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 you buying a wrench and watching an online "how-to" video to fix it yourself. The answer is this: Travel advisors 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!
