    I began my love for travel after my first visit to Disney World in 2000. I have been on vacations in Europe, resorts in the Caribbean, Cruise vacations, and many visits to Disney World and Disneyland. I am an Army wife and mother of two who share in my love for travels.

    One of the best feelings is the excitement of walking through the gates at a Disney park and seeing the smiles on everyone’s face! My husband and I try to tell ourselves our Disney vacations are for our children, but we truly love the joy we feel at the parks. We often find ourselves giddy with excitement at the feeling of being kids all over again! From the character meals to the Disney resorts… it is truly magical from beginning to end. In addition to Disney Parks, my family and I have also loved our time cruising, staying at resorts in the Caribbean, and traveling in Europe.

    Becoming a Magical Vacation Planner is a dream come true for me. I love planning vacations and look forward to making vacation dreams come true for others. I will help you build your dream vacation with customized service. After all, memories made together last a lifetime!

  • Corina M. Martinez

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I am a native Texan, currently living with my son in San Antonio. Like many others, I fell in love with all things Disney when I was a little girl. I couldn’t get enough of watching “The Wonderful World of Disney”, and so excited when my parents took us to Disneyland. One of my few memories is seeing “The Jolly Roger” and “Winnie the Pooh”.

    Now as a grown up, I’ve been able to take my son to Disney World three years in a row. We’ve gone with friends and family members, but to date, the best trip was just this Spring Break. Just me and my 10 year old son, Adam. There’s nothing like walking down Main Street and seeing Cinderella’s Castle! We always start off with our favorites, “Splash Mountain” and “The Flying Dumbo” ride at Magic Kingdom. And as many times as we have been to Disney World, there are still some rides that have not been on. More of a reason to go back.

    Because of how Disney makes me feel, I love to help others plan their trips. Sharing tips, helping set a budget, suggesting restaurants or hotels. I’m always excited to help.

Enya fell in love with Disney starting a young age when her family began to take a yearly trip to Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort beginning when she was 6 years old. Her first trip to Walt Disney World in 2000 was when she decided that her dream was to work for the Walt Disney Company.

Enya knows Disney Springs like the back of her hand and would love to point you in the right direction to some delicious restaurants and some great shopping.

    Enya now resides in Texas with her husband and her baby girl. She is a Magical Vacation Planner aside from her full time job to ensure that she still gets to share the magic of Disney with others.

    Genny has a passion for all things Disney, whether it’s visiting the parks, lounging on the cruise ships, watching Disney movies, or shopping for special Disney souvenirs to bring a bit of Disney back home.

    She experienced Walt Disney World numerous times as a child, teenager, and college student, but the real bug “bit” the first time she visited with her husband and their 4 year old daughter. She has experienced the WDW parks, resorts, restaurants, and events such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. She also has visited Disneyland (and hopes to someday visit all the other Disney parks around the globe). Cruising with Disney is one of her favorite ways to spend quality time with her family while also relaxing and visiting other parts of the world.

    Now that her daughter is a teenager, Genny has seen the parks from a parent’s perspective of all the various ages of children. She loves researching every aspect of her vacation – everything from the resort style and amenities, to the best way to hit all the family’s favorite rides in one day with the least amount of time spent in line, to the best ways to utilize the dining plan to maximize it’s value! To counteract the post-Disney trip blues as she leaves her Disney vacation, she immediately starts planning the next trip!

    She would love to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for Disney and the joy of travel! Her enthusiasm for the topic will get you pumped for your magical vacation! Let Genny help plan the perfect Disney getaway for you and your family.

    Just thinking about Disney makes me smile. My first visit was more than three decades ago with my parents and extended family. As a child I looked forward to our family’s annual Disney trip each summer. When I became a parent I knew I wanted to create more magical memories with my son. Luckily with my son having a June birthday we have the perfect place to celebrate every year. We have been to DisneyWorld 6 times, DisneyLand once and on 4 DisneyCruises. I have become an expert on fast passes, character breakfasts, travel around the parks, the magical memories photo pass and the best surprises throughout the park. There is so much to see and dobat Disney every year the trip is unique. DisneyCruises are the best. We love the live performances, the aquaduck, kids club, first run Disney movies, and so much more. I truly love Disney and look forward to helping my clients create beautiful magical memories.

    Hello Disney Friends! I can’t wait to help you plan a magical vacation for your family!

    Born and raised in Dallas, Texas my love for Disney started back when I was a kid. We spent many spring breaks and summers at Disney World and Disneyland. We even got to visit Disneyland Paris one year! Out of college I was lucky enough to find a guy who has learned to love my Disney obsession. He ended up proposing to me with the help of Mickey Mouse on Main Street USA! We of course had to have a Disney-moon after our wedding. Since then we have made many trips back and forth to the “World” and have recently become AP Passholders!

    I love planning Disney vacations for my friends and family – especially making reservations for dining and fast passes! There is something magical about the experience you have in the Disney parks that you can’t find anywhere else. I hope I can share with you! If you are looking for a stress and hassle free vacation planner, look no further! I would be honored to help you have the best day ever!
