YORK FAMILY

Ashley is incredible! My family had THE BEST vacation, and we owe it all to Ashley. If you are on the fence about a Disney vacation, or on the fence about using a service to assist you in planning, jump off that fence and reach out to Ashley. Seriously!
We had been in central Florida visiting family when the thought of going to Magic Kingdom crossed our minds. We had never been there before, and we were hesitant to schedule a first visit so last-minute. We had heard that a Disney trip requires a lot of planning, especially when you are bringing small children… and we would be bringing 3 of them —one 4yo, one infant, and one who is potty training! We were also bringing my mom. We were worried about stamina, long lines for attractions, limited food options, and COVID safety.
Then we remembered something about Fantastical Vacations (we heard about it on social media) and we reached out to Ashley. She was exceptionally quick to respond. She addressed all of our issues and answered all of our questions. Ashley spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with me helping me prepare (I am an over-planner) and she gave me a lot of tips and tricks. She handled the logistics for us and provided us with concrete suggestions to improve our day. Ashley even made herself available to us while we were at the park!
There is no doubt in any of our minds that Ashley is the key component to why we had such a successful day at Disney. We used her suggestions to get to and from the park seamlessly, and her tips about Genie+ allowed us to walk on to almost every attraction (we never waited more than 10 minutes!). Our kids were happy and calm (no tears or melt-downs all day!). We ate a great meal and used our reservation to enjoy immediate seating, and app-ordering to find instant park snacks (Dole Whip — yum!). Throughout the day, my mom kept saying, “Wow, you better thank that Ashley!” Apparently she had been worrying about the day, remembering how tough theme parks can be with small kids. But the day was anything but tough. It was incredibly enjoyable and even relaxed! Who thought anyone could say that about an amusement park with small kids?!
Long story short, we are SO GLAD we worked with Ashley. We highly recommend her. Just reach out! You won’t regret it.

BOOKER FAMILY

Ashley made every single one of our dreams come true! We asked and she delivered! My overall goal was to EXPERIENCE Disney like never before! Ashley is so knowledgeable about everything Disney has to offer from in-park and out of park experiences!
Ashley secured ALL of our food reservations at some of Disney’s most popular spots. She also managed to secure ALL of our experiences at Star Wars Galaxy Edge and Topolino’s Terrace, at the crack of dawn (icing on the cake)! Ashley provided us with tips on using Genie+ which cut down our time standing in long lines for rides!
Thank you for working your magic and going above & beyond to make this trip even more special! We are still in awe!

ALVAREZ/LANZO LADIES

Ashley helped my best friend and I book a girls trip for my 29th birthday. She helped us decide the best resort for our price range and activities we wanted to do. We had an amazing time, she took care of everything from dinner to spa reservations and more! There is no way we could have done this on our own and I will definitely be using her again!

RAWLINS FAMILY

My family and I just got back from an incredible four day Disney vacation - that I am CERTAIN would not have been as successful or incredible as it was without the help of Ashley.
Back in the fall, we were toying with the idea of taking a Disney trip - mainly because we couldn't fathom adding another toy to our playroom, but wanted to be able to give our kids something special for Christmas, especially after the 2 years they have had. Ashley and I used to teach together, and I had seen her posting on social media about her new endeavors with Fantastical Vacations, and figured I'd reach out to see if she might be able to help us with our trip. Hands down, the BEST decision I made.
Ashley handled everything we wanted her to handle - which was a lot. I know for a fact she spent a lot of time getting quotes for us for various resort options, since we decided a little late in the game to move forward with a trip. She even got up super early, and had multiple screens going to snag us our preferred dining reservations. She walked me through the Genie+ process multiple times, just to make sure I understood, and that we were able to get the most out of our trip.
Just a few moments that I feel like make Ashley shine are... texting me at 6:45am on our first full day reminding me to book our Genie+, .... ensuring we had connecting rooms with my parents, even though they were not available at the time of booking... being 100% available via phone/text during our entire trip, AND... calling the restaurant we had a dining reservation at, when we ended up in a longer than expected wait for a very popular ride, and I was freaking out that we were going to miss it (spoiler alert - we made it to our reservation on time!)
Ashley is a Disney expert. You can tell she truly loves Disney, and what she does. She knows exactly what can make or break a trip - but, she also really takes the time to make sure she knows what YOU want from your trip, and does everything in her power to make that happen. You will not regret using Ashley to plan your next Fantastical trip!

VIERA FAMILY

Ashley goes above and beyond for her clients. I am a busy mom who desired so greatly to plan a Disney trip for my family, but had NO clue where to begin. Ashley made our first trip with her so enjoyable and exciting. It took so much stress off of me. She helped me with every detail small and large to really ensure this trip was a dream come true. We were so pleased, we immediately booked our second trip with Ashley and thanks to her I can look forward to a stress free vacation. A bonus is that you can be sure when booking with Ashely she is on top of all of the perks and will keep you updated on savings options, even after booking, and even keep all of your preferences at the top of her priority list to ensure that your Disney trip is customized to you and your family. Thank you much Ashley. I am so thankful to have your help with our Disney planning!

RIVERA/ODOM/HARVEY LADIES

I planned a Universal & Disney trip for me, my sister, and my mom to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday and Ashley Hizer was the BEST at coordinating everything! We had a gluten allergy and a vegetarian in our bunch and she was able to help us coordinate the best food of all time that hit all of those parameters. She answered all of my questions, gave us fantastic tips, and put everything together seamlessly. She had super quick response times when we were on our trip and was literally there from start to finish. Working with her was the best experience ever and we are already planning two more future trips with her!!

Disney & Universal are a BLAST but you don't want to navigate that road alone. There is just too much info out there to digest on your own and too much to coordinate! Can't recommend Ashley enough!

PUGH FAMILY

Ashley planned an amazing trip to WDW for our family. She booked everything we wanted and spent as much time as we needed to explain everything with Genie+, rider swap, tips & tricks, etc. We loved working with her! The pre-trip documents she provides are SO HELPFUL. I loved being able to see her recommended restaurants, ride height requirements and suggested order of rides for each park all in one place. She has the best food tips and is such a wealth of Disney knowledge! I don't hesitate to recommend Ashley's planning services - I'm booking a cruise with her next!
