Renting a Cabana at Volcano Bay

Renting a Cabana at Volcano Bay

Amy Baranek 8.29.19 We recently had our first stay as a family on Universal property and one of the things my boys were most excited about was visiting Volcano Bay.

I knew most of their time would be in the lazy river or wave pool, and the idea of sitting in the hot Florida sun with little shade was making me...

Breakfast at Cape May Cafe

Breakfast at Cape May Cafe

Stephanie Peavy 8.27.19 In all of the times I have visited Walt Disney World, I have somehow missed out on breakfast at Cape May. That was remedied on my trip last June. I have done many character meals, dare I say almost all of them, and Cape May really blew me away! It is located at the Beach Club Resort, which is absolutely fabulous also. It is a deluxe resort located right outside of Epcot. The second I walked through the doors, I knew I...

Celebrating My Birthday at Disney

Amy Baranek 8.20.19 When planning our recent Disney vacation, it just happened that the best time for us to travel and enjoy lower crowds fell during my birthday.

As moms, I know we tend to make vacations all about our kids and other family members-what they most want to do and see. My 12-year-old son was insistent that my birthday be all about...
