It’s hard to think of anything other than summer fun in the July heat, but winter will be here before you know it. At Get Away Today we’re already getting calls from families who know it’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays. If you’re toying with the idea of visiting Disneyland or surprising your family with a vacation this holiday season, NOW is the time to start planning. It’s no secret that one of my favorite destinations is Disneyland and I absolutely LOVE Disneyland over the holidays. In fact, I love it so much I’m in the process of planning my own family’s trip for December. Here are some of the whys and hows of getting your family’s holiday trip to Disneyland on the books today!
Summertime is here and that means summer vacations are just around the corner! Disneyland is without a doubt one of the most popular summer vacation destinations. It’s true that summer time is known as a busy time for Disneyland, but that certainly doesn’t mean you should delay a trip because of it. There is so much to do at the Disneyland Resort – even during busy travel times. Of course, it’s nice to visit when crowds are low, but there are some perks to visiting during summer – extended hours and seasonal entertainment are just a couple.
Here is my top 20 list of favorite things to do at Disneyland, when it’s crowded. Oh, AND…did you hear how Disneyland raised their prices?? Well, I can still get you the old price for about one more week, plus save you a few more bucks! …come read the rest of the post!
It’s hard to imagine, but summer is right around the corner. With the season, a lot of things come to mind, but let’s not forget the most important – family vacation! I firmly believe that the most fun way to strengthen a family is through vacationing together. Luckily, I’m not the only one who thinks so. In fact, one of the hottest travel trends of 2013 is what’s coming to be known as family gathering vacations.
When I say family gathering vacations, I’m not talking about traditional family reunions where you have over 100 people and can’t possibly connect with everyone—although those can be fun too. Family gathering vacations are right in between the extended family reunion and a standard family vacation, where just grandparents, their adult children and their kids (the grandchildren), or similar family groupings get together for an unforgettable vacation together.
My husband and I have been lucky enough to do a few of these vacations with both sides of our families and I can honestly say that everything is more fun with the ones you love – especially vacations! We have made so many memories that we simply wouldn’t have made otherwise. But, perfect family gatherings don’t just happen. Since Get Away Today is an expert on family vacations, I’ve compiled our best travel tips for planning a successful, stress-free family gathering vacation:
