Leslie Lowry

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!    

Owner, Fantastical Vacations | Florida

Dan Lowry

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.

Ashley Hizer

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!

Beth Kolb

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 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.

Megan Gibson

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.

Cathy Vaughan

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!  

Senior Travel Agent | Michigan

Chris Smith

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!    

Senior Travel Agent | Ohio

Danielle Page

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!

Senior Travel Agent | California

Jaime Gomez

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!

Jordan Sisson

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!

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 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!

Check Out Our Website Here

Hey there!

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.

Megan Perkins

I grew up on Disney! Taking my first Disney trip at age three and continuing every year or few after- I have been on 20+ trips. While my first love was Walt Disney World, I also enjoy planning new adventures and visiting other properties such as Aulani, Disney’s Hilton Head Resort, Europe, Disney Cruise Line, and all-inclusive resorts.

I specialize in the details to make your vacation magical. 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, friends, and clients including honeymoons, girls weekends, family vacations, and group vacations.

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.

Senior Travel Agent | Wisconsin

Shannon Bohmann

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.

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!

Adam Hall

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!

Hi! My name is Adriana and I love all things DISNEY! It has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. When I became a mom, I shared my love of Disney with my two daughters, Lauren & Sara. Now that my daughters are adults we enjoy visiting Aulani, Disneyworld and absolutely love cruising!

As DVC members we have the opportunity to stay and visit more often and visit Universal Studios as well! We love these parks too! I love planning my vacations, it’s fun and exciting, I love it so much that I have helped my friends and family plan their amazing adventures.  Now I am blessed to have the opportunity to help others plan their memorable vacations.

Alex Plucenik

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!

Travel Advisor | Florida

Alex Windings

Hey y’all! My name is Alex Windings. Me, my husband and our 2 dogs just recently made the move from Tennessee to Florida to be neighbors with Mickey. 

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 has 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, Instagram or you can find us on YouTube and wherever you listen to podcasts at the Unwinding Podcast. Let’s make some magic!

Allie Brubaker

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.

Planning every detail of a vacation can be overwhelming. Having an experienced travel advisor to help you through every step can make your trip practically perfect in every way. 

Since my first trip to Walt Disney World, my family and I have been checking things off our Disney bucket list. Adventure is out there and we want to discover it all! We have stayed at nine of the WDW resorts and visited many more. We’ve experienced amazing activities like horseback riding through Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds, VIP tours, and many after hour ticketed events. Over the past couple years we have expanded our experiences by going to Universal Orlando and taking in the magical moments on Disney Cruise Line. 

I am consistently doing research to keep up with the latest changes. I want to make sure my guidance as a Travel Advisor will help you have no worries on your time with friends and family. Let me help you create core memories on the best vacation possible. I can help you put together a ‘Fantastical Vacation’ with no extra cost to you!

Amber Dillon

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!

Ana Tovar

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?

Andrea Weaver

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!

Cassie Grenier

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!

Catya Mesyef

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!

Chelsea Risser

Hello All! 

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!

Courtney Artau

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!

Dani Battiste

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.

Daniele Robbins

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!

Danielle Cook

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!

Danielle Griggs

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!

Denise Burgos

Hello Friends!  

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.

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.

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!

Heather Williams

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!!!!

Jaycie Rose

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!

Jen & Verlin Balsiger

What if all you had to worry about on your next best vacation was just arriving and letting the memories unfold? 

Hi everyone! We’re Jen & Verlin! We’ve been married since 2015 and family vacations make up the rhythm of our yearly traditions. Destinations such as Disney hold our hearts & our most magical family milestones such as….Our first couple’s trip post-honeymoon, our babymoon, our daughter’s 1st birthday trip when she blew her very first kiss to none other than Goofy, and her 1st haircut on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom. The moment she was finally able to walk up to Mickey & Minnie on her own- she stumbled toward them with arms wide open ready for them to catch her with hugs! She squeals each time she sees a character, and when she saw Mickey right before this picture she declared, “Family Hug!” (as is our tradition at home). Mickey Mouse pulled us all in really close, and boy oh boy, was it a magical moment!

