We are so grateful for all the help and expertise that Laura shared with us as she planned our very first family vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. Whether it was helping us pick the right days at the right parks, selecting the best resort for our stay or answering about logistics ("How do we get from our hotel to our character dinner?") or about a million silly questions ("So, how do we do THAT again?"), Laura was with us every step of the way to make sure that everything went smoothly and that we would have the BEST experience possible. We will definitely be coming back to Laura for our next vacation. Thank you so much for making our trip so MAGICAL!

Laura helped us find destinations based on our requirements. Precise planning--no unwanted surprises. If we decide on another trip, we will contact Laura. Already have given her name to friends who are planning a trip. This was a special trip for us and we had confidence in Laura that she would take care of us--and she did!

Laura assisted me with planning a trip to Disney World for my son's 8th birthday. He and my nephew were thrilled with how well planned the trip was from the Fast Pass Reservations to the restaurants we dined at. With Laura's help I came back from the trip under budget which is a major accomplishment considering how expensive Disney World can be. I have already recommended her to family and friends and will be planning a Disney Cruise trip with her for 2016! She is the absolute BEST!!!! Thank you Laura!!!

Laura helped make our Disney family trip of 17 truly magical. She took care of everything! We didn't have to worry about dining reservation, resort reservation, transportation, park ticket, among other things. The packet she sent before departure was super helpful and allowed us to plan our trip to the tee. She was able to get us every single dining reservation on our wish list, and if you have ever been to Disney, you know this is a feat in itself. Laura took all of the grunt work and headache out of planning, which made out trip so much more relaxed and enjoyable. We will certainly be using her service again! Thanks Laura!!!!

Laura is a Disney expert. She's very knowledgeable regarding everything you want to experience in whatever budget you have. I have recommended 2 friends to book their Disney vacation with her and I believe they are booked. Thanks again for everything you did for our group of 17.

Expert international trip planning

Laura Slawter at Aladdin Travel did a fantastic job making the arrangements for our recent 21-day trip to France and Switzerland. We gave her guidelines during our first meeting and followed them to plan a great itinerary. The hotels and activities she chose were exactly what we wanted, with plenty of time for us to do some exploring on our own. She took care of many arrangements that seemed too complex for us (such as a Seine dinner cruise, a fireworks display at Versailles, a skip-the-line tour of the Eiffel Tower, and a ride on the Glacier Express). She made it easy for us by providing timetables and vouchers to drivers and activities. Before we left, Laura also provided some great travel tips (such as getting a 5-day metro and museum pass) and restaurant ideas. We even got a separate "train itinerary" that was easy to follow for our travels around Switzerland. Everything went off without a hitch. Thanks Laura!

Laura was extremely helpful! We had never used a travel agent before this trip, I have always booked myself. I looked online at all the pricing and then decided to give Laura a shot at it. Surprisingly enough she was cheaper than any pricing I found online myself. Not to mention the friendliness, and superior customer service she delivered. I admit I was skeptical, however very pleased with the service she delivered. We had a glitch in our travel plans and she jumped right on it to take care of the issue. She took care of everything so all we had to do was enjoy the trip. She was available by email and phone every time I had a question or concern. We will DEFINITELY use Laura for our travel plans in the future! Thanks again Laura!

This trip to Alaska was extremely well organized. The only thing I would have changed would have been to given us 2 days in Denali opposd to one. After a 9 hour train ride, we arrived late afternoon, & had to leave around 1:30 the next day. We could have skipped Mt. McKinley all together as there wasn't much there to do. Overall, it was a wonderful trip with beautiful scenery, new experiences & friendships, & memories to last a lifetime! Great job Laura Slawter & thank you do much for your organization in putting this trip together!
