A Leading Source in Upscale Disney Vacations
For Those Who Want to Experience The Finer Side of Disney Travel
As a Luxury Disney Travel Blogger and host of a Disney travel podcast, I specialize in The Finer Side of Travel™, including select luxury resorts and destinations around the globe that may have unique ties Disney. I focus on educating and inspiring travelers who are interested in experiencing the very best of Walt Disney World Resort (and other luxury Disney destinations in Florida, California, Hawaii and beyond). In fact, I literally wrote the book on this subject: The Very Best of Walt Disney World Resort, currently in its fourth edition.
With over 50 years of luxury Disney travel experience (including over 100 visits to Walt Disney World Resort alone and well over 1,000 visits to Disney Parks), I stay exclusively in Disney’s Deluxe Resort Hotels and Villas. I know these properties inside out, which means that my blog comes from the perspective of someone who knows and appreciates the finer side of Disney travel and who is personally familiar with Disney’s upscale properties in particular. My perspective differs from local Disney travel bloggers, who have a different perspective than travelers who vacation onsite in Disney hotels.
As a travel expert for all things luxury Disney, I believe that Deluxe Disney is the optimal way to experience all of the magic of Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, Disney Aulani in Hawaii and all other luxury Disney destinations.
When it comes to resort hotels, my Deluxe Disney travel expertise is focused primarily on covering Disney travel to the following Walt Disney World Deluxe Resorts:
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Beach Club Resort
- Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
- Disney’s Boardwalk Inn
- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
I also write about magical Disney vacations to the following Walt Disney World Deluxe Villas:
- Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
- Disney’s Beach Club Villas
- Disney’s Boardwalk Villas
- Disney’s Old Key West Resort
- Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Riviera Resort
- Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Copper Creek Villas & Cascade Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
Your Source for Disney Deluxe Resorts at Walt Disney World and Beyond
In addition to nearly 50 years of multiple annual weeks spent at Walt Disney World Deluxe Resorts each year, I am also a regular traveler to Disney’s non-theme-park luxury resort destinations. These include premier resort properties such as Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii, and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort on Florida’s beautiful Treasure Coast. All told, that’s somewhere in the range of 1,000 nights on Disney property.
Through my Luxury Disney Travel Blog I empower travelers to make informed choices around which Disney Resort is best for them and their family. I aim to help take the stress out of planning an upscale Disney vacation.
In addition, as a formally-trained Chef and lifetime Disney traveler, I frequently rate and review Disney dining. My aim here is to help Disney travelers narrow their dining options down to a select list of restaurants that may best fit their tastes and expectations. So feel free to visit the Disney Dining category of the Luxury Disney Travel Blog.
