Hi. My name is Megan LaMaster. I reside in Indiana with my husband and 2 children. I have a passion for my family and for travel.

“Traveling-It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
Disney has always been my happy place! From childhood to momhood, it has carried a special AND magical place in my heart! Not only do I have a love for Disney, but I have a love for travel. I love going new places, experiencing new things, creating memories and being a foodie along the way. I am excited to be able to take my knowledge of travel and Disney experience to help YOU create whimsical memories to last a lifetime. Don’t think of me as a travel agent, but your Vacation Imagineer!
Shauna has been a Disney connoisseur since the tender age of 8, when she had her very first trip to Disney World. Since then she has loved all things Disney (who wouldn’t?)! She has already instilled this love to both her husband and her 8 year old identical twin daughters; planning yearly (sometimes bi-yearly) vacations to really bring the family together. Shauna believes (as Walt did) that ALL people should be able to bask in the glory that is Disney, at least once in their lives. So, she has joined the MVP team to help spread Walt’s magical dream!
Vacationing doesn’t stop there though! If Disney isn’t your thing (if that’s such a thing,) she wants to help you find the vacation PERFECT for you and your family! MVP works with many travel partners to help give you the choices you want.
Shauna has degrees and experience in both Business and Accounting; and with this knowledge she can help you find the ideal vacation within your budget. Shauna cannot wait to help you plan your best vacation ever! A Magical Adventure Awaits!
Wanderlust, Gallivanter, Globetrotter, Hodophile are all words to describe someone who loves to travel. I definitely am a part of this group and want to help others find or expand on their desire to travel.
For years family and friends have approached me for advice regarding vacationing so being an Independent Travel Consultant is a natural fit for me. Disney World and cruising are my specialties but I have a great deal of experience in several areas of travel. I have planned intimate couples vacations and fun girls only getaways. When I became a new Mom nearly 12 years ago I was worried it would hinder our travel schedule. At 8 months old we took our son out of the country for the first time, fast forward nearly 12 years and he is on his 3rd passport and a well seasoned traveler. I am so thankful for all of the amazing memories and adventures I’ve had due to being fortunate enough to travel.
Planning is TRULY half the fun for me. I love researching and coordinating vacations so you and your family can have a fun and stress free trip. Please contact me so we can discuss what you want out of your next trip. Whether you are looking to get the most bang for your buck or to spare no expense or seek a great adventure or want to relax by the ocean I believe that planning is the key to having YOUR dream vacation.
Areas of focus: All things Disney; Universal Studios and Resorts; Cruising; All Inclusive Resorts; Family Trips; Adult Only Trips
I have loved Disney for as long as I can remember. After traveling to Disney World, Disneyland and cruising with Disney for years sharing information and tips with family and friends, I decided that I wanted to share my knowledge with you so your vacation is magical as possible.

My experience in travel is diverse. I’ve been to Mexico and experienced different levels of all-inclusive resorts multiple times. I’ve been on different cruise lines in the Caribbean and Alaska. I’ve been to Disney World every year except 2020 for the past 8 years. I’ve been to Disneyland. I’ve been to Universal Orlando multiple times. I enjoy traveling and planning vacations.
Gina became hooked on Disney at an early age and has visited Walt Disney World too many times to count. She even took her passion for Walt Disney World to the extreme and did the Disney College Program. While there, she worked at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and got to know the ins & outs of each park. Whenever any family member or friend has a question or wants advice on what they should do when they visit Walt Disney World they go to Gina. Gina knows how overwhelming planning a Walt Disney World vacation can be for families and wants to eliminate stress in any way she can. Whether it be dining recommendation, what hotels give you best bang for your buck or how to optimize your time in parks. Gina will help you plan a stress-free Walt Disney World vacation.
As a family, we are committed to making memories as often as we can. Visiting Walt Disney World has become an annual tradition that never ceases to amaze us. Each year we learn something new and reignite our love for all things Disney!
As a working mom of 2, I know firsthand how planning the perfect vacation can seem time consuming, stressful and overwhelming. What does your dream getaway look like? Wining and dining your way through Epcot? Pampering your prince or princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique? Unleashing your inner child in the larger-than-life Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios? Seeing your child’s eyes light up under the breathtaking fireworks display at Magic Kingdom? Maybe you’re just unsure of what a great vacation would look like. No problem, let’s dream together!
I look forward to helping ease your worries and planning a personalized, magical adventure full of smiles, laughs and memories that will last a lifetime!
My love for Disney began when I first visited as a teenager. Since then I have visited as much as possible while instilling the love for Disney in my 3 kids. I will never forget the day my then 5 year old daughter, Kristen, got to meet The Little Mermaid, Ariel. The look one her little face was simply magical. Magic Kingdom is the first park I visited and still enjoy the magic of it all. From Main Street and all the shops and delightful smells to Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and even the classic It’s A Small World ride. Being a Registered Veterinary Nurse, I was thrilled to hear of Animal Kingdom’s opening. I have had several friends work at Animal Kingdom so I’ve had the privilege of seeing some behind scenes where most guests don’t get to go. During one of my visits, Roy Disney’s Grandson was touring while I visiting the Animal Hospital which is something I will always remember. A friend who worked there even mailed me pixie dust once to cheer me up and boy did it work. I have so many great memories and I would enjoy helping you make your Disney memories too.
Gina has always had a special place in heart when it comes to Disney. Some of her fondest childhood memories are visiting the WDW parks and watching her favorite Disney movies!
Now as an adult, her love for Disney has grown now that she gets to share this same passion with her children. As a family, they have experienced the WDW parks, resorts, restaurants, and events such as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Halloween on the High Seas. They hope to experience Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Adventures of Disney in the near future.
Gina is looking forwards to assisting you in your vacation planning either at the parks or the high seas. With her knowledge of the WDW an the cruise line, she will be able to provide high level professionalism in planning a magical vacation!

