30 Days of Thankfulness

(A reminder to do what we are commanded in Scripture.)

November 30th, 2012.
Day 30.

I am thankful for Disney helpers.

With our Disney vacation just a few days away now, I can more or less look back over the process of getting everything ready… And I realize how important my helpers were along the way. There’s a lot to this planning, and people with specialized knowledge make all the difference!

I am thankful for Disney Dining’s cast members.

Making most of the reservations online was simple enough, but there are always a few snags. How do I book the package with the show reservations? How do I change all of these reservations from 5 people to 4? One call to a toll-free number, and cheerful Disney folk were able to handle it all.

I am thankful for Disney Dining’s gluten free policies, the special diet department, and the information they provide.

Honestly, I think I would be too overwhelmed to try a vacation like this to a place where I didn’t feel comfortable about being able to get “safe” food.

I am thankful for my Disney “Earmarked” Travel Planner.

Again, I could have booked a hotel and bought tickets online myself. But I don’t know which rooms have the best view, much less how to request them. And adding the Free Dining Plan after the fact? Making payments on my trip? Changing things at the last minute due to Wolf’s military schedule?

Yes, I could have called Disney each time, and I’m sure the cheerful folks there would have been able to handle each request. But I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have a single, knowledgeable point of contact who knew and could do everything. And there’s no charge for the hand-holding – agents’ commissions come out of Disney’s part of the bill.

I can’t speak highly enough about Chris at Pixie Vacations, so I want to share her information with you. She did not seek this promotion, and I am not receiving any compensation for it. Please do tell her As For My House sent you, so she knows how much we appreciate her!

Feels good, doesn’t it? :)
