Theme Park Transfers - Best Gold Coast Holiday Travel

A fun-filled family trip will definitely consist of visits to famous theme parks. These transfers are similar to airport transfers.
Theme park transfers are to be made for specific tour time schedules. Passengers are to book with a minimal 24 hours period prior to attraction transfer services. In addition, passengers are required to be present at the designated pick-up point ten minutes before the scheduled time.

Due to the precise nature of scheduling, it is not possible to wait for passengers who are not ready at the designated pick-up time as it is unfair to other passengers who are punctual and risk passengers arriving at the theme parks at a later time than expected. The bus driver will hand each passenger a return ticket when on the transfer with various time available for return transfer.

Again, passengers are required to wait at the designated waiting point ten minutes prior to these pick up times. Furthermore, due to government regulations, consumption of alcohols or smoking is illegal on coaches.

In addition, there is the ROO pass, which includes attraction transfers to many destinations. It is basically a cost-effective and convenient way of visiting many theme parks during your visit.

Moreover, it is crucial to book your airport transfers at the time of ROO pass booking, but it is not required to book all attraction transfers at the time of booking the ROO pass. Attraction bookings are flexible and can be done the day before traveling.

However, take note that the ROO pass must be used within 30 days and any unused components are non-refundable. The ROO pass is not transferable, but transfers are fully flexible and non consecutive with the convenient option to re-book transfer to another day in the event if it is necessary.

Another important point is that the ROO pass price listed is only for coach transfers and value add specials on pass only while theme park entry is not included in the package. On the other hand, the days that are hole-punched on the ROO pass are inclusive.

How To Save Money on Holiday Travel

According to the majority of sources on travel statistics, this year is expected to be a busy one for holiday travel. Whether you're going home for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, you can bet that the price of an airline ticket is going to be higher than last year, too. Here are five tips that help you save money on your holiday travel, including airport parking.

Be Flexible On Arrival/Departure Days

The number one thing to keep in mind when booking your holiday air travel is the law of supply and demand. Most people will want to book a flight the day or so before Christmas or Hanukkah and return one or two days afterward, and will prefer Friday or Sunday departures. Obviously, those days are going to cost more because more travelers desire them. If you can be a bit flexible and leave midweek or stay longer so you're not departing on the peak day, you'll get a better deal. In fact, you could save up to 50 percent by departing on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday!

Avoid Traveling During the Holiday Week

You can save even more money if you completely avoid traveling during the week surrounding the holiday. For instance, if you're okay celebrating Christmas before or after the actual day, you'll find the lines shorter and the airfare much cheaper. Sure, most of us want to celebrate on the "real" holiday, but if you have a large family or several different groups to visit, this might be a very feasible alternative to spending a small fortune on holiday travel while allowing everyone to have a turn with different members of the family.

Reserve Airport Parking in Advance

Not only is the airport going to be extremely busy over the holidays, but so will the parking lots surrounding it. Do yourself a favor and reserve a spot in advance at an offsite parking facility. This offers several advantages for the holiday flyer. For one, it guarantees you a spot to park your car. For another, it usually always costs less that parking onsite - and if you can find an online coupon for the parking provider, it's even cheaper. Take the stress and hassles out of finding a secured parking spot and getting to the terminal on time when you travel for the holidays this year by reserving it in advance.

Don't Make Group Flight Reservations

If there's a large group of you traveling together, don't take the easy way out and look for a batch of tickets with a single airline on a single flight. You'll end up paying the highest rate found on one seat for all of your seats. Instead, look for availability for two passengers at a time and book your air travel that way. You may not all be seated together on the flight, but you will pay less.

When You Buy Tickets Matters

You've probably heard advice that recommends you buy your airline tickets long before the holiday season so that you get the flight you desire. But doing so can mean you'll pay far more than you need to. Think about it - airlines are counting on holiday flights being full so the earliest rates for those flights will be expensive. But as the time draws nearer and there's still seats left, the airline will usually discount them just so they fill the flight. Don't wait until the very last minute, though, because you'll pay a premium for necessity.

When it comes to saving money for holiday travel, there are ways to do it. Just remember that timing is everything and reserving your flight at just the right time while booking your airport parking ahead of time allows you to stay in your budget.

Holiday Travel - Plan Ahead For Airport Parking

Most travelers are very aware of the importance of arriving early at the airport. But more often than not, travelers often overlook on thing that can cause them a lot of headache and loss of time before they actually step into the terminal building: airport parking.

Many travelers just assume that they'll be able to pull right into the airport economy parking lot and grab a spot close to their terminal building. They've got their ticket ready and left a lot of time to get through airport security. But when they pull into the parking lot, they discover that every single economy lot is completely full! Or it could even be worse - every single parking lot at the whole airport is full. Such may be the case during the holiday travel times. They can fill up fast.

However, there are still some ways that you can avoid getting stuck at the airport without a parking spot. Naturally, the best course of action is to completely avoid driving your car to the airport at all. Simply take a tax, bus, shuttle, or any other form of public transportation. Or you can always arrange for friend or family to drop you off, but this, of course, inconveniences them a bit. And what if you have an early morning flight and don't want to force them to get up at 3 am? Well, another option is off-site services. They can shuttle you to the airport at any time if you make advanced arrangements. If you live in a populated area, you can also probably find a number of shared services that will pick you up right at your home. These services just split the cost amongst the other riders to save you money.

But if you feel like you really need to drive by yourself, you might want to keep in mind that you may even be able to make online reservations for a parking spot. It depends on where you're located, because many airports don't offer this service yet, but it's worth checking into, right? But if you're flying at one of America's larger airports, like New York or Chicago, they probably offer advanced reservations through a variety of companies.