Jen is an art teacher and regularly incorporates Disney, culture, and traveling into her lesson plans whenever she can! Her first memory of Disney stems back to watching Cinderella as a little girl at her Grandma’s house in front of a bowl of Ramen noodles- such comfort! Verlin has a music degree and has been leading Worship in churches since 1996. His first memory of Disney was when his brother convinced him to ride Space Mountain when he was five. He was terrified, and by the time he got off, he was begging to ride it again! Traveling is one of Verlin’s passions as he’s been to 12 countries and counting! 

It would be our pleasure & privilege to help you plan your next best vacation. Whether you’re looking to plan a family trip, couple’s weekend, milestone celebration, or anything in between, a lifetime of precious memories with the people you love awaits you and it’s ALWAYS worth taking the trip!

Jennifer Willison

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!

I know the park maps like the back of my hand and can even tell you where to get the best (and sometimes secret)  snacks, meals and yummy drinks! 

We got bit by the Disney Cruise Line bug last year and have already sailed 4 times. I can help plan adult only Disney and cruise vacations as my husband and I have enjoyed several of both. I can also help navigate the hustle and bustle of taking children (especially toddlers and infants) to Disney and on cruises.  Whether it is pure relaxation knowing your children are having the time of their lives in kids’ club or you want adventures for the whole family, I can help you navigate the seas. 

I am not just any ordinary muggle, when it comes to all things wizarding let me be your marauders map to the magical world of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. From Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade, I will ensure your family has their wands at the ready to chase thrills, sip butter beer and encounter creatures of all shapes and sizes. 

If theme parks and cruises aren’t your vibe, let me help with planning a couples, girls trip or family vacation to an all inclusive resort! My husband and I have traveled to several different countries luxuriating in the offerings of all inclusives with decadent food, unlimited drinks and all of the fun in the sun you can handle! 

Whether you are an adventurous dreamer traveling solo, as a couple, or have a little explorer in tow, I have something for all! I am passionate about helping other families experience the magic and fulfillment travel has given me.  My mission is to create vacations that are like all of our favorite stories, filled with cherished memories, endless laughter and all the little moments that make life truly magical. I will be your pixie dust whisperer, Disney dreamer and duel any wizard that gets in your way. If you are seeking the mouse with the ears, wizard with the scar or just a fruity drink in your hand listening to the sounds of waves I can be your ticket to make all your vacation dreams come true!

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!?

Jordan Riha

Hello! My name is Jordan, and I am so excited to work with you to plan your perfect vacation! I have loved all things Disney and theme parks since I was a little girl. Recently moving to Tampa, I now get to go to the Orlando theme parks often and explore the latest and greatest that they have to offer.

Every Disney vacation creates many magical memories that will last forever. Some of my favorite parts about Disney are the attractions, characters, resort hotels, and of course…the food! However, juggling all these together into one vacation can be a lot of work, which is why I am here to help!

I have gone through the trials and learning experiences when planning Disney vacations, and I am excited to share all my helpful tips and tricks with you.

Vacations are meant to be fun, and full of joy, laughter, and creating memories together that will last a lifetime. It is my goal to create the most magical vacation for you and your party. I look forward to planning with you and your family real soon!

Julie D’Orso

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!

Justen Hyland

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!

Karin Walsh

Hi ! My name is Karin and I am a Disney adult 🙂 To be fair, I was also a Disney baby, a Disney child and a Disney teenager.  I feel incredibly fortunate to say I have visited Disney World more times than I can easily count… it’s always felt like home to me so helping others experience the magic is my true passion.

A little bit about me, I have been married to my amazing husband Robert for 24 years and we have 3 teenage boys, Nicholas (19) and Ryan and Jack (16 year old twins).  The queen of our house is Zoey …our golden doodle rescue and yes, she dresses up as Minnie Mouse every Halloween.  In addition to being a Travel Advisor with Fantastical Vacations, I work in corporate fitness and do personal training and teach fitness classes.  I am certified in Yoga, Mat Pilates , Pilates Reformer, Barre and most group fitness formats (with the exception of Zumba bc I just don’t move that way .. LOL).

