On your drive to Orlando, Florida...more often than not, you have been traveling down the Florida Turnpike. If so, you may have also witnessed a sign for Toll/State Road 429. Construction began back in 2000, and it was completed in 2012. So, what is this mystery road and why is it important to my Disney vacation? As a former WDW Cast Member, who actually lived off an exit of the 429, I can say that this toll road was constructed to bypass the headache that is I-4 and the congestion of Downtown Orlando/Universal/Seaworld/I-Drive traffic. State Road 429 exits the Florida Turnpike and keeps you West of the hubbub, takes you past some lovely towns in the western suburbs of Orlando, and eventually drops you off near Davenport, FL on the south side of I-4. This toll road isn’t traveled much, and really shows you the beauty of the remaining orange […]

Who doesn’t love it when a last minute dinner reservation, one of only a handful you are able to find with such short notice, turns out to be such a pleasant surprise? This was our experience with the Maya Grill at the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World. We had shuffled reservations around during the week to accommodate changes in plan due to the very hot weather. We were tired and worn out, so we ended up back at our resort mid-afternoon when we realized…..we’re going to be hungry soon!

The Maya Grill at our resort had looked nice when we peeked in earlier in the day, so we decided to […]

Are you wanting the luxury of a deluxe resort without the price tag? A great solution maybe staying Business Class at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. My family stayed in this hidden gem in June of 2015. First of all, I love the location of Coronado Springs. You can see the Tower of Terror from the property along with the statues that decorate the peaks of the Swan and Dolphin Resort. It is considered to be in the Animal Kingdom Resort Area. Therefore, it is a fairly short bus ride to Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. It can be a bit of a haul to get to the Magic Kingdom. Disney’s Coronado Springs itself is themed in Mexican/American Southwest. There is a great swimming area with a Mezo-American pyramid, water slide, baby pool, bar and fire pit. The resort itself is visually stunning! The staff may have been the best […]
