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!

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

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
