We are so excited to welcome a new sponsor here on Tobi’s Blog! If you have seen my last two Traveling Designer posts on At Home in Arkansas’ blog, then you know all about my recent trips on the Disney Dream and to Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Florida.
But what you might not know is that my trips were absolutely stress-free thanks to Cindy Minor from Small World Big Fun. I think Cindy is the world’s greatest expert on Disney World (other than maybe her business partner Viv) and that’s probably because she is a travel agent extraordinaire specializing in ONLY Disney vacations. My family and I were able to hang out with Mickey and Minnie on our trips, without a worry in the world.
If it weren’t for Cindy, I wouldn’t have known all the secrets to making our Disney vacations a perfect fit for my family and our personalities and preferences. Cindy is super-duper organized (which I love) and she asked all the right questions to know exactly which hotels, restaurants, and attractions would suit us best. She even finds out if you are an early bird or a night owl so she can help you take advantage of the “Extra Magic Hours” which are extended hours for the parks offered to only guests staying in one of the Disney Resort Hotels. I promise you, with Cindy’s help, there is no T not crossed and no I not dotted when planning your Disney trip.
If you are even thinking about a Disney vacation, it is NEVER too early to contact Small World Big Fun. Many of the special events and attractions like dining with the Disney Princesses in Cinderella’s Castle, require reservations 6 months in advance. But as long as you give Cindy a call, you don’t have to worry about those reservations or any others. She takes care of EVERYTHING!
And if you need to do Disney on a budget, Cindy and Viv know all the best deals, special rates and tips on how to make your money and meal plans work for you. She might even squeeze in a great character dinner and still fit your price point. Small World Big Fun often gets better rates than you can find by spending hours scouring the Internet, and they save you all that research time too. You can just tell them your price range and they work hard to help you get the biggest bang for your buck.
I have found Cindy’s recommendations to be spot-on. We let her know what type of hotels we love, what sort of food we eat, and the price ranges we were comfortable with for both. What we got in return was a comprehensive travel planning guide with all the details for hotels and restaurants that fit our criteria.
Once you decide which choices you like, Cindy books everything (other than your airfare) and sends you an updated packet with all your confirmations and itineraries. But that’s not all that’s in Cindy’s packets. They also include extensive tips and suggestions for packing, what to wear depending on the season, what to pack in an overnight bag until you get your bags delivered on the cruise so you are prepared for any activity, bag tags and vouchers for your cruise, how to use fast passes at the parks, tips on stroller rentals, rain gear ideas, the best times and locations for character meet and greets, and so much more.
With Cindy’s packet, we were perfectly prepared with instructions for boarding and departing the cruise, tips on how to avoid long lines on the aqua duck, what shows and activities she recommends on the cruise, and ideas for departing the boat in various ports or when we might rather stay on the ship.
And the best part about Cindy’s recommendations is that they are totally authentic. Cindy has experienced each and every one of her tips herself, so she knows first hand what she likes and what she doesn’t and how she might best advise her clients. Cindy sailed on the inaugural cruise on the Dream and she frequents the parks, so she stays up to date on the latest and greatest happenings including what to avoid or which areas and attractions are closed for renovations.
Obviously, I wouldn’t plan a Disney vacation without Cindy and Small World Big Fun. She has made two trips in two years, the perfect experience for my family and she will do the same for you. Give Cindy a call or email for more information on planning the ideal Disney vacation for you. And if you forget how to contact her, just come back here to our homepage and click the Small World, Big Fun Ad in our sidebar to be directed to the web page and get started planning your trip. You can also stay up to date on more Small World Big Fun ideas and specials by following their blog, plus hear great testimonials and more tips on their Facebook page.
Here’s wishing you a magical time on your next Disney trip. I promise, if you let Cindy take care of all the details, it will be one of the most magical vacations of your life.
