Simply got tired of not being able to find the answers to help my special needs son have fun at Theme parks!
The more I researched, the more I realized there was a need for someone to help people like me wade through the rules and regulations as well as tips and tricks to help our kids have fun at the parks. That was 15 plus long years ago. A lot has changed since then. In fact, my special needs child is no longer a child and will be graduating high school in less than 20 days! ( a feat the doctors said would never happen!)
My ultimate goal is for every special needs child or adult to be able to travel to any theme park and have as much fun as any other child. So, click on the button below to get a free copy of a few of my tips and tricks for Universal with Special Needs.
I just realized that in eight short weeks we will be in Universal! I have not started packing, barely started planning, and am so busy I don't have time to worry about it!
While it is great to be having enough business that I can say that (after the past two years the travel industry as had!) I feel bad!
I'm not completely unprepared, I mean my Universal box and luggage is where I can get it. The lanyards with our annual passes are where they are supposed to be (although until they are marked off my list I will still panic about it!) All our dining reservations are made, and a semi touring plan has been made. I've checked the hours for the week we will be there and the whole week has early hours for both parks.
And I am sending myself the complete set of emails for both first timers and old timers to Universal, so my travel agent (ahem ... me!) is keeping me on top of changes that are rapidly happening in Universal, but I just feel like I should be doing more.
Before we get started, we’ll have a complimentary consultation call so I can hear all about the family vacation you are dreaming of. We’ll chat about your travel style, budget, destinations, and more so I can design a totally unique itinerary for YOUR family.
After you take care of the planning fee, I’ll begin researching tailored options for your family trip, relying on my network of contacts to design something truly special. You’ll receive 3 preliminary quotes to review, and then we will work together to refine one of them until you just can’t wait to embark on your vacation.
Now, the easy part! You get to relax - while I take care of all the travel bookings for you. You’ll receive all your bookings and itinerary info via an emailed pdf form that can be constantly updated with any changes needed.
All aboard for the family adventure of a lifetime! You and your family will depart for your journey, and rest easy knowing you have a travel pro on the ground for support. If any issues arise while you’re traveling, you can easily reach out by phone or text and I’ll take care of it for you!
Prior to the Nasty C word, travel was easier. Most things stayed consistent, you knew where you wanted to go and when you wanted to go; you had a budget and you had friends who’d been there before , or you could look it up on the internet and read the reviews, right?
And, about half the time you’d ]get the vacation you wanted. Or- you could go to a Travel Professional and REALLY get the trip you wanted.
From all of us at JMorris Travel to all of our Wonderful Clients and Friends we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very Prosperous New Year!
And if you are trying to out do that brother in law this year, give a gift of a cruise to your parents! The memories will last a lifetime!
JMorris Travel is ready to expand!
I know these past few months have been hard on the travel industry, many agencies folded, many agents called it quits. And I admit, for a time, I considered making a new career choice!
But, even during those hard times, one thing remained constant. My love for travel and faith in the industry. I knew it would eventually come back! The only question was when?
Looking at how hard it is to get a room at the theme parks now show me it is back! When you see how many people are traveling you can see the eagerness to get out there, anywhere, just travel!
Yes, it's not always smart to just run off and go without research and plans. And while most overseas places are perfectly safe, the requirements for travel changes almost daily; making it someplace that I don't at present feel comfortable sending my clients, but it is coming soon!
We already are seeing more and more amusement parks reaching capacity and cruises are finally getting back to business. It is only a matter of time before the rest of travel resumes. Now with the ease of getting a vaccination travel is closer than ever.
Here at JMorris Travel we are trying to be proactive. We want to be there ready to show you the way, ready to help you navigate the ever changing requirements to get back to what we all love - TRAVEL!
To do that we need to add to our "family" of Travel Advisors. Our clients know the high attention to detail that we demand in our Advisors. You already know we only want people who love to travel and help people.
And while we strive to make it look easy, it is a hard job staying on top of the constant changes, taking the supplier specific training to refresh our knowledge of specific destinations, while both being part of a team and self motivated. So, if you , or someone you know, loves to travel, loves to be part of a proven team, has a genuine desire to help people, send them our way!
We are looking for full time advisors who have been to either Disney or Universal at least three times in the last five years with some sales experience.
We are looking to start our next training class after the first of the year.
So contact me at Jeanne@JMorrisTravel.com and lets set up a time for a chat!
Today’s blog is a bit different. It's not about a destination, or a specific trip. It's not even about a travel tip. It’s about a mode of travel that almost everyone uses. Driving.
As so many people are starting to venture out from home after the past year, they are choosing short close to home trips. More and more are choosing to drive.
Living in the metro Atlanta area I have the privilege of seeing some of the worst drivers on the planet earth! I believe the only ones that came close were the drivers in Washington DC, but that was 30+ years ago so they may have the title now!
Most of the content is written by people at JMorris Travel. Every once in a while we will have a guest blogger, usually it is part of our 'family'.Always with a nod to Family Travel!
