Powers attends exclusive Disney conference

Sheree Powers from Travel By Nelson was among the more than 375 top-producing travel agency owners and managers who recently gathered at the Disneyland Resort for the 2008 Disney's EarMarked Conference -- a program especially designed for "Authorized Disney Vacation Planners."

As a conference delegate, Powers was among the first to learn that everyone who visits a Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort theme park on their birthday in 2009 can get in free.

Powers saw firsthand the scope of the new immersive experiences that will be part of a campaign as Disney Parks embraces a trend in family travel called "celebration vacations."

Travel By Nelson has been in business in Woodbury for 20 years, and has established itself as an area expert on Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney vacations.

The business has been designated by Disney Destinations as an "Authorized Disney Vacation Planner" based on its support in selling Disney vacations.

A number of travel counselors at Travel By Nelson have received extensive training on Disney theme parks, resorts, cruises, vacations packages and more, and can provide professional assistance in planning customized Disney vacations.

In fact, one reason the agency has been designated an "Authorized Disney Vacation Planner" is that at least half of its leisure travel counselors are College of Disney Knowledge graduates. The College of Disney Knowledge is an in-depth online comprehensive training course that allows agents to develop an expertise in planning Disney vacations.
