Who else is in that. Cincinnati and houston in that. Yeah lucky me. You just rattled off one powerful independent byu a couple of group of five schools cincinnati. A lot of people think for a playoff spot this year because the schedule and then. Ucs tonight pot. You know gus malzahn. Well i spoke with him yesterday. As part of our coaches call. And it's no secret. Malzahn took this job because he was one a good fit for him but to hey knows that. Ucf is on the verge getting out of that group of five corridor and getting into power. Five football dan stand that the the winds are change. You're going to happen every year. We talked playoff expansion to twelve teams which would benefit. Ucf gus malzahn cincinnati. Luke fickle until. I'm not surprised in the least bit that. Ucf is coveted spot wide. Because it's the state of florida smack down to the central their orlando.

Staff sergeant miller medal of honor recipient for conspicuous extraordinary gallantry in afghanistan on january twenty fifth of two thousand eight. His father did not mention that because he was speaking gold star parents. Everywhere there in agony over this debacle. Senator and i mean humility in the fact that he didn't tell us his son medal of honor recipient itself honorable but i think he wanted to make a broader point. Which is it's a very tough time for people like you and for veterans but especially for gold star families. Yeah absolutely a hue and one of my dearest friends is a gold star wife and she has been speaking quite loudly. She's been you know out. I'm talking on radio shows just that the sacrifice said her husband made in afghanistan nearly a decade ago and are gold star. Families are often those forgotten once they have sacrificed so much and yet they fall outside of the the normal everyday thinking. We're thinking about our wounded where we're thinking about the veterans that served because we can speak out but we allow the memories of those old star families Their loved ones just fade away and we shouldn't ever do that because their sacrifice is greater than any of us.

"I want you to tell our audience if you would please a little bit about the mechanics of a destination marketing organization. It's different than a corporation in some cases. Talk a little bit about how your funded and and who. Your constituencies are just saw the social security kind of understand unique nature of that work. Yeah definitely so. We represent a pretty much more than eleven hundred businesses within or throughout the orlando area. We are funded by tourism development taxes. So basically if someone stays in orlando's hotel you get the bed tax on your folio Contributes to how we get funded We actually serve a board as well so there's a lot of decisions get. There's a lot of city and county inclusion in all of the decision making a for organization. If you are a restaurant and attraction in orlando are you automatically part of the visit orlando collective or do you have to sort of opt in or add some funds on your own. How does how does that part. Yeah you do have to become a member within visceral though so you know we as you can imagine where big city we've got tons and tons of businesses here and range from the very big theme parks that everyone knows laws to small mom and pop shop down the street in all of them need representation in services so they opted to become a member of israel. There's different tiers of membership. And based on that we we. We do our best to support and promote all the different venues and businesses that we have aired the destination. I always find that to be one of the most interesting and challenging elements of this kind of work atkins convert we service strategist for a number of destination marketing organizations in different cities and states around the us. And and you're right. The the small independent restaurant is a member and they have needs as does universal studios or anybody else in talk about two very different audiences. It's a real challenge and you think about most businesses having much tighter target audience or target constituents than you do so i know it's got to be exciting challenging at the same time absolutely i mean each one of them has a unique story to tell though so we focus on that theme park stories is very different In the story of lake local shops is very different. But there's a unique element in each of. We do our best to provide support to both to the right audience to help them get this

Cuomo cut three on cnn. Listen to him sort of gloating over rising hospitalizations and incidentally that is a figment of anybody's imagination. The hospitals are being challenged right now in florida as they are in many hostile many counties and cities and counties and states around the country had a friend in orlando the celebration. Florida area. Wife had a spider bite. Look pretty bad. They wanted to take her to the er and they were told they called. they said. please don't come. This is a covert hotspot r. e. r. here in celebration. Florida is overrun right now. Which of course always leads me to wonder about other medical conditions and other procedures and other things that people are able to get to because of covert but here was cnn anchor. Chris cuomo ripping into governor ron to santa's accusing him of holding the whole country hostage to covert question becomes as a policy perspective is. How long do you allow the majority of this country. Republicans democrats independents south-north majority of every group and demographic we have gotten vaccinated. How long do you allow them to be held hostage in states. Let's say like florida where you have the governor saying. Yeah i know it's breaking out. We're going the other way this florida.

We just had to convert to diet soda. As i drink out of my endless summer resort mug. Auburn is monk. We'll see. Yeah because disney only has the mugs and the resorts correct an assist works really well in and universal has that system. Also um i kind of think sorry now. Doing doing work for everyone's podcast. Camouflage the resort mugs and the freestyle Needs to be an article because it's really gotten complicated because each eight a universal has different policies. Gonna know your own resort mug policy. I got i got burned on that helping out ceska burski the writer of the unofficial guide a universal because the policy was changing while i was staying at dockside in it endless summer but but most of the time You can get a length of stay free stop cup at resort for eighteen or nineteen dollars for the entire time could do so but you cannot use sorry. I'm hijacking this. You cannot use your freestyle cup for the park and resort and you cannot use your resort when in the park to separate operations. Yes that makes sense some What's another good one now. The tip. I think we're just gonna go with this one. Universal has done a great job trying to just admit compete with disney with their nighttime operations. they've really upgraded their lagoon. Show their cinematic spectacular studios for the half. Every night was some fireworks now. In orlando is inside or like the orlando property. They have limited. Fireworks can do legally because of noise.

"Is not magic kingdom. Please take this takes us to someone who is a baptist minister with all of the glory. I may be a moderate baptist minister. However i want you to take this fall to earth. There's something it's really hard to acquire it magic kingdom for adults the you can find everywhere. University orlando. it's called adult beverages and many people are smart enough to know that they can walk back to the hard rock hotel and not have a problem is they perhaps had two beverages. You know perhaps two or three. I'm i'm just saying i'm not making a judgment here. Don't take that the wrong way. I'm happy to make judgments in other settings but if you know you're gonna walk back to your hotel and you're not leaving the resort you've been is responsible as you can be but yet that would not be the same phenomenon. That's why use the magic kingdom analogy is if universal is i know we're digressing from the. It's like the horror the horror makeup show which is one of their original attractions. One of the standard lines from the script of the horror makeup show which is kind of a comedy show. If you're familiar with it. Is that they modified through the years. We're not disney. We don't have to be nice to the children. And then the in the current script the other actor will say. We have harry potter. Now don't say that anymore. Okay but universal decided a long time ago that they were going to target teenagers and adults. And if you're gonna target adults that does mean adult beverages and so you should factor that in because the dull beverages will cost you less than they do a disney property. And you'll probably drink more of them than you think you will. And they serve some pretty awesome. Drinks spoken spoken to someone. Who's a non drinker. I know when. I go with people. You just can't understand john. I'm like i know you just you just happily spent such such money on this bubba bit endless summer this gigantic thing for thirty dollars in. It's all the beverages you're going to need for the rest of your life and nice or you know and till you go back to your room. Well the rest of your stay. Let's put it that way. But the big difference before i get fried aside in this whole list because i you guys didn't hardly beginning of mine. is universal is much cheaper than going to disneyworld. That's not arguable. Let's be fair. Universal has two parks. While disneyworld has four and universal's parks are even smaller than disneyworld park so bud if you wanted to buy a season to call a season patou.

I figured it out then i just watch other people get scared although they do get me which is awesome. It's it's it's the most amazing halloween event anywhere. No so sad that it wasn't last year. I'm can't wait for for this year. Yep h thirty. So i'm gonna just pay duct tape. Remember what i told you about h. What was it again. I've never done an ancient. You have not no.

