The Best of Both Worlds - Combining Disney World and Disney Cruise Line for the Ultimate Vacation!

For my 40th birthday, we did a land and sea Disney trip. It was the best week of my life! Sometimes deciding between a Walt Disney World vacation and a cruise on Disney Cruise Line is an impossible task. Rather than having to choose one, you

Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival Must Do List

We love the Flower and Garden Festival. Great food and beautiful flowers! While a good portion of the country is experiencing a polar vortex and the rest of it is smack dab in the middle of winter, I’m going to think ahead to

What is Rotational Dining on Disney Cruise Line?

Rotational Dining is one of my favorite things about Disney Cruise Line! I love sailing on Disney Cruise Line! One of the things I like most about it is the unique rotational dining onboard all four of the Disney ships. So,

Yay!!!! Maleficent is back in all her fiery glory!

Maleficent is back! Check out the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom!

So, just to follow up on my previous Slinky Dog Dash post: the park had a scheduled open time of 9:00am. We got on the bus around 7:35 and made it to the park about 7:52. We were in line to enter the park by 7:58. There were about 6 people in front of us.

They opened the main gates at 8:20 and brought everyone to the edge of Sunset Blvd. At 8:30, the cast members “calmly” walked the very large crowd to Toy Story Land.

It was a bit chaotic. I don’t like being surrounded by large crowds. Nothing to do in this situation but keep walking, and hold on to your kids. People were trying to skip and run ahead (like they were giving away a million dollars!) but the cast members contained it as well as they could.

We got in line for Slinky Dog Dash about 8:35 and we were done by 8:45. We then waited about five minutes for Alien Swirling Saucers. By this time, the wait had gone up to 110 minutes for Slinky Dog. No thanks.

It’s well worth getting up early if you don’t have fast passes and those popular rides are worth it to you!

Checked in to Port Orleans French Quarter today. We got here before our room was ready so we had some beignets and took the ferry to Disney Springs. It’s a relaxing ride, about 15 min. Ate at Chicken Guy, relaxed and walked over to Riverside for dinner. It’s been a great day. Tomorrow we will be up bright and early to be at Hollywood Studios. No Slinky Dog Dash fast passes, so we are going to rope drop it. I will let you know how it goes!

Have you ever experienced Carousel of Progress?? Do you love it or hate it? Our family is split, I love it, they couldn’t care less!

It's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow... today! Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress debuted at Walt Disney World on this day in 1975.

Thank you to everyone to has supported me and my little business this past year. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Don’t let shorties or nervous nellies keep you from riding the thrill rides!

The My Disney Experience app is one of the best ways to make your WDW trip easier. You can find so much info in there: attraction wait times, where characters are, where the nearest restrooms are, and you can even bypass lines in most of the counter service locations by ordering your food through the app!

Hello, all!! One of things I love most about Disney vacations are the memories. I mean, that's why I do this! I love helping families make magical memories that will last a lifetime. This past summer, I had the privilege of helping my friend, Amy, plan a trip for her family to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. They had gone once when their kiddos were super small, and now they are both in college! Amy gave me permission to share some of the photos she took, recreating some of her photos from their first trip. I just love how her family puts so much emphasis on doing things together, rather than buying "stuff" for each other.

Stop by the front desk of your resort or guest services at the parks to get your celebration button!!!

There are so many things going on at WDW parks during each season! Epcot has a festival during almost every season with TONS of great food and entertainment, Hollywood Studios has become to the go-to park for Christmas holiday fun, you can visit Magic Kingdom and attend the Halloween or Christmas party, and all of the parks offer nighttime dessert parties! As your travel agent, I book all of those things for you. ❤️

Don’t just smile and pose with characters! Talk with them about their origin stories, ask them questions! They love that! Especially Gaston...his favorite thing to do is talk about himself!

When you plan a trip, you want to get the most bang for your buck. For most people, they think that means spending every waking moment in a park. Do yourself a favor and schedule some time to hang around your resort, visit a different resort, or Disney Springs! There is so much more to WDW than just theme parks!

You can go to Walt Disney World, go to the parks, hang out at the resorts and have a complete blast, HOWEVER, there are so many other amazing things that you can add to your trip to make it that much more magical!!! As a travel planner, when a client books with me, I take care of scheduling al of the “extras” that make your trip personalized to your family! I will share a few of my family’s favorites in the comments.

There are many people who have vacationed at Walt Disney World who don’t even know what a fast pass is! Using the Fast Pass+ system at WDW is imperative if you don’t want to waste time standing in long lines. Believe it or not, there’s a lot of thought and strategy that goes into picking the best fast passes for your trip! As your travel agent, I’m up the morning your window opens, booking your fast passes at 7:00 am. Even on the weekends!

Most people do not realize that dining reservations are available SIX MONTHS from the date you start your trip! The most popular meals (character meals!) go quickly. It can be very disheartening to try to make your must have reservations and find they are all booked! As your travel agent, I am up and ready to book for you at 6:00am when your dining window opens and I can keep an eye on those hard to get reservations and snatch them up when they become available!

During my travels, I have stayed at several different WDW resorts, as well as stayed offsite. I will say that I have always had a far better experience staying onsite. I love being in the “Disney Bubble!” When I vacation there, I want to be surrounded by the magic 24/7. There’s an on-site option for every budget!

It’s that time of year again!! Tomorrow,I will begin sharing one tip a day to help make your next Walt Disney Trip even more magical! Stay tuned!

#DisneyParksLIVE: Watch ‘Candlelight Processional’ Live from Epcot December 4 at 8:10 p.m. ET

You can watch Neil Patrick Harris perform the Candlelight Processional tonight!! For guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays, “The Candlelight Processional” at Epcot is a must-do, chill-evoking live musical performance that celebrates the season and leaves entire families in awe. And today, I’m thrilled

So cool!!

Here are up close and personal pictures of the interior of the new Disney Skyliner gondolas coming next year to Walt Disney World. Swipe to see all the pictures. The last two show Heather standing next to one and then I cloned her to show that there seems to be plenty of room in there for four across each bench. There “appears” to be AC in them.

New deluxe resort at Walt Disney World!

The name of the new Deluxe Resort at Walt Disney World was revealed at Destination D.

News about Galaxy’s Edge from D23!

So many cool new things being revealed at D23! Our agency owners are there getting all the details. I will share as they do!

The new Disney Skyliner vehicle up close and with people to show scale. Holds 8 people.

I am really missing not having a Christmas trip to WDW this year....I think I am going to have to go ahead and plan one for next year.

As if I didn't already love Disney's Beach Club enough, look at these tasty treats you can get at Beaches 'n Cream! You can only order them when you are eating inside the restaurant (not from the walk up window). They also have chocolate! I am adding this to my list for my next visit!
