    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Alexandra has loved all things Disney since she was a young girl, as a parent her love and appreciation for the intricacies of a Disney Vacation has flourished. With two young children, her family began taking Disney vacations when her son was 2 years old and her daughter was 5 months old, proving Disney really is for all ages. Each year they’ve expanded their trips, stepped outside of their own boundaries even traveling to Disney properties a few times each year. Between Disney World, Disneyland, runDisney events, staying in various Disney resorts and the Disney Cruise, character dining remains one of her favorites, in particular Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom!

    The first time Alexandra’s son met Peter Pan, he stood in front of him with his mouth open, unable to speak because he was so enamored. Her daughter, a princess at heart, has experienced transformation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. These are just two memorable moments that has led her to share her knowledge, to help families experience the Disney magic and make their own special memories!
