When you are sailing onboard your Disney Cruise, take time to pamper yourself and make a reservation at the SENSES Spa.  The full service spa includes massages, manicures, pedicures and salon services. Senses Spa

When cruising, I recommend treating yourself to the Rainforest Deluxe Cruise pass.  This fantastic spa package is available on all sailings and includes unlimited access to the scented showers, aroma steam, sauna rooms and private jacuzzis.  Depending on your Disney Cruise ship, you can also enjoy the warm loungers that overlook the ocean (Disney Dream and Fantasy cruise ships) or relax and unwind with the tranquil sounds of water in an exclusive relaxation room (Disney Magic and Wonder cruise ships).  This package also includes scented body scrubs of your choice to use to exfoliate while enjoying the Rainforest showers and saunas.

Senses SpaNo appointments are necessary for you to use your Rainforest Spa package.  Simply check-in with your stateroom key at the front desk.  Your attendant will give you your scented body scrubs and loofa, as well as your Spa bracelet that allows you access to the Rainforest.  Next, you will head to the locker room where you will change into your swimwear and find cotton robes and waterproof sandals (if you didn’t bring your own).  Lockers are available free of charge so you can secure your personal belongings while you enjoy the Rainforest.

On the Disney Dream and Fantasy, the Rainforest Room has the Laconium (a dry sauna), the Caladium (a hot steam room) and the Hammam (a large, tiled steam room that is not as hot than the regular steam room), four scented showers with multiple “rain” programs, numerous heated loungers with views of the sea and two hot tubs on a private deck overlooking the water. Senses Spa

In the Rainforest Room on the Magic and Wonder, there are three tiled saunas, each having a different temperature.  You will find open showers with different scented “rain” programs.  Those amazing, tiled heated loungers are also available to relax, unwind and read a book if you desire.

Rainforest packages are limited and can be purchased for individuals or couples. Pricing varies based on your length of your cruise and passes can be purchased for a single day or for the length of your cruise.   You must be at least 18 years of age to utilize the spa services.

A Disney cruise is the perfect way to relax and unwind.  A trip to The Rainforest at the Senses Spa is another dash of “pixie dust” on a memorable Disney vacation.

Photo Spots on AttractionsAs a huge fan of the Memory Maker photo package, I want to be sure to get some fun pictures from the rides that offer PhotoPass at Walt Disney World. Pictures are great memories of a vacation and these rides will give you enjoyable moments to look back on. Be prepared for that picture perfect moment!

Magic Kingdom

  • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin – the room right before this picture is near the end of the ride and has a video of Zurg’s ship moving from side to side as you gather your last points. Your vehicle locks into a forward facing direction and then the picture is taken. Be sure that little faces are between the two blasters or their faces might be hidden in the picture. Photo Spots on Attractions
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – not one but two pictures are taken on this ride. The first picture is taken as you come out of the mine and into the light for the first drop. The next picture is taken later in the series of turns as you approach the end of the ride.
  • Space Mountain – when the ride first starts, you head down a tube of flashing blue lights. Right after the tunnel, you take a sharp turn and the picture is taken right after that turn.
  • Splash Mountain – your moment is captured right as you start the 50 foot drop. Say cheese! Photo Spots on Attractions

 Epcot

  • Frozen Ever After – part of this ride is experienced backwards. Your boat turns forwards when you see Marshmallow and the Snowgies and this is the time to get ready for your perfect pose. Your picture is captured as you start the decent that is also viewed from outside the ride.
  • Test Track – get ready to pose as you break through the barrier to the outdoor speed portion of this ride.

Hollywood Studios

  • Rock n Roller Coaster3, 2, 1, go! Not only is the countdown indicating the start of the ride, but it’s also a countdown to your picture taken at 57 mph.
  • Tower of Terrorwith no two rides the same, be ready for your picture as you are pulled down the hotel’s elevator shaft.
    Photo Spots on Attractions

Animal Kingdom

  • Expedition Everestthis roller coaster takes your picture after you turn back forwards and drop outside the mountain.
  • Dinosaurwatch out for the huge dinosaur on the right hand side near the end of this ride as your picture captures your reaction to it looming over you.

The front rows of the ride will give you the best picture of your family. If there are people behind you, don’t put your arms up as there is a good chance you will hide the people’s faces behind you. Have fun experimenting with poses. The memories you bring home will bring smiles to all for years to come.

