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

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

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Toledo Review - A Tale of Two Tapas

I have dined at Toledo twice. Shortly after Grand Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs opened in 2019, I ate there with my mom, and most recently with my fellow agent Maci during our visit for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary. Located on the 16th floor, the atmosphere at this dinner only restaurant is just lovely. Floor to ceiling windows with tasteful décor offer lots of light. You will get a view of all the parks, but some are certainly better than others depending on which area of the restaurant you dine in. Even if you aren’t facing the windows, the ambiance of the orange and pink stain glass on the ceiling and greenery from the trees in the restaurant are a welcome sight. Toledo is self described as serving Tapas, Steak, and Seafood. I ended up only ordering tapas and drinks both times I dined here. On my first visit, my mom and I weren’t too hungry and on my most recent visit, they were unable to serve us the special 50th Anniversary dish because it was technically the da
