What Amanda's Clients Are Saying!

 

I am normally the planner in our family but could never have done this as well without Amanda’s expert help! It was so nice to relax and know she had every detail planned, booked, and communicated to us perfectly. Her daily plan, organization of our dining reservations and fast passes, and her tips she shared on our call before the trip, made everything go so smoothly once we got to Disney. Can’t wait to refer Amanda to others! Thank you Amanda!

-D.Family

This was our first Disney Cruise. I wanted it to be special for our entire family (adult children and 3 grand daughters). Amanda walked me through each step to ensure we had all of the information we needed to make it a truly wonderful, magical vacation! She was easy to work with either through e-mail or over the phone. I would not hesitate to use her again!

-H. Family

Amanda really made our vacation stress free and she utilized all our time perfectly!!! We highly recommend going thru her, she is worth every penny!!!

-M. Family

I could not say enough about the service Amanda provided, from reserving the right resort to helping me choose the right meal reservations to setting an itinerary. This was a much anticipated vacation after my husbands military deployment, we included not only our family but both sets of grandparents. Amanda’s assistance made me look like a total rockstar and saved me many hours of research and planning. I wouldn’t do a Disney vacation any other way! She was my secret weapon in creating memories of a lifetime and the desire to go back and do it again!

-J. Family

We are so glad we decided to work with Amanda and Living with the Magic as it made our trip so fun and stress free. We had such an amazing time and the kids absolutely loved it! We would have been so lost and overwhelmed without Amanda’s help. It was like having our own personal travel agent every step of the way. Amanda was always available to answer our questions and walk us through every step including planning the vacation, booking our resort, meals and rides, and walking us through our daily itinerary step by step. Her careful planning helped us maximize our time in each of the parks and make the most out of our vacation. This was honestly one of the, if not the best vacations we have ever been on. Thank you again so much!

-B. Family

Our trip was perfectly planned and we have Amanda to thank! We have a diverse party of nine and we all had a wonderful time together. We can’t wait to plan another trip! On our trip, we heard strangers say things like, “Oh we tried to get into Ohana three months ago but couldn’t get reservations” and I got to tell them that my travel agent did all that half a year before! Thank you Living with the Magic Vacations!

-Melissa S.

Amanda is TERRIFIC! She is so knowledgable about what to do and see, and we loved that she tailored our trip perfectly for our family. We have 2 bigger kids who love rides, and two smaller kids that don’t. Amanda’s recommendations were perfect to make everyone happy. This is the first time we used fast passes and they were a lifesaver. My son was delighted to meet Buzz Lightyear after we used our fast pass on the Buzz ride– it was priceless to see his face light up! My oldest was thrilled to beat the big Snow White roller coaster line with our fast pass! Also important to mention: I was having trouble with something while in the park and Amanda not only responded to me quickly, she helped me get it resolved and even checked in later to make sure everything was going great. That’s customer service that you really can’t find these days! I would absolutely book another Disney World trip with Amanda at Living With The Magic!

As an aside, I will say that coming over spring break was a little overwhelming with the crowds. It was a lot more waiting for things than my kids were able to handle. The only rides we did each day were the ones that Amanda had set up fast pass for. I would love to do the trip again when crowds are better so we can really enjoy all the magic that is Disney World!

-Catherine H.

My family and I had a MAGICAL trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando. Amanda took care of every detail before and during our trip. Traveling with 4 young children can be tricky, but Living with the Magic helped alleviate a lot of the stress. We loved our trip and will be booking another one ASAP.
Thank you, Amanda!

-Jennifer B.

Amanda is AMAZING! She made our first trip to Disney World so enjoyable and relaxing. She answered all my questions at every point in the process, and really listened to what our family needed to make the trip just right for us. Her suggestions and itinerary were spot on and created the best family memories (from the perfect view for the Epcot fireworks to meeting Chewbacca!). We can’t wait to go back 🙂

-Moira C.

We just came back from our son’s 2nd birthday and first trip to Disney World! It was PERFECT! Amanda has been planning our Disney Vacation from the last 5 years and everytime is perfect! Thanks Amanda!!

-Susana

Amanda did an amazing job planning our trip! She took care of everything in detail and was extremely prompt in answering all my questions. She always went above and beyond! I would most definitely use Amanda for our next trip!

-Sarah J.

