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. Additionally sponsoring Inside the Magic, they help make it possible we can share the Magic of Disney with you. Furthermore, 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. 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.

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.

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.
