    Corrine’s addiction to all things Disney started at the age of 10 with her first family vacation. After that first trip she was hooked! For the past 10 years now she has been planning trips for her own family of 5. When she is not talking about and planning her own trip, she enjoys helping friends & family plan their trips.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful princesses who are in love with Disney as much as I am. I have been travelling throughout this beautiful country since I was a little girl, but my greatest memories have been of my many trips to Disney World and Disney Cruises to the Caribbean. Each experience has been unique from being a small child experiencing the Magic Kingdom for the first time to a mother watching my little girl have that same experience. I can even say that I visited Epcot for its grand opening back in 1982. My husband and I say that we will be taking Disney vacations well into our retirement years. Especially, since we have discovered the perfect vacation that Disney Cruise Line offers.
    I joined Magical Vacation Planner in 2015. I love planning Disney vacations especially to first time visitors. My many experiences at Disney World and on Disney Cruise Line can help make your vacation full of magical memories. Disney is the one vacation for all ages. I am also excited to say I have been expanding my knowledge and love of vacation planning by also adding Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Universal Studios, and Sandals/Beaches Resorts to my area of expertise. I love helping people plan a memorable vacation with their loved ones that they will be talking about for years to come.

  • Heather Thomas

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hello. I’m Heather, a small-town girl form western PA with a big-time love of all things Disney! My love of Disney started when I went to Disney world for the first time as a young teenager with my family. I was in absolute amazement at the sights, sounds, and adventures we experienced on our first trip. I have since traveled to Walt Disney World many times, including my honeymoon. Although some couples may not even consider a Disney Honeymoon, I cannot imagine a better place to go. We were treated like a princess and her prince in true Disney fashion and had as much fun as we always do on a Disney vacation. We have been back several times with our 9 year old daughter who loves it just as much as us. I’ve had the opportunity to stay at different resorts and experience several holiday seasons in Magic Kingdom. We stayed at Art of Animation the week that it opened and enjoyed the unique atmosphere and amenities at Animal Kingdom Lodge-Kidoni Village a few years ago. There is nothing like hearing music while you swim under water or waking up to the sight of a giraffe! One thing that I find to be different about Walt Disney World that any other resort or destination is that even dining is an experience and it can be included in your package when you book. One of our favorite places to go for dinner is O’Hana in The Polynesian. The food is delicious, the entertainment outstanding , and if you are lucky you may even catch the nightly fireworks while you enjoy your dessert. My husband and I also spent few days at Disneyland in California. Although a very different destination than Walt Deny World, I feel that anyone with a passion for Disney and desire to travel somewhere different should plan a Disneyland trip for sure. The memories you an your family make there will be just as magical! I have been helping friends and family book their magical vacations for a long time and am very excited at the opportunity to help even more clients here at Magical Vacation Planner.

  • Robin Winemiller

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    As a child my family never vacationed anywhere or did anything as a family so when I grew up, got married and had a family of my own I knew I wanted it to be different. I wanted my 2 daughters to be able to look back on their childhoods and tell their children about all the happy memories they had and hopefully pay it forward for many years to come. My love for Disney came latre in life. I didn’t get to experience the magic of Walt Disney World until 2007 when my husband and I and our 2 daughters took our first trip. That very first step onto Main Street and seeing Cinderella’s Castle was unforgettable, not to mention seeing the smiles on my daughters faces was priceless. Of course that very first trip was exhausting because we tried to see all and do all not knowing that we had caught “Disney Fever!” Fast forward 10 years and about 9 trips to Disney World and a Disney Cruise later and here we are today with a lifetime of memories made, with many more to come. Of course I still have a Disney “Bucket List” of my own which includes visiting Disney Land, Aulani , taking an Adventures by Disney trip and spending more time on those beautiful Disney Cruise ships. Being Annual Passholder’s and Disney Vacation Club owners, we have guaranteed our family endless possibilities of making that next Disney dream come true.
    Walt’s famous words to live by, “If you can dream it, you can do it” are truly an inspiration. I love to help family and friends with recommendations and tips on planning that Disney dream vacation and helping to make those sought after memories that last a lifetime! Every clients wants and needs are unique and I would love to help spread the Disney Magic as much as possible. Disney definitely has something for everyone and I would like nothing more then to spread the Pixie Dust whether it be a day at the parks, a broad way style show or that special dinning reservation. Whether it be your 1st trip or your 100th, Disney always has something new to experience. But I must warn you that Disney Fever is contagious !!
