BASKING RIDGE, NJ - In the midst of a global pandemic, travel may not be the first item on your mind. However, Michelle Allen, owner of Travel Magic based in Basking Ridge, encourages travelers to start booking their future trips.
Travel Magic has been in business for 15 years, Allen purchased the business in January 2017 after spending three years as an Advisor and two years as the Office Manager for Travel Magic. “My love of travel is what drives me to create memorable vacations for other families,” says Allen, who is also a Member of Disney’s Earmarked Gold Team, is on Wendy Perrin’s WOW List 2020, a Conde Nast 2020 Top Travel Specialist, and she also gained the Chairman’s Sales Achievement Award Sandals & Beaches Resorts 2019. Her company, Travel Magic, specializes in all Disney Destinations; Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise line, Adventures by Disney and Aulani (Disney Resort on Oahu) and Universal Studios (home of Harry Potter World). They also specialize in Beaches and Sandals All inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean. “Whether you are looking for a detailed Disney World vacation, a relaxing Disney Cruise or beautiful Aulani, a group guided tour with Adventures by Disney or a relaxing vacation in the Caribbean we are here to manage all the details of your vacation so you can just relax and have fun,” said Allen.
“Covid-19 restrictions and quarantine issues have made people fearful of travel, I get it, but we can help with future travel plans for when this turns around. In fact, we can book packages for folks going to Disney World through September 26, 2021 and many of the Caribbean islands are opening soon if not already,” explained Allen. “I absolutely think that for at least the next year the “magic” of Disney and air travel will look different. But, I believe that it will turn around at some point, and the world will once again be open for travel to everyone. Before traveling, I always recommend clients review the Florida quarantine information and their home state guidelines as well,” explained Allen.
