Mandy has been beyond amazing! She made booking our first (and second) Disney Cruise the very best experience. She helped every step of the way, gave perfect recommendations and never tired of my questions! She helped put us at ease every time I reached out. She had great suggestions and ideas!! I would highly recommend her and Small World Vacations to anyone looking to book a vacation!!
Heather from Tennessee

I just wanted to take a moment to recognize Jodie Ball/Small World Vacations, for her outstanding customer relations and service in making a dream vacation with four generations of our family possible. I initially contacted Jodie over a year in advance to select and coordinate our “6 Day Western Caribbean Disney Cruise.” She was prompt, informative and helpful every step of the way. She responded to all inquiries in a timely manner and offered an abundance of insightful information. Working with Jodie was always pleasurable and easy. I’ll be looking forward to working with her in the future – in the event we begin planning another family Disney Vacation.
Randy from Colorado

Hi Wendy!  My family and I just returned from our Disney vacation and it was everything we hoped for and more.  I wanted to thank you for all your help in making the bookings, getting us the best deals and the room we really wanted.  You went above and beyond and it was much appreciated. We hope to go back soon and I will definitely contact you when we decide to go!
Sheila from Canada

Jenny was so perfect in representing Small World Vacations, and helping me, I asked to whom I could send my laudatory comments. She is knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and most helpful. The greatest compliment I can give her and Small World Vacations, is I will look for opportunities to recommend Jenny whenever someone mentions they are considering a Disney or Universal Studios vacation. Keep up the good work.

Popping in here to say how much we appreciate Marion. We, recently, had a rather complicated cruise reservation and she worked so diligently to try to get it resolved, and guide us through the mess we created for ourselves. She went above and beyond, dedicating so much of her time to getting it worked out for us and we are so grateful! Marion provided valuable advice and if she didn’t know the answer, so dug her heels in to find it! It’s this kind of personal attention and dedication to clients that puts Marion, and Small World Vacations, above the rest. Just wanted to let you know you’ve got a special lady, there. We couldn’t have done it without her.
Rebecca from Illinois

We recently completed our 2nd Disney vacation booked through Karen Nunn and Small Word Vacations. I wanted to let you know how wonderful Karen has been. She is extremely knowledgeable and her advice on Disney vacations has been spot on. We would recommend her highly to anyone booking a Disney vacation. Thanks for connecting us with her!
Jordan from Indiana

We had the pleasure of working with Wendy from Small World Vacations for planning our Disney World vacation. We have been to Disney a number of times and would usually plan the trips ourselves. This year we took a chance on Small World Vacations and it was beyond our expectations. Wendy was very sweet, helpful, and quick to respond to any questions/requests with very detailed answers. We will be using Small World and Wendy for all of our future Disney trips as well as any other trips they can provide assistance with. I will continue to recommend them to anyone I come in contact with that mentions a trip that they are able to assist in booking and planning.
Daniel from Virginia

Our Small World Vacations agent, Rachel was simply magnificent. She was more knowledgeable than many Disney cast members and helped us far beyond anything we would have anticipated for the services we purchased through Small World Vacations. There is no question that we will contact Rachel for any future Disney trips we make.
Jeff from Tennessee

Hello Small World Vacations!  I wanted to reach out to provide feedback on your agent, Tanya Uythoven. Tanya has been our Small World Vacations agent since 2021 and I must say- she is dedicated to her customers and to Disney ! Tanya took time to walk us through all of the tips and tricks for Disney when we first utilized Small World in 2021. The recent requests I had for her were very last minute (one week and one day before the trip) and she was quick to provide a quote – and even logged into work after hours to assist us twice!   We appreciate her so much!
Jessica from Colorado

I’ve been using Meredith at Small World Vacations since 2019/2020. She’s booked many vacations for my family. She is fantastic and simply the best. I recommend her to everyone. She is an asset to Small World Vacations. I know she will be able to deliver results anytime I contact her.
Kevin from NY

