“Shannon is a true expert of ALL things Disney! Her knowledge of all of the different parks including accommodations, rides, shows, various attractions, and restaurants was truly immeasurable! Shannon took the time to carefully plan our itinerary that included reserving our hotel accommodations at the wonderful Port Orleans Riverside resort and booking our reservations at popular Disney restaurants that can be difficult to get into! The food was fabulous at every place that she recommended! She also booked all of our fast passes enabling us to see everything without waiting in long lines! By scheduling our fast passes close together, instead of running back and forth through the parks, we were able to enjoy everything that Disney had to offer! . . . Thank you so much Shannon! Our family had a wonderful time at Disney and we can’t wait to go back!!”

“Our family experienced the greatest vacation of our life! First time going since late 70’s and now I had opportunity to take my 7 & 8 year olds. I was afraid I’d pick the wrong fast passes, maybe not eat enough, etc.. I’ve also read so many bad reviews on Disney.. With that said, Shannon absolutely planned out the absolute most perfect itinerary. We booked a couple weeks prior to spring break and nothing was left out! In fact we hit 3 parks in 1 day and had food to take home on the plane! The saddest part of the vacation was having to leave. We miss it and look forward to the next one! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SHANNON! I absolutely know this vacation wouldn’t have been the same had we not booked through you!”

“Shannon was referred to us to help us plan our Disney Trip over Columbus Day weekend 2018. She was extremely personable, professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. With her guidance and insight, we were able to enjoy our Disney trip, knowing that everything was thought out and planned in advance. She checked in with us while we were there, and she was able to make a last minute change in our meal plan, which ended up being a fantastic benefit for us! We recommend Shannon highly, and we will certainly look to use her assistance in the future, with any trips we should plan. Top notch service!”
