I live a mere 40 minutes from Disney World. I used to live 5 miles away and could see the fireworks from my apartment every night. There really is something for every age at Disney. I love the shopping at Disney Springs. My daughters are 4 and 6 years old, and they love the magic of Disney at the theme parks. They love all the rides that I did as a child.
These are great ideas. I love Disney! So many fun things to do!
These are fun ideas! Our daughter got a make a wish to go to Disney, but we have to wait six years to go with the foundation that’s funding it. Our kids will be teens when that happens, so I’ll have to bookmark this to remember!
