After the birth of my son, I decided to transition from teaching to a family-friendly career as a work-from-home travel agent. With this now being my full-time job, I enjoy teaching clients how to best get the most value out of their Disney vacation. My personal travel experience is essential in providing clients with guidance and assistance in planning the ultimate vacation.

Testimonials: 

 “Dana was very helpful in planning our Disney trip and was always quick to respond to any question we had. Her dining recommendations and fast pass recommendations were spot on! Our girls loved the personalized autograph books and we received many comments on just how adorable they were. We would definitely recommend Dana to anyone planning a Disney trip!!”    ~Whitney H. 

“Dana planned our 1 year wedding anniversary Disney trip for us. I had not been to Disney in 12 years and my husband in over 20 years. We just got home yesterday and can honestly say that we had the BEST time! From the very start, Dana's professionalism, expertise and knowledge of Disney was apparent and we trusted her suggestions and am so glad that we did. We got to each park that we wanted to see, had excellent sit down meals and her quick service meal suggestions were right on. We got all the FastPass + rides that we wanted and the experience was definitely magical, even at the ages of 30 and 38! Thanks to Dana for allowing us to celebrate such a memorable time in our lives. We will definitely be contacting you for future vacations! “   ~Arielle R.
