My first ever trip to Disney World was when I was 10. It was certainly magical, and we loved every second. But then, when I was 16 or so, we took another trip to “the World”, but this time, we used a travel agent. We slowly realized how much we had missed out on by trying to plan the vacation ourselves! From insider tips, better ticket deals, and exclusive Disney World knowledge, we just really got so much more out of our second trip by using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner!
The best part? Their services are FREE. Free!
Now, my husband and I go to WDW pretty much every year, and we ALWAYS use a Disney Vacation Planner. Because, after all, a vacation should be just that — a vacation. When we use Tim and Audie Lawley of Mouse Ear Vacations, we don’t have to worry about a thing. We tell them when we want to go, and they pretty much take care of the rest. Even though we are seasoned Disney World visitors, they clue us in about new features, deals, and take care of all of the “dirty work” like making reservations and booking rooms. All the loose ends are tied up neatly, like how we are getting from the airport to our resort, and what kind of park tickets we will need. It’s really reassuring to know that they take care of the details for us, so all we have to do is have fun!
Meet the Disney Gurus
Tim and Audie Lawley have been travelling with their friends and family for years and years, and they have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to vacations! As parents and grandparents, they know what your kids will want to do when they visit Mickey and Minnie. But they also travel as a couple, and can design a luxurious couples trip that will knock your socks off! With designated “kid-free” zones of the ship, it’s easy to enjoy the mouse with no kids in the house :). This photo was taken while they cruised to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder in August of 2011. They’ve also cruised through Europe aboard Disney Cruise line. Looking for something more tropical? Disney has amazing cruises to the Caribbean, all of which stop at their private island, Castaway Cay.
My parents have cruised to both Alaska and the Caribbean with the Lawleys, and they always come back with new stories, experiences, and GORGEOUS photos of the white sandy beaches and crystal clear water! When Andrew and I took our kids (then just Emma and Micah), people often said, “They’re too young, they wont remember.”
Maybe not, but man, we had fun while we were there! The best part? Micah and Emma were both under 2 years of age, so they were totally free. No park tickets needed! Emma was 2.5 when we went, and she remembers eating breakfast with Belle and all of the other princesses.