I have always been an avid planner … what to cook for dinner, what to wear, what to pack, where to go and what to do … so planning vacations is right up my alley.  I do realize that not everyone loves to plan as much as I
do so I very much enjoy doing the legwork on your behalf.  A vacation should be enjoyable and relaxing … not stressful, and that’s where I come in. (And in case you don’t know … you just can’t wing Disney … you need a
plan.)

I have experienced Disney as a wife on a couple’s trip, as a mom of a child with special needs, as a mom of 3 cranky & rambunctious boys, as a friend on a girls’ trip … the list goes on … but I want to know YOUR NEEDS …
what kind of trip do you want to take and how can I make it seamless and magical?

Although Disney is my passion, I recently visited Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure and the butter beer turned me … I get it :-). Having 3 older teenagers … the thrill rides are
calling us so we’ll be back and I’m totally ready to help you plan your next VelociCoaster excursion too.  And if cruising or All Inclusives is your thing… I’m still your girl 🙂

My favorite quote is, ‘If it feels like home, follow its path’ and that’s just what I did and it brought me to Fantastical Vacations.  I can’t wait to work with you and make your trip the best and most magical ever.

Kate Whitman

Hello friends! My love story with Disney began at the age of 8 when my family moved to Orlando and frequent WDW day trips became part of our routine. I remember visiting Epcot and feeling like I had a passport to the world and opportunities to engage with international cultures without boarding a plane. I created several core memories during those years- and have lots of awkward late 80s and early 90s photos that serve as proof.

After college I moved to Atlanta to embark on my career path but in so many ways Orlando still feels like home to me. I was lucky enough to marry another Disney nerd and we visit the parks from coast to coast with our now teenage son, who is a theme park fanatic and roller coaster enthusiast just like us!

We visit WDW and Universal Orlando several times a year and we are not locals so we have stayed at most resorts, dined at nearly all the table service restaurants, and sat a spell at a lounge enjoying cocktails and mocktails. I have lots of great insights to share to help your travel party get the most out of your vacation to the Orlando theme parks.

We have also visited Disneyland, Aulani, and taken Disney Cruise Lines voyages and I can help you plan for these and other cruises and all inclusive resorts as well.

I would love to have the opportunity to help you plan the vacation of your dreams and create core memories of your own!

Katie Hatcher

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!

Katie Matzenbacher

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!

Kayla Buck

Hey, y’all!

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!

Kelsey Gambrell

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.

Kelsey McIntosh

Hello! My name is Kelsey McIntosh and I would be thrilled to help plan your next magical vacation. Outside of being a travel advisor, I am a wife to my amazing husband and a mom to our little girl. I was born and raised in Southern California, where I was fortunate enough to grow up in the Disney parks. Coming to the parks at such a young age, with grandparents and my whole family, has allowed me to see the parks in so many different ways.

My family’s love for the Disney parks has only grown over the last decade. Since our honeymoon to Disneyland in 2016, I’ve officially converted my husband to a “Disney Dad”. And even though I grew up a Disneyland gal (it will always have a special place in my heart), Disney World has captivated my Disney obsession. There is an abundance of things to do and explore that you simply cannot do everything in one trip, which gives you and me an easy excuse to keep coming again and again. There are such different experiences on each coast, but a magical experience awaits with every kind of Disney vacation!

As a travel agent specializing in Disney, Universal, Cruises and some all-inclusive resorts, my goal is to help you create the most unforgettable experiences that meet your unique needs and preferences. Planning vacations can turn into long to-do lists that become overwhelming and stressful. As your travel agent, allow me to help create the magic by providing my expertise, as well as, helpful tips and tricks for an easy and seamless vacation! So why wait? Let’s start planning your next adventure today!

Kemi Mahoney

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!

