Jennifer E. Dhuse

Hello and Thanks for reading my bio. My name is Jen, and I love all things Disney. My love for Disney started as a child when my single Mom would take myself and my two siblings to Disney each summer, while there we would go down to visit our father. But really the trip for us was family time at Walt Disney World. My love of Disney continued over into adulthood, I was actually hired in College to be a lifeguard through the Disney College program, but at the last minute I stayed back for a boy. But that didn’t stop my love for Disney either, instead I have shared my love with my three children and husband. My youngest is 10, and he has been around 12 times. We’ve stayed everywhere from Pop Century to the Grand Floridian and everything in between. My husband and I were lucky enough to win an Adventures by Disney trip to London & Paris in 2009.

So that is enough about my love for Disney lets talk about how I can help you!! Whether this is your first trip or your 20th I want to help make the most out of your vacation, from helping you get those amazing reservations you’ve been dreaming about, to the fast passes for those sometimes hard to get on rides and of course most importantly to making life long memories with your family and friends.

I look forward to working with you!!!

Robby Parker

My name is Robby Parker and my family, and I love everything Disney! I am a high school math teacher by day with over 30 years’ experience, but I am always thinking about our next trip to Disney World! I reside in Asheville North Carolina. I am married with two children, Grace and Emma. My love for Disney started many years ago when my wife and I took our youngest daughter to Disney for the first time. I was able to see the wonderment and magic of Disney through my daughter’s eyes and that’s when I fell for Disney World hook, line, and sinker! My family travels to Disney World several times a year, and each trip is just as magical as the first. Over the years, vacation planning, especially to Disney World and Universal, has become somewhat of a passion of mine. Let me help you and your family discover the Magic of Disney by helping you plan your most magical vacation ever!

Megan Curle

I have enjoyed a lifelong love of travel and creating memories with family and friends. Having the opportunity to become a Magical Vacation Planner felt like a wonderful chance to share my passion for travel with others. Because I have been fortunate enough to enjoy travel experiences all over the United States and abroad, I would love to share my knowledge with you, to design the vacation that meets your vision for that once-in-a-lifetime memory that you can share with your loved ones forever.

In addition to a love for travel, I also adore all things Disney. My first trip to Walt Disney World was at the age of eight, and I was instantly hooked! I have visited the Disney Parks over the last 28+ years every chance that I get, sailed aboard Disney Cruise Line, and was fortunate enough to be a Cast Member at Disney’s Animal Kingdom through the Disney College Program. My love for Disney has only continued to grow now that I watch my own children experience all the Magic it has to offer.

I look forward to getting to know you, and using my passion for travel and Disney to help you plan the trip that you have been dreaming of. Regardless of the size of your travel party, or your budget, I would love to help you find the right vacation for you and to help make your magical vacation dreams come true!

Kris McGrath

I have been with Magical Vacation Planner for 3 years and have loved every minute of helping people make their vacations dreams come true. It is so rewarding being able to take the stress of planning off of their shoulders and allowing them to just enjoy their vacation worry free.
I have 3 children, 15 year old twin girls and a 13 year old son. Our favorite trips to take together are to Disney World and Universal. Just seeing the pure excitement and joy on their faces every time we go is priceless.

Erin Burns

I believe that there is nothing more valuable than the memories we make. Vacations allow us to step away from our busy lives, reconnect with our loved ones and create magical, life-long memories. I have turned my love for Disney and traveling into a passion for helping my clients plan and organize their dream vacations. There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to vacations! As your personal travel advisor, I will take time to get to know you and what your idea of a perfect vacation is. I combine knowledge from personal experiences and ongoing training to help make your dreams a reality and to ensure that the planning process is as stress-free as possible.

I have fond memories of traveling to Walt Disney World as a child and I continued to take trips as I grew older with friends, my husband and now as a family with our two children. Nothing quite compares to the feeling of experiencing Disney through your children’s eyes. I will never forget the first time my son watched the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom and seeing the pure joy and excitement he felt seeing all of the characters in real life right in front of him, or watching my daughter’s eyes light up at the sight of the fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle.

Not only do I love all things Disney but I also love to travel. I have visited many different all-inclusive resorts, experienced multiple cruise lines on cruises to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska, traveled many times to Europe, explored the Canadian Rockies on a guided train tour, and enjoyed dozens of trips throughout the U.S.

You will often find me at Walt Disney World or Universal, on a cruise or off exploring a new destination. I am fortunate to be able to travel frequently to not only provide my family with new experiences, but also to expand my knowledge on various destinations in order to provide the best service to my clients.

I firmly believe that happiness comes not only from traveling, but even from just having a vacation to look forward to! Where will your next adventure take you? I specialize in Disney, Universal, cruises, all-inclusive resorts, and family travel.

Melissa Dixon

Melissa has loved Walt Disney World since she was a little girl experiencing the parks with her family. She has celebrated many events at Disney over the years and is experienced in traveling with young children and now teenagers.

