The Story

Darren was invited to become a Disney Destinations Specialist with Magical Vacations Travel in 2009 after being a loyal client for many years. But just as he completed his training, the economy began to decline. Many people were worried about their finances but people still wanted to go to Disney. Darren started on a mission to find ways to get his clients to Walt Disney World while saving as much money as possible. He began taking notes from all over the web, tracking offers, crunching numbers, and searching for unadvertised Disney World discounts. He uncovered so much information, the website Save at WDW was born.
