Thoughts on Live Action Beauty and the Beast

I will be the first to admit that I was skeptical of the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast (BATB).

Disney Fantasy Day 7: Castaway Cay 5K Recap & Relaxation

Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, is probably one of my favorite places on the planet. The whole thing is absolutely gorgeous. The water is crystal clear and calm, the sand is perfectly white, and they have several beaches for different age groups, including an adults only one.

But before I get to the relaxation, I have to recap our experience with the Castaway Cay 5K. Continue reading “Disney Fantasy Day 7: Castaway Cay 5K Recap & Relaxation”
