Dos and Don’ts of Universal Studios Orlando

There are so many amazing things to do in Orlando, it comes as no surprise it was the #1 destination in 2018.  While I write a lot about Disney World, there is an entirely different world just 20 minutes away: Harry Potter World.  Universal Studios Orlando is best known for Harry Potter and there is good reason for that.  It is 100% worth seeing, even if you are not a Harry Potter fan and even if you have never seen the movies or read the books.  The attention to detail in Diagon Alley and Hogsmead are stunning.  It is immersive and absolutely breathtaking.

Since you might be planning your first visit, let’s go over the Dos and Don’ts of Universal Studios: Orlando. Continue reading “Dos and Don’ts of Universal Studios Orlando”

If you have read my blog on Viva Italia, then you know how excited I am about the new itineraries being released.  Adventures by Disney is a guided tour to some of the most beautiful places in the world with the service and magic only Disney can bring.  I can not speak highly enough of these tours because they really are life changing.  I met some amazing friends, had some unbelievable experiences and can not wait to go on my next adventure.

Castaway Cay Cabanas

IMG_6966If you have been to Castaway Cay, you’ve likely noticed the ever coveted cabanas.  These are one of the hottest items of any Disney Cruise Line stop at their private island in The Bahamas.

What makes them so popular?  Mainly the luxury of having an amazing “home base”, but also for larger families, this is a great price for what all is included.

So what do you get with a cabana rental?  Currently you will get Continue reading “Castaway Cay Cabanas”

Adventures by Disney: Viva Italia

Best. Trip. Ever.  100% not exaggerating.  This was the best trip I have ever taken and I can not say enough great things about it.  I do not even know where to start.  The beginning was so polar opposite from the end… so I guess let’s start there.  How did I even end up on an Adventures by Disney vacation?  Simple: Convenience and my ridiculous paranoia. My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with a special trip.  We tossed out various ideas and nothing would stick.  My husband had never been to Europe Continue reading “Adventures by Disney: Viva Italia”

Explore the world with Adventures by Disney

It’s true.  You can explore six different continents with Adventures by Disney.  I can personally tell you: these are some of the most well run and thought out itineraries out there.  My husband and I did the Via Italia with Adventures by Disney and LOVED every second of it.  I can not speak highly enough about them and you can read all about my adventure HERE, but I wanted to talk first about all the available options and the program itself.IMG_3339

For me, I have a long running wish list of Continue reading “Explore the world with Adventures by Disney”

Christmas: WDW, Disney World

Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt

My husband and I were able to explore Disney Springs on Monday and check out a lot of the Christmas decor and the Christmas Tree Trail, which I loved.  We even partook in Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt.  Yes… We are kids at heart and even adults can hunt (without kids).  I recommend doing this while you are in Disney Springs.  First and foremost, it is FREE.  Whether you are doing it for yourself or with a child, you can not beat free.  I do wish some of the hiding spots would have been a little more of a challenge, but overall no complaints.  If it was a crowded night, it would have been much more challenging.  We were there on a Monday morning, so there were not too many other people.
