A Vacation You’ll Never Forget!

We get asked this question all the time! Why should I use a travel agent when I can do it all myself? It’s true, you CAN do it all yourself, but you can also do as much as you want even though you booked with a travel agent.

When you book with Dreams by Design Travel, on top of stress-free planning, you’re also getting amentities that you wouldn’t get if you planned it yourself. You’ll receive a personalized service, like no other, from a Dream Designer who’ll guide you through the whole planning process. You’ll also get itinerary planning with FastPass+ assistance. We’ll also monitor your vacation plans for any discounts and promotions up until the day you travel, so you can save as much money possible! You also receive Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR)… Did I mention you get all of this for free?!

"Thanks so much. You are awesome!! Gotta be honest I was a little nervous about not being in control but you knocked it out of the park and got everything we wanted. Can’t say it enough. Thank you so much, you are making this trip FABULOUS for our family."

– Christy B.

"Kendra was amazing! She helped my aunt and I plan a short trip to Animal Kingdom including choosing a hotel. Having not visited Disney in over 20 years I was a bit behind the times with all the new technology (FastPass, Disney app) but Kendra happily explained everything and made sure we had a stress free experience. The hotel she suggested was perfect for us as well. We had a great time and will be sure to useKendra’s services again the next time. Thanks Kendra!"

– Brooke L.

"Hey Bob, We had a wonderful week! Thanks to you, I think our plans were absolutely perfect - there was almost nothing we would've changed! We'll put together some pictures and send over! Thank you so much for all your help planning the trip of a lifetime!!!"

– Brandon

"Teresa helped me book a cruise with Royal Caribbean to Cuba and the Bahamas. It was our first cruise, so I had lots of questions! Teresa was super helpful and patient!"

– H. Hawkins

"Maureen helped my husband and I schedule a trip to Portugal. Neither one of us had ever been to Europe, so we didn't have a clue where to start. The hotel was wonderful and the sightseeing tours could not have been better organized. Thank you Maureen for helping us schedule this trip! It was fabulous."

– Wendi M.

"My first trip to Disney! I was a complete mess and didn’t know where to start or what to really do, I booked whatever and said this will have to work. Allie contacted me and offered her help. I got an upgraded hotel and great hard to get reservations because of her! She is awesome at what she does and has always helped me! If you want a trip to remember please contact her!!"

– Happy Disney Vacationer

"Bridget Singleton was amazing! She booked our weekend getaway to Disney last weekend. She kept in constant communication before, during and even after our trip. First time we have stayed on Disney property and really had a great time. We look forward to using her again for our next family getaway."

– Lily S.

"I can't thank Sue enough for planning or first Disney trip. She went above and beyond for us. It truly was magical because of her help. She took care of everything for us all we had to do was show up for our reservations and fast passes. When we had an issue with our resort, Sue fixed it. Thank you, Sue, for making such wonderful memories for my family. You Rock!!!"

Tammie R.

"Marci is the best! From start to finish she plans, books and organizes every detail of our trip. We travel with large groups (14-18 people). Age ranges from 3- senior citizen and she still plans a trip that each one of us enjoys! If you want a magical vacation she is your girl! I will never travel without her expertise!"
