For the second year in a row, Disney has been selected by CAA travel agents as the preferred travel partner of the year.

The award - which recognizes a travel partner's products, services, sales, marketing efforts, and overall performance - is given to a partner based on the overall number of votes garnered by travel agents at all of CAA's member clubs.

"The fact that Disney won this award twice in two years speaks volumes to Disney's Canadian staff, who work tirelessly to provide our members with exceptional travel deals." says Cathy McManaman, CAA's manager of national travel services.

The award was presented to Disney at the 10th annual CAA Preferred Partner dinner event held in Banff, Alberta.

"Everyone at Disney Parks is extremely proud of the partnership we have created with CAA Travel," says Hayden Yates, travel industry marketing and sales director for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. "Over the years, we have worked closely together to bring the magic of a Disney vacation to CAA members across Canada, and for Disney Parks to be recognized with this prestigious award is truly a great honour."

Under the CAA-Disney partnership, CAA members have access to exclusive Disney AAA Vacation packages and benefits.

"Our partnership with Disney allows us to offer member-exclusive offers on food, merchandise, entertainment, parking, and room rates at Disney Resorts," says McManaman. "A CAA membership is your gateway to making your Disney Resort vacation even more special."

Further details about CAA's Disney packages can be provided by local CAA travel agents.
