Today in Disney Parks and Resorts History - Morocco Pavilion Debuts


September 7, 1984 – Walt Disney World

Morocco debuts as the first new international pavilion to be added to Epcot’s World Showcase since the park opened in October 1982. The pavilion is situated between Japan and France, and is the first pavilion to be sponsored by a national government instead of a corporation.  The King of Morocco sent royal craftsmen to do all of the carvings, paintings and hand lay all of the tile work through the pavilion, which recreates the architectural styling and atmosphere of Casablanca, Fez, and Marrakesh.

Tips on Thursday - 24 Romantic Honeymoon Destinations

I’m in the mood for love - or at least the mood is in the air! 

Love. Romance. Words that tend to pop-up a lot in the month of February, what with Valentine's Day having just passed us by and the thoughts of the coming spring season, and the traditional wedding season. Weddings. Honeymoons. It's that time once again where couples are planning that once-in-a-lifetime trip that they'll take after they first get married.  But where to go? Despite that well known Disney theme park attraction song... the world really isn't small - there are SO MANY terrific places that couples might go to enjoy their first few days or weeks as married people.  

Last summer, CNN featured an article listing the Top 24 Romantic Destinations, which I'm featuring here:  


In reading through this article once again, I was thrilled to see all the cool destinations. Some were a no brainer. Others were a true gem that many may have not considered.  All of them are available to you through Cruise Planners. 

The Top 5:
5. South Africa
4. Portugal
3. Morocco
2. Tahiti
1. Switzerland

The best thing about love is that it doesn’t have to be about falling in love for the first time. It’s falling in love every single day with your significant other. It’s a special birthday celebration. Or an anniversary. It’s a simple “thank you” and “I love you”.
  
Personally, each of these 24 destinations is on my bucket list before I die.  So far I've got three of them checked off already...21 more to go!

If you would like to check out one of these places but don’t know how it can be possible, give it a shot. It’s totally possible with a little help from your friends and family. So many weddings today are for older folks - people who have either waited to get married and they're now in their 30's, or it's a second marriage.  Individuals who are blending two existing households full of toasters, blenders, board games & towels.  So what kind of a gift to give those people who already have two of this, that, and everything else?  Why not travel?  Or simply components of travel, such as a shore excursion, a massage, a special meal, or a bottle of wine? There are so many possibilities.    At Cruise Planners, we offer a fun, innovative way to make it all possible, through our Travel Gift Registry.  





This Travel Registry works just like any other gift registry. So if you are thinking of a destination wedding and honeymoon we can handle it all.
