Wheelchair Accessible Cabana on Castaway Cay

Wheelchair Accessible Cabana on Castaway Cay

Staying at a Cabana on Castaway Cay was something I put on my Disney bucket list right after our first Disney Cruise. Renting one can be a difficult endeavor. Unless you are staying concierge level or are a Platinum Castaway Club Member it’s very difficult to rent one in advance. You can be added to a wait list once you board but it’s rare that someone actually cancels.

We traveled with friends on our last cruise and as luck would have it they decided to stay concierge level. They were able to book the cabana in advance and that also meant that we got to split the cost with them. Win win! Since Disney wants to make sure the wheelchair cabana is used by someone that needs it we just had to give them our reservation number so Disney could verify the details.

Lunch Tips for Be Our Guest Restaurant

Be Our Guest Restaurant

Update! You can now make lunch reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant. I think it’s a great change. You’ll no longer have to wait in a long line wasting your vacation time or try to get a FastPass if you were a Disney Resort guest. (Which is good news for those staying off property.) Reservations will still be difficult to get since the restaurant is still very popular but there is a lot less guess work.

The last time we had lunch at Be Our Guest the line to get in went from the bridge at the restaurant all the way town to Gaston’s Tavern. If you haven’t been to New Fantasyland, that is a pretty long line. These tips were initially made to help you get into the restaurant but most of them still apply even with the new reservation system and the information has been updated to help you make the most of your reservation.

Instagram + Android | Apps for Photo Editing

Instagram + Android | Apps for Photo Editing

If you are an instagram addict (like me!) but have Android phone it can be hard to find recommendations for apps to edit your photos. When I first downloaded the it I found so many apps, tutorials, and great classes for iPhone users but not a lot of information for Android users. After some trial and error I discovered a few apps that I really loved and I was able to make some really cool edits using my Samsung Galaxy. Here are a few of my favorites.

Accessible Disney | Atlanta Braves Spring Training at Champion Stadium

Champion Stadium is really nice and we had an awesome time. Here is a little info about the wheelchair accessibility of the stadium.

Disney Dream: Dinner at Remy

Welcome to the next stop on Magical Blogorail Green . Today we are discussing the most romantic Disney restaurants. With out a doubt, Remy has to be on that list. We visited for the first time on our most recent Disney Cruise and it has become our all time favorite Disney dining experience. The food, the atmosphere, the Cast Members, everything was perfect.

The Atmosphere

Remy | Disney Dream

Remy is located on Deck 12 on the Disney Dream and is an adults only dining experience. We were greeted by the maître d’ when we arrived and he showed us to our table. When he learned that this was our first visit he took the time to explain the theme of the restaurant and some of the details.

One of my all time favorite attractions is Spaceship Earth. I loved it as a kid and I appreciate it even more as an adult. It is one of the attractions at Walt Disney World that has an alternate entrance for wheelchair users and it also has an ADA ride vehicle.

Accessible Room at Disney’s Beach Club Resort

Disney's Beach Club Resort

We had our first stay at Disney’s Beach Club Resort towards the end of 2014. It wasn’t a long stay but it was long enough to fall in love with the smell of the lobby and the location of the resort.

Our room was wheelchair accessible with a roll in shower and very similar to our room at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. There were two queen beds with space enough between the two that I could have used either and there were. Again they were a little higher than some of the beds in other Disney accessible rooms but I was able to get in and out on my own.
