It probably goes without saying that I'm a Disney and Universal fan. In fact, I'm a big fan of travel in general even though I hate to fly. Although I've worn a myriad of hats in my professional life (wedding planner, author, inventor, property manager, accountant, project controls manager), it wasn't until going back to work after a stint of stay-at-home Momhood that I decided to plan Disney vacations for a living, and fell in love with it. Blogging here and in our Facebook group as well as planning lots of magical vacations is my full-time career, and I'm as dedicated as they come. I've been blessed with uncommon success in this endeavor and I credit it fully to an answered prayer and a genuine love of what I do. From first-timers to seasoned travelers, I love bringing my own touch of magic to my clients' vacations and making it the best and smoothest experience it can be. In my personal life, I'm a Mom to one daughter and one rescued fur-baby, wife, scrapbooker, and music fan (esp. Dierks Bentley). Charity, integrity, and friendship are super important to me. If I were a Disney character, I would be Joy - I approach life with a sense of humor and a smile every day.
It's rare to be able to have a career doing something you really love and I'm grateful for that opportunity every day. I love all things Disney ... from the movies to the characters to the rides. I'm a kid at heart when it comes to Disney and I love sharing that passion with other people. In fact, I'm planning to move to the Orlando area within the next couple of years in order to be closer to Disney and be able to bring you live reports from the heart of it all. Aside from Disney, I'm a wife and mother to my fur-baby, I love to sample new cuisines, cook, spend time with friends, and travel. I'm a recovering night owl so you'll often find me on Facebook into the wee hours (usually chatting with Jenn about our clients' vacations). My favorite Disney character is Olaf - who doesn't love warm hugs? :)
Why work with a travel agent?
For Disney and Universal:
Can anyone book a Disney or Universal vacation? Yep.
Can anyone plan a Disney or Universal vacation? Weellll ....
Here's where that WHY comes in. Technically speaking, anyone can plan a vacation much the same way anyone can change the oil in his/her car, but is it the best way to do it, the best use of your time, and does it yield the same result? Probably not.
There is a plethora of useful (and sometimes incorrect) information on the internet and if you're reading this, you're probably already aware of that. In fact, this site is dedicated to providing you with lots of helpful and accurate information for planning your next vacation. However, it can never be comprehensive and it's never going to talk back to you when you have questions; nor will it know questions to ask you to make the best possible suggestions to enhance your trip. That's where good travel agents come in. No matter how much you research and read, there's simply no substitute for experience. Aside from our personal experience with the travel destinations we represent, there's also the experience of working with these suppliers each and every day. Planning a vacation even goes beyond the actual prep work. What if you encounter a problem with your reservation or during your vacation? Knowing who to call and what to say can make the difference between time wasted and time having fun, and a completely satisfied experience versus frustration. Realistically though, we never have to "sell" our services to anyone for one very basic reason .. our service is FREE. Yes, free. I know, you're skeptical because free has no value and nothing is free and if it sounds too good ... But wait, here's why ... Travel suppliers build travel agent commissions into their rates whether you use one or not. So yes, it truly is a value added service that comes with no cost to you when you book your vacation with an agent.
The next step is finding the right travel agent for you. We don't sell what we don't know so we can take that portion of the guesswork out of it for you. We don't pretend to be something we're not or muddle our way through your hard-earned vacation. The best way to find out if we're right for you is to chat with us online or by phone. You can also check out our testimonials. They're not comprehensive but they're a good representation of our reputation, and they demonstrate why we have an impeccable service record. In fact, the agency we're affiliated with is a gold level, award-winning EarMarked agency with Disney and we're proud to be the agency's top-booking team.
There is literally a world of travel options out there. In fact, there are over 700 tour companies alone vying for your favor in selecting the right itinerary for your next trip. When it comes to ocean cruises, some lines are better than others when it comes to cuisine, catering to kids, focusing on your photography, and more. Having a travel advisor immersed in the industry daily, trained directly by the suppliers and even connecting with the company directors in some cases, brings a level of confidence to your trip that is simply unattainable by well-meaning friends or even limited personal experience. I love to travel as much as you do, which is why I love my job and love sharing my expertise with you. Let's wander the world together! Contact Jenn when you're ready to plan your next big adventure.
