Cariss grew up loving Disney movies and was fortunate to visit Disneyland a few times as a child and teenager. After moving to Southern California in 2000 to attend college, her PASSION for Disney really began when she started working at the Disneyland Resort. Cariss worked for “The Mouse” a total of 7 years, three and a half of those years being in Guest Relations as a VIP Tour Guide. As a former Cast Member, she helped countless families have memorable magical vacations. Even after she left the resort to pursue a degree in Culinary Arts, Cariss continued to stay up to date on what was new and exciting at Disney. Her friends and family consider her their go-to resource on all things Disney.
Cariss married her very own “Prince Charming”, Anthony, this past fall and spent countless hours planning their honeymoon to Walt Disney World. They had such a wonderful time; they decided to become Premier Annual Passholders. They sneak away from Central California down to Anaheim as often as they can to visit Disneyland to see what’s new and take advantage of their passholder perks.
When Cariss saw the opportunity to turn her expertise and passion for Disney in to a career as a Magical Vacation Planner, she couldn’t wait to help others plan unforgettable vacations. She knows that planning a Disney vacation can often be stressful and overwhelming, and she wants to help you with all the details, from your accommodations to entertainment suggestions. As a chef and foodie, one of her favorite things to help you with is your dining plans and restaurant suggestions!
Whether you want a romantic get-away, multi-generational family vacation, or a fun bachelorette trip for the girls, Cariss can tailor your dream vacation to your needs and wants. No trip is too big or small. She looks forward to getting to know about you and your family and providing you with personalized VIP service.
