Marion, you seriously have made our day! We have been so excited for this day and I cannot believe you made our Wish come true! OMG…you are our most magical Fairy Godmother!
Let the countdown begin!
We Are So Excited!!!!!
From a Happy DFB reader – I just wanted to let you know that my wife, my daughter, and I spent over an hour today discussing possible Disneyland and Disney World vacations with Small World Vacations. We spoke with Riley, and she was a wealth of information, and so pleasant to talk to. Thank you for recommending Small World Vacations, as we look forward to booking several Disney vacations through Riley. She also spoke very highly about you and DFB GUIDE.
Brandi, your prompt help and your enthusiasm finally has me excited like I should be about this trip.
To Stephanie – Our Disney vacation was great, thank you so very much for all of the awesome help and support! You were SO helpful and supportive throughout the entire process- we truly appreciate it. You are absolutely wonderful, and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with you again in the future and would highly recommend you to anyone planning a Disney vacation.
I have worked with Deanna several times to plan a vacation to Wait Disney World. I would like to say that I have only good things to say about my experience with her. She is always prompt in replying to both emails and phone calls. Her knowledge of Walt Disney World is fantastic and I plan to use her whenever I am planning on visiting there. I have also recommended Small World Vacations to friends based on my dealings with Deanna.
I found Small World Vacations quite by accident when i started looking how to book a Disney World vacation as well a cruise on the Disney Dream. Lulu became our agent and what a fantastic partnership it turned out to be. We started the process way back in January 2019 and Lauren was there for us all of the time. The number of emails grew and still she remained so patient with our requests and number of changes and couldn’t do enough for my family and I. The end result was a fantastic holiday for eight of us coming from all over the world. SWV you have an incredible star in Lauren Ewing and i believe she should be nominated for agent of the year. Thank you Lauren from the bottom of our hearts for making our trip of a lifetime the success it was!
Hi Heather – I appreciate the help! You have converted me from a Disney self planner to someone who will use a Disney vacation planner going forward.
I have worked with Alice at Small World Vacations many times and she always does an AMAZING job! Makes our Disney experience more enjoyable and magical
In our fast paced world, we are quick to write a complaint but never to stop and thank the person who has helped us. I am writing you to advise you that your vacation planner, Andrea, was just amazing in helping me plan a “last wish” trip for my friend and her family. Andrea answered every question with patience, guidance and understanding to make this trip the best. She never made me feel like I was a bother to her after number phone calls and emails going back and forth
I wanted to give my TA, Annette Fayonsky, a shout out. She has been great all the way through our 1st Disney Cruise in 2019 to today. She has been juggling an upcoming/ now moved cruise, a WDW vacation and a DL trip. Unfortunately that DL trip will have to be moved but I trust Annette to do it.
My wife and I understand that handling multiple vacations at once is stressful. We can’t imagine having to do it for multiple people/families too. We really appreciate Annette’s informative assistance and help. I cannot express my gratitude for her prompt responses. She is such a great TA. We will continue booking thru her and Small World Vacations for all of our Disney needs.
We had an amazing trip to Disney World! This was our fifth time using Small World Vacations and working with Heather. She has found us great deals and helped us through all of the planning from start to finish. It feels great knowing there is someone there to help if we need anything. This year we stayed at the Boardwalk Inn and got to visit all 4 parks. We had a great trip and our kids are already asking when we are going back!
I used to book all of my Disney Travel on my own. Small World vacations, especially Kristina, has made booking with them far easier and more fun at NO EXTRA COST with some added side bonuses. We LOVE Small World Vacations.
Would love to give a giant shout out to Lauren (Lulu) at Small World Vacations. She is the best!!! Thank you Lauren for helping us have the best vacation with our daughter’s family at Disney World, Grand Floridian Resort last week!!!
Our travel agent Karen Nunn was assigned to us when we wanted to book our Walt Disney World vacation quite some time ago. We asked so many questions due to Covid, we changed our mind so many times with our hotel choice, our ticket choices and had so many numerous questions we have emailed and called her about it was a lot for anyone to handle. I can tell you if our roles were reversed, I would have been aggravated and frustrated to say the least. Karen on the other hand was the most kind, thoughtful, considerate, patient travel agent I have ever used. I will never use anyone else but her. Karen is exceptional at what she does and her knowledge of Disney is second to none! She went out of her way to make our trip perfect. I subscribe to the people that have recommended your company which is how I decided to obtain your service ( Disney Food Blog) So glad we did!
Lulu at Small World Vacations was our Disney specialist. She was absolutely amazing. She orchestrated a trip for 11 people to Disney World. And then nine people for the Disney Cruise. It was so wonderful to have one person in charge of everything and a contact that I could reach out to whenever things were spinning out of control. I even reached out to her during the vacation when we had a couple snags. She responded immediately. I’m sure all the agents are fantastic. However, Lulu had fantastic reviews and based off of those, I requested her. She has lived up to all of the wonderful things that us Disney goers have commented about her. She was wonderful with watching for discounts, any changes that we needed to make, responding immediately, and just a wonderful person to work with…Do yourself a huge favor, leave travel up to the professionals. And just enjoy your vacation.
Hi Jenny – We returned last weekend from our vacay in WDW and wanted to thank you for everything you did to make it a memorable and enjoyable trip. We really liked the Caribbean Beach Resort…the room and location were great (Jamaica) especially the quick walk from there to the Skyliner station! Overall we had a wonderful time, came home exhausted ( as usual; is there any other way? LOL) and are already looking forward to our next visit (presumably in better times) in a couple of years. When that happens, we certainly hope we can once again use Small World Vacations and specifically you again, to plan our trip! Again, our sincere and genuine thanks for everything you did to make our trip easy, enjoyable, and yes , magical!
Jill is so wonderful, she helped us plan our whole trip, she made it so easy and simple. If you’ve tried to plan a Disney vacation in recent years, you know it can be very complicated and hard to know which way to go with resorts and dining and transportation, but Jill guided me through all this and gave tons of great information. She took what could have been a stressful process and made it totally easy!! I wholeheartedly recommend using Jill and Small World Vacations to plan your next vacation!
Hi Meredith- We had a fantastic time! So much that we ended up cancelling our flight home and stayed a couple extra days 😅 Disney did sooo well with handling COVID. Felt safe, comfortable. This trip would not have gone as smoothly without you!
Once again, Tanya has provided superior customer service. Not only is her disposition always cheerful and helpful, but she is amazingly flexible and efficient. She was able to help us assess multiple scenarios for our trip (we were traveling with relatives) and identify what would allow us to get our ideal Disney vacation while optimizing our budget. No matter how many times I contacted her with questions, she remained timely and helpful in response. She never appears frustrated and always makes me feel like a priority. This is our third time using Small World Vacations and we remain pleased with Tanya’s exceptional service.
I am writing to let you know what a wonderful job Shannon Griffith did in assisting me plan my family’s Disney trip. She was there every step of the way with helpful tips and advice on everything from choosing a resort to tips for dining and Fastpass. This was my first time planning a Disney vacation, so I had very little knowledge of how much planning goes into a trip like this. My wife and kids (8 and 6) had an awesome time, and Shannon played a big part in that. She was always quick to return my phone calls and respond to my emails. In short, I don’t think we would have had as great a vacation had we not worked with Shannon. I already asked for help in planning our next Disney vacation! Again, my reason for writing is to let you know how wonderful of an agent you have in Shannon. I will recommend her and Small World Vacations to family and friends.
We have been to Disney World 5 times in the last 16 years. I have ALWAYS booked the vacation, dining and other activities on my own. Wendy helped with everything and it didn’t cost us anything more…..actually she saved us money because she got us a discount that I might have missed if I was doing it on my own. I will DEFINITELY use her services again…..and recommend her to all my friends, Kudos to Wendy on a great trip planned for us.
Thank you Marion for all that you have done/will do to make sure that we will have a magical vacation in 2022. You are an excellent travel agent with the knowledge, experience, and perfect personality to plan for all things Disney. We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your help and effort now and later as we book our park stay and cruise details.
