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!

Disney's Animals, Science and Environment

Ever feel like you’re being watched at the office? Animal Keepers at Disney’s Animal Kingdom provide dedicated care to all of the park’s residents…even the smallest winged ones. Being able to identify and keep track of everyone in the flock is an essential part of the job – but the relationships and trust built with the animals is truly the best benefit. #DisneyCastLife #CaringforDisneyAnimals

The Kingdom Insider

Oct. 1 1971, The Magic Kingdom opens with 23 rides and its center piece, Cinderella Castle.

The Magic Kingdom will always be a tribute to the life and work of Walter Elias Disney. I truly believe that Walt would be so proud of his "Florida Project," and when I think of him, I always envision him in that video where he's walking the land after purchasing it and you can just see his imagination and vision at work. It will continue to be a place where families and people of all ages can come together and live their happily ever after.

[06/14/19]   Reason #3: "I don't know why people don't use a travel agent because it saves time!" This one didn't come from my clients because they don't realize they're saving time. Just recently, I needed to call Disney to make a very simple change to a reservation (a client's name needed changed to a different spelling). What typically is a 2 minute phone call ended up being over an hour as there were other issues due to Disney's operating systems. Had my client needed to do this, she would have 1. either not called bc she didn't realize this would be a problem (which would have caused more problems when she would try to make fast passes); or 2. made the call and lost an hour of her day and some of her sanity. LOL These are the things travel agents do every day and it's okay!! We are here to make those calls to make our clients trip magical, easy and (hopefully) less stressful.

Ugh!! This is frustrating!!

[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.

[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!!
