CAA Selects Disney as Preferred Travel Partner

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2008) - The votes are in and the winner is Disney, at least according to CAA travel agents who were asked to vote for CAA's 2008 preferred partner of the year.

After reviewing hundreds of entries, CAA Travel agents gave the nod to Disney Destinations based on the organization's overall performance, product, service, sales, and marketing efforts.

"This award is more than just the fireworks, the castle, and Disney magic," says Cathy McManaman, CAA's manager of national travel services. "This award is for Disney's Canadian cast, who worked hard to provide our members with exceptional service and value."

The prestigious CAA preferred travel partner award was presented to Disney at the ninth annual CAA travel managers' conference held in Nashville, Tennessee in early November.

"This is an incredible honour; the Disney and CAA partnership is truly unique and we are thrilled with this award," says Hayden Yates, travel industry marketing and sales director for Disney Destinations in Canada. "Over the past few years, Disney and CAA have brought the magic of Disney to thousands of CAA members and this award is a wonderful recognition of everyone's commitment and dedication to this partnership."

Under the CAA-Disney partnership, CAA members have access to exclusive Disney AAA Vacation packages and benefits. Further details about these packages can be provided by local CAA travel agents.
