  • Cathy Hernandez

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    If it were up to me, I would spend every single day at Disney with my family; but since that’s not exactly how reality works, I love to live vicariously through my clients and help them plan a “practically perfect” magical vacation!

    As an Annual Passholder, I consider Magic Kingdom my “second home”. I visit Walt Disney World multiple times a year (staying both on property and off) in order to stay current on everything going on. While I definitely consider Walt Disney Word my specialty, I can also help you plan a vacation to Disneyland; or a cruise with Disney, Carnival, & Royal Caribbean; or a fabulous Universal Orlando Resort vacation, if one of those are more appealing to you. I can even help you plan a ‘once in a lifetime trip’ with Adventures by Disney or to Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii! Whatever the style or wherever the location, I can make your dream vacation happen and make it magical.

    “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”- Walt Disney

  • Cheri Watkinson

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Hi my name is Cheri! I live in Estero, FL with my husband and 2 dogs. I have always had a love and passion for travel, and Disney is one of my favorite places to go!!! One of the many reasons I love Disney is the atmosphere. It is one of the few places where you will see adults’ acting like children as Disney brings out that inner child in all of us!!! It is so awesome to see the joy and awe in a child’s face when they see Cinderella’s castle waking down Main Street for the first time!!! My husband and I are DVC owners and annual pass holders so I get to travel to Disney multiple times a year. We have been there through every season and holiday and have stayed at many of the different resorts. One of our family traditions is to go during Christmas. We love how the parks are decorated and visiting the many resorts to admire their decorations.

    I am always the one in charge of planning, making the reservations, dining plans and fastpass+ plans. Friends and coworkers have often asked about what they must do while at Disney and for any tips or tricks with getting the best rides. Helping friends and family plan their dream vacations is what led me to become a Magical Vacation Planner. I love helping people make their dream vacation a reality, and I can’t think of a better way to use my talents and what I have learned than planning a magical vacation for you. Whether you want a vacation to rest and relax or looking for adventure just sit back relax, and leave the planning to me!!!

  • Ingrid Negron

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My first visit to Walt Disney World was in the summer of 1982 with my parents, sister, little brother, grandmother, aunt and cousin when we moved to Orlando, FL from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I still remember the excitement I had when we arrived at the monorail and rode for the first time. I knew that we were closer to experiencing for the first time what my neighbors, classmates and grandmother spoke about Walt Disney World. I believe that I got my passion for Walt Disney World from my grandmother, who during her summer vacations organized tours to Walt Disney World. Thanks to my grandmother who treated us to experience the magic of Walt Disney World.

    During the years, I’ve continued to visit my favorite place and shared creating memories with my nephews, nieces and friends. Now, I have the pleasure to visit more often with my fiancé. I can’t believe we share the same passion for Walt Disney World. I guess we are a match made in heaven.

    In February of 2013 during Valentine’s Day weekend we decided that for our first date we had to do something special that we could relive every year, so we both agreed to visit our favorite place on earth, Magic Kingdom. From that day on, I knew that I had found the man of my dreams, somebody to share my life with and to be able to enjoy ourselves every time we have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World.

    By joining the Magical Vacation Planner team, it gives me the joy of planning family vacations and creating memories that will last a lifetime just like my family and I continue to do. Let the memories begin!

    Mi primera visita a Walt Disney World fue cuando tenia once años junto a mi familia cuando nos mudamos a Orlando, FL de Puerto Rico. Todavia recuerdo como si fuera hoy, la emocion que senti al llegar al monorail y montarme por la primera vez. Yo sabia que ya estaba cerca de ver de lo que por mucho tiempo estuve escuchando de mis vecinos, compañeros de escuela y mi abuela estuvieron hablando de Walt Disney World. Creo que mi pasion por Walt Disney World la herede de mi abuela paterna, quien en sus vacaciones coordinaba tours de grupos para Walt Disney World. Gracias a mi abuela que nos hizo el regalo de llevarnos a Walt Disney World para que vivieramos la experiencia de la magia de Walt Disney World.

