I created this podcast for those who lead a travel-centered lifestyle.

Get the latest COVID travel information and find out where you can safely travel to each week by tuning into the COVID travel update podcast!   In this episode, I’m giving you the 411 on how to travel to Disney during COVID. The rules have changed, and Disney is only allowing a certain allotment of people in to the parks. Learn what you have to do when buying tickets and making reservations for parks, restaurants and hotels. Find out how you can enjoy DisneyWorld and accommodations Disney has available if you're traveling with a disability.   Creating a Disney Account Online   If you're planning on going to Disney, you'll first want to open a Disney account for yourself online https://disneyworld.disney.go.com Next, create an account for each person in your party, then link people who are traveling with you. If someone in your travel group already has an account, do not create another account for them. Simply email them an invitation to join your group!    Create all your plans on your Disney account and make plans for the people in your party! Reserve Fastpass up to 30 days ahead of time. Now, you can create dinner reservations, reserve FastPasses, buy merchandise, and book your Disney stay all from one place! Get FastPasses for your entire group, or make dinner reservations for each individual person. If you want to divide your group into two - no problem! You can put only individuals that want to go on a ride or to a restaurant on that reservation. Additionally, you can change your reservation online 24 hours ahead of time on the app or on your desktop. Of course, Disney makes it super easy to separate you from your money, it's what they are good at.    Disney COVID Vacation Specials   Right now, because of COVID, Disney is offering great deals on their hotel rooms. You can find rooms for under $150 a night at DisneyWorld. There are several advantages to booking and staying at a Disney hotel. From the free shuttles to Disney restaurants where you can get safe food if you are gluten-free and consistently excellent quality of service and rooms, Disney is tough to beat when you are looking for a stress-free place to stay and have fun, especially if you have a disability.   Disney Know Before You Go COVID Travel Update   First, you must reserve your time at any one of the four Disney theme parks that are currently open through the Disney Park Pass Reservation System. “To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for each person in your party ages three and up (limit one park per day Disney is controlling the number of people in the park to maintain social distancing).”   FastPass+ service is suspended as they are using additional queue space to control capacity and maintain physical distancing. We will automatically cancel existing FastPass+ selections and share any future updates on the service at a later date.   There are selected resorts Disney has opened to guests. Disney Springs shopping opened in June. Remember that COVID is changing Disney’s offerings, so make sure to check their website for more information.   Make sure to view Disney’s new COVID precautions page before you make reservations to the park. Here is a summary of precautions Disney is taking to keep everyone safe:   Mandatory use of face masks Sanitizing rides Seating guests six feet apart Hand washing stations located throughout the park Physical and social distancing Modified experiences Temperature screenings are mandated at areas throughout the park   Disney’s disclaimer: “An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.” The Guide to Traveling Gluten Free Are you anxious about traveling with Celiacs Disease?