And we're going to be talking about. Maybe some insider tips some obvious some not so obvious. I will be probably presenting the obvious. And i'm hoping that john's got some not so obvious. And we're gonna talk about what you may not know about you. Oh are universal orlando resort and and enhance your experience. That's what we're doing cool so starting okay. So i think i think i'm a little afraid of john and that he's going to show us all up so john's gonna go last just suggest because in his reversing we were talking about disney that five percent of writing. I remember disney. The three of you would scare me to death. If you want me to do my three last we could do that. Okay we could do that. Why don't we. We're going to start with steve. I'm gonna really mix this up all three. We're going to do that. I'm going to completely change the plan. And steve's gonna give three and then sorry sharpie. I'm gonna give three because we're the more obvious answers here. And then go to sharpen unto john. My sharp meet a chat some to you. If you run out can come up with a few is faith in you. I've listened to you can handle it all right so here. We go so this my personal tips universal studios the things i love and my first insider tip for me is to stay on property because a lot of people they'll we we'll get we'll book disney vacations and they'll just want a day trip over to universal studios which which a long time ago was okay because they had one park now. They say they have three because they have volcano bay. Which is the ara park on yet. Have to a really cool water park. Yes so they so so the hey come on. Not fall for that marketing. Yes so they have those so they have the the two and the waterpark. So it's definitely you can go more than a day and then we hadn't stayed on property it's now we have. It's been years but So we we started originally doing the day trip many many years ago but now we stand property so we wouldn't not. Yeah so we will. Every time we go we stand property. Emily advantage yes. So the advantage for me of staying on property is similar to disneyland in california. Where can get to everything by just walking. It's like that small property and they do have buses and boats and walking trails and things like that so there's a a multitude of ways to get around but like will. Last time we were there. We were stayed at the hard rock. And we were in the universal studios park in a matter of less than ten minutes through security and everything and on a ride in less than ten minutes. It was crazy. I don't think it was quite ten minutes but it was we went to. We went to the Yes the stunt show. Is universal family vacations. Article tells you it's a five minute walk from our see pretty close yet again..

A pop up shop sometimes referred to his flash retailing is a trend where an entrepreneur opens up a sales space for a short amount of time. Usually one day. The idea behind this tactic is to generate interest in your products. Make sales and engage your brand with potential customers however the ability to market effectively is a pain point for many small businesses and it was a recurring theme at this event in this episode. We discuss how to attract more customers to your business by understanding your competitive advantages in using your strengths to promote your brand. Stay with us your business. Transformation begins now. Welcome to the knowledge. Catalyst in this podcast. We help small business. Owners accelerate their growth by using knowledge as a strategic asset. Our show is focused on discovering hidden knowledge. Insights small business owners and entrepreneurs can use to build stronger customer relationships better products and increase profitability. If you're looking for innovative tools techniques and strategies to grow your business invest in your success with your host. Dr orlando's guilt in hello and welcome to episode four of the knowledge catalyst in this episode. We take a deeper look at the brand trust. Customer dynamic often misunderstood by small business owners exhibiting at events like weakened pop up shops before we begin it is important to note that pop up events present. Small business owners with a unique opportunity to directly interact with customers. Here is a typical scenario. A potential customer walks up to your booth and will you about your product or the company. At this point you will start to give your sales pitch upon completion of your presentation. The customer may have a few questions will thank you politely. And move to the next vendor. Does this sound familiar question. What value did the customer received from this interaction. A few business owners may reflect on the last discussion to see if they can improve their presentation while others will repeat the same sales pitch for the duration of the event. This interaction highlights the pain point. We touched on in the pre show introduction namely the ability to market effectively. So let's analyze this discussion in more detail. When a customer asks you about your product or company what they really want to know is why should they buy from you. First every prospect you interact with his providing you with valuable observational information and marketing insights like age ethnicity nationality gender income marital status and brand affinities from items like purses clothes jewelry and shoes. You can also gather high level inferences about their personality opinions attitudes and beliefs therefore before while giving your sales pitch you should engage prospects in a discussion to learn more about them in tailor your presentation. According to their wants or needs that emphasize the benefits they will receive using your products again. Remember your main focus should be on providing value second to build trust. You must demonstrate an understanding of products competitive with yours in substitutes. The customer