It’s All in the Disney Details - Carpets


If you have ever been to a Disney Park, you have seen Disney’s impeccable attention to detail in every attraction, restaurant and gift shop.  Those details are what sets them apart and adds that special magical quality to every Disney vacation.  The details don’t stop at the theme parks but continue throughout each and every Disney Resort. 
Carpet at Disney's BoardWalk Resort

Last time we took a look at a seemingly ordinary object, the trash can, so it should be no surprise that today, we look at another often overlooked element of every Disney Resort…the carpet.  You may think of a carpet as something you simply walk on to get to your room but it’s actually got a lot of character.

The carpet in the hallway at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort continues the boardwalk theme with a design that includes a Ferris wheel and a rollercoaster.  If you look closely, you can see that Mickey is riding in the front car of the roller coaster!

The carpet at Disney’s Beach Club Resort includes elements from the beach and the sea.  There’s a hidden Mickey made out of bubbles and some characters from The Little Mermaid.

At Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, the carpets in the hallway enhance the nautical theme.  They are full of anchors, compass roses, nautical stars, helms, ropes and knots.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has a Native American themed carpet in the hallway complete with a not-so-hidden Mickey.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of the most elegant resorts so it makes sense that it has some very fancy carpets but that doesn’t mean they can’t have that Disney element of fun!  When I stayed at this resort in 2009, I noticed some hidden characters in the hallway carpets. Take a look at this hidden Minnie!

The carpet in the rooms at Disney’s All Star Music Resort isn’t as fancy as some of the Deluxe Resort carpets, but it’s still fun!  I love the bright colors and the way the Mickey silhouette is incorporated into the design.  It’s a really fun carpet that goes well with the larger than life icons throughout the grounds of the resort.

Just like their trash cans, Disney carpets are another overlooked detail that are worth a second look. Although you walk on them, they are truly a work of art. Plus, you never know when you might see a hidden Mickey!

Remember, it’s all in the Disney details!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The décor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
