Small world vacations

I just received this months mouse savers email and it mentions small world vacations. They are offering up to $1000 OBC for DCL 2013. I was just wondering if anyone has ever used their services and if you were pleased.

Yes, but let me say this up front, my sister is one of the agents with them. She books everything Disney for me. I have a cruise booked for Dec. 2013 out of Galveston and it's one of the 7nights that was changed to a 4 night. My sister is actually rebooking it for me this morning since the new rates will be out for the people affected by the change. I got a $100 OBC for my cruise. What you book determines how much your OBC is. I know alot of the agents with Small World and they are all great!

I have used small world vacations, the same travel agent over those years, since 2006. She has been wonderful. I would definitely recommend them!

I have used them and they are OK..not great, but OK. I won't use them again though. I discovered after more than one incident with my last cruise that I'd rather control the booking and deal directly with Disney.

They work for me.. Agent is helpful and I have direct email or phone connection with her. Plus it is a 1800 phone number. Agreed with the previous poster, that you will only get $1000 OBC when you book certain cruises or catagories.

I have also used Small World and we are getting $200 OBC on the cruise we leave on this weekend, but that is because we have two rooms booked.

I have found our agent helpful and have been very satisfied with the service. Most communication is done by e-mail but she does have a phone number and an 800 number where I have left messages and she returns my call. I have only tried to call a few times though, so may have just caught her away from the phone.

I will say we just had a problem where my son had to back out at the last minute and Leslie worked with Disney to get us all shuffled around without having to cancel the reservation and incur cancellation fees.

We are using Small world Vacations for our upcoming WDW/Western Fantasy Cruise May 2013. So far, we have been very pleased. Jo is very helpful and prompt. We also got a good onboard credit, better than most disney travel agencies. She also figured out how to give us all kinds of additional discounts for our WDW vacation. We would def use them again Random question though, does anyone know is Small world does any "thank you" gift baskets for your stateroom upon arrival? thanks!

Agree! We have taken 5 (soon to be 7) cruises through Tanya, and she is great.

We booked with Tanya as well, have been pleased so far. I was under the impression I would receive $100 OBC, while my in-laws had $50 OBC. I just checked with DCL (we leave next week), and they said our OBC was $150, while my in-laws had $125!

We've used Small World for our cruises, great experiences with them.

This last cruise, we had a small snafu since we booked a military rate when only a military dependent would be sailing (before they changed the rule), and when we found out about it even though we were long past the PIF date, my agent offered to make it right by absorbing the cost if we decided to cancel the cruise altogether. It turned out we just had the military service person join us, and had a great time, but I really appreciated the way she stepped up and was able to offer several solutions to our problem!

What is the rule for this now? Just in case DH can't go for some reason- would I not be able to book the military rate?

TIA.....