    Con el pasar de los años, yo he continuado visitando mi lugar favorito y poder compartir con mis adorados sobrinos, hermanos y amistades. Ahora tengo el placer de visitar junto a mi futuro esposo a menudo, ya que me mude para Orlando despues de 34 años. El poder compartir junto a mis seres queridos de una experiencia inolvidable cada vez que visitamos a Walt Disney World me llena de alegria, ya que esos momentos agradables nunca se olvidan.

    Durante el fin de semana de San Valentin del 2013 mi futuro esposo y yo decidimos que nuestra primera salida seria visitar juntos un lugar que significara algo especial para ambos, Walt Disney World donde comenzariamos a crear nuestros recuerdos.

    Me llena de mucha alegria el poder ser parte del grupo de Magical Vacation Planner para poder coordinar con las familias sus vacaciones inolvidables como mi familia y yo hemos podido disfrutar.

  • Jessi Pasternak

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    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.

  • Kristin Baker

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Hi! My name is Kristin and I live in sunny Florida! I am a mother to a teenage daughter and when she was younger, we would purchase our annual passes to Disney so we could make multiple trips throughout the year and enjoy all that Orlando has to offer. Through the years, we discovered many fun things to explore, great places to eat and beautiful places to stay both at Disney and Universal. Now that she is in her teens, we continued our amusement park tradition and frequent Universal quite often!

    Aside from our amusement park fun, I am an avid cruiser. I have cruised to places such as Alaska, Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico and hope to visit the Panama Canal next year! I also enjoy venturing to all inclusive resorts and have visited Cancun, Punta Cana, and Jamaica along with a villa stay in St. John’s USVI this past July.

    Whether you want to feel like a kid again at the Disney/Universal parks, cruise the seas for your next adventure or visit an amazing all inclusive destination, I would love the chance to help you plan your dream vacation.

  • Lucinda Lewis

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hi! I’m Lucy (and for those seeking Central Florida fun, your PERSONAL ON-SITE connection to ALL things Orlando and Central Florida!) My love for Disney began on opening day in 1971 when I was just five years old! I was born in Orlando and my family went so often that not only did my Daddy nickname me “Tinkerbell,” he named our yacht Tinkerbell as well! This love for Disney grew and my first part-time job was in Tomorrowland! Fast forward to our Fairytale Wedding in May of 1999 and subsequent celebration at Disney’s Yacht Club! We just returned from our latest cruise on the Disney Dream where we celebrated 20 years of love for each (and Disney, of course). As we are locals, we raised our family with days and nights at Walt Disney World, enveloping us all in decades of Disney magic! Our daughter participated in the Walt Disney World College Program and her love of all things Disney (almost) matches my own! Our oldest son’s favorite movie as a young teen was Disney’s “Nightmare Before Christmas” which is the sole inspiration for his lifelong love of movies and animation! He graduated with a degree in Film Studies from the Los Angeles Film Institute where he currently lives and works, pursuing his dreams while working full-time at an iconic Beverly Hills hotel. The magic of Disney lives on in my family and it is my goal to share all that entails with my guests in unique and extraordinary ways!

    My travel experience is vast; in younger years I lived in Los Angeles as well as traveled abroad extensively, making me quite familiar with many Adventures by Disney destinations. My family has cruised with Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines as we love cruising! Now that my “kids” are 19, 23 and 26, my husband and I take advantage of the adult-oriented activities on Disney ships and love the Senses Spa services! Some of the best years of my life were working as a Walt Disney World Cast Member in the Entertainment Department. That’s right; I got to work with “The Big Cheese” himself, as well as all of the Disney Princesses and Mickey’s other friends throughout all four Walt Disney World parks! As a former Cast Member I helped create the most spectacular “Magical Moments”! My personal favorite is facilitating the proposal of a former student of mine at the end of the fireworks at Cinderella’s Castle, complete with PhotoPass and a special guest!

