I’m frequently asked where we vacation when we’re not at Walt Disney World. It’s hard to believe, but not everybody that writes often about Disney topics lives a short drive from the Magic Kingdom. Sometimes I wish!

But there are days where I’m glad we are a long and arduous eight hour drive away from Orlando, because we live just 15 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, where thousands of people drive every year to go on vacation. We live in Foley, Alabama, just a hop and skip from the towns of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

I’m going to spend some time introducing you to the costal Alabama lifestyle, because not all the world class dining and accommodations are located in sunny Florida. We have some jewels of our own.

Because when you can’t be a Disney Princess, the next best thing is to be a Beach Princess!
