Leesa Williams

Owner & Travel Advisor

Specialties: Disney Destinations, Cruises, All Inclusive Resorts

I fell in love with traveling in college when I was lucky enough to tour the United States with a music group.  I also had the opportunity to live in Mexico and Honduras for a short time on mission trips.

Following college, I worked at one of the most famous destinations in the world: Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. There I learned the importance of customer service and hospitality. I also realized how much time, money and effort people put into planning their vacations.

Sara Arnold

Travel Advisor

Specialties: Disney Destinations

Growing up in a suburb of Houston as the oldest of five children, I didn’t travel often. Aside from our family’s annual trip to the Texas Hill Country, our vacations were few and far between. It wasn’t until I was a senior in high school that we finally took the trip of a lifetime to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. And the rest...is history! 

 

Since that first trip in 2008, I’ve taken a Disney vacation nearly every year. From carefully planned family vacations to relaxed romantic getaways in Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and, even Disneyland Paris, I feel like I’ve done it all! 

 

Travel, especially to a Disney resort, can be daunting, and that’s where I come in! There is nothing I enjoy more than creating customized, memorable expEARiences! From thrill-seekers, to foodies, and everything in between, it would be my pleasure to sprinkle a little pixie dust and make sure your vacation is as magical as it can be.

Maggie Thomas

Travel Advisor

Specialties: Disney Destinations, Family Travel

My name is Maggie and I grew up in a very small town in upstate NY. Traveling has always been something that was you load everyone up in the car and head to your next adventure. I have continued that tradition with my family and our annual Disney adventure. I have been to 13 States and my son who is 7 has been to 11. Traveling with your family is the ultimate adventure and I cannot wait to help you with this! 

My family and I head to Disney once a year and try to fit in as much as we can, while still making sure to check out those old favorites! Disney has been a part of my life since I was 5 when my parents would take me on vacation to our favorite resort (the Poly) and monorail to the Magic Kingdom. There is nothing like strolling down Main Street and seeing the castle, but it is even more magical seeing your children and family experience it for the first time! 

I am here to help you with any questions you may have and look forward to helping you plan your own fantastic journey and if you are looking to take a road trip, I have a lot of experience in that area as well. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Kelsey Swearengen

Travel Advisor

My name is Kelsey Swearengen and I am a born and raised Texan! I currently reside as a transplant with my husband Cole in Huntsville AL, with our sweet pup Bella. We are both foodies, and constantly pricing out and planning vacations for our next adventure! 

 

My mom instilled in me a love for Walt Disney World at a very early age - I remember sitting at the kitchen table and planning our family trips together. My favorite part was planning the FOOD, and that continues to be my favorite part of every Disney trip! I’d love to share my must have snack list with you!

 

While I’ve always loved Disney, I truly fell in love with travel during my sophomore year of college when I was able to study abroad in Greece! During that time, I visited Israel, Turkey, Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Scotland and London. I will never forget how magical it was to take a tour of the Scottish Highlands - I didn’t want the day to end! 

 

While my love of Disney is still very strong, I want to help show you a little bit of the world, whether that requires a passport or be right in your very own home state! Traveling can be stressful, because FOMO!! How can you possibly squeeze it all in (especially all the Disney snacks??!)? Let me take that stress off your plate, and help you find the absolute best things for you in every place you travel to!

Chris Williams

Creative Director

Specialties: Design & Marketing, Europe, All Things Florida

I grew up in Central Florida going to Disney, playing soccer and diving in the Florida Keys and Bahamas. Being one of those spoiled Florida kids, I didn't realize how special it was to have Disney World in your back yard until I moved away for a bit. Now we're back to stay and taking full advantage of it. 

On the work side I have been doing graphic design and marketing for over 15 years, so my main job is to "make things look pretty". However, I have done most things "Florida" and have travelled extensively in Europe, and I would be glad to share that knowledge to help you plan an adventure.
