I specialize in… Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, All Inclusive Resorts, Disney for Adults, Girls Getaways, Disney Weddings

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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
