Seems like more and more families are pre-planning every minute of their vacation time nowadays. I feel old in stating this but I can remember when people went on vacation to RELAX. Now we plan every minute of each day so that we can maximize our vacation. That is good for our agency as people seem to need a vacation to recover from their vacation they just completed.
We just met with our Disney Travel sales rep so he could give us some training on their "Disney Bands" or MyMagic+ program. In a nutshell, the bands are actual bracelets that you wear for your Disney World vacation and it serves as your airport transfers, room key, park ticket, dining plan, FastPass+ schedule, etc. Once you book your vacation with Palmer Vacations, we give you a step-by-step guide so you can register your vacation online, link your vacation confirmation number, customize your wristband colors and begin the process of selecting your dining reservations and FastPass+ ticket options.
You pre-plan your vacation so you can maximize your time at Disney World. A great piece of technology that allows you to make plans in advance. There is a ton to see and do at Disney World so this helps to get you to more things and experience more of the magic.
I guess the days are gone where you just showing up at the park, grabbing a map and scout out your day as you went. Once you get hungry, you find the closest restaurants and draw straws to see which one you eat at this time. Now it is all pre-planned and coded into a wristband that you scan at the park or restaurant. Guess cruise lines are becoming more leisurely and Mickey Mouse is becoming more scheduled. Who would have seen that coming a few years ago?
