About our Prize Sponsor

Destinations to Travel owner Shannon Bonadurer and her team of 80+ agents have helped create magical memories for thousands of Disney guests.  They have also been a frequent sponsor of Inside the Magic, supporting our work of sharing the Disney Magic with you.  I can also personally attest to the professionalism and integrity Shannon and her team bring to the business.

Destinations to Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  Essentially this means Disney has vetted Destinations to Travel and is willing to associate their brand with the knowledge and service level you will find at Destinations to Travel.  As you can probably imagine, this is a big deal as Disney emphasizes stellar service above all else. As such, they have high standards as to with whom they will partner.

Destinations to Travel’s specialized knowledge can help you with FastPass+, Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs), special or seasonal events, discounts, and so much more.  Best of all, when you use Destinations to Travel to book your vacation, you don’t pay any extra fees or commissions.  In fact, most people will save money with the assistance of a Destinations to Travel agent because they know of discounts and vacation packages of which many are unaware.

In the spirit of the Halloween season, say your goal is to see the Headless Horseman while at Walt Disney World.  Destination to travel will explain what options you have and make sure you have any necessary reservations, tickets, or simply the proper understanding of PhotoPass.

Halloween Party

For those of us who have been to Walt Disney World or Disneyland numerous times, we easily forget how complicated and overwhelming booking that first Disney vacation can be.  But the advantage of working with Destinations to Travel isn’t just for first-time guests.

Frequent vacationers enjoy the freedom to avoid setting their alarm for those hard-to-book ADR or FastPass+ reservations.  Routinely, Destinations to Travel works on behalf of its clients, making those reservations for them.  This is all part of being an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  They are there to assist you through each step of the vacation planning process.

Another all too common scenario is for those guests who have specific knowledge of either Walt Disney World or Disneyland and incorrectly assume the other destination is the same.  For instance, Good Neighbor Hotels surrounding Disneyland offer quick convenient access that nearly rival Disney owned resorts simply due to proximity to the parks.  But Walt Disney World covers such a large area and guests who are familiar with Disneyland may not intuitively understand how the additional value in the Boardwalk, for instance, which is a destination to itself with shopping, entertainment, and nightlife.

Other Disney Travel Destinations

Another common reason someone might choose to work with Destinations to Travel is so they can experience a Disney Destination that is further outside of their comfort zone.

If your travel plans take you to one of Mickey’s international homes in France, Japan, or either of the two in China, Destinations to Travel expertise and service can alleviate some of the uncertainty inherent in international travel.  As we shared in our comprehensive review of Disneyland Paris, the travel logistics alone are a unique aspect of a trip such as this.

Beyond the theme park, Disney caters to your travel needs with Adventures by Disney.  Not all Authorized Disney Vacation Planners can say they have first-hand experience outside of the domestic theme parks, but Destinations to Travel can.

Recently, Shannon experienced an Adventures by Disney trip to Germany.  She gave us insight into this incredible trip back in August in this report we featured on our Facebook page.

Our travel agency partner Destinations To Travel is in Germany. Take a look at their experience & learn more about taking your own Adventures by Disney vacation.

Posted by Inside the Magic on Saturday, August 11, 2018

We also shared this look at the Adventures by Disney trip to Ireland, another one of the amazing Adventures by Disney locations.  So if an Adventures by Disney trip catches your fancy, let Destinations to Travel give you a no-obligation quote and answer any questions you may have.

You have read Inside the Magic’s Inside the Magic of Disney Resorts and Cruise Line’s Halloween Celebrations, right?

If so, you know Disney Cruise Lines has special holiday sailings that are incredible.  For example, each of the Disney Cruise ships (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder and Disney Magic) has its very own unique “Mysterious Pumpkin Tree” during Halloween.

Or maybe you weren’t aware.  As much as we hope our readers read everything we publish, we understand that isn’t possible.

Finally, another bucket list non-theme park Disney destination is Aulani.  Personally, I believe Aulani is the very best of any non-theme park Disney destination.  For the ultimate vacation experience, paradise awaits you in Aulani resort in Hawaii.

Located on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, Aulani is easily Oahu’s finest resort far surpassing the best that Waikiki Beach or anything else on the Island.  But in my experience, I will take it one step further and say it exceeds anything you can find on any of the Hawaiian Islands.

Listen to Imagineers Joe Rohde and Jeanette Lomboy along with Vice President of Aulani Djuan Rivers explain exactly how Disney is able to share Hawaii’s culture and stories through the Aulani resort.

With so many destinations to visit, working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner can be so much more than you see on the surface.  Do yourself a favor and give Destinations to Travel a chance to provide a free quote or answer any questions on the vacation of your dreams.  Remember you don’t pay extra for all of the extra services they provide.

