Great site. Out of interest has anybody used Crown Currency Exchange? They seem to have the best rate for USD and if you order in advance you can get an even better rate assuming that there are no major shifts in the currency markets. Does anybody know if they offer a reliable service?

yep! Reliable so far although I'm a BIT more unsure about trusting any company to hold my money over a period of time now than I was :/ but yep, they're reliable

Thanks Keith, very valid point! Even on buy now they have a good rate so it's good to hear they are reliable. Looks like we could have a few more dollars for WDW by using them :thumbsup:
