Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

This was a multigenerational trip to Disney World over spring break. There were seven of us, my son, his wife and our 3 grandsons, ages 4 to 7. The thought of planning a Disney trip was daunting, as disney has become complicated to negotiate. The thought of the spring break crowds and 3 very active and somewhat impatient children certainly gave us second thoughts. We have used WOW List planners for a number of European trips and so glad we decided on using Michelle Allen for this. When we returned home our friends could not believe we had a totally stress-free Disney trip. It was really a vacation.

Our planner listened carefully about the experience we were looking for and recommended the best accommodations for our needs. We knew we wanted some chill days and didn’t want 24/7 Disney bombardment.The Riviera resort was perfect and beautiful. My son and family had a 2-bedroom villa and we had a one-bedroom. Very large, pretty and super clean. It was also right on the Skyliner. I was very impressed that before the trip any question I had was responded to almost immediately either by phone or email. Their suggestions for dinner were spot-on and they made the reservations for us (though a pizza nite in our villa turned out to be a good break one night). They also arranged a fishing outing at the resort next to us as our 7-year-old had been eager to catch some fish, which he did in the fully stocked bass lagoon.

By far the best recommendation and explanation they gave us was about the Disney VIP Guide. While it is very pricey, it made the difference in the trip. We planned on visiting the parks 3 days of our week trip and used the guide for each park day. No lines, no trying to figure out the lightning lane passes…water, snacks, ice cream magically appeared, and our wonderful guide would go on the rides with one of the boys if my husband or I didn’t want to. We were able to go on every ride we wanted to (some twice) in the course of three days. We got the park hopper and because we were being transferred in their van, there was no time wasted changing parks. We all felt very spoiled!!

What a seamless trip we had. I believe we could never do it ourselves. It is our trip to explore theme parks in Orlando.

The planning with Michelle was fun, and they delivered everything very well.

We are not Americans. As everyone knows, Disney World is massive and there are lots of tricks to make your visit efficient. Michelle and her team, LindaMarie and LisaMarie, made our trip easy. For a first timer, you wouldn’t know where to start, where to stay, eat, what to see or ride, etc, because the parks are so big and information is overwhelming.

From the moment we arrived at Orlando Airport, until the end of our trip, they arranged our transportation service with a reputable operator.

We stayed at Disney Polynesian Resort which is the right choice for us, it has direct monorail access to go to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and other resorts where we had various dinners. They picked and made reservations at great restaurants for dinners. Everything was scheduled perfectly and all you need to do is just check the Disney app where all your programs were already installed.

We took the Disney VIP Tours for one day, and we loved it, so we can explore more theme parks with priority access. Michelle requested a specific VIP guide, Elton, for us, and it turned out to be our highlight of the trip. He is very energetic, full of positive energy, and a whole lot of fun.

Thank you for the hard work.

Michelle and her team are simply the best! We were rather late booking our trip to Walt Disney World and did not realize that it was actually the start of Spring Break. Michelle quickly scheduled a call so she could understand our priorities, including any difficult-to-get bookings for character breakfast, a hotel with access to the monorail and preferred seating. Since we were late to the game, Michelle and her team kept checking on the Disney site after we confirmed and managed to snag everything we wanted for our short trip. This is the second time we used her team for a Disney vacation — and we are just as delighted as last time. Michelle et al take the stress out of any Disney trip!

Michelle and her team simply are the BEST when it comes to Orlando fun parks! Their advice is spot-on for everything from restaurants to hotels to parties, etc. On our last trip, we tackled Universal with a one-day Disney guide. This time we went guide-free at Disney and hit 3 parks in 2 very full days. We loved every minute of it! This is an example of how Michelle and her team go above and beyond — towards the end of Day 1 we were stuck in a slower-then-anticipated line and worried we’d miss a reservation at Ogas Cantina. Assuming I probably wouldn’t get an answer (it was Dec. 21, towards the end of the day), I called Michelle’s office for a little advice. They picked up and helped me out immediately! Love these hard-working folks. Thanks so much, Michelle and team, for your help on another great Orlando vacation!
