Now that I have kids of my own I love taking them to Disney World and just doing anything that is Disney related. I love helping others plan for trips to Disney and I am a detail oriented planner so I am perfect as a Magical Vacation Planner. I enjoy helping others find the same magic I have on their Disney vacation.

    As a resident of the Charleston, SC area I’m blessed to have the ability to visit the Walt Disney World resort frequently. Charleston is close enough to drive to Disney yet far enough it feels like vacation. My family and I are also grateful to benefit from the very generous discounts that Disney offers military members. It’s no secret to anyone that knows me that Disney is truly my “happy place”. The cheerful cast members, impeccable grounds, sounds of laughter and an abundance of FUN is why it is my most favorite destination! From a stay in a standard room at Pop Century to the concierge level at the Grand Floridian Disney has never disappointed me. One of the best aspects of Disney is that there is always something new to discover. With roughly 25-30 trips in the past 12 years one goal is always to try something that is “new to us”. It can be a new resort (I’ve stayed in 11-12 if you include Shades of Green), a new restaurant/quick serve/cart (I’ve dined at about 70) or a new experience (I’ve enjoyed the Pirate and Pals Cruise, the Halloween and Christmas Parties, Dessert Events and Afternoon Tea! I’m thankful that no matter how much I see or do there’s always more! As a mom to three children I value the moments, memories, and the escape for a little while that a Disney vacation can offer.
    Having recently discovered that I suffer from NTPMNDV (Need to Plan My Next Disney Vacation) I believe that the best way to relieve the symptoms would be to plan vacations for as many folks as I can. Disney has so many wonderful surprises, some of which are unknown or overlooked, and I would like the opportunity to share them and my own experiences with other family’s to make their dream vacation as magical as can be.

    I’m a mother of two, that has been enjoying the magic of Disney since 1989 when my family first went to Walt Disney World. However, my love for the Disney Magic skyrocketed after my first trip to Tokyo Disneyland in 2003. This was my first international Disney vacation and it still holds a special place in my heart as my all time favorite Disney Experience.

    Since 2003, I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled to at least one Disney Park at least annually. In 2015 I placed traveling to every Disney Park on my bucket list and by August of 2016, my family and I was able to accomplish seeing all six parks around the world.

    In addition to my love of Disney, I’m an avid world traveler that has been to the Caribbean, Canada, Hawaii, China, Japan, West Africa, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany.

    It would be my pleasure to be your travel guide!

  • Vicki Freuck

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Vicki took her first trip to Walt Disney World in 2004, and has been making up for lost time ever since. She now has 31 trips logged, 4 Disney Cruises, and stayed at all but one of the Disney World resorts. She hated running until she heard about the Princess Half Marathon, and now proudly displays 11 runDisney medals, including her prized “Goofy” medal.

    Vicki is a wife and a mother to two boys. Her husband (who proposed after a carriage ride at a Disney resort) has 4 children and a grandchild, so there is always variety in the cast members on her vacations. Vicki has planned trips from solo travelers to multi-generational events, and from infants to retirees. With a background in accounting, she always has the numbers and budget in mind. Friends and family ask why she keeps going back to Disney, and her response is always about the level of service and experiences that Disney provides. Despite taking so many trips in a relatively short period of time, she still finds a new experience with each visit.

    Areas of focus: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, runDisney events, Multi-generational trip planning, Dining and Resorts, Disney on a budget
