Savvy Disney Vacation Planner
Disney Cruise on the Dream
Do you dream of escaping the busy schedule of daily family life? Do you dream of holding your loved ones close while having fun together at a theme park or relaxing on a beach?
Let’s put those dreams into action!
My family took our first Disney World vacation in 2016, and from that moment I was hooked. That vacation sparked a passion for all things Disney. I love being able to let go of adulthood and have fun with my boys sharing all the magical experiences Disney offers. Since then, we have been back to Disney World 4 times including 1 adult only trip and a Disney Cruise on the Dream. Two of these trips were multi-generational. Creating detailed daily touring plans of each park has enabled us to make the most out of our time there.
A few years ago, I realized that my passion for travel and detail oriented personality would make me the perfect travel advisor. I started Whimsical Vacations and started my journey of planning dream vacations for travelers.
Planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming and time consuming. With all the attractions, shows, resorts, theme parks, tickets, dining plans, restaurants, character experiences, etc. the decisions can be endless in preparing for an exceptional vacation. Let me take care of it for you! I will plan your dining reservations, fast passes, and daily touring plans so you can relax and focus on being present with your family having fun together.
What’s on my Disney bucket list? I hope to travel to Disneyland, Aulani, and an Alaskan Disney Cruise in the (hopefully near) future.
Dream Vacation Maker
While we love Disney vacations, my family enjoys going on many different types of adventures together. In recent years, we have explored
*San Diego, California
*Fort Myers, Florida
*Niagara Falls, Canada
*Yellowstone National Park
I truly enjoy diving into research for our trips to find the best activities to do, places to visit, sites to see, and restaurants to enjoy. I am detail oriented and organized. Our family can relax on our vacations knowing that every detail is in place.
You can trust me to take the stress out of planning and give you a dream vacation!
