Key Largo Family Vacation– I know, I know, Key Largo has nothing to do with Disney. As the local Florida resident on this blog team, I wanted to bring you all some other great Florida destinations. As our kids are getting bigger we are trying to get out and about and explore our state! Also, in full disclosure, we had such a great time on our Key Largo Family Vacation I wanted to share our adventures.
After careful consideration, Ben and I decided that a wedding in Disney World wasn’t the right choice for us. The proposal in the Wilderness Lodge was perfect (read about that here), and we love Disney and know they’d orchestrate a gorgeous wedding, but it just wasn’t quite the right fit. Since Disney is something we both love, and something we love to enjoy together, we decided the day wouldn’t feel right if it was completely without Disney. Here’s how we worked with the Mouse to bring Disney to our Rhode Island wedding.
So many places to visit … so little time is the old adage. We have been trying to visit a new destination each summer with our kids. Sometimes we make it further down the road then others. I am going to share my top 8 bucket list vacations for families. I have employed the help for some other great bloggers who I am living vicariously through, and are some of my travel inspirations. Disney’s Beach Club Resort – Contributed by Francine at PixieDustFan.com Ok, so the Beach Club is a bit of a cheat. I have been there for one glorious night. I need to go back. Francine lays out…
I am recently back from the most magical place on earth and battling the Disney blues by reliving some fantastic new memories. During our last visit, Ben and I were able to enjoy a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) perk called Moonlight Magic at Animal Kingdom — and it sure was magical!
Take a tour of the Deluxe Studio at Aulani!
Though not flanked by a Haunted Mansion, Aulani is still unmistakably “Disney.” Among other things, that means the Imagineers who worked on the resort put care into every design choice made. It also means guests can take tours to learn more about those decisions!
I told you I’d be coming at you with all the Aulani articles, so I hope you’re ready! We’re starting a Laniwai, where Ben and I splurged for our honeymoon and booked massages! There was so much more to the spa than just the services we paid for and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Florida has so much to offer, Disney, beaches, camping, alligators…. I often hear people ask what beach is close to Orlando in an attempt to hit a beach and visit our favorite mouse in the same trip. I going to give you the scoop on one of our favorite beaches ( full disclosure it is also in my backyard).
Part 2: Vero Beach. Disney’s Vero Beach I know what you are thinking … “Vero Beach isn’t even Disney, right?”… Wrong! I like to think of it as Disney “light.” Vero has all the amenities, service, and little Disney touches you want without the hustle and bustle and characters in your face. I mean this in the best way (not to offend those who love the fast pace of chasing down characters).
Last Monday, I had the bittersweet pleasure of coming home from a magical honeymoon at Aulani, Disney’s resort in Ko Olina on Oahu, Hawaii. There’s so much I can’t wait to share with you about our amazing trip and the Disney touches at our wedding, but first, I want to give a quick overview of Aulani.
