    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hello, my name is Gabrielle!

    Disney has held a special place in my heart ever since I was a little girl. I grew up watching every Disney movie, dressing up as every Disney princess, and of course visiting the Disney parks as many times as I could. Now, being a mom of two beautiful children, I have only grown to love and appreciate Disney even more. The looks on my kid’s faces every time they experience the magic is more than any parent could ever ask for.

    Disney has provided my family and I some of our most cherished memories over the years. The level of service and dedication that Disney puts into every tiny detail of a vacation is nothing short of incredible. Now, as a Magical Vacation Planner, I plan to extend that same level of service and dedication to each and every one of my guests. With my knowledge of all the Disney parks, I can answer any question you may have about the parks, resorts, dining reservations, Fast Passes, and so much more. Whether you want me to plan every detail, or just share all my Disney knowledge to guide you through your own planning, I will be there every step of the way to make sure that you and your family have the most magical vacation filled with memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

    The magic of Disney was instilled in me at a young age. I honestly cannot remember a time when Disney wasn’t a part of my life and family! Winnie the Pooh has always been one of my favorite characters and I think it has to do with the fact that Pooh Bear’s house, “under the name of Sanders”, was my maiden name. I always felt connected to Pooh Bear and his friends and still love them today! I have traveled to Disney World many times, Disneyland, the parks in Paris, Tokyo and cruises. Every visit is an adventure and I find something new to love about Disney. Maybe it’s the way it makes you feel happy and nostalgic or maybe it’s also the ever evolving creativity the company comes up with, but it’s truly a magical place to be!

    I love to travel anywhere and everywhere besides Disney, especially cruises. I am beyond lucky to live at the beach in Charleston, South Carolina after growing up in the Northeast and every sunny day here feels like a getaway! My husband and I welcomed our 10 month old daughter in late 2018 and traveling has taken on a new meaning since she arrived! She is the best little traveler and already has one Disney cruise under her belt – watching the awe and wonder in her eyes when she met all of the characters, especially Minnie, made my mama heart burst. I can’t wait to raise her in a Disney and traveling family like I was raised in.

    Gale is a Disney fanatic. She fist went to Disney in the late 70’s when it was only the Magic Kingdom park. She and her husband introduced their 4 children to Disney in 1992. They were all hooked. She has stayed in each category of resort and has learned the ins and outs of Disney World. Each trip they take, they try at least 2 new restaurants. They go to Disney World at least once a year. She is planning to introduce her 4 year old grandson to Disney World this November and her 3 year old grandson next summer. She and her husband have also travelled on the Disney Wonder cruise ship to the Bahamas and plan to go on more cruises. Everyone that knows her says if you want to know about a Disney trip just ask Gale.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    The wonder and magic of growing up just an hour from the happiest place on earth shaped my sense of adventure and wanderlust. One of my fondest memories as a child was watching the Main Street Electrical Parade and being totally amazed at the glittering lights. Be it traveling “around the world” at Disney World’s Epcot World Showcase or setting sail on an island-hopping Caribbean cruise, travel has been a profound passion in my life. I consider myself wealthy in the memories and experiences I have collected from adventures with my family, friends, and my fiancé.
    My fiancé and I call southern Michigan home. We were recently engaged during a cruise vacation while at port in the Dominican Republic. I think we’ve spent more time planning our honeymoon then our actual wedding! By day I am an executive director for an animal welfare organization managing the care of thousands of animals annually and a dedicated team of approximately thirty employees and hundreds volunteers. I am the proud pet mom of two doggos Charlie and Jangers and three kitties Petunia, Manny, and Iru.
    With my firsthand knowledge of many of Orlando’s park and resort offerings, experience sailing the Caribbean seas, professional skills and attention to details that will elevate your vacation experience, I am your ideal MVP! Let me take the stress and time out of researching and planning your magical vacation! I can’t wait to start planning your next big adventure.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Genny has a passion for all things Disney, whether it’s visiting the parks, lounging on the cruise ships, watching Disney movies, or shopping for special Disney souvenirs to bring a bit of Disney back home.

    She experienced Walt Disney World numerous times as a child, teenager, and college student, but the real bug “bit” the first time she visited with her husband and their 4 year old daughter. She has experienced the WDW parks, resorts, restaurants, and events such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. She also has visited Disneyland (and hopes to someday visit all the other Disney parks around the globe). Cruising with Disney is one of her favorite ways to spend quality time with her family while also relaxing and visiting other parts of the world.

    Now that her daughter is a teenager, Genny has seen the parks from a parent’s perspective of all the various ages of children. She loves researching every aspect of her vacation – everything from the resort style and amenities, to the best way to hit all the family’s favorite rides in one day with the least amount of time spent in line, to the best ways to utilize the dining plan to maximize it’s value! To counteract the post-Disney trip blues as she leaves her Disney vacation, she immediately starts planning the next trip!

    She would love to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for Disney and the joy of travel! Her enthusiasm for the topic will get you pumped for your magical vacation! Let Genny help plan the perfect Disney getaway for you and your family.

I would love to make recommendations for the best restaurants, attractions, and resorts to fit your needs.

    Hi, my name is Ginger, and I have been planning Disney trips for 20 years. A trip to Disney World can certainly be magical with the right planning. Disney can be overwhelming. Planning for Disney can also be overwhelming. I have met so many people that did not sufficiently plan and their experience was less than magical. When planning a Disney trip, it’s really important to take into consideration your budget, who you are traveling with, what experiences you are hoping to have and what time of year you are planning to visit. You must also consider whether anyone in your party has food allergies, needs a wheelchair or scooter, is slightly scared of the life size characters or doesn’t like fast rides or anything that drops. There are also lots of extras to make your vacation special, like special ticketed events, private tours and outings, tea parties for your little princesses and pirate adventures for your little pirates. Over the last 20 years I have done them all and have the most special memories from each and every experience. I still visit Disney World 3-4 times a year. I stay current with the changing landscape of the parks, what promotions they have and renovations that are scheduled. I can help you plan a Disney vacation that you will cherish and you might find that you love Disney as much as I do. Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Lines set the bar for accommodating everyone, you just have to know how to plan your perfect vacation.

    In addition to Disney World, I love to travel just about everywhere. I am a meticulous planner and research everything. Similar to planning a Disney trip, when planning most vacations I research everything and plan some activities while still leaving enough free time for spontaneity. I have vacationed on many cruise lines, from the massive ships in the Caribbean to the small, intimate river cruises in Europe. If you are considering a cruise, it’s important to find the right cruise line and itinerary for your party. I would be happy to help you find the perfect cruise.

    I look forward to helping you create your next magical vacation!

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Travel has always been a passion of mine. My adventures include visiting over 80% of the United States with trips to Canada, Mexico and Jamaica. Theme parks of all types have always been a favorite destination in my travels, but I truly appreciate museums and historical sites and enjoy learning something new every day. Growing up on the Beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast, puts me in the heart of tourism and has allowed me to learn how best to help people maximize their vacation time for pure enjoyment. I didn’t have the opportunity to visit Disney as a child growing up, so I’ve been making up for lost time ever since. The challenge is making every visit as exciting as the first without making any rookie mistakes that could tarnish the memories.
