• Alicia Stryker

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I began traveling to Walt Disney World annually with my family starting in 1980. We expanded our travels to Disneyland and Universal California in 1989. My husband and I continue the Disney tradition with our own family.

    We have three children, ranging in age from 3 to 10. Our oldest son has Autism and is happiest when experiencing the thrills of Space Mountain or Tower of Terror!

    I am an IBCCES Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP). Because of our own personal experiences, I want to help others that may be hesitant to travel due to a disability or fear.

    I have experienced Walt Disney World countless times as a child, a spouse, a school group participant, a special needs parent, and as a parent of a toddler and infant. I have also experienced the parks while pregnant, which had its own set of challenges!

    We have traveled all over the world, including 43 states and 12 countries. And I try to cruise at least once a year.

    Whether a romantic getaway or a trip with the kids, I would love to help you have a relaxing vacation without all the legwork. For me, the legwork is almost as much fun as the trip itself, so let my passion for family, travel, research and planning go to work for you!

And while my love for the Mouse is strong, my love of making memories with family and friends is what it’s all about for me. When it comes to a great vacation, planning is key; and for me, that’s (almost!) as exciting as the trip itself. That’s why I’m thrilled to help you make lasting memories with those you love!

We have visited some fabulous destinations including Disney World, Disneyland and the Caribbean. I can advise you on the best accommodations to meet your needs and budget and take the guesswork out of your planning.

    Travelling with teens, toddlers or in-betweens? What about older guests or guests with disabilities? I have experienced it all – like that year I navigated the parks while six-months pregnant, or another year that I had a broken leg! I can even help with your itinerary, including dining and attractions, so you can make the most of your vacation stay.

    Whether it’s a family vacation, a romantic getaway, group travel or a trip with friends, I’ll use my experience and expertise to plan your perfect holiday.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Becca has been in love with all things Disney since she was a little girl. While growing up, she was fortunate enough to have a mother who instilled the love for Disney magic and went on several trips a year including a Disney Cruise. Since then, Disney World has been her home away from home. Fast forward to now and Becca is a WDW Annual Passholder living her dream as a travel agent who can use her knowledge and experiences to help other families have the same magical moments she did. Some of Becca’s favorite things to do in Disney World are running all the runDisney races (the miles are worth the cute Disney medals!), strolling down Main Street with a Dole Whip, eating and drinking around the world in Epcot, playing in Andy’s backyard in Toy Story Land and eating the delicious food at Sanaa while watching the animals.

    When Becca is not planning Disney trips, she is teaching second grade (with a Disney themed classroom of course), spending time with her husband Bill and their dog Lola Belle and working on her Disney blog/Instagram account Magical Ears Traveler.

    Feel free to contact Becca today so she can help you get started on your magical vacation!

  • Becky Gentry

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love for travel began as a small child. Every year, my parents took me and my three sisters on vacation to somewhere memorable. Many of those years – sometimes more than once – the big surprise would be a trip to our favorite place: Disney World! Every time they announced we were going there, the only sound for miles around was four small girls screaming at the top of their lungs in excitement! As an adult, and after having kids of my own, I began sharing this magical tradition with them.

    Not only has my passion for all things Disney been passed on to my children, but my husband has also become a Disney super fan!

    Surprises, presents, and boundless hours of blissful research are part of each of our Disney experiences. There is always something new and exciting to do in the Disney realm! Even after years of visiting Disney, we find fresh adventures, new places to eat, hidden treasures, and endless reasons to keep coming back. In fact, we are always planning our subsequent trip to Disney on the ride home! Our next mission: Disney Cruises, Disneyland and eventually a fun-filled anniversary celebration to Aulani!

    After years of vacation planning for my own family, friends and extended family began coming to me to help them plan their own Disney vacations! They saw my passion and how we always made the most of our trips and got the maximum amount of joy, adventure, and excitement for our money. It didn’t take long to realize helping others have the greatest vacations of their lives with Disney was my calling!

