    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Aaron has been in love with Disney since a very young age, taking his first trip when he was 4 years old. Disney World has always been his home away from home, though he never had the chance to live there. Some of his favorite things to do in Disney World are: riding the Haunted Mansion, eating as much Dole Whip as he can, and making sure to track down every Disney princess before he leaves. He has decided to become a Magical Vacation Planner because he loves the magic of Disney and wants to help others experience all he has experienced.

    Outside of vacation planning, Aaron is an Elementary School Teacher (yes, with a Disney themed classroom) and actor. Each and every day, his students enter Disney World and experience as much magic as he can (without the help of Tinkerbell!) He loves teaching the future of our world and bringing them up on the values of the Walt Disney Company.

    Feel free to contact Aaron today, so that he can help assist you with your special and magical vacation!

  • Alice Bartanen Blevins

    As a single mom and lawyer, I love Disney because it offers a break from the chaos of daily life. I simply love that you can disappear into the Magic… I mean MICKEY will visit you during a dinner that you don’t have to cook!!! As a small business owner, and mom-preneur, I believe in doing what you love and loving what you do. I love Disney for always making our vacations memorable and accommodating my family’s needs without hesitation. My son has physical special needs and food allergies. I have never had to stress those differences when we are in the Parks or Resorts. Our Disney trips are a respite from those day-to-day worries for me. My personal Disney experiences range from multiple single and multi-family Disney World trips, RunDisney Girl Trips (Yes! … I have Dopey-ed) and a magical cruise experience with our extended family.

    Other than Disney, I love spending time with my tribe of family and friends. I love live music and fun dining experiences (Disney offers both of those year round!). I decided to become a Disney planner to help support my daughter’s competitive dance experience… and because I believe in the Magic of Disney and want to help everyone have magical memories to last a lifetime! I have have been blessed to “do Disney” with my kids, their aunts and uncles, my nieces and nephews, my mom and some of my closest friends. Disney, for us, is about capturing life’s fleeting moments and spending quality time together.

    I look forward to helping you have plan an amazing trip that I will be jealous of… because I’m always jealous of anyone who is hanging out with Mickey while I’m home doing the laundry:)

    It should come as no surprise that my favorite character is Sorcerer Mickey, because in my head, he’s kind of the orchestrator of the whole shebang. The first Disney movie I remember watching was Fantasia, and there he was, making sure everything happened in perfect timing, dealing with last minute surprises, and planning, calculating, and organizing to ensure the show went on! This is exactly how I approach travel: I’m your own personal Sorcerer Mickey, making the magic happen with the help of some pixie dust and a whole lot of knowledge and organization. Let’s turn your Disney Wishes into Disney Plans! I know firsthand how amazing and yet amazingly intense planning your first (or fourth or four-hundredth) Disney trip can be, and I’m here to help! I’ve developed some pretty awesome planning resources and must-dos that I’d love to share to make your vacation the best it can be!

    We visit the mouse roughly every 18 months, with a trip to Universal thrown in here and there, and we travel the north-eastern United States throughout the year. Our girls have been going since they were in utero, and we’ve experienced traveling with every age and stage of baby to toddler to kiddo to sassy 8 year old! We love trying new resorts and dining experiences, though we’ll probably always consider Port Orleans French Quarter our home, and Akershus is a non-negotiable must do! As a family with significant food allergies and sensory needs, I’ve worked closely with Disney dining and their chefs in house to make sure my girls have safe and exciting dining experiences, and Disney makes the magic happen, every single time, which is one of the reasons Disney is our ultimate travel destination.

    My family loves to joke that we keep going to Disney because I love the planning part so much, and truthfully, they’re not wrong! Obsessing over Fast Passes and dining reservations is what I do in my free time, so I’d love to free up some time for you and take care of all of the legwork to help you have the most magical vacation possible.

    Hi! My name is Alicia and I would love to help you plan an UNFORGETTABLE vacation! Whether you’re looking to head to Disney, Universal or on a cruise, I’ve done it all and would love to share my expertise with you and plan you the vacation of a lifetime!

