Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: June 26, 2014

by on June 26, 2014

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World! This week we’re starting somewhere a little unconventional, an overpass leaving Disney property! This sunset was too amazing not to share, and this is truly how it looked. I just snapped the photo out my car window with a typical point and shoot camera. No editing wizardry here! Any week that starts like this has to be a good one, right?

Next, let’s head to Animal Kingdom for the bulk of our updates this week. First up is the new Macaw Fly Over. I didn’t go into this expecting a lot, but we totally loved the show. I’d go out of my way to see it. While it’s over quickly, it’s amazing to see all of those lovely birds flying together. I know my video can’t do it justice, but if you’ve never clicked on one of my videos this is the one to start with! Make sure you check this out on your next visit.

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: June 19, 2014

by on June 19, 2014

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the best week ever! This week we’re starting with the 4th annual Car Masters Weekend at Downtown Disney. If you can believe it, I’d never attended this event before last year. Even then, we only caught it by accident during the last few hours. Since then, my hubby hasn’t stopped talking about it. This year we were there bright and early, an hour before the event officially opened. Doing so allowed me to get some photos without tons of people in the frame, but don’t be fooled, it was pretty busy even this early!

The event featured over 100 cars. My favorite were the classic vehicles, but there were lots of modern muscles cars featured, too. Many had signs declaring they weren’t street legal! That’s a little too fast for me, but it was fun to look. And looking was pretty much all you could do, as many cars had big signs demanding that you not touch the cars. I can understand why, but there were many disappointed kids who wanted to sit in the cars desperately! Just be aware if you’re taking your little one that very few cars are kid friendly. There were a few cars with signs declaring they were kid-friendly, and I think Disney should put them in a section together to make it easier for parents.

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: June 12, 2014

Hi, Everyone! I’m very happy to announce this new weekly article bringing you the best of Disney and what to expect in the week ahead. Since this is new, please let me know what you like, what you don’t, and what you’d like to see added. We’re always really happy to hear your feedback. Now, let’s get started with a look at the best week ever!

The Star Wars Weekends event continues to be popular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but last weekend wasn’t as crowded as expected. I’ve heard rumors that this was because cast member passes were blacked out. In any case, it was nice to see the streets not quite so packed!
