Is the Disney VIP Classics Tour Worth It?

Around the same time that I fell in love with the idea of taking the girls to Disney World this summer, I also learned about a relatively new VIP tour option in the Magic Kingdom that sounded perfect for our trip goals, stamina, and timeframe.

Just about a year ago we got wind of the changes coming to the Citi Prestige credit card for new and eventually existing cardholders.

Most of the major hotel programs have a Best Rate Offer Guarantee of some sort that essentially exists to encourage you to book directly with the hotel itself instead of booking via a third-party site like Expedia, Priceline, etc. These programs all have a claims process in the event you do indeed find a cheaper publicly available rate for the exact same room type on your travel dates.

Really Good European Flight Sale Today!

I think it is fair to say that some have become desensitized a bit to European airfare sales in the $400 – $500 per round trip range, but you really shouldn’t be. At least, I shouldn’t be. Being able to fly from somewhere like Houston to Scotland on a full service airline for around $500 per round trip is pretty outstanding, especially if you have a wide range of dates to pick from. Along those lines, right now you can book…

The Five Best Activities at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

When we decided to splurge this summer and stay at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort we did it with the full intention of not just using the room as a place to lay our heads at night. Instead, the resort itself was to play an important role in our Disney vacation.

Historic Hotel del Coronado Now Bookable with Hilton Honors Points

There are some iconic hotels around the world that historically haven’t really needed affiliation with a major loyalty program in order to attract enough attention, but now that the major hotel loyalty programs have been creating ‘speciality’ portfolios, we have seen an increase in these iconic and previously pretty independent properties linking up with the major hotel points programs. Of course, this is great news for folks like you and me! One of these iconic hotels that most travelers could…
