5 Solo Travel Essentials You MUST HAVE to Stay Safe at Walt Disney World

What are the solo travel essentials you need for your vacation?

As you would imagine, Disney is probably a secure safe haven for us all where we can unwind, relax and know that we are, for the most part, always going to be well taken care of.

Nonetheless, it is important that we remember that one of Disney’s keys to guest satisfaction is “Safety.”

With that being said, guests as well as Cast Members should be on their guard and make sure themselves and everyone around them are safe to enjoy everything the parks have to offer.

SeaWorld Orlando Turtle Trek

4 BEST SeaWorld Orlando Rides You MUST DO!

Are you ready to take on the BEST SeaWorld Orlando rides for your visit?

Even this solo traveler has some firsts and recently, I completed another one!

At the urging of some friends, I was convinced to visit SeaWorld Orlando for the first time ever. I went in with little research, which I would never recommend you do.

The only reason I didn’t was that I was being guided by very knowledgeable and trusting annual passholder friends and I wanted my experience to be pure.

SeaWorld Orlando opened just two years after Magic Kingdom on December 15, 1973.

With the addition of Discovery Cove and Aquatica parks, it’s the third of the SeaWorld Chain and the message and theme is the same: Conservation and the Ocean.

Almost 50 years since its opening, the park brings in 4.6 million visitors every year.

Secrets Revealed: Disneyland Mint Julep Recipe!

The Mint Julep is the Kardashian of Disneyland drinks. By that, I mean to say it is that super-famous thing you either love or hate.

Quite an eventful life for a non-alcoholic drink, wouldn’t you say?

But all the drama aside, it is a very refreshing drink that is perfect for hot summer days. And YOU should know how to make it!
