I have been a fan of all things Disney since my first trip to Walt Disney World with my grandpa in 1982. After graduating from high school in New Jersey, I attended the University of Florida just to be near the Mouse. During college I worked at the Disney Store and after college I worked at the Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World. Life took me away from Disney for a while, but I couldn’t stay away. In 2007, I became an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner with a travel agency and, in 2011, I started my own travel agency, Castles & Dreams Travel. I have a contract with Disney to be one of their authorized agencies. I have been to Walt Disney World and Disneyland more times than I can count. I have been on 7 Disney Cruises (the 8th one is to Alaska in August). I also stayed at Disney’s newest resort in Hawaii, Aulani, and visited Disneyland Paris. In 2011, I went to Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands with Adventures by Disney. I am also a huge Sea World fan. My daughter wants to work for them and is attending career camp there this summer (and she is only 12!). I have been to Universal Studios and LegoLand, too. I hope you have a chance to visit some of these places while you are here in Orlando.