may consider purchasing in lieu of buying from you. This is an important concept in a key. Part of building your brand knowing your competitive advantages and how your product is positioned relative to the competition will yield big dividends so what is a competitive advantage and more importantly. Why should you care a competitive advantage. As a capability or characteristic that enables a company to outperform the competition this allows a company to achieve higher profit margins and creates value for the company. A competitive advantage must be difficult if not impossible to duplicate. If it is easily copied or imitated it is not considered a sustainable competitive advantage in other words a competitive advantage differentiates your company from the competition. It contributes to the ability to set higher prices. Attract more customers and promotes brand loyalty. Establishing a competitive advantage is one of the most important goals for any company however finding or creating a competitive advantage challenging thus before a competitive advantage can be created. it is important to know the following one. You must be clear. On the benefit your product of service provides it must offer real value for example will the benefit offer convenience save money provide personal satisfaction prestige or security to what are the characteristics of your ideal customer and target market and finally who are your competitors. And what are they offering. When a small business goes to market highlighting. Its unique competitive advantages ensure your advantages are specific in not too vague for customers to appreciate for example. Don't promise customers. You will ship out their orders as fast as you can make the advantage clear and easy to grasp instead promised to ship all orders made before four thirty. Pm on the same day they were ordered and you have an advantage. Customers can easily understand. Here is another example. Saying you have the best. Customer service isn't going to translate into a competitive advantage however initiating a unique policy that directly benefits. Your customers will certainly count as a competitive advantage. And we'll be the reason people choose your business over your competitors the key to successfully gaining a competitive advantage as to make a clear concise an easily recognizable distinction between your business and others in your industry to be easily recognizable. The advantage must be demonstrable and easily proven to customers. This will build trust remember customers. Do not buy from people or companies. They do not trust keeping up with marketing trends and not being left behind is a vital aspect of creating a competitive advantage for example if your competitors are using mobile apps and mobile websites your business should also go mobile before. You're the only one who hasn't failing to go. Mobile could make it more difficult for you to attract new customers however if you launch mobile apps as well at a minimum it will help keep your business competitive. A well run. Business might identify multiple competitive advantages when developing a marketing strategy but be cautious about casting too wide a net and weakening the impact of the advantages. Identify the ones that will bring in the most money and focus on those. Of course the biggest mistake companies make is to promise a competitive advantage that they can't deliver this leads to unsatisfied customers. Who won't return not to mention the loss of potential new customers. If you received bad reviews often you're competing in an environment where advantages are slide. in subtle. your advantages may not be apparent or your offer maybe similar to the competition that for all intents and purposes. It's the same but even if that's the case you still have to answer the question posed earlier. Why should a customer buy from you. You need an edge something that triggers the all important purchase decision. So at this point you may wonder how can i create competitive advantages for my business. Here is a list of six common approaches. You can use to create a competitive advantage one. Focus on your online reputation. Today consumers compare reviews on most products and services before purchasing. If you're at the top of the list in terms of your ratings and review comments it gives you a strong competitive advantage. Reputation management is now a vital marketing tactic. Not only do you need to earn positive reviews with great service. You also need to make sure they appear across multiple review platforms google in particular conversely a negative review put. Small businesses at a distinct disadvantage. It's a problem that can jeopardize your business to get the most out of reviews elicit specific comments from customers that reflect the most important aspects of the value you deliver us testimonials on your website that feature names and ideally pictures of actual clients consumers today. Want to know what your customers have to say about you. They trust this content and they expect to find it. Make sure your top rated in your market number to develop a clear and specific value proposition. Your value proposition is where you most directly provide an answer to the question of why a consumer should choose you. This is where you make your case even if your service has basically the same as dozens of other providers you must create a message that distinguishes you from the competition. Maybe you have a slight price delivery advantage. It may come down to customer service. Perhaps you have a unique specialty or work better with a particular type of customer when you develop a value proposition. You answer the in spoken question on. Everyone's mind what's in it for me without this answer. You're just another face in the crowd number three. Be the best information resource. The internet is often called the information superhighway and consumers