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

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

Tips for Scoring a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group

Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience. No spoilers here (aside from some pictures), but this attraction is absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, it can also be challenging to actually get to experience. Rise of the Resistance is currently the only Walt Disney World attraction that requires guests to join a virtual queue. There is no standby line, FastPass+ or Single Rider Line available at this time. (This was true even before COVID-19.) So, how do you join this virtual queue and get assigned to a boarding group? We at Kingdom Konsultant Travel have compiled some of the best tips and tricks to improve your chances of joining the virtual queue.  It's important to know that for this post we're focusing on Walt Disney World's version of the attraction, but many of these tips can be used for the Disneyland version of the attraction as well.  TIP #1: Check y
