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 1987

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.

Be sure to follow-us on Facebook for family vacation offers, especially from Disney Parks, Universal Resorts, and SeaWorld in Orlando, Fl.

The savvy travelers had their Travel Agent on Speed Dial! – Brawl breaks out after flight canceled.

Wondering how many of those stranded passengers at the airport had a trusted travel planner #TravelAgent on their ICE contacts list to call for HELP during this melee!!!

Times like this is why you work with a Travel Professional when you #Plan2Travel !! We are available for our clients before, DURING and after their trip!

Screams and commotion took over Fort Lauderdale’s airport Monday as travelers clashed with Spirit Airlines employees and police.

Many think that it’s so easy to just book yourself online so why work with a Travel Agent? Well, crap happens, even when we travel. Establishing a working relationship with a travel agent professional is what smart and savvy travelers do. Your travel professional will not only help you plan and book your trip, he/she knows your itinerary and is just a telephone call away, if/when something like this or worse happens.

Use a Travel Agent when you plan to travel. I’m sure there were many in that crowd who didn’t know the first thing to do or who to call when all hell broke loose.  Don’t let that be you.
