Shawnee, Kansas Travel Agent

An independent agent with Magic Mouse Travel, LLC in Shawnee, KS, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Orlando, Florida and Caribbean Travel Specialist

Disney World is a dream vacation for many families, but the options that are available to you can be overwhelming. With dozens of resorts, hundreds of restaurants and four different theme parks to maneuver, it can seem like more work than play when you are planning your vacation.

I can change all of that for you.

I am a certified Disney specialist, and an expert on this fantastic amusement park and resort complex. I can narrow down your options for you, and provide you with an itinerary that will be filled with fun, memories and of course, Mickey Mouse.

My clients know me as their friendly, go-to travel agent, and many are surprised to find out that I'm not only a travel professional but also a certified public accountant. My career has allowed me to expand into this exciting industry, and I believe my experience as a CPA offers my clients many benefits.

For one, I am extremely detail-oriented and will plan an expert trip down to the very last minute. In addition, I know the value of a dollar and I pride myself on my ability to get my clients the absolute best possible deal.

Planning a family vacation is an investment, and it's one you want to enjoy. I will help you select the best accommodations, restaurants and tours for your trip — all while staying within your budget.

In addition to planning trips to Walt Disney World, I also am a Universal Parks and Resorts specialist. I was able to take this trip myself with my two teenage daughters, and we all loved the exciting new rides at Harry Potter World.

I also specialize in planning cruises and creating itineraries for trips to Mexico, Dominican Republic, or other Caribbean destinations, which I have found to be another fantastic way to spend quality time with the entire family in a whole new setting.

When you come to me with ideas and goals for your next vacation, I place myself in your shoes. I take the time to create a personalized itinerary that makes all of your dreams come true. There's nothing more wonderful than an escape from reality with your family by your side.

Let me help you make your getaway today.

Very memorable Disney trip!

Reviewed By Valentine - Lenexa KS | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Hassle free. Denise planned everything. I will definitely recommend her services.
Denise planned our Fast Passes in a way that we were able to schedule other rides and events we wanted to do to hit everything we wanted to hit.
Regarding anything that maybe we might do differently:
1. 4 parks in 4 days was a bit overwhelming. Our next Disney trip we will plan rest days in between.
2. Flights and rental car return didn't quite compliment each other. We pd a little extra to extend our rental car time, but a little better communication up front could have prevented this.
3. Hotel in Clearwater required valet parking and did not have a kitchenette. We took advantage more of the beach without leaving the hotel, but think next time we will request something a little different.
4. Probably would not plan a breakfast buffet so far away from our hotel on the last day. It was an excellent buffet, but the Disney transportation was backlogged that morning so we spent so much time in tra

Magical, stress free trip!!

Reviewed By Katie Brainard - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Denise was fabulous to work with. She provided us with a lot of recommendations and quotes for places to stay. She was very willing and prompt in answering my millions of questions that I had. When it came time to book restaurants and fast passes, we were clueless on what to choose and totally let her plan it out for us. We were not disappointed! The restaurants were excellent! We had fast passes for all of the top rides at every park. She even helped us book a day at Universal Studios with transportation to and from. She helped us make all of our payments. I could not have planned this trip without her guidance! From start to finish, our trip was smooth! Thank you Denise!

Fabulous Disney World and beach family vacation

Reviewed By The Colectons - Lake Quivira, KS | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
Denise's planning, advice, Disney expertise, flexibility and scheduling made it possible for us to have the worry free, enjoyable Disney World and beach family vacation we had looked forward to for a year and a half. We could concentrate on enjoying each other and making family memories knowing that Denise had dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's. She took the time to meet with us and our family before we started planning our trip and again during the planning stages, making her recommendations spot on for our family. She was always prompt to answer our emails or texts and had the answers to our many questions. She did all the booking and scheduling and knew when each booking window opened and closed so we were able to get our first choices of activities and accommodations. Our whole family, (which includes our five adult children, their spouses and our grandchildren) all appreciate Denise helping us accomplish our goal of having a fabulous family vacation.

Denise Has a Degree in Disney!

Reviewed By Jill - Kansas | Traveled to
We are a busy family and did not have time to read piles of books, ask everyone we knew on social media for hints, compile it all and hope we hit the Disney jackpot. Denise literally made the planning relaxing, in stages and fun! We could enjoy our trip from beginning to end. She set up everything for us and got all the reservations, Fastpasses, etc we wanted. We just showed up for our vacation and worked the plan she put together for us with our input for our particular family wants and needs. It was the only way to do Disney in our mind. This is as stress-free as it gets with WDW! Thank you, Denise! We will be calling you again!

