My
My "home" away from home!

After years spent planning trips for friends and family as well as myself, I’m thrilled to be using my talents to help a whole new group of clients take the vacation of their dreams.

My love of travel started at a young age. Though I’ve been settled in Connecticut for 30 years now, I moved a lot as a child, living in England, France, and Portugal, and spending summers in Spain.

These days, my expertise is put to good use planning trips a little closer to home. My friends know me as the “Disney Guru,” and for good reason: I absolutely love all things Walt Disney World, and there’s nothing I love more than living vicariously through clients who are getting to experience the “Happiest Place on Earth” for the very first time.

Walt Disney World is the perfect place for the whole family. I went for the first time on my honeymoon and returned for my 5th anniversary.  My own children took their first Disney trip as newborns, returning as toddlers to cling to their favorite characters, then again as older kids braving the rides and trying exciting new foods.

In order to help give my clients the best service possible, I’ve completed various certifications including:

  • Disney College of Knowledge
  • Universal and U Sales Training Program
  • Member of the Disney Vacation Club

With extensive knowledge of their resort properties, I also spend a lot of time researching Disney news online so I’m always up-to-date on new attractions and fun events.

The truth is that there really is no “right or wrong” way to do Disney, and that’s why my job is so exciting. My knowledge and passion for Walt Disney World combined with your personal interests will help me create a one-of-a-kind itinerary perfect for you and your family.

From romantic getaways to multi-generation family reunions to a girls trip you and your friends will never forget, Disney truly does offer something unforgettable for everyone – and I can’t wait to help you discover it!

Thank the Lord for Marla!!

Reviewed By Ally - Cos Cob,CT | Traveled to
Marla is amazing! I met her thru a friend and we connected right away cause we both love Disney! So when my hubby started look up stuff to see prices! I was like wait I'm calling Marla! She handled everything from booking us a room and my MIL and SIL a room and made sure we were next to each other. We gave her a list of things we wanted to do and she told us what was available and when and booked it all. I will never try to book a trip again on my own! She did everything from booking our hotel to magical bus to and from the airport! She let us know when things had to be done by. And all the ins and outs to di!! Thank you so much Marla!!

The trip with a million changes!

Reviewed By Coffee Cate - Nashua, NH | Traveled to
Our family traveled to Disney for the first time and Marla was there to guide us every step of the way - - from what to expect at the airport, to recommending a resort based on our family's needs, suggesting restaurants, and even fitting in a day at Universal (and figuring out how to get to and from Disney). We had a great itinerary. Or so we thought. Friends decided to join us the same week and suddenly plans changed. Marla was right there with suggestions for the larger group and easily made the changes. And then the plans changed again. Marla didn't even hesitate - she took care of it and worked it out for us. Since it was all fairly new to us and we weren't sure where things were or how long it took to get from one ride to another or one restaurant to another, Marla really made sure all the changes still kept our schedule manageable with the kids. To our amazement, we had another change while we were at the park (trying to meet the needs of a large group can be a challenge!) and I reached out to Marla and she helped me that same day - to me, this was above and beyond the call of duty. We had a fantastic trip. Marla is knowledgable, responsive, and fun to work with. I look forward to planning our next trip with her!
