I LOVE Planning Universal and Disney vacations. I can’t believe I get to wake up every morning and help Families (most with special needs) make magical memories like the ones I have.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself!
I believe travel brings the family closer together while broadening their horizon at the same time
I believe vacation is the best way to really let go and let everyone be themselves!
I started this business to help special needs families enjoy those things together as families that most most families take for granted!
I want to do the same for your family.
So how did I get here?
Then my three year old son was in a terrible car accident and everything changed for me. Something as simple as going to the local park became a chance for a major melt down. His 4 year old sister deserved her childhood back.
I learned everything I could about special needs travel through Special Needs Group at Sea, The Travel Institute, as well as the parks themselves. I had long conversations with Disney when they made the change from the GAC to the DAS (on what worked and what wasn't working so well).
I've had long conversations with Guest Services at Universal as they have revamped the AAP just prior to Covid and after they opened back up. Not only about the things that deal directly with my son's disability, but with my grand daughter's amputation as well.
I have made it my mission to make travel for all members of the family important!
My background in underwriting taught me to look at things analytically. I focus on planning for special needs in a way that integrates the rest of the family too.
I LOVE to travel and want YOU to love it too.
I love learning exactly what you envision for your trip and making it happen.
I will share my honest opinions and treat each vacation differently but still as lovingly as if it were my own.
IF I SOUND LIKE SOMEONE, YOU WOULD WANT TO TRAVEL WITH. . . stop letting the hassle of planning a vacation keep you from getting away.
Let me help you take care of everything so you can enjoy your vacation with your family.
When Mr. Walt Disney decided to add world to his last name and create in Florida, he and all of his imaginers really made sure you were in a world. A world of fantasy, imagination, futuristic technology, and creation. You really are immersed into a whole new world (see what I did there?).
When visiting you get to experience four different theme parks. You can also immerse yourself into shopping and dining in Disney Springs.
You can start at Magic Kingdom where you step into the fantasy world of all the princesses, then take the monorail over to EPCOT where you literally travel the world in just a few miles and engage in futuristic technology and space travel. When you land back on Earth, you can take the Skyliner over to Hollywood Studios and explore old time Hollywood or a galaxy far, far away. When the Millenium Falcon brings you back from that galaxy you can head over to hang with Woody and Buzz in Toy Story Land.
If you are missing those fur babies at home, you can head over to Animal Kingdom where you can travel to Africa for a three-week ride through the African wilderness. Feeling adventurous? Head over to Everest and join a team headed to hunt for the yeti.
Disney Springs offers great dining options from casual to fine dining. Lots of great shopping and it is not limited to just those amazing Disney souvenirs. There is entertainment and night life for those who did not get worn out at the parks.
Disney has so much to offer for the young and retired. You really do step into a world of Disney and it does not disappoint on any level.
Your goals are very personal, especially if we are talking about priorities that give life meaning and a purpose. But, studies found that people who shared their goals with others showed better commitment to fulfilling their objectives.
In my experience, what the research says about sharing your goal with someone is not only accurate, but it also makes you more motivated. In addition, it holds you accountable, and you may even receive unexpected help and support.
Beyond that, the more you share it, the more you will also reaffirm your dedication to yourself.
If you are a little timid to share with your closest friends and family, you can start with me!
I would love to be your accountability buddy, check in on your progress, and help you book those vacations when you are ready.
All you need to do is schedule a call!
In my last blog, I shared a great way to ensure you are continuously investing in your vacation.
If you missed it, make sure you go back and check it out. There are some great tips and resources there, and I hope they inspired you to sit down, create your budget and designate a special vacation savings account.
