Agent Spotlight - Angie


Get to know Angie in this week's Agent Spotlight!

Name: Angie Harrington

I specialize in ALL things Disney and Universal but also book travel for all inclusive and other cruise lines.

I live in a suburb of Des Moines, Iowa.

Dream Job? When I was 10 years old, my dream job was being a teacher. 
Why did I become a travel agent? I became a travel agent because Disney and traveling has brought so much joy to my life and I want others to experience that too.  Disney can be overwhelming and often times people avoid it because of the planning involved.  I love to help people plan and enjoy their vacation time instead of being worried and stressed.

My favorite vacation destination is a Disney Cruise.  My favorite island is Castaway Cay!

This or that:
  • Monrail or Skyliner: Monorail
  • Mickey Ice Cream or Mickey Pretzel: Mickey Pretzel
  • Avatar or Star Wars: Star Wars
  • Dark Ride or Rollercoaster: Rollercoaster
  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine: Food and Wine
Disney Favorites:
  • Park: Epcot
  • Resort: Polynesian
  • Nighttime spectacular: Whatever is going on at MK, I love the fireworks behind the castle!
  • Restaurant: Very hard to chose, but I’ll go with California Grill
  • Disney snack: Mickey Pretzel or Dole Whip

Earliest Disney Vacation memory? Going with my parents in the 80’s and buying the largest stuffed Mickey and Minnie I could find!  They each got their own seat on the airplane on our way home.  Luckily it wasn’t a full flight😀

Disney experience that brings tears to my eyes? Watching my kids fall in love with Disney the way my husband and I have. Seeing the magic in their eyes as a toddler and seeing their love of Disney vacations grow as they grow.

Extra travel: WDW, DL, DCL, Universal Studios, Royal Caribbean, Hawaii, San Diego, Niagra Falls, lots of Florida Beaches and fun family spots in the USA.

A bit more about me:
  • Favorite Color: Purple
  • Favorite Food: Pizza
  • Favorite Sports Team: Green Bay Packers
  • Favorite Hobby: Traveling, Swimming, and football
  • Favorite Quote: It's kind of fun to do the impossible -Walt Disney

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
