I’m so excited for the NEW Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort to open this summer! This moderate resort is getting some major upgrades giving it more of a deluxe feel. Two new restaurants will also be opening including rooftop and overwater dining. The tower will also feature 50 room and suites with club level access which is something currently only available at Deluxe properties. Here's a sneak peek:
Ask me more about this great new option coming to Walt Disney World this summer! I can’t wait to stay here next time I’m in the magic!
Your VIP Tour starts at your Walt Disney World Resort where you will be picked up and whisked away to the most magical place on earth! When you arrive at your chosen theme park, you will skip the front entrance and be dropped off behind the scenes in the VIP area where you will be greeted by cast members offering you refreshments. Within minutes of entering the park you will be walking towards your first attraction. When you are a VIP you will have an unlimited FastPass+ for any attraction your heart desires. Some attractions even have a back door entrance where you can skip the fast pass line all together. Your VIP tour guides share fun facts along the way and give you inside information about the attractions. When you are ready to move onto the next theme park all you have to do is tell your guide and your private vehicle will pick you up to take you wherever you want! These guides know the parks like the back of their hands, the timing of the shows, parades, fireworks etc. As an added benefit of the VIP tour, you can book private viewing areas for some of these special events. The tour starts whenever you like and lasts a minimum of seven-hours. At the end of the day your VIP tour guides calculate the wait times for every attraction you experienced that day to let you know how long you would of waited in line if you attempted to do the same number of attractions on your own. Our total wait time was a shocking fifteen-hours!

Tomorrow morning I'll be flying from Toronto to Maui to check out Honua Kai Resort and Spa and while I'm there I'll be taking in some of the most popular excursions around the island. I'll be kicking off this self guided FAM trip with a 2:00am wake up call for the Haleakala Sunrise tour with Skyline Hawaii followed by a long nap on the Kaanapali beach :) My itinerary also includes the world famous Old Lahaina Luau and whale watching.
While in Maui, I will be staying at the stunning Houna Kai Resort and Spa in a one bedroom resort view villa. This property also offers 2 and 3 bedroom options some with ocean views making it a fantastic choice for families.

You might be wondering what makes Saint Lucia so different from other islands in the Caribbean. For me it's all about the breathtaking landscape, lush rainforests, gorgeous beaches and luxury accommodations. I recently had the pleasure of staying at Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort in Saint Lucia and I wanted to share my experience with you!
The first thing you will notice when you arrive at the resort is the gorgeous Mediterranean style villas built on the hillside. These villas allow for breathtaking ocean views from almost every room. One of the most unique features of this resort is the optional all-inclusive program that includes water sports such as windsurfing, water skiing, sailing, tubing, banana boat rides and more! Since many of the guest rooms are villas with full kitchens you can also choose to skip the all-inclusive program and prepare your own meals or even hire a chef. The atmosphere is very relaxing with a traditional Caribbean vibe. I love this resort for a romantic getaway or for families who enjoy extra space. Windjammer Landing left us so relaxed that we can't wait to return to this island paradise!
Food & Drink
One of my favourite things about staying at an all-inclusive resort is that you can enjoy dining without having to think about the cost. At Windjammer Landing we found the service to be exceptional in the dining rooms and throughout the resort. There is something so nice about ordering off the menu and having your meals delivered to your table. We also loved having breakfast delivered to our room. There is nothing like enjoying your coffee from your private verandah looking out at the ocean!
Note: A 10% gratuity is included with the all inclusive package but you can always tip a little extra!
At Windjammer Landing you can enjoy motorized and non motorized water sports as part of your all-inclusive package! This includes everything from sailing to wakeboarding. We had a chance to try out the stand up paddle boards and enjoyed a ride on the banana boat. For something a little more adventurous Windjammer Landing also has a dive shop on-site where you can book a diving trip almost everyday (for an additional charge).
Luxury 3 Bedroom Beachfront Villa
Premium 1 Bedroom Villa
Many of the villas are built into the hill allowing for breathtaking views. Transportation to and from the beach is just a phone call away and included in your stay. For those who love staying right on the beach there are also stunning 2 and 3 bedroom beachfront villas. Many of the villas feature full kitchens, separate sleeping areas and plunge pools which are great for families and larger groups.
Booking tip - There are so many different room categories and locations at this resort to choose from. Contact me to help you hand select the best room for your stay.
Why book with me
It's my job to research resorts and when I'm on-site I take it all in. I ask fellow travellers what they love about their trip and what they would change. I make notes and take pictures so that I can share my experience with my clients. I believe the most important part of any trip is the planning. When it comes to Windjammer Landing there are many factors to consider before booking. The different options will greatly effect your experience while staying at this resort so be sure to give me a call before booking.

I recently returned home from the most amazing adventure, sailing around Alaska with my Mom and my two little girls (aged 3 & 6). The Disney Wonder sails out of Vancouver, British Columbia from May to September and visits Tracy Arm, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan Alaska before returning back to Vancouver. This one week voyage to Alaska is filled with Disney magic, incredible adventures for the whole family, and stunning scenery that will take your breath away. Here are a few pictures from our trip:
Disney Wonder - Alaska June 4th, 2018
Frozen Deck Party - Freezing the Night Away! This party takes place in the evening between the two dining rotations so everyone can enjoy it. A surprise from Anna is left in your stateroom beforehand to help everyone get excited. We had dinner at Animators Palate that evening and the dining room was transformed into a winter wonderland. To finish off the night we went to the Walt Disney Theatre to see a live performance of Frozen. It was awesome!

When you cruise with Disney Cruise Lines there are so many fun ways to get excited before you leave. Many people like to personalize their stateroom doors by decorating them with custom magnets! I have created this very simple tutorial to help you create your own DIY magnets.
Gather all the materials you will need to make your Disney Cruise Line door magnets.
Place your images in the laminating sheets. You can pre cut the images to use fewer sheets.
Turn on your laminator and once ready start laminating the sheets.
Once laminated cut out each image neatly along the line.
Cut and attach magnets to the back of each cut out and you are all set!
