Christmas at Disney Springs!  Christmas is one of our most favorite times of year at Walt Disney World - you can just feel the Holiday magic in the air! A lot of people first think of Cinderella Castle all decked-out in snowy lights and while it truly is a spectacular sight there are lots of other equally amazing Holiday offerings on property. Today we will touch briefly on what you can find at Disney Springs during the Holiday Season!  The Marketplace is where you will find the Christmas Tree Trail. If you have not experienced this new display you are missing out! Before you begin the trail be sure to grab a Holiday treat to enjoy while you stroll - you can find draft beers, holiday-themed cocktails, Christmas cookies and popcorn, just to name a few!  You will also find a meet-and-greet with Santa at the Marketplace (across from Once Upon a Toy)! Be sure to check-in before you head off to the Christmas Tree Trail, Santa has a virtual queue which means you can enjoy othe

How to Choose the Perfect All-Inclusive Resort Here at Zip Travel we love an All-inclusive vacation. However, many clients are overwhelmed with the idea and not sure how to decide if an All-Inclusive resort is right for them. Here are a few things we ask our clients to help narrow down the decision-making process. 1. Which Island Do You Want to Visit? While a handful of all-inclusive resorts sit outside of the Caribbean, most of properties can be found in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Barbados, St. Maarten and other tropical islands. While many of these islands offer similar scenery and amenities, the culture, language and ambiance of each can be drastically different. Which one should you choose? The answer depends on a variety of variables, including your budget, travel goals, companions and personal preferences.  2. Set your Budget. Usually, the best values can be found in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. However, if it's cul
Magical Extras!  One of our favorite things about a Disney vacation is the fact that you never know when you might be surprised with a little extra magic! On a recent trip to Walt Disney World we were greeted with a letter welcoming us back to one of our favorite Resorts - Port Orleans French Quarter - and with that letter was a cute puzzle themed around the Resort. It was a hit with the kids, they loved the idea of arriving at home and putting together a puzzle that would remind them specifically of this particular Disney vacation! We even had the thought that it would be really neat to have a collection of these puzzles from different Resorts framed and hanging in a playroom or common area. As you walk by the framed puzzle pictures you would be reminded of when you acquired each puzzle and the happy memories from each trip! After all, that's what going to Disney World is all about - magical memories with the people you love! Have you ever experienced any magical Disn
TRON Lightcycle Power Run Construction Begins                   While the attraction was confirmed at the D23 Expo back in July 2017, little has been done in the way of preparations for the TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction. That has recently changed as construction wall have gone up near the exit to Space Mountain just underneath the Tomorrowland People Mover. No exact opening date for the attraction has been announced, but it is expected to open before the 50 th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom in 2021. The eye-catching   Tron   attraction already exists at Shanghai Disneyland. It’s a neon-lit ride that goes indoors and outdoors, taking riders on seats that imitate the lightcycles seen   Tron   and   Tron: Legacy . The ride makes use of extensive visual effects, sudden speed boosts, and immersive lighting to create an experience that is unlike any other roller coaster on the planet.

I enjoy cruising. The cruising industry continues to step up their game for various interests. Whether you’re a foodie, love to shop or are a history buff, there are so many choices.   Most people think about cruising to the Bahamas. Some may think of Alaska. There is more than this. Cruising around the world is an option. Cruising the Mediterranean or around South America. There are cruises for Asia and Australia. One of the current top picks is the River Cruises. Did you know your Memory Maker can help find that perfect cruise for you? No matter your interests, there is a cruise for you. Where would you like to cruise next?

A question we get asked all the time is....Should I take travel insurance?  Here is a short informative video about the many reasons having travel insurance is a great idea! Taking insurance is one of the best ways that you can make your vacation stress free. Of course no one plans to cancel their vacation, but when you have an emergency and have to, wouldn't you rather have that piece of mind that you are covered?
