While the majority of the World Class Vacations office is preparing for their 2018 events, the WCV Sales team has their sights set on the future – for 2019 that is! For this Staff Spotlight Feature, we sat down with our Sales team – Terry, Amanda, and Danielle – who are a key element in the World Class Vacations operation. They work hard each and every day to spread the word about World Class Vacations and the events that are offered. Read below to find out about their day-today and the busy selling season at World Class Vacations!
“Do you hear what I hear?” Dance The World is expanding into the winter months with the launch of our newest event, the Dance The World: Holiday Season Edition premiering next December 2018 at the Walt Disney World Resort! Here at World Class Vacations, we take feedback from our guests seriously. We pride ourselves in listening to our guests who asked for a dance event in the Walt Disney World Resort around the holidays. Well, you asked, we listened!
In the summer of 2017, World Class Vacations launched a brand-new dance event at Walt Disney World known as the World Dance Competition! This event is a dance competition like no other. Dancers have the opportunity to perform with their studio in a dance competition and then get to be a part of a parade through a Disney park! Our judges in 2017 included Witney Carson from Dancing with the Stars, Geo Hubela, a well-known hip hop dancer and choreographer, and David Houde, a Disney Talent and Entertainment Manager. Lindsay Arnold, a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars, will be joining the team for 2018! Geo Hubela and David Houde will be returning to adjudicate the competition as well.
The Cook Around The World staff is proud to present our 2018 Celebrity Chef and lead judge for 2018 – Chef Aarón Sánchez! Chef Sánchez is an award-winning chef, TV personality, cookbook author, and philanthropist. He is the chef and owner of Mexican restaurant Johnny Sanchez, with locations in New Orleans and Baltimore, and a judge on FOX’s hit culinary competition series, MASTERCHEF.
We are proud to announce that professional dancer, Lindsay Arnold, will be our Celebrity for Dance The World and the World Dance Competition in 2018! We are so excited to have Lindsay join our team this upcoming summer. (Read below to learn more about Lindsay and her journey becoming a celebrity performer!)
With the summer season ending quickly, 2018 is not too far away! It is never too early to start thinking about planning your future school or group trips. Here at World Class Vacations, we have been hard at work coordinating ALL NEW events along with exciting changes to our current events! Read below to learn more about what’s happening with our dance programs in 2018!

Attention all Dance The World performers and directors! If you are traveling to Dance The World during Celebrity Week (June 28-July 2, 2017), we want to hear from you! Witney Carson, our Celebrity performer for Dance The World 2017, will be answering YOUR questions at the Gala on June 30 and July 1, 2017! Witney has appeared on So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars and was featured on Disneyland’s 60th anniversary special on ABC. This is your opportunity to ask Witney about her journey as a professional dancer and choreographer!
The World Dance Competition is happy to have dancer/choreographer Geo Hubela as part of our team for 2017! The World Dance Competition, which will take place at the Walt Disney World Resort from June 26-29, 2017, is a new kind of competition that will allow dancers to perform during their scheduled time then they can go enjoy the parks! Geo Hubela will be adjudicating the competition alongside Witney Carson from Dancing with the Stars and David Houde, who works in entertainment at Walt Disney World!