Kristin Cirulli

Hey there! I’m Kristin and I would love to help you plan your next Disney, Universal, cruise, or all-inclusive resort vacation! In addition to being a travel advisor since early 2022, I am a wife, cat mom, former operating room travel nurse, personal trainer, Disney lover, and cruise enthusiast! I am lucky enough to have a husband who loves to travel as much as I do, so we vacation as often as we can! Walt Disney World is one of our favorite destinations, but we also love to see the world by way of cruise ship, and who doesn’t love to just chill out at a nice all-inclusive resort every now and again!?

Although I did travel to Walt Disney World as a child and teenager, my love for it didn’t truly take over until I began going consistently as an adult back in 2013. It really feels like you’re leaving the real world behind for a little bit! My husband and I now have annual passes, love attending RunDisney race events, and will be calling ourselves locals very soon! We are both foodies, so we love finding all of the good restaurants and lounges (calories don’t count at Disney)! I have some food intolerances, so I have plenty of good recommendations in allergy friendly dining if you suffer the same. Disney really makes dining with special dietary needs a breeze! I enjoy the process that goes into making a Disney vacation the best fit for every family, whether you are a group of adults, or have some kiddos in tow!

My goal is to take the stress out of planning your vacation from start to finish, so that you can relax and enjoy. Reach out to me and let’s get started planning your next adventure!

Krystle Proper

Hi! My name is Krystle, a busy mom of three, Diet Coke addict, and lover of all things Disney! I have always been the person that plans the trips for friends and family, so when you add in my love of Disney and the parks, the dream job I never knew existed found me. My love for the parks started at a young age by going on our yearly big, extended family trips to Disneyland.

Creating those same magical memories for my own kids at Disneyland and Walt Disney World has been such an incredible experience. Watching my son run through a crowd and throw himself on Lightning McQueen for a hug, or when my daughter was left speechless by being in the presence of her favorites: Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, are moments I will cherish forever!

I’d love the chance to share my expertise and tips with you while planning your next magical vacation!

Laura Leonard

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!

Take the trip! Buy the Shoes! Eat the Cake! I can definitely help you with one of those!

Hi! I’m Leslie Maxwell, and I would love the opportunity to assist you in planning your next
vacation!

My husband and I have two young sons whom we adore traveling with. After navigating the
complications and uncertainties of 2020, we made a conscious decision not to postpone our
dreams any longer. Things we once considered future plans suddenly felt more urgent,
prompting us to seize the moment to create cherished memories right now.

This is where Disney World has played a pivotal role! Although my husband and I had visited
when we were younger, witnessing our children experience the “most magical place on Earth”
compelled us to dive in headfirst, and we haven’t looked back since.

Traveling has been a lifelong passion of mine, from the pristine beaches of the ABC Islands to
the majestic Rocky Mountains, Disneyland, Disney World, Mexico, and beyond. Each
destination has become the foundation of memories we are creating, as a family.

I am eager to share that joy with others! Every step of the vacation process brings me
fulfillment, and over the years, I’ve gathered valuable tips and tricks to enhance each travel
experience. It would be an honor to apply that knowledge to assist with your vacation plans!

Please reach out, and let’s start crafting your adventure! Life is short—take the trip!

Hello friends! 

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!

Marissa Gould

Hi! My name is Marissa and I am super excited to help you plan your next amazing vacation to Disney or Universal! I am a wife, mom of three (two teens and a tween), and a Disney adult. I drink my coffee every morning out of one of my Disney mugs, and I’m always thinking about the next time I can get to the parks, so let me help you get to the parks, too!

Originally from Southern California, I grew up visiting Disneyland Resort often and fell in love with the magical world of Disney as a child. Since having my own family, taking Disney vacations has been one of our most beloved traditions. We have visited Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World countless times starting from the time my kids were babies, and I am thrilled to be able to share all that I have learned with you!