use it with a keanae to find businesses. That offer unbiased useful information. Informational content through blogs videos and social media gives you a competitive advantage in multiple ways. I when you fill information gaps. That help people solve a problem. You are in trust. People feel like you're doing them a favor and even feel a sense of obligation to work with you because you help them. For example appliance parts. Pros does an excellent job of providing information on their youtube channel. They provide clear. Do it yourself. Instructions offering information to support the use of their products. As a natural part of the service they provide take a look at your market or their information gaps that tend to cause hesitation with buyers. If there are new filled with the high quality useful information you create a powerful competitive advantage. Number four be likable. This is a competitive advantage. Few businesses consider but its impact is huge people. Bhai from people. they like. they're drawn to brands. They have a sense of affinity with the question. Businesses face has to use online marketing to create a likable presence. There have never been better ways to use marketing. Collateral to create a friendly relationship with prospective clients think no further than having facebook friends or the personal touch of instagram photos. Social media is a great opportunity for a business to express its personality. You can be personable. Funny even reverend if it's done properly if you can get people to laugh you've helped your sales 'cause it's also useful to create a voice for your website and other marketing collateral voices the personality or a part of your branding that lets visitors. No there are warm funny carrying people behind your business. Content the internet is full of dry uninspired business content most business owners think they must be dull to sound professional putting some personality into your content as an effective way to be more likable which is a big competitive advantage when surrounded by dull sales copy from your competitors number five segment your target audiences. Most smaller businesses have one marketing campaign that targets all their ideal customers. Notice the word one in the previous sentence. Small businesses can create a big competitive advantage by running multiple marketing campaigns. Marketing is not one size fits all people respond to content that is reflective of their lifestyles and specific to their needs in other words. If someone searches for healthy snacks for truckers. They want to see content that connects directly to that search. If a homeowner wants a deal on a water heater replacement they're more likely to convert on a landing page. That specifically has a deal on water heater installation. Likewise it's powerful to segment campaigns based on demographics if you're targeting baby boomers you won't do well with ads that feature people in their twenties. Smaller businesses typically skipped campaign segmentation because it requires more work in a larger marketing budget. Therefore it gives you a big competitive advantage when customer segmentation has done with precision and finally number six collect and use data to make informed decisions. One sure way to failure as to expend minimal effort setting up an advertising campaign. you can't set and forget your marketing and expect to be competitive digital activities. Leave a trail that marketing contract using data. You can identify what works. And what does not then use the data collected to refine your copy split test. Ads refine your target markets and measure conversion rates. The key takeaways from today's discussion are to use the pop up shop event as a data collection opportunity. By using the knowledge insights collected. You can identify create the competitive advantages which provide the most value to your customers. The pop up shop as also an excellent occasion to test and refine your marketing strategy. If you'd like to learn step by step how to create a competitive advantage for your business.

You're going to have to go through. You know the lines insecurity at city. Walk not too bad though. No you have to do that. If you're a cabana bay. You have to do that. You know go through security anywhere. Yeah anyway Yeah it was. It was fine. It was perfect than cabana basic. Twice at least twice the bryce. Oh yes as early as the next step upright though and i would say and then Avin tura has maybe let's same level or slightly better. Maybe put avin shera below cabana bay Word put it above really well I don't know if it's intended to be that way. Lauren which adults is more Business class yeah insurance value and then obeys value prime. I think it's cabana bay. Avin shoora fire. You're like say what i would say. That's my personal. We're supposed to know this because cook better. Welcome in is nice to. I don't know. I mean it's gonna nice pool editor is like if you're of the millennial you want all the supermodern three you want a robot to deliver some minced to room. I do evan torah well. Anyway it's not a lot of fluff and it's all you need especially for those that don't want to pay for the plus and then you're going to be getting out there. First thing in the morning going to lean. And then you stay till close. It's a no-brainer. I would recommend that anyone would stay there cole. Screw for pros point. Fantastic price point All right so moving on then. Lauren comes into town the next day. I was so surprised. You didn't come in saturday night. Just because we were all coming in saturday there was no way not was not in the cards for me. It would cause i. I wouldn't have been dragging all day. I was so tired because my flight was a six. Am flight so. I had to get up at two o'clock in the morning. That is painful but it was. Okay do the next day. So we checked into hard rock and you guys moved over to