    I offer COMPLIMENTARY concierge services for ALL guests who book Central Florida packages; from greeting you at the airport to meeting you at your resort hotel or any of the Walt Disney World parks for a PERSONALLY guided tour! Whether it is that long-awaited family vacation or simply a Girls Weekend of fun, I can assist you with all of those time consuming logistical details to ensure you and your family spend your time enjoying all the “magic” Walt Disney World has to offer rather than wondering where to dine or how to maximize your time in the area. As a family we have enjoyed almost all of the Walt Disney dining locations (including Signature Dining) and I can help you plan for the best needs of your family (and budget) so you can focus on FUN! My network in Central Florida is extensive after nearly 40 years being a Central Florida resident and that translates into unique services for you and your family as I am able to use my knowledge and experience to make your trip absolutely unforgettable while you relax and savor those precious vacation moments.

    As a Walt Disney World Platinum Annual Passholder I have access to all four Walt Disney World parks, water parks and other wonderful perks! Between all-access and local network connections it is possible for me to help you plan a most incredible “Magical Vacation,” complete with your own Magical Vacation Guide! This can be as extensive (or as hands-off) as you prefer based on the needs of your family. Consider me your local Walt Disney expert! My obvious lifelong love for all things Disney can be passed on to you and your family as I steer you in your preferred directions seamlessly so all you do is check in and get ready to make the most of your “Magical Vacation”!

    Finally, as “The Big Cheese” always says… “See ya real soon!”

  • Maria Pereda

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Maria has been a Disney fan from an early age. She has visited the parks since 1971 with her family. During Maria’s college years she worked at the Disney store is San Juan, PR. During that time she had the opportunity to learn about Disney characters, movies, products, and the culture of guest service.
    Ten years ago Maria and her family moved to the Orlando area, and since she is a Pass-Holder and a Vacation Club Member; she has Disney experience beyond the theme parks experience; that is at Hotels, Value Resorts, Deluxe Villas, and Disney Cruises.
    Maria also has had the opportunity to visit Disneyland California, and taken advantage of the personalized tours such as the Walking Walt Foot Steps.  With regards to Disney Cruises; she is a Disney Cruise Gold Member; with several trips to both Alaska, and Bahamas in both The Wonder, and The Dream cruise liners.
    Maria can help families plan their vacations with great detail. She knows the ins and outs of the Disney experience (from making the reservations, planning for the best meal plan, getting Fast Passes for attractions, and creating the best shopping tour). She knows how to help her customers make the best decisions based on their needs.
    Maria is a mother and a teacher, so she knows of the needs for a family traveling with small children, and she knows about Disney attractions created mainly for adults, and how to coordinate leaving the children under the professional and safe care of Disney; while adults can enjoy for a short time on their own.
    Finally, she is fully bilingual -Spanish, English.- This fact gives the opportunity to reach more customers, provide a better service, and give confidence to those customers who do not understand English.
    To Maria this is not a job; it’s another experience Disney has made for me.

  • Marsha Stevens

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Marsha’s love for Disney started at an early age. Growing up in the mountains of Virginia, her family started going to Magic Kingdom in its early years when you still had to buy a coupon book for the rides you wanted to enjoy. Her family found Disney to be a place where there was something for everyone and tons of great memories were made over the years. In 1984, Marsha moved to Orlando and is now excited to be close to the Magic. She and her husband share a love for Disney and have passed that love on to their sons. Her husband’s dream was always to visit the ORIGINAL Disney that Walt himself saw to completion. She was able to surprise her husband (and 2 sons) for his 40th birthday with a trip to Disneyland in California. Her family has been passholders in Orlando for many years and enjoys seeing all the new and exciting attractions as they are being built and finally opened. As a passholder, she has had the opportunity to experience the parks often and learn lots of inside tricks and tips to help make a vacation magical. Her family has stayed at many of the different levels of resorts on property and has had the opportunity to dine at most of the restaurants. Marsha is an avid cruiser and has enjoyed several journeys on Disney Cruise Line including their special holiday sailings. She has been on all 4 of their current ships and is excited to share her experience in helping others find their perfect family vacation. She also has extensive experience with several of the other cruise brands including booking for her own large extended family with multiple staterooms.

