Rooms for your Mermaids at Heart

Rooms for your Mermaids at Heart

Maggie Ballantyne6.17.21 I always enjoy my stays at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. I love the theming, the larger-than-life characters, the Skyliner, and the general feel of the resort. It is fun, it is relaxing, it is a perfect vacation spot, it is Disney. But on this specific visit in February 2021, I was more pleased with my stay than ever been before. Why? Newly renovated Little Mermaid Rooms! At the Art of Animation there are...

Fantastic Food Offerings at Epcot’s Flower & Garden

Fantastic Food Offerings at Epcot’s Flower & Garden

Rebecca Jones6.15.21 Each year, Epcot hosts several festivals and often there are booths that offer smaller sized portions of unique food offerings. These are some of my favorite things at Epcot, as it allows me to sample several different types of cuisine without committing to a full meal. Most dishes are priced between $5-10. I’ve highlighted a few of my family’s favorites below. I traveled with my husband and three...

The Day My Husband Became a Jedi!

Dana Munoz6.10.21 In December 2020, my husband and I traveled to Walt Disney World to celebrate his 30th birthday. It was a much-needed trip after all we have been through in 2020, and it was so nice to go to one of our favorite places, and feel safe! The best part of the trip, by far, was experiencing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for the first time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. My husband, Steve, is the biggest Star Wars fan I know. He...

The 50’s Prime Time Cafe Experience

The 50’s Prime Time Cafe Experience

Tara Mulkerin6.3.21 One of the most fun restaurant experiences in Walt Disney World is the 50’s Prime Time Café. Located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this lunch and dinner eatery has classic comfort foods with a theme and character component.  Set in a 1950s atmosphere, you will see kitchen nick-naks, such as a lobster mold on the wall and appliances like an old- fashioned radio or toaster. Colorful countertop seating adds to...

The Big Question For Parents: Do I Need a Stroller? All you need to know…

The Big Question For Parents: Do I Need a Stroller? All you need to know…

Shaina Brainard6.1.21 In one word, yes. Don’t get me wrong- I long for the day that my family will all be walking on our own two feet around the park. But for anyone with young kids, you’re not there yet. Walt Disney World is hard on little feet. If you tour the parks like our family, we reach thousands of steps in a park day, making it very difficult for kids to keep up. And for that reason alone, I recommend having access to a...

Punta Cana VIP Airport Service – Is It Worth It?

Sarah McClure5.27.21 Valuable, Worth It, Necessary, Helpful? Every service or product is deemed valuable or not by the purchaser. That value is always a matter of opinion!  The most important way to decide if a product or service is valuable, worth it, necessary or helpful is to do your research and compare your findings with where your priorities lie. My husband and I visited Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for our 25th wedding...

It’s a Great Day for the Today Cafe!

It’s a Great Day for the Today Cafe!

Rebecca Jones5/25/21 Often times, when you think of theme park dining, mostly not-so-healthy items come to mind: French fries, hamburgers, milkshakes, soda, cotton candy, pretzels. You get the idea. This is why I was so happy to find The Today Café at Universal Studios Florida. Their combination of salads, unique sandwiches, and pastries was exactly what I was looking for. Located immediately to the right upon entering the park,...

Balloons Abound

Balloons Abound

Leslie Dinunzio5.20.21 When I say Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? Turkey? Football? For me, it’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. A huge parade with tons of people, performers and over the top balloons traipsing through New York City. Universal Resorts Orlando typically also offers a small seasonal parade featuring several balloon floats.  2020 certainly put a change into the normalcy of the parade. No spectators in NYC...

A Glimpse of Modified Character Dining at Walt Disney World

Erica Kocher5.18.21 In all of our Walt Disney World vacations, character dining has become a staple.  Everyone in my family has a different favorite experience/meal, so we are frequently going to several on our trips.  On one of our post-pandemic vacations, we decided to try Topolino’s Terrace for breakfast because at the time, it was the only character dining experience open. To say that it was a different experience than we...
