Merrimack, New Hampshire Travel Agent
Disney Destinations & Family Travel Expert
I made my first trip to Walt Disney World as a 10 year old girl and although it was a quite smaller place back then, I remember feeling as though I had entered a completely different world. One where anything was possible and the only thing that mattered was that I was there, with my family, and had my parents’ full attention. There was no work, no list of chores, no responsibilities at all – just us exploring the most magical place on Earth. All these years later, I still remember walking along the path at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, hand in hand with my dad, as we headed to the beach to see the Electrical Water Pageant. We sat there together, just the two of us, and watched the parade, and then stayed there long after it was over, talking and laughing, until way past my normal bed time!
After that trip, I would not return to a Disney Park until I was a young adult and that is when my true obsession with Disney travel began! I have now traveled to Disneyland a handful of times, thoroughly enjoyed a voyage with Disney Cruise Line, and am about to embark on my 34th trip to Walt Disney World.
A few years ago, I decided to take all of the knowledge and excitement I have for Disney Destinations and become a travel specialist. A Disney vacation is not the simple undertaking it once was. It is really helpful for guests to have someone in their corner to help navigate all of the different options available. Since I spend just about every waking hour in the Disney universe, and quite a few of my dreams are spent there too, I find it easy to stay up to date on the changes that occur almost nonstop.
After working for a smaller agency for a time, I launched my very own travel agency – Mickey Guru Travel Company, LLC. I am so committed to providing clients with the very best the world has to offer, doing it out of my own agency made the most sense. A high quality customer experience, both during the planning process and during the actual trip, is of the utmost importance. I’m proud to say my record shows I hit it out of the park – every time!
I have been lucky to help couples, families, and groups of friends enjoy all of the magic a Disney vacation can offer. I treat each vacation as I would my own and help clients with as much, or as little, of the details as they want. Whether you are looking for someone to provide you with a step by step itinerary, make reservations for your family at your favorite dining spot, or just someone to monitor discounts and save you money, I’m your Guru!
I am well versed in helping families on a budget stretch their dollar as far as it can go while also helping others enjoy some of the finer things these destinations have to offer. I have personally taken trips on a shoestring budget, a 15 night stay at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and everything in between!
I recently worked with a single mom who had dreamed of taking her young son to Walt Disney World for years but had a very limited budget. I worked with her to determine what things were most important to her, and her son, and created a vacation that didn’t completely break her bank account. They both had an amazing time and it made my heart so incredibly happy to know that I had played a role in the magic they experienced!
I’m currently working with a large family group that is headed on a vacation of a life time to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary! This group is planning a 4 night stay at Walt Disney World and a 7 night Western Caribbean cruise with Disney Cruise Line. With two complex destinations, and 13 adults and 4 children, these guests don’t have to worry about anything other than having an amazing time together because I’ve got it all covered.
Of course, I also have a few of my own trips in the work! I’m going to SeaWorld’s water park, Aquatica, and Walt Disney World with a large group of friends this October. We will enjoy Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival while we are there and I’m sure we’re going to have an amazing adventure. As we get closer to the Christmas holiday season, my entire family will be going back to Walt Disney World to celebrate in style!
Although Disney Destinations will always be closest to my heart, I’ve discovered that vacations to other destinations can be quite magical too! I am a Universal Orlando specialist and a certified Sandals / Beaches Resorts specialist. With my connections with travel destinations worldwide, I can help you plan vacations all over the world including cruises, group tours, and more!
I would love to talk with you about your dreams for your next vacation, whether it be a family trip, a romantic couple’s getaway, or a trip with friends! My services will never cost you more than if you were to book your vacation on your own b
