I specialize in… Disney, Universal, Hawaii, family vacations

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!

Favorite vacation destination? Disney World with Hawaii a close second

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.

A bit more about you:
  • Favorite TV Show: Magnum PI reboot
  • Favorite Hobby: Shopping
  • Favorite Color: Yellow
  • Favorite Food: Pasta
  • Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

Let Marla help you plan your next vacation!

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…

During the work, the walkway alongside the castle is restricted, and the crane may be visible from Main Street U.S.A.

The crane will most likely be visible until shortly before the first Christmas party on November 8.

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…
