Planning Family and Fun Getaways For All

What started as a career in Location Film Crew, morphed into career as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps and FDNY Firefighter in NYC, and grew into planning trips for friends and family, finally ended with the founding of DOING DISNEY WITH MARK.  

Travelling to Disney Destinations for over 20 years, including a short stint as a Cast Member, gives me a unique insight into tips and tricks to making the most of your vacation. 

I started Doing Disney as a full service Disney and Travel Planning Service, from start to finish, We Do All The Work So You Have All The Fun!

My experience and knowledge for making your vacation memorable is not limited to Disney Destination. Traveling throughout U.S. Europe and More, from Maine to California, London to Rome, if you can travel there we can get you there.

I have traveled with my wife and Family, as a parent of 4 children one of whom is disabled and confined to a wheelchair adding a unique aspect to planning.

Another great trip, thanks to Mark.

Reviewed By Chuck Jankowski - Falls Church, VA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Once again, Mark put together a trip for us that blew away our expectations. Mark truly is an expert on all things Disney, so when I called him up and told him I was interested in running the Star Wars Half Marathon, he jumped right in. Mark was able to find us rooms at a great price, even during a busy marathon weekend, and knew all about the best ways to plan around the race...he even knew about the official runDisney half marathon training program.

Mark's mastery of Disney helped us have an amazing vacation. I ran all of our restaurant choices past him for his recommendations, and our dining arrangements were fantastic. Mark gave us some great advice for timing when it came to getting dinner at Ohana (ask him about the fireworks) and called and texted to make sure I jumped on the earliest opportunities to grab fast passes for Avatar Flights of Passage (do it!!).

I can't recommend Mark enough when it comes to planning your Disney vacation.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

The guidance we needed to make our trip great

Reviewed By cjankowski84 - Falls Church, VA | Traveled to
Our Disney vacation, which we planned and booked through Mark was fantastic. Mark had the expertise in all things Disney to help us have the best possible experience. Mark gave us great advice on which hotels and restaurants would suit our budget and our needs as a married couple, without kids. Mark used his expert knowledge to steer us towards a more "grown up" and sophisticated Disney experience, while still making sure we got the most "Disney Magic." From the very beginning, Mark made recommendations on Disney hotels, as though he had lived (not just stayed) in each and every one of them. He knew all about room size, resort layout, pool locations, and on-resort dining. For our restaurant recommendations, Mark really shined, using his own "Disney Magic" to score us reservations at Be our Guest, the Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, when it appeared to be completely booked. He came through for us in a last minute pinch, and managed to get our reservation changed to increase our party size at the Coral Reef restaurant in Epcot center, when we unexpectedly ran into some relatives while on our trip. Mark helped us plan our fast-pass usage like a tactician. He balanced out timing, location of the rides and crowd estimates to plan our day like a chess-master. We hit all of the big name rides, as well as all of the classic Disney rides, and rarely had to wait more than a few minutes on line. All in all we had a great experience, one which was enhanced by the skill and knowledge of Mark Ward. I can say with all honesty that we will utilize his services the next time we travel to Disney, and I can recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to plan a vacation.

Our awesome Disney vacation!

Reviewed By conn1138 - Merrick, NY | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I had been planning this vacation to Disney for several years and thought I had an adequate grasp of Disney, but Mark's knowledge far exceeded anything I ever knew! He guided us from the planning stages all the way to when we arrived home. Most travel professionals stop after you’ve left on your journey, but Mark continuously sent us reminders during our stay and helped plan our daily activities. His level of commitment and knowledge is incredible and I recommend anyone take advantage of his expertise.
