Hello! I’m a mom to 3 awesome kids: ages 6, 4, and 7 months! I’m also an elementary school teacher! I guess planning things must be a true passion of mine since I make lesson plans daily and now have fallen in love with planning vacations! I love all things Disney World related! As an adult, experiencing that “so excited you can’t fall asleep” feeling like kids feel the night before Christmas is rare! Disney trips give me that exact feeling no matter how old I am. I love the process of organizing, prepping, and researching almost equally as the trip itself. I love experiencing new Disney restaurants, events, and resorts each trip. I can offer services to you that are tailored to your vision and budget! I have a lot of experience traveling with small children. Want to take a girls’ trip with friends? Looking for a romantic couple’s getaway? Let me help you start making memories. I can help snagging those hard to get fast passes and dining reservations for you among many other things! There’s always something to make each visit feel exciting! Maybe you are thinking of a cruise or another type of getaway instead this year? I would love to help you with that as well! Let me help make your dream vacation a reality!

Hi! I’m Ashlei and avid planner of all things, especially travel. My mom introduced me to a love of travel at a young age and I’ve been lucky enough to see and experience many places. I love that the sense of grandeur and the chills I get when I board a cruise ship, the care-free “leave your troubles at the door” atmosphere of all-inclusive resorts, the history, ambiance, charm, and restaurants of Europe, the magic of walking down Main Street USA, and the magical feeling of being immersed in Harry Potter’s world at Universal. In 2018 I was introduced to my newest obsession when my husband and I traveled to Iceland with Adventures by Disney. I’ve been traveling internationally since I was 12, but I was absolutely blown away by every detail of that trip and the Disney difference.
Whatever your travel dreams entail, I would
love to help you make them a reality. While every trip should be magical, planning can make the difference in a great trip and a perfect one. If I’m not on vacation, I’m dreaming about my next one. The planning phase is *almost* as much fun for me as the actual trip. Whether you’re a type A planner like me or hate everything about the process, I’d love to help you, especially in a post-covid travel world where travel advisors are going to be more essential than ever (why should you spend your vacation time dealing with a problem when I can do it for you?) Every vacation should be as unique as you are and I’m here to help craft your vacation to meet your needs. All you have to do is show up and make memories!

I am a resident of Memphis, TN. I enjoy traveling and sharing my experiences with others.
I graduated from Millington Central High School in Millington, TN and went on to graduate from The University of Memphis in Memphis, TN with a Bachelor’s or Arts.
I’m very passionate about things that interest me. When I find something new I want to learn all I can about it. I use this in my traveling by finding the best local spots to visit when I’m in a new city, whether it’s a local bar or restaurant, a historical house that you wouldn’t even know was in that city or landmarks and local artistry, I will find it.
I want to soak up as much of the local culture in an area while I’m there so that I can bring it home with me and share it.
My name is Kelley and I live in Southeast TN. My love of Disney dates back to my childhood, watching Mickey Mouse and the Mickey Mouse Club on TV. In middle school, I visited Disney World for the first time and felt the magic the moment I walked down Main Street. I knew then and there, this was the happiest place on earth!
Now as a mom, I love experiencing Disney through my boys. I’ll always remember how their eyes lit up the first time they saw Cinderella’s Castle and how excited they are now every time we visit. Every one of us has a favorite ride, experience and restaurant. There’s something for everyone. We love trying new things each trip, as well as revisiting our old favorites. We’ve been to Disney World as a family more than half a dozen times and on one Disney Cruise – each visit is better than the next!
When I’m not at Disney, I love traveling, reading and being a Soccer Mom. I love showing others how fun Disney can be and taking the stress out of planning a wonderful family vacation. Let me help you plan a magical vacation with your family full of lifetime memories!
Elizabeth has been a Disney enthusiast since she was born…her nursery was decorated in a Mickey Mouse theme! The very first book she ever read on her own as a little girl was a Donald Duck book while on her way to her first Walt Disney World trip with cousins. She has made at least 35 trips to Disney Parks in the past 20 years. She has made trips while pregnant, with newborns, with toddlers, with teenagers, chaperoning school groups, anniversary trips with just her husband, with grandparents, and even a couple of solo trips.
She has the dream of visiting all the Disney Parks worldwide…so far she’s hit Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris! Some of her favorite memories are sailing on the Disney Wonder for her honeymoon on a brand new boat, lining her two children up on the Magic Kingdom train station steps for a picture each trip to see how much they’ve grown, being part of a soft opening for Soarin’ in 2005 and declaring it the best day ever, and sitting with a Dole Whip Float on a park bench watching the Kiss Goodnight on Cinderella Castle.
Elizabeth loves helping others plan their vacations whether it be a first time trip for a family or making recommendations for seasoned Disney veterans on their next trip. She stays current on all Disney Parks news and can help you plan your next vacation with ease!

