I craft custom trips that delight travelers. Those delighted include couples, families and multi generation travel parties. No two travelers are alike and their vacation shouldn't be either.

As a travel agent, I take pride ...

The magic begins at the castle

With more than 30 trips logged to Walt Disney World I enjoy the rides, the food, the people watching, the shows all the fun!

Things that make the trip so much easier - Magic Bands, I love that not only is the band my room key (for on site properties), my ticket into the parks, fast pass (partnered with the app), memory maker (for all those photos that help park employs take of my family), it is also a form of payment with my stored credit card.  I don't have to carry a huge bag with me all day.  I have my Magic Band and some comfy shoes,  I'm set lets roll.

I start my trips at the Magic Kingdom.  A stroll down Main Street USA a photo stop is a must!  Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Hall of Presidents, Little Mermaid, Goofy's Barn Stormer, a visit to the Hundred Acre Wood, Mining with the 7 dwarfs, and Space Mountain.  Those are just a few of my must do's while visiting.  Along with the evening fireworks.  Lunch at Be Our Guest is always on the list!  

Epot is generally day 2.  Fast Track, Spaceship Earth, Under the Sea with Nemo, Sea Base, Soarin, The Land.  All need to be visited before heading to the World Showcase.  The kids love the scavenger hunt through World Showcase, they learn something new each time.  Mexico is the first stop for a visit with the Three Caballeros.  Norway is a family favorite for a visit with Anna and Elsa and Frozen Ever After.  There is something for everyone at each stop.  Including a scavenger hunt and craft stations for the kids. I must also mention the evening light and fireworks show.  We are split on which we enjoy more, Epcot or Magic Kingdom for fireworks/evening show.  So we plan each at least twice.

A visit during The Food and Wine Festival offers so many food options we have to go back several evening to try everything we are interested in.  

The Spring International Flower and Garden Festival with a special butterfly garden is amazing.  So many delightful flowers to see.  We always keep an eye out for hummingbirds and keep count who see the most - they are plentiful during the festival.  

Animal Kingdom is morning 3.  Viewing animals up close and learning how we impact these beautiful creators and how we can make better choice for their sake and ours is a highlight.  Our all time favorite roller coaster Expedition Everest is a must do several times!

Hollywood Studios starts day 4. Over the last few years with the addition of Toy Story Mania, Slinky Dog Dash and significant increase in Star Wars offerings, this park is getting much more of our time.  We have always loved Tower of Terror and Rockin Roller Coaster, Indian Jones show and Beauty and the Beast.  The new attractions and shows are adding to our enjoyment of this park!

A few words about the holidays at the parks.  The decorating during the holidays is beyond imagination.  We have visited several times in early December to take in the additional activities.  Special evening shows, Santa pictures, additional food offerings from around the world.  After hours events...this is a magical time of year at Disney and we love taking advantage of it!

A character breakfast at the Contemporary is a must for us.  We get pictures with all our favorite characters an amazing breakfast and a great memory before we head for home.

Over the years I have experienced many on-site properties as well as good neighbor properties.  Each has suited our travels in different ways.  The Contemporary with direct monorail access has been a hit.  Caribbean Beach and Port Orleans offered a little glimpse into a different culture, both well received.  Villas as Coronado Springs and visits to others have all been great.
