Artist Palette at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

Sometimes you just want a quick, easy but delicious meal, and the quick service Artist Palette at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort certainly delivers! After a long travel day, we did Mobile Order to pick up a quick variety of food for our family to snack on as we got settled into our room.  Everything was fresh and tasty.  The kids couldn't wait to dig in.  

Disney isn't exactly known for great pizza, so we were pleasantly surprised by both of these offerings.  They were gobbled up quickly, we probably could have eaten another one they were so good.  
Margherita Pizza: Tomato Sauce, Roma Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, Roasted Garlic Oil
Pepperoni Pizza
I wanted to try an actual entrĂ©e as well, so I went for the braised meatballs because it sounded so good and comforting after a long day.  Again, I was surprised at how good this was.  We were honestly not expecting much being it close to closing time when we arrived, but everything was hot and fresh and full of flavor. 
Braised Meatballs: Pork and Beef Meatballs cooked in Pomodoro Sauce served with Polenta, Sweet-and-Sour Peppers and Onions, and Grilled Baguette
Having stayed here and eaten here before, I knew I loved their house-made chips and decided to add some on to nibble on.  They are so crispy and salted just right.

And of course, I wanted to wrap up the meal with a signature cupcake.  Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this was delightful.  The photo is a bit deceiving, the cupcake was quite large and I think three of us ended up sharing it!
Bullseye Cupcake: Chocolate Cupcake filled with Peanut Butter Mousse, topped with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Buttercream, with a Bullseye White Chocolate Coin
Artist Palette is the Quick Service Restaurant at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.  Breakfast options include Mickey waffles, shrimp and grits, quiche and breakfast sandwiches.  Lunch and Dinner offer a variety of entrees, pizzas and sandwiches.  There are also beverages, desserts and snacks available here throughout the day.

Photo Tour and Deck Plan: Disney Fantasy

The Disney Fantasy took its maiden voyage in 2012 and until 2022, was the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. It's the sister ship to the Disney Dream so you'll see many similarities between the two ships. The Disney Fantasy is an absolutely gorgeous ship, boasting an Art Nouveau style. The ship has 14 decks, 1,250 staterooms, is 1,115 feet in length and weighs 130,000 gross tons. We'll tour the ship starting from Deck 1 up to Deck 14, going from Aft to Forward. Let's start our photo tour! Deck 1 Deck 1 is where you'll find the Health Center. It's also where you can exit the ship to board a tender at Ports of Call that require ships to anchor offshore.  Deck 2 Deck 2 is where you'll find one of the three main dining rooms, Enchanted Garden.  The restaurant transforms throughout dinner, changing from day to night I love these booths! You can also find staterooms, a Midship Detective Agency kiosk and the Vista Gallery showcasing Disney artwork.  Deck

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
