I thought Donald stole my heart when he kissed my cheek at the young age of five. But I was wrong. I fell head over heels for my favorite duck when he held my son twenty-five years later, and I knew Disney would always be a part of our lives.
I have been a travel agent since April 2015 and a travel agency owner since 2020 with my amazing husband, Dan. We have two awesome boys who love to go along on all of our crazy adventures! Our family’s love of travel started with Disney, but it didn’t stop there! We try to go as often as we can and love Universal, cruising, international travel, and exploring the United States in addition to all Disney destinations.
Now the moment we finish one trip, I am already planning our next. I love to share all of my tips and suggestions with anyone who wants to listen! It is my honor and joy to help other families experience the magic and wonder of travel. Let’s start planning!
Hi there! So, obviously we are huge Disney and Universal fans. We travel to these destinations with our two boys as often as possible and post videos and trip reports on our YouTube channel (Addicted to the Mouse YouTube) and Addicted to the Mouse, our longtime podcast (AttM Podcast). Check them out if you have a minute to learn a little more about us and how we travel.
All of that said, everyone on this page is a huge fan of the destinations we specialize in. All of the Fantastical Vacations Travel Advisors are amazing and will take such great care of you and your family throughout planning your next vacation. We understand that these trips are special and don’t come around all the time. We also appreciate the opportunity to make this a truly magical holiday and the trust you place in us to do that.
Leslie and I started Fantastical Vacations to build relationships and grow an agency that is 100% invested in our clients and their experiences. We are not transactional in nature. We are not interested in simply booking a trip and moving on to the next one. Any FV Travel Advisor you choose will be there with you from the first day of finding the best package for your situation through the entirety of your vacation and every step in between. We pride ourselves in developing lasting relationships with our clients and are grateful when they come back time and time again to trust us with future bookings.
Take a look around and find the advisor that you feel like you connect with the most and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Your time is valuable and we respect that.
Thank you again for considering Fantastical Vacations as your travel agency. We look forward to working with you.
Hey there! My name is Ashley Hizer, and I would be honored to plan every detail of the magic for you! Besides working as a Concierge Travel Advisor, I am a wife and mom of two littles, so I know that planning a memorable family vacation requires dedicated time, energy, and strategy.
I’ve traveled everywhere from the villages of Malawi to the streets of Munich to the beaches of Hawaii, but honestly, there’s just nothing like Disney. Growing up in Southern California during the 80s/90s at the height of many Disney classics, I frequented Disneyland for a constant fill of all things mouse, and then instantly fell in love with Walt Disney World during our first family trip when I was in elementary school. Since then, my own family of four has relocated to the South and made Walt Disney World our staple retreat. Our beloved Disney excursions have become an integral part of our family and regular source of joy, and I absolutely adore helping other families say the same, no matter the budget or taste.
Orchestrating vacations has always been just as exciting as the destination itself for me, so the details, big and small, are right up my alley. While navigating trips with kids in various stages (and some without them too), I’ve picked up tips and tricks along the way, which I impart to every client. I love experiencing each step of the process alongside my clients, and my goal is that each person has an enjoyable, stress-free experience, creating magical memories for a lifetime. I cannot wait to get started with you and your loved ones!
Hello! My name is Beth, and vacationing is my absolute favorite thing to do! As a huge Disney fan, my family and I decided to take the plunge and follow our dreams in 2022 and move to the Orlando area. Now, we are in the parks weekly and enjoy watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks from our backyard.
We are a family of four – David is my husband and Maddie and Will are our teenagers who share our love for traveling. My love for travel extends past Disney. All-Inclusive Resorts and Cruises are at the top of the list – I love the combination of relaxation and fun!
Planning a vacation is one of the best parts of travel for me, but I quickly learned not everyone shares that passion for planning. That’s why I love being a Travel Advisor. I get to lend my knowledge and experience to provide you with a concierge service without costing you any extra money.
I hope my experiences can help you plan the perfect vacation for YOU! It’s your trip…I’d love to be in your corner to make it exactly what YOU want it to be – whether it’s Disney, Universal, Cruises or All-Inclusives! Remember what Walt Disney said, “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.”
I have always loved Disney World, and was fortunate enough to experience it often while visiting my grandmother in Florida as a child. I’ve also had the opportunity to enjoy it many times as an adult, both with my family and as a kid-free experience with my husband – planning Disney vacations is truly one of my favorite things which is why I was so thrilled to join Fantastical Vacations in 2020! I also co-host a podcast called Simplifying The Magic where we share tips and tricks to simplify your next vacation.
My husband Jon and I have two beautiful children, Gavin & Timothy. We all absolutely love Disney, and look forward to visiting together for many years to come!
I specialize in Disney, Universal, major cruise lines, and some All-Inclusive resorts.
My Current Travel Certifications:
- College of Disney Knowledge Graduate

- Virgin Voyages – Gold Tier

I cannot recall a time when I haven’t been head-over-heels in love with Disney. Growing up with a Disney-loving dad during the Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, I was raised on a steady diet of now-classic Disney and Pixar films. The only vacation destination my family traveled to during my childhood was Walt Disney World, starting with a trip to celebrate my 6th birthday. I’ve gone on to mark just about every milestone with Disney, from multiple birthdays and graduations, to my honeymoon and babymoon while awaiting the birth of my daughter. This was the foundation that ultimately led me to become a travel advisor specializing in Disney Destinations in 2018. Since then, it’s been a joy to help dozens of families of all sizes and budgets plan their dream vacations, completely stress free. I truly love being able to give my clients the peace of mind that all they have to worry about is making magical memories that last a lifetime. I’ll handle the rest.
While Disney is my passion, I can also help you travel to Universal (I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, and a Hufflepuff, for those who are curious!), cruise on most major cruise lines, and plan getaways to Sandals & Beaches resorts.
I’m so excited to help you make magic on your next Fantastical Vacation!
I love the magic of a vacation! There is nothing better than the opportunity for family and friends to escape their day to day and experience something new together. It is the best way to make memories with the people we love.
My husband and I, with our three boys, travel every chance we get. Being midwesterners, our favorite destinations include warm temperatures and sunny skies! We LOVE Disney and have also made memories at various Carribean All-Inclusive Resorts.
I have traveled pregnant, with little kids and with grandparents, becoming well adversed to the challenges that brings. I pride myself in being able to customize an experience for every type of traveler and every type of budget.
Planning a trip can be an intimidating task. The research and details that overwhelms most is what I like best! Your vacation is my vacation. Let me plan it for you so you can enjoy every minute.

What if you could wake up in the happiest place on Earth without having to plan anything? All you have to do is tell someone how to make your dreams come true!
My name is Staci and I am grateful to have experienced wonderful vacations with my family and friends throughout my life. I first experienced Walt Disney World and Universal Studios as a child but I never thought it would become a yearly visit. Since meeting my husband, we have vacationed to Orlando many times and 5 of them in the last 5 years with our own children.
With his family living in Texas and mine in Pennsylvania, it is a great place to vacation together as a family. From giving my little girls the gift of meeting their favorite princesses to seeing our parents smiling on each ride, these are memories that I continue to cherish each visit.
I understand the care and detail it takes to plan a personalized vacation. Whether you want a romantic weekend getaway or are looking to have your next family reunion, I look forward to hearing what will make your next vacation magical. Reach out for a free quote to plan your next ‘Fantastical Vacation’ and start turning your dreams into memories.
Hi! I am thrilled you stopped by to consider me as your Fantastical Vacations travel advisor. Thanks in advance for taking a read.
I am a proud Disney Dad of two amazing daughters and a very lucky husband to a globe-trotting wife. Our lives revolve around where are we going next for an adventure. As you may have heard, “Adventure is out there!”
Along with a lifetime of international travel, I have been visiting Walt Disney World regularly over the last 30 years. My first time going to Walt Disney was back in 1992 and have been there over a dozen times since. I was hooked by the first high-five from Goofy and a nose kiss from Minnie Mouse. Yup, fell in love right there on the spot. As an adult (and a certified Gryffindor), I began adding Univeral Orlando to our trips and have been visiting these parks for more than 12 years. So, to say the least, I love these amazing locations and have a lot to give as your travel advisor.
Along with my love for all things Disney and Universal Studios, I suffer from wanderlust and am a seasoned international traveler. Many of my international travel experiences mirror the Adventures by Disney offerings. If you are specifically interested in these offerings I would love to assist if you are considering one of these fantastic travel experiences.
No matter your or your family’s interests and needs, I will be here to assist you in planning your vacations and help create memories. If you are new to travel planning or a seasoned veteran, on a budget, looking to go all out, book land, or sea, I am here to help. With my travel experience and passion for planning vacations, you are in great hands.
I have a wealth of knowledge to share all the tips, tricks, and insights to help you have the best possible vacation and experiences possible.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to hear from you soon!
Hello there everyone!
My name is Alex and my favorite things about vacationing are the many MEMORIES and EXPERIENCES!
I have been in love with Disney for as long as I can remember. I remember my first trip with my family to WDW when I was in fifth grade and ever since then it has become a huge part of my life!!!
Creating new experiences and making memories became even more magical when I was able to do it through the eyes of my own kids.
Nothing is more special and magical than a family vacation! I would love to help you plan a vacation your family would never forget!
Let’s create some magic!
Hey y’all! My name is Alex and I live in Tennessee with my husband and our 2 cute dogs.
I never had the privilege of going to Disney as a kid but traveling was always a part of my family’s values. Some of my fondest memories as a kid are from the summers we took my grandparent’s RV to Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Since then traveling has continued to be a part of my adult life and is a major priority for my husband and I. So much so that we went on a journey of paying off over $100,000 in debt so we could be financially free (our story is on YouTube if you want to know more about that!) We were able to finally make the trip to Disney World and Universal in 2019 and that’s when things really began to change for me.
I knew I’d love it there, but I really didn’t realize how much. All of the characters and stories I grew up reading about and watching were coming to life in front of my eyes. I know everyone says it, but… it was magical.
Now as much as I love traveling and Disney… I also love to plan! My husband jokes that if a meteorite was about to hit the planet that I’d be the girl to go see because I’ve already thought out 10 different plans for this scenario!
Thankfully your vacation doesn’t include a meteorite, but a Disney or Universal trip does have a lot of different pieces to it and I’d love to help make it easier for you. The last thing you want is for your vacation to be stressful so let me take some of that burden for you. Whether it’s your first trip or your 20th, I’d love to be on your team to make this the best trip for you and your family.
The easiest way to reach out to me is via email or Instagram. Let’s make some magic!
Disney has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have been traveling to Disney and immersing myself in the magic for the last 30 years. Nothing can beat the feeling of walking down Main Street U.S.A. and catching the first glimpse of the castle. I love to travel anywhere I can, but Disney will forever have my heart. Our family has expanded to 3 generations of Disney lovers now that my son has been introduced to the magic of Disney.
I know all of the intricacies of planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming. Let me simplify everything and help plan a fantastical vacation for you! I can’t wait to help you experience the magic for yourself and create new memories!
Hi, I’m Amanda Artifon. My love of travel started as a kid and continued to grow during my time in the Air Force. Now it is a passion that I have passed along to my two kids. We love to visit new places and make incredible memories, whether it is exploring National Parks, learning about new cultures, immersing ourselves in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or, our favorite, experiencing the magic of the Disney Parks.
I will work closely with you to make your experience exactly what you are looking for. I have traveled with every age group, from 0-90 years old, and groups of all sizes. So whether you are looking for a solo trip, a romantic honeymoon, a family vacation or a large family reunion, I am here to help! I can take care of all of the details and make your vacation as stress free as possible!
Hey pals, I’m Amanda, a travel wedding photographer by day & a travel agent by night (ok, let’s get real, those hours vary). But one thing is for sure, I LOVE TRAVELING. I have been Disney obsessed since I was a small kid growing up in Florida & even now, living in Buffalo, NY, I’m cultivating that same obsession in my own children.
Planning a vacation can be overwhelming, especially if you are traveling with small children. Let me take the stress away and help you live your best vacation life. My years of experience traveling not only to Disney destinations, but also throughout the world, allow me to pass off knowledge to my clients.
Hi! My name is Amber, and I am so excited to help you plan the most magical vacation! I Love all things Disney, and I look forward to sharing my passion with you. I rediscovered Disney as an adult, and I love it more now than ever, maybe even more than my own child. I’m pretty sure my 12 year-old would agree!
One of my favorite things about Disney, is the planning! It is like unlocking an adventure and picking out my most favorite treasures. Everything about a Disney vacation is a magical memory: the delicious food, overall theming, one-of-a kind attractions, childhood characters, cast member interactions, even the smells! Well, maybe not allll the smells, but I’m pretty sure a leisurely stroll down Main Street, USA, will unlock some pretty amazing aromas.
Speaking of Main Street, USA, Magic Kingdom is one of my most favorite theme parks. It holds such nostalgia for me and my family, and seeing Cinderella Castle cannot be beat. So much magic in one place! It was the first park my daughter visited, and the memories this mama has are forever in my heart.
I am here to help you easily find your most fantastic memories by taking any planning stresses off your hands. I look forward to working with you and your family to unlock your own magical adventure. Have a practically perfect day!
Whether I’m serenading my husband with “Happily Ever After” or dressing my twin baby boys up as Buzz and Woody, Disney fills my home and life. If Disney would allow dogs, I would have my French Bulldog, Tupac, right there with us along for the rides and snacks. Married in 2018, my husband and his family are as Disney-obsessed as I am, which has made for some amazing group trips to both Disneyland and Disney World. Whether it’s a solo, couples or family trip, I’ve got experience with newborns to grandparents, so whoever is going, I’ve got you covered.
When not physically at a Disney park, I love putting in miles on my Peloton or sipping on some bubbles and simply daydreaming of my next magical move. Planning our next trip is almost as exciting as walking down Main Street, USA…almost. But there really is a kind of thrill snagging those coveted dining reservations to Be Our Guest (my personal favorite) or Lamplight Lounge.
I am excited to plan your next Disney or Universal vacation (or both!). I will perfectly cater the experience to your family’s needs, tastes and budget. The only question is, are you ready to begin?
Growing up in Georgia, we are just a car ride away from the most MAGICAL PLACE ON EARTH! I was eight years old when I first went to Disney World. I still remember how exciting it was to see the hippo come out of the water on the Jungle Cruise ride and how I wished I could live in the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. (Highly underrated in my opinion) I knew as an adult that I wanted our children to share that same love and excitement that I got to experience growing up. I started researching tips and tricks to save money and still have an amazing Disney experience on a budget for our family of five. We made lots of mistakes in the beginning but I learned how to not make those mistakes again and how to get the most out of our budget. Our babies have grown into young adults and we still love going to Disney World.
We also love Universal Orlando and if you are a Harry Potter fan like we are, this is the place for you! Universal has something for everyone, even muggles. If you want more thrilling rides, Universal is a great choice.
If theme parks aren’t for you, consider taking a cruise for a more relaxing experience. After our first cruise, I was hooked! Taking a cruise opened up a world of travel possibilities I never thought I would get to experience. It is everything you need all in one place and the possibilities are endless.
I would love to help you plan your next FANTASTIC ADVENTURE so you can relax and focus on making magical memories!
Hey y’all! My name is Andrew and I am here to be your trusted Travel Advisor. I began helping families plan magical vacations in January of 2019 and the rest is history. What started out as a love for Disney has grown into so much more.
I took my first trip to Disney World in 2015 with my wife and our siblings. It was an instantaneous obsession and we were bit by the “Disney bug” hard! Since that time, we have traveled to multiple Disney destinations (Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruises, Disneyland Paris, and Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii) over 20 times!
While my love for Disney is the reason I started this profession, my expertise goes beyond that! I specialize in all-inclusive travel (more specifically Sandals and Beaches Resorts and Excellence Resorts), Universal Orlando and Universal Hollywood, national/international group travel, and some major cruise lines, including Virgin Voyages, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean. Along with the destinations I am an expert in, I also specialize in traveling with kiddos, plus-size travel, and “foodie” travel!
Besides being a Travel Advisor, my days are spent with my family. I have a beautiful wife and two wonderful kids. My kids love traveling just as much as their parents and could be your personal map to Disney World! My family has two vacation mottos we live by: “Take the trip. Make the memories.” and “Make memories now. Make money later.”
I cannot wait to help you and your family create magical memories with a Fantastical Vacation!
Hi, I’m Caroline!
Disney or Cruise? That is always the debate for me when dreaming up my next vacation! Travel has been my passion from a young age, and my family traveled to Disney or a cruise on every school break growing up. My honeymoon included a pit stop in Walt Disney World to grab our bride and groom Ears, followed by an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean (see, you CAN have it all!). Now that I have a family of my own I endeavor to share those same special experiences with my kids. The most precious memories in life are often made when you step outside of the ordinary with loved ones! While the places and vacations may change, the one thing that stays the same is how it makes you feel.
My goal is to help you discover those extraordinary moments that will turn into lifelong memories. I’ve traveled the world from Alaska to Africa, and I understand and respect all travelers’ paths. Whether it be once-in-a-lifetime luxury or a budget friendly getaway, let me help you plan your dream vacation. I specialize in travel with kids, getaways for couples, friends trips, and family reunions.
From my own experience planning my family vacations, I know that a little extra planning can go a long way. I have three kids, one with special needs, so I recognize the guesswork that can go into planning a vacation. I will arrange all the details and logistics to make it as easy as can be. My hope is to elevate your vacation from good to “Fantastical”!
Reach out today, and let me help you plan your next memory!
