From Universal Studios Hollywood to the Disneyland Resort, you are not going to want to miss any of the excitement. If you missed the spot, you can watch it now as our #moviemonday:

Plus, at Universal Studios Hollywood, you can experience Minion Mayhem, Jurassic Park – The Ride, and coming this summer an all new Walking Dead attraction.

Cruises are such an affordable way to travel because they include your accommodations, transportation to awesome destinations (via the ship), food, onboard activities and more! Hot summer cruises include Alaska, Mexican Riviera, Caribbean and Bahamas. Airfare SLC to Orlando (Port Canaveral) has been as low as $230 per person round trip! Or, Disney Cruise Line just announced three different West Coast sailings for next year. These sell out really quickly, so you'll want to call our cruise department at 877.510.2929 asap to reserve yours. We work with all cruise lines and find the lowest prices. You can ask our agents about cruise specials, reduced deposits and more!

No matter where your summer vacation takes you, we'd love to help you get there! Book online or call our vacation experts at 855-GET-AWAY.
