    Disney Cruise Line

    Returning in early 2017, Disney Cruise Line Guests can celebrate the legendary adventures and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga during Star Wars Day at Sea. Get a quick look in this video!

    New in 2017, the Disney Fantasy special sailings expand to both eastern and western Caribbean itineraries and nearly double in number to 15 cruises. During this day-long celebration, Star Wars Day at Sea combines the power of the Force and the magic of Disney for an out-of-this-galaxy cruise experience unlike any other.

    Each sailing features a full day of dark side and light side fun, including official appearances of Star Wars characters, a deck party and fireworks, Star Wars-themed family and youth activities, at-sea screenings of Star Wars films, unique food and beverage offerings, and special merchandise.

    Throughout the day, Star Wars Younglings, Padawans and Jedi Masters alike can enjoy the immersive and intergalactic entertainment, including a deck party and fireworks display, exclusive event merchandise, and specialty Star Wars-themed food and beverage items.

    Characters from across the Star Wars galaxy will also be onboard for interactions, photos and also may be seen patrolling the decks. And, in “Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple,” Force-sensitive children learn the ways of the Jedi and use their new-found skill in a final face off with Darth Vader.

    Star Wars Day at Sea will be on Disney Fantasy seven-night cruises sailing from Port Canaveral on Jan. 7, 14, 21, 28; Feb. 4, 11, 18, 25; March 4, 11, 18, 25; April 1, 8 and 15, 2017.

  • Why you should stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel

    9/14/2016 8:53:34 PM Link |  | Add comment

    When people plan their Disney vacation they sometimes ask if it is better to stay on Disney grounds or save money by staying off Disney grounds. I always encourage people to stay at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and this is why:

























    ~ It is SO MUCH more convenient

    You are much closer to the parks and it is much more convenient. Trust me on this.

    ~ There is transportation to and from the parks
    There is transportation via bus or monorail to and from the Walt Disney World parks, water parks, and Disney Springs. This saves you money in parking. Plus it is much easier than packing the kids up in the car seats and then unloading them again. 

    ~ You get the whole Disney experience
    The Walt Disney World Resorts hotels are so much fun. They have the best rooms, pools, and amenities. Plus the whole Disney theme is everywhere which makes the whole experience magical. 

    ~ You can get good deals
    You can get good deals on Walt Disney World hotels. In fact, right now there is a great deal going on. If you book now through October 8th you can get 20% off select rooms at Walt Disney World Resort hotels! The travel windows are:

  • Cruise Vs. All-Inclusive

    9/6/2016 8:57:34 PM Link |  | Add comment

    One question we get asked a lot is what the better vacation is: A cruise verses an all-inclusive vacation. Well, to be honest, I love both! There are pro's for both vacations AND we can help you find great deals on the vacation you choose. Here are a few tips on how to decide between a cruise and an all-inclusive:

    Here are a few pro's for going on a cruise vacation:

    • You get to visit several different locations in one vacation! 
    • Many of the ports are right out of the United States so you don't spend as much in travel.
    • The entertainment is phenominal on cruises! Everything from magic to comedy- you will laugh and be amazed! 
    • There is usually a casino on board a cruise so if you like to gamble this is the right vacation for you. 

    Here are some pro's for going on an all-inclusive vacation:

    • Many times the excursions are included (not always but more often than on cruises)
    • Drinks are usually included in your price. 
    • If you like the beach and want to spend as much time as possible at the beach this is the right vacation for you. 

    There are so many other awesome reasons why both a cruise and an all-inclusive resort are the perfect vacation. It all comes down to your preferences and what you are looking for in your vacation.
