  • Lauren Swafford

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have loved everything Disney since my first trip to Disneyworld in 2011. I have since been multiple times. I live just outside of Seattle so my location has made it easy for a few quick weekend trips to Disneyland as well. I love making Disney shirts and ears for all of my friends and family. It always adds a little something special to our trips. On my first trip to Disneyland, my mom came along with us and I have since turned her into a Disney lover as well. My favorite memory is walking in Disneyland and my mom seeing Donald Duck walk across the courtyard. She picked up my son and took off running across the courtyard to meet him. Disney truly inspires magical and memorable moments and every detail is important. I enjoy planning trips and connecting even the smallest pieces to make everything as memorable as possible. Helping to plan others families vacations makes me just as happy as planning my own vacations. It makes me feel as if I am there(almost.)

    I have assisted friends and family in planning there Disney vacations that including young children, teenagers, trips with grandparents(just bigger kids), and larger groups of 8 or more people.

  • Lisa Rall

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My first Disney experience was when I visited Disneyland in California with my parents and sister, as a child. Later, in my teen years, we visited Disney World in Florida. Those trips were the most memorable of my childhood. Fast forward a few years, and I’m a newlywed looking for a place to honeymoon. I convince my new husband that Disney World would be fun, after all it’s the “Happiest Place on Earth”. So we go, we love it, and we haven’t looked back since. It’s almost a decade later, and we’re now visiting Disney twice a year. As an annual passholder and now DVC member, I’ve experienced Disney during the seasons and it’s many festivals, I’ve stayed at many of the resorts, and I have enjoyed nearly all of it’s restaurants through the Disney Dining program. I’ve become the go to Disney “expert” amongst my family and friends and I truly enjoy sharing that knowledge. Please allow me to help you plan your next Disney adventure, whether it’s your first visit or you’re a seasoned veteran, like me.

  • Lonette Piefer

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Like so many others, my Disney story is one of family. My love of all things Disney began on yearly trips to Disneyland with my grandfather. The addiction that started as a child heavily influenced the choice of Disneyland for me and my husband’s honeymoon almost 30 years ago. My kids both started their addictions as small children, but on the opposite coast. They have both been to Disney World dozens of times and even in their 20’s, the question “Again?” never even comes up when we start talking about our next trip.

    The love of Disney continued on with my daughter taking part in the Disney College Program and my son celebrating both his high school and college graduation with trips to our “Happy Place”. Our family story came full circle to the west coast when my son and daughter-in-law took their own honeymoon. Of course they had to put their own spin on things by making their west coast adventure one on the Alaska Cruise on the Disney Magic (the same cruise we had taken for his high school graduation). Our family Disney story also moved to another generation with a special needs granddaughter. Because of her I learned a lot about working with Disney Cast Members to make the magic happen even with her extraordinary situation.

    After several years of being the unofficial “go-to” Disney planner for friends and family, I’ve decided to share the magic with a broader audience. Let me use my experiences on both coasts, in multiple Disney resorts, and on the open sea to help you plan your next vacation. From booking the perfect resort hotel to making dining reservations and selecting Fast Passes, let me help you make planning the trip almost as much fun as the trip itself.

  • Lori May

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have been going to Disney since I was a kid. My parents never thought a few family vacations to Disney would turn into a lifetime passion for me. I took my husband, David, for the first time shortly after we became engaged and he fell in love with Disney as much as me. My three children, James, Andrew, and Christopher, have the same love for Disney as we do. Christopher has been going since he was three months old. James is our oldest and doesn’t always travel with us but Andrew and Christopher still love going to Disney.

    We became Disney Vacation Club members in 2002 and haven’t stopped going since then. We have also been on several Disney Cruises. Dave and I will be platinum Castaway Club members in August after our tenth cruise. Andrew and Christopher will be gold after their next cruise.

    My friends call me a Disney nut and all know that my dream retirement job is to work for Disney. My friends also come to me to help plan their trips. I love helping them and hearing all about the trips afterwards.

    I LOVE all things Disney! I’ve been to Walt Disney World over 20 times. Most of those visits included UCA Allstar Cheerleading Competition that my daughter competed in at Hollywood Studios and Wide World of Sports. My kids are older now and still reference those trips when they talk about wonderful childhood memories. Christmas 2017 we purchased a cruise for their gift. They were very excited, but even more so that we will also be visiting Disney after the cruise. Proof that you are never too old for Disney!

    I have been a Disney fan since I was a little girl watching Walt Disney every Sunday evening. I raised our 3 children with the same love for Disney and have now passed it on to our 8 grandchildren! I have enjoyed many wonderful trips and vacations with my family to Disneyland and DisneyWorld. I truly believe in making moments and those best moments are made in the Disney fashion. Enjoying my children’s excitement and smiles is now my grandchildren’s excitement and smiles. My favorite Disney moments of magic have been Christmas and New Years with my entire family of adult children and grandchildren in Disneyland. There is always Disney magic whenever we would go but the holidays are so very special and always warm my heart. My favorite DisneyWorld magic moments are the animals at Animal Kingdom and the way you feel that you are actually on a real safari. Now that’s Disney Magic!! My husband and I love our Disney moments and look forward to many more.

    It would give me such happiness to be able to share my Disney moments with all families and help them plan their own moments of excitement and smiles with memories that last generations.
