Two Travel Bloggers Are Taking On A Crazy Disney World Challenge To Raise Money For Charity

Sharon and I have done some crazy Disney things. I once ran from park to park to park to park on Fourth of July to get a limited edition pin from each location, back when we still did the pin thing. We’ve waited outside the Animal Kingdom entry plaza in our car at 3AM to be there for the grand opening. If we had passes at the time, I would have tried to stay for the day when Magic Kingdom was open for 24 hours straight, Speaking of 24 hours, for my first trip to Disneyland, I flew from NYC to LA on a 6AM flight (waking up at 4AM) and went straight to the park for the day, staying until the the 1AM closing. That was 24 hours straight being awake with the time change. “What’s jet lag?” I asked at the time?

However, the task that Ed from Pizza in Motion and Summer (Mommy Points) from TPG Family are attempting to complete is simply insane. The only thing keeping me from saying they’re crazy is that they’re using the challenge to raise money for one of the most wonderful charities in Central Florida.

Bicoastal Disney Openings, Visiting Liverpool With A Beatle, A New Way To Search for Flights & More

And here it is, Sunday again. Hope y’all have had a good week! Here are some travel articles we’ve recently seen that we think you may enjoy.

  • Nick at Frequent Miler wrote about a new search function on one of my favorite websites, Google Flights. You’re now able to search for airfares that allow you to put a carry on bag in the overhead bin. So it’ll eliminate basic economy fares that don’t allow bin access and add the bag charge to flights that charge extra for the privilege (like Spirit and Frontier).
  • Caroline from Frugal Travel Guy wrote about the best places to stay in Cuba on points and miles. The hotels available for points redemption are slim if you are an American who can even visit under the current travel restrictions. Personally, I’d strongly suggest staying at a casa particular instead of a chain resort. You can go to any island in the Caribbean and stay at a resort. If you’re going to Cuba, spend some time with the people. You’ll never forget it.
