I specialize in… Walt Disney World Vacations

Where do you call home? I live in Venedy, Illinois (a very small, farming community about 45 minutes east of St. Louis, MO. I live with my husband, Reed, and our chocolate lab, Lady. We have a baby girl arriving in May to grow our little family.

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? When I was young, I really thought I wanted to be a veterinarian. I lived on a farm and loved animals.

Why did you become a travel agent? I became a travel agent to continue my love of Walt Disney World and travel in general. I worked for the Walt Disney Company during my Disney College Program, and when I left, I knew I wasn’t done with them completely. I have always had friends and family ask for my advice when traveling to Walt Disney World, so I thought, why not give advice as another job.

Favorite vacation destination? Walt Disney World

Earliest Disney vacation memory? My earliest Disney vacation memory is from my very first trip in the year 2000. I have a strong memory of this because we still like to watch our home movie from this trip. We stayed at the All-Star Movies Resort in the 101 Dalmations section and I remember being amazed by just that area. With the large character statues and play areas, and then the main pool with Sorcerer Mickey spraying water, our magical vacation started the moment we stepped foot on our resort.

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? My emotional Disney experience is every time I think about watching the Wishes fireworks show for the last time on my Disney College Program. I was surrounded by other cast members and I still tear up every time I listen to the Wishes soundtrack.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Narcoossee’s – A Forgotten Favorite

Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort I’ve been vacationing at Walt Disney World since I was four years old.   Throughout the years, I have eaten at countless restaurants across the parks and resorts.   I have my fair share of favorites that I always make sure to visit on each trip but some restaurants just don’t make the cut on each and every trip.   Sadly, Narcoossee’s was one of those restaurants. I had been to Narcoossee’s once as a child and I remember enjoying the view and the food but I didn’t have a lot of memories of the place.   On a trip in 2009 with my parents, we decided to revisit the restaurant and we all enjoyed our meal but for some reason it just didn’t stand out to me.   Thankfully, we decided to go back to Narcoossee’s in 2012 and it was one of our favorite meals of the trip!   A forgotten favorite had returned as a front-runner for my favorite restaurant and this time, I wasn’t going to forget it! I've visited Narcoossee's on almost all t