    I’m from the Cleveland, Ohio area where I live with my husband and two little boys. We’ve traveled all over the world, but the first time taking my boys to Disney was the most magical trip we’ve ever had. Witnessing the joy and awe on their faces is something I’ll never forget! My passion is helping others make their trips just as memorable!!

    We have also frequented Universal Studios where we spend the majority of our time at Harry Potter World! If you are a Harry Potter fan like me, then this destination is a must! You will be immersed in the wizarding world and never want to leave! Cruising is also a favorite of ours. I specialize in Royal Caribbean, but can also help with Disney and the other major cruise lines.

    Vacations require a lot of planning from finding the perfect resort for your family, to character meals and dining choices, to fast passes for the hard to access rides, to ticket and park options, special events, shows and everything in between. The first time I planned our Disney trip my head was spinning. Let me take the guess work out of it! Vacations shouldn’t be stressful! I can help make it an easy and fun process! I look forward to working with you 🙂

    I began traveling to Walt Disney World annually with my family starting in 1980. We expanded our travels to Disneyland and Universal California in 1989. My husband and I continue the Disney tradition with our own family.

    We have three children, ranging in age from 3 to 10. Our oldest son has Autism and is happiest when experiencing the thrills of Space Mountain or Tower of Terror!

    I am an IBCCES Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP). Because of our own personal experiences, I want to help others that may be hesitant to travel due to a disability or fear.

    I have experienced Walt Disney World countless times as a child, a spouse, a school group participant, a special needs parent, and as a parent of a toddler and infant. I have also experienced the parks while pregnant, which had its own set of challenges!

    We have traveled all over the world, including 43 states and 12 countries. And I try to cruise at least once a year.

    Whether a romantic getaway or a trip with the kids, I would love to help you have a relaxing vacation without all the legwork. For me, the legwork is almost as much fun as the trip itself, so let my passion for family, travel, research and planning go to work for you!

    Traveling has always been a passion of mine and my family, it first began with my honeymoon to Sandals St Lucia and then grew into many more Sandals trips over the next several years and then once our family grew it turned into Beaches trip and then Disney! A vacation is not about where we are going but about the memories made while there. After helping friends and family plan trips to Sandals, Beaches and Disney I decided to step out there and join Magical Vacation Planner so I can help others. I get as much joy out of helping others plan unforgettable vacations as I do when I do for my own family!!

    Hello! I am Allison and I love all things about traveling. To me picking a destination and planning is part of the fun and excitement of the trip. I have been planning vacations for my family and friends for years and have always been told I should reach out to others to plan their trips. It is my hope that I can plan vacations for others and make them feel like like they are getting a personalized planning partner to maximize every minute of their trip and budget.

    I have been lucky enough to travel to Disney Paris with my family. Seeing the magic through my daughters eyes and experiencing this amazing trip is where my passion for planning trips to Disney began. I understand the overwhelming amount of choices you have in places to stay, things to see, and activities to do and have made it my goal to work with your individual needs to ensure you have the same magical experiences as my family did.

    Although I love magical trips to Disney I also have a passion for cruising, I have been on several different cruise lines and have seen over 16 caribbean islands. I have traveled to many destinations in Mexico including Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cabo San Lucas and Puetro Vallarta. Some of my favorite European destinations that I have visited are Belguim, Paris, London, Ireland and the Canary Islands!

    Allison has been vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort since she was five years old. Along with childhood family trips, she also traveled as part of a large group of teenagers and as a young adult with friends. Her most magical memories have come from experiencing Disney Parks with her own husband and children.

    Allison’s children have grown up vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort too, traveling as infants through their current teen years, so she’s experienced what’s involved with each of these age groups. They’ve had extended family trips with grandparents and cousins, and Allison and her husband have also snuck away without their children! Their family has stayed in all resort categories – Value, Moderate, and Deluxe – so she can help you find just the right fit for your family.

