    Hi! My name is Anna Butler. I am a military wife and mother to two toddlers and another on the way. My Grandfather took me to Disney world more times than I could count when I was a child and I fell completely in love with the Magic of the Disney experience. While in college I moved to Orlando to do an internship at Disney World and I enjoyed learning the ‘behind the scenes’ part of the business. My husband and I honeymooned at Disney world and enjoyed the relaxing side to the resort. We since have taken our two toddlers and enjoyed the craziness that comes with that! My favorite memory by far was seeing my son watch the parades at the Magic Kingdom.

    Hi! I’m Dee, I was born and raised in VA. I’ve never grown up and don’t plan on it.
    Life has given me so many blessings, my husband and best friend of 30+ years, my children and their spouses, and especially my grandson.

    We have worked in the construction industry to achieve our lifestyle, and have been rewarded with traveling around the world. I couldn’t be happier with our struggles and life lessons. One that I have instilled in our kids has been, see the world. Memories are the most important thing we can give our children and grandchildren. We are here on this earth for such a short time,
    work hard, and travel harder!

They go to Disney World at least once a year. She is planning to introduce her 4 year old grandson to Disney World this November and her 3 year old grandson next summer. She and her husband have also travelled on the Disney Wonder cruise ship to the Bahamas and plan to go on more cruises. Everyone that knows her says if you want to know about a Disney trip just ask Gale.

    Hi!!! My name is Julie Kelly and I am so excited to have this opportunity to help make dreams come true. My first Disney experience was at Walt Disney World when I was in middle school. Since then, I have been to Disney World and Disney land a total of 14 times. I loved it then and love it even more now. I have had the Disney experience as a child, an adult, and as a parent. Each time I discovered more magic and found amazing things I didn’t know about.

    The magic that is Disney is amazing, but can be overwhelming. There are hundreds of experiences that most people never learn about. There are many special events that many people learn about when it is too late. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone help you plan the most magical vacation possible?

    As an MVP, I am thrilled to be able to find the best package that will suit your magical dreams, be it as a family, a group of friends, a couple, a reunion, whatever you’d like. Let me guide you to find the best options and deals available to you. Whatever your budget, I believe you should have a magical experience. No group is too big. No group is too small.

    I look forward to this magical adventure that we will take together!

    My passion for Disney began when I married my husband. In looking for wedding options, we decided that we wanted something small, yet magical. After doing some research, I found options through Disney. Our beautiful wedding at the Polynesian Resort was amazing with incredible service and we have been hooked since! I now have twin daughters and we have built Disney memories together as a family. Every trip to Disney is a mix of new and favorites when we visit, and as we leave…we start formulating our plan for our next trip!

    Traveling is an important part of connecting, and we firmly believe that the experiences we have together will last a lifetime. We enjoy trying new food and visiting new places, and we are always up for a new adventure. I hope to pass that love for traveling on to my clients. I can’t wait to help you start making your memories!

    My love of Disney began as a child, as I sang Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in my bedroom to a record on an old fashioned record player, only to grow more every Sunday night as I watched Walt introduce his show Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color. Oh, how I waited every week for Sunday night!

    After I graduated from college, I met my husband and found he had a love for all things Walt Disney too! We took a trip to Walt Disney World together, a first trip for both of us, while we were dating. There is just something magical about seeing Cinderella Castle the very first time! Then when we were planning our wedding, he decided to take me for our honeymoon.

    Fast Forward 23 years of marriage later, and 2 college age daughters; we have been to Walt Disney World over 17 times and stayed on sight for all but the first 2, and ironically both daughters have been on everyone of those 15 trips! We as a family have also been on 2 Disney Cruises and have just joined Disney Vacation Club this year at Christmas time.

    We have stayed at all levels of Disney Resorts; Value, Moderate, and Deluxe. So I am able to give a perspective of all 3 levels of stay. We also always use the Disney Dining Plan and am able to make suggestions for Dining as well.

    My youngest daughter has epilepsy, so traveling with special needs is also an area that I am familiar with.

    I’d love to help you plan your first or next Walt Disney World vacation!!

    “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” — Walt Disney.
    Do you dream of an amazing family vacation, but are overwhelmed by cost and logistics? Let me assist you in planning the experience of a lifetime! I visited Disney World for the first time as a 10 year old, then in my 20’s, again when my own daughter was 5 and many times since then. I have even experienced the magic of a Disney Land and Sea Vacation with the extended family (which was AMAZING) . Each vacation I felt that the magic could not possibly reoccur, but yet the it is always present. Disney has never disappointed in being amazing, no matter what property I stay on or what stage of life I am in. Last summer I even traveled with my daughter to Disneyland in California as a high school graduation trip, and we had as much fun as when she was little! I have also been a frequent visitor to Universal Studios, and am an expert on navigating the amazing Harry Potter portion of the park. I addition I have cruised with Royal Carribean on a variety of itineraries and can assist your family in planning an amazing cruise as well. I also am quite familiar with the luxury vacation that Sandals offers, and I even got married in the Sandals Montego Bay location.

    I believe that there is no better money spent than that spent on making quality memories with your family. Let me use my experience and enthusiasm to help you plan a magical trip! Hakunna Matatta!
