Going To WDW? This Is THE Stroller For The Little Princess In Your Life (And Now It’s Disney Park Size Compliant!)

Being a princess has been a part of many little girls’ imaginations, probably since the concept of princesses began, forever ago. Disney has tapped into that love with a plethora of prince and princess items, from clothing to books to movies to toys to everything in between. About the only thing Disney doesn’t offer is a stroller fit for a princess (or prince!) at its parks.

Fortunately, someone else has picked up the slack…

“Disney Snubs History & Art”: When They Altered An Historic Magic Kingdom Icon

Seth Kubersky, Arts Journalist of the Orlando Weekly, posted a link to an article regarding Disney’s “snub to history and art” by altering an attraction that, not only has been a staple at Walt Disney World since its opening day in 1971, but is over 100 years old and has an historic past in its own right, including being the only WDW attraction Walt Disney saw before his death in 1966. Written by the person who worked on refurbishing the attraction in the mid-1990s to early 2000s, you can read the article if you click on

Disney’s 2019 DVC Moonlight Magic Event at WDW’s Magic Kingdom (Compared to 2017 & 2018)

One of multiple “arms” of the Walt Disney Company is that of Disney Vacation Club (DVC). It’s essentially a time share wherein people buy points that they can use to stay at Disney properties at what would be a lesser rate than if one paid cash.

DVC membership can potentially cost much, much less when one purchases points on the secondary market (as opposed to buying them directly from Disney). So to make buying DVC points from Disney have a higher perceived value, one thing they’ve been doing are these member-only, after-dark events called “Moonlight Magic” at the various Disney theme parks. Running since 2016, they’re a perk that’s only open to those who’ve purchased points directly from Disney and not from the secondary market.

Joe’s been a DVC member since its inception in the early 1990s (the running joke was that I married him for his DVC points and now for his hotel points LOL) and because we live so close to WDW, we’ve been able to attend several Moonlight Magic events, including the ones at Magic Kingdom (MK) in 2017, 2018 and now 2019. So it’s been interesting to see how the events there have evolved.

Going To WDW? This Is THE Stroller For The Little Star Wars Geek In Your Life

Being a Jedi has been a part of many boys’ and girls’ imaginations ever since the first time they saw the scrolling words, “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” Disney has tapped into that love by purchasing the Star Wars brand from Lucasfilms in 2012, which was followed by a plethora of Star Wars items, from clothing to books to movies to toys to everything in between. About the only thing Disney doesn’t offer is a stroller fit for a Padawan at its parks.

Fortunately, someone else has picked up the slack…
