I was thinking the same thing. It seems funny to me that all three repsonses came as first posts and were glowing about this company.

I will be booking w/ them for an Easter 2012 trip. We have always stayed on site (since 1996) but this trip will be with 3 teenage girls for their spring break. I really can't afford 2 rooms or a villa at Disney properties as I have in the past so I did some research and will be using Vacation Strategy for my trip next year. I emailed my requests/questions and Humaira called me back within an hour. She was able to answer all of my questions.

No need to be skeptical about me, I got a quote from them and that made me skeptical about them thats why I would like to know if anyone other than newbie posters have dealt with them.

I know - I'm a first time poster too...but I am also wanting some feedback on this company also. Received a decent rate quote. Looking at going again and due to family size we are a moderate plus or at least 2 rooms at value resorts. Want to either stay on-site or very close on this next visit.

WDW History is 1974 - offsite (almost a baby); 2002 & 2007 AS Sports; 2009 Polynesian; 2010 Contemporary & AS Pop Century and 2011 off-site villa. (First time off-site since traveling with my own family.)

Cool Also looking for reviews

I am booked w/this company as well, did some online checking nothing stands out, but is a new company since 2010. I got my email reservation quick and its in the owners name and will be reissued in my name as we get closer to the date. This seems to be the process as I have read in other threads. I would feel better though if someone completed their vacation and could report.

Smile Booking with Vacation Strategy

I know that I am a newbie poster, but I can very honestly tell you my vacation was wonderful. I am a Disney Vacation Club member and just wanted to go somewhere different. A friend told me about Bonnet Creek so I searched the internet to find a good deal. I came across Vacation Strategy and loved the price. Just like everyone else I was afraid to pay out money not knowing the company. I checked with my credit card company and they said if I had any problems (like no room when I got there) I could dispute the transaction and get my money back. The first 4 nights of our vacation we stayed at Animal Kingdom Villas. It was very nice, as you would expect from Disney. Then we moved to Bonnet Creek for 7 nights. I walked into the 3 Bedroom Presidential Suite and WOW it was beautiful. Probably nicer than Animal Kingdom. The staff was great and the grandkids loved the pools and activities. Vacation Strategy was wonderful and honestly I plan to book with them again in Jan- February 2012. They honestly were wonderful and upfront. I would be willing to answer any questions anyone wants to post.

Thanks for any info you all can give.
I used Vacation Strategy in the past and just booked a Jan-Feb 2012 vacation with them. They are great to work with and have a great price. I strongly recommend them. If you would like to PM me with additional questions, feel free to do so.

This feels a little 'self promoting' too me and I'm for that but do it honestly. Like Hi we're XYZ company. Introduction. Welcome others to chime in....this doesn't feel right.


Ken Price is recommended by everyone and their mother and he's on the boards vacationupgrade . com

Otherwise, great experience personally with ebay...

We got a SPRING BREAK week 6 nights in 2 bedroom [not pres] for $599

I can't help you with Vacation Strategy. Never heard of it. But, I can tell you that I spend the entire month of November at Wyndham's Bonnet Creek in 2009 and loved it. We were in the main building (only 4 stories tall, I believe). Maybe it was a little more, but it's really low compared to the rest. We didn't use the shuttles every day, but we did some and it was pretty easy.

We would sit on our balcony at night and watch Epcot fireworks and sometimes, Magic Kingdom was going on at the same time and we could see the higher ones there while watching Illuminations.

We stayed there again this last October. My only complaint is that the elevators get busy in the main building on certain days, because of all the people coming in to hear the timeshare spiel. Other than that, love it and will stay again if I run out of DVC points.

I am with you both - my skeptic meter was pinging big time! I'll be more than happy to be wrong.

Hi all - I am a new user, but came across this thread when looking for reviews on Vacation Strategy. My family and I are planning a last minute trip to Disney World in a few weeks and we got an AMAZING deal from Vacation Stragegy. I was a bit skeptical - even more so after I found this thread. However, I decided to go for it because it was too good to pass up. I paid my deposit, then received a booking email from Wyndham within a few days. Before paying my remaining balance, I called Wyndham directly with the confirmation number I was given by Vacation Stragegy to confirm my reservation and it seems completely legit. I spoke with someone at the front desk and was able to confirm room type, dates, etc. (and the reservation is in my name - not someone else's). I'm really not worried about Vacation Stragegy at this point - a lot of my fears have been alleviated. However, I will repost when we get back (mid-September) and let you all know how it went!

Wow! Not only was Vacation Strategy able to get you a great deal, they were able to get Wyndham to change their procedures on transmission of renter data from the Wyndham system to the resort. I don't mean to be skeptical, but from the experiences of many trusted posters individual reservations aren't transmitted to the property's system until about two weeks before the reservation begins.

I would love to see someone who has booked or said that they were using Vacation Strategy actually come back and do a review. Have a great time!

We check in the 8th, so it is about 2 weeks out, I guess...Now you're making me nervous, again! But, I did talk to Wyndham directly, and I'm in the system. I'll keep you posted!