    Along with Walt Disney World Resort, her family loves sailing on Disney Cruise Line! Their favorite experience has been their “Land & Sea” vacation, where they began with a few days at Walt Disney World followed by a Very Merrytime Cruise over Thanksgiving. Disney Cruise Line is the perfect way to relax after the hustle and bustle of Walt Disney World!

    Allison’s dream is to visit every Disney Park around the world. She hopes to help sprinkle pixie dust on your family’s magical vacation to make your own Disney dreams come true!

    When not planning my next Disney vacation I love traveling, spending time with family and friends, petting all dogs I come across, and adding to my collection of coffee mugs.

  • Alyssa Hessian

    I have been going to Disney since I was very young. I instantly fell in love with Disney, seeing my dad and just how much he was able to relax and find his inner kid the moment we arrived. My dad also started my passion for planning. I love to plan! I would always plan vacations for myself and friends. In college it was common for me to price out vacations and then present the information to friends in order to convince them, we can do this! I may still do this, but now I also enjoy planning for others, it’s sort of an obsession of mine. The moment someone tells me they want to do something, I reach for my phone to find the best deal. I look forward to working with you and helping you plan the best vacation for you!

    Alyssa grew up going to Disney World once a year with her family and continued the tradition as an adult on her own. Too much time between trips to see Mickey makes her itchy and irritable! In addition to trips to Disney, she loves to travel in general, and can usually be found looking into her next vacation.

    Greetings from Central Illinois! Growing up, my family put priority on family vacations and those trips have instilled a love of travel and adventure in my life.

    My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1986 when there was just Magic Kingdom & Epcot. I fell in love with Disney and have returned there numerous times in my life. I had the opportunity to take my daughter for the first time 1 year ago and Mickey is her favorite! In 2015 I embarked on my first Disney Cruise and had completed my Disney Cruise line Grand Slam (sailing on all four ships) by 2018. While my first choice is usually Disney, I’ve also been able to experience numerous adventures across the United States and have loved each of those experiences just as well.

  • Amanda Hohf

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    One of the most vivid memories I have from my childhood was visiting Disney World for the 1st time and being told I was too short to ride Space Mountain. I was 5 and my older was 6 and she was tall enough to ride. As she walked into line, she turned and stuck her tongue out at me. Space Mountain has always been my favorite ride and it’s always my first ride.

    Since that first trip at 5, I have visited Disney World and taken Disney cruises with my family. I have become know as the “Disney Planner” in my family and have become the person that family and friends come to for Disney information. Last year, I fulfilled one of my “bucket list” dreams…joining the Disney Vacation Club.

    I look forward to sharing my love of Disney with my clients and to help them plan their dream trips.

    I grew up on Disney movies; the animated features as well as the live action films. That is where my love of Disney began. Nowadays, I can’t wait to see the next film or TV show or even read the next installment of any book series based on Disney characters. I am a true Disney fanatic.

    Since my first trip to Walt Disney World in 2004, I have become enthralled with the richness of the universes created by Disney and its affiliates. There is no better experience than walking into the Magic Kingdom and feeling like a kid again. Each Disney park has so much to offer and each experience is truely magical.

    As for my Disney World travels, I have been to the parks a total of 10 times in the past 14 years. I have traveled with groups ranging from 2-15 so coordinating for any size group is no problem. I have also traveled with toddlers, kids, tweens, teens and even grandparents so I know what attractions, events and restaurants appeal to almost any vacationer. I understand the Fast Pass+ system as well as the Disablity Access Service Pass, having used both many times over the years.

    My journey started as a small child running through the turnstiles at the Magic Kingdom tripping, falling and tumble setting towards the giant green mickey mickey that greets you every morning. Every Disney vacation day has been magical ever since! When I grew I wanted to be Goofy that water skis around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Never did I think one day I would run a half marathon around it!

    I have been an annual passholder in Orlando since approximately 2009, I have run several of the RunDisney races and visited Disneyland. I love planning trips for friends and family. Combining my love of travel and my love of Disney, I would hope travelers get to experience the excitement and the magic that comes with a great Disney vacation or cruise.

