    If you haven’t gone there before, be sure you get some lightweight water bottle carriers for when you’re standing in lines, because at the end of Sept it will still be very hot and very humid and you will thank all the gods there are that you have water (and maybe a few little snacks in your purse as well). And after you get a hotel room (Ooo, the boardwalk hotels, because it’s fun to walk along the boardwalk with an ice cream cone melting all over your hand…oh and the hotel has a huge clown slide at the swimming pool. I couldn’t keep my husband off it.) get a stash of bottled water at a grocery store or you’ll be spending on water bottles the money you meant for the Donald Duck tee-shirts. πŸ™‚

    Awesome, Angie!! You guys totally deserve a vacation and Disney rocks socks! So happy to hear you’ve bought tickets!

    Ooooooh, Disney! I liked the Animal Kingdom best of all. If I could only visit one park, I’d pick that one. πŸ™‚ We’ve been a couple of times and we always pack enough food for the day and store the cooler in a rented locker. Saves lots o’ $$, and you can save your pennies for a Mouseketeer hat and a Mickey-shaped ice cream bar.

    My nephew just came back with his Godmother. And he said “It’s the most fun I’ve had in my whole life.” But he’s six.

    Have fun.

    😎 Definitely invest it a Fodor’s and a Frommers guide to Disney. Well, worth the $, or check out the websites for tidbits on how to maximize your time there. I’ve done Disney World about 8 times now and it’s spot-on advice.

    We love you Angie! And WOOHOO on Disney! I’d so love to go one day. But it’s an expensive flight from NS Canada. πŸ™

    Have never been to Disney! Who will have more fun, you or Brianna? πŸ™‚ Hopefully by the end of Sept it won’t be as hot. I’m totally obsessed with the heat right now.

    Oh, Diana C,

    And here I thought hubby and I were the only twisted people who love Disney and Vegas equally. LOL

    I was away so missed the part where someone was mean to you (will look back to see what happened) but I would have kicked their butt if you wanted me to. :fire: Seriously. And that’s not just sucking up. Cause I don’t like it when people are not nice to people I like.

    And :boobie: Disney World? How cool. I’d love to go there. We’ve done Disneyland because it’s easier, us being on the West Coast. Brianna will have a blast. How old is she now? We went in 2004 when my dd was 2 1/2 and my oldest son was 5. My dd has more fun than my son I think! The dumbo ride was her favourite.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
