Hello! My name is Tahlia Campbell. I am a wife and mother to two beautiful children. I have a four year old little boy and a brand new baby girl. They are my whole heart. I am married to the most amazing husband and father. We live in Rochester, Michigan.

Growing up in Arizona I was lucky enough to make the trip to Disneyland in California every year. I have always had a passion for all things Disney!
My passion grew even more for Disney four years ago when my son was born. The joy of bringing your children to the most magical place on earth is absolutely the BEST!

I have always dreamed of having a career involved with Disney…… And now this has come true.

I know it can be stressful to plan an unforgettable vacation. So please give me a chance to take all your worries away!

Emily Coleman

Hello my name is Emily and I have loved going to Disney as long as I can remember. Growing up I have many great memories visiting the parks with my family. This love for Disney eventually inspired me to work for the company. I have had the privilege of getting accepted for a Disney College Program in Spring 2016, and working for Whispering Canyon in the Wilderness Lodge. I loved this entire experience so much, I wanted to come back and work for the company again. I returned to work for Disney again, this time in a Professional Internship in Safety Analytics & Creative Costuming. Living next to Disney meant I had the privilege to play in the parks many, many times. I have first-hand experience at the Disney Parks year-round, from Run Disney Races to Holiday parties, there is truly something special going on at Disney in all seasons.

As you can tell, I absolutely love Disney. It is truly considered a home to me. Having lived in the Orlando area, I have lots of helpful insight on everything from leaving the Orlando Airport to arriving at your hotel room.

I cannot wait to help others have the same memorable experience I have always had at Disney!

Trisha Roberts

I have been passionate about travel my entire life. I have a wonderful husband as well as 3 sons and we travel as much as our schedule will allow. I look at every new destination as an adventure and look forward to helping you create memories that will last a lifetime.

Stephanie Lyons

I’ve been travelling to Disney for as long as I can remember, I’ve referred to it as my second home. I love everything about Disney, the way you feel when you’re there, how the cast members treat you, there really is no better experience. Which is why I took my husband there on our honeymoon (his first trip), followed by a Disney cruise! We have since been back several times and get to share Disney with our daughter. It has become her favorite vacation destination.

In addition to Disney vacations, my family and I love to travel anywhere. From cruises to guided travel, we’ve done it all. I’ve been fortunate to travel to 30 of our wonderful 50 states and I have been able to visit 8 different countries. I feel that travel is an important thing to do with your family and you will never forget those memories from family vacations! If you’re looking for a magical Disney vacation or just a vacation to make magical memories on, give me a call. I’d love to share ideas and help you plan a trip to remember!

Candy McKenzie

Hi! My name is Candy and I fell in Love with Disney during our first Family trip to Walt Disney World in 2008 for my oldest Son’s 10th Birthday. At the time we figured this would be a one time, once in a Lifetime Dream vacation. We had the most amazing vacation and we were so sad to leave. But, before the final day of our 12 Day vacation arrived we had already started planning our next trip for 2011 to celebrate our youngest Son turning “10”.

Since then, We have taken many more Family trips to Walt Disney World, Disney Land and participated in two High School Band trips during which my boys were able to march in the Magic Kingdom Parade – their ultimate Dream come true as “Drummer boys”. We have learned to leave Disney with the next trip in motion so that we do not have to leave on a sad note knowing we will be back and it is not our last trip to Disney.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a trip to Disney Land and Aulani (yes – just the two of us, No kids and it was the most Amazing Vacation). Now that our children are grown, we are looking forward to some “last minute, spontaneous trips away” to discover more of that Disney Magic and revive the “kid in both of us”.

My Dream job is now in motion to help other families make Memories that last a Lifetime by helping you plan a Once in a Lifetime Dream Vacation or perhaps a return trip to Disney to find that “Magical Moment”. I look forward to finding out what your Dreams are and what would make your vacation perfect. I want to make your vacation stress free, enjoyable and the most Magical it can be. Let me help you discover the “kid inside each of you – no matter your age” or add a touch of class, elegance or excitement that you have always desired in a vacation. This is all possible on a Disney Vacation!

Tyffany Baird

Tyffany is a true life-long Disney fanatic. When she was first born, her parents brought her home to a Disney themed nursery. She visited Disney world for the first time when she was just one year old. It’s obvious to say her childhood was full of Disney magic. Throughout the years, her parents treated her and her sisters to magical trips to Disney World frequently. Experiencing different resorts, special events, parks and dining growing up inspired her to work for the mouse herself one day.
During college, she participated in the Disney College Program where she worked inside Cinderella’s Castle as a Fairy Godmother in Training at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique. Though it was difficult to leave the most magical place on earth, Tyffany returned to Western Michigan University to complete her degree in Communications. Since then, she has had a successful career in Marketing and Event Management. Much of her career experiences, combined with her keen attention to detail makes her practically perfect in every way to plan your next vacation.

As a Mom of two, she plans trips for her own family to create those memories and experiences for her children. In many conversations discussing Disney trips with friends, acquaintances and even relatives, Tyffany couldn’t help but to notice there are many people who have expressed they would love to experience the magic but are overwhelmed and even intimidated by the Disney planning process. That’s where Tyffany’s pixie dust really sparkles! She genuinely enjoys the planning process and creating a customized vacation experience for families considering all interests and needs.

Tara Palmer-Pop

Hi! I’m Tara, and I love all things Disney! I grew up in a Disney loving home and went on to share that love with my own children. Planning vacations has always come very natural to me. After years of giving advice to friends on the tips and tricks to making the best of a Disney Vacation, I decided it was time to become a professional.