We had a wonderful time! This trip was even better than the last, 2 years ago. Thank you for all your help and patience.

-Hannia A.

Amanda was recommended by a friend who had use Living with the magic services before. Thanks to Amanda our vacation was really easy and everything was plan to perfection. Her recommendations were the bests for my family’s interests. She answered all of our questions quickly and helped us in everything we needed. It really made a huge difference in our vacation experience!!
When we got to our hotel everything was set up: itinerary ready, our dining done, our fast pass reservations made. We are looking forward to plan our next vacation!
Thanks Amanda!!

– Roselia G

We brought our 2 kids to Disney for the first time in July. Amanda was recommended to us by a relative. She was so easy to work with and was quick to respond back to us with answers to all of our questions. Planning this amazing trip was a breeze thanks to her knowledge and expertise. We will definitely be referring Amanda to our friends and family and we’ll be using her for all of our travel plans in the future! Thanks for helping to make this the most “magical” trip ever. We made some wonderful memories!

-Tami C

Amanda was recommended by a friend who had just been to Disney. Her recommendations were SPOT ON for my granddaughter’s interests. I would HIGHLY recommend using Living With the Magic for planning you next trip to Disney. She answered all of our questions quickly even while she was on vacation herself. It truly made our vacation MUCH more enjoyable.

It was truly a MAGICAL VACATION!

Thanks again Amanda!

Kathy F

The thought of planning a trip to Universal and Sea World was so overwhelming that I was beginning to think I would never figure out how to take my children there! Amanda was amazing and took care of everything! Her advice from where to stay to which day to fly was spot on and she helped us save a lot of money. She promptly responded to every email and thoroughly answered every question I had. I will definitely seek Amanda’s advice and expertise when we are ready for our next trip!

-Jennine

Amanda was fantastic! She helped with every aspect of our trip, and quickly responded to all 3,289 of my questions along the way. I can’t imagine planning a Disney trip without her. What’s better than five stars?

-Dan R.

Amanda exceeded my expectations for planing our wonderful vacation to Jamaica. She was extremely knowledgeable about the resort, Sandals and had wonderful recommendations for activities.  It should also be noted, prior to the Jamaica trip, she handled my Disney vacation.  One thing is for sure, I will continue to utilize Amanda and her team in the future for all my trips/vacations.

Not only was all of our dining done, our fast pass reservations made, and our whole itinerary including what buses to take done for us, Amanda moved our reservation when our pool was slated to be closed! She found us a huge discount and applied it no questions asked. THEN, she added a sixth person to our room, dining reservations, and fast passes. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! When my daughter broke her foot just before our trip, she had our scooter rental set up to pick up at our resort along with our room moved to the first floor before we even left the doctor’s office! I honestly cannot say enough about how valuable and beneficial having her and Living with the Magic vacations has been. I would never plan a trip without her!

Lisa O.

Living with the Magic Vacations is an awesome travel service! Amanda has planned our last 3 trips to WDW and our upcoming vacation, as well as 2 Disney cruises. She really knows Disney and makes the planning seamless! She always responds to emails quickly and is only a phone call away while on your trip! We wouldn’t book without her help ever again!
Cindi T.

I am pretty much a control freak by nature and did a TON of research on my own, but the packet Amanda gave when we booked with her was SO helpful in determining the best times for us to plan our Fast Passes and when to take a break. She was SO quick to answer any questions we had and help us out even though it took 2.5 years from first communication to our trip. AWESOME!
Michelle D.

Just got back from our very first Disney Cruise on the Dream! I am speechless! It was amazing! The room and verandah, the food, the ship itself! It was all just so beautiful! Amanda snagged us room 8188 which was right at the end the ship. The views were spectacular! And there was plenty to do or not do if you wanted! And did I mention the food?! The fish, the ice cream and sammy’s at lunch…oh goodness. We had such a spectacular time! I have vertigo now but this is just me. My hubby is fine. Amanda was fantastic with getting us all set up and ready to go. She’s just fantastic! We loved everything! So painless getting thru customs and security. Perfect is the only way to describe this trip! Thank you friend!
Kimmy

My family traveled to WDW in February and Amanda was our travel agent. While we always do our own travel plans, having a travel agent on your side at WDW is totally worth it. Amanda was amazing! Not only did she help book our room and tickets, she gave us recommendations for and booked our dining reservations, too! And when we had an issue while traveling, she was quick to respond and helpful!
Daisymae Designs

This was my first time ever booking any kind of vacation let alone a trip of a lifetime for my children and grandchildren. Amanda was there to answer all of my questions and made sure that all of our wants and needs are fulfilled. I was very nervous because it all seemed so easy but everything went exactly as she said it would and we had a fabulous time. Thank you Amanda for making my life long dream come true.

