I have always loved to travel and enjoy planning and researching family vacations. Travel was always more of a hobby until 9/11 as I was working in New York City that day. I remember what a beautiful morning it was as I was traveling in via the train from New Jersey, looking at the view of NYC and thinking that I kept forgetting to bring my camera with me so I could take some photos of the beautiful downtown NYC skyline.
So many little details happened that day that if one thing had changed, my husband Mark or I might not be here today. Long story short, that was the day that I truly realized how short life can be. And you need to find your passion and if you are as lucky, as I am, be able to take your passion and make it your career.
Mickey Magic Vacations is based in Wayne, New Jersey. With over fifteen years in the travel industry, working primarily in the corporate sector, I found my true calling helping busy moms and dads plan their family vacations. My enthusiasm for planning travel for others has not diminished over the years. My goal is to make the planning process easy while always looking for the best value.
About nine years ago my passion for Walt Disney World led me to begin specializing in Disney Destinations. Disney World in Orlando, Florida can be very overwhelming. While many people might have visited Disney World as a child, they are amazed to see how much it has changed, and continues to change every year. I find that working one-on-one with clients and listening to their needs and desires helps me point them in the right direction.
Clients who make the yearly trek to Disney may not need planning assistance but still want to work with me because they know that I will save them time and monitor all bookings, automatically lowering the price if a special is released or go over their options with them. Disney controls the pricing — they will always offer the lowest price and release specials and discounts as they see fit.
Mickey Magic Vacations is affiliated with Montrose Travel, a leader in the travel industry that has been in business for over 50 years and is established as a Top 50 Travel Management Company. Montrose Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner as well as a proud member of IATAN, CLIA, OSSN, NACTA, ARC and Ensemble Travel Group.
My Travel Designer philosophy also helps families when it comes to cruise vacations as well. With so many cruise ships offering such a wide range of sailings from the numerous cities they depart from, choosing the right cruise can be very overwhelming for anybody. Being affiliated with Montrose Travel, I can offer a huge variety of group rate sailings as well as a promise that if you find a lower price sailing, once you email me their quote, Montrose will not only do everything they can to match it but will see if they can lower it as well.
