I certainly have made a couple of those mistakes myself, but I have learned the right way to do Disney! Haha!

And I can now share that knowledge with you when you’re ready to book a vacation to a Disney destination. Not only can I book Disney World, but also Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, and Aulani (Disney’s Hawaiian resort), and I have experience with Disney’s beach resorts at Hilton Head, SC, and Vero Beach, FL.
