Dinner With Disney!

If there is one place in the world that I will never be too old for, where the most magical memories are made, and where happiness lives, that place is Walt Disney World. I have always been a huge Disney fan and every time I walk through those gates, I feel like I am a kid again.

No Disney vacation can be complete without experiencing the wonder of their cuisine, whether it's something as simple as a quick snack at a kiosk, or a delicious, sit down dinner at one of their 200 (yes...200!) restaurants on the 40-square mile property. Walt Disney World is a premiere, international dining destination, with something for everyone.

Craving a Mickey-shaped ice cream bar? Just swing by a kiosk while walking to your next attraction. Prefer to sit down in an adults-only, formal setting, with harps, butler service and personalized menus? Then the AAA 5 Diamond-rated Victoria and Albert’s is the perfect choice!

Right now is the perfect time to experience Walt Disney World's vast array of eating choices, as the park is offering a free Disney dining plan promotion! Book your Disney vacation today through the promotion and you will be able to:

Even My Dishwasher Thinks I Work Too Hard!

First of all, I want to offer much thanks to the team at Mom Central for their patience with me in sharing my last posts about my beloved Frigidaire Dishwasher with you. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am going through some life changes that have taken up much of my time and the great people at Mom Central have gone above and beyond in understanding about me missing (that's putting it mildly) my deadlines.

I am back now and ready to blog away and have some exciting posts to share with you! But first, I want to bring you my final post in my Frigidaire Dishwasher series to let you know how very impressed my family has been with its performance.

Let me just say that this is one dishwasher that refuses to let you work too hard. I discovered this when I noticed a build up of soap on my dishes and didn't know why it was happening. It turns out it was my fault, not the dishwasher's.

Frigidaire's Professional Line dishwashers are both energy efficient and intelligent. It actually knows when your dishes are clean and when they are soiled. Having been used to pre-washing my dishes before loading them into the dishwasher (which requires a lot of effort and time), I was essentially telling my dishwasher, "Hey, here are some clean dishes for you to wash!"

Frigidaire's soil sensor recognized that the dishes were not soiled, and thus, ran fewer wash/rinse cycles. But I had been putting in enough soap for a full, soiled load.

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty impressed with a dishwasher that tells you, "No, REALLY! Stop working so hard! Let me do it for you!" :)

Now, we have a "just scrape" rule where we wipe off the big chunks of leftover food and leave the rest to our Frigidaire dishwasher to take care of. So now I'm saving even MORE time, which is something that I am definitely short on these days!

As if I hadn't already had enough things to rave about when it came to the dishwasher, I've found a new thing to love! (and if you've read my previous posts, you know that there is SO much to love when it comes to this dishwasher!)

Click here to see all that the Frigidaire Professional Line Dishwasher has to offer. Thanks again to Mom Central for allowing me to test drive this fabulous appliance!

“I wrote this review while participating in a Test Drive Campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Frigidaire and received a Frigidaire Dishwasher to facilitate my review.”
