RunDisney and RunUniversal (QandA)

Carrie Fulton7.23.20 With running season being the only sports season still open, many are looking at planning some bucket list trips to for destination races.  While some may feel that exercising on vacation is torture, doing a destination race is actually pretty amazing and certainly helps offset any extra pounds I can find while away from home.

Planning with a Special Needs Mom: Planning Together

Planning with a Special Needs Mom: Planning Together

Annette Miller7/21/20 In my house, there is a fine line between allowing the kids to feel prepared and comfortable with our vacation plans and pulling my hair out. If I tell them about the trip too early, they bombard me daily with questions. How many more days until we leave? How many days will we be there? You get the idea. As a result, I have worked with them to develop a planning timeline that allows them to build excitement and feel...

Travel Insurance: yes or no?

Travel Insurance: yes or no?

Anna Trosper7.16.20 Travel Insurance, do you buy it when you travel? I always get it for our trips, I feel it is a good investment on a costly vacation. We have saved up for our trip and let’s face it, vacations are not cheap. I can’t afford not to get insurance. Travel insurance is designed to cover financial losses if you must cancel or interrupt a trip. Some policies cover the loss or delay of baggage. They also may cover any...

Aruba’s Semi-Submarine is Fully Amazing!

Christina Szewczuk 7.9.20 When I first heard you could ride in a submarine to explore the Arashi Reef and one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean, I was all in! Well, I was kind of in… I was a little concerned about being fully submerged in the water with no way out; plus it was kind of pricey. With a family of 4, we were a little priced out of that experience. Then I came across this option for a semi-submarine! The pricing was more...

Universal Orlando’s Portofino Bay Resort Club Level

Tara Mulkerin 6.30.20 For my first visit to Universal Orlando Resort I wanted to do it up right. I chose the Portofino Bay Resort for three reasons. The free Universal Express Unlimited pass access; club Level Access and Italian theming. The Express Pass which affords skipping the regular line for a much quicker exclusive line all day over and over. We saved so much time I would have a difficult time enjoying myself without it!