Some of her favorite trips have been on the Disney Cruise Line. She loves the service and attention to detail you will find from the Disney Cruise Line Staff. Her goal is to travel on all the Disney Cruise Line destinations.

Melissa will be glad to assist you with your Magical Vacation!

Tiffany Brown

Throughout my life, Disney has been a place of magic and awe. I could never describe the excited feeling I get when looking at Cinderella’s Castle. Many of my happiest childhood memories occurred at Walt Disney World. As an adult, my love for Disney still glows bright. In 2016, I got engaged in front of Cinderella’s Castle. I want to share the Disney Magic with others. I want to help children experience the Disney dream, couples experience the romance, and adults experience the joy of being able to become a kid again. I became a Disney planner with a hope of having some Disney in my life every day. In addition to being a Magical Vacation Planner, I am also a nurse.

David Winans

David began his journey with Disney as a child, taking multiple vacations with family. Ever since those first visits, he has had a passion and excitement for all things Disney! Now having two young daughters, he has been able to see the Disney magic through their eyes! Seeing your children light up at Disney is an experience to last a lifetime!

Some of David’s fondest memories of Disney magic have been eating at Cinderella’s Royal Table, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and his daughter’s makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!

Becoming a Magical Vacation Planner was the ideal opportunity for David combining his passion for Disney with his enthusiasm for trip-planning! Whether it be a quick stay or a multi-week vacation, David would love to help you make your next visit a memorable one!

ChetPaila Shaw

Retired Navy Seabee Chief who first visited Walt Disney World in 1978 and Tokyo Disneyland in 1983, had the pixie dust rejuvenated in her through her son’s first Magical Experience at Walt Disney World in 2012.
My family loves everything Magical and is constantly on the lookout for new experiences with Disney; in or around the theme parks, water parks, resorts, transportation, Extra Magic adventures and dining excursions.
Disney Cruise Line extended her novice seafaring knowledge onboard the cruise ship ‘Fantasy’s’ inaugural 11-Night Southern Caribbean cruise and motivated the landlubbers to book a Star Wars Day At Sea 7-Night Caribbean Cruise as well as a second 11-Night Cruise on the ‘Fantasy’.
Blessed and grateful, she makes an annual Disney Christmas/New Year’s visit and has called home to Disney All-Star Movies and Pop Century value resorts, Caribbean Beach moderate resort(before renovations and during renovations), and has relied on the military resort on Disney property for accommodations and tickets .

Planes, Amtrak Autotrain and Automobiles have gotten her to the Magic Kingdom, her most favorite theme park.

This “Celebration Conceiver” looks forward to bringing you to your Magical Dreams.

Sending Motivating Magic your way, My Friend!

Autumn Lam

I’m a busy mom of three and in between school functions and soccer tournaments I love traveling, and experiencing new places and cultures.

I would devote my spare time to budgeting and planning our family trips, then helping my close friends and offering advice on ways to save. One day my friend encouraged me to take the leap and become a travel advisor. So, in 2018 I applied with Magical Vacation Planner and have never been happier!

I specialize in helping families create magical memories that last a lifetime. Whether it’s a couples getaway to Mexico, a family cruise or a trip to Disney, I do it all! My expertise is planning Disney Resort vacations and Virgin Voyages, but I also book and plan Universal, almost all major cruise lines and all-inclusive resorts.

I believe life is better with your toes in the sand or at least your next vacation on your calendar!

Ashley and Chris Stroud

I have always found so much joy in planning vacations for our family and have loved making unforgettable memories with our own children. I decided to turn that love into a passion, being able to help others make those same memories. As your Personal Vacation Advisor, it is my job to help keep your vacation planning process as stress free as possible. From start to finish, I am here to help you plan the perfect getaway. Whether it be a family trip, adults only, a special celebration or just because, I can help you navigate the ins and outs of your preferred destination. No vacation is too big or too small. From week long getaways to weekend getaways, I am ready to help!

I have wonderful memories of traveling to Walt Disney World together, but my favorite memory was when we took our first born for her very first trip! Her eyes lit up during the fireworks, she giggled with every princess she met and danced in Epcot through World Showcase. She may have been too young to remember it, but we have those memories to last a lifetime. When it comes to travel, I believe that having a vacation to look forward keeps everyone happy. It certainly does for us!

Not only do I love traveling to Walt Disney World and other theme parks such as Universal Orlando, but I also enjoy traveling to multiple other destinations closer to home such as Pigeon Forge, TN, Williamsburg, VA, Hilton Head Island, SC, Savannah, GA and so many other destinations. My first hand experience and continued training allows me to better serve you and help you with all of your vacation needs across the board. I also specialize in All-Inclusive Resorts and Cruising!

There are so many ways that I can help you add even more pixie dust to your magical vacation that I can’t wait to share with you. Let’s plan that vacation!

