    Jackie is a wife, mom to a spunky 7-year old little girl, high school special education teacher, and now a Magical Vacation Planner. She has always had a love for Disney, but it was re-ignited the first time she took her daughter to Disney World when she was only three. Experiencing Disney though a child’s eyes for the first time is truly magical!

    Since then, her love for Disney has exploded into planning several other trips and even the theme for her classroom. She loves planning Disney trips almost as much as she enjoys being at Disney.

    Jason’s love of Disney and cruising came about as an adult but has grown with child like enthusiasm. I have had the pleasure of visiting Disney World a great many times (Epcot is my favorite park) and have had the joy of being on a couple of Disney cruises (with more to come). Beyond Disney I love taking cruises as I typically find them to be very relaxing and low worry vacations (high yield for fun and low prices)

    “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever” -Walt Disney-

    This is one of my favorite quotes by Walt Disney, who I have been a fan of my entire life. This quote reflects everything when visiting a Disney park and that is exactly what I want to share with you!

    I didn’t get to go to Walt Disney World until I was an adult and even though I wasn’t a child, I still immediately fell in love with it. I can still even remember the very first time I saw Cinderella’s castle I literally started to tear up. The magic just grabs hold of you.

    I have two Pomeranian dogs that have Disney names. They are Pixie (short for Pixie Dust) & Fozzie the Bear. I got married in October 2014 and my husband and I decided to have our “Disneymoon” at Walt Disney World. We wanted to have an experience we would never forget for the rest of our lives and at WDW we nailed it. WDW had us taken care of and treated us right with all their services and extras like amazing customer service, extravagant resorts, delicious dining, and fun seasonal extras like Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. It was definitely the best vacation we could have wished for.

    My friends and family have been taking my advice on their Disney vacations for a couple of years now. These vacations have been everything from Disney-moons to family outings.

    I have a lot of enthusiasm, experience, and love for Disney. I hope to share that with you and enrich your plan on your magical vacation.

  • Jean-Ann Underwood

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I remember being so excited to take my first trip to Disney World when I was six years old. My family was living in south Florida at the time and we were able to go the year it opened! It was such magical and wonderful experience! I have been able to visit different times over the years as a teenager and then as a parent with my five daughters and my husband. It has been such a great experience to see Disney through their eyes and then more recently my grandson’s. We have so many wonderful family memories connected to trips to Disney World as a family and with extended family too. We have taken trips to celebrate birthdays, graduations, and just for fun. One of my favorite memories is the trip my husband surprised me with for one of our anniversaries. He had promised to take me around the world, so he took me to Epcot! He got us “passports” and we visited each country and made precious memories just the two of us for our 25th anniversary! We have stayed in different resorts, been camping and enjoyed what Disney has to offer, not just in the parks but also, the many different experiences Disney has to offer.
    I believe vacations are a special part of family memories that will last a lifetime. I enjoy planning the trips, helping with dining reservations, and helpful ideas. I loved Disney World since it opened it has always had a special place in my heart and always will!

    My love for Disney began as a child through multiple family vacations to the most magical place on earth. I remember the true joy experienced as a child and now that love and joy has flourished as I get to see the same joy and witness the true meaning of Disney magic through my own children’s eyes. There’s nothing that brings more happiness to myself then to share this magic with others. Every visit to Disney I am able to see everlasting memories that are being made with my children. Dining is one of my favorite experiences in Disney, as the character meals bring out so much love, joy and happiness in my children and myself.

Each visit is unique from the characters we meet to the meals we dine on to the hotel we stay in.
    We travel to Disney 2 or 3 times a year and try to experience something different each time. I always enjoy staying somewhere I haven’t stayed before or eating at a new restaurant or best of all a new ride.

    Jenny has visited the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida consistently since 1973. Jenny won over her high school sweetheart/ husband’s love for camping and taught him the ropes for becoming a “Disney Enthusiast” early on in marriage. Yes folks it can be done!

    After several trips to Walt Disney World, in 2007 and 2008, during the Year of a Million Dreams campaigns, Jenny and her husband lived outside of the gates of Disney World from January to April to escape the Maryland winter and to give their five children a “Year of a Million Dreams”- TWICE! She has raised her children on all things Disney from the parks to the sea! Disney Cruise Line has become a favorite with our children. Now the kids are older and they still love Disney just as much as they did when seeing their favorite characters come to life for the first time.

    The bubble of being with your family and loved ones even for just a week without life’s interruptions is what drives us all to a Disney vacation whether its Walt Disney World Resorts, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Disney’s Aulani or Adventures By Disney.

    Becoming a Magical Vacation Planner in 2010 was a dream come true. Extending concierge-like service to clients and planning a Disney vacation is like watching someone open the best present in the world over and over!

    I have been obsessed with all things Disney since I was a very young child. Growing up in Florida, my family traveled to Walt Disney World several times a year. While in high school I started dating my future husband and we discovered our mutual love for Disney. In fact, we were married at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion and had our reception at The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

    Our fairy tale continued when we had our three children. Each one experienced their first trip to Walt Disney World before they were three months old. We’ve been Disney annual passholders for more than 15 years. Our family celebrates every birthday, anniversary and holiday at Walt Disney World. It is truly our home away from home!

    This past summer we experienced our first trip to the Disneyland Resort and it was a dream come true! No matter how many times I’ve been to a Disney destination it never gets old. The excitement and the magic continue to grow for myself and my family. I know how to make memorable moments with Disney and I look forward to helping your family experience them too.

    Walt Disney World has become a home away from home for my family, and when we are not there, we are dreaming of our next Disney adventure! Many of our favorite family memories are thanks to Disney magic, which we have experienced time and time again.

