    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My passion for Disney started when I was a teenager but I did not visit the Magic Kingdom until I was a newlywed! It was a truly magical vacation and at that moment I decided that I wanted to share the magic of Disney with my friends and family.

    As a family, we have visited both Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom along with enjoying a Disney cruise. Watching my daughter and mother both experience Disney magic for the first time is a memory that I treasure. In addition visiting the Disney Parks, we have also visited Universal Studios Orlando.

    I love spending time planning vacations for my family and friends! No detail is too small in planning the perfect vacation. The best part about having me help you put together your Disney vacation? There is no cost to you!

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Becca has been in love with all things Disney since she was a little girl. While growing up, she was fortunate enough to have a mother who instilled the love for Disney magic and went on several trips a year including a Disney Cruise. Since then, Disney World has been her home away from home. Fast forward to now and Becca is a WDW Annual Passholder living her dream as a travel agent who can use her knowledge and experiences to help other families have the same magical moments she did. Some of Becca’s favorite things to do in Disney World are running all the runDisney races (the miles are worth the cute Disney medals!), strolling down Main Street with a Dole Whip, eating and drinking around the world in Epcot, playing in Andy’s backyard in Toy Story Land and eating the delicious food at Sanaa while watching the animals.

    When Becca is not planning Disney trips, she is teaching second grade (with a Disney themed classroom of course), spending time with her husband Bill and their dog Lola Belle and working on her Disney blog/Instagram account Magical Ears Traveler.

    Feel free to contact Becca today so she can help you get started on your magical vacation!

    My love for travel began as a small child. Every year, my parents took me and my three sisters on vacation to somewhere memorable. Many of those years – sometimes more than once – the big surprise would be a trip to our favorite place: Disney World! Every time they announced we were going there, the only sound for miles around was four small girls screaming at the top of their lungs in excitement! As an adult, and after having kids of my own, I began sharing this magical tradition with them.

    Not only has my passion for all things Disney been passed on to my children, but my husband has also become a Disney super fan!

    Surprises, presents, and boundless hours of blissful research are part of each of our Disney experiences. There is always something new and exciting to do in the Disney realm! Even after years of visiting Disney, we find fresh adventures, new places to eat, hidden treasures, and endless reasons to keep coming back. In fact, we are always planning our subsequent trip to Disney on the ride home! Our next mission: Disney Cruises, Disneyland and eventually a fun-filled anniversary celebration to Aulani!

    After years of vacation planning for my own family, friends and extended family began coming to me to help them plan their own Disney vacations! They saw my passion and how we always made the most of our trips and got the maximum amount of joy, adventure, and excitement for our money. It didn’t take long to realize helping others have the greatest vacations of their lives with Disney was my calling!

    Now, my goal is to share my expertise with others so that they may have the most magical adventures of their lives at any and all Disney destinations! You can rest assured I have the experience, knowledge and know-how to help you and your family make memories that will last a lifetime. My countless personal experiences, research, and passion for all things Disney will allow me to help you put together a Disney vacation unlike any other! No matter the time of year, Disney offers the best of everything for the whole family, and I know how to show you how to make the most of every minute!

    When you contact me to make your magical Disney vacation a reality, I will help you create the itinerary that dreams are made of by not only quoting and booking travel dates at your desired locations, but by also facilitating your airport transfers; dining reservations; character meals or meet and greets; appropriate attractions; must-do’s; FastPass+ information; and any and everything else you would like to make happen. Knowing the ins and outs makes all the difference when vacationing at a Disney destination.

    I have experienced the parks not only as a child, but with my own small children, teenagers, and other adults. No matter what your Disney desires may be, I can help you make those dreams come true! Again, no matter how many times you’ve been to a Disney destination, I guarantee a unique and unforgettable getaway every single time!

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have a love for all things Disney, and all the ancillary additions to the world of Disney. I also love traveling with my family to all sorts of different destinations. We have enjoyed many stays at Disney World at all tiers of Disney resorts. We just recently sailed on the fourth of four Disney Cruise ships (coincidentally, we were onboard during July 4th), and several trips to Disneyland.

    An especially memorable experience was a land & sea family vacation with my husband and all four of our children to Walt Disney World and onboard the Disney Dream during the Thanksgiving holidays. We were truly happy to sit together and count our many blessings. My husband and I are confessed nerds, and we love the new Star Wars additions coming soon to Disney. We also enjoy the brilliant Pixar movies. We have enjoyed the movies from both sources with our children for many years. We have two children on the Autism spectrum, and I am a Certified Special Needs Travel Advocate. We have experienced travel at the parks and the cruises in regards to the Disability Access Services.

