Erika Busser - Wishing Well Travel, Specializing in Disney Vacations

Wishing Well Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner

I have been a Disney fan since my first trip to Walt Disney World with my grandparents in 1973. One ride on It’s a Small World and I became a fan for life! Many things have changed in my life since 1973, but my love of all things Disney isn’t one of them! My husband and I have 4 children currently ranging in age from 14-22. Our family travels to Walt Disney World as often as possible. My most recent vacation to Walt Disney World was a “Princess Only” vacation to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. This coming winter we'll be doing an early celebration at Disneyland California for her Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. I am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge and have experience planning vacations involving infants, toddlers, teens, tweens, newlyweds, adults, and young-at-heart seniors. Having a larger than average family, I am very well acquainted with the difficulties of planning vacations for larger families. We have mobility and food sensitivity issues within our family as and I understand how challenging it may seem to plan vacations around these variables. I welcome these challenges and am dedicated to making sure that everyone in your group has a magical Disney vacation!

Walt Disney World released some great summer discounts this morning including a Disney Visa free dining offer in August! It’s not too late to book your summer vacation, so contact me to today so we can get planning! #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #waltdisneyworld #disneymagickingdom #epcot #disneyhollywoodstudios #animalkingdom

First-Ever Look at Creatures inside Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

I cannot wait to ride this!! The creatures look AMAZING!! Anyone else looking forward to this? See the magical creatures you’ll encounter on the new epic adventure opening June 13 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.

Did you know that Disneyland California does holiday overlays on some of their most popular attractions? The overlays for The Haunted Mansion, with the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay, and the winter wonderland holiday overlay at It’s a Small World, are definitely not to be missed! #erikawwt #itsasmallworld #nightmarebeforechristmas #disneyland #disneylandcalifornia #wishingwelltravel

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets are now on sale! This is an incredible event that I highly recommend.

Mickey’s PhilharMagic is coming to Disneyland’s California Adventure sometime this month!! This is absolutely one of my favorite attractions in Magic Kingdom so I am so excited that I’ll be able to see it at Disneyland as well! #disneyland #californiaadventure #mickeysphilharmagic #disney #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel

Escape from Gringotts is my favorite ride at the Universal Orlando parks. What’s your favorite ride or attraction? #universalorlando #universalorlandoresort #diagonalley #harrypotter #wizardingworldofharrypotter

Pop Century is my #1 pick from the value resorts category in Walt Disney World.

Did you know that the Disney Dining Plan now includes one specialty drink, like a milkshake, or an alcoholic beverage, like the yummy Lapu Lapu, where available?

Disney’s Candlelight Processional will be live from Epcot in 10 minutes!! For guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays, “The Candlelight Processional” at Epcot is a must-do, chill-evoking live musical performance that celebrates the season and leaves entire families in awe.

All-Star Movies Resort has joined Pop Century Resort in introducing newly renovated rooms! Both resorts now boast new clean lined contemporary rooms with queen sized beds, one being a pull down Murphy bed. I have stayed in the renovated rooms at Pop Century and the mattresses are so comfortable. I was really impressed! (Photo credit for the renovated All-Star Movies room goes to Amy Moore Wear) #erikawwt #allstarmovies #waltdisneyworld #wishingwelltravel

Did you know that the only way you can ride the Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando is to purchase a Park to Park ticket so you can travel from Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade and Hogsmeade to Diagon Alley? Make sure you ride the Hogwarts Express BOTH directions because the scenes are different for each ride. #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #universalstudios #wizardingworldofharrypotter #hogsmeade #diagonalley

I absolutely love these cloths!! No more messy make-up wipes leaking in your suitcase. I used them on my last trip and they were super lightweight. And the bonus is that for people like me who have super sensitive skin, no allergic break-outs!! Please contact my friend Jeanne about these wipes. She is super sweet and really knows her stuff!!

The holidays are upon us!! For those traveling, stock up on Facial Cleansing Cloths. These cloths are dry until you are ready (awesome for packing in a carry-on!) Add water and the cloth suds up with Mary Kay's cleanser. Takes off makeup easily.
I use these every night to gently and efficiently remove my makeup, then I follow up with Mary Kay's TimeWise 3D 4-in-1 cleanser. 😉

Happy Halloween! 🎃👻#erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #waltdisneyworld

One of my favorite quick service locations at the WDW parks is at Flame Tree Barbecue in Animal Kingdom. They have excellent food, and, you go all the way to the back of the seating area, there is a wonderful location overlooking the water towards Expedition Everest. It’s quiet, shaded, and peaceful. It’s a great place to take a break during the heat of the day! #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #disneysanimalkingdom #waltdisneyworld

Does this mean I get to be the conductor?? 😂 Chat with the team members in the Universal Parks! You never know what kind of magic could be in store! #wishingwelltravel #erikawwt #universalstudiosorlando #wizardingworldofharrypotter

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is absolutely amazing! My general advice: 1. avoid days when the locals will be a factor, 2. Go early(Disney has been letting people in at around 4pm with their party tickets) and stay late(watch the last parade, then the fireworks and then the midnight showing of the Hocus Pocus), and 3. Take advantage of the unique photo opportunities! Our Wishing Well Travel group of three did not leave the park until after 1am! #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #anjiewwt #mnsshp #disneyworld #magickingdom

Ticket prices for WDW are going up tomorrow and the pricing structure will be changing as well! It is not too late to book a 2019 WDW package before the pricing changes! #wishingwelltravel #waltdisneyworld #erikawwt

Hog’s Head is my new favorite place to purchase Frozen Butterbeer! It has some limited indoor seating, so it’s a great place to take a little break in the heat of the day. It is not well marked, so look down a few doors to the right of Three Broomsticks! Don’t forget to download the Universal app before your vacation! #erikawwt #wishingwelltravel #universalstudiosorlando #hogsmeade #harrypotter #wizardingworldofharrypotter #islandsofadventure #universalorlando #universalorlando

Do not miss the live entertainment in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida! Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees are AMAZING!! #wishingwelltravel #erikawwt #universalstudiosorlando #diagonalley #celestinawarbeckandthebanshees
