Agent Spotlight - Elizabeth

Agent Liz enjoying Magic Kingdom 
Name: Elizabeth Guffre

Where do you call home? Home is wherever I am with my husband! (or wherever the Air Force sends us!) We currently reside in FL, and I am originally from San Antonio, TX.

Are you married? I sure am! I married Mike about 7 years ago, and almost daily feel like I must be the luckiest lady alive!

Any children? While we don't have any of our own, we have about 10 God-kids.  Our goal is to take or go with them to a Disney Resort every 5 years and so far we are succeeding in that goal. Now that I write it down, I wonder if that's why people keep asking us...

Favorite vacation destination? If we aren't counting Disney, then Seattle, WA. Not only does it have my sister and niece to draw me in, but each time I go I find new delightful treats! I'm an unashamed foodie, and the Seattle culinary scene is a dream.

Favorite Walt Disney World Resort?  Disney's Wilderness Lodge at Christmas Time.  The magic of the season combined with the magic of Disney in such a cozy environment is just about perfect in my book!

Favorite Walt Disney World attraction? Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom. I first rode it when I was about 10. My older brother and I thought we were too cool for school and absolutely no ride could scare us! (I loved  Tower of Terror!) We were so scared, we both ducked and covered, and immediately wanted to ride it again and again! To this day I get excited jitters when the ride starts!!

Favorite Disney restaurant?  Le Cellier is a fan favorite for a reason, and I'm not sorry to say it tops my list!  Everything on the menu is stick to your bones filling and oh so delicious!  I am hoping this
answer will change in November, however, when I finally get to try Victoria and Alberts.

Favorite Disney snack? It is not possible to give an honest answer to this question because it is not possible to only pick one. At this moment, however, I am craving the samosas from Animal Kingdom.

Wishes, Fantasmic or IllumiNations? I love IllumiNations.

Favorite Disney Souvenir?  My oversized T-shirt from Dinosaur when it was still called Countdown to Extinction!  It holds such fun memories, and I always get compliments from cast members when I wear it!!

Earliest Disney vacation memory?  I remember eating roasted pecans from Magic Kingdom at night with my family, and feeling contented joy.

Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland or Walt Disney World?  Walt Disney World by a hair.  I just love Epcot and Animal Kingdom. They are such unique experiences I never tire of! When we no longer live on the beach however, it may change to Disney Cruise Line!!

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes?  Whenever I think about my first God-baby Ellie at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique, especially when they twirled her around and opened the curtain. She is pretty reserved, and was obviously quite pleased with the experience, but kept trying to stifle her smile throughout the process. When the curtains drew back and she saw herself with the effects, she absolutely beamed. To this day I haven't seen a smile that big on her face!

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? I have traveled most of the U.S.A., and New York is the last place on my stateside bucket list!  I have also traveled to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Relaxing at Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot
Favorite TV Show? Boy Meets World

Favorite Movie? In all honesty, the documentary Dear Zachary changed my life, and has stayed at the top of my list, but it is incredibly heartbreaking, so I don't know about recommending it to wide audiences. Instead, I'll go with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It never fails to makes me
laugh!

Favorite Color? Purple

Favorite Book?  Half the Sky and A Path Appears top my list, but The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was a fantastic read, and one I often recommend!

If you had to pick another job besides being a travel agent, what would you do?  I would love to be a cheese sampler! Is that a career? Oh, what a wonderful job that would be!

Contact Agent Elizabeth if you're ready to plan your perfect getaway!

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

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…

A crane is now in position behind Cinderella Castle to begin the installation of the Castle Dreamlights for the Frozen Holiday Wish show. 

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.



For the first time in many years, Disney's Animal Kingdom will be hosting a New Year's Eve party on December 31, 2019.

The park will be open until midnight and will offer DJ's in Discovery Island, Asia and DinoLand U.S.A., along with a New year's Eve countdown show on the Tree of Life.

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…
