TORONTO, Oct. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - A new independent website has launched with a focus on Disney travel information for Canadians. 1923MainStreet.com is Canada's newest source for advice, tips, news and recommendations for Disney vacations.
"There is no shortage of Disney information available online, but there was a void when it came to a comprehensive source of information for Canadians," said Mike Belobradic, Founder and CEO of 1923 Main Street. "I wanted to cut through the clutter with Canadian-specific content and recommendations that help make sense of the sometimes overwhelming number of options travelers encounter when trying to make good choices for their family."
The site provides information that is tailored to Canadian travelers (such as options for travel routes and the best times to visit), along with travel aids for the DIY planners to help narrow down their options. "Guidebooks are great resources," said Mike, "but sometimes people just want to know 'tell me where I should eat and where I should stay.' People want a source close to home that they can trust to provide expert advice from personal experience."
Mike's Disney travel experience began in 1966 with the family's first trip to Disneyland in California. Once Walt Disney World opened in Florida in 1971, his family immediately became regular visitors and Mike has spent nearly 90 weeks at Walt Disney World Resort--including over 500 visits to the parks. "I have seen Walt Disney World grow, evolve and change over the course of 40-plus years so I know quite a bit about it." And Mike's perspective is distinctly Canadian. "If you are looking for where to find Tim Horton's coffee in Walt Disney World, I can tell you that," he said.
Much of the inspiration for the site came from Mike's Canadian clients during his time as Travel Advisor specializing in Disney vacations. "The fact that there is so much Disney travel information online actually made it more confusing for many clients--not easier." Mike made it his mission to develop a Canadian site that offers focused information in a user-friendly format.
The Canadian content on 1923MainStreet.com goes beyond travel advice. "Most Canadians don't realize that Walt Disney himself had roots firmly planted in Canadian soil," adds Mike. "So I made sure to provide that unique bit of Canadiana on 1923MainStreet.com as well."
Highlights of the site include a custom-designed "Resort Selector" to help guests choose which Disney World hotel may be best for them; a "Walt Disney World Primer" that focuses on the five most important decisions you must make when booking a Disney World vacation; and "Recommended Dining" lists that help to steer you towards a more enjoyable dining experience and cut through the large number of choices available to you at Disney destinations.
