Disney, International Touring & African Safaris!
I love traveling and I love helping others plan unique, amazing vacations, whether it's a family trip to Walt Disney World, a luxury customized trip to Australia and New Zealand or a bucket list African Safari. I've visited the Disney and Universal Parks and Resorts more times than I can count and they are my most frequently booked destinations (and like a second home to my family). My love for international travel started years ago when I studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France. It was such an eye-opening experience to live in another country. Since then I have continued to travel abroad with friends and family. My absolute all-time favorite vacation was my honeymoon safari in Botswana! There is nothing more spectacular and awe-inspiring than an African sunset.

My Travel Stories
The most unbelievable, hard to describe, circle of life experience happened while we were in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. My husband and I were the only ones in the open-air safari vehicle. We were driving near a lake and our guide looked around and stopped. Years of experience and... Read more from my Circle of Life- Tanzania story.
Universal has a reputation that it's only for families with older children or adults. From personal experience I can tell you that isn't true at all. My son has been three times so far- once when he was 11 months, once at 2 years and once at 3 years. Each trip... Read more from my Universal with Little Ones story.
Africa was always on my bucket list but I hadn't even considered it for our honeymoon. We were going to Hawaii. Until I went to the car dealership. While waiting for an oil change I picked up a National Geographic magazine and read an article on Botswana. That was all it... Read more from my Honeymoon in Botswana story.

Perfect Disney Vacations
Heather handled our fast passes, dining and room recommendations with no issues. We wanted to go to the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot, for the main part of our trip, and it was wonderful. We had great dining reservations, and the recommendations for rides and shows to fit everyone's needs were greatly appreciated.
Our trip was perfect, and Heather's help made it stress free to plan - we just had to show up!
Thank you Tricia! It was great fun helping you plan a Disney vacation just for YOU! And I'm glad I could alleviate the stress of planning your trip to the Flower and Garden Festival.
Disney Planner Success
Heather planned a wonderful Disney vacation for our family. She went over all our hotel options and helped decide which one would work best for our family. She took care of all our dining and Fast Pass reservations and was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. We live in Florida and have been to Disney numerous times, but this was our first time using the full services of a Disney planner--and I can say without a doubt that using Heather is the way to do it! She planned our days far more efficiently than I ever had and we got so much more out of this trip thanks to her! We are already looking forward to our next Disney vacation!
Stress Free Anniversary Trip
We just returned from our first visit to Universal Studios Orlando for an anniversary trip and loved it all! It was so nice to find have an agent who actually knew about the Universal parks and could guide us as opposed to just booking it. Heather took care of absolutely everything, flights, shuttle, hotel, park tickets, etc. She answered all of my questions quickly and took all of the stress away so we were able to enjoy every minute! We will definitely be using her services again!
First Disney World Trip Success
We just returned from our FIRST Disney World trip, with our 2 boys (5 and 3 years old). Heather planned everything as perfect as I could imagine! She listened to what we wanted and made sure we got the most out of this trip, without exhausting ourselves. She was on top of booking our fast passes, ensuring we got the best rides... and booked us reservations at the BEST restaurants every night. I could not be more pleased with our trip and cannot wait to use her services in all of our future plans to Disney! Also, Heather was available anytime we needed her... whether it was before our trip or if we had questions during it! Thank you so much, Heather!
Heather is fantastic! She helped us plan our Disney cruise to the British Isles. I had never been on a cruise before and she provided so much insight that really helped us make the most of our trip. Heather is easy to work with. She responds quickly and answered all our questions. I HIGHLY recommend letting her help you plan a Disney vacation OR an international vacation.
Heather is GREAT! My trip was not an easy one to plan. Besides living 3000 miles overseas, having 2 autistic kids with a 5 year age difference and a limited budget, she made it work! We got all our needs, wants and even dreams fulfilled. She is extremely flexible, great at thinking out of the box and working to make everything fit! Hands on a perfect fit for my family! Heather, thank you so much!!
