Disney Magic and Kids - Dining Experiences with Kids
Natalie is the budgeting guru of Meet the Magic, a site designed to help people find the best ways to save money for and on their trip to any Disney destination. She puts her degree to good use with "Strategies for Paying for Disney", and shares some of her fun Disney knowledge and advice. At Meet the Magic you can also find information on other Diseny sites, travel deals, planning your vacation, and contests. She frequently visits Walt Disney World with her son and enjoys meeting other Disney fans when touring the parks. Natalie contributes to several Disney websites and co-hosts Castaway Midday, a tropical Disney show on Sorcerer Radio with Kristen.
Since Natalie always travels with her young son, she contributes "Disney Magic and Kids". This is where she talks about dining with her son, experiences that he enjoys, and shares advice for those who are looking to find the perfect restaurant for a family with kids.
After many visits to Walt Disney World, her favorite dining experience is the Hoop-Dee Doo Musical Revue, a dinner show at Ft. Wilderness. Reminding her of days spent at summer camp, the sounds of the dinner bell ringing takes her back to that experience. Inside Pioneer Hall, her family was seated behind the piano player who played saloon-style songs before the start of the show. Starting off with corn bread and salads before bringing out ribs, chicken and cowboy beans, filled up her family before ever receiving the main course. Even stuffed they found room for a second helping of the ribs and cowboy beans. The show was so hilarious that they lost track of how much time had gone by. After finishing up their strawberry shortcake they spent a few minutes enjoying the Pioneer Hall Player before heading out the door stuffed. Since this experience, she's enjoyed the dining experience two more times and it remains one of her favorite things to do at Walt Disney World.
