Annual passes to Disney World just received a substantial bump after the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios. Platinum Plus passes will now be $225 more expensive at $1,219, while Disney Platinum passes will now cost $1,119.

In the past, it would take the agency from four to six weeks to process a passport application, so planning to travel outside the U.S. wasn't much of a headache. However, the processing time has changed and could potentially damage many summer vacation plans. Due to a lack of staff, the process of applying for or renewing a passport now take eight weeks, which means travelers need to run if planning to travel abroad this summer. There's a more expensive option for those who have a tight schedule: paying an additional $60 for a fast reviewing process that can last up to three weeks.

Although First Class is mostly gone, there are still ways to fly with class, and now there are even affordable options to do so. Emirates is introducing the world's first 'Basic Business Class,' to fly with amenities and yet keeping it within budget. The special fare involves a few perks and a few things that could become an issue, depending on the traveler's expectations. People will be able to enjoy all the services that come with business class while in-flight but won't get to enjoy the on-ground benefits such as using the chauffeur service, going through expedited security or accessing the lounge. Passengers that get this fare will not be able to upgrade to first class or select their seat.

We've all been told to keep our seatbelts fastened while we're in the air because turbulence can hit at any moment, but unfortunately, the passengers on this flight had to learn their lesson the hard way. Passengers on an ALK Airlines flight between Kosovo and Switzerland hit unexpected turbulence 30 minutes into their journey; the turbulence was so strong that it made the overhead compartments pop open and dump all the luggage onto the passengers' heads, and it even made one of the flight attendants hit the roof of the aircraft. Ambulances were waiting for the plane as soon as it landed to offer medical attention, and overall, ten people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The main reason why people checked in for work was to put out fires, while one of the main reasons for stress during vacation was the notion that there was a vast amount of work waiting for them back home.
