Valerie Domenech

I love to travel so much that while I’m on vacation, I’m starting to plan my next trip! Anticipating my next getaway and planning every detail of it brings me great joy. Although I absolutely love cruising, Walt Disney World is definitely my happy place. Just ask my husband and eight-year-old son when I’m practically skipping down Main Street, U.S.A. to take a picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle and get to our first FastPass attraction! Besides physically being in Disney World and experiencing all it has to offer, planning my Disney vacations is one of my most favorite things to do. Helping others plan their magical vacation, whether they choose Disney World or another destination, is a close second. There’s nothing like making memories with your friends and family that will certainly last a lifetime. It would be my pleasure to help you and yours plan those special moments that will become memories you will treasure for the rest of your lives.

I’d love to help share my passion with you. My knowledge of being a mom of three, and a wife I have searched and planned all sorts of vacations. Some have been budget based, some have been DREAMS based. But, they all share a common theme of memories! I have had a love for Disney as long as I can remember, and I now thoroughly enjoy sharing that and other vacations with my family. Through planning, vision, and organization I feel I can help you build a magical vacation that will bring you back year after year. www.facebook.com/kbmvp

Now the family has been having fun introducing Disney to the next generation! No matter how many times you visit, the magic never stops!

Dawn Larsen

My name is Dawn Larsen and I am all about making memories with the people I love. I am a wife and mother of 4. Life is busy and I have come to appreciate just how important it is for families (or couples or friends) to take a break and get away together. Relationships grow and thrive with time together and shared experiences. That’s what I love about helping clients plan their vacations. I know that I am taking the stress out of the planning stage and helping them build a foundation of memories to strengthen their bonds with the people they love. I also really enjoy the opportunity to meet and work with new people along the way. There’s nothing better than getting a mid vacation text or picture from a client and seeing the smiling faces and hearing how much they are enjoying their trip.

Our family would all agree that Disney is an absolute favorite destination. We love the energy of the parks, the top notch entertainment, the rides, the theming of the various resorts and parks, and without a doubt the food! We love that there are options for all ages. We have traveled with our kids from the toddler years to the older teen years and each visit there is magic to be found for all of us. I have also visited Disney for a couples trip and for a girls get away. It’s such a versatile destination. Whether this is your first visit or your 50th, I would love to help you discover the magic too! I can make recommendations for your specific family and their needs as we work together to make your vacation the perfect fit for your group.

Jessica Paone

I still remember my first trip to Walt Disney World at the age of 7, there was no better feeling than getting to experience the magic, attractions and everything Disney had to offer. I knew right after that trip that Disney would be a destination I would return to over and over again. I was so ready to go back that I set up a small little office in my parents walk in closest and started to plan our next trip and every trip to follow. Although I have traveled to many other countries and cities, I still find my way back to the magic. I also find myself to be a bit of a ‘foodie,’ I always enjoy booking different dining reservations and trying new quick services every time I go.

With the knowledge I have gained over the years and my experiences, I’m sure I can book you a Disney experience you’ll never forget!

Cloe Colton

Cloe’s love of Disney began on her first trip to Disney when she was six months old. Her parents took her to Disney World every other year for many years and each year her love for Disney grew more and more. When she was old enough to fund her own trips she began taking yearly trips to Disney and now often goes three-four times a year. Disney was and has always been an escape from reality for her and full of so much magic, not to mention all of the wonderful family memories! She has now converted her husband, her high school sweetheart, over to the love of all things Disney. They love planning their trips to Disney and enjoy watching Disney YouTube videos to tide them over between trips!
Cloe has always loved talking to people about Disney and helping plan their trips for as long as she can remember. She loves helping them find the perfect restaurant and experiences to make their vacation so special. On her own trips to Disney she loves to check out the new restaurants and experiences and in her downtime she loves to read about all of the new things happening at Disney and staying up to date! Cloe also loves traveling to places outside of Disney as well. She has been to Maui and Oahu, Hawaii (stayed at Aulani), Manchester and London, England, Paris, France (Disneyland Paris), the Dominican Republic and much more. She hopes that her wealth of Disney knowledge can help you plan the most magical vacation you have ever been on.

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!

Kelly Hilary

“ If you can dream it, you can do it.” ~ Walt Disney

Hi! My name is Kelly Hilary. Disney has always been a huge part of my life. The first time I experienced Walt Disney World was when I was four years old. I can still remember the excitement of walking under the Main Street train station and then seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time! To this day I still get that magical feeling.

My love for Disney has grown over the years. With my husband and two children we vacation as often as we can to Walt Disney World. I can say this is our absolute favorite vacation spot without a doubt. Where else could you visit different countries around the world, drop thirteen feet in an elevator, or see storm troopers and princesses all in one day?!

By staying at the many resorts, finding exciting new venues for my children, and eating at the many delicious restaurants, I have gained a lot of knowledge over the years.