While planning Disney trips has long been a favorite past time, my first career was as a professional tennis player on the WTA tour where I competed on nearly every continent against the best players in the world. For years, weekly travel was my life and this experience not only helped me better appreciate the world around me, but it also instilled a love of adventure, and paved the way for me to turn my favorite past time into my awesome job as a travel agent! In between pro sports and my work at Fantastical Vacations, I have also taught elementary school and written an award winning children’s picture book called A Magical Racquet Ride.

I am thrilled to share my lifelong love of Disney, my expertise in the world of travel and my hands on knowledge of Disney parks with you and your family. I believe that Disney trips are good for the soul and the absolute best place for family bonding—it’s one of the main reasons I wanted to do this job—so I could help every family experience the joy and togetherness that my family feels each time we visit. There is something at Disney for everyone—whether it’s a trip with young children who want to meet their favorite characters, teens who might be looking for thrill rides, or an adults only getaway, let me help you plan an unforgettable vacation. I’ll do all of the work, and you get to enjoy all of the fun! I can’t wait!

Mark Monaco

Hey Friends! Thank you for visiting Fantastical Vacations! My name is Mark Monaco and I am excited to assist you in planning a dream vacation! Growing up, our family loved to travel. From a young age we visited the Orlando theme parks and enjoyed family cruises across the Caribbean. My wife Ashley and I have enjoyed our trips and once we started our family, the travel hasn’t stopped. We have three wonderful children, and we travel with them multiple times throughout the year. We also like to sneak in an adult trip from time to time

The most important thing that I can share in planning your next vacation is that preparation is the key to a great trip. But what happens when you don’t know what to “plan” for? What if the reservation process is too confusing? What if trying to determine which Resort to stay at becomes overwhelming? The planning process for these trips can be daunting but this is where myself and the Fantastical Vacations team comes in. We look forward to collaborating with our clients and planning across any budget from the most critical decisions down to the smallest details for your family. When using the Fantastical Vacations platform, all that’s left for you to do is enjoy and make memories with your loved ones!

Whether you’re considering a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland, an epic Universal Orlando vacation, going on a cruise, an all-inclusive, or timing a trip to coincide with a Seasonal Event (e.g. Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, or one of the many festivals at EPCOT), I look forward to walking through all of your options and tailoring the best trip for your group. I have experience in all of these areas that I would love to share with you to make your trips magical.

When you’re looking at a trip focused on your little ones, a family reunion, an adult vacation, a bachelor/bachelorette weekend, or a getaway just for yourself, I can’t wait to start planning with you.

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!

Michelle North

Hi, I’m Michelle! I am a wife to an amazing husband of 17 years, and mother to a creative, Disney-loving, son. We are all Disney-obsessed and we travel to Walt Disney World several times a year. We have also made wonderful memories at Disneyland Resort in California and Disneyland Paris! I homeschool our son which allows us to build learning into our travels such as our Adventures by Disney England/France trip, taking a cruise with Disney Cruise Line, or visiting amazing places like Montana or the beaches of Florida! 

My son always says the best part of any of our trips is spending time together. We always manage to make new friends on our adventures, like the limousine company owner we met while waiting for Happily Ever After Fireworks at Magic Kingdom, or the family we met on our Adventures by Disney trip who we now meet up with regularly in Florida and Tennessee! These relationships add even more joy to the memories we make together as a family.

Planning our vacations and giving tips to family and friends is truly my passion! l especially love telling people about the variety of fun to be had at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. I can help you with all of the planning details that will reduce the guess work and alleviate the stress of planning a memorable trip. I would love to help you plan your next memory-making adventure that will bring you closer to the people you love, and maybe even make new friends!

Michelle Welsh

Hi Everyone!

I’m Michelle and I am from just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  I’m a Disney obsessed wife and mom of 2.  My goal in life every day is to find the joy and Disney brings my family and I all the joy we crave!

I grew up in a Disney loving house, visiting the theme parks often.  I have seen Disney through my eyes as a child, a teen, a young adult, a spouse and now as a parent through my growing children’s eyes.   Every one of the numerous trips I have taken were different based on our family at the time.  I take pride in changing our trip every time to fit our current needs and wants and love finding new and unusual things to take part in.  I have found niches for every age and tips and tricks to help!

