I’m thrilled to have received this fabulous “shout out” from my client, Gwen Leron, on the Yummy Mummy Club site
This past August marked our first family visit to Walt Disney World. I visited a very long time ago (15 years ago to be exact!), but this time around was even more special because I got to see my children take in all of the magic for the very first time.
Going for the first time can be extremely overwhelming. You want to see, do, and, eat everything you have heard about, but unfortunately, it is pretty unlikely to do if you are a family travelling with young children.
Here are some tips to get you started when planning your first Disney family vacation:
Work With a Travel Advisor
Nowadays, being able to book vacations and do destination research over the internet makes booking travel on your own very tempting. But have you been to Disney 20 times? Do you know the ins and outs of all the different packages? Do you have a definite and 100% accurate answer to every single question you need to ask? The answer for you is most likely no. The answer for my travel advisor, Sheila Gallant-Halloran, is yes.
I became familiar with Sheila through Twitter and as soon as we made the decision to go on this trip, I got in touch with her. From the get-go, she provided valuable advice about things I had not even thought about and was always quick to answer any questions I had. She made our planning experience stress-free by taking care of:
- advising us about the different resorts
- providing information about the different vacation packages and add-ons
- booking our vacation package
- booking our flights
- making all of our dining reservations
- checking in with us the day before our trip to make sure we were all set
A good travel advisor will help you create the vacation you dream about. I will never book another vacation without Sheila!
