Epcot At Disney World

If you’re looking for an agent who knows Walt Disney World front, back, and sideways, the search is over!

I’m not simply a fan of Disney; it was once a central part of my life. I completed a 5-month internship program in Orlando where I worked at Chef Mickey’s restaurant. To say it was a life-changing experience is just the beginning. I've also visited Disneyland in Anaheim, California on several occasions.

With my insider knowledge, I can guide you from the beginning steps of planning your trip all the way to navigating your way through the park. Let me assist you in choosing the best places to eat, what rides to check out, and the perfect timing for your Disney visit.

Disney vacation with no stress thanks to Anastasia

Reviewed By Overtired Dad of Kids under the age of 6 - Indianapolis | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
We did not understand the benefits of working with a travel agent until we met up with Anastasia. She put our needs first and began to customize a vacation that best suited what we wanted to accomplish. She understood our busy schedules and made things easy for us to accomplish the important details prior to our vacation. Anastasia is the most proactive person I have ever witnessed! She sent us ideas and found a phenomenal promotion did leg work on our behalf to get the promotion applied. She could have not done that, however, it is not her style. She puts her clients first and her personality kept us calm and collected during some of the stressful parts of planning and budgeting. We could have never done this on our own--Anastasia was patient with us and gave the best advice based on her wealth of experience and research. If you want someone to pay attention to the details and do what is right during every step of the process, then look no further than Anastasia.

Ana was very good to work with. This was our first time booking a trip with a travel agent and it was great. Ana took a lot of time with us to make sure that we were going to get exactly what we wanted and was very helpful the whole time. Even during our trip, Ana had our return flights home changed in order to avoid some bad weather on the East Coast. This took all of the stress out of returning home from our trip. We will definitely book with Ana again, probably even for domestic trips. thank you!

Greek getaway

Reviewed By Tiffany1231 - Westfield, IN | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
We've worked with Travel Leaders on another European trip and naturally sought them out again when we were planning our trip to Greece. Anastasia was amazing and super knowledgeable about the location. We spent half of our trip in Athens and on day tours but wanted the other half to be more relaxing on an island. She did great at helping us select a hidden gem that was best suited for our personalities and we are already talking about going back. To be honest, I told my husband we were moving there as soon as possible - it was that fantastic (also, I wasn't kidding...hello retirement!).

Anastasia is such a great travel agent! We initially thought we would only use her for our honeymoon (as we're young and not that wealthy) but she made the experience so smooth and easy that we had to use her again! She works great under a budget and really takes your requests seriously.

I remember that we had asked her to book us a hotel in Paris that was historical and near the city center (under a budget, of course). Wow! Did she deliver - not only was the hotel historical and super-close to Notre-Dame, but it was also charming and right in the middle of an arts district.

We're truly made a travel partner with her and we're so excited for our next trip!

I provided Anastasia with my budget and destination choices. She returned with several scenarios and I chose the best fit for me. Anastasia did the rest. The hotel she arranged had a kitchen and private bath. It was located in a vibrant and high-energy location to the northeast of Paris that included lots of cafes, patisseries, boulangeries, fromageries and poissonries. It was just a few minutes walk to a wonderful outdoor market. It was also steps away from the metro. My experience working with Anastasia was excellent and I have already asked her to arrange my next trip to the American west.

Worry free stunning honeymoon in Hawaii

Reviewed By Sara Mesing - Decatur | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Our experience working with Anastasia was absolutely wonderful! We told Anastasia where we wanted to go and the time line and BOOM it was booked and ready to go! She also assisted with booking actives and adventures for our stay in Hawaii. After all the wedding planning the last thing we wanted was to be stressed out about when our flight leaves/lands, picking up rental cars, hotel information, check in and out times, and transportation. We received our itinerary with ever detail you could think of, which meant a worry free vacation. Anastasia truly booked an absolutely stunning honeymoon that we will cherish forever! We enjoyed ever second of Hawaii and all the adventures. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your assistance with planning and arranging ever detail for our trip. We would book again with you in a heartbeat!

Our Go To Vacation Spot!

Reviewed By Hilary - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to Mexico
There are not enough words of gratitude that I have for Anastasia and all she has done to make every vacation we go on a major success! Vacations are super important to me and my husband as we have crazy work schedules and value the time we get to spend together away from all the stress of daily life. That being the case anytime I need to get away I turn the reigns over to Anastasia and she makes it happen! We have always had amazing service, luxurious accommodations, and easy private transports to and from the airports - which is always a major bonus! I always refer Anastasia to my family and friends and know they have rave reviews for all she does for them, as well! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

A Dream Cruise

Reviewed By Lynne - Ft Lauderdale, FL | Traveled to Rhine River ~ On the River ~ At Sea
I can't say enough good things about Anastasia. I met her quite by accident but she has not only helped me understand the value a travel agent brings, but her personal attention to detail and follow up has been nothing short of amazing. I will definitely call on her for any future trips and will continue to recommend her to everyone! So glad I bumped in to you!

Honeymoon

Reviewed By October 2017 Honeymooners - Carmel, Indiana | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Anna was great to work with! We really had no idea what we wanted to do for our honeymoon. She gave us numerous options and worked with us throughout the entire process of deciding what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. She was overwhelmingly patient with us as the honeymoon, while maybe one of the most import parts of the wedding, was not our first priority in figuring out. I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family!

Trip went beyond expectations for family members

Reviewed By Nash Bash - Madison, Wisconsin | Traveled to Nashville ~ Tennessee ~ USA
We started planning early for a family trip together in Nashville, but with 19 people included in the mix, it was an interesting every changing event planning process. Anastasia was very efficient and delightful to work with as we changed hotel plans three times (for good reason) and making reservations for other Itinerary events.

Have already referred Anastasia to another person for a different family trip.
