Quick tip of the day

Kim emailed in a tip that suggests using glow sticks on dark rides for kids who are a little scared but still want to ride. It's just enough light to help them without bothering other guest. Thanks for the tip, Kim!

Hi Shannon,
In your Podcast, you stated on your last day on the trip with your son, you took an Uber back to the airport instead of the Magical Express. I had never thought of that before but really despise spending 3 hours at the airport. Roughly how much was your Uber total from the resort to the airport? I hope you don’t mind my asking. Trying to include that in the budget to spend more time in the park on our last day.
