Resort Time!

May 27, 2014

As we all get back to work after the long Memorial Day weekend and are sitting back at our respective jobs, the draw of vacation is definitely strong, and growing. Summertime and travel time almost go hand in hand — colleges are closed, elementary through high schools are closed, and pretty much anything associated with schools and/or academics is slowing down or already done. The weather is warm, vacation time has to used, and it is fun to travel, take vacation, and enjoy some R&R.

This is all common sense and well-known, and we have discussed some ways to make your vacations fun and budget friendly. Today, however, let’s look at a few of the ways that you can capitalize on this seasonal trend. People go on vacation, and the more people who go to a certain vacation location, the more money that specific vacation resort makes. Fortunately, almost all of the largest and best-known vacation resorts are either publicly traded or owned by a publicly traded company.

Let’s take a look at one in particular.

Disney has been in the news frequently over the last few months with the success of “Frozen,” as well as the success of the “Avengers,” which Disney studios produced. With this backdrop, as well as the acquisition of Lucas Studios (which includes the Star Wars franchise), it makes sense to have Disney on the brain. It is important to remember, however, that Disney owns two of the most well-known, frequently visited, and popular tourist resorts in the world – DisneyWorld and DisneyLand.

Something to keep in mind as the weather and travel season heat up.

Happy Reading!
