Stress Free and Perfect

Reviewed By Christine - Coventry, RI | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I consider myself pretty 'seasoned' when it comes to Disney, but April is the BEST. My son had been accepted into the Disney College Program so we decided to make a family trip to get him settled and enjoy the parks. She was amazing coordinating everything. It was an emotional trip as you can imagine, but what made it more so was I had just lost my mother a few days before our departure. I can't thank April enough for making our trip perfect and stress free! ~xo

Invaluable Assistance

Reviewed By KarenMea - Titusville, FL | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
April was an asset in helping me plan my family’s vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. He knowledge of the ticketing system for the park enabled us to make make the best use of our time and ride the most rides during our time on the parks. She also arranged our stay at one of the Disney resorts. We might not have gotten a desert there without her.

Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By CatieB - West Bridgewater, MA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
April was amazing. I never could have planned my family’s trip on my own. With just a scant two months notice, she created a vacation that was personalized, hit all of our must dos and made amazing memories. I am forever grateful to her for helping my family have a Disney experience we will never forget.

ZERO stress Disney Planning

I have called April for last minute trips, while in the parks with questions, for itinerary changes, and she NEVER even sighs. I have met her several times in parks just for a quick hello, how are you doing.

Disney Trip/Universal Studios

Reviewed By Erica - Dracut, MA | Traveled to Universal Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
April was so detail oriented and made herself available around the clock. We used Coasters and Castles both times we went to Disney and April’s highlighted itinerary kept us on track and not waiting around. She was a pleasure to work with and I would only use April for all things Disney/Universal Studios. There isn’t anything she couldn’t speak on!

"Kara was great to work with planning a large multi family vacation. She provided excellent tips and info. She made sure our travel was seamless. Our rooms were all beside each other as well. She provided a nice touch with lanyards for all 17 of us. That saved us $$$ because we would have purchased them as they were a necessity! We will definitely work with Kara again!"
