A lot of people skip over the water parks when they go to Walt Disney world, especially families with young children.

My 5 Favorite Things About Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa

2023-10-04T18:00:09-04:00December 28, 2016|Disney Travel|0 Comments

Location – This seems obvious, right? Aulani is in Hawaii, so how could it be anything less than fantastic. To me, one of the best things about Aulani, is that it is Ko’Olina. This is on the less touristy, less busy side of Oahu. You’re 27 miles away from Waikiki, 26 miles from North Shore, and 17 miles from Pearl Harbor. This means that you feel very secluded and private, but you’re not far from lot of other activities. Food – The food available at Aulani is wonderful. Ama Ama is the perfect beachfront setting for a special dinner. Try [...]

5 Disney Restaurants that are worth the hype

2015-10-29T06:00:00-04:00October 29, 2015|Disney World|0 Comments

When reservations at select Disney restaurants are hard to get, you have to wonder “but is it really worth it?” Here’s my list of what I think it worth the hype at Walt Disney World!   1. Be Our Guest – Magic Kingdom – To me, this is the epitome of Disney magic. When you step into the main ballroom, you feel as if you have been placed directly in a scene from Beauty and the Beast. Not to mention, the food is fantastic! If dining at dinner time, you will have an opportunity to meet The Beast! Please note [...]

Things to do at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

2015-07-10T06:00:00-04:00July 10, 2015|Disney World|0 Comments

Disney’s Caribbean Beach resort is a moderate resort at Walt Disney World resort in Florida. What a lot of people don’t realize because they are so busy going to the parks every day, is that the resort itself has a lot to offer! Let’s start with Centertown. This is where you will find the pool area and shops, as well as the pool bar and several shaded tables to sit under. I personally spent some time with my iPad just hanging out at a table one afternoon and it was really nice! If you prefer to relax in the air [...]
