Hi, my name is Kelly, and I am a Disney Fanatic! I was born and raised in Dover, DE, but now reside in Medford New Jersey. I have been married to my husband, Daniel, for 11 years, and we have two fantastic children; Philip, 10 and Madalyn (Maddy), 8.
I have always been passionate about Disney, and I am so excited for the opportunity to plan your next magical vacation! I have been visiting Walt Disney World ever since I was a baby, and I still feel those magical butterflies visiting as an adult. Now, as a mother, I love being able to give my own children those wonderful memories of Mickey and his pals. From the food, to the rides, and character interactions, our experiences have never been less than amazing, and I truly look forward to helping you make those memories!
Disney World is more than just a vacation for my family and myself. It’s a chance to escape the real world, and get lost in magic and imagination. My very best memories are from Disney, and I know my husband and kids feel the same way. I look forward to talking about Disney with you, and I can’t wait to help you plan your magical vacation to Disney World!
Disney has long been one of my biggest passions. I love all things Disney, from the movies to the parks. I grew up on Disney and to this day I am still a “Disney Kid.” I have visited the parks over 30 times; I have done solo trips, 20 people family trips, Run Disney trips, and romantic getaways. When it comes to planning, I have done it all (well most). Some of my happiest times and fondest memories have been in Disney Parks. I hope to create MORE memories with my wife and 2 daughters! When it comes to family, friends, and colleagues I am known as the “Disney Guy,” I have helped many plan vacations over the years. I hope to help many more guests over the years share in some of the magic I have experienced!
Hi! My name is Deanna and I would love to help you plan your next vacation!
In am an avid traveler who’s favorite place to travel to is Disney World. My first trip to Disney World was when I was 19. At the time I thought I was a Disney Fanatic. I fell head over heels in love with the park. While, that first experience was only three days it was enough to hook me for life. Disney has become such a big part of our lives. It’s where we got engaged, and spent our honeymoon. My love of Disney grows with each trip we take.
Since meeting my husband my love of traveling has really taken off. It started off with little day trips to Maine and grew into Disney vacations, cruising adventures, Dreams Resort stays, and traveling the world. The best part of all these adventures are the memories we make with family and friends.
Over the years I have become the go to person in our family and circle of friends when it comes to vacations especially Disney World vacations. I enjoy vacations and planning them so much I thought I would offer my knowledge and love to you. This is why I decided to join Magical Vacation Planner.
I am excited to get started on this journey of being a Magical Vacation Planner and would be happy to help you plan your next magical trip!
My love of Disney started when my Senior Class Trip was to Disney World. I shared that love with my family and friends and have been taken more than 30 trips! I have been married for over 30 years and have 2 adult sons. We have taken trips to Disney almost every year since we bought Disney Vacation Club in 2000. My adult children still love to go to Disney!
My husband and I have done adult trips, trips with just our family, trips with friends too. We enjoyed a Disney Cruise with our children and have been exploring other cruise lines too.
I love traveling to other destinations too. I have taken trips to, Seattle, California, Mexico and the Caribbean. I have been to Disneyland and was lucky enough to enjoy a meal at Club 33.
I continue to expand my travel agent skills and have completed training for Disney, Universal, Virgin Voyages, AMA Waterways and Carnival Cruise lines.
I look forward to discovering many more destinations through planning your trips and some more of my own.
Hello vacationers! My name is Celeste and I love to travel, especially to Disney World! Let me tell you a little about myself. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Mike since 2005. We have two amazing kids, Michael & Macie and one fur baby, our Cocker Spaniel, named Bentley. Disney is just so magical that my family and I bought into the Disney Vacation Club in 2013 and then again in 2019, our “home” resorts are the Grand Floridian Villas and Copper Creek! We also are Disney annual passholders and travel to Disney World about 3-4 times a year.
I’ve been to Disney World over 20 times and I’ve stayed at almost every Disney Resort including the Disney villas. I’ve been to all of the Disney parks and just love each and every one of them. When I go to Disney I love to experience all the different restaurants in the parks and the resorts. We also love to relax and spend some time by the pool too! My favorite time of the year to visit Disney is at Christmas time, we love to see all the beautiful decorations and you can really feel the magic in the air!
I would love to help you plan your vacation of your dreams!! I also have been on major cruise lines and have traveled to the islands and Sandals so I’ve got you covered! Let the memories begin, I’d love to be your guide on your future travel adventures!
Thank you in advance and have a MAGICAL DAY! Celeste

