Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney Pixar’s Brave follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources including her mischievous triplet brothers to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery.

Rafiki’s Power Over Me


Why is it every time I watch The Lion King, I get the urge to bow down to Simba when he is presented to the animals as the future king. Rafiki is so enticing that I’m drawn and mesmerized by the ceremony to a point that I forget its a cartoon.

My daughters make fun of me and of course call me crazy and weird. They don’t understand the symbolism involved and the tradition many if our ancestors also practiced many years ago. Maybe our customs and traditions are not as overt as they used to be but they are still practiced. In my family, the baby is “presented” to the clan at the christening, which usually takes place within the first 4 months of the baby’s life.

What are some of your traditions and customs. I would love to hear about how things are done in different parts of the world and cultures.

Two- or Three-Night Stay at Clarion Suites Maingate in Kissimmee, FL

Comfy Hotel with Complimentary Shuttles to Walt Disney World

Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Walt Disney World are each so large and so distinct they could occupy their own zip codes. But these popular theme parks are all located within minutes of each other in Orlando. Clarion Suites Maingate has free shuttles that commute back and forth between these famous parks every day.

The family-friendly hotel features a huge, heated outdoor pool, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub. Each morning, you can enjoy a free continental breakfast. At night, you’ll return to spacious suite accommodations, which are decorated in soft pastels and off-white shades. Kids can keep occupied by playing arcade games or betting on the Little League World Series in the game room.

Kissimmee, Florida: Next to Famous Theme Parks and Downtown Orlando

Walt Disney World opened its doors to the public on October 1, 1971, and it quickly became the world’s most-visited entertainment resort. Today, Disney World spans some 30,000 acres of theme and water parks, spas, fitness centers, golf courses, and more. With the success of Disney, hordes of other theme parks have popped up along International Drive, including Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Gatorland.

If you want to escape the theme parks and costumed characters for a little while, it’s worth venturing to downtown Orlando’s vibrant arts district. In addition to hip restaurants and bars, the neighborhood features artsy venues such as the CityArts Factory, a multifaceted complex of art galleries and performance spaces. In the same building, you can find SAK Comedy Lab, which features improvised comedy performances and shows such as the family-friendly Duel of Fools.

After a day golfing or riding roller coasters, consider taking a short drive to the nearby town of Celebration—a community built by Disney in the mid ’90s. It’s quaint and impeccably clean, and it features numerous independent restaurants and local boutiques.

Three-Night Stay in One- or Two-Bedroom Suite at Grande Villas Resort in Orlando

Spacious, Family-Friendly Suites Minutes from Walt Disney World

After the success of Disneyland in the 1950s, Walt Disney turned his sights on central Florida for his next amusement-park venture: Disney World. This time, he made sure to build his sprawling dreamland in an area secluded enough to provide plenty of room for growth. In the years since, the area in and around Orlando has proven itself capable of supporting a bumper crop of family-friendly offerings, not just from Disney but from a host of other suppliers of whimsy as well. With its colorful pink, blue, and yellow façade, playground, and water volcano, Grande Villas Resort holds its own among the area’s many resorts—and all within short driving distance of Disney World and other major theme parks.

Like a home away from home, all of the resort’s suites come with fully stocked kitchens, master bedrooms, and whirlpool-jet tubs. Foldout sleeper sofas in the living room accommodate additional friends, family, and members of the Swedish national cricket team. Two-bedroom units measure more than 1,300 square feet and boast an extra set of twin beds and an additional bathroom. A private, screened patio or balcony extends from each suite, overlooking the resort’s two pools or palm-studded gardens.

Orlando: World-Class Shopping and Theme Parks

Located about 6 miles from Disney World and Universal Studios, Grande Villas Resort lies within easy reach of the amusement parks that put Orlando on the map. But with a network of nearly 100 lakes and canals, Orlando has plenty to explore beyond the amusement parks. Malls and trendy retailers dot the major intersections in upscale Thornton Park. And about 20 minutes to the north, smaller boutiques and chocolatiers line the brick-paved streets in Winter Park.

Still, most families can’t resist the allure of seven major theme parks within a 10-mile radius. Disney characters come to life at the 107-acre Magic Kingdom, where Cinderella Castle towers over gentle children’s rides and adrenaline-pumping roller coasters. The park’s Fantasyland is currently undergoing an expansion that will eventually leave it doubled in size thanks to the application of a piece of cake imported from Wonderland.

What You Get

Three-night stay

Travel Window: April 16–May 24

  • $215 for four in a one-bedroom suite
  • $279 for six in a two-bedroom suite

Travel Window: May 25–June 30

  • $319 for four in a one-bedroom suite
  • $389 for six in a two-bedroom suite