Disney brings me so much joy that I want to spread that joy with others.  I would love to plan your Disney trip to bring YOU joy!  Whether that be thrills, relaxation, toddler activities, adult trips with lounges, a foodie trip, a cruise, or Universal . . . I want to plan a trip that brings you your joy (and eliminates the planning stress)!

Please reach out and let me handle the planning details and share ideas, tips and tricks with you so that you can experience all the joy in your vacation!

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!

Hi!
My name is Neva,  I love my family, traveling, and Disney! The feeling of knowing you are on vacation time is just magical! Some of my family’s best memories are from when we were vacationing in Disneyland, Disney World, Aulani, or on a Disney Cruise ship! 

I have cruised and been in Disney World while pregnant and toting around a three year old. I have traveled with extended family at Disney World and on Disney cruises so I know how tricky it can be navigating all the different reservations! I am here to take the headache out of your vacation planning, so you can relax and enjoy your time away from reality!

Our youngest son was diagnosed with Autism at a very young age. If you have a little one with special needs, I can help you figure out the best strategies to minimize the stress, and increase the smiles for your family!

Regardless of the reason for your vacation, it’s something to celebrate and be excited about! Let me do the planning for you, so you can relax and soak in all the magic!

Nicole Collins

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!

Rachel Hettmann

I grew up as a Disney kid, watching Disney movies on repeat and traveling to Disney World to see it all come to life. My love for Disney truly started to grow when we started vacationing with more family and friends. I just had to know what went into planning such amazing trips, and it was at this point that I became the vacation planner for all of my family and friends. 

Now I find myself in Orlando at Disney or Universal every few months because I just can’t stay away. Universal is perfect for the thrill-seeker in me and Disney always brings the magic that I know and love. All these trips later, the excitement for the next one never seems to fade. Let me share that magic with you by planning your next ‘Fantastical Vacation.’

Fun facts about me: I own way too many Minnie ears, my boyfriend and I identify as Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, I am a Gryffindor, and EPCOT and Animal Kingdom are my favorite Disney parks!

Sara Fillman

Hello! My name is Sara and I have been married to my husband Ryan for 7 years. I have always loved Disney, but the instant my husband and I took our first Disney World trip together we both became instant Disney adults! I have always dreamed of traveling and now my husband and I travel as much as possible, but my heart truly lies in all things Disney. I love planning our trips and keeping up with all things new and exciting at Disney and I would love to help others plan their trips and create the amazing memories we have.

As you can see in the picture, we also love to scuba dive. This is our picture from Epcot Seas Adventures – DiveQuest at the Epcot aquarium. It was such an amazing experience and just goes to show there is always something new and exciting to do on any Disney vacation!

Whether you love the theme parks or a relaxing cruise, I would love to help you plan your next memorable adventure!

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!

Hello!

My first trip to Walt Disney World may not have been until I was a senior in high school, but I instantly fell in love and want to help you experience the magic that I feel every trip. Planning a vacation can feel overwhelming with all of the details that need to be addressed, and that’s where I come in! Let me help take the stress out of planning so you can focus on the magic.

Stef Munyon

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?!?

Stephanie Bartlett

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.

“Are you going to Disney again?” ~ is something I am often asked.

A trip to Disney World is the most magical way to recharge my batteries and make magical memories with my family and friends. Not only do I love going to Disney, I enjoy planning trips just as much. We have made so many special memories centered around the mouse, including trips ranging from two nights to two weeks at Disney World, a week at Disneyland, Disney Cruises, and running a half marathon with runDisney. While we have had many wonderful vacations to the many Disney destinations,  we have also celebrated milestone birthdays, high school graduations and even honeymooned with Disney. On a few Orlando trips, we have felt like we were cheating on the mouse, but we truly enjoyed including some time at Universal Studios.

It would be my honor to help plan a special memory for you.

Zach Rowell

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.

Zach Vaughn

Hey everyone!


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!
