First memory of Disney?  I remember going to Magic Kingdom when I was 7.  My parents woke me up extremely early to drive to Disney.  I had no idea!! We were finally going to Disney!! Once we walked in to Magic Kingdom, I was hooked.  The castle was amazing and so magical. I could not take my eyes off of it!!!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes?  The MAGIC comes from Walt’s creativity and imagination.  Everyday this MAGIC creates laughter and fun for all ages.

Favorite Disney destination and why?  Magic Kingdom is my favorite Disney destination.  No matter what your age, your gender, or your frame of mind, Magic Kingdom has what it takes to make everything in life go away and make MAGIC happen.

Favorite Disney Character and why?  I love Jiminy Cricket because “If your heart is in your dream, No request is too extreme”.

And I also love Alice in Wonderland because of her curiosity.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  I love that we can see Buzz Lightyear in Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  The two rides are so interactive and I get to hear kids giggling and competing all at the same time.  I love that these rides become a family fun event.

Favorite Disney Resort and why?  This question is so hard because I feel like each resort offers a different way to experience the Disney way.  I guess I would say the Wilderness Lodge is my favorite.  It is rustic and classic at the same time.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  The California Grill is my favorite restaurant and not for the food.  Don’t get me wrong, the food is amazing and the chefs are top notch.  I love the California Grill for dinner so the castle is in view and the fireworks are at eye level.  The window seating and the view are breathtaking.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Our family enjoys fish.  The Columbia Harbour House is a favorite for us because of all the fish options and malt vinegar.  The upstairs seating allows for ever family to find a spot to enjoy a relaxing and air conditioned meal to reenergize for the next adventure.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why?  As a mom, I would have to eat with Mary Poppins to see where she got that great bag and learn some of her tricks to make chores fun.  As a child, I would have to eat with Peter Pan and find out the secret to never growing up.  Because Alice in Wonderland always taught me to be curious, I would have to eat with the White Rabbit to try to figure out where he was always goingJ

Favorite Disney snack and why?  Snacks are my favorite—any will do but I guess if I have to pick one, I would pick the caramel apples that are created to look like so many different types of Disney characters.  The bakers amaze me with each and everyone – the taste is even more Magical!!!

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  Frozen is all the rage right now and lots of people are tired of hearing anything Frozen related. NOT ME!!! I am in love with the music and the story that portrays Anna and Elsa as girls that work hard to face problems and fears to become powerful women.  I hope these characters help little girls believe in the magic that you can do ANYTHING if you work for it and believe.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  I love music.  I love to sing.  Disney songs are always in my head.  If I had to pick three that I like the best they would be: 1. When You Wish Upon a Star because it helps me remember that wishes do come true.  2.  A Spoonful of Sugar from Mary Poppins because it reminds me that you can turn anything into good.  3.  The whole Frozen soundtrack because of all the powerful messages as well as the vocal range.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why?  I feel like Cinderella most of the time.  I do a lot for my family and home but still enjoy getting dressed up for a night out.  I met my Prince Charming a long time ago and feel lucky to be able to be with him every day.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why?  I would love to be Mickey Mouse.  He is the one most people want to see and that means I would get lots of hugs, smiles and squeals all day long.

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why?  I think the best job would be to escort the characters throughout the day.  It would be amazing to see the children and adult faces when they see their favorite character for the first or hundredth time.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent?  The best part of being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent is to be a part of a bigger family that works to make family, friends, and strangers’ dreams of going to Disney come true.  I am so blessed to have found this extended family and work every day with the pride that we all care about the work we do.  This is not a job; it is a passion.

Why should I book my vacation with you?  As an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, I will help plan the vacation of your dreams like it was my own.  I look forward to doing all the work so that my clients can have all the magic.  I want each person, whether young or old, to experience the Disney magic at every point in their trip no matter where you decide to go.

Name: Genevieve Buck

Where are you from?   Portsmouth, NH

First memory of Disney?  Visiting with my grandparents in the early 80s and riding Dumbo with my grandfather, I think he enjoyed it as much as I did! I can still see his smile, he loved bringing his grandchildren to the Magic Kingdom.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney is magical to me because it is such a fun easy vacation. They take care of you from the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment you leave. Making it easy to travel with children and large groups! It doesn’t matter if you’re in line for a character or grabbing a quick bit to eat. All the cast members I have come across are always smiling and so helpful! It makes the happiness contagious!

Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World is my first love, but after a recent Disney Cruise, the cruise line has crept to the top spot. My family had such a magical time on the Disney cruise. We enjoyed everything from the movies by the pool, to the nightly shows, to the cast members waiting on us every evening, it was simply amazing! Castaway Cay had to be the best day ever. It is a beautiful island with endless activities. We loved running the 5k in the morning and snorkeling in the afternoon. The food was also so tasty. We cannot wait to go back.

Favorite Disney Character and why? My favorite Disney character besides Mickey and Minnie is Cinderella. I just loved how no matter what happened she remained positive and is always kind to everyone, all the while never giving up on her dreams.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  My absolute favorite Disney attraction is Splash Mountain. I love the story, music, and the splash at the end!  It is a must do every time I am there, maybe twice.

Favorite Disney Resort and why? Out of all the Disney resorts I have stayed in my favorite is the Boardwalk. I love the room style and over all theme of the resort. It is a gorgeous place!!  Plus, you cannot beat that location! I love being next to Epcot. After a long day of touring the countries of Epcot, walking back to the Boardwalk and take in the night life is so fun. The nightly entertainment is a nice way to end the day, filled with laughter, and magic.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? Chefs de France in Epcot is my favorite! The food and the service is amazing!!!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Tangierine Cafe in Morocco is my go to quick service place. I love their choices. I feel like I can eat healthy while on vacation, yet still have a delicious lunch or dinner.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? If I could have dinner with three characters my first choice would be Tiana because I am sure she would cook up a yummy meal. My other two characters would be Mickey and Goofy! I think that dinner would be full of laughter and so much fun.

