• La Sheba Canada

    Personal Travel Advisor

    My name is La Sheba and I would love to help you plan a Magical Vacation. I have been in love with Disney since a very young age. I took my first trip to Disney when I was 5 years old. Some of my best memories of visiting Disney were when I attended the luau at the Polynesian Resort. I felt like I was in Hawaii. I also enjoyed the fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom. Some of my favorite rides were/are Mine Train, Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, and Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom. My favorite place to eat while visiting the Magic Kingdom was The Beast Castle where I met “The Beast.” I enjoyed meeting the Disney Villains that one might not see regularly also.
    Why stress about planning a fabulous trip to Disney World? Let me take all of the stress out of that for you. I am a Mother of three beautiful girls and ever since I went to Disney World at the age of 5, it has become a family tradition. Once I started my own family, I knew that I wanted to share that magic with them. I love seeing their eyes light up when Mickey Mouse or any other Disney character comes into sight. I want to share that magic and pixie dust with my clients. I can create a vacation for you and your family that will have lasting, wonderful memories. The Disney experiences I had with my children made me feel like a kid again and I want to create those same experiences that will last a lifetime for you and your family.

  • Laura Aleman

    Personal Travel Advisor

    My love for Disney began when I first visited as a teenager. Since then I have visited as much as possible while instilling the love for Disney in my 3 kids. I will never forget the day my then 5 year old daughter, Kristen, got to meet The Little Mermaid, Ariel. The look one her little face was simply magical. Magic Kingdom is the first park I visited and still enjoy the magic of it all. From Main Street and all the shops and delightful smells to Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and even the classic It’s A Small World ride. Being a Registered Veterinary Nurse, I was thrilled to hear of Animal Kingdom’s opening. I have had several friends work at Animal Kingdom so I’ve had the privilege of seeing some behind scenes where most guests don’t get to go. During one of my visits, Roy Disney’s Grandson was touring while I visiting the Animal Hospital which is something I will always remember. A friend who worked there even mailed me pixie dust once to cheer me up and boy did it work. I have so many great memories and I would enjoy helping you make your Disney memories too.

  • Laura Davis

    Personal Travel Advisor

    I grew up dreaming of going to Disney World and when I finally got the chance to go, I knew I had found my new favorite vacation destination! I became an Annual Passholder and go regularly throughout the year. Every time I go I try to find something new that I haven’t done before! Some of my favorite experiences at Disney have been the Keys to the Kingdom tour and the Wild Africa Trek. I also ran my first 10k through RunDisney, and the joy of crossing the finish line in Epcot was another memorable moment. I decided to become a Magical Vacation Planner because I want to help others to have the same joyful memories I have had at Disney!

    I am also a Special Education Teacher and I teach dance classes for children! All my students know my love for Disney and regularly ask me questions or tell me about their recent trips.

    I have loved everything Disney since my first trip to Disneyworld in 2011. I have since been multiple times. I live just outside of Seattle so my location has made it easy for a few quick weekend trips to Disneyland as well. I love making Disney shirts and ears for all of my friends and family. It always adds a little something special to our trips. On my first trip to Disneyland, my mom came along with us and I have since turned her into a Disney lover as well. My favorite memory is walking in Disneyland and my mom seeing Donald Duck walk across the courtyard. She picked up my son and took off running across the courtyard to meet him. Disney truly inspires magical and memorable moments and every detail is important. I enjoy planning trips and connecting even the smallest pieces to make everything as memorable as possible. Helping to plan others families vacations makes me just as happy as planning my own vacations. It makes me feel as if I am there(almost.)

    I have assisted friends and family in planning there Disney vacations that including young children, teenagers, trips with grandparents(just bigger kids), and larger groups of 8 or more people.

Each cruise ship is filled with so many activities and different itineraries you never get bored.

