Jami White

What does this Mom, Wife, Lolli, Artist and You have in common? A love for TRAVEL!

My life is about exploring exciting new places and spending time with Family and Friends. I truly believe spending quality time exploring, laughing, and being together is what builds strong relationships.

I grew up in McFarland, CA best known for running and Disney’s McFarland USA movie. Elsie Fisher plays me, the 10 year old in the movie, one of her lines she says something like, “Are We There Yet?”. This sounds just like me, I can’t wait to get to the next destination to experience the joy of seeing something new, or riding a fabulous ride. We had many trips to National Parks, Disneyland, Disney World, Magic Mountain and Universal while I was growing up and I passed that love on to my children as well. We just booked our first trip to take all of the grandchildren to Disney World. I can’t wait for Lolli and Pop Pop to share that adventurous spirit with them.

Being a Magical Vacation Planner, I would love to share in your families fabulous adventures as well. If I can help you plan your next Cruise, Disney Vacation, or All Inclusive get away let me know. I would love to help you build memories for your family.

“If you can dream, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started by a mouse.” – Walt Disney

A simple mouse created this whole world of imagination. A world to entertain us and educate us. It’s a world of new ideas. It’s a “Carousel of Progress” and with every year it progresses to something new and inviting and draws us in. It all started with me as a child in Cape Coral, Florida – we only lived there for 3 years but we went to Walt Disney World quite a few times especially when family from Ohio visited. Then we moved back to Ohio and I continued to be enthralled with WDW. We didn’t get to visit again for 8 years and those were 8 loooong years. Then as an adult I have gone back as much as possible and now I have taken my kids to enjoy the magic.

I am a proud wife and mother. My husband, Jeremy works from home as a Senior PLM Consultant (computer stuff hehehe) and I work as a registration clerk in a doctor’s office. We have been married for 5 years and have 6 kids between us. Clarissa, Rachel and Zach are all college students at the moment. Justin, Jared and Jason are in 10th grade, 8th grade and 7th grade respectively. They all keep us busy with their activities but we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. Our baby is our 7 year old boxer/bulldog mix, Luke (short for Luke Skywalker) and he is spoiled by all of us.

I have been helping friend and family with their Disney vacations for years and I am excited to help you live the magic on your own vacation!

Jacinta Plescher

My name is Jacinta. I’m from a small town in NC(Lincolnton), but I currently reside Raleigh with my husband.

I look forward to serving others and continuing to make others happy with MVP. 🙂

“I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.” – Belle, Beauty and the Beast

Disney is my happy place! I breathe deeper on Main Street and typically start and end our vacations with a view of the castle! My high school sweetheart hubby and I have been going to Disney almost every year for over 20 years. Our daughter has grown up with Minnie and we can’t wait for our son to grow up with Mickey! My favorite thing about Disney is that everyone finds something that speaks to them that makes their trip enjoyable. For some it’s the characters, rides, shows, food, connections to movies or the magic of “never growing up.” Every trip is unique, customizable and there is always something new to experience. But the most amazing is that everyone leaves with magical memories! I would be honored to help find what speaks to you and yours so that your next vacation is everything you have dreamed of and more!

“Every adventure requires a first step.” – Alice, Alice In Wonderland

Jacque Henley

Hi there! My name is Jacque Henley and aside from shopping and eating, traveling is one of my favorite things to do! Since I was a little girl, taking summer trips to Disney and Universal every year, I quickly grew an admiration and slight (wink wink) obsession with taking trips with my own family. After college, I started a new adventure as a flight attendant which only fueled my desire of traveling that much more. Now that I am a mom, I have been fortunate enough to start the travel tradition with my kids and show them all the magic of Disney, Universal, Mexico, and other beautiful places! I cannot wait to create a vacation that will make lasting memories for you and yours. I look forward to working with you!

My family has been on countless Disney vacations on land and sea. The planning and anticipation of our trips is almost as exciting as the trip itself.

Now, MVP is a Platinum Level Earmarked agency. When booking a trip with me, I will take care of all the details for you like dining, fast passes, and itineraries.

Whether it is Disney World, Disney Land, Adventures by Disney, Disney Cruise Line, or a non-Disney destination, I would be happy to help you plan your next trip. I want every client to feel the Disney Magic, just like I do every time I am there. Experience the magic and leave the planning to me!

Jennifer Dosier

I think it’s so important to collect memories instead of things and to make those memories with the people who mean the most to you.

