A Discovery Cove Kind of Day

A Discovery Cove Kind of Day

By: Becky Mullinax December 28, 2017 I recently visited Discovery Cove in Orlando and found an island paradise in the middle of a large city.

From the front entrance to the back this island adventure is covered in beautiful tropical plants and blue water all around...

Disney’s Rope Drop

Disney’s Rope Drop

By: Sarah McClure December 26, 2017 “Rope Drop” is a Disney phrase meaning “park opening”. Usually “park opening” is a process of allowing guests through a series of steps. Step One at all parks will have guests go through a security screening before arriving at the park entrance. This will include a bag check and a walk through metal detectors.

Charged Up!

This is often a huge drain on my phone’s battery.

My personal mission on my last vacation was to test out this...

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach: A Groovy Resort with a Swell Family Suite

By: Allison Flynn December 12, 2017 I think having parents raised in the 50s and 60s may have contributed to my love of retro things and beach music.

Staying Safe in the Sun on Vacation!

Staying Safe in the Sun on Vacation!

By: Anna Trosper December 7, 2017 Summer is a time for fun outside in the sun! Vacations to the beach or that magical place where Mickey lives, the sun is ever present. Whatever your summer plans, you need to protect you and your family from the sun. If you’re anything like me, you love to bask in the sun. It can be lying on the beach reading a book or playing a game of volleyball. If I am outside I am happy. But there is nothing worse than...
