Today the spotlight shines on Erica Lamb from Louisville, KY!

Name:Erica M. Lamb

Where are you from?

I am from Germantown, Ohio, but have moved around quite a bit. I spent most of my childhood in Waukesha, Wisconsin, middle school and high school years in Dublin, Ohio, and then moved to Florida where I spent the next 17 years. I currently reside in Louisville, Kentucky.

First memory of Disney?

I didn’t make my first trip to Disney World until I was 20 years old so I remember most of it quite well. I loved the Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain and, of course, my first glimpse of Cinderella’s Castle while walking down Main Street U.S.A., was amazing! However, the most important memory I have of that first visit was spending it with my entire family, including my grandparents who have since passed away. I will always have the memory of that trip even if they are no longer with us.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes?

Disney is magical because once I’m there, the real world fades away and I feel like I have been transported to another place entirely.

Favorite Disney destination and why?

Walt Disney World! Where else can I go with my family and know that everyone will have a great time? Amazing international restaurants, tons of rides and shows, spectacular shopping, beautiful resorts, and plenty of recreational activities and non-park attractions make it the perfect place to spend a week (or more)!

Walt Disney World

Favorite Disney Character and why?

Stitch! He’s so sassy!

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?

I love the Haunted Mansion and have to ride it multiple times each visit, it’s just the right mix of creepy and fun. I also have a great fondness for Peter Pan’s Flight – I always feel like a kid again on this ride.

Favorite Disney Resort and why?

Port Orleans – French Quarter! I love the tranquil setting and strolling the grounds in the evening. The rooms are as beautiful as the grounds! I also like that it’s a very small resort, which makes getting around that much easier. Not to mention the boat ride from the resort to Downtown Disney. Oh, and the beignets!

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?

Boma, Boma, Boma! This is a must do each and every trip – non-negotiable. Boma has an amazing assortment of food and will please everyone from the pickiest eater to the most adventurous. Everything is prepared to perfection and I love sampling a little of everything on the buffet. It’s a little hard making room for dessert, but I always manage somehow. I also love taking an after-dinner stroll through the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the grounds to look at the giraffes and zebras.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?

  1. Tangerine Café in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot – the vegetarian platter offers a sample of 4 different salads, plus hummus and bread. It’s very filling, but also light enough that I don’t feel tired after lunch.
  2. Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café – I have to have a burger from here each trip just so I can indulge in the toppings bar. Sautéed onions and mushrooms – yum! Also, the back patio offers a spectacular view of the Magic Kingdom.
  3. Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion at Epcot – It has its own bakery! The food is so fresh and this restaurant has such a great variety of dishes. But really, the bakery keeps me coming back!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why?

Stitch, Mary Poppins and Alice. I have always loved Alice in Wonderland and would love to hear about her adventures. Stitch would be great entertainment, and I would love to watch Mary Poppins try to correct his behavior throughout a meal.

Figment Disney Mascot

Favorite Disney snack and why?

My absolute favorite snack is the fruit tulip that I used to be able to find in Epcot at the Kringla Og Kafe in the Norway pavilion. This delicious treat has a cookie that is dipped in chocolate, filled with custard and topped with fresh berries. A perfect breakfast or mid-afternoon snack! I also really like green tea ice cream which can be found at a cart outside of the Japan pavilion.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?

This will sound pretty strange coming from a Disney enthusiast, but I really don’t like Disney movies. Most of them are just too sad for me. However, way back in 1973, Disney produced a live action film called Mystery in Dracula’s Castle, which starred Johnny Whitaker of Family Affair fame, and I have very fond memories of this film – even though it scared me at the time. This was presented on The Wonderful World of Walt Disney which used to air on Sunday evenings.

Alice in Wonderland Disney

3 Favorite Disney Song and why?

Grimm Grinning Ghosts – Spooky and fun, I love singing along with this tune.

A Pirate’s Life for Me – A swashbuckling tune that makes a great travel tune while driving to Florida.

The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers – I love singing this to my dog when she is in a particularly bouncy mood.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why?

Alice in Wonderland, because I have been cast as Alice in a few different productions.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why?

Figment – the ultimate imaginative trickster. What fun!

Alice in Wonderland Disney

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why?

I would love to be a tour guide on The Great Movie Ride. I love all of those movies, and it requires a bit of acting.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent?

Guiding my clients through all of the different options and knowing that I am helping them choose the best possible resort, entertainment and dining options.

Why should I book my vacation with you?

I love to get to know my clients and put together options that will make their vacation personal, unique and, of course, magical.
