New Orleans – First Time Starter Trip

Let me start with saying that I’m not a New Orleans expert but I’ve been about 20 times and seen a fair amount of the city. A lot of people have it as a bucket list item for at least a “quick weekend”. So if you’ve never been, here’s a few things that I’ve shared…

Grand Dining, Laid Back

The elegance of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is unmatched, you’re greeted by the Victorian theming of turn-of-the-century Florida at every turn. With many dining options from quick-service stops up to the award-winning Victoria & Albert’s, the Grand Floridian Café lands right in the middle. With a nice menu, attentive wait staff and just enough “fancy”…

Fine Dining, Unexpected

When it comes to fine dining at Walt Disney World, with a nice steak or seafood, many guests immediately think of Yachtsman Steakhouse or Le Cellier. To be honest, I can’t disagree. However, I’d like to add another option to your list. On our last visit, my wife and I made our first visit to…

Modern, Sleek & Tech’ed Out – Universal’s Aventura

On your next visit to Universal Orland Resort in Florida, you may want to consider the new Aventura Resort Hotel. It’s modern and sleek and perfect for an adult visit or a trip with your teenagers. Is it more “millennial” that other resorts hotels? Definitely, and it’s really a great stylish and ‘chill’ experience! It’s…

Honorary Toys Get Hungry Too!

When you enter Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you become an honorary toy and everything is huge because you’ve shrunk down to the size of a toy! That doesn’t mean that your appetite has shrunk too. A great quick-service stop in Hollywood Studios is Woody’s Lunch Box. They’re open for breakfast, lunch and…

By George- This Is Delicious

If you’re a wine aficionado then you probably already know about Wine Bar George at Disney Springs. But let me be clear, you do NOT have to be a wine enthusiast to make this one of your must-do’s at Walt Disney World. I’ll freely admit that I’m not a wine expert, I’m not a regular…

The Magic Of Halifax Nova Scotia

Stops in Canada are quite rare on a Disney Cruise Line vacation. And wow, are they worth it! The Disney Magic has a variety of itineraries out of New York, but not many that will make a stop in Halifax Nova Scotia. If you can, definitely get on one of these sailings! I did and…

Let’s Do Greece, France, & Belgium In 2020!

Summer 2020 itineraries have been released for Disney Cruise Line, and we can start booking next week! How exciting that DCL is headed back to the Greek Isles! I can’t wait. On Monday 3/4, we can book for Platinum Castaway Club guests (11 or more cruises completed) On Tuesday 3/5, Gold (6-10 cruises completed) On…

Wi-Fi & the Navigator

Even on vacation, we want to be connected sometimes and Disney Cruise Line makes that easy with Wi-Fi available throughout the ship. But keep in mind that it’s not free for the entire trip. Before you get on board, be sure to download the DCL Navigator app for your smartphone. It doesn’t do much prior…

The New Sebastian’s Bistro

Now that we’re into 2019, the newly refurbished Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World is attracting plenty of new guests who may have been hesitant to stay while the restaurants were closed and the main building, Old Port Royale, was undergoing renovation. The rooms at Caribbean Beach have always been a favorite of ours,…
