Planning to visit from Monday - Thursday. Staying in Island Park, ID (30 min from West entrance). With 4 kids age 7-12.

Monday - Geysers  How to do this? Which ones? Is a full day too much? 
Tuesday - "Grand Canyon" & Hayden Valley
Wednesday - Which would you recommend????  (Mammoth, West Thumb/Yellowstone Lake, Lamar Valley)
Thursday - Grand Teton What to do here? Jenny Lake hike?(planning on driving halfway to Vegas after)

Besides for sightseeing, what activities would you recommend?
Uncle Tom's Trail
Fairy Falls Trail
Rafting or boating
Anything else??

Please share any thoughts.
Thanks!!
I found those routes helpful https://www.earthtrekkers.com/one-day-in-yellowstone-itinerary/

If anyone's going to Grand Teton and can do me a small favor, please PM. Much appreciated.
time sensitive? I'm planning to go in August

I booked a mixed cabin award flight. With the EWR-DEN flight in economy and DEN-JAC in Business...

I called and they put me on waitlist.
1) should I rely that i will be confirmed in business?
2) if it doesn't open, can I get a refund later, on the business award price?

I renewed my daughter's passport today. I was told that the (State department's) passport processing offices are closed. I should not expect the passport before 10 weeks.
Passport arrived yesterday BH

Hi,

Have same dilemma, my son's passport is first expiring in Dec. Hope to travel soon to Europe (mother is a european so should work even if child only US passport).

Passport isn't expired, but its within the 6 months. is this rule really enforced?
First reach out to the embassy where your mother lives to grant you a permit - (it is not so easy to obtain, you might have to say that your mother is old and sick etc. My family is also from Europe and several family members were denied exceptions to enter. They are racist's against USA citizens...)

then see if you can also get an approval for your son.

Regarding close to expiration passport IDK, I would assume if it's a minor traveling with parents it's likely to be allowed, but that's my assumption. Take along a copy of his birth certificate for a better chance.

Are they up to phase 3 yet?
no, but if you have a ticket for within 36 hours it usually works. My brother (who lives in Israel, and wanted to get back home after having a baby a couple of weeks ago) made it last Friday, waited 5 hours and walked out with the passport.

I renewed my daughter's passport on may 6 and it's still processing.

Idea is applying now is a big unknown when you will get passport, and you lose your chance to apply with expedited process once (if?) they open it
expedited passport is available now in Manhattan same day if you have a ticket within 36 hours.

Not sure which adventure parks you are referring to. But I've done similar road trips in the past, and i agree with @Traveler718 that you need more time. I would probably stick to Yellowstone and Grand Teton, there is enough there to keep you busy for a week.
I am planning to be in Park City for 3 days. JAC/Grand Teton for 6 days. Not enough?

10
Due to being concerned of closures or personal safety?
Closures or extreme limiting of attractions.

I am planning to go with my 3 kids and a big part of my itinerary is the adventure parks.

I am planning on going to Yellowstone this summer and have a few questions. Tentatively I am planning Sun morning thru Thu afternoon.

1) Are there any shabbos options anywhere in the vicinity? (traveler718 commented about a Chabad that is currently closed).

2) It doesn't seem that I would be able to make it back on time for shabbos leaving any later than Thursday afternoon. Any Ideas?

3) I was considering flying into FCA and spending Sunday and Monday at Glacier and the heading to yellowstone Mon evening and spending Tue Wed in yellowstone and Flying back Thu from JAC (maybe stop in Teton on Thursday). Am I trying to do too much? Should I just do Yellowstone? I'm not the type that needs to see every sight in the parks.
Chabad of Jackson is not closed, but you need to subscribe as he will be operating very limited. Also, from August 9'th it will be closed.

I am also planning a trip, landing in SLC, staying in park city for 3 days, then driving to JAC staying for a few days and flying out of JAC.

With the rising numbers of Covid in Utah and WY my trip is on standby.

I am planning to stay for a Shabbos in Jackson hole. Is the Chabad house operating in the summer with Minyonim?

Before you go on a long flight, freeze a JJ cappuccino.  If it's frozen they let it on the plane. Once you get up from your nap on the plane there is nothing as refreshing as an iced cappuccino. It should still be freezing but not frozen.

Thank me later
From my experience,  they don't take away any box drinks - even liquid - since it shows up on their screen as neatly packed food wrapped in silver foil (shhhh...).

Freezing liquid always works, not only on box drinks. It can be a small bottle milk or anything.

Anyone received a new passport recently?
