• Alice Bartanen Blevins

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    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:)

    My name is Amanda Ochs, and I live in Southern Indiana.
    My love of Disney came from an early age when my parents took my sister and I on vacation to Florida every summer splitting the time between the beach and Disney. Disney being my favorite!
    When I was just 1, I went to Disney for the first time. Since then I have returned to the happiest place on earth a little over 20 times. For the last 11 years, I’ve got to experience Disney through the eyes of my youngest niece and nephew, from character dining, trick or treating at the Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and tea at the Grand Floridian. I always feel this overwhelming sense of home when I walk down Main Street.
    I have experienced the Fourth of July, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Birthdays, Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party and lots of magical parades and fireworks at Disney.
    I enjoy sharing my Disney experiences with others and would love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for Disney with you! With the many trips to Disney that I’ve had, let me offer you great recommendations for Disney resorts, dining, attractions, and much more and get you started on your dream vacation today!

    Hi! My name is Brande Stotts, I’m a wife, military mother of 2 and a momma to a 4 year old.
    When our older boys were younger, our FAVORITE place on earth was Disney and Universal Studios. We would vacation there every other year, since there is always something new to do, see or ride. Our love for these 2 parks became our favorite thing to do on their Spring Break from school as a family over the years…now that they are older and gone, we still want to pass the excitement on to our little guy and our grandchildren.
    With my 20 plus years in customer service and with our obsession for these parks, I would LOVE to have the opportunity to help you plan your” Most Magical Family Vacation EVER !!

  • Caitlin Smerdel

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I fell in love with Walt Disney World when I was just 8 years old. Little did I know that when I stepped onto Main Street that my entire future was being shaped. Magical, right? After numerous visits later, I attended Purdue University to earn my degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management to turn my home away from home into my lifelong career. I completed the Disney College Program in 2009 working at Disney’s All Star Music Resort and the love that I thought couldn’t get any larger grew to an infinite amount. My experiences span from Walt Disney World to Disneyland, Disney’s Beach Resorts to Disney Cruise Lines, Disney marathons to Disney Water Parks – I just can’t get enough!

    If you’re looking for a seamless, wonderfully magical, life changing, purely authentic Disney vacation, look no further! My love for Disney paired with my detailed planning, expertise and hospitality background will set you up for the trip of a lifetime…and many more!

    What’s my favorite thing about Disney? The magic is endless!

    I have been to Disney World 60+ times. My first trip was when I was 3 years old. I then went again when I was 14 on a school trip. I fell in love with it and decided to save up to go for my high school graduation trip. After that I started going every year which then turned into twice a year, and now 3 times a year. I am a mom of 3 boys, whom have been going since before they were born. I went pregnant with all of them and have taken them since they were infants. My favorite park is Magic Kingdom, I always get a big grin on my face the second we step foot on Main street. I love planning my vacation almost as much as I love going. I help my family plan theirs and decided I would love to help out more people with their magical vacations.

  • Dallas Stapleton

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Since as early as I can remember, Disney parks have been a consistent passion and nerd obsession of mine. Growing up in California, my family, friends, and I visited Disneyland Resort hundreds of times. One of my first jobs was working as a Cast Member at Disneyland Park for over two years and I loved the chance to be a part of the magic.

    Since starting a family of my own, now with five little Disney fans, we’ve also visited Walt Disney World resort at least once a year for the past 8 years.

    When I’m not planning my own trip to a Disney (and Universal) resort, I manage a corporate social media customer service program and can be found listening to Disney podcasts, visiting numerous Disney sites every day, and reading numerous articles on all things Disney in my spare time.

    Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been planning my own trips and others, always determined to make the most of the time available. Some are convinced I love planning the trips as much as the trips themselves! I truly enjoy all of the detail that goes into making a trip the right fit for all involved.

    As a travel advisor, I look forward to dedicating myself to making sure that your trip is as magical as ever!

  • Elizabeth Hippensteel

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I began visiting Walt Disney World regularly starting in 2007 when my daughter was four years old. Our love and appreciation for Disney vacations has grown and expanded since then. With more than 25 visits to Walt Disney World since then, my family and I have learned to love the mouse and his house! Our enjoyment of Disney holidays has expanded with trips to Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris. Most recently we were fortunate enough to visit Disney Aulani on the beautiful island of Oahu!

    One of the regular questions I get from family and friends is “Aren’t you bored of going there AGAIN”? The answer is always “No” because we have found new and exciting events and opportunities with each trip that really make them unique and different each time we visit. We love visiting during the Halloween and Christmas holidays and taking advantage of the other special Disney bonuses such as the Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festivals at Epcot. My husband and I also take a weekend each year to enjoy the parks without my daughter so we can enjoy the Disney experience in a new way.

    Whether it’s your first time visiting Disney with young children or your 20th time, I would love to help you create a magical experience that you will remember forever!

    My love of Disney began when I was 4 years old. My Dad didn’t get to travel as a child and he wanted to make sure that my sisters and were able to experience travelling. Like many kids, I grew up watching Disney movies. So at 4 years old, my parents decided to take me to Walt Disney World in Florida. I was immediately hooked! We travelled there several times and at 20 years old, a friend and I packed up and moved to Florida to work at Disney World. Now as a parent and wife, I want my 3 children and husband to love Disney as much as I always have. We go to Disney World every year. I’ve gone a few times without the kids on girls trips to run a 5k or celebrate a special occasion. With or without the kids, I always have fun.
    Being a Magical Vacation Planner is so exciting for me. I cannot wait to share my love of Disney with other people and help to make their vacation an amazing experience.

Along with my passion for planning is my passion for traveling and all things Disney. I fell in love with Disney World when I was just 6 years old. I converted my husband to a Disney lover as well very quickly into our relationship. Fast Forward to now and I have been blessed enough to enjoy several trips and resort stays at both Disney World and Universal Studios.
    I understand how overwhelming it can be to book all the reservations and fast passes etc. I mean why wouldn’t you want to have someone who enjoys planning so much help you plan your vacation and help take the stress off of you?

    I have loved the spirit of Disney for many years, but my favorite memory would have to be the first time we took our daughter. She was 5 years old at the time and the way her face lit up at first sight of the castle will be something I’ll never forget! I have attended multiple Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party events, taken a girls trip to run the Disney Marathon, and my daughter has danced in a parade at Epcot. Every experience at Disney has been a magical and unique one!

    I am a planner at heart and love the details of making each vacation a memorable experience. Disney trips can fulfill the joys for every member of the family at any age, and it can also be a great trip for friends to experience a magical escape.

She can vividly remember riding It’s A Small World and Dumbo on that trip. Oh, the happiness she felt! As the years went by, she was fortunate enough to visit both Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort several more times. Though her love of Disney grew with each visit, it wasn’t until October 2012 when she took her own five-month-old daughter to Magic Kingdom for the first time that she realized just how magical Disney is. Experiencing this amazing place with her little girl has only intensified her love for all things Disney. Because of this, Kendra and her family have become Annual Passholders and visit the “Happiest Place on Earth” as often as they can.

    Though Kendra is looking forward to helping others experience all Disney has to offer, her passion for traveling extends far beyond the Walt Disney World Resort. Kendra is excited to help you with ALL your vacation needs and desires. From cruises to beach vacations to Disney and Universal Studios packages, Kendra is your go-to gal for planning a memorable trip. Contact her today to get started…vacation is calling!

  • Kristy Ebelhar

    Personal Vacation Advisor - Team Leader

    Kristy’s love of Disney started as an almost 2 year old when she went through the Small World ride and was absolutely smitten with all the ‘babies’ on the ride. Fast forward many years (and trips) later and she got to experience almost the exact memory with her 2 year old daughter. Some of Kristy’s biggest milestones in life thus far have been experienced with the magic of Walt Disney World, she and her husband got engaged and honeymooned there, and have dubbed Disney their, “Happy Place”. As soon as they leave they start planning their next trip.

    Kristy is excited to help families start planning their memories. When you enter Disney World you truly are stepping away from reality and experiencing something that is hard to even put words to. It’s an unforgettable adventure that adults and children cherish and remember in the years to come.

    Although Disney is my first passion, I also can help plan vacations to Sandals/Beaches, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Universal. I love to travel and it’s a great joy to help others plan their vacations and live vicariously through their experiences. Each trip is unique and special and deserves it’s own set of unique plans!

  • 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.

    As a busy wife and mother of 3, I have always loved traveling. Disney was our first big vacation as a family and I fell in love with the the magic Disney creates inside of everyone. Disney world truly is the most magical place in the world.
    I have also developed another true passion in life, and that is cruising. Cruising lets you see a little bit more of the the different cultures there are and lets you experience them a little at a time. Each cruise ship is filled with so many activities and different itineraries you never get bored.
    Universal Studios is another place that my family and I have added to our yearly vacation list. With 3 parks to visit, you never run out of fun things to do.

  • Natalie Roehling

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My name is Natalie Roehling and my love of Disney has been reignited over the last several years. I had begged my non-Disney loving husband to take our daughter to Disney World but he thought she was too young. (How wrong we were!) We went on a whirlwind trip without the help of a Disney travel agent and my husband said we would never go again. It was too crazy, too busy, and we ran from sun up to sun down. I came home wishing that I had talked with someone that would have given me tips and helped us navigate. Armed with research, I convinced him to go again with things that I learned and I can proudly say, we have gone every year (sometimes a couple of times a year) since 2013. While my heart is in the parks, my family loves the Disney cruises.
    I would love to help you plan a magical vacation and win over your “Grumpy” family members. My passion will be evident if I can assist you or your family members with special dietary needs or allergies.