  22. Janet Kelly

    I always think of the Magic Kingdom first. As a teenager, it was our go to place when we saved the money. I was in my high school band and each year we voted on a trip. Disney World one many times. Our band would play a couple sets in a concert and then Memory’s were made. Went many times as my children were growing up but I dream of going back to enjoy many of the exhibits that as an older adult would enjoy. I only wish price wise, more families could afford to go to take their kids.

  23. Mike Smart

    Why is Transportation and food not included? Other sweepstakes include transportation if the winner is outside a certain mileage range.

  24. Terri Vasquez

    Never been would be a blessing to win an amazing vacation to Walt Disney World.

  25. Katie

    What an amazing opportunity!! There is nothing like visiting Walt Disney World and seeing it through my children’s eyes!!

  32. Pamela

  41. Jennifer Waters

    Was never able to take my kids to Disney. I’ve been to Disney World once when I was 12. Always wanted to go back or to Disneyland CA!

  42. Pam

    My mother’s wish was to go to Walt Disney during Christmas time, she promised my son she’d take him this year and passed away unexpectedly in February. I would love to honor this promise she made and to my son and for him to feel like even with her physical being gone she is still very much with us. And I grew up at Disney it’s our happy place, so many magical memories with my mother there.

  43. ZachKaycie Hughes

    I have never had the chance to go to Disney World so I would have to say Disney Land was my favorite! I remember riding on a log ride, front row with my dad, picture taking of us going downhill! They sang the song Zippidee DoDa ZippiDee Yay. My oh my what a wonderful day. I remember wearing my favorite striped shirt and orange overalls and getting my picture taken with Cinderella! I remember a ride with an abominable snowman and going round and round all the way down. Maybe called the matterhorn? I was there when I was 7 and am now 25 years old. It just shows how much of an impact these destinations actually make on your life. I have a son now who I hope more than anything I will be able to take him to Disney World and even get to experience it for myself. I have always wanted to go. Just dont think our family could afford it as I was growing up. What a wonderful opportunity to give to someone! Even if I dont win I’m still blessed with my little family and will try my best to be able to take my son before he gets to my age now. And goodluck to everyone out there! This would really be a magical come true. I would also like to Reccomend, if that’s okay, Amanda Moore who is a travel planner for Disney! She is very sweet and sincere and will do anything and everything to ensure your family has a wonderful trip!

  69. Kristina

    My family loves Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, and Magic Kingdom area resorts.

  70. Kristina

    Dude, ITM doesn’t have to give away anything at all. They could just continue to pump out amazing content and never partner for a sweepstakes at all. Saying that they should give transportation costs and food in addition to park tickets and a Disney resort stay is kind-of like asking a kid at the lemonade stand if you can have the whole pitcher of lemonade for the price of the cup. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Just drink the cup of lemonade, dude. 🍋💛

  71. Toni Ayuso

    We LOVE Disney World Florida, but also really enjoyed California Adventure Land as well 🙂

  72. Jim

    Walt Disney World

  73. Michele Bads

    Hello! Very excited about your giveaway and happy to share and help out Rome tevyour dites. I want to earn bonus entries but unable to get back to that page for the FB, Pinterest, etc after trying to link up to Twitter. Please help! I must be doing something wrong?? Thanks!

  74. Kurt Schmidt

    Michele Thanks for entering our giveaway and sorry to hear your having troubles on getting those extra entries. I just checked your Lucky URL and it is working. Therefore I assume the only issue is connecting your social media accounts.

    As far as getting into the entry form for those bonus entries please go to the main entry page: and scroll to the bottom (be sure to click Read More to open the full article). You will need to re-enter your information which should auto populate for you.

    This will connect you to your specific profile and you can continue earning bonus entries. Likewise each subsequent day if you want to earn the daily bonus entry do the same steps, but to make it a little easier we’ve added the link to the page on the daily newsletter so you can click on that link instead of searching for it each day.

    Another possible error that can come up is connecting to Twitter, Pinterest, etc but your not logged into those accounts. A quick method that works for me is when on a desktop I open a new tab and log into those accounts before you click on the link. Personally I haven’t had the issue on when accessing from mobile, but if you do I’m sure something similar should work as well.

    Hope this helps and let us know if you continue to have any problems. Good Luck!!

    Hi! Read your article on ‘Alternative Disney Tickets’, suggested ideas sound great. For myself, I especially liked The Disney Park Club, for $2000 you get a annual week-long park-hopper with water parks for ten years. I will cross my fingers, maybe it can become a reality in the future.😃
