Where has the month gone? I can't believe it's already May! Let's get started!
Mickey's "Not-So-Scary Halloween Party" Slated To Return Fall 2022
BIG NEWS out of the Walt Disney World Resort: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is returning this Fall (well, late summer!).
A victim of COVID-19, this fan-favorite after-hours special ticketed event disappeared for two LONG years - and last year was replaced with a very different "Boo Bash" that didn't go over well. Luckily, the classic Halloween-themed party that everyone loves will return in its original format later this summer through October.
Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2023 Itineraries
If I can give ONE piece of advice when it comes to Disney Cruise Line sailings: PLAN AHEAD.
Prices are nearly ALWAYS the lowest when Disney Cruise Line opens up the booking window - and I have no doubt that Summer 2023 will be no different. The ONLY time that you MIGHT see a discount is during "shoulder" seasons (hurricane) and when school is in session. So if you're willing to yank your kids out of school - GREAT! You MIGHT see a discount on a "guaranteed" cabin type (you will never be able to select a cabin ahead of time)! Otherwise: PLAN AHEAD! Ready to learn more? Click Below!
Celebrity Cruise Sale Continues
Right now the BEST "deals" come in the form of cruises. I know, I know: there's a stigma out there that cruising is dangerous due to COVID.
However, did you know that cruises are tested 21x more frequently than guests on land-vacations? And that the percentage of positive cases is far lower than here at home. So why not take advantage of some of these amazing sailings?
There's no better time to plan the vacation you've been missing. You'll step aboard with your better half, your friends, or your whole family and reconnect, reunite, and rejoice with 25% off* cruise fares for all guests. Celebrity Cruises will also help everyone get there with 25% off airfare* from 20 major gateways across the country or $100 savings* per person on flights from all other gateways when you book your clients' air travel using "Flights by Celebrity". Of course, certain restrictions apply - and it's subject to change and based on availability.
I've personally sailed on Celebrity several times and it's one of my top three cruise lines! Always amazing service and fantastic food (and I'm married to a "foodie"!). Contact me today for more information!
Turks & Caicos Eases COVID Restrictions Starting May 1, 2022
The Turks & Caicos Islands has announced that effective on May 1, vaccinated travelers are no longer required to provide a negative COVID-19 test, proof of travel insurance or admittance through the TCI Assured portal to gain entry. Proof of vaccination for travelers over 18 years is still required and will be shown at airport checkpoints. Mask mandates for indoors and enclosed spaces will also be lifted.
This dissolution of TCI Assured and the ease of entry requirements represents a significant milestone for the Turks & Caicos Islands’ safety protocols and ongoing vaccine campaign, with more than 80 percent of the adult population currently vaccinated, making Turks & Caicos one of the most inoculated countries in the world.
