  • Aaron Swiniuch

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Aaron has been in love with Disney since a very young age, taking his first trip when he was 4 years old. Disney World has always been his home away from home, though he never had the chance to live there. Some of his favorite things to do in Disney World are: riding the Haunted Mansion, eating as much Dole Whip as he can, and making sure to track down every Disney princess before he leaves. He has decided to become a Magical Vacation Planner because he loves the magic of Disney and wants to help others experience all he has experienced.

    Outside of vacation planning, Aaron is an Elementary School Teacher (yes, with a Disney themed classroom) and actor. Each and every day, his students enter Disney World and experience as much magic as he can (without the help of Tinkerbell!) He loves teaching the future of our world and bringing them up on the values of the Walt Disney Company.

    Feel free to contact Aaron today, so that he can help assist you with your special and magical vacation!

  • Abbey Parra

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hi! I’m Abbey and would love to help you have an amazing vacation, whether it’s in California or Florida. I currently work at a global talent agency, dealing with all sorts of clients, and help out in the travel department as well. I take pride in my customer service skills and will always put you first. Your happiness is my job!
    I grew up traveling to Disney with my family, leading me to the Disney College Program. I worked at the Magic Kingdom, where making magic for Guests was just part of a day’s work. Working there taught me so much about giving each Guest their own unique experience. We’re all different – so why should our vacations be the same?
    My love for Disney has only grown through the years. I’ve cruised with DCL, am an annual passholder at Disneyland and visit Disney World as often as I can.
    I am a huge Disney Princess fan. All my friends, family and even my boyfriend’s family know me as their own Disney Princess! I am constantly getting asked for travel advice, tips, and any questions related to Disney. I honestly love planning vacations, making people happy and, of course, anything Disney – so this is the perfect job for me. My mom, another huge fan, will be helping me out as well so you can be sure to have two experts on your case.
    This Disney Princess will make your vacation as magical as can be! My specialties are travelling as adults, as a couple, girls’ trips, with kids of all ages, teenagers and solo trips (yes, these can be done and are still super fun).

  • Alicia Cowan

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have been a big fan of Disney ever since I can remember. A fond memory of mine is going to the Disney Store with my grandparents every time we went to the mall.

    I took my first vacation to Disney World upon graduating High School. It was a magical time, and I felt as if I was home. No other vacation measured up to my time at Disney World.

    My second time at Disney World exceeded the first because my husband proposed to me at Cinderella’s Wishing Well by Cinderella’s Castle. It is a story I always tell to everyone when I talk about Disney World.

    I have now rubbed my love for Disney off onto my infant son. He loves Mickey Mouse so much, it is no doubt he is my son!

    I can’t wait to start bringing the Magic I have brought to my family to other families!

  • Amanda Ann Trosclair

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My journey started as a small child running through the turnstiles at the Magic Kingdom tripping, falling and tumble setting towards the giant green mickey mickey that greets you every morning. Every Disney vacation day has been magical ever since! When I grew I wanted to be Goofy that water skis around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Never did I think one day I would run a half marathon around it!

    I have been an annual passholder in Orlando since approximately 2009, I have run several of the RunDisney races and visited Disneyland. I love planning trips for friends and family. Combining my love of travel and my love of Disney, I would hope travelers get to experience the excitement and the magic that comes with a great Disney vacation or cruise.

  • Amanda Bugli

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Amanda first fell in love with Walt Disney World as a small child and it has remained one of her favorite places to vacation. She quickly converted her husband to a Disney fan, and now she, her husband and 2 small children vacation at Walt Disney World or on Disney Cruise Line as often as they can.

    Amanda has traveled to Walt Disney World and on Disney Cruise Line many different times, each time being a little bit different from the last. She has traveled with just adults before having children, as a family of 4 with a toddler and infant, on an extended family trip with 13 people including grandparents and great grandparents, and in a group of 9 including 5 children. She has stayed at many resorts on property and visited Disney World for as short as 2 days and as many as 12. All of these experiences have given her the insight that what works for one person may not work for someone else but that there is something at Disney, and on Disney Cruise Line for everyone!

