Here we are at dinner the first night the kids arrived. We are sending a big THANK YOU to our travel agent, Terri Amundson.
Well, the kid are off and running with a great start to their vacation. Here is the point where I have to give credit to "Small World Vacations", which is the travel agency we used to plan everything. I found a recommendation for them on an online newsletter I get monthly, Mousesavers.com.
Although we've never used a travel agent for previous trips to WDW, I thought I would give it a try this time. I contacted Small World via the internet and they connected me with our own personal agent, Terri Amundson. Terri actually works from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area so everything we did was over e-mails or direct phone conversations. It worked beautifully!
We began planning about 15 months prior to the beginning of our trip, which is a little early but we had "big plans". First of all, Bruce and I needed to be booked into the Fort Wilderness Campground for 25 nights...with a Premium campsite in a dog loop....complete with Disney Dining Plan. OK..done! Then we needed to find the kids a room at the Contemporary Hotel. We didn't want to pay the price of a room in the tower section so Terri needed to get us a room for them in the Garden Wing for 14 nights. OK...done, with an Annual Pass discount plus Disney Dining Plan. Next she helped us secure dining reservations at some of the most popular restaurants here at WDW. OK...done!
There was plenty of e-mail communication and Terri always informed us on details along the way. She even contacted us by e-mail once we arrived to make sure that everything was as we had planned. Terrific service.
If anyone of you reading this message want to plan a Disney vacation of any kind, I suggest you send Terri Amundson an e-mail and get something going. Small World Vacations specializes in everything "Disney" so they can probably plan a Disney cruise for you or a trip to Disneyland in Paris is you so desire. Our motorhome cannot drive to Paris, France so Disney World and Disneyland in Anaheim will have to be enough for us.