As an adult, Andrew spent his honeymoon in Disney back in 2015 and has been going to his “second home” regularly ever since. He even became a Disney Vacation Club member in 2017. Each time Andrew vacations he tries to find something new to experience, whether it is a new restaurant, resort, ride, or show. However, he has to watch the fireworks at the end of the night!
When Andrew is not at Disney he spends a lot of free time planning his next vacation and scouring the internet to find out as much Disney news as he can. On his 2017 trip, he decided to create a YouTube channel with his husband – So Glorio(u)s – to vlog their vacations as a way of recording all the magical memories and offer any tips or advice with anyone watching. Whenever anyone mentions they are going to Disney, Andrew can’t stop himself from finding out all the details and answering any questions they may have. He could talk about Disney all day and never tire of it. Because of this, Andrew has become the number one person to go to for Disney travel advice among his friends and family. After helping a friend plan her first Disney trip, he was told that he should do this professionally. Enter Magical Vacation Planner!

I have been to Disney World 60+ times. My first trip was when I was 3 years old. I then went again when I was 14 on a school trip. I fell in love with it and decided to save up to go for my high school graduation trip. After that I started going every year which then turned into twice a year, and now 3 times a year. I am a mom of 3 boys, whom have been going since before they were born. I went pregnant with all of them and have taken them since they were infants. My favorite park is Magic Kingdom, I always get a big grin on my face the second we step foot on Main street. I love planning my vacation almost as much as I love going. I help my family plan theirs and decided I would love to help out more people with their magical vacations.
I think I may have caught the “Disney bug” at birth. I grew up in Anaheim, right next to the original house of the Mouse. We were annual passholders throughout my childhood and I have visited Disneyland over 100 times. I moved to Indiana as a teenager and my new Disney destination became Disney World. Over the years I’ve planned trips for just me and my husband, girls’ trips with my mom and sister, trips for just my family of four and trips for my extended family. On my last trip to Disney World, we used Disney’s Disability Access Service (DAS) since both my nephew and my daughter are autistic and have special travel needs. I have navigated Disney many times with family members who have physical disabilities, so I know the extras that are needed in the parks. Although I love Disney, it is not my only passion. I lived in St. Augustine, Florida for awhile and my husband and I were Universal annual passholders. I also LOVE to cruise, so if you need help sailing the seven seas, I’d love to share my tips and plan your trip. One of my life goals is to travel this entire globe of ours, which I’ve been able to do in part through my full-time job as a high school English teacher. This is my 22nd year in the classroom and as part of my job, I’ve gotten to lead student tours to England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Germany. This summer I’m taking students to Italy and Greece. I’ve got years of experience traveling with kids, including my own who are now 9 and 12. My goal is to make sure your next vacation is as magical as all of mine have been.
Susan is a wife, mother, teacher/librarian, and a Disney enthusiast! Susan and her husband along with their 3 sons and daughter-in-law have been life-long Disney fans. We have been traveling to Orlando to experience the magic of Disney since 1979. We are very fortunate to have been able to visit Disney Parks over 50 times!
Disney is more than just a vacation. There is magic in all the details surrounding every aspect of the parks and events. There are hidden Mickeys, parades, character autographs, nightly fireworks with spectacular effects, behind the scenes tours, and so much more to experience as a family.
We are now traveling to Walt Disney World almost once a month and loving our Annual Passes. We have experienced every holiday and many special events over the years at the parks. We try to test out a new restaurant during each visit to the parks, Disney Springs, or at one of the fabulous resorts.
Susan and her family have been to California and experienced Disneyland on family vacations. Disneyland is a fantastic trip, and in many ways, very different from your experience at Walt Disney World.
We recently took a trip to Disney’s Aulani Resort in beautiful Ko’Olina, Hawaii. There are so many activities on site to enjoy that you won’t want to leave!! We highly recommend the Luau that takes place at the resort. There are plenty of opportunities for crafts, photos, dining, and dancing. The resort features amazing pools, water slides, and even a snorkeling pool. Fantastic views and the peaceful Pacific Ocean await you.
Let Susan help you experience the Magic of Disney in the best way possible.

