Enjoying our Disney vacation and owe many thanks to this girl!!! She is great!!! She has gone above and beyond to help my family enjoy our trip to Disney!!! She was very willing to price many different packages to fit our large family! She helped book fast passes, give advice on dates to avoid large crowds, fast pass recommendations, places to eat…and very quick to get all your questions answered!!! She’s very organized too!!! This is your Disney girl!!! Let her book your next Disney Vacation!! – Tina, Hendersonville, NC

We live in Northern California and have taken the kids to Disneyland their whole lives. My oldest is 22! Christi planned our most recent trip and we experienced the parks in a whole new light. Not only did she streamline the hotel/park tickets/dining reservations/etc process at no extra cost… she helped us better understand the Max Pass technology; booked us at a beautiful new restaurant; pointed out a dinner/show combination that was fantastic! We even rode rides that were new to us! Disneyland and Disney World operate differently, and Christi understands these differences and how to make it work for the specific needs and wants within a family. I could go on and on! – Jill, Los Altos, CA

Christi is hands down the rock star of organizing a Disney trip. As a former Disney naysayer, I can tell you that she made my first trip easy, fun and magical! She has that rare combination of attention to every last detail without being rigid. That’s not easy to achieve! Knowing that you don’t have to worry about where you’re staying, playing or eating leaves a whole lot of brain space for just having fun and being present with family. On the few occasions when plan A hit a snag, it was always a seamless transition to plan B. Oh, and she totally got that a woman in her 50s needs a hug from Pooh as much as (or even more than) a child does. A puffy white-gloved thumbs up for Christi! – Gail, Providence, RI

Christi was with us on my daughter’s high school musical arts trip. Thanks to Christi, I now have dreamy cravings of the Dole Whip dessert…. yum! She knew all of the best ways to see the parks we visited…she helped us maximize our short trip to Epcot and knows the best places to eat and shop! I will be planning with her for our family Disney Vacation! – Lisa, Hendersonville, NC

On my Festival Disney trip with my high school, Christi Hughes not only helped me set up My Disney Experience App, but she also helped me book Fast Passes. She acted as my groups chaperone, and she even helped me reactivate my account when it accidentally got deleted. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking to plan a Disney trip! – Sage, Hendersonville, NC

I recently took a trip with my son to Disney, and Christi was our travel agent. She made recommendations based on my son’s age and my bandwidth for parks, and she did a great job pulling it all together. We stayed at the animal kingdom lodge, and it couldn’t have been more appropriate for us. We had elected not to pay the additional fees for the savannah room, but when we arrived, we were upgraded, and I have a feeling that it was because Christi let them know what a special trip it would be for us. Each morning, my son would wake up and run to the window and greet the zebras that were just outside!! I’m not much of a planner, and was really pleased to have Christi’s help through the process. It was smooth and it wasn’t intimidating, and we will definitely visit Disney again soon. If you’re considering traveling to Disney, I highly recommend Christi’s services. Thanks so much!!!! – Laura, Hendersonville, NC

Christi was amazing… she answered all my questions and helped instruct us on the latest fast passes and park dining. She helped me with how to negotiate some old “no expiration” tickets I had and hotel picks. Thank you so much Christi and “Ears” for helping us have a great Disney vacay! – Katie, Hendersonville, NC

I had probably messaged 2-3 other travel agents prior to finding Christi Hughes. I didn’t get a comforting/informative response from either of the other travel agents. BUT when I messaged Christi her response to me let me know she was the perfect person to plan our Disney trip! She was so thorough with everything and very detail oriented. I was highly impressed with the emails she sent me. There was 7 of us in our party (5 kids and 2 adults!). She made sure to accommodate all! She woke up early to book the best fast passes for us AND she made restaurant reservations, which made our experience even better! She went above and beyond! The only hard work we had to do was walking in the parks. Christi had every park schedule, map, trivia line busters, tips, etc. ALL printed out for us in a folder which was super helpful! I highly recommend Christi and WILL be using her in the future. Thanks, Christi for making our Disney Trip so magical and everything we could dream of! – Megan, Hendersonville, NC

My experience with Ears was so easy and stress free! You literally tell your agent the things you want to do, eat and see, sit back, watch your agent provide the magic! I’ll definitely use EE again and again! I highly recommend Christi Hughes! She is so AWESOME! – Cindy, Whittier, NC

Christi was very helpful with planning our vacation. She always answered my questions and concerns right away. Unfortunately, we had to cancel due to pandemic. When we plan our trip in the future, we will definitely use her! Wendy, Cherryville, NC

