Celebrate Women

We are celebrating Women’s History and Women all month long. What better way to celebrate women than to support their small businesses.

When the pandemic hit, many people lost their jobs or had to abandon them to stay home with children that were unable to go to school. Now as we slowly start to rebuild, small businesses need our help and support more than ever. During this month that we devote to celebrate amazing women of our past, present, and future, do your part to support women owned and operated business.

I am a travel professional helping guests travel to all corners of the world with Disney through parks, Aulani, cruising, and Adventures by Disney. Disney is truly a passion of mine. I also help guests with their Universal Studios travel and have recently became trained and certified in several cruise lines (Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Virgin) and all-inclusive resorts (Sandals, Club Med). I do this because I love to travel myself and I really enjoy helping others turn their travel dreams into memories that will last a lifetime.

If you are unable or not ready to travel at this moment, you can still support your favorite travel agent! Here are a few ways:

  • Like their posts on social media
  • Comment on their posts
  • Leave a review
  • Give them a shout out
  • Refer them to friends and family

That last one is probably the most important. A referral from a previous guest is one of the highest compliments an agent can receive. Also, we can work with anyone, anywhere. It does not have to be someone local.

I thank you for your continued business and support. It means so much!

National Plan For A Vacation Day!

The last Tuesday of January is National Plan for a Vacation Day. It comes at a perfect time – the holidays are over, the weather is miserable, and there are no school breaks to look forward to for a while.

Having a vacation planned gives families something to look forward to together. When we have a Disney trip planned, we do family movie nights each weekend. One night, we make diner together and watch a different Disney Movie. If I am feeling really crafty, I will plan the dinner around the movie – Spaghetti & meatballs with Lady & The Tramp, Hawaiian Chicken with Moana, Pizza with Toy Story, Beef & Broccoli with Mulan…etc. Even as my littles are not so little anymore, this is something we all look forward to through the week and gets us talking about or exciting trip ahead.

Planning ahead also has a lot of benefits – you can spread out payments over several months and have longer to save for all the fun treats & souvenirs. You can take advantage of promotions as they come along as long as there is availability. You also have a better chance of getting the resort/ship & room category you prefer before they sell out. Let’s not forget the 180-day advanced dining reservations that are so coveted. Planning ahead gives you all of these advantages and more!

Which Disney Destination will you visit in 2020? Maybe it is time to try something new?! If you cruise often but haven’t checked out a Disney Cruise, it is time you see why they win all the awards that they do year after year. If you visit Disney World each year, step out of the box! Visit the west coast and see Disneyland or try a Disney Cruise. Looking to travel abroad to where your ancestors are from? Adventures by Disney has amazing options all around the globe that will have you experiencing other countries like you never thought you could.

Contact me today so we can “Plan For A Vacation”! My planning services are free of charge and I can assist you with stress-free preparations for a Magical Trip. Let’s get you something to be excited about in 2020!

Disney Cruise Line Purchases New Land

© Disney

With the upcoming addition of 3 new Ships and the itineraries they will add, Disney Cruise Line has decided they need an additional “Private” Beach.

Earlier this year, Disney Cruise Line purchased a new patch of land in the Bahamas. The beautiful island of Eleuthera has a lush area called Lighthouse Point. It is here where Disney will start constructing as soon as Environmental Plans and assessments are completed.

Since 2007, Disney has been putting a lot of focus on conservation and protecting our environment. Disney has been donating millions each year to protect and rehab coral reefs, especially in the Bahamas. The Government of the Bahamas and Disney have agreed upon the practices that they will use to construct on the land as well as the pier. Disney is looking to leave as little footprint as possible, agreeing to only develop 20% of the property and use sustainable building practices throughout construction. Also, instead of dredging a typical cruise ship channel, Disney Cruise Line will be building an open-trestle pier to lessen the impact on the environment.

One of the most exciting parts of the development of this island is the Imagineer that will be a very large part of design. Joe Rohde was at the forefront of design for Animal Kingdom and he also helped design Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii. When Joe is part of a project, you can feel the dedication and the love that went into it so I cannot wait to see what he does with this beautiful land. He has already spent a lot of time in Eleuthera meeting with locals and gaining knowledge of the art & culture. This will definitely be reflected in Lighthouse Point which is set to celebrate the culture of The Bahamas. Here is a video where Joe discusses this project and also gives a glimpse of Lighthouse Point-

Disney Cruise Line is hoping to begin construction in 2020 with completion around the end of 2021 or early 2022. Stay tuned for details!!
