Florida Homeschool Family Fun!

Disney 411

My husband and I love Disney and are blessed to be able to share it with our kids. We had seasonal passes that were given to us by my parents as their retirement gift to us in 2007. We took a year off and we now have renewed them again. 

If you plan to visit Disney, this page will help you find resources and lots of ways to enjoy the parks and save money while having fun. Since we are a homeschool family alot of what we have to share showa how to make your visit the World educational.

I have been busy homeschooling so I have not updated my blog since for a year but, I hope to start again soon. We’ve had a lot of fun at Disney since my last post in December 2009. Meanwhile you can subscribe to this blog and you will be updated when I add a new post.

I love homeschooling in Florida! Have a Magical Homeschool Day!

“Crowded classrooms and half-day sessions are a tragic waste of our greatest natural resource —
the minds of our children.” Walt Disney

Here are some resources where you can find homeschool friendly materials for your trip to Disney:

Disney Music

In between visits or while planning a trip listening to Disney movie soundtraks and theme park music gets the pixie dust flowing!
