Are You Ready for the Genie?
Last week, Disney announced new details surrounding the previously announced Disney Genie app and the newly announced Disney Genie+ service! The announcement was a little bit confusing, however, I have spent the past few days going over the details and training with Disney so I can be as prepared as possible to assist with your upcoming vacations. We do not yet have ALL of the details, but I wanted to share everything that we know thus far with you.
I know you probably have lots of questions, and I may not have the answers yet. However, if you send them along, I will do my best to address them once we get more information from Disney. If you know that you want to purchase Genie+ access for ALL days of your vacation, please let me know so that I can provide you with additional information once we have it sometime in the near future.
Remember, your Road To Relaxation Travel Professional is the best genie to help you have an amazing vacation!

Travel planning has always been something I loved to do. I found that researching a trip and learning everything I possibly could about a destination was something that gave me immense satisfaction. However, I knew that not everyone enjoyed this aspect of traveling as much as I do.
In January 2016, I joined Road to Relaxation Travel. My goal: to make my client’s vacations as stress free as possible. I know that my clients don’t necessarily get to travel as much as they’d like to - and I want them to have the best possible experience they can.
Shopping at Disney
Shopping at Walt Disney World can be a great past time for retreating from the crowds, cooling off between rides, or just picking out a great souvenir to bring home.
It's entirely possible to spend a lot of time wandering from shop to shop as there are so many in each park. Disney Springs alone could take an entire afternoon exploring. Here are a few spots I checked out on my last trip that had some great merchandise worth exploring.
If you've never checked out The Marketplace Co-Op, you must stop in on your next visit to Disney Springs! This is a huge retail emporium featuring a variety of brands and special events featuring art, apparel, home decor and so much more.
The Disney Cruise Line Pop-Up Shop had a great selection of merchandise like this cute purse, lots of clothing and even luggage for your next cruise! The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane has beautiful dresses like this one seen on display. Also check out Disney Tails where you might even find some matching apparel for you and your pup!
Browsing around the Co op is a great way to pass the time before your dinner reservation in Disney Springs.
Another area I love to shop in is Hollywood Studios. This is where you can find all the greatest Star Wars gear.
The unique items like the pilot helmets make for a great holiday gift for your favorite Star Wars fan. There were also fun items like this adorable "The Child" mug and entire Star Wars outfits perfect for exploring Galaxy's Edge.
There are so many great shopping spots all around DisneyWorld. What is your favorite item that you brought home from Disney? Do you have a favorite shopping spot?

I love helping people find the perfect destination for their vacation and sharing all of my favorite tips and tricks with them.
Growing up, my family made it a priority to take a trip each year to somewhere we had never been. It wasn’t always to a far away, exotic location. Sometimes it was just a new place to check out in our own state. This is what fostered my love for travel and helping people find new places to enjoy.
