John's Travel Update January 21, 2022

Winter has really locked in for us in the Chicago area and I'm DREAMING of some warm destinations! Until then: here's the latest fun travel updates!

Toy Story Land Updates at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

"Jessie's Trading Post" was the first of the two announcements - and details are a bit vague. It appears to be a new gift shop - and that may sound a bit boring but for the kids who love "Toy Story" - it will be a welcome addition since most merchandise is sold on kiosks that aren't always open. This will be a cute shop!

The second "announcement" (which was previously announced) is a bit more exciting is the rollout of "Roundup Rodeo BBQ" in 2022! This restaurant is sorely needed in Disney's Hollywood Studios. It will be a table-service restaurant and although it appeared it would initially be a character meal (where you'd meet Woody, Jessie, Buzz) - the latest announcement doesn't mention that. So it will be a "wait and see" - but the themeing looks right "in line" with Toy Story Land!

Lunar New Year Celebration Is Back At Disney California Adventure Park!

Celebrate The Year of the Tiger during the Lunar New Year celebration at Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort!

This limited-time event – which runs now through Feb. 13, 2022 – is a joyous tribute to Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean cultures with a touch of Disney magic, featuring Asian-inspired food and drinks, vibrant décor, keepsake merchandise and exciting entertainment!

Big Savings At Atlantis Bahamas

Surrounded by the bluest ocean and miles of white-sandy beaches, the renowned Atlantis Paradise Island sits just offshore from the island of New Providence in The Bahamas. For a limited-time, save up to 30% off accommodations through February 28, 2023 but must be booked by January 24 (that's Monday!). Nassau is a quick flight from the United States and the water is amazing!

One More "Beachy" Update!

I get plenty of requests from clients wanting a family-friendly vacation in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area.

I'm here to tell you that Club Med Yucatan is basically the most perfect family vacation.


First of all: it's just MINUTES from Cancun International Airport. Yet: you don't hear jets roaring over you (thanks to the direction of the runways).

Secondly: The kids clubs are TOP NOTCH.

  • Petit Club Med allows kids in as young as 2!

  • Mini Club Med is perfect for kids age 4 to 10

  • Kids 11 to 17 won't be left out either!

Third: Did I mention Trapeze school? Fitness school? Tennis school? Archery school?

Don't feel like school? No problem!

Finally: Lie on the beach with a frosty drink or indulge at the Club Med Spa by L’Occitane.

I can't possibly list ALL the amazing things to do. CLICK HERE for all the details PLUS how you can save up to 45%!

Sorry for all the "warm destination" posts! But it's currently 20 degrees and I am DREAMING of a warm break! Are you ready? CLICK HERE for a quote! Have a SAFE and WARM weekend!

- John
