Win a Marvel Comics Carry-On Spinner Luggage ($180 value)

Holidays are coming up and with that comes a lot of travel. I recently shared my favorite new Marvel Luggage with you thanks to the "super" cool folks over at Irv's Luggage. Well, now it's your turn! I'm absolutely loving my Captain America 26" Spinner and can't wait to bring it with me to Philadelphia this month for a weekend vacation. Captain America in the City of Brotherly Love? Works for me! Anyways, like I said, the fantastic folks at Irv's Luggage want to share some Marvel-ous luggage with you as well. That's why they're offering up an awesome Marvel Comics 21" Carry-On Spinner as a prize! How cool is that thing? Sadly ...

My Marvel Luggage Means I Travel in Super Style

One of my many superpowers is my ability to pack. Whether it's to move an entire house or get the whole family ready for a big Disney World vacation, I have this uncanny ability to treat clothes like Tetris blocks and magically fit them all in smoothly. It's a gift. The one thing I don't have, though, is super cool luggage. At least, I didn't until I recently hooked up with my friends over at Irv's Luggage. (We'll talk about them a little bit later...) Sick of always grabbing the wrong black suitcase from the luggage turnstyle at the airport, I decided it was time for a change. Time for a MARVELous ...

Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 2: Animal Kingdom

We survived our first day at Disney World: Hollywood Studios. After an exhausting day, we tried to get to bed as early as possible because it was a very early start on Day 2. Yes, our 2nd day was a wild one as we ventured into Animal Kingdom! Up before 6 am (If it weren't for my wife, I think the entire rest of our group would still be sleeping right now!), me, Allie and the boys were up, dressed finished breakfast and got on line for the bus well before 8 am. Thankfully her cousin Ivy and her family made it in time as well. The reason for such an ...

Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 1: Disney Hollywood Studios

Our Disney World vacation was officially underway. Up bright and early to catch the bus from All Star Sports hotel, we made it to Disney Hollywood Studios before the park even opened. I was already seriously impressed. No, not at the crazy cool awesomeness that is Disney, but at the fact that my wife Allison had managed to get all eight of us up, dressed and at the park so early. Getting me, Jason and Ryan up is one thing, but she also got her cousins Ivy and Ira (and their two boys Matt and Ethan) into the solid vacation routine. We were all one tired, well-oiled machine! While I had been ...

We Didn’t Win the Super Bowl, But We Still Vacationed in Disney World!

Fourteen years. It took me 14 years to finally convince my wife to go to Disney World. Allie had gone when she was little, as had I. Epcot had just been built, in fact, the last time my parents took me and my sister on one looong road trip from New York to Orlando Florida. We still joke about all the "Stop at Pedro's" billboards we saw along the way. My wife loves Disney, don't get me wrong. Beauty and the Beast was "our movie" and we've seen just about every follow-up animated film since. Maybe it's that we have two boys? Maybe it's because we've really only gone on vacations we can drive ...
