Destinations in Florida Testimonials

#1 I just want to say thank you!  We had a really good time.  We could not have done it without your guidance.  The personal touches for free amazed me.  Everytime we got an email from you, we got more and more excited with the coloring sheets, Hidden Mickey hunts, and even scavenger hunts.  The extra magic you provided was incredible.  Thanks!  

#2 I just wanted to THANK YOU for the great Disney vacation that you arranged for my family. You take all of the hassle out of planning a vacation, from suggesting a great hotel (Disney Yacht Club), getting our park tickets, making dinner and show reservations, and even arraigning for tickets and transportation to Universal Studios. I know from experience that having you book my vacation is so much easier than doing it myself and you always look for the best deals to save me money. You have a customer for life and I will continue to recommend you to my friends.


Overall, remember to always contact an authorized Disney vacation planner for any questions you may have regarding your trip.
