Disney and Universal Specialist

Galaxy's Edge!
Galaxy's Edge!

Hi! I'm Kelly and I reside in Signal Mountain, Tennessee with my husband and two young children. When not dipping my toes in the sand, hitting the theme parks or hanging out with Mickey and Minnie, I'm busy helping others plan their dream vacations! With a background in Conference & Event Planning, I'm hyper-organized and love to plan vacations you'll remember forever.

While we are a full-service agency, I am most passionate about Disney Destinations, Universal Orlando and major cruise lines. I visit these destinations often and can offer tips & tricks!

Let's chat about your dream getaway!

Vacation for Family, Vacation from Planning!

Reviewed By Lesley - Chattanooga, TN | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Kelly is extremely helpful and friendly! She is a great listener and was able to help us plan the perfect trip based on our family's needs. Kelly was also able to help us get the most bang for our buck. Without her help, I know that our trip would have been less successful and a struggle to plan! She was able to answer questions we had on the way to the resort and gave me helpful suggestions to managing our trip once we arrived. One of her best suggestions turned into our son's favorite souvenier from the trip! I have already recommended her to several friends who have also had wonderful trips.

Fabulous Disney Trip

Reviewed By Ellie - Orlando, Florida | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Our trip to Disney in June of 2019 was awesome and much credit goes to Kelly. We praised her daily. When we had a ond day flight delay , Kelly re-arranged our hotel accommodations, tickets and fast passes. Kelly saved us so much money by planning the best trip for us. I recommend her to everyone!

Exemplary

Reviewed By Ecstatic - Ringgold, GA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
There are not enough adjectives to describe Kelly. She is stellar in all areas. Her prompt communication and dealing with any problems is like a mother watching over her children. I refer her to all my friends. She is the only person I have been able to trust in all my 70 years.

The most AMAZING Disney trip!

Reviewed By Gretchen - Sartell, MN | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Kelly is absolutely amazing! We loved working with her. She's so sweet & knowledgeable about all things Disney. Planning any trip can be overwhelming but planning a Disney trip felt like it would be even more so. Not with Kelly at the helm! She sent over multiple quotes as we decided what resort was best for us & our 6 year old. She was so patient as we navigated all options. Answered multiple questions all hours of the day. She also coordinated our day at Discovery Cove. She looked for beach front hotels near Tampa/St Petersburg/Clearwater for us to decide where we'd stay when we'd leave our disney resort. She sent our magic bands & later a packet of info for our trip with park maps & info about each park on. She included Mickey & Minnie ears for all of us which our daughter LOVED! We were trying to get a reservation at Magic Kingdom for either dinner at Cinderella's castle or Belle's & never had any luck. She continuously checked for us & got one! We had the BEST time.

Our vacation would’ve been a bust without Kelly

Reviewed By Sarah - Southern Minnesota | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Kelly was amazing! She offered communication with me during the entire planning/booking process and during my trip. She helped me out during a crunch when one of my reservations (not originally made by her) was canceled and helped me find an alternative resort. I would’ve been lost without her and I will never book another trip without a travel agent!

A+ Disney Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Elizabeth Burns - Chattanooga, TN | Traveled to Nassau ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Talk about pixie dust galore! Kelly was A+ all-around with our Disney land & sea vacation (Walt Disney World + Disney Cruise). She coordinated everything, helping with fast passes (& disability pass), dining, tips & tricks, etc and gave us magical customer service along the way. Any time we had a question or concern, she responded almost immediately with an answer or gave us a reasonable time to follow-up with us with the answer. Kelly is extremely knowledgeable about Disney vacations from her education & training, as well as from her own family travel experiences. Payments were easy, communications were effortless, and she is one of the nicest, sweetest people you will ever meet. We never felt like we were a nuisance and she always made us feel like a top priority. We always felt truly valued as clients and definitely felt the Disney magic working with her as we did while on vacation. Kelly’s services are free, so we highly recommend her to anyone looking to travel to Disney!

Kelly is a Rockstar!

Reviewed By Jenn - Carver | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Kelly was an amazing guide for my family's first trip to Disney World, particularly during a pandemic. She was informative, responsive, and helped us to secure highly sought-after reservations. Navigating Disney World and all of its options can be overwhelming, and Kelly made it so much less stressful as a process so that we were able to enjoy the planning and actual vacation portions of our visit. I would 100% recommend her to anyone considering a trip to Disney World!
