Las Vegas with Teenagers
Las Vegas isn’t usually the first place you consider for a family vacation but as the kids get older, we find ourselves looking for new and different things to see and do as their interests evolve into other activities. Our regular school life is filled with sports – football and rugby, most notably and the last couple of years has included a lot more practices and games to enjoy (and familiarize ourselves with!)
Becoming an Avenger! A Marvel-ous Adventure at Avenger's Campus!
“AVENGERS Assemble!” Our comic book fantasies come to life with the new Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim! If you’re Marvel enthusiasts like we are, you can relate to the aspirations of becoming a superhero while growing up with Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe! And now, at Avenger’s Campus, all aspiring superheros can join their heroes and become an Avenger!
My Book Baby has birthed!
My pandemic project is now published and my book baby has been birthed!
It’s been a mad dash to the finish line trying to get things ready as the flurry of Canadian travellers are all gearing up to make upcoming travel plans. I know I’m not the only one that has been flooded with travel requests these last couple of weeks but the excitement to travel again is definitely thick in the air!
Another Pandemic Project: My Second Book
Trying to be productive and useful these days, but not a whole lot of travel bookings to help plan. The demand is just not there (obviously) and what we can offer right now is very limited so I decided to put the information in my head to good use. I’ve been working on my next book - a Disney World vacation planning book and I’ve completed the first draft. While it’s only the first step, and the beginning of the next stage, it sure does feel good to write “The End” on the manuscript!
Joy through the World: A Travel Box Subscription
Life has been a big bowl of lemons lately so this is my lemonade. As a travel advisor caught in the sudden disruption to clients travel, what normally was a source of remarkable joy in planning trips turned into a nightmare as we cancelled clients' vacations plans over and over. The disappointment and heartbreak was onerous and left me weary and disheartened.I have been trying to think creatively outside the box (pun totally intended!) to inspire you with the same feelings of joy, anticipation and excitement of a trip planned without necessarily having a specific trip to look forward to because we can all use a little "pick me up" these days! Thinking outside of the box brings me straight to a box!
Arizona Adventures: Two Days in Tucson
In the middle of the Sonoran Desert, and less than two hours from Phoenix, sits Tucson, the second largest city in Arizona with more sunshine than you can imagine! With more than 340 days of sun each year, you are almost guaranteed a sunny vacation any time of year! Our trip in January allowed us to experience a wide range of temperature and climates of Arizona, including the cool northern temperatures below freezing in Page so we welcomed the contrast in temperatures when we arrived in Tucson with clear blue skies and sunny hot temperatures!
Arizona Adventures: Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend
You may have come across these vividly beautiful works of art in photographs, online or print magazine wondering in awe and amazement as to what it might be. It’s Mother Nature. Or, rather slot canyons located throughout the American Southwest, notably in Utah, Arizona and Nevada.
The most fun you will have with goats (and a little yoga too!)
“Trump is sooo cute!!" Followed by squeals of delight and giggles abound.
That’s not something you hear very often, but only in a large field in Arizona, with more than 100 participants taking part in a yoga class surrounded by goats, Trump was definitely a popular one! But there was no shortage of goats around grazing the field looking for attention and cuddles, and there were plenty of us willing to share.
Look Ma! I wrote a book!
"You know so much about Disney you should totally write a book!"
OK! So I did. So maybe that's a bit more simple than it sounds! But when you get to a point where you feel you really want to write a book, it just becomes time. And my time has come. I had been wanting to write a book for a long time, and then was seriously considering it over the last little while before I finally made the commitment to myself to make the time to actually write the darn thing!
Disneyland Hotel vs Grand Californian Hotel
A most magical Disneyland vacation starts with your onsite stay at one of the three Disney Resort Hotels to choose from! While you can choose to stay at Disney's Paradise Pier for the onsite benefits, many clients find it really comes down to a stay at the classic Disneyland Hotel or the luxurious Grand Californian Hotel. So, it was an important to have experience both to be able to compare the differences between to the two and to experience Disneyland with the most magical vacation to date!
