Why is it Good to Travel?

Why is it good to travel?

First ask yourself, why do I want to travel and what do I want to get from it?  Is it a family trip? Is your goal to spend time with your kids without distractions? Is it a trip with your significant other to reconnect and relax? Is it a personal trip, to go somewhere you have always wanted to visit?

These things can all be achieved. Did you know travel also helps you live longer, makes you smarter, increases creativity, gives you a better understanding of culture, makes you happier, broadens your horizons, gives you confidence, improves your communication skills, gives you real life education and an appreciation of what you have, and it makes memories that will last a lifetime.  Plus, there are even studies that tell us traveling truly makes us healthier!

These are all important things in life, so your vacation is important.  You want your vacation to be the best experience possible. You have worked hard for this money and this time away.  Of course doing rese…

Bringing Your Little Ones to Disney

Many of my clients wonder if they should wait until their kids are older to take a vacation to Disney.  While bringing a younger child does require more upfront details to plan (that is where we can help!) and may require the ability to adjust plans on the fly, we have found that there are lots of benefits to bringing children under 3 to Disney and have some planning tips to make it easier!
Disney was created for the young (and young at heart)Even for a toddler, there is so much to do and more importantly - they will love it!  There are many rides with no height requirements, so your little one can ride with you.  There are also parades, attractions, and character meet and greets that are sure to appeal to the younger set!  Plus, it gives you an excuse to hang out on the “kiddie” rides! And, let’s face it, character meet and greets are more fun with the kids!

Making Memorable Meet and Greets

For many, meeting a beloved character is a highlight of any trip to Disney World.  While rides and shows are great, they fall short when it comes to delivering a personal experience.  A character meet-and-greet allows guests a few moments of individual attention with a special Disney character.  A quick chat, photo, autograph, and a warm hug offer a meaningful experience. Below are a few tips to give you better and more meaningful character meeting experiences. Times Guide - When you enter the Disney parks, be sure to grab a copy of the free ‘Times Guide’. The guides will be located with the maps at the front of the park (as well as at the registers of some of the larger stores on property). The Times Guide will list characters that are regularly scheduled to be in the park each day, as well as the time and location of their appearance. PhotoPass - Many character greetings have a dedicated PhotoPass photographer to capture your memories. On certain occasions, you may want to have a full…

Coming to Disney Parks in 2019

2019 is going to be a huge year for Disney on both coasts.  The next twelve months will bring with it brand new entertainment, new restaurants, a couple new hotels in Florida, Mickey Mouse’s first-ever ride, and Star Wars: Galaxy Edge will make its debut in California this summer and in Florida in the fall.  

Star Wars: Galaxy Edge There has been a lot of anticipation for this Star Wars-themed land.  The 14-acre land will open at Disneyland this summer, and it will make its debut in Florida later this year.  Each land will have two attractions: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. This is the first time that Disney has duplicated the exact same land in two locations.  Themed shopping, character interactions and a cantina bar will round out your visit to the Outer Rim’s most mysterious planet, Batuu. Visit Galaxy Edge at Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida and at Disney California Adventure in California.