hardrock. I checked into hard rock and actually upgraded to a pull the standard use Which i the view of the pool is gorgeous. But if you like to sleep in which i do or take nap if you wanna sleep in past eighty eight. Am yeah the music does start to play very early. Like eight o'clock in the morning. So then you definitely. It's not like it's in your room loud but you can definitely hear that saint noise of it. You can definitely if you know if you know the tune you could make it out. You could probably start singing it. Definitely you can definitely you want to have quiet. Do not get the view. Although it is a beautiful view and having the pool of you you actually do get Of you of universal orlando and that night we actually the one that we actually got to see some of the fireworks go off from there us true and we stay dry And we say dry. That's that's definitely a benefit right there. Yeah so the. There's an a plus and a minus two the view your facing the right way however. Oh yeah so if you don't mind the music and then they play till ten o'clock at night and then it's never in the room then anyway so if you have little kids then you might want to consider that to. It's a consideration and it's not gonna bother some people in it will bother others right. I wake up at the drop of a pin and so it doesn't work for me. But i'm people don't even notice await. Yeah i do hear that right. Oh it's all personal but just to let you know we did hear it and we did notice it. Mantlepieces called hard rock hotel. It's definitely you're you're more lively property out of all of them. Yeah and lisa. You and i both love hard rock because we can walk easily to the parks. It's like a five minute walk. I mean i love stomach it is. I love listening to the bamboo. If that i mean. That's corny. But i like going through the bamboo section and just listening to it russell. It's creaky and it's almost kinda scary like it's gonna fall on you not worry or you can take the boat. Yeah one one-stop well. It's it's a dedicated taxi. So that'll take you to walk. But if you're going to universal studios park then walking as your best bet missile closer as you're going to have to walk that much anyway from the boat to get to the entrance to get across the bridge a little order now universal's though as the was hollywood or The hard rock was hard decorated for christmas l. Yeah yeah. They had the trump in the lobby The halls had been decked yes so The outside the heads they had Staff wreaths son era lenny. So you get into the christmas spirit when you go there absolutely not as much. I don't think as when you went to the parts. Now i'll tell you what universal orlando which was Universal studio side which was very went. I i just wanted to. Lisa got me dancing.

"Been there, so it's at the top of the amatorio hotel. I love the. Moving on up, I've tried to sneak up there. Before before it was opened, the door was locked 'cause I took the stairs. Because elevator went, go up. We did tour being in the Florida Sun you would think you know the heat down there that it would be really hot up there, but it was not hot up there and it was hot that day it was it was a good res. It was nice and cool so this. There's this great rooftop bar. Bar. It's an open air bar. It's got a roof and agree to you. Top of great view. It's at the top of the venture. Hotel and they've got drinks and appetizers, cheese sports, and all kinds of stuff that I think they have a small menu as well. We didn't or or any food that night, but they they actually do have a small dinner menu. I think probably small plates, so we all went up there. They have those big oversized couches. Chairs and then they have like a regular bar as well and we sat up there for a little while, and just hung out and talked and had some drinks, and it was awesome. It was surprisingly an early night. Yeah. Well that was the first night. I think we're all tired. Yeah Oh and I did want to say this to that. I consider myself a pretty well seasoned Park Goer as well as Orlando heat endure. I was exhausted I I. AM OUT OF CONDITION FOR TRAVEL ORLANDO. Between the walking and the heat, it was exhausting and saying nap. You blew me off at the pool. I did. I'm sorry. So. Do you think it was because the massacre? Do you think it was because of the heat I think it was everything you did have to take into account that. Year breathing is. An compromised. and. Yeah it. I felt. Hotter than most trips more fatigued than most. Did I didn't? I must have been well rested for the three months of not doing.

"Hard like a hard, not hard plastic, but like a thick plastic all the way around his seat. The I'll crow to the roof of his car. And he has mask gone. But he had himself like in a bubble of any of the passengers in the car. I would not doubt it I have seen, but if you're in Orlando and you're driving people around, that would give me A. A knows where from and you know. But you know. So but I thought that was really interesting. I. Was not all of them had that all of them had masks on. But he was the only one I saw I was like wow, that's really cool. That is cool. I'm just going through my pictures and they're triggering some thoughts over at Aventura. They've got to four. They've got six elevators. And you know that's plenty of elevators to spread out, but then you feel a little awkward, or you don't want to insult anyone when y'all I'll catch the next one. Well. They've got a sign. That promotes the social distancing, and it says limit one travel party per elevator. I like that it takes the pressure off me, being socially awkward and saying I don't want cooties. And on so much fun to be socially, awkward, though. Now. I'll just follow the rules and. They also have a hand sanitizer at all the elevators on every floor, which is nice yeah. I also liked speaking of elevators, so we took the elevator up to bar seventeen bistro. Not.