Heather at Small World Vacations was just so great. As a first time cruiser, having someone to answer our questions and make the bookings was invaluable. We had a fantastic time on our cruise and definitely aiming to go again. Heather was prompt in her replies and always communicated well. Thank you!!
Lianne from Australia

I wanted to let you know how much my sister and I enjoyed our Disney World trip. We credit it with the guidance we received from Small World Vacations agent, Brandi. From the beginning she answered all of our questions and granted all of our requests including a fabulous view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks and a luxurious bath tub! I’m so glad we found her and Small World Vacations. Thank you.
Diane from Oregon

Kristina with Small World is great. She has helped our family for over 6 years. Always cheerful, she could brighten your day just speaking with her. We recommend Kristina.
Linda from Michigan

My family can’t say enough good things about Jill. She has helped our vacation planning go so smoothly. We really appreciate her especially right now. I’m sure she’s overwhelmed with things constantly changing right now. She always answers emails extremely quick, even on the weekends. Truly appreciate all of her help.
Rachel from Ohio

We’ve booked two trips through Small World Vacations and are considering a third. Lori Bandera is very professional and seems to have answers to all my questions! I am confident I’m being well taken care of.
Nancy from Wisconsin

Cheryl was an amazing resource! It had been seven years since our last trip to WDW. A lot had changed. Cheryl made planning the trip FUN! Great suggestions, recommendations, and ideas. She helped us get a room upgrade and still managed to save us money in the process. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Gary from Indiana

Karen Nunn has worked so hard for our vacations. She is amazing and I couldn’t recommend her enough! Thank you Miss Karen!
Brad from Wisconsin

Big shout out to Rachel!!! She’s been with us for over a year now, helping us plan our trip! She’s kept in touch with us, kept us up to date on the latest news and offers, and always has time to answer a question or two.
Lori from Oklahoma

Our week at Disney World was truly magical, and despite the pandemic, perfectly seamless, in large part due to Lisa Felix at Small World Vacations. So glad we worked with her.
David from New York

Just booked for the Christmas holiday with Tracy. She has been extremely prompt answering my many questions. I can’t wait to see what tips and hints she can share for this once in a lifetime trip. I mean waking up at the most magical place on earth on Christmas morning!?!
Chelli from Arizona

I have worked with Marion now for 2 cruises-she has been the best. She has gone above and beyond-and beyond meaning pre-covid and rebooking everything. Such a joy, exudes the “Disney standard” that we so love. Has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Plan on using her for all my travel needs. Thanks Marion!!
Carla from North Carolina

Minnie has been great in helping our family of 13 organize a week long Disney cruise over Thanksgiving. She’s been responsive and fast! Thanks, Minnie!
Julia from Minnesota

I just wanted to thank Michelle, she has been awesome and just managed to save me a lot of money by applying a recently released promotion to my trip. She is always available, knowledgeable and super professional. I would recommend Small World Vacations and Michelle to all interested in planning a trip to Disney World and even a Disney Cruise. Thanks a lot, Michelle! You rock!!
Karla from California

Tracy is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable! Very happy to recommend this agency to anyone booking a Disney vacation!
Jen from Minnesota

We just booked our 4th cruise with Kathy A. I swear it becomes a smoother process every time. Not having to go over our preferences because she already has notes of them is so nice. It feels good to know that someone “knows” you and your family. We will continue to book all our Disney vacations through Small World Vacations, and Kathy specifically.
Angela from Illinois

I used them for our last trip, they were so helpful, knowledgeable and professional. They give lots of tips and tricks to help you plan your visit. I was so pleased with their service we are using them again for our next trip in 2023!
Jena from Texas

I highly recommend Small World Vacations and Lori Bandera specifically. We have booked 6+ Disney Cruises and Lori has been a joy to work with. Her responsiveness is unbelievable. Just this morning, I emailed her about booking a room at Aulani, and within an hour everything was done.
Erick from Missouri