We had an amazing trip to Disney World! This was our fifth time using Small World Vacations and working with Heather. She has found us great deals and helped us through all of the planning from start to finish. It feels great knowing there is someone there to help if we need anything.
This year we stayed at the Boardwalk Inn and got to visit all 4 parks. We had a great trip and our kids are already asking when we are going back!
Heather is our Small World Vacations’ agent and she has been fantastic! We have 4 room reservations and I cannot imagine navigating our multiple reservations through all of the COVID changes without her help. She has been on top of every change and communicates any news quickly. I will use her for all our future trips!
I found Small World Vacations quite by accident when I started looking how to book a Disney World vacation as well a cruise on the Disney Dream. Lulu became our agent and what a fantastic partnership it turned out to be. We started the process way back in January 2019 and Lauren was there for us all of the time.

Thank you Lulu from the bottom of our hearts for making our trip of a lifetime the success it was!
Meredith at Small World Vacations was absolutely AMAZING!!! We had help the whole planning phase, during our stay and after! She is really a Disney expert and I will never book through any other means. Thank you!!
Michelle at Small World Vacations handled our trip in December (originally for May). I cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she put in to make our trip wonderful in this difficult travel time. She planned a 2 day Universal Studios trip for us and a 4 day Disney World trip. Her attentiveness to deal changes, ability to seamlessly handle the change of reservations during the closure and help along the way were very much appreciated. It was also a huge weight off my shoulders to know someone else was taking care of all the necessary changes. I would highly recommend Small World Vacations and will definitely use them again for our next vacation.
Caylie with Small World Vacations has been a dream to work with! We took our first Disney Cruise and Caylie made every step of the process enjoyable and easy. We were able to focus on our building excitement, instead of worrying about minute details. It was a given that we would come back to her to book our next cruise and my parents are using her, as well. We won’t do Disney with anyone else! Thanks, Caylie!!
Lisa from Georgia
I’ve been working with Minnie on booking my 2019 cruise. She was SO efficient in email responses to my million requests! I’m excited to book and to cruise with Disney next year! Minnie made the process super easy and smooth! First time working with Small World!
My family and I have used Shannon from Small World Vacations multiple times. I just wanted to share how helpful and amazing she is! We’ve had 4 incredible trips with her and she always goes above and beyond to make it so. We could not have asked for a more magical experience!!
Chris has been extremely helpful, answering my emails promptly and at all hours of the day. She went out of her way to assist me to make this the easiest vacation planning I’ve ever done. I was very nervous but with her help with my dining reservations, this was a breeze. She made this a fun experience from beginning to end.
Hi Tracy – Thank you for always taking such wonderful care of us! So blessed to have connected with you, to receive your amazing assistance in guidance! Much Gratitude.
Wow where do I begin? Kelly is an amazing agent who made booking easy. We were due to arrive Mon Sept 2 but because of Hurricane Darion we were panicking. We got our flight moved to Saturday morning and were wondering where we are going to stay. We emailed Kelly and told her the situation and she got back to us within minutes giving us options to extend our Resort stay last minute. She walked us through everything, we were going to have to stay at a different resort and transfer and she even got Disney to let us stay at the same resort last minute. Wonderful! Cannot recommend Kelly at Small World Vacations enough. We’ll be bunkering down at Art of Animation during the storm, thanks for saving our trip!! ️
Deanna, thank you so much for the follow up. In 18 months we will be so engaged with all the wonderful next things that COVID will look like a blip. It just is a tough time for all and I like to make sure you hear how appreciated you are. As always there is no better Disney Travel Agent than you…. you make all the difference.
I would like to brag on my Small World Vacations’ travel agent and the exceptional job she has done! Annette has gone above and beyond to assist me with the planning, reservation and payments for my Disney Cruise. She was very patience and answered all the questions I had!
I just returned from a Disney/ Universal vacation arranged by your agent, Jo Raccuia. I just wanted you to know that she is amazing. Everything was planned perfectly and she was able to accommodate a few last minute requests I had. Excellent!!!
I booked my family’s first Walt Disney World vacation with Small World Vacations. Shannon made everything very easy, included comprehensive details that I never would have thought to ask, and she was highly responsive anytime I had a question. We haven’t really thought about our next vacation, but whenever we decide to head back to Disney, I will undoubtedly use Small World Vacations and hope that Shannon can arrange our trip.
Tracy at Small World Vacations is the best. Very knowledgeable, timely, patient and courteous!
Thanks Alice, for all you did to help make our vacation to Disney so magical! You helped educate us on many things about Disney and now, we feel much more knowledgeable for next time! Thank you for your patience and for answering all our questions. We were so appreciative of the free one year subscription to TouringPlans.com-the restaurant finder was amazing!!! Thank you again so much!
I wanted to let you know how amazing Lynne has been while booking. She’s gone above and beyond, even modified things for me while she was on vacation! I will highly recommend her to anyone I know! She’s made this a dream (after my own health issues).
I just want to brag a little on our travel representative Heather Garrett! In a time that has been so uncertain, Heather went above and beyond to help us prepare for our upcoming vacation. She has been so amazing and deserves great praise!!! Thank you
I have never had such great customer service than I had with Kristina. We booked our Disney vacation with her and I had a lot of questions and emailed her several times and she was quick to respond. And, not only did she provide me with the answer, she gave me additional information with links to help explain her answer. My whole experience with her and Small World Vacations was wonderful. When we go back, I will book with her again.
This was our first experience with any kind of travel agent. Carrie has converted me! I used to be in charge of all travel arrangements and making grids of reservations, etc….it was wonderful to have that all arranged and Carrie did a great job of tracking additional discounts and upgrades. She was a wonderful resource for my newbie cruise questions with spot-on answers. We had a wonderful trip and look forward to working with Carrie (and Small World Vacations) in the future.
After 10 years Small World Vacations’ agent, Karen, has been the most amazing Travel Agent we could ever ask for. She’s helped us with everything from our 1st Disney Cruise (which was our honeymoon) till now this year, going on our 10 year wedding anniversary. It is our 6th cruise being booked by Karen. She has helped us with booking, making payments, and answering our questions (dumb or not). Even when she is on vacation she answers our questions. I realize that is her job, but Karen makes us feel like she is our best friends helping us book our vacation. I have always been pleased with the service I receive from her. Her professionalism and enthusiasm exceeded our expectations. We love Karen and are excited for the next 10 years.
Hi. I just wanted to pass along my glowing review of Anne at Small World Vacations! She has been a major life saver during this crazy time. I have been working with Anne for the past few years, mainly with Disney Cruises. She has always been helpful, knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. During the pandemic, she has gone above and beyond! We had two cruises cancelled with DCL – one with multiple rooms. She has been on top of all the refunds/changing cruises and has kept me informed step by step. It has really been a life saver as my husband and I both are physicians and have worked through this pandemic. To know that Anne has my cancelled vacations handled is one thing off my plate – and has allowed me to plan another cruise for next summer. I just wanted to pass along my glowing review and let you know what a wonderful job she is doing!
I want to praise Small World Vacations’ agent, Deanna, for her professionalism and knowledge in helping me plan a surprise vacation to celebrate my wife’s 40th Birthday and our 15 year wedding anniversary this month. She was readily available with assistance throughout the entire process and especially when there was a snag with our meal plan on our first day. We have had the privilege of working with Deanna twice before and she remains one of the nicest and polite people we have worked with. Please acknowledge her for her efforts as I have already emailed her to give her our thanks. I want those that she is working for to know how appreciative we are for working with her and will be planning another trip for August with Deanna.
Hi Jo! We are packing and getting ready to go home. Thank you so very much for all the help you were in our trip planning. We had such a great time with our family and felt very safe with Disney’s precautions. Weather was cool but warmer than Ohio and only about an hour of rain during our whole trip. We ate at 16 table service restaurants and all were wonderful. Many were new ones to us since several of our usual go to’s were not reopened yet. The granddaughters loved the cavalcades and surprise appearances of the characters. The only thing we missed were the park hoppers. Didn’t really miss the fast passes like we thought we might. Ready to plan our next trip!!!!!!!!
