Testimonials for Allison
My family and I just got back from a Disney trip that was one for the books. We stayed 8 long, amazing days and had the time of our lives. In the beginning, I figured I would handle all the planning myself, which I enjoy. But once I saw all that was involved, hotel bookings, meal plans, fast passes, show times, I started to get very overwhelmed. What started as something to look forward to, started to be something I was panicking about. My friend told me she used Allison at MMP and said I should give her a call. At that point everything changed. Allison helped us plan our vacation over 8 months and it was a joy to plan again! When you are spending good money on an amazing vacation, you shouldn’t stress. It should be fun. Allison helped with our payments, our arrangements, all our endless questions on what to do next and everything in between (even 7am panic calls when we are confused about fast pass selections!!). We will definitely recommend their company and will continue to recommend them to our friends who are looking for an amazing experience! Thanks for everything Allison! Next……….Disney Aulani!!!!!” -The Townsend Family
So we went to Universal Studios and Allison helped us plan our trip. She is so kind and helpful we will use her for all our Florida park trips. Talk to ya soon Allison I think Mickey is calling us in 2019!!!!!
Allison was great. She was so helpful and planned an amazing first trip to Disney for our family! She knew all kinds of details that I never would have thought of. I was very overwhelmed with it being our first trip to Disney, and Allison was able to walk through the planning process with us and seamlessly arrange a week for our family that was amazing! She was so helpful and answered any questions I could think of! I would highly recommend Allison to anyone planning a trip to Disney, whether it’s your first time or not!
Hi Allison!We had a great vacation! The girls were so enamored with the princesses and loved their surprise! The Wilderness Lodge was a great location and very nice acommodation. The meal plan worked out very well for us too. Our biggest compliant would be the stinking “love-bugs” swarming us every where we went, who knew about those pesky things? I never even heard of them before!I wanted to thank you again so much for your help and suggestions. Your services made a much better vacation than I could have planned on my own!Sue
Hi Allison, I had to let you know, that we had a Fantastic vacation!
Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance and planning! We absolutely loved Caribbean Beach, the upgrade to the preferred room was the perfect choice for us and put us close to the CenterTown and pool. We didn’t have to take an internal resort shuttle at all.
All of our reservations worked out. The only one we canceled was the Crystal Palace. We were disappointed but our 2 year old had a melt down (literally carried her on and off the bus kicking and screaming) and needed down time so she slept for 3 hrs and it wasn’t feasible to get to dinner. I remembered your advise to enjoy what we were doing and not rush to get onto what we might miss. So she napped (okay so we all napped LOL!) and we had a fantastic night at the Electric Light Parade and Magic Kingdom.
We saw so many wonderful shows and attractions and are already talking about our ‘next trip’!
The garden grocer was great and the meal plan so worth it. The Disney Meal Plan staff did a phenomenal job of accommodating our daughter’s food allergies. We were so comfortable that she was eating safely and all of the chefs took so much time explaining things to us and preparing desserts for her to enjoy. Some places (outside of Disney) I feel get ‘annoyed’ when I ask about the allergies. Not 1 chef made us feel even the slightest bit like we were a bother. It was truly beyond appreciated and I do intend to write a follow up to them letting them know how wonderful they were.
Thank you again for everything. I know we will be going again someday and when we do will definitely be contacting you and referring you in the future to all of our friends traveling to Disney!
We’ll definitely contact you for future travel plans…thanks so much for your help! We got Mickey and the gang to sign our autograph mat…can’t wait to put a picture in!!
Hey Allison I wanna say thanks for helping us out so quickly when we were at Disney with the dinning mess up. I’m finally recovering from the trip. I will refer you to all my friends when they go. You are an awesome Disney specialist!!! We had a great time and will be going back probably in the next 3 yrs. But as an adult going and seeing all that was awesome!!!! I especially loved Cinderella’s royal table breakfast. That was the highlight of the trip. Thank you again!!!!
“Just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all your wonderful planning for our magical Disney vacation! We had such a great trip! It kick started with getting to see our home team super bowl champions (the Ravens) MVP Joe Flacco in the Dream Come True Parade! In the picture above, they actually changed the Mickey flower color to purple for the ravens win..pretty awesome experience that first day alone!
Our little princess absolutely LOVED the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! It was wonderful seeing her excitement with everything Disney offered.
One favorite thing was the penny press machines, she has a collection. I actually took a baggie of quarters and a baggie of pennies to make it easy to get them. We collected 18 new pennies from Disney! It was actually really crowded there because of a deca conference and international cheerleader competition going on, so we ended up doing 3 of our 5 park days at Magic Kingdom and could have done another day just to get stuff in.
My husband said before we even left the airport to go home, “Next year we’ll have to come for 2 weeks..or 10days”, so you know it was a great time!
When we do decide on Disney next year, or in the future, we’ll definitely book with you, and I’ve recommended your business to a lot of people. Thank you for a job well done magical memory planners!

For our family being “first timers” to Disney, the planning process was a bit intimidating. We can’t say enough about how available and knowledgeable Allison was in helping us to coordinate a plan for Magic Kingdom that fit our family’s life stage and interests. Thank you so much Allison…we would have spent at least 20+ hours on the internet researching all that you were able to share in just a few minutes over the phone. Great job!
Allison, we had wonderful memorable experience. Have recommended you highly to lots of people. I would have not been able to pull off this vacation if it wasn’t for you and your planning. It was perfect. Also, wouldn’t have been able to afford it if it wasn’t for that meal plan. Thank you so much
