TOP TEN! What Makes the Grand Floridian GRAND? Part 1

Mar 13, 2021

“I’m going to Walt Disney World!” Once you’ve made that decision, you are probably on cloud 9, right? But then come all the details that have to be planned. Number 1 on that list might be: where am I going to stay? For many, those red-shingled roofs and spires scream “Disney”! Before you even make it to the Magic Kingdom bus stop, you catch a glimpse of the beauty and grandeur of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Let’s chat about 5 of the TOP TEN of what exactly makes the Grand Floridian GRAND!

 

1. Magic Kingdom Walkway: This has become a game-changer recently. In the past few months, a walkway opened connecting Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian. If you want to get a head start in the morning and not wait on the monorail to start running, this could be perfect for you. You will exit near the monorail station, so just a hop-and-a-skip away from the Magic Kingdom tapstiles. The distance is about .7 miles or about a 10-15...

  Lucky you, not only are you at Walt Disney World, but you are there during one of the most spirited, carefree, and fun holidays of the year, ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

#1 RAGLAN ROAD

I'm not going to beat around the bush; the absolute BIGGEST and best, must-do for your St. Patty's Day list is to visit Raglan Road in Disney Springs. It is ALWAYS St. Patrick's Day at Raglan road so you can imagine the excitement and energy that pulsates from this amazing, authentic Irish eatery during the ACTUAL St. Patrick's Day holiday.

Luck Favors the Plussing It Launch Box Subscribers

Mar 11, 2021
March can mean so many things, the hopeful turn to Spring, days getting longer, Easter on the way, and of course, when all of us channel our inner Irishman for St. Patrick's Day.  And of course, the best part, a new month means a NEW LAUNCH BOX. I truly look forward to this day ALL.MONTH.LONG. (As soon as I have finished going through one, I immediately get completely geeked about what will come the following month! Can one become addicted to Launch Boxes?)
 
 
The March box had a bit of a St. Patty's, "make your own luck" kind of theme to it and I was LOVING it! The first thing I noticed when I opened my box was my handwritten note and the adorable sticker that was adhered to the envelope that read, "Luck favors the prepared." I let that sink in for a bit.
 
I've been fortunate to have my travel business picking up some steam this year, guests are ready to kick some tires, many are ready to commit and it's time for me to switch gears. Having guests ready to...

The Rain Can't Dampen Disney Days!

Feb 15, 2021
I like to fancy myself a philosophical type, pretending that I somehow coined the phrase, "A rainy day in Disney is better than a sunny day anywhere else." Who knows, maybe I did, but it's more likely that I've ripped someone smarter off somewhere along the line. I'm currently type-type-typing away from my home in North Carolina where it has pretty much rained every day for easily the last two months. It's hard to not let the cloudy dreariness wear you down, especially during the throes of what continues to be Covid life, so as I always do when things feel heavy, I turn to thoughts of Disney. 
 
Florida is pretty much famous for three things DISNEY, beaches, and...well, rain. Chances are if you are vacationing in Florida pretty much any time of the year, their infamous pop-up showers will find you. Sometimes they pop up out of nowhere and move out as quickly as they moved in. Other times, storms come in and just sit on your day like a Mrs. Jumbo sized bummer. So, what do...

A Single Girl’s Guide to WDW: Top 10 Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s Day (Part 1)

Feb 12, 2021

February can be a month jam-packed with hearts, flowers, and lots of romance for couples in love! A lot of singles joke that it’s a rough month for us but I tend to disagree. Recently, the addition of “Galentine’s Day” celebrations has brought a whole new way for singles to look at the month that seemed to be solely reserved for those who found themselves twitterpated! Galentine’s Day allows you to celebrate your own “Fab 5” who has had your back through thick and thin with special gifts, parties, and even trips that can lead to life-long memories.

So why not create a top ten list of ways that ladies (and gentlemen) can treat themselves at Walt Disney World to celebrate Galentine’s Day? One thing to note- this list does not only apply to Galentine’s Day celebrations. These are great ideas for booking girl’s trips, bachelorette parties, and more.

    Okay, this is my FAVORITE item on...

What in the Giant Golf Ball is Happening at Epcot?!

Feb 03, 2021
There was a television show almost 20 years ago called, "The Swan." It was a tacky show, but a guilty pleasure the husband and I are guilty of watching and still reference to this day. If you aren't familiar, then you're probably a really nice human and didn't miss much. It was an EXTREME makeover show, where average-looking gluttons for punishment underwent plastic surgery and all kinds of torturous makeover extremes to then be crowned, "The Swan." Sounds horrifying, right? Well, that's kind of what I feel like is happening over at Epcot right now. 
 
I am never one of those people that advocate "skipping a park." In fact whenever a guest asks me, "Which park should we skip," I pretty much start to break out in a cold sweat and may even develop a hive or two. Maybe I'm crazy, but I just feel attached to all of the parks and think that they are all unique and offer something special, ESPECIALLY the parks too often deemed as "half-day" parks. 
 
For years, once...

PLUSSING IT LAUNCH BOX: February Review

Feb 03, 2021
I am a literal broken record, every time I open up my latest subscription Plussing It Launch Box, I squeal and say, "THIS one is my favorite!" You just have to trust me, even though we've just met about 30 words ago, this February box really is my favorite box so far. I know, I know, until next month; but isn't that the point?  Isn't the point that these boxes keep getting better and better and I continue to get more and more excited about my travel business. (AND more excited about receiving my Plussing It Launch Box subscription, the weeks can't fly by fast enough!
 
Is it anticlimactic when I start with my FAVORITE thing in the box? I just can't help myself, I am such a pin trading geek. I am raising two pin trading geeks. We pin trade with each other even when we aren't at the parks, just here, at home, laying out in the middle of someone's bedroom. (Did you just cringe and think, "Ewww, they ARE geeks?")
 
Whenever I am putting together a final document folder...
