Ease for the Overwhelmed

Reviewed By Ellie - Centreville, VA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
For our first family trip to Disney World (and my personally first trip ever), we put our trust in Lissa for planning and I'm so glad we did. I was overwhelmed by all the things that were "supposed" to be figured out months in advance and was worried I would do the wrong thing and mess our trip up and/or miss on obvious things and regret it. There was a number of items that had deadlines and she would gently remind us what they were (with descriptions) and when. She booked our flights, our Disney resort accommodations, our dining reservations (I didn't know what to choose!), and reminded us of our FastPass deadline (and we were given info on what rides tended to busier so that really helped us choose). She was accessible, prompt, patient, and helpful. I feel so good about the ease of our Disney experience (last week) and I definitely thank her for it!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Lissa Ryan responded:
Thank you! I love being able to make Disney World planning less overwhelming for first timers. I'm glad the trip went smoothly and it was my pleasure to assist.

Best Travel Agent EVER!

Reviewed By Laura M - Fairfax, Virginia | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I started working with Lissa after winning a raffle at a Star Wars Event at Rust Library. I had never worked with a travel agent before, so I was excited about the prospect. Lissa is always very prompt with emails and updates! This was super important since I've had to reschedule my trip not once, but twice during the Covid-19 Pandemic. I don't know what I would have done without her during this crazy time! I am so excited out my trip which *crosses fingers* will happen next March. I highly recommend Lissa, she is the absolute best! Kind, caring, and fun!

The most happiest and safest getaway in 2020

Lissa was amazingly patient while we continuously had to reschedule our Walt Disney World trip due to Covid-19. She was diligent with keeping us up to date with the latest news regarding WDW and how Covid-19 was effecting resort(s) and park(s) operations. We decided to take our trip during what we felt, as a family, was the safest time to go. Lissa was there for us every step of the way.

Lissa was always prompt with returning our phone calls and emails. Never hesitated to answer our tough questions and most of all stuck with us through the many weigh ins on when and how to make our trip safe.

Lissa's experience and knowledge was extremely helpful, her consumer service and guidance was above and beyond.

We are so thankful for her help and we highly recommend her to assist you with your travel needs.

Fast, thoroughly comprehensive, and easy service!

I was busy with the details of our other travel plans and was running out of time. I called Lissa and we talked briefly about what we wanted and after some research she called back in less than 15 min with a great 3 day/3park package and hotel at Universal. I would have kept checking for better deals and taken forever to decide. It was nice to turn it over to her, just say book it, and have it done in 20 min a week out from our trip so I could focus on other things. The trip was great, without any hitches, and we had an amazing room at the Aventura Hotel she booked us on Universal's property and loved the new Volcano Bay waterpark and geeking out in Harry Potter World. Thanks so much for your fast, thoroughly comprehensive, and easy service!

She was more than helpful!

Took our first trip to Disney with my family last week, and it was seamless thanks to Lissa! She was more than helpful throughout the entire process, always responded quickly to any emails, and way WAY above and beyond when our trip had to be rescheduled very last minute because of the hurricane. Disney planning is very overwhelming, and she made it that much easier for us. Thanks, Lissa!
