You probably know that there are four theme parks at Walt Disney World in Florida: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Cruising with Carnival

2015-12-31T17:25:06-04:00

Often times when I tell people that I can help them with their travel reservations the response I get is “but we’re not going to Disney World”. I suppose because Disney World is one of my favorite places to travel to people assume that Travel with the Magic only does Disney trips. However, this is definitely not the case! We can assist with travel reservations of all types. And I would like to talk about another one of my favorite [...]

Disneyland versus Disney World – The 6 major differences

2015-12-31T16:36:05-04:00

    Disneyland versus Disney World, some may think the two are one in the same, but they couldn’t be more wrong. While these two share many characteristics, in other ways they couldn’t be more opposite, starting with their location. Disney World is located in Orlando, Florida but you’ll have to travel 2,496 miles West to arrive in Anaheim, California home of Disneyland. Property Size & Hotels Besides their locations the next noticeable difference are the properties sizes. Disney World [...]

Star Wars at Disneyland

2015-12-31T16:17:06-04:00

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I fell in love with Star Wars. Yes, I’m a middle-aged woman admitting that I love a science fiction movie series. I love the story lines, the mystery, and the element of good versus evil. The first movie came out when I was in middle school. I can still remember the theater where I saw it (the theater isn’t even in business anymore) and the dreamy feeling I had when [...]

What’s included in a Disney Cruise

2016-01-15T09:44:45-04:00

Many people talk about cruises as being “all inclusive”, and what is included can differ from cruise line to cruise line, so I thought I would set the record straight on what is included when you set sail on one of Disney’s four cruise ships, and what is an additional fee. Here are all the things included in the price of your cruise: Entertainment: Most of your entertainment such as the amazing nightly shows, movies in the theater and at [...]

Character Dining at the Disneyland Resort

2016-01-08T08:41:52-04:00

Character dining at the Disneyland Resort is quite a bit different than at Disney World. Because the resort is a bit smaller, there aren’t quite as many options to choose from. But once you experience the character meals, you’ll love the Disneyland difference!!   There are two types of character meals at Disneyland – character meals and premium character meals. Vouchers for both types can be added to your vacation package (ask your Travel with the Magic Travel Planner for more [...]

Fun Things to Do In Alaska, Part One

2015-12-16T20:58:52-04:00

I will be honest. I grew up in Alaska, so I am a little partial to my home state. But, I can promise you that it will be one of the most beautiful places you’ve ever visited. For most travelers to Alaska, a cruise ship is their method of transportation…but don’t be afraid to fly into Anchorage and experience Alaska on land (and maybe some water too). Although I could probably give you a million reasons to visit my home [...]
