Packing / Traveling Tips Part 1 of 5
Over my next few posts, I’ll bring you some packing and traveling tips. 
1.Throw the hotel bar soap into your dirty laundry bag so it doesn’t stink up your suitcase for the rest of your trip. Don’t have any bar soap lying around? Use a dryer sheet. 2.Wear a night moisturizer on long flights because it’s extra hydrating and you’ll have plenty of time to let it sink in and do its job (you know, like fighting wrinkles and brightening skin). 3.Pack items like your laptop in smaller bags so you have options when you’re out and about. You don’t want to have to lug your carry-on bag with you everywhere, do you? 4.Store your power cords in an old sunglass case. It’ll keep you from losing your mind.  5.Ditch the blush, brightener, and lipstick in favor of an all-in-one makeup product (like W3LL People’s Universalist stick). Major space saver and you now have an excuse to pick up a beauty souvenir while you’re away.

Is The Memory Maker Photo Package Worth The Price?

The Memory Maker photo package offered from Disney World is a great addition to your vacation, but it does come with a price tag! The UNLIMITED digital downloads can be connected directly to your My DIsney Experience App with only the touch of your MagicBand!

The cost of the Memory Maker can cause sticker shock at first, but in our opinion is well worth it! The quality of the photos is incredible! Special character moments are captured during meet and greets and are truly once in a life time moments! 

Additional perks of this photo package are On-Ride photo and videos for rides like Splash Mountain (which an agency favorite). Character dining at places such as Ohana and Chef Mickey’s are included as well. 

Magic Shots are a HUGE selling point for our family! Photos will have special “overlays” or photo frames that you will not even know about until later! I have the sweetest photo of my husband and I at Christmas with him “holding” mistle…
If you are planning on going on a Disney vacation with little ones, remember those children need time to unwind.  Why not let them take a break and play?  Your children can have a great time at Animal Kingdom in DinoLand at the BoneYard playground!  Let your children be a kid!

A Cool Quick Service Restaurant that Families Will Enjoy: PizzeRizzo’s in Hollywood Studios...
PizzeRizzo’s (formerly Toy Story’s Pizza Planet) has been taken over by the Muppets! It serves really good pizza, salad, and cupcakes. Take the stairs to the dining hall upstairs. You will find a separate room at the end that’s a dance hall - complete with a dance floor, music, and lights. Parents and children alike can showcase their dance moves!

Symphony of the Seas
Royal Caribbean’s newest ship is also the largest cruise ship by volume. Let’s look at the numbers: 1,188 feet long  22 restaurants 24 pools 2,759 cabins 6,680 guests, approximately 2,200-some crew members  18 decks 24 elevators 7 neighborhoods 10-story serpentine slide
For entertainment, you can watch the unbelievable acrobatics and high dives at the AquaTheatre. Maybe you’d prefer to see a freshened rendition of “Hairspray” in the Royal Theatre.
Royal Caribbean has left no stone untouched in the detail department. They have the “Ultimate Family Suite.” These two-level suites are dressed in bold colors and include some unique amenities. How about a slide in the room? Done. What about a private cinema? Done. Maybe a ping pong table and a LEGO wall? You got it. Now that the kids are entertained, let’s see what is in store for the parents. I think the private balcony and whirlpool will fit the bill.

Universal YUMMINESS
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium at Universal CityWalk is absolutely delicious and one of the best ways to cool down after a hot Orlando day!! The full menu at Toothsome is excellent with savory options such as salads, soups, flatbreads, burgers, seafood, steaks and so much more. It offers a very unique atmosphere that features a spacious sweet shop and restaurant with a playful 19th-Century steampunk theme and unusual character visits. However, they truly save the best for last!! The Emporium's dessert menu is divine!! Some of the specialty milkshakes include Peanut indulgence, Salted Dulce de Leche, Chocolate banana brain freeze,  and Strawberry shortcake! They also offer unreal Sundaes and classic desserts such as Crème Brulee and Chocolate bread pudding.

Let us help you plan your next trip to Universal Orlando to smaple some of these amazing desserts!!

Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom
You may not automatically think of Disney World as being a place where adults can relax and have a good time but we are here to tell you that this is absolutely true! If you plan it correctly - which is our specialty - you can have a wonderful adults-only vacation!! The best thing about this, in our opinion, is the vast array of food and drink offerings for adults! One of our most recent finds (and a new favorite) is the Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom!! Located right next door to Tiffin's restaurant, it's a perfect spot for a late afternoon drink or pre-dinner drinks and snacks! 
The Nomad Lounge offers both indoor and outdoor seating, their patio area is amazing! Food is exactly what you'd think, small plates and appetizers that all fit within the exotic menu theme. The drinks, however, are the highlight! Cocktails are all inspired by different regions ranging from Asia to Africa to South America! You can also find…
Did you know that Walt Disney World isn’t just about Mickey Mouse, Princesses, and Theme Parks? They're also home to one of the most amazing Water Parks in Orlando; Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. Take a break from the crowds and heat of Orlando by cooling off in the crystal clear waters of this amazing park.  Typhoon Lagoon is also home to Miss Adventure Falls, it’s newest attraction. You and your family will surely have a blast making waves of fun in their spectacular wave pool, zipping down invigorating water slides, and lounging around in the lazy river! Be sure not to miss out on this must do Water Park, it'll be a really COOL time! 

With all the hype of the parking fees we wanted to remind you of the numerous  wonderful reasons to stay on Disney property. Our list could go on and on, but we feel like Disney Parks blog said, or sang, it best with this catchy tune...  https://youtu.be/wJ34mT-oiT0
