I am a travel agent for Magical Moments Vacations. My concierge services are free to you and will plan all of your itinerary, transfers, hotels and even provide tips and resources for the most magical vacations to destinations all over the World!
Between writing about Disney and my personal love of travel and Disney, I continue to find opportunities to fill my hours with new and fun adventure. I fell in love with travel planning and making magic happen for others and decided this was to be my career. I am a full-time travel planner extraordinaire and I love it. Do what you love in life and the rest will fall in place. I am so lucky and most days I have to pinch myself to prove this is really what I get paid to do! Now, do not get me wrong it is hard work making everyone happy but hard work, for me, is fun when it involves travel. You will see a lot of posts and info about Disney because I love it and it is one of my many specialties. As well, Disney has a lot of info out there and needs a lot of planning. In addition, I have traveled all over to the smallest towns and largest cities and can help you map out your travels anywhere. People at times question why one may need a travel planner - let me put you in touch with a past client or list it out all the extras you get. It is amazing how people just have no idea all the opportunities out there and how a travel agent (a good one!) can lead you to them. I offer my concierge services for free to any of my clients. I not only will give you a leg up on the planning (I know ALL the special rates and promos) but if you get to your destination and have a problem...let me fight it for you! You worry about nothing and I get to help give you that - I am a giver, a caretaker, a nurse for all those stressful times in your life when you just need to get away!

If you have been following along you know I went on a beautiful Princess ship recently, the Regal Princess. If you are even thinking about a cruise, read on and contact me.
Tomorrow, November 26th ONLY, book for a $1 deposit. And, until December 10th, save big whether you sail soon or sail later during the Princess Cyber Event (booking dates Nov. 26-Dec. 10). Want more? Sure, you'll enjoy FREE Wi-Fi as well.
Contact me now for more info and I may even loan you the $1!
I spent my evening having a nice dinner and being “appreciated” by Sandals and Beaches Resorts for selling there property (which really isn’t too hard as they are beautiful). So really THANK YOU to my clients that have trusted me with booking their vacations to Sandals and Beaches this year. I also won one of the three door prizes (which I never win anything so I was pretty excited). 😂 I also saw some video of some awesome updates AND learned some exciting things that are coming soon. If you want to hear about it, give me a shout.
How many of you have this? It is lucky that there is such an easy treatment.
Hard Rock Resorts is having a HUGE sale! These family friendly resorts are a great answer to what will make the whole family have a great vacation.
They just opened a new property in Cabo and also have great resorts in Mexico and Punta Cana.

SOUTHWEST VACATIONS SPECIAL!
Save up to $250 (plus additional hotel savings may be available). This special promotion needs to be booked by October 21, 2019, but you have until April 12, 2020 to travel (so think Spring Break? Or a Holiday Trip?)
Southwest doesn’t fly from your home city? Well, this is one of many promotions that I currently have at my fingertips. Or you can likely find a Southwest gateway within a few hours drive and it may be worth it to drive a few hours to catch a memory.
Where can you go? Anywhere Southwest flies - which now includes Cabo, Costa Rica, Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos and even more!
Or want to stay in the US? I just booked a great trip for a couple to the Southwest USA - they are visiting Sedona, Phoenix, Grand Canyon and more! They are taking a train round trip from Williams, AZ to the Grand Canyon and staying at the lodge inside the park. I put together the flights and rental car and hotels via Southwest Vacations and then added the train and Grand Canyon portions separately.
Just to note - in addition to booking the trip, I also provide dining and things to do recommendations, booked tours for them on the ground and more. My concierge services don’t just stop at the confirmation of your travel needs. I can be as involved as you want or need. If you love to plan, then fantastic- you can still do that - no time? Well leave it to me and sit back and enjoy your trip.
As long as you are booking your trip with me there is no additional fee to plan your fantastic memories and it doesn’t cost you any extra to work with me.
Have questions? Please contact me at [email protected] or call me at 404-997-9458.
There’s definitely still time to book last minute Fall deals! Are you regretting not having anything planned? I’ve booked today two last minute families to go on some fantastic trips. There is still even promotional pricing available!
One family is headed to Universal to stay at the new Aventura Resort in a very cool Kids Suite!
Another client that decided to take advantage of a last minute special booked the Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World! This resort is the only resort that you can actually walk to the Magic Kingdom.
Don’t regret sitting home during Fall Break and go make some memories!

