Whether it be the decorative Tree Trail at Disney Springs, offering a dozen of Disney Themed Tree to enjoy.  Or all the new stores and restaurants to experience while listening to the Christmas Carols.

Or perhaps you prefer just taking is slow.   Then maybe the place for you is the Grand Floridian Resort, just a monorail ride to the Magic Kingdom.   Here you can sit and enjoy the beautiful Victorian surrounding.  Enjoy the sounds of Christmas, and the scent of gingerbread wafting through the air.   You can spend hours just sitting and enjoying this beautiful space.   dsc03938

But there is more…   Disney offers multiple special events during the holidays, the popular being Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.   Here you will find cookie trails, cocoa, eggnog, hot cider.  Where it snows on Main Street USA and the most spectacular parade and decorations you’ve ever seen.

It may be too late for this year, but you can already book your 2017 holiday travel.   Christmas time at Disney World and Disneyland start the second week of November, for the purposes of the party and decor.   And run through the end of the year.    It’s only a $200 down payment for a Disney Resort Package Reservation.    It would be the best gift you can give, the gift of Building Memories.

I’ll sign off here…  but leave you with these images….

Traveling with the whole family!! Highlights of Multi-generational Travel.

Multi-generational vacations bring the entire family together, to enjoy exciting adventures and make memories that last a lifetime. 36% of vacation bookings are now multi-generational. The Baby Boomer Generation worked hard, invested well and enjoys their retirement. However, 54% of grandparents say they wish they had more time to spend with their grandchildren. And now, they have found the way.

What to expect with Multi-generational Travel?
Reminisce about the past, through the eyes of the grandparents. Grandparents will rediscover their youth, through the eyes of the children, and for the parents, you will enjoy both immensely. It is ‘Family Bonding’ at its best.

At Visit Mickey Vacations, we have definitely seen an increase in multi-generational travel in the past few years. It’s actually my favorite kind of travel. My mother has been on eight of our family trips. There is no greater joy for me than to watch my mom’s face, while she is watching my children experience something new and wonderful.

As you can tell by my Agency name, most of my business is centered in Disney; but here’s what you may not know… Disney is so much more than Mickey Mouse and Theme Parks. After Mickey Mouse, most associate Disney with Service and Quality. They have built themselves into the Leaders of the Travel Industry. Disney offers many of the top destinations for Multi-generational travel, without setting foot in a Theme Park.
What are the best trips, for everyone’s need?
A destination that can fit everyone’s pace. Nobody wants to feel left behind or the one holding everyone else back. Babies and Grandparents may want a slower pace and teens cannot wait to rush forward. So, what are the best options?

Cruise – Disney Cruise Line has earned the Best Family Cruise Award for 7 years. Why? Because they offer everything you need, for all ages.
