Kingdom Destinations - Lissa Ryan


Can't thank Lissa enough for helping this Disney newbie out with all my plans! Absolutely loved our resort, Port Orleans Riverside. Everything went smoothly, from meeting Magic Express at the airport, to fast passes and Univnersal Studios. Thank you Lissa for making this whole thing a pleasant experience!
Lissa, thank you ever so much for meeting with Wesley and myself this evening! We are truly beginning to get excited about this once only dreamt of trip thanks to you! You are such a sweetheart and we can’t wait to plan this trip with you! 🌅
Just got back to our room to find sweet treats! Thank you- so thoughtful and yummy! 💕

I specialize in Disney Vacations for you and your family, but am able to book numerous destinations across the globe.

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

Such a great experience I had in March staying at Aventura, a Universal Orlando resort. This hotel has only been open for a couple years now and its modern design and technologically advanced amenities make it a fun and unique experience.

Each room is equipped with an IPAD which is how you can control the lights and TV, adjust the room temperature and order a pizza for room service.

You can also request extra towels or other room amenities and the Aventura ROBOT will deliver it to your room!

Bar 17 Bistro (located on the 17th floor) is Aventura's ROOFTOP bar and restaurant offering stunning views of the Universal Orlando Resort and the greater Orlando area. Pro Tip: visit Bar 17 Bistro to watch the fireworks from all the Orlando theme parks at night!

If you are looking for a place to escape this summer or want to plan a future visit, this is a great experience for the whole family.

The village of Limerick in Ireland really looks and feels like this. Very, very quaint.

An Update on Disney Resort Hotels

Here are some of the safety precautions being implemented for your next stay at a Disney Resort.

When the time is right, Chateau Montelena will be waiting with open arms for you in …. Napa, California! See? You don't have to travel far for experiences :)

Travel protection through credit card companies may only cover certain travel incidents and may only cover costs that have been paid for with that card. A travel protection plan can provide you with more coverage.

Need travel protection for a trip that you booked on your own? I can assist with that too!

My daughter and I have been doing a marathon of High School Musical this week. We are on the 3rd movie and definitely like it better than the 2nd. Which do you like better: HS Musical 2 or HS Musical 3?

It's so crazy to think that I was touring Universal Orlando Resort in March just a few days before the country began shutting down. I'm happy to see the Universal Orlando theme parks and Volcano Bay waterpark open up this week so that those guests who feel the need to get out can do so.

Like other businesses re-opening their doors, Universal Orlando Resorts is taking social distancing very seriously by reducing capacity in their hotels, parks, shows, restaurants, rides and implementing many new safety procedures. Most experiences are still available and guests are complying with the new policies including face masks and temperature scans.

I cannot say enough great things about how this resort has taken care of its' guests and I feel confident they will continue to do so moving forward.

Believe it or not, the entire island pretty much looks like this. Guess where? It's Kaua'i (aka the Garden Island) and it's Na Pali Coast. This pretty island also has more miles of sandy coastline than the other Hawaiian islands.

On my last visit to Kaua'i, I got to see this beautiful coastline high above on a helicopter ride!

Looking forward to re-connecting with friends and family in person? How about planning a future 2021 vacation together?

Let's plan somewhere a little closer to home soon. How about the Grand Canyon?

I don't know about you, but I'm very disappointed that most of the pools will be closed this summer. If you don't want your summer to go by without a pool or tropical beach vacation, I have great news to share! Beaches all-inclusive resorts will be opening soon in the Caribbean and each resort offers plenty of space for your family to practice social distancing. With so many activities and top level service, this vacation is an amazing value. Feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss the safety measures being implemented at these luxurious family friendly resorts.

Whether you are forced to cancel your trip, have a medical emergency while traveling, or your bag is stolen, travel protection can help provide you with a sense of security.

While you may have some travel coverage through your personal health insurance, credit card or other source, a third party provider can offer you more extensive coverage and higher limits.

Need travel protection for a trip that you booked on your own? I can assist with that too!

In an effort to keep travelers safe, the travel industry is working on keeping their capacity at much lower levels than normal. Plus, many travelers have already rescheduled their 2020 vacations for future dates. This means that you are going to see limited availability in hotels, airplanes, cruise ships and tours. When availability is low, demand will be high and with high demand comes higher pricing.

If you are on the fence about planning a future trip, please keep this in mind. Since many suppliers are offering very flexible cancellation policies right now, I always recommend booking now for 2021 and if necessary, rescheduling later.

The best way to see the extraordinary Hans von Altenheim and Henry Towers in Strasbourg, France is on a river cruise. Patience, they will be back.

Dreaming of a vacation? Let's get planning!

Here's something to cheer about! Next week, Universal Orlando Resort will be opening their hotels on June 2 and their theme parks will open to the public on June 5!

If you have a resort reservation at a Universal hotel, you will be guaranteed admission to the parks even if those parks hit capacity. Plus, guests staying at one of the Universal premier resorts will automatically receive express unlimited passes.

Anyone else cheering?

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!
