Dispelling Some Walt Disney World Myths!

Set Up BoothWhat are the beliefs that hold you back from planning a Disney destination vacation? I may be able to fact check them for you. As a travel agent specializing in Disney destinations, I spend a lot of my time promoting myself, my business, and, of course, my love of all things Disney.  One way I do this is by setting up a booth at local craft fairs, vendor shows, etc. I absolutely LOVE doing this because I get to meet new people in my own area and discover a love of Disney in lots of folks that I already knew.  But, at each and every show, I hear many of the same things in regard to Disney World and why someone WOULDN’T go.  Now, if you truly aren’t a “Disney person”–don’t like magical fun, or whatever–then so be it.  It seems a sad way to live if you ask me, but I can accept that.  But if your reasons don’t, in reality, hold water, then I want to be the one to help dispel those thoughts and open up a whole new world of possibilities for you.  I seem to have the same 2 pop up over and over again, so those are the 2 will focus on.  Let’s hop right to it, shall we?