    Amanda can’t wait to share her love of Disney and start helping you and your family plan your magical vacation.

  • Amanda Hohf

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    One of the most vivid memories I have from my childhood was visiting Disney World for the 1st time and being told I was too short to ride Space Mountain. I was 5 and my older was 6 and she was tall enough to ride. As she walked into line, she turned and stuck her tongue out at me. Space Mountain has always been my favorite ride and it’s always my first ride.

    Since that first trip at 5, I have visited Disney World and taken Disney cruises with my family. I have become know as the “Disney Planner” in my family and have become the person that family and friends come to for Disney information. Last year, I fulfilled one of my “bucket list” dreams…joining the Disney Vacation Club.

    I look forward to sharing my love of Disney with my clients and to help them plan their dream trips.

  • Amanda Quinlan

  • Amy Holbrook

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Although Amy’s first Disney vacation was as an adult, from the first time she stepped foot onto Main Street USA she realized that the magic of Disney transforms any willing heart into that child they may have forgotten. As a wife, and mother of 3, she quickly found ways to make Disney affordable, and now that her children have grown up and left the nest the “Disney Trip” is still the greatest way to ensure everyone will come together as a family, even more than Christmas or Thanksgiving…nobody misses the Disney trip.

    Amy understands that Disney magic is just as abundant at the Value resorts as it is at the Moderate or Deluxe accommodations, having stayed at many resorts in each category. By experiencing as many restaurants and special events as possible; Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Christmas Party, and Run Disney, Amy found that she could make the experience even more magical for everyone. She loves planning trips and looks forward to helping you make your Disney wishes come true.

  • Amy Jackson

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love for Disney started with my first visit at the age of 4. Every time I return priceless memories flood my mind from the sights, sounds, and smells of Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom to winning a scavenger hunt on Tom Sawyer’s Island with my family as a child to watching my own daughter’s face light up as she sees the fireworks display light up over Cinderella’s Castle for the first time, every moment is truly magical!! Disney vacations are always the highlight of our year and we try to go at least once a year whether it be to the Disney Parks or on a Disney Cruise. No matter which location we choose, every single Disney experience is truly unforgettable!

    Disney planning has become a huge passion of mine and I can’t wait to help other families create those same magical Disney moments that I have had the privilege of experiencing all these years!!

I have been going back ever since and our family loves it!!! I love to help people and I love helping people plan their vacations. So people would come to me and ask me to help plan the Disney vacation and I would, then I saw the opportunity to where I could help people plan their Disney vacation and other vacations so I signed up and did the interview and was able to come aboard.

Also I love taking my Family to Disney and we always have a wonderful time and I love the atmosphere at the parks and hotels we have stayed at .

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I love all things Disney! My kids who are all college aged now, have grown up on Disney. We took our first trip in September 1996. My boys were two and 5 at the time, my husband thought that this would be a one time trip, but he was so wrong! I began planning our next one on the way home. We returned in May 1997, I was 7 mos pregnant with my daughter. She went to Disney even before she was born. I love planning vacations, it doesn’t matter if its my own or someone else’s. It makes me so incredibly happy! I will treat your vacation with the same care that I would my own.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hi! My name is Anna Butler. I am a military wife and mother to two toddlers and another on the way. My Grandfather took me to Disney world more times than I could count when I was a child and I fell completely in love with the Magic of the Disney experience. While in college I moved to Orlando to do an internship at Disney World and I enjoyed learning the ‘behind the scenes’ part of the business. My husband and I honeymooned at Disney world and enjoyed the relaxing side to the resort. We since have taken our two toddlers and enjoyed the craziness that comes with that! My favorite memory by far was seeing my son watch the parades at the Magic Kingdom.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I started vacationing at Disney as a child however it wasn’t until my first trip with my daughter and husband in 2009 that I truly fell in LOVE with all things Disney. I have been lucky enough to go to Disney yearly since then and experience Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. The holidays are my favorite time at Disney because in my opinion everything is better at Disney. I look forward to helping you plan a magical and memory filled vacation.
