Animal Kingdom and Flight of Passage

Animal Kingdom opened a few years before my Disney Drought. I was never really interested in it. Mainly because I grew up in Miami where we have a world-class zoo.

Doesn’t Every Girl Want to Get Married? Nope!

Not every girl has her dream wedding planned. Not every girl even cares about the possibility of getting married. Some of us are more interested in what we’re going to be when we grow up.