Hello! My name is Cassie and it would be my privilege to help you experience your dream vacation! Alongside being a travel advisor, I’m also a wife, a mom of two girls, and a lover of all things Disney and Harry Potter!!
I love to visit the parks whenever I can. Walt Disney World holds a special place in my heart. Once I’ve returned from a trip, I quickly begin planning my next one. I’ve been to Disney as a kid, with my college cheer team, with a group of couples, while pregnant, with infants and toddlers, with large groups, with my brother who has special needs, and as a girls trip.
Whenever a person tells me they’re going to Disney, I have this crazy need to share any advice I can! It’s easy to see how overwhelming a Disney trip can be and I would hate for someone to have a poor experience because they didn’t have anyone to guide them. I would love to help plan your next trip to Walt Disney World or Universal! I am a planner throughout all aspects of my life. I truly enjoy organizing trips to the parks because it makes me feel connected, even when I’m far away. I can take all of the planning aspects off of your shoulders so you can just show up, enjoy, and make lasting memories! Of course, I will also share my tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way. Let’s make your trip truly fantastical!
Hi, my name is Cathy and I recently became a travel advisor with Fantastical Vacations. My husband, twin teenage daughters, and I live in Oklahoma where I am a cheerleading coach and cheer mom! My husband Travis and I started our lives together with a honeymoon to Hawaii almost 20 years ago. Our love of travel really started with that amazing honeymoon. When our daughters were 3 years old, we went on our first vacation to Walt Disney World, and we have been back 13 times since! Over the years we have taken 3 different Disney Cruises and made a return trip to Hawaii with a stay at Disney’s Aulani Resort. Our love for all things Disney carries to our pets with our Jack Russell Terrier named Tinker Bell and our newest Beagle named Leia.
I have planned all our family vacations big and small with the most recent being a Christmas trip to Walt Disney World with a party of 18! I am the family planner and I absolutely love doing it! Over the years many of our friends have traveled with us or I have helped them with their planning.
My family has so many wonderful memories from all our vacations and every time we go, we experience something new and exciting. I would be honored to be a part of your family’s memory making experience!
Hi there! I guess I’m one of those “Disney Adults” you might’ve heard of? I’ve been lucky enough to have traveled all over the world, having visited 20 countries over four continents so far but to this day, my favorite destination of all has been Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! I just can’t get enough!
Disney World holds such a special place in my family’s hearts, having given us years of memories we could have otherwise only imagined. It’s the place we can always look to for bonding, healing, or just some good old-fashioned dreaming. We try to go at least once a year and each time is more magical – and fantastical! – than the last.
While I know and embrace the value of a vacation, I also recognize how hard we have to work so that we can take them. After being my friends’ and family’s budget friendly trip planner for many years, I was delighted for this opportunity to formally help others plan and enjoy their own Fantastical Vacations!
More about me:
– Favorite Disney movie: Beauty and the Beast
– Favorite Disney character: Winnie the Pooh
– Favorite Disney World resort: The Grand Floridian
– Personal travel bucket list: Each of the Adventures by Disney destinations!
– Where you can find me: Sipping some Joffrey’s iced coffee at the Muppets fountain in Hollywood Studios!
Hope to see you in the Parks!
I absolutely love the magic of Walt Disney World and the thrill of Universal Studios. There is no better feeling than walking down Main Street with that Mickey pretzel in hand while having your friends and family by your side, or using your new wand from Ollivanders to perform feats of magic throughout the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
My love of Disney started at a young age, and has only gotten stronger with time. My husband and I, often along with our close family and friends, travel to Disney World and Universal Studios every chance we get. Being from Maine, I especially enjoy heading to Orlando in those cold winter months. With everything Disney and Universal has to offer, I look forward to many years of magic to come.
Planning a vacation to Disney World or Universal Studios can be very overwhelming. It takes dedication, time and attention to every single little detail in order to make the absolute most out of your time. There are so many ways to enjoy your time in Orlando, whether you are a diehard go-getter who wants to maximize every second at the parks, or you are just looking for a leisurely vacation full of rest and relaxation. Finding the perfect balance is one of the things I enjoy the most when planning vacations, and oftentimes as we finish one trip I’m already planning the next.
I love to share my knowledge of Disney with anyone who wants to listen. I love being a part of planning vacations for others, and I would truly love the opportunity to help your family experience all the magic and wonder a Disney or Universal vacation can bring. I can’t wait to help you start planning your dream vacation!
Hiya!! I’m Chloe, and I am lucky enough to spend all day doing what I love – kindergarten teacher by day and travel agent by night! Traveling is a huge passion of mine; whether it’s visiting family in Greece and Cyprus, finding my way to a Disney park once a month, or exploring someplace new, you can always count me in for an adventure!
New Jersey girl born and raised, but a transplant to the Florida Keys in 2020, I am a typical “Disney Adult” and proud of it! When not traveling to a Disney park, you can find me baking, fishing, swimming, at the local library finding my latest read, or planning mock Disney vacations (which I’ve been doing for as long as I could use the computer)!
I know planning a vacation can be stressful, especially with children and groups filled with different ages and personalities. Knowing I can help a family plan their dream vacation puts a smile on my face and brings me so much joy!! Allow me to take the stress away and plan the most fantastical vacation for you and your loved ones.
I have been a lifelong lover of Disney World since my parents first took our family when I was 11 months old. Growing up, we continued to go back every other year and I have some of my favorite childhood memories in the parks. I have continued to grow this love into adulthood and have now been to Disney World about 30 times! I have visited Universal Studios Orlando, as well and have wonderful memories there.
One thing that might make me unique is that I went plant based in 2021 and have been to the parks several times since, so I can help anyone with special dietary needs navigate the restaurants on property.
Now, I am looking to help you make magical memories in these destinations!
Clint & Steph Hise

We have been traveling as a couple since before we got married and now love taking our family on vacations! Our first big family trip was to Disney World in Orlando and we were hooked!

Hello! My name is Courtney Artau and I can’t wait to help you create memories! Besides working as a concierge travel advisor, I am a school psychologist, wife, and mother of three young boys. I have planned many Disney vacations for my family and friends and understand the amount of time and energy that goes in to it.
I grew up watching and loving all of the Disney Classics. I took my first trip to Disney when I was 7 years old and have been hooked ever since. I loved the magic of Disney so much, that I participated in the Disney College Program in 2000 and worked at what was then called “MGM Studios.” I continued to travel to Disney throughout my 20’s and 30’s and then began bringing my own family to Disney. My boys are in love with that magical feeling you get when you set foot in a Disney park and are now hooked as well.
Planning trips can be overwhelming and exhausting, so why not use a travel advisor to do all the busy work for you?! I specialize in Disney, Universal, and cruise vacations. My services are completely free to you and my goal is to make the process as easy as possible for you. I can help plan and secure your resort, tickets, dining, transportation, strollers, scooters, and special events, just to name a few things.
I specialize in planning for those with special needs as I have family members who have utilized the accommodations provided by Disney. I am ready to pass along all the resources and recommendations I have, so let’s start planning!
Hi! I’m Dani and while I’m a 6th grade Earth Science teacher by day, I refer to myself as the chaos controller, lucky Mom of 5 (3 little ones and 2 bonus daughters), and travel enthusiast by night. The quote, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” has always resonated with me and has become a beacon of guidance for me in my journey toward becoming a Travel Advisor.
I have a background in and deep passion for all things related to travel. I studied hospitality in college, studied abroad in Australia, and grew up vacationing in Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico, and throughout the U.S.
My love for Disney began as a child, but really took hold in 2011 when I participated in the Disney College Program as a Vacation Planner. This was, without a doubt, one of of my favorite experiences I’ve ever done. It was through this program that my interest in and passion for Disney quickly grew.
As a young adult, I worked in the travel industry as a destination wedding specialist and worked closely with many all-inclusive resorts and had the incredible opportunities to travel to many of them.
Currently, I love my job teaching 6th grade Earth Science and love planning vacations even more! You can often find me researching various ways to escape my real world responsibilities to retreat to my “happy place” – WDW! When I can’t go there myself, I find true enjoyment living vicariously through friends and family while they make magical memories.
I am a part of a big happy blended family and have planned many years of multi-generational large group Disney and Universal trips. I have so much fun researching all of the options, educating myself on all the latest and greatest “must-dos,” and I find joy in all of it! I can’t wait to take some of the overwhelm and stress of planning off your plate to help your family find your happy place and plan your next magical getaway.
Hello Everyone! I’m Daniele from Nashville, TN.
I’m a mom of 2, wife, math teacher, and a lover of chocolate, puzzles, and of course all things Disney. I grew up with Disney movies, merch and birthday parties, and began my Disney travels at age 12. I visited multiple times as a child with my mom and sister, but really fell in love with Disney parks once I had children of my own. Now I get there as often as I can, and have fallen in love with runDisney races!
These past few years, I’ve become a Disney weekend warrior and planned numerous long weekend trips with my family of 4 so that we can have some Disney magic without breaking the bank. I’ve also been able to take some wonderful full week Disney trips with my large extended family. I’ve got a little girl obsessed with princesses and husband and son that are all about Marvel and Star Wars. So whether you have 2 days, or 2 weeks, a princess in training or jedi and superhero, I’d love to help you plan your magical adventure!
Hello, and welcome! I’m here to make your vacation planning experience easy so that you can focus on the fun and excitement of your upcoming adventure!
Originally from the Maryland/Virginia area, I now call the sunny state of Florida home with my sweet husband and our two amazing boys. We’re an easy drive from Port Canaveral, the incredible Orlando area theme parks and resorts, and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. Whenever we can, we take advantage of being so close to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, and the cruise ports, having sailed on all five of Disney’s magical cruise ships.
For me, designing a vacation is just as exciting as the destination itself. I love putting all the pieces together and watching a dream transform into a tailor-made vacation. I understand the value of your free time and recognize how time consuming it can be to research and plan the ideal vacation itinerary. I’d be honored if you would let me do the heavy lifting for you while giving you the control to dive into as much or as little of the details as you like.
Together, we can put my knowledge and expertise to work so that you can enjoy the vacation, adventure, or celebration you’ve been envisioning. I specialize in family and multigenerational vacations, couples getaways, and friends trips. In addition to the Disney and Universal Resorts, I can also help you create the ideal cruising adventure at sea, or tropical All-Inclusive escape. If this sounds like it would be of service to you, then let’s get started! The easiest way to reach me is via email.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, and I hope to talk with you soon!
My Disney obsession began when I was a little kid. Since then, I’ve done Disney World just about every way you can do it: multigenerational trips, romantic trips, family trips, and girls’ trips. I’ve hauled three strollers and a wheelchair through the parks and zipped around with only a backpack, managed split-stays at multiple hotels, weathered a hurricane on property, navigated Disney with folks with disabilities, enjoyed fancy dinners and totchos on-the-go, on-property, off-property, budget trips and splurge trips, every kind of season from surface of the sun July to chilly February. I love it every single time.
Even before I became an agent, I loved helping friends and family make the most of their Disney World vacations. The parks can be intimidating, so nowadays, my first recommendation is to always work with a travel agent who specializes in Disney. And hey, wouldn’t you know, that’s me!
I’m happy to help families of all shapes, sizes, and sensibilities get ready for a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
A few Disney facts about me:
- I played Esmerelda on the castle stage with Show Choir Camps of America’s Disney Spectacular
- I visited Hong Kong Disney during its preview days while I was overseas on tour with The Sound of Music
- My nickname growing up was Carrot, because I got too excited about going on Pirates of the Caribbean and called it “Carrots of the Pireabbean”
I would love to help take the stress off of you so you can make precious, life-long memories!
Walt Disney is often quoted as saying, “If you can dream it, you can do it,” and my job as an agent is to help your vacation dreams become reality!
Since first spreading my wings abroad in college I have discovered a love and passion for not only the details of travel planning but for the beauty of truly building an experience that captures the heart.
As a two-time graduate of the Disney Institute and well-traveled individual with familiarity of domestic Disney parks on the east and west coasts, I can speak to the ins-and-outs of how to build a memorable vacation that even the biggest skeptic (or smallest budget) will love!
Whether you’re looking to plan a first trip with kiddos or a solo-getaway, a family reunion or a celebratory blow-out following a big life event, I would treasure the opportunity to learn about what YOUR vacation dreams are and make it happen.
Let my obsession and hours invested in learning all the tips and tricks do the work for you!
Once upon a time, when I was a kid, we went to Walt Disney World and I remember how special that trip was to us. Vacation time was important for my family and Disney became that place we returned to again and again. What brought us back? It was the memories we took home. Disney brings you into that magical place and takes away the everyday routine and sprinkles some pixie dust.
I grew up a Disney kid, it was only natural my daughter did as well. We always feel the magic calling us back. There is nothing better than that first glimpse of Cinderella Castle, hearing the music on Main Street or seeing your first character of the trip. When I’m not visiting, I will talk Disney with anyone who will listen. I spend a lot of my time keeping up on what is happening in the parks and resorts and staying current on the news for Disney and Universal.
Planning a trip for our family is something I always looked forward to but I realized it wasn’t just being there in Disney that I loved so much. Helping friends or family plan their trips was just as exciting. I enjoy the details of planning a vacation, sharing that passion I have with others, and then hearing about the memories created from those trips when they return.
My dad always said you should do something with all that Disney knowledge. Now I have and would love to share it with you! I am a College of Disney Knowledge graduate and Universal Orlando Resort Specialist. I am excited to share my passion and help you sort out the best options for your trip, offer top notch customer service and create the itinerary that works for you. Believe in the magic and make the memories.
Hiya folks! I’m Donna Borchardt. I was born and raised in Southern California, so Disneyland is like my second home. I have been going to Disney my whole life with family and friends, on couples trips with my husband, and even solo trips when the mood strikes me. I celebrate almost every big occasion at Disney.
I love to plan trips to Disney for birthdays, anniversaries, or just for fantastical vacations. Disney has a special place in my heart and I love being a part of the magic. One of our favorite parts of Disney is the food because they have so many amazing options! There is always something new to try whether it is Festivals, Holidays or their many, many restaurants. We consider ourselves to be regular Disney Foodies.
I would love to help plan your next couples or family trip to the parks. I specialise in Disneyland and WDW, as well as Universal, which has so many fun things to do as well. Let me help make your next trip a breeze no matter which coast!
My name is Dorothy Anderson. I’m a wife and a mom to two Disney loving children living in New Jersey. Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me! I believe that a Disney vacation is more than just a vacation – it’s an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime.
I love all things Disney! From the new and classic movies to the theme parks, and cruise ships. I simply can’t get enough of the magic that Disney brings into our lives. In my spare time I’m either watching a Disney movie with my children, having a Disney dance party in our living room, listening to a Disney themed Podcast, or watching all my favorite Disney YouTube channels.
I’ve visited the Disney parks multiple times and each visit feels like the first time – the excitement never fades! It truly is my happy place! I love learning about the history of Disney and all the behind-the-scenes details that make the magic possible. Whenever I’m feeling down, I turn to Disney to lift my spirits and transport me to a world of wonder and imagination. Disney is more than just a hobby for me – it’s a way of life!
I understand that planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming, especially for first-time visitors. Well don’t worry because l love planning Disney vacations and I would love to help you plan yours! That’s why I’m here to guide you through the entire process, from selecting the best accommodations and dining to recommending the best attractions and activities for your family. I will also provide you with insider tips and tricks, such as what to pack, the best times to visit the parks and how to navigate the crowds.
In addition to Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Aulani, and Adventures by Disney, I also can help you plan an amazing vacation to Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.
As your travel agent I am committed to helping you create a personalized itinerary that reflects your interests and preferences, and ensures that you have the most enjoyable and stress-free vacation possible.

Hello! I currently live in Michigan, but my heart is divided in equal parts between Ohio, California, and Florida. Michigan is just for a season, and some day, we hope to call Florida home.
I love planning vacations! Anywhere and everywhere, I spend months researching planning for our family prior to every trip we go on. I want to put all the enjoyment I get out of it and expertise I’ve gained to help you with your vacation as well!
I have been married to my wonderfully supportive husband for 14 years, and we have two boys that are 14 & 10. My husband didn’t have many opportunities to travel much growing up, so he loves to be able to provide amazing vacations for our children now. I, however, got to go on many vacations growing up all over the country, often more than once a year, and even got to go to Denmark. I was so blessed to have those amazing experiences! My favorite destination, though, was always Disney.
I was not even 2 yet when I went on my first trip to Disneyland. We went every year while we lived in California, and every time it was just so magical. When we moved to Ohio, I still got to go to Disneyland when we visited family, but I also had my first experience with Disney World. I loved them both for so many reasons, I couldn’t even choose a favorite!
My whole family has always loved Disney, and my uncle has even done many imagineer projects for Disney and Universal over the years. Once I was finally able to take my husband to Disney World for his first time when our boys were 6 & 8, he was hooked right along with me. My boys call my love for Disney a problem, but my husband calls it my passion. As soon as one trip is over I’m busy planning the next one. We’ve gone several times since that first trip, and went to Universal as well. Every trip is just as magical as the last, and it never gets old.
Some people say Disney is just for kids. I would disagree! If that is your opinion, perhaps you just haven’t experienced it right, yet! We are foodies and dream of the wonderful meals and snacks we get at Disney that are one of a kind. We even taken trips there without the kids. It’s a whole different experience!
It would be my greatest joy to put my passion to work helping you plan your dream vacation tailored just for you and your family! Let me do all the work for you, so you can just sit back, enjoy, and make amazing memories!