    Now, my goal is to share my expertise with others so that they may have the most magical adventures of their lives at any and all Disney destinations! You can rest assured I have the experience, knowledge and know-how to help you and your family make memories that will last a lifetime. My countless personal experiences, research, and passion for all things Disney will allow me to help you put together a Disney vacation unlike any other! No matter the time of year, Disney offers the best of everything for the whole family, and I know how to show you how to make the most of every minute!

    When you contact me to make your magical Disney vacation a reality, I will help you create the itinerary that dreams are made of by not only quoting and booking travel dates at your desired locations, but by also facilitating your airport transfers; dining reservations; character meals or meet and greets; appropriate attractions; must-do’s; FastPass+ information; and any and everything else you would like to make happen. Knowing the ins and outs makes all the difference when vacationing at a Disney destination.

    I have experienced the parks not only as a child, but with my own small children, teenagers, and other adults. No matter what your Disney desires may be, I can help you make those dreams come true! Again, no matter how many times you’ve been to a Disney destination, I guarantee a unique and unforgettable getaway every single time!

    The best part about having me help you put together your Disney vacation? There is no cost to you! So, please allow me to take the stress out of planning your next adventure. Contact me today and let’s make your Disney dreams a reality! At Disney, we always love for you to “Be our guest!”

  • Briana Collins

    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.”

  • Charlotte Swint

    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.

    Growing up in Florida, frequent trips to theme parks were a given as was anything & everything around the ocean. Now as an adult, we spend a great deal of our time either at the parks or on cruises.

    As a single parent, I realize for some the planning of the vacation can feel overwhelming, I am here to help with that. Let me put the “FUN” back into the planning of your next family vacation, romantic or friend getaway or group vacation to Disney, Universal or on a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

    In the immortal words of Mickey ……(I hope to) “See You Real Soon”

  • Denise Howard

    Personal Vacation Advisor - Team Leader

    Denise or as her friends call her Disney Denise, has been traveling to Walt Disney World since 1993 and she is having a blast introducing her son to the Disney Magic.

    Denise has been planning her friends and family’s vacations for years, from Disney vacations to Cruises to All-Inclusive resorts. Denise loves helping people who have never been to Walt Disney World. She tries to make them feel less overwhelmed and tell them to just let the magic take over once you step foot into the parks. Denise loves to hear from clients when they get home telling her they can’t wait to go again.

    If you can’t find her at Walt Disney World Denise can be found on a cruise. She loves exploring the different ports and learning the local cultures.

    Denise says people always ask how she can go to the same place for vacation and not get bored; her answer is there is always something different to try or do when you go.

  • Elizabeth Caldwell

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hi! My name is Beth Caldwell. I live in southeast Georgia with my husband of nearly 20 years. I have three amazing children: a 19-year-old daughter at the University of Tennessee, a 13-year-old son, and a 2-year-old daughter. I teach elementary school and my husband drives a truck. We work hard and stay busy, but we learned early on that no matter what the cost, taking a family vacation is important. Vacationing gives us time to getaway, unwind, and enjoy being together.

    I am an avid planner who loves all things Disney. I have traveled with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, teenagers, picky-eaters, grumpy adults, etc. and still have a great time and willingly go back. I have learned to plan for everything and go with the flow at the same time. In all of my trips, I have learned to enjoy every moment because time is precious and memories are so special with those that we love.

    It is a personal goal to stay at all of the Disney resorts, and while I’m off to a great start, I have already started repeating (and going a third time to some) so it is going to take me a while. I have cruised on the Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic, and Disney Dream. The ships are vacations in and of themselves, but when you add Castaway Cay and other wonderful destinations; how can you go wrong? I haven’t ventured to the west coast just yet, but I’m already in the planning stages for my Summer, 2019 trip to Disneyland and Aulani. I am so excited! Whether it’s for a day, a weekend, a week, or a ten-day adventure with two resorts, I’m always ready to make plans and get going.

