First memory of Disney?  One of my earliest memories was the first time I rode Space Mountain.  I was nervous and as we were taking off, I turned around to my sister and said “If I die, I love you.”  My family still won’t let me live that one down and they remind me every time we go to Disney!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? The way it brings families together and creates wonderful memories.  And makes you feel like a kid again!

Favorite Disney destination and why? Disney World.  So many magical memories there

Favorite Disney Character and why?  Anna – I love her vibrant personality and optimism.  She always finds the good in everything and everyone and is extremely loyal to her family and friends.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  Enchanted Tales with Belle.  I love how the guests get to participate and help tell the story.  It is also a special memory for me because my family was there for the soft opening and my kids were in love with this attraction!  My daughter likes to do it several times every trip and be a different character each time.

Favorite Disney Resort and why? Polynesian Resort.  I love everything about this resort, the rooms, the atmosphere, the location, the food, the cast members…

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  Cinderella’s Royal Table.  There is just something magical about being inside the castle and meeting all the princesses.

Castaway Cay Disney Cruise Line

Favorite Disney Character and why?  Rapunzel. I love how brave and bold she becomes.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  Tower of Terror. The theming is top notch and I love a good thrill ride!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? This is a tough one, but I’m going to have to go with the Port Orleans Resorts. We enjoy the boat to Disney Springs, the carriage rides, and being able to enjoy the amenities of both, regardless of which one we’re at (you’ll find my family walking to French Quarter for beignets if we’re staying at Riverside or walking to Riverside to listen to ‘YeHaa’ Bob if staying at French Quarter).

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  ‘Ohana. Those pot sticks and bread pudding at dinner are to die for!

Favorite Disney snack and why? Just about anything found in the World Showcase at Epcot. It’s impossible to narrow it down. France, Morocco and Germany are my must-dos.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  Tangled. I love Rapunzel!

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?

Belle (Beauty and the Beast) – The first Disney song I memorized. I play this on our way to all Disney trips!

Mother Knows Best (Tangled) – This is an ongoing joke in my house. Mother Gothel obviously wasn’t a great mother, but I love breaking into song when my son or husband asks me ‘why’? … Why?? Because motherrrrrrrrrr knows BEST!

I’m Almost There (Tiana)- My second favorite Disney movie and Princess. I love how upbeat and catchy it is.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Meeko. We’re both funny with a love for food.

MickeyTravels Agent Virtual Meet & Greet with Theresa Benge

August 10, 2017

MickeyTravels is excited to bring back The MickeyTravels Agent Virtual Meet & Greet! We 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 Theresa Benge from Oklahoma!

Name: Theresa Benge

Where are you from? Oklahoma

First memory of Disney? Although my first trip to Walt Disney World was not until adult hood; there was always a Disney presence in our home growing up. I remember the first time I went to a movie theater as a child it was to see Bambi, and I was in love!  The characters just seemed to come to life and you felt like you were  apart of their story; their world. My dad would read to me The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh before bed and I would dream of the hundred acre woods and our far off adventures! Plus my mom always collected Disney memorabilia she loves Mickey!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? I think the beautiful scenery, landscaping, and the friendly smiles you get from cast members at Disney help with the magic.  When you are there and you hear the music and the energy it makes you forget about the little things in life that don’t matter and you can enjoy having fun!

Favorite Disney destination and why? I absolutely love Walt Disney World! There is so much to do and see.  The possibilities of your trip are truly endless and it can be a different experience each and every time you visit.

Favorite Disney Character and why?  Winnie the Pooh – I really enjoyed the time reading with my dad and he’s the most cuddly bear I know!

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  I love Soarin’ – It gives you the total experience of hand gliding from the sights to the smells that you imagine you would smell.

Favorite Disney Resort and why?  Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite resort – It feels so warm and inviting.  The colors and textures are so beautify done next to the carved wood decor.  At night you can also go out and use the night vision glasses to look at animals on the savannah, which is pretty amazing.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  ‘Ohana – We’ve had the character breakfast and dinner at ‘Ohana and both are just wonderful.  It feels very family friendly and it’s at the beautiful Polynesian Village Resort so you get the experience of seeing another resort.

Ohana Character Breakfast at Walt Disney World

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Yorkshire County Fish Shop – I love the fish and chips at Yorkshire!  Plus you have an amazing view of the World showcase while you enjoy your lunch.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Winnie the Pooh. They are some of my favorite characters!

Favorite Disney snack and why? I recently discovered this on our last trip and I’m so glad we found it!  It’s at the Kabuki Cafe in the World showcase and it is called Kakigori, It is Japanese shaved ice with sweet milk topping. It is the perfect cold treat on a nice warm Florida day.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  I’m not sure I can just pick one! Aladdin has always been a favorite of mine, I like the adventures they have and of course the Genie is a favorite. I think it tells us that it is always better to be ourself and to tell the truth.

Stephanie Matt Disney Travel Agent Missouri

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why? Be Our Guest; I Can Show You the World; and Under the Sea!  I think they are all catchy little tunes and super fun to sing along to!

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? I think because I have long hair I relate to Rapunzel, but she also sees a lot of good in the world and people and I try to find the good in every situation.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why? I would absolutely love to be Mickey! I think he brings so much joy to so many people and seeing all those smiles would just be so magical.

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 at Magic Kingdom! You get to talk about all things Disney and have interaction with others who love Disney as much as you do.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Talking about Disney! I love everything about planning a trip, the excitement of counting down the days, discussing where you want to go on what day, making dining reservations, making fast passes, and seeing the joy on families faces when they take pictures!  It is memories that will last a lifetime!

Why should I book my vacation with you? When you book a vacation with me, I will treat your vacation with the care and thought as if I were going on that vacation.  I will put every effort and thought into planing the most magical Disney experience I can.
