“A dream is a wish your heart makes.” This classic Disney motto represents my personal mission statement, the fuel to my passion that invests my whole heart into my family, friends, and career. My name is Tera Stump, and I am a proud wife to a Disney-loving husband and a 2-year-old princess-in-training. Together, the three of us consider Disney to be our home, a place where we can embrace the magic that can only be found on Disney property. Based out of Ohio, I am an avid flier and try to take my family to Disney at least five times a year. Being labeled an “insatiable kidult” is one of the biggest compliments that I can receive! I am also an English teacher to juniors and seniors in high school and am proud to incorporate my passion for Disney in any way possible. Working with children and understanding their perspectives has taught me so much in my teaching career.
I have been blessed to have the opportunity to travel to Disney World and Disneyland over 35 times! These trips have given me the knowledge to understand the hidden secrets and knowhow of when to be where for great views and low wait times. My favorite park is the Magic Kingdom because of the mixture of classic and thrill rides that are there. As a huge fan of Beauty and the Beast, I also love to eat at the Be Our Guest restaurant, but our family tradition is to split a large quattro formaggio pizza at Via Napoli at Epcot. We have other Disney traditions including seeing Fantasmic on our first night, starting our time in Magic Kingdom in Tomorrowland, and spending the midpoint of our stay swimming in our resort pool after having lunch and shopping at Disney Springs. My favorite resort is Disney’s Grand Floridian due to its luxurious feel, proximity to the Magic Kingdom, and its customer service. My husband and I are also avid Harry Potter fans and have visited Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure numerous times. Being thrill seekers, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is my favorite ride, but you can typically find me drinking a butterbeer or riding the Hogwarts Express between the two parks. Cruising is also one of my family’s passions as my husband and I fell in love with it when we took our honeymoon on a two-week cruise in the Mediterranean. Since then, we have cruised the Caribbean eight times with multiple cruise companies; there is simply no better way to relax, unwind, and disconnect than being on a boat intentionally designed for these three fundamental principles of vacationing!
It would be my pleasure to assist you in your Disney and any other vacationing needs. Truly believing in my mission statement, I will get to know your heart’s wish very quickly so that I can not only meet your expectations, but exceed them in a way that allows me to capture your dream! A vacation to Disney or any other destination – whether it be for a quick weekend or a two-week grand adventure – should be enjoyed from the start. Allow me to capture that excitement and infuse some Disney magic into your vacation. If a dream is a wish your heart makes, let’s make that vacationing dream come true together!
