Where do you call home? Connecticut

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? I wanted to work on a movie set

Why did you become a travel agent? I loved advising my friends on their Disney vacations and my sister suggested I look into doing it as a profession.  It seemed like a great idea so I looked in it and met Pam on a message board – it was one of the best decisions I have made joining Kingdom Konsultant Travel!

Earliest Disney vacation memory? My honeymoon! Most people think I’ve been Disney vacationing since I was little, but my first trip to Disney for vacation was on my honeymoon and after that we went once or twice a year, watching our kids grow up year after year there.

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? When my daughter was born, my father was recovering from lung cancer surgery and wasn’t allowed to fly from FL to CT to meet her.   We flew to Disney when she was 3 months old and my parents joined us there.   My father was so excited to arrive at our room and finally get to hold his granddaughter.   He loved Disney so much he brought the entire family back the next year.

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? As an adult…Spain, London, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Hilton Head S.C, New York.   And I lived in Europe from the age of 6 to 15 – in England, Paris, France and Portugal, and traveled throughout Europe to various countries as a child.

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

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
