Some Interesting Facts About Mission: SPACE

Mission:SPACE is one of my favourite attractions at Disney. It is the one we always make a beeline for whenever we visit that fantastic park, Epcot. The first time we went on it I have to admit that we were a bit wary, as there were warning notices d...

Take a Spin on a “Segway” at Epcot

Mama Melroses - Hollywood Studios

We decided, long before our holiday, to book the Fantasmic package and dine at Mama Melrose’s . We booked some months in advance direct with Disney. I believe this can be booked up to 180 days in advance. On the advice of friends we booked an...

DINOSAUR AT ANIMAL KINGDOM

I have to say that the Dinosaur ride is my all time favourite, and it is the one we make a beeline for as soon as we arrive at Animal Kingdom. The walk up to the Dinosaur Institute is quite impressive, with huge statues of dinosaurs on each side of t...
