Fox World Travel’s Green Bay office, designated an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner

Fox World Travel’s Green Bay office has been designated by Disney Destinations as an “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner” based on its strong support in selling Disney vacations.

Fox World Travel has been in business for over 55 years, and has gained specialized knowledge on vacations to the Disneyland® Resort, Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney Cruise Line® and Adventures by Disney® vacations.

Many travel counselors at Fox World Travel’s Green Bay office have received extensive training on Disney Destinations theme parks, resorts, cruises, vacation packages and more, and can provide the utmost in professional assistance in planning customized Disney vacations.  In fact, one reason the agency attained the “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner” status is that all of the front-line leisure travel agents at this office are College of Disney Knowledge graduations.  The College of Disney Knowledge is an in-depth comprehensive course that allows agents to develop their expertise regarding the Disney Destinations – knowledge that consumers can take advantage of when planning a Disney vacation.

Fox World Travel has multiple other locations throughout Wisconsin who are also recognized as “Authorized Disney Vacation Planners”.

Happy Earth Day – this is the year of sustainable tourism

Did you know that 2017 has been designated International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the United Nations? The goal is not only to raise awareness of sustainable travel but also to support changes in policies, business practices and consumer behavior, including the following five key areas:

  1. Inclusive and sustainable economic growth
  2. Social inclusiveness, employment, and poverty reduction
  3. Resource efficiency, environmental protection, and climate change
  4. Cultural values, diversity, and heritage
  5. Mutual understanding, peace, and security

Katie Tappa, Travel Specialist in Green Bay, was recently awarded “G Adventures’ Ambassadors of Change” for 2017. G Adventures is a tour operator providing sustainable small-group tours, safaris and expeditions all over the world.

Tappa believes adventure travel is a style and a perspective of travel that goes against the standard “cookie cutter” vacation. Adventure travel does not have to mean white water rafting, zip lining or rock climbing—although it certainly could—it is really a new way of experiencing a destination in a more authentic way. She believes adventure can be found in the most unexpected ways.

“Adventure is immersing yourself in a village, a town, a city, a country—not just reviewing a hotel in that region,” said Tappa.  “It is tasting the food you wouldn’t normally eat, conversing with individuals you normally wouldn’t have the chance to, and experiencing life in someone else’s shoes.”

The best part of adventure travel is there is no age limit or real physical requirements to be an adventure traveler. Travelers need only an openness and desire to experience a destination in a new and exciting way.

Next week, Tappa is heading to Peru as an Ambassador of Change through G Adventures.  Follow her adventure on our Facebook or Instagram page.
