Universal Studios Orlando


Last month I went to Universal Studios Orlando for the first time since 1998 when it was only Universal Orlando! Way back before There was Islands of Adventure or even Volcano Bay! I have to say it’s has changed quite a bit since then and for the better! I will say I was a little upset when I went because I wanted to ride the Twister ride but that has been long gone for years now. I was happy that E.T. was still there and Olivia found it creepy as all! 


We were able to take advantage of using the Attraction Assistance Pass because my daughter needed it. She has Austim Spectrum Disorder and so going to parks during the summer has always been a struggle for her. She normally can’t handle it because she can’t wait in long lines at all. She also has sensory issues and so some of the rides just weren’t going to do with her. We went to Guest Services which is right by the front entrance and was able to get the pass. There were several people who were turned away from the pass due to them saying things that they could tell were untrue. I actually came into the park with my daughters paperwork from the doctors. It was also a very hot day and needless to say many people weren’t happy to be there. The AAP allowed us to go into the express pass lines if the wait time was 30 minutes or less and if it was longer than that then we were given a time to come back and enjoy the ride. We were pretty lucky and didn’t have to wait out for a ride except for one ride but it was closed due to bad weather. 


We did enjoy some snacks while we’re there and we enjoyed a giant donut that was delicious!!! We shared it but I’m gonna be honest I could have eaten all by myself! The best deal for the day was we got a refillable mug for $14 each and we got free refills on soda and icees all day long! Couldn’t have asked for a better deal and I’m the long run it saved us a ton of money there alone! This is something I highly recommend for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on drinks for the day they are there. 

And if you want to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and want to ride Hogwarts Express then you will need a Park to Park ticket so you can go to both parks. We enjoyed our time in that area and my daughter and niece loved the theming but my daughter was having meltdowns due to the amount of people packed in there. 


The rides were really fun and while we only got to ride a few it was nice to just hang out for a while. The one complaint that I have is that most of the thrill rides are not “fluffy” friendly. Now I’m not a big person by any means but I have to say after being pushed down into one of the rides so that I could ride with my daughter. And they only have one seat on the thrill rides for larger people. But that was my only complaint for the whole trip there. I highly suggest this park if you love Harry Potter!

Volcano Bay is Open!

On May 25, 2017, Volcano Bay opened up in Orlando, FL. I saw the opening ceremony of the park and let me just say this park looks amazing!!! I was hoping that Universal Studios would come out with a new park and this one is just as amazing as their other two parks in Orlando. Volcano Bay has many new rides that just amaze me in what they look like. Universal Studios did an amazing job on this park and I hope that I will get to visit it this summer will make the whole week better!

My question to you my clients is…When you go to a Waterpark..what is a MUST do while there? Mine is definitely the Lazy River! I could spend all day in there and the wave pool!

New Destinations!

I remember when I was younger going to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, VA for many summers! We either went camping or we stayed in a resort. Either way great memories were made there! Another big annoucement is I am going to Universal Studios in June! I have been there back in 1998 but haven’t been back since! I would love to be able to book you and your family for a vacation at Universal Studios! Plus they have a new waterpark opening up on May 25, 2017!!! This is like no other waterpark and will have to be checked out for sure! Let me help you out on all your traveling needs!

Disney Cruise Line: The Dream

img_3921

Since Disney released it’s latest promotion, I have been asked why should we cruise with Disney Cruise Lines? Well let me answer that for you now! When you sail with Disney Cruise Lines, you are getting one of the best vacations you can take! I was very lucky to enjoy the Disney Dream Ship that sails to the Bahamas on a 3 or 4 night cruise and have fallen in love with the ship! The details are impeccable and the crew mates on the ship are so helpful! Being able to tour the ship, has made me want to cruise and enjoy a few days with my family. Here are a few things that you will love with the ship!

  • Free Soda, Tea & Juice on the Pool Deck which is awesome because I for one do not want to pay extra for any kind of drink besides alcoholic drinks!
  • There is a fun Sail Away Party on board for all those to enjoy! (I didn’t get to see but wishes I could have seen it!)
  • There are so much for kids and parents to enjoy while on the boat! No one will be bored at all!
  • The amount of entertainment that the ship offers to all you will be plenty entertained! There are movies to watch aboard the ship and the shows are absolutely amazing!
  • The food, oh the food is amazing and you will not be disappointed in the food options you have aboard the ship! When I toured the Disney Dream I was completely blown away by the amount of food that is offered and by the quality of the food as well. Wow is all I can say. And I mean who doesn’t want unlimited food while on vacation? I know I love food and that is all!
  • The Kids Clubs are so neat and there is one for little ones, and there are ones for the teens so no one can say they can’t find anything to do while on board the ship.
  • The staterooms are perfect too and that is a wonderful thing too because who doesn’t like the extra space that the Disney Cruise Line has to offer?
  • There are two special restaurants just for adults called Remy & Palo! Both cost extra but the experience would make it all worth while for those special celebrations like anniversaries and more.
  • There is a nursery for the little ones who aren’t old enough to go into the kids clubs with the older siblings. There is an additional fee for this but if you want to spend a few hours on deck and get some sun or want to go to Palo or Remy then this is perfect for you and your family!

The experience all over is just perfect for anyone who is looking to enjoy their family vacation! Just spend as much time as you’d like to!

Is The Deluxe Dining Plan Worth It?

I have been asked a lot if the Deluxe Dining Plan at Walt Disney World is worth the price and I have to say that yes it is! Ever since I started going with my husband back in 2011, we have gotten the Deluxe Dining Plan. He loves to eat and well I love to hoard the snack credits until the end of the trip. We did realize that it is a lot of food, but we like having the option to either eat at a Table Service Meal or a Quick Service Meal each day! We love having the opportunity to eat 3 meals a day if we wanted to…or if we wanted to have a late breakfast and a dinner at a signature dining restaurant meal.

We have only gotten the Disney Dining Plan once for a quick weekend trip and for that trip it was enough food. But for a week long trip and if you are foodies like we are, maybe the Deluxe Dining Plan is for you and your family! Here are some of the reasons and perks of getting the Deluxe Dining Plan with your vacation package:

  1. 3 Meals a day if you choose to or if your not a breakfast person, then maybe an early lunch and a meal that takes two dining credits.
  2. You can eat at either a table service meal or you can choose quick service as your meal.
  3. You can eat at restaurants such as Cinderella’s Royal Table, California Grill or do a dining show like Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness!
  4. If you want all meals to be character meals then you can.
  5. When you sit down at a lunch or dinner meal that is a table service meal then you get an appetizer, entree, dessert and a non-alcoholic drink!
  6. You will never go hungry on this plan since you are walking a lot while on vacation!
  7. You get 2 snack credits per night which is amazing.
  8. You can do all buffet meals if you want.
  9. You don’t have to worry about how many dining credits you have or using too many to eat at a signature dining restaurant.
  10. You can enjoy different restaurants each meal!

The choices are wonderful and honestly I always suggest this meal plan! The one thing that you do have to worry about is tipping if you eat at a Table Service Meal but you will never go hungry on this meal plan either! And if you go during the Free Dining and stay at a Moderate or Deluxe Resort, you can upgrade from the Disney Dining Plan to the Deluxe Dining Plan! We have as a family eaten at a lot of new restaurants while having this plan and I love to wait until the last day to get all of our snack credits so we can have treats for the road home!
