Beyond the Parks- La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil

Deep in the heart of Downtown Disney lies an incredible show where the two worlds of fantasy and reality collide. In each performance, it thrills fans with its daring feats and takes spectators on a whimsical journey into a world that is exciting, daring and familiar all at the same time. This show is La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.

ShellieMay, the Other Disney Bear


We may be in the minority, but we're big fans of Duffy, the Disney Bear.  You may have seen him at Epcot, or caught his bedtime story on the Walt Disney World resort TV,  but did you know that Duffy has a friend named ShellieMay?

Foodie Friday - Raglan Road Brunch

Back in March, James and I got to have an adults only trip to Walt Disney World. Once we got over the guilt of leaving our little prince and princess at home, we were able to enjoy some brand new Disney experiences. It was nice to have the opportunity to go to new restaurants and do things that we don't normally get to do when we have the kids in tow. 



One of the new places we got to try on that trip was Raglan Road. During the week, this Irish pub-style restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. But did you know that on Sundays, they host the Rollicking Raglan Brunch? It sounded so appealing, we decided to give it a try.

13.1 Things I Learned Running My First runDisney Half Marathon


Lisa and I are heading down to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and runDisney's Wine & Dine Half Marathon this November.  This is only our second runDisney event.  Lisa completed a runDisney 5k in January and I managed to finish the Half Marathon despite having two knee surgeries last year.

Here are 13.1 things (one for every mile) that I learned running my first Half Marathon that I hope to apply to our upcoming Wine & Dine race.
