The Genies

The Genies (travel planners) of Friend Like Me Travel Co. believe in magic.  More importantly, we believe in making magic for our guests.  We know that behind every vacation we plan there is a family using their hard-earned vacation funds and time off to create memories with their family that will last a lifetime.  That’s why at the forefront of every vacation we plan is a desire to help you have the best possible experience.

0 hours

...that's how long the average family spends JUST researching things during the
Walt Disney World planning process when they book on their own.

"Before I started working with Abby, I was struggling with everything!! I had no idea what I was doing or how to even get started on planning a big vacation. My experience with her was beyond AMAZING!! Abby and her team literally did everything for me. Watching my daughter cry happy tears when she got to meet Mickey and Minnie at Animal Kingdom was my favorite moment. Seeing the pure joy on her face, made every cent I spent on the trip worth it. Abby and her team take very good of you. They answer all questions and make sure your needs and wants are fulfilled."

"I was having a hard time booking a room within our budget and that would fit a family our size when the Disney website said nothing was available. The level of attention to detail paid to your individual family is taken into account and special moments are created that otherwise may not be if booking on your own. There are options that only a Genie can find sometimes! Cierra always takes great care of us! She was quick with answers to our questions, let us know when new events were announced for the dates during our trip, send our kiddos activities to do during travel, and even sent us a snack pack at our resort to enjoy while waiting for our bus to the parks!"

"Being our first trip I wasn’t really sure what to do and how to navigate through the trip or how to go about getting the most out of my Disney trip. Our experience with our agent was great! I was given so much information, support, and guidance! And Hunter was very quick to respond to all of my questions and make all of the changes I needed from when I originally booked up to my vacation! Our favorite part of our vacation was eating at Tusker House! We found that the most important reason to use Friend Like Me Travel Co. was having someone to ask all of your questions to and do all of the behind-the-scenes work is so nice and helps take the stress out of planning a vacation!"

"Before we started working with Mackenzie, we were struggling with everything! It was all so overwhelming! Our experience working with her was fantastic - Mackenzie went above and beyond to help every step of the way. Working with a Friend Like Me Travel Co. agent like her makes it easy to have everything done by one person & to get advice on all of the details. We especially loved our time spent in Epcot and at our resort (Art of Animation) was great!"

"Sarah made our vacation planning less overwhelming- she spread out deadlines and made it doable and easier to manage. She had great preparation ideas and provided plenty of time for us to gather those essentials to make our experience a good one. You definitely need a Friend Like Me Travel Co. Genie to provide you with help, especially if it is your first experience with Disney. There is so much to know and figure out on your first ever trip. For our family, the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Presentation was a major highlight!

"I was struggling with everything before working with Abby because it was my son’s and I’s first time to go to Disney World. We’ve been to Disneyland and it wasn’t overwhelming to prepare for. Abby provided excellent service. She was able to answer my many questions. My favorite part of the trip was that we ate a lot. My favorite restaurant was the Japanese food. I highly recommend Teppan Edo in Epcot. I also enjoyed Cirque du Soleil. I feel that it’s so worth talking to someone who is experienced and knowledgeable about Disney World. We had so much fun and we will definitely be contacting Abby again very soon."

"Before I started working with Hunter, I was struggling with all of it! I knew I wanted to take my family to Disney but didn’t know where to start. Working with Hunter was fabulous. She had all the knowledge that I wanted to know. She was very helpful in guiding us in the right direction. Hunter was wonderful at telling me when to book the parks and dining reservations. Our family loved meeting the characters and riding the Teacups and the Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. I think the most important reason to work with a Friend Like Me Travel Co. agent is so you know when to do certain rides, and learn about the lightning lane passes."

"I was overwhelmed with all of the options, sifting through reviews for resorts and trying to decide what rides to prioritize before contacting Amanda. She is amazing. She was so informative and went out of her way to make sure we had an incredible trip! She answers questions quickly and thoroughly and made the planning portion a million times easier! Having Amanda’s help greatly reduced the stress and made me feel like a pro when I was in the park. She gave me a plan as to when to wake up to get genie plus, what rides to prioritize and how to make the best use of our time. We got to see/ experience way more because of her guidance. I loved seeing my nephew's face after meeting a character or going on a fun ride (Slinky Dog Dash was his favorite)!

"When we first started looking for a location for an anniversary trip we had no idea where to even start looking. Hunter listened to what we wanted with our trip and sent us a list of multiple options for us to look through! We chose Sandals Ochi. Having so many options of things to do at the resort, we were able to relax and have adventures such as snorkeling without needing to plan or go anywhere else! The ease and knowing everything is going to be taken care of is the most important reason to use a Friend Like Me Travel Co. Genie. "

"I struggled to understand how the parks worked because I had not been to Disney World since 2009 so I really needed help with everything since so much has changed. Mackenzie truly helped me be prepared going into the vacation. She helped plan out our day efficiently from park open to close. Mackenzie guided us in choosing our resort, mapping out our day, picking restaurants in advance, and provided excellent advice on how to best use Genie+. We really wanted to ensure we got to ride all the major rides and Mackenzie gave us great advice on what to ride when and what to use our Genie+ for. Our dinner at the Contemporary resort was also amazing, and with Mackenzie's help, we were able to get a reservation while the fireworks were going off at Magic Kingdom. We loved our disney trip and we can't wait to go back!"

"Abby was amazing through every step. we booked, canceled plans, rebooked and she never complained at all. I would have random questions at all hours, she would answer. she made sure we got prepared to go. Even while down at Disney, I would message her and she would get back to us asap. Abby is amazing. I can't thank her enough for how much she made this so special and easy for us. Book through Abby, plus the magic is still 100000% at Disney, even with COVID. We felt so safe. and Disney made us feel so special."

Cierra did a fantastic job planning our recent trip to Disney! I am a full time school nurse as well as a part-time student at ISU. With 2 kiddos, work, and school in the midst of a PANDEMIC, I had major anxiety about fitting in time to plan and schedule our Disney trip. A friend suggested contacting Cierra to plan our trip and I am soooo glad I did. I gave her the basic info we were wanting out of the trip and she took over the rest. She has a lot of experience with Disney, so she had excellent ideas and recommendations for us. She responded very quickly to the million questions I had about Disney in covid times and if she didn't know the answer right away, she knew who to contact to get the info. Due to her connections, we were also able to get a discount on our resort and upgrade to the pirate room for our son. During the trip, I had a few questions and she promptly responded so I did not have to pause our vacation to find the information for myself. I would highly recommend her, even if you are a Disney booking pro! The Schroeder family thanks you Cierra for helping us have a magical time 💕

"I didn’t know anything about Disney World when I started the planning process with Abby. She was perfect and very helpful. Walt Disney World vacations are confusing and an agent like a Friend Like Me Travel Co. will help guide you in the right direction. They will also do the “dirty work” and make all of your reservations. I absolutely loved the experience of being at Walt Disney World."
