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.
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!
If you haven’t visited Disney in a while, you might question the need for all the planning. I know on our first several trips to Disney, there really was no need for much planning. We picked a resort, made a dining reservation, and winged the rest!
Now, the parks have grown so much, and are so much more crowded, that planning is the only way to be able to do anything. I’m not saying you have to plan out minute by minute (while some do just that). I’m saying the days of deciding on Monday that you want to do Disney next week are all but gone.
The first decision is when you want to visit. This used to be simple, but now, not so much. There really are no more uncrowded times to visit. When Disney sees the rooms aren’t filling as fast as they want, they might throw a limited promotion out to get more people in.
And, as much as I love Disney, I have to agree it is getting harder and harder to do Disney inexpensively. The days of Disney being a cheap vacation are long over! Those promotions? They are always very limited. The number of rooms available for that promotion on that date in the room category of the resort you want, were probably grabbed as soon as the promotion was released.
With all the crazy 'stuff' happening in the world today, I thought we should revisit this topic!
Do I recommend Travel Insurance?
Another year has come and gone. Every year people make tons of resolutions.
Exercise more. Eat better. Be a better (fill in the blank). Spend more time with my family. And on and on.
Everyone gets busy and things you meant to do get lost in the endless ‘work’, and suddenly you forget that trip you had meant to plan with your family until it was too late to get what you really wanted or you end up spending way more money than your budget liked. I can relate!
This year, how about you make some resolutions that are more fun. Ones that you can easily keep for a longer period of time. And, maybe include some of those other resolutions that often get pushed to the background.
That’s right. It is as simple as TRAVEL. Want to spend more time with your family? Travel with them. Want to Exercise more? Travel to a beautiful location that will scream “get out and enjoy!” Want to save money? Book your travel EARLY! Want to be pampered? Cruise! Want to catch up on some reading? Travel to a nice beach resort.
Yes, it really IS that easy, and I’m here to help. I plan amazingly stress free family vacations for busy families who want a magical getaway before the kids are too old to enjoy it!
Yes, I do Disney and Universal, but I do so much more! Are you looking to cruise? How about a Caribbean All Inclusive? Yes, I can do that and so much more!
