    Disney World Resort Quiz! Which Resort is the Best for YOU?

    I am at the point in my Disney traveling career (does it count as a career? I think so) that I have a goal to stay at each resort on property! Not only is it for me, but it is also for YOU! Each new resort comes with a new post about that resort and our experiences on that trip (Or even a Disney World resort quiz!)! You’re welcome 😜 But maybe your new to this whole Disney thing, or maybe you just need a break down of what each resort offers to fit your needs! Instead of reading article after article and looking at pictures until you forget what…

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

    It is hard to argue that the value resorts have some of the best Disney theming on property to make you feel like you are in the middle of the Disney Magic. The value resorts are where you are going to find the larger than life themes straight out of your favorite Disney movies, and Disney’s Art of Animation resort is (in my opinion) the best themed value resort on property. Art of Animation is, on average, the most expensive of the value resorts since 3/4 of the rooms are suites that accommodate 6 guests verses the 1/4 that are standard 4 guest rooms. When we stayed at Art of…

    Renting Disney Vacation Club Points – Save Money on Deluxe Villas

    Before Jesse and I became vacation club members in 2018, we had to find other ways to afford deluxe resorts at Disney World. When we went on our honeymoon we wanted to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (read about this resort here); however we weren’t sure we could afford it with all of the wedding costs. At the time, my sister was already a DVC member so we talked with them about possibly booking with them but unfortunately they didn’t have any points to spare for the year. So I did some research and found out that renting Disney Vacation Club points through 3rd party companies was the answer…

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

    To date (and likely forever), Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is my ABSOLUTE favorite resort on property. Now I haven’t had the opportunity to stay at all of the Disney resorts yet, but come on now..who could pass up giraffes right outside their window!?! Plus it is the closest I’ve come to a trip to Africa so far in my life. Jesse and I have stayed at both locations on the Animal Kingdom Resort property, Jambo House which is the main resort location and Kidani Village which is the Disney Vacation Club resort. Our very first time staying at a Disney World resort was at Kidani Village for our honeymoon. I…

    Why You Should Stay at a Disney Resort (COVID-19 edition)

    Well, in our current situations of COVID-19, whether you are an essential worker or in quarantine, there is one thing we all are struggling with and that is Disney withdrawal! Disney World closed due to the pandemic less than 2 weeks before my family and I were set to be in Disney World. We were devastated, and although we 100% understand and would much prefer to reschedule instead of taking the risk of coming in contact with the virus..it didn’t make us any less bummed by the situation. Typically when it is just my husband and I traveling, we stay on Disney property; however, this time around we were traveling…

    It’s that time of year again..time to head off to another Disney World vacation! This year is going to be different though, in many ways! For the past few years it has just been Jesse and I on our Disney trips. We now have our newest little mouse who will be just over 3 months old for his first trip to Disney! We will also be traveling with my mom, which will be our first family vacation since my dad passed away, and my sister and her husband will also be bringing my niece and nephew for their first Disney trip as well. With such a large group, as well…

    Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

    Welcome Home! We took our very first Disney vacation as Disney Vacation Club members in March 2019! We bought into DVC in August of 2018 and our home resort is Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at the Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. This was our very first time staying at the Wilderness Lodge and it was a beautiful and tranquil resort that we are so glad to call our second home! We started off the trip with a night at Saratoga Springs resort since we decided to come down to Florida a day early. After we finished our Wild Africa Trek tour (you can read about that here), we headed over to…

    Disney’s All Star Movies Resort

    Jesse and I made a last minute Disney trip in August for our second wedding anniversary.  We were certainly not planning it as we had a trip planned to New Hampshire and Maine in September with his family.  Needless to say though when he came home from work and told me he was able to get a few days off the week of our anniversary and that I could plan a trip; he knew I would do anything I could to plan a Disney trip within our budget! And that’s where Disney’s All Star Movies Resort come in! I was able to book a 4 night, 5 day trip at…
