Gift Giving (ANYTIME of Year) Made Easy!

With the holiday season in full swing, a lot of people start thinking about gift giving. I'd love to help you plan the gift of Disney for you and your family!

If you'd like to do the parks and resorts in Orlando, or see the sights in Disneyland or even Aulani - a Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii, I'm here to help!
I also specialize in the award winning Disney Cruise Line vacations that you may have heard a lot about. (And P.S.: They are sailing in and out of NYC again for 2017 with a Marvel Day at Sea...!)

Best part: My vacation planning services are 100% free. I do it all: from recommending FastPasses, dining and itineraries to "must see" attractions and selecting the best resort for you and your family. A Walt Disney World vacation is a simple $200 deposit down and payment in full due 30 days prior to check-in.

Disney Cruises are a 20% deposit, with most itineraries being due 90 days prior to sailing. Plus, all Disney Cruise sailings are eligible for on board credit and sail from various ports of call with amazing Port Adventures to experience and enjoy.

Of course, I'm happy to go over all the details and help you every step of the way!

Focused on Fun

Nothing beats my son getting super excited counting down the days until our next Disney adventure. In fact, our son, Jack, tells just about everyone -with or without prompting -exactly how many days it will be to our next Disney cruise.

Granted, what his mom does for a job has a little bit of an advantage: we're always planning our next vacation!

Which brings me to why I think anyone traveling to a Disney resort or cruise, should have the confidence to work with a vacation planner or travel agent that has that kind of first-hand knowledge. 

We travel a LOT with Disney Cruise Line and to the resorts. This year alone, our family is traveling on 4 cruises! (We've completed 2 of the 4 as of this blog post!)

When you book your vacation with me, I'm focused on you and your family - and can offer those insider tips and tricks that you're not going to get if you book it on your own.

Plus, did you know that it takes the average person over 65 hours to plan out their own Disney vacation?

Think about that!!

And we work on your behalf, monitoring your reservations, trying to get you the best deal and adding pixie dust along the way --- all for free. You don't have to do all of those hours of searching, uncovering, questioning and stressing over what should be a fun family experience.

And I love that I'm a part of Hi Ho Vacations. You should know that when you work with me, you're supporting a small office that is run like a family. (Well, we are actually a family that gets a long!)

We're just a handful of agents with so much experience in our small team -we get things done and with our clients in mind. We go to one another with questions and make it our business to learn and keep learning about high quality service.

We all love Disney and share our family experiences across social media and enjoy so much of what we do.

When you make your reservations with us, you're supporting other families - not a corporation. And we also give back to our community through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, too.

If you want to know more about how I can help you with your Disney vacation, please ask away! There's no obligation or anything. I love to talk Disney and will be here when you're ready.

If you want to fill out a form for an online, free quote check the tabs above for resorts or cruises. If you need Adventures by Disney or Aulani, send me a quick email: - you can also find me on my Facebook page, too -and send me a message if you'd like.

I look forward to hearing from you... and even while I'm on my vacation, I check in too... and oh!

We're at 33 days and counting!

Ready to focus on YOUR family fun? Let's do this!

Walt's Disney's Mickey Ears (front)

It's not often you see this unique kind of auction.

Joe Franklin, the late New York City-based radio personality collected a myriad of items from iconic celebrities over the years he spent as a broadcaster. It was said that the stars would bring him a souvenir to add to his collection as a gift for being on his show.

Franklin, who died in 2015 at age 88, was said to have hosted more than 300,000 guests during his decades-long career. He has items from Marilyn Monroe, James Cagney and even a pair of Walt Disney's Mickey ears!

Get the Latest 2017 Disney Cruise Line Updates

People ask me all a lot, "When is the best time to book a Disney Cruise?"
The answer is simple: On opening day!
The sooner the cruise is booked the better. Why? There are a lot of factors. Length of cruise and time of year are a part of it, of course. However, a huge part of pricing is based on inventory. The more popular a cruise, the higher the prices will be. If on opening day, cruises start to sell out stateroom categories quickly, prices will likely increase as well. 
If you're interested in a 2017 Disney Cruise, please be sure to get on the my mailing list for the release dates. I will be sure to contact you with the dates and itineraries and you can unsubscribe at any time.
And bonus: If you book directly through me via Hi Ho Vacations, you'll receive on board credit (aka OBC). OBC can be used for most valid charges incurred while on the Disney Cruise including gratuities, alcoholic beverages, Disney ship board and Castaway Cay spa treatments, photographs, souvenirs and more. 
Have a magical day!

Disney Vacation Planning for You

Visiting Cars Land in Disneyland, California

I am a mom of 3. I've always been the planner in the house. I especially enjoy planning our family vacations!

I've been a fan of Disney for decades. As a young child, the greatest anticipated trip was going to Florida and California to visit Mickey Mouse! My dad drove the family everywhere - never did we take an airplane! So imagine knowing you're going to Disney, but we won't be there for at least two days... the agony as a little kid was almost unbearable, but so exciting all at once.

Because of this fascination as a child, and as a big travel planner for my own family and friends' vacations, I joined Hi Ho Vacations as one of their vacation planners. I've been to the Disney College of Knowledge and continue to learn all about the ins and outs of the resorts, the parks and of course those magical cruises.

Our family has been to a variety of the resorts from the Grand Floridian to the Art of Animation - we've seen it all. But my favorite Disney vacation to date: the Disney cruises.

Disney Cruise Line defines a vacation for everyone in the family. In fact, single parents and couples traveling sans kiddos, and grandparents are a common site. There is something on board for absolutely everyone.

What we love to do most: go to the parks a few days before going on a relaxing cruise. The Disney "Land and Sea" package is what every family should try to experience. It's where you'll understand the "Disney Difference" with your vacation.

Our services are completely free to you. Hi Ho planners price monitor for all of their clients to get the best deal -even after you've already made a reservation! We also offer on board credit for Disney Cruise Line - up to $1000 per stateroom!

When you use me as your personal concierge, you get someone who is experienced with all things Disney. You'll also get highly personalized service that is just for you!

Plus, did you know that the AVERAGE time invested in planning a Disney vacation on your own is 65 hours? Most people simply don't have the time or patience for that.

If you have questions or would like to get a free, no-obligation quote, use my contact forms on this website, email or call (407) 917-5577. I'm happy to assist you with making your Disney dream vacation come true.

Have a magical day!

A Disney VIP Experience Awaits! Are YOU Ready?

When you travel to worldwide destinations on an Adventures by Disney vacation you do much more than sightsee. You experience firsthand the people and cultures of the places you visit—and you do so with the service, VIP experiences and unique local opportunities you can only expect from Disney.
You can explore Australia, Southeast Asia, take a European River Cruise, Peru, France, Greece, and even backstage in Hollywood, California. There's so many possibilities, I can't even begin to make a list!
