An Ode to Disney Vacation Planning

Disney vacation planning poem

OK, I admit.  A poem might seem a little strange.  But sometimes you get a slighty strange idea after thinking too long about something, and, well, my strange idea came in the form about planning a Disney trips.   And with that, I bring you this little piece of fun:


“To Disney!” she declared, it would be so much fun
for her little girl and her dear son.
She sat down at her computer full of glee,
So excited to plan just how her trip would be.
But much to her surprise, what did she find?
So much information she might lose her mind.
Where should she stay and how to decide?
Perhaps my trusty facebook friends can help, she sighed.
So out to facebook, she sent out a plea:
I’m trying to go to Disney, please help me!
What should happen but a hundred answered fast –
But none could agree which resort was first or last.

Enough of this, she thought, I’ll just choose and be done,
How hard can it be to plan a vacation full of fun?
So that was that and she thought she’d call it a night,
But just a few weeks later she caught a great fright.
What is this? She exclaimed, something about dining?
Choose from over 100 so soon? she began whining.
And what is this about crowds, how should I know?
When and to which park I should go?
And what about rides and this new Fast Pass plus.
And how do I get around, what’s all this about a bus?
This was no fun at all, she was starting to stress,
She was starting to worry this would be one big mess.
She picked out some dining and some rides each day, too
And resolved that was it, with that she would make do.

Some months later, the family arrived ready for fun,
And here they go, to the park at 11am on day one!
Where should they start, they pondered…anything should be fine!
But alas they came upon only long line after line.
By that afternoon, they were hot and they were sticky,
This felt less than magical and really more icky.
They pushed on, grumbling at each hot, long wait
But, she supposed, when you go to Disney that’s your fate.
So many questions she hadn’t thought to ask before
But who would she have asked who could know any more?
Soon, it was all over, and the trip was, well….ok.
It wasn’t bad, she just hadn’t imagined it that way.

When she got home, she told the story to her friend
All about the stress and the long days and when she got to the end…
Her friend looked at her in shock and began to moan,
“Oh dear, did you try to plan it all on your own?!
But my dear, I could have referred you to the best,
Someone who takes care of it all and lets you rest!”
The lesson, my friends, is really quite clear,
It’s doesn’t have to be this way – The Enchanted Traveler is here!
DIY can be tons of fun – until it’s not!
But have no fear, we’re here to help you a lot.
From the first moment you decide that you want to go,
To dining, activities, custom itineraries and shows.

So heed this tale of caution and woe –
There’s a better way to plan it, and now you know!

how to plan a disney world vacation


12,600,000.  That’s how many results you get when you search “how to plan a Disney World vacation” on Google.

We live in an age of information at our finger tips.  Our trouble is no longer how to access information on any given topic.  We can, in fact, find information on just about anything in less than 3 seconds.  The trouble now, instead, is how to sift through too much information.  There are thousands of reviews on yelp.  Thousands of blog articles on any given topic.  A million opinions on any topic you’d like to research.

And Disney vacations are no exceptions.  You can search google for how to plan and get those 12,600,000 results – a lot of them may disagree with each other.  You can read thousands of reviews for any given Disney resort, Disney restaurant or Disney activity.  You’ll have to piece together for yourself which reviewers have common sense, which of them are trolls, which of them just had a bad day, and which of them maybe have the same tastes as you.  You can join fan boards and read thousands upon thousands of posts that are broken down into tiniest detailed topics – full of people arguing over who is right or which rumor is definitely true.

The internet is an amazing tool – full of endless information you could read for a lifetime.  But when everything in our lives is so full of information, at some point some if it all starts to feel like noise.  It starts to be a burden to have to start the process of research and sift through such enormous options of sources.

So it’s ok to feel overwhelmed if you decided you want to take a Disney vacation, only to stare blankly at your computer screen when it comes time to figure out how it will all work.  It’s ok to get frustrated at all the different answers you’ll find.  And it’s completely understandable when you think it all should be easier than this.

That’s essentially the entire point of a business like the one I own.  The service provided by an expert on Disney destinations, whose primary job it is to customize a trip to your specific wants and needs by extensively knowing the offerings to choose from and which best suit you, is one that eliminates this information overload.  It simplifies the process.  It erases the noise and brings everything down to one easy level: what the best options are for YOU.

The endless stream of information is in no way unique to planning a Disney vacation – but it’s the one area that I know I can help make sense of for you.  Cut through the noise – have a specialist narrow it all down to what you need to hear, what choices you actually need to make, and what’s most important to you.  THEN planning a vacation can be fun and stress free – unlike the 12,600,000 options you can sift through on your own.