As a mom to three girls, my husband and I love to create new experiences as a family. We never want to regret the chances we didn’t take or the memories we missed out on creating. My family has been visiting Disney for years and each time the experience is always different. No matter the ages, there is always something that Disney has to offer that each family member loves.

My passion for travel and memory making is a gift that I want to share with others. Helping families, couples, and friends plan a great and exciting adventure fills my heart with joy. I love the opportunity to make each vacation unique and full of memories that will last a lifetime.

Whether it’s a Disney vacation, setting sail on a cruise, or relaxing at an all inclusive resort, I can help you create magical moments and fulfill your vacation dreams!

Jamie Barron

Born and raised in Texas, but always loved The Mouse! I’m fortunately married to a man who understands my Disney obsession, and perhaps works to support it. He is the traveler in the family, so he wasn’t hard to convince that a Disney trip was required after marriage. Together we have 3 kids and I am so pleased to share my love for Disney with them.

My first trip to Disney World wasn’t until 2013. So, I guess you could say I was a late bloomer! Either way, I could not wait to go back – before we even left! Soon I started helping friends plan their trips and giving my opinions. I even planed a trip for my family of 10! It was then, that I knew MVP was for me!

There is something magical about the experience you have in the Disney parks that you can’t find anywhere else. I’m here to make your experience less stressful and more magical. With MVP, you’re The MVP!

Jacob Rossler

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

My love of Travel, Exploring and Planning has brought me to Magical Vacation Planner. As a father of two young children, I have especially caught the Disney travel bug as since seeing my young son’s eyes light up as Mickey Mouse approached him walking down Mainstreet USA. Moments like this and discovering new things is what makes traveling so appealing to me.

Disney Experience: While traveling to Disney, I have experienced staying at all categories of Disney Resorts. Value, Moderate, Deluxe, and Deluxe Villas. I have also stayed offsite with Pros and Cons too each listed. I am currently a Disney Annual Passholder, making the trip down from Ohio a few times each year. I like to think I know the tips an tricks to make the most of a Disney Trip now.

Other Travel Experience: Aside from Disney, my wife and myself have been avid cruisers over the years. We have sailed with Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines. Looking to kick back, unwind and just relax on vacation? I have found Cruising to be the Perfect type of travel to do so.

Jenny Pimentel

Hiya! My favorite quote is from Walt himself. “I hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing, that is was all started by a mouse.'”

Mickey is my favorite as he brings so much joy, happiness and endless memories for all families.

I am a proud mother of 3 amazing children. I enjoy everything Disney. Movies, music, jewelry and of course Disney vacations.

I look forward to the opportunity to help others achieve their dream of a Disney vacation whether it is their first visit or 100th.

Jennifer Walters

Hi, I’m Jen and I’m so excited to be able to help you plan your dream Disney vacation! I love all things Disney! As I child I was fortunate enough to travel to Disney several times as well as many other exciting destinations which is how my love for travel came about!

I have 3 children and there is not much I love more then taking them to Disney and seeing their faces light up with pure joy and excitement! We try to go to Disney at least 2 times per year and we also like to take them to other places so they can experience different cultures, broaden their horizons and make memories that will hopefully last a lifetime!

I look forward to helping you plan your vacation!

Jacki Zolezzi

My Disney obsession started at age three with The Little Mermaid, the first film I ever saw in a movie theater. That Disney love only grew with my first trip to Walt Disney World at age seven, back when Paddlefish was the Empress Lily, and it hosted a character breakfast where I got to meet Mickey for the first time. I was fortunate enough to take two more trips to WDW with my family, as well as going with my friends for our high school senior trip and those memories have lasted a lifetime.

In 2011, I went to Disney World for the first time with my boyfriend and we started vacationing there regularly, with a weeklong trip every other year. In 2013, we got engaged at Disney, and in 2016, our honeymoon included a stop at Aulani. As of March 2022, we are now living in Florida, about an hour from the magic.

Disney has always been a staple in my life and I love sharing that with people. My hope is that families can make those core memories and grow up with Disney just like I did. I am so excited to be able to combine my experience from many Disney vacations with my knowledge as a local to help you plan your perfect trip!

Favorite Walt Disney Quote: “I hope that we never lose sight of one thing: that it was all started by a mouse.”