    Marsha joined Magical Vacation Planner in 2017 and is thrilled to have the opportunity to let her knowledge and experiences help others plan their special Magical vacation. Marsha enjoys learning exactly what each family is looking for in their trip and takes great pleasure in helping especially the first-time Disney guests.

    Hi! I have been a huge Disney fan all my life. I can remember going as a young child with my mom for the very first time. I have passed my love of Disney along to my daughter who is now my Disney partner. We have been Annual Passholders for a few years now and enjoy being able to go when we want to.

    I am the go to person with my family and friends on what to do and where to stay at Disney. I love sharing my love of Disney with others and I can’t wait to help you plan your Disney vacation.

    By day I work in Financial Services…by night I’m Stitch, looking to plan our next wild and crazy Disney vacation with my ‘ohana!

    To say that I am a Disney “Fanatic” would be a huge understatement! As a native New Yorker who has called Florida home for the last 10+ years being less than a 2 hour drive to the Happiest Place on Earth has given me the opportunity to indulge my Disney obsession!

    As an Annual Passholder (and proud Disney Vacation Club Member) we’ve visited Walt Disney World more times than I could even begin to count, having been fortunate to stay at each resort on property at least a time or two over the years. With each visit we focus on “what’s new”…from new shows and attractions to activities that may be a bit off the popular path but are “new” to us…exploring all that Disney has to offer is always exciting!

    My passion for Disney has only grown with time. From 20 cruises with Disney Cruise Line (including my honeymoon through the Panama Canal on board the beautiful Disney Wonder…after our Fairytale Wedding at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort) to several runDisney races under my belt (the Wine & Dine Half Marathon and Castaway Cay 5K are definitely personal favorites)…and (almost) everything in between there is always something to do. Over the years we’ve been fortunate to visit Mickey’s original home at the Disneyland Resort a time or two, with a return trip (and another Disney Cruise) already booked!

    As Aladdin would say “there’s a whole new world” out there to explore…I stand ready to help make your vacation dreams come true!

I travel to Disney World at least 3 times a month! I am a frequent visitor to ALL major events that are held at Disney including attending the Food & Wine Festival since 2005!

    Hi I’m Rebecca. I’m a military wife and mother of 3. We have moved to Florida to stay for good. I have been unofficially planning Walt Disney World vacations for friends and family for many years. We have been going to Disney for more years than I can count. We are Disney Vacation Club member and Annual Pass holders and almost any weekend can find us in one park or another.

    As a family we also love cruising, having cruised Disney cruise lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines. I would be happy to book and pass on my knowledge of any cruise line and of course Disney parks.

    I look forward to talking to you and helping you to have a magical time.

  • Rebekah Crowell

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Rebekah’s love of Disney began after her first trip…at just two years old! She continued to visit Disney World with her family while growing up. The best part of all of those trips are the memories made with her parents and grandparents!

    Rebekah has been married for 16 years and now has two daughters of her own that share her love of Disney. She has recently moved to Florida so of course, annual passes were a must!

    Rebekah’s most favorite thing to do, besides visiting Disney herself, is to plan trips for others to enjoy the magic. She has an autistic daughter and enjoys helping families of children with disabilities plan their trips so that everyone enjoys their vacation to the fullest extent! Vacationing shouldn’t be stressful, so she strives to make it as easy as possible for all family types.

    Rebekah would love to add a little pixie dust to your family vacation!

    Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a love for Disney. I went about 7 times a years when I was little, and was always excited every time. Even at 28, I watch the Disney channel, get excited to go to Disney World, and even the up and coming movies that Disney is releasing. I knew when I was a kid that I wanted to work or doing something with Disney! I finally am! This is a dream come true!

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Hi! I am Sarah and I am very passionate about planning amazing and memorable vacations for ALL ages and travel groups! I grew up very fortunate with family in Florida and California so we were always making trips to Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort at least once a year! My husband and I absolutely love visiting the Disney Parks (Both Florida and California) and can’t wait to continue that tradition once we start a family!
    Growing up I had the privilege of traveling a lot with my family and those are my most treasured memories. That is why I am so passionate about making sure that everyone else can have an amazing experience on their vacations no matter where they may be going, and no matter if it is the first time traveling together or their fifth vacation that year! I believe no matter the situation each family or couple should have an unparalleled and magical vacation experience!

  • Sariela Bordner

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Sariela’s love for Disney began when she made her first trip to Magic Kingdom at the age of 5. While enrolled at the University of Central Florida she met her Prince Charming. Their mutual love for Disney brought them both to work for the Mouse. Sariela auditioned and got hired to be part of Disney Entertainment at Magic Kingdom. She enjoyed dancing in parades and shows alongside her favorite Disney characters, while her fiancé worked at The Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios. After dating 5 years they decided there was no better way to celebrate their love than by having a Disney Fairytale Wedding at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion.

    Today, Sariela is a military spouse, mother of 3 and teacher who enjoys helping others plan their magical Disney dream vacations. She enjoys performing alongside her family in local musical theater productions and together they love going on Disney Cruises and staying at the Disney Parks. After living away from Florida for 22 years, their most recent assignment has brought them back home where she is happy to be getting the chance to use her Disney Season Pass as much as possible.

    She is excited to share her expertise, knowledge and tips on the Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Line to help you plan your personalized dream vacation. She is a native of Puerto Rico and is fluent in Spanish and English.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    While I have always liked Disney, I did not fall in love until I returned when I was a teenager in 2016. Since then, I have used every excuse I can to get down to Orlando to visit my favorite place on earth. I take around four to five trips a year, so I am always exploring new parts of the parks and resorts! Which includes where to find the best Mickey shaped foods. Two of my trips every year are for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and A Very Merry Christmas Party. Two of my favorite things to collect are Minnie ears and pins. I cannot wait to get started planning vacations for others. I hope to give other families the opportunity to make some of the same great memories I have from growing up in Disney without the stress of having to plan.

    I am a wife and mother of two little princesses and one prince. I am currently a preschool teacher and adore my little munchkins at school.

    I first visited Disney when I was five years old and then not again until I was 15! I was totally in love with Disney World! When my husband and I moved to Florida 10 years ago, he had never been. We went, and instantly became Disney addicts! When we had children, we decided that they too, shall know all of the excitement and pure joy that comes from the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I am looking forward to an opportunity to help others achieve their dream Disney vacations! Disney has so much to offer in so many different aspects that there truly is something for everyone!

  • Terri Mejia

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love for Disney started when I was just a little girl living in Florida and got to ride Dumbo for the very first time! I didn’t appreciate the true magic, however, until I brought my own family years later. There is no better feeling than seeing the magic of Disney in your children’s eyes. Since then, I’ve planned over 30 vacations to Disney World, Disneyland and on the Disney Cruise Line. As an annual passholder, I’m at Disney World many times each year. I’ve stayed in most of the resorts, ate at most of the restaurants, been to the festivals at Epcot, attended all the holiday celebrations and ran several of the RunDisney races. I have planned a wide range of vacations from budget friendly, to camping, to luxury accommodations and even vacationing with a pet! I’ve also planned trips with young children, adults only, honeymoons, reunions, races, and girls only.

    The magic of Disney is something that has been a part of our family ever since our first trip. Now, all of us (including our three adult daughters) still get excited every time we go back. I love planning Disney vacations almost as much as I love taking them and I would love to plan yours!
