Mouse Fan Travel

Does anyone have experience using them? They are affiliated with Allears, but I still would like to know if anyone has firsthand experience. They have some awesome rates for verandahs...
TIA

We are going on our first cruise in December and booked with Coleen at Mouse Fan Travel. She has been wonderful so far. She also helped my DSIL book and plan her first trip to Disney earlier this spring and was great.

We use them for every Mousefest Cruise. They have been wonderful. No complaints and are very knowledgeable about Disney Cruises.

They do have good rates.

I know that Allears is very exact when they advertise sponsors, I would trust anyone they recommend. Like the sponsors on this board, the gurus behind the scenes on these boards want to ensure that they provide good info for using the sponsors.

Mouse Fan Travel...

I did not use Mouse fan travel because until now I did not know who they were.. I went threw The Magic For Less and I got a really great deal with OBSC from my agent. She quoted me over 600.00 less then what I was finding. I was looking to stay under 3500.00 for a family of 4 and she did it!!!

The magic for less

We also used The Magic For Less. They had good prices and OBC's too.

Our rep from Magic For Less has been just wonderful. She is very quick to answer any questions or requests. We used Deb and I would highly recommend them.

We've booked our October 08 cruise with Mouse Fan Travel. We're working with Stephanie. So far, she's been great. Very easy to contact and has quickly answered any questions. We booked our cruise over a year in advance, so actually, their rate at the time wasn't any better than Disney's, but we got an onboard credit with them (just $25, though - I didn't know at the time if that was good or not).

Another one here who booked with MFT/MEI Travel. Why?

I got quotes from a lot of authorized disney TA's. Most were down right frustrating. They took to long, never received from one TA, the communication made me feel like 'pain in the butt' or 'just another paying customer, boring' and multiple TA's tried to make me book a cruise in the more expensive periods, while I asked for a quote for the financially most attractive 7 day cruise within a period of 4 months. Shouldn't be to hard to find me a cruise that doesn't make your bill sound like 'jackpot!!' if your willing to go during the cheaper season and are looking more than 18 months before sailingdate, but turned out it was too difficult for multiple of them.

Anyhow, MFT. What made me book with them? The combination of sharp pricing and the 'feel'. It felt right from the first email and the first phonecall only made that feeling stronger. Them offering me a price that was at least $100,- lower than the others (for the same cruisedate, yep I had them check the same date after some proven not to be able to do that work on themselves), when looking at the combination of price AND offered obc. I mean; nice that TA X offered me a $500,- obc, but not If that means I have to pay $600,- more than when booking with TA Y that only gves me a $100,- obc.

So far my TA has proven herself to be the right choice. She gets everything done, doesn't matter that some things are needing some serious sorting out and a lot of time (somehow WDW always seems to screw up my december reservation, thank god dcl doesn't seem to do the same thing).

On top of that; after I'd gotten a lower quote from a respectable -though not authorized disney- TA, she immediately met that quote with no questions asked. I knew I had allready gotten a good deal with her, so it wasn't like she was pulling my leg and had loads of extra commision to toy with to give me the impression of 'reducing' my overly charged price.

Always keep wishing, dreaming and hoping.
