New Year’s Travel Resolutions

I have this wooden sign that sits in my family room.  When I saw it, I had to buy it because I truly believe what it says, “Collect Moments, Not Things.”

Memories of some of my family’s Disney vacations over the years.

As a family, we started giving experiences as gifts instead of more stuff that will eventually find its way to the back of a closet, the storage room and finally in a donation box or garage sale.  

I love to travel and see new places, but also love to go back to my vacation “home” — Disney World. 

Disney World Magic Kingdom.

Did you know with Disney vacations you can see more than the theme parks in Florida and California? Of course, Disney World and Disneyland are amazing and fun vacations whether it is your 1st or 20th visit.  But, there are other Disney vacations too!

Disney Cruises

With a Disney Cruise, you can travel to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, Europe and more! There are special themed cruises too.  If you or your loved one is a Star Wars fan, there is a special Star Wars Day at Sea cruise.  Do you have a Marvel fan?  There’s a cruise with a Marvel Day at Sea with some of your favorite action heroes.  Love the holidays?  At Halloween and Christmas, you can set sail with the Halloween on the High Seas or the Very Merrytime Cruises.  Of course, anytime of the year is fun on Disney cruises.

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa

Did you know that Disney has a resort in Hawaii?  Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa is located on the island of O’ahu in the Ko Olina area.  It is an absolutely amazing resort.  The architecture of Aulani is inspired by the history and traditions of Hawaii.  One of my family’s favorite thing about Aulani is the Waikolohe Valley.  This is the pool area.  There are water slides, several pools and a fun lazy river.  Aulani also has its own saltwater private snorkeling lagoon, Rainbow Reef.  There is so much about Aulani that make it a wonderful place to stay in Hawaii. For more information on Aulani, check out past blog posts:
