I am excited to help you book and plan a Disney destination vacation full of magical memories at NO extra cost.

“We can’t afford to go to Disney!” At the time I spoke this sentence, my husband, Brian, and I had been married 6 years and we had 2 very young sons. I had grown up a fan of Disney movies and cartoons but I had never been to Disney World. Brian was trying to convince me we should take our family there but I didn’t want to give up several years of vacations to take ONE Disney trip, as I had heard people had to do. After a bit of research (and more convincing), we took our first Disney World trip in 2005….and I was hooked. Over the next 10 years, we made 7 more Disney World visits. Yes, we COULD afford it, even with a third son! My love for Disney World has since grown into a career. I strive to use my Disney knowledge, experiences, research and organizational skills to give my clients the most memorable and magical trips I possibly can within the restrictions of their budgets. Whether you need to watch every cent you spend or if you are able to splurge, I am happy to help you plan the trip that best suits your family’s interests, activity levels and ages. Disney World IS affordable and enjoyable for everyone! Please contact me and we’ll begin planning your magical adventure today at absolutely no extra cost to you!

Mission: Assisting individuals and families to book and plan their magical Disney destination vacations

[06/05/19]   JUNE 18!!! For those who have been patiently waiting to book their 2020 Disney World package, that's the magical day! Get in touch with me and we'll get the details ironed out: [email protected].

Walt Disney World

Disney PhotoPass® Service is the picture-perfect way to capture your vacation memories at more than 100 Walt Disney World Resort® locations.

[05/30/19]   Reason #2: "I don't know why people don't use a travel agent because you make things so easy."

I love when my clients say this to me. This is one of my goals. I want to make their trip planning easy and hassle free. I will do as much or as little as my clients desire. When I am making all their reservations and plans, my clients still have decisions to make (like their restaurants and fast pass attractions) but they don't have to learn how to navigate the reservation system, choose dates, times or anything else. I will do it all if they want me to do so. If you have an agent that isn't making things easy, then it's time to find a new agent. 😊

[05/25/19]   Good afternoon Disney fans! I have had a few conversations recently with clients who say, "I don't know WHY more people don't use an agent because...." . I thought I would share some of THEIR insight over the next few weeks. (This is also an attempt for me to post a bit more since that is an area that needs improvement. 😁) So, here we go:

Reason #1: "I don't know WHY more people don't use an agent because it really doesn't cost anything!!!"

I know it sounds impossible but it really does not cost extra to take advantage of my services. I have clients who return from their trips wanting to pay me personally. NO!! That does not happen!!! Why? Disney builds agent fees into their pricing structure. All guests, whether they use an agent or not, will pay for one. So my quotes should be exactly the same as you would get from Disney AND you don't need to pay me...EVER....if I am your booking agent.

It's a snowy day here in south-central Pennsylvania and, as usual, I'm Disney dreaming. My family was there in September and I thought I would share a couple pictures of some yummies we had on the first day. Enjoy looking at my "sweet dreams".

I'm sad that Animal Kingdom's guests today couldn't go on the safari, but what a wonderful reason to close an attraction!!

We’re thrilled to welcome the newest member of the Animal Kingdom Family! Mom, Mara, gave birth to a Masai giraffe calf today around 2 p.m. on the Kilimanjaro Safari Savanna. Mom and calf are bonding well and we hope to share more details soon!

Good afternoon Disney lovers, Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that 2019 Disney World packages are being released on Tuesday!! YAY!! Please contact me immediately if you are interested in a 2019 trip. [email protected]

[05/08/18]   Many people ask what other vacation destinations I book besides Disney Travel Co destinations. I choose NOT to do the Rest of the World because Disney is my passion! However...since many of my clients like to visit Universal, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove while they are in Orlando, I have decided to spread my wings a bit. I have been doing Universal for a couple years and now, I am booking Discovery Cove and SeaWorld!!! I'm trying to keep life simple for my clients by providing "one stop shopping". If you're interested in any of these other destinations, please don't hesitate to contact me!! Happy Traveling!!

Walt Disney World

The mosaics in Cinderella's castle are stunning!!!

Walt Disney Imagineer Dorthea Redmond used her creative magic and over a million pieces of Italian glass to create the five mosaics at Cinderella Castle. Crafted over 22 months, these mosaics tell Cinderella’s story—from her humble beginnings to her happily ever after. #PowerofMagic.

I'm quite upset with Disney for this move. There is no reason for this and it takes some magic away from my clients' magical vacations. The good news is, though, if you have already booked your vacation this doesn't apply to you!!