Nikki at small world vacations is incredible! She was so great communicating with us and when we had to make changes to our vacation TWICE she was so helpful! Highly recommend her and small world vacations!! Thank you to Disney Food Blog for their recommendation!! Will never book with anyone else!!
Roxanne from Iowa

Jill has been such a tremendous help.  I am  a senior citizen and have always had a travel agent plan everything.my hometown travel ageny has closed and small world vacations was highly recommended.  From the first encounter with jill she has had extreme patience with my lack of knowledge and has gone above and beyond my expectations.   She has had to explain and assist with every step of the process.  Thank you so much. this will be a magical vacation thanks to Jill.
Judy from MI

I have booked travel with you folks for many years now. I took the recommendation from DFB. I just wanted to let you know I have never been disappointed. Marion has always been efficient, kind, patient and very knowledgeable. This is coming from a guy who constantly loses his itinerary and she’s never exasperated with me. I just wanted to let you know she does a great job. Very happy and will continue to book through you, folks because of her and her outstanding service. Thanks again Bill
Bill from Iowa

The first time we took our kids to Disney was in 2009 and booked our trip by calling the 1-800 number through Disney. Our next trip was in 2013 and we used Small World Vacations and have never booked any other way since. Small World Vacation travel agents are fantastic in helping you plan your trip. They have great advice on when to go and where to stay as well as tips to make your trip magical. We had the best experience with Brandi in 2019 and she is now our go to agent for all our Disney trips and questions. I love how they pay attention to your trip and save you money when there is a new discount. I have recommended them to all my Disney friends new and old.
Wanda from Texas

I want to give a shout out for Tanya Uythoven who has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She has been very helpful on booking our DCL cruises and been so patient working with us. We look forward to working with her for all of our future cruises!
Tony from Utah

Vacations’ experience! Marion – Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your gracious personality and amazing Disney wisdom guided us through the challenging complexities of planning and gathering our large family group of 31 so that we could enjoy a multigenerational celebration of life and experience a vacation together based at Fort Wilderness in Disneyworld. The nature of a Disney vacation has changed dramatically since I first visited with my sister shortly after it first opened decades ago. The magic is still there, yet current variations and the added number in our group arriving from all over the country certainly made navigating the system quite daunting. With her expertise, Marion helped us to create a Disney experience unique to our collective wishes and desires. Not an easy task – but Marion’s infinite insight and seemingly tireless efforts granted our wishes for an exciting and relaxing enchanted vacation. Kudos to Marion. We recommend her with high praise!
George from NH

I would like commend Leigh McCarty for making our vacation cruise so enjoyable. She was very helpful with our planning and her recommendations were spot on. I look forward to working with her again to plan our next cruise.
John from Florida

Christine at Small World Vacation is the absolute best! She is always quick to respond, has perfect recommendations, and includes a little pixie dust in the information packets she sends! I have used her for years and will continue to recommend her to anyone planning their first or fiftieth trip!
Brittany from NC

Audrey Simpson from NJ

This is a quick note to thank Amber Vaughan who was a tremendous resource in booking my first Walt Disney World vacation. We leave tomorrow for a short stay at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Amber was the consummate professional in answering (and anticipating) my many questions and helping me navigate the planning and booking of our trip. She made the entire process seamless and look easy although I know I threw her a few curve balls. I will happily continue to use and recommend Amber and Small World Vacations in the future!
Jim from Pennsylvania

Our family of 7 has engaged the services of Cheryl from Small World Vacations for our upcoming Disney trip. She has been a Godsend. Not only is she fully knowledgeable and efficient at her job, she also goes the extra mile. We have changed,  and altered and tweaked our itinerary over several month’s time and she has always cheerfully obliged.  It also seems that we wanted to make changes mostly on a Saturday and she always replied within a few minutes and made the changes right then. She is courteous and super organized.  I can’t say enough about how pleased we are about having connected with her early on in our journey to Disney World. I just wanted to give Cheryl some special recognition for her outstanding service!
Gregg from Canada

