• Cortney Smith

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Cortney has a lifelong love of all things Disney. More than the memories of her own trips as a child to Walt Disney World, she has loved introducing each of her three boys to her love. Trips with her parents and children together have give her experience with traveling in multi-generational trips, as well as children with large age gaps. And the food! So much, delicious food! What began as answering friends questions turned into helping those friends create magical memories by planning and helping them find the best options!

    Joining the Magical Vacation Planner family has allowed Cortney to help others create their Magical Memories with family and friends! Sharing her passion with new friends is the best part! Being able to experience new places in the Disney universe including Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line and Aulani–a Disney Resort in Hawaii has been exciting and rewarding.

    As her children have gotten older, Cortney has expanded her knowledge to include Universal Studios, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Beaches and Sandals resorts and continues to find new destinations to learn about and share!

    She would love to help you make those Memories!

    Elisa has taken her love of Disney as a small child and passed that along to her own children (and husband ) Having children ranging in age from 8 to 20, Disney is her family’s favorite vacation spot. It is the only place that her family feels offer something for everyone while still letting them create wonderful memories all together. You know you are doing something right if your teenager still loves to vacation with you! As annual passholders, her family enjoys exploring well beyond the parks. Every trip they love to discover new restaurants or explore new resorts and activities.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I have been married to my husband since 2006. We have one son(9), and 3 dogs. I enjoy watching my son play sports, working out, and anything Disney!

    I have loved Disney since childhood and now that I’m an adult, that love for Disney continues.
    My family and I have been to Disney several times and it is a new experience each time! We have stayed at multiple resorts from the All Star Sports Resort to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. We love eating at the various restaurants and have utilized the Disney Dining Plan the last 3 years. Our favorite restaurants are Chef Mickey, Be Our Guest, Restaurantosaurus, and 1900 Park Fare. Our last trip was during Christmas so our favorite snacks were anything peppermint but our all time favorite is the Dole Whip.

    I love planning my own trips and my friends and family consider me the “go to” person for questions about Disney. Whether it’s where to eat, where to stay, when to go, which characters to meet, fast passes to use, or rides to ride. I put alot of effort into planning my vacations and would love to do the same for you. I will help you plan and organize your vacation to ensure that you have a magical experience where “Dreams come true.”

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Ever since I first walked down Main Street in Disney World as a child, I have loved the energy and magic of Disney. Helping others experience the happiness of this magic is a goal of mine.

    I have three daughters and we love traveling and experiencing new adventures. We travel to Disney annually and each time we find new restaurants, rides and experiences to make each trip unique. My family has cruised to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, visited Beaches in the Turks & Caicos, and enjoyed Universal Studios in Orlando. I look forward to trying an Alaskan cruise and visiting Disney Aulani in the next few years.

    I understand how overwhelming planning an unforgettable vacation can be in. That’s where I can help. I love planning vacations for my family and I would love to plan a vacation for yours!
