      At the Polynesian, we paid $500 a night for one of those studio apartments with a balcony that had a direct view of Cinderella's castle (regular price was $800). It was convenient to have two full bathrooms when rushing out to the parks in the mornings, and it was very nice to take the boat to and from Magic Kingdom, and the pool and stuff was great, but is it worth it? Not in my opinion, although my daughter feels differently. We went for 2 nights. We usually stay at places like the Swan, Port Orleans, etc...they are ~225 a night and great- a better value I think. Another plus would be if they had the electric water parade or fireworks to watch from the beach there, but those weren't happening.

        I really want to take the kids back to Universal (we love harry potter) and WDW. I'm thinking next October.

          Just got back from Hawaii on Wednesday. Came across $540 flights out of the midwest over spring break which is unheard of. They're usually 3x that. I also had some United credits from cancelled trips last year that I was able to apply so myself, DD and my mom went for 6 days and we got our flights for a little over $300/person. I had enough Marriott points to cover the hotel stay. We rented a car for the week (public transport is still limited there) and explored Big Island on our own. We did have to get COVID tests before leaving and again at the airport in HI. Overall the island is taking COVID really seriously - people wore masks in the open air hotel, on the trails and some even on the beach. Did not see a single person wearing their mask below their nose or complaining about wearing them. We only booked 2 weeks before leaving and the whole time leading up to it we were kind of just preparing ourselves that the trip may not happen due to all the circumstances that had to align for us to get there, but we made it and we came home healthy and it was SOOOO nice to travel again.

            I'm jealous. Big island is our favorite island. We always stay on the kona side due to weather and things we like to.

            $300 is certainly cheap enough for flights.

              I think I would probably elect to stay on the Kona side the whole trip next time... or honestly maybe try another island but we did love it. What really surprised me most was the difference between the water on the Kohala coast vs Kona coast. Resort district isn't typically my jam but wow the water was worth it. Lake Tahoe clear vs normal California ocean kind of difference with a 45 minute drive. We sat on our 6th floor balcony and could see turtles, fish and mantas swimming in the bay clear as day from that far away.

                "Fully vaccinated people can travel safely again, CDC says"

                This may be the start of a watershed.

                Let the vacation planning begin!!

                  We have nothing planned for 2021, but have recently booked a cruise for 2022. Hopefully, that will work out.

                    I haven’t made any, but I think they’ll happen. I’m more than ready for a vacation.

                      While my husband and I are planning a trip for the fall. Booked everything on this site as usual. Before the pandemic, they always booked there, there were never any problems, pleasant service at the highest level. We will go on a tour of Tanzania, I hope for a bright and colorful safari!

                        I just flew cross-country for an extended "business trip," and I'll admit that it felt a little weird sitting on the commercial airliner with random unknown people sitting all around me. But the airports seemed almost as busy as they normally always have been, perhaps very slightly less crowded.

                          I flew to Florida in December. Philadelphia airport was definitely way less crowded. But the plane was packed. It was pretty uncomfortable. And of course, many people weren't wearing masks properly in the terminal. At least on the plane, the attendants were walking around and telling people to put their masks on. I'm fully vaccinated so my level of concern about catching COVID is lower but I still want to see the proper precautions being taken for everyone's benefit.