As an adult I love the look on my children’s faces when we spend our days at the parks, those are priceless the priceless moments I live for! My goal is to share the love we have for Disney to others and help them in making memories for their families, and future families!
Like most, I grew up with a love for all things Disney.

I live in Bedford with my husband and two children. I grew up loving all things Disney and had all the movies, all the dolls, and could sing all the songs (still can!). I visited Disneyland when I was 13 years old and can still remember being in awe. Several years later I was able to share my love of Disney with my husband and our children. My first trip to Walt Disney World was when my children were 4 and almost 2. I was once again in awe but there is something so magical about seeing Disney World through the eyes of your children. We were hooked! We made it a mission to get back to Disney World as often as possible. We love being in our “Disney bubble” where we are free to enjoy each other’s company at our favorite place in the whole world.
I am a self-proclaimed Disnerd with a pretty impressive collection of Minnie ears! I have stayed at many of the resorts and have visited most of them. I love finding new merchandise sneaking bits of Disney into my everyday life, shoes, shirts, phone cases, wallets, etc. I have experience in planning and taking trips with toddlers, little kids, older kids, and pre-teens. My son had his first haircut at Disney and my daughter has had a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, both were amazing experiences. My husband and I have also taken an adults only trip. That is the best thing about Disney, it’s great for all ages!
I am constantly researching and reading about all the new things coming to the parks. I love helping other families discover the magic and wonder of Disney. Any day that I can spend part of the day talking about Disney is a great day! I would love to help your family make new memories at the most magical place on earth.
“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” – Walt Disney
Kendra has always been passionate about traveling and seeing the world. From a very young age, her parents instilled in her a love for vacationing and experiencing all she can. Her many experiences have only helped this passion of hers grow throughout the years, and she is now eager to help you make magical memories of your own.
One of Kendra’s greatest loves is traveling to Walt Disney World. Kendra fell in love with Walt Disney World when she first visited there in 1983. She can vividly remember riding It’s A Small World and Dumbo on that trip. Oh, the happiness she felt! As the years went by, she was fortunate enough to visit both Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort several more times. Though her love of Disney grew with each visit, it wasn’t until October 2012 when she took her own five-month-old daughter to Magic Kingdom for the first time that she realized just how magical Disney is. Experiencing this amazing place with her little girl has only intensified her love for all things Disney. Because of this, Kendra and her family have become Annual Passholders and visit the “Happiest Place on Earth” as often as they can.
Though Kendra is looking forward to helping others experience all Disney has to offer, her passion for traveling extends far beyond the Walt Disney World Resort. Kendra is excited to help you with ALL your vacation needs and desires. From cruises to beach vacations to Disney and Universal Studios packages, Kendra is your go-to gal for planning a memorable trip. Contact her today to get started…vacation is calling!

