Enchanted Rose Lounge


Disney's Grand Floridian is a beautiful resort in and of itself, but after renovations to some of the public areas a few years ago, they have added the Enchanted Rose Lounge on the second floor of the main building, and it has been popular ever since.  This addition is just gorgeous, with inspiration from Beauty and the Beast, the expanded lounge space is elegant and refined and fits the rest of the d├ęcor at the Grand Floridian.

Disney describes the lounge best:

Step into a realm of elegance and wonder and lounge in 4 sophisticated spaces themed after the Disney live-action film.

Visit this signature lounge for an evening of enchantment, where you can order exquisite appetizers like White Sturgeon Caviar, Truffle Fries and more. The bar itself glows from the light of a magnificent golden chandelier inspired by Belle’s flowing ball gown.

Delightful details from the beloved fairytale are infused throughout the lounge. The formal library showcases classical baroque designs and French furnishings while the whimsical garden room represents the forest surrounding Beast’s castle. For those who prefer to sit under the stars, the outdoor patio evokes the beauty and romance of Beast’s garden terrace.

There are details throughout the lounge area from the library-feel of bookshelves to roses on the coasters.  There is a lot to see and take in here so feel free to take your time and take it all in. We chose to sit just outside the lounge to accommodate our large party at one table, and servers took care of us in this area as well which was a great touch. 
As this is a lounge, the highlight here are of course the beverages!  There's a little something for everyone, as the menu is quite extensive, and my husband was very impressed by the skill of the bartenders to make these craft cocktails.
We all immensely enjoyed our beverages, but the small bites and snacks available were also upscale to match the surroundings and a standout hit.  The truffle fries were a crowd pleaser.  Additionally, they have some fun mocktails for those who aren't of age or just don't want alcohol that evening.

The Enchanted Rose Lounge is typically open from 3:30pm-11pm most days.

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