Melanie Dowd

Hello! I’m Melanie and one thing I absolutely love, is going on vacations to Disney! Now I want to share that magic with you by planning the most amazing vacation, designed specifically for you and your family. I have worked in the customer service industry for over 22 years. I take pride in helping my customers and working hard to make sure everyone is always satisfied.
My love for Disney began when I was 4 and my parents first took my sister and I. I will never forget riding the boat over to the Magic Kingdom and my first sight of Cinderella’s Castle. I still make sure to ride the boat every time and revel in that same feeling of amazement. We then continued to visit every other year, until I was old enough to go on my own. I now visit Disney twice a year with my own 2 little girls. I always love to see the excitement on their faces when we arrive at the most Magical Place on Earth.
I am also an avid runner and have participated in multiple runDisney events, including the Dopey Challenge.
I look forward to working with you and your family in planning a magical vacation full of Pixie Dust!

Melissa Shaheen

Melissa didn’t encounter the Disney Magic until she was 43 and had teenagers and twin toddlers. She planned to go once (spoiler alert – she was HOOKED) – but has returned many times! The twin toddlers are now teenagers and the Magic continues to enchant the entire family. She has stayed in Budget, Moderate and Deluxe resorts, and firmly believes that everyone should have the same Magical experience, regardless of their budget. Melissa has been planning Disney trips for years, and loves to help other people feel, understand and embrace the Magic. She has planned trips for groups of over 75 people, and for parties of 2-4. No group is too big, nor too small. She and her family are Annual Passholders and will be in The World at least 6 times this year. She loves to sprinkle Pixie Dust and wants everyone to feel the Magic in their hearts. She’d love to put all of her experience to work helping you plan and execute the most perfect vacation of your life. No detail is too small, no Sorcerer’s Stone will be overlooked. Melissa keeps up to speed on all things Disney daily – and would love to help plan your Magical Stay, including your Dining and FastPass+. Feel free to reach out to her for a free quote – she’d love to help you feel The Disney Magic.

Tami Munson

Planning a magical Disney vacation takes a close second right behind visiting the parks for Tami. Her love for Disney began at an early age where she would watch Disney movies on repeat and sang along with every soundtrack in her room, the car, and wherever else she could take her cassette tapes with her! Even as a child, she hoped that one day she could have Disney implemented into her job.

Tami loves to visit the parks with her husband and two boys, and more times than not, her parents and sister come along on their Disney adventures! Tami is quite knowledgeable on how to maneuver the parks with a larger group and always makes sure there is something for everyone in her party to enjoy. Her favorite thing in the parks besides the rides? Eating! She likes to make a list of things she must eat on every trip.

Tami also discovered her love for runDisney events when she ran her first half marathon at the 10th Anniversary of the Disneyland Half Marathon! She says that there’s just something about running through the Disney parks that actually makes running fun. With her sister as her race partner, she is constantly looking to see if she can fit another runDisney event into her schedule.

Allison Spruill

Allison has been vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort since she was five years old. Along with childhood family trips, she’s also traveled as part of a large group of teenagers, as a young adult with friends, with her husband on a couple’s getaway, and as part of large family trips with multiple generations together. Her most magical memories have come from experiencing Disney Parks with her own husband and children. Allison’s children have grown up vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort too, traveling as infants through their current young adult ages, so she’s experienced what’s involved when planning trips with each of these age groups. Their family has stayed in all resort categories – Value, Moderate, and Deluxe – so she can help you find just the right fit for your family. Along with Walt Disney World Resort, her family loves sailing on Disney Cruise Line! Disney Cruise Line is the perfect way to relax after the hustle and bustle of Walt Disney World, so you may have the best of both vacations! As a Platinum Castaway Club member, Allison has experienced many Disney Cruise sailings with a variety of itineraries and has the first-hand knowledge to assist you with your own Disney Cruise.

Allison has been with MVP since 2015. During this time she has expanded her travel expertise with additional cruise lines including Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, Virgin Voyages, Princess Cruises, and Celebrity Cruises. Allison enjoys cruising because it allows guests to visit multiple destinations while experiencing the ship’s activities, entertainment, and delicious dining options and only unpack once! Alaskan cruise itineraries are her absolute favorite!

Since joining MVP, Allison has had the opportunity to vacation and learn more about Universal Parks & Resorts and all it offers to guests as well. While it’s a fabulous destination for Harry Potter fans and thrill seekers, Allison’s favorite Universal experience was taking her dinosaur-loving nephew to explore Camp Jurassic at Universal’s Islands of Adventure!

Allison has also stayed at all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica and toured many properties in those countries as well. She’s able to assist guests in selecting the resort that best matches what they dream of experiencing by using her personal knowledge to recommend properties rather than just online images and descriptions.

Allison hopes to help sprinkle pixie dust on your family’s vacation to make your own magical dreams come true!
