We do this a few times a year when there is a break in school work and we all need a chance to relax and have fun. After letting everyone get some more sleep, we head to the parks for a day where I say “yes” to all the family’s requests for food and rides. When we’re at Magic Kingdom Park, someone often orders a meal or snack at Casey’s Corner.
