A Review of the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

2019-08-09T15:00:58-04:00

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Villains After Hours event at Magic Kingdom (so much fun!). While planning for the last minute trip, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to stay at the newly opened Gran Destino Tower located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. For those not familiar, Coronado Springs falls into the moderate resort category and is located in the Animal Kingdom resort area. It was originally opened in August 1997, boasting a blend of Spanish, Mexican, [...]

2016-05-01T17:17:06-04:00

There are three great things about eating the breakfast buffet at Disneyland Park’s Plaza Inn. There is great history in the restaurant, delicious food, and delightful characters for you to meet.

Five fabulous things about New York City

2014-10-30T10:11:39-04:00

There are so many beautiful places to travel in the US. There are beautiful sunsets and mountains. There are great hiking trails and oceans in which to swim. But to me, one of the prettiest views is the outline of the New York City skyscrapers. I love New York! Give me a city street to hike, give me the stores to shop, the people to watch, and the buildings to explore. There is a great deal of history to learn [...]

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 [...]
