We took our oldest son who is now nine to Disney World when he was four. It was the most wonderful and magical vacation that my husband and I had been on ever. When we had our second son, we were on a countdown until he would be old enough to go. We decided three years old was old enough and I started planning. We wanted this to be more magical than the last trip. I had the brilliant idea that we should invite everyone to come at the same time. My husband’s parents and his three brothers with their families said yes and I got yeses from my side. I contacted FTM Travel as I felt this would be too much for me to coordinate. I was ready to go all in and do the itinerary package but it was getting complicated with all the families wanting to wait and book at different times. So I did it on my own like I did the first time. I booked three rooms and several meals but then there were husband’s cousins and friends with their families who wanted to join us for meals and I started to feel overwhelmed. I heard from another client of FTM Travel that they do reservations for free without itineraries which meant I was on the phone that day with Jami. She got our reservations switched over and I just had to send her an email of wants for meals. She helped us narrow down restaurant choices and booked everything. When we later needed to change a reservation size from 10 to 16 and drop one traveler in exchange for another, she managed it with ease and no change fees. Our sons not only got to enjoy Disney World but they got to do it with cousins, aunts and uncles, and nana and poppy. Momma and Daddy were at least sane before we got there because planning was fun and easy with a call to FTM Travel. We received a packet about a week before we left with our reservation information and her contact information. She made it quite clear that we were to call her if we needed anything during our trip. She even checked on us while we were there and all this at no additional cost. Disney World is where dreams come true and those dreams should start with a call to FTM Travel. – The Boyds, Tennessee

The Magic Kingdom is for Boys, Too! Enjoying two of Jami’s princess-themed trips with my granddaughters, I was concerned if I would be able to provide an adequately entertaining trip for my grandson. My Fairy TripMother created the excitement I desired by designing a pirate-themed trip. A makeup session was scheduled where my grandson was transformed to the look of a pirate in a setting where we could purchase costuming. She suggested activities and rides that my young pirate could enjoy while in his ‘Argh’ mode.
Jami’s constant attention to research in the parks afforded minimal wait time with the luxury of knowing just where and when to meet favorite characters. She knew what a five-year-old boy would enjoy! Her hard work allowed us to arrive with an itinerary in hand, including worry-free dining reservations which she was willing to make very early in the morning 180 days prior to our arrival. When Jami made our dining reservations, she explained that my grandson has food allergies. Upon arrival at restaurants as well as counter service meals, his parents were instructed to contact the chef. They were given the opportunity to discuss a gluten, egg, and dairy-free diet. Each meal was a “normal” experience for our family, as the staff prepares for a variety of dietary needs. My grandson was able to enjoy a birthday cupcake at Chef Mickey’s and waffles with Winnie the Pooh at the Crystal Palace!
After all the detailed planning, Jami even made herself available by phone in case I had questions during our stay. With the help of my Fairy TripMother, I was able to relax and enjoy the excitement of Disney World alongside my grandson and his parents.—Connie, Tennessee
The Finnegan Family
Based on the advice of several friends we consulted Jami and Fairy TripMother to plan our first trip to Disney World in December 2011 for us and our three daughters. We had a magical trip – no lines, no overtired kids, great meals, plenty of pool time. No “Disney Death March” (as my husband calls it) for us! We stuck to her plan – everything worked. We had one restaurant problem – I called Jami while we waited for a table and she had the trouble fixed with a flick of her wand. Since then Jami has planned three Disney cruises for us. I wouldn’t do anything Disney related without calling Jami first!! – The Finnegans, New Brunswick, Canada