Hi I’m Heather! I’m Married to My Best Friend, and we have two Beautiful Daughters. We didn’t grow up taking a lot of vacations. So when we got married and had kids, we definitely made up for that.
I had never been to Disney until my oldest daughter was 2 1/2 years old. I was always a fan of Disney, but I completely fell in love with Disney World seeing the Magic through her eyes. She’s now 14, and I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve been. I’ve gone on trips with Friends & Family, Girls trips, couples trips with my husband, and even a solo trip by myself. I loved Disney so much that I got a job at The Disney Store in 2014 and worked there until we closed in July 2021. My Favorite Character is Tinker Bell. As she says, Laughter is Timeless. Imagination has No Age. Dreams are Forever. I’ve learned that is so true. I’m so incredibly thankful that I’ve been able to make the memories of a lifetime with my family, and we will continue to make.
My Family has also grown a love for Universal. My childhood just screams this place. My Mom loved E.T., and Jurassic Park, I grew up watching Harry Potter, and my youngest loves using her interactive wand in both parks. I can’t tell you how many times we rode The Cat in The Hat ride in The Dr. Suess area on our 1st trip. Haha.
We also love to go on Cruises. We’ve enjoyed being able to see so many destinations on each cruise. So many wonderful things to do, and see. Our favorite so far has been The Halloween on the High Seas on The Disney Magic.
I love helping others with their vacations. I truly get Joy from seeing others having a great time. I would love to help make your next trip a Magical Experience!
All you need is Faith, Trust, and a little pixie dust. -Tinkbell
“Never lose sight of one thing, It all started with a mouse”… for me it started with a “Pink Castle Cake.” In 1996 for the 25th anniversary, my new dad took me as a young adult to Disney World. It was our first trip as a family. I was amazed and in awe of all that families could do TOGETHER!!!
Since then, I have become a huge fan of everything Disney, visiting as often as I can, and challenging myself to explore and try something new every time we visit. I have traveled as: a couple, a parent, an extended family, a girls trip, and in a group, customizing it for the needs of everyone on the trip. I take care of all the details so the trip is as stress free as possible. Recently, I traveled to Disney with my service dog and I am learning how to accommodate people with disabilities, so we can all easily enjoy the magic and beyond.
I have been fortunate in my adult years to travel to many places around the globe. I would welcome the opportunity to make your next dream a reality!!!!
I live in Southern California with my wonderful husband and three amazing kids. Growing up in California, Disneyland was one of our favorite family vacations. I have so many amazing memories of going to this happy place with my extended family and our friends throughout the years. Now, as an adult, it is so thrilling that I get to experience the magic of Disney through the eyes of my kids and we get to create memories together. My husband and I also enjoy visiting Universal Studios Hollywood and my children are always excited to walk through the world of Hogwarts and Butterbeer is always a must.
Besides visiting theme parks, I have also developed a love for cruising. My husband and I experienced our first cruise together in 2007. It was such an amazing experience, that we have tried to cruise as often as we are able to get away and on occasion, we even bring the kids! It was after these magical cruise experiences, that I realized how much I love planning the trips. I enjoy researching and learning everything there is to know in order to have an amazing time. My goal has always been to make sure we hit everything on our list and still leave room for some unexpected adventures.
Planning vacations takes a lot of time and resources and, as your travel advisor, I would love to help you plan the best vacation without all of the stress! Our services are 100% free of charge and my number one priority is to help you plan an amazing trip and make memories that will last a lifetime. So, whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a fun family trip, I look forward to making all of your dreams of a “Fantastical Vacation” come true!
Hi there! My name is Jaycie Rose and my love for Disney started at a very young age. My mom worked at our local Disney store in the mall (where I begged to have my birthday parties) and because of that, she decked out our basement in any Disney character cardboard cutouts she could get her hands on. My love for the Disney parks however, started in my adult years.
I went once as a child, but I don’t remember much of that trip. However, since Disney reopened after the closure for the pandemic, I’ve been fortunate enough to go at least twice a year, and I still have so much more to explore! Some of my travel goals for the upcoming years are a Disney Cruise, Disney’s Aulani Resort, and an Adventures by Disney trip.
I’m a hairstylist by trade, but honestly spend most of that time talking to people about their travel plans! I’d be honored to assist you in planning your next Fantastical Vacation!
I don’t know about you, but I need an escape right now! For me and my family, the best place to escape to is Walt Disney World. Even if we can’t be in the parks, we escape by dreaming and planning for future trips. That’s why I would love to help you plan your own escape. I specialize in planning for Walt Disney World but I am also knowledgeable about Universal Studios and I cannot wait until we can escape on cruise ships, again!
There are so many decisions to make, so many details to pay attention to, and so many factors that lead to a fantastical vacation. When you visit a place like Walt Disney World without having identified your travel goals, it makes the process even more stressful. As your travel agent, I not only book your trip and take care of the details, I plan with your unique travel goals in mind.
I take the time to get to know you and your travel group. As a psychologist, I know what questions to ask to identify the needs and personalities of each person and will make personalized recommendations based on the important characteristics of your group.
Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was just 4 years old. I remember telling my mom “I am going to work here one day!” At such a young age I knew there was magic there and I had to be a part of it. Fast forward 18 years when I made that dream a reality and it was every bit as magical as I knew it would be.
I moved back to Atlanta in 2006, but I have visited Disney multiple times each year. I took my husband on his first Disney trip in 2014 and now we take our 3 boys as often as we can. It is so fun to raise them to love a place that is special to me. I have a 7-year-old son and 3-year-old twin boys and love to plan trips with them, but I also don’t mind keeping them home so I can enjoy an adult’s only trip.
Now I am starting what might be the best job ever! I can help you plan your own magical vacation for you and your family. It would be such an honor to assist you and give you all the advice I have accumulated over the last 20 years from my own visits. My promise to you is to walk you through everything and take away any trip planning stress you may feel. Some might say I can be the “easy button” to make your trip planning dreams come true! Let’s get started!
Hey Pal, I am excited and honored to help you have The Most Magical Vacation on Earth. I am a former Walt Disney World Cast Member and I love sharing my insider tips and tricks with you! Now I am a local Disney Mom, and I have taken my young kids to the Disney Parks way over 100 times not to mention Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Universal Studios, soon to be Aulani, and various places throughout the US.
You can tell that we love to make memories together through travel because we want to build bonds that last. If that sounds like you and you want to build memories with the people that matter most, I am here to help! When I went to Disney World as a kid, I made the best memories with my family and to this day Disney brings me so much joy. I wanted to help others build those core memories, so I became a Disney Cast Member and it was the BEST part of the job. Now, I get to help you make magical memories before, during, and after your vacation.
I want to help you take the stress out of planning and optimize your vacation so you can focus on the memories.
Now who’s ready for an adventure!?
Hi Everyone! My most favorite thing, other than being at Disney, is dreaming up and planning my family’s next Disney trip. My husband and I took our two daughters (4 and 6 at the time) on their first Disney trip in 2017 and have never looked back!
It truly is the most magical place on Earth. My favorite part is soaking up the experiences and memories with my girls while they are still younger. I also truly look forward to trips as they get older and “Disney dates” with my husband.
I cannot wait to help you plan your Disney trip and help you create magical memories for years to come! We will talk through what is best for your budget and family to create the best experience just for you. Today is the day to start planning the magic!
Hey! I’m Justen! I’m a “girl dad“ from Dayton, OH.
When my oldest daughter turned three, my wife Esther and I bought her a Snow White dress for her birthday. I didn’t think too much of it – I just figured little girls like dress up! But when she put that dress on and started singing and twirling through the grass on that perfect summer day something snapped in me! I knew we were gonna be a Disney family, and that I had to figure out how to take my princesses to Disney World.
We do Disney with a preschooler and a toddler in the double stroller plus a baby in a baby carrier on our bodies, so I’ve got the real experience to help you plan a truly special trip even with your littlest loved ones!
Now, in my day job I’m a Worship Leader and Pastor at a wonderful church in Ohio, not a surgeon or an AI engineer. So, I’ve had to figure out how a young family can do Disney without selling off vital organs. I can guide you to the right trip without busting your piggy bank.
I’m an avid lover of travel (nine countries on three continents and counting)- but it’s not about the travel. It’s about the people we travel with—the laughter and the joy and the forever memories of being together—that’s what I want to help you create!
Hello! How can I help you plan a Fantastical Vacation?
Hailing from the Northeast, I am a graduate of the Disney Institute with expertise in large group travel and a love for multi-generational trips. As the proud Mom of three (now teen and up) kids, travel has always been a huge part of our life and planning experiences for tough audiences is a challenge I enjoy. Favorite destinations for us include Disney, cruising, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
Favorite ride? Tie between Haunted Mansion and Flight of Passage. Favorite snack? Dole Whip Float, please! Favorite character? Gotta be the Boss Mouse himself- Mickey.
Life is the downtime between vacations- Let’s make some memories!
