Hi! I’m Julie, and I LOVE Disney!  My husband’s family spent MANY of their family vacations at Disney World when he was a kid. He started that same tradition with our family! When we visited Disney World the first time our daughters were ages 9 and 2. They are now 26 and 18! They have literally grown up Disney! With every trip our love for Disney grows, and they still love going and cannot wait for the next trip!

We have experienced so many amazing adventures, experiences, and memories that will last a lifetime on these vacations “home”. From character photos and autographs in a stroller to senior pictures, from a first haircut to High School graduation pictures, from pin trading to resort hopping, from The Barnstormer to Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, from dance competitions at the Wide World of Sports Complex to fishing excursions on Crescent Lake, from 5K family fun runs to the Dopey Challenge, we have had a WIDE variety of experiences at Disney World! We really try and make each trip unique and new in some way, and given there is soooooo much to do and see that is EASY to accomplish!

With every trip we took, the planning became more and more “my thing”. I enjoyed the planning, the creating, researching the resorts, watching for sales, looking for new dining options, etc., and even the countless phone calls to Disney for modifications. Our trips also became more of a large family vacation as other groups of our family started to join us. My planning skills quickly grew to include multi-family planning. This took my love for planning Disney vacations to a whole other level! At this point, it became obvious that this was my passion, and this was what I loved to do and exactly what I should be doing. I joined the Wish Upon a Star With Us family in early fall 2016 and have loved every minute of it!

Whether you are experiencing Disney World for your first time or your 25th time, I am here to help! I will help customize your family’s magical Disney vacation and take out all the worry, hassle, and stress that can come from planning a vacation. I watch for sales to ensure you are getting the best “deal”. In other words, let me do the work while you sit back, relax, and enjoy!

I am not limited to only Disney though! I can also help with your company’s business travel, Sea World, Universal Studios, cruises, etc. I look forward to assisting you and your family with your next vacation. Where do you want to go? Let’s get started!!

Goes above and beyond!

I want to say Julie is great and goes above and beyond to help with my travel needs.  I have a company that has employees traveling every week all across the country.  Julie has booked my hotel rooms and conference rooms for over 3 years.  I tell her the cities we are going to, how many people and an area I want to stay and she does the rest.  I have anywhere from 5 to 30 people traveling every week and I would think this would be a huge feat and very difficult to handle, but Julie comes through every week without a hitch.  She gets us the best location for the area we desire, but also makes sure we are getting the best price.  I had the misconception that using a travel agent to book my travel arrangements would cost me more money, but somehow Julie is able to get me the same or better prices than the major companies like hotels.com or Kayak and more importantly, saves me the time from having to book them all myself.  If you currently have a company or travel for a living, I highly recommend letting Julie take over that aspect of your life.

We couldn’t have done it without you!

We just got back from an amazing Disney World trip. Thank you so much Julie, we couldn’t have done it without you! Love the packet and reminder notices you gave us so we were organized and knew when everything was! You made everything so easy! We all had a great and relaxing vacation and a big part of it was because of you! I will be recommending all my friends to you when they go on their vacations! Also we will be in touch to schedule our next trip with you! Thanks again!

Julie is your girl!

If you want to go Disney, Julie is your girl.  My family and I went to Disney this January with Julie’s assistance and guidance and it was without a doubt the most well prepared and put together trip I have ever taken.  She had everything lined up and taken care of for us.  We were there 5 days and went to all four Disney Parks.  She had us going to the park that would be the least busy that day of the week and had all our fast passes set up.  She recommended the dining plan and I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I am definitely a believer now.  It absolutely saved us money using the dining plan, the food was delicious, and I think it’s impossible to use all the credits they give you.  

Walt Disney World is a pretty overwhelming place.  The parks are way bigger than you could ever imagine and trying to figure out the best routes to take and how to avoid crowds is an absolute vacation killer.  Going to Disney and knowing you have a plan in place so that you can enjoy your vacation instead of trying to figure everything out is priceless!  Thank you so much Julie!

Julie is amazing!

Julie is amazing at helping you plan your dream Disney vacation!! She is knowledgeable, patient and answered all my questions with enthusiasm and passion. Her true love and passion for Disney shines through, and I knew she was the perfect person to plan the trip. She explained how things worked, gave me tips to be efficient when I was there so I wouldn’t miss anything, and taught me about things that I didn’t even know existed. I would have been completely lost without her expertise and knowledge. Also, she’s so friendly and personable and truly shows true joy in helping you plan a trip of a lifetime. I cannot highly recommend her service enough!!!
