    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Once upon a time, a little girl named Briana visited Walt Disney World at the age of 5. She was in awe of the magical place and thus, sparked an obsession that has followed her into adulthood.

    Briana is known as the “Disney Junkie” among family and friends! She simply can’t get enough of the “Paint the Night” parade at Disneyland, wishing upon a star at Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World, or the interactive dining experiences at sea on-board the Disney cruise line. The magic of Disney is almost surreal and she loves how she is taken to ‘a whole new world’ with each visit. Her passion for Disney far surpasses the resorts and people who know her are not surprised to see her adorned in princess t-shirts and Mickey Mouse purses. She now shares her passion with her 2 young children.

    Briana enjoys planning and her love for Disney comes across in her work. She is dedicated to sharing the magic and wonderment with others so they can make their own beautiful memories. “Everyone needs a little bit of Disney in their lives,” she says. “It goes a long way. And a little pixie dust doesn’t hurt either.”

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    How can Charlotte help you to plan the Disney trip of your dreams?

    Charlotte is from the Atlanta area, so trips to the Disney World parks and resorts have been a part of her childhood, but she discovered the true magic of Disney traveling as an Auntie with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. Spending time with her family and sharing experiences in the Disney World and Disneyland parks and resorts has been a highlight of watching her niece and nephew grow up. Her family has also been on 2 Disney cruises.

    Charlotte is a nurse and has also been a program director, so she understands how to listen to families, how to make helpful suggestions, and how to calmly help with any distractions that may impact the magic of a Disney vacation. Charlotte also has attended continuing education meetings at Disney and can make suggestions on how a family with a person who must sit in education meetings all day can optimize Disney magic with the time that is spend with family in friends.

    Because of Charlotte’s nursing experience in taking care of children with special needs and with caring for older adults, she can offer suggestions about how each family member can experience Disney magic in his or her own way. Also, Charlotte has a food allergy as do her niece and nephew, so she can offer suggestions about how to navigate Disney and enjoy the food while being mindful of allergens.

    Charlotte has also been to the Disney Parks by herself. Going to a park as an adult without the gear that a family requires is a completely different and wonderful experience.

    Charlotte has also been on too many cruises to count on Royal Caribbean and Carnival. If you are interested in a cruise, please give her a call to discuss tips and strategies for maximizing time for fun and time for relaxation. Please see the quick summary below of Disney experiences that Charlotte is excited to share with you.

    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.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have had a life-long love of all things Disney. I have done my best to pass on this love to my nieces, nephews, and my own three children over the past 25 years. For 22 of those 25 years, we were a military family. We had the fortune to live overseas as well as in the central and southeastern United States. No matter where we were being sent, we have always tried to celebrate our moves with vacations to Disney. The best thing about those visits is even though the park seemed to be constantly changing, it always felt like we never left and we were able to relax and escape for a while.

    I am excited for the opportunity to help other families make memories that will last a lifetime wherever they choose to vacation.

  • Stephanie Fowler

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Stephanie grew up in a family that valued traveling and making memories together. Stephanie believes making memories with her family and friends is far more important than material things. For that reason she chooses to vacation with her family often. When she got married, she and her husband took their honeymoon to Walt Disney World. When their daughter was two years old, they introduced her to the magic. Over the years, they have visited Walt Disney World numerous times, experienced Disneyland and California Adventures, and cruised several times with Disney Cruise Lines. Even after numerous Disney trips, all three of them still shriek with excitement when driving by the Welcome sign at Walt Disney World, or when they first see the ship at Port Canaveral. It is difficult to choose a favorite Disney memory when the list includes watching your three year old daughter squeal with delight through an entire afternoon parade on Main Street, riding the classic It’s a Small World in Disneyland, seeing the Fireworks at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom, receiving a birthday surprise from Mickey Mouse, or watching the sunrise over the open ocean from your veranda aboard a Disney cruise.

    Stephanie and her family marked off a bucket list item last year when they were able to visit all four theme parks in Walt Disney World in one day. They were at Animal Kingdom to see the sunrise over Pandora, and watched the sunset behind Cinderella’s castle at Magic Kingdom. They walked many miles that day and visited all of their favorite attractions with the help of the FastPass + program. A few months later, Stephanie planned a completely different vacation for her best friend. For this first Disney World vacation, their family wanted more time at the resort and a more leisurely stroll through the parks.

    When planning an eight night multi-city tour of Southern California, Stephanie spent hours searching for the perfect destinations, hotels, tours, and attractions to please everyone in her family. Planning ahead and looking at all of the options is just as fun as the vacation. Stephanie wants to have all of the advanced planning done so that when she puts the suitcase in the car, there will be no more worries. She and her family have also experienced the exhilaration of packing the car and starting an unplanned vacation with only a map and some travel apps.

    Regardless of which type of vacation suits you, Stephanie can help you make the perfect plan.
    With her attention to detail, Stephanie can put together a memorable vacation. Whatever the occasion, size of group, or vacation style, Stephanie can find the perfect Disney vacation to please everyone in your group.

    I am a wife, mother, high school teacher/coach,theater performer, and a vacation planner! I have lived in Georgia my entire life, and the only place that I could think of that I would ever move out of Georgia for is Disney World! I have been married for almost 24 years and have two children: a girl aged 22, and a boy aged 20. My children and I love Disney World, and try to go at least once a year. My husband “tolerates” our addiction!
