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.
I can only imagine how someone who doesn't have a Travel Agent to help with the planning feels at eight weeks out from a trip!
Especially if they have kids with special needs. Do they know about the AAP? Do they know when it is best to use it as opposed to the Express Pass? Do they even know the best way to get one? Where to go? Who to call? Do they know about the new quiet room?
What about if they have older family members who need an ECV. DO they know that not all vendors are created equal? Do they know that some are such stand outs in the customer service department that I use no one but them? Same for strollers? Just because Johnny doesn't need one at home, doesn't mean he won't need one in the parks!
Do they know that during the summer, it can save you money by staying in a preferred room? (not to mention headaches)
If you don't know the answers to all these questions and you are traveling to Universal with a Special Needs Family Member you need to contact me and let's chat! I'm not going to lie and say my service is free, because my years of training, expertise and customer service is what keeps my clients coming back to me.
