Universal Orlando Resort recently invited me to attend a special media preview of Universal's Aventura Hotel. They generously provided me with room accommodations and park tickets during our stay. Thoughts and opinions on Universal's Aventura Hotel and Universal Orlando Resort are my own.

Sleek, stylish, and chic, Universal's Aventura Hotel has officially opened, marking its place in the Orlando skyline. I had the special opportunity to preview it before its grand opening, and it is absolutely incredible.

Universal's Aventura Hotel is a Prime Value hotel that offers modern sophistication at an affordable price point. The resort's emphasis on technology also elevated this concept. Each room is equipped with an iPad that controls everything from the TV to the lights, and you can even order food through it, too.

There's really something for everyone here, especially when it comes to the food. Its food hall Urban Pantry offers fresh, crafted selections including sushi, burgers, pizza and international fare.

What I love most about the hotel has to be the surreal views. Whether from the floor to ceiling windows in each room or from the rooftop Bar 17 Bistro, the views of Orlando are breathtaking.

If you're looking for a new way to experience Orlando, Universal's Aventura Hotel is just the place to visit. I had so much fun previewing the hotel and all of its offerings, and can't wait to visit again soon!

Disney recently invited me to a special media event to enjoy all the fun of Toy Story Land! They so generously provided me with complementary tickets, dining gift cards and a few of the products available for purchase at Toy Story Land. Thoughts and opinions on Toy Story Land and its offerings are my own.

You can take a girl out of the '90s, but you can't take the '90s out of the girl. Located at Disney's Studios, Toy Story Land is the park's newest addition, and I was lucky enough to experience it for the first time last week. The colors, the sounds, the views... it's incredible! 

"Toy Story" was one of my favorite films growing up, and if I'm being honest, still is. So, when Disney invited me to come play in Andy's backyard for the day, I was thrilled.

When you arrive at Toy Story Land, everything is large-scale because you're "shrunk" down to the size of a toy. Then, it's time to play BIG!

We started out at Slinky Dog Dash, a fun-filled roller coaster with plenty of twists, turns and just the right amount of speed. I loved it, and this was probably my favorite part of Toy Story Land. Thanks to the FastPasses that Disney gave us, we rode it three times!

We also took a spin at Alien's Swirling Saucers. If you're a fan of the Mad Tea Party at Magic Kingdom, this ride is for you! It was too cute with the little green aliens everywhere and the space-infused music from the series.

For breakfast, we grabbed a bite at Woody's Lunch Box, a quick service option with the yummiest options! I had the Banana Split Yogurt Parfait, and it was delicious. Jesse chose the Smoked Turkey Breakfast Sandwich and loved it. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can view the full menu here.

Afterwards, we rode Midway Mania. Although we've been on this ride way too many times to count, it was just as fun as ever! I love the new entrance. Oh, and that popsicle stick wall? Find it at the exit of this attraction!

All in all, Toy Story Land is worth a visit. Actually, it's worth a lot of visits because there's just so much to take in. I loved all the details that were so true to the toys that I grew up with. I can't wait to go back!

Thanks again to Disney for inviting me to this special event!

Hilton Bonnet Creek invited me to stay the weekend and enjoy the resort's numerous amenities during my stay, including complementary accommodations, select dining options and golf activities. While I partnered with Hilton Bonnet Creek on this post, opinions and thoughts on my experience are my own.

Living in the midst of the magic, it's always so fun to take a break and soak it all up! I recently visited Hilton Bonnet Creek to do just that. Located near the Walt Disney World Resort, Hilton Bonnet Creek has access to all of the fun of the parks, sans hustle and bustle of busy vacations. It was so nice to relax, unwind and recharge during a staycation to the resort and its sister property, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. I had the best time!

What I loved most about this resort were all of the amenities and having access to the Waldorf Astoria's amenities as well during our stay. From the 3-acre lazy river (um, yes) to the golf course, Jesse and I were living our best lives. The resort also offers complementary transportation to the Disney parks, and while we didn't utilize this service, it seemed exceptionally easy to access.

Oh, and the food? So. Good. We had dinner the first night at La Luce, the resort's signature restaurant featuring Italian cuisine. It was incredible. We also enjoyed breakfast at Harvest Bistro, the perfect place to start the day before a day full of fun!

Overall, we had such an amazing weekend and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the resort! We can't thank Hilton Bonnet Creek enough for their incredible hospitality and service during our stay. I'd highly recommend checking into Hilton Bonnet Creek on your next visit (or staycation) in Orlando.
