Agent Spotlight - Agency Manager Scott


This is Scott VanSyckle, live from the Kingdom Konsultant Travel HQ in northern NJ!  I was asked to do a blog back in 2016, and since that blog was such a roaring success, I figured I’d surprise you and let you all behind the curtain a bit….again!

Why am I writing a blog?  In all honesty…they asked me to write one, so here goes.  While most know that Kingdom Konsultant Travel books Disney-based travel, not many are aware that we can book ANY destination.  In fact, this team of incredible people is constantly striving to improve on their world-class customer service by traveling to new destinations, taking courses, and communicating within the team (SO IMPORTANT.)

Earliest Disney vacation memory?  My mom took me to Walt Disney World in 1972, but I was too young to remember any of it.   We went again in 1979 and numerous times after that.

MyMagic+ is continually improving with the addition of new features.
