There is always a lot of excitement about having kids start another school year: new lunchboxes and meet the teacher, full days where kids are busy and engaged and soaking up knowledge.

So do you pull your children out of school to travel or stick to the school holidays? Here are a few things to consider: School Attendance Policies First and foremost, check into your [...]

A Different Kind of Magic

2020-06-03T09:04:01-04:00June 3, 2020|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I miss working with my clients to create a vacation so magical, it will never be forgotten.  My passion for this job has been longing for normal.  Normal is not [...]

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Villains After Hours event at Magic Kingdom (so much fun!).

It was originally opened in August 1997, boasting a blend of Spanish, Mexican, and American Southwest cultures. After living in New Mexico for six years, I can say the theming of the main [...]
