Growing up, I was the definition of a Disney kid. All of the books my mom would read to me were Disney Little Golden books, my favorite movies came out of my family’s large collection of Disney clamshell VHS tapes, my stuffed animals were all of my favorite animal characters like Lucky from 101 Dalmatians or Simba from The Lion King and my family’s yearly vacation was to the Disneyland Resort. After high school, I followed this love and passion for Disney into a 6 year journey as a Cast Member. I spent time working at both the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California. Being able to connect with guests from all different walks of life and areas of the world was incredible. Helping them create memories that would last a lifetime? That was simply…magical!
I will carry over this same passion, dedication, and attention to detail over to planning your family’s dream vacation. Nothing will slip through the cracks as I build and construct an itinerary custom to your family’s needs and desires. You’ll be able to meet your favorite characters, ride your favorite rides and enjoy all the unique and unforgettable experiences that only Disney can offer. I will even take care of the myriad of reservations that need to be made in advance such as dining and FastPass selection! I am confident that my knowledge and experience make me best suited to helping you get the most out of your Disney vacation. On land, or on sea.
I may specialize in Disney vacations, but don’t be afraid to ask me about Universal Studios! I am more than happy to add Universal Studios trips to any Disney vacation, or plan an experience all on its own. So, let me make your travel dreams a reality!

Groups

 

Group pricing is determined by the size of the group and the type of planning involved.  In many cases, if the group plans to participate in the same resorts, activities and dining, there will be a similar fee as listed above paid ONCE per group.  In other cases, a large group with many different preferences that needs individualized planning within the group requires a larger workload and a custom price will be discussed. Your consultation is FREE as always.

 

Service fees are above and beyond travel expenses.  The fees listed are for professional planning beyond booking hotel/air/car/cruise reservations.  Service fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