Disney has been a part of Sara’s life beginning at a very young age. Her Grandfather was a huge fan of all things Disney and assured every few years his grand kids experienced the excitement of the parks. Sara and her two sisters are carrying that tradition on with their children.
    “One of my fondest memories is our first ride on Journey into Imagination in Epcot. I turned and asked to ride again. We did but this time we all sang along with the quickly learned song. Although the ride has changed over the years we can still ride and sing along. My preschooler knows all the words and sings it daily.”
    The most recent trip to the most magical place on earth I was able to experience some details on many of the resorts and many of the character meals and table dining offered at Walt Disney World.
    Having a background in theatre and being an activity director for seniors planning detailed daily happenings is something Sara prides herself on. “Sometimes its the smallest details that bring us the most joy in life and the greatest adventure.” Sara can’t wait to help begin your planning and assure your trip has as many great adventures as you can imagine and more

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I first went to Disney World when I was a small child, and now Joseph and I enjoy taking our own children. My youngest daughter took her first steps to get to Tigger at Disney! Disney is always fun, with thrilling rides, great food and awesome shopping. But, some of my favorite times at Disney are the special holiday events, such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I have also had fun there on Thanksgiving & the Fourth of July. I want to help every family to enjoy these great experiences also – there’s is nothing like it!

  • Shannon Schiller

    Personal Travel Advisor

    I think I may have caught the “Disney bug” at birth. I grew up in Anaheim, right next to the original house of the Mouse. We were annual passholders throughout my childhood and I have visited Disneyland over 100 times. I moved to Indiana as a teenager and my new Disney destination became Disney World. Over the years I’ve planned trips for just me and my husband, girls’ trips with my mom and sister, trips for just my family of four and trips for my extended family. On my last trip to Disney World, we used Disney’s Disability Access Service (DAS) since both my nephew and my daughter are autistic and have special travel needs. I have navigated Disney many times with family members who have physical disabilities, so I know the extras that are needed in the parks. Although I love Disney, it is not my only passion. I lived in St. Augustine, Florida for awhile and my husband and I were Universal annual passholders. I also LOVE to cruise, so if you need help sailing the seven seas, I’d love to share my tips and plan your trip. One of my life goals is to travel this entire globe of ours, which I’ve been able to do in part through my full-time job as a high school English teacher. This is my 22nd year in the classroom and as part of my job, I’ve gotten to lead student tours to England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Germany. This summer I’m taking students to Italy and Greece. I’ve got years of experience traveling with kids, including my own who are now 9 and 12. My goal is to make sure your next vacation is as magical as all of mine have been.

    Susan is a wife, mother, teacher/librarian, and a Disney enthusiast! Susan and her husband along with their 3 sons and daughter-in-law have been life-long Disney fans. We have been traveling to Orlando to experience the magic of Disney since 1979. We are very fortunate to have been able to visit Disney Parks over 50 times!

    Disney is more than just a vacation. There is magic in all the details surrounding every aspect of the parks and events. There are hidden Mickeys, parades, character autographs, nightly fireworks with spectacular effects, behind the scenes tours, and so much more to experience as a family.

    We are now traveling to Walt Disney World almost once a month and loving our Annual Passes. We have experienced every holiday and many special events over the years at the parks. We try to test out a new restaurant during each visit to the parks, Disney Springs, or at one of the fabulous resorts.

    Susan and her family have been to California and experienced Disneyland on family vacations. Disneyland is a fantastic trip, and in many ways, very different from your experience at Walt Disney World.

    We recently took a trip to Disney’s Aulani Resort in beautiful Ko’Olina, Hawaii. There are so many activities on site to enjoy that you won’t want to leave!! We highly recommend the Luau that takes place at the resort. There are plenty of opportunities for crafts, photos, dining, and dancing. The resort features amazing pools, water slides, and even a snorkeling pool. Fantastic views and the peaceful Pacific Ocean await you.

    Let Susan help you experience the Magic of Disney in the best way possible.

Being able to help someone experience the Magic of Disney is one of the most rewarding things. By helping another person see the look on their child’s face the first time they see Mickey & Minnie, or a couple that has their wedding at Disney, or helping to plan a family reunion trip is like experiencing the Magic of Disney all the time! The Magical thing about Disney is there is something new to see every time you visit.

    As a family, we are committed to making memories as often as we can. Visiting Walt Disney World has become an annual tradition that never ceases to amaze us. Each year we learn something new and reignite our love for all things Disney!

    As a working mom of 2, I know firsthand how planning the perfect vacation can seem time consuming, stressful and overwhelming. What does your dream getaway look like? Wining and dining your way through Epcot? Pampering your prince or princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique? Unleashing your inner child in the larger-than-life Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios? Seeing your child’s eyes light up under the breathtaking fireworks display at Magic Kingdom? Maybe you’re just unsure of what a great vacation would look like. No problem, let’s dream together!

    I look forward to helping ease your worries and planning a personalized, magical adventure full of smiles, laughs and memories that will last a lifetime!