Cheryl G.

Love Love Amanda. She is so patient with all my questions and overall craziness! She is the best!

Leslie J.

Amanda REALLY helped me! We had our first ever Disney vacation in June 2014. I’d never been and my daughter was 2 1/2 so it was a new thing for both of us. Amanda helped with ALL of my questions and I never had a problem with her getting back to me! I’d often ask a off the wall question while at work and she’d get back to me quickly. I was really nervous as this was my daughter’s first big vacation leaving the state with me and as a single mom, I was terrified! Amanda made sure we had everything we needed and it was all condensed so all I had to do was print the info off and drive down. I knew so much just from her that I felt like I knew ALL the inside tricks. Whenever we decide to go again, I’ll be calling Amanda
!Ms. Polka Dottie

Amanda was amazing! I’ve already recommended her to numerous friends and will continue to do so. I was so overwhelmed by Disney so I was thrilled to have Amanda’s help. However, I didn’t realize until we were in the middle of our trip how invaluable her knowledge really was. She planned an amazing trip for our entire family – the hotel, dining reservations, meal plan, etc were all perfect. But it was also her indepth knowledge of Disney and recommendations that were so helpful. She had insight on things that I never would have thought about. She was easy to work with, responsive, and knowledgeable! My husband and I were so grateful for all that she did for us – we will definitely use her again next time we go!
Laura
This was our very first time booking a Disney World Vacation. I had no idea what to do or where to start. Amanda was amazing! She took care of everything. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I loved how she planned our days based on what WE wanted and what our children NEEDED. She anticipated and addressed every possible question/concern I had. She made this vacation absolutely perfect. She even arranged for our private transportation to and from the hotel in Disney World. I cannot express in words how wonderful Amanda’s services are and I will definitely be recommending her to anyone I know!
Jennifer D.
I highly recommend Living With The Magic to anyone planning their first trip to Disney. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to go through what seemed like something that would be an extremely complicated process. But, it was Amanda, and her advice, that made it so easy. Her suggestions were spot on – she recommended what parks to go to on the days we were at Disney World over Spring Break. The parks were not empty, but they were very manageable with our 8 and 5 year old sons. Amanda even set up a babysitter for my husband and I so we could get a date night. The service she recommended was excellent! And, Amanda definitely helped us save money – by rebooking us to get a better discount, and recommending a grocery service for what our meal plan didn’t cover. Thank you again Amanda for helping us plan an AMAZING Disney vacation!
Liz W.
Amanda has booked our last few vacations and she will definitely be our next! Most recently, we went on an Alaskan cruise and it was absolutely wonderful! Amanda took care of every detail, we just had to sit back and enjoy! She booked all our port adventures, spa appointments and meals at Palo. We had a fantastic trip and can’t wait to take our next Disney adventure!
Cindi

We had the absolute BEST time!!  Each day ran very easily with the Fast Passes and Dining Reservations.  Everything was loaded on the magic bands and we had no problems what so ever.  I will highly recommend your services to anyone I know that is looking to go to Disney World.

It was probably the best family vacation we have had!!  Those five days my kids were the most well behaved angels anyone could have asked for… of course 30 minutes at home and everything was back to normal 🙂  Thank you again for your work in helping to make our family vacation so memorable.
-Amber W.
Normally, I spend hours comparing prices, options and dates for an upcoming Disney trip. . By using Amanda’s services this year I saved so much time and energy, allowing me to focus on the fun ahead. Amanda was knowledgeable, fast to respond and very patient as I changed my mind several times on various options.
I would definitely book with Amanda and living with the magic again! Thank you!!
Ashley B.

I’m not one to take a lot of help, definitely a “do it yourself” kind of guy so when friends of mine insisted that I definitely needed help to plan a Disney Trip and that I specifically needed Amanda I was skeptical. Wow – were they RIGHT!

