Slowly but surely, things are changing. Vaccines are available across the country, people seem to be more comfortable with traveling again, and Disneyland Resort is about to reopen.
And, testing the “returning to normalcy” theory a little further, there’s been a MAJOR increase in Disney World travel Google searches in recent weeks.
Now we know why. According to Marketplace, “Americans cannot wait to get the heck out of their homes and go on vacation!” And where are they eager to vacay? Disney World, of course.
Apparently, searches for domestic flights are up a steep 60% in the last month alone, according to booking site Hopper. Of all those flight searches, it seems a LOT of them are craving Disney World, because Google searches for “plan a trip to Disney World” is up a whopping 2,600% between March and April.
Disney execs have been talking about “pent up demand,” and now we’re really starting to see the proof.
Disney+ is great and all, but after a year of quarantine, it seems Disney fans are ready to see the real thing.
Now what does this mean for you? With such a boom in Google searches for Disney World, coupled with the ongoing rush on park passes, this is all a reminder that it’s more important than EVER to plan as far ahead as possible for your next Disney trip.
