Travel Consultant - Disney, Cruises, Caribbean, US

“Shannon the Planner” is what my friends and family have been calling me for years! So I often ask myself what took me so long to realize that I should be a travel agent? It began when I was a child and my parents would take us on vacation (which I absolutely loved!). I would often times take over the planning of it, much to my parents’ dismay! After losing my job in the commercial flooring industry (interesting, huh?), I decided to attend travel school in 2000 and then took a job with an agency shortly after “graduating”. I have been an agent ever since and have loved every minute of it! I am married and have 2 very active boys –
who also have a love of travel! I’ll never forget taking my husband to Disney World for his first time in May 2004 and hitting all 4 parks in one day!

I have 15 years of experience booking honeymoons, family vacations and destination weddings to locations all over the world! Personally I have traveled all over the US including Alaska and Hawaii and have visited several Caribbean islands both on land vacations and cruises. My family and I are huge Disney fans and enjoy visiting Disney World (especially during the holidays) and cruising on Disney ships. Allow me to take my love of travel and help you plan your “trip of a lifetime”!

Expert in planning Disney Vacations!

While I enjoy booking travel to anywhere in the world, my specialty and passion is most definitely Disney! There is nothing better than planning that “once in a lifetime” vacation
for a multi-generational family and seeing the looks on their faces in the pictures when they come home! I don’t stop planning once the vacation is booked either. I will assist you in whatever capacity you would like…from daily itinerary planning to helping with your Fast Passes…from dining reservations to resort suggestions. All you have to do is sit back, relax and let me do all the work! Before you know it, you will be meeting the
Mouse himself!

Stress free vacation booking!!

Had great insight on all of the parks including Universal and was super helpful helping me coordinate and book all of my fast passes making my planning and time at the parks stress free!:) I would highly recommend both Shannon and Travel Leaders to anyone looking to take the stress out of family vacation planning!:):)

Disney 1st Timer - Shannon Made it So Easy!!!!!

Reviewed By Dave - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I'm a planner / reasearched too but felt completely overwhelmed trying to figure out Disneyworld for the first time. Enter Shannon.... She knows everything about Disney - where to eat, what attractions need fast passes, resort options, transportation options, etc. We spent 5 days in the parks and everything was perfect due to all the great prep work and arrangements that Shannon helped with. I'm so glad that I chose to rely on Shannon's expertise instead of trying to make all of the arrangements on my own. Thanks for helping to make our first Disney trip amazing!!!!!

Amazing vacation!!

Reviewed By Jean - Bluffton, Ohio | Traveled to Castaway Cay ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Shannon was great to work with and always responded in a timely manner as I'm an hour and half away from her so did all our correspondence through email and phone. My family went on a Disney cruise and it was amazing! I also told her what we were looking for in a hotel for last day of vacation and she exceeded our expectations.

Awesome Disney Vacation!

Reviewed By Chris - Westerville, Ohio | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
For years, I had managed to avoid the inevitable Disney world trip. This year, I lost! After trying to navigate the early stages of planning for the trip, I connected with Shannon. From that point, she made the process extremely easy. She took the time to understand what we wanted out of the trip and explained how all the hotels, food, transportation, fast passes, etc worked. That info alone would have taken me many days to figure out. What was also awesome is that Shannon had been to Disney many times, so she could speak from actual experience. After figuring out our preferences, she made all the arrangements for hotel, car, fast passes, etc. As we got closer to the trip, she reached out again to make sure we were all set. Our trip was amazing and everything was exactly as she described. That would likely not be the case if I had done all the planning myself. Shannon took all of the stress out of planning this vacation and I would highly recommend using her when you “lose”!

Best of the best!

Reviewed By Barbie - Upper Arlington, OH | Traveled to Mexico
I have worked w/Shannon now for 8 years and she is my absolute go-to agent! She first assisted us w/our 1st trip to Disney World (soon to be followed by 2 more trips, plus our Disney Cruise!). All were perfect! Our family has also relied on Shannon to book multiple trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Every time she is spot on with her recommendations and insight. Her tenure and experience is a huge advantage, as she can thoroughly assist us when deciding on destinations and accommodations which would be best for our family. I have recommended Shannon time and time again to family members and friends, all of which have become loyal customers also. Another great thing about Shannon is that she can problem solve and get creative if a client has to change their travel plans for any reason (due to illness, family emergency, etc.). She takes the time (often her personal time!) to find the best solution. Shannon is the best of the best and I would highly recommend calling her!

Magical Christmas at Disney!

Reviewed By Kelly - London, Ohio | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Shannon was a great help planning our trip to Disney World. She did an amazing job booking our fast passes and all of our restaurants. We went at a very busy time of year, Christmas, and she was still able to get us the reservations we wanted. Shannon had a lot of very helpful tips and hints to make our trip wonderful! Planning a trip to Disney World can be very stressful, but Shannon made it very easy.

Shannon Reed responded:
Thanks Kelly! I'm so pleased that your trip was everything you were hoping it would be. Holiday time can be very stressful at Disney so I'm glad that my assistance helped make your trip as smooth as possible! Looking forward to planning your next trip!

Best experience ever

Reviewed By Christy Thomson - Fremont, IN | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
She was absolutely amazing. She helped me put together my mom's dream of a vacation for our family. She had to keep a secret to surprise my mom with one of her grand kid's arrival and still plan dinner reservations. She worked at 11 p.m. at night to make sure things happened and was available all the time. She was patient and kind and I would use her again or refer her in a second.

Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By Dave - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Mexico
Shannon did an amazing job. She navigated us through changing our entire trip at the last minute due to a death in the family. She worked endlessly to make a much needed trip come true and did it with the care and respect that you don't often get these days. I couldn't recommend her enough for anyone's travel needs!