Two Earthquakes and the Fourth of July
The Fourth of July in the USA is something else and being in Disneyland for such a patriotic day is a lot of fun! Walt Disney himself was a true patriotic American and is the epitome of the classic "American Dream". His rags to riches success story includes incredible personal risk and loss, unwavering faith in his passion and daring to dream in creating the impossible.
A visit to Batuu, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland
We started our summer vacation to a galaxy far far away to the planet, Batuu, a remote outpost planet on the edge of the galaxy in the Star Wars universe. The new land opened in Disneyland on May 31, 2019 and for the first three weeks of opening, reservations were required to enter the land. Since June 24, 2019, the land is now open to the public and no reservations are required, unless the land reaches crowd capacity levels where you will be then asked to join a "boarding group", a virtual queue that will tell you when you can enter the land and enjoy its experiences.
Where to stay on the Island of Hawaii
So, the Island of Hawaii inspires you to visit and you've decided that you want to go experience it all! The next stage in the planning process is where to stay on the beautiful island?? There is so much variety on the island and no shortage of places to stay. And part of our experience was to see some of the beautiful accommodations that you can stay for your trip.
Hidden Gems on the Island of Hawaii
So you've probably read about all the things that are unique to the Island of Hawaii and must do! But there are also a lot of fantastic little hidden gems that are just as awesome and wanted to share with you so you don't miss out on these as well.
Bucket List Adventures on the Island of Hawaii
As one of the most aspirational destinations in North America, and with a 90% repeat traveller rate, almost everyone who travels to Hawaii falls in love with the islands and returns home with a calm sense of "aloha", inspiring you to live better, to live with love, kindness and generosity. I was fortunate enough to be invited to further my Hawaii Destination Specialist designation and experience the best of the Island of Hawaii offers, many of which are likely bucket list experiences so it was a huge privilege and opportunity for me to overcome many of my own fears!
Puerto Vallarta in a whirlwind 48 hours with Air Canada Vacations
Given the opportunity to visit Puerto Vallarta for just 48 hours, would you do it?? Of course! After enjoying a very relaxing and laid back visit in the summer at the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa, it didn't take much to convince me to return for Air Canada Vacations MegaFam trip to Puerto Vallarta for 2 nights!
Staying offsite at Universal Orlando
Though we were originally going to just visit Walt Disney World this trip, Universal Orlando is its own vacation destination and we couldn't stay away! So we opted to stay offsite this time to have the opportunity to enjoy all the new stuff at Universal Orlando and can compare against the onsite experience we had two years ago.
To Infinity & Beyond! Adventures in Toy Story Land
Join your favourite Toy Story friends, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jess and the Green Army Patrol in the newly opened Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World! Through the blistering heat in August temperatures, we bravely slogged through the crowds to enjoy the new land to ride the new Slinky Dog Dash rollercoaster, Alien Swirlsaucers and fan favourite Toy Story Mania!
A Special Mother Daughter trip to Family Selection at Grand Palladium Vallarta Hotel & Spa
Thanks to the Palladium Hotel Group, I was able to share in a special mother daughter girls only trip to Puerto Vallarta with a luxurious stay at the new Family Selection at Grand Palladium Vallarta Hotel and Spa. We connected with other like minded individuals and families who understand the importance of travelling with their kids, and making some amazing memories along the way.
Fabulous Las Vegas....with kids
Ah, Las Vegas.....what can I say??!! It is the place where so many people flock to for a quick getaway! Though mainly known for its reputation as "adult freedom" where "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", many do not think or realize that Las Vegas has so many attractions and activities geared towards kids and families that are either free, or affordably priced! It was the perfect excuse for us to get away after the end of another school year, and start the celebration of our summer vacation this year!
The impact of travel
Memories. That's what we all have and what we will cherish the most as we go through life. And some of the best memories are created through travel experiences. Whether it's an annual family vacation to someplace new each year, or a return to a familiar place, the travel experiences with family and friends is what brings us together sharing exclusive moments in time forever captured through memories.
