Guide to Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts

With the announcement of Epcot’s newest festival came quite a bit of chatter. While some people grumbled that Epcot would be in a constant state of hosting festivals, others embraced it. Personally, we loved the idea as we found it to be pretty consistent with Walt’s original vision of a permanent World’s Fair at Epcot and were pretty excited to see what this festival would bring. We had the privilege to make it out to Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts during the second weekend it was open. Here’s our experience and what you can expect! (more…)

The Path Less Traveled: Walking from Hollywood Studios to Epcot at Walt Disney World

The Path Less Traveled: Walking from Hollywood Studios to Epcot at Walt Disney World

Did you know that there is a walking path from Hollywood Studios to Epcot in Walt Disney World? While I’m always surprised that even the most seasoned WDW-goers aren’t aware of this pathway that can take you from one park to the other, it really should come as no surprise as it is not advertised and almost slightly hidden.
