    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.

  • Lily Santana

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I was born in Cuba and grew up in New York City.
    I am known as a Disney nerd and have been visiting the park with my hubby for the last 35 years! I really think it has kept us young.

    As an annual pass holder, we travel frequently in different seasons of the year to always be up-to-date. Specializing in Deluxe vacations; if you are a couple, boomer, senior, or a family that appreciates the extra pampering, you’ve come to the right place.

    I believe there is no other place in the world where u will feel that you are visiting different countries (Epcot) or are on a safari (Animal Kingdom) without having to repack your luggage. All in a family-friendly atmosphere.

    Your Disney vacation can satisfy not just your silly side but also the sophisticated one as well. It’s not just for kids. The gorgeous hotels, first-class restaurants, golf, spa treatments, dessert parties, can also make it a luxurious place. Whether inland or cruise, it’s time to travel!

    Nací en Cuba y crecí en la ciudad de Nueva York. Todos me conocen como un “nerd ” de Disney y he visitado el parque con mi esposo durante los últimos 35 años! Creo que esto nos ha mantenido jóvenes.

    Con el pase anual viajamos frecuentemente en diferentes temporadas del año para estar al día. Especializo en vacaciones de lujo, si usted es una pareja, viene solo, es mayor, o una familia que simplemente aprecia lo extra, ha venido al lugar perfecto.

    Creo que no hay otro lugar en el mundo donde se sentirá que está visitando diferentes países (Epcot) o estasen un safari (Animal Kingdom) sin tener que re-hacer su equipaje.

    Le mostraré que sus vacaciones de Disney pueden satisfacer no sólo el encanto de niñez que quiere recuperar (cruceros de pirata) pero su gusto sofisticado también. Los magníficos hoteles, restaurantes de primera clase, golf, tratamientos de spa, y toques adicionales le hará a usted un gran fan tambien. Ya sea en tierra o en crucero, es hora de viajar!

  • Linda Jourdan

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Fell head over heels in LOVE with Disney when taken there on very first trip back in 1999. Has made several return trips with children, grandchildren and friends. Everyone knows me to be the Disney Queen. It isn’t a specific character I love but everything about Disney and all it represents. Have helped dozens of friends and family plan their Dream Trips and the joy of doing it makes me feel complete. Have planned trips for 2 to 20 and all were a dream making success. Goal is to one day retire to Florida and emerge myself physically and emotionally into my Disney life. I don’t even have to be looking at a map and I can get you around each one of the Disney and Universal Parks. I have them permanently in my mind.
    My greatest memories will always be seeing the joy and excitement and magic come alive in the faces of those I have helped send to Disney. My children and grandchildren are now full fledged Disney addicts and it is true, I am not a regular mom or grandma, I am a Disney mom/grandma and I couldn’t be more proud.
    If I can’t currently be living Disney every day, then I do the next best thing and I plan Disney every day. I spend a minimum of 2 hours a day keeping up to date on all the changes, adventures, and updates for Disney. I constantly monitor the calendars and park updates so my clients have nothing but the best experience.

  • Lisa Bailey

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Lisa found a deep love for Disney World at a young age when visiting family that lived nearby. Those memorable family trips taught her it is more than just a destination. Disney World is about the memories, the time together, time to “Leave today and enter the world of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy.” As soon as she had children, she had plans for them to have the special times at Disney World as she had, and she has returned each year with the family. In 2012 she fell in love with runDisney events. She returns regularly to run the runDisney events at Disney World and Disneyland. And that has become one focus on Disney trips, planning for runners to have a ‘runcation’ and families or friends can go enjoy their time in Disney World while meeting goals and dreams running their events, from their first 5k to full marathon to the 48.6 mile Dopey Challenge. She has 3 boys, one of which has Asperger’s Syndrome (Autism) so she also learned navigating the parks and allowing decompression time. She began planning trips for friends and family when they would say it was overwhelming trying to plan to help everyone enjoy Disney smoothly so they can focus on making the memories. That’s when she realized just how much she loved planning the trips for others to Disney World, Disney Cruise, runDisney events, and Disneyland. She has also stayed at the Universal resorts and loves planning for families to visit Universal.

    My love of Disney started from a young age, when my family would go camping at Fort Wilderness Campground every Easter. With my new blended family, we have been to Walt Disney World numerous times., and have stayed in almost every resort, giving me great experience in navigating all things Disney, for the littlest one to the grown-ups, proving you’re never to old for Disney. I live in Roselle Park, New Jersey and work as a Paramedic. I have planned fun-filled Disney vacations for my friends and families for many years and now looking forward to plan them for your family. Making wishes come true on any budget or any size party is my goal.

  • Lisa Milam

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love for all things Disney started back in 1983 when my parents took me to Walt Disney World for the first time. All it took was “one little spark” and I fell in love. Little did I know that the next year I would be living 15 minutes from Disneyland where my family would be annual pass holders and go to the park as often as we could. Several years later, we moved to Georgia and I have been going to Walt Disney World at least once a year ever since.

    The Disney magical “spark” has rubbed off on my husband and step-daughter as well. We are continuing my annual trip tradition by traveling to a Disney park each year. We enjoy taking the behind the stage tours and absorbing the Disney knowledge as well as trying a new restaurant each visit. Even with the amount of times I have been to Walt Disney World, I always come home with a new magical experience to share.

    My friends call me The Disney Geek because of my wealth of knowledge about Walt Disney and the legacy he has left us. I can’t imagine a world where Disney magic didn’t exist. My favorite character at Walt Disney World is Figment at EPCOT’s Journey Into Imagination Pavilion. Probably because Figment teaches you to use your imagination which is what Disney did. He had his own “one little spark of inspiration” and imagined this place where families could go have fun together and today, with help from people all over the world, his dream is a reality.

    My goal is to assist you find your “spark” of magic. Whether that be at any of the Disney parks, Universal Studios or enjoying a relaxing cruise, I will be here to assist any way I can and add that extra “spark” a magic to any trip.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
