My name is Alicia, a DreamTrips member for the last two years. It was important to me to be able to take my four-year-old son on a vacation and thanks to DreamTrips I was able to do it. It was his very first vacation and it was to Disneyland!
Being able to take my son on his first trip was definitely on my bucket list, because I remembered having my first trip at his age and I really wanted to give him the same wonderful experience. The vacation was 4 days and 3 nights long. It was great being in the big city of Los Angeles (Anaheim) and walking around Downtown. Disneyland was so close to our hotel! It was amazing not having to worry about transportation or parking — such a relief! The lines to even park a car were longer than what I remember! While the convenience and time-saving part was great, my greatest joy was, of course, seeing my son’s face light up when he saw all of his favorite characters! He cut the line to meet Jack Skellington, his most favorite. He just ran up to him from the Jack Store and interrupted a visit. I felt bad, but he was just so excited to see him in person he couldn’t contain himself.
I had price-shopped this trip before I became a member. The best I could find was the same length trip, but with a hotel that was further away, and it was $1000 more for only two of us! When I booked the trip through my membership, my mom and niece were able to join us and I STILL saved money! With a hotel further away, it would have been way more hassle to get to and from the park. Plus, DreamTrips also included breakfast. I could not have asked for more.
I would highly recommend contacting us if you have a bucket list trip you’d like to take!
