9 Mistakes to Avoid on Your Next Disney Vacation, According to a Theme Park Expert. – We’re planning to visit Disney World next year, so I’m stocking up on tips to save money, time, and frustration for our trip. Of this list, my biggest issue is forgetting to make reservations ahead of time. You must make reservations ahead of time for certain rides and restaurants if you want to be able to enjoy them during your visit.
3 things to do if your flight is delayed. – Time is of the essence when there is a flight delay. With most flights operating at or near capacity, there are only a few open seats remaining on alternative flights. If you act quickly, you might be able to grab one of those coveted spots. And, as always, book your flight using a credit card that offers trip delay or flight cancellation/delay coverage. This will ensure that reasonable expenses are covered and might get you to your destination quicker.
Royal Caribbean announces ‘world cruise of world cruises’ scheduled to visit 150 destinations. – While this cruise is some serious money, it is approximately 9 months long and visits 150 different destinations.

Deals like this continue to close the gap between it and competing hotel brands, but it still has a long way to go before some travelers are willing to switch their loyalty.
News Flash, Loyalty Programs Don’t Care About You Or Your Loyalty. – They really don’t. Every program is solely designed to increase your spending with the brand and to choose them over another airline or hotel when booking your trip. They want to offer the least value of perks & benefits possible to get you to book with them. And, sometimes, they are willing to lose customers if it is a net financial gain for the company.
