Today the spotlight shines on Shannon Wilt from Lovettsville, VA!

Name:  Shannon Wilt

Where are you from?  I am from Lovettsville, VA. It’s a small quirky German settlement in Northern Virginia. I live there with my husband and our three children.

First memory of Disney?  My grandparents took me on my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 6 years old. I remember being terrified of riding Big Thunder Mountain, but my no-nonsense Marine Grandfather insisted I get on the ride! I had so much fun and it became one of my favorite rides at Disney.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Everything! The unparalleled service provided to you by each Cast Member. The overwhelming thrill, excitement, and wonder that washes over you while enjoying any Disney experience. The amazing way that a Disney vacation brings together family members, old and young. The Disney attention to detail amazes me as well, even just standing in line for an attraction is an experience itself…I honestly could go on, but we would be here for days J

Favorite Disney destination and why? My favorite Disney destination is Walt Disney World. I have made so many amazing memories there with friends and family, and every trip feels like a completely different experience!

Favorite Disney Character and why? My favorite Disney character is Ariel. The Little Mermaid was the movie that sparked my Disney passion. I felt an emotional connection to the Ariel as soon as I heard her sing Part of Your World.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  That is a tough one! I think I must go with Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid, in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland. When this ride opened, it took me right back to being a kid again!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? My favorite resort is All Star Movies. I don’t spend much time in my room while in Disney, so I love the deal I get staying in the Value resorts! Plus, the resort theme really puts you in that Disney spirit!

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? I love so many of the Disney restaurants, and try to eat somewhere new on every trip (hopefully one day I’ll be able to say I’ve eaten at them all!) Most recently I have fallen in love with Yak & Yeti in the Animal Kingdom! My husband and I were shocked we had never eaten there before, and will be returning soon!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  La Cantina de San Angel in the Epcot World Showcase!  I love their Tacos de Barbacoa, and their margaritas are always refreshing.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? The Tremaine sisters and Gaston! I believe dinner with these three would provide a very entertaining evening, they are some of my favorite meet & greets!

Favorite Disney snack and why? Mickey Pretzel with cheese, it is delicious and who doesn’t love their food Mickey-shaped!?

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  My favorite Disney movie is Princess and The Frog, it was my daughter’s first movie in the theaters. Watching her get out of her seat and dance to all the songs throughout the movie reminded me of my first time watching The Little Mermaid. That’s the Disney MAGIC, it evokes those amazing childhood memories.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, it was the song that made me fall in love with Disney movies. “Almost There” from Princess and The Frog, Tiana is singing about her trials and tribulations and how she has almost made it. The first time I heard this song I was a single mom, I thought about my struggles I had overcome up to that point and I felt like I could relate to Tiana’s excitement about getting to where she wanted to be in life, it was a powerful moment for me. “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins, I’ve always loved Mary Poppins but I never connected to this song until I saw Saving Mr. Banks and learned the backstory behind it. If you haven’t seen Saving Mr. Banks, I highly recommend it! I can’t watch Mary Poppins without “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” bringing a tear to my eye now.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Oh gosh, I feel like I’ve related to a few different characters in every stage of life. Now I think I am most similar to Mrs. Incredible, taking care of and loving my family!

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? I’d love to be one of the Tremaine sisters. They just have so much fun with the guests and each other, I love the idea of getting to make people laugh all day! -plus, I could never be a Princess, I don’t have the singing voice!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would want to be a Cast Member at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! I’d love to help make the dreams of some of the smallest Disney guests come true, by transforming them into their favorite Princess!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Hands down the best part of my job is knowing that I could help make MAGICAL moments and memories for my clients and their families!

Why should I book my vacation with you? The obvious reason being that my services are completely FREE, but also by booking with me you will have the comfort in knowing I will handle planning your family vacation with the same care, attention to detail, and passion for Disney, as I handle my own.
