About Me!

Welcome! I am Jane-Ellen (JE) I'm a travel agent and I am happy to share with you my love of travel. I am not a journalist, I simply enjoy traveling. My favorite travel destinations are Walt Disney World, Cruises and anywhere on our Harley. My husband, Steve and I are out on our Harley when time, work and weather permit. We try to take weekend trips whenever possible.
Walt Disney World has been a favorite spot to vacation since our first trip in 1983. We have had over 30 weeklong vacations and now living in Florida we visit monthly, although recently I find myself there weekly. Hey I am doing research!
Cruising is another passion. We have been on many cruises, predominately in the Caribbean. A seven day cruise is the best way to really unwind and relax; but if a three or four day cruise crosses our path, we set sail. I am an Accredited Cruise Councilor, and a Certified Travel Councilor. I have the highest level of education from all major cruise lines.
Many clients have asked for insider tips for Disney World and cruising. That is my goal to offer insider information on Disney, Cruises and biking.

New Disney Art of Animation Resort to Open 2012

Walt Disney World is about to begin building its first new hotel in seven years, a 2,000-room resort that will open in 2012.

Disney's Art of Animation Resort will feature 1,120 family suites with room for as many as six people each; the remainder of the rooms will be standard single rooms. The resort will be a ‘value’ resort similar to Pop Century and All Stars. The rates begin at $82 per night for those resorts.


The resort will be built on 65-acres across a lake from Disney's Pop Century Resort. The location will allow Disney to use a pair of long-neglected, unfinished buildings that Disney originally constructed as a second phase of Pop Century but which it abandoned amid the 2001 recession.

Each area of Art of Animation will feature different
animated movie: The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Cars.

The majority of its rooms will be six-person suites, the resort will have the same capacity as Pop Century, which has 2,800 standard rooms. The thought is that Disney would like to compete with Nickelodeon’s family suite resort located just off Disney’s property.
