Hyatt House Orlando Universal, Family Hotel, Family Hotel with Kitchen, family travel, traveling with kids, diapers on a plane
And I thought I loved Hyatt Place hotels! On our last trip to Orlando we switched up category hotels and opted for the Hyatt House instead of the Hyatt Place. In fact we booked the brand new Hyatt House Orlando Universal Studios located directly across the street from Universal Studios - and this just may be my new favorite...

The illustrious Anniversary Inn located in Salt Lake City, Utah is known to locals as the preeminent place to spend a romantic evening.

Orlando, Hyatt Place, Florida, WDW, Disney, Latin Food, Family travels, traveling with kids, creating family memories
We’ve been visiting Walt Disney World annually since 2010, and in all those years we’ve never once stayed off property. When you stay on property, the magic begins the second you step off the plane into the Orlando airport. Mickey and his Magical Express picks you up and whisks you away to your resort. You stay on a magical...

We made a lot of mistakes when we first started traveling. The first mistake we made was thinking we could always come back. We’d forgo doing things because they were either too expensive, or the line was too long, or we couldn’t squeeze it in. Traveling isn’t like going to the mall, or stopping at Target on the way...
Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino, Beach, Aruba, Family Hotel, Upscale Hotel, Caribbean Hotel, Diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids
We plan all our travels last minute. Part of it is a perk of the job. We get great last minute discounts as part of interline perks. The other part is flight loads. You can’t very well plan everything out not knowing if you’ll even get on a flight where you’ve planned out an intricate vacation. The last part...
Cancun, Family Hotel in Cancun, All Inclusive Resort in Cancun, Mexico, Hotel Zone, Family Hotel in Cancun, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids,
We headed to Cancun as a last resort option. A last resort, because Cancun has never been at the top of our list for places I was remotely interested in going. Whenever I think about Cancun all I can think about are spring break bikinis and young adults with extremely poor judgement getting plastered all the livelong day. But,...

Nothing happened according to plan this trip to Norway. And I mean that in the most literal sense. When we arrived at the Scandic Hotel, chosen because of how often we’d seen it pop up in search results in Google and we just wanted a sure thing, it was early in the morning after our Hurtigruten cruise. We couldn’t...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts. When we read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

The Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground opened 10 years after Disneyland debuted to the public and was the first good neighbor hotel located in proximity to the park. It’s a five-time winner of TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Hotels for Families in the United States, and claims to be the #9 family hotel in the entire country. A bewildering...

Flights didn’t look good departing from Oslo to Amsterdam on December 30 but if nothing else we are risk takers. What do a couple too few seats even mean to a standby traveler? Anything can happen. After all, we made it on a flight from Kirkenes to Oslo that morning when the odds were against us, and not just...
