Name: Stephanie McCarty

Where are you from? Born and raised in FLORIDA, an hour from Walt Disney World, but currently live in Ohio.

First memory of Disney? Walt Disney World opened the same year I was born, so we visited often since it was so close by. I remember my dad riding “It’s a Small World” 13 times in a row with me!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney brings so much happiness to so many people, young and old. I love that no matter how many times I go there, I always find something new to enjoy and appreciate. It truly does feel like going home!

Favorite Disney destination and why? I LOVE Walt Disney World so much because I’ve visited with my parents as a child, my own kids as an adult, and even had a few adults only trips with my husband and friends – so it holds a very special place in my heart. I always feel like I’m HOME when I’m there. However, I took my first Disney Cruise this year and fell in love! My family has another planned for 2015.

Favorite Disney Character and why? As a child, I loved all the classic Disney characters, especially Goofy and Pluto because I loved dogs. Now, Stitch is my favorite because my daughter met him for the first time when she was about 3 years old – she was tired and cranky after a very long day so she was lying on the floor in the Animation Studios area at DHS; Stitch got down next to her and tried to cheer her up – it was so sweet! He’s been our must-see character every Disney trip since then!

Favorite Disney Attraction and why? Soarin’ because there is no other ride like it at any other theme park – it’s such a unique experience!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? I love both the Beach Club for it’s awesome pool complex and fantastic Boardwalk location – close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios; AND the Polynesian for it’s wonderful atmosphere and amenities – including the monorail access and close proximity to Magic Kingdom. There’s nothing like watching the Electrical Water Pageant and Wishes from Poly Beach, with a Dole Whip in hand – the resort just feels like home!

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? ‘Ohana for breakfast – so we can see our favorites: Lilo and Stitch, along with Mickey and Pluto; and for the delicious family-style breakfast and our favorite juice anywhere!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? Hmm—we have a lot of favorite quick service restaurants at Disney. I love getting corn dog bites at Casey’s Corner after a fun-filled Magic Kingdom day – it just feels so all-American  We also love having lunch at Be Our Guest – the Beast’s Castle is gorgeous inside and there are some delicious dessert choices. (This is also a great option if you’re unable to get into Be Our Guest for dinner).

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Lilo, Stitch and Mickey, and we’re lucky to have all 3 of them, along with one of my childhood favorites, Pluto, at the ‘Ohana character breakfast!

Favorite Disney snack and why? I can’t pick a favorite here either! Dole Whips for their pineapple yummy-ness and Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bars because, well, they’re Mickey Bars!

Animation Studios

Favorite Disney Movie and why? The Little Mermaid because I love the soundtrack!

3 Favorite Disney Song and why? See above: I love the soundtrack from Disney’s Little Mermaid, especially Part of this World and Under the Sea. I also love the music from Soarin’! Listening to it makes me feel like I’m on my favorite ride at Disney!

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? As a kid, I was always drawn to Goofy – because he’s tall like I am and has a similar Goofy personality.

Animation Studios

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? Stitch, because he’s my favorite – he has a great personality and gets to have lots of fun!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would love to be “friends” with one of the characters because you get to see all of the kids’ faces filled with joy when they get to meet their favorite characters!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Helping families plan magical Disney vacations! I especially love helping families with their first trips, when it’s all brand new to them. First-timers are often a little overwhelmed when they start looking at the planning, so I love to help take the stress away, allowing them to relax and enjoy their vacation! It is so rewarding when they come back and have had such a wonderful time and are so appreciative of the guidance I was able to provide. I love helping families make wonderful memories together!

Why should I book my vacation with you? Because I love Disney and treat each family’s vacation as if it were my own – paying special attention to the details that help make a Disney vacation MAGICAL. I will provide lots of tips and helpful information to make the most of your vacation, and help with the planning every step of the way. I am honored when clients have enjoyed working with me so much that they refer me to their friends, or book another vacation of their own! I am so fortunate to have a job that allows me to bring Disney magic to so many families!
