With pent up demand, and recovering economy, the travel in Florida is about to be as hot as the weather this summer. Studies have shown the number of citizens looking to take a summer vacation has nearly doubled since the summer of 2020, which just over half expecting to travel to Orlando. While this is great news for the local economy, what does this mean for a local traveler?
When looking at local attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, you may find limited resort hotel accommodations, scarce park pass reservations, or feel clueless when it comes to coveted dining reservations. When traveling abroad, you may feel overwhelmed by COVID-19 restrictions or protocols in new places, confused by long waiting lists for cruises, or price hikes during certain seasons and popular travel dates. Now more than ever, the services and expertise provided by a professional Travel Advisor are invaluable!
Planning a vacation to somewhere like Walt Disney World isn’t as easy as a walk in the park… nor is actually enjoying the park as easy as you might think it is. Having a travel advisor specializing in Disney Destinations can be the key to the kingdom, providing essentially your own Jiminy Cricket to handle your travel from top to bottom. Are your little ones ecstatic about eating with famous friends? Perhaps at Chef Mickey’s, which is now taking character dining reservations! Are you long time Disney fans, and beyond excited for the 50th Anniversary Celebration starting soon in October, featuring the grand opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at Epcot?
The real reason I suggest different Disney Destinations to my clients is because Disney is so trusted within the industry for upholding guidelines as recommended by the CDC as well as knowing how to keep the magic alive! With a little bit of pixie dust, they have made small changes to alter the experience to be safe and seamless for all Guests. This summer will be particularly exciting, with more Disney Resort Hotels reopening, new attractions like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and Character Cavalcades – which have quickly become the fan favorite way of meeting popular Disney friends! Many Guests will also celebrate the new face mask policy Walt Disney World announced recently stating:
“Face coverings for each Guest ages 2 and up—must be worn in all indoor locations but can be removed in outdoor common areas with the exception that Guests must wear face coverings starting from the entrances at all attractions, theaters or transportation and throughout those experiences.”
With almost 40% of the population fully vaccinated, and half of the population having received at least one dose of the vaccine, intergenerational families are beginning to not only feel safe traveling, but confident in having a fully fledged fun summer vacation enjoying resort pools, dining and other amenities recently affected by COVID-19.
