Ashley and family
Why did you become a travel agent? I’m a planner by nature and love everything Disney. When I realized that I could share my passion for planning Disney vacations, I knew I needed to become a travel agent!

Favorite vacation destination? Walt Disney World but Disney Cruise Line is a very close second.

This or that:
  • Monorail or Skyliner: Monorail
  • Mickey pretzel or Mickey ice cream: Mickey pretzel
  • Star Wars or Avatar: Star Wars
  • Rollercoaster or dark ride: Rollercoaster
  • Flower and Garden Festival or Food and Wine Festival: As much as I love food, I have to go with the Flower and Garden Festival
Disney Favorites:

  • Disney Resort? Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  • Disney snack? Croissant Donut
  • Nighttime spectacular? Happily Ever After

Earliest Disney vacation memory? I remember staying at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and riding the monorail non-stop. I can’t go to Walt Disney World now without riding the monorail or my trip doesn’t feel complete!
Ashley and family at Disneyland

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? ​Watching Happily Ever After with my family. The whole thing is just so magical! Getting to see the excitement and wonder in my kids’ eyes while watching the fireworks, projections and Tinkerbell fly across the sky, gets me every time. Disney really knows how to pull at your heartstrings!

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? Most of the East Coast of the United States, from Massachusetts to Florida, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Texas. Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Nassau, Bahamas, Falmouth, Jamaica, Melbourne, Australia.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
