John's Travel Update August 19, 2022

I don't know about you: my kids are back at school! It's a bittersweet time since we won't be traveling as much - but it's time to learn! Speaking of education: here are some fun updates!

This Is Your Sign To Take A Cruise!

Virgin Voyages has announced an amazing new offer for November 2022 sailings. On top of already incredibly low prices - they're tossing on an additional $300 "Bar Tab" bonus!

Virgin Voyages is a FANTASTIC Adults-Only cruise with amazing restaurants (seriously!), fitness for days (all classes are FREE), pool with DJ and even a casino.

The Club at Bimini is a stop on the Caribbean sailings - and this club is like no other!

Each balcony has a hammock! So relaxing!

So how much is this amazing cruise? NOT MUCH AT ALL! I priced out a sailing at the beginning of November for a "Sea Terrace" (that's the fancy word for balcony) and it's coming in around $1,200 TOTAL for the cabin! Plus the additional $300 "Bar Tab" you can use on beverages throughout the ship and at Bimini.

Virgin Voyages sails out of Miami - which has PLENTY of flight options (Ft. Lauderdale is just down the road!). Did I mention it's adults-only? I love my kids! But I also love some NON-kid time! You deserve an amazing vacation! CLICK HERE to get started!

Enchanting Extras Make A Return To EPCOT!

Three very popular "Enchanting Extras" at EPCOT are poised to return on October 2 just in time to celebrate EPCOT's 40th Anniversary! These experiences offer an exciting look at the magic of possibilities and allow you to explore EPCOT by land and by sea!

If you've ever gone to "The Land" pavilion to hop on "Soarin' Around The World" - you've probably also jumped a ride on "Living With The Land" which takes you on a boat ride around greenhouses while you learn about our precious environment.

"Behind the Seeds" is a one-hour walking tour that gives you an up-close and personal view of amazing plants, insects and fish throughout four state-of-the-art greenhouses.

You can take in the sights and smells of unusual crops from around the world as you explore the future of agriculture. A knowledgeable guide will help you discover some of the latest plant-growing techniques in use at The Land, including hydroponics, and provide ideas you can try at home in your own garden!

Explore The Living Seas!

The Seas with Nemo & Friends is home to more than 2,000 sea creatures representing over 90 aquatic species including sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, eagle rays and sharks.

With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest, you can dive right into this 5.7-million-gallon saltwater environment and immerse yourself into the sea life surrounding the coral reef. This experience offers SCUBA-certified guests guaranteed calm seas, unlimited visibility, no current and incredible marine life.

If you aren’t SCUBA-certified or prefer to stay on your “sea legs,” don’t worry; there is a tour for you, too! With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth, you can meet the bottlenose dolphins at The Seas to learn about their complex undersea behavior and talk with the experts who work with them every day.

All of these will be available to book starting August 22, 2022 - and they are VERY popular! Ready to plan your Walt Disney World adventure? CLICK HERE!

Reopening News!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is reopening August 25 at Magic Kingdom Park and Disneyland Park, and reservations for both are now available!

Cast members – known as Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices – will transform guests ages 3 to 12 into some of their favorite Disney characters with hairstyling, makeup, costumes and accessories. In addition, the reopening ushers in even more options to choose from — including a new hair accessory especially designed for textured hair and new costumes featuring some of Disney’s newest heroes and heroines coming later this year.

Located in the heart of Magic Kingdom and Disneyland park, the reopening of these two iconic locations will join the slate of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutiques aboard Disney Cruise Line, including the newest addition at sea on the Disney Wish.

That's it for this week! Drop me a line at and I'm ready to get started!
