Take the scenic route for your vacation and explore America's landscapes by rail! Rail vacations offer an inclusive, customizable, picturesque way to visit incredible landmarks and natural wonders across North America. With rail connecting some of the most beautiful and popular destinations across the United States and Canada, rail vacations offer an eco-friendly, flexible, and fun way to discover America.
Rail vacations can typically be booked up to 24 months in advance for a deposit of as little as $100 per person. Please note that the deposit for these vacations is nonrefundable - however, travelers who book new reservations through September 30, 2020 have the option to change their travel dates or cancel their rail vacation up to 5 days prior to departure without incurring any change or cancellation fees. Customers that opt to cancel will be issued a future travel credit, which is valid for 24 months.
Family Beach Vacation
There's nothing quite like a relaxing beach vacation with something that everyone in the family can enjoy, and our top pick for an amazing, family-friendly beach vacation is Beaches Resorts! Play on pristine, white-sand beaches caressed by crystal-clear seas. Spend your family vacation in luxurious rooms and suites. Enjoy a whole array of incredibly exciting and fun activities for kids of every age. You may never want to come home!
As a sister brand of Sandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts are also available to book through 2023 and offer a refundable deposit in most cases. It's actually best to book Beaches Resorts well in advance - due to high demand and a limited number of locations (2 in Jamaica, 1 in Turks & Caicos), popular dates and room types often sell out in advance.
Walt Disney World
A classic milestone vacation destination, Walt Disney World is now open again with modified operations for their four theme parks. If you're ready to have some magic to look forward to, you can now book vacation packages through late September of 2021 with only a $200 refundable deposit. The rest of 2021 is expected to be available to book later this year.
Bonus: Looking for a little taste of Disney, but aren't ready for a visit to the theme parks quite yet? Disney offers some beautiful and relaxing beach resorts, so you can enjoy a beach resort vacation with a little touch of pixie dust. You can soak it all in at Disney's Vero Beach Resort in Florida, or Disney's Hilton Head Resort in South Carolina. These resorts can typically be booked 7-11 months in advance with a refundable deposit.
Universal Orlando Resort
Home to many favorite adventures including Jurassic Park, Marvel Superhero Island, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Orlando Resort is a great place for thrills and immersive fun. The resort re-opened on June 5, and has put a variety of health and safety measures in place so guests can enjoy their adventure as safely as possible – you can learn more about their updated policies here. Vacation packages are also available for all of 2021, and can be booked for a refundable deposit of $50 per person.
