Disney Does it Again! Innovation!

Disney’s Online Check-in is now available at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida!

Disney first launched their “My Disney Experience” App in 2013 which currently includes, Fastpass+, Magic Band 2 and Mobile Order services so it really should be no surprise as the vacation innovation continues at Disney.

Disney_Online Check in

Earlier this year, Disney unveiled a redesigned “My Disney Experience” App with new features that spoke to guests’ desires for an easier way to access all of their vacation plans.  Disney just announced another update to their APP which will bring one more cool and convenient feature to enhance the Disney World (Florida) vacation experience, Online Check-in!!

Disney shared additional information with their Travel Agent Professionals;

When your Clients stay at a Disney Resort hotel, they will be able to use Disney’s Online Check-In service on the My Disney Experience mobile app, expediting their arrival while providing additional convenience, flexibility and customization of their experience. The feature enables your Clients to start the check-in process up to 60 days before their arrival, bypassing the need to visit the front desk and giving them the opportunity to begin their vacation as soon as they set foot in Walt Disney World Resort. Guests complete their check-in by unlocking their room, when it is ready, using the MagicBands sent to them prior to their arrival.

With just a few taps of the screen, your Clients can make room requests, add credit card information and authorize charges, submit an estimated arrival time to help prompt room access, receive a notification when their room is ready and more. Please note that room requests are not guaranteed and Guests must provide consent to receive notifications.

The best part? Your Clients can begin the check-in process at any point up to 60 days prior to your arrival date – even minutes beforehand as they’re transported on Disney’s Magical Express to their resort hotel.

As always, world-class Guest service is part of the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and front desk and concierge cast members are available at all of our resort hotels to assist your Clients at their leisure for the duration of their stay.

To take advantage of the Online Check-In service and other features, be sure your Clients download the latest version of My Disney Experience, now available in the App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.

It’s Flashback Friday! I hope you will have family vacation memories to share too!

Happy Friday! One of my hopes to-do on this Friday is to continue encouraging parents to make sure that you plan to travel with your kids too if you can!  On this Flashback Friday I am remembering Florida family vacations.  Orlando has so much to offer a family to experience and enjoy together.  So much has changed and evolved there since my last visit so I know that I’ll need to get back to see all the new expansions soon.

It’s not too late to book your 2017 family getaway if you haven’t done so already! It’s also not too early to begin planning for your 2018 vacation either!

Disney World 1986; Orlando, Florida! Those little girls are 35 years old now!

I was a newbie Travel Agent back in 1986! This was my 2nd trip to Disney World when I took my oldest daughter and my niece to visit the Mickey Mouse neighborhood, 30 years ago!

Mini Mouse_Amber_Chanel 1987

My niece and oldest daughter (now 35 yrs old) met Minnie Mouse 30 years ago at Disney World Orlando!

Busch Gardens 1986

We traveled from Disney World in Orlando to visit Busch Gardens in Tampa on the same vacation in 1986.

 

Disney World 2005

2005, my 3rd trip to Disney World taking my two youngest kids who are now 18 and 20 years old.

My now 18 & 20yr olds at SeaWorld in 2005

We made sure to include a visit to SeaWorld on our family vacation in 2005.

 

We realize that many families can’t or are just not that interested in traveling out-of the country with their children.  TLC Travels’ Tours and Cruises is commited to including affordable domestic-travel vacation options for families to enjoy too.

Are you ready to take your Holiday Traditions to another level?

“You cannot keep doing the same thing, the same way, and keep expecting something different to happen.” Beth Moore –

Well, maybe you can. Depends on who you ask. Many are  quite content with doing the same thing, year after year so if that describes you then this post is not speaking to you. Alternately, if you are someone who is tired of this repetitive, egocentric consumerist mentality of being, somewhat due to past generations creating materialistic Holiday traditions, then please, by all means, understand that you do have other options.

beth-moore_expecting-something-different

Doing the same thing year after year? Expecting something different? Buying more stuff? Stop it! Consider GIVING the Gift of a #TRAVEL experience to yourself or a loved one! Invest in new experiences, make memories in new places, educate you and yours about other cultures. Volunteer on a Holiday trip! Make Travel Memories! Just make a decision to go somewhere to do something different! Your Travel options are endless! And remember, when you plan to Travel, work with #TravelAgent Professional that you can trust and rely on for support before, during and after your trip!!

The Secret to Happiness? Spend Money on Experiences, Not Things

Be honest with yourself, are those $500 jeans going to make you happy tomorrow? Next week? Now how about a $100 pair of jeans and a $100 massage every Friday for the next four weeks? Trying to look like a movie star or a fashion model is a pricy endeavor and in the end the only one who comes out ahead is your credit card company. Instead of spending your hard earned bread on clothes and jewelry to make yourself look better, spend that money on activities that will make you feel better.
