Three Must See 3-D Attractions!


We all know that Walt Disney World offers a wide variety of entertainment, from thrill rides and onstage performances, to 3-D attractions.  You will never be bored on Disney property!  While most 3-D movies at your hometown theaters can be impressive or leave you wanting more, Disney’s offerings of 3-D isn’t just a visual experience!

Narrowing it down to just three must see 3-D attractions is hard for me.  I’m always amazed at what Disney brings next and while 3-D has been around for a long time, there is always something new to make you jump out of your seat cheering for more.  So what are my personal three must see 3-D attractions?

3.   It’s Tough to be a Bug - Located in the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, It’s Tough to be a Bug is full of spiders, beetles, butterflies and many other creepy-crawlies.  No, not the real ones!  Put on your Bug-Eye glasses and join Flick as he hosts the show.  The audience members are now “honorary bugs” and get treated to meeting some of Flick’s friends.  During this 8-minute show, sit back in your seats and relax while you will have some close encounters with hornets, stinkbugs and even Grasshopper from Disney Pixar’s movie A Bug’s Life.  Be prepared for the special effects that include feel and smell.  They may be surprising, but loads of fun!





2.  Toy Story Mania – Head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and down to Pixar Place to find this gem. Grab your 3-D glasses, board your 4-person ride vehicle and let the games begin!  Toy Story characters will host different games that are fun for the entire family!  Think your ride and games are done after that first scene?  Nope! You will then enjoy several more games by going around a track to various scenes.  From throwing pies and rings to bursting balloons and throwing eggs, keep racking up those points!  Can you make it to the day’s leader board?

1.  Mickey’s Philharmagic – Our last stop takes us to Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom.  Take a seat and put on your Opera glasses and be prepared to be entertained!  Donald Duck is told not to touch Mickey Mouse’s Sorcerer’s hat, but we all know that little guy doesn’t listen!  So, he is taken on a whirlwind trip as he is transported into some of the most classic Disney movie scenes!  He visits Ariel, Peter Pan, Aladdin and Simba just to name a few!  As he is entertained by Lumiere, you can smell the pie.  While visiting a scene in Fantasia, you are sprinkled with water.  The scene in Neverland and Agrabah make you feel like you are soaring through the skies as you stare at one of the largest seamless screens in the world!  These are the things that set this attraction apart from the others.  Disney classics, new graphics and the special effects that this show brings, have me not only putting it at the top of this list, but the top of my favorites list in general!
So, next time you visit the Mouse’s house, be sure to take part in each of these attractions.  I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
Is there a 3-D attraction that you cannot miss each Disney vacation?  What is your absolute favorite?

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
