Walt Disney World® Resort; Disney Cruise Line; Aulani; Universal Orlando Resort™
Cross country road trips are how it all started. That’s when the love of travel set in for David. Specifically, at 10 years old, he and his family took a multi-week road trip from Texas, through New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and on to California and back. For a small-town kid, experiencing all these new places was an amazing feeling of excitement. Ultimately, walking into Disneyland® Park with his family at 10 years old was the pinnacle of his adventure, and an indescribable feeling of joy.
Working in college athletics and software implementations gave David valuable skills in planning, coordination, and communication. As an added benefit, those positions allowed numerous opportunities to travel for work. On every business trip, David would strive to fit in all of the sites and sounds of each unique destination. He sought out the best under-the-radar spots, especially when it came to food! Go where the locals go! David then met his wife Melissa, who shares that same passion for travel. Now they travel every chance they get.
The biggest impetus for becoming a travel advisor for David was becoming a father. He loved seeing his children’s eyes light up the first time they saw Cinderella’s Castle. It brought back all that magic he experienced when he was 10 years old, discovering Disneyland for the first time. Since then, David and his family have had yearly trips to Walt Disney World® Resort. Each time they visit, they make sure to stay at a different resort hotel, spend time exploring new attractions, and shop for new souvenirs. What they love most of all is trying all of the unique foods! They have also branched out with trips to Aulani in Hawaii, Disney Cruise Line, and Universal Orlando Resort.
David is a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge as well as a certified Universal Orlando Resort Specialist. Traveling frequently with children has given him invaluable experience in planning fantastic family vacations. David especially focuses on the concierge part of your experience, tailoring every aspect of your trip to meet your needs, and being there every step of the way, from planning, through traveling, and upon your return home.