We would highly recommend using FTM Travel for all of your Disney planning needs. Jami helped us get a great deal on our resort and was able to research deals we could use for the Dining Plan. We were traveling with a large group and she helped us secure dining reservations at wonderful restaurants that appealed to the grandparents and the 5 year old! Jami also helped us plan which day to go to certain parks to avoid the biggest crowds. Using FTM Travel took all of the stress out of planning our Disney Vacation and we had a wonderful time. I would definitely use Jami and FTM Travel again.—The Brims, Tennessee
My family and I recently took a family vacation to Walt Disney world. The process at first seemed overwhelming until I got in touch with Jennifer Hrubetz , an agent with FTM Travel. From that moment on the whole planning process was so stress free, I couldn’t believe it!
Jennifer asked the questions and within 24 hours we had a vacation mapped out fit for our family. A list of all the best resorts, restaurants, all the MUST DO’s at every park, best places to grab a snack, you name it, she knew it. And she was available anytime we had a question or concern, all the way up until the very end of our vacation. She also moved reservations for us after missing our connecting flight to Orlando.
The memories we built as a family and all the fun we had will never be forgotten. And the smiles on our daughter’s faces were absolutely priceless. My husband, who really had no idea of all the work it takes to plan a Disney Vacation, was so thankful that we had such a wonderful Disney expert to guide us through it all. We stayed at the Beach Club resort, and it was FANTASTIC!! Such a great location a five minute walk to Epcot and a ten minute boat ride to Hollywood Studios. A perfect Resort for my family and great pools too!
We will be back to Disney World for a family vacation, and without a doubt we will look to Jennifer to help guide us through. ~sonia keeler
The Bonner Family
Our family had a truly magical experience at Disney World thanks to the careful planning and attention to detail by Christy. We had four families traveling from three states for three days at Disney so the logistics were huge and the stakes for good choices were high. Christy arranged travel and accommodations, planned an itinerary tailored to six young children and provided detailed directions and suggestions that helped us make choices beyond established plans. Her suggestions provided thoughtful ideas to match our requests based on her in-depth experience at Disney. Our grandchildren have the priceless memory of character dinners, stunning night-lit parades and fireworks in the Magic Kingdom, shows featuring beloved movie or TV characters and rides carrying their family into well known stories thanks to Christy’s care for our family. Christy was as close as an email or phone call during our planning but most impressively, during our entire stay at Disney —just in case we needed help or had questions. We knew nothing about Disney and have only stress free, treasured memories of our trip. Thank you, Christy!!!~Lynnette Bonner
The Holley Family
When we decided to plan a Walt Disney World vacation, being the planner that I am I knew I wanted someone with expertise to plan all the details so that I could spend the trip enjoying things rather than trying to figure out the best way to spend each day. Christy at Fairy TripMother took time to learn about our family and crafted such an amazing and thorough plan for us that it truly was our best vacation ever. She made navigating the parks easy and her tips about some of her favorite things to check out at each park were a highlight. The best part of the trip was when our daughter surveyed herself in the mirror after her princess makeover and said, “My wish to be a real princess came true!” When she caught sight of Cinderella greeting us for dinner in the castle, she was so speechless that she could barely breathe, “She’s beautiful!”
When we decided on a return trip a year or two later, we automatically knew that we’d use Christy’s service again. Our second trip was just as amazing as we explored areas of the parks we didn’t see our first trip. Meeting Mulan was a highlight for my daughter, as was the princess dinner at Akershus in Norway at Epcot. Suffice it to say that our Disney vacations are treasured memories and that Christy was a HUGE part of the Disney magic for us. I highly recommend FTM/Fairy TripMother to anyone planning a Disney vacation. ~kim holley

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am usually the “social director” in our family, but after opening up my fabric shoppe, I found that the hours I usually spent organizing and planning family vacations was not something I could do any longer. One of your past clients recommended that I allow you to take over my vacation planning task and organize a Disney trip for my daughter’s birthday…I am GLAD I did! For the first time ever…no itinerary planning, no dinner reservations to coordinate, no double checking reservations, no long hours on the phone or internet….no anything…because you DID IT ALL! Now, I know who to call first when we want to visit Mickey Mouse and the Magic Kingdom. Great job Christy!~Susan Horton