Character Dining for the Entire Family

You finally got your Disney reservations squared away and it’s time to make your dining reservations. Your little Princess wants to dine with a real Princess but your Prince is not thrilled with that idea and you are not too thrilled at the thought of using two dining credits for a meal. You still have options! And 1900 Park Fare is one of those great options! 1900 Park Fare Dining

1900 Park Fare is located at the beautiful Grand Floridian resort. The Grand Floridian resort is accessible via monorail or boat launch from Magic Kingdom. The Grand Floridian also provides spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom theme park. Once arriving at 1900 Park Fare, you will have a photograph taken in front of a beautiful mural in the foyer. This photo is included with Memory Maker or you may choose to purchase it. Inside the restaurant, you will see the décor represents the Victorian era. Once seated, a waiter/waitress will come to your table and explain that the characters will come to your table once and only once. This means you will want to be at your table when it’s your turn. It would be best to head straight to the buffet if the characters are not close to your table.

1900 Park Fare DiningSpeaking of the buffet- it’s amazing! It provides a wide variety of options that will satisfy children and adults alike. While you are enjoying your fine cuisine, Cinderella and Prince Charming will make their way to the center of the room and entertain you with a beautifully, elegant dance. Once they have finished their dance, they will make their way out to the tables. Cinderella is as beautiful as ever and Prince Charming is as charming as expected. However, Lady Tremaine and her daughters usually steal the show. They provide a lot of entertainment, and I think this helps the fathers and brothers enjoy this character meal as well!

By having the characters come to your table, it provides a great opportunity for meet-n-greets as well as photo opportunities. Just remember your photos are not going to have the best backdrop. There will be lots of people and sometimes the buffet in the background. Try positioning yourself so these things are at a minimum. Once the characters have visited your table, be sure to check out the desserts!

As you can see this is a great family option for dining with the Princesses. And the value is amazing if you are on the dining plan!

Boma is located inside the Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.  This restaurant has a wonderful décor and African drummers provide a lively authentic atmosphere at the entrance.  Dinner is served buffet style with a wide variety of food choices and included is a soft-drink selection with refills.  Drink orders are taken by a waitress.  You may want to enjoy premium drink options with an African flair for an additional cost.  Disney characters do not make appearances here, but the restaurant provides character and charm.

Boma is paradise for food lovers.  You will need a big table to provide plenty of room to try all of the unique dishes along with the classics.  The food has an African flair and provides a unique dining experience.  A variety of favorite American classics are offered as well.  The food has amazing flavor without being overwhelming.  It is one of my top five favorite restaurants on the Disney property. Dinner at Boma Animal Kingdom Lodge

Do you have picky eaters in your family?  We did!  We avoided Boma for years because we had small children.  Once they became teenagers, we became adventurous and tried Boma for “the experience” and it did not disappoint!  It is on our “must visit” list every time we go to Disney.

Even if you do have picky eaters in your family, don’t despair!  Boma has so many choices; there is truly something for everyone.  Foods are grouped into sections:  salads, soups, hummus, meats, fresh fruit, desserts plus much more.  Two of my personal favorite sections are soups and desserts.  The best advice I can give to everyone whether you consider yourself a picky or adventurous eater is to PACE YOURSELF!

It is best to take a small portion of a variety of foods on your first trip.  You can always go back and fill up on your favorites.  There are less adventurous items to keep everyone happy.  My husband and son love the meat carving station for their hearty appetites.  There are safe options for kids to enjoy such as baked chicken legs, macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes.  Mealie Bread is a Boma specialty along with Coconut Curry Chicken Soup.  Are you a pasta lover?  You will find Penne pasta with Meatballs and Marinara sauce.

Did you save room for dessert?  Probably not, but you NEED to have some anyway!  A variety of pastries are offered.   Warm apple cobbler, banana and butterscotch bread pudding with the options of vanilla and rum sauce should not be missed.  Be sure to try the coffee tarts and the zebra domes for something different.  In addition, chocolate brownies and cookies are on the menu too!

Boma provides family fun and you do not need to purchase a park ticket to enjoy this adventure.  Advance reservations are recommended so contact your Me and The Mouse travel specialist to make this a part of your Disney dining experience.

I’m a Disney purists. I love the history, the films and of course the theme parks! I think no one does it as well as Disney. With that said, two years ago, I had the opportunity to get a private look at Universal Studios and especially Harry Potter areas of the parks. What I found was a bit surprising and amazing. Universal Studios vs Disney

As a child I had visited Universal Hollywood. I grew up watching Nickelodeon on TV and it was great seeing the shows and rides that were featured. I remember the original Back to the Future ride and the backstage tour it was great but on that same trip I also went to Disneyland. To me, Disneyland is the center of all theme parks. It’s where it all started so at the time there was no comparing the two. Disney outmatched Universal – period.