Taking the Stress Out of Holiday Travel With Children

It's never an easy thing when you have to travel during the holiday season. Consider traffic jams, winter weather, delayed flights, and crowded airports. With new airline procedures and rules, fuel costs and the multitude of cutbacks found in airline service, you might even find things worse than ever this year. The addition of children to this equation could potentially make you reconsider your plan to leave home at all.

Before you go ahead and cancel your plans, take a look at some of these stress reducing tips which can help make your travel plans that much easier to contend with.

1) Make it a family affair. There's no need to wait until all of the planning has been made to get your kids excited about your holiday journey. By involving everyone in the planning process, your children will more likely be more invested in the trip. You can easily give them their own tasks to accomplish: Have your oldest child help you search for the movie theater closest to Uncle Jake's house, or have your toddler pick out the toys or books she wants to bring for the car ride to Grandma's house.

2) When it comes to packing your bags, keep things organized by separating clothing in clear zipper bags you can label with names and contents. It's much easier to locate things when they are labeled "Dad's underwear" or "Sally's pajamas". You can reuse the bags to hold dirty laundry on the way home. Remember to pack an extra duffle bag in your luggage if you intend to be bringing additional items back with you.

3) Let the family know exactly what you've planned. Kids, especially younger ones, will feel more secure about your travels if they know what to expect. Some potentially scary situations for little ones could include security check points at the airport. If your children are made aware of how these situations are performed, they will feel a little less anxious about them. You may want to explain that yes, Teddy the Bear will have his picture taken on the moving belt, but he can be picked up again on the other side.

4) You may want to consider scheduling a couple of extra days to your vacation time. It's always prudent to have some wiggle room in case of unforeseen circumstances, such as weather, illness or other delays. This can also be helpful if your vacation time is focused on any of the major holidays. This step alone can save you both time and money if you don't have to travel on peak days.

5) Try and book non-stop flights to your destination when at all possible. This can eliminate lay-over hassles when you have children in tow. It's much easier for a non-stop flight to avoid bad weather thousands of feet in the air than it is for them to land or take off in the same type of weather.

While these tips might not seem to be earth-shattering things to do, you would be amazed at how much they can actually reduce the stress levels related to your travel experience. Just a little bit of extra planning and preparation can take care of many potential headaches, allowing you to enjoy your holiday as well.

What a gray, rainy and chilly day it was here in Jersey. Upon waking today both Aaron and I looked at each other and Aaron asked  "Did you get the number?...of the bus that hit me?" 
 Yesterday was a super physical day for us. So we took this gray day to rest up a bit and I'm thrilled to have my favorite favorite favorite candle burning tonight. 


 For us and most households in our area the post-storm clean up has happened in waves  The first things to clean up were the contents of your home. Anything damaged...couches, rugs, beds, appliances... and of course anything that washed or floated into your home or yard...from garbage cans to cars to hot tubs. You had to gather all of this stuff and then it turned into mounds and mounds on streets. Which was then picked up by trucks equipped with little cranes.
And then for the next step everyone waited and waited for Insurance Companies and FEMA and building contractors. I personally contacted 3 different builders and only heard back from one, more than a week later. They are all completely booked well into the new year. Understandably. So we tried Home Depot for a quote on the floors. They came out to see us within 2 days and took really detailed measurements and photos. We were emailed a quote within 36 hours along with some floor plans with all of our measurements. And they gave us a full break down on the price. Holy CROW was it a ton of money. But it seems like they are going rate from what I have heard and seen online.
It's a strange circumstance. If this were a planned, leisurely home improvement I know we'd be excited on a whole different level. But when it is winter and the house is super duper cold from lack of insulation underneath all we're concerned with is getting things done now and fast. And we've got it better then most. There are families with fully gutted homes right now.
So in order to get the house re-insulated from the ground up, Aaron and Walt were working underneath      the house in the muddy crawl space. Almost all of the current insulation had gotten soaked in the flood and fell down into the mud. So all that stuff being under our house is stinky and because it fell down it has made the house so so cold! 



Aaron who has an awful case of claustrophobia braved the insane mini opening, and low ceiling...and was fully under the house pulling out all sorts of yuck and tossing it out for me to bag up. 
 Our next task is to level the ground under there a bit more and create a moisture barrier. Then we have a guy coming in to spray the whole thing with foam insulation. Cannnnot wait!  Seriously...it is all I think about these days! The house has been so so cold. It will stop some of my worrying.



My little brother Walt in his "profesh" Tyvec suit.  ha! 


Everything is covered in this thick sludge that smells like the bay. We found all sorts of crazy random things under the house that must have been forced in by the water. Lots of driftwood and things we'd never seen before.


This little guy just makes me laugh. This is what I saw as I came to the top of the stairs. He was waiting for me to come back up for my coat and bag...and make the bed. Well, at least I grabbed the coat and bag. : )




We took a walk to the store the other day and stopped off at our town Christmas Tree. I loved seeing the handmade ornaments hung all low and in a line around the bottom of the tree. Judging by height I'd say the little tree trimmers were kindergarteners. :)  

Everything has just been a bit weird. That is the word I will use. Everything has changed. And I'm trying to get used to it all. So hard to put to words. I'm thrilled to be able to move forward and start on the road to making our house a home again. And I hope that we can continue to help our neighbors. Everyone is still in need of a lot of help.

Thank you so much for popping in and checking on us. Both Aaron and I really appreciate it! Sending you so much love from the NJ Shore!
Here's to a great week ahead!
