For more than 25 years, our villa specialists and concierges have been customizing dream vacations for clients, similar to how Disney creates dream experiences, so this was a natural fit.

Villas of Distinction®, the world’s premier villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings, helped the cast and crew of Aladdin, Disney’s Tony Award®-winning hit musical, welcome its one millionth guest with a complimentary villa stay. The surprise took place at the New Amsterdam Theatre on July 23, 2015. Aladdin has been performing for guests on Broadway since February 26, 2014.

Stephanie Lubin, a medical student from Melville, Long Island, was surprised with two round trip Delta One™ tickets on Delta Air Lines between the US and Europe and Villas of Distinction gave away a complimentary three-night stay for up to 10 guests in a villa in Tuscany, Italy at the Casale I Bianchi - Toscana Resort Castelfalfi, “the elegance of simplicity, the comfort of luxury.”

“For more than 25 years, our villa specialists and concierges have been customizing dream vacations for clients, similar to how Disney creates dream experiences, so this was a natural fit,” said Steve Lassman, vice president and general manager for Villas of Distinction. “It was exciting to be a part of the fanfare around Aladdin’s one millionth guest and present the winner with a Tuscan villa stay. Her reaction was priceless.”

Casale I Bianchi is located just an hour drive west of Florence, sleeps 10 and offers manicured gardens with breathtaking views of the Tuscan landscape. It also features a private swimming pool with furnished sundeck, a covered patio perfect for dining al fresco and daily housekeeping service.

Stephanie’s guest for the evening, high school sweetheart Kevin Sparaco, had suggested the two try the daily lottery for day-of Aladdin Broadway tickets. Stephanie won the couple a pair of tickets at the lotto, and as their tickets were scanned upon entering the theatre, ushers discovered that Stephanie was the show’s one millionth guest.