Christi was an incredible joy to work with! I literally would not have survived our trip without her :). She was so thorough, extremely responsive, and spot on with all of her recommendations. I can’t even put into words how helpful she was – Christi went above and beyond in every single way and we are so so grateful!! – Courtney, Greer, SC

Christi was amazing the whole time, from start to finish, she answered any questions I had even the days we were in the park. – Dave, Denver, NC

I have raved about Christi Hughes at Ears of Experience to many throughout my community! You all, and Christi, do an amazing job at ensuring a Disney vacation is one to remember! Ears of Experience has agents on staff that are sure to make your Disney vacation one that has memories that will last a lifetime. A stress-free vacation to Disney might be unheard of for some, but when you use Ears of Experience, it is guaranteed. – Emily, Duncan, SC

Christi Hughes with Ears of Experience from day 1 has been on her game with phone calls, texts, and emails answering our crazy questions and keeping us up to date. Christi made our resort villa reservations, got our park reservations, and scored us some character dining reservations. She provided us with a daily itinerary which included tips as well. Christi is just the nicest person and we are lucky to have found her. – Jackie, Hendersonville, NC

Christi worked with us tirelessly for two years (we postponed our original trip a year due to Covid). She took the time to understand my needs, worries, what was important to my family, etc. I joked that she was my psychologist and my travel agent! She gave us tips and tricks customized to my family and really took all the stress out of planning the perfect first trip for my girls (and my husband and I). Planning a Disney trip can be overwhelming, I really don’t think I could have done it without Christi. I’m so thankful for her guidance and assistance and have already sent two families her way because…they NEED her! She was available to us while we were in Orlando too, which allowed me to relax knowing I had support if/when I needed it! – Jill, Sturbridge, MA

Christi Hughes was simply amazing from the start of our trip planning through the duration of our Disney stay! She shared a wealth of helpful information that made our decision making so much easier as she immediately understood the experience we wanted to provide to our family! She secured princess rooms for our granddaughters, encouraged magic bands, memory maker package, park passes, and character dining reservations. She provided a daily itinerary specific to our family and reached out by text multiple times daily to help us navigate our experience! And when our flights were canceled at 9:30 pm the night before we were scheduled to fly, she immediately collaborated with Disney to adjust our check in dates and shifted our park entry dates – even rising at 5:00 am to increase our chances of getting into Magic Kingdom on New Year’s Day! I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience we had in Disney and I credit Christi Hughes for every magical second! She is a lovely and remarkable person who always went far beyond our expectations! I would highly recommend Christi to anyone traveling to Disney as you are guaranteed the most wonderful experience!!! – Karen, Blandford, MA

I couldn’t ask for anything more. From the personalized assistance, being up in the early AM with us to make sure we got reserved for rides and being there to answer anything and everything, the entire experience was top notch. – Melissa, Massillon, OH

This is a review for the similarly situated grandparents, neither prolific nor passionate about using smartphone apps, who are considering spending a fortune taking family members on a Disney vacation. After having worked with Christi Hughes for our 12.18.22 trip, we would never consider a Disney vacation without her. Our recommendation is that when you work with her, contact her early about your trip. She is very responsive and fun to work with. She helped us pick the best resort and ticket options. She walked us through the now-required Disney app and the new (to us) on-line strategies for booking rides. She guided us in the selection of restaurants for special meals, and then she awoke early two months before our trip to make sure the restaurant reservations were booked.  She showed us how to order to-go meals at each park. She provided us with detailed itineraries for each day we were at the park to make sure we got on all the rides we wanted with minimum wait times. And then, unbelievably, once we were at the park, she continued to make reservations for us for the very busy Guardians of the Galaxy ride, and she continued to check in with us via text to make sure everything was going smoothly. Thanks to Christi, we had one of our most enjoyable family vacations ever. – Stephanie, Atlanta, GA

Christi, from Ears of Experience, made our Disney World a true trip of a lifetime. My husband and I planned THE trip to Disney world for the 2 of us, our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons, ages 4 and 7. Start to finish, we were expertly guided through options, recommendations, must do’s, don’t do’s, quick answers to help needed while in the parks, and the daily checkins + help getting through some pretty complex logistics of virtual queues, Lightening Lane, event and dining reservations, and more. Our Disney trip exceeded all our expectations and I simply can’t imagine how we could have done it without Christi. She will forever be part of the amazing memories we have from 7 spectacular days at Disney. We wouldn’t think of using anyone else to plan our next Disney trip. Thank you, Christi! – Gretchen, Essex, MA