Great Help in Planning Disney

Reviewed By Denise - Lenexa, KS | Traveled to
Denise was an incredible help to us in planning our trip and working out all the details with us. Disney has too many moving parts and details for us to plan it ourselves-especially as this was our first time there. She was great at staying within our budget and also planning our fast passes and working out the dining plan so we could get the most out of our trip. It was a great family vacation- with no stress involved in the planning. Will definintely use her again!

Made our Disney vacation fun, memorable and no stress!

Reviewed By Carla - Boston, MA | Traveled to
We are so happy to have been referred to Denise for our first trip to Disney World with young children! We were overwhelmed trying to plan the trip ourselves, and everything was smooth sailing when Denise stepped in! In fact, she made the planning fun and easy! We were amazed! She really listened to us when we told her about our budget concerns and about the key Disney Princess events that interested our kids. She helped us save so much money, time and stress. We can't wait to go back to Disney World and use Denise again!

Amazing Vacation

Reviewed By Sand - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to
This trip was a big vacation for us. We combined a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with a Disney Cruise, each by itself would have been a good vacation but combining them introduced a lot of complexity to the trip with additional transport required. Denise was able to provide many tips about both the theme park and the cruise. She provided information but also listened to what we wanted to accomplish during the trip and advised us accordingly. I would very much recommend her for anyone planning to visit these attractions.

Sterbach Disney Vacay 2015

Reviewed By Sterbach Disney 2015 - Shawnee, KS | Traveled to
Here are a few things that I would recommend for future guests: 1. Make sure the shuttle vehicle is big enough for to accompany the luggage, not just the guest size. We had to ride with luggage on our laps to the resort, not very comfortable. 2. Make sure that you inform the guests on which days are extended for resort guests. Then plan on booking dinners, and fast passes accordingly. That way the guest can maximize their time spent. 3. Inform the guest on which resort is closest to their favorite park. Coronado Springs is centrally located, and we loved staying here. We had forgotten how convienent it is to all the parks. 4. Inform the guest of the policy change with disney with regards to hopper passes. Now they can use anytime within a 14 day period. This is important information when choosing length of stay and include a down day just at the resorts. 5. Make sure that the guest know about the refillable drink cups available with or without purchase of the dining plan. These come in handy when grabbing a beverage at the resort and should be purchased even if not using the dining plan. 6. I highly recommend the dining plan!!!! Well worth the money spent! 7. As you can now book three fast passes per day, make sure the guest is aware that they should book the most popular rides in advance. The fast passes can be changed at any time, but it is hard to get on to these rides within a close time frame for fast passes. Very important to book these ahead of time. 8. Also make the guest aware that the extended hours are perfect times to hit the popular rides. We were able to ride the mine ride back-to-back at 2:30 am. Well worth staying up late and sleeping in the next day. 9. Make sure the guest is familiar with My Disney Expereience, as well as Memory Maker. These two items are essential for making it the best possible experience. Memory Maker is so worth the money!

She made planning the trip a breeze, all we did was show up

Reviewed By Nettie - Gaithersburg, MD | Traveled to
Denise was awesome as our travel agent. It was our first time to Disney and we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Denise squared us away with itineraries for both Universal and Disney. She really made the Disney parks a smooth sailing vacation. She answered every question we had, even had a couple of phone calls after hours just to make sure we felt comfortable with everything. I was texting her up to the last minute and she was there answering our last concerns. She helped us maximize our time there, pointing out where to go, what to see, what to skip. She did everything from scheduling fast passes to booking some dining reservations for us. Fabulous from start to finish. You will not be disappointed with Denise planning your trip. She is a delight and she really cares about what she does, which is evident in how she is with her clients as well as her planning. We will definitely use her again in the future!!

Denise did a great job of planning our Disney Vacation. We did not plan out very much in advance, which proved to be no problem for Denise. She was back to us in a few days with options for our timeframe.
She recommended hotel information, planned rides and suggested dinning options at all the parks. We were able to meet prior to the vacation to review details of the trip. Her energy and excitement while planning made me even more excited to be going to Disney.