I love planning my own vacations to Walt Disney World. I would be thrilled to help you plan your next vacation by sharing what I know, and help you make your vacation the most magical and memorable it can be!

Wendy Moore

I am the mother of 4 amazing kids, 3 boys and a princess, and I have an incredibly supportive and Disney-loving husband as well! I’m also a nurse and a nursing professor.
I took my first trip to Disney World in October 2014. It was going to be the one and only trip for my family so I did my research and planned everything to the T over a period of 10 months. I wanted to give my family the true Disney experience and experience all that we possible could in a weeks time. The effort was worth it and it was truly a magical experience. Just one trip and we were hooked! When we returned home I immediately started planning our next trip. Fast forward 4 years and we are now visiting Disney at least twice per year. To us, it truly feels like home.
Some of my family’s very best memories have been made at Disney World. I love planning vacations for other families so they can make incredible memories as well. I would love to plan your Disney vacation based on your family’s interests and help you experience your own Disney magic!

Amanda Downing

Hi! My name is Amanda and I’m excited to part of the Magical Vacation Planner team! My passion for Disney began when I went on my first family trip when I was 9 years old. Since then, I’ve gone back over 10 times and created the most magical memories with my family and friends!

My goal as a personal vacation planner is to ensure my clients have the best vacation to fit their needs without the hassle!

My most memorable Disney vacation was in 2012 for my honeymoon. We experienced many things we have always wanted to try such as the Wild Africa Trek Safari, Backstage Tour of Animal Kingdom and Behind the Seeds at EPCOT. Our favorite part of the trip was having VIP seating for all the nightly firework shows – including a private cruise to watch IllumiNations from the canal between France and England at EPCOT!

My family and I travel to Disney World at least once a year! There is nothing more exciting than walking off the Disney transportation for the first time and laying your eyes on Cinderella’s Castle. Or walking down Main Street USA and taking in all the magical energy and nostalgia. I have a passion for detail and planning which makes this the perfect job for me. I’m currently attending a local college for Hospitality and Tourism. My knowledge from this program and my extensive travel experience help me plan magical vacations all year long.

Veronika Omole

I’m a mother of two, that has been enjoying the magic of Disney since 1989 when my family first went to Walt Disney World. However, my love for the Disney Magic skyrocketed after my first trip to Tokyo Disneyland in 2003. This was my first international Disney vacation and it still holds a special place in my heart as my all time favorite Disney Experience.

Since 2003, I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled to at least one Disney Park at least annually. In 2015 I placed traveling to every Disney Park on my bucket list and by August of 2016, my family and I was able to accomplish seeing all six parks around the world.

In addition to my love of Disney, I’m an avid world traveler that has been to the Caribbean, Canada, Hawaii, China, Japan, West Africa, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany.

It would be my pleasure to be your travel guide!

Carly Reynolds

Carly’s love for all things Disney began with childhood trips, but visiting with her children brought out a whole new world of enjoyment!

Jennifer Whitehead

I have always loved Walt Disney World. From the time I was a little girl up until just recently. There is just something about walking into Magic Kingdom for the first time or the 100th time.

I had the thrill of taking my 3 girls to Disney World and it is such an experience to see Disney through their eyes. To watch the faces light up is truly magical. We have been to Disney for Birthdays, Anniversaries and even long weekends. We were able to catch up with each other and laugh while having the time of our lives. When asked about vacations, people always say “you going to Disney”….I respond “YES”, because there is always something new to see. I have always helped and planned vacations for friends.

Are you thinking about a trip to WALT DISNEY WORLD….but don’t know where to start….from were to stay, and dining and flights ???? Well, I can be the Fairy Godmother you have been looking for…as a Magical Vacation Planner, I can make you trip truly magical.
Because unlike Cinderella…this offer doesn’t expire at MIDNIGHT!!!

“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world…But it takes People to make the dream a reality…….Walt Disney”!!!

Andrea Coviello

They say some opportunities won’t present themselves until we are ready to receive them. I was presented the opportunity to become an MVP at a time that couldn’t have been more perfect. Now I get to wake up and do something I am truly passionate about, every single day. I’ve never looked back!
The emotions I feel when planning a Vacation, Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, or any vacation cannot be felt with anything else I would ever do. I truly put my heart into helping every single Client and cherish the joy it brings to them!
If there is anything we have learned from the last few years alone, it’s that time goes by too quick. I love being able to take the stress out of the planning process for my Clients so they can sit back and enjoy the magic of memories!

It’s no secret I love all things “Disney.” As a child, I looked forward to yearly trips with my family. Those happy memories grew into adulthood, when I had the opportunity to take part in three different internships at Walt Disney World during my college years.

I now have two children of my own and they have been to Walt Disney World and The Disney Cruise more times than people believe! We have even built a trip around a Family Disney Wedding.

I am thrilled to me able to share my experiences and help others plan their magical memories. It has always been one of my favorite things to do.
