Planning a vacation can be fun, but waiting is the hardest part! Before our last Disney trip, my family kept the excitement up by having Disney Days. Once a week, we chose a Disney movie to watch and I planned the whole day around that movie. I created a menu, chose a local attraction to visit that is in someway related, and in the evening we watched the movie.

I decided to share these ideas in the hope that they may be helpful to others.

I try to utilize the multiple special events that occur around Austin year-round as well as taking advantage of free attractions when possible. Creating Disney days does not have to be expensive and is a great way to have special family time.