Going Backstage with the Warner Bros Studio Tour in Hollywood
If you are a movie fan and are fascinated with behind the scenes content of how movies and TV shows are filmed, there are several other back stage tours in Hollywood to get your sneak peek. I decided that we should visit the Warner Bros Studio Tour in Burbank for the DC Universe, Batman Collection, Friends set and The Wizarding World - all favourites in our household!
Superheroes run at the Spiderman 5K with runDisney
I wanted to do a runDisney event with my kids so they could experience the joy of running a runDisney race so the Spiderman 5K was the perfect intro to the runDisney world. It's such a great family friendly event for all ages with kids as young as 5 able to register and participate.
A Dapper of a Day! Spending Dapper Day at Disneyland
Why not get all dressed up in your Sunday best and head to Disneyland? That's the idea behind Dapper Day, a day to celebrate the days of a bygone era where people would get dressed up in their best attire for a day out in Disneyland.
Getting Slimed and Stuff at Nickelodeon Punta Cana!
Ever since Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts first opened their resort in Punta Cana in 2016, I knew it would a place that I would eventually visit! It's such a fun themed resort and perfect for a family vacation in the Dominican Republic.
Exploring Pandora with a Whirlwind Weekend Trip to Walt Disney World
We just recently came back from a whirlwind trip to Walt Disney World and experienced the newest land that just opened in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park in Orlando! While it is a bit crazy to visit Disney World for a quick weekend getaway from Calgary, some of the best trips are short and sweet! In my mind, a little Disney magic is better than no Disney at all! It was a perfect weekend to explore the new world of Pandora with the Extra Magic Hours available to Disney onsite guests as a part of its opening plans.
Atlantis, Paradise Island, Nassau Bahamas
Atlantis, Paradise Island in Nassau is an adventure onto itself and deserves a vacation on its own to truly appreciate the magnificence the resort embodies! A one day port adventure day is simply a teaser of what you can fully experience but it was neat to visit nonetheless! Atlantis, Paradise Island is the mythical ocean paradise of the lost city but now is the most incredible vacation destination in the world tempting you with indulgent luxuries, opulent surroundings and breathtaking architecture.
Disney Cruise - 7 night Bahamian Very Merrytime Christmas Cruise
What would be the perfect Christmas gift this year?? Why not the gift of travel?! The opportunities for travel are plenty and I am forever grateful and blessed to travel as much as I can, with my kids in tow to experience all the wonders of travel. And especially as a Disney Vacation Specialist, we have been fortunate enough to visit Disneyland in March, Walt Disney World in August, and a Disney cruise in December. That's a whole lot of Disney vacations in one year! And because of these awesome opportunities, we have had some pretty amazing vacations that my kids will remember for years to come, instead of more "stuff", which we have way too much of anyway!
Wondering what's new? The Disney Wonder has been Reimagined!
When the opportunity arose to go on another Disney cruise adventure, it was one I could not pass up! The Disney Wonder went into dry dock earlier this year for extensive upgrades and changes, her debut into the world reimagined offered an opportunity to visit her again to see all her in her shiny new enhancements!
Universal Studios Florida...What You NEED to Know!
“Vacation Like You Mean It”.
That’s the tag line for Universal Orlando Resort and boy, do they mean it! If you are visiting Orlando and have at least an extra day to spare, it is worth your while to spend it at Universal Studios Orlando. You won’t able to see and do everything in one day but you can certainly pick and choose which attractions you want to do to maximize your experience. The more days you spend there, the more cheaper the per day cost so if you have 2 days to spare, that would be perfect!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Universal Studios Orlando
Ever since J.K Rowling came out with the Harry Potter books, our lives have never been the same. The success of the books and then the movies have catapulted Harry Potter being embedded in the fabric of our beings and one cannot ignore the impact Harry Potter has in our pop culture. Thus The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is an inevitable destination for Harry Potter fans from all over the world!
Stay Onsite for Maximum Universal Experience!
If you want to truly experience as much as Universal Studios Orlando can offer, staying onsite at one of their onsite resorts can give you the maximum benefits to experience as much as you can from Universal Studios!
Le Cellier Steakhouse, Canada Pavilion at EPCOT
Canadian pride is out in full force! One of the most highly recommended restaurants in all of Disney World is Le Cellier Steakhouse and is one of the first restaurant recommendations I mention to clients or friends. Le Cellier, is French for "the cellar" and is located in the Chateau at the Canada Pavilion at the World Showcase in EPCOT at Walt Disney World. The experience is akin to visiting an underground wine cellar for a cozy and intimate steak dinner surrounded by vintage glass and wood architecture.
Disney Dining Plan - Yay or Nay?
One of the benefits to staying onsite at a Disney resort is that you can add a dining plan to your reservation! The dining plan is exclusive to Disney World onsite guests and gives you pre-purchased meal credits that can be used in over 100 restaurants throughout Disney World. Each guest is allotted a certain number of meal credits (depending on the specific plan purchased), per night of your stay. All guests in the room reservation must be on the same dining plan and must be purchased for the length of the stay.
Onsite Benefits to staying at a Walt Disney Resort
If you are considering staying offsite, then you need to read this!! Staying onsite at a Disney World Resort adds so much magic to your Disney World vacation by being completely immersed in the world of Disney not to mention the convenience and maximized opportunities to enjoy all of Walt Disney World! With the size similar to San Francisco or double the size of Manhattan, Disney World is truly a world in itself. The transportation and traffic logistics of simply entering and exiting Disney World can add precious hours each day that could be better utilized onsite.
Where to Stay at Walt Disney World
If you are thinking about a visit to Walt Disney World in Orlando, then this is the perfect place to begin! There are so many different options for every single type of family vacation, (or honeymoon!), and for all budgets. Often, the biggest determining factors tend to be for how long, and where to stay. The many extra benefits of staying onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort far outweighs the cost savings of staying onsite and sometimes the difference can be minimal, if you factor in all the extra time and costs that are levied when you stay offsite.
Morimoto Asia Disney Springs - Asian food heaven!
When I heard that Morimoto Asia was opening up in Walt Disney World as a part of the newly redesigned Disney Springs in September 2015, I knew that I had to visit on my next trip to Disney World. Growing up, Chef Masaharu Morimoto was my favourite Iron Chef on the original Iron Chef series and I would faithfully watch the food battles of Kitchen Stadium and loved the dubbed Japanese conversations! There was so much fire and excitement centered around food! Now we find old episodes on Youtube to introduce my kids to the food finds of the nineties!
Let's Go to LEGOLAND!
LEGO fans young and old will not want to miss out on the LEGOLAND experience! A world created out of LEGO for your pure enjoyment! LEGOLAND California is located in Carlsbad, California, about an hour south of Anaheim and about 30 minutes north of San Diego so it ideally located for those travelling on a Southern California vacation!
Disneyland 60th - Experience the Night!
Isn't she pretty? I can only hope I look this good when I turn 60! Disneyland in Anaheim is continuing to celebrate the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration in the parks but the celebration is only on until September so if you haven't had a chance to visit the park in all her bedazzled beauty, there is still time! As a part of the Diamond Celebration, three spectacular evenings shows were created and re-imagined for the celebration to combine heartfelt tributes to Walt Disney and his vision with the newest technology available to create the most magical experience for guests! Nostalgia and modernity combine to bring awe-inspiring and unforgettable experiences.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Hollywood
Harry Potter has landed in California! His long awaited arrival is welcomed by Harry Potter fans who don't have to trek east to Orlando and can now visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Hollywood! The official Grand Opening is April 7, 2016 but the area has been open to visitors who want a sneak peek before big day and we were fortunate enough to check it all out on our recent visit!
Combatting Cabin Fever in Calgary! On Kim's Kitchen
Kim's Kitchen is a local Calgary talk show on ShawTV "aiming for the the wisdom of Oprah, humour of Ellen and the outspoken of Rachel." As they are beginning to film new episodes for Season 3 of the show, I was honoured to be a guest on their episode focusing on “Cabin Fever”. It was a super fun morning of filming with a great group of ladies, and fantastic behind the scenes crew. Here is a quick summary of some of the ideas that I was planning on sharing for this episode of Kim's Kitchen on affordable family fun in and around Calgary to alleviate cabin fever!