I had no idea that there were so many little tips and tricks to a Disney trip. Amanda’s advice paid for itself a thousand fold and we could not have had a more wonderful trip. She customized our plans to accommodate our “go with the flow” style with just the right amount of schedule and structure. Without her assist we surely would have had fun at Disney but would have spent less time enjoying the magic and more time aimlessly walking and waiting in line. She also recommended several dining locations that we wouldn’t have chosen otherwise and they turned out to be our best experiences.

Thanks Amanda!

-The Selzler Family

Amanda made an overwhelming task (planning and booking our Disney World vacation) simple and fun! Thanks so much for the great time! Will be sharing pictures with you soon!

-Joanne

Amanda helped us to plan the most magical vacation ever! This will forever be etched in our memories (and we have lots of picture too — don’t neglect to get the Memory Maker package). Every detail was perfect. The final consultation phone call was also a huge help. I cannot recommend Amanda more highly!
-Beth A.

We recently booked our first ever trip to Disney World with Amanda. She planned the entire trip based on my families needs and interest. She also put onto paper everything we could ever never know to do to make sure we didn’t miss a thing, including the run events that my family was participating in. You want an expert at Disney, she’s your girl! She was there every step of the way, all the way to the end. We will definitely be planning again one day with her and have already begun to share her info with others considering a trip to Disney in the future. Thank you Amanda!
From the Gonzalez Family ❤

This is the second trip we booked with Amanda. The first was just for my husband and I. This time we took all but one of our family-19! She handled everything for us, she was efficient, answered our endless questions quickly and kept up with changes as we made them. We would highly recommend Amanda and her team.
MaryLou G.
We really appreciate the knowledge that Amanda has of Disney and the experiences offered there. It helped us to make good decisions about what we wanted to do while on our first trip there! We had a super experience and everything went as planned!
Meredith

I truly can not say enough about the great service we have received from Living With The Magic. Amanda took on planning a trip for us that included 20+ people with different wants, needs and ideas. She pulled off every bit of it with ease! My husband and I used her again for a surprise trip for us and our children and again, by no surprise, BOOM! Out of the park service, no doubt! She took care of all the details. It was one the easiest trips we’ve had. One of my favorite things about her was her excitement she shared for my family. She cared for us as if we were old pals! Amanda turned my hesitant hubby into a Disney fan (Something I didn’t see possible)! In return, we’re fans of this great business! I’m looking forward to trips in the future with my kiddos where our family dreams come true and all made possible by someone I now consider a friend!
Sunny S.

What would I do without Amanda!!! She is ALWAYS helpful and professional even handling me and my OCD tendencies lol. Her advice and planning is top rate and I recommend her to everyone. Thanks for all you do Amanda!!!
Tanya

Amanda was absolutely amazing! This was my first time booking a family vacation to Disney and when I started looking into it, I was completely overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. Amanda was highly recommended by a friend so I contacted her for some information. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable about Disney and was able to answer all of the questions I had about the trip. She used her expertise to make recommendations for parks on days that would likely be less crowded and was able to make fast pass recommendations for rides keeping in mind what my 2 year old would likely be able to ride. She is highly organized and sends information in a packet that is easy to read and understand. She makes her recommendations ahead of time for dining and fast passes and I received an email first thing in the morning when both opened with my reservations/confirmation numbers. Amanda was even able to help us last minute with booking a wheelchair for my dad who ended up having surgery 3 days before our trip. Amanda’s passion for Disney shines through her work and I am so incredibly thankful that she was there for my family every step of the way! Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough. I look forward to working with you in the future for our next Disney trip!!

Lindsay R.

My family and I had the most incredible experience at our first trip to Disney World, and it is all thanks to Amanda! She thought of every little detail to make our trip the best experience we could possibly have, from places she recommended us to eat, to when the reservations should be made for, to what days we visited each park. She knows what she is doing, and makes all of the decision making on our end as minimal as possible and simple. I was so thankful for her expertise and my husband and I commented on how thankful we were for her throughout our time there.

Dori C.

Amanda to help sort everything out for us. It was also fabulous to not have to worry about booking dining reservations! Plus, the reminder emails to book the fast passes were also extremely helpful. Most importantly, due to a death in the family, Amanda had to book our trip for us twice. She was so gracious in helping us move the dates and re-book the rooms, the parks, the magical express bus ride to the hotels and the meals! Thanks so much Amanda!

