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.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
