One of the things that sets Get Away Today apart from other agencies is that fact that our agents explore our most popular vacation destinations. In fact, right now we have two agents on their way to Turks & Caicos and one headed to Mexico! But, our biggest trip of the year is to California and we take a big group. Our staff just returned from our 15th Annual Familiarization Trip in Southern California and our agents got to experience the Disneyland Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, Carlsbad and San Diego. We spend our days touring hotels and playing at attractions. The idea is that we get first-hand information and then pass it on to our guests. We get to see the Best of Southern California. It’s pretty great. Here are some of the standouts from this trip that we recommend to make your next vacation even better:
- Universal Studios VIP Tour – We got to go backstage on Universal’s famous Studio Backlot with a private shuttle and get a Front of the Line pass for the best Universal attractions. Our team got to get out at the sets that the normal tram just passes by and got to go on the set for Parenthood. When you get the VIP Tour ticket, you really feel like they’ve rolled out the red carpet!
- The Disneyland Hotel – Our team got to stay here this trip and it is the most magical of all of the hotels. Plus, when we pulled up to check-in, there just happened to be a fairy tale wedding taking place. We couldn’t have had better timing! Some other things that we love about staying at the Disneyland Hotel are the light-up Sleeping Beauty headboards in the room, early entry into a Disneyland theme park each day, and being in the middle of the magic. As a side note, right now you can save up to 25% for travel January – April 2014 on the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. If you’re headed to Disneyland this spring, it’s well worth the upgrade!
- The new LEGOLAND Hotel in Carlsbad is amazing and was an instant hit with our staff. Our group walked in the lobby and headed straight for the LEGO pit to start building. All of the rooms are themed (pick from Pirate, Adventure or Kingdom), the pool is great, and it’s right next door to LEGOLAND. As an added perk, hotel guests can get into the Park before the general public. This is one hotel I will definitely be taking my son to!
- The beautiful shoreline and views in San Diego were amazing as always. Our hotels all looked so great and we had a blast at the Zoo, SeaWorld and exploring the city.