This is what a luxurious beach vacation sounds like and the best place to get your adult only experience is with Palace Resorts - Le Blanc Spa Resort, Sun Palace, and Isla Mujeres!
Families Can Stay at the Palace! Moon, Beach, Playacar & Cozumel

Spoiled Rotten & Living the Palace Life with Palace Resorts!
This past week, Centre Holidays agents from all over Canada had to opportunity to experience "The Palace Life" with a FAM trip hosted by Palace Resorts and with a stay at Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort in Cancun. It was the most AMAZING experience with a grand entrance into Cancun airport during a tropical storm and trudging through the flooded airport to find our transportation. Not exactly what I had expected for my first impression of Cancun, but it is definitely one I will not soon forget!

Become a kid again at Disney without the kids!
Can you imagine a Disney vacation without kids?? Why would anyone want to go to Disney without kids? Because as parents we are used to and very comfortable with planning many areas of our lives around the kids. And travel, vacations and especially Disney vacations are usually all centered around our kids. BUT.... Have you ever considered a Disney vacation, WITHOUT the kids??
Disneyland 24 Hour Marathon 2015 - We did it!
Disneyland in Anaheim, California held their annual 24 hour marathon event on May 22, 2015 where the parks are open for 24 hours, from 6:00am on Friday, May 22 until 6:00am Saturday, May 23, 2015. I was joined by my fellow Disney addict-partner-in-crime, Vinnie, to tackle the 24 hour marathon event as Disney marathoner rookies.
Disneyland 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration
Disneyland turns 60!! Sixty years ago, Walt Disney opened up Disneyland on July 17, 1955 - a dream he had imagined for so long had come to life! He simply wanted to create a place so magical, so full of happiness that people want to come and put all their troubles behind them. And it was beyond his wildest imagination that it has turned into the the iconic place of happiness for everyone, everywhere in the world to enjoy the "happiest place on earth".
Mixology = Tipsy-ology on a Disney Cruise! Some Fun for Adults too!
When most people first hear the words "Disney cruise", images of kids overtaking the ship and frantic parents abound trying to appease high energy kids are very common! One might think, Disney cruises are best for kids and families. Which... it is true. Disney Cruise Line is definitely highly recommended and recognized to be a cruise line option for families. But what about adults? Disney is not JUST for kids!! There are plenty of adult-only activities on a Disney cruise that will fill your time WITHOUT the kids!!
Going on Cruise Control! Why Families Should Consider a Cruise Vacation!
If you have never been on a cruise before, or have never considered a cruise for a family vacation, what is stopping you?? It's hard for many of us landlocked Canadians to embrace the idea of going far away, being isolated on a big ship in the middle of the ocean and having fun while doing so??
Hello Hong Kong!
I LOVE Hong Kong! That's all I have to say. Well, more than that but what an amazing experience we had in Hong Kong! It had been over 20 years since I've been back and so much had changed, yet there was a certainly element of familiarity with being back in Hong Kong.
Ocean Park Hong Kong
Welcome to Ocean Park Hong Kong, the award winning theme park in Hong Kong! A little bit of everything is here - animal theme park, amusement park, and aquarium, Ocean Park has something for everyone and is definitely a place to see when in Hong Kong!
Hong Kong Disneyland
Our Disney vacation bucket list continues with a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland! Pretty much as soon as we got off the airplane, this was our first stop in Hong Kong! Located on Lantau Island, close to the airport, Hong Kong Disneyland brings the pixie dust magic to the Asian gateway of Eastern and Western culture!
Disney Cruise Dining and Palo
Dining on Disney cruises is definitely a culinary experience unlike any other cruise line! Their unique rotational dining experience allows you to try a different themed restaurant (and menu) each night while your serving team stays with you as you move. Onboard the Disney Wonder, the three main dining restaurants are Tritons, Parrot Cay and Animator's Palate.
Happy New Year! Out with 2014, in with 2015!