  • Hannah Johnson

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hannah likes to claim she grew up at Disney. Living less than 2 hours away as a child, many of her fond family memories involve trips to Disney, thanks to her family’s annual passes. Now that she’s grown and living in Atlanta, she goes back every chance she gets. Visiting Disney is still a family affair for Hannah and her family, so coordinating vacations that everyone will love has been a critical skill. Hannah joined Magical Vacation Planner in 2015 to help others plan their magical vacations as well!

    Whether you’re a first time guest, or a seasoned park hopper, there is always something new to see and do at Disney. Hannah is looking forward to helping you see it all!

  • Jean-Ann Underwood

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I remember being so excited to take my first trip to Disney World when I was six years old. My family was living in south Florida at the time and we were able to go the year it opened! It was such magical and wonderful experience! I have been able to visit different times over the years as a teenager and then as a parent with my five daughters and my husband. It has been such a great experience to see Disney through their eyes and then more recently my grandson’s. We have so many wonderful family memories connected to trips to Disney World as a family and with extended family too. We have taken trips to celebrate birthdays, graduations, and just for fun. One of my favorite memories is the trip my husband surprised me with for one of our anniversaries. He had promised to take me around the world, so he took me to Epcot! He got us “passports” and we visited each country and made precious memories just the two of us for our 25th anniversary! We have stayed in different resorts, been camping and enjoyed what Disney has to offer, not just in the parks but also, the many different experiences Disney has to offer.
    I believe vacations are a special part of family memories that will last a lifetime. I enjoy planning the trips, helping with dining reservations, and helpful ideas. I loved Disney World since it opened it has always had a special place in my heart and always will!

  • Margaret Spinks

    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.

  • Megan McDuffee

    I am looking forward to making your next Disney vacation an experience you will never forget! I have visited many of the Disney properties personally, including Disney World, Disney Land, and Disney Paris. I have also had the unique opportunity to experience six Disney Cruises with my family! Have any questions/desires, I can answer them or send you the right direction for a magical time.

    I personally have a son of my own and know the true feeling of the magical experience with your family. He has loved Mickey Mouse from the time he was born and that passion runs in his mother. My husband is an airline pilot, so traveling has been a common benefit of our family. Traveling with an infant? I understand the challenges presented with air travel and an infant. Feel free to ask questions or seek advice from me. Please allow me to bring to you my love and passion for Disney!

  • 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.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have been a teacher for 13 years, married 12 years, and have 3 small boys. Family time is extremely important-especially vacations! Therefore, why not travel to the “Happiest Place on Earth” with family and friends!

    I have always been a Disney fanatic and I’ve personally toured many of the hotels and became extremely educated about their grounds and facilities. I’ve toured many of the following locations such as the Swan and Dolphin , Contemporary, Bay Lake Towers, Polynesian, Grand Floridan, Fort Wilderness, Wilderness Lodge, Beach and Yacht Club, Pop Century, Wyndham Bonnet Creek, and Animal Kingdom Lodge. Every hotel has something AMAZING to offer!

    Additionally, I’m very aware of the transportation systems via monorails, buses, and boats to
    Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom and have rode most of the rides at least twice! Disney Springs is another great spot for our family and we love T-Rex, Earl of Sandwich, and the Rainforest Cafe to name a few. 🙂 Finally, I have also been to Disneyland too! It was excellent and super convenient since the parks were right across from each other.

    Although I have not been to every location offered by Disney, I have traveled to many places world wide and that knowledge is extremely beneficial. I’ve been on a Mediterranean cruise to Spain, Italy, Monaco, and France. Also, I’ve been to Hawaii, California multiple times, many northern states, skiing in Utah and Colorado twice, all through the Caribbean islands, 3 cruises to the Caribbean, Nicaragua twice (once on a mission trip). We also travel to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina two or three times a year and our family stays next to the Disney resort there. Therefore, I am very familiar with their grounds.

    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!
