    “Do What you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends”
    ~ Walt Disney

    Hi, my name is Alexandria. I am a Mom of two children with a loving husband. I have had the most amazing vacations at Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line, with my first cruise being on the Disney Dream. I have had a fantastic time vacationing all over the Walt Disney World Properties as well. Walt Disney World is always changing keeping one foot in the past and one in the future.

    I hold a degree in Travel and Resort Marketing and had the great pleasure of completing the Disney College Program as well as the Advanced Internship Disney Vacation Club on Hilton Head Island, SC. My Professional career began at Disney Hollywood Studios in Merchandise, where I have twenty years of customer service experience.

    I have been helping my friends and family plan their vacations for years, and my job is to make sure you have the best possible vacation where memories are of smiling faces and great times. Sit back, let me take care of the details. From solo trips, to couple getaways, to family’s vacations to family reunions, I can plan your next vacation.

    Hello vacationers! My name is Celeste and I love to travel, especially to Disney World! Let me tell you a little about myself. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Mike since 2005. We have two amazing kids, Michael & Macie and one fur baby, our Cocker Spaniel, named Bentley. Disney is just so magical that my family and I bought into the Disney Vacation Club in 2013 and then again in 2019, our “home” resorts are the Grand Floridian Villas and Copper Creek! We also are Disney annual passholders and travel to Disney World about 3-4 times a year.

    I’ve been to Disney World over 20 times and I’ve stayed at almost every Disney Resort including the Disney villas. I’ve been to all of the Disney parks and just love each and every one of them. When I go to Disney I love to experience all the different restaurants in the parks and the resorts. We also love to relax and spend some time by the pool too! My favorite time of the year to visit Disney is at Christmas time, we love to see all the beautiful decorations and you can really feel the magic in the air!

    I would love to help you plan your vacation of your dreams!! I also have been on major cruise lines and have traveled to the islands and Sandals so I’ve got you covered! Let the memories begin, I’d love to be your guide on your future travel adventures!

    Thank you in advance and have a MAGICAL DAY! Celeste

    My love of Disney started when my Senior Class Trip was to Disney World. I shared that love with my family and friends and have been taken more than 30 trips! I have been married for 29 years and have 2 adult sons. We have taken trips almost every year since we bought Disney Vacation Club in 2000. We have done adult trips, trips with just our family, trips with friends too. We enjoyed a Disney Cruise too.
    I also love traveling to other destinations. I have taken trips to, Seattle, California, Mexico and the Caribbean. Of course there were a few trips to Disneyland too.

    I began my love of travel in high school and have seen parts of Europe, islands in the Caribbean, many areas of the US on short and long trips, cruises and combined with visiting friends. I have an special love with DisneyWorld and have been a guess 23 times, staying in most of the resorts.

    Being creative fuels me with my handmade soap and candle business, working with a financial institution and taking care of my Mom, whose love of Disney is as strong as mine is. Mom has been with me on almost every trip and those memories are priceless, especially now as Mom has is losing her memory and cannot walk as she used to yet still wants to return again to the most magical place on Earth.

    Allergic to peanuts, I have a perspective on traveling for those with life-threatening allergies and understand the risks. I have met with many of the chefs in Disney World over the years and am active with groups keeping up to date on all the risks and safety measures.

    I visited Disney a couple times when I was younger but it wasn’t until 2009 when I went back with my husband that I fell in LOVE with Walt Disney World. I have been back every year since. Most recently I introduced my 2 girls, who are 4 and 3 to Disney and love it just as much as I do. Disney is a place where I can let go, have fun and be a kid again. I have also experienced Disneyland, California Adventure and Disney’s Aulani.

    My love for Disney will help make your vacation as Magical as they come. Let me plan your next vacation.

    Hi! My name is Julianna, I have been traveling to Walt Disney World every year since 1994. Disney has always been a home away from home for me especially as a Disney Vacation Club member. Some of my favorite things to do in Disney are ride Splash Mountain, eat ice cream on Main Street, explore Disney Springs and relax by the pool. I love everything about Disney from the parks and rides to the food and hotels. Every part of your vacation should transport you into a magical world.

    I first fell in love with Disney as a child while vacationing with my family. I returned to Disney and Universal on our honeymoon and have returned with my own family several times. As a massive fan of The Harry Potter series, I couldn’t get enough of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios!

