Here is a little information about me and my passion for Disney.I grew up with Disney in my life. When I was a child I watched the Disney Channel almost exclusively. One of my favorite shows was Dumbo’s Circus. I also adored the classic Disney short cartoons like Mickey and the Beanstalk.
My first visit to a Disney theme park was the summer before I started kindergarten in 1984. Back then the only Disney parks in Florida were the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Even though I do not remember many details since I was so young I still have fond memories. One of my most vivid memories was riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.So let us fast forward to April of 2001. I made my first trip to Disneyland in Anaheim California. Disney’s California Adventure had just opened up the month before I visited. The trip was very special to me because I got to walk in Walt Disney’s footsteps. Disneyland is the only park that Walt actually walked through. It was a very nostalgic trip.
Since December of 2004 to the present day I have made countless trips to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida. I have stayed at a wide variety of resorts and dined at many different restaurants. I am currently a member of the Disney Vacation Club with my home resort being the Animal Kingdom Villas. I am also a Disney World Annual Pass Holder.
So needless to say I have a lot of “hands on”experience planning Disney vacations for my family. I am so excited to have the opportunity to help others experience the magic of a Walt Disney World Vacation. One of my favorite things to do when planning my trips is I come up with a itinerary that lists where we will visit each day and where we will be dining each day.
It also has confirmation numbers and times for parades and fireworks.I I offer this service to my clients at no additional fee. I also tend to think of myself as a Disney “foodie” so I can steer you in the right direction for dining that will fit your taste buds as well as your budget. Again all my planning services are free to you! I do all the work so all you have to do is enjoy your vacation!
So please feel free to give me a call or email me for a free quote! I look forward to making your dream vacation come true!
Memories to last a lifetime!
My family just returned home from our Disney vacation in April. I met Amanda Jo at the Working Women’s Survival Show in St. Charles, MO. I am so glad I met her. From the beginning, she went above and beyond what I ever expected. Her enthusiasm and professional attitude made the beginning of our Disney journey very enjoyable. She took the stress of planning our 9 day trip for 14 people off our shoulders. Her help with purchasing the park tickets, memory maker and her assistance with the fast passes were extremely helpful and very much appreciated. Amanda has always made herself available to me and my family. She was always so personable and I feel like we are friends now. Wish Upon a Star is extremely lucky to have someone like Amanda on your team. I will highly recommend her and your company to any of my friends in the future who are planning a Disney trip. Thank you Amanda for all your help, patience and expertise. We had a wonderful trip with memories to last a lifetime.
Thanks to the help of Amanda!