I just wanted to take time to express our great satisfaction working with Small World Vacations agent, Jill as we planned a Disney Cruise.  We wanted to surprise our nephew, his wife and our great nieces who would be onboard.  Jill went to great lengths to help us plan the surprise down to the last detail.  We did pull it off thanks to Jill!! She was so good at reminding us of all the travel tips that helped to make the planning and the trip a success!  It was a trip to remember for all and we would enthusiastically recommend Jill to plan your Disney Cruise!!!
Kathleen from Texas

We just returned from our Mediterranean cruise on the Dream and, it’s personalized service from our Small World Vacations agent, Riley that keeps everyone coming back. Year after year, trip after trip, she’s OUR PERSON, and WILL BE, not just for us, but for Our EXTENDED FAMILY. That should tell you what we think of HER,  Nuff said! KUDDOS to Riley at Small World Vacations!
Kevin from Nebraska

Rachel with Small World Vacations gave great service as I planned a family cruise for ten people. She answered all my questions in a timely manner, even when she was out of town. It helped that she had personally experienced the ship I had booked. And getting onboard credit was great!!!

My husband and I booked our honeymoon trip to the Galactic Star Cruiser with the dedicated planning of Small World Vacations’ agent, Kathy. I could not put it better than simply “Exceptional service.” Usually I am the one who researches/organises/books our trips which is fine but there is a deal of stress involved I didn’t want for our honeymoon. Booking with Kathy at Small World Vacations meant I didn’t need to overwhelm myself . Nonetheless letting go of the reigns did come with it’s own worries. Worries which proved to be swiftly unfounded as the trip ran seamlessly. Everything we hoped for; Captain’s table, first dinner seating, Savi’s workshop etc all came to happen. Without us spending hours on hold (which I have heard from UK tourists who try to book everything themselves.) The was my husband’s first trip to Florida and he is keen to return. We will be using your service again and recommending to people we know. Many thanks!
Ani and Jonathan from the UK

I want to let y’all know just how absolutely incredible Small World Vacations’ agent, Jenny is. She worked with us for probably a total of 6 months as we planned our trip and we could not have asked for a better fit! She was so incredibly knowledgeable, quick to response, super friendly, and just overall amazing. If you’re considering giving anyone a promotion I would put her first! We’ll be booking again soon and will be sure to reach back out to Jenny. I don’t think we’d be able to manage it all without her. She is simply the best.
Annie from Massachusetts

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with our recent trip and the help that we received from Small World Vacations agent, Renee.  She was recommended to us by a friend and was invaluable to us in planning our trip.  As a novice to Disney it can be overwhelming figuring everything out and she was always quick to answer all of our questions. When we plan our next trip in a few years we’ll be sure to use her again and will be happy to recommend her and your company to anyone we know.  Thank you!
Clay from Indiana

Big thank you to Disneyfoodblog for recommending Small World Vacations! Agent, Michelle was great, very attentive, answered every question I had and made sure we got exactly the vacation I wanted! I will go back to them for all my Disney vacation needs!
Thomas from Missouri

Hi Small World Vacations. I just wanted to say that I have been working for several weeks already on my trip this summer with your agent, Jill 😍 I wanted to say how happy I am to have found Jill to assist us with our Disney cruise and universal studios. I would like to point out Jill’s professionalism, listening, benevolence, kindness and her good humor ! Which allows me to leave in confidence with my family. I will definitely recommend Jill to all my friends in France for their future trips… Don’t lose a wonderful person like her.
Laurent from France

I want to brag on one of Small World Vacations’ agents,  Jodie Ball. She has gone the extra mile to help me, my family and several friends with Disney. In fact, we have done 27 Disney cruises and when we transferred to Jodie, it made it that much better. Thank you and your entire team for all you do.
Scott from Georgia

