When is the best time to go to Disney? Our expert Myenna can help!

This is a common question that as a Disney Vacation Planner I find myself being asked often. The answer? It all depends. What do you want to see? What is most important to you and your family on this trip? Is this trip for a special celebration? Do you mind if the children miss school, does your school have restrictions aboutwhen and for how long a child can be out of school? Is Disney right for my family? These are important things to consider that may help determine what time is best for your family to visit the mouse. Let’s dig a little deeper into these topics to best help you decide when the best time is for you and your family to visit Walt Disney World. What do you want to see? Are you going to Disney to see something specific? Disney has an abundance of special events that take place throughout the year. Some require special entrance tickets, but in my experience have been well worth it! This years special events include: Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend – early January, Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival – March to May, Atlanta Braves Spring Training, Disney Early Morning Magic Fantasyland, Awaken Summer, Sounds Like Summer – June to July, Night of Joy – September 9-10, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party – select nights September and October, Epcot International Food and Wine Festival – September to November, Festival of the Masters, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – select nights November and December, and Holidays Around the World.

Here’s what our travel experts had to say. Happy Valentine’s Day! Sandals Royal Plantation Resort - Ocho Rios, Jamaica I have visited this resort several times, the most recent was about 3 yrs ago. I love how intimate & lush the resort is. Boutique & small yet it offers all the amenities of a larger resort. Romance oozes out of every inch of this resort form morning to night. Peacocks roam the grounds and the lush vegetation makes for fantastic pictures. Swim out rooms & sumptuous accommodations really made me swoon... I love that the rooms are all butler suites & all ocean view – offering stunning sunset views from each room. The food was prepared and presented beautifully & each wait staff were very attentive & service was exceptional! Every staff member I saw was happy to help & greeted you with a warm & welcoming Jamaica smile. If I were able to recommend a resort for romance – I would have to say Sandals Royal Plantation!

CWT Stewart Travel flies to N’awlins (New Orleans)!

One of the first things you notice when you arrive in New Orleans is how friendly everyone is.  From the cab drivers to the hotel staff I worked with, I couldn’t get over just how nice they were. My first evening there I sailed down the Mississippi River on the Steamboat Natchez.  I had phenomenal weather that night to enjoy the music and a drink on the deck while looking at the views of the New Orleans shoreline.  Even if you are not a fan of Jazz music, the band was amazing and the atmosphere was great. The next morning (before my group arrived) I was up early to take in some sites on my own.  I enjoyed walking by the river that I had sailed down the night before.  It had a great path with benches and the streetcar runs by the river and is the oldest operating streetcar in the world.  I took the opportunity several nights later to ride it just for the experience. After walking along the river I made my way to Jackson Square where you find St Louis Cathedral and all the artists are out displaying their artwork.  There are some of the oldest buildings that are now retail shops, museums, galleries and restaurants on the main levels.  I stopped at world famous Cafe Du Monde for a beignet!  Absolutely delicious and a must do. A little further is the French Market that is full of restaurants, shops, and in the evening some great music as well. Walking around first thing in the morning it was quiet, but it doesn’t take long at all to fill up with tourists everywhere. Bourbon St also just a few blocks from our hotel [...]

The Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas Pre-inaugural Sailing

  The Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas Pre-inaugural Sailing Our very own Lynda Sorrie and Myenna Doering were a few of the lucky agents who got to experience the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas Pre-inaugural Sailing first hand. The Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas is classed as the world’s most revolutionary ship. You can skydive right on the deck of the ship with a skydiving simulator, play with the bumper cars, a roller rink, circus school and more. If relaxing is more your speed, enjoy breathtaking island sights from the best seat in house, the North Star. Take in transformative entertainment at Two70. Or grab a drink at Bionic Bar, where mixology meets technology. “The Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas is truly a beautiful ship with elegant and modern décor, wonderful food, excellent entertainment and a variety of on board activities. It was truly a wonderful experience” said Lynda who has sailed on over 20 high–end ships. Lynda and Myenna also were amazed by the 360 degree view from the North Star - a jewel-shaped capsule gently ascended over 300 feet above sea level.  “No matter where you stand in the North Starr you have a great view and can see for miles”, said Myenna. The ladies enjoyed the wall to wall and floor to ceiling windows which provided incredible views, and the ship has a retractable roof!  How cool is that?! The Solarium for adults only is incredibly inviting and relaxing. The Solarium is located at the bow of the ship, the pools and big screen were located in the middle and the rock wall, Flo Rider surf simulator, and Rip Cord by IFly were located at the stern of the ship.
