What happens when you buy a ticket to London

September 7, 2010

After working for Disney for some time now, I have learned a thing or two about wishes. I have seen wishes been dumped onto a shooting star, I have seen wishes thrown into a well, but most importantly I have seen wishes come true. Now at Disney, we do whatever we can to help make other people’s wishes come true. However in our case we had to do it for ourselves.

This weekend we purchased our round trip tickets to London. One of the biggest things to show that this dream is becoming reality. So… how did we do it? Great question. Let me break it down for you.

1. Keep a watchful eye. Colin had been watching the prices of plane tickets for months now. By keeping your eyes on prices on a regular basis, you are giving yourself a reference to spot a good deal. Great job Colin!

2. Use your trusted resources. The STA website is a great trusted source to find good deals. Use those types of websites that are advocates for student travel.

3. Act fast. This Sunday night I was in the middle of House of Blues when I got a call from Eric saying that Colin found a great deal. I felt horrible leaving my friends but I knew that if we waited till morning, the deal might not be there. So when all was said and done, it might have been 2 a.m., but I think it was worth it.

After 4 attempts to purchase the tickets and 1 late night phone call to Chase banks, Eric was finally able to buy three round trip tickets to London, costing each of us $605 roundtrip. A pretty outstanding deal! It might not have been as easy as the wave if a wand, but I think this wish came true in a pretty beautiful way. I mean come on, watch the video and see for yourself!

    Great news for the three of you. Tom and I do the same thing; always looking, always watching prices. I’m glad you get this great opportunity!