I have shared so many magical moments with my family at Disney. But one in particular stands out in my mind and reminds me that Disney is for everyone, young and old. We took my Dad on his first trip to Disney World, when he was 68 years old. I will never forget how when he stepped onto Main Street USA and saw Cinderella’s Castle for the first time, he was reduced to tears. Disney magic took his breath away that first day and he spent the rest of the week dancing with his grandkids as the parade floated by and getting his photo with every character possible! He even rode Mission Space Orange!

I truly feel that Disney has something for everyone and I would love to help make your vacation dreams come true by planning you a magical vacation.

Katy Cole

Hi! I’m Katy and I can’t wait to help you have the amazing vacation you deserve! I am a wife and proud disney momma of two young princes (boys) who are also avid Disney lovers. When I am not making magical vacations a reality for my customers, I enjoy spending time with my family in the Disney parks, going on family adventures, going on cruises, playing with my dogs, and caring for my tiny foster kittens. My love for animals is why Disney’s Animal Kingdom is 1 of my favorite places on earth, second only to Magic Kingdom of course. I take extreme pride in my customer service skills and will always put your wants and needs first. Making your vacation wishes come true is my job!

Growing up my family took a vacation to Florida every year, and this allowed me to become very familiar with the Disney World area. I was also lucky enough to learn a love of travel at a young age and have been able to go on many cruises and trips to different countries. It was these childhood experiences that taught me the amazing family bonding that happens on vacations and how the memories made last a lifetime. I am now able to take my own children on vacations and I can tell you that the look on your child’s face when they see their favorite characters is absolutely priceless. I will never forget the magic and wonder in my boys eyes on their first trip to Disney World. This lead me to want to ensure every person and family has the chance to make magical memories of their own together. It is such a blessing to me that this job allows me the privilege to make your dream vacations come true and that I can take the stress out of planning a vacation by being here to help you every step of the way.

This Disney Fairy will make your vacation as magical as you have dreamed it to be! My specialties are traveling with children of all ages, traveling with special needs guests including ASD and SPD, family adventures, relaxing family vacations, girls’ trips, and romantic couples getaways.

Carrie Klein

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” -Walt Disney

Carrie’s magic moment happened while at Disney with her daughter and granddaughter. Seeing Disney through her 3 year old granddaughter’s eyes was indeed magical and began a revived love for Walt Disney World.

She has traveled many places around the world and loves the planning of new journeys. She’s been to Walt Disney World several times in her lifetime, from an adolescent to a recent solo trip and loved every one of them, with many more to come with the other grandchildren.

She is excited and would love to help you with making magical memories.

While attending Michigan State University, Kariann worked at Walt Disney World at the Grand Floridian Resort, The Contemporary Resort, and at EPCOT through the Disney College Program. More recently, Kariann has been traveling to Walt Disney World with her husband and two beautiful children.

Ashley Smith

Hi my name is Ashley and I have lived in Michigan all my life . My husband Matt and I have 2 little boys that keeps us busy.

We love to go on family vacations and our favorite place is of course Disney World. My goal is to take the stress out of planning a vacation for you so you can enjoy just the fun part of being there in the moment.

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!

Amanda Hohf

One of the most vivid memories I have from my childhood was visiting Disney World for the 1st time and being told I was too short to ride Space Mountain. I was 5 and my older was 6 and she was tall enough to ride. As she walked into line, she turned and stuck her tongue out at me. Space Mountain has always been my favorite ride and it’s always my first ride.

Since that first trip at 5, I have visited Disney World and taken Disney cruises with my family. I have become know as the “Disney Planner” in my family and have become the person that family and friends come to for Disney information. Last year, I fulfilled one of my “bucket list” dreams…joining the Disney Vacation Club.

I look forward to sharing my love of Disney with my clients and to help them plan their dream trips.

Jenny Walter

My Disney experience starts back in 1994 with our very first trip, a prize won through Sears Roebuck & Co. We than made a yearly return to WDW from that point on. In 2000 I entered the Disney College Program working at the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom and stayed on as a seasonal employee through 2003. I hold a Mousters and Ducktorate Degree in Merchandising from Disney University.

Over the last 23 years I’ve traveled back to Walt Disney World over 40 times, either with family or friends. Back in 2006 I made a certain wish during the Wishes fireworks at the Magic Kingdom – about 18 months later I married my husband Matt who is now a Disney addict as well! We live in Grand Rapids, MI with our beagle Bella.

Recently our big trip was to the islands and getting to experience Aulani. A wonderful resort in Ko Olina on the island of O’ahu. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime and I can’t wait to go back.

Being able to help families plan their Disney vacation is so exciting for me. I have a true passion for the brand, the experience and the magic that will await you.

Areas of focus: Walt Disney World, Aulani | Disney Resort and Spa in Ko Olina, Resort & Dining Recommendations, Adult Trips.

Debra Brady

I have been a fan of Walt Disney World since it opened in Florida in 1971. My dad took me and my 7 siblings there as soon as school got out the first year it opened. Even though it was only the Magic Kingdom then, the MAGIC I felt being there was something I have never forgotten.

I have continued to go there over the years as a newlywed on my honeymoon, as a new mom, as a mom with her teenagers, and now as a Grandmother.

That MAGICAL feeling has never left me! I hope to bring that same sense of excitement to my clients as I plan their trip to all things Disney, Ocean cruises, European River cruises, or an all- inclusive resort vacation!
