Visiting Disney World as a Mom
As our two boys outgrew toddlerhood, Jeff and I began to consider taking them on their first Disney vacation. Our decision was made after learning that children under the age of three don’t require a ticket so we planned the trip as Jasper was still three months shy of his third birthday in February of 2013.
Over two years later, my mom and I took the boys on their second trip in November 2015 and it was after this trip that I really caught the Disney bug again and decided that an annual trip should be made for as long as possible.
The boys’ third Disney vacation is currently being planned for late January. It’s during this time of year, when the boys are tracked out of school for several weeks in late January and early February while Disney World prices are cheapest, crowd levels are lowest, weather is the coolest that we hope to make Disney vacations an annual tradition.

A new blog post will be published every Monday in the Magical Mondays series. Topics will include reviewing current and past trips, planning tips and travel plans, recommended dining and attractions, and anything else Disney World!
Walt Disney World is my happy place, a place where I truly feel at home the moment I step on the property. At Disney World, I’m transported to a place where life’s problems disappear and for several days, I’m in a happy bubble of magic and fun. I’m thrilled to be sharing my tips and memories, and making Disney World part of my weekly blogging plans. I hope you’ll join me!
