Spotlight on Scott - Agency Manager

This is Scott VanSyckle, live from the Kingdom Konsultants HQ in northern NJ!  I was asked to do a blog, but since I’m the man behind the scenes, I figured I’d change it up and let you all behind the curtain a bit.

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

You didn’t know this blog came with commercials, did you??? 

Over the next few months, you’ll be seeing some great things going on with Kingdom Konsultants, so stay tuned…

...and now back to our regularly scheduled blog:

Are you married? Yes, for almost 25 years

Any children? Two daughters

Favorite vacation destination? Castaway Cay

Favorite Walt Disney World Resort? Grand Floridian or Animal Kingdom Lodge

Favorite Walt Disney World attraction? Soarin’

Earliest Disney vacation memory? My mother 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…most recently about a month ago to help my Cast Member daughter move into her new place.

Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Disney Cruise Line

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes?  Seeing a Cast Member make memories for a special-needs family.

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? I’ve traveled up and down the East Coast of the United States.  I’ve experienced four DCL trips (all Bahamian, so far), and looking forward to the next one in September 2016 (Eastern Caribbean)

Rockin’ the fanny pack back in the 90’s.   Don’t laugh, you know you were rockin’ it too.
Favorite TV Show? M*A*S*H

Favorite Movie? The Blues Brothers

The New Rules of Marketing & PR by David Meerman Scott
SEO 2016 by Adam Clarke
Creating Magic by Lee Cockerell

If you had to pick another job besides being a travel agency manager, what would you do? Sports talk-show host

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
