Spins The World

Posted by Ashley Rae on March 6, 2012

After an 18 month hiatus, I’ve returned to the Disney blogging world. It took leaving the company, purchasing an annual pass, and playing hours of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom to rekindle that spark.

Besides my new career, I’ve gotten married, graduated from college and had a baby. ( A lot of new changes that can affect time and attention.

What I hope to accomplish now, is to continue with my writing while taking on new challenges, like being a mother, a wife and teaching myself to knit. Some roles are more difficult than others.

A lot of my writing will be moving to my husband and my new blog at but I’m going to backtrack my articles here, while I think of more original content.

I invite you to take a chance with us one more time and venture vicariously or side by side as we explore not only everything Walt Disney World, but everything Central Florida as we pass our time in the best backyard anyone could have.

Wine & Dine Half Marathon…

Posted by Ashley Rae on August 9, 2010

I know it has been over a YEAR since I’ve touched this blog! I’m really hoping that life is going to cool down soon. Since last year, I spent 10 months working in the Norway Pavilion’s Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and since April I have been at the UK’s Rose and Crown. I’ve loved every second of it, but balancing it between a full time schedule at UCF leaves me exhausted at the end of the day.

But… what I really want to talk about is my current Wait List position for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon on October 2, 2010. I’m hoping with the new 1000 positions they opened up for the race that I will quickly get a response (or at least within the next two weeks). Either way, I’m starting my training today! This might be a lame eight weeks of blogging, but I need somewhere to inspire me to stay on track. The desired effect will hopefully lead me to return to the Disney blogging community… Hope you join me on my half marathon adventure!

Addendum: Disney’s Longest Refurbishment

Posted by Ashley Rae on May 27, 2009

The plans have been set and the gang seems to be fixing the kitchen while they part from a game of ping-pong in the rec room.  After a few years, the paint on the ground seems permanent and the basic grocery list has become the norm.  With everything cheese on the menu, the gang has little to want for except a bone for Pluto as they hopefully plow through these last few steps of rejuvenating the room.

Coming Attractions…

Posted by Ashley Rae on May 16, 2009

As you enter the Magic Kingdom underneath the WDW Railroad, there are posters that hang on the walls.  They are of attractions you will see later in the park, but are meant to be viewed as the “Coming Attractions” or “Previews” of a show.
