It started with a book. The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. Then TouringPlans.com came online in 2001 covering Walt Disney World and, later, Disneyland. Last year, TouringPlans launched Universal Orlando and Disney Cruise Line.
This year, we want to bring even more trip planning content to you. We are sending researchers out to Disney destinations over the globe, and we’ll need your help deciding the best content to cover. Over the next few months, we’ll be introducing our team, some of whom you already know from the blog, some who prefer to spend time behind the scenes. They will tell you about where we’re sending them, a little bit about their travel parties, and ask what you want to know about planning your own trips there. Nearly everyone (sorry, Morgan!) is going somewhere he or she has never been before. We’ve got whole families, couples, and friends traveling together.
You can even share the experience with us. We’ll be hosting meets everywhere we’re visiting on October 12 and would love to see you. Can’t make it to Tokyo or Paris? Follow us on Twitter (@TouringPlans #Everywhere) that day for photos and videos from your old and new favorite Disney parks, resorts, and ships.
So what are we covering?
United States – Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Disney’s Hilton Head Resort, and Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa; with new hotels, restaurants, and money-saving tips whether you drive or fly.
Asia – Tokyo Disneyland Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort; including how to navigate everything from buying park tickets to the trains to the parks.
Europe – Disneyland Resort Paris; including the DLRP travel packages, hotel reviews, and how to get the best airfare to France.
Disney Cruise Line – all four Disney Cruise Line ships, Magic (7-night Southern Caribbean from San Juan), Wonder (6-night Western Caribbean from Miami), Dream (4-night Bahamas from Port Canaveral), and Fantasy (7-night Western Caribbean with Falmouth, Jamaica, from Port Canaveral); with new Port Adventures and kids’ activities coverage.
As always, our trips are booked with our own money at rates available to the general public.
Stayed tuned to find out who got Hong Kong and who got South Carolina! (Actually, I got Hilton Head, and I’m pretty happy about it.)