Minnie is truly an amazing agent. This is the second time I have worked with her for our Disney World Vacation. I know that I am demanding and her patience with me is incredible. She is always happy to make any adjustments. I truly appreciate all she has done and I know that I can count on her right through to the end of our vacation. Small World Vacations is my first choice and that is because of agents like Minnie.
From 2012 until now, Jodie has taken care of all my Disney cruise and land bookings. I considered myself a Disney expert but found Jodie is more knowledgeable about all things Disney. She will inform me as soon as she learns of something that might affect my Disney reservation. She is also patient and quick to respond with changes that I request such as changing a stateroom or a date on a cruise. As a result of her good service I refer her to friends because I know she will take care of them.
I so enjoyed working with Small World Vacations agent Kathy on our Walt Disney World vacation in 2020! She’s been so patient with all my questions, she’s promptly answered my emails, I couldn’t ask for a better association! Thank you Kathy for your help and the wonderful “hand-holding” emails I’ve received since we booked with you, filled with information to ensure we won’t miss a thing!
This is a humble note of appreciation for the outstanding customer services provided by Disney Vacation Planner, Jenny. I commend the prompt service she provided. No matter how many times I change my itinerary, Jenny is willing to update my quotes quickly and courteously. Great customer service makes your customers feel that you care about developing a long-term relationship that mean more that just making a sale. Jenny has been a blessing!
We recently sailed on our first Disney Cruise along with another family and it was the best vacation ever! We used Lulu to plan and it was absolutely painless. She booked our rooms together and linked meals and activities for the kids. We had such a great time, we booked another cruise and will most definitely use Lulu. She was wonderful!
I am a long time customer of Small World Vacations and wanted to let you know how great Jo and Marion have been. With 5 now grown children and 11 grandchildren we have just booked our 42nd or 43rd trip to DW (but who is counting?!) Without fail they have always helped us find the best accommodations and prices at your Disney World favorites: Yacht and Beach and, monitor for discounts, annual pass rates, etc. I must say that on more than one occasion our plans changed regarding arrival or departure dates, number of rooms, etc and they have always been patient and responsive. In any service business clients are much more inclined to complain so I wanted to take time to send some very positive feedback your way.
Good morning! I was able to lock in every single FastPass we were hoping for. Thanks for letting me know ahead of time , because Disney didn’t sent me an email until noon on my Fastpass booking day. Had I waited for Disney, I may not have had any luck. Big thanks to Jo from Small World Vacations.
THANK YOU SO MUCH to Karen for everything you did in helping us plan our wonderful and magical vacation. You definitely FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. I greatly appreciate your promptness in responding to my phone calls and emails. I am also grateful for your suggestions in dining and itinerary options. Planning a Disney trip can be extremely overwhelming and your expertise and willingness to help made it so easy. We definitely plan on going back and you can count on getting a call from me for help in planning another trip.
I have used Kathy from Small World Vacations for my trips to Disney World as well as my trip to Universal Studios. I can not say enough great things about her. She is a great asset to any company. You have questions or concerns she is on it, you will usually hear back very quickly as well. I thank you once again for making my vacation planning a very enjoyable task!
Small World Vacations was a great pick for a company to make arrangements for our trip. I would give Jenny Schoelman extra stars if I could. Jenny was a great consultant, giving us suggestions and making our arrangements—and she was on target with everything. She was extremely responsive to all our questions and concerns, responding to emails rapidly even on weekends. She made sure we had all the information we needed and sent reminders when we could make meal reservations and get fast passes. Even though she said she couldn’t guarantee adjoining rooms, we got them, and they were in perfect locations both at Disney World and on the Disney cruise. A Disney World vacation can be complicated to arrange, but Jenny made it easy.

I have had the pleasure of working with agent Sandy for many years now. She has helped me plan several Walt Disney World trips and multiple Disney cruises. Sandy has always gone above and beyond what is expected. She is very efficient in her responses to questions and requests for quotes, and is always quick to offer tips, recommendations and much appreciated advice. Working with her makes my trip planning stress free and enjoyable! I’m so fortunate and glad she is helping me plan my latest cruise vacation. Thank you to Sandy and Small World Vacations for exceeding my vacation planning expectations!
The thought of planning a Disney World vacation was overwhelming. From the start, Steph made us feel at ease and provided everything we needed. She answered all our questions in a prompt and timely manner. I don’t think we could have done this without her help. I wanted to let you know what an amazing, intelligent and knowledgeable agent she is. My wife and I are thankful that we had the opportunity to interact with such a fun but business-like woman. What a wonderful person she is!
Hello I’d sincerely like to thank Jenny Schoelman & Small World Vacations for helping my family plan multiple Walt Disney World trips over the past two years. Jenny‘s expertise and patience for all my questions has been greatly appreciated and has taken the stress off of planning for me. I really appreciate that she gets back to me right away on all my questions and also comes up with some great ideas and saving tips she has been a lifesaver. I will definitely be recommending Small World Vacations to all our friends and family who plan on a Disney trip thank you again XO
Thanks to Angela for all the legwork she did for us. Overall, our trip was wonderful! The little ones had a lot to do and we stayed busy the entire time. Angela’s food suggestions were great. I really appreciate everything she did to make our vacation as smooth as possible. I couldn’t have done it without her!
Me and my mom have recently booked our first Disney Cruise. Marion has been wonderful to work with! She is very knowledgeable and quickly to answer any questions for we have. Thank you for making this experience smooth and very enjoyable.
I was so impressed with our Small World Vacations’ agent, Kersie because of her amount of knowledge and her level of patience with me. I asked her a ton of questions (and hours of talking on the phone) before I committed to booking our first ever trip. She’s experienced in her job as well as personal travel to Disney. She sends follow up emails when she says that she’s going to and I absolutely love all the Disney information she sends. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat especially their agent, Kersie
To whom it may concern,
Annette from Small World Vacations was amazing in helping with all the details of our Disney Vacation and even surprised us with a gift bag at our hotel. This is our second time booking with her and WILL use her again in the future.
I just want to say, again, how much I appreciate you!!!! All this uncertainty during COVID can make everything so stressful, but knowing you are there to help us really puts me at ease!!!! Thanks Heather!
Booked my family’s first Walt Disney World vacation with Small World Vacations. They were amazing and as a result, our vacation was amazing! Amanda was our agent and I wouldn’t trade her for the world!! She made everything so comprehensive and easy!! She was the best and answered literally all of my questions no matter how small or how big they were. I look forward to booking our next vacation with Amanda as our agent!
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 through so many cancellations due to COVID this past year. We look forward to working with her for all of our future cruises!
I was overwhelmed. Our Small World Vacations’ agent, Amber, did an absolutely WONDERFUL job in pointing out options to make our trip magical, especially for our five grandchildren – ages 4-9. It was a perfect trip, in great part because our agent helped us maximize our time at each of the Disney parks.
Hi Jill – I CANNOT thank you enough!!! From talking with you back in the summer of 2019, through now – you have represented “the magic” and I have just so much gratitude and appreciation for your patience, help, and knowledge!!!
Hello Shannon, I wanted to thank you so much for answering all my questions and responding so quickly to my emails. I really appreciate how much you helped us with this trip. We would’ve had many issues had you not given us so many helpful tips. This was our first experience at Disney World and at times this was an overwhelming process for me. I have two smaller children and often times am incredibly busy.
Working with Mandy at Small World Vacations right now to book our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World, and I couldn’t be more pleased! She is so helpful, and has lots of great ideas. They came highly recommended, and now I know why.
Hi Sherri – Thank you SO MUCH for helping set up our trip, answering questions, dealing with the uncertainty of the COVID situation, etc. Your work made an unforgettable trip for my family and we are appreciative of that. I was really impressed with the COVID response at the parks with the markers on the ground and in the dividers in the queue lines. There were cast members walking around and making sure visitors were abiding by the rules. I promise that when we do get serious about beginning to make future Disney plans, I’ll email you first to get us started!