Jen Shields

Jen’s love of Disney began during her first family trip to Disney World with her husband and two young sons. Since then, Disney has become a passion. Her love for details and knowledge of resorts, restaurants, activities, and more will assist in creating a personalized experience. Jen wants your vacation to be magical!

Jen and her family currently live in Severna Park, MD. She is a Disney Vacation Club member and travels to Disney World at least once a year. Her husband is in the U.S. Coast Guard, which has given her first-hand experience of navigating the planning process for military families. She is also the go-to Disney person for family and friends. Let her assist you in making your vacation planning stress-free and help create memories for you and your family!

Jennifer Moore

As an Annual Pass holder for the past 15+ years, Jennifer considers Walt Disney World her “second home”. When people ask what keeps her coming back, her answer is simple. “The magic is always there, but it’s never the same. There is always a new adventure. There are always new experiences, rides, and tasty treats.”

Jennifer and her husband were celebrating life events at Walt Disney World long before they were raising two princesses of their own. Now they are seeing it through a whole new set of eyes. Watching her family experience the joys of Mickey balloons, Dole Whips, Tinkerbell in the night sky, and journeys to imaginary worlds brings her just as much excitement as the first time she experienced it all herself.

She would love to help you make new magical memories with your family and friends.

Jeannine McGuire

Disney has so much to offer and through my years of traveling to the “most magical place on earth”, I would love to help you and your family make your own magical memories! My husband and I made our first trip in 2004 with our 2 children, and we have been back every year since, even twice in some years. No matter how often we visit, I always look forward to planning our next trip! As your MVP consultant, I will work with you to make sure your trip is everything you want and more. Everyone has their own idea of what their perfect vacation should be, and I know we can work together to achieve that.

I first visited Disney as a child with my grandparents at the age of 6, and again with my parents and my sister and brother at the age of 10. My love for Disney grew into my teenage years as I visited with friends for our “Senior Week” in high school and even in later years with my “boyfriend” who I married in 1998. My family and I have visited several different Disney resorts and we’ve also been on the Disney Cruise. We absolutely LOVE to travel! As our children got older, we also visited the Universal resorts and they too have so much to offer.
No matter how young or old you may be, Disney offers something for everyone. My daughter’s favorite character is Peter Pan and as the saying goes “Never grow up!” Whether you choose a fun filled week in Disney, or want to kick back and enjoy a quiet weekend at Disney’s Vero Beach resort. If you choose an action packed adventure at Universal Studios or to be swept away on a cruise somewhere, I will do my best to ensure that every aspect of your vacation appeals to the young and the young at heart.

Julie de la Fe

Most days don’t you wish you were walking down Main Street with Cinderella’s Castle in view? Do you ever just wish your soft pretzel was in the shape of a Mickey head? If you’re like me, you might miss the trips on the Safari with a Starbucks only a few hundred yards away.

Well my name is Julie de la Fe and I would love to help you book an amazing vacation with your favorites in mind! My son and I are frequent (weekly) visitors to Walt Disney World but have been to Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, Universal and on a Disney Cruise in the nine years I have lived in Orlando.

Whether that is trying all the Orlando has to offer or focusing on an epic Disney vacation I would love to serve you in planning accommodations, dining and more! There are so many opportunities to tailor your vacation to your family’s likes and pace. If you have any questions feel free to contact me!

Jill Fisher

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!

Jacqueline Willard

Travel has been in my blood since I was a child. My parents always felt we should travel and see something different every year. But no matter what we always did one trip a year to Walt Disney World during winter holiday. It was a special time for my parents knowing they could spend that time with their children.

As I got older it changed but no matter what I still loved to travel to new and exciting locations. Whether it is Disney, Europe or a cruise I love to share my experiences with my friends and family.

Many of friends would ask me where to go, what to see and how to book that perfect trip. I was lucky enough to find Magical Vacation Planner and be hired to be part of this amazing team. Now I know more tricks and can give great tips to family, friends and anyone who ask how to book that amazing vacation.

Since 2004 I have been cruising started with Disney Cruise Line to Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Line. And in 2006 I started to travel in Europe, with stops in Italy, Vietnam, Scotland and United Kingdom. In 2017 I was lucky enough to go to Aulani in Hawaii with my family and it was something amazing to see and experience, not just at the resort but to see the island and the history there. So if you want to know about travel around the United States, Europe, and Cruises I have that personal knowledge to help plan out that perfect vacation.