    I am an avid Disney enthusiast and traveler who lives in East Tennessee. My love for Disney began at a young age. My fondest childhood memories are those of Disney trips with my parents and grandparents. As I look back on my childhood I remember all the fun times we had not only in the Disney parks, but also at the Disney Resorts. Some of my best memories are getting stuck on a boat from Magic Kingdom to Wilderness Lodge in the rain and having to try our shoes out because they were so wet. It’s not only the things that go perfectly right that make memories, but also those moments you have no control over.
    I knew as I started a family that Disney would play a special role in my children’s childhood just as it did mine. I have 3 children (10 year old boy, 5 year old girl, and 5 year old boy). We have been to Disney multiple times since their birth. I have stayed at almost every Walt Disney World Resort and I have been on 6 Disney Cruises.
    When I am not traveling or planning my next vacation, I work as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

  • Lisa Bailey

    Personal Vacation Advisor - Team Leader

    Lisa found a deep love for Disney World at a young age when visiting family that lived nearby. Those memorable family trips taught her it is more than just a destination. Disney World is about the memories, the time together, time to “Leave today and enter the world of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy.” As soon as she had children, she had plans for them to have the special times at Disney World as she had, and she has returned each year with the family. In 2012 she fell in love with runDisney events. She returns regularly to run the runDisney events at Disney World and Disneyland. And that has become one focus on Disney trips, planning for runners to have a ‘runcation’ and families or friends can go enjoy their time in Disney World while meeting goals and dreams running their events, from their first 5k to full marathon to the 48.6 mile Dopey Challenge. She has 3 boys, one of which has Asperger’s Syndrome (Autism) so she also learned navigating the parks and allowing decompression time. She began planning trips for friends and family when they would say it was overwhelming trying to plan to help everyone enjoy Disney smoothly so they can focus on making the memories. That’s when she realized just how much she loved planning the trips for others to Disney World, Disney Cruise, runDisney events, and Disneyland. She has also stayed at the Universal resorts and loves planning for families to visit Universal.

  • Lisa Cronin

    Personal Travel Advisor

    I’ve loved Disney since I was a small child and when I visited for the first time when I was 12, I knew it would always be a big part of my life. When my family and I had the opportunity to relocate to Tampa, FL from Massachusetts I was thrilled that my kids would have the opportunity to grow up so close to Walt Disney World! My Disney experience has spanned generations. From my first family trip to WDW in FL when I was 12, to living in southern California and spending time in Disneyland as a young married person in my 20s, to visiting the parks with my infant and 3 year old, to visiting the parks with my mom who is wheelchair bound, to now experiencing both Walt Disney World Resort in FL as well as Disneyland CA with my older children I have gained a knowledge of all things Disney that I never dreamed of! Since relocating, my husband and I have been helping friends and family plan their trips to visit WDW from all over the US.

    We of course love all the rids and attractions but some of our favorite experiences are off the beaten path. These include spending time at Epcot’s World Showcase while the kids are hunting down stamps for their Epcot Passports, visiting Animal Kingdom and exploring the world of Pandora at night, playing the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card game, and PIN TRADING! We also love trying new dining experiences each time we visit.

    Outside of planning vacations I am a full time General Pediatrician very active in my community providing educational opportunities for young families as well a coaching softball and t-ball for my two daughters.

    Whether you are traveling as a family with young children, older children, grandparents, or friends or family with disabilities I can help you plan a magical vacation tailored to what you’d like to experience during your time at Walt Disney world!

    Personal Travel Advisor

    Hi there, I am Lisa and I would love to help you have the most Magical vacation possible! I live in Northern California and I am a complete Disney fan. I can honestly say that most of my favorite memories are from adventures in Disney!

