How Kingdom Konsultant Agents Are Doing Disney at Home

Many of us are well into social isolation and spending an unprecedented amount of time at home.  Recently we shared some tips for how to "Disney Up" your quarantine, and now we want to share how your Kingdom Konsultant Agents have been doing just that!  Click on each Agent's name to learn more about her, and read on to see how we've been spending our extra time at home.

Ashley

Agent Ashley is all about the games with her boys during this quarantine.  She's pulled out some puzzles and Disney trivia games to keep her mind active while hanging out with her two little ones.  They've also been busy making Disney crafts and watching lots of Disney+!  They might be into the double-digits on amount of times Onward has been watched.  Such a great movie!

Agent Spotlight - Agency Manager Scott

This is Scott VanSyckle, live from the Kingdom Konsultant Travel HQ in northern NJ!  I was asked to do a blog back in 2016, and since that blog was such a roaring success, I figured I’d surprise you and let you all behind the curtain a bit….again!

Why am I writing a blog?  In all honesty…they asked me to write one, so here goes.  While most know that Kingdom Konsultant Travel books Disney-based travel, not many are aware that we can book ANY destination.  In fact, this team of incredible people is constantly striving to improve on their world-class customer service by traveling to new destinations, taking courses, and communicating within the team (SO IMPORTANT.)
You didn’t know this revised blog came with commercials again, did you???

Oga's Cantina at Walt Disney World

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has been crazy popular at Walt Disney World since it opened in 2019.  One of our favorite spots in this new land is Oga's Cantina, a very popular lounge where you can get all kinds of fun drinks and take in the atmosphere of Batuu's hot spot.

Space inside Oga's is limited so advanced reservations are highly recommend and can be made up to 180 days in advance. Even with an advanced reservation, we waited in line outside a bit before we were let in. Oga's Cantina is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and reservations are recommended for all meal periods.

The small location offers a wide variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails that are out of this world.  They also offer a very limited selection of bar bites that vary depending on the meal period.  Here is a sneak peek at the morning menus.  The souvenir mugs are definitely adorable but will be a hit to the wallet if you want to purchase them with their respective drinks.

Tortola Island Drive and Beach Break

On our recent Disney Cruise, we were excited to visit Tortola for the first time. We were looking for an excursion that would give us a tour of the island, provide some time for relaxation and would be something our 3 year old son would enjoy. After reviewing the Port Adventure options on the Disney Cruise Line website, we chose the Island Drive and Beach Break.

After disembarking the ship, we boarded our open-air safari bus for a scenic drive around Tortola through Road Town before we ascended Ridge Road up to Sky World. Make sure to sit on the left side of the bus for the best views of your Disney ship when you're driving up Ridge Road. Unfortunately for me, I ended up on the right side of the vehicle so I struggled to grab a good picture of the ship from the top of the island. I was still able to enjoy the stunning views but I just couldn't get a perfectly composed photo.

While we drove around the island, our driver gave us some history on everything that we were seeing. I …

When should I visit Walt Disney World?

Planning a trip to Walt Disney World can be a large and daunting task. There are so many decisions to make- where to stay, where to eat, how much time to devote to each park, and  more. Before you can dive in to any of these details, the first step is deciding when to visit.

We have many first time guests ask us when is the best time to experience Walt Disney World. While we all have personal favorites, there is no "one size fits all" answer to this question. The truth is, any time is a great time to take a Disney trip- but there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when trying to plan the perfect vacation.

CROWDS
One thing to consider when choosing your travel dates is the crowd level. If you would prefer to visit during a time with low crowds (meaning minimal waits at attractions), then your best bet is to stay away from holidays and school breaks.

Broadly speaking, Disney World has seen lower crowds during certain weeks in September and May. The parks will be at…
