Hi! I’m Tara from Travel Plus Family and my blog is all about celebrating two of my biggest loves – my family and travel! Family travel is near and dear to my heart. Not only do I have wonderful childhood memories of vacations, I feel that family getaways have the ability to create a stronger family bond. These getaways don’t always have to be elaborate or exotic, but they do require a disconnection from our daily routines. I hope you read through some of our family adventures and find inspiration to create your own memories!

Disneyland - Good Neighbor Hotel - Courtyard Anaheim Theme Park

The latest article is about our recent stay at Courtyard Anaheim Theme Park entrance hotel. This good neighbor hotel is ideally located to the Disneyland parks. Standard rooms have two queen beds, bunk beds, and two showers. This hotel is great for families traveling to Disneyland together. P.S. It has a waterpark the kids will LOVE. Click on the title above to read more about this Disneyland hotel.

My first trip to a Disney park was back in 1983 and I’ve been a Disney addict ever since. But the true magic of Disney didn’t honestly hit home until a trip to Disneyland with my daughter. She was only 3 years old at the time and my eyes still sting with tears from the memory of watching her get lost into a world of imagination! If you are planning a Disney trip, then this page is your go-to resource for information!

After experiencing a wonderful vacation to Puerto Vallarta booked by Megan at Paradise Travel, I wrote this blog post about how awesome the experience was booking with a travel agent. Soon after, Megan and I discussed the opportunity of me becoming an agent! Um, YES! If my personal experience had been anything short of amazing, I would not have said yes.

I would LOVE to book travel for my blog readers! I will be focusing on destinations that I have personally experienced, such as Disney, Caribbean, Cruises, and Mexico!!! If you have a travel dream, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for a FREE vacation quote.

In October 2013, we took a family vacation to Tucson, Arizona. The destination was selected based on two factors, we wanted to drive, and we wanted to stay at a JW Marriott property. The year before, we had stayed at JW Marriot in San Antonio and really loved the amenities of the resort, so we were anxious to stay at another resort in the JW Marriott family.
