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

  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine: Food Wine

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. 

Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World?

  • Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana
  • Silver Dollar City and Branson, MO

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso.
