    I have been a big fan of Disney ever since I can remember. A fond memory of mine is going to the Disney Store with my grandparents every time we went to the mall.

    I took my first vacation to Disney World upon graduating High School. It was a magical time, and I felt as if I was home. No other vacation measured up to my time at Disney World.

    My second time at Disney World exceeded the first because my husband proposed to me at Cinderella’s Wishing Well by Cinderella’s Castle. It is a story I always tell to everyone when I talk about Disney World.

    I have now rubbed my love for Disney off onto my infant son. He loves Mickey Mouse so much, it is no doubt he is my son!

    I can’t wait to start bringing the Magic I have brought to my family to other families!

    I have been entranced by Disney since 2008 when my husband and I first visited. Since then we have made it an annual tradition to experience Disney magic, now with two Disney-loving kids in tow. I enjoy planning trips centered around special occasions or events such as birthdays, anniversaries, festivals, holidays, or races. I especially enjoy planning itineraries with hair and outfits to match! I’ve even been dubbed the “Disney Lady” amongst my friends and family because I’m the go to person for creating detailed timelines to ensure they get the most out of their trip.

    I have visited Disney World and sailed Disney Cruise Line; my goals are to visit all the Disney parks throughout the world and participate in every runDisney race at least once. The best thing about Disney is there’s so much to see and do that no matter how many times you go you’ll have a unique and exciting experience!

  • Robin Cox

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Robin is known to be a Disney Maniac by her friends and family. Her love for Disney began at a young age and now she is sharing that love with her husband and two children. She and her family travel to Walt Disney World 2-3 times a year and became Disney Vacation Club Members in 2015. In addition they have been on several Disney Cruises. Her favorite time to visit the Parks is during the fall so she can attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. She has also been to the parks during the Holiday Season and has attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Robin has always dreamed of someday working in the travel industry. On every trip to Disney World she stays at a different resort to have new experiences. She considers herself somewhat of a dining expert as she and her family have eaten at numerous restaurants at Disney World and continue to try new dining experiences. Often Robin is known to drag her son along to tour the resorts for “research” and is always trying to expand her Disney Knowledge.

    Disney has helped to create so many wonderful memories for Robin and her family. She can still recall the moment when her kids walked down Main St USA in the Magic Kingdom and saw Cinderella’s castle for the first time. It is not uncommon for her to tear up during her vacations especially during the evening fireworks shows. No matter how many times she has been to Disney World she still feels like a little kid the first time she walks down Main St USA. Robin is so excited to join the team. Her goal is to apply her knowledge and passion for Disney to help create vacations that are just as magical as the vacations that she has experienced.

  • Stacey Marks

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    It’s no secret I love all things “Disney.” As a child, I looked forward to yearly trips with my family. Those happy memories grew into adulthood, when I had the opportunity to take part in three different internships at Walt Disney World during my college years.

    I now have two children of my own and they have been to Walt Disney World and The Disney Cruise more times than people believe! We have even built a trip around a Family Disney Wedding.

    I am thrilled to me able to share my experiences and help others plan their magical memories. It has always been one of my favorite things to do. I am a planner by nature and have visited Disney World just about every time of the year-with babies to tween children-grandparents included! I have stayed at almost every resort and they are each so fun in their own unique way.

    Thank you for the consideration in letting me be a part of your vacation planning.

    Areas of Focus: Walt Disney World, Traveling with kids, Traveling as a couple, Celebrations, Surprises and Disney Cruises.

  • Veronika Omole

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I’m a mother of two, that has been enjoying the magic of Disney since 1989 when my family first went to Walt Disney World. However, my love for the Disney Magic skyrocketed after my first trip to Tokyo Disneyland in 2003. This was my first international Disney vacation and it still holds a special place in my heart as my all time favorite Disney Experience.

    Since 2003, I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled to at least one Disney Park at least annually. In 2015 I placed traveling to every Disney Park on my bucket list and by August of 2016, my family and I was able to accomplish seeing all six parks around the world.

    In addition to my love of Disney, I’m an avid world traveler that has been to the Caribbean, Canada, Hawaii, China, Japan, West Africa, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany.

    It would be my pleasure to be your travel guide!
