MickeyTravels is excited about our new initiative – The MickeyTravels Agent Virtual Meet & Greet. We will feature a different MickeyTravels agent on a daily 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 Randee Segal from Pennsylvania!

Name: Randee Segal

Where are you from? I live outside of Philadelphia, in Lower Merion, Pennsylvania

First memory of Disney? I was 5 years old and remember staying at the Contemporary Resort. I remember seeing the Monorial go through the building for the first time and standing there truly amazed that a train actually traveled inside my hotel!!!

Disney Monorial

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes?  Overall, I think that Disney helps everyone to unleash their inner child. It brings you back to the part of yourself that DID believe in Magic and allows you to escape to that part of your brain again. All of your outside troubles and worries are left at the door. For children, they already live in that magical world, so for them, Disney creates a realistic extension where everyone around them believes!

Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World will always be my favorite because that is where I went every year with my mother and father. My Dad has been gone for 21 years, but when I still step on to Main Street USA I can feel him walking right beside me.

Favorite Disney Character and why? Alice in Wonderland – always has been and I guess I loved how she was never afraid to follow her own curious thoughts. She exhibited great confidence in every decision she made. I love a girl is not afraid to take some risks!!!

Disneyland California

Favorite Disney Attraction and why? Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride which can only be found in Disneyland California now. I loved driving those old fashioned cars. I could ride them all day long! I never understood why I was so taken with Mr. Toad and the crew.

Favorite Disney Resort and why? Disney’s Polynesian Resort was the resort we stayed at all through the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s. There is a smell and a feeling when I walk in the Great Ceremonial House that just says “HOME” to me.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. This is the first restaurant I took my own children to when I first took them to Disney World. The smiles on their faces and skip in their step is what I remember every time I walk into that restaurant. At Disney, it is never about the food or the attraction….it is all about the Magic of the Memories

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? I love Toy Story Pizza Planet inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios. My kids have always enjoyed it there, and I love sitting in the courtyard and seeing Muppets Vision to my right!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? I am a Muppets fan so I would say that I would love to have Kermit the Frog because he has an unbelievably large heart and would have heartfelt memories to share. I would definitely want to have Mickey Mouse so I could ask questions about all the changes he has seen through the years! And of course we would need some entertainment and laughs at the table, so bring in the Goofster!!!

Favorite Disney snack and why? Dole Whip – need I explain more?

Favorite Disney Movie and why? Mary Poppins was always my favorite and still is. When Saving Mr. Banks was released I enjoyed seeing the behind the scene story. Mary Poppins represented the idea that we could make our own Magic. It was an amazing movie to watch as a child, and I enjoy watching it with my children now over and over…

3 Favorite Disney Song and why? My 3 favorite songs are definitely “Circle of Life”, “Beauty and the Best”, and “When You Wish Upon A Star”. All three songs evoke a lot of emotion in me. All three give me goosebumps and bring me to happy tears. When a song and its lyrics move you that much, something Magical happens. Hard to describe, but if you have ever experienced it you know exactly what I mean.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? I am most like Belle. I often enjoy taking myself on a different adventure through a good book, and I always seem to enjoy the characteristics in people that make them different. When I was a teacher, I most enjoyed the kids who were “out of the box” thinkers or the ones who “marched to the beat of their own drummer”. Belle sees that in the Beast. She sees past the exterior.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? I think I would want to be either Anna or Elsa right now. Frozen has exceeded all of Disney’s expectations. Millions of children look at those two sisters as the greatest pair on earth right now. I would love to have the honor of looking into their eyes when they would approach me and know that I could help to make that much of a difference and create that much Magic in someone else’s heart.

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I have always wanted to be in the parade. I wanted to be someone who found those people in the crowd who needed something extra and wave, or blow a kiss, or do something so they felt special. Disney is all about “immersing” its guests in the experience and I would love to help make that happen!

Disney Travel agents

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? I get to work and learn alongside so many amazing people who share my passion and understand my humor! It is more of a “family” than a co-working environment. Everyone has their strengths and are willing to share them with everyone. Everyone can always learn something new everyday.

Why should I book my vacation with you? I always look for the Magic within your own family or friends. Even though I pay the same amount of attention and dedication to your trip that I would with my own trip, my goal is not to give you MY own experience, but to uncover YOUR story and help to plan YOUR adventure. I enjoy customizing and personalizing each and every Disney vacation that takes me along to plan the Magic.
