Name: Melissa Abbott
Where are you from? Plainfield, IL.
First memory of Disney? I was 10 years old, we had never taken a vacation before. My sister had Cerebral Palsy, we smiled and laughed together not needing words, we made memories. It was the best days of our lives together.
What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? The happy memories I make there on every vacation, I get to share the past with my family, and make new memories with my family. I also like that I get to check my worries at the door. That cast members and the Disney service likes to pamper and take care of us.
Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World is my home. I like that it offers 4 parks, something for everyone. Each Park is an adventure!
Favorite Disney Character and why? Mickey Mouse! It all started with him, & he’s my BFF!
Favorite Disney Attraction and why? It’s a classic, Small World! It was my first ride, my sister’s favorite ride, my kids’ first ride. It’s one of our first rides and last rides on our trip!
Favorite Disney Resort and why? Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary. I have a young family of five. We like the living space, full kitchen, and privacy. I also like being a 10-15-minute walk to Magic Kingdom, or a monorail ride away!
Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? Ohana, I like the Polynesian/Asian/American fusion. The service is good. The music and kids activates are nice. The atmosphere and views are relaxing.
Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? Harbor House! I like the ample and quiet seating upstairs. The views are neat too!
3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Not necessarily a character, If I could I would pick Walt Disney, I have so many questions, and would love to hear some stories. I’d like Mickey and Donald to be there too!
Favorite Disney snack and why? I have to pick one?! Dole Whip, Pretzel from Germany, and a Butter Finger Cupcake from Starring Rolls!!!!!
Favorite Disney Movie and why? Meet the Robinsons, sure I love the classics and new movies, but this one is overlooked. “Keep Moving Forward”!
3 Favorite Disney Songs and why? “When Somebody Loves You”, “Baby Mine”, “When Wish Upon a Star”… that last one chokes me up when I’m standing on Main Street U.S.A. looking the castle!
Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Sadness, but not in a gloomy way, I like to say although she had to deal with the unhappy events, she found a way to turn them around into more, to find joy in the more difficult times. She’s also honest and smart!
If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? Mickey Mouse, he’s everyone’s friend, and everyone loves him!
If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would want to be a tour cast member, I enjoy history, I also enjoy making people feel happy and special!
Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? I like every aspect, it’s like puzzle. You get bits and pieces, slowly it comes together. Then quickly it’s put together for all to enjoy. I get to talk with people and learn about their lives and families. I learn what they like and don’t like. They become my family and friends, I enjoy making them happy, and love hearing how their trips went and what memories they made! I am also a Disney Nerd, so this gives me a chance to talk Disney all the time!!!
Why should I book my vacation with you? I love my job; it’s rewarding to help make people happy! I like to provide a warm, friendly, and customizable service to my clients. I am as involved as you want me to be. I do the leg work for you!