    When I was a small child my parents instilled the love of Disney in me, and I was even lucky enough to marry a man who enjoys it as much as I do! We have raised two Disney-loving boys and have been fortunate enough to stay in all three Disney properties in Disneyland, a couple in Disney World, as well as many of the Good Neighbor properties. We have taken several of the special tours, visited the parks over many holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, eaten in most of the themed restaurants including Character Dining experiences, and have even enjoyed a fabulous evening in Club 33! To me there is nothing quite like the feeling of walking down Main Street towards Pirates of the Caribbean (always our first and last ride) at the beginning of a visit, and I am never ready to leave!

    No matter where I travel to, I completely enjoy the planning phase, the small details and the surprises I can line up for those traveling with me. I would love to do the same for you and your loved ones, whether you are heading to a Disney park or a sandy beach!

    Areas of focus: Disneyland, Multi-generation & Group trips, Guests with disabilities, Celebrations, Dining and the special moments!

    My first Disney experience was when I visited Disneyland in California with my parents and sister, as a child. Later, in my teen years, we visited Disney World in Florida. Those trips were the most memorable of my childhood. Fast forward a few years, and I’m a newlywed looking for a place to honeymoon. I convince my new husband that Disney World would be fun, after all it’s the “Happiest Place on Earth”. So we go, we love it, and we haven’t looked back since. It’s almost a decade later, and we’re now visiting Disney twice a year. As an annual passholder and now DVC member, I’ve experienced Disney during the seasons and it’s many festivals, I’ve stayed at many of the resorts, and I have enjoyed nearly all of it’s restaurants through the Disney Dining program. I’ve become the go to Disney “expert” amongst my family and friends and I truly enjoy sharing that knowledge. Please allow me to help you plan your next Disney adventure, whether it’s your first visit or you’re a seasoned veteran, like me.

    Like so many others, my Disney story is one of family. My love of all things Disney began on yearly trips to Disneyland with my grandfather. The addiction that started as a child heavily influenced the choice of Disneyland for me and my husband’s honeymoon almost 30 years ago. My kids both started their addictions as small children, but on the opposite coast. They have both been to Disney World dozens of times and even in their 20’s, the question “Again?” never even comes up when we start talking about our next trip.

    The love of Disney continued on with my daughter taking part in the Disney College Program and my son celebrating both his high school and college graduation with trips to our “Happy Place”. Our family story came full circle to the west coast when my son and daughter-in-law took their own honeymoon. Of course they had to put their own spin on things by making their west coast adventure one on the Alaska Cruise on the Disney Magic (the same cruise we had taken for his high school graduation). Our family Disney story also moved to another generation with a special needs granddaughter. Because of her I learned a lot about working with Disney Cast Members to make the magic happen even with her extraordinary situation.

    After several years of being the unofficial “go-to” Disney planner for friends and family, I’ve decided to share the magic with a broader audience. Let me use my experiences on both coasts, in multiple Disney resorts, and on the open sea to help you plan your next vacation. From booking the perfect resort hotel to making dining reservations and selecting Fast Passes, let me help you make planning the trip almost as much fun as the trip itself.

    If you gave someone $1000 cash and asked them a year later what they spent it on, what would they tell you? Most likely they would not remember.

    If you spent the same $1000 on a vacation for that same person, and asked them a year later about their vacation, what would they tell you? They would tell you details of the memories they made on that vacation. They would tell you about the the fun things they did, the variety of restaurants they visited, the people they met, and the wonderful place they stayed. Making memories is magical. They last a lifetime.

    I have traveled to Disneyland, Walt Disney World and many other places throughout the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. Disneyland was a staple in my childhood. Dole Whips, Mickey Ears, parades and rides were larger than life when I was a young child. When I visit Disneyland or Walt Disney World with my sons, I still feel like the 5 year old girl that just got her first set of Mickey Ears, but now, I can experience it with my kids and make our own memories.

    I can help you make memories too!

    I have been going to Disney since I was a kid. My parents never thought a few family vacations to Disney would turn into a lifetime passion for me. I took my husband, David, for the first time shortly after we became engaged and he fell in love with Disney as much as me. My three children, James, Andrew, and Christopher, have the same love for Disney as we do. Christopher has been going since he was three months old. James is our oldest and doesn’t always travel with us but Andrew and Christopher still love going to Disney.