Favorite Disney snack and why? My all-time favorite Disney snack is the Nutella waffle you can get at Sleepy Hallow in the Magic Kingdom. Ok this thing is huge and more like a meal but it is so worth every calorie!!

waffle

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  My all-time favorite Disney movie is Fantasia. I have always loved this movie. The variety of animation and music flows so well. I love the unique stories throughout the movie.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  My first love is Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah such a fun upbeat song. Plus, it reminds me of my favorite ride. The Bare Necessities is my second favorite Disney tune, I absolutely love The Jungle Book and this is a favorite scene of mine. Plus, I always thought Baloo the bear was the coolest character. My third favorite song is When you Wish Upon a Star. Even though it is a slower song it is still a happy tune and makes me smile every time I hear it.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? I am a big fan of winter, the cold never bothers me! So I would have to say I am most like Elsa. Now if I could just whip up some snow like she does I would be happy.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? I would be Cinderella, because 1. I love her dress. It has always been a favorite of mine. 2. To see the wonder on a child’s face and make dreams come true would be a blast. Also she has the coolest carriage in the parade.

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would love to be one of the Disney bakers. To be able to have the talent to make the yummiest treats and be surrounded by the smells all day would be amazing, and delicious!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? I absolutely love listening to vacation plans and help make that happen! It could be a first visit or a 20th I get so excited for families who are heading on a Disney vacation.

Why should I book my vacation with you? You should book with me because I treat every vacation like it is my own. I love to research things for people and help everyone out.  If you have items on your wish list I love to try and make those happen. I love to listen to what you want for your Disney vacation. Everyone is different and Disney offers so many wonderful things, it is always fun to plan a trip of any kind.

MickeyTravels Agent Virtual Meet & Greet with Heather Goldstein

September 6, 2016

MickeyTravels is excited to bring back The MickeyTravels Agent Virtual Meet & Greet! We will feature a different MickeyTravels agent on a regular basis. We’re proud to have the best Disney Travel agents in the world as part of our MickeyTravels team and this will allow you to get to know them even better. Today the spotlight shines on Heather Goldstein from Chester County, PA!

Name: Heather Goldstein

Where are you from? Johnstown, PA and currently live in Chester County, PA

First memory of Disney? My first Disney memory is watching Sleeping Beauty as a little girl and instantly falling in love with the magic of the film. The fairies, good versus evil, and the happy ever after that Disney movies are known for had me from that moment on!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney is MAGICAL because everyone can find something about Disney that truly makes them happy. Young and old, whether watching the films, touring the parks, on a cruise or touring the world, something that is going on will make someone smile. It is truly MAGICAL to see the beautiful memories that can be created through Disney!

Favorite Disney destination and why? I am a Walt Disney World girl! Something about driving under that sign when you arrive transforms you for the entire time that you spend there. It is beautiful to watch the awe and wonder through my children’s eyes, trip after trip. And it is amazing that each trip feels like a totally different and magical experience regardless of the fact that we have seen a particular show or eaten at a certain restaurant before.

Favorite Disney Character and why? Maleficent! There is something about her that I have always loved. She is such a powerful character. I was so happy to see her story brought to life in 2014!

maleficent

Favorite Disney Attraction and why? Toy Story Midway Mania! Each time we ride has become a little competition for myself and my husband-and he can never beat me which makes it that much more fun!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? I have two, and I can’t pick! Boardwalk Inn and Beach Club. The location of these two can’t be beat, the Beach Club has an amazing pool, and both give you the ability to walk into Epcot and walk or take a boat to Hollywood Studios. Plus, with a park hopper ticket you can also take a nice walk through Epcot to get to the monorail for Magic Kingdom. I love Epcot and find it so great to be able to head right into the park at night to watch Illuminations and walk around the World Showcase.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? California Grill. The food is amazing, and we love to get a late reservation and watch the fireworks in Magic Kingdom while we are there.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafe in Animal Kingdom. My family loves lo mein and the honey chicken is so good!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Fairy Godmother, Genie and Sorcerer Mickey! While I was tempted to say Maleficent, Jafar and Dr. Facilier, I think I would prefer a lot of good magic all around the room as opposed to evil magic!

Favorite Disney snack and why? Lefou’s Brew at Gaston’s Tavern. It is just really good!

lb

Favorite Disney Movie and why? Beauty and the Beast. It just always has been since it came out, and I can’t explain a particular reason why!

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why? In Summer (who doesn’t love Olaf?), Reflection, because I think Mulan is one of the coolest princesses ever, and A Whole New World. That scene in Aladdin is one of my favorite scenes in a Disney film!

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Merida. She is strong willed and independent, yet very kind hearted.

merida

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? Belle. I absolutely LOVE the yellow ball gown and it would be amazing to be able to wear it for a day!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would want to work in the Tower of Terror at night! So much fun watching how that attraction takes on a whole new level of “scary” when it is dark!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? I love helping my families sort through what can be an overwhelming process and plan a trip that is absolutely individualized and perfect for them. From choosing a cruise or a park, their dates and resort, dining and fast passes, to tips and assistance while they are traveling it truly is an absolute pleasure for me to work with each and every one of these families every day.

Why should I book my vacation with you? I treat each family’s trip as if it were my own from start to finish! I will make sure that you know and understand all of your options and work to have everything on your wish list met. I will strive to make sure that your family’s trip is truly a MAGICAL experience that will hold wonderful memories in your hearts forever!
