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

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th
