About Us

Welcome to the Magical Resorts Guide. My name is Jennifer and along with my husband Chris and baby Mason, we are out searching for adventure in the most magical place on earth.
Traveling has always been something we love. Finding the perfect getaway to make magical memories with our family is at the top of our list and over the past 10 years the Disney properties have continued to welcome us home. We have always been lifelong Disney animation fans but fell in love with the theme parks as adults and now we are all about resort life! The immersive theming, smells and sounds of the perfect resort can whisk you away on an unforgettable vacation.

So we decided to make it our mission to stay in all 18 Walt Disney World resort hotels by the end of 2022 and are calling it our “Disney Resort Challenge”. We want to share all of our experiences, tips, the best and the worst so that you can choose the best resort for your next Disney family vacation. 

Come join us! We are passionate about creating easy and relaxing Disney trips for our family and are excited to share not only our Disney knowledge but also all of our packing and budgeting tips. A vacation at a Disney resort doesn’t have to be an overwhelming experience. Let us show you the magic of a Disney resort stay!

So you might be saying, but Jennifer there are more than 18 Disney Resorts. And you would be correct! But in order to make this challenge one that could be completed by non-Florida residents in one year, we came up with a few ground rules.

All resorts need to have a standard room category option.

All resorts must be either considered value, moderate, or deluxe. 

Resorts may have a DVC option on property but can’t be strictly DVC. This knocks out places like Old Key West and Saratoga Springs. We are sticking with just Disney resort rooms and will look at exploring DVC properties during a different challenge.

Resorts must have a room only booking option. This will take away the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. And even though we plan to stay there in the future, we don’t feel as though it would be fair for it to be a part of this challenge.
