At DSD we make selling tickets EASY & FUN!

Dosomethingdifferent.com (DSD) sells a mind-boggling range of experiences in hundreds of holiday destinations worldwide. Overnight desert adventures in Dubai, diving the Great Barrier Reef, spotting grizzly bears in the Rockies, shark cage diving in South Africa, Astronaut Training in Florida, afternoon teas at glitzy hotels and dinner shows at some of the world’s most famous venues.

The Team at DSD though, love Orlando theme parks! Vibrant and infectious, holidaymakers really can do-something-different every day. From Despicable Me to Spiderman, Mickey Mouse and Shamu; theme parks offer memorable holiday experiences for all ages.

Pre-purchasing tickets with DSD guarantees that customers will get the most out of their holiday – they won’t need to worry about getting ripped off in resort, or missing out because the experience was fully booked. They will have the best possible time whether on a family holiday in Orlando, a long weekend in New York, a stag-do in Vegas or a backpacking trip through Asia!

At DSD, we work solely with independent travel agents and with our small but dedicated team, our goal is to make selling tickets EASY and FUN by offering the following terms unique to DSD:

  • We don’t require deposits
  • We won’t charge you amendment fees
  • We won’t charge you cancellation fees – few exceptions apply
  • We issue turnstile ready tickets for all the major theme parks
  • We act as principal giving you and your customers complete peace of mind
  • We create fun and rewarding incentives all the time!
  • And we make a great cuppa tea!
We know because we go!

Team DSD have all been to Orlando many times (a perk of the job) and know the parks like the back of their hand but we’ve seen much more and beyond so call us anytime for advice and tips!
