Easter Fun! Chocolate Eggs at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort

Happy Spring, Disney Fans!

     I hope everyone is finally getting a little warmer weather. Here in Orlando, the first day of Spring brought yet another dip into the chilly 60's, but now we are back to our more seasonable 80's. You poor Northerners! I hope you are thawing out! You could always head this way!

     This past weekend was the end of my kiddo's Spring Break, so we hit up Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for our annual visit to see the hand-carved chocolate eggs in the lobby. Every year, the pastry chefs at the Grand Floridian go nuts, making these huge chocolate eggs come to life with scenes from favorite Disney movies and more. They are amazing! Some of the best eggs get saved from year to year, so there are usually some repeats from previous years, but also several newbies. Would you like to check them out? Here you go! (I apologize in advance for the blurry ones. It was hard to see in the lobby because the sun was coming in so brightly, so I didn't see how the pics came out until after we left.)

     Aren't they amazing? They really are a beautiful sight to behold and really incredible when you think about the painstaking work that had to be put into each one. The eggs will be on display until April 10th. If you don't get a chance to see them this year, you can make plans to see them in 2019, when you reach out to my friends at Kingdom Konsultant Travel to help you plan your next Disney vacation! 

     Until next time, have a magical week!

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