Jenn has always enjoyed the magic and excitement of Disney. Her passion grew deeper after a trip to Walt Disney World with her boyfriend. From that moment on, her life was changed. Whenever they could get time off from work they were Disney bound, and when they got engaged, they realized there was no better place to celebrate their love than at their favorite place. In 2017 they exchanged their vows at the beautiful Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
For Jenn, half of the fun of going to Disney is the planning process itself: scouting for the best resort deals, picking the perfect FastPass+ reservations, deciding which park to visit each day, making dining reservations, and of course, choosing the perfect Disney outfits for the trip!
To be a Disney travel planner with Magical Vacation Planners is a dream come true for her. Let her help you plan your next magical vacation!
I first fell in love with Disney as a child while vacationing with my family. I returned to Disney and Universal on our honeymoon and have returned with my own family several times. As a massive fan of The Harry Potter series, I couldn’t get enough of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios!
I am so excited to be a part of something truly magical! I’m not just talking Disney; I’m also talking about taking the headache and stress out of planning your spectacular vacation! After recently retiring from my retail business after 26 years I could not shake the need to continue to make those personal connections. I missed helping customers whose purchase created a memory, showed love, and created traditions. The shop was built on family traditions, knowing our customers’ needs and although we were a destination shop, we perfected personal shopping. I will be taking that ability to make your vacation perfect too. I am the advocate for “it’s all in the details”, and I thrive on details!
I absolutely love travelling and now know how to make getting thru TSA a breeze! (Hint, it’s all in the planning and the details!)
I have been helping families make memories for over 26 years, let me help you create lifetime memories for your family too.

Hi my name is Heather Melfi. My husband and I are very seasoned Disney travelers. Through my childhood my family would go to Walt Disney World every year for vacations. Before my husband and I were married we traveled to Disney World together, knowing then that we both had a profound love of Disney Parks and travel. We are in the process of planning a family trip to the Disneyland Resort very soon. Now with our own little girl, who herself has been there 3 times, we get to share our experiences with her. I have been to Disney World as adults without children, pregnant, and with small children so all instances are covered. I look forward to sharing our love of Disney Magic and Walt Disney World and putting all our passion and knowledge into creating memorable experiences for you and your family.
I visited Disney a couple times when I was younger but it wasn’t until 2009 when I went back with my husband that I fell in LOVE with Walt Disney World. I have been back every year since. Most recently I introduced my 2 girls, who are 4 and 3 to Disney and love it just as much as I do. Disney is a place where I can let go, have fun and be a kid again. I have also experienced Disneyland, California Adventure and Disney’s Aulani.
My love for Disney will help make your vacation as Magical as they come. Let me plan your next vacation.

There’s no place in the world that Megan feels more at home than the Disney World Resort! Each time the Magical Express pulls through Disney’s gates, she always feels as if nothing in the real world exists.
Joining MVP helped Megan fulfill a dream of planning Disney vacations—and she can’t wait to help you plan yours. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, she knows you can work together to create some REAL Disney magic! Megan has experience helping many different types of people plan their Disney vacations—families with young children, families with older children, couples and groups.
Megan is a daughter, sister, wife, and mommy to a big Disney-loving family! 1992 marks the year of her first trip. Since then, she’s traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort approximately 40 times, celebrating many family vacations and other special moments including performing with her dance troupe on the America Gardens Theatre stage in Epcot in 1994, commemorating New Year’s Eve with her husband in 2007, and her bachelorette party during Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival in 2015.
In addition, she’s also set sail with Disney Cruise Line, run five runDisney races, visited Disneyland, stayed at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii (4x!), and kayaked with the dolphins at Disney’s Hilton Head Island. You can follow her adventures on Instagram at @mvpmegan or Facebook at facebook.com/mvpbymegan.
Megan believes there’s no better way to experience Disney than through the eyes of your child. At 21 months, her son Cooper has been to Disney World twice and already cruised with the Mouse! She’ll always remember his first haircut at Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street and the way his eyes lit up with amazement at the parade and the animals outside of his balcony at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village.
I have always had a passion for turning concepts into reality. Since I started working with Magical Vacation Planner I have been able to help my clients make dream vacations into unforgettable memories. During the pandemic when traveling came to a halt, I went to work educating myself on all of the vendors, locations, and policies to better serve my clients. My job starts from our first conversation and doesn’t end until you are back home. I am there with you every step of the process providing as much or as little assistance, as you like. The biggest compliment any client can give me is a referral and I am happy to say referrals are exactly how my business grew. Referrals to me mean that not only did I meet the expectations but they were satisfied enough to put their name on the line with a friend, colleague, or family member referring me. I strive to not only meet your expectations but exceed them. So let me handle the stress while you have the fun! Call me today and let’s get started.

A Disney girl at heart, I love to plan Disney vacations introduce families to the magic of Walt Disney Word Resort and Disney Cruise Line. Disney Vacations are incredible, magical adventures where you create memories to last a lifetime. As wonderful as a Disney vacation is, however, the planning process can seem overwhelming. Adding to the complexity are the newly implemented procedures and programs, like Disney Genie +.
Every travel group has their own individual needs, wants, preferences, and tastes. I work with each family to arrange a Disney Vacation that is tailored just for them. With personal insights, updates from my network of Disney travel enthusiasts, and tips and hacks acquired over the years, I make sure that each client has a Disney vacation experience that meets their needs, exceeds their expectations, and fits within their budget.
