Lewisburg, Pennsylvania Travel Agent

Specializing in Disney Destinations

"When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do." ~ Walt Disney

After a decade of planning Disney getaways for fun and on the fly, my enthusiastic journey to take memorable vacations has turned into a passionate quest to make dream vacations a reality for others!

As a native to Central Pennsylvania, I decided to hang around the area and graduated from Penn State University in 2004, with a degree in Journalism and aspirations of writing around the world.  However, life happened and within two years of graduation, I found myself married, settled into a 30-year mortgage, and cradled the future with the birth of our first daughter. Three years later, we became a family of four with the arrival of our second princess. In that time, my writing took the form of emails, birthday cards, and letters to my grandparents in Indiana.

Priorities shifted and family experiences took center stage. My husband and I frequently found ourselves reminiscing about childhood vacations and a favorite Sunday night activity: watching The Disney Sunday Movies. This nostalgia flooded my senses…the smell and taste of hot microwave popcorn…the sound of Mike Eisner's voice as he introduced that nights' classic film…the feel of the hardwood floor beneath my sleeping bag…and the sight of Tink as she brought to life the Disney logo (I still YouTube the intro)! Soon, we couldn't wait to create new Disney-filled memories with our daughters!

During one of our bi-annual visits to Walt Disney World®, I had the pleasure of chatting with two lovely ladies while a thunderstorm raged on around us. With a hot box of Boardwalk Pizza in one hand and a business card in the other, I met up with my husband and kiddos and relived the most amazing conversation that I just had with two travel agents who wanted to recruit me.  That simple meeting has turned into a fantastic career venture and today, next to my health insurance card is a piece of card stock that fills me with inspiration: my name with the Travel Leaders® logo!

My goal as your travel agent is to provide you with a unique, one-on-one travel planning experience, and to design a vacation tailored to your wishes.  I am your one-stop shop!

Hassle Free/Worry Free Vacation

Reviewed By Christina - Misawa, Japan | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Sara took care of every detail of our cruise. Although cruising is typically one stop shop, we had lots of questions and Sara helped answer all of them. She was thorough in her research and answered questions I didn't even think to ask. Since it was our first cruise with kids, she made sure to analyze everything with kids in mind. She was on standby when our journey began to help us reconfigure our transportation (being a military family, things on our end didn't work out as we hoped). Sara was confident in all airline policies and was sure to explain everything in detail prior to booking/changing flights. Once aboard we had surprises waiting for us in our room, how thoughtful she was to add that special something to kick off our family cruise and make our experience that much more magical. Even during our vacation she was readily available in case I had any other questions or concerns. I loved the quick reference guide we received prior to departing, lots of great info! Thanks Sara!

Our amazing and carefree honeymoon!

Reviewed By Grimme Honeymoon - Selinsgrove,Pa | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Sara was absolutely awesome!! She sat us down months before hand and we went through what we would want to do. Then she set everything up from flights, fast passes, hotels,meals ride from Disney to universal and would text us if anything opened up that she could reserve for us. She would text us our plan for the day and if we switched anything would find fast passes that we might want to change. Made sure we were taken care of all of our honeymoon. Would recommend her to anyone trying to take a vacation that we took!! Would give more than your 5 stars!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sara Newbury responded:
Many, many, many thanks to my first official HONEYMOONERS! You are both amazing individuals and now that you're Mr. & Mrs., I have no doubt that you will be one of those power couples read about in magazines ;) I absolutely enjoyed working with both of you and am beyond excited to continue to plan many more theme park visits for years to come!!! Thank you for such kind words :)

Our best trip so far!

Reviewed By Very busy mom - Lewisburg, PA | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
When I asked Sara to plan our Disney cruise to the Bahamas including a stay at Walt Disney World and a day trip to the Kennedy Space Center, I could not have imagined how invaluable her help would be or just how far she would go to make sure every detail was perfect. Sara took care of everything including securing outside transportation and making sure that I could travel comfortably as a person with a mobility disability. Sara even texted me during the trip to make sure things were going well, and when my son lost his Magic Band, she immediately canceled it online and told me how to get a new one. Her extensive expertise is impressive, and her friendly and attentive manner is much appreciated. I will never again plan a Disney trip without Sara, and we have already booked our next trip through her.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sara Newbury responded:
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be a part of your journey! Your family is truly incredible and I'm honored to still be playing a role in your future Disney vacations. Cheers!!

First Family Disney Trip

Reviewed By Bkarpinski - Sunbury, PA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I cannot say enough about our experience with Sara. From the first quote she provided until we were staring down Hurricane Matthew, she was more than available to us. Sara made our first family trip to Disney a memorable experience because of her knowledge, attention to detail and her nonstop availability before, during and after our trip. We've already booked our 2nd trip and recommended her service to anyone that would listen.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Sara is the best!

Reviewed By EKarpinski - Sunbury, PA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Cannot say enough good things about Sara and the services she provides! We were so impressed with her organization, communication, and planning skills that when we decided to plan a second trip to Disney we knew we wanted her help in planning the trip again! Always willing to help us with anything we need or have questions about and thinks of EVERYTHING! So very pleased with her services and have told anyone we know planning a trip to Disney (and beyond!) that they need to call Sara! She's the best!

Thank you so much, Erin! I truly am always honored to plan any trip for your family!!! You are an amazing family!
