The New Interactive Wand Experience at Universal!

2014-09-29T11:41:09-04:00

The Wand is a very important part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is a rite of passage for every student; it becomes an integral part of their life as much as their cloak or uniform! The wand is the wizard’s technology; it embodies your membership in the wizarding world; and it’s uniquely yours. Because the wand is so significant in this world of Harry Potter, there is no wonder that Universal brought this experience to life! This [...]

Top Attractions for Toddlers in Animal Kingdom

2014-09-29T08:41:01-04:00

Covering more than 500 acres with 250 different species and 1,700 animals, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is by size the largest park of the four that make up Disney World. Although it doesn’t have as many attractions as the other parks it more than makes up it for with animals. While it does have a few rides with height restrictions, many of the attractions here have none making it the perfect park for toddlers and it’s a bonus to me that [...]

Club Level Lounge at the Grand Californian

2014-09-25T19:58:14-04:00

I have been lucky enough to stay club level at Disneyland’s Grand Californian (the Craftsman Club) a handful of times over the past few years, and I have to say it is one of the most relaxed and laid back lounges I have been in. When you exit the elevators on the club level floor, you are greeted by cast members at two desks welcoming you and asking if you need anything. You then follow the hallway to a door [...]

Disneyland PhotoPass+

2014-09-25T19:59:28-04:00

Disney parks have a great way of making it easy for you to capture the magic while on vacation with the PhotoPass system. There are photographers located throughout the Disneyland resorts – at park entrances, prime locations, and at select meet and greets – ready to take your picture and then, if you don’t already have one, provide you with a PhotoPass card. This PhotoPass card can then be used at all photographer locations for the remainder of your trip. [...]

Catch a free ride on Disney’s Magical Express

2014-09-25T19:20:31-04:00

There are many benefits to staying at a Disney owned and operated resort hotel at Walt Disney World but one of my favorites is the complimentary round trip airport transfers via Disney’s Magical Express. Considering the cost of taxis and other shared ride alternatives from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Disney property this benefit will save your family a significant amount of money. When booking your Disney resort reservation with your travel specialist Magical Express transfers will be added to [...]
