Visiting Universal Orlando during COVID: Universal Resorts Overview

2021-02-03T14:42:45-05:00July 31, 2020|Universal Studios Orlando|0 Comments

Visiting Universal Orlando during COVID: Universal Resorts Overview. I always recommend staying onsite at one of Universal Orlando’s 8 resort hotels during your vacation, but now it is even more important than it was previously. The park capacities are limited at this time. Hotel guests will be given priority entrance to theme parks during the phased reopening. Having park admission does not guarantee park entry. Hotel guests are encouraged to take advantage of their Early Park Admission benefit to access the parks prior to the daily opening to the general public, and hotel guests will be accommodated on a priority [...]

I have always heard that Universal has the best waterpark. If I am being completely honest, I am not a huge fan of waterparks, but after visiting Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando, I have a whole new appreciation for waterparks. I LOVE this place! Here’s what you can expect if you are planning a visit in the near future. Arrive Early - Early Admission is still being offered when you are staying onsite. Take advantage of it to have more time in the waterpark or hop to one of the theme parks in the afternoon with your park to park [...]

Dining at Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa

2015-01-21T06:00:00-05:00January 21, 2015|Disney's Alunai Resort|0 Comments

A vacation to Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa is a tropical getaway. In a lot of ways, the vacation experience is similar to a Disney Cruise vacation – tropical beaches, lots of included entertainment, a complimentary kid’s club, etc. But one major question that comes up when booking an Aulani vacation is what do I do for food? While there is not a dining plan (like at the Disney parks) and the food isn’t included (like on a Disney Cruise), there are still a wide variety of options to choose from in a wide range of prices. Resort Refillable [...]

Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa

2014-12-26T06:00:00-05:00December 26, 2014|Disney Travel|0 Comments

          Everyone knows Disney has theme parks but did you know that Disney has 3 resort properties that stand alone from the parks? These include Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in Florida, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina and the newest property, Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa located on the island of Oahu. One of the first differences you may notice is the name. In all the other resort names, Disney comes first. This is not true at Aulani. Here, Hawaii is first from the moment you arrive on property and read the sign [...]

Dine with Princesses at Ariel’s Grotto

2014-09-19T07:00:00-04:00September 19, 2014|Disneyland|0 Comments

If you have young daughters, no trip to a Disney park would be complete without visiting the Princesses. At the Disneyland resort in California, one great way to meet a lot of Princesses at one time is to make a dining reservation at Ariel’s Grotto – located in Disney California Adventure. Ariel’s Grotto is a fun, beach themed restaurant that looks over Paradise Pier. There is indoor and outdoor seating (be sure to note your request if you have a preference). They do utilize a group seating method where they start seating the entire restaurant at once, so while we [...]
