Shannon did a fabulous job booking a Disney vacation for my family. She had great tips, guided us well in terms of what to do, what to pack, where to go, when to go, what hotels to stay, etc. I would definitely use her services again and would also recommend her to my friends. You wont be disappointed with her knowledge and services!

Our family recently worked with Shannon to book an Alaskan cruise and a Disney Resort vacation. From start to finish, Shannon patiently answered my seemingly endless questions, made great recommendations based on her experience and periodically checked in, even during our trips, to make sure our adventure was everything we hoped it would be and more. If you’re looking for someone who is passionate about travel, professional, on the ball and fun- Shannon is definitely your girl. Bon Voyage!

We recently worked with Shannon to book an incredible Disney vacation! Shannon was so knowledgeable and informative about all aspects of planning, traveling, and navigating the parks. Our trip was such a blast, and mostly in part to her travel suggestions and reservations that were tailored perfectly to our family’s needs. She responded quickly to questions and was extremely patient when we needed to make some changes. She even talked me off the ledge when I realized I left our magic bands at home in N.C!! 🙈 I highly recommend working with Shannon for all of your travel needs! We can’t wait to use her again!

Wish I could give Shannon more than 5 stars!! It was our family’s first time to Disney and we were totally clueless, but thanks to Shannon our trip went perfectly. She got us the best reservations and scheduled our fast passes in great order! I asked a million questions and she so kindly answered them all and gave me lots of information. We highly recommend Shannon and will definitely be using her again!

I love to read about travel + I always seek Shannon’s opinion when I’m researching travel destinations! When we decided to book a family trip to Beaches Turks & Caicos this winter, I turned to Shannon to take care of the details. She is knowledgeable about room options, amenities and excursions and helped lay out options within our budget for us without making us feel overwhelmed. When my daughter was sick the days before our scheduled vacation, Shannon researched possible itinerary changes in the case we needed to postpone or reschedule our trip. Luckily, we all made it to paradise – and while there Shannon checked in on us to make sure our trip was going smoothly. Can’t put a price tag on peace of mind while traveling! Can’t thank her enough for taking care of the details.

Shannon has planned two family vacations for us – one to Disney and one to a Beaches Resort. She has been great to work with – always responsive, detail oriented, and truly cares about making sure her clients are taken care of!

Shannon was super helpful with our first trip to Disney and covered every detail you could imagine! So helpful we booked a Disney Cruise with her a few months after we returned!