We worked with Meredith at Small World Vacations for our Walt Disney World vacation. She made every step so easy and answered all of our questions! Great team at Small World Vacations!
I just wanted to tell you how WONDERFUL Karen has been. We have been using Small World for 10 years since 2009 and have nothing but good things to say. Karen has helped with all my confusion and questions with kindness.
I have booked several Disney vacations with Leslie at Small World. She has so much knowledge of where to stay, eat and full of fun and different things to do each time we visit. She is also diligent about monitoring discounts that become available and has saved us money after booking on more than one occasion. I don’t want to plan a Disney vacation without her.
I’ve been working with Minnie on booking my Disney cruise. She was SO efficient in email responses to my million requests! I’m excited to book and to cruise with Disney next year! Minnie made the process super easy and smooth! First time working with Small World Vacations!
To Small World Vacations Agent, Melanie – I’m gonna have to let Disney know what a great agent you are! Thank you!
Thanks so very much for doing all the legwork for all of us again! It’s always been a pleasure working with you on these trips and this one has been no exception.
You’re simply the BEST and we really appreciate YOU!
I wanted to send a quick note and mentioned how pleased I am with using Small World Vacations for our travel experience. Yesterday we rescheduled our trip for 10 members of my family to Disney World due to Hurricane Dorian. Lynne Amodeo, our agent, worked tirelessly for my family to reschedule the trip. She was on hold for over 2 hours and negotiated with guest services to honor the original rate we had booked 6 months prior. She has truly treated our family’s trip as if it were her own trip and we truly appreciate Lynne’s time and effort. We 100% recommend Lynne and Small World Vacations as you never know what could happen with a trip of this magnitude.
My wife was pregnant with our second child when Small World Vacations planned our first Disney World vacation with Lynne 10 years ago, and we are still talking about how great it was! We are hoping to take our second WDW trip with both kids this spring, and are Small World Vacations is our first stop!
Thank you Jill! I have to tell you I see many people complain about their Travel Agent’s lack of communication and I always share your contact information. I appreciate how you do your job.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate Jill Maguire for all her help over the years and especially during a pandemic. We appreciate her immensely: she’s responsive, detail-oriented, and always has the best recommendations for our specific needs.
In finding our Disney deal, I ended up working with Melanie, a travel agent from Small World Vacations. She was very knowledgeable and helpful in knowing which resorts were under construction and how that might impact our stay. When my husband heard I worked with a travel agent, he wanted to know how much that cost, legit question. The answer is nothing. There was no charge in using her services. The perk of having her to help is her knowledge base when making the reservation but also the time that passed between booking and traveling. I made our reservations in May for a trip in September. During that time, Melanie arranged for our Magical Express bus shuttle from the airport to resort, I received helpful emails such as a Timeline Planning Guide, MagicBand information and reminders when I could start making reservations.
Anne from Small World Vacations has been one of the most helpful, courteous and hardworking travel agents I have ever worked with! I have emailed her numerous times with questions and her vast knowledge has not only impressed me EVERY time but her understanding of the teeny nuances of planning have been amazing. She has gone above and beyond to make sure that our family has the most magical Disney vacation we could imagine and for that I can never thank her enough!!!
Hello! I just wanted to share how amazing and helpful Jenny has been. We decided in late June to book a Disney Cruise sailing in September for our family of 5. I couldn’t find any availability online and when I called Disney directly, they confirmed there were no rooms that could accommodate our size family. Thankfully, I still reached out to Jenny because she suggested connecting rooms and quickly reserved them for us. We would not have been able to go if it weren’t for Jenny because I didn’t know about connecting rooms and no one at Disney suggested it. Since then, she had been so helpful and responsive in booking reservations and excursions and linking our meals and activities with friends on the ship. I can’t say enough good things and will definitely be recommending Jenny to all my friends!
Our family returned from a Christmas vacation at the Art of Animation and I wanted to take the time to let you know that Riley was essential in making our Disney trip a success. Without her help in planning ahead for all the details like fast passes and dining reservations we would not have enjoyed ourselves going at such a busy time of year. From the start, Riley was always quick to respond to my questions and all her suggestions were very helpful. We traveled from California to Orlando and this was something we had to save and plan for and I am happy it was worth making this happen for our kids. It was full of memories and I also loved how memory maker captured some of them! I would happily recommend Small World Vacations based on her support in making it a dream trip come true! Thank You!!!!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Angela from Small World and I highly recommend her. Great attention to detail, great restaurant and tour suggestions and great customer service.
We had a wonderful vacation. Thanks to Deanna for all her help and suggestions with planning. The looks on my kid’s faces and the excitement were unforgettable. Everything was great…. The weather, The Art of Animation was incredible and mostly the memories that my family shared will be with us forever!!!!
Small World Vacations was a great pick for a company to make arrangements for our trip. I would give Jenny extra stars if I could. Jenny was a great consultant, giving us suggestions and making our arrangements—and she was on target with everything. She was extremely responsive to all our questions and concerns, responding to emails rapidly even on weekends. She made sure we had all the information we needed and sent reminders when we could make meal reservations and get fast passes. Even though she said she couldn’t guarantee adjoining rooms, we got them, and they were in perfect locations both at Disney World and on the Disney cruise. A Disney World vacation can be complicated to arrange, but Jenny made it easy.
We are first time cruisers! Our agent Small World Vacations’ agent, Riley is so helpful and able to answer all of our questions. They really do take all the stress out of planning.
Fantastic agency, have used Small World Vacations 3 times a year every year since 2004. Our agent is Josephine and she is fabulous. It’s completely safe, they only take your payment details to pass on to WDW (or other hotels), who then process your payments. Your travel insurance will cover any other problems but in 30+ trips we’ve booked with Jo we haven’t had any other than outstanding service.
Kersie helped me and booked our honeymoon reservations to sail on Disney Dream. She was a pleasure, efficient, knowledgeable and punctual. Small World Vacations made vacation planning simple, and I intend utilize them again and again.
I just wanted to thank Carrie for help assisting me with my first trip to Disney World. She answered all my many questions, made me aware of discounts and secured them and let me know ahead of time when to book my dining plus she took care of my Boo Bash ticket!! I did a lot of researching plus the added benefit of DFB, I’m glad I went with Small World Vacations!! Sherelle
We booked our last 2 Disney Cruises through Small World Vacations. Lynne was amazing each time as we had many changes due to being a military family. I will never book our DCL vacation with anyone else!
I would like someone to know how awesome Kristina is to work with in planning a Disney cruise. This was my first cruise and was with my middle son and his family. She found us the best prices and also was extremely patient in answering my hundreds of questions. I have some disabilities and if there were things she wasn’t sure of she pointed me to someone with Disney who had the answers. Thanks in part to Kristina, my son and his family, and Disney, this was certainly the best vacation in my life. I’m praying I will be able to go on another one someday. She is the Best and makes sure to inform you of all details of a Disney Cruise during your planning. I’ve already told several people about her expertise in helping someone plan a Disney Cruise. Thank you!
My husband and I just returned from a Disney trip. We had a wonderful time and a lot had to do with your representative, Beckie. She was a valuable source of information. She was always cheerful and prompt to return both my phone calls or emails. We have been to Disney before, but she gave us tips and insights that were great. If we were to plan another Disney trip (you never know), I would certainly contact Beckie, and I will highly recommend her to anyone planning a Disney trip. Thanks again.
I wanted to write and give feedback on my recent reservation experience with Tanya Uythoven. Tanya was AMAZING!!! She was patient, detailed, responsive, clear and tremendously helpful as we planned our vacation. We are going to Disney for the first time as a family (my wife and I have gone before as kids, but we have a 22 month old and a 9 month old and we decided to take a last minute trip so it’ll be our first trip together as a family). Over the course of three days, Tanya did extensive research to find the best deal for us. She looked at numerous dates in November and gave us creative solutions for maximizing our trip while controlling costs. She helped us reserve our hotel, transportation, and park tickets. She also helped us make a reservation for a character breakfast and gave us extremely helpful tips for planning our trip with two little kids. I cannot overstate how thankful we are for all of her help and guidance. She is amazing and she will definitely be our first call for future Disney trips. Thanks so much Tanya! We’re so excited for our trip and we couldn’t have planned it without you!
