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!

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!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar

Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar is my favorite hidden secret in Epcot's World Showcase, and today I'm going to share it with you! This little wine bar is tucked away between Tutto Italia and Via Napoli in the back left of the Italy Pavilion.  You can't make reservations and can only walk up and wait for a table to be available to enjoy this little piece of Italian paradise.   Once inside, you are transported away from the hustle and bustle of the parks with the dark woods and beautiful bar full of wine selections. If you aren't in the mood for wine, they also offer beer and cocktails.  On this particular trip, we opted for the Italian version of a Long Island Iced Tea and a prosecco. Both were wonderful!  If you can't quite decide what you'd like to enjoy, they offer a variety of wine flights as well to allow you to taste a variety and pick out your favorite (or taste another flight, we aren't judging!)  While you don't have to eat here to enjoy, we like to stop
