Resort Hopping

Hi y'all! My name is Wyndie and I'm a resort hopper. Yes, I am one of those indecisive people who constantly changes her mind about which resort to stay. I have changed our current trip resort so many times that my family doesn't even want to hear about the "new" resort, because they know that I'll just change my mind again.

What's ironic about my "addiction" is that when it comes to my clients, I have no problem helping them choose their resort. I can tell you why you should pick a certain resort, what amenities I think you'll enjoy, and why it is the perfect choice for your Disney adventure. When it comes to my trips......I can NEVER decide.

Planning your trip

I thought I should write about planning your trip to it Disneyland, Aluani, Walt Disney World, etc.  There is a good deal of planning involved for any Disney trip.

Obviously, I would be a terrible Disney Travel Planner if I didn't suggest using someone like myself. As a DTP, we are authorized by Disney to book trips for others through their site. We not only can book your trip for you,but we can also book your dining and help you plan all aspects of your trip. The best part.....we did it for free! Yep, no cost to you. Now isn't that a deal?!  Here is my final, shameless plug. Feel free to email me at anytime at or give me a call at 866.611.5413 ext. 303, I'd love to help you plan a magical adventure.

Am I Crazy?

I'm I crazy? We have decided to drive to Walt Disney World this year. Yes, you read that to Walt Disney World.....from Texas.  Yikes!

Maybe I am crazy, but this just seems like the best idea to me.  First of all, airfare is expensive!  For my family of four to fly from Austin to Orlando, it is around $2000. It's even more if we flew from our home town.  With food, hotel stop and gas, our total drive down and back will cost us about $1000. That's half price! Of course, I'm going to want to save $1000.

I realize that it will take us longer. We are leaving from Austin, because we are leaving our dog, Lucy with my mom and step-father. I've consulted a half dozen websites which all give me a different time frame ranging from 16 - 20 hours. I'm going to assume around 18 hours. I know that flying is not nearly that long, but let's do the math.

Where to begin.....again

Here I am sitting at my keyboard trying to decide where to begin....again. I say 'again' because I have started and retooled this blog numerous times. I never fancied myself a blogger, but I thought I'd give it a try.

Let me reintroduce myself. My name is Wyndie. I live in Texas with my darling husband (DH), my darling son (DS) and my darling daugheter (DD). We also have a dog and a cat who we treat like children.

I'm a Disney Travel Planner with Magical Adventures Travel and a stay at home mom. It's the best of both worlds. I get to do what I love, which is help people plan a magical Disney vacation, while staying at home with my children.

My plans for this blog are to talk about Disney vacations, tips, budget ideas, touring ideas, dining, etc.  I may also talk about my family, because they are a huge part of me.  Primarily, this will be a Disney blog so no worries that you'll have to hear about my potty training issues with DD.........but any tips would be appreciated.

Since we are getting ready to take a trip to Walt Disney World (WDW) in November, I know I'll have a lot to talk about beforehand and after. Speaking of my trip.......
