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!

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 d├ęcor 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