    I am so excited to be a part of something truly magical! I’m not just talking Disney; I’m also talking about taking the headache and stress out of planning your spectacular vacation! After recently retiring from my retail business after 26 years I could not shake the need to continue to make those personal connections. I missed helping customers whose purchase created a memory, showed love, and created traditions. The shop was built on family traditions, knowing our customers’ needs and although we were a destination shop, we perfected personal shopping. I will be taking that ability to make your vacation perfect too. I am the advocate for “it’s all in the details”, and I thrive on details!

    I absolutely love travelling and now know how to make getting thru TSA a breeze! (Hint, it’s all in the planning and the details!)

    I have been helping families make memories for over 26 years, let me help you create lifetime memories for your family too.

    I have been going to Disney World with my family since 2013, I wanted to give my daughter an experience she would never forget. As a child I never had that type of opportunity to go until I was 13 years old when I went for the first time at Christmas and I fell in love with the lights around Magic Kingdoms Cinderella Castle. When we return every year since then we try out different resorts and I share my love with family and friends. We love now when Disney opens up new attractions and its the first time we all get to enjoy it as a family together or try new foods such as Ohana restaurant.

    The memories you create at Walt Disney World are some of the precious memories you will make with your family. That is what I strive to every single one of my clients and their families- to help them create memories that will last a lifetime.

    It would be my pleasure to assist you with your next vacation.

    Dawn and her husband adopted a little girl in 2016. The family recently went on a Disney cruise of the eastern Caribbean islands. Seeing the look of awe and amazement on their daughter’s face left a lasting impression not only on their daughter but also on Dawn and her husband. Dawn wants to help bring that magic to you and your family!!

    My love of Disney started from a young age, when my family would go camping at Fort Wilderness Campground every Easter. With my new blended family, we have been to Walt Disney World numerous times., and have stayed in almost every resort, giving me great experience in navigating all things Disney, for the littlest one to the grown-ups, proving you’re never to old for Disney. I live in Roselle Park, New Jersey and work as a Paramedic. I have planned fun-filled Disney vacations for my friends and families for many years and now looking forward to plan them for your family. Making wishes come true on any budget or any size party is my goal.

  • Lori May

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    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.

  • Megan Collyer

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    There’s no place in the world that Megan feels more at home than the Disney World Resort! Each time the Magical Express pulls through Disney’s gates, she always feels as if nothing in the real world exists.

    Joining MVP helped Megan fulfill a dream of planning Disney vacations—and she can’t wait to help you plan yours. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, she knows you can work together to create some REAL Disney magic! Megan has experience helping many different types of people plan their Disney vacations—families with young children, families with older children, couples and groups.

    Megan is a daughter, sister, wife, and mommy to a big Disney-loving family! 1992 marks the year of her first trip. Since then, she’s traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort approximately 40 times, celebrating many family vacations and other special moments including performing with her dance troupe on the America Gardens Theatre stage in Epcot in 1994, commemorating New Year’s Eve with her husband in 2007, and her bachelorette party during Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival in 2015.

    In addition, she’s also set sail with Disney Cruise Line, run five runDisney races, visited Disneyland, stayed at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii (4x!), and kayaked with the dolphins at Disney’s Hilton Head Island. You can follow her adventures on Instagram at @mvpmegan or Facebook at facebook.com/mvpbymegan.

    Megan believes there’s no better way to experience Disney than through the eyes of your child. At 21 months, her son Cooper has been to Disney World twice and already cruised with the Mouse! She’ll always remember his first haircut at Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street and the way his eyes lit up with amazement at the parade and the animals outside of his balcony at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village.

We also took a trip to Disneyland for a week.

    I have been on three different cruise lines Disney, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival. I have visited majority of the Caribbean and Mexico.

    Hello Everyone! My name is Steven Harrington and I love all things vacation! I am originally from Kaiserslautern Germany, and my very first vacations growing up were summers at the Jersey shore. We eventually moved to New Jersey and still being young my already growing love of Disney helped teach me a whole new language! Throughout my childhood I was lucky enough to visit Disney several times, and now as I have grown into an adult and am married and expecting our first child in January 2020 Disney has such a more special meaning in my heart. My wife and I vacationed there three times since we dated. With 2017 being my proposal in front of Spaceship Earth at Epcot to March of 2019 being our storybook honeymoon. Disney Vacations makes everyone young at heart and are simply magical. Walking down Main street listening to the Dapper Dans or walking up to see the magnificent Tree of Life brings such a joy to my heart, and I am here to share that joy with you! Allow me to create a lifetime of magical memories for you.