I wanted to pass on my feedback on your agent Minnie. She delivered on promises and was always a step ahead
This is the first time I have used an agent for a cruise and, in fact, the first time I have used any personal travel provider assistance for many years. As an executive in IT who travels regularly and is in a customer centric business, I am very aware of the service levels required to ensure customer satisfaction. I wanted to let the Small World Vacations’ team know that Minnie is a true asset to your business.
Marion – Thanks to you, we definitely hit a home run. I look forward to working out the details with you. And again, we appreciate the time you spend with us, as well –of course—as the excellent advice and attention to detail that you provide.
Mary from Small World Vacations has been helping my sister and I plan a trip to Disney World. I just want to let you know that “SHE ROCKS”!!!!!! Mary has been wonderful in helping to plan this trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This happy guest sent this very kind and thoughtful email to AJ at DisneyFoodBlog
Dear AJ – I am sure that you receive a lot of email filled with complaints. Well, let me send this email with only nice comments. Riley, at Small World Vacations is the THE BEST vacation planner ever!! Not only does she respond to emails and phone calls promptly, but she even made time on Saturday (May 8, 2021), HER FREE TIME, to spend over an hour discussing vacation plans with us (my wife, my daughter and me). Plus, AJ, nobody can be more dedicated than Riley since she emailed to me this morning, MOTHER’S DAY, our Confirmation Number and pertinent other information.
I once again want to THANK YOU for telling us about Small World Vacations on your vlogs which we watch every day. Please inform your contacts at Small World Vacations just how pleased we are that they are working with us. I also hope that you mention their excellent service on your vlogs, as they are truly excellent.
Thank you, AJ
Cheryl is an absolute DREAM to work with. She handles everything and answers any question you may have. She even stayed in contact while she was on her own vacation. GREAT job Small World! We will be using you again in the future.
Hi Shannon – I can’t thank you enough for all your hard and excellent work you did for us so we could have a very Magical Disney Vacation!! The Trip was more than I expected that is for sure. Everything was perfect (and I don’t say that word very often:) And a lot of that perfection was thanks to you. Thank you!
I’ve always booked Disney on my own in the past. KATHY at Small World Vacations has been such a big help with discounts and information. Let me tell you, I’d be pulling my hair out right now if it wasn’t for her!
Hi Marion – I appreciated your help so much with what would’ve been our Disney cruise in 2020 and wouldn’t trust anyone else with planning another Disney trip!
Deanna from Small World Vacations has helped us for several trips and is wonderful! Our last trip was actually slightly interrupted by hurricane Irma. Deanna kept me calm and made sure we were able to make any changes needed. Highly recommend her and have to many people.
That is truly amazing. Thank you, Melanie. You have no idea how glad I am to have gone through Small World Vacations.
I have been working with Melanie. Always very helpful, she has been super quick to respond to my questions. Having her guide me through this vacation has really reduced my stress level. Thank you, Melanie and Small World Vacations.
Hi Angela – I just wanted to thank you for all your help and multiple rebookings on my Walt Disney World trip. We did go last week and had a great time. When people ask me how it was, I tell them I felt safe and Disney is doing all they can to make sure people adhere to the rules. I do tell people it’s a great time to go if your main draw is rides. Anyway, I’ve already passed your name on to some friends of mine who saw my wife’s posts about the trip on Facebook and they decided they want to go now, too. I will happily recommend you to all my friends in the future!
I just wanted to take a minute to sing Small World Vacations’ agent, Riley’s praises. She has been a HUGE help and asset in planning our Disney World trip. She’s responsive, knowledgeable and awesome. We won’t plan another vacation without Small World Vacations! Thank you
Good morning, Shannon! Our vacation was great, thanks in large part to your super planning. We had a great time and just wanted to thank you for putting it all together for us!
Riley, again, thank you for all your help regarding this latest mini vacation. Please tell your manager, that we booked this mini vacation thanks in large part to your helpfulness and knowledge. In fact, due to your expertise, what started out as one vacation a few months ago has now blossomed into 3 vacations. I would like everyone to know just how helpful you have been to make these vacations reality for us.
I would just like to take a moment to rave about Deanna Carrigan. She has helped me over the years put together Disney vacations. This year has been stressful trying to put together a Disney trip. But I luckily have Deanna in my corner! She has provided me with timely information and been a tremendous help in navigating the “new” Disney. I truly cannot express how valuable she has been to me this year. She has been amazing! Please recognize her somehow for providing fantastic customer service! She has a customer for life!
I just booked a Adventures By Disney trip with Small World Vacations’ agent, Minnie. She has been incredibly patient and answered all my questions. I tried to book with another agency and they kept raising the price and would not answer questions. Minnie is awesome!!
Hi Tracy! You have been so helpful in all the years that I have planned these vacations with my grandchildren and have totally taken the stress out of planning them. I will always recommend you when people ask for advise on planning a Disney World vacation
We have been dealing with Karen for years and she is the absolute best. She is uber responsive and has help up save literally thousands of dollars. I would HIGHLY recommend you ask for Karen by name!
To: Small World Vacations
I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know how great of a job Renee has done with booking a Disney cruise vacation for me and my family. She has gone above and beyond to be helpful and timely whenever I have contacted her. Renee explained the process of what it means for Disney to cancel our cruise, and then took the time to help us rebooked on a Disney cruise by the end of the day. This was the second rebooking Renee has helped us with, and in no way did she make me feel like it was an issue or I was a problem.
Thanks to Renee, I feel confident in my booking and that if I have any questions, she is right there ready to help. I will and have recommended Renee and Small World Vacations to my friends and family.
Have a magical day,
We had a WONDERFUL time on the Southern Caribbean Disney cruise. Best one yet! On the last night of our sailing, we were talking to a couple we met on the ship about this cruise and how long we had been planning it. They commented about how they had booked with Small World Vacations’ and agent Karen got them the FL deal and changed their booking once or twice for them. Turns out, we used Karen as our travel agent too! It’s crazy that two of her families met each other on the ship. They spoke very highly of her and said how they had recommended Karen to many of their friends. We felt very lucky that we contacted Small World Vacations and were partnered with Karen last year!
After Alissa saving this guest $412, his response to her was “And that right there is why I chose to use a TA. Saving me money before I’m even out of bed in the morning. Thanks so Much Alissa, you’re the best!”
Excerpt from The Point Guy article about booking a Disney Cruise:
We used the Cruise Compete website to start our cruise search, as that was an easy way to quickly compare multiple quotes with one request. It isn’t all about price with a cruise — it’s also about the stateroom credits and other perks that can amount to hundreds of dollars in value. Our decisions quickly came down to booking via Costco Travel or Small World Vacations. While we would have gotten a larger total credit (in the form of a Costco gift card) via Costco, I went with Small World Vacations this time, purely based on recommendations by friends.
I just wanted to put in a rave review regarding Small World Vacations’ agent Amber Vaughan. We have worked with her for a number of years now. She is always quick to respond, very helpful in setting up our trips, & goes above and beyond what we expect. SHE IS AWESOME!
Melanie has been absolutely phenomenal since day one of planning our long awaited Disney vacation! She is available when you need her, responds promptly to calls and emails and has made everything so easy for a first timer like myself. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to plan a Disney vacation!!
Hello, I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know what a wonderful job Small World Vacations’ agent, Steph is doing for us with our cruise! From the beginning she has been so helpful, as this is our first Disney Cruise. And once things started changing with all of the Covid-19 epidemic, she has kept us informed throughout the whole process. She always answers our emails immediately and is very knowledgeable about what the reality is! She is a super travel agent and I just wanted you to know. We will be rebooking our cruise with Steph once this whole virus mess is over. Steph is a wonderful reflection of the whole Disney attitude and friendliness. We are annual passholders to Walt Disney World, so we always appreciate the team members that keep up the Disney way! Thank you so much, Jennifer
I booked my family’s first Walt Disney World vacation with Small World Vacations, and they were amazing, our vacation was amazing! Amanda was our agent and I wouldn’t trade her for the world!! She made everything so comprehensive and easy!! She was the best and answered literally all of my questions no matter how small or how big they were. I look forward to booking our next vacation with Amanda as our agent!
