5 Inspired Ways to Host a Disney BBQ
Suntan lines and sunshine. Longer days and paid time off. Fresh fruit and lazy afternoons. Vacations to dream places… and the smell of a BBQ. There are so many feelings the sweet summertime evokes, especially when families and friends have more time (and interest) in joining together. Thanks to the weather and an easier few months at the office, this season invites gatherings and connection, all while making memories under good ‘ole fashioned vitamin D. What’s better than tying together two things you love—the warmest time of year and Disney? If you can make it down to Florida for the annual celebration mega-fans trek to, you can also recreate some of the warm magic in your own home.
After speaking with one of our friends at MickeyTravels, get excited with these fun—and flavorful!—ideas to really make this summer the best of ‘em all:
