As the craziest school year we've ever had is winding down, we are turning our focus to summer vacations. And if there has ever been a year that you deserve a "celebration vacation", this is THE year! Whether you're celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, or just the ability to finally travel again, we have some great ideas for you and your family!
First up? Walt Disney World, and some of the best water parks, pools, and splash-filled attractions around! From Splash Mountain to Kali River Rapids, the theme parks offer some fun ways to cool off throughout the day.
Add a day at Blizzard Beach, one of Disney's water parks, and you'll have a day of frosty fun on your hands. Or take a day off from the parks, and enjoy your resort pool - we know some of the best ones on property!
If you're looking for some other ways to fill your days, Epcot offers festivals throughout the year, so your summer vacation could include the Flower & Garden festival, which runs through July 5. Or if you're more of a Food & Wine fan, you can get your fill starting July 15.
And if you're looking for an inexpensive activity, don't forget about Walt Disney World's two mini golf courses, both on property - ask us how to make sure a game is included in your vacation package!
Another great destination for your summer vacation is Universal Orlando Resort. With some of the best roller coasters around, including the Velocicoaster opening this summer, the thrill-seekers in your family will love these parks!
Looking to add some relaxation to your vacation? How about a private cabana at Universal's Volcano Bay water park. Make waves, or catch some rays, just don't miss out on spending a day at this South Seas oasis.
And if the thrills and spills aren't your thing, you can jump into the pages of your favorite book in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You won't want to miss a refreshing pint of butter beer. Or a scoop of butter beer ice cream. Or a frozen butter beer... you get the point.
If you are truly looking to relax, and be the "Yes Mom" this summer (you know, the mom who gets to say YES to everything?!) then a Beaches vacation is perfect for you!
Beaches resorts in Jamaica and Turks & Caicos offer an all-inclusive vacation for your family. From soft-serve ice cream machines in the kids clubs, to all water sports included, you won't have to lift a finger because Beaches provides it all.
You can relax on the beach, by one of their many pools, or spend family time on a catamaran or at the water park.
There are plenty of different dining options available as well, so even the pickiest eater won't be a concern.
And if you really want to celebrate, we can help you plan a romantic dinner for two, a couples visit to the spa, or we can even set you up with your very own butler for the week. Sky's the limit with a Beaches vacation!
And if a tropical vacation sounds perfect, but you haven't had a chance to get your passports, Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii might be the perfect destination for you!
Set on the gorgeous Hawaiian island of O'ahu, Aulani offers so many advantages, including Disney Character experiences, 6 pool areas plus a private beach, and a kids club with included activities.
Storytelling is at its finest at Aulani, as legends of the islands come to life at through Hawaiian music, hula dance, and fireside tales.
With different size rooms and villas available, Aulani is the perfect choice for your extended family vacation, and we can help your family discover moments of adventure and relaxation, all surrounded by the magic of Disney.
