I have always been part of a family of teachers; therefore, my trips to Walt Disney World happen during school breaks, which typically fall during school breaks for many around the country. This means I tend to visit during some of the most crowded times of the year; however, I rarely wait more than 30 minutes for any ride and thoroughly enjoy my days at Walt Disney World (and keep returning again and again and again). I hope to share some tips with you that will help you maximize your days at Walt Disney World if you happen to visit during peak seasons.
Stay on property
There are so many benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World resort, but there is one that helps during peak seasons: transportation. While some say that Disney transportation can take a lot of time, I would argue that it saves a lot of time. Magic Kingdom is the best example of how Disney transportation can help maximize your time. Those who drive to Magic Kingdom will park at the...

Have you ever ridden a classic attraction and wondered what it would be like to sit inside the ride and enjoy a meal? Disneyland offers this opportunity inside Pirates of the Caribbean with a restaurant called Blue Bayou. You will feel as though you stepped foot into Louisiana of past years. You walk through the facade of a beautiful plantation home to the “outdoor” seating area overlooking a canal. Here, you will hear the sounds of bullfrogs, see fireflies, and enjoy watching guests pass by on their way into a pirate lair. If you listen closely, you will hear the screams of these same guests as they make their way down two drops on Pirates of the Caribbean.
The menu is on the small side, but there should be something for everyone: steak, chicken, fish, pasta, and several side dishes that are quite tasty. I made my first trip to Disneyland in 2017. Even though we only had two days to visit, we ate at Blue Bayou both days knowing...

I often get asked, after so many trips to Walt Disney World, if I get tired of repeating activities like rides, shows, and dining experiences. First, I would say that there is SO much to do at WDW and it is ever-changing, so there is always something new to experience. Then I would follow that up with a resounding “of course I don’t get tired of them!”
Dining is such a huge part of a Disney trip, and my all-time favorite restaurant is Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Hollywood Studios. This is, without a doubt, the most frequently visited table-service location for my family through the years.
My favorite part of any meal is dessert, duh, and Sci-Fi makes a dessert that is “out of this world” good! Let me introduce you to the warm glazed doughnut, a house-made warm cronut-like doughnut topped with warm cinnamon apples, vanilla ice cream, and candy crisps. It may sound like a sugar overload, and let’s face it, it is! It’s a large dessert...
