Where do you call home? I'm originally from Pennsylvania but now call Dallas, Texas home.

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? I really wanted to be a teacher or open my own bakery.

Why did you become a travel agent? I absolutely adore the travel and hospitality industry.  I love to be able to help my clients plan that perfect getaway and make it stress-free for them.

Favorite vacation destination? Aside from Walt Disney World, I really love Europe or anywhere with a cool food scene!  I try to cross a new country off my "must visit" list every other year.

This or that:
  • Caribbean cruise or Mediterranean cruise: Mediterranean, I love all the history the ports have to offer. 
  • Mickey or Minnie: Minnie Mouse, polka dots are my thing. 
  • Mickey pretzel or Mickey ice cream: Ice cream all the way! 
  • Rope drop or close down the park: Rope Drop, best way to beat the crowds!
  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine: Epcot never looks as beautiful as it does during Flower and Garden Festival.

Disney Favorites:
  • Park: Epcot
  • Disney attraction: 3-way tie between the Peoplemover, Tower of Terror, and Expedition Everest!  
  • Nighttime spectacular: Happily Ever After
  • Photo spot: in front of Dinosaur we always have to take a photo every trip
  • Movie: Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty and Tangled 
Earliest Disney vacation memory?  When I was about 2, I exclaimed "I want to go to Disneyland!" so my Mom and some of her friends drove across the country and took me there.  I don't know if I really remember it, but the story gets told quite a bit to this day!

My first Disneyland trip - I'm the little one!
Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? ​I tear up walking into the Magic Kingdom the first time on each trip, and while watching fireworks from Main Street.

Touring the San Francisco Bay Area
Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? I'm a bit of a travel nut, so bear with me here...  Aside from WDW, I've been to Universal Orlando Resort, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, on Caribbean and Mediterranean Cruises, and ​experienced the England and France Adventures by Disney itineraries.  I've also been to many European destinations including England, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Germany.  Stateside, I've been as far as Hawaii, up and down the East Coast from Boston, NYC, Washington D.C. to the Florida beaches, of course around Texas, and then the West Coast from San Diego up to Seattle!

A bit more about you:
  • Favorite Hobby: cooking and baking
  • Favorite Color: glitter
  • Favorite Food: I love Italian food and dessert, but I love going to new restaurants and exploring the food scene either way!
  • Favorite Sports Team: Penn State Nittany Lions
  • Favorite Quote: "All of your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney
  • Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff!

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

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
