I am most like Joy from Inside Out. I am extremely happy, full of energy, optimistic and lighthearted. I see less happy moments as speed bumps on the way back to something great!
My favorite Disney experience is sailing with Disney Cruise Line. My father was a Commodore and Captain. In his words to me, “You got your sea legs before you could walk”. When I sail with Disney, it brings my two passions together. There is no other vacation like it!
The biggest and best tip I have for my clients is to spend their Disney vacation staying on Disney property if possible. Not only are there many benefits such as being able to book dining and fastpass reservations before others not staying on property or in a good neighbor hotel, but it heightens the magic of the experience. It’s referred to as staying in the Disney “bubble”. There is so much the Disney resorts have to offer that other hotels do not. There is a wide variety of resorts to fit a diverse variety of budgets and preferences. It really helps make the trip all it can be!
When I am not planning Disney vacations, I am raising my two children and teaching math and computer science to junior high students. I feel my experience as a teacher benefits my clients because a trip is made best when you are educated on what opportunities are out there. I treat each trip I plan as my own.
My favorite part of Disney is Magic Kingdom’s “Happily Ever After” fireworks show. After a super fun day in the parks, this show brings all the magic and wonder together all the way from the classics to the modern pieces of Disney. Cinderella’s Castle becomes part of the show itself. I get emotional because it reminds me of my childhood when Disney movies came on TV. I used to love the image of the castle with the fireworks behind it. Seeing it in real life is surreal!
The reason I became a TA is because when my husband and I decided to take our children to Disney, I had NO clue where to begin the planning process. I worked with one of Simply Enchanted’s consultants who helped make our trip the best trip ever! She used her expertise and handled all the details so that our focus and time could be spent on enjoying the trip. I couldn’t have done it without her. I want to spread that joy and appreciation for what she did for us to other families. So, here I am!
