As a “recycling novice” I was so intrigued to learn all the things. I was especially excited to see the newest recycling robot that can now sort cartons.

The ship docked and we knew that meant we were finally going to see what we have been patiently waiting for. Perfect Day at CocoCay!

Yesterday we hit up Hollywood Studios and although we didn’t have a lot of snacks I thought…
