There was a time when I was a HUGE fan of Disney and be it the parks, the movies, the music, you name it, I was a walking, talking Disney encyclopedia. For years before Joe and I took the leap and moved to Central Florida, if friends, family or co-workers had a question about going to Walt Disney World (WDW), be it during which part of the year they should go, what they should do or where they should eat, they’d ask me. My people from up north still ask me those kinds of questions, just via Facebook private messages rather than in person, and although I’m not “in the know” as much as I used to be, I still help them out as much as I can.
With one-day, one-park ticket prices to the parks now varying from at least $110 to $169 per day (based on season, theme park and when you buy your tickets, because yes, Disney has now thrown those factors into the mix. Let’s just say I don’t recommend going to the Magic Kingdom on the weekend in the summer. Oh, and don’t even THINK about park hopping because that will cost you even more), the often-asked question of, “How can I get discounted tickets to WDW?” has now turned into a HUGE question.

It hasn’t been very long since the theme for the 2019 version of ICE! at the Gaylord Palm Resort & Convention centers was announced (Psst! It’s going to be The Polar Express).

Here’s what we’ve found so far:

It’s a story that’s gone from triumph to tragedy and is on its way to triumph again.
Bungalow Key Largo, billed as the first all-inclusive resort in the Florida Keys, opened in December, 2018. An adults-only luxury waterfront property just an hour south of Miami, it was destined for greatness. After all, it had a 4.5 star rating on Trip Advisor and had gotten the attention of the likes of TravelPulse, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, and other travel-related social media outlets.
Unfortunately, less than half a year after this brand-new resort opened, it caught on fire.
Of course, the first thing any owner says is that they will rebuild, but so many times they just…don’t.
That’s not the case for Bungalows Key Largo.

When you think of Florida as a tourist destination, you imagine a lot of things – sunshine, beaches, the theme parks of the Orlando area, the history of St. Augustine, the laid back feelings of Key West, etc. But there’s one thing most people don’t think about.
But thanks to some innovative people, that might be about to change.

Just like clockwork, every autumn, migrations to Florida and Arizona happen. Except it’s not snowbirds, or even real birds, that are migrating.
It’s rental cars.
While it’s cold in much of the rest of the country, it stays toasty warm in Florida and Arizona, so, of course, a lot of people flock to those states during the winter months. Lots of those tourists will want to rent cars, so instead of bringing them here by the truckload, the car rental companies make it financially lucrative for customers to drive their cars from up north to select cities in the Sunshine State and the Grand Canyon State.
And the time of the year that they do this is now.
