My love of Disney began at a young age and grew as my parents brought me for at least two weeks every year. Now I have been to Disney over 40 times!

       Disney holds a special place in my heart because a lot of my favorite memories were made there.  I love helping clients plan their vacations, knowing that my personal experience can help create magical memories for their family as well.  I have experience bringing 3 young children and would be happy to answer any questions or offer tips.  Please reach out to begin planning the vacation of your dreams! Remember- if you can dream it, we can plan it!

 I put my mom and teacher skills to good use by making detailed, personalized itineraries that are just right for you and your family. From planning dining reservations and FastPasses, to first haircuts, Bibbidi Bobbiti Boutique, and dessert parties, I can do as much or as little as you’d like - all for free! I also stay on top of Disney deals and your trip to ensure you have the very best price possible, even after you put down your deposit - using a travel agent can save you tons of money! I also have celiac, and have tons of knowledge about traveling with food allergies. It’s one of the reasons I love Disney so much - I can really *eat* there! I’d love to help you plan the magical vacation of your dreams!

Hi everyone! I’m Ashley and I am a Disney enthusiast! Disney movies, music, parks, rides and food are some of my favorite topics of conversation. My first trip to Disney was when I was 5 months old, of course, I can’t recall anything that happened on that trip, BUT my parents started me off young and I am so thankful that they kept taking us back again & again. My husband is a Disney enthusiast as well, he had only been twice before our honeymoon and now he can’t get enough of all the new happenings at Disney! We love this place and can’t wait to make going to Disney a regular tradition with our future children and give them all the great memories we cherish! I am so happy to be planning Disney vacations and helping so many people discover & remember the magic of Disney!

 Hi!! My name is Breanna and I’m an avid Disney lover. My parents brought us to Disney World more times than I can count! So many wonderful memories have been made during my childhood and even into my adulthood. I’m excited to be able to show my own family the ins and outs of Disney as our family grows. We have a two year old and have traveled with him to Disney 3 times already. I’d be happy to help with any tips or tricks for traveling with littles. I have a background in Culinary Arts and one of my favorite parts of Disney is the FOOD! There are so many amazing restaurants at Disney and I enjoy encouraging people to try new and exciting food. I love planning our own trips and the anticipation of our Disney vacation makes it so much fun. I love that I can help anyone plan their trip, whether they’ve been more times than they can remember or are embarking for the very first time.

Hello! My name is Cassandra and I live in the gorgeous mountains of East Tennessee. I teach 4th grade in a rural school system surrounded by farmland and the “simple life”.  I am happily married to my husband of 11 years, Bryan. I have an 18 year old son, Nate, who is finishing his first year of college and a 11 year old daughter, Nataleigh, who is finishing 5th grade. 

My love for Disney did not start until my first trip as an adult in 2014. I remember visiting Walt Disney World when I was 8 years old and then again my senior year of high school, but the magic began in 2014. During our 2014 Fall Break trip, my children and I fell in love with the magic of the resorts and parks. We quickly planned another family vacation for Fall Break 2015. After this trip, I planned our may 2016 trip. It was on this trip that we bought our Annual Passes and the rest is history! We have experienced 16 trips since that first one in 2014 with many more to come! 

While I love planning any type of trip, large groups have become my specialty. I successfully planned a Girl Scout Troop trip for 42 people in May of 2018. Many of these guest were first timers and had the time of their lives! No trip is too big or too small. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

My first trip to Disney was when I was 21. After that trip, my wife and I have celebrated every big event of our lives there. We went on our honeymoon to Disney and each of my 3 children spent their first birthdays in Disney. My boys had their first haircut at the barbershop and my daughter has danced in the nighttime parade and sang on stage. Normally, I am not a big planner. My wife likes to be in charge of all the details in our daily lives. But with Disney, I enjoy planning everything, big and small. It brings me joy to plan a magical trip for my family and friends. Many people have said our children wouldn’t remember their trips when they were so young. The magic in my daughter’s eyes year after year of seeing Stitch, the excitement for my middle son in seeing all the Star Wars characters and the joy in meeting Princess Elena in my youngest son’s face is all the proof I need to believe. Magic is real and lasts forever. My family’s happiest memories have been spent on Main Street, USA. “Adventure is out there.” Allow me to help you plan it.

 Hey, Disney fans! I’m a middle school teacher, mother of three, and organized planner who loves lists, itineraries, and the challenge of booking Disney trips. I remember visiting Disney World as a child and being amazed - Cinderella’s castle, Mickey ice cream bars, nighttime firework extravaganzas. Disney World is undoubtedly a magical experience for a child, but a recent family vacation allowed me to appreciate Disney as an adult - amazing accommodations, superb service, and a wide array of dining options. After making priceless memories, my family can’t wait to go back! I’d love to help you plan a short weekend getaway or an extended vacation of a lifetime.

Hi Everyone!  My name is Toni Marie. 

I have loved Disney for as a long as I can remember. My favorite is Dopey!!  But I love all things Disney.  I have a very large collection of collectibles and movies. I can’t get enough info on all things park related. I am continuously researching and keeping up to date with what’s new and what’s in the works. 
As a mom it was my dream to take my family to Disney World and last year we made it happen. My boys loved it just as much as me. The magic is real!!

My favorite park is the Magic Kingdom. My favorite ride this time around is Seven Dwarf Mine Train. But I love all of the rides. There is something to be said about the original rides and how Walt and the Imagineers were so ahead of their time.
I honestly can’t get enough of Disney!!  I find myself talking about it constantly to anyone and always dreaming of being there.
It will be my pleasure to help you officially plan your Disney trip. I have been helping family and friends for a long time to plan their trips. Making this official is a dream come true!
