• Amanda Ochs

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My name is Amanda Ochs, and I live in Southern Indiana.
    My love of Disney came from an early age when my parents took my sister and I on vacation to Florida every summer splitting the time between the beach and Disney. Disney being my favorite!
    When I was just 1, I went to Disney for the first time. Since then I have returned to the happiest place on earth a little over 20 times. For the last 11 years, I’ve got to experience Disney through the eyes of my youngest niece and nephew, from character dining, trick or treating at the Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and tea at the Grand Floridian. I always feel this overwhelming sense of home when I walk down Main Street.
    I have experienced the Fourth of July, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Birthdays, Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party and lots of magical parades and fireworks at Disney.
    I enjoy sharing my Disney experiences with others and would love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for Disney with you! With the many trips to Disney that I’ve had, let me offer you great recommendations for Disney resorts, dining, attractions, and much more and get you started on your dream vacation today!

  • Caitlin Smerdel

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I fell in love with Walt Disney World when I was just 8 years old. Little did I know that when I stepped onto Main Street that my entire future was being shaped. Magical, right? After numerous visits later, I attended Purdue University to earn my degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management to turn my home away from home into my lifelong career. I completed the Disney College Program in 2009 working at Disney’s All Star Music Resort and the love that I thought couldn’t get any larger grew to an infinite amount. My experiences span from Walt Disney World to Disneyland, Disney’s Beach Resorts to Disney Cruise Lines, Disney marathons to Disney Water Parks – I just can’t get enough!

    If you’re looking for a seamless, wonderfully magical, life changing, purely authentic Disney vacation, look no further! My love for Disney paired with my detailed planning, expertise and hospitality background will set you up for the trip of a lifetime…and many more!

  • Elizabeth Hippensteel

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I began visiting Walt Disney World regularly starting in 2007 when my daughter was four years old. Our love and appreciation for Disney vacations has grown and expanded since then. With more than 25 visits to Walt Disney World since then, my family and I have learned to love the mouse and his house! Our enjoyment of Disney holidays has expanded with trips to Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris. Most recently we were fortunate enough to visit Disney Aulani on the beautiful island of Oahu!

    One of the regular questions I get from family and friends is “Aren’t you bored of going there AGAIN”? The answer is always “No” because we have found new and exciting events and opportunities with each trip that really make them unique and different each time we visit. We love visiting during the Halloween and Christmas holidays and taking advantage of the other special Disney bonuses such as the Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festivals at Epcot. My husband and I also take a weekend each year to enjoy the parks without my daughter so we can enjoy the Disney experience in a new way.

    Whether it’s your first time visiting Disney with young children or your 20th time, I would love to help you create a magical experience that you will remember forever!

  • Erin Edwards

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    In 1992, I was riveted to the silver screen while an Arabian street rat, named Aladdin, serenaded Princess Jasmine on a Magic Carpet ride. I wanted to see this Whole New World that Aladdin sang about. I was captivated by the ‘fantastic point of view’ and the ‘dazzling place I never knew’. I didn’t know what or where that place was as an 8 year old little girl, but as an adult, I’ve learned just how thrilling it can be to travel this ‘Whole New World’ we live in.

    I am passionate about traveling and thoroughly enjoy the planning stage of every trip, whether it’s a romantic weekend getaway, jet setting to a business meeting, a family vacation, or a multi-generational group trip. I have traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida more than 15 times in the last 10 years and specialize in all Disney Destinations.

    I look forward to assisting you and your family as you explore a whole new world.

  • Erin Sparkman

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love of Disney began when I was 4 years old. My Dad didn’t get to travel as a child and he wanted to make sure that my sisters and were able to experience travelling. Like many kids, I grew up watching Disney movies. So at 4 years old, my parents decided to take me to Walt Disney World in Florida. I was immediately hooked! We travelled there several times and at 20 years old, a friend and I packed up and moved to Florida to work at Disney World. Now as a parent and wife, I want my 3 children and husband to love Disney as much as I always have. We go to Disney World every year. I’ve gone a few times without the kids on girls trips to run a 5k or celebrate a special occasion. With or without the kids, I always have fun.
    Being a Magical Vacation Planner is so exciting for me. I cannot wait to share my love of Disney with other people and help to make their vacation an amazing experience.

  • Kristy Ebelhar

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Kristy’s love of Disney started as an almost 2 year old when she went through the Small World ride and was absolutely smitten with all the ‘babies’ on the ride. Fast forward many years (and trips) later and she got to experience almost the exact memory with her 2 year old daughter. Some of Kristy’s biggest milestones in life thus far have been experienced with the magic of Walt Disney World, she and her husband got engaged and honeymooned there, and have dubbed Disney their, “Happy Place”. As soon as they leave they start planning their next trip.

    Kristy is excited to help families start planning their memories. When you enter Disney World you truly are stepping away from reality and experiencing something that is hard to even put words to. It’s an unforgettable adventure that adults and children cherish and remember in the years to come.

    Although Disney is my first passion, I also can help plan vacations to Sandals/Beaches, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Universal. I love to travel and it’s a great joy to help others plan their vacations and live vicariously through their experiences. Each trip is unique and special and deserves it’s own set of unique plans!

  • Sabrina Cramer

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Seeing Disney for this first time is unlike anything I had ever experienced on a vacation. My first Magical Disney experience was in 2012. I got to witness the magic of Disney with my 5 year old son. There is nothing like seeing the Castle or hearing the whistle of the train. Seeing the look on my sons face meeting Mickey for the first time is something I’ll never forget. My son and I have visited every year since 2012. Every time we go, we experience something new and Magical. In 2016 I surprised my son with a special birthday trip to Disney. We attended the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for his 9th Birthday. The memories of that special trip and the gleam in his eyes was one of the best feelings this Momma ever has ever felt.
    I love sharing our pictures and stories with friends and family. Being able to help someone with Disney Magic is one of the most amazing things. By helping another person see the look on their child’s face the first time they see Mickey, or a couple that is getting engaged in front of the castle, or helping plan a special anniversary trip is the most rewarding feeling. The Magical thing about Disney is there is something new to see every time you visit. I still tear up seeing the Castle for the first time and last time.
