  • 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!

  • 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.
