UPDATED JANUARY 2020 Last week, the team at Get Away Today kicked off the 2020 Familiarization Trip to Southern California. Our yearly "FAM" trip allows us to check in with our hotel and theme park partners and prepare us for giving the very best advice to our guests when it comes to travel.

FAM 2020 Summary

It's been our pleasure to meet with the following Anaheim hotels near Disneyland and visit Knott's Berry Farm, America's first theme park. For the FAM 2020, there's an extra dose of magic because Get Away Today is also celebrating 30 years! That's right; we've hit the big 3-0 and we're so excited! In addition to our FAM 2020, we offered over 70 vacation-themed giveaways in honor of Get Away Today's 30th anniversary

FAM 2020 - Knott's Berry Farm

It was also our pleasure to spend a few hours at America's first theme park, Knott's Berry Farm. They're approaching their 100th anniversary, and it was wonderful to celebrate with them. If you're not familiar with Knott's, it's a Peanuts paradise! You'll find thrill coasters, themed shops and dining and even a water park during the summer season. Camp Snoopy is sure to delight younger guests at Knott's Berry Farm, and you'll want to try the fried chicken and boysenberry anything while you're there.

FAM 2020 - Disneyland Day 1

Here's what we loved during our first FAM 2020 day at the Disneyland Resort. 

Our whole group utilized the Extra Magic Hour offered exclusively to Disneyland Resort Hotel guests. This allowed us to enter the Park one hour before it opened to the public. Since we were guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, we used our Extra Magic Hour to head into Disney California Adventure Park via the exclusive entrance for hotel guests.

Our early entry, combined with MaxPass, allowed us to experience so many rides before the regular crowds picked up at 8am. It was amazing to feel like we had free reign over the Park! We highly recommend adding MaxPass on your next Disney vacation. It's the most convenient way to take advantage of the Fast pass service at the Disneyland Resort.

We'll be sharing more about our FAM 2020 this week, so be sure to check back!
