Stories inspire us

They transport us to another place and time, while deepening our understanding of ourselves, our family, and the world. Each story brings us closer together by leaving a lasting impression on our hearts and minds.

Stories stay with us

They are the foundation of our memories. The laughter shared over ice cream, the thrill of a first theme park ride, and the awe of watching fireworks—these moments stay with us forever.

Stories are what we do

At Good Story Vacations, we understand that every vacation is filled with family stories. Our commitment to crafting good stories is central to every trip we plan, ensuring that your adventure becomes a collection of unforgettable moments with those you love.

Stories are what we do

Our founder, Amanda Zimmerman, brings a unique perspective to the family vacation. With a creative background as a director, choreographer, actor, and dancer, Amanda understands deeply the power of a good story.
Inspired by her experiences on stage, Amanda founded Good Story Vacations to bring the same focus on story to your travels. Just as a compelling performance captivates an audience and stays in their minds long after the curtain goes down, we aim to craft vacations that engage your family with trips you’ll always remember.

Our travel advisors are trained to think like storytellers, turning your vacation into a seamlessly-orchestrated experience where every detail contributes to some good stories.

100 years of storytelling

Disney's legacy is built on a century of timeless stories that have captured hearts and ignited imaginations across generations. Starting with Steamboat Willie and the introduction of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Disney quickly became synonymous with animated storytelling.
With its first animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Disney then pioneered a new form of family entertainment. Today, modern classics like Moana and Frozen continue this tradition, resonating with audiences worldwide through compelling characters and richly imagined worlds.

We find bits of ourselves in these characters and their adventures, seeing our own dreams and challenges reflected back at us. Through these stories, Disney invites us to believe in the magic of dreams and the power of resilience, fostering a shared experience that transcends time and culture.

Each element is carefully designed to ensure that at the heart of every Disney vacation lies a good story.

"One time I was waiting to meet Winnie the Pooh and then Eeyore walked by and gave me a hug. I also got to meet Tigger and we had a bouncing contest. Tigger said I won but he's a good bouncer, too. I hugged him so tightly that my hat fell off my head and my sunglasses fell off, too. I had a good time with Tigger and we took a picture together, too."
"There's the castle with a star on the top and there's me. A happy memory is me watching Tinker Bell fly by. I waited for the fireworks with my family, but it was fun because there was good music and big fireworks. I liked the movies on the castle because I saw characters I knew on it."
"This drawing is It's Tough to be a Bug! — the A Bug's Life show. I drew the main character, a spider, a villain, and a bird on the stage with the Tree of Life around It. The stage is in the Tree of Life, so that's why I drawed it. Parts of it are funny. Well, most of it was funny. There was a part that scared my Grandpa! So that was funny, too. And yeah, I liked it."
