Review: All Star Movies Resort

Review: All Star Movies Resort

Corrie Krpejs2.23.21 For our latest trip to Walt Disney World, my husband and I decided to check out the All-Star Movies Resort. We personally had not been since the resort was renovated in 2019 and wanted to experience it firsthand. The first thing you will notice when you arrive is the amazing theming that begins at Cinema Hall. This is where you check-in, catch transportation, go shopping, hang at the arcade, and also enjoy some...

Joining the club at Loew’s Portofino Bay Resort

Allison Flynn2/20/21 I’m very particular when it comes to traveling. I prefer a queen or king bed, space to store luggage and clothing, an easy chair to relax in or simply to sit in to put on my shoes, and a bathroom with space for us to all get ready for the day. During my last trip to Universal Orlando Resort, I found all of this and more in a club level room at Loew’s Portofino Bay Resort! Club level rooms at Portofino Bay...

Leslie Dinunzio2/18/21 “Juneau” the capital of Alaska?? Get it?? Yes, no? Either way, when on a cruise to Alaska, Juneau, Alaska’s capital, is a very common and popular port. When in Juneau, a visit to Mendenhall Glacier is equally popular. You can book a tour directly through most cruise lines who will typically bus your family out to the glacier. For the more adventurous family, you can also rent a car and trek out to the glacier...

Lunch at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria

Stephanie Peavy2.11.21 I have been to Walt Disney World countless times, but I have somehow missed this little gem. Last week, my daughter and I took a quick trip to see how things were going since the reopening. We both love Italian food so decided to give Via Napoli a try. From the ambiance to the food, everything was fabulous! Via Napoli is located in the Italy Pavilion of the World Showcase in Epcot. There are so many delicious...

Savi’s Workshop AKA Build Your Own Fancy (not a toy) Lightsaber

Amy Baranek2.9.21 No way am I spending $200 on a lightsaber! Yep, I said that and somehow after researching with my son and watching countless YouTube videos, my mindset started to shift.  My son worked all summer to save for a lightsaber from Savi’s.  Partially due to his enthusiasm and partially due to my inner nerd, I booked an appointment for the both of us during our December trip to Disney.  A few words of...

Tiffany Morse2.6.21 We had been at home in lockdown for months.  I was so ready to get out, I would have even gone somewhere cold, if it meant I got to take a road trip.  I was aching to go somewhere, pretty much anywhere.  I am sure that you can relate.  We needed a piece of equipment to keep going on our house building project.  My husband looked and found the piece we needed in a little town in Georgia.  The...

Adult Only Trip to Cozumel – Secrets Aura Resort

Anna Trosper2/2/21 It was our 20th wedding anniversary in July and we were determined to go somewhere, have some fun, and relax.
