Not just helpful but inspiring too

Listening to your podcast has
- helped me learn more for my own family trips
- brought me joy when I’m missing Disney here in Michigan
- inspired me to become a travel agent!
I’m so grateful for the impact Dan and Leslie have made. I never would’ve become a TA and before becoming a TA myself book a trip for my family with Leslie. You are such kind people who bring lots of joy and help create lifelong memories for so many families. Thank you for all you do!

Wonderful podcast

I am so happy That I found this podcast and thank you Leslie for helping my family and Dan you are great to don’t worry I have something special to say always too thank you so much and p.s. by the way I’m 10 years old not an adult ❤️p.s.s. I’m sorry I write to many reviews

So much to say!

I have so many thoughts! I have always been a fan of Disney but you both have taken it to the next level for me! I have been a band Director for 24 years on Long Island and have planned trips for my students to perform there many times over the years. The latest trip was in 2022 and that’s when my friend Lisa sent me your podcast. I was slightly overwhelmed with all of the changes post Covid that I needed advice and became addicted to listening! I was able to pass along so many of your tips to my students and their families who joined us! Planning a trip for 160 students is quite different than planning a trip for your own family. of course we had typical bumps in the road but I cried while marching down Main Street with my band, overwhelmed with emotion (and I loved knowing that Leslie could relate!)! I love that Dan was a Drum Major of his High school marching band and that he is a musical theater fan like I am! I used Leslie to book my spring break trip for my family of four last spring and She was always very responsive and so easy to work with! I had never really considered a Disney cruise, but all that changed since I started listening. I’ve gone back and listened to all of your old episodes and Leslie is now helping me plan my first Disney cruise on the Wish. I would love it if you could help me surprise my two Disney obsessed boys, Jake and Max, and tell them that we’re going on a Disney Cruise this summer! Thanks for being out there sharing all the Disney magic with us!