    After moving to North Carolina, Amy’s family has been able to also experience the magic of Disney at Disney’s Hilton Head Island as well as travel on the Disney Cruise Line. The dream continues as their love for all things Disney grows.

  • Amy Holbrook

    Personal Vacation Advisor- Team Leader

    Although Amy’s first Disney vacation was as an adult, from the first time she stepped foot onto Main Street USA she realized that the magic of Disney transforms any willing heart into that child they may have forgotten. As a wife, and mother of 3, she quickly found ways to make Disney affordable, and now that her children have grown up and left the nest the “Disney Trip” is still the greatest way to ensure everyone will come together as a family, even more than Christmas or Thanksgiving…nobody misses the Disney trip.

    Amy understands that Disney magic is just as abundant at the Value resorts as it is at the Moderate or Deluxe accommodations, having stayed at many resorts in each category. By experiencing as many restaurants and special events as possible; Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Christmas Party, and Run Disney, Amy found that she could make the experience even more magical for everyone. She loves planning trips and looks forward to helping you make your Disney wishes come true.

My first time at Disney was in 1993 it was my Senior Year of High School and our marching band got ask to be in the Disney Parade!!! Well we went and I was hooked!!! I have been going back ever since and our family loves it!!! I love to help people and I love helping people plan their vacations. So people would come to me and ask me to help plan the Disney vacation and I would, then I saw the opportunity to where I could help people plan their Disney vacation and other vacations so I signed up and did the interview and was able to come aboard. The reason why I love to help people plan a vacation is seeing the excitement as we plan it together and if their children know about it and they included them in the planning is seeing their faces light up as we go over things. I am hoping one day I can move to Florida and work at one of the Disney Parks, Hotels or Disney Springs. Also I love taking my Family to Disney and we always have a wonderful time and I love the atmosphere at the parks and hotels we have stayed at . Last year was the first time we took our grandson and it was awesome to see his face when he got to see Mickey and all the different charters!!!

My favorite memory by far was seeing my son watch the parades at the Magic Kingdom.

  • Anna Wildish

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I am a married mother of three young kids and a certifiable Disney fanatic! If it were socially acceptable to wear my Mickey Ears when not on vacation, I would wear them everywhere. I have traveled to both Disneyland and Disney World several times and spent many hours aboard the Disney Fantasy and Disney Wonder cruise ships. My favorite memory of Disneyland is watching my then 3-year-old son watch in awe as his favorite characters went by, all lit up, in the Paint the Night Parade. I have an addiction to the joy, amazement, and feeling of wonder you get from taking a Disney vacation. I would love to help you plan the trip of a lifetime so you can experience it for yourself.
    Navigating the parks, or even just the airport, with little ones can seem daunting. I have traveled with infants, babies, toddlers, and older kids so have tons of tips and tricks to make things as smooth as possible. And while Disney is my passion, I also have experience with all-inclusive resorts, city travel, and other theme parks. I have been a frequent traveler all my life and would love to put my expertise to work for you. Let me take on all the stress of the planning so you can go straight to the magic!

  • Annie Burnett

    Personal Travel Advisor

    A trip to Disney World was my first true vacation as a kid. It was the first time I flew on a plane and my first big trip outside of my home state of Texas! I was so excited, I remember reading the Disney booklet we got from the travel agent from front to back! I quickly fell in love with all the fun and excitement Disney had to offer. I was blessed to be able to go on several other school trips to Disney World during high school. I even got to march with my high school band in Mickey’s Main Street Electrical Parade!

    As I studied to be a nurse in college, I met a boy who also grew up going to Disney, and not long after we got married we made our first trip to Disneyland! It was so much fun getting to see where the magic all started! Since that trip to Disneyland, we have traveled extensively across North America and the Caribbean with multiple trips to Disney World squeezed in between. We now have two littles that get to come along for the ride and we can’t wait to share our love of Disney with them!

    Over the years, we have have had the privilege of staying at numerous resorts across WDW ranging from economy to deluxe resorts and also staying off property. Some of our favorite on site events outside the parks are Mickey’s Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Spirit of Aloha Luau and Dinner Show, and Cirque du Soleil!

