Resort Studio Room Tour at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

I didn't think Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa could get any grander, but then I stayed in one of their Resort Studio rooms. These are the newest rooms at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
The Resort Studio rooms are located in the Big Pine Key building which is very close to the main building. The location makes it very convenient to get to the dining options and transportation. Not only is the building close to the main building but it's also across from the Courtyard Pool and Courtyard Pool Bar.

When you enter Big Pine Key, you're greeted with a simply lovely lobby. The furniture is super cute and gives off a very cozy, chic vibe. There's lots of pastel colors with floral prints and touches of nature.

The chic, nature inspired vibe continues down the hallways and into the Resort Studio rooms. I couldn't love these rooms more!
Entering the room, there's a desk with bench and mirror on one side and a small coffee station on the other side. The main difference between the Resort Studio and Deluxe Studio rooms is it's missing the small kitchenette area. What it has instead is this small area with beverage cooler, Keurig coffee maker and a microwave. As a DVC member, these rooms feel a lot more like a normal hotel room than the Deluxe Studios you may be used to. That's not a bad thing but it's just different.

Across from the desk area, you'll find the bathroom with a gorgeous mirror, two sinks, plenty of counterspace and towels underneath. The toilet and shower are in a separate water closet allowing for multiple people to get ready at the same time.

The main area of the room is very spacious. The rooms sleep up to 5 adults with 2 queen beds and a sofa that folds down into a day bed. There's a small nightstand between the 2 beds and there's also a small shelf next to each bed where you can put your phone or glasses. There are USB outlets at each location which is really convenient. 
There's a closet next to the beds with plenty of space to store your luggage and clothes. You'll also find robes, hangers, suitcase stand, extra pillow and blanket, and a safe to store your valuables. There's also a dresser under the TV with additional USB outlets for charging.

One of my favorite details in the room is the chandelier. The chandelier is gold with glass birds and if you look closely, you'll spot one of the birds is actually a penguin. 
The views available with the Resort Studio rooms are a Standard, Lagoon or Theme Park View. Standard View rooms include views of courtyards, landscaping, monorail or parking area. Lagoon View rooms offer views of the Seven Seas Lagoon and the Theme Park View rooms offer views of Magic Kingdom Park. We were lucky enough to book a Theme Park View on our recent stay and it was a real treat to be able to look out our window and see the Magic Kingdom. At night, we could see the fireworks and the Electrical Water Pageant from our patio.

If the gorgeous rooms aren't enough of a reason to stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, it's one of the monorail resorts which means you're just a quick ride away from the Magic Kingdom and a hop, skip and a jump away from Epcot by means of transferring monorails at the Transportation & Ticket Center. If you plan on spending a lot of time at the Magic Kingdom, there's also a walking path and a ferry boat so you have a few transportation options to get to the park. Count that as another major bonus of staying at this resort!

Don't worry if you aren't a Disney Vacation Club member. Although DVC members have access to these rooms you don't have to be DVC to book. The general public can also book the Resort Studio rooms as long as there is availability.
If you couldn't tell, I am absolutely in love with the Resort Studio rooms and would 100% stay in these rooms on any Walt Disney World vacation. Between the gorgeous, spacious rooms and the resort's location, it's hard to beat!

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
