#FT4RL Comes to Orlando! Tickets Now on Sale for Number 4


I’m happy to let you know that the 4th Family Travel for Real Life (FT4RL) will be in Orlando, FL on April 23rd! Get your tickets here.

FT4RL will be held at the Hyatt Place Orlando Airport– a category 1 (woo hoo). It so happens that I have at least two friends have tested it recently so the site visit hurdle was easy to jump. We have a group rate of $129/night using code G-FTRL at


Confirmed Speakers:

Coming out of retirement! Milenomics author Sam Simon on Be Your Own Elite : Go where you want, when you want spending as little as possible to do so. 

Miles to Memories author Shawn Coomer on Beyond New York, London and Hawaii: Distinctive Family Destinations

Travel Hacking 101 Community leader Rich Kerr on Hacking Trips on the Ground: Cruises, Trains, Cars, Camels…

Saverocity Observation Deck Podcast  host, As the Joe Flies author and Dad of 2 Joe Cheung on Miles and Points Earning and Burning Strategies for Growing Families: how do we continue to keep travel a priority for our families as they grow and evolve? Is it even worth it? If so, what are the best ways to tackle traveling with more people for less, and how do we maximize the number of miles we earn given our limited time? And how do we make sure we can use those miles during peak periods like school vacations and the summer? Tune in as we discuss strategies for all this and more!

Disney expert and all around hacker extraordinaire Haley Bach is coming back to share more Disney hacks! Anyone who attended FT4RL 3 can tell you that we were blown away by the sheer volume of Disney knowledge Haley had to share- and, well, Orlando.

I know in sales you’re supposed to create a sense of urgency, but here I think one might be warranted. Early bird tickets sold out in a day. The room capacity is what it is so I won’t be able to add tickets after sellout like I was able to with #3. While I can’t offer refunds, four people needed to back out of #3 (with 30 days notice) and I was able to resell their tickets within a day to get them their money back.

I can’t wait to see you all again for what I’m sure will be a heck of a party in Orlando! Alumni know we plan lots of activities and the timing is perfect for Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival– which is not to be missed.

If you have any questions- fire away. Also, if you’ve been to an FT4RL, please share your thoughts so newbies have an idea what to expect.

    FT4RL3 was my first travel meeting. I didn’t know what to expect and was scared I was too much of a noob to get much from it. Believe me, it was WELL worth the price of admission! I learned something from every speaker and can’t wait to see everyone again at #FT4RL 4. There’s something for everyone at these meetings!

      That’s great to know. We are often in that area and it’s nice to have a specific recommendation. Bummer it didn’t work out for the meeting to be at the super nice Hyatt Place, but I’m sure that the content will be so interesting no one will care.

        Hi Jamie,
        I’ve actually heard really good things about our hotel from two others who have stayed there recently.