"We. Can I don't know? What else okay, so the airports? They're great They're all sanitary their. Space Seen. and I didn't share this one when I I was at the airport and going through security, and they've got those six foot. Spicer's if your distance people. There was a guy behind me and he's got his headphones on, and he's just Jaman. He's listening. He's right behind me and so I try and screwed up a little and then he'd stood up a little. Food back up. Your sleeves, sometimes like because I caught myself doing that. A couple of times like mover in lines and stuff in universal, where like all the sudden like the personal front hooves, you automatically search a move, and then all the sudden. I would get up to them and I'd be like. Oh, wait I'm supposed to social distance that I would take a couple of steps back but I think it's really easy to get in back into the normal and forget about what we're supposed to be doing to behave. You know right and that was the good. I thought, everybody was very well behaved like I would say ninety nine point nine percent of the time we were there. That, you encounter somebody like that. But with with this guy I got all the way up, and they were checking my ID and. He's following me again. He's right behind me. He's an and the TSA ladies. Use Me Sir and he takes headphones off. He's and she's like. Have you heard of social distancing? And he looks around, and he's kind of like a face palm is. My bad and he backed up and I'm like. Thank you easy to forget. Yeah, I agree so airports. Good I I'm happy with how they're doing it. They For US anyway, they didn't take our tickets. They just had a scan them, and so there was less touching. That was fine. and then again those middle seats were left empty. We did go with a full flight. Though full meaning. Aisles, windows. So frontier for anybody who flies frontier. They are not doing the middle seat thing. they're feeling the whole plane. My flight down was. Half full. And I was put in a Nihil with it was made plus two other people. And Nobody was in two three seats in front of me. Like it was completely empty, so before we took off I went up to the flight. Attendant. Just said Hey. Do you mind if I move up one row? just so I don't have to be on top of people I don't know. And, he was like he's like he's like. As soon as I closed the door, you can move on. Somebody's sitting there. And then he closed the door, and then he came over to me and he goes ahead and move up. Yeah, had so you had? but on my way home. A full flight, but I was fine home with other agents, so we all sat together. You're on the way home. I had no one else in my row, and I had the same situation where I had the girls across the aisle from me, and they all got to sit together. It was it was ideal I couldn't have wished for anything better except maybe closer to the front. Right Right, okay, let's get us to Orlando and It's Tuesday. We all arrive. Are we GONNA do all universal together and then do all Disney springs together. We'll do it in chronological order. Okay. I'M GONNA. Look at my pictures and that's GonNa. Help Guide me so we. Yet there I think I was one of the first ones there and then we got the hotel room and I was. Just kind of hanging out for a while and some things to note about the hotel itself. They do have the plastic. Barriers. At the counter at the check in dusk to separate you. They wipe the keypads. Before you use them? When you enter the building. My favorite thing? They, have you sh- They have two doors at Avenue Charles and they have you go in. One side where they've got an attendant on duty. Who's going to then take your temperature or check for your Your wristband which shows you already had your temperature taken for the day? So which is genius by the way? So we had our temperature taken, we were given a wristband. They had three colors that they alternate every day, so you have to get checked every day. And they make sure that your respond as taken off, so you can't have to at one time. Sunday. I tried to get my wristband my temperature. Check to my wristband, but nobody here what I don't understand what happened. But I did every morning I would get up and go down for my my. Java beant. And I would go down I would get my temperature checked. Get my wristband on and go get my job being beverage. and. That was my morning ritual every single morning. That's what I did and I was like. I was I loved that they did that that little band. Once you got that done for the day when you got the park, she didn't have to do it when you went to city walk. You didn't have to do it. You were good for the day. It was amazing, and it made it so much simpler, and he didn't have to worry about because I mean honestly one thing. You've got to consider when you're down, there is getting overheated. You know and then having to sit and wait and take. Take your temperature again. I think that's happened to Jessica. Yes you know it did, but like you get overheated and you get hot because you're. You're out in the heat, and you're standing in lines at tot and you know. Throw in in people with menopause. It's a risk factor..

