Our Story

Linda and Maggie found each other while working as Cast Members for Disney and became friends instantly. One of the many things they had in common besides their love for Disney was their love of travel. They both have had a long involvement in the travel industry along with years of volunteering in community projects and helping others. They finally decided to join forces and create a Travel Agency with handpicked agents who are stars in their own right.

My name is Linda and I have been planning vacations for over for over 20 years now. Of course some things have changed since the internet has come along but I have been lucky enough to travel all over the Caribbean, Mexico and the United States. This gives me firsthand knowledge of the places I can tell you about and help you plan where you want to go.

I started traveling when I was very young on our family vacations and this experience has stuck with me ever since. I have traveled by car, plane, cruise line with family, friends, as a couple and alone. Everyone I knew started asking me for advice on where to go, what it was like and if I would help them it there planning. This just lead me down the path of what I was meant to do, Book travel for the love of it.

I love the warm colorful waters of the Caribbean and Mexico and found myself booking more and more trips there. If I'm not doing that I find myself at Walt Disney World and have traveled to the Disney Parks over 100 times since 1976. These are just some of the reasons I specialize in these areas.

I have experienced, climbing the castles in Mexico to seeing Tinkerbell fly from Cinderella's castle. I have Zip lined in Costa Rica and Cancun, snorkeled and sailed throughout the Caribbean, and just sat on a beach and watched the sunset. With doing this first hand I can help you make your dream vacation into reality.

My name is Maggie and I have been a travel agent since 1997 when I received my Associate Degree in Travel and Tourism. I have worked in both the leisure and cooperate aspect of travel, booking Disney, cruises, flights, hotels and all-inclusive destinations to name a few.

My first experience traveling was to Disney World in 1982 with my class, where I fell in love with Disney and have been going ever since. I have 100 trips over the last 35+ years, even doing a couple RunDisney events. As a former cast member, and visiting as much as I have, I believe I have enough experience and am well versed to help you plan your Disney vacations. I have also been lucky enough to take numerous cruises to the Caribbean and have been to over 14 of the Caribbean Islands.

My love is sunshine, warm water, palm trees and sand. I have also been all over the east coast and several places out west.

My name is Melissa. I specialize in Disney Destinations, but I can also help you plan the vacation of your dreams at Universal, on a cruise, or an All-Inclusive. My motto is “collect memories, not things” - travel gives me many opportunities to do just that!

I fell in love with traveling when I was young, and I have continued to enjoy every chance to take a trip - long or short. Growing up I traveled a lot with my parents - cruises, all-inclusive resorts, long road trips, and short day trips. Some of my best family memories are from those vacations. Now that I have a family of my own, we travel as much as we can. We vacation at Disney World at least once a year, in addition to many weekend road trips.

Disney College of Knowledge Graduate

Marriott HE Agent

My name is Nancy, and I have been a Disney travel planner for more than 15 years and have helped thousands of families plan their dream vacations to both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California! I have also book many couples and families on an adventure of a lifetime with Adventures by Disney along with Disney Cruise Vacations. They were all truly amazed and can’t wait for their next adventure.

I have traveled to Disney World and Disneyland with and without kids. Most notably, I average at least 2 trips to Disney per year and know how to travel on a budget.

From the moment that I first saw Disney World in Florida, I fell in love with the magical and enchanting atmosphere! I was only a child at the time, but the Disney magic had woven its spell on me! My largest disappointment is when I see and hear people not enjoying their trips to Disney World. At first, I couldn’t understand why? Then, I realized that most families were walking aimlessly around the theme parks, not knowing which attractions to see, waiting in never-ending lines, being turned away by the popular (and good!) restaurants, missing the entertaining shows, and emerging from the theme parks exhausted, frustrated, and vowing never to return again.

I can make your Disney dreams come true! You can have the same thoroughly enjoyable experience that we have always had! I am a big believer in “the magic of Disney” because with the proper planning, it is one of the BEST places in the world!

I have learned the tricks to avoiding crowds and would love to share those with you. Hint: It isn’t always what you find in touring books because hundreds of people are reading the SAME advice! Time is especially valuable when you are at Disney and my personalized itineraries will help you save LOTS of time!

I am a Disney Vacation planner and I am here to help you plan every aspect of your Dream Vacation from dining, tickets, resorts, to the last minute planning. Over 80% of my clients are repeat families or recommendations from previous happy clients.

Disney College of Knowledge Graduate

My name is Patty and yes, I’m a big Disney fan! My first time going to Walt Disney World was in 1976 when I was 5 and have visited often since then.  I have been there so many times I’ve lost count! I was also a Disney Cast Member for many years

I have been married to my wonderful husband, and we spent our honeymoon in 2000 at Walt Disney World. In 2007 we took our only son for his first ever Walt Disney World vacation. For my husband’s 50 birthday I took him to Walt Disney World and on a Carnival Cruise. For another trip, I planned and organized a 5K Star Wars Disney Run with friends and family. It was absolutely amazing! In 2016 my husband and I renewed our vows in front of the castle wearing matching T-shirts.

Over the years, I have had many friends and family ask me for help in planning their trips. With my knowledge of Disney, I can personalize your dream vacations and take away all your stress and worry. I can help with your fast passes, dining reservations, and special events tickets. I have experienced and stayed at many of the resorts starting with Pop Century all the way to the Polynesian Village.

As a busy mom and part time Preschool teacher, I get excited about family vacations because I understand how important planning ahead can be. My favorite vacations are anywhere and anything Disney, and cruising to the islands!

When you’re ready to plan a trip, I will work with you to discover what you want in your vacation and strive to find a resort that is a great fit for you and your family. I can also help you with any of your other travel dreams and needs. I can book vacations not only to Disney but to the Caribbean, Hawaii, Europe and any other dream vacation destination you may have. Although Disney is my favorite type of vacation to plan, I also have planned and experienced Scotland, Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises and much more.

My name is Vinnie.  I'm not only a big fan of building personal experiences and everlasting memories... but a Disney Fanboy as well!   I utilize my professional experience in technology along with my customer focused background to balance the human side of traveling paired with all of Disney's latest technologies - to create that amazing trip for you.  Not to mention the food,  it's all about the food - if you are like me - so I have some perspective on dining selections and different options based on your eating preferences.  As we get back to normal or should say the "new normal" you are going to need that Disney expertise to help you navigate the waters to create that perfect family vacation utilizing my knowledge of Disney parks and the Disney App.  All travelers are different, so the experience should be different and tailored to each person accordingly.  My rule is simple, I'll take out the complexity in creating a Disney vacation, but you have to have fun building those magical memories!