We just returned home from a fantastic Disney getaway. Thanks to Lynne, everything from our arrival at Saratoga Springs to our ventures through the Wine and Food festival at Epcot and all worlds in between, we had a most spectacular vacation. Thank you for all the work you did on our behalf to make this a truly magical week. You are to be commended on how you handled our requests for specific housing and pricing. We will tell our friends of Small World Vacations and, specially, about you.
I recently booked a Disney holiday with Kathy and I have been absolutely amazed at her level of competence, her responsiveness and her desire to help. No question is too much and she is a pleasure to deal with. I will be recommending Small World Vacations to my friends because of this.
I can’t say enough good things about Small World Vacations, but mostly about your agent, Lori ! It is difficult in this world to find quality customer service, but with Lori I get worlds beyond “quality” even beyond Exceptional! THANK YOU!
I’ve worked with Lisa Felix since 2014 to plan our Disney Vacations, and will continue to do so. Lisa is incredibly responsive and relentless in her efforts to find us a great deal.
I am a very hands on planning type person and I have always planned our vacations. I decided this time to give you a try. Best thing I could have done. Beth was able to handle the booking part, which is the tedious part of the planning. Then she was able to get me free dining for my trip, which saved me a ton of money. She answered all my questions very promptly as well.
We have been using Cissy at Small World Vacations since 2006 for our Disney World and Disney Cruise vacations. She is the best! Cissy takes the time to answer every possible question and provide us with quick responses. Her insight and experience are so helpful when making decisions. I know that she can and will handle any problem that may arise, taking away any worries of our vacation planning. We have recommended Cissy to half of Cleveland! She is amazing! Thank you for the wonderful job and looking forward to planning our next Disney vacation!
Riley, thank you so much for everything you did. Scheduling the meals, explaining how to make our fast passes, we had the most amazing time ever! It was phenomenal! I just can’t express enough how thankful I am that you were able to take the most stressful planning vacation and make it the easiest thing I’ve ever done. You are amazing! Thank you again !!
I have been working with Jo at Small World Vacations for a number of years now she has been absolutely the best travel agent I have ever dealt with. She found some great deals for my Disney World trips and she is always there to answer any of my many questions. Thank you Jo for all that you’ve done to make our vacations the best!!!
Thank you to Jill for everything she did for us! Calling Small World Vacations was the best idea!
Just got back from Disney World and everything went perfectly. Big thanks to Lynne at Small World Vacations for not just booking the trip, but for taking endless calls and emails and explaining everything to me. Highly recommend Lynne & Small World Vacations.
Thanks to Kathy for all her help in planning our special trip. Disney can be overwhelming and time consuming but, her expertise and infinite patience took the stress out of the process and allowed us to sit back and relax. Kathy is a true professional and a credit to Small World Vacations! We really appreciate her hard work and look forward to working with Kathy again
I have traveled twice to Walt Disney World with Small World Vacations all the way from Australia. They are highly responsive, professional and highly consultative. I am thankful for our magical family vacations with them, always outstanding! Thank you Carly, and team.
I just wanted to give a shout out to Small World Vacations’ agent, Tanya. I am beyond amazed at the level of customer service she provides. On two separate occasions she has taken care of our Disney Cruise reservations even though she was on vacation with her family.
We had a wonderful time at Disney World. The girls met lots of characters (PRINCESSES!). We enjoyed watching Aladdin outside at the Caribbean resort and spent a few afternoons in the pool as well. By the end of our vacation we were all exhausted and happy as could be. Thanks to Jeanne for helping us have an amazing family get away.
We just wanted to express what an awesome Travel Agent Andrea Rollins is. We have always been pleased with her. Due to Hurricane Dorian our plans needed to be changed. Andrea went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. We highly recommend Andrea and Small World Vacations.
Hi, I just wanted to pass on how great our Florida trip was. Our travel agent was Amber Vaughan. You are very lucky to have her. Our trip went off without a hitch. I met a lot of people along the way who weren’t as fortunate. Amber arranged everything for us perfectly. I am a very nervous traveller but Amber had everything lined up for us which made a huge difference. Amber was always quick to respond and so helpful. I would have no problem at all recommending her and I definitely will to anyone who plans to visit Florida.
I have been working with Kelly to plan the trip since about June. She has been most helpful in everything Disney. She has answered all my questions and taken care of everything for us. From sending information and video’s to look at (AJ food blog). She always gets back to us quickly. You have a great employee working for you and she is very knowledgeable about her job. If there is something that can’t be done, she will explain why that is. I wanted to reach out and give a high recommendation for her work and all that she does. It has made this booking of the trip very easy and enjoyable. I love to do research about what we can do on every vacation we take. All that I needed was within reach. I have been to Disney back in 2002 and we booked through AAA. That company was not as giving as Kelly. They just took our money and let us do all the arrangements. Kelly was involved in our decisions and I feel she has our best interest at heart. Please pass on the email to those that are involved in her employment. I just can’t say enough good things about her and we are really looking forward to a stress free fun vacation. I will recommend her to anyone that I hear who is interested in a Disney vacation.
Angela with Small World Vacations is amazing. I’ve used her for several trips over the years, and have never been disappointed. She has saved my family THOUSANDS of dollars. She is always a joy to talk to, and answers my 2,583,374,483 questions quickly and efficiently. I am not joking when I say that Angela is my favorite person to receive email from. I cannot wait to begin the process of planning our next trip with her!!
Hi Kelly… We just got back from our Disney world trip and wanted to thank you for everything you did to make it magical. It truly was one of the best, most efficient and fun trips I have ever been on. The magic bands were absolutely flawless for us and we loved every minute of our trip. Thank you thank you thank you!!!. We continue to give your name out to everyone who asks about our trip. You’re the best.
Thanks to Lucy our family’s first trip to Disney was incredible! She gave us tons of excellent guidance on everything from the best way to manage our Fast Passes, to how and get the most out of our Dining Plan. Rides, character meetups, reservations, food …because of Lucy’s insight there wasn’t a single thing that we wanted to do that we weren’t able to do! Thank you so much Lucy!
Hi Jill! We appreciate your time and all of the effort that you have put into making our Walt Disney World trip a magical experience for us. It seems crazy to say so, but you’ve helped it to be magical even though so much of this has been up-in-the-air with the parks closing and things getting cancelled, etc.
I just wanted to let you know how amazing Karen Nunn was to work with. She answered all our questions and gave great recommendations. She also flawlessly worked with us through multiple changes as things came up beyond our control. I can’t thank her enough for everything she did!
Just booked my September Disney Cruise through Small World Vacations. Stephanie made the whole process super easy and got us exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend!
Hello. I would like to advise you of our great experience with Stephanie Page. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She helped us find the right accommodations for our family which really enhanced our stay. Steph sent us great information about fast passes and other tips that helped make our trip more enjoyable. She stayed in touch and was always ready to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend anyone to work with her for their next Disney trip.
My family and I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how satisfied we are with the exemplary service provided to us by Karen Nunn who has been helping us plan a trip to Disney for my family this summer. This is our 4th time using Karen at Small World Vacations and as usual, she has provided us with excellent service. She has been extremely timely and helpful in responding to my many inquiries and has also monitored my existing reservations and advised me of additional savings after my reservations were made. I have recommended her services to all of my friends and family who mention they are thinking of a Disney vacation and just wanted you to be aware of the positive experience she ensures each time we plan a trip to Disney. On behalf of my family, we want to express our appreciation to Karen for a job well done!
We booked our recent Walt Disney World vacation through Small World Vacations and had Ella as our agent. She was amazing and very helpful in making reservations, suggestions, etc. for me and my family. We will definitely be using Ella and Small World Vacations again!
