Unboxing the April Launch Box

Apr 09, 2021

Travel Agent Success is BLOOMING This Month

Maybe it's just me, but it is TOUGH for me to get excited during that post-holiday-March slump. It gets dark so crazy early, everything outside is dead and there isn't much to look forward to. (As seen by my overzealous celebrating of Pi Day and St. Patty's Day when I'm neither Irish nor a friend of math.)
Then...then comes April. We move the clocks ahead, the daffodils start popping up, the trees begin to bud annnnd, a new Launch Box arrives on my pollen-covered doorstep. Hope SPRINGS eternal! This was such an exciting box for me to open because it signified rebirth, growth, and BLOOMING! the timing was perfect too; arriving on a gorgeous Spring North Carolina day. 
When I opened the box it automatically felt like SPRING! It was full of green! I have missed green so badly this wet and LONG (feeling) winter. There was green from the happy little packing fringe to the beloved monthly candy fix down to...

FUN and FREE From DVC!

Mar 29, 2021

I love a good scavenger hunt. Even more so when there are participation prizes! To celebrate the Disney Vacation Club's 30th Anniversary, members can participate in the DVC Scenic Selfies Game and earn four adorable commemorative buttons!

Stop by any staffed DVC kiosk in any theme park to get started. You'll scan a QR and receive your clues. Take a selfie in the exact location, add a sticker, upload and repeat!

Once you have logged your selfie at all five locations, head back to the staffed DVC kiosk and claim your prize. 

While this fun photo activity says it's a DVC member exclusive on the website, I think it's worth asking at the DVC kiosk if you can participate if you aren't a member. It can't hurt to ask!

Have you done this yet?

Five Covid-19 Changes at WDW to KEEP!

Mar 27, 2021

I think we can all agree that COVID-19 and all that goes with it has put a major damper on the last year of our lives inside of the theme parks and out. While we were all so thankful when Walt Disney World reopened last summer, it was slightly bittersweet to have to adjust to so many changes that were implemented since the closure. Many of those changes were necessary for the safety of the guests, but a lot of them, like no nighttime entertainment or character meet and greets, left many Disney fans praying for the days when things can return to “normal.”

Although it may feel like the parks only have the “bare necessities” right now, I actually have a list of things I hope DON’T go back to normal after COVID. I have managed to find five things about Social Distanced Disney that I enjoy and don’t want to change! Let’s see if you agree.

1. Character Cavalcades/Pop Up Meet and Greets

I’ll admit, I am counting down the days until I can...

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...

Mar 11, 2021

PINCH ME It's St. Patty's Day and I'm at WDW!

  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! We are ALWAYS one to be celebrating something, and St. Patrick's Day is no exception! Grab your green Minnie ears, your quirky green knee socks, and let's get shamROCKED!!!

Here's our list of the TOP FOUR awesomely Irish things to do while enjoying St. Patty's Day at Walt Disney World!


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.

From March 12th-17th, you can enjoy the "Mighty St. Patrick's Festival" at Raglan Road, this annual event will be paired down slightly to...

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.
