Miles to Memories Recap
Welcome to the weekly “Best of” Miles to Memories recap series. Each Sunday we roundup all of the best posts and deals from the past week in one easy and convenient place! Some deals die quickly, so make sure to subscribe to our daily newsletter so you don’t miss out and join our miles/points Facebook Group for daily discussion and exclusives not available anywhere else!
I am traveling right now with my family in Asia. Follow along on Instagram as well!
This week on the site I talked about solo travel for children, Mark talked about downgrading his Amex Plat card and we also covered the 8 new Thompson hotels that are now bookable with Hyatt points. We also covered some upsetting (for some) upcoming Disney changes among many many other things. Don’t forget to join our new Disney Hacks Worldwide Facebook Group for more great Disney content.
To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!

When you have one last day in Shanghai without a hotel booked and you wake up to see clear skies you go high! Love the views (this is from the lounge) from this hotel. Yes, the Park Hyatt is higher, but I like Grand Hyatt just a bit better. And as a Globalist we got a suite, lounge access and one last birthday celebration for Ellie! @grandhyatt_shanghai @parkhyattshanghai #WorldofHyatt #stunning #views #highrise #skyscraper #viewfrombed #familyadventure #familytravel #familytrip #familyrtw #milestomemories #WorldofHyatt @hyatt @grandhyatt #Shanghai #China #nodisneytoday
