There are so many options to choose from when booking a Disney World Vacation.  It can often feel like you’re buying a new car.  Using a travel agent is always one good way to help make the best decisions for your vacation and many travel agents do not charge you any extra for their planning services when you book your vacation through them
It costs the same to book through me as it does to book directly through Disney.

My name is Melissa and I am a Disney fanatic; I’m also a travel agent.  I love trying the hotels, dining plans & many other options offered in the vacation packages and after moving to Florida with my family in 2016, we spend almost every weekend in the Disney parks.  I’m here to help you plan your next vacation at NO added cost to you and it all starts with a free quote.

After spending some time at the Run Disney Expo for the 2017 Marathon, I am convinced that this is one of the most amazing Runner events around.  There was so much to do that you could easily spend a few hours shopping and touring around the Expo at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex.  Cigna is the 2017 sponsor and they have done such a marvelous job at it.  They offered free airbrush tattoos, runner belts, cheer cards and more.  There was so much to look at that even if you do not run in the Run Disney Marathon, you may want to plan a few hours just visiting the Expo.

I’m looking forward to my personal experience with Run Disney in April for the Star Wars Half Marathon.

My name is Melissa and I now live in Florida, I’m also a travel agent.  If you are interested in any of the Run Disney events, contact me to book your Disney vacation package today!  It all starts with a free, no obligation quote.
