Meet Cathi Marcheskie Maziarz
Walt Disney World® Resort; Disneyland® Resort; Universal Orlando® Resort
Ever since she was a little girl watching “The Wonderful World of Disney” every Sunday night, Cathi has been fascinated with the Disney theme parks. She always wanted to be a Mouseketeer and visit Walt Disney World. She finally experienced Walt Disney World during her high school senior class trip in 1982—it was love at first sight. That was the first of countless trips to Walt Disney World with her family and friends.
Her most magical experience at Walt Disney World was when her daughter was seven years old. They entered the Magic Kingdom to find a parade in full swing on Main Street U.S.A., delighting her daughter who thought it was in her honor! Cathi wants everyone to experience such a magical moment.
Cathi is an experienced professional when it comes to chaperoning high school bands performing in Walt Disney World parades, choruses participating in Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, and dance groups performing at Downtown Disney. Her goal is to help your group, no matter the size or reason for going, experience everything Disney has to offer. And helping people celebrate the special occasions such as a birthday or milestone anniversary at Walt Disney World is one of her specialties.
With a lifetime goal of traveling to every Disney Destination possible, Cathi, a Disney College of Knowledge graduate, continues her Disney education by visiting Disney Destinations many times every year—trips that help Cathi help you experience your own magical Disney vacation.
“The thought of going to Disney World and planning our own itinerary was complete overwhelming to me. It seems so much more complicated (with so many options! and things you have to do in advance!) So we immediately decided to use a concierge service like Glass Slipper.
We began our Disney vacation planning with another member of Glass Slipper and were very pleased with her thoughtful questions, recommendations, and help with our dinner reservations. However, she moved on to another opportunity in the midst of our planning, and Cathi stepped in. I appreciated how quickly Cathi got up to speed on our vacation and reached out to me to make sure she understood our expectations. Our itinerary was well-thought out and accommodated everything that we hoped for. We appreciated all of the tips and suggestions for each day and ideas for how to manage getting through each park both systematically, but also with great flexibility for in-the-moment decisions. What I most appreciated was Cathi’s accessibility while we were on our trip to answer quick in the moment issues or questions.
I would absolutely recommend Glass Slipper, and especially Cathi Marcheskie for future vacation planning.”

“When my wife and I wanted to take our son to Disney with only 2 months notice we knew it would be a challenge. Neither of us had been to Disney in over 20 years and we had no idea where to go and how to make the most of our 6 days. I had heard horror stories of families who save all year to go to Disney, only to be frustrated by the inability to get a reservation, waiting in long lines, and spending half their time planning where to go next instead of enjoying time with their loved ones.
In comes Cathi Marcheskie with Glass Slipper Concierge. She asked us a detailed set of questions to help us select a hotel, meals, parks, and even specific rides.She even reviewed the Disney app with us so we could navigate more easily. When we were at the park we were at ease knowing where we were going next and that if there were any bumps in the road we could call her to help out. Thanks for making our Disney trip truly magical!”

“Loved our trip to Disney World!! Cathi took care of the whole trip. From booking our room, to scheduling our fast passes, and to providing us with a list of some of the best places to eat throughout the theme parks. She provided us with so many helpful tips, and everything went so smoothly. There is so much to do at Disney, that you need an experienced person who knows all about Disney, and can tell you how to utilize your time for the best magical experience possible. I would recommend Cathi to anyone planning a trip to Walt Disney World. Get the best and contact Cathi.”

“This is the first time that we had to plan the trip ourselves and I was WAY overwhelmed. I can’t make decisions and I am always afraid I am going to choose poorly and miss the fun stuff…Cathi Marcheskie Maziarz helped me this time and she handled EVERYTHING! Seriously EVERYTHING! From hotel, fast pass, dining and spa reservations, to tips on extra fun stuff not to miss (free scavenger hunts, Pirate Cruise, animal tours, free events that go on at each hotel in the evening). She knew what rides would be down during our visit, she has mapped out our dining and fast pass rezzies to co ordinate so we are not running all over creation trying to get places. She made a Disney care package up for the kids to keep them busy on the plane, gave Phoebe a starter set of two pins (that I added to the family lanyard), knew about hotel construction schedules and most importantly booked us the most AMAZING vacation.. that all I have to do is pack and show up for!”

“We could not be happier with Cathi M. and Glass Slipper Concierge. She took all the scariness that is a family vacation and made it one of the easiest processes we’ve ever been through. There is no way you can do your first trip to Disney without someone that has knowledge of the parks and resorts. Cathy and Glass Slipper is your inside person. She made it so all we had to do was pack, and enjoy our vacation! Thanks Cathi!”
