There's still plenty of time to plan a fall escape for your family.
I expertly plan stress free vacations for couples, groups, and families of all sizes.
Back at our room to get ready for dinner! Such a cool room too, everything can be controlled by the dedicated iPad. 🤩 I can order room service, ask for more towels, dim the lights, change the TV channel! Sooo many things right on the iPad.
I met up with a few colleagues and we hopped on a water taxi to the park. My favorite transportation option!
A little park time to test out our arrival day touring suggestions.
So far I've met characters, watched the Horror Makeup Show, watched The Bourne Stuntacular, had a snack, rode the recently reopened Revenge of the Mummy coaster, and fought aliens with The Men in Black!
Not bad for under 4hours!
Sunrise as I flew over the clouds.
What a start to the journey!!!
Here I go again! About to board my flight to Orlando. This time for an invitation only training at Universal Orlando Resort. ⚡️I'll be meeting with Universal executives, classroom training, touring resorts, testing out park strategies, and collaborating with fellow Be Our Guest agents.
Plus some fun surprises along the way!

I'm so excited for a client ready to take their dream trip to beautiful Wyoming and Montana. They'll be immersed in nature, but still fully pampered at a luxury Dude Ranch, a few nights glamping, horseback rides, river rafting, plush transfers.
🐴Would your own family love an adventure like this?
Whew, after an afternoon exploring 6 other resorts we returned to our own, Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter, for a dip in the hot tub. Just what our feet needed.
Now we're at Disney Springs for dinner. The Polite Pig for the win!
My slider trio was brisket with fried onions, crispy fried bbq chicken, and pulled pork with housemade slaw. SO good.
During our visit to Grand Floridian we had lunch at the oh-so-relaxing Grand Floridian Cafe. The Butternut Squash Soup with Roasted Pepitas was sooooo good.
Our table was against a window, providing views of the courtyard filled with colorful flowers.
Of course we popped into the villas building, were recently remodeled rooms await. Check out the friendly penguin fountain and adorable nod to Mary Poppins in the floral furniture!
Another Magic Kingdom morning!
Now I'm heading out on a self-guided tour of some resorts; to check on current construction progress, fresh dining options, transportation updates, and more. Staying current with first hand knowledge helps me advise my clients!
Now, that's how you end a park day!!!!
Do you like "fish n chips"? If so, Rose and Crown is a must.
✨️I can even book a dinner package here that puts you right at the waters edge for a breathtaking view of the EPCOT fireworks from your private table!
This chalk art, yall. I'm mesmerized! Created live throughout the day, by various Disney artists. 🎨***Check out the amazing 3D portrait in the last few pics, I took it from various angles so you can see the effect!****
My Donald's a little....we'll say "tired", lol! Or maybe he had a couple drinks around the world at World Showcase 😂
But, I had a BLAST at Animation Academy, learning to draw him step by step.
EPCOT's lnternational Festival of the Arts today! Of course our first stop was the outdoor kitchens around World Showcase.
Which of our samples so far would you try?
🍴 Brie in a homemade bread bowl
🍴 Chorizo potato empanada w/ turmeric aioli
🍴 Mozzarella Frita w/ artist palette sauces
🍴 Wild mushroom ravioli with truffle butter
🍴 Carne asada w/ sweet potato puree
Disney fireworks are the BEST fireworks.
🎆🎇This isn't even the grand finale.
Dinner at Story Book Dining at Artist Point was SO much fun!
I met D***y!!! And Grumpy, Snow White, and the Evil Queen, too.
🍰Dessert was partially served from a smoke filled treasure box, the characters danced at times, the enchanted forest changed color throughout dinner, and the Queen made the most dramatic entrance.
This is a stellar character meal!
Today's all about Magic Kingdom. I chose the park with the most attractions intentionally, because I'm testing out Genie+ changes and strategies!
So far I've:
🏰Reserved the best seat in the park (front row with a castle background, check out those pics) for the Festival of Fantasy Parade
🎠Ridden 11 (yes, eleven) rides
🚂Circled the park on the recently reopened Walt Disney World Railroad
🌮Had a delicious lunch
🎉Met Mickey, Mulan and the rarely seen Peter Pan
🎁Some shopping on Main Street USA
...and then ran into some surprise friends, Daisy, Chip, and Dale, at our resort just now as we returned for an afternoon break!
✨️I help my clients have wildly successful days, just like this one!!!
I'm back at Walt Disney World for a few days of learning and fun! Day one was filled with time at our adorable resort, themed after the French Quarter (hello beignets), and enjoying Disney Springs (just a boat ride away).
Can you imagine yourself aboard a luxury train through Scotland? It’s a vacation that’s a mix of adventure and relaxation as you admire the Highland views and breathe in the bracing Scottish air, taking in the mountains and glens, lochs and ancient forests.
If you want to travel to Scotland, I'd love to create a seamless itinerary personalized for your family.
Go big or go home! The Rolls Royce Sushi Platter from Splitsville - Disney Springs is a sharable poke bowl with spicy ahi tuna, avocado, mango, edamame and seaweed salad, along with three deluxe rolls: Super Tuna, Golden Spider and Yum Yum Rolls.
Wow! I'm feeling excited, surprised, grateful, humble, proud...all the emotions.
⭐️Last week our agency had a 2022 annual recap meeting, where I was honored with THREE spectacular awards.

I can't wait to show you this one. An entire all inclusive resort focused on the art of Mexico!
Guests can enjoy classes for painting, pottery, textiles, and more. Dining is art on a plate, and live entertainment happens every night with a nod to the Mexican culture.
Of course there's an amazing beach, pools, and access to waterparks, ziplining, ruins tours, sailing, and tons more if you feel like some fun in the sun...all included as well!!!
Oh wait, did I mention it's adults only and every room gets a Butler! Yup.
I'm in love. It's so unique!
I'm not a coffee drinker, but ice tea is my "wake up" drink each morning. Somehow it tastes even better in front of the castle in Magic Kingdom.
🥤I'll be back at Walt Disney World in just 1 week! Checking out Genie+ changes, exploring new attractions and dining, and taking in the International Festival of the Arts at EPCOT!!!
Spreading some joy today! I helped a client save a whopping $8,000 on airfare for their large family Hawaiian vacation, by advising a slight change to the order of their vacation stops!
