This year has provided time to reinvent how to stay connected while following new norms, like facetiming family and friends, visiting places across the globe via live streams, and lots of videoconferencing. (Zoom, anyone?) We may seem as virtually connected as before, but the new norm has forced great compromise. The biggest change was packing away our travel bags. After months of cozying up with our favorite throw and catching up on all streaming shows, travel is finally making a comeback.
The fun you had on your last family vacation is waiting for you. That palpable energy found in a new city is ready to reignite your passion for life. Beauty so moving it touches your heart is out there in nature and at national monuments. The fresh outdoor air yearns for your screams of joy as you conquer new roller coasters at Orlando’s theme parks. Our appetite also deserves a change of course. Orlando’s chefs are ready to prepare delightful cuisine that will send the senses on its own worldly journey. It is all waiting for you and your family.
When the Time is Right
Your wanderlust may be triggered but concerns for safety may also be holding you back. Rightfully so. Mindful travelers have a few new rules to follow and some new things to pack, which will be covered throughout this blog. Different cities have new expectations of its tourist and visitors. Here in Orlando, Florida, tourists have a lot of freedom and do not need to quarantine upon arrival. Many places in Orlando expect travelers to wear masks.
At Rosen Shingle Creek, guests are required to wear a mask whenever in public places around the hotel. Temperature screenings are also mandatory. At the front desk, clear plexiglass has been installed to provide extra protection when welcoming guests or answering questions. We’ve placed hand sanitizer dispensers in more convenient locations around the hotel. We have always kept a pristine and clean hotel. Regardless, to help keep our guests safe, we clean common areas and high touchpoints more often with hospital-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant. Rest assured with extra precautions in your guestroom as well. Prior to your arrival, your guestroom is disinfected with a special electrostatic cleaner to get into and onto all surfaces. Our dining experience has become more hands off—reading menus and making payments are possible through your smartphone.
