Booking Your Trip with me as your Disney Travel Specialist

Whether you've been to Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line multiple times, or you're just now planning your very first trip - there are many benefits to booking your vacation with The Pink Ear Pixie. As a Disney travel specialist I love what I do!

Who said nothing in life is free? Booking a Disney vacation with me as your personal travel planner will cost you NOTHING. My services are 100% free to my
clients. It's a win-win situation - you book a trip to your dream destination and you have a free go-to specialist at your disposal.

When booking a client's vacation I first ask for travel dates. This helps me determine what discounts can be applied to the reservation. Disney World typically offers "some" kind of discount for select travel dates throughout the year. Disney Cruise Line occasionally offers discounts on select cruises. An extra service I offer my clients is the assurance that I will keep checking on new discounts for their travel dates. If a client books a reservation and a better discount comes out at a later date, I automatically modify their reservation to reflect the savings. Booking a vacation with The Pink Ear Pixie allows you to sit back and relax and not have to keep up with Disney discount information.

For Disney Cruise Line travelers I also offer extra onboard credit for booking with me. The amount of onboard credit depends on the total cost of the cruise. It can range anywhere from $25 to $100. That's extra money that cruisers can spend on board the ship for souvenirs, spa visits, drinks, Bingo, and other extra touches.

In addition to keeping track of Disney discounts, I also make sure my clients have the best ticket options and dining options for their family. Every family is unique. I work with my clients to find out how many days they plan to visit the parks and what kind of dining preferences they have. This will allow me to recommend the correct tickets and dining plan.

Dining reservations are a big part of travel to Disney World. This is another service I offer for my clients. If they need me to put together restaurant recommendations and make their reservations for them, I will! Not every client needs help, but those that do seem to appreciate this option.

Once dining reservations have been made for Disney World, I list them in the daily itinerary for the client. I put together a personalized daily itinerary for the clients that need them. Again, some clients are experienced Disney World visitors and do not need itinerary help. But others have never visited. And for these clients I list day to day activities in a detailed itinerary.

Each of my clients has their own client page that lists their reservation information and their itinerary with dining reservations. Whether they are a Disney Cruise Line traveler or a Disney World traveler, they will receive log-in information for their password protected page. Within the page there will also be a payment submission form and I've just begun adding a general contact form within each page as well. My clients seem to appreciate their own personal space and most of them visit their pages regularly. It's a nice reminder that their vacation is coming soon!

I love when a client chooses to book a vacation with me because I really enjoy working with families to make their Disney dreams come true. And best of all - I have lots of new friends to share the joy of Disney!

My name is Amanda Sykora and I am a Disney-holic.

When I was 2 years old I visited Disney World for the first time. The trip consisted of a quick stop to the Magic Kingdom with my mother and my Nannie (my mom's mom) in February 1979. While I do not remember any of the trip, even when my mom tells the story of me falling asleep while eating potato chips in bed after an exhausting day of walking around the Magic Kingdom in a pair of brand new sandals that left blisters the size of grapes on my heels, apparently the experience left a lasting impression that has now manifested into a lifetime of love for all things Disney.

Fast forward, oh, 30-something years, and here I sit wanting to pour out my heart and soul about how Disney has affected my life and why I still become teary eyed when even thinking of being in the presence of Cinderella's Castle. Don't even try and ask my kids what I think about Disney World. Following an eye roll, you'll get an explanation of how my life revolves around planning our next trip - even if that trip is 2 years in the future. And they're right. Whenever we do not have a family vacation in the works I'm miserable!

In late 2009 I realized that I was not able to visit Disney World nearly as often as I'd like. So I decided it was time to reach out and start living vicariously through other Disney World visitors. I started as a travel agent specializing in Disney vacations to help feed the Disney hunger. I can honestly say that I love my job and I have really enjoyed helping other families with their dreams of Disney vacations. During my time as a travel agent I have helped clients from all over the US (including Alaska!) and even a few international clients. My clients mean a lot to me and I'm happy to call many of them my friends.

The Pink Ear Pixie and my blog have been a great source of fun for me. I've been able to share a little about myself and my Disney knowledge with the other Disney followers in cyberspace. Most of my focus for my blog has been about Disney World and Disney Cruise Line discounts and deals, plus new and upcoming events between the two. Occasionally, I will feel the need to write up something silly about a Disney product or Disney character. You never know what you may find on my blog and website.
