One of the best trips ever. Perfect trip for Disney lovers and anyone interested in how Disney functions. Lots of special things and lots of Backstage time.

By Charlotte R on Aug 14, 2013

I was extremely pleased with my agent who was very patient in answering all my questions and helping me with a last-minute problem. The trip was great. Disney Adventures for children is the best way to travel. My grandchildren loved the trip. We are already thinking of next summer's trip. I have already suggested to my friends that they consider Disney and book through Affordable Tours. Thanks again for your part in making this a trip to remember.