I’m meeting tomorrow with my Sandals and Beaches Rep and will share some fun things later! But for now - if you are looking for a family-friendly, all inclusive resort in the Caribbean- well you can’t beat Beaches Resorts. They have three fantastic locations in Turks and Caicos, Ochos Rios, and Negril.
There is something fun for everyone at these beautiful resorts! I would love to help you find your next vacation. It’s not too late for Fall break or the holidays.
I finally started sending my newsletters! If you do not get one but want one, let me know!! I am going to share here as well (for now!) So, if you want all the latest deals on travel everywhere - then message me for a newsletter.
Super cool - there is a super secret (well until they told me) Stranger Thing themed room at Universal Orlando this Fall (open now). It’s only accessible if you are staying in property at Universal Orlando (but that’s okay because they have great resorts).
If you want to know more and how to get access to all the secret things let me know!
Oogie Boogie! 96% edible -made with rice crispy, fondant and royal icing! This is in Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa.
Learning lots at Disneyland to help you traverse al the amazing fun, new things Disney has to offer! Right now we are learning all about Disney Cruise Line (which I like a lot of cruise lines but I do love Disney Cruises). Plus they gave us some cute gifts that are very appreciate. All the gifts...
Ireland is wonderful and a fantastic place to explore! Right now is a great time to book a trip to Ireland because there are some great deals! Let me know if you are interested in visiting Ireland or anywhere else.
Visitors to Ireland in the fall (and even winter) will enjoy more affordable accommodations and fewer crowds, while still experiencing the warmth of an Irish welcome. Book flight and hotel packages with an optional car rental to save up to to $200 per booking.
Getting to Ireland is easy with Delta Air Lines® nonstop flights, offering year-round service from New York City (JFK) to Dublin, and seasonal service from Boston to Dublin, Atlanta to Dublin, and JFK to Shannon.†
I’m at Sandals training making sure I keep up my Certified Sandals Specialist designation. It’s worth it even though I had to wake up at 6am and sit in lots of traffic.
Sana’a Bread Service. Done. It’s just so fantastic.
Have not even ordered dinner yet but had to figure out dessert first (so I can decide what dinner to order to make sure to have room!)
This should be easy! But where in the World am I?
[08/03/19] I’m lucky my husband’s nephew chose Orlando to go to college! He is graduating this weekend and I get to celebrate his huge achievements at the same time as a quick jaunt to Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando to check out a few new things and resorts to share all the new shiny things with YOU!
What??? Yes Universal just announced today that they are building a new park (a real one and not a water park that they call a theme park an the same as the actual theme parks - just to throw some shade lol!)
But this is the real deal Epic Universe is coming!
Our Universe is expanding. See concept art for Universal's #EpicUniverse at http://bit.ly/2ZpRFcu
As promised - Here is the magic for Walt Disney World! I have been up since 4:00 am working to save you money! It's Disney Fall promo day! I have been going at it trying to save you some money or add some perks and upgrades to your booking.
This is one of the benefits of using me as your TA and for booking early!
Even some of the popular blogger sites haven't released the news yet!
If you are my client and traveling between September and December 2019, if the discount applies then I am already on it! I will warn it is VERY limited and if you booked early, then those early booking savings are most likely better than discounts (and this one). So, you will receive an email from me letting you know if you are eligible or not if you are already booked.
If you are not booked for Fall 2019 - then this is the time! Jump on it as Free Dining is available for certain dates and a room discount for others. Email me at [email protected] or message me here!
Wonder what it could be?
I am so excited for these Cast Members!
disneyparks.disney.go.com Imagine your normal work day is transformed with news that you’ll soon be traveling to a galaxy far, far away. That’s exactly what happened to a select group of Walt Disney World cast members who recently learned they had been chosen for the opening crew of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney.....
No shame in my camping game.
[06/14/19] If anyone is looking for a 2 bedroom villa in Hilton Head Island, SC this Summer or Fall (my favorite time to go) to rent for a week or so let me know. We have a few weeks available and it is a fantastic vacation destination. Let me know your email and I can provide more info!
Finally. I know it’s hard to wait, but the wait is almost over! Message me to add to my list- if you haven’t already. 2020 is going to be a great year!
Contact me to be added to my list!
I would love to set you up for a trip to Paradise.
Still time to book a fantastic Summer Vacation.

It’s time to book Walt Disney World, for the Fall, if you haven’t already! I predict this new show is going to make Halloween very popular. I’m excited!
For the first time in 14 years, we’re introducing a brand-new, Halloween fireworks spectacular to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park!
Have a Magical Easter!
I know a family that’s going to have a great cruise soon!
Don’t miss out on this great promotion!
For my Paris travelers this looks interesting-

I had the best time having an “adult Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique type” makeover at the Grand Floridian with some other special Princesses. Myself and three other ladies were transformed into Cinderella (that was me!), Belle, Ariel and Snow White. We has our hair and makeup done and we were ready to spend our day at Disney. It was so much fun enjoying it together (we were all done at the same time in the same area) and we laughed and laughed. This is now one of my top recommendations for girls trips, bachelorette parties, or even mother or father/child days or fun date nights! You can pick who you want to be (even a Villain!) and they do an amazing job. It was a special day and if you want to know more - let me know and I can book your magical Disney trip and give you all my tips and tricks for making special memories.
