Similar to the NCAA event, the groups included a mixture of getaways—perennial powerhouses, hometown favorites, and scrappy underdogs. With the picks full, it was time to start out the showdown.
The outcomes of our preliminary rounds have been a number of enjoyable to look at. Not surprisingly, some big-name groups like Walt Disney World Resort dominated proper out of the gate. (Sorry, Hersheypark, however we nonetheless love you!) Different groups went down surprisingly simply. Riviera Maya, Mexico is one in every of our company’s hottest trip locations, however earned solely 28% of the votes in its matchup towards Maui, Hawaii. A couple of contests went proper right down to the buzzer, together with a nail-biter between the Galapagos Islands and New Zealand that busted a number of of our staff members’ brackets.
Because the rounds continued, the alternatives acquired harder. This was very true as soon as the division winners began going through off as our remaining 4 holidays. Similar to precise journey planning, it grew to become trickier to decide on between fully completely different trip types and experiences. (That’s why each staff wants an MVP—Most Worthwhile Planner!)
After dominating within the preliminary rounds, Walt Disney World was soundly defeated by African Safari. The matchup between European River Cruise and Maui was a lot nearer, however Maui scored simply sufficient votes to earn the second spot in our championship contest. Whereas it wasn’t a blowout, Maui was the clear winner in our remaining spherical of voting and was topped our Time to Journey Event Champion.

Hawaii additionally presents guests an unique trip expertise with out the challenges of unfamiliar language, foreign money, or driving legal guidelines—and no passport required!
