Facebook: Travel the World with Tara

I specialize in… All Disney Destinations, Cruises, Honeymoons, Las Vegas, Traveling with Special Needs, Autism Travel. I have experience with Fiji, Mexico, and many destinations within the USA.

Where do you call home? I live in a little town called Mechanicville, NY ( it is near Saratoga for you Disney fans or horse racing fans).

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? I wanted to be a Veterinarian with a practice at my house in Australia. I would also have therapy animals for children with special needs.

Why did you become a travel agent? Growing up I always had a drive to travel but not always the means. As an adult I realized I love to research new places. I love to hear about all the wonders of the world see the fascinating traditions and cultural aspects of lands far away. I thoroughly enjoy helping others to plan and explore these amazing destinations. I love to have conversations about the latest unique thing I have found. Did you know there was a Crooked Forest in Poland, or an Eternal Flame Falls in NY or how about bubble gum pink water in Australia (Lake Hillier). Our world is so amazing and we often get stuck in our small area of it. There is so much more beyond the borders of our cities. I want to help others to expand their experiences, create memories, have stories to tell generation after generation.

Favorite vacation destination? I have a hard time picking a favorite vacation destination because each one has special memories for me. Sometimes it is memories of my children laughing and playing together on the beaches of the Outer Banks.  My parents waking up early to watch the sunrise on the beach trying to catch a glimpse of the dolphins in the waves at Muscle Beach CA. A quiet moment with my husband and no interruptions as we do a food tour through Montreal Canada. Laughter with my friends as we enjoy letting our guard down in EPCOT. For me a vacation that brings me closer to the ones I love is my favorite vacation.

This or that:
  • Walt Disney World or Disneyland: Walt Disney World
  • Star Wars or Avatar: Avatar
  • Rollercoaster or dark ride: Rollercoaster the faster the better
  • Mickey’s Not So Scary or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party !!!!! This parade always amazes me and I could watch it always.
  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine: Flower and Garden.

Disney Favorites:
  • Park: Animal Kingdom Park
  • Disney Resort: ​Port Orleans French Quarter
  • Disney attraction: Flight of Passage
  • Disney snack: Sea Salted Chocolate Covered Caramel
  • Character: Chip and Dale

Earliest Disney vacation memory? My first trip to Walt Disney World was about 1987, I was a teenager I went with my mom, dad and brother.  My brother and I rode Space Mountain so many times seemed like we never stopped. My mom had us ride It’s a Small World so many times that it is a running joke in our house still. Being together as a family creating happy memories together that is what I remember from my first trip to Walt Disney World.

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? ​I love the nighttime shows. Each one is amazing in its own way.

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? Up and down the East Coast of USA. Maine, New Hampshire, all over NY especially New York City, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Outer Banks NC, Florida, California, Las Vegas, Mexico, Montreal Canada, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington DC,

A bit more about you:
  • Favorite TV Show: ​I love crime shows: NCIS (all of them), SWAT, Criminal Minds
  • Favorite Color: Royal Blue
  • Favorite Food: Chicken Parmesan
  • Favorite Quote: See a need fill a need (Disney: Robots). I can often be found volunteering for many things in my spare time.
  • Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

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