I wanted to take a moment to share my sincere appreciation for our Small World Vacations’ agent, Kathy This is our fourth reservation with her, and due to current conditions the October 2021 cruise was no longer a viable option for our family. The window to modify our reservation fell during her vacation. We cruise with two special needs kids, so we need special assistance with selecting our stateroom. Kathy took time out of her vacation to help us modify to a later cruise date and to access the stateroom we needed. She is a gem and we are so appreciative of all she has done for us since first working with her in 2015
I worked with Small World Vacations’ agent, Carrie to plan a vacation for myself and two of my closest friends – and it was the first trip ever for one of them – and she made everything so simple and easy. She worked with us through every snag and schedule change, and I never had to worry about the back end details of our trip thanks to her excellent guidance and help. I really appreciate everything she did, and next time I go to Disney, I’ll definitely come back to to plan the trip thanks to the impact she made.
Sending a big THANK YOU to Steph for being so fantastic and helping me every step of the way! She is both friendly and professional, answered every question, made excellent suggestions, and I’m thrilled with the experience. Steph is outstanding!
Cheryl was an amazing resource! It had been seven years since our last trip to Walt Disney World. 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!
Hi Small World Vacations – I just wanted to say that I’ve used Melanie for the second year in a row and that my family and I think she is a fantastic agent and will definitely let all of our friends and family use her for any future vacations! Thank you Janet
I wanted to give a shout out to Caylie McCann. She is the most responsive and helpful travel agent I’ve ever worked with. COVID has caused lots of changes yet she has put up with all my questions and requests!
Hey there Cheryl! I’m so happy we didn’t cancel our trip because of COVID. I have to tell you that this was the most amazing trip I have had at Disney World. We didn’t even mind the masks and the temperature check was a piece of cake.
The wait times were unbelievable! We got on Flight of Passage in 16 minutes. The girls rode that ride 7 times! We got on Peter Pan’s Flight in 15 minutes. We got to ride Soarin’ 3 times. No lines. In less than one hour we rode Splash Mountain twice & Thunder Mountain Railroad once. We were spoiled!
We are planning on going again next year, but haven’t decided when yet. The pros far outweighed the cons. Once again Disney’s Cast Members far exceeded expectations! Thank you so much for all your help!
I would heartily recommend our agent, Tracy, for our upcoming family trip to Disney World. This is the first time we’ve ever used a travel agent. The experience has been amazing. Not only the service she provides and the instant updates about special offers, discounts, etc. but the kind and professional spirit in which she works. She is prompt in returning emails and always so very helpful. We’re not “Disney experts” by any means so I’ve sent her several emails with pesky questions, asking her opinion about things, etc. In each response, I feel she went over and above to give me detailed and thoughtful answers and touring tips.
Renee has been helping me plan a special vacation for my family by helping me figure out what I wanted to do. She is knowledgeable about everything that I ask. Also, I have had to make several changes along the way. I always feel so bad when I need to make a change, but Renee is always so helpful and nice about it and quickly provides me with information. I always hear from her within 24 hours…usually less. I am already thinking about my next vacation and would want no one other than Renee to help me. She’s great!
Lisa is fantastic! She is professional, friendly, quick to respond and knowledgable. We had questions regarding which category of resort to go with (namely, what’s the real difference between value and moderate resort categories– pool and bed size). She sent us quotes for several resorts and included information about which ones are undergoing construction. When we chose our resort, the booking and deposit were seamless. She took care of everything and sent our confirmation. She was also very helpful in planning FastPass reservations. I hadn’t been to Disney in many years and wasn’t sure which rides generally have the longest wait times. She sent information for each park and we were very happy with our selections once we arrived at the parks. She followed up prior to our departure to ensure we had her phone number in case of issues (there were none) and once again when we were home. Disney is magical, but planning for it can be overwhelming and she removed so much of the stress. A true professional and we look forward to working with her again!
I’ve used Minnie at Small World Vacations for my Disney World vacation and will only use this company.. I tell everyone who is planning a Disney vacation to use them.. I have never been disappointed and highly recommend them.
Thank you so much Tracy, we really appreciate your support and working with you has made this a much less stressful process than I think it would have been had we been dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak on our own 🙂
Deanna – You are very kind and helpful for us. We count on you, and appreciate … in every sense of that word … what you do for us.
I wanted to give a big “Disney Kudos” to Caylie in working so well with our family to make our Disney vacation stress free. She helped me to the right choice when it came to our dining plan. Caylie was very professional and very easy to work with. We were well prepared for our magical trip because of her guidance and experience.
Hi Jill – I really cannot thank you enough for your kindness, knowledge, and help! Thank you, as well, for being so phenomenal with communication!!! Massive quantities of gratitude for you while everyone makes plans for next steps! 🌻
Small World Vacations was mentioned in a recent article on MSN entitled “19 Expensive Mistakes to Avoid at Disney” by Andrew Lisa. Here is what the author said about using a travel agent to book your Disney Vacation:
“Travel agents might feel antiquated in the era of of travel comparison sites that let anyone shop the best rates with just a few clicks — but Disney is different. Through the College of Disney Knowledge program, Disney has created a network of travel agents who specialize Disney-specific vacations. They’re free to use — Disney pays them, and you don’t — and they’re far more likely to find the best and most up-to-date discounts than a layperson. Small World Vacations is among the best in the business.”
Lisa’s services were wonderful and I am so glad I was referred to her. She made this trip so much easier to prepare for. I would have been completely overwhelmed by everything, and Lisa made it very manageable. I would gladly refer her services to anyone who is taking a trip to Disney in a heartbeat. We don’t have a new trip planned, as we need to recover from this one. It was definitely exhausting lol When we are ready to go again, she will most definitely be hearing from me. Thank you again to Lisa for all her help!!!
I wanted to write in and express my gratitude for my travel agent Lulu and her backup Angela. Both of these women have made my vacation planning process so easy! Lulu has taken care of all my Disney Cruises and has always worked to handle any requests I had. She responds quickly and does an amazing job – she has earned our business for life!!! Recently a Florida resident rate became available for our 10/9/21 sailing and while Lulu was on vacation, I reached out to her backup Angela. Angela did the legwork to see what the best option was for us to get the best deal and saved us $1000! We were able to take that money and put it towards the next cruise we were planning. We are simply elated with these two women and their customer service. They make vacation planning so easy, and I am always encouraging friends and family to work with them! They truly are gems!!
My name is Joy and my granddaughter is Kinlee. We just wanted to thank Small World Vacations, especially Stephanie, for helping with our trip! I was stressed & overwhelmed, to say the least! Stephanie guided me through the entire process smoothly & efficiently & we can not thank her enough! She was able to save us money along the way which was a bonus! I will be recommending Small World Vacations to all of my family & friends!!!!!
Leigh has been so incredibly helpful in planning our trip! We’ll definitely be using Small World Vacations for all of our future Disney trips
I just wanted to share some thoughts I shared with your super agent, Lynne. She represents your company in the best way possible. I am very grateful for her “take ownership” type of service, her easy expertise and most of all her warm and friendly manner. I’d say Lynne is a “keeper” 5 out of 5 Stars rating.
Lynne and all of you at Small World Vacations deserve acknowledgement of your good work and the wonderful way in which you do it. You guys really do touch people’s lives. To me, it’s like when Tinker Bell sprinkles her pixie dust on someone and then they can fly. Your great work, planning what has become an extraordinarily complex and daunting vacation, enables us, your clients, to fly too. We fly around WDW, due in large measure, to the arrangements that you’ve made and the wise, personalized advice hat you have given us. Our vacation experience is profoundly enhanced beyond my inadequate ability to express it. I can only say, thanks to all of you for all that you do.
I know that all of you will keep doing your wonderful work the way that you do it now, because you don’t know any other way to go about it. Thanks for the magical memories.
Kersie- this email is long overdue! I wanted to THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me plan such an amazing trip to Disney World for my family. There was not a moment through the whole process that so felt like I wasn’t being supported, you were there to help guide our adventure and make it perfect!! Your customer service was above and beyond magical!!! You listened to what we wanted, you searched it out and made it happen! The hotel and room recommendation was spectacular, the park schedule was spot on, the airport to hotel transportation made it
seem-less. I can’t wait to plan our next Disney adventure with you!!! Hopefully you have/will receive some referral calls because I brag about how wonderful you are.
