Last September, we took one of the most memorable trips we've even been on. It began with a 3-day visit to London, then taking a 7-night Disney Cruise from Dover with port stops in Copenhagen, Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger. Here we are on a boat trip out to the magnificent Norway Fjords out of Bergen. These are just some of incredible scenes along the way! This is a trip we will never forget as we totally fell in love with Norway.
If anyone is in Disney Flight of Avator is posted as a 40 minute wait and it moved quicker than that.

Today we visit Haiti!

Haiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti's landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress, and the nearby ruins of Sans-Souci Palace, the baroque former royal home of King Henry I.

Not feeling as adventurous but still want to touch down on this beautiful island? For your first visit, consider a Royal Caribbean cruise to Labadee! But I warn you...the taste test will leave you wanting more!

#caribbeanheritagemonth #visithaiti @visithaiti #tryhaiti #tastc.

Yesterday we spent a day at sea with Royal Caribbean and didn't visit an island! But we are back at it today.

Today's Caribbean stop...Guyana.

Destination spotlight
Guyana, a country on South America’s North Atlantic coast, is defined by its dense rainforest. English-speaking, with cricket and calypso music, it's culturally connected to the Caribbean region. Its capital, Georgetown, is known for British colonial architecture, including tall, painted-timber St. George’s Anglican Cathedral. A large clock marks the facade of Stabroek Market, a source of local produce.

Grenada is a Caribbean country comprising a main island, also called Grenada, and smaller surrounding islands. Dubbed the “Spice Isle,” the hilly main island is home to numerous nutmeg plantations.

To the south is Grand Anse Beach, with resorts and bars.

Are you a diver? Then you won't want to miss Grenada's underwater sculpture park!

We are almost halfway through our Caribbean adventure! The Dominican Republic is a Caribbean nation that shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti to the west. It's known for its beaches, resorts and golfing. Its terrain comprises rainforest, savannah and highlands, including Pico Duarte, the Caribbean’s tallest mountain. Capital city Santo Domingo has Spanish landmarks like the Gothic Catedral Primada de America dating back 5 centuries in its Zona Colonial district.

To the west is Dominica’s capital, Roseau, with colorful timber houses and botanic gardens. #DiscoverDominica #ItsInOurNature #DominicaAwaits #trydominica #caribbeanheritagemonth #onecaribbean #caribbeanfamily

The Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory, encompasses 3 islands in the western Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman, the largest island, is known for its beach resorts and varied scuba diving and snorkelling sites. Cayman Brac is a popular launch point for deep-sea fishing excursions.

That perfect moment...

This....Although my love affair with Disney started when I was a child, it was a moment such as shown above that turned our family’s love of Disney into something more.

Our family has grown up loving all things related to the Mouse. It’s in our blood. My parents honeymooned at the Polynesian Resort soon after Walt Disney World opened. I was already visiting the parks when in diapers. My husband’s family visited about every other year and when we got married, there was only one place to say “I do” - Disney!

After walking down the aisle and then visiting the parks both pregnant and with babies, by our 10th family trip - we had it down and were sharing our knowledge with friends and family. After one weekend when I planned 3 trips for free, my husband started researching “Disney Travel Agents” and told me that I didn’t have a choice - I was going to do this because I had to! How right he was! Instead of joining an agency, I started my own and low and behold, Wishes Travel was born.

What was a small hobby soon blossomed into a full time (plus) job and a client list greater than one agent could manage. Slowly over the next few years, I started adding amazing people who had the same passion and drive as I did. What was one is not an incredibly strong, passionate, and dedicated team who are not only amazing agents, but amazing people as well.

The drive for the love of Disney destination vacations has spread from Disney World and now our agents visit and plan trips to Disneyland, Disney Cruise line, Disney beach resorts (Aulani, Vero Beach, Hilton Head) and Adventures by Disney trips (from California to abroad).

So please, take a minute and “like” and “follow” our page and let one of our amazing Wishes Travel agents plan a trip full of magic and memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.
