Our vacation plans had been postponed and rearranged at least three times so it was a minor miracle that my husband finally got the all clear to take a week off from work and we found Get Away Today vacations. By this time though we felt that we didn’t have the time to make plans so we were pretty much up a creek. Since it was a last minute thing, we hadn’t planned or booked anything so we were left trying to decide where to go and what to do that wouldn’t break the bank.
This was when the online travel agent came to our rescue. It came into being 20 years ago, and was the brainchild of Chuck and Julie Smith, a couple just back from Disneyland, who wanted to give others the opportunity to experience the same. The obstacle however being that for families, especially those on a tight budget, such theme parks could prove to be very expensive.
Hotels have many hotels which go unoccupied, a fact known by the Smiths. So at first they contacted the hotels around theme parks asking for the available discounts and facilities, thus giving birth to the agency. And today, they have expanded to vast territories which include cruises, resorts, adventure excavations in addition to Disney vacations, and have had over 2 million satisfied customers.
We took a two-hour drive to Anaheim, CA to reach Disneyland. We chose the best of the bargain deals out of the lot foe Disneyland vacations that assured of a stay at an incredibly low price. The package we bought was three-night package in Disneyland with an incredible offer attached to it of free two nights stay in Disneyland.
For a family tour we picked up the Disneyland Resort vacation package that included the cost of stay for kids too (which was excluded from the aforementioned package meant for couples). We took kids to a dinner in Goofy’s Kitchen where the entire family ate heartily as Goofy and his gang entertained us.
The Disneyland package meant for the entire family was included the tickets to Disney’s California Adventure Park, A Bug’s Land, The Golden State, Hollywood Pictures Backlot, and Paradise Pier. We had a good time at the Backlot where we attended a Broadway type musical of “Aladdin”.
We decided to spend a day at the Knott’s Berry Farm too, thanks to our online travel agent package. What we loved the most was that we were able to book the vacation within minutes, and get a classic discount as a bonus.
There were a couple of other cheaper deals too but we opted for the bargain deals that were standard, which means that, they were neither too pricey nor too cheap. In the very near future, we are planning to for the Disney cruises to the Caribbean.