    Over the years, I have enjoyed Disney from various perspectives, which have included going as a child and as part of a high school group to going with my family while pregnant and with my children at various stages from infant to preteen.

    My family has been attending annually for the past decade and are now Annual Passholders. We have stayed in Value, Moderate, and Deluxe Resorts and have most recently enjoyed traveling from Maryland to Walt Disney World with our travel trailer for ten days at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

    I love to share my excitement and passion for Disney with others and am thrilled for the opportunity to learn more about your family to help plan a customized, magical vacation just for you!

    Ever since I first walked down Main Street in Disney World as a child, I have loved the energy and magic of Disney. Helping others experience the happiness of this magic is a goal of mine.

    I have three daughters and we love traveling and experiencing new adventures. We travel to Disney annually and each time we find new restaurants, rides and experiences to make each trip unique. My family has cruised to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, visited Beaches in the Turks & Caicos, and enjoyed Universal Studios in Orlando. I look forward to trying an Alaskan cruise and visiting Disney Aulani in the next few years.

    I understand how overwhelming planning an unforgettable vacation can be in. That’s where I can help. I love planning vacations for my family and I would love to plan a vacation for yours!

    I remember my first trip to Disney seeing the castle and meeting Mickey Mouse and never wanting to let go. Then when you go back almost 15 years later and the cast members remember you it makes the trip special especially when on your Honeymoon with your husband. That is when we both knew we wanted to work for Disney after that. I worked for Disney for 5 years and knew I wanted to help make magic for every guest who came. I love to travel and help plan vacations. I want to help you have a Magical moment and time at Disney whether it is Florida, California or even a beautiful Disney cruise. I want you to come meet all my friends and family here at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Hi!!! My name is Julie Kelly and I am so excited to have this opportunity to help make dreams come true. My first Disney experience was at Walt Disney World when I was in middle school. Since then, I have been to Disney World and Disney land a total of 14 times. I loved it then and love it even more now. I have had the Disney experience as a child, an adult, and as a parent. Each time I discovered more magic and found amazing things I didn’t know about.

    The magic that is Disney is amazing, but can be overwhelming. There are hundreds of experiences that most people never learn about. There are many special events that many people learn about when it is too late. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone help you plan the most magical vacation possible?

    As an MVP, I am thrilled to be able to find the best package that will suit your magical dreams, be it as a family, a group of friends, a couple, a reunion, whatever you’d like. Let me guide you to find the best options and deals available to you. Whatever your budget, I believe you should have a magical experience. No group is too big. No group is too small.

    I look forward to this magical adventure that we will take together!

    Just thinking about Disney makes me smile. My first visit was more than three decades ago with my parents and extended family. As a child I looked forward to our family’s annual Disney trip each summer. When I became a parent I knew I wanted to create more magical memories with my son. Luckily with my son having a June birthday we have the perfect place to celebrate every year. We have been to DisneyWorld 6 times, DisneyLand once and on 4 DisneyCruises. I have become an expert on fast passes, character breakfasts, travel around the parks, the magical memories photo pass and the best surprises throughout the park. There is so much to see and dobat Disney every year the trip is unique. DisneyCruises are the best. We love the live performances, the aquaduck, kids club, first run Disney movies, and so much more. I truly love Disney and look forward to helping my clients create beautiful magical memories.

  • Julie Tausch, CMP

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Julie’s first trip to Walt Disney World was back in 1987 when she was just a little girl, flying by herself from Ohio to meet her grandparents at Orlando International Airport. Ever since that magical first trip, Julie has been in love with all things Disney and has been going back to Walt Disney World with family and friends ever since.

    She loved Disney so much that she decided to apply for the Walt Disney World College Program while working on her undergrad degree and was accepted. She spend 6 months working on the Main Entrance team at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. After moving back to Chicago to complete her degree at DePaul University, she held various positions in marketing, PR, advertising, and special events. After obtaining her CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) designation in 2012, she got a job as a meeting planner and lucky for her, the first big conference she worked on was held at the Disneyland Resort in California! She spent a week there between the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian working on a large scale conference and expo. This sparked her interest in working for Disney again, so she decided to go back to work for Disney in Orlando.

    While in Orlando, she worked in Cast Activities for a year where she helped plan amazing events for Cast Members such as the annual CROW (Canoe Races of the World) event where Cast Members race around Tom Sawyer’s Island in the Magic Kingdom in the early hours before the park opened just for bragging rights. She then went on to work in Convention Services at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for 2 years working with many Meeting Planners who hosted their conferences and meetings at the resort.

    Although Julie no longer works at Disney, she is still an Annual Passholder and visits a minimum of once a month for fun! In order to fulfill her love of planning and all things Disney, she decided to become a Magical Vacation Planner! She loves sharing her Disney knowledge and love with others and is always sharing the latest and greatest tips and tricks with friends, family, and now you!

    I have been entranced by Disney since 2008 when my husband and I first visited. Since then we have made it an annual tradition to experience Disney magic, now with two Disney-loving kids in tow. I enjoy planning trips centered around special occasions or events such as birthdays, anniversaries, festivals, holidays, or races. I especially enjoy planning itineraries with hair and outfits to match! I’ve even been dubbed the “Disney Lady” amongst my friends and family because I’m the go to person for creating detailed timelines to ensure they get the most out of their trip.

    I have visited Disney World and sailed Disney Cruise Line; my goals are to visit all the Disney parks throughout the world and participate in every runDisney race at least once. The best thing about Disney is there’s so much to see and do that no matter how many times you go you’ll have a unique and exciting experience!
