Melanie Schoeffler

Elmira, New York Travel Agent

An independent agent with Gateway to Magic in Huntington, IN, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Disney Travel Expert

When my clients come to me requesting that I help them plan a Disney vacation, I offer them words from the famed Timon and Pumba from The Lion King: "Hakuna Matata! It means no worries, for the rest of your days!" This is the attitude that I want everyone to have as they embark on a magical adventure with their loved ones, and this is why people love to book their Disney trips with me!

When it comes to planning memorable and exciting vacations to the various Disney properties across the globe, I stand out from other travel agents because:

  • I genuinely love assisting them and helping them navigate the planning process. I am a detail-oriented person, which is necessary when planning a trip to Disney. From choosing a resort to making dining reservations and selections for FastPass+ rides and attractions, I help my clients create an itinerary that is perfectly suited to their needs and interests.
  • I book my clients' trips for them, but I don't just stop there. I keep track of upcoming promotions so that my travelers can enjoy the most affordable Disney vacation trip possible. If a new promotion is released after you book, I will update it for you and get you the savings you deserve!
  • I help travelers with dietary concerns plan a trip that is delicious and safe at the same time. I assist my clients in selecting restaurants that offer allergy-friendly menus throughout the resort.
  • I am a Disney College of Knowledge graduate who also prioritizes training programs that keep me informed about the latest updates within the parks and throughout all Disney destinations. In addition to Disney, I have completed several cruise certification programs and I enjoy booking these once-in-a-lifetime trips for my clients.

Whether you are booking your first Disney vacation or you travel to the happiest place on earth every year with your family, I am the travel agent you need in order to make the most out of your trip. I'm excited to hear about your dreams for your trip, and I can't wait to make them come true! Contact me today.

She took a load off my shoulders!!

I love Disney and probably could have arranged our trip on my own. But Melanie made it way too easy for me!! She took care of every detail I didn't want to do (waiting on the phone to ask questions or waking up early to make sure we got the best deal possible)!! I was able to do the fun planning of fast passes, while she took care of calling to make sure our sweet little boy with a severe food allergy would have notes on all our reservations! She was went above and beyond to check in on us, answer any questions (no matter how redundant lol) remind us of special dates, change any arrangements for us or any detail we needed! I have already recommended her to friends and will continue to!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Melanie took the stress out of having to plan ALL the details! ? Stroller rentals, flights, tips for doing this with little ones... Even a few surprises for them as the days grew closer. ;) Was very glad to have her on "my team" as I planned this all out.
