Do Disney Differently

Unlike most, my first magical journey to the Happiest Place on Earth didn’t occur until I was an adult. As a college freshman, I joined my parents for the trip of a lifetime. . .a no expense spared, amazing adventure to the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida.

We stayed at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the flagship of Disney’s “Deluxe” category of accommodations.

It’s kind of like taking your first flight in first class, which also happened to me if only by accidental upgrade . . .

. . . there’s no coming down.

Since then, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has been a sentimental favorite, and I try to return “home” every time I’m in the area to greet old friends or enjoy a cocktail at Mizner’s while listening to the Jazz Band play.

My accommodation choices have varied over the years, but one thing remains constant. That initial experience instilled in me the belief that there is a different, a BETTER way to do Disney.

And I’ve spent the last 30 years making that my art form.

Just counting Hidden Mickeys at the Four Seasons Orlando. Pretty much the only clue that you’re actually “in Disney” at this exclusive resort.

. . .

From intimate cocktails in hidden tapas bars, signature dining and indulgent spa experiences, to private fireworks cruises, roped off exclusive viewing areas and behind the scenes VIP tours . . .  there are so many “extras” waiting to make your next Disney adventure nothing short of . . . MAGICAL.
