I am the Owner of Playtime Vacations. I grew up with parents who are both teachers and loved to take the opportunity over summer vacations to travel. Along with my siblings, we experienced vacations up and down the East Coast and into Canada. The destinations that we visited always required a trip to a National Park, and were each ended with visits to the area’s local theme park. While getting ready to head out on each trip, I would always want to know what the itinerary was. It was then that trip planning was instilled in me. My passion for as long as I can remember, has always been Disney. I was fortunate enough to work on the Disney College Program back in 1996.

Today, my husband, son and I travel at least once a year. Our favorite destination is Walt Disney World. There is something about Disney that exudes Magic, and after being so many times, we always seem to find something new.

Aside from Disney, we love to cruise! Knowing that we are going to multiple destinations, and only have to unpack once, really sweetens the pot! We have been to the Western Caribbean, a cruise to nowhere, and were surprised with a family cruise to Europe last year.

I love to help guests plan their vacations. I opened Playtime Vacations back in 2008, knowing that I could take my experiences both as a travel agent, and as a traveler, and use what I had learned (so far) to assist others with their travel plans.

Whether it is a first time visit to Walt Disney World, or a 25th Anniversary Cruise, hearing the guests say “Thank You, we had an amazing” is the reason why I do trip planning.

What is your favorite park? The Magic Kingdom
    • Who is your favorite character and why? I have always had a soft spot for Simba. When he is needed most is when he comes forward and presents who he has always been meant to be.
