Hello!  My name is Cathy Pinkleton and I have been a travel consultant with Simply Enchanted Travel since 2015.  I am a retired Disney Cast Member and Disney has always been an important part of my life. I would love to share my passion and enthusiasm with you while we plan your trip!

My favorite Disney character is Dumbo.  The song Baby Mine makes me cry every time I hear it.   

My first visit to Walt Disney World was in 1972 with my entire family.  We went for the day and stayed somewhere off property. The following year we stayed at the Contemporary Resort and a new family tradition was born!  The first time my parents booked a vacation package with A-E tickets, dining coupons and more was the absolute best! My Dad worked hard to make that happen for us!!  We have been going back year after year and we love it all.

If I could ride one ride at Walt Disney World for an entire day it would be the Wedway People Mover!  It is a family favorite and my youngest Grandson says it is his favorite roller coaster! It is the simplest things that mean the most for all of us.

Our family had a tradition that was started by my Dad.  Every trip we would go to the Polynesian Village Resort and my Dad would line up 2 pennies on the second floor railing for each of us to make 2 wishes into the fountain in the lobby.  One wish was always to be allowed one more trip back to Walt Disney World and the second wish was your personal wish. I miss that fountain and I miss my Dad.

My favorite treat at Walt Disney World is a Dole Whip.  My family prefers Citrus Swirls. I love that you can now get a Dole Whip at the Polynesian Resort as well as the Magic Kingdom.

I am very lucky to have visited Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa in Hawaii, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Disney’s Hilton Head Resort and cruised on the Disney Cruise Line.  Disneyland Paris is on my bucket list. Which destinations are on your bucket list?

I have been known to cry when I visit the Magic Kingdom the first day of any trip and I know I cry on the last day.  And I love that my grandchildren now feel the same way about Disney and that they cannot wait for their next vacation. This is why I love being the vacation planning guide, to ensure that you are making magical memories with your family that will last a lifetime!  

Walt’s dream lives on.