Happy New Year! 2014 was a fantastic year and a great start to my new travel business, and increased my travel opportunities significantly over the last few years. I had to opportunity to visit Honolulu, Hawaii, and had the pleasure of staying at Aulani, Disney's newest resort on the island of Oahu. I also took the family to Disneyland in Anaheim at the beginning of the summer, and went on a Disney cruise to Alaska in the middle of the summer! It was the year of Disney and the Disney train continues!
"Must Do" & "Don't Miss" Activities on a Disney Cruise!
After recently returning from our Disney cruise over the summer, and helping others plan their first Disney cruise, I'm often asked about the "Must Do's" and "Don't Misses" on a Disney cruise. So, in no particular order, here are some highlights of things that I would recommend to include on your first Disney cruise vacation!
The Adventures of Alaska!
Our big summer vacation for 2014 was a 7 night Disney cruise from Vancouver to Alaska, aboard the Disney Wonder.Originally, Alaska may not seem like a common destination for summer travel. Most people generally prefer warm, tropical destinations. Especially for those of us in Alberta and living so close to the Rocky Mountains, Alaska and its surroundings may seem to be very similar to our Canadian picturesque view of the mountains and landscapes. But having been to Alaska and its natural untouched beauty, it is a destination I would highly recommend and definitely go back if given the opportunity to return!
Disney Cruise: Extra Fun!
Fish Extender Update!
If you read my earlier post about all the extra fun activities that go into Disney cruise vacation planning, here is a quick summary of how things turned out! All the extras are certainly not required to do on a Disney cruise but it is a fun way to meet and interact with other people who are on the same cruise week so you can share ideas, stories and fun. As well, the fish extender groups help spread a little pixie dust onboard the ship and makes the trip extra magical!
Disney Cruise Line: The Disney Wonder
To have the opportunity to go on a Disney cruise is the ultimate in family vacation! It really feels like the trip of a lifetime and once you've sailed with Disney Cruise Line (DCL), you will promise yourself that you will definitely be back at some point in your life! I've been on a cruise before although it was only a 3 night cruise, it sure felt like decadence on a ship! With Disney, the decadence, the service, the attention to detail, the dining, the entertainment, the activities, the staterooms and there is so much more! There is truly something for everyone on a Disney cruise and regardless of age, I guarantee you will find entertainment and enjoyment on a Disney cruise!
Disney Cruise - Fish Extenders, Magnets, Pixar Pals & So Much More!
We're ready for our next Disney vacation! We are so fortunate and incredibly blessed that we have another upcoming Disney vacation in a couple of weeks and as the weeks are getting closer, we cannot wait for it to begin! We've been planning our Disney cruise for almost 10 months with the decision made last fall to go on the Disney Wonder to Alaska.
Disney California Adventure Park
Disney California Adventure Park is the home of Cars Land, where Radiator Springs from the movie, "Cars" comes alive!! Walk into Cars Land and you feel like you've walked right into the movie itself!
Disneyland Vacation: Anaheim, California
Back from our recent Disneyland vacation last week and we're going through some serious Disney withdrawal! It's such a magical place where you can immerse yourself in all things Disney, enough to get your Disney "fix" without over doing it! This was a first time visit for my kids, and I'm glad I waited until my youngest was tall enough to go on "most" of the rides! It was well worth the wait as we were able to enjoy many of the "scarier" rides and roller coasters.

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii
On our first trip to Hawaii, we knew we absolutely had to experience the newest Disney resort - Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii, on the beautiful island of Oahu. We could hardly contain our excitement as we drove towards Ko Olina and we identified the signature brown buildings of Aulani as we got closer!
I left my heart in San Francisco
My heart yearns to travel. It's just in my blood. And when you start in the travel business, my heart is aflutter with so many places to go and see, and I don't even know where to begin to go first! But, as I plan for future travel adventures, I look to my past travels to find inspiration and my first travel post takes me to San Francisco, a vibrant and colourful city that invites familiarity and culture to awaken all your senses!
Fairmont Weekend Getaway in the Mountains
For the first weekend in January, we had the opportunity to create our own little mountain getaway to rejuvenate and recharge our senses before we began back to our regular schedule in life with school and work. With escapes to the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Lake Louise, and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, it was the ultimate choice in treating ourselves to a little bit of decadence and indulgence!