Hello! My name is Heather. My family consists of my husband of 11 years, 1 son, and 2 Labradors. We love to travel with our favorite destination being Walt Disney World but we love a little beach time as well. My son dreams of being a Disney Imagineer someday so we do all we can to support his dream. I would love to help you plan a magical vacation with memories that will last a lifetime.
Hi! My name is Brande Stotts, I’m a wife, military mother of 2 and a momma to a 4 year old.
When our older boys were younger, our FAVORITE place on earth was Disney and Universal Studios. We would vacation there every other year, since there is always something new to do, see or ride. Our love for these 2 parks became our favorite thing to do on their Spring Break from school as a family over the years…now that they are older and gone, we still want to pass the excitement on to our little guy and our grandchildren.
With my 20 plus years in customer service and with our obsession for these parks, I would LOVE to have the opportunity to help you plan your” Most Magical Family Vacation EVER !!
As a single mom and lawyer, I love Disney because it offers a break from the chaos of daily life. I simply love that you can disappear into the Magic… I mean MICKEY will visit you during a dinner that you don’t have to cook!!! As a small business owner, and mom-preneur, I believe in doing what you love and loving what you do. I love Disney for always making our vacations memorable and accommodating my family’s needs without hesitation. My son has physical special needs and food allergies. I have never had to stress those differences when we are in the Parks or Resorts. Our Disney trips are a respite from those day-to-day worries for me. My personal Disney experiences range from multiple single and multi-family Disney World trips, RunDisney Girl Trips (Yes! … I have Dopey-ed) and a magical cruise experience with our extended family.
Other than Disney, I love spending time with my tribe of family and friends. I love live music and fun dining experiences (Disney offers both of those year round!). I decided to become a Disney planner to help support my daughter’s competitive dance experience… and because I believe in the Magic of Disney and want to help everyone have magical memories to last a lifetime! I have have been blessed to “do Disney” with my kids, their aunts and uncles, my nieces and nephews, my mom and some of my closest friends. Disney, for us, is about capturing life’s fleeting moments and spending quality time together.
I look forward to helping you have plan an amazing trip that I will be jealous of… because I’m always jealous of anyone who is hanging out with Mickey while I’m home doing the laundry:)
My name is Amanda Ochs, and I live in Southern Indiana.
My love of Disney came from an early age when my parents took my sister and I on vacation to Florida every summer splitting the time between the beach and Disney. Disney being my favorite!
When I was just 1, I went to Disney for the first time. Since then I have returned to the happiest place on earth a little over 20 times. For the last 11 years, I’ve got to experience Disney through the eyes of my youngest niece and nephew, from character dining, trick or treating at the Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and tea at the Grand Floridian. I always feel this overwhelming sense of home when I walk down Main Street.
I have experienced the Fourth of July, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Birthdays, Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party and lots of magical parades and fireworks at Disney.
I enjoy sharing my Disney experiences with others and would love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for Disney with you! With the many trips to Disney that I’ve had, let me offer you great recommendations for Disney resorts, dining, attractions, and much more and get you started on your dream vacation today!

Ashley is a passionate Disney traveler and enthusiast who has years of Disney travel experience, tips, and advice.

I’m a mom of 2, wife, school employee, and all-around Disney lover! I decided a few years back that I love going to Disney and giving my friends advice so much that I’d love to do it for a living. So here I am! I love keeping up with all the latest Disney news and taking notes on the best snacks for your day. Disney has such an important place in my heart and my family’s. When my friends have Disney questions, I’m the one they turn to and I absolutely love it!
I am a devoted wife and a mom of 2 little ones. I am a planner through and through. It’s something that has always been a part of me and I genuinely enjoy doing it. I have a way of planning things out but still leaving room for rest and relaxation so you do not feel like you’re on a strict itinerary. Along with my passion for planning is my passion for traveling and all things Disney. I fell in love with Disney World when I was just 6 years old. I converted my husband to a Disney lover as well very quickly into our relationship. Fast Forward to now and I have been blessed enough to enjoy several trips and resort stays at both Disney World and Universal Studios.
I understand how overwhelming it can be to book all the reservations and fast passes etc. I mean why wouldn’t you want to have someone who enjoys planning so much help you plan your vacation and help take the stress off of you? I just want others to see the magic of Disney and/or travel the way I do and get a great experience with their families.
In a world of Google and online booking platforms, you might be wondering “what do travel advisors do anyway”, and this is by no means a full list, but let me give you some insight.
I don’t just book travel. I curate travel based on the destination you want to visit, the things you want to see, and your overall travel preferences.
I add a personal touch. Instead of booking that vacation package online you “think” might be good for you, we talk it through to make sure I’m curating a vacation that’s perfect for you.
I bring my experience to the table. Online forums and Google reviews can be notoriously skewed, but when we work together on your vacation you’re getting vetted information .
I have been traveling with my children (including young twins) for many years. I am a pro at planning trips for multi-generational families and families who travel with small children.

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.

We have now visited Walt Disney World several times and been able to visit Disneyland as well. We also enjoy cruising.

