Libby Leust

My name is Libby Leust and I am from Clive, Iowa! I was recently married to my Prince Charming. One of our favorite things to do together is to travel! We have been to a lot of major cities in the United States and a few in Mexico. We have been to Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City, Boston, Cape Cod, Salem, Hampton Beach, Seattle, Branson, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Miami, Clearwater, Key West, Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Cocoa beach and my all time favorite destination: Disney World! I have been to Disney World 31 times in my life. It started when I was two and we have been actively going since! I know a lot of fun tidbits from restaurants, hidden mickeys, pin trading to resorts, Disney Springs and so so much more.

Shannon Lesan

Hi! My name is Shannon Lesan and I here to help you create magical memories! I grew up visiting Disney World and Universal Studios annually. I have seen countless movies, read numerous books, and can answer all your history questions about Disney! Now as an adult, I surround myself with things that make me happy, such as Disney! I transformed my husband into a Disney lover by planning a trip for my family. He could not believe how easy everything was for him, being a guest. He was able to show up and enjoy himself! Since he grew to love Disney, we sailed on the Disney Dream for our honeymoon. My family recognized my passion, organization, and energy into planning trips that I needed to share with others!

I am here to make you have a stress-free trip and enjoy the magical details that Disney has to offer. I am here to listen, plan, organize, and get you excited for your next trip!

Jennifer Retzlaff

Jennifer is a wife and mother of two teens who love traveling as much as she does. Her passion for Walt Disney World began in 6th grade when she visited with her family for the first time. 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. She and her husband are both teachers so they have become experts on navigated travel during spring break, summer, and holidays. 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.