Hello! As a native Floridian, Disney was our favorite family vacation destination and I fell in love with the parks very early on in life. I spent a semester at the University of Central Florida in Orlando working in the Magic Kingdom. It was there that my fascination with Disney grew and my appreciation of their unique ability to create a magical vacation experience developed even more.
After getting married, I moved to Chicago in 2012. My husband, Brandon, and I have three children that we love to take on road trip adventures. Our favorite places to go are Disney and Universal! We recently relocated to Charlotte and love our new area, especially being closer to the parks (and farther away from Chicago winters!)
I have always loved planning vacations and my family and friends have never hesitated to let me work my magic with their vacation planning! I have been the go-to person for all things Disney for as long as I can remember. My goal as a travel agent is to help families navigate their vacations so that they can focus on the gift of spending quality time with one another, rather than diminishing that gift with the time-consuming details that come with planning. We’ve all seen (or been!) those parents that look expended before lunch. Let me take the wheel of all of your vacation needs and steer you towards your next Fantastical Vacation!
Hi there! I’m Katie Matzenbacher, and it would be an absolute delight to help you plan your next vacation!
I am a puzzle solver at heart. In my day job as Creative Resource Manager, I piece together our capacity planning puzzle to make sure we have the right creative on the right job at the right time. Vacation planning is like that. It’s a giant puzzle with lots of various ways you can fit the pieces together. The final puzzle looks different on each trip because the pieces are different. We go at different times of year and with different people. We have different interests and styles of vacationing.
I spend the bulk of my free time either reading about what’s new at Disney and Universal or how to be a better points & miles travel hacker or researching cheap flights. But since there are things like our family budget and not enough PTO and school schedules and blah, blah, blah that hinder us from jumping on every flight deal and visiting Disney destinations around the globe, I’d love to share my knowledge and help you book (and have!) the most magical vacation!
Whether it’s a worry-free stay at an all-inclusive resort or cruise, a day of thrills and magic at Disney or Universal, or even an adventure around the world, I’d be honored to help put the pieces of your dream vacation together!
My name is Kayla, and as a person born in the 90s, I was RAISED by Disney! From the time I could talk, I would speak almost entirely in quotes from Disney movies, and as I grew older, my love for the Mouse grew with me.
I went to Disney World for the first time when I was 11, and since then, I have been more times than I can even count. One fun story that I love sharing from my park adventures was actually meeting my husband, Chris, in Epcot when we were both there for New Years! (If you want the full story, let me know!) In addition to being a lover of all things Disney, I am also a major Harry Potter nerd (I’m a Hufflepuff!), so Universal is like my home away from home.
My husband and I recently moved down to Florida in order to be closer to the parks, and I am actually now a Cast Member in Epcot! I hope to share all of my Disney and Universal experience with you as we begin planning your vacations. Whether it is a once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a fun couple’s getaway, I’d love to help make your vacation Fantastical!
Hi, everyone! My name is Kelsey and I am from Dayton, Ohio. My love for Disney started at a young age and has grown exponentially over the years. Walt Disney World holds a special place in my heart.
I have celebrated multiple milestones in The Most Magical Place on Earth. My husband and I travel to Disney World any chance we get and are counting down the days until we get to take our niece on her first Disney trip.
Not only do I love Disney, but I also love all the thrill rides at Universal Studios. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of the most immersive lands and nothing brings me more joy than watching my husband’s face light up as we explore the charm of Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade with a Butterbeer in hand.
Planning a vacation can be overwhelming. Let me help alleviate some of the stress by helping you plan your trip! Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime vacation or a quick weekend getaway, I can help maximize your time with your loved ones.
Hi, my name is Kemi! I’m a wife and mother and I love going on vacations! They’re such a good time to take a break from daily life to unwind and re-charge. I especially love going to Disney and Universal. I’ve taken many trips with big groups, girls trips, alone with my husband, pregnant and more recently with toddlers and grandparents. I understand the challenges that can arise and how to prepare. Since becoming a mom it’s been wonderful to see and experience it through my children’s eyes. It’s always an amazing time for our family as we eat our way through the parks, relax at the resorts, enjoy the sights and sounds on Main Street and stare in awe of the firework shows.
I also love planning vacations just as much as I love going! I find so much enjoyment in the preparations, the countdown and the anticipation of the next one. Worrying about tickets, dining reservations, fast-passes and transportation are all things I enjoy. Life can get busy and the thought of another thing to do can be too much. As your travel advisor, I can help take the stress away. I will use my years of experience going to the parks to help you navigate through the many overwhelming details. I have lots of tips and suggestions to help simplify and can especially help parents that are unsure how to navigate it all with little ones!
I would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family to help plan the vacation of your dreams! Together, we can plan vacations that will bring great joy and wonderful memories for years to come!
Hey there fellow travelers! My name is Krista. I live in Bar Harbor, Maine with my husband Shane and our chocolate lab, Lola. Our daughter Emily attends college at Embry Riddle on the Space Coast of Florida.
I have been a travel “nerd” since 1985: I was 12 years old and my parents took us on a summer vacation to Prince Edward Island, Canada. I planned the entire itinerary myself and we had a fantastic time — even though my parents didn’t exactly follow my itinerary. Ever since, I have loved planning vacations.
Once upon a time, I earned a degree in travel & tourism and participated in the Disney College Program. Fast forward to today and I have found myself as an empty-nester and am focusing my energy where my passion lies: Planning travel for those who love to vacation!
So many people I have met LOVE to travel but LOATHE the planning process. That’s where I come in. I offer complimentary concierge travel planning services from researching & booking through trip completion. My area of extra expertise is traveling successfully with gluten-intolerant dietary restrictions.
I would be thrilled to assist you with your travel needs; let’s plan that vacation, you deserve it!
I took my first of many trips to the Magic Kingdom when I was four months old, and I have been hooked ever since. One of the things I love about Disney is how inclusive and timeless it is: people of all ages and backgrounds can come together to have fun, relive favorite memories, and create new treasured moments. And as a chef and wine educator, I always love to “research” all the fantastic food and beverages in the parks!
As a former resident of both Southern California and Orlando, FL, I understand how involved and complicated planning a theme park vacation can be, particularly now. Let me take the stress out of planning for you. I love researching and organizing vacations, almost as much as traveling myself. My goal as a Concierge Travel Advisor is to help you make your vacation as seamless and unforgettable as possible. I can do the planning so you can focus on the fun!
I specialize in planning WDW, Disneyland, Universal, and Disney Cruise Line vacations for couples, adults, multi generational small groups, and solo/duo travelers of all ages. There are so many ways one can experience the magic. It is my job to translate your unique vision into a custom-made vacation of your dreams; be it a solo getaway, a honeymoon retreat, a mommy and me adventure, the ultimate friends’ trip, or a once-in-a-lifetime family celebration.
When I am not strolling down Main Street or out on an African Safari, you can find me in a sleepy New England town, wandering the rocky coastline and dreaming of Joffrey’s Cold Brew and Butterbeer. “Every adventure requires a first step.” Whether you are a seasoned theme park veteran or a first-timer just earning your mouse ears, I am here to be your “first step”. Feel free to contact me any time for a free, no-obligation quote. It would be an honor to assist in planning your next fantastical vacation!

A trip to Walt Disney World can and should be more than a vacation. It should be a collection of memories that become a part of the fabric of your family. An opportunity to feel the excitement, relaxation, and nostalgia of cutting edge thrill rides, leisurely afternoons by the pool, and classic attractions that seem like they jumped straight out of your childhood.
Walt Disney World has been my steadfast source of joy throughout all the seasons of my life, and I would love to help you find that same joy as we team up to plan your Disney vacation. From family trips as a child to a college friends vacation, a honeymoon, adults-only trips, trips while pregnant, vacations with my two young children, and large extended family trips, I have gathered a broad range of Disney travel experiences over many years, and I cannot wait to use that experience to make your trip truly unforgettable.
If you have any questions about planning a trip to a Disney destination, or to help determine if such a vacation is right for you and your family, I would love to be your resource for all things Disney travel. Adventure awaits. Let’s get there!
Hi, my name is Laura. I’m a Disney wife and mom. My husband and I have three amazing children and we love to travel, especially to Disney World and Universal. In 2014 we took our children to Disney World for the first time. That is when many would say the obsession began, but I call it a passion! I found myself searching and learning more about the wonderful world of Disney.
We have traveled to Disney World many, many times – at least twice a year. We have taken family trips, couples trips and solo trips. This past year I became an annual pass holder and signed up for my first RunDisney race! My Disney bucket list is to stay at every Disney resort at least once and I am halfway there!! We have attended the Halloween, Christmas, and after hour parties. We have traveled with young children and now with teenagers. Visiting water parks and experiencing all the extras there are to offer (golfing, boating, bicycles) are a must for us.
I have completed the College of Disney Knowledge and Universal and U training and it would be my pleasure to help you and your family plan a Fantastical Vacation and make your dreams come true! Let me help you take the stress out of planning your magical destination.
Hello! I am a native of Charleston, South Carolina! I am married to a wonderful, Disney loving husband and have created two Disney addicted children! Our favorite moments are when we can disconnect and visit the parks!
As a young kid, I recall trips to Disney and distinctly remember the magic and fantastical emotion the rides, fireworks and monorail created! As an adult, I’ve learned a new appreciation for all Walt Disney World does to create magical moments and a superior experience! My husband and I also love taking trips to Universal Studios. We love the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Dr. Seuss Land.
Our recent journeys have included infants and toddlers, along with a special adult only anniversary trip. That being said I understand the dedication, time and attention to detail it takes to plan a sensational vacation. It would be my greatest pleasure to assist with planning a dream vacation tailored specifically to your family’s desires!
Hello, my name is Leslie Jenkins! I’m a huge Disney junkie!!! I was raised on the classics such as Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids! to name a few.
When I’m not working my 8-5 career as an Executive Loan Assistant, I’m volunteering with the youth at our local church or whipping up some great dishes in the kitchen! But most of all, I’m constantly expanding my travel knowledge and planning the next Disney trip! I’m passionate about real people helping real people adventure.
I genuinely want my clients, friends, and family to have an amazing vacation. They know that I’m not going to sugar coat anything. I keep it real and also have a lot of knowledge and experience. Disney brings me so much joy and is my bread and butter. Being a specialist in Disney travel is a dream that has been on my heart for such a long time. I’m so happy to live a life that I love. If I can spread magic around to others by booking a vacation, I’m so happy to do it! My clients are the reason that I have a job!
If you or your family are looking for a magical getaway, whether that be to Walt Disney World or a tropical escape, I’d love to work for you!

I’m Lindsey! I would absolutely love to help you and your family plan your most magical vacation yet!
I live in Charleston, SC. Originally from the North Carolina mountains/Asheville, NC and the farm life. I am first a mom, then a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and third a memory maker (aka travel advisor). Growing up our family did not do a lot of traveling but that has since changed. I love to experience new and old adventures with my family. I have one amazing husband and two sweet boys. We love all things Disney, cruising, beach, hiking, camping, and boating. You name it and we’re trying to be there!!
My goal is to share my passion and appreciation of travel with my boys and now with you and your family.
Vacation planning is my dream come true and I can’t wait to help you plan your next amazing adventure!
I have been a Disney fan as long as I can remember. Whether it was walking hand in hand with Cinderella around Cinderella’s Royal Table or watching Mary Poppins, Disney has always brought me joy. That joy was never stronger than the first time we took our boys to the Christmas party and watched them marvel at the parade and catch snowflakes on Main Street USA. That very moment was when I knew Disney trips were about to become a huge part of our lives. My crew now travels to Disney a few times a year. We love to explore something new and find new experiences every time we go. We especially love to try new dining experiences.
Keeping up on Disney news and learning about Disney travel is one of my favorite things to do! I want to use my knowledge to take your stress away and help you have the most magical vacation. My priority as a travel advisor is to get to know you and what’s important to you, take that knowledge, combined with my Disney knowledge, and create your customized vacation. Shoot me an email and let’s get started making magic!
In 2010 I fell in love with Disney, yes, fell in love and have been ever since. My kids were 4 and 6 then and it was their first time going to Disney, my heart melted when my son, who was afraid of most things at that point, went up and hugged Mickey Mouse. I knew after that we would be hooked!
My kids are now teenagers, and we still LOVE going to Disney as well as Universal as my daughter loves Harry Potter. No matter how old you are Disney is truly for all ages, and I learn and experience something new every time we go.
I know firsthand that planning can be a little stressful and overwhelming, I can help with that! As your travel agent I can help tailor the vacation that you are looking for as well as take care of all the details like park reservations, dining reservations, transportation needs and so much more.
I’m excited to start planning your next Magical Vacation whether it be Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Universal, Disney Cruise Line or any of the other exciting destinations!
Margie Reynolds & Jessica Kaufman
We’re Margie and Jessica, the mother/daughter team here to make your travel planning easy and keep the stress at an absolute minimum! Margie and her husband met working at an amusement park many years ago, and it’s been in the family blood ever since!
We’ve spent the past 25+ years vacationing in Orlando, splitting our time between Disney and Universal, and about 7 years ago we started adding cruises into the mix, too! What better way to enjoy your hard-earned time away with family than by enjoying the magic, carefree sailing of the seven seas, or just relaxing at a tropical all-inclusive getaway!
Our biggest regret looking back is not bringing in an expert to help us make the most out of each trip and take the stress off of us, so we’ve made it our goal to help as many families as possible by doing just that! You focus on getting excited about creating incredible memories – let us handle the details.
I grew up on Disney! Taking my first Disney trip at three and continuing every year or few after, I have been on 20+ Disney trips. I love Disney World, but I also enjoy planning new adventures, and visiting other properties such as Aulani, Disney’s Hilton Head Resort, Europe, Disney Cruise Line, and all-inclusives.
I specialize in the details. I can give you advice on the best fast passes to book, adult dining options on cruises, or organize your extra magical experiences, such as Bibbity Bobbity Boutique, holiday parties, and more!
I want to get to know your family and travel companions. My goal is to bring value to your experience by guiding and supporting you every step of the way, while keeping your priorities and preferences in mind. I have planned a variety of travel experiences for myself, family, and friends including honeymoons, girls weekends, family vacations, and large gatherings.
Want to keep those toddlers entertained? I’m your girl! Having three young boys myself, I know that busy families have their hands full and don’t need the added stress when planning a vacation. Let me do the research and assist you in making your travel dreams a reality! Whether it’s dining reservations or excursions, on land or by sea, It would be my pleasure to help you create lasting, magical memories.
Hi friends! My name is Meghan Sjostedt and I am thrilled to be an agent with Fantastical Vacations. From a young age, I have always loved the idea of travel. It wasn’t until I was older that I truly began experiencing the world of travel. Once I dipped my toes in that world, I was hooked. I love traveling with my daughters, ages 11 and 14, on vacations and watching their faces as they experience new and exciting places.
One of our favorite places to travel is Disney and Universal. My daughters and I have traveled as a mother-daughter trio for several years now and have created so many special and magical memories together. Whether we are riding the rides at Magic Kingdom, or strolling along the boardwalk with an ice cream in hand or chilling on the beach at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, we’ve loved our time together.
When we travel together, I find we are the best versions of ourselves and I want to help others have that same feeling. When trying to find the right fit for your family, it can take a lot of time to figure out which resort you might like, when is the best time to go, what restaurants to try and how to navigate parks and rides. Every family is unique, and I would love to find out more about your family so that we can create a vacation that is special and magical. So, whether you are best friends or a family or extended family traveling, I have done it all and can help plan what you need.
When I am not planning new adventures, I am a 5th grade teacher, a hockey and gymnastics mom, as well as a foodie. I have recently taken up golf. I am looking forward to playing with my husband and trying out the four, beautifully designed golf courses located on Disney property.
So, give a little whistle and let’s go plan the perfect girls trip, exciting family adventure or couples retreat!

Mike & Kara Bowers
Hello my name is Mike Bowers and I’m a self described Disney Dork. My love for Disney vacations began in 2017 when my family went for my daughter’s Kindermoon. I, like many dads, thought this would be a one time trip that you must “suffer” through for the family. Boy was I wrong. As with any investment, I researched and planned, and as I was planning for our trip, my thoughts of dread quickly turned into anticipation. I loved learning all the secrets to getting the most out of our Walt Disney World Vacation. After months of planning, our vacation was more amazing than we anticipated and we were hooked. Since that trip, we have gone back to Walt Disney World every year as well as a trip to Aulani and a Disney Cruise.
While I enjoy each and every trip, I love the planning the most and always get a little disappointed when I do not have a trip to plan. One day my wife told me I should be a Travel Advisor because I do such a fantastic job making the most of each trip and could really help people planning their next vacation. Like any good husband I said “Yes Dear.”
If I am not on a Disney Vacation you can usually catch me cooking bbq in my backyard or on a BBQ Crawl across Texas with my wife and daughter.
I’m excited and look forward to helping you plan the perfect vacation!

I’m Monika and I am so excited to help you plan your next magical vacation! My Disney journey started 13 years ago when my husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella’s Castle!! I am a “Disney Adult” and striving to be in the Disney bubble for me is more of a way-of-life than an obsession! Together with my wonderful husband, we are raising our 4 crazy fun kiddos in the, sometimes almost desert, state of Oklahoma and we frequent Walt Disney World 2-4 times a year. I know planning a vacation can be stressful with so many decisions to make, details to pay attention to, and activities to reserve but rest assured, I’ve got you! Let me help you identify your trip goals and execute them for you to create your Most Magical Vacation on Earth!