Hi, my name is Cortney Hatfield and I love all things Disney. I’m always thinking about Disney World, researching new information, and dreaming about when I can go back.
When my twins were four years old I took them on their first Disney Vacation. They are now 18! My passion for Disney World started then.

That’s when I knew I wanted to start helping people plan magical vacations.
I have traveled to Disney at different times of the year, eaten at MANY different resorts, and stayed at a variety of resorts. I have also been to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

I love planning vacations, making people smile and, of course, anything Disney.

I am an avid Disney enthusiast and traveler who lives in East Tennessee. My love for Disney began at a young age. My fondest childhood memories are those of Disney trips with my parents and grandparents. As I look back on my childhood I remember all the fun times we had not only in the Disney parks, but also at the Disney Resorts. Some of my best memories are getting stuck on a boat from Magic Kingdom to Wilderness Lodge in the rain and having to try our shoes out because they were so wet. It’s not only the things that go perfectly right that make memories, but also those moments you have no control over.
I knew as I started a family that Disney would play a special role in my children’s childhood just as it did mine. I have 3 children (10 year old boy, 5 year old girl, and 5 year old boy). We have been to Disney multiple times since their birth. I have stayed at almost every Walt Disney World Resort and I have been on 6 Disney Cruises.
When I am not traveling or planning my next vacation, I work as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
I can not wait to share the magic that Disney has brought to me and my family with yours.

Welcome! My name is Tim Byrge and I am from a small town in beautiful East Tennessee. I am married to my lovely wife Tonya and we have son named Reid. Vacations are a priority for my family. As a child, I grew up always wanting to go to Disney, but never had the opportunity. My wife and I first experienced Walt Disney World in 1999. The moment we walked through the tunnel, as we entered the Magic Kingdom, and came around the corner and seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time was beyond magical for us. We were hooked and knew that this would be a lifelong vacation destination. It was truly the most magical and memorable vacation that we have ever been on. Since that moment, I have had a passion for Disney and always been eager to learn more about Disney history.

Living in Florida for the first few years of her life, Arden was able to go to Disney World frequently when in first opened in 1971 and for a number of years thereafter! Thus begun a lifetime love of being in the “World!” Arden recalls a magical trip in 1978 with her mother and grandmother where her grandmother wore a beautiful dress and hat! She was dapper before Dapper Days were a thing. Through the 80s when Arden rocked the big hair and Epcot first opened and into the 90s when Arden took her own sweet toddlers on their first trip, Disney World has always been special to her.
Through these many years, Arden has planned trips for all types of groups: family groups of 16 with three generations, wedding anniversary trips, dance and cheer team groups and, most specially, family trips with her four children. Arden’s children are ages 12-20 now but she traveled with them at all ages: overwhelmed toddlers, princess-obsessed pre-schoolers, apprehensive elementary ages and dare-devil teenagers. She has been in the world pregnant and took a special trip back to Disney with her mother who used a scooter at the time.
Let Arden use her experience of traveling through life’s stages to help you plan your dream vacation. Need to know where a toddler can de-stress? Which restaurants serve kids something other than chicken nuggets? Where to meet a favorite princess? Which rides are appropriate for 5 year olds who are afraid of the dark? Which rides teenagers may proclaim “lame?” What are the best rides for those who have mobility issues? Call Arden!
Arden also loves to cruise! She would love to help you plan your family’s cruise vacation. Her favorite cruise was to Alaska. The majesty and beauty of that state is incredible! Love the beach? Let Arden plan your stay at the Beaches or Sandals resort!
As a former consultant at a big-four accounting firm, Arden learned to pay attention to the details. Let her use that skill so you can enjoy your vacation without worry!