    We became Disney Vacation Club members in 2002 and haven’t stopped going since then. We have also been on several Disney Cruises. Dave and I will be platinum Castaway Club members in August after our tenth cruise. Andrew and Christopher will be gold after their next cruise.

    My friends call me a Disney nut and all know that my dream retirement job is to work for Disney. My friends also come to me to help plan their trips. I love helping them and hearing all about the trips afterwards.

    I LOVE all things Disney! I’ve been to Walt Disney World over 20 times. Most of those visits included UCA Allstar Cheerleading Competition that my daughter competed in at Hollywood Studios and Wide World of Sports. My kids are older now and still reference those trips when they talk about wonderful childhood memories. Christmas 2017 we purchased a cruise for their gift. They were very excited, but even more so that we will also be visiting Disney after the cruise. Proof that you are never too old for Disney!

    Hello! Whether it’s your first or fiftieth trip to Disney, you will love how I use my knowledge and experience to design outstanding itineraries for people of all ages and any group size to make the most of your time and dollars that ensure your trip is as stress free and Magical as possible! Why wouldn’t you utilize my talents when there’s no additional fee?! It’s Magic!! (Not really! It’s my hard work and dedication to you that makes it seem so!)

    I must say, if it weren’t for my sister and bro-in-law(they are parents to my lovely niece now 10)being Disney Vacation Club Owners, inviting me along on their many trips to Disney World for the past eight years, I would have continued to think of Disney as only Magic Kingdom. My husband and I had taken our 4 children to MK a couple times when they were young and thought that was it. Well, I now know that Disney is so much more! Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, Disneyland, and resorts like Aulani in Hawaii are amazingly magical!

    We’ve taken our now adult children several times and I can tell you that going as adults is quite possibly more fun than when they were kids! My husband & I enjoy Disney just the two of us as well, and we have so much fun. I’ve stayed at many of the resorts and can share the best times to visit too. I really know my way around the Parks, the Epcot Festivals and special ticket celebrations like Mickey’s Christmas, FastPasses, Character meet ‘n greets, and I’ve sailed on the Disney Fantasy. Being quite a foodie & wine connoisseur, I am familiar with Dining Plans, the many quick service and table service restaurants, in and around the Parks.

    Magically, you won’t ever wonder what to do next or when to do it when you have my personally designed, stress-less, itinerary for your dream vacation because, “Dreams Really Do Come True”!

    I have been a Disney fan since I was a little girl watching Walt Disney every Sunday evening. I raised our 3 children with the same love for Disney and have now passed it on to our 8 grandchildren! I have enjoyed many wonderful trips and vacations with my family to Disneyland and DisneyWorld. I truly believe in making moments and those best moments are made in the Disney fashion. Enjoying my children’s excitement and smiles is now my grandchildren’s excitement and smiles. My favorite Disney moments of magic have been Christmas and New Years with my entire family of adult children and grandchildren in Disneyland. There is always Disney magic whenever we would go but the holidays are so very special and always warm my heart. My favorite DisneyWorld magic moments are the animals at Animal Kingdom and the way you feel that you are actually on a real safari. Now that’s Disney Magic!! My husband and I love our Disney moments and look forward to many more.

    It would give me such happiness to be able to share my Disney moments with all families and help them plan their own moments of excitement and smiles with memories that last generations.

    I will specialize in Disneyland/California Adventire,DisneyWorld, Disney Cruises, Disney Aulani, large groups, family reunions, dining suggestions, concierge levels, sports groups, honeymoons, Disney parents get-away, and especially kids of all ages including us fun grandparents!!

    I have experience in traveling with infants to toddlers to teenagers and can plan wonderful accommodations for them. Let my experiences help you enjoy your own Magical Disney moments!!!
