Good news for families

The “Happiest Place on Earth” is going to be making families even happier in the future. Walt Disney World has just announced plans for a new resort option featuring family suites that can hold up to six guests each. This is welcome news for families that have had to splurge on a two- or three-bedroom villa at one of the deluxe properties or scramble for the limited number of connecting hotel rooms at other on-site properties.

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, scheduled to open in late 2012, will include 1,120 family suites (with separate living room and bedroom) and 864 hotel rooms, all designed around four unique themes:  The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Cars, and The Little Mermaid.  The resort will sit on a 65 acre piece of land across the lake from the Pop Century Resort, and will feature giant icons from each of the four movies (including a 35′ tall King Triton) in a central courtyard.

If you just can’t wait two years to take the little ones to Walt Disney World, give me a call. I’ll help you find the best accommodations available for your family now (whatever the size), and we’ll get you in on the “Free Dining” promotion that Disney is offering for later this year!

You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