Jessica Wagoner

Walt Disney World has become a home away from home for my family, and when we are not there, we are dreaming of our next Disney adventure! Many of our favorite family memories are thanks to Disney magic, which we have experienced time and time again.

Over the years, I have enjoyed Disney from various perspectives, which have included going as a child and as part of a high school group to going with my family while pregnant and with my children at various stages from infant to preteen.

My family has been attending annually for the past decade and are now Annual Passholders. We have stayed in Value, Moderate, and Deluxe Resorts and have most recently enjoyed traveling from Maryland to Walt Disney World with our travel trailer for ten days at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

I love to share my excitement and passion for Disney with others and am thrilled for the opportunity to learn more about your family to help plan a customized, magical vacation just for you!

Jenn Lashway

Travel memories are the favorite souvenirs I love knowing my guests bring back home from a trip we’ve created together.
Working with my clients to plan their vacations to destinations like Walt DisneyWorld, Disneyland, Universal Studios Orlando and so many other locations allows me to help create some wonderous moment memories.
I still remember watching my daughter as she first saw Cinderella’s Castle at Walt DisneyWorld almost 19 years ago. And I’ll never forget when she was part of the wand choosing the wizard experience at Universal Studios Orlando.
Working with my clients to book their all-inclusive resort or cruise vacations allows me to help create some momentous memories. Whether I’m planning a mini-moon, honeymoon, anniversary or the like… these trips are all about making memories that touch your heart.
My honeymoon to DisneyWorld was such a strong memory that it turned my 2022 anniversary dream trip to Aulani & Disneyland into reality.
So whether you’re looking for a trip around the corner, or around the globe, as a solo trip or with a large group… I am ready to work with you and make some truly magical vacation memories!

Julie Mason

I am a wife and mother of a travel loving family from the North Texas area. We have been to Disney, Universal and cruised on several cruise lines to multiple destinations in the Caribbean and Alaska. My adult children still keep me on my toes. I also like to read and scrap book in my spare time. My dream is to make other families’ vacations the most magical they can be for that individual family.

Jake Brooks

Jake was born and raised in the New Albany, IN area, and now lives in Shelbyville, IN with his wife, Kristina, and daughter, Lucy. When he and Kristina first started dating, she invited him to go to Disney World as part of her family’s long-standing tradition, and after experiencing the awesomeness of the Osborne Family Lights and the deliciousness of Le Cellier, he fell in love.

Since then, Jake has found his own corner of the global Disney community that speaks directly to his inner creativity. After seeing how Disney inspires so many creative people to make gorgeous works of art, Jake has been on a quest to share the side of Disney many people don’t consider. The side that brings out the beauty and the passion in others.

Jake’s been to Disney in almost every stage of life – as a kid, a teenager, a married adult without children, and now a parent. If you are looking for a Disney experience catered to who you are and what you’re into, contact Jake and he can work with you to make it happen!

Jenn Munson

My love for Disney started at 5 years old when my parents and grandparents took me for the first time. I was hooked and was able to attend several trips throughout my teen years for cheerleading competitions and family vacations.
As an adult, that Magical feeling upon entering Disney World continues to grow in my heart with every trip I take. Sharing those moments with my friends and family has been the most rewarding. Taking my nephew for his first trip to Disney in 2016 was the highlight of my year. Seeing his face when he met his favorite characters melted my heart and brought tears of joy to my eyes!
I love sharing my knowledge of Disney and want to help everyone to experience the Magic of the happiest place on Earth!

I have been a Magical Vacation Planner since January 2018. My family has traveled to Disney and Universal Orlando multiple times over the years. This helps me stay current and up to date on changes and new things to share with your family! I have my own list of tips/tricks that I have compiled to help your family save time/money to ensure your focus is on making memories.

I put a lot of effort into planning my own vacations and would love to do the same for you to ensure that you have a magical experience where “Dreams come true.”

Jamie Clemens

I have had a love for all-things-Disney since my first visit as a young child and completely addicted to Disney travel since I went with my family as a teenager. From the amazing service to the details and story in every attraction, meal, and experience, Disney has the unique ability to inspire kids and adults the same!

Convincing our family and friend Disney “skeptics” that it truly can be for everyone has become a great passion. In fact, when I dated my husband I convinced him to take a trip with me and he fell as much in love with it as I did. Several years later we were married in the place that “happies” our hearts the most–the Happiest Place on Earth. Fast forward a few more years and we’ve turned our son into a little Disney addict as well.

