Tips for having a great time at Disney World

Disney World is an incredible place to visit, and you want to make the most of your visit when you go.

Relax at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort

My son and I had the privilege of visiting the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort on our recent trip to California. The resort is right on the beach, and offers a variety of daily activities, and they have many items available to sign out including pool noodles, boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and beach umbrellas. At the resort, there were video games that my son enjoyed, and a ping pong table where he played for the first time.

When you visit Disneyland, you are within walking distance to Downtown Disney, Disneyland and Disney California Adventures. We chose to go right to Disney California Adventures because we wanted to see Cars Land! We went right to the line for a fast...

Southern California: A great place to wind down

After my recent visit to New York City, I was ready to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet! Having never been to the West Coast before, I wasn’t sure what to expect on my visit to Los Angeles and San Diego, but I was looking forward to it! I noticed several things in Southern California: People are very laid back. I love this! There is just a general relaxed feeling in the area, and people are generally very patient and kind, at least in my experience. I was advised by a local that traffic laws and lights are...
