Trader Sams and Kona Cafe Review

One of the highlights of my fall 2015 trip was definitely a visit to check out the new Polynesian Lobby as well as Trader Sams, followed by dinner at Kona Cafe. This visit was a trip of new experiences and while I have been to Kona Cafe, it was about 6 years ago.



We had spent a full day in the parks so after a quick rest at our resort, we changed our clothes and headed out to the Polynesian.

Guest Review - The Boathouse

We've had the pleasure of eating and drinking at one of the newest restaurants in Disney Springs, The Boathouse.  We've walked in right off the street and sat at the bar and at the surrounding first come first serve tables.  We've had reservations a couple times and one time even walked up and got a table immediately.  At first the Disney Dining app did not allow for reservations, however it does now.

Splitsville






There are so many fun things to do around the Walt Disney World Resort that don't require the purchase of a park ticket. You could spend an entire week enjoying the various activities, food, stores and more around the resort!

At Disney Springs you can enjoy a little throw back to a by gone era by heading to Splitsville Luxury Lanes.  This establishment opened a few years ago to rave reviews!  Not in the mood for bowling? No worries, you can head here to just have a bite to eat OR you can eat and bowl!

Monday Savings Monday - Shipping to the Resort


I'm a huge fan of Disney dining plan...it's a convention way to prepay for your meals AND save a little money along the way.  Even with all the yummy food that comes with the plan, we often find that there are a few things we could save on if we purchased them elsewhere and in advance.   You have a few different options when pre-ordering items.

La Hacienda Dinner Review

One of the things I probably blog most about is my favorite restaurant at EPCOT...maybe even all of Walt Disney World....La Hacienda!  Today I'm going to review the restaurant in general but our most recent visit was this past March and May!


Expectations of Disney

Lately I see more and more negative posts around the internet regarding Disney...or more like what Disney is doing wrong. There are two problems I see with this...

Contemporary Resort Tour

One of the few resorts left on my bucket list is Disney's Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Towers at Disney's Contemporary Resort. While I haven't stayed here for  vacation, I was able to go on a tour of both the Villas and The Main Tower!

Top 5 Reasons I love Disney's Dining Plan

Disney's Dining plans are among the hot topics you'll come across when planning a Walt Disney World Vacation...along with EPCOT is just for adults, Animal Kingdom is a half day park and pool hopping.  For those of you who follow the blog, it's no surprise I'm a fan of the Disney Dining Plan. You can find several articles throughout the blog dedicated to just that. Today I want to talk about why my family and I love the plan.



Nahtazu

The biggest comment I get from clients is, I don't want to go to Animal Kingdom because we have a zoo locally.  Guess what? Disney's Animal Kingdom is...Nahtazu!!  Years ago there was an ad that ran on the Disney resort tv's that advertised this fun slogan to let people know just that...it's NOT A ZOO!

One of my favorite parts of my job is when we get to help Brides and Groom's being their Happily Ever After!  Whether it be helping their guests attend their destination Disney wedding or helping to plan their magical honeymoon, I love it all!

Fairytale Travel liaison's were born out of a necessity, and something that I didn't have when planning my Fairytale wedding. Let's talk about what happens when you decide to have a destination wedding!

Drinking Around the World

A few years ago I was traveling to Disney with my brother. I wanted to get him a unique gift for Christmas that year. I ended up giving him the gift of, "Drinking Around the World". What? That's a gift!! Let me explain!



This was back in 2007, so I created a tri-fold brochure. The inside included a suggested drink for each country. The back, had a line for each country where he could obtain a signature from the Cast Member as he ordered his drink! I also gave him some Disney Dollars to help fund his experience (RIP Disney Dollars).
