I’ve taken my family to Disney World 3 times already so this last trip I decided we will try the value resort and take the low budget approach.  I was a little worried because we’ve always stayed in the other categories (moderate, deluxe, and villa) so a value resort was going to be out of my comfort zone. CHOICE 1: ACCOMMODATION I chose Disney’s All-Star Movies resort which is the sister resort to All-Star Music and All-Star Sports.  When booking a value resort […] Continue reading →

I love this resort and recommend it to clients whenever I can!  Its located on Key Biscayne via a bridge from Miami and although it’s close to everything it seems like a world away. With 490 rooms this resort is large which means it has tons to offer guests but doesn’t feel like a mega-resort. Here are the dining and lounge options: Lobby Lounge Thursday – Saturday have live band Rumbar  Located inside the resort on the main level, it’s a Cuban rum bar and lounge […] Continue reading →

So you’ve booked your first trip to Disney with your kids and you know they are going to be so excited!  But wait, will they really?  We’ve all seen the online videos of the kids being surprised with a trip to Disney World only to be disappointed.  Odds are the younger your children the less they will really understand what a trip to Disney World really means.  I had these same thoughts when I was planning our first trip with the kids when they were going to be 2 and 4.  My biggest […] Continue reading →

The week of Memorial Day I took my family to Walt Disney World for the third time.  My boys are now 5 and 7 so we tried a different approach to this trip.  Usually I try to cram as many days in the parks as possible but for a 6 night stay we only went to the park 4 days but this time with a park-hopper.  We also tried new adventures on our “off day”. We stayed at the Beach Club Villas in a 1 bedroom villa which was the perfect accommodation for us. The kids had their own TV […] Continue reading →

If you’re looking for a unique luxury property located on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, then look no further than the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale. It was originally built in 2007 as St. Regis to mimic the design of a cruise ship since it’s located only 2 miles from the port of Ft. Lauderdale.  Because of it’s close proximity, the resort offers pre and post cruise packages for those who want to start their vacation early or extend it. The resort is located on the beach and […] Continue reading →
