I am a Latina wife, mother of a 5 year old precious little girl, and a long time Disney enthusiast. We are a Disney Family and watch our Disney movie collection often. It is a great joy to see my daughter lost in the magic and wonder of those stories. Nothing brings a smile to my heart more than watching her sing a long with the characters, or when she talks to her cousins and tells them, "You have to believe in the magic, you just HAVE to believe!" In the last few years our family has done quite a few Disney related activities. Whether visiting the park for the first time as a family in Orlando or enjoying a cruise on the Disney Fantasy we never get tired and we are always impressed. I enjoy staying up to date with anything Disney related from the Disney Parks to movies, shows and products. My current obsession is Vinylmations. When not writing here, I talk about Disney, motherhood, and more on my blog.

Boy Meets World Sequel Gets Green Light

Kids of the 90s rejoice, the powers that be at Disney have heard our pleas. It has been confirmed that Disney has officially ordered a pilot for a Boy Meets World sequel, the series is set to be called Girl Meets World.

News of the possible series spread like wildfire through the web after the initial announcement was made late last year. Who knew that “liking” all those Facebook petition pages to bring BMW back would actually work. I say this jokingly, but someone out there was listening because it’s happening.

We are not the only ones excited to see what has been going on with Cory and Topanga after all these years. Danielle Fishel (Topanga) and Ben Savage (Cory Matthews) have both gone on their different social media sites to confirm that they have signed up to be on the show and to express their happiness over the news.

When we last left Cory and Topanga we saw them married, finished with school and off to New York to explore new opportunities. Girl Meets World will pick up following the life of Cory and Topanga’s 13 year old daughter Riley (character yet to be cast).Read More »Boy Meets World Sequel Gets Green Light

Restaurant Review: T-REX at Downtown Disney

While in Downtown Disney Orlando this past summer we could not resist the urge to pay a visit to the T-REX Restaurant and Shop. As we walked in we were greeted by the coolness in the air which we welcomed since it was so very hot outside. The first thing we noticed was this enormous and almost life like T-Rex towering over us. To the right a place to shop for all your Prehistoric needs and to the left was the restaurant a.k.a archaeological dig site filled with small, large and extra large animatronic and audio-animatronic creatures.

We were seated right away and attended to almost instantly. Trying to take in our surroundings time seemed to just escape us. We looked over the menus and although there were plenty of choices I was not overwhelmed by them. There is something in the menu for everybody from Spare ribs, Chicken and Pasta to Burgers and Seafood. For the future little paleontologist in your group there is a kids menu of course, it includes various choices like Pizza, Pasta, Sliders, Popcorn shrimp and even Dinosaur shaped chicken.Read More »Restaurant Review: T-REX at Downtown Disney

A Visit to Splitsville for Dinner

Editor: Please welcome new guest author Paula Garcia!

My husband, 5 year old daughter and I recently visited Orlando. We arrived on New Year’s day settled in to our hotel. It was a nice night out and we were starving so we decided to take a walk to Downtown Disney and find a restaurant there. There were so many people it was difficult to walk around much less find a table at any of the restaurants.

We didn’t give up and kept walking all the way down to about the end of Downtown. Just when we were about to walk back to our hotel my husband walked into Splitsville Lanes and to our surprise they had open tables with no wait.

Although there were many people inside, I didn’t get an over crowded, claustrophobic feeling. We were greeted by a young lady and taken up the escalator to our table. We sat down and were handed our menus. My daughter received her own kid’s menu and some crayons. As a mom I really appreciate this. It took a little while before our order was taken. Many people were being seated in our area at the same time. Our server was right on top of it he was very attentive, fast, kind and apologetic about the delay.Read More »A Visit to Splitsville for Dinner
