Walt Disney World® Resort
If you need to plan a trip I would definitely recommend Cathi Marcheskie. She went above and beyond planning our Disney vacation. She even helped me with tips for the plane trip which she did not have to do. Thanks to her I didn’t have to worry about anything and knew if I had a question she was right there to answer it. I wouldn’t go with anyone else ever again. She is a fantastic person with a heart of gold. Thank you so much Cathi! 🙂
The thought of going to Disney World and planning our own itinerary was complete overwhelming to me. It seems so much more complicated (with so many options! and things you have to do in advance!) So we immediately decided to use a concierge service like Glass Slipper.
We began our Disney vacation planning with another member of Glass Slipper and were very pleased with her thoughtful questions, recommendations, and help with our dinner reservations. However, she moved on to another opportunity in the midst of our planning, and Cathi stepped in. I appreciated how quickly Cathi got up to speed on our vacation and reached out to me to make sure she understood our expectations. Our itinerary was well-thought out and accommodated everything that we hoped for. We appreciated all of the tips and suggestions for each day and ideas for how to manage getting through each park both systematically, but also with great flexibility for in-the-moment decisions. What I most appreciated was Cathi’s accessibility while we were on our trip to answer quick in the moment issues or questions.
I would absolutely recommend Glass Slipper, and especially Cathi Marcheskie for future vacation planning.
Cathi has been nothing but fabulous from when were planning our Disney Honeymoon. She answered every question we came up with and even worked with us to save money from different promotions and not using the dining plan because of my recent surgery. Everything was tailored to our needs. We will be using Cathi for all our Disney and other travel needs.
Best Disney planner I could have asked for! We took our daughter to Disney for her 4th birthday and our vacation was flawless! The itinerary and hints were so helpful for someone who has never been to Disney before! We were able to see and do so many different things! The whole vacation was tailored to our needs and liking!! Thanks again Cathi!!
If you’re planning a trip to Disney, I would recommend Cathi Marcheskie Maziarz to help with your planning. Her expertise was invaluable to me since I haven’t been to Disney for almost 15 years and things have really changed! Managing dining reservations, fast passes and unexpected changes to our travel group, Cathi was amazing handling all the details and letting me focus on the fun. Thanks Cathi!!!
Cathi was the greatest in planning our visit to WDW! First time we ever used a trip planner…I’d text her many times and she would always reassure me everything was fine and that it was! Very easy to work with and always knew what I was trying to say! Thank you so much for making our visit so special!
New Security Requirements for U.S. Citizens Traveling To Europe
Full Schengen Member Countries
- Czech Republic
Beginning July 1, 2021, the rules will change for U.S. citizens traveling to 26 countries in the European Union. Visiting any of the Schengen-member countries for tourism, business, medical or transit will require approval from the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS)—which will be considered an additional check on security rather than a visa.
The new rules are intended to better address the challenges of screening for potential terrorists and to raise revenue for the EU.
The application and approval process
- The ETIAS application process will take place online and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
- Applicants will be asked to provide three types of information: 1) a valid passport (with an expiration date that is at least three months longer than the intended stay; 2) a credit or debit card, and 3) an email address.
- Application must take place at least 96 hours before travel.
- Applications need to be made for infants and children as well as adults.
- The cost will be 7 Euros per person, waived for those under the age of 18. Payment will need to be made online via credit or debit card.
- The application will be checked against a number of security databases as well as an ETIAS watchlist, and then will either be approved or denied by email. If an application is denied, an explanation will be provided (which can be appealed).
- ETIAS travel authorization will be valid for multiple entries over the course of three years.
- ETIAS approval will be checked electronically prior to boarding an aircraft, boat or bus, and again by a border agent upon entry into the Schengen zone.
