As if my plate wasn’t full enough, I recently decided to become an Enchanted Planner with Whitney World Travel, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. As I’ve shared before, I really love Disney World and all things Disney and wanted to be able to share my happy place with others. But it’s just a family vacation, right? Why would you even need a planner for a Disney trip? All you need is a hotel room and park passes, right?


Here are 10 (of the many) reasons you need an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner for your next magical adventure:


I want you to have the best trip ever. I’m going to answer all of your questions and do whatever I can to be sure you get the magical trip you deserve. You don’t have to wait on hold with Disney for your questions or worry about the details. I’m your personal Disney concierge! And the best part is, I decided to work with Whitney World Travel because their entire team is super knowledgeable about every aspect of a Disney vacation. So it’s not just me you get, but a team of people helping to make sure your trip is perfect!

Save money

As an Enchanted Planner, it’s my job to save you money. A planner will regularly monitor your planned family vacation and ensure you get any discounts there are. Free dining was announced three months after you booked and you qualify? No problem, your planner will make sure you get to take advantage of any amazing offers! And I won’t sell you on package add-ons that make no sense for your family.

Personalized recommendations

An Enchanted Planner will work with you to figure out what is best for you and your family and will make suggestions that will suit your needs.  If your kids are older and into thrill rides, we’ll let you know what your best options are. Younger kids? I’ll tell you the best spots to view the parades and the shows you won’t want to miss.


If there is a problem or confusion, you can count on me to take care of it for you. Again, you won’t have to wait on hold with Disney — I’ll take care of whatever pops up! If your My Disney Experience App isn’t working, no need for you to sit on hold with tech support for an hour — I have you covered! Need a last-minute change? Don’t mess with a call center — I will take care of it for you!

Insider Disney knowledge

I’ve been to Disney a lot, stayed at multiple different locations, and experienced it all different ways. Not only that, as an Enchanted Planner, I get the latest Disney news quickly and can let you know when things are opening and what exciting changes are coming to Disney!

Dining reservations and suggestions

There are over 400 dining options at Disney World. I’ve tried tons of them, or know people who have. Planning an anniversary dinner? I’ll get you a reservation at your choice of some of the most romantic fine dining restaurants around. Looking to grab something quick in between rides? I’ll help you figure out which quick-service restaurants are the best bet for you, or which snacks your family will love.

FastPass+ assistance

Unsure whether you can have the day of your dreams? I’ll plan your FastPasses to maximize your fun. Enjoy the rides and shows you want with little stress.


Do you know how much goes into planning a Disney trip? There is so much to think about, and you don’t have to worry about any of the details because I’ve got you covered. I also have suggestions for so many special things that can enhance your trip and make your celebration that much more special.

Save time

Everything I’ve mentioned is very time-consuming. But you don’t have to think about all the little things that take up so much time. I’ll get you to and from the airport, make sure any special requests are taken care of, and help you focus on what’s really important — this magical time with your family.

It’s free!

The best part about working with an Authorized Disney Travel Planner is that it is free to you. Seriously. All my services as an Enchanted Planner are complimentary to you, so why wouldn’t you take advantage of everything I can offer when you plan your dream trip?
