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!

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

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!

Remy Brunch Review

On a recent Disney Cruise with a dear friend, we treated ourselves to a brunch at Remy. At the time of writing, this adult only dining option starts at $75 per person. There is a dress code and even at brunch guests definitely dress up for this dining experience. We got all gussied up after rolling out of the oh so comfortable beds on the Disney Fantasy, and went upstairs.  We were quickly escorted to our seat while being given a brief synopsis of the history of the restaurant. Our table had a lovely water view and if one looked hard enough, a small amount of the AquaDuck! We were given a water menu and asked what kind we would like. Simply put, if I am going to indulge in a beverage during an already expensive meal, it's going to be an adult libation nine times out of ten. For that reason, I told our server that I would be happy with tap and so did my dining companion who whispered in my ear she could not justify $15 on breakfast water. We were quickly served complimentary champag
