This day was pretty epic. In fact, it was out of this world. Day 11 had a definite Star Wars theme and we loved it. From getting the most amazing hug from Chewbacca to BB-8 cupcakes, we were embracing all of the new Star Wars themeing at Hollywood Studios.

We stayed here from opening right until close and there was still plenty more to do. Everyone saying that this is a half-day park definitely hasn’t tried to watch all the shows and meet the characters. We were really surprised at how much there is to do here.

If you like improv and comedy, this is definitely the vlog for you because we saw the Citizens of Hollywood quite a few times through the day. We love their brand of humor so made sure we got to see a few of their shows. They’re truly hilarious.

Make sure you take a look at my top tips for Hollywood Studios below after watching the video!

This week’s vlog might look like we’re slacking a bit. It appears that we casually go to ‘Ohana for an incredible evening meal, followed by an evening at Epcot. But what did we do for the rest of the day? Sleep?

In fact, a lot of our day did not get captured in the vlog. We started off at Typhoon Lagoon, going on all the slides and enjoying the wave pool for a few hours. I didn’t want to risk having my camera stolen from a locker or swallowed up in the wave pool, so I took the morning off vlogging.

Have a watch of this week’s vlog, then read on for all my tips, tricks and to hear about Typhoon Lagoon.

Whenever someone asks about my love of Disney World, I reply that I practically grew up in central Florida, visiting every few years since the age of three. In between these magical trips, I had a fair few memorable trips to other parts of the world. While I may no longer be a fan of the traditional beach holiday, I used to love to spend the day making mischief on a beach somewhere. Running up and down, begging my dad to dig a big hole in the sand for no reason, and jumping in and out of an inflatable tyre were all staples of my childhood.

In October, I made more memories to last a lifetime in Disney World with my sister. Also that month, Harry at Instant Print asked me to write a blog post about my postcard-perfect memories of my travels. They also send this bundle of goodies, which came in very useful in Florida.

Without further ado, here are my snapshots of my favourite travel memories so far.

The 60-day countdown is quite an important one for anyone waiting for their Disney holiday to come along. At 180 days it’s time to book dining reservations, and the two-month mark is the turn of Fastpasses for rides for anyone staying in a Disney hotel. Everyone else has to wait another 30 days when the reservations are available to anyone with a valid park ticket, so it’s a great chance to beat the crowds and secure queue jumps for your favourite rides.

Every park ticket entitles the holder to three queue jumps – or Fastpasses – per day. If you want to find out more about what they are and which rides you should pick, this post explains nearly everything.

While I knew all about the theory, I wasn’t sure what it would be like to actually book them. Our 60-day mark soon came around and I had to hope everything would fall into place. If you’re in the same position as I was, then this should help you feel ready to book all those crucial queue jumps.