My name is Kaitlyn Harper and I am twenty-three years of age. I absolutely love Disney World as evidenced by the more than fifty trips I have taken there, starting when I was seventeen months of age. My mother even took me to Disneyland to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2005. It would give me great pleasure to be able to help guests plan their trips so as to get the most they can out of their adventure. I have great information about Disney, and I would love to share it with others. I am already planning a trip for my daughter in a few months, who was just born in January, 2018!
I’m Stacey. I am mother to 3 princesses. Vacations and family memories are very important to our family. I have been to Disney World more times than I can remember, and have explored Universal Studios, as well. My first trip to Disney World was at age 6, and I have been frequenting ever since.
Disney is my families’ favorite place to vacation. We have traveled with our family and in large groups of all ages, including an infant and great grandparents. I look forward to assisting others in getting the most out of their magical experience.
All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney
My love of Disney started while I was a Cast Member. I love planning Disney vacations almost as much as I love taking them! I truly believe that planning is the key to having a magical experience. I visit Walt Disney World at least once a year and I have enjoyed all types of adventures including special events such as the Halloween and Christmas parties and behind-the-scenes tours. As a mother and grandmother, my travel group has included Disney fans of all ages so I have experience planning trips that appeal to a wide range of interests. I’m very excited to help you plan a vacation full of magical Disney moments
Since I was little, I’ve had a love for Disney and the bug for travel. I’ve always felt the importance of travel through the many ways in which you learn about yourself and those around you, and I am so blessed to extend my own knowledge and experience from my personal adventures on to others. I love getting to know my guests and understanding the ways in which I can make their vacations and memories magical. We may not always remember the small details of every year of our life, but we will always remember the special memories made while on vacation with our loved ones.
Hello! I am so excited to put my experience, knowledge, and skills to work for you! I would love to help you create the wonderful memories that I have!
I am a mid-western girl, a wife, and soccer mom of 3. A graduate of IU, I am a former teacher and stay-at-home mom for the last 14 years. I had never been to Walt Disney World as a child. After hearing about the wonderful vacations a good friend had taken over the years, my husband and I decided to take our family…2 boys, 1 girl, plus my mother…about 10 years ago when my children were 2, 4, and 6. It was such a fun and magical (seriously, it was truly magical!) experience that we have returned to vacation there every year since! It was such a perfect place for all ages to enjoy and share together.
As my children have gotten older, our park and vacation plans are different than they used to be. This has given me so much experience planning for many age levels. I must be doing a good job because my children always want to go back!
I spend countless hours reading, researching, and planning to make our vacations as flawless as possible so that we can spend our time there simply enjoying our vacation! I know that not everyone enjoys or has the time to do that sort of planning. That’s why I am here!Let me put all of my efforts to work for you!

I began visiting Walt Disney World regularly starting in 2007 when my daughter was four years old. Our love and appreciation for Disney vacations has grown and expanded since then. With more than 25 visits to Walt Disney World since then, my family and I have learned to love the mouse and his house! Our enjoyment of Disney holidays has expanded with trips to Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris. Most recently we were fortunate enough to visit Disney Aulani on the beautiful island of Oahu!
One of the regular questions I get from family and friends is “Aren’t you bored of going there AGAIN”? The answer is always “No” because we have found new and exciting events and opportunities with each trip that really make them unique and different each time we visit. We love visiting during the Halloween and Christmas holidays and taking advantage of the other special Disney bonuses such as the Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festivals at Epcot. My husband and I also take a weekend each year to enjoy the parks without my daughter so we can enjoy the Disney experience in a new way.
Whether it’s your first time visiting Disney with young children or your 20th time, I would love to help you create a magical experience that you will remember forever!

My heart is filled with a childlike spirit. I leave the cares and worries of the world behind me. Whether I am at a park, or relaxing by the pool at my resort, or dining at one of the restaurants, I can feel the magic all around me. This feeling is contagious, so be prepared to be exposed to the magic!

We seem to add something new every time we go and know that is so much more for us to see and do.
I want to share the joy and passion with other families and make their trips as wonderful as ours have been.

