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!

My Travel Stories

Walt Disney World in the COVID19 Universe-Part III

When using the restrooms, go to the far end of the bank of toilet stalls if you have that option. Most people go for the stall that's closest to the door so those are the stalls that are used most often. Instead, walk just a few steps more to find a stall towards the back that isn't used as often....Read more.

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!

Trip of a lifetime
Very thorough. Our trip was seamless! We added 2 days in Vancouver prior to our cruise. Laurie orchestrated a terrific day trip to Victoria. In addition, our hotel was exemplary! We added extra time in Anchorage prior to flying home- Laurie again organized a great hotel and rental car. She willingly helped with solidifying day trips throughout our cruise and land tour. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We will definitely will use Laurie and Travel Leaders to plan our 50th wedding anniversary trip in 2020 to Europe!

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.
