Why You Should Choose Glamping as Your Next Getaway

People either love to going camping or they don’t. There doesn’t seem to be any in between view.

Glamping Getaway

Camping is one of those amazing experiences that many adore. Getting back to nature and taking in the beautiful views while enjoying a campfire and s’mores is exhilarating to say the least. The truth is though, for many people, going deep into the wilderness to pitch a tent can be a little too rugged.

For those who love getting away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city but would rather not climb into a stuffy sleeping bag at the end of the day, there is an option. Glamping!

Glamping is quite literally an amalgamation of camping and luxury. It’s a glamourous way to enjoy the great outdoors and sleep under the stars while keeping the comforts of home.

There are many reasons to choose glamping as your next getaway, especially if you want many of the benefits of camping without any of the discomforts.

Comfort

When you go glamping, you are essentially “roughing it”, but without the “roughness” part.

No need for you to bring a tent that forces you to contort into strange shapes just to enter and exit. Glamping means a tall canvas tent with room to move. Not only that but you won’t have to sleep on the ground as you will have real beds to sleep in, all while enjoying the fresh air of the great outdoors.

When you go glamping you will have access to many amenities you wouldn’t otherwise have if you went traditional camping, like electrical outlets.

Locations

Glamping can take you places that resorts and hotels just can’t. You could be waking up on a private island, or just steps away from the beach. As soon as you leave your room you will be right in the middle of nature and it doesn’t get much better than that.

Cost

Living luxuriously in a yurt, tent, teepee or cabin doesn’t have to put a large strain on your finances. In reality, glamping can turn out to be much less expensive than a hotel. Just make sure to shop around and do some research. Technically, camping can end up being quite expensive as well considering all the equipment and gear you will require. Glamping is a fantastic alternative to both camping and hotels.

Good for Beginners

When glamping, you are rarely required to bring much equipment. You won’t have to worry about remembering a rain cover or a camp stove. There are very little skills required to go glamping. This makes it perfect for beginners.

Glamping allows you to have a comfortable, cost effective outdoor experience with several different location options. When booking your next travel experience, glamping is a fantastic choice, and you don’t have to be a camping expert to enjoy it!

 




Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista at Disney Springs – The Perfect Place to Stay!

Wyndham Disney Springs

Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista at Disney Springs is one of the seven Disney Springs Resort hotels and the closest of the seven to Disney Springs. It is less than a five minute walk across the street right into all that Disney Springs offers.

I’ve stayed here several times and I’m always blown away by what a great resort it is. You feel as if you are on Disney property without paying Disney on-site prices. Because I visit Walt Disney World multiple times per year, being able to save some money without giving up quality, is always high on my list.

The Wyndham offers continuous transportation to all of the Walt Disney World theme parks that run every 30 minutes. The hotel offers a variety of food beverage options including a full service restaurant, room service, pool bar & grill, 24 Hour Cafe and lobby lounge.

And . . . a Disney Character Breakfast on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings that is a fraction of the cost of any Disney character breakfast and just as good (the characters are official characters that come over to the resort from Disney!).

Beginning in January, 2018, the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels offer major perks to their guests. In addition to your extremely affordable stay at the Wyndham, you will now have access to many of the same benefits as Disney Resort on-site guests:

  • Extra Magic Hours
  • You can link your room reservation with your My Disney Experience account.
  • You can purchase park tickets in the hotel or online in advance of your stay and link them to your MDE account to book your FastPass+ selections at 60 days – the same time as Disney Resort on-site guests!
  • Book on-property golf tee times 90 days in advance with greens fees and rental equipment discounts.
  • Disney Springs Passport Coupons full of discounts.

Each of the guest rooms are spacious and clean and come equipped with plush bedding, high-speed wireless Internet access, 37-inch HDTV flat-screen TV, mini refrigerator and an in-room safe.

All of the employees at the Wyndham are friendly and go out of their way to help with anything you need. My all time favorite guy is Shelton in Bell Services. You will never find a happier and more eager to please employee anywhere. I always look forward to seeing him when I stay at this resort.

As an added bonus when you stay in one of the tower rooms there’s a good chance you will have a Disney view! You’ll be able to see the fireworks right from your room!

Overall, I highly recommend staying here if you want to feel like you are staying in Disney without paying Disney’s on-site higher prices. The resort is great, the prices are great, and you’ll get many of the same perks you get while staying at a Disney on-site resort.

Also, I have heard some really good things about Wyndham Bonnet Creek timeshare resales right down the road. The location is a timeshare resort, and if you buy or rent a timeshare on the secondary resale market, you can get up to 50% off a week’s stay. What could be better than that?

I was provided a highly discounted stay for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.

 




Eating in Animal Kingdom for $14.99 and Under

We’ve come to the end of our series on eating at the Disney Parks for $14.99 and under and are finishing up with Animal Kingdom. In case you missed them, be sure to check out our Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios posts for eating in each of those parks for $14.99 and Under.

As a frequent WDW visitor, I don’t always make dining reservations and prefer to eat in quick service locations to save time and money, so Julia’s list is a big help for me!

Budget Food Animal Kingdom

Here are some ways Julia beats the high cost of food when visiting Epcot:

I often order kid’s meals at quick service locations. They are more than enough food and much less expensive! Some of the lunch and breakfast items at Animal Kingdom are ideal for using the kid’s meal rule – they are more than enough for an adult. The portions are large and offer the meal along with a small drink and some fruit. Don’t forget – some snack or dessert items are HUGE and can be a special treat to have dessert for lunch! Live it up! You’re on vacation!

For some reason, some items cost more in one location than another and I don’t know why. If an item is on the list, it is at the cheaper location (Turkey leg in MK is currently $10.99 but in EPCOT is $11.75 and in AK it’s $14.50 w/chips! Cheese sauce is $1.00 in MK and HS but only $.75 in Epcot). This seems to be the case with some alcoholic drinks too. TIP: EPCOT is the priciest of parks when it comes to food and drinks, but also has some items/drinks you can’t find in other parks.

Continuing with the discussion started last week (Eating in the Magic Kingdom for $14.99 and Under) of eating in the Disney parks for $14.99 and under, Epcot is next up on the list. The choices in Epcot are much better than in any other park simply because of the number of food outlets available. Since food is one of the most expensive items (after accommodations and park passes) added to any Walt Disney World Resort vacation, contributor Julia has compiled her money saving tips for eating in each park for a bargain – be sure to check back next week for Eating in Hollywood Studios for $14.99 and Under.
