Myrtle Waves Water Park in Myrtle Beach, SC

Myrtle Waves Water Park in Myrtle Beach, SC

MyrtleWavesI recently had the opportunity to visit Myrtle Waves Water Park, located in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Myrtle Waves has been in the same location for many years.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party: To Attend or Not to Attend…That is the Question By Katy Melcher

mnsshp-map1As summer begins to wind down, I start to think about…HALLOWEEN! It may sound crazy and a bit premature (kind of like putting up a Christmas tree in October), but for my family and many others, Halloween begins in September with Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!  Our annual September get-away always includes a night with Mickey and his ghoulish friends celebrating Halloween at Magic Kingdom®

Tipping at Walt Disney World by Corey Applegate

My very first job was working in fast food, and I hated almost every minute of it.  People can be downright rude, and it makes you wonder why you’re still standing there for minimum wage while some stranger is screaming at you about ketchup.  That being said, today, I’d like to talk about tipping at Walt Disney World.  (I know, weird segue, right?)