I just got done booking a cruise with Kathy Atchue. I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with her. We have worked with her on several vacations over the last 7 years and she always goes above and beyond. On our latest booking we ran into an issue where I was on a list with Disney that they would not accept my payment. She worked with her contacts and got me removed from the list and booked our upcoming cruise. She is a great communicator and easy to get a hold of, working all hours to make our vacations happen. I want to reiterate how awesome my family and I think  Kathy is and what a bright light she is for your company.
David from Ohio

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Small World Vacations agent, Angela, for such a wonderful vacation. We had an absolutely wonderful trip to WDW. It wasn’t possible without her expertise and knowledge. Angela was always quick to My family and I are extremely thankful for her assistance. I would like to thank her so much for all her hard work and passion for what she does. My family had the best magical family vacation and the memories will last forever. I have recommended my friends to connect with Angela at Small World Vacations in the future for a WDW trip. 
Harit from Ontario Canada

I’m sending a quick note to share positive feedback and complements on the performance of Small World Vacations’ agent, Amber Vaughan. We just returned from a Disney Cruise and I’ve completed planning a few days at a WDW resort and parks in May. Amber’s help in booking, advising, and generally making things way easier than they would have been without her has been exceptional. I appreciate her knowledge and competence and will absolutely come back to her for future trips. We’re already talking about another cruise and additional WDW resorts for late 2023 and 2024. Thought you’d want to know she’s been super helpful and valuable. Thanks!
Scott from Florida

I just wanted to be sure that Ms. Carrie Johnson is recognized for the great work that she does. She handled everything and let me know when it was done. She made recommendations. She kept us excited for our vacation. She answered all of my emails and provided information that was all accurate. She worked very hard for us, and she truly, truly, deserves all of the credit and acknowledgement for setting up our incredible cruise. I don’t know if it is allowed, but in the future, if she is still working with Small World Vacations, if it is ok with her and with Small World Vacations, we would love for her to handle our next Disney vacation…
Daniel from Hawaii

Small World Vacations’ Agent, Ella has helped us out with three different Disney trips and she is the absolute best. She is kind, knowledgeable, and responsive. This was particularly important when things didn’t go as planned (Covid, hurricane in Florida). I felt like I had a partner through every step of the process. I have recommended Ella and Small World Vacation to a number of my friends. Do whatever you need to do to keep Ella at SWV!
Linda from Nebraska

Hi Tracy – I just wanted to send you a thank you again for how wonderfully you took care of us on our last trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. We had the perfect room with a perfect view and it was the least stressful vacation I’ve ever been on. Y’all really do make dreams come true. Thanks for everything!
Elisa from Oregon

We consider ourselves Disney World pros and love planning our trips. I’m a bit of a parks strategy nerd, so if I have a question it’s usually a doozy. Cheryl at Small World Vacations has ALWAYS replied to even my whackiest questions quickly and thoroughly. Using an agent, even for those of us who think we know it all, is so helpful. It costs nothing but can save you time and money every trip!

Just wanted to pass along my wonderful experience with Small World Vacations Agent, Heather Garrett. I sent an inquiry on Christmas night. Then on Monday morning – day after Christmas – she had already reached out to me with a quote. I even changed my mind and had her look into something else and she quickly gave me an updated quote. An hour later, we were on the phone together and booking the cruise. She was able to get me a deal I wasn’t able to find online. As cheesy as it sounds, she really did make our Disney dreams come true!!! I will be recommending her and Small World Vacations to anyone who’s looking to do Disney!!
Nicole from Louisiana

The first time we took our kids to Disney was in 2009 and booked our trip by calling the 1-800 number through Disney.

They have great advice on when to go and where to stay as well as tips to make your trip magical. We had the best experience with Brandi in 2019 and she is now our go to agent for all our Disney trips and questions. I love how they pay attention to your trip and save you money when there is a new discount. I have recommended them to all my Disney friends new and old.
Wanda from Texas

I would like to thank Tanya at Small World Vacations for her amazing service. Our trip started on Christmas morning and by the evening Southwest Airlines had messed up our Disney/ Starcruiser vacation. I called Tanya, knowing it was Christmas Day and not only she answered, she did her magic and our trip was saved.
