No need to abandon your diet or be concerned about food allergies while on a magical Disney vacation. Due to recent changes at the resorts and at the theme parks, there are now plenty of delicious, allergy-free options available for guests of all ages. With so many people in the world today on special or restricted diets (low fat, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, vegan, kosher, lactose intolerant, nut, and shellfish allergies, just to name a few), the folks at Disney certainly stepped up to the plate by now offering a multitude of dining options to satisfy just about every possible dietary requirement. With careful planning and attention to menu selections, you will easily be able to find flavorful, healthy, and safe food choices available throughout all of the Walt Disney World parks.
Recently, TripAdvisor released its annual Travelers' Choice Landmarks of 2015. These amazing and beautiful landmarks located all over the world have a couple things in common. For one, they all have unique offerings of things to do and see. Secondly, many of them have luxury accommodations available through Hilton Grand Vacations Club membership. Unlike many vacation clubs that limit owners to particular resorts or regions, HGVC allows members to visit some of the most incredible destinations in the world! In this post we'll take a lot at some of the Traveler's Choice Landmarks of 2015 and how HGVC membership can take you there.

Sitting in the middle of Disney's Bay Lake is an underdeveloped, overgrown, and abandoned island that really doesn't look like much from a distance. But actually, this little island holds a ton of history, a lot of memories, and even a little Disney magic!
Every day at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you can step back in time and experience a traditional British-style afternoon tea.
Escape to the serene setting of the Garden View Lounge and treat yourself to the tea experience daily from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Located on the first floor of the lobby of this Disney Vacation Club resort, afternoon tea is the perfect getaway for a Mother/Daughter Date, a Girl's Day Out, a relaxing respite for couples, or a personal break from the hustle and bustle of being at the Disney parks all day. To add to the ambiance, each day at 3 p.m., live music starts to drift throughout the tea room provided by a professional piano performer or the delightfully-distinguished Disney Band.
Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC) is known for their luxurious resorts and top-notch treatment of their guests. Even though there are over 3,600 properties in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio, every once in a while a new resort comes along that needs to steal the spotlight for a at least a moment. This July, Hilton Vacation Club will be opening its newest addition, the profoundly luxurious oceanfront resort Ocean 22.
Located on the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, this resort offers 220 top-of-the-line opulent rooms that are fit for royalty. This all-suite resort is truly one of a kind, and the location couldn't be more desirable. It is located within minutes of famous local attractions such as Broadway at the Beach, multiple grand golf courses, and many country music spots, such as The Bowery and The Carolina Opry. It is just two blocks from the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and eight blocks from the ever-popular Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.

Since the summer of 2014, rumors have been swirling about the expansion of Disney's Wilderness Lodge! For quite some time now, there has been mention of turning the well-established Wilderness Lodge hotel rooms into DVC villas. Last week on May 15th, Disney filed a permit with South Florida Water Management District which confirmed that Disney is moving ahead with their plans for waterside vacation villas at the Wilderness Lodge!
Many current owners refer to DVC membership as "a dream come true" but the realization of this dream requires a rather significant financial obligation. For some, financing is the only way to make purchasing Disney Vacation Club affordable, while for others, financing can reduce the burden of the substantial initial costs. We examined several of the strongest opportunities for financing DVC and have compiled our research below to help make this process easier and the possibility of DVC ownership achievable.

This week, TripAdvisor released their yearly Travelers’ Choice Awards featuring the Top 10 Islands in the World of 2015. Not surprisingly, Hawaii’s gorgeous Maui came in 2nd place, right behind the exquisite Turks and Caicos. Because Maui is so luxurious and popular, you may think that staying there at a resort is an extremely pricey and exclusive experience. While a stay at a Maui resort is definitely a luxury vacation, it is by no means beyond reach. By belonging to any Vacation Club, the opportunity to stay in paradise without breaking the bank is a reality.
