Growing Up Disney Part II OR........

Our Second Son
Our second son Brian was born April 29, 1983, so yes that makes him 30 today! Time does fly and yes I feel old, but every day with both our sons has been an adventure.  From the start both of them picked a Disney character that was there favorite, Paul's was Mickey and Brian's was Donald, maybe that explains his thing with the ducks at Disney?

Tamela Hansen

Disney Gals welcome back one of our favorite Honorary Gals Tamela Hansen. Congratulations to Tamela for undertaking and completing a walk on behalf of Lupus on Saturday! So proud of you for always "believing in the possibilities and living your dreams!"

Hi it's Tamela Hansen from Alabama.  I just am so excited to talk about a subject that is endless.  Making special memories while on rides and watching different attractions!  This is a topic I could talk about forever but I will try to keep it to a minimum!  No promises!

As a child, teenager, young adult, wife, and mother with every stage of life the rides and attractions at Walt Disney World bring about new experiences.  As a child I always look forward to being old enough to ride different rides or maybe BRAVE enough.  Then the day comes when you accomplish all the Mountains at Magic Kingdom, Wow what an achievement!  Then O'my what a difference a shy teenage girl is after she has participated on stage in front of an audience.  That's one way to overcome shyness.  These are experiences that we encounter while at attractions and on rides at Walt Disney World, and they mold us into the people we are today.

Does Splitsville Strike out, or Should You Spare the Time?

Nestled between Disney Quest and the AMC mega-theater complex is the latest addition to Downtown Disney’s West Side, Splitsville.  This 2 story building is home to 30 bowling lanes, drinking, dining and of course, a souvenir shop.

I must confess, I already had it in my mind that I would not like Splitsville. Why pay some high price to bowl when I can do it at home for $1.50 a game? At Splitsville, Monday through Friday before 4pm, lane prices (including shoes) are $15 per person, $20 after 4pm or on Saturday and Sunday. But, my son loves bowling and he wore down my resolve, so in we went.

First we had to get a good look around and take it all in. This was like no bowling alley we had ever seen before. A group of lanes here, a few more lanes over there, and a giant escalator to more lanes upstairs… pretty crazy, but a seemingly perfect fit for Disney.

At noon on a Wednesday, even though it was spring break, it was not very crowded. We checked in at the front desk, gave them shoes sizes, and from then on, we were catered to.  A cast member put our bowling shoes (no laces, all Velcro) into a basket and led us to our lane. Each lane has a wide selection of bowling balls ready for use.  For those unsure of their size, there are 4 balls on display with finger holes drilled in small, medium, large and extra-large.
