Why did you start Magical Adventure Co.?
Throughout our many adventures, we have seen numerous families getting this whole planning thing right and having a magical trip. But we have also run into those who end up with a much less than magical experience, vowing to never return again.
Since we love these theme parks so much, we don’t want anyone to fall into the latter group. We have tried to give out our best advice here on the blog and website and have seen the numerous other great resources available across the internet.
However, we know that it is not enough. Reading a blog or watching a video is no substitute for a personal conversation. We wanted to provide that along with other valuable services to help people feel confident as they embark on their planning journey.
What does personalized planning mean?
Whether you are a couple without kids looking to visit Walt Disney World for the first time, a group of friends planning a theme park getaway to Universal Orlando, or a family looking to take the children to Disneyland, every trip is different and - most importantly - comes with different expectations.
Along with that, no day in Disney or Universal is the same. So, rather than giving you a one-size-fits-all plan or list of specific steps to follow, we help you understand the parks in a way that’s right for you. We'll help you plan and even help you adapt on the fly to have a fantastic experience.
Why do you call it an adventure?
Many people go to Disney and Universal looking for a relaxing vacation. And well, it's just not really worth the money if that's what you want. Instead, a theme park trip is really an adventure. It requires a lot of planning, getting up early, and walking A LOT. And the fun and excitement is totally worth it! But the best part is that if you plan well, you can also make time for the things that are often found on those relaxing vacations like hanging out by the pool, strolling along a waterfront, or eating a fantastic meal.
How are you different from a Travel Agent?
At Magical Adventure Co. we don’t sell travel. Instead, our fee based structure allows us to focus all of our effort on helping you plan your trip effectively and optimize your experience while at the parks. Plus, we can explore multiple booking options for you to help you find the one that best fits your needs.
What are your Embark and Equip sessions?
Just like a trek or adventure guide, we aim to provide services throughout your entire journey.
Embark sessions are free initial consultations that come with all of our services. We use this time to understand your familiarity with the parks, the effort you have already put into planning, and what you feel like would be most beneficial for you moving forward.
Equip sessions are opportunities for you to gain insight, ask questions and get equipped you for your trip. Our first few times together we will focus on planning and overall strategy. As we move closer to your adventure date, we will start to focus more on touring strategy when in the parks and how to adapt your plan when inevitable issues arise.
Finally, like any good guide, we don't just equip you and then let you head out on your adventure on your own. We walk with you along the way. As part of our
Trek and Expedition services, we offer text or phone support during your trip.
