    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My husband and I made our first trip to Walt Disney World in May 2001, and were instantly swept away by the Disney Magic. Since then, we have been to WDW at least once (and sometimes three times!) a year, and we can’t get enough (we even got married in Disney’s Wedding Pavilion). Our two children (the oldest’s middle name is Elias, after Walter Elias Disney) have grown up loving Disney, and we are all Annual Passholders who particularly enjoy special events like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. In addition to dozens of trips to Disney World, I have been to Disneyland, sailed on Disney Cruise Line (including the spectacular Merrytime cruises), and have visited Disneyland Paris.

    Let me use my Disney experience to help create your magical vacation!

    I have always loved Walt Disney World. From the time I was a little girl up until just recently. There is just something about walking into Magic Kingdom for the first time or the 100th time.

    I had the thrill of taking my 3 girls to Disney World and it is such an experience to see Disney through their eyes. To watch the faces light up is truly magical. We have been to Disney for Birthdays, Anniversaries and even long weekends. We were able to catch up with each other and laugh while having the time of our lives. When asked about vacations, people always say “you going to Disney”….I respond “YES”, because there is always something new to see. I have always helped and planned vacations for friends.

    Are you thinking about a trip to WALT DISNEY WORLD….but don’t know where to start….from were to stay, and dining and flights ???? Well, I can be the Fairy Godmother you have been looking for…as a Magical Vacation Planner, I can make you trip truly magical.

  • Jeremy Hobbs

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    The first trip I made to Walt Disney World was as an adult with my wife and, at that time, 2-year-old daughter. After that first trip, I was hooked! Since then, we have visited many other times; including a cruise on the Disney Dream. That was a cruise like only Disney could create! With each trip we went on we learned new things and fell in love with Disney even more. Recently, we became Disney Vacation Club members. This has opened up another wonderful realm of Disney.
    Our family is also huge fans of cruising. We have cruised to Bermuda and Nassau many times with Norwegian Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean. We love escaping during the cold winter months and getting a little sunshine. Cruising with children has been wonderful. Our daughter has taught me a lot about her likes and dislikes while cruising.
    I look forward to sharing what my family has learned in our travels. I look forward to sharing the insight of a Dad while at Disney. I also like to share the restaurants and foods we like as a family of vegetarians.

    Specializing in: Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Caribbean Cruise Line, traveling with children, vegetarian meals.

    We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

  • Jessica Paone

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I still remember my first trip to Walt Disney World at the age of 7, there was no better feeling than getting to experience the magic, attractions and everything Disney had to offer. I knew right after that trip that Disney would be a destination I would return to over and over again. I was so ready to go back that I set up a small little office in my parents walk in closest and started to plan our next trip and every trip to follow. Although I have traveled to many other countries and cities, I still find my way back to the magic. I also find myself to be a bit of a ‘foodie,’ I always enjoy booking different dining reservations and trying new quick services every time I go.

    With the knowledge I have gained over the years and my experiences, I’m sure I can book you a Disney experience you’ll never forget!

  • June Joseph

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    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!

    “ If you can dream it, you can do it.” ~ Walt Disney

    Hi! My name is Kelly Hilary. Disney has always been a huge part of my life. The first time I experienced Walt Disney World was when I was four years old. I can still remember the excitement of walking under the Main Street train station and then seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time! To this day I still get that magical feeling.

    My love for Disney has grown over the years. With my husband and two children we vacation as often as we can to Walt Disney World. I can say this is our absolute favorite vacation spot without a doubt. Where else could you visit different countries around the world, drop thirteen feet in an elevator, or see storm troopers and princesses all in one day?!

    By staying at the many resorts, finding exciting new venues for my children, and eating at the many delicious restaurants, I have gained a lot of knowledge over the years.

    I love planning my own vacations to Walt Disney World. I would be thrilled to help you plan your next vacation by sharing what I know, and help you make your vacation the most magical and memorable it can be!

Riannon has always dreamt of visiting her hero, Walt Disney’s first Disney park ever since she was little.

    Whenever Riannon visits a Disney park, her 4 year old self that visited Disney World for the first time comes alive again and she can be her nerdy, Disney loving self.
    She appreciates all of the happiness the Cast Members add and the magical memories they create for her that she will remember for the rest of her life. Riannon’s goal is to create magical memories for families just like the Cast Members have done for her.

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.

    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.

    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!