We love Heather. Always helpful and friendly with every trip she books for us. I’ve lost count how many trips we have used Heather at Small World Vacations
Hi Melanie – You set up our vacation so perfectly that all I can say, is how much I appreciated the time and commitment that you put into our vacation and every detail was surely noticed by me. I wanted to give my girls a vacation that they would remember long after I’m gone and boy did you deliver. I cannot thank you enough for what you have given them and me. Not only was it worth every dollar, but it was worth every smile and memory. Thank you, God Bless and know that you are forever in my prayers. You are truly one of the best.
We just got back home from our 1st Disney Family Vacation! If it wasn’t for our Small World Vacations agent, Julia, our trip wouldn’t have been a success. Our agent patiently made our changes for three families go smoothly and stress-free. Thank you for making our Disney Family Vacation MAGICAL! Your customer service was on point, reliable, and just perfect!
Cheryl at Small World Vacations is an absolute DREAM to work with. She handles everything and answers any question you may have. She even stayed in contact while she was on vacation to let us know that she would handle our requests once she returns. GREAT job Small World! We will be using you again in the future.
Thanks for all your help. We are super grateful for all you did to go above/beyond to make the trip magical 🙂
Our family trip meant so much and I appreciate all that Heather did for us. It was a wonderful vacation, and you made the experience possible by adjusting our reservation every time a new discount was available. It was the last vacation I ever took with my mother. She had a great time, and she spoke about it often. Thank you for helping make those memories possible.
We wanted to write to you to tell you how much we appreciate the great job that Heather Garrett has done for us in booking multiple Disney World and Disney Cruise trips. We’ve been using Heather since 2014 or 2015. She’s always been on point in getting the reservations we asked for, and has always been very responsive to any questions that we send. She’s a tremendous asset to your company. Her knowledge, attentiveness, and overall attitude are fantastic. We love dealing with her, and will continue to use her as our travel agent for Disney vacations.
Just got back and everything went perfectly. Big thanks to Lynne for not just booking the trip, but for taking endless calls and emails and explaining everything to me. Highly recommend Lynne & Small World Vacations.
I just worked with Marion at Small World Vacations to book my family’s first cruise ever! She was so helpful and very knowledgeable about ! I was a little nervous booking, since I’ve never even been on a cruise before, let alone a Disney Cruise, but with her help I know I booked the best Disney Cruise for my family! I’m also the person that asks a 1,000 questions and she responded to everyone of them right away! Thank you!
Leigh from Small World Vacations has been SO fantastic with helping plan our vacation. Not only is she incredibly professional and organized but has given us amazing recommendations. She has always been on top of things for us and follows up, typically within 24 hours. She made me feel like I was her only client and that every detail was perfect. I cannot stress enough how wonderful it has been to work with her and will continue to recommend her to my circle of family and friends.
Sherri was efficient, prompt and pleasant in all of her interactions which made me feel like I was her one and only focus. Sherri made my busy life easier, as I know that sending one email to her and she gets everything done by magic. Thank you to Sherri and Small World Vacations for taking care of me and my family!
Hi guys, Meredith helped plan mine and my boyfriends vacation, and we could not have done it without her. We booked our flight a week before covid hit, and for 6 months were unsure whether or not we were even going to go. Meredith kept us up to date with every change and detail Disney was making, she answered my thousands of questions and emails, and her response time was the most impressive ever. The world was definitely a scary, and uncertain time, and Meredith walked us through everything with such ease, and allowed us to have the most incredible birthday/first time experience in Disney. We will 100% reach out again in the future, for our next vacation trip. Small World Vacations seems like the best kept secret that needs to be shout out to the world! Amazing job. Thanks again for everything you did. Much love, Brittany & Ramon
I wanted to take a moment and RAVE about a wonderful associate of yours. Her name is Marion, and she has made my Disney vacation a breeze. She is professional, polite, patient, prompt, knowledgeable, kind, literally everything you would want in a travel agent. This is my first Disney trip EVER so, initially, we were a bundle of nerves. I was stunned. Literally 98% of the stress and work I would have had to do….she already did! Plus, she saved us $1000! If I could see Marion in person, I would give her the biggest hug ever – THANK YOU!
I just wanted to reach out and say how grateful we are to Cheryl Murphey. I just booked my families 3rd trip through her and she has made every experience very easy and exciting. Great customer service and knowledge, I am sure I will be calling again next year to book #4. Thank you again.
Jill was very helpful in planning our daughter’s first trip to Disney to celebrate her birthday. She gave us many suggestions to our vacation outstanding. I really appreciate the time and efforts she went through to make our vacation exactly what we wished for. Thank you for our magical vacation!
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to your agent, Dawn Speno. I have been working with her for several months now in planning a special Disney World vacation for my three grandchildren. She has given us amazingly prompt, courteous, and skilled service throughout our planning process. Our vacation had to be rescheduled due to the Coronavirus closure but despite the high volume of communication that must have choked her inbox, she got back to me the very same day (which happened to be on a weekend) and rearranged our plans for us — ultimately saving us over $1000 in the process. I am a retired high school teacher and have been saving up for years to finance this trip for my grandchildren thus a savings of this magnitude is greatly appreciated.
Kristina at Small World Vacations 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 for your Disney Vacation.
Sandy – I just want you to know you’ve been in my thoughts a lot with everything that’s going on in our world, and specifically Disney. I know this is a stressful time for you and your industry. I hope you and your family are doing well and are staying healthy. Even though we’ve never met in person, you hold a special place in my heart for all the magical vacations you’ve helped create for my family over the many years you’ve been our travel agent. Here’s looking forward to a great big beautiful tomorrow for all of us! Take care, and we hope to be planning again soon. 🙂
Mandy booked our recent Disney vacation and we really enjoyed our stay. Throughout our vacation if we had questions she would message back promptly to help guide us along the way. None of us had ever been to Disney before so her guidance was a big help.
I have booked several Disney vacations with Leslie at Small World. She has so much knowledge of where to stay, eat and full of fun and different things to do each time we visit. She is also diligent about monitoring discounts that become available and has saved us money after booking on more than one occasion. I don’t want to plan a Disney vacation without her.
I worked with Caylie a couple of years ago on our Universal Studios vacation. She was AMAZING! So amazing that I have just emailed her to help me plan our next vacation. Oh how I am so glad that she is still working with Small World Vacations and able to help me this time around too!
Diana at Small World Vacations is amazing!!! First she made sure that my sons honeymoon was perfect. Then she helped me plan a difficult vacation. So kind! i probably contacted her 20+ times and she was always patient, kind, and helpful. Thanks!
Hi Jo! Thank you so much for everything you have done to help us through the many changes due to COVID. I know how frustrating it has been for us let alone for you with our constant emails and phone calls. You are the BEST and we really appreciate that you have gone above and beyond for us.
We took our 4 princesses to Walt Disney World despite some unexpected setbacks that almost canceled our trip. We have Dawn to thank for that because she went above and beyond for us. Our family is extremely grateful to her for going the extra mile to help us share wonderful memories with our daughters. Thank you!
Hi Marion – Thanks for your amazing dedication to helping everyone’s dreams come true during the busiest, most vacation-changing time EVER! Hope you are able to take a breath soon!
Lulu, with Small World Vacations is absolutely amazing. I feel I have been calling and emailing her constantly in the last few weeks. We booked a last minute Disney Cruise with her a few weeks ago. She was wonderful with handling all of the booking details. The onboard credit is a fantastic offering. I also sent Lauren on a mission yesterday to find us a Walt Disney World vacation at the lowest price possible. I told her we can go anytime because we homeschool. Today I had a quote in my email with several dates and prices. I can not speak any more highly of this company. This was the first time I have ever used a travel agent. I LOVE planning things on my own, but using SWV saved me the headache of dealing with dates and pricing, and allows me to focus on the fun stuff like picking out dining options!!!
