Disney Destinations

"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer" ~ This is a philosophy that I firmly believe in and have found to be true since I started in this industry in 1993. Asking a travel agent why you should have them book your vacation versus booking it yourself online is like asking a plumber why you should have them repair your leaky sink instead of buying a wrench and watching an online "how-to" video. The answer is this: Travel professionals have spent years training to do what we do!

Attention to detail
Laurie has had attention to every detail of our traveling, things that I never would have thought of Laurie has covered!! She has helped us before, during and after our vacations. We have had experiences we have contacted her for while traveling such as illness that she was able to make phone calls on the home front taking the worry out of details for us. After working with her over the past few years, she knows what things we like to do and puts together travel plans for us that we would not think of!
Thanks Laurie for your professional and fun planning!

Disney Magic!
Laurie was VERY knowledgeable about our Disney World trip. Our first meeting with her we were clueless but laid out what we wanted and she did the work with finding us a great resort and setting up transportation. She explained the park options and explained the dining plans so we could pick what best fit our needs/wants. Also gave us alot of suggestions and explained fast passes and dinner reservations. Something we knew nothing about. We took it upon ourselves to book fast passes and then I had asked Laurie to look them over and she gave suggestions on that. We met with her a couple of times to ease our worries and took it step by step with the planning. We had 10 people on the trip 4 flying from a different state and that was no hassle at all. She was quick to respond to emails. Overall very pleased with the service and knowledge we recieved. I plan to head to Disney World again with my family of four, and I would definitely use Laurie again to do the arrangements.