Fast forward a bunch of years. I visit Universal Studios Florida. It’s okay but no Disney World. It has some great roller coasters at Islands of Adventure and some shows but I was like “ehhh it’s ok.” Now fast forward few more years after The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens and what can I say now – WOW! It changed everything. I said something I never thought I would. “I’ve never seen something like this at a Disney park.” It’s beautifully done, well designed and incredible. That is all being said from a person, who at the time, had never seen a Harry Potter movie! Universal Studios vs Disney

The folks at Universal have done a great job transforming that park. It’s a full fledged resort with hotels, great food, shopping and world class rides. I will say their rides, in my opinion, tilt toward older children but it is still a great family destination. I think it’s worth exploring one or two days or even staying at one of their resorts.

What I wanted to point out in this blog is that I’m a person who absolutely loves Disney – my white blood cells are in the shape of Mickey Mouse! Disney will always be the best in my eyes but I also think the park a few miles down the interstate is pretty good. Check it out and see for yourself and for those of you like me let’s just keep it to ourselves and not tell Mickey! 😉

La Cava del TequilaAs much as I enjoy the tradition and nostalgia of long standing attractions at Walt Disney World, I also enjoy trying something new!  Somehow, over the many trips, I missed the opportunity to enjoy , until now!

I was planning a girls weekend at the Food and Wine Festival and stumbled upon information about this hidden gem!  I was instantly intrigued! We knew this would certainly be at the top of our list!

The entrance is just inside to the right in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot.  When we arrived there was a lengthy line, but after all of our research, we knew it was worth the wait.  After being in the line for only a minute or two, we realized we were in the line to get a margarita to go!  We then noticed there was a cast member near the entrance and she was seating guests inside.  We were immediately seated!

La Cava del Tequila The seating area was very intimate and a great place to cool off!  The cast member who greeted us asked if we were “on twitter”?  He then told us if we “followed” @cavadeltequila we could purchase the “house” tequila for only $5!  We each ordered a margarita and the “house” tequila.  As I have come to learn, tequila is not only an addition to a drink, but can be sipped.  Our tequila arrived with a side of tomato juice, as well as a slice of lime and salt.  We both ordered a traditional margarita on the rocks, and I will admit, it was amazing.  It was made with fresh juices and had the classic salted rim.  We also ordered the queso and tortilla chips!  They do offer a trio of dips that include the queso, guacamole and fresh salsa. They had an extensive tequila menu (I had no idea there were so many types)!  My friend who is a tequila aficionado enjoyed the opportunity to sample different tequilas.  Before we knew it, we had been there for 3 hours!!!!  We enjoyed a very relaxed afternoon. My husband and I also made sure to stop in here as well on our recent weekend away.  It did not disappoint either time!!! La Cava del Tequila

La Cava del Tequila is open every day from 11:30am-9:30pm.  Advanced reservations are not accepted.  If you are seeking a fantastic and possibly unique (avocado, pineapple, jalapeno and many more) margarita this is the place for you!  Don’t forget you also have the opportunity to purchase a fresh made margarita to enjoy as you explore world showcase.  We are now hooked!  This will be a part of our tradition and we will continue to make sure to stop in for a delicious margarita!

Jock Lindseys Hangar BarAfter a busy day of exploring the parks, sometimes it’s nice to take a break with a relaxing dinner, unique drinks and great atmosphere.  Jock Lindsey’s Hanger Bar is just the place.  Not only does it not take reservations and has a water front view, but the menu of eats and drinks are specially themed as the ex-home of Indiana Jones’ side kick.

Located in Disney Springs, the family friendly Hanger Bar is for walk-ups only.  There are no reservations taken and none needed.  While it has a water front location, there are plenty of tables inside the building as well as outside on the water.  If you’re lucky, you may be able to sit inside the helmet of a scuba diver or sit in the boat that’s on the side of the Hanger Bar that’s lifted above the water.  If you are sitting outside, you will be able to take in the performances that happen on the stage next to the Hanger Bar. Jock Lindseys Hangar Bar

The menu has some unique themed food and drink items.  In staying with the Indiana Jones theme, you can enjoy Rolling Boulder Sliders (brisket meatballs with tomato-bacon jam), Lao Che’s Revenge (Asian sticky wings) or Brody’s Brats. While it has all the usual beverages that a restaurant would have available, why not try something a bit more adventurous, such as the Fountain of Youth, Pancho’s Margarita or The Scottish Professor, a snappy blend of Scotch whiskey and gin. Jock Lindseys Hangar Bar

Feel free to stay as long as you’d like and enjoy the scenery inside and the entertainment outside.  It’s the perfect spot to refuel and refresh so you are ready to enjoy more of the parks the next day!

At Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, most major attractions have a strict ‘no loose items’ policy – and that encompasses change, wallets, purses of any kind, backpacks, sunglasses, hats, etc. There are a few solutions to this:  asking a party member to hold everything while you enjoy the attraction is one solution, but a better one is to utilize Short-Term LockersUniversal Studios

Various locations throughout the theme parks, strategically located close to attractions with these requirements, will house banks of lockers with a digital kiosk.  Using the kiosk allows you to ‘rent’ a short-term locker by either using a fingerprint and code, or your theme park admission ticket.  You will then be assigned a locker for your belongings, which are roughly big enough for a standard sized backpack.

What’s great about these lockers?  They are FREE for the first hour, typically.  The FREE use of the locker is based off of the current attraction wait time, the time it takes the ride to operate, with a cushion for you to get off the attraction, shop the gift shop, maybe find a restroom – regardless of your plan, there is a good window of time to utilize this FREE service.  

  • Want to use it longer?  No worries!  If you exceed that free time, lockers cost $3 per half hour, up to $20 max per day.   
  • Just missed your window by a few minutes and won’t need your locker any longer?  Contact the nearest Universal Team Member for assistance.

Some tips:

  • Utilize a lanyard to keep your theme park ticket on your person at all times. It can easily be tucked in your shirt.
  • Lockers near Harry Potter attractions are not quite large enough for wand boxes – some larger lockers are available, but are in short supply.
  • HP Forbidden Journey – you will pass through metal detectors, so be sure everything is off your person!
  • Most attractions will allow you to keep a rain poncho on, since it is worn like clothing
  • Lockers are available at Thrill Rides. Other attractions do not require them!

So where exactly can you find these lockers?

Universal Studios Florida Free Short-Term Lockers

  • Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit
  • Revenge of the Mummy
  • MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack
  • Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

Islands of Adventure Free Short-Term Lockers

  • The Incredible Hulk Coaster
  • Dragon Challenge
  • Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Using the lockers has always made my visits to Universal so much easier.  Free to a minimal fee to ride a few attractions without worrying about my ‘stuff’ is a very positive thing!

If you would like to add an Universal Day to your Disney World trip, contact your agent today!

Viking River CruiseMy family recently enjoyed a family reunion onboard a Viking River Cruise on the Rhine River sailing from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland.  Viking made the journey worry free and easy, so we could enjoy your time together and not have to worry about any of the details. It was a first-class experience and exceeded our expectations.

This was the perfect vacation for a large family that included members in their 80’s and individuals who had never been to Europe.  Many people associate river cruising with grandparents, but I would estimate that the average age on our ship were in their 50’s with quite a few in their 30’s. Viking River Cruise

For us, there were many benefits to sailing with Viking:

  1. Traveling along the Rhine immersed us in the history and beauty of the region. The onboard activities include local musicians, dining to give you a taste of the local culture and speakers that discuss the local region.
  2. Each day had one included excursion at each port of call and optional excursions that we could add-on. The additional excursion options offered a variety of activity levels, so there was something for everyone. We were transported in luxury motor coaches.
  3. We had plenty of time on our own to explore cities. If our included excursions were in the morning, it gave us an opportunity to get the lay of the land so we felt comfortable venturing out on our own after lunch or dinner. Viking River Cruise
  4. The tour guides were exceptional and the groups were also well managed. Those that wanted to go at a slower pace or needed a little extra assistance were put into separate groups.
  5. Our meals were fabulous with all wine and beer included at lunch and dinner. We also had 3 members of our family with dietary needs and they were accommodated beautifully.
  6. We were on one of Vikings Longships, which is elegant, modern and provided a comfortable environment. The 190-passenger ship was small and intimate and all staterooms are outside cabins. We never had more than 2 flights of stairs to get anywhere, which made moving about the ship very convenient.

 

We will definitely enjoy a future vacation to discover other regions of Europe. The Viking hospitality has us sold.