Stacy

I can’t say enough about the help that Amanda gave us. In the past, I have always taken care of our Disney trips…but that was before three kids under the age of 5. Amanda was great to work with, providing ideas that we had not considered (since this was our first trip to WDW with kids). Our room was perfect and trip was exciting…she even arranged for our son to have a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” button waiting for him at the front desk. Our trip was relatively last minute…and she helped take the stress off me and make our trip magical. Thank you Amanda! <3
Melissa Scofield

Back in February we had planned a cruise with the whole family. We had decided that a 3 day cruise just wasn’t enough. So about 3 weeks before we left we thought, “hey! Why not go to Disney world for a few days as well! It’s only money, right?” LOL. Well I contacted Amanda and she was RIGHT on it! Without hesitation she got us all set up and planned out in such a short amount of time. Our trip was magical and we couldn’t have pulled it off without her! We will ALWAYS use Amanda!!! I now consider her a friend and a blessing!!!!
Tracy S.

Amanda, You did an amazing job for us getting us a great room close to the pool and bus stop. The recommendations you made and the reservations were amazing. It was a great experience and all the help you gave us really directed us in the right way to see the most and best of Disney.
Mary

Amanda was there to answer all of my questions and made sure that all of our wants and needs are fulfilled. I was very nervous because it all seemed so easy but everything went exactly as she said it would and we had a fabulous time. Thank you Amanda for making my life long dream come true.

Cheryl G.

You were not kidding when you said about all the possibilities here in Florida! Wow!
I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you for all you have done to set us up for a wonderful vacation! The private pick up was absolutely amazing and unexpected to say the least! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and generosity! All the little things and inside information you have had a hand in, are all playing out in front of our eyes! You are such a valuable resource that our family has been blessed with!
Thank you so much for everything Amanda!!!!

Angela C.

Thank you SO MUCH for everything you did to make our cruise go so smoothly. All four of us had an amazing time, and it was so refreshing to know that everything was taken care of for us. The cruise itself was wonderful and they took such good care of us and everything we were stressed about turned out to be so straightforward and easy! (Can you tell my travel stress point is logistics?! Ha!)
The driver you got for us to and from the boat was awesome-please pass along our thanks to him and hopefully we can use him again in the future for another trip 🙂
We’re already all dreaming about our next Disney adventure, so you’ll be hearing from us again soon! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for everything! We’ll be sure to give your name to anyone thinking about Disney!! You’re amazing!

Moira C.

Amanda, what an amazing experience! Your guidance, helpful hints, and itinerary were just what our family needed to make the most of our trip. Each restaurant and fast pass experience were exactly what we were looking for. Our little prince and princess both loved every special moment as much as the adults all did. Thank you does not begin to express our appreciation for all you did.
Art and Su Keiser
This was our first time visiting Disney World! There was so much planning involved I don’t know what we would have done without Amanda. She was on top of things every step of the way with emails and reminders and she nailed it. Our trip went perfectly, all of our reservations and fast passes were amazing! It was nice to be able to go and relax and have a wonderful time without having to worry about all the little things that needed to be done. We are already looking into and saving for our next Disney Vacation and I would’t book with any one else besides Amanda. She knew was my family and I needed before I could even ask. She was very patient and answered all my questions (and I had a lot of them!) Everything we asked for Amanda made it happen. We had 4 separate accounts that all needed to be connected with fast passes, reservations and rooms and she took care of all of it! Living With The Magic is an amazing company filled with with wonderful people. Thank you so much Amanda for everything, can’t wait to book our next trip in a few years with you!!!

Samantha B.

Amazing! Amanda took care of every detail! I’m so grateful for help guidance, support and patience!
We had a fantastic trip! I’m not sure we could have pulled it off without Amanda! Thank you!

-Laurie

Amazing Trip, Amazing Agent!
Amanda planned every detail of this trip for my family, and I could not have been more pleased. My parents are both 60 and it was their first visit to the Most Magical place on earth during Christmas week and you should have seen their faces. I wanted everything to be just perfect and Amanda made sure that every question was answered thoroughly. It was the first visit as well for our 2 children under the age of 5. From the character dining, departure & arrival, reserved seating for shows, suggestions for parks and rides, and even my last minute questions while at the park. Amanda provided the best planning service for our family and went above and beyond in all aspects. We will definitely use Amanda again for our next Disney Vacation! from our family to yours Happy 2017 and Thank you!
