In this month’s blog, we are excited to share with you the exciting things on the horizon for the new year in the world of travel, including what we are seeing within Magical Memory Planners.
On the Rise!
Cruise vacations for 2022 are increasing. The majority of our clients are traveling with Royal Caribbean and/or Disney Cruise Line. Many of the MMP agents have been on board the ships over the last few months and both cruise lines have excellent safety protocols. If you have questions or concerns about what cruising looks like in this new climate, just reach out and we will match you with one of our agents that has cruised recently. Royal Caribbean has some enticing rates and Disney Cruise Line is offering half-priced deposits. It is definitely a good time to plan a cruise.
“THE WINDS THAT SOMETIMES TAKE SOMETHING WE LOVE, ARE THE SAME THAT BRING US SOMETHING WE LEARN TO LOVE.” -Bob Marley
Bob Marley sure knew what he was talking about! Travel to the Caribbean is on the rise! Of course, vaccinated travelers can visit any Caribbean destination, but there are also locations that are welcoming everyone. The Caribbean has great protocols in place and in most cases will take care of all the testing for your return to the U.S., making it effort free. An all-inclusive resort is a great alternative for families that are not quite ready to cruise. The first step to enjoying the beautiful Caribbean waters is to make sure you have a valid passport (valid for 6 months past your travel dates). If you plan on going to the Caribbean anytime in 2022, the sooner you get your passport or renew your passport, the better.
Universal Studios Orlando
Another amazing destination is right here in the United States! Universal Studios Orlando is an amazing destination for 2022. Three of their onsite resorts offer the incredible unlimited express pass option for free. To sweeten the deal further, there are many money saving offers available throughout the year. Guests often find that a Universal vacation is a stress-free theme park vacation. With THREE theme parks to choose from (Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure & Volcano Bay), you could easily stretch this to a full 5 day vacation and never run out of fun.
Walt Disney World
The home of our FAVORITE mouse, Walt Disney World, is always a very popular destinations. And now as they as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary, the magic is immeasurable. With two new fireworks shows, Enchantment and Harmonious amazing food items, and beautiful decor there is much to experience. ALSO, 2022 is the year that we finally see the return of RunDisney races, Festival of the Arts, Flower and Garden Festival, and Food and Wine Festival, as well as special tours and entertainment.
With all these amazing options, it truly is a GREAT time to travel!
