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.

Vacation Lodge in Kissimmee Burns

A fire overnight at the Vacation Lodge on Irlo Bronson Hwy in Kissimmee has completely destroyed the motel. The fire and subsequent roof collapse has rendered the 40 year old building, located one mile from Walt Disney World, uninhabitable.

This is a good time to talk about fire safety and hotel stays. The first item of business when checking into a hotel/motel is, much like the safety demo on a plane, to locate your exits in the event of an emergency. Whether your hotel/motel has interior hallways or your door opens directly to the outside, you need to locate two ways to escape in an emergency. The closest emergency exits are listed on the back of your room door. 

The first rule of thumb when a fire breaks out is to get out quickly and safely. You cannot and should not try to bring all your belongings but if you keep your important documents such as passports.  If you plan ahead you will have peace of mind.

Keep safety in mind, even on vacation!
