maryland. During the week leading up to our departure, our collective excitement...

I thought it might be fun to put together a biased, totally subjective list of the Walt Disney World nighttime shows. I got to preview Rivers of Light at #DisneySMMC so I’ve now seen all of them and can finally put this list...