"So we. We stayed. Winning the recipes. So how is? So I guess what's what's travel like with covert nineteen? Our they handling it. What are the? Things that they're doing differently. You guys. You both flew down I was gonNA say let's back up to the flights. Flights site was amazing. Yeah the flights were fine. I flew on South West. And I didn't have the best. Number. Wordy number you do that essentially, you grab a seat Yep. So having a party of four. We just kept going to the back of the plane, and I did find a row of three that was open, and the three girls could sit there. They weren't filling the middle seats unless you. Were traveling together with someone. And I sat across the aisle. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect. The flight was fine. Everyone kept their mask on if they took a drink of something. They lowered their mask and put it back on. Everyone played by the rules. It was wonderful. At my flight was to I actually I. It was amazing because I walked I flew frontier. And I walked into the airport. and. There was nobody in the terminal. I walked right. I mean the thing checked my bag. Walked up up to. The TSA gate area. and. was, the only one they actually had to turn the belt on for me. So Weird, MT, SAP check. There was nobody in line. It's rely stuff through. The other side everybody wore masks. Not Everything was open in the air for so make sure you pack snacks if you're doing right now before everything does open. but it was easy and even Orlando. Airport was quiet like they had one side of the airport actually closed. They only had one side operating. When I landed. I thought that was interesting. And we, we have to give a shout out to Charlie. Charlie. Charlie Ah Park Avenue. he does car service. In the Orlando area. And he came and he picked us all up. took us to the hotel and then on the way back, he took us back. He's phenomenal. If you're looking for a car service in the Orlando area, reach out to Charlie, Park Avenue he rocks. And Public Service announcement. And it's interesting because he's got an array of vehicles as well, so yes, yeah, we ended up getting transport in a vehicle that could probably transport or the people. And he's got limos and I think he's got town cars. He's got vans. So whatever your party size it may be. Nice. Yeah well, you get the private transfers, which is nice. So you don't have to worry about yeah germs, and and he serious awesome, he's on time. His drivers are great like never had a bad experience with him, yeah! Fairly good. All right so back on track. So sorry or service announcement is over. Yeah, so over overhead, the Atlanta airport. we check their bags. We did have a little bit of a weight. There were people at the southwest counter, and so we had bags check and we did that. going through security a problem. We have lines not like what you had. We are guess busier, so that seems to reason. But not a not an issue at all. We were through in twenty minutes bags checked through security and on our way to our gate. Nobody's allowed in or out of Jersey at this point, so that may be why there was nobody at the. We're, in lockdown still. But I did notice that not a lot of things were open at all. That was a little disappointing. I have to say my favorite thing that I had when I got down there. With starbucks! Oh, you're so funny. Because you haven't had missing so. I've only had one starbucks. The entire time I was in lockdown and it was only because my husband had to go to school. And on his way back, he stopped and got me a starbucks because he knows I love starbucks, and but otherwise it's a half hour away, so I wasn't driving to starbucks, so he got me a starbucks OC. I've in three and a half months. I've only had one starbucks. I had a starbucks at least once a day while I was there. Yes, nice, especially, because of his right there by each resort. Yeah that's fun treasure. Because I didn't I love my starbucks and I. Don't think I had. We had it in the airport and that was it. And here's another. PSA. We. Got Off the airplane. And saw starbucks and I was with some other agents. We had already met up. Like, we need our caffeine, we need to get going, so we got in line and. It's. It probably took US thirty minutes to get their, coffee. and. You know it is what it is starbucks. They make it all by hand. Popular people are waiting. Okay well, then we go on the train across to luggage and. When you're on your way down the escalator. There's a starbucks on your right. Not, a person in line was the one when you're walking towards magical. Express right. It's hardly ever anybody in that line. The his brutally weights in the lineup stairs. Not Realizing there's one dancer exactly I kicking myself, and so that in mind if you need your starbucks chick. Will now there's a line. Why did you tell them? No, no, no, no, it's okay. We.
