Guide to the 2019 Epcot Festival of the Arts

Another year, another festival! The 2019 festival season at Epcot kicked off today with the International Festival of the Arts. This is the newest festival at Epcot, and this is the second year they’ve done it. We think it’s a great addition to the other great events at Epcot, like Food & Wine and Flower & Garden. Obviously this festival is very art themed. There are local and international artists showcasing their work, live performances, workshops, festive food and drink choices, and plenty of merchandise.

Bar Hopping on the Brilliance of the Seas

Bar Hopping on the Brilliance of the Seas

We just got off a relaxing five night Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas. This is overall one of our favorite ships to go on. We have been on it several times now since it has made Tampa its winter home. The Brilliance is a more medium-sized ship, so it doesn’t have a lot of the activities like the bigger ships do. Nevertheless, we always have a great time; the service is always excellent and the food is delicious. There is enough entertainment to keep us occupied. We also like this ship size because it’s big enough but not overwhelming. Of course, this is a cruise so there are also plenty of places to … imbibe. Here are all the bars to check out on the Brilliance of the Seas. Please drink responsibly!

Disney World Resort Hopping: Pop Century & Art of Animation

There are plenty things to do in Disney World that don’t involve going to a theme park. One of our favorite things to do is go resort hopping! Pop Century and Art of Animation are considered “value resorts” but they don’t skimp on the details here. These are great resorts to go walk around and explore.

For right now, to get to these resorts you will have to take the bus. Your best bet is to go to Disney Springs and then take the bus to either Pop Century or Art of Animation. The two resorts are connected, so you can start at either one. Coming soon will also be the Skyliner gondola transportation system that will connect Art of Animation and Pop Century to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

Review: Busch Gardens Tampa Christmas Town

While Orlando is the theme park capital of the world, we actually have a great theme park in Tampa! Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is located about an hour and a half from Orlando and an hour and a half from Sarasota. We decided to get annual passes for Busch Gardens so we could check out some of the special events that they do, like Christmas Town!

Two Days in Berlin, Germany

The capital city and largest city in Germany has an infamous past and a vibrant present and future. While the city is moving on from the events that happened here, they also do not shy away from it. There are plenty of museums and memorials that serve as a reminder for what happened. While you could, of course, spend way more time in Berlin, here are some things you should definitely do if you only have two days in Berlin, Germany.

5 Things To Do At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party



We had such a fun time attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year! Because we are Annual Passholders, we don’t always love to spend extra money to get into the parks. However, we haven’t been to Not So Scary in several years and thought we should check it out again. It did not disappoint! It was so festive getting to see Magic Kingdom all spooky. One of the best parts is the people watching and seeing what costumes other guests are wearing. Some of you are so creative! There is a lot to see and do at Not So Scary. Here are some of our favorite things to do at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Two Week Eastern Europe Itinerary

Post by Ashley

I just got back from a great trip through Eastern Europe and wanted to share the itinerary and some tips! Eastern Europe is a region that I have never been to before, and I packed a lot in during this trip. I went with a tour company since I have never been to these cities before, but I definitely would feel comfortable going back on my own. Most of the cities are walkable or have great public transportation. Many of the tours and touristy places in these cities focus on World War II, so if you like history these are interesting places to visit.

7 New York City Attractions Outside Manhattan

Despite being one of the most popular cities on the planet for tourism, New York City tends to be viewed through a pretty narrow lens. A huge majority of the landmarks, restaurants, bars, attractions, and sights that are commonly recommended for visitors are in the central burrow of Manhattan. And while you should definitely make time for some of these highlights – the new World Trade Center, Central Park, 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center, and countless restaurants to name a few – you should also remember that there’s a whole lot to see beyond Manhattan.

Review: Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

We’ve been Disney Vacation Club members for a while, and one resort we never really cared about was Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. We’re not really into the whole camping theme and rustic decor. However, the first time we actually stayed at the Wilderness Lodge we realized what were missing out on! While we are not personally into the theme at Wilderness Lodge, it is a stunning hotel to stay at. You really feel secluded and like you are, well, in the wilderness. Except you are only a quick boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom!