    My Travel Passions Are: Disney Cruise Line (oh my gosh – Castaway Cay), Walt Disney World, Adventures by Disney, Disneyland, Universal – Orlando, River Cruising, AULANI

    Hi! My name is Brande Stotts, I’m a wife, military mother of 2 and a momma to a 4 year old.
    When our older boys were younger, our FAVORITE place on earth was Disney and Universal Studios. We would vacation there every other year, since there is always something new to do, see or ride. Our love for these 2 parks became our favorite thing to do on their Spring Break from school as a family over the years…now that they are older and gone, we still want to pass the excitement on to our little guy and our grandchildren.
    With my 20 plus years in customer service and with our obsession for these parks, I would LOVE to have the opportunity to help you plan your” Most Magical Family Vacation EVER !!

    My husband and I made our first trip to Walt Disney World in May 2001, and were instantly swept away by the Disney Magic. Since then, we have been to WDW at least once (and sometimes three times!) a year, and we can’t get enough (we even got married in Disney’s Wedding Pavilion). Our two children (the oldest’s middle name is Elias, after Walter Elias Disney) have grown up loving Disney, and we are all Annual Passholders who particularly enjoy special events like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. In addition to dozens of trips to Disney World, I have been to Disneyland, sailed on Disney Cruise Line (including the spectacular Merrytime cruises), and have visited Disneyland Paris.

    Let me use my Disney experience to help create your magical vacation!

  • Briana Collins

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Once upon a time, a little girl named Briana visited Walt Disney World at the age of 5. She was in awe of the magical place and thus, sparked an obsession that has followed her into adulthood.

    Briana is known as the “Disney Junkie” among family and friends! She simply can’t get enough of the “Paint the Night” parade at Disneyland, wishing upon a star at Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World, or the interactive dining experiences at sea on-board the Disney cruise line. The magic of Disney is almost surreal and she loves how she is taken to ‘a whole new world’ with each visit. Her passion for Disney far surpasses the resorts and people who know her are not surprised to see her adorned in princess t-shirts and Mickey Mouse purses. She now shares her passion with her 2 young children.

    Briana enjoys planning and her love for Disney comes across in her work. She is dedicated to sharing the magic and wonderment with others so they can make their own beautiful memories. “Everyone needs a little bit of Disney in their lives,” she says. “It goes a long way. And a little pixie dust doesn’t hurt either.”

  • Brittny Caldwell

    I began my love for travel after my first visit to Disney World in 2000. I have been on vacations in Europe, resorts in the Caribbean, Cruise vacations, and many visits to Disney World and Disneyland. I am an Army wife and mother of two who share in my love for travels.

    One of the best feelings is the excitement of walking through the gates at a Disney park and seeing the smiles on everyone’s face! My husband and I try to tell ourselves our Disney vacations are for our children, but we truly love the joy we feel at the parks. We often find ourselves giddy with excitement at the feeling of being kids all over again! From the character meals to the Disney resorts… it is truly magical from beginning to end. In addition to Disney Parks, my family and I have also loved our time cruising, staying at resorts in the Caribbean, and traveling in Europe.

    Becoming a Magical Vacation Planner is a dream come true for me. I love planning vacations and look forward to making vacation dreams come true for others. I will help you build your dream vacation with customized service. After all, memories made together last a lifetime!

  • Bryn Eldreth

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    To me, Disney is more than a vacation. Disney is memories, magic and dreams come true!

    My favorite thing about Disney is its ability to take me right back to my childhood. I have been visiting Disney every year (or more) of my life and the joy I get from walking onto Main Street, U.S.A never fades.

    As a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children, I have made it a priority to plan Disney vacations every year so that my children grow up with the same love of Disney that I have. Each trip is different. We have done trips that last 10 days and trips that are for a long weekend celebration. We have done trips that include everything there is to see and do, making magical memories with each new adventure and we have planned trips where we have spent days lounging at the pools relaxing and enjoying the beautiful resorts.

    I have planned vacations for families and friends, multi-generational trips, singles trips, girls trips… you name it, I have probably planned it. Each trip should be customized to the needs, wants and desires that YOU have envisioned as your perfect vacation, and with that said… I am here to make your vacation dreams come true!!

    The most exciting thing about Magical Vacation Planner is that although we are Disney enthusiasts, we are also TRAVEL enthusiasts. If you are interested in other vacations such as all-inclusive trips to Sandals/Beaches, cruises that are adults only or family friendly but not Disney, we have you covered!!

    I have been planning vacations for the past 14 years and enjoying them my entire life. Let me use my knowledge and love for travel to create magical memories for you and your loved ones.