I first went to Disney World when I was a small child, and now Joseph and I enjoy taking our own children. My youngest daughter took her first steps to get to Tigger at Disney! Disney is always fun, with thrilling rides, great food and awesome shopping. But, some of my favorite times at Disney are the special holiday events, such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I have also had fun there on Thanksgiving & the Fourth of July. I want to help every family to enjoy these great experiences also – there is nothing like it!
Even after years of Disney vacations, Denise still tears up during the Magic Kingdom welcome show just before the park opens for the day. While she might enjoy the rides, dining opportunities, and shows, what drew her to Disney for the first time was a book she read years ago called Be Our Guest. From cover to cover, she was entranced by the Disney philosophy and needed to see if what its president put on paper actually translated to real life in Disney World. It did, and she was hooked.
As a high school teacher, Denise’s trips have provided much-needed vacations. More often than not, she traveled alone with her two children to Orlando during school breaks. Disney always provided a place she felt safe, and as her children have grown from 4 and 9 years old to their current 22 and 18 years, their resort choices, dining choices, and activity choices have changed. For that reason, she can provide so much insight into accommodating the needs of guests at various ages and share insights into planning trips to Disney for those who need to pinch every penny to those who have larger budgets for their vacations.
With a husband who is a chef, Denise has to describe herself as a foodie, too. She loves to share dining suggestions so guests can savor their Disney experiences. And, this woman can work that meal plan to get the most out of it!
Denise also has insight into traveling with larger groups based on 13 years as a Girl Scout leader with a troop that traveled frequently, 26 years as a teacher who travels annually with teenagers, and being the eldest child in her family who often plans the location extended family get-togethers. She can share suggestions that range from resorts to dining options and everything in between. Most recently, Denise took 15 of her high school students to Disney World for a convention and planned the adventure from start to finish for her group as well as many of her fellow teachers from across the country who knew who to contact for Disney advice. Her binder of tips and tricks has become that of legion among her peers.
Let Denise help you plan a vacation of a lifetime. She can help you pull together a fabulous Disney vacation that your family will talk about for years as well as provide strategies for making the most of your trip before you go as well as during your vacation.

I love to travel! Disney Parks hold a special place in my heart. I have been vacationing in Disney World and Disneyland since my children were small and now I’m experiencing it with my grandchildren. I vacation in Disney parks several times a year. I specialize in planning family, multi-generational, and adult only trips. Yes, the grownups like to sneak away and be kids again at Disney. I have stayed in all hotel categories and eaten at almost every Disney restaurant so I can offer you first hand knowledge and suggestions I will share special Disney tips with my guests that I have learned over the years. Since joining MVP in 2016 I have broadened my travel knowledge and now can help plan your cruise and all inclusive vacations as well. I love helping people create magical memories from vacations that they will cherish for years to come.

Kristy’s love of Disney started as an almost 2 year old when she went through the Small World ride and was absolutely smitten with all the ‘babies’ on the ride. Fast forward many years (and trips) later and she got to experience almost the exact memory with her 2 year old daughter. Some of Kristy’s biggest milestones in life thus far have been experienced with the magic of Walt Disney World, she and her husband got engaged and honeymooned there, and have dubbed Disney their, “Happy Place”. As soon as they leave they start planning their next trip.
Kristy is excited to help families start planning their memories. When you enter Disney World you truly are stepping away from reality and experiencing something that is hard to even put words to. It’s an unforgettable adventure that adults and children cherish and remember in the years to come.
Although Disney is my first passion, I also can help plan vacations to Sandals/Beaches, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Universal. I love to travel and it’s a great joy to help others plan their vacations and live vicariously through their experiences. Each trip is unique and special and deserves it’s own set of unique plans!

She particularly loves exploring the Disney Parks at night when all the lights are on and the parks take on a new life. Hilary has also enjoyed visiting Disneyland California several times and cruising with Disney. One of her favorite experiences was getting to visit Disneyland Paris and she is looking forward to traveling with Adventures by Disney later this year.

One of the hardest questions you could ask Sara is “What is your favorite thing about going to Disney?” Every trip is new and exciting and every trip has something to see not seen before. Disney has been a part of Sara’s life beginning at a very young age. Her Grandfather was a huge fan of all things Disney and assured every few years his grand kids experienced the excitement of the parks. Sara and her two sisters are carrying that tradition on with their children.
“One of my fondest memories is our first ride on Journey into Imagination in Epcot. I turned and asked to ride again. We did but this time we all sang along with the quickly learned song. Although the ride has changed over the years we can still ride and sing along. My preschooler knows all the words and sings it daily.”
The most recent trip to the most magical place on earth I was able to experience some details on many of the resorts and many of the character meals and table dining offered at Walt Disney World.
Having a background in theatre and being an activity director for seniors planning detailed daily happenings is something Sara prides herself on. “Sometimes its the smallest details that bring us the most joy in life and the greatest adventure.” Sara can’t wait to help begin your planning and assure your trip has as many great adventures as you can imagine and more
