The reason I am so enthusiastic about Walt Disney World: Honestly, there really is no place like it! It’s all around such a great atmosphere. Upon your first steps into the parks, you’re completely immersed in magic! Between the sights, sounds and smells- it’s an outstanding experience! Each of our visits has brought me such great joy, and so many wonderful memories. I truly treasure our time there!

When I am in the Disney Parks, you will always find me wearing: Ears...and maybe even a little coffee, depending on how fast we flew out of the door!

Favorite Disney resort and why? That’s tough! I would say its a close call between The Polynesian and The Grand Floridian...but if I had to choose, Grand Floridian would win. I just adore the lobby! After a long day in the park, it’s so peaceful to listen to the piano and take in the beautiful surroundings. The grounds are meticulously manicured and the view overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon is unmatched. The whole property is just lovely!

My favorite Disney drink is: Another toss up! Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade from Pineapple Promenade (Flower and Garden Fest) or Night Blossom from Pongu Pongu in Animal KIngdom!

One snack I MUST have on every trip is: The Mousse au Chocolat from Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in France at Epcot.

Favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World and why? Fall! One word: Halloween!

Favorite attraction at Walt Disney World: The People Mover in Tomorrowland!

Favorite place at Walt DIsney World to relax in the parks? I love visiting Tom Sawyer’s Island in Magic Kingdom! It’s quiet, shaded and has little picnic tables if your party wants to sit and snack! One of our favorite spots to visit!

My favorite part of helping plan a Walt Disney World vacation is: Sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm with clients! My goal is to create magical experiences for others simply and effortlessly. Knowing that I’ve brought happiness to another family by successfully planning their dream vacation is so rewarding, and so incredibly special! Rewind back to the first time I went to Disneyworld without my parents, I *thought* I knew how to navigate through Disneyworld! After that trip I quickly realized I missed out on so many great opportunities and wasted so much time by making mistakes I didn’t even realize I was making! I have since educated myself, experienced more and began networking (shoutout to my Simply Enchanted Travel family). As a result, I have become exceedingly efficient at planning, which has resulted in maximizing my time while there, and getting the true value out of my vacation! I want to provide that same opportunity for others!
