National Plan For A Vacation Day!

The last Tuesday of January is National Plan for a Vacation Day. It comes at a perfect time – the holidays are over, the weather is miserable, and there are no school breaks to look forward to for a while.

Having a vacation planned gives families something to look forward to together. When we have a Disney trip planned, we do family movie nights each weekend. One night, we make diner together and watch a different Disney Movie. If I am feeling really crafty, I will plan the dinner around the movie – Spaghetti & meatballs with Lady & The Tramp, Hawaiian Chicken with Moana, Pizza with Toy Story, Beef & Broccoli with Mulan…etc. Even as my littles are not so little anymore, this is something we all look forward to through the week and gets us talking about or exciting trip ahead.

Planning ahead also has a lot of benefits – you can spread out payments over several months and have longer to save for all the fun treats & souvenirs. You can take advantage of promotions as they come along as long as there is availability. You also have a better chance of getting the resort/ship & room category you prefer before they sell out. Let’s not forget the 180-day advanced dining reservations that are so coveted. Planning ahead gives you all of these advantages and more!

Which Disney Destination will you visit in 2020? Maybe it is time to try something new?! If you cruise often but haven’t checked out a Disney Cruise, it is time you see why they win all the awards that they do year after year. If you visit Disney World each year, step out of the box! Visit the west coast and see Disneyland or try a Disney Cruise. Looking to travel abroad to where your ancestors are from? Adventures by Disney has amazing options all around the globe that will have you experiencing other countries like you never thought you could.

Contact me today so we can “Plan For A Vacation”! My planning services are free of charge and I can assist you with stress-free preparations for a Magical Trip. Let’s get you something to be excited about in 2020!

We’re Going Live!

In 2020, I am going to be doing monthly updates via Facebook Live. I am aiming for the second Sunday of every month but that may change in the case of a holiday (or a research-based Disney Trip). I would love for you to join me.

I will gather the information I learn directly from Disney each month and then hop on Facebook Live to share it all, answer questions, and explain anything that may need an explanation. It is a great way for you to keep up on updates, closures, refurbishments, discounts, and more.

October Giveaway!!

Happy Fall, Y’all!!

Gone are the days of swimming pools & BBQ’s.  Bring on all the pumpkin, trick or treating, crisp air & bonfires.  As 2019 winds down, I have set a business challenge for myself for October and I need your help! My goal is 13 new reservations in October (spooky month, spooky number!). 

This is where you come in!  Any Disney or Universal package booked in the Month of October will receive an entry into a drawing for a $50 gift card for Disney or Universal! Travel can be anytime between now and the end of 2020.   Disney Packages require 3 night stay and 3 day park tickets.  Universal Packages require 2 night stay and 2 day park-to-park tickets.  Any Disney Cruise, Adventure by Disney, and Aulani: A Disney Resort & Spa Package count.  If this package is booked for a check in date in 2019, you will receive 2 entries! Perfect time to book a holiday reservation and see Disney decorated for Christmas or book a Very Merrytime Cruise!

Each day I will post on Facebook a countdown of my favorite hints and tips for Walt Disney World and Universal Studios so be sure to follow me at https://www.facebook.com/wdwdreamsintomemories/. These hints and tips will give you a great idea of all the knowledge I share with my guests when I am assisting with their vacation planning.

Already reserved or not planning on traveling in the contest time frame? You can still help me AND win a contest of your own! If you have traveled with me before you know that I get all my clients through referrals from satisfied guests.  You know that I put everything I have into each guest’s reservation and that my level of service is unprecedented.  These referrals are how I can continue to help more families and do what I absolutely love to do.  Anyone who refers a guest during the month of October will receive an entry into a drawing for a Starbucks Gift Card (or Amazon for those of you who don’t need coffee to survive). There is NO limit to how many entries you can get – if you refer 3 guests, you will receive 3 entries. 

BONUS: If I reach my goal of 13 reservations in October, I will do an additional swag giveaway.  Both the referrers and the travelers will receive one entry and the winner will get the choice of a Disney or Universal gift.  Gift Cards will go out after final payment is made for guest’s trip.  If bonus is met, swag giveaway will go out as soon as drawing is completed.

(Previous Reservations do not qualify. I’m sorry, I appreciate you, but this is about 13 in October)

Don’t forget about our Minnie Box! Qualifying reservations will receive this gift from the “Disney Earmarked Agency” I work for! It is full of magic & surprises. It arrives just prior to your departure and will get your family even more excited about their trip!

THANK YOU for all your support.  I look forward to helping turn more dreams into memories in October and for years to come!

Giving a Disney Destination as a Gift for the Holidays

There are so many ways to gift a Disney Destination for the Holidays. A very simple way is just to have an invitation sent to your loved ones from their favorite Disney Character – you can go crazy with all different types of fun stationary and stickers or you can keep it simple. There are many different types of stationary that can be printed out on or you can just use plain paper and decorate on your own. Have fun with it! Let them know that their favorite character can’t wait to see them on such-and-such a date and it will be a magical time. Enjoy!
