Michelle Stieb

Get to Know Me


Hi! My name is Michelle Stieb from Hoffman Estates, IL. I have been a travel planner specializing in Disney destinations since 2015. Growing up, I was blessed to visit the Walt Disney World Resort every summer. At that time, the Magic Kingdom was the only theme park on Disney property. Because of that, the Magic Kingdom has always been my most favorite park. In keeping with the family tradition, I share my love of all things Disney with my husband and our two young daughters. As a family, we make a point of visiting the Walt Disney World Resort or the Disneyland Resort each year.

In high school, I worked at The Disney Store for several years. As a college student, I was honored to be accepted into Disney’s College Program to work, live and learn the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort and its key business practices and industry standards. First, I worked as a Merchandise Hostess at the Magic Kingdom on Main Street U.S.A. My second college program experience was working as a Front Desk Hostess at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Being a Disney cast member was a dream come true. I have been in the corporate hotel and travel industry ever since. In addition to that, I enjoy sharing my expertise and passion for Disney by helping to “plan the magic” for other families.

  1. I loved working with Michelle for our last Disney World trip. I had never used a travel advisor before but I’m so glad I did. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, and sweet. She responded quickly to my emails and calls full of questions and helped us easily with a hotel change. You can tell how much she loves Disney and wants your trip to be special and memorable. I definitely recommend her!

  2. Michelle is simply the best! She helped us plan our Disney World Trip 3 times… We were originally scheduled to go for the first time in 25+ years with our daughter for the first time in May 2020. She booked our room with meal package and made all of our meal and fast pass reservations. She met with us several times to answer questions and helped us customized the best trip for us. Then Covid hit and we postponed the trip to the end of July 2020. Once again, Michelle was awesome! She spent hours cutting through all the red tape with Disney to change our reservation. She was so understanding and supportive when we decided to postpone our trip again to May 2021. So, for the 3rd time, she rebooked our room reservation and had our trip insurance transferred to yet another new reservation. As we got closer to the trip, she made our meal reservations again. With the current state of Covid and Disney’s mask mandates, we were on the fence about going or postponing. Michelle was awesome in consulting with us; sharing what she had been hearing from those that had gone since Disney reopened in July 2020. She just shared the facts and didn’t pressure us to make our go/no go decision. We ultimately decided to go and it was the best decision we ever made. Michelle put together a suggested daily itinerary that aided us in maximizing our time and truly elevated our experience. Due to limited capacity in the parks and Michelle’s guidance on when to arrive at the park and which rides to target first, we were able to ride every ride at least once and several of the popular ones more than once. The trip couldn’t have gone better and we can’t wait to book our next trip with her.

  3. For my 70th birthday I decided to take my whole family to Disney World. This involved multiple reservations in various sizes of rooms, large group dining, and making sure everyone had fun,from grandchildren to grandparents. Although I have been to Disney before, this was more than I felt I could handle. Michelle handled it seamlessly. With her knowledge she was able to organize all of this for me, so we were able to see and do everything we wanted. She explained how the new Disney programs worked (i.e.Genie+) and gave me tools to understand it all. When we hit a snag, she fixed everything without my having to panic about it all. She truly was a joy to work with.
    Michelle helped to create a truly magical time for us and we can’t wait to go back and work with her again!