    My work as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner can be tough (but oh so rewarding), and trips to the “Happiest Place on Earth” are often just the escape we need! For my family, travel and adventure is how we live life to the fullest! We are able to relax, reconnect, explore and have new experiences, all while creating memories to last a life time. The gift of travel and memories are truly the best gift of all!

    I would love to share my extensive Disney and general travel knowledge that I have gained over the years and help your family plan the trip of a lifetime!

    Anthony’s love for Disney started later in life. When he and his wife took their two young girls to Disney in late 1990’s, he was hooked. There is just something about being in that magical place that brings our the little child in all of us. My favorite park at Disney world is Epcot. From the World showcase to the educational rides, it never gets old. Now that my girls are grown, I still want to go back to experience the magic as often as I can.

    When Anthony is not planning magical vacations, he teaches information technology to college students. He always talks about the fun and adventure of Disney and hopes that he can help his students build a dream for their lives just like Disney does for all their guests.

    Hi! I am April Carpenter. I live in Hartford, Alabama with my wonderful husband and 3 amazing children. We love traveling and making memories through our adventures. When we are not vacationing at Disney, we love visiting the Smoky Mountains, Florida beaches, and the big city destinations like Atlanta, Biloxi and Nashville.

    I took many trips to Disney as a little girl, but nothing was more magical than seeing Disney through the eyes of my children. After that first trip with my little ones, I kept researching and planning for the many trips that followed. I love planning the little details that make a trip extra special. Even now after many trips, we still find new things to do at Disney!

    It has now become a passion of mine to create vacations for others. As a school teacher, I have always been detail oriented. Let me use my love for details to create itineraries, make reservations, and find good deals to help you have a stress free and magical vacation that your family will remember forever!

  • Ashlei Callison

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Hi! I’m Ashlei and avid planner of all things, especially travel. I took my first trip to Disney World when I was 3 and my obsession has only grown over the years. I love that feeling I get every time I walk down Main Street, the chills I get when I board a cruise ship, and the level of service that comes with all Disney products. In 2018 I was introduced to my newest obsession when my husband and I traveled to Iceland with Adventures by Disney. I’ve been traveling internationally since I was 12, but I was absolutely blown away by every detail of that trip and the Disney difference. Whatever your Disney dreams entail, I would
    love to help you make them a reality. While every Disney trip is magical, planning can make the difference in a great trip and a perfect one. If I’m not on vacation, I’m dreaming about my next one. The planning phase is *almost* as much fun for me as the actual trip. Whether you’re new to Disney or a lifetime aficionado like me, let me do the work for you. Every vacation should be as unique as you are and I’m here to help craft your vacation to meet your needs. All you have to do is show up and make memories!

  • Ashley D Johnson

    Personal Travel Advisor

    My name is Ashley Johnson, and for those of you that know me you know I love my trips to Walt Disney World. I am military wife, and momma of three amazing children from ages 3-8 years old. My family travels to WDW at least two times a year and we were recently blessed to go on a trip for 12 days. My very first trip to WDW was stressful to say the least. Everything for the trip was planned dining, fast passes and it was packed with so much to do that we didn’t get to enjoy ourselves. I will never do that again I told myself. Only to repeat the same thing with a trip that followed that very first trip. So here I am, here to help you plan a beautiful, stress free trip to WDW.

    I have traveled to WDW several times in the past three years. At this point I could tell you where every restroom is in each park, and tell you where each park has Starbucks and I can also give you my top three must do’s for your trip (budget friendly of course).

    I will offer a concierge service to help you plan a stress-free WDW vacation that your family will talk about for years to come. I have a lot of WDW knowledge and like I mentioned before I made the mistake of over planning my first trip and driving everyone crazy including myself. I want to help anyone traveling to WDW plan the most magical vacation for their family within their budget.

    I am hear to help in anyway that I can. I would love to share my passion for traveling to WDW with as many people as possible in hopes of preventing a stressful Disney trip. I can’t wait to get started on booking your trip.
