Mission: Creating magical experiences to any destination with integrity, knowledge and passion.

Operating as usual

I can't believe it's been 19 years since the 9/11 attacks. It's interesting how all of us remember that day so vividly.

I remember being on a work trip at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne, Florida, watching the news while getting ready for my morning meeting. The rest of the day and the days following were so bizarre because I was "stuck" such a beautiful location while so much darkness was happening at home in the DC area, NY and PA. With the airports closed, we used our rental cars and made the long drive back home several days later.

Exactly one month later, on October 11, we decided to keep our scheduled trip to Italy. When we saw the military with their heavy armory at the airport, it was definitely a reminder that our world was a different place.

What are your memories from 9/11/01?

If you have not seen Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom, it's something you do not want to miss on your next Walt Disney World visit. Here you can discover a beautiful land that celebrates the magic of nature.

One of the must-do attractions in Pandora is Avatar Flight of Passage. It's such a unique ride experience combining 3D effects and ride simulation. You truly feel like you are riding on the back of a mountain banshee flying above the forest with drops and turns along the way. Even my 5-year old nephew claimed it was his very favorite ride at Walt Disney World!

Due to its popularity and slow loading procedures, the wait time for this ride can be quite long. It's not unusual to see at least 1-2 hours of wait time posted. When you are ready to plan your next visit to Walt Disney World, I will give you ALL the TIPS you need to minimize your wait time.

Have you ridden Avatar Flight of Passage? What would you give it on a scale of 1 to 10?

Enjoy your long weekend everyone :)

Have you heard the news?! 📰 This week, many of the U.S. airlines have decided to eliminate their change fees permanently! Now you will have peace of mind knowing that you can change your flights without penalty should you decide to modify your travel plans at a later date.

Here are the following airlines who currently have no change fee policies:
✈️ United Airlines
✈️ American Airlines
✈️ Delta Airlines
✈️ Alaska Airlines
✈️ Southwest Airlines

Most airlines will only waive their change fees for domestic flights but some have expanded it to other nearby regions like Mexico and the Caribbean. Some airlines will also refund the difference if your airfare is reduced. It's also important to note that change fees will not be waived for basic economy tickets.

🙋If you have any questions about these exciting new changes, feel free to submit them below or send me a message. Happy flying!

A beautiful clear day at Iceland's Ice Lagoon to check out its ghostly procession of luminous blue icebergs.

Hi there! 👋 If we have not spoken before, I'm glad you have joined my page where I love to discuss luxury vacations with Disney and other family friendly destinations, where parents and kids can feel like royalty! 👑

You possibly don't know much about me so I wanted to introduce myself to you.

Hi! 😊 I'm Lissa Ryan with Kingdom Destinations and I love musicals!

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved listening to Disney music on my record player ...because back in the "olden" days, we didn't have VCRs to watch Disney movies all day long 😆. Some of my favorite musicals as a child were Annie, Peter Pan, Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof. I'll never forget when my parents surprised me with front row seats to see Annie on Broadway - it was the happiest day of my 8 year old life!

My husband and I share our love of musicals together and we try to see at least 1 or 2 shows a year. My favorite musical of all-time is Phantom of the Opera! 🎭 We even incorporated the music into our wedding ceremony.

Some other favorites of mine include Les Miserables, Wicked, Jersey Boys and Hamilton (which I currently can't stop watching on Disney+!) My favorite all-time Disney musical is Frozen and I was so sad to hear it closed on Broadway during the pandemic.

Do you love musicals like me? Which are your favorites?

August 31st already? Where did your summer go? :)

Little visited and largely unknown, the Bisti Badlands is an amazingly scenic and colorful expanse of undulating mounds and unusual eroded rocks. It's hidden away in New Mexico's high desert in the northwest. Interested in a little adventure?

It's the end of summer but today let's celebrate National Beach Day!

I believe a day at the beach is better than any type of therapy.

Let's see YOUR beach photos in the comments below.

All About Me!

My name is Lissa Ryan and I am an Travel Advisor / Team Leader with Kingdom Destinations, LLC. My business is located in Herndon, Virginia in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

I was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in the small town of Ridgefield, Connecticut. I graduated college at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia and fell in love with the area (not to mention my husband who I’ve been married to for over 20 years!) Our family consists of our two children ages 15 and 10 who constantly amaze us with their love and admiration for each other.

The four of us have traveled to many destinations over the years, but the one place we can always agree on is Disney! We started our vacations at the Disney parks when my daughter was only 11 months old. She was not a very good on-the-go napper, but we have fond memories of her falling asleep on “it’s a small world” - which is ironically one of her favorite rides today! Every time we visit the parks, we have such a fun experience and the memories we create are ones that will last a lifetime.

When we are not on vacation, my family and I enjoy having “family game nights” and each one of us takes turns selecting a game to play that night. Currently, our favorites are Telestrations and Apples to Apples (the Disney version of course!)

In my spare time, I love decorating cakes -especially children’s themed cakes! Many days you will find me at my local gym where I enjoy taking fitness classes like yoga, dance, barre, etc. One year, I even won a gym sponsored contest with a free trip to Hawaii because I “checked in” to my gym on Facebook enough times to qualify for the drawing! How lucky is that?! I also do a lot of volunteer work with my children’s schools and and I am very involved in their after school activities.

Before I started my adventure as a Travel Agent, I was a Senior Marketing Manager at Sprint and then took some time off to raise my children full-time. Today, I am happy to say that I have found my dream job planning vacations for families! It is so exciting to talk to clients who are looking for a memorable family trip where they can escape and re-connect. I love to be that person who can help make their vacation dreams come true!

Whether you are looking for a trip to a Disney park, a cruise, all-inclusive resort or a guided international tour, I will help you along the way. My planning services are included when you book a trip with me. With Kingdom Destinations, your vacation magic awaits!