I have SO much faith that Disney can have a place in the heart of everyone that I have spent countless hours planning details and helping them make special memories, no matter what it is they are looking for from their trip. It is the running joke around here that I get just as excited for other people creating their Disney experience as I do when we are planning our own (and sometimes more!). There is just nothing like that FIRST Disney trip.

We have stayed in a variety of resorts and dined every which way; seen old and new characters, and tried so many experiences. I’m so happy to be able to share our best tips and tricks and advice with others.

Leave your glass slippers by the door; step inside our castle and let me help you create your Happy Ever After trip!

Jessica Markhorst

Hey I’m Jess, to my friends and family I’ve always been known for my love of Disney. I’ve been going to Disney since I was 18 months old, and as I’ve gotten older have helped plan many trips. That’s why I joined MVP it was a no brainer to combine a love of mine and a career together. MVP has allowed me to learn about more vacation destinations within different cruise lines and all inclusive getaways. I love to travel and learn to get that firsthand experience for myself to come back and better help my guests with their vacations. Vacation memories last a lifetime and being apart in the planning process is something special.
I can’t wait to help share my love and excitement for planning a vacation with my guests and create those everlasting vacation memories!

Julie Tator

Julie developed her love of Disney at a very young age. In 1998, while vacationing at the Walt Disney Resort with her family, Julie decided that she wanted to work there. So in 1999, she packed up and moved to Orlando to work at what she calls, “her happiest place on Earth.” While working for the Walt Disney Company, Julie met her husband, who was a cast member as well, and the rest is history.

Now a mom to 3 beautiful children, Julie loves to travel with her family to Walt Disney World several times a year. There is nothing better than experiencing the magic of Disney through the eyes of her children. They are currently Annual Passholders and visit the WDW Resort every few months. Julie is asked all the time to help her family and friends with their vacation planning. She is always giving great tips on places to eat, resorts to stay in and rides and shows not to miss. She looks forward to helping your family have a magical experience!

She quickly came back and gave a report to her classmates on how to best visit Walt Disney World. Jennifer hasn’t stopped planning trips for her family and others since then. Her kids began traveling to Walt Disney World at a young age and she loves the magic they experience each and every vacation together. This magic is why she continues to take family vacations as often as she possibly can. Jennifer enjoys helping families plan magical trips as well. Vacations to all Disney destinations as well as Universal and Royal Caribbean cruises are where she thrives.

Jennifer enjoys helping bring the magic of travel to others and is grateful to be working with a company like Magical Vacation Planner that allows her to do so.

Jeremy Ernst

Friends, family, and co-workers know me as the “Disney guy.” For as long as I can remember I have loved all things Disney. I met my wife in high school and we could often be found wandering the local Disney Store and dream of one day visiting the parks together. We married in 2005 and by 2010 we were able to take our first trip to Walt Disney World with our two sons. It was then that my love for Disney grew even more.

I had visited Disney World in the past, but for my wife and kids, it was their first visit. Seeing their faces when they entered “the Happiest Place on Earth” was one of the best feelings in the world! Since that time we have added to our family and now have 3 boys. We continue to take our family vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort and add to all the magical memories!

I look forward to sharing my experience, knowledge, and memories with you to plan your next vacation. Together we will plan your dream vacation and have you on your way to making your most magical dreams come true! Happy planning!

I take our mission seriously, and look forward to meeting you!

Jean Moore

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever” -Walt Disney- This is one of my favorite quotes by Walt Disney. This quote reflects everything you see and feel when visiting a Disney park and that is exactly what I want to share with you! I didn’t get to go to Walt Disney World until I was an adult and even though I wasn’t a child, I still immediately fell in love with it. I can still even remember the very first time I saw Cinderella’s castle I literally teared up. The magic just grabs ahold of you. My friends and family have been taking my advice on their vacations for many years now. These vacations have been everything from Disney, Universal, all-inclusive resorts, cruises, & family outings. I have a lot of enthusiasm, experience, and love for travel. I hope to share that with you and assist you in creating a magical vacation.

My Services are 100% FREE for you and your family. I am paid directly by the destination (the destination fixes in travel agent commissions into all their packages whether you use one or not and we are paid AFTER your travel date). My job is to alleviate the stressful planning, answer questions (before, during, and after your stay), and keep an eye out for Promotions/Offers to save money and/or enhance your stay. When booking directly without an Agent, the destination will NOT apply or notify you of any promotions.