Hey there! I’m Natalie, a Disney travel agent who is absolutely obsessed with everything Disney! Our family simply can’t get enough of the magic at Disney World, and we make it a point to visit as often as humanly possible (although it never feels like enough).
Apart from our Disney adventures, our family has been fortunate enough to travel to several amazing places around the world. Some of our journeys have included Africa, Anegada, Ireland and many others. It’s been an incredible journey so far! I’m always excited to share my travel experiences and knowledge to help others plan their own dream vacations!
My first trip to Disney was as a toddler in 1971 — and it was love at first float (on It’s a Small World, that is)! I’ve been going to Disney ever since (I remember when Epcot was brand new, when Hollywood was MGM, and when Jungle Cruise was Disney’s only Safari — before Animal Kingdom opened!). Whether as a child, teen, college student, mom with kids, or adult on a friends’ RunDisney weekend trip — that first glimpse of Cinderella’s Castle as you come down Main Street is absolutely magical.
I would love to help you plan your family’s trip to Disney and Universal (and perhaps you’d like to try a cruise?). I’m a runner, a person who has navigated the parks with food allergies, and a mom. My services are complimentary, and I’m thrilled to be part of Fantastical Vacations. Let me help you make magical, fantastical, amazing memories!
Hi! My name is Nicole and I would love to help you plan your next vacation! I love all types of travel but I especially love Walt Disney World and beautiful beaches. I made my first trip to Disney when I was 5 and fell completely in love with the place. I have been regularly going since 2002!
I am happy to help you plan your trip whether it be to Disney, Universal, a cruise, or to relax on a beach! I have years of personal travel experience and I love hearing other’s stories on where they have been or where they would like to go!
I am the wife of a wonderful husband, Ron, that has followed me and our children on some of our trips. My two children love Disney and the variety of things that they have to offer. My daughter, Natalie (15), now loves to go and enjoy the various food options at all of the parks. My son, Levi (12), loves all things Star Wars and the People Mover! My best travel companion and Disney lover is my sister Amanda! I have only been to Disney one time without her!
Adventure is out there! Hi, my name is Sarah! I have been a traveler my whole life! Growing up I had the incredible opportunity to travel overseas to a lot of Western Europe, as well as quite a bit of the U.S. as well. My first trip to Disney was as a kid. I didn’t get back to Disney until I was an adult, but after that trip, I was hooked!
We’ve traveled a ton to Central Florida to experience all the different parks it has to offer, as well as cruised multiple times on DCL. I love helping people, through my own experiences and learning, make their vacations go more smoothly so they can relax more and worry less.
What better way to put something I love and am passionate about to use, than to help other families create the perfect vacation! I look forward to helping you and yours plan the ideal getaway. Whether that’s Disney, Universal, a cruise or an all-inclusive, I’m here to assist in all of your planning needs.
I look forward to talking with you real soon!
I can’t wait to help your family plan an adventure! I specialize in Disney, Universal, world adventures and cruise vacations. I also specialize in planning travel for families with special needs through my years of research and personal experiences. Travel can be complicated, especially to a destination like Disney. When you add in special considerations and worries that go along with special needs, travel planning can seem overwhelming.
I’m here to help! I can be a valuable (and free!) resource guiding you every step of the way as you countdown to your next great adventure.
Using a travel agent is smart planning and it’s free. How? Destinations build commission for agents into the prices you are already paying even if you book a trip on your own. Why not take advantage of the extra benefits of using a travel agent? I can help your family navigate major changes in travel, plan logistics and help organize and secure your plans. I’ll also be your point of contact for any questions along the way. I can save you precious time so you can focus on your already busy life.
It’s my goal to make sure you get the most value out of your vacation budget and create a memorable trip that fits the needs of everyone in your family.
Not ready to travel? No worries. I encourage you to follow my social channels for travel tips, tricks, ideas, fun and stories to spark your spirit of adventure.
Are you ready to make some magic?
Hi! I’m Stef and I have been a Disney girl since my very first visit when I was 4, one hug from Mickey was all it took. Now, as a Disney adult I still love those Mickey hugs, but also love exploring new areas at the theme parks, rides (we were at Epcot for the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy and it was AWESOME), ALL THE FOOD (especially during Epcot festivals) and hotels (our current favorite is the Beach Club), with my husband and our son, Chase.
If the thought of planning a trip has you feeling…. UGH! I’m your girl! I became a travel agent because I enjoy this part of the trip, SO much… and that whole saying “if the ears fit” (or did I make that up?). I’ve planned trips for my family of 3 and my extended family of 11. I’m also a special education teacher, so planning and making things fun is second nature to me. I would love to help customize the most magical vacation for you…. are you ready?!?
Hi I’m Stephanie! I have been an Army wife to my husband Nathan for 16 years. We have lived and traveled many places (our family loves to travel). We began our Disney journey just a few short years ago with our three boys Henry, James and Benjamin. After one visit, I was hooked! I love Disney. I have made several trips to Walt Disney World and have aspirations to travel to Disneyland soon. I also enjoy beach getaways and quick weekend excursions as well.
I love helping others find their passion for traveling! I enjoy helping with tips and tricks to ease planning and preparation. My love for traveling has turned into wanting to help as many as I can have a blast on whichever vacation they choose for their families!
Thank you for letting me assist you on creating the best vacation for you and your family!
I love vacations! I love going on them, planning them, living through others vacations…. however I can get one! My son and I practically live with our bags packed and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Coming from a family who didn’t vacation much, I really developed my love for travel when I had my son. I want him to see and experience the World!
Vacations are magical. If you think about it, vacations have many special powers. They bring people together, pulling us out of our comfort zones and providing new experiences that strengthen our bonds. They can also mend relationships, by allowing us to get out of our busy routines and focus our attention on the relationships that are in front of us. They can be exciting, relaxing, and even a blend of both. I have always believed in the power of a good vacation. Our favorite places to visit are Disney World and Universal Studios Florida. We also love a good cruise and all-Inclusive resort. I truly enjoy making even the smallest budgets magical! As your travel agent, I will take the stress out of planning your next vacation. By getting to know your family, I will help you plan the perfect getaway.
Vacations equal happiness for me and as Donald Duck once said, “ The richest thing we will ever own is happiness.”
I am a true believer that vacations are good for the soul. They’re a great way to break your normal routine, creating opportunities to encounter new cultures, foods and experiences. More importantly, vacations build lifelong memories!
As a child, my family and I took many vacations together so I knew that would be an important part in raising my own family. My husband and I now love to travel with our two boys. Together, we have enjoyed Disney, Cruises and Beach vacations. Of all of the memories we’ve made, I have to admit seeing my boy’s faces as they saw Cinderella Castle for the first time melted my heart. It’s definitely something I will remember for a lifetime.
As much as I love going on vacation, I also love to plan them! I know by putting extra effort into the planning of a vacation, my family and I will have a better experience.
I would love to do the same for you! Whether it is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, a budget-friendly family vacation or an adult get-away, let me assist you in planning your vacation to happiness!!
Hi y’all, I’m Tammy! I am a Texas girl, wife to my best friend, and mama to the coolest 1y/o. From the time I was young, I’ve always been passionate about travel. I just love learning about other cultures, trying new things, and making all the memories. I have had the opportunity to live in New York, California, Rhode Island, and London. I have visited over 30 states and 8 countries…but my heart belongs to Disney. Some of my best memories were made with Disney including my first vacation ever, my first half marathon, our honeymoon cruise, and our daughter’s first vacation.
Whether you love the thrills, to cruise, lounge on a beach, or visit THE castle, I look forward to helping you plan your most magical memories!
Hi, I’m Zach, a Disney Dad. My wife April, and I have two amazing kids, Evelyn and Oliver who are equally obsessed with “All things Disney.” I’ve been going to both Disney and Universal resorts since I was a kid, but I really fell in love with them once I got to experience them through the eyes of our kids.
Whether it’s an adventure-packed day at Disney or Universal, a relaxing stay at an all-inclusive resort, or a cruise, I love helping others plan their dream vacations.
All of the tips and tricks I have picked up along the way help me ensure you have the best time possible on your vacation. From Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom to bass fishing on Crescent Lake and World Showcase Lagoon in Epcot, we’ve been blessed to experience a lot of what Disney and Universal have to offer. I would be honored to help you plan your family’s next memory-making vacation.
My name is Zach! My love for Disney didn’t start until 5 years ago when I met my wife Jessica. If you were to look up “Disney Fanatic “in the dictionary, it would be a picture of my wife! My actual first real trip to Disney World was in 2016 and we have been going at least once every year since. If they keep adding more Star Wars attractions to Galaxy’s Edge we might just have to move to Florida!
Planning our trips brings so much excitement and joy and that’s what makes me want to be Travel Advisor. The excitement I have is what I want to bring to other families. I look forward to helping you plan a magical experience with Fantastical Vacations!
