In my last blog, I told you about some exciting things that you could do after dark in the parks. Today, I want to share some activities that you can enjoy outside of the Walt Disney World theme parks.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve always said that I’m going to visit the Walt Disney World Resort and not buy any park passes. I just want to relax, visit the resorts, eat and shop! Most people just look at me like I have 3 eyes! But, there are a number of things to do without visiting the parks. Continue reading Disney World Outside The Theme Parks
Recently I was blessed with the opportunity to visit Disneyland for the first time in 20 years! And I can honestly say I was in awe of the magic that abounds all throughout both Disneyland Park, Disney’s California Adventure Park, and the entire resort area. Continue reading Disneyland Magic is Alive and Well!

If you’ve visited Disney World over the past few years, you have been able to use the new Fastpass+ System. The old “slide your card and print your ticket” systems are of days past. The new system allows you to “reserve” your Fastpasses before your trip. Continue reading WALT DISNEY WORLD FASTPASS NOW EVEN BETTER!

The question has been brought up to me lots and lots of times through my years as a Disney Specializing Travel Agent: With everything available online, why would I need a travel agent? And, to be honest, I can completely understand that question and why it would be asked when we live in a world where infinite information is available right at your fingertips. But there are some things you just can’t get online. One of the biggest of those is experience. Truly, it’s very hard to plan something as entailed as a Disney vacation without experience. The basics may be there, but all the details that can and will make your vacation truly magical will be lacking. Do you remember that old book with the line in it that goes, ‘lions and tigers and bears, oh my!’? Well in the world of Disney vacation planning, it’s more like, ‘dining and magic bands and fastpasses, oh my!’. And that’s only the tip of the Disney iceberg! Continue reading Why You Need A Disney Specializing Travel Agent
A short while ago I told you about a new nighttime event offering at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Well, now I’m announcing that there is also a new early morning event at the Magic Kingdom, too! And this is the one that I am personally SUPER excited for! Since I’m an early bird and not a night owl, I do believe that this could be the perfect option for someone like me. Of course, I know you’ll want to know all about it, so let’s dive in to all the magical details: Continue reading New Early Morning Magic at Walt Disney World!

What are the beliefs that hold you back from planning a Disney destination vacation? I may be able to fact check them for you. As a travel agent specializing in Disney destinations, I spend a lot of my time promoting myself, my business, and, of course, my love of all things Disney. One way I do this is by setting up a booth at local craft fairs, vendor shows, etc. I absolutely LOVE doing this because I get to meet new people in my own area and discover a love of Disney in lots of folks that I already knew. But, at each and every show, I hear many of the same things in regard to Disney World and why someone WOULDN’T go. Now, if you truly aren’t a “Disney person”–don’t like magical fun, or whatever–then so be it. It seems a sad way to live if you ask me, but I can accept that. But if your reasons don’t, in reality, hold water, then I want to be the one to help dispel those thoughts and open up a whole new world of possibilities for you. I seem to have the same 2 pop up over and over again, so those are the 2 will focus on. Let’s hop right to it, shall we? Continue reading Dispelling Some Walt Disney World Myths!